‘Sorry, Sorry, Sorry!’ Phil Hartman’s Wife Went Wild With Rage Minutes Before Murder

Phil-Hartman-Wife-Shot-Dead-Children-Slept

Beloved comedian Phil Hartman died instantly on May 28 after his mentally-ill third wife, Brynn Hartman, shot him following a heated argument.

After getting dinner and drinks with friend Ron Douglas that afternoon, Brynn returned to her and Phil’s home in a daze of booze, drugs and fury. She reportedly started a vicious fight, and when he declined to take part in it, she became enraged.

“They were in the bedroom at one point. They started arguing again, she yelled out very loudly ‘Sorry, sorry, sorry sorry.’ Nobody knows what that was about,” says Hartman Biographer, Mike Thomas, in a clip for REELZ’s new docuseries, Phil Hartman: Behind Closed Doors.

“Phil – who hated conflict — retreated from whatever argument she wanted to start, and just went to sleep,” he continues in the promo video. “Brynn may have done more drugs, she may have had more to drink — nobody really knows — but at some point she went to their bathroom and retrieved a gun from the lock box they kept in there. She went back to the bed and stood facing Phil and fired the gun three times.”

As soon as Phil died, a panicked Brynn rushed back to pal Ron Douglas’ house and confessed to the crime, leaving her sleeping children at home, feet from the scene of the murder.

Comedy Turned Tragedy: Ex-Wife Recalls Romantic Trips With Phil Hartman Before Death

Known as one of the most beloved comedians of the ‘90s, Phil Hartman led a life filled with joy, laughter and love. While he often lost himself in his dark characters and mysterious life, he always maintained a sense of generosity toward everyone he knew. On May 28, 1998, his troubled third wife, Brynn Hartman, shot him dead after a wild night of drugs and booze.

Now, in REELZ’s new docuseries, Phil Hartman: Behind Closed Doors, host Natalie Morales sits down with friends, loved ones and colleagues of the late funnyman to talk about his wonderful life — which was unfortunately cut short at the hands of his mentally ill wife.

“It was quiet and beautiful, and he could be free in nature,” says Phil Hartman’s second wife, Lisa Jarvis, recalling the romantic vacations the two used to take to Catalina.

“There’s a series of photographs that we staged, this wacky boat disaster. And we’d rented this little tiny boat — it probably went three miles an hour,” she continues in the show teaser.

“He came up with this idea that ‘Ok Lisa, this boat has gone out of control, this boat is out of control,’ so he posed himself so that he was steering [the wheel].”

The video then shows a series of old pictures of Phil and Lisa making wild poses aboard a small boat.

“That’s the kind of thing we used to do. We used to make up these little goofy skits and be silly,” remembers Lisa with a laugh.

‘Catfish’ On Hiatus After Host Nev Schulman Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

Catfish Suspended Nev Schulman Sexual Misconduct

Catfish has been temporarily suspended days after host and executive producer, Nev Schulman, was accused of sexual misconduct, RadarOnline.com has learned.

In the MTV show — which began airing in 2012 — Schulman, 33, investigates individuals on dating sites and apps in an attempt to disclose their true identities.

“We take these allegations very seriously,” an MTV spokesperson said in a statement following the sexual misconduct accusations. “We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation.”

As RadarOnline.com readers know, this is not the first time Schulman has been bashed for his bad behavior. When he was a student at Sarah Lawrence College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., the now-producer got arrested and eventually expelled after he punched a young gay woman repeatedly in the head.

Bizarrely, he admitted to the incident and even defended his actions, saying he believed the “short, stocky, crew-cut-styled” individual he beat up was a man.

In his 2014 memoir, In Real Life: Love, Lives & Identity in the Digital Age, Schulman also admitted he often stole clothes and drugs, crashed expensive cars and once “took a dump in the cereal dispenser,” inside his school cafeteria as a teen.

“I wanted attention. A sense of value. I wanted to be needed,” he explained at the time, adding that he now tries to be “kind and respectful and humble and pleasant” with everyone he meets.

Nev Schulman has yet to speak of his recent sex scandal.

Whitney Houston Was Sexually Abused By Cousin Dee Dee Warwick, New Documentary Claims

Cousin Sexually Abused Whitney Houston Child

A new documentary about Whitney Houston’s life has made a shocking accusation about her dark family past, suggesting that the icon’s cousin, Dee Dee Warwick, sexually abused her as a child.

The film’s director, Kevin Macdonald, told Indiewire that Whitney’s brother, Gary Garland, claimed he’d been sexually abused as a child by Dee Dee and believed Whitney had too.

According to Macdonald, Gary’s wife, Pat Houston, also claimed Whitney had told her about the sexual abuse but “not given any details.”

The filmmaker told the publication that while he watched old Whitney Houston tapes as research for Whitney, he realized she was not comfortable in her own skin despite being a beautiful woman. He noticed that much of her reserved personality likely stemmed from her years of sexual abuse.

Macdonald claimed Whitney’s aunt, Mary Jones, eventually confirmed his fears that the iconic singer had been molested as a child.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Dee Dee — whose sister was beloved singer Dionne Warwick — died just four years before Whitney Houston passed away inside her bathtub.

Whitney’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, told reporters he did not know any details of the alleged sexual abuse.

Whitney premiered on July 6, 2018.

“He has cash, jewelry, and documents for another life — all stashed away in safety-deposit boxes around the U.S. and Europe,” adds Murder Me FamousSteve Helling.

Bulger’s crimes went on for 16 years, making him the second most wanted criminal (just after Osama Bin Laden) in the FBI’s chilling list.

Despite his multiple ties to law enforcement and his complex webs of corruption, Bulger continued to be a free man until investigators finally captured him in 2011. He was 81 year old at the time.

“Where’s Whitey Bulger? I thought he had to be dead. He was somehow dead and he was buried under the bridges along with the other victims,” recalls McClean.

Bulger and his longtime girlfriend, Catherine Greig, took on aliases and travelled the country before settling down in Santa Monica. Their new residence was only a few blocks from the beach — and four miles from the FBI office in Los Angeles!

Corruption & Dark Secrets: Inside Boston Gangster Whitey Bulger’s Shady Crime Scheme

Whitey Bulger Gangster Network Corruption

Whitey Bulger was one of the most feared gangsters in Boston from 1975 to 1990. Apart from being responsible for at least 11 murders, the killer also served as an FBI informant who tipped off police to take out other organized crime groups. By doing this, he strengthened his own crime network.

The 2015 film Black Mass, starring Johnny Depp, was based off of the hectic life and dark secrets of the crime boss himself.

Nearly three decades after the brutal murders, REELZ is releasing its shocking docuseries Murder Made Me Famous: Whitey Bulger, in hopes of comprehending Whitey Bulger’s criminal past.

“Now, there are other law-enforcement agencies on his tail, and they’re conducting their own investigations,” recalls Murder Me Famous’ Steve Helling in the show teaser.

Bulger was known for killing gangsters and innocent bystanders. The wide variety of his murders got him on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, where he stayed for 12 years.

“We were the state police organized crime unit. If we didn’t go out and investigate organized crime, then we were part of the problem, and the last thing I wanted to be is part of that problem,” says retired Massachusetts State Police Officer, Thomas Foley.

“He gathered information, but every time he was this close to catching Whitey or the Winter Hill gang, his investigations would be compromised,” explains Margaret McClean, Author of Whitey on Trial.

“We realized that it was more than just Bulger that we were dealing with, that there was a lot of corruption going on in the Boston area as a result of Bulger’s relationship with law enforcement,” adds Foley.

kathie lee Gifford howard stern feud ended

This Thursday on the Today show, Kathie Lee Gifford finally revealed how she was able to end her 30-year feud with radio mogul Howard Stern.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Stern harshly criticized Gifford, 64, on his hit show, various times over the last three decades. At one point, he referred to her as the “world’s dumbest person” and even called her “disgusting” and “hideous.”

“Howard Stern had a feud with me going on 30 years. I never met him. I never listened to his show. He hated my guts for 30 years. Hated my husband, hated my children. Hated everything I stood for,” Gifford explained to Jenna Bush Hager on-air this May 10.

“And one day, right here, I was up in the makeup room and all of a sudden he’s here to announce America’s Got Talent. I just feel the Lord saying very clearly to me, ‘Go down and say hello to Howard,’” Gifford recalled. “I’m standing right here, he’s 6’ 6” and I’m 5’ 5” with flat shoes and I go, ‘Howard, Howard, I’m Kathie Lee. I thought it was time I say hello. I want to wish you the very best with your show.’ And I left. He was really flabbergasted.”

According to Gifford, Stern,64, was so rattled by the exchange that he reached out to her shortly after to apologize for the way he’s treated her over the years.

“There’s a message from him, a voicemail. ‘I was blown away and will you call me?’” she remembered. “He calls again during dinner, we had a half-hour conversation. ‘Will you forgive me, Kathie, please? I’m doing some hard work on my life. I know I hurt you. I’m so sorry and I need to ask you to forgive me.’”

Gifford recalled her response: “’First of all, Howard, I’m so happy for you. You’re doing the work you need to do. That’s important for you to do. And you need to know I forgave you 30 years ago, and I’ve been praying for you every single day since, and I still do.’”

Gifford first spoke of Stern’s apology on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live in 2014.
