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

Dolly Parton has been married for decades but she still has innocent celebrity crushes like the rest of us! Recently, Dolly opened up about some of her past and present celebrity crushes. She admitted that her first celebrity crush was actually music icon Johnny Cash. These days, she has a bit of a crush on late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon.

Dolly shared, “In the early days, I had a big crush on Johnny Cash. He was young and skinny, and he just had that magnetism. The way he moved around — you know, so sexy. I found out later he was just having withdrawals from drugs, but it still touched me. He was so, so sexy.” She was only 13 when she had a crush on him! She later admitted her crush to him when Dolly became famous and she saw him out a lot.

She added, “He was my first male grown-up crush, he just really moved me. That’s when I realized what hormones do and what sex appeal really means. He just kind of stirred me somehow. And so I guess that’s when I realized I was becoming a little woman. Oh, we laughed about it through the years. I told him, you know you were my very first crush, my first sexy grown-up crush. He always got a kick out of that.”

Now she said, “Well, I have a crush on Jimmy Fallon now, but I’m big now, I can’t excuse myself on that. I think he is precious. He’s so funny. We get along so good, and sometimes you never know who you’re going to connect with, and I’ve always had really good luck with late-night guys.”

She said that she always loved being on David Letterman’s show as well as Johnny Carson’s too. Even though she jokes about her celebrity crush, she said that her husband Carl Dean will always be her favorite. They still find time for romance even though Dolly is so busy and Carl stays out of the spotlight.

Now tell us, who is your celebrity crush?

The Time ‘Andy Griffith Show’ Star Betty Lynn Appeared On ‘Little House On The Prairie’

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

Do you remember the time when Andy Griffith Show actress Betty Lynn appeared on Little House on the Prairie? Betty Lynn was known for her portrayal of Thelma Lou on The Andy Griffith Show, girlfriend to the Mayberry deputy Barney Fife.

While most fans remember Betty as Thelma Lou, she had a number of memorable and lovable roles throughout the years, including prominent roles in films such as June Bride, Sitting Pretty, and the 1950 film Cheaper By the Dozen.

Betty Lynn once appeared on an episode of ‘Little House’

The Little House episode that Betty was featured on was titled “If I Should Wake Before I Die.” In the episode, a woman named Miss Amy who is played by Josephine Hutchinson is sad and misses her family, especially since her birthday is coming up. After a conversation with the Ingalls girls, they decide that the best way to bring Miss Amy’s family together is to stage her own death (fitting because their conversation takes place at a funeral, of all places.) They’re all pretty certain that staging Miss Amy’s death, and holding a subsequent funeral, is the best way to bring back her family to Walnut Grove. In the specific episode, Betty plays a woman named Bridget.

Lucille Ball Shared How She Once Ran Away From Home As A Kid

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

Lucille Ball once shared the story of how she ran away from home on The Dick Cavett Show. She appeared on the show with her daughter Lucie Arnaz and longtime friend and fellow entertainer Carol Burnett. Dick asked her to tell the story of how she ran away from home when she was young. There had been different versions of the story going around at the time.

Lucille said that she would explain the story because Lucie was now old enough to hear it. She began, “I didn’t really run away.” She continued, “The first time I left. I was allowed to go away and stay with friends and family here in New York City.” She also attended the John Murray Anderson John Milton Dramatic School.

However, the school wrote home to Lucille’s mother and said she was wasting her money! Wow, they really got that one wrong. Later she added, “Once I ran away without permission. I got about as far as three blocks and there was my mother with a lunch and an umbrella. She knew I was going, she was watching the whole thing.” She said her mom gave her the umbrella and lunch!

Even when she tried to run away, Lucille admitted that she got away too homesick. She concluded, “I cost my mother a fortune coming back [from NYC to Jamestown] because I died of homesickness… I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep, I was violently ill, ran a fever and I’d call my mother. She’d send the money and I’d go home.” Did you ever run away from home or at least attempt it when you were a kid?

Dog The Bounty Hunter Had To Bail Nicolas Cage Out Of Jail

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

Nicolas Cage and Dog the Bounty Hunter conjure very different profiles that are equally recognizable from their colorful personality and strong presence. They’re not a duo people immediately imagine together, but they did indeed cross paths, back when Dog helped get Cage out of jail.

A significant part of Dog’s decision to help Cage came from a very relatable source. This meeting occurred back in 2011, when Cage was still married to wife number three of five, Alice Kim. Seven years into their stormy, volatile marriage, things reached a boiling point.

Dog the Bounty Hunter proved what a fan he was of Nicolas Cage

Cage and Kim rather famously would quarrel, and that was the case in 2011 and National Treasure was still enjoying renewed fan favor thanks to 2007’s sequel Book of Secrets. Dog himself would have loved to search for a bounty of a historic and golden variety with Nicolas Cage and publicly declared himself a fan of the franchise and Cage’s work on it.

However, Cage’s life was tumultuous at best over many years, including then. After one of him and Kim’s arguments turned especially heated, Cage ended up arrested while in New Orleans. Hearing the news, Dog actually hurried to bail Cage out, becoming his bondsman. He told reporters, “I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show. This is what I do for a living.” As for the why and what, Dog also answered, “I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage and will not be granting any interviews about my client as I wish to respect his privacy.”

So, what did happen?

Though Dog did not share details on his end, police reports fill in what responding officers witnessed from Cage. He was reportedly heavily intoxicated and grabbed Kim by the arm to drag her to the property. The final report does not note any physical injuries on Kim, but Cage did also strike at nearby cars and tried to enter a taxi.

When police told him to stop, he then replied, “Why don’t you just arrest me?” Ultimately, he was arrested and charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace. However, because of Dog the Bounty Hunter help and Cage’s legal team, the charges never amounted to anything more. Kim and Cage ended up divorced by the end of 2016.

McDonald’s Employees Share ‘Least Ordered’ Menu Item

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

McDonald’s workers have revealed the least ordered menu items, and there’s one in particular that rarely gets ordered. The specific item in mention is hot tea. Stephen Patula, who is an area supervisor from Waterford, Ohio, shared a video on TikTok about the beverage and its performance (or lack thereof) at his family’s franchised restaurants.

“Over the years, a ton of people have asked me what is the least ordered item at my McDonald’s,” he says in the clip. “We bought these stores in July and I have yet to serve one hot tea. I actually didn’t know that we sold hot tea until about a month ago. Ironically though, our most sold item is iced tea.”

Yes, the hot tea performs poorly, but their iced tea is the most-sold item on the menu. Wow! The TikTok video has since gone viral and has reached more than 5.6 million people, with nearly 600k likes. Many people who work at McDonald’s commented on the video, agreeing that the hot tea is not the most popular item on the menu… to the point that when people do order it, they have no idea how to make it.

“We sold a hot tea the other day. No one knew how to make it,” one commenter writes. “We had to get the [general manager] to help us.” Another adds, “I honestly didn’t even know McDonald’s had tea until I started using Uber Eats… It’s not very well advertised.”

Some commenters did chime in that they have a few regulars that do actually order the hot tea. Some even added that the hot tea sold more than the hot chocolate or Americanos, or even some of the food items. McDonald’s calls its hot tea “a robust black tea flavor with hints of floral and orange notes.”

The Cast Of ‘Baywatch’ Then And Now 2021

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

UPDATED 10/21/2021

 

Baywatch was one of the most iconic television shows of the 1990s. Featuring an all-star cast, the show followed a number of Los Angeles County Lifeguards as they patrol the LA beaches. The action drama starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, and became famous for showing scantily-clad lifeguards running on the beach.

Although the primary focus of the show was the lifeguards’ jobs, their interpersonal relationships were also an important aspect of the plot. The lifeguards regularly dealt with some pretty insane situations; drowning was normal, of course, but things like shark attacks, earthquakes, and serial killers also came up. The cast was known for being absolutely gorgeous. The men were toned and tanned, and the women were classic “bombshells.” Although it feels like the show was on just a few years ago, it’s actually been 17 years since the show went off the air! Check out what the cast is doing now.

David ‘The Hoff” Hasselhoff is 65 years old now, but he’s still as fit as ever. When Baywatch ended, David’s career continued to grow. He’s appeared in movies like DodgeballClick, and Hop. He’s also appeared on Broadway, in shows like The Producers and Chicago. David’s daughters, Taylor and Hayley, are both in their twenties.

If you ever wondered what Mitch would sound like singing, David has you covered, as he’s since branched out to music. He is in music videos and appears in concerts alike. After singing for Berlin when it was still divided, David gained a popular and devoted German following, and now he frequents Germany’s Ze Network.

After Baywatch, Pamela continued acting and modeling. She starred in movies like Raw Justice and Barb Wire, before taking a break from the spotlight. In the mid-2000s, Pamela returned to the public eye, posing for magazines like Marie ClaireElleGQ, and Playboy. Pamela is also an activist. She has two sons, Brandon and Dylan, with ex-husband Tommy Lee.

Nicole Eggert hasn’t done a ton of acting since Baywatch, but she has appeared on a number of reality television shows. Nicole has two daughters, Dilyn and Keegan.

Sadly, some of her television appearances haven’t been for positive reasons. She was featured on Botched, the reality series that follows an expert surgeon correcting plastic surgeries gone awry. In Eggert’s case, she needed breast reduction.

Jeremy Jackson (Hobie Buchannon)

In 2006, Jeremy admitted that he had a drug problem during his time on Baywatch. He says the drugs are part of the reason he left the show. Throughout the years, Jeremy has spoken publicly about struggling with addiction. Jeremy has been arrested twice in 2015 for stabbing people; in 2017, he was sentenced to 270 days in jail as part of a plea deal for one of the stabbings.

He had been married to Loni Willison, but the two ended up splitting and she had not been seen for some time. The missing woman was found living on the streets of Los Angeles while also struggling with addiction as well.

When David left Baywatch in 1999, he started working on the show Witchblade. He later starred in Beyond The Break and appeared on the reality show Confessions of a Teen Idol.

Together with wife Susan Brubaker, he is the parent of one child, a daughter named Brit Madison. Hearkening to his Baywatch experience, David reflected on the event and said, “I thought surfing the perfect wave was the coolest feeling in the world, until my baby daughter Brit was born.” He added, “She’s a total game changer.” Born in the autumn of 2011, she’ll be ten now!
