Peri Gilpin From ‘Frasier’ Is Now 60 And Keeping Saturday Morning Cartoons Alive

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Serve up some tossed salads and scrambled eggs, because Frasier is here, joined as always by a cast of comedic masters to work off of. As the titular Frasier Crane works to host his show, he famously contends with manager Roz Doyle, even as the two realize they share more in common than they initially thought. Roz was brought to life from 1993 to 2004 by Peri Gilpin, who is still enabling beloved classics to this day. Catch up with her career since the Cheers spinoff here.

Born on May 27, 1961, Gilpin is the daughter of a broadcaster and though her parents split, her family encouraged her interest in acting. She studied at the Dallas Theater Center, University of Texas at Austin, and the British-American Academy in London. Her career in the spotlight began with television in the 1988 episode of 21 Jump Street titled “The Currency We Trade In.” Supporting roles followed similarly, landing Gilpin on shows like Designing Women, Matlock, Wings, and most notably, Cheers. In 1993, she played a character named Holly Matheson on the episode “Woody Gets an Election,” but everybody would know her name and be glad she came for the spinoff series, Frasier.

Stirring up the fun kind of trouble

Across the next decade, Gilpin would appear in 260 episodes as Roz Doyle, both butting heads with and complementing Frasier as an even match for his sharp remarks. Indeed, just as Benson could steal any scene on Soap, Gilpin’s Roz is regarded as a highlight of Frasier and the show kept her around enough to explore the character in a meaningful way. Originally, Lisa Kudrow was destined for the role thanks to her funny delivery, but it was Gilpin’s power that convinced producers. When she parted ways with the show, she brought a bit of it with her by adopting Moosie the dog, the son of Moose, who played Eddie.

Acting on Frasier would be the longest-running television job Gilpin had, with not many shows coming close; next would come 13 episodes on The Lionhearts, then 40 episodes of Make It or Break It as Kim Keeler, a role that earned her a Gracie Award for Outstanding Female Actor in a Supporting Role in a Drama Series.

Is Peri Gilpin still acting?

Gilpin has won over a whole new generation of fans from a different type of acting, one that relies less on number of appearances and more on sound. She provides the voice of TV and game characters, from Jane Proudfoot of Final Fantasy: Spirits Within to Desiree the genie from Nickelodeon’s Danny Phantom. More voice acting credits include Hercules: The Animated Series, Superman, and even the Hellboy animated series. So, essentially, Gilpin went from helping to continue the magic of Frasier Crane to perpetuating the enduring wonder and fun of Saturday morning cartoons, another staple of simpler times. Though, she has reunited with the denizens of Cheers Beacon Hill in various projects, most recently Ted Danson on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Her most recent credit was Family Reunion in 2020.

While keeping the fun alive for young cartoon fans, she is also a mother herself to a set of twins born to a surrogate mother; she raises them with husband Christian Vincent, a painter she married in 1999. When not parenting or working, she is an advocate for researching and combating cancer, after her mother’s own death from leiomyosarcoma. She donates to research through the Les Girls cabaret fundraiser and promotes education so women understand the risks presented to them and how to best take care of themselves.

Inside The Decades-Long Relationship Between Celine Dion And Manager René Angélil

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Every beginning comes implicitly with an impending goodbye. Best-selling musical artist Celine Dion and producer, manager, and singer René Angélil had to say goodbye after 21 years of marriage and association that lasted even longer, tracing back to when Dion was 12. Angélil passed away in 2016 at the age of 73 and Dion would admit to thinking about him constantly. How did this intense relationship begin, and when?

With a 26-year age gap between them, Angélil worked with 12-year-old Dion when he was 38 and serving as her manager. He had been sent a tape of the rising star’s work and he, by then well-known as a manager, invited her for an audition. “While I was singing he started to cry,” Dion revealed. “I knew then I had done a good job.” Angélil reportedly believed so much in her success, he mortgaged his house to finance her 1981 album, and would take Dion and her mother on tours through Canada, Europe, and Japan as he managed her career.

The relationship between Celine Dion and René Angélil

Dion would assert that she and Angélil did not pursue a relationship until she was around 19 or 20. She even pressed, “Don’t start a story,” to Larry King in 1999, “I was in love a long time before then.” The relationship reached a major milestone the evening of April 30, 1988, the date Dion won the Eurovision Song Contest for Switzerland with the song “Ne partez pas sans moi.” The two exchanged a kiss.

Dion also penned a concrete dedication to their relationship in the sleeve notes of her The Colour of My Love album. “When you’re in love, you want to scream it to the world,” she explained as to why she needed to spread word of their relationship. By 1991, they were engaged. The resulting wedding, which occurred on December 17, 1994, was as splendid as Dion’s career, though her mother strongly protested. Dion understood to a degree, admitting she “she tried to make me understand that this man tried marriage twice before, he has three children, he’s not responsible.” But many others were rooting for them and Dion tied the knot while wearing a crystal-and-silk Mirella dress with a 20-foot train.

The ties that bind

“I’m not surprised that we married each other,” said Dion, “because we have the same dreams. We have the same goals. We respect each other.” The two continued on a mutual path that now blended love and work while also building a family, with Dion continuing to soar to new heights and Angélil overseeing her success. There were bumps in the road of their relationship, Dion admitted, explaining, “We had tension between us. It’s never easy being husband and wife, but add to that we are in business together, dealing with all the added pressures of shows, concerts, tours, traveling. It was hard – a lot of hard work.”

But there were also health complications on the horizon. In 1998, Angélil was diagnosed with throat cancer. Ultimately, he would be rid of it for this first bout by 2000, but it returned in 2013. Angélil underwent surgery but the disease was declared terminal in 2014 and on January 14, 2016, he passed away. When asked if Dion might ever date again, Dion said, “I don’t know. I have no idea.” Dion shares tribute posts to the late manager, where she writes, “There’s not one day that we don’t think about you. We’re reaching out to you now more than ever, to guide us, protect us, and continue to watch over us. And we pray that you’ll shine your love on the entire world, to all those at this very moment, who are facing incredibly difficult times. You are in our hearts and in our lives forever.”

Rob Lowe Shares Rock Bottom Moment That Forced Him To Get Sober

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Rob Lowe is gearing up to celebrate 32 years of sobriety this May. He was really open about the moment that caused him to become sober in the first place. His career skyrocketed in the ’80s after appearing in films The Outsiders and St. Elmo’s Fire. He was in his 20s and looked up to stars like Warren Beatty who loved to party.

He admitted, “I remember watching ‘Shampoo’ and when I saw Warren left alone and broken at the end, I absolutely felt like, ‘Oh, this is how my life will play out if I don’t figure it out.’ It would be many years until I did, but that was always my fear, that I would end up alone. Intimacy and I were not very well acquainted until very late in my life.”

The rock-bottom moment happened for him when his mother called and told him that his grandfather had a heart attack. She left a message but Rob was too drunk to pick up the phone. Rob admitted, “I remember going into the bathroom, looking at myself in the mirror and my thought process was, ‘You need to drink directly from this bottle of Cuervo Gold so you can go to sleep, so you can wake up, so you can deal with this.’ Out of all the things that had gone on in my life, that was the thing where finally I went, ‘This is no way to live.’ I went to rehab 48 hours later.”

The year was 1990 and that moment forced Rob to get help. Luckily, he was able to get sober and has been sober for over three decades now. Of course, his career only grew from there and he continues to act and has two podcasts.

He is also blessed in his personal life after getting sober. Rob has been married to his wife Sheryl for many years now and they have two grown sons. Matthew is a lawyer while John is a TV writer. Rob added, “I’ve never been happier, personally or professionally [and] there’s not a day that goes by where I’m not thankful about it all. I have gratitude and profound humility for the gifts that I’ve been given, and worked for, in this world.”

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Martha Stewart revealed something interesting about herself on The Ellen DeGeneres Show during its final season. The 80-year-old played two truths and a lie with Ellen. One of her truths was that she has been struck by lightning three times in her life! According to the CDC, your odds of being struck by lightning every year is about 1 in 500,000.

While she said it felt “horrible” when she was hit by lightning, she also said, “Yeah, I mean, it’s like crazy. I think it actually is good for you. If it doesn’t kill you, I think it’s good for you.” She went on to explain what happened each time.

Martha shared, “Once it came out of a water faucet. I was leaning against an iron sink and I saw the lightning go down the pipe out in my garden and then it came back up through the water and hit me right in my stomach. Threw me on the floor and my husband found me and I was alive, but not very comfortable.”

Reportedly, the second time it came through her skylight in her home and the third time she was holding onto a metal stand and it went through her foot! Ouch! She joked that she “attracts electricity because she’s powerful.”

During the same game, she also revealed that she broke up with actor Anthony Hopkins because she couldn’t get over his role as Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs. She said that all she could think of was him “eating… you know.”

HBO Max is currently working on a sequel to the popular Christmas movie, A Christmas Story. Peter Billingsley, who played Ralphie in the original film, is already set to reprise his role in the sequel. He will play a grown-up Ralphie as well as serve as a producer on the series.

The original film came out in 1983 and was set in the 1940s.

Peter was a child star, best known for his role as Ralphie. He hasn’t done that much acting since then and mainly focused on being a director and producer. So far, HBO Max has not confirmed the rest of the cast. However, many of the original cast members are still working, except Darren McGavin, who played Ralphie’s father, passed away in 2006. Perhaps many of the original cast members will come back for the sequel!
