It has officially been a year since there was an internal investigation into the Ellen Degeneres talk show. Several producers were fired. Ellen has been under fire ever since, with many people now not believing she is as nice as she always seemed.

This year, Ellen announced that this season would be the show’s last. The talk show is set to end in 2022 with the Kelly Clarkson Show taking over its timeslot next year. A source has said that it has been a different environment since the investigation. The source said, “There’s now a structure.”

Things on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ are different now

Ellen has since apologized but still said that the whole thing felt orchestrated. An ex-staff member shared, “I don’t think that she’ll ever admit to having done anything wrong.” They also said she has an “ego so big that I don’t think she’s learned.”

They added, “I just want Ellen to understand what happened instead of saying it was ‘orchestrated.’ I think what the crew hopes more than anything is that she’s learned you can’t treat people like that.”

‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant Makes History During LeVar Burton’s First Time Hosting Show

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

Actor LeVar Burton began his guest-hosting gig on Jeopardy! He has been lobbying for the job for months now and gets to try his turn as a host of the longtime game show. While he was hosting his very first show, one Jeopardy! contestant made history. Contestant Patrick Pearce broke the record for lowest Jeopardy! score.

He ended up with minus $7,400. It broke the record of previous contestant Stephanie Hull in 2015. She finished with minus $6,800. Patrick answered a few questions wrong but was making a comeback. Then he didn’t get a Daily Double question right which ultimately put him way too far in the hole.

However, most people were too busy watching LeVar Burton and seeing how he would do as a host. He began the show by paying tribute to the late Alex Trebek. He said, “As a longtime viewer of the show, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to guest host ‘Jeopardy!’ And I’m proud to be here to honor Alex’s legacy. I’m gonna do my best to ensure that these talented ‘Jeopardy!’ contestants enjoy their moment here as well.”

He added on Good Morning America, “For me, my standard of excellence is so intense that my initial approach was to try and be as good as Alex was. Of course, I realized right away that was an impossibility. The man had 37 years to perfect his mastery.”

The Cast Of ‘The Love Boat’ Then And Now 2021

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

UPDATED 7/27/2021

Welcome aboard The Love Boat! This truly escapist 70s content was centered around a luxury passenger cruise ship and its crew. Nearly every up and coming or even A-List – 1970s actor appeared in at least one episode of The Love Boat, as each episode needs new guests. This show is a time capsule to the late 70s, with the fashion and mood to match. Executive produced by Aaron Spelling might have made some magical deal for exceptional creativity, as he already had helped create Starsky & Hutch, Charlie’s Angels, and it seemed about 70% of all programs.

They even paired for much of its run, for a Saturday Evening Twin Billings with Spelling’s 5th big claim to fame, Fantasy Island, and fans could truly escape to the warmer climates each weekend, for some romance and adventure. Today, join us back to the MS Pacific Princess to revisit the cast of one of the most iconic television shows of all time. It’s time to hit the open waters up against the flow of time and escape once more on The Love Boat.

Gavin MacLeod (Captain Merrill Stubing)

Captain Merrill Stubing was perfect as both the ship and show’s anchor, providing a fatherly role to crew and viewers alike. When he got The Love Boat script, Gavin MacLeod’s agent told him it flat out “sucked,” but that Spelling envisioned MacLeod for the part, and Gavin, being the seasoned tv pro he was, recognized the opportunity as a gold mine in the form of a feel-good show that was just what he was looking for, and America agreed, for nearly a decade.

MacLeod began acting in 1957, after serving in the US Airforce. Then he moved to New York City, officially changed his name from Allan See to Gavin MacLeod, surmising that See was just too confusing of a last name to make it big with. His first credited film role was in 1958’s I Want to Live!, a prison drama starring Susan Hayward, where he noticed and cast in his breakout role as the nervous Ernest Hunkle in 1959’s Operation Petticoat. His first regular television gig began in 1962 as “Happy” Haines on the Ernest Borgnine-led vessel, McHale’s Navy. However, he left the show after just two seasons to appear in the Steve McQueen film, The Sand Pebbles.

Then the 1970’s brought MacLeod his biggest role to date: Murray Slaughter on CBS’ wildly popular Mary Tyler Moore Show, which won him lasting fame and two Golden Globe nominations. Also in 1970, fans rushed to see him co-star with Clint Eastwood, Don Rickles, and company, in Kelly’s Heroes. In more recent years, we’ve seen MacLeod guest-appear in some fun comedies from The King of Queens to That ‘70s Show.  He and his wife were Evangelical Protestants and hosted the Trinity Broadcasting Network for 17 years, in particular a show about marriage called Back on Course.

In 2013, he released his memoir, aptly called This Is Your Captain Speaking: My Fantastic Voyage Through Hollywood, Faith & Life. Sadly, after a period of ill health, Gavin died at his home in Palm Desert, California, on May 29th, 2021. His onscreen daughter Jill Whelan is quoted fondly remembering him, saying, “He’s one of the best people i’ve ever known” and “that’s my dad” – so beautiful.

The Captain was 90 years old, and from land to sea, he lived one heck of a life.

Bernie Kopell (Adam “Doc” Bricker)

Adam Bricker, simply known as Doc, was the playboy doctor of the group. Always hurrying up his patients and releasing a nice “heeee” when he finally does relax. Kopell was already well-known to TV audiences, when he taught himself a German accent and snagged the recurring role of Maxwell Smart’s KAOStic nemesis, Siegfried, on the Mel Brooks/Buck Henry-created series, Get Smart.

The role of Doc on The Love Boat was a job of a lifetime, at its height earning him nearly $40,000 for each episode, and allowing him to work with friends and meet his Hollywood idols. In recent years, we saw Kopell cameo in the 2008 Get Smart film reboot, and his last venture was eight episodes of the CBS sitcom B Positive. Today he’s 88 years old, and has a film set to release soon, titled Our Almost Completely True Story.

Lauren Tewes (Julie McCoy)

Julie McCoy is the cruise director of the ship and was cast the day before the third Love Boat pilot was shot, impressively chosen out of a pool – or ocean – of a hundred other actresses. Sadly, Lauren Tewes struggled with a highly public cocaine addiction throughout the show, which led to her being replaced after the 7th season. Thankfully, Lauren managed to break her dangerous habit and went back to school to train as a cheese specialist. She still does a bit of acting and video game voice work, but also works as a sous chef at a catering company in Seattle.

Today, she’s 67 years old and will celebrate her 68th birthday in October 2021. We last saw her in the film Potato Dreams of America earlier in 2021. Even though she has been clean and sober for almost 35 years, she still feels stigmatized by her former Love Boat cast-mates. But we’re certainly proud of you, here Lauren.

Fred Grandy (Gopher)

Who could forget about good ole lovable Gopher, the ship’s chief purser, was an adorable pull for younger female audiences. Suitably, Gopher was usually right at the center of the show’s plotlines. Maybe because he had a hand in writing them; he and Bernie Kopell wrote for The Love Boat – 12 episodes to be exact.

Grandy stepped onto the Hollywood scene in 1973 before nabbing a recurring role as Chris on the great Bea Arthur led, Maude. Then after his regular role in the short-lived Saturday morning show Monster Squad ended in ‘76, he grabbed his passport and boarded The Love Boat. He took a hiatus from acting after the love boat ended in ‘86, but by 2003 he returned to set, and had a recurring role in season three of The Mindy Project in 2014. He joined the doctoring team because Fred’s son, Charlie Grandy, was a writer for the Mindy Kaling-led show.

Grandy also hosted The Grandy Group, a morning radio talk show in Washington, D.C. Remarkably, Grandy had just the right credentials to, in 1986, become a member of the United States House of Representatives. He successfully served four terms until he decided not to run in 1995. Today Fred is 73, and does it all. After serving in Congress he became CEO of Goodwill Industries International until 2000.  He’s still acting too! Last seen in a 2020 episode of the Showtime comedy, Moonbase 8.

Ted Lange (Isaac Washington)

Isaac Washington was the second most important person on the vessel. No, he was not the co-captain. He was the handle-bar-sporting bartender of course! You can’t have romance without some liquid courage. Ted really enjoyed his role too; not only did it pay the bills and give him a cast of friends he would call family, but when out and about in Hollywood, he would frequently get free drinks from bartenders hoping that Ted would use the drinks in the show! Cheers to that.

Ted Lange began acting in 1972, quickly got a series regular gig as Junior on the show, That’s My Mama. Then he went straight into the odd sitcom, Mr. T and Tina, which we actually include in our countdown of the oddest shows that graced the 70s screen – so check that one out next. Lange also wrote the 1977 screenplay for Passing Through, starring the Jefferson’s very own Marla Gibbs.  He continued writing, going so far as to pen six episodes of The Love Boat, and even directing 12. He found some more success in directing too, with loads of TV credits to his name, from 10 episodes of The New Gidget in 87, to more recent in 2012 with 23 episodes of The First Family.

And maybe he learned some tips as a bartender, because Issac wrote a sex advice column, titled “Ask Isaac”, with adult film actress Jenna Jameson. He also appeared in the fourth season of Celebrity Fit Club and lost 28 lbs, nice job! Today Lange is 73 years old and his next project to be released is a horror flick co-starring Snoop Dogg called Blood Pageant, bloody brilliant.

Jill Whelan (Vicki Stubing)

Vicki Stubing is the young daughter of Captain Merrill Stubing, and boarded the show mid-seasons 3. The show changed her life. Not only didn’t she gain a new father through Gavin MacLeod, but she got to dance with Ginger Rogers, and even became pen pals with Ethel Merman.

Comedy fans will surely remember this next role – but don’t call Shirley. As Jill was hysterical as the sick child getting serenaded and suffocated in the spoof, Airplane! In 1999, Whelan stopped acting and started working as an investigative producer at a Los Angeles television station. But in 2012 she returned to acting, taking on a role in the horror flick 6 Degrees of Hell. And we last saw her in 2017’s TV movie, Take It From the Top, directed by The Love Boat’s very own Ted Lange. Jill was a prominent face for Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign against drugs.

Today Jill is 54 years old, and resides in LA with her two sons, and in 2017, she married former Denver Broncos quarterback Jeff Knapple, and also is a celebrations ambassador for Princess Cruises, how fitting.

WWII Veteran Gets ‘Ultimate Surprise’ For His 93rd Birthday

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

WWII veteran Peter Ruvolo got the ultimate birthday surprise for his 93rd birthday and he recently went on Fox & Friends to discuss his big surprise! An entire platoon of young Marines paraded by his home, and it’s a very special moment for him because he and his friends started the Young Marines of the Palm Beaches Program back in the ’90s.

The members of the program today stopped by his home to shower him with the utmost gratitude for his commitment, hard work, service, and efforts.

While on Fox & Friends, Ruvolo told co-host Pete Hegseth that he “never” expected any of this to happen for his 93rd birthday. “It was an honor and it left me in shock that I couldn’t speak,” Ruvolo said alongside his daughter, Joanne. She actually had something a bit different planned for the occasion; she originally planned a simple walkthrough, but of course, the Marines had something different and more extravagant in mind!

“My original plan was to do a drive-by parade for my dad, patriotic, but I only wanted to do it if I could get some of the Marines, the young Marines, to get into the car and wave some flags to be patriotic,” Joanne shares. “And when I called up Cindy Townsen from the Young Marines of West Palm Beach, she said, ‘Oh, no, no,’ she said, ‘We’re doing a full-on parade for your dad.’”

An honor for everyone involved

“It was wonderful, absolutely amazing day for our whole family and our community,” Joanne continues. Frederick MacNeil is a Young Marine Staff Sergeant and also spoke on Fox & Friends about what an incredible honor it was to be able to do this for Ruvolo.

“Being a part of the small amount of people who were able to honor that last generation of men, the men that aren’t just like us, but gave that ultimate sacrifice, and were able to be there for such an amazing event, it was something that I can’t even explain.”

Paulina Porizkova Denied From Dating App Because She’s ‘Famous’

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

Model Paulina Porizkova recently shared on Instagram that she’s been denied from a dating app because she’s famous. It appears that the app Hinge automatically bans people who use celebrity names… even if it’s actually them.

OK. What’s up , @hinge ? I signed up a while back, and was booted off instantly because I had violated guide lines. I didn’t even get to post my photo,” Paulina writes on Instagram alongside a photo of herself.

Paulina Porizkova booted off dating app… why?

She continues, “My name, it seems, is against guidelines? I called, I emailed. No one bothered to reply. Then , a friend suggested I use a different phone number and my nickname. I got a few nice dates that way. And boom, now when I need it- I discover @hinge has booted me off again! What’s a lady to do?”

Many fans rushed to the comments, some asking her out, and others suggesting other dating apps that she might have more success with. Paulina is dating for the first time again since she was 19 since her late husband, Ric Ocasek, passed away in 2019 after they had separated and her recent short-lived relationship with Aaron Sorkin.

Other dating apps are no success

Fans additionally couldn’t believe that Paulina wasn’t having luck finding love on dating apps. “If you need @Hinge to meet men there is seriously no help for the rest of us,” one woman commented. However, Paulina ran to respond to all these comments, noting that some of the other dating apps she had tried were like a “shallow pond.”

One of the reasons this may be, according to Yahoo!, is because of filters. On dating apps, people can set their preferences ahead of time, or filters. This means preferred age, gender, how close they live to them, etc. But because of this, men in their 40s and 50s may not even see women in their 50s when they go on dating sites.

Because of these filters, Paulina was likely not even coming up in other men’s preferred category of women. It’s mostly a theory, but it makes sense as to why Paulina called some dating apps a “shallow pond.” We obviously wish her luck in finding love, whether it be in person or on a dating app!
