Gattuso took over after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked despite Napoli's 4-0 Champions League win over Genk booking their place in the last 16 in midweek. But the former AC Milan coach's reign got off to the worst possible start as the southerners drop to eighth — 17 points behind leaders Inter Milan who play Fiorentina on Sunday.

Late Designer Azzedine Alaïa’s Personal Couture Archive Revealed – to Students

PARIS — Despite his best efforts, fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa never managed to keep his personal collection of couture garments a complete secret.
“Every time he went to a fashion auction, he used to say he was going to the physiotherapist,” said Carla Sozzani, Alaïa’s close friend and cofounder of the Association Azzedine Alaïa, speaking at an event at the maison’s headquarters in Paris on Thursday.
“We would say to him, ‘But you already went yesterday,’” she continued. “And then he’d come back laden with huge plastic parcels that he would hide under his desk. Just last month, we discovered some of those parcels: They contained rare Vionnet and Balenciaga pieces.”
The extent of Alaïa’s personal couture collection was discovered following the designer’s passing in November 2017, and was somewhat overwhelming.
More than 10,000 garments, ranging from vintage Vionnet, Charles James, Schiaparelli, Jean Patou and around 200 Balenciaga items, to more contemporary pieces like Martin Margiela and Comme des Garçons, lie in the fashion house’s archives in the Marais, left without any directions from the collector himself.
“I knew Alaïa was collecting, as I often saw him in the auction rooms and he always snagged the best pieces,” Olivier Saillard, fashion historian and director of

Courtney Love Pens Heartbreaking Message To Late Husband Kurt Cobain

Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain turned 23 on Aug. 18, and the milestone seems to have stirred some emotions in the rock star. 

On Aug. 19, Love shared a photo of herself with her late husband, Kurt Cobain, in bed with Frances when she was just a baby. Love captioned the photo, “My greatest love and our precious Bean #missyou #memories.” 

My greatest love and our precious Bean #missyou #memories

A photo posted by Courtney Love Cobain (@courtneylove) on

Two days later, the 51-year-old singer shared another image from the same photo shoot and penned a heartbreaking message to Cobain, who died in 1994 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

“Makes me feel so sad. Our baby is all grown up now. Jesus Kurt look at her face, what on earth were you thinking..!?!? God I miss you, we all miss you #family #memories #turnbacktime #lovehim,” she wrote.

While Cobain never really seems to fade from the headlines, the late rocker was in the spotlight again earlier this year with the release of the documentary “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,” which saw Frances Bean acting as executive producer and had Love’s full support.

Man Plants Endless Lanes Of Sunflowers To Honor Beloved Late Wife, Benefit Cancer Patients

This man’s love for his late wife has only blossomed. 

Don Jaquish‘s beloved wife, Babette, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of cancer, back in 2006, according to ABC News. Sadly, she died late last year.

Babette was a huge fan of sunflowers, so Don honored her in the most fitting way possible — by planting a giant stretch of  sunflowers for her. They bloomed this month and Don plans to harvest and sell the seeds to help benefit cancer patients as part of his organization Babbette’s Seeds of Hope, ABC News reported.

“She got to be known as the sunflower lady of the community,” Don told ABC News of his wife. “So after she passed away, I thought it would be a tribute to her to plant 4.5 miles of sunflowers on each side of Highway 85.”

The “sunflower strip” covers the land of five different farms, KARE 11 reported. Don, who planted the flowers over a span of a week, was able to rent land from his neighbors at a reasonable price to complete the project.

He told ABC News that it was Babbette who originally came up with the idea of selling sunflower seeds and donating a portion of the proceeds to cancer research. About a month after his wife’s death, Don formed Babbette’s Seeds of Hope. Through the group, he’ll sell the seeds in bags, which will soon be available for purchase, with Babbette’s face on them along with her story printed on them. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to hospitals, research and patient advocacy, according to the company’s website.

It’s something the loving husband says would’ve made his wife proud. 

“I think she would be smiling,” Don told ABC News. “We had an amazing response. We’ve had people all over the world send emails.”

While the sunflowers took a lot of time and effort to plant, Don says it was all worth it — especially for a woman whose spirit matched the beauty of the flowers. 

“They fit her personality,” the widower told KARE11. “She’d walk into a room and her smile would light up a whole room.”

Months after her Babbette’s death, Don found a note from his wife stuck in a folder. In light of the sunflowers and their seeds, her words certainly ring true. 

“You move on and live each day,” Babbette wrote, according to KARE11. “Feel me in the morning air, and when you wake up and make your coffee. I will be there always.”

Former Marine Travels 15 Miles On Horse And Foot To Honor Late Veteran

There was no horsing around for this man, who stopped at nothing to honor a fellow veteran.

Richard Kowalker, a 66-year-old from Middletown, Connecticut, often attends veteran funerals with his “riderless horses” as part of a tradition to honor a soldier’s service. In this custom, a horse with boots set backwards and no rider in the saddle follows the casket.

The 66-year-old, who served as a Marine in Vietnam, was set to attend a funeral for World War II veteran Norman Varney this past Saturday. But the night before, he realized that his horse trailer was damaged and he would be unable to cart his horses there. That setback didn’t stop Kowalker, however; he alternately walked and rode the two horses through the night, traveling more than 15 miles to make it to the funeral, WSFB reported.

“The Marine Corps motto is “semper fidelis” — Latin for ‘always faithful.’ … I have a lifelong commitment to adhere to. Once a Marine, always a Marine,” Kowalker told The Huffington Post in an email. “Sgt. Norman Varney was at Iwo Jima in World War II, the most famous battle in Marine Corps history. I considered it an honor to be in the presence of such people. … I am quite sure he would have done the same for me if the situation was reversed.”

The extraordinary gesture touched many and a fundraising page was created to help pay for a new horse trailer. Donors have already doubled the original goal, raising more than $ 4,000 for Kowalker.

Police from different towns along the walk escorted him during his trek, according to the fundraising page. Later on, Ken Yavis, who owns a horse trailer, spotted Kowalker, his horse, Melody, and his friend’s horse, Sassy, WFSB reported. Yavis got his own trailer and helped Kowalker for the rest of the way, allowing the animals to take a break at his house and eventually bringing them to the service.

Yavis, like many others, was moved by Kowalker’s devotion.

“I never got a chance to serve,” Yavis told WFSB. “But someone like that who continues to give, you have to help him.”

For the humble Kowalker, his actions weren’t anything out of the ordinary.

“I gave my word and I like to be a person of my word,” he told WFSB.

11 Things You Need to Know About the Late Great Couturiere Madame Carven

WWD reports that Marie-Louise Carven-Grog (born Carmen de Tommaso, and later known as Madame Carven) died today in France at the age of 105. In the post-war era when Christian Dior, Pierre Balmain, and Cristobal Balenciaga were making headlines in fashion, Carven was one of the very few female designers of her time—and an innovator, as well, patenting the push up bra in 1950.

carven-fititng-model-1950

Madame Carven fitting a model in 1950.

Here are 11 of her most fascinating fashion achievements.

1. A couturiere for petite women: The designer launched her namesake house in 1945 with the aim of dressing petite women like her (she was 5’1″).

2. Au revoir corset: Carven wanted women to feel comfortable in her clothes and so she loosened haute couture‘s waist-whittling reins and offered billowing silhouettes that allowed women to move easily in her designs.

3. You can thank her for: Pink gingham!

4. She was into fast(er) fashion: In Carven’s day, Paris was all about haute couture—an exclusive, expensive made-to-measure business. Alongside fellow couturiers Jacques Fath, Robert Piguet, Jean Desses, and Jeanne Paquin, she pioneered prêt-a-portèr, or ready-to-wear. Customers were finally able to get high fashion, way, way, faster.

5. She took fashion shows on the road: Today, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Dior often take their collections out for a spin and show in different cities (think Seoul, Palm Springs, and Cannes). Carven, however, was the first to do so, presenting her collections in Egypt, Thailand, Morocco, Cuba, Brazil, Singapore and Mexico.

6. The OG It-girl brand: Iconic French singer Edith Piaf was a Carven fan, as was Brigitte Bardot, who wore Carven at her 1959 wedding.

7. She invented one of the first push-up bras: Carven worked with a lingerie maker to patent the Sylvène, a push-up bra.

8. She loved Hollywood: In 1954, Carven worked with legendary costume designer Edith Head to create costumes for Grace Kelly in Hitchcock’s Rear Window.

9. A national treasure of France: In 1978, she was named a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and in 2009, she was made a Commander of the Legion of Honor, France’s highest distinction for civilians.

10. She designed for half a century: Madame Carven retired at age 84—48 years after she founded her fashion house.

11. She celebrated a century in style: French style icons Loulou de la Falaise and Claude Montana were among the luminaries who celebrated the designer’s 100th birthday in November 2009. Carven blew out the candles on a pistachio Laduree macaron cake while wearing a matching pistachio-green Carven suit.

Today, Carven is designed by artistic directors Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud. The collection still has the joy and exuberance the house’s founder. Carven’s former artistic director, Guillaume Henry has often said that Madame Carven was a constant presence—and that they had regular conversations, well into her 100th year. Madame Carven will surely be remembered, as will her impact on all of our wardrobes.

Podcast Reviews: The Late Show Podcast and Mike and Tom Eat Snacks

2015-06-05-1433543507-5526733-late_show.jpegDavid Letterman has said his last goodbyes and his show’s set in the Ed Sullivan Theatre has been carted off, consigned to the showbiz Dumpster. Next up is Stephen Colbert, who is busy running test shows, whipping his writers into a frenzy to generate material, and trying to nail down the new character that he’ll become to replace the OLD Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report.

Fortunately for his fans that have been jonesing for his return, Colbert has turned to podcasting to fill the spare moments in his busy days getting ready for the September 8th launch of the new version of The Late Show. And the debut episode of The Late Show Podcast, entitled “In The Bad Room with Stephen” is a yack-packed 20 minutes that doesn’t disappoint.

Recorded in “the bad room” — a square, windowless chamber in the bowels of the show’s production office, Colbert is joined by Tom Purcell, his executive producer, and Opus Moreschi, the head writer and supervising producer for the new show. Their conversation rambles around a lot of subjects having to do with the process of gearing up for the show.

Colbert’s improv chops are in full view, as he throws off great, bone-dry lines and quasi-jokes as this initial show unwinds. One topic checked off is the width of the new audience seats in the studio — will they be 21 inches or 24 inches wide? Equated by Colbert as being for “the European ass or the American ass” and, as one might expect, his studio’s seats are going to be spec’d for the American ass.

The Late Show Podcast may well be become a viral phenomenon of its own before the three months runs out and CBS takes the warps off of the new The Late Show Starring with Stephen Colbert television show.

2015-06-05-1433543552-7606083-MATES.jpegThe popular (and only) snack-rating show, Mike and Tom Eat Snacks, may also be the most sporadically appearing podcast (besides my own) on the web. But hosts Michael Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh are back for two consecutive weeks now, so maybe there’s a trend emerging.

Or maybe it’s just because Cavanagh’s character, the Reverse Flash, was killed off at the end of the first season of the CW’s The Flash series and neither of the gentlemen are overly busy at the moment.

In any case, fans of the show (or “maties”, as they’re referred to by the hosts) get at least a couple of nice hits in a row. This week — spoiler alert — the boys’ snack pick is Quaker Oats White Cheddar Rice Cakes.

As always, the snack is the least important element of this show. It’s the banter between Black and Cavanagh that so much listening fun. This episode offers up what can best be termed an angry history lesson about the Greeks by Cavanagh, who seems ill equipped to actually enlighten us about the topic.

This follows a rant about “unnecessary Smart cars” and wristwatches, both of which are contributing to the downfall of mankind. There’s also a cool song provided during the break, ostensibly from a fan, about the show itself.

I don’t want to give away much more but suffice it to say that if you think they’re going to laud the humble rice cake (complete with white cheddar flavoring), it doesn’t end up faring so well.

Podcasts I’m also listening to this week: Drive-Time Podcast: If The Brandy Bunch Kids Found A Porno Tape and Chillpak Hollywood Hour #420: Favorite Funny Ladies of Stage and Screen

Stephen Colbert Shaves His Beard In First ‘Late Show’ Promo

What was Stephen Colbert hiding all these years under his “Colbert Report” character? Apparently, a giant grey beard.

In the first promo for CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the host introduces us to his beard, but then decides it’s time to get rid of it. Colbert tries on a handful of characters with different facial hair, like “the un-Hitler” ‘stache, the half Wolverine and lastly, the fresh-faced, hairless Colbert.

Watch Colbert eat a hot dog with a fork and knife and give his beard a musical goodbye. Follow the show’s new Twitter account and Colbr app for more updates. “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” debuts on Sept. 8.

Comedy Legend Carl Reiner On The New Guard Of Late Night: James Corden Is ‘Unbelievable’

Comedy legend Carl Reiner knows a thing or two about late night: he’s the only man on the planet to have appeared on every incarnation of the “Tonight Show,” from Steve Allen to Jimmy Fallon.

And with all the changes going on in late night TV, Reiner is very optimistic. While he calls Fallon an “amazing talent,” Reiner especially likes the newest name in late night, James Corden, host of the “Late Late Show” on CBS.

“He’s unbelievable,” said Reiner. “He sings, he dances… he is very graceful and he sings beautifully.”

Check out part two of Carl Reiner’s memoir I Just Remembered here.

The One Thing You Should Do More of Before It’s Too Late

Just hug.

My Grandma died one year ago today. I don’t believe anyone really truly dies, because I believe we are a spirit encapsulated in a physical body. And because of that, I don’t get sad thinking that I can’t talk to my grandma any more. I am not sad because I think she’s gone forever. I know she is here in some way. But what DOES make me sad is that I can’t hug her anymore.

2015-05-27-1432736287-2232056-10325153_667401969993837_4861156162332956571_n.jpg

We are physical beings. We have the extraordinary ability to feel things, to touch things, to embrace, to see, to hear, to explore, to imagine, and to love. Our bodies and our senses are the tools that allow us to connect with the people and environments around us.

2015-05-27-1432736455-1856374-10407970_667395543327813_8587078006495991750_n.jpg

My dreams of my grandma have always been just of hugging her. Not much else happens. I just find myself laying in bed forcing myself to stay asleep so that the hug will last longer. I just want to lie next to her in her hospice bed without saying anything. I just want to BE there. I wish all of our hugs were longer. I wish I was more present during them. I wish they weren’t quick hellos and good byes. I wish I cuddled next to her on the couch more often.

2015-05-27-1432736237-975846-10302105_667401669993867_7199032670596430573_n.jpg

Aren’t those the best moments? When you’re able to just BE with someone you love? Your mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, best friend, or significant other? Don’t you just love those moments where not much is happening, and not much is being said? It’s like this little glimpse of time where time doesn’t actually seem to exist.

2015-05-27-1432736341-2475425-10406557_667402056660495_8750206142747383091_n.jpg

Happiness doesn’t occur sometime in the future or the past. It doesn’t occur in a memory. It occurs in those little instances where we get to truly feel alive and connected. And it usually includes another human being who we love deeply.

I don’t think of myself as someone who regrets very much in life. To me, everything is a learning experience. But I think this might be the one regret that I do have. However, I know that the best thing that I can do now, is hug more, for longer, and with more people.

So hug more. I’m going to tell my family and my sisters that we need to do it more, and you should too. Don’t wait. Hug randomly and when they least expect it. Hug for longer periods of time. Squeeze harder and hold on. Make it weird. Secretly they like it. I promise.

I bet conflicts will naturally dissipate, tension will subside, and relationships will get better. And with something so so simple.

Hug like you mean it, and like you know that the day will come when you can’t hug them anymore.

2015-05-27-1432736710-6573358-10351452_667408829993151_4092876817152546887_n.jpg

See Your Favorite Supermodels in Their First Late Show With David Letterman Appearances

Entertainment stars bid farewell to David Letterman on his final show last night—and so did fashion stars, like Christy Turlington Burns, who posted this gem on Instagram:


My 2nd appearance on The Late Show at age 24 talking about @calvinklein #ThanksDave

A photo posted by Christy Turlington Burns (@cturlington) on

The legendary funnyman was known for interviewing many models early on in their careers. Among those who have passed through the hallowed halls of the Ed Sullivan Theatre: Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bundchen, Cindy Crawford, and Claudia Schiffer. These clips from the early ’80s and ’90s prove that in addition to being drop dead gorgeous, these supermodels are whip-smart, offering tart retorts to Letterman’s friendly jabs.

Turlington hit the show right after shooting an underwear commercial for Calvin Klein. The then-24-year-old told Letterman that she’d like to go back to school and become a writer someday when she retires from modeling. She went back to school indeed, but Turlington is still in hot demand today in fashion.
Naomi Campbell had a laugh with Letterman in 1995 when he noted that no one helped the supermodel up after a royal tumble on the runway in mile-high platform shoes.
A shy Cindy Crawford hit Letterman right after she famously signed on with Revlon. She told the host she went to college to become a chemical engineer, to which he responded, “Chemical engineers tend to be good looking?”
A 22-year-old Claudia Schiffer was full of zingers. When Letterman asked if Prince Albert of Monaco had proposed marriage, she played coy and teased that she had heard gossip that Letterman had an affair with Princess Diana.

A Goodbye After 20 Years of Directing Late Show With David Letterman

In the early evening of May 20 the words “used to be” will be grafted to the end of my name. Around 5:30, I will ask CBS Technical Director Tim Kennedy to “please fade to black.” Later I will remove the few remaining personal items from my sunny office with the four windows and set out to civilian life. When my feet touch 53rd street I will take my place among “ex” ball players, “former” Congressmen and “used to be” ship captains. I will be referred to as “the former director” of Late Show with David Letterman. Along with the name change, comes the surrender of an all-access pass to New York City.

Consider the sound of six hands clapping. In March of 2012, the cast of the Broadway show Once was booked on Late Show. On the Friday before the appearance, I walked eight blocks south to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater with a Late Show producer and my assistant. We sat in the darkened house as Cristin Milioti, Steve Kazee and the entire cast treated us to a very private performance of “Falling Slowly.” We were invited onstage where these big-time performers warmly introduced themselves and asked if “we would like to see it again?” “Ah, thank you. We’d love to see it again.”

Show business is filled with effusive strivers who realize their dream and can’t stop telling you about it. Sorry, but yes, there was a younger version of me from the north shore of Staten Island desperate for a one-way ferry ride. Manhattan scared me — it was loud, uncomfortable and uncaring, and, for reasons thousands of smarter people have tried to explain, absolutely magnetic. I had no choice. I needed to step off on the New York side and stay there.

One arctic January night, I rode the ferry again but this time I “owned” it. Late Show needed a new opening montage and I was given the resources and creative freedom to light up a boat named “The American Legion”. After crossing the harbor with the ferry’s captain, I grabbed a taxi to the West 30th street heliport where a pilot and camera crew harnessed me to the floor of a helicopter that was missing its doors. We did multiple passes across the bow of the ferry that was following a route and speed I requested. Later we buzzed the icons. I got a close look at the rivets dotting the roof of the Chrysler building and dangled my feet over the spiky crown of the Statue of Liberty. “Big deal” you say, “directors get to do that stuff all the time.” True, but on what scale and how often? I was in show business every day for 20 years or 1040 Sundays if Billy Crystal is counting. I had a blast. If things didn’t go well on Tuesday (they often didn’t), I had the rest of the week to get it right (I often didn’t.)

When my time at Late Show ends I will have directed over 3700 broadcasts, three openings and dozens of single camera shorts. I was treated to a private tour of the Empire State Building. I rode in blimps, police cars and the back seat of a taxi with Buzz Aldrin, who listened politely as I explained how to hold a pen in zero G. I had free run of Yankee Stadium and was part of a group that convinced George Steinbrenner to berate our Stage Manager, Biff Henderson. Mr. Steinbrenner turned out to be a great guy but the people around him seemed very nervous.

I put in hundreds of miles wandering the city streets with writers and camera crews in search of “found comedy”. On one of the many days when the funny refused to reveal itself, a call was put in to City Hall. Forty five minutes later, we were standing on the porch of Gracie Mansion as Rudy Giuliani lectured us about the waters of the Long Island Sound, the Harlem River and Upper New York Bay converging off his front yard to form the currents of Hell Gate. He reminded me of a know-it-all uncle.

If Joaquin Phoenix can romance an operating system, can I love a building? In 1992 I was invited to abandon my comfortable union gig in the art deco halls of NBC and travel a few blocks west to a smelly, broken down theater that saw its glory days in the 1960s. There was no guarantee of long-term employment, but there was the opportunity to help refurbish of one of the world’s most famous stages. Money blew down Broadway as the corporate might of CBS dragged a neglected ocean liner out of mothballs and made it seaworthy again. It was intoxicating. A dazzling broadcast facility was dropped into a swirl of fresh plaster, deep pile carpeting and velour seats. Everything was new; everything was possible.

I roamed the grand old building unchallenged, no one told me to leave (actually there was one time in 2003, long story). Instead stagehands and security people acknowledged me with snarky, absurd salutations that can only be traded among people who’ve shared changes of seasons and cycles of life. I’ve crawled through every accessible inch of The Ed Sullivan Theater. I’ve examined the pumping system that tames the stream running beneath the building and I’ve spied the plump rats who shared the stage with Letterman. I’ve climbed the sketchy iron ladder to the roof and stepped out a restaurant window onto the iconic marquee where Paul McCartney marked his return with a summertime street concert. I’ve pondered my good fortune in front of the René Bouché pencil drawing of Ed that hangs in the inner lobby and I’ve seen the looks of reverence from the many people I’ve taken through the place.

In October of 2002 Warren Zevon showed up for rehearsal; he was dying from mesothelioma. This was his last Late Show appearance and final public performance. He would be dead in less than a year.

Warren was a Late Show regular and covered for Paul Shaffer during the rare times Paul was unavailable. He was one of those guys you never saw coming. He didn’t enter a room — he appeared. On this day a rolling silence announced Warren’s arrival. He took in our frightened, sad faces for a few perfectly timed beats and said, “I think it’s the flu.” Later, Warren and Letterman had a compelling and surprisingly amusing conversation during which Warren shared that he may have “made a tactical error in not going to a physician for 20 years.” With the time he had left, Warren told us he intended to “enjoy every sandwich.” He performed three songs, focusing every witness to a deep look at the abyss.

Each day, Late Show started with a blank page that demanded to be filled. There were plenty of smart ideas, but we often resorted to spectacle. We broke windows, blew up pumpkins and spilled thousands of marbles from seven floors up. We hosted presidential candidates, presidents and former presidents. (There’s that “former” word again.) We re-enacted the Civil War and marched Marines under our marquee and through the aisles of the theater. We watched Philippe Petit take a wire walk 14 stories above an airbag that the city demanded, but he assured me would do nothing to save his life.

And then there are the folks, the humans who kept the assembly line moving. Late Show is populated by smart, stylish people with wicked senses of humor and impossibly fast minds. They gorge on popular culture and carry generous supplies of intuition and insight. Somehow they soldier on through jealousy, rage, dysfunction, cancelled guests, evolving technology, relentless scrutiny, tardy rock stars, fierce competition, 4 am calls, failed comedy ideas and a very demanding boss. They are clever, resilient and, at their core, among the most decent people you could ever hope to meet.

And then there’s Letterman — someone who relentlessly drove himself and the rest of us to the outer envelope of effort and clear thinking. In a random close encounter you’re likely to be charmed — what a great guy, so well-informed and so interested in what I have to say.

I grew up around funny people. Sarcasm and irony was my native language, finesse was an alien concept. Humming just beneath the surface of banter and insults was a bond allowing us to endure life’s cruelties with silliness. Funny people are strong. They counter fear and the indignities of living by surfacing the ironic, the ridiculous and the unexplainable. If tragedy is never taken seriously, then nothing can be tragic, fear is eliminated. To be in the presence of funny people is effortless and exhilarating, to be around people trying to be funny requires you to pay attention — it’s work.

.

When Dave was still at NBC hosting his 12:30 show, there were lavish Christmas parties. He’d buy out the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink and staff and crew would eat, drink and skate together. It was magical. Imagine sliding around on that famous ice minus the crowds, while envious tourists studied us from the plaza above.

As the evening wore on, small support clusters gathered to strategize about the best moment to approach Dave. We all wanted a little face time to register gratitude and maybe say something clever. People agonized over when to make the move and what to say. It was like lining up to visit Santa Claus, except Santa was a moving target, easily irritated and there would be no sitting on his lap.

It didn’t feel right to bother him while he was skating; you weren’t going to interrupt him while he was eating and there was never an easy way to join a conversation he was having with someone else. I was new to this world and couldn’t reconcile the degree of angst hovering over the room. Smart people were struggling to measure the conditions of saying “thank you” to their boss at the company Christmas party. It seemed way too difficult but, like everyone else, I was thrilled to be included and desperately wanted to be invited to the next party and beyond.

As I silently raged against my diffidence and fear of celebrities, I was steadily reminded by more experienced partygoers that “you have to go up there.” Time was running short. When I spied a gap around his table, I jumped. It was like stepping off the wing of a shrieking airplane. Beyond the pressure of coming up with something smart to say was the added burden of being evaluated by a gaggle of eavesdroppers who would overhear my remarks and report to the rest of the party. There would be judgment.

Before I was frightened off by the intense, narrow eyes that screamed “Oh God, here’s another one,” I stuck out my arm and said “Well Dave, it’s time for the annual hand shake.” I was sure that lampooning the absurdity of it all was something he’d appreciate. Turns out I was very wrong. Professional funny people don’t like wise guys. My stab at neighborhood humor was met with soul-searing silence. “Thanks for everything,” I stammered as he reflexively gripped my hand. “No Jerry, thank you,” came the kind-of-loud reply. I slithered away reduced. I spent two agonizing hours trying to get it right and he dropped me with four words and a scowl. I wanted to stick my head in a bucket.

Spread over 25 years my Letterman encounters, occasionally direct sometimes by proxy, were dominated by similar miscues, garbled intentions and remorse. I never seemed to say the right thing, but the stakes got higher — I was the director, perfectly positioned to screw things up and I often did. Despite an earnest desire to please, I never left work thinking I got it right.

Among Dave’s many gifts is the uncanny ability to turn the simplest task into something unwieldy. Watch him dial a phone or attempt a tweet. He’s also someone who can stare down the barrel of a single camera and distill the most complex human frailties with sideways insights that are hysterical and ultimately reassuring. The maddening part is the impossibility of predicting which version you’re going to get.

Long before Paris Hilton, the obnoxious Housewives or the family Kardashian was Dave, antagonizing Bryant Gumbel with a bull horn or taunting General Electric’s upper management with a gift basket. Dave pioneered reality television. If he was happy, you knew it and there was no escaping the times he was pissed. Search the night he announced the birth of his son or the time someone accused him of being a “non-voting Republican.”

Brilliant writers showered him with scripts, concepts and set ups. Most pitches were rejected and the rare ones to make it through were drastically altered. Even the best ideas were a threat to his effort to spill his thoughts out in real time. The memorable nights were when he was on a rant or a roll and the vitriol or joy flowed fresh from his uniquely wired brain. While he filleted himself in pursuit of perfection, David Letterman harbored a deep disdain for anything suggesting rehearsal. The observations, the comedy, the biting conclusions had to be conjured in the moment. This was not a teleprompter guy, if it was being read, it wasn’t a conversation, and if it wasn’t a conversation you’re not a broadcaster.

Dave is painfully self-aware. He lives in a state of perpetual examination and is incredulous that others don’t make the same effort. If they did, the world wouldn’t be populated by so many fools. He is easily the fastest knife in any fight and lights, microphones, cameras and direction only interfered. He was impossible to please, and if you stumbled into doing something right, he was convinced it would lessen your next effort. Was it simply some noble, Midwestern work ethic? I may never know.

Dave possessed a fierce drive to honor his opportunity. He threw everything he had at the show and left nothing on the table. Defying an earlier generation of generic NBC executives, David Letterman did become the uncontested heir to Johnny Carson. He walks off with his dream fully realized. He also gave me and many others a shot at their own professional dreams. The entertainment business is deep with people who passed through Dave’s world and have gone on to considerable success.

Now it’s time to hand the keys to a new owner. One day you’re a big shot with fat budgets and vast resources and the next day you’re not. Like the high school we leave behind or the vacated summer rental, someone kind of like you will occupy the space that was once yours and create memories of their own.

When Warren Zevon was leaving the theater that early autumn evening the impossible silence returned. The stage was dim and the theater’s ghost light was in place. As Warren gingerly lowered himself into the backseat of a town car, Stagehand Kenny Sheehan attempted a goodbye — “We’ll see you around, Warren.” A weary grin came to Warren’s face as he reached for the door. “Yea, I’ll see you somewhere.”

There are chapters on “Gowns, Dresses, Shifts, Skirts, and Shirts,” “Pants, Pantjumpers, Pantskirts, and Tunics,” “Coats,” “Swimsuits, Play Suits, and Beach Cover-ups,” “Underwear and Nightwear,” and “Accessories.” The book focuses on women’s fashions, but includes examples of collectible men’s and children’s fashions of the period.

Bill Cosby’s ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ Appearance Canceled

According to Newsday, Bill Cosby’s Nov. 19 appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” has been canceled. No reason was given for the schedule change, but Regis Philbin will replace Cosby on the broadcast.

A representative for CBS declined to comment when contacted by The Huffington Post (the network does not publicly discuss its booking process). Cosby’s representatives did not return repeated requests for comment; this post will be updated if and when a response is received.

This marks Cosby’s second canceled booking in the last two weeks, as he dropped out of “The Queen Latifah Show” on Oct. 30. That move came a week after stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress called Cosby “a rapist” on stage in a bit that soon went viral. A spokesperson for “The Queen Latifah Show” told The Hollywood Reporter, “Mr. Cosby’s scheduled appearance on The Queen Latifah Show was postponed at his request and was in no way related to any of our recent or upcoming scheduled guests.”

This week, the Internet turned its attention back to Cosby after his team posted a meme generator on his website. The widget was taken down after users uploaded messages that highlighted allegations of rape and sexual abuse brought against the comedian over the last decade.

In addition, Barbara Bowman, one of the women who has alleged Cosby sexually assaulted her, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post on Thursday recounting encounters with the now 77-year-old comic. She told HuffPost Live in a separate interview that her experiences with Cosby were “sexual encounters that were not consensual on any level.”

Cosby was never criminally charged in Bowman’s case or any other. In 2006, he settled a civil suit with one of the women.

Edie Windsor Looks Back On Life With Late Wife Thea Spyer

Defense of Marriage Act plaintiff Edith Windsor and her late wife Thea Spyer’s love story spanned more than 40 years. The pair was together up until Spyer’s death in 2009.

On Thursday, Windsor told HuffPost Live’s Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani that she stills feels her late wife’s absence, even years after her death — and not just on big days like when the Supreme Court ruled DOMA unconstitutional last June, but on regular days too.

“I constantly go looking to tell her something, if something exciting has happened,” Windsor said. “I mean I literally walk into a room before I realize what I’m doing.”

She also reminisced about her early days falling in love with Spyer: “I dug her. I thought she was great. I thought she was beautiful. I thought she was all kinds of things.”

For more on Spyer and Windsor’s lifelong love story, watch the segment above. You can also watch the full segment here.

Jimmy Savile Sexual Abuse Scandal: 500 People Reported Incidents By Late Entertainer, Children’s Charity Claims

LONDON (AP) — A British children’s charity says at least 500 people have reported abuse by the late entertainer Jimmy Savile, with the youngest alleged victim just 2 years old.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children said Monday that the most common age group for victims was 13 to 15. Peter Watt, the charity’s director of child protection, said Savile was a “prolific sex offender … (who) lost no opportunity to identify vulnerable victims and abuse them.”

The cigar-chomping, platinum-haired Savile was a British television fixture for several decades, but after his death at 84 in 2011, witnesses and victims came forward to accuse him of sexual abuse. Police have since described the television and radio presenter as a serial sexual predator who used his fame to target young and mostly female victims, from star-struck teens at television recordings to patients in hospital beds.

A police investigation concluded last year that Savile’s abuse spanned half a century and included at least 214 offenses, most against victims under 18.

The NSPCC researched Savile’s crimes as part of a BBC documentary to be aired Monday.

It found more alleged victims than previously thought at Broadmoor psychiatric hospital. Police say they have received 16 allegations of abuse inside the institution.

Savile visited frequently as part of his charity work and was given his own set of keys to the hospital. In 1988, he was hired as an adviser to help resolve staff-management tensions at Broadmoor.

Couple Of 72 Years Proves It’s Never Too Late To Have The Wedding Of Your Dreams

By Kristen Klein for Bridal Guide

When Mira and Bob Graves tied the knot back in 1942, they did what many young couples of their generation did — they had a quick, no-frills ceremony before Bob was shipped off to war. They’d only been dating for a few months, but they decided to elope right after witnessing their friends exchange vows in Reno.

Seventy-two years later, the happy couple lives at Antioch’s Quail Lodge Retirement Home, where they were named king and queen of the home’s Valentine’s Day celebration. The only problem: When asked to provide a picture of their wedding, they couldn’t — because none were ever taken.

Though the couple has never regretted their low-key wedding ceremony, they jumped at the chance for a wedding do-over when the home’s director, Jennifer Noble, made the suggestion. Noble sprang into action, working with the local community to secure a gown, tux, cake, flowers, music and, most importantly, a photographer.

Watch the sweet video above.

Jimmy Fallon Leaves ‘Late Night’ For ‘The Tonight Show,’ Says He’ll ‘Miss Being On TV At 12:37’

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s not so much “goodbye” as “on break.”

With Jimmy Fallon’s departure from “Late Night” on Friday after five years in the host chair, he will be off the NBC airwaves a scant 10 days before coming back as host of “The Tonight Show,” which was vacated Thursday by Jay Leno after 22 years. “I’m really going to miss being on TV at 12:37,” Fallon joked in his farewell monologue, noting that his “fierce rivals” have been CBS host Craig Ferguson “and a Veggie-Chopper infomercial.”

But if he was overjoyed at his promotion to a slot one hour earlier — and he radiated joy all through the finale (taped Friday afternoon) — at the same time he could hardly keep his tear ducts in check.

“I’m not gonna cry,” he vowed early on, “but I’m gonna get really close.”

“You got to pull it together,” teased his guest, fellow “Saturday Night Live” alum Andy Samberg. “You got to man up.”

“‘Irish Wuss’ was my nickname in high school,” replied Fallon.

The 39-year-old Fallon has promised that nothing much will change with his talk-comedy-music formula, except the new time slot and “Tonight Show” title.

But if it’s not so big a change for Fallon (or his house band, the Roots, or his announcer, Steve Higgins, who all are coming along), it’s a big change for “Tonight,” which is returning to New York’s Rockefeller Plaza after more than 40 years in Los Angeles, and returning to NBC’s Studio 6B, once the home of “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.”

To complete this game of musical chairs, Seth Meyers (another “SNL” grad) becomes “Late Night” host starting Feb. 24.

“We’re gonna be a great team back-to-back,” Fallon said.

During his monologue, Fallon got nostalgic, with a dash of comedy. Since premiering in March 2009, he spun out 10,000 jokes, he announced, all of which he proceeded to sum up as: “Joe Biden needed Obamacare after Anthony Weiner texted Justin Bieber a picture of Chris Christie dating a Kardashian on the Jersey shore with Rob Ford.”

More sincerely, Fallon voiced thanks to David Letterman for starting “Late Night,” and to Conan O’Brien, its second host, as well as to his viewers, whose support “means the world to me. It makes me so happy.”

The hour ended with a big musical number: Fallon on drums and singing the Band classic “The Weight,” accompanied by a large ensemble of Muppets.

Then he made his exit from his longtime “Late Night” home, Studio 6A, and strode a few steps down a hallway to his soon-to-be new home. He opened the door to Studio 6B to find a cheering, welcoming throng. Fade out.

It’s awaiting him for real in just 10 days.

This Tribute To Late Teen YouTube Star Zach Sobiech Is Guaranteed To Make You Cry

Some people continue to inspire, even after they’ve left us.

That can be said for Zach Sobiech, the 18-year-old singer and songwriter whose YouTube hit, “Clouds,” went viral last December and, at one point, reached No. 1 on iTunes.

Sobiech lost his battle to a rare form of cancer this past May, but his legacy has continued to touch the hearts of people across the globe.

On Thursday night, a choir of about 5,000 singers came together to sing a triumphant version of “Clouds” at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. The event, held one year after “Clouds” hit YouTube, was organized by local radio station, KS95.

In the crowd were Sobiech’s parents, Laura and Rob Sobiech, and his girlfriend, Amy Adamle.

Everybody came together, and it was for Zach, and it was for everyone in the room,” Rob Sobiech told the Pioneer Press. “And it was for other kids who have cancer.”

“I know [Zach is] smiling right now,” Adamle added, “just like all of us are.”

Watch the incredible performance of “Clouds” in the video above.
