Cheryl Ladd To Detail Depression Struggles In Memoir

Actress Cheryl Ladd is preparing to tell all about her battle with mental illness in a new memoir after revealing she secretly sought treatment for depression at the height of her Charlie’S Angels fame.
The veteran TV star, 67, has finally agreed to write her autobiography, and she will use the book to detail the personal struggles she faced behind closed doors, when her career was at an all-time high.
“When I was on Charlie’s Angels early in my career, I had all of this success, but I was going through something really dark, and nobody really knows about it,” she shared on daytime show The Talk.
“As a matter of fact, I’m finally doing my memoirs, and excited about telling all the parts of the story, because if in your life, you don’t have the light and the dark, you don’t have a picture, and you have to remember that.”
Cheryl explains she was in desperate need of help at the time, and although she was initially hesitant to seek treatment from medical professionals, she is glad she was brave enough to do so, because it really turned her life around.
“It was (hard to seek help)…,” she recalled. “It was so private and because I had always been this really positive person, when it all started to come toward me, I really struggled, so I was really happy that I got help.”
The actress admits coming clean about her own health issues is long overdue, and she wants her story to help destigmatise the topic of mental illness for other generations.
“It’s time that I write that in the book,” Cheryl said. “I think it will help a lot of people because I think that it needs to be talked to (sic), literally on a daily basis, because a lot of people are struggling and I think we all have to help them get help.”
Ladd is already an established author – she wrote a children’s book, The Adventures of Little Nettie Windship, in 1996, and released Token Chick: A Woman’s Guide to Golfing With the Boys, about her love of the sport, in 2005.

David Spade: ‘I Check In On Ex Heather Locklear From Time To Time’

Funnyman David Spade checks in on his ex-girlfriend Heather Locklear whenever he feels she’s in trouble.
The Joe Dirt star dated the actress in 2006 and admits they have remained close, touching base during life lows.
Appearing on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show, Radio Andy, on Wednesday, David was asked if he still speaks to Locklear, who is back in the headlines following a series of recent legal woes.
“I mean, I love her,” Spade told Cohen. “She was nice to go out with me. I will always be indebted to her because she was so nice, so fun, and no apologies, went out with me, didn’t care, even though I’m sure she took some grief.
“I grew up loving her. She was on SNL (Saturday Night Live) once hosting when I was a writer. She goes, ‘I remember you’, and I go, ‘There’s not a chance… she remembered me…’ I was some doofy writer, not getting any sketches… I ran into her later, we were friendly, and then we started hanging out. She’s always chirpy and fun and hilarious.”
Spade reveals Locklear called him when his sister-in-law, Kate Spade, committed suicide last month.
“Heather, I check on her,” Spade added. “What can you do other than just say hello, and check in, and say, ‘If you ever want to say hi and and talk or anything…’, and that’s what people did to me with Kate. And there’s something nice about (that)… It’s just sort of a friendly gesture.”
And talking about his ex’s ongoing issues, Spade said, “At least when people just say ‘hey’ that’s some niceness coming in… instead of ‘what’s going on?’ which is obviously very tough.
“She’s (Locklear) having a tough situation… I have had my down moments, like everybody, so I don’t look at anybody like, ‘Ugh, can you believe?’ I just go, ‘S**t, everyone is, like, one inch away from having some trouble sometime’.”
Locklear was admitted to the hospital last month following a reported overdose a day after she was arrested for allegedly kicking an officer when police responded to a domestic disturbance call at her home.

G-Eazy: ‘Demi Lovato Is Just A Friend’

Rapper G-Eazy has insisted he is just friends with Demi Lovato after they were recently spotted holding hands.
The Me, Myself & I hitmaker and his girlfriend Halsey announced their split at the start of July, and almost two weeks later he was photographed holding hands with the Cool for the Summer star as they left the Warwick club in Hollywood over the weekend.
G-Eazy, real name Gerald Gillum, was asked about the dating rumors by Entertainment Tonight as he hit the red carpet at the 2018 ESPY Awards at Los Angeles on Wednesday night, and insisted she is “just a friend.”
Speaking about the interest in his private life, he added, “It’s just one of those things that comes with the territory. You trade in your anonymity in exchange for some of your success in the public eye. You have to remember the blessings and remember how grateful you are to be here in the first place and understand some of that is just what comes with the territory.”
Following the split, Halsey was linked to her rumored ex Machine Gun Kelly, after a picture surfaced online of the pair enjoying a day at the beach, but she swiftly shut the speculation down.
“I’m not at the beach. I’m on tour. Alone… Slow news week I guess,” she tweeted. “I’m not with anybody. That photo is 2 years old. Everyone mind they damn business (sic)”.
On Saturday, the Bad at Love singer reportedly told the crowd that she had been badly hurt by someone during a concert in New Jersey, and referenced her new single status as she dished out relationship advice.
“I learned recently it’s okay to be alone. Being alone is enough. The second lesson I learned is don’t sleep with your ex,” she said, before launching into her track Sorry.

Andy Dick Pleads Not Guilty Of Sexual Battery Charge

Comedian Andy Dick has pleaded not guilty after he was accused of sexual battery earlier this month.
The funnyman officially entered the plea in a Los Angeles court on Wednesday after a woman alleged he grabbed her bottom twice and made lewd comments as he walked past her on a Los Angeles street inApril.
The charges come months after it was revealed Dick, who has struggled with addiction issues, was fired from two films, Raising Buchanan and Vampire Dad, over allegations of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior late last year.
The 52 year old also made headlines recently after a 2007 clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live! resurfaced, showing him rubbing Ivanka Trump’s legs as she slapped his hands away. In the footage, Kimmel defends Donald Trump’s daughter by urging Dick to stop.
Dick has also been at the center of troubles at home – his longtime partner Lena Sved was granted a permanent restraining order against him in March over allegations he became violent after drinking. He was ordered to vacate the family home and stay away from Sved, their children Jacob and Meg, and her daughter Rachel Seff.

Comedienne Alice Wetterlund: ‘T.J. Miller Is A Bully And A Brat’

Deadpool 2 star T.j. Miller is facing another misconduct drama from a comedienne who appeared on his TV show Silicon Valley.
Alice Wetterlund, who starred on the show between 2015 and 2016, has attacked Miller via Twitter, calling him “a bully and a petulant brat”.
She also poked fun at his recentfake bomb threat drama on board a train, joking: “It is definitely time to rehabilitate TJ Miller’s career! We can’t afford to lose talent at a time like this, we need more – not less – comedic hijinks such as… calling in a fake bomb threat.”
The actor and comedian was arrested for allegedly providing false information about a bomb threat to federal authorities after claiming a woman wearing a scarf had a “bomb in her bag” on an Amtrak train traveling from Washington, D.C. to New York.
Miller reportedly gave authorities the wrong train number, prompting them to stop and search a train in Connecticut, resulting in massive delays and wasted law enforcement efforts. Authorities subsequently determined the 36-year-old was allegedly intoxicated and he made the report after getting into a fight with the woman.
Opening up about her experiences with Miller, Wetterlund tweets: “T.J. Miller was a bully and petulant brat and pretty much everyone who had any power on that (almost all male) set, including the male cast members, enabled him and were complicit in his unprofessionalism. They can f** off forever.
“I’m pretty open about this, and I don’t know if other women on the show had a different experience than me, but it was kind of a nightmare.”

Kim Kardashian Rakes In $5 Million In Five Minutes As Fragrances Become Must-haves

Kim Kardashian enjoyed the sweet smell of success on Tuesday when her new fragrances raked in $5 million in just five minutes.
The reality TV star and entrepreneur unveiled three perfumes – Kimoji Cherry, Kimoji Peach and Kimoji Vibes – and quickly cashed in on seven figures without spending any money on advertising, promoting the products exclusively through social media.
Kim’s Kimoji perfumes retail for $45 per bottle and are expected to sell out quickly, although sources tell TMZ she ensured there was more than enough to go around for the second line after her first perfume launch last year sold out almost instantly, netting $10 million of sales in a day.
Turning over an incredible profit for beauty products in a short amount of time is not an uncommon occurrence for the 37-year-old wife of rapper and fashion designer Kanye West – she has also cornered the make-up market, earning $14 million in five minutes after launching her KKW Cosmetics last summer.
However, the new launch isn’t all good news for Kim – she has been slapped with a lawsuit over her new perfume’s logo.
According to court papers obtained by The Blast, Vibes Media has hit Kim with a civil case, claiming her KKW company swiped a logo they created and trademarked in 2012 to promote her latest fragrance line.
Representatives at Vibes Media claim KKW bosses have been abusing the logo through marketing and promotion, as well as packaging the scents in a bottle that is “a close facsimile of the Registered Vibes Logo”.
Bosses at the company are seeking unspecified damages and have requested a judge impose an injunction to prevent Kim from selling any more perfume. They also want unsold fragrance bottles to be destroyed.
