We are where nostalgia lives

Actress Olivia de Havilland may be 102 years old, but she is still standing up for herself. Olivia is currently suing FX Networks concerning how she was portrayed in the series Feud: Bette and Joan. Olivia, a Hollywood legend best known for her roles in Gone With the Wind and The Heiress said she felt blindsided by the show.

She said she was furious that she was never consulted and never imagined that she would be misrepresented in such a way. Her battle with FX Networks has been going on for over a year and a half and she is now asking for The Supreme Court to get involved. She is alleging that the network never got her permission and defamed her in the series.

Updates On The Case

She lost bids in a California appeals court last March and the state Supreme Court in July, so she now asks for The Supreme Court to hopefully pursue a jury trial. She says that the show misrepresents her as a “profane gossip” and made up storylines about her screaming obscenities at her sister, actress Joan Fontaine. Joan died in 2013 at age 96.

Other studios are watching this case closely. If Olivia does win this case, it could mean serious changes for networks and their shows depicting famous people. This isn’t the first time Olivia sued a network either. She sued Warner Bros. in 1943 (she was only 27 years old) over a restrictive studio contract. The studio blacklisted her but she ended up winning and her career still went on after that lawsuit. There is now a De Havilland Law which “prohibits the enforcement of personal services contracts beyond seven years.”

What Will The Supreme Court Say?

FX is currently also not backing down on the case. The Supreme Court could make a decision next month. Stay tuned for more on this case. Olivia currently lives a relatively quiet life outside of this drama and resides in Paris, France. She is one of the only living members left from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

We are where nostalgia lives

Kirk Douglas, one of the last surviving stars of the film industry’s Golden Age, recently turned 102 years old on Sunday and was joined by his 99-year-old wife, Anne Buydens, in birthday celebrations. The two were placed outside their Beverly Hills home, greeting many who stopped by their home to send well wishes to Douglas on his birthday.

Their mansion was decked out in a floral arrangement of white roses that spelled out the actor’s monumental age. The two appeared to be in great spirits for the celebration! Many members of the Douglas family also shared their tribute to the 102-year-old, one of them being Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kirk’s daughter-in-law.

Happy 102nd birthday to the most beautiful man. We love you Kirk.

A post shared by Catherine Zeta-Jones (@catherinezetajones) on Dec 9, 2018 at 4:58am PST

Catherine Zeta-Jones posted a touching video tribute on her official Instagram account with the caption, “Happy 102nd birthday to the most beautiful man. We love you, Kirk.” The video featured a collage of photos and video clips of Douglas throughout the years. There was also a side shot of a young girl playing the piano to Christina Aguilera’s hit “Beautiful,” who is rumored to be Zeta-Jones’ and Michael Douglas’ daughter, Carys.

Speaking of Carys, she also posted a touching tribute of her father and grandfather together. “102 years young to my inspiration, my pappy,” the post caption read, “I can’t put into words how much you mean to me. Happy birthday, I love you.”

Instagram

Dylan, Zeta-Jones’ and Douglas’ son, also prepared a little tribute to his grandfather as well, featuring a younger photo of Douglas boxing.

“Happy birthday Pappy 102 years!!! Though you are adored by millions, my love for you is by far the greatest. Love you forever and always,” Dylan wrote on his Instagram account to honor his grandfather.

According to Douglas’ family members, the 102-year-old is on top of things and really “with it” as far as new-age and modern items go. Michael Douglas actually revealed on Live with Kelly and Ryan that his father has actually picked up FaceTime and absolutely loves the concept of it.

Michael also revealed that his father is a pro at betting on games and actually beat him out of $100 at a Jets game. He’s still just as sharp as ever!

Instagram

One thing that is perfectly clear about the family is that they are all super supportive of each other, and that doesn’t end with age; Kirk Douglas is a shining example of that. Zeta-Jones spoke to PEOPLE about Kirk being at Michael’s Hollywood Walk of Fame speech.

“Seeing Kirk get emotional when Michael said, ‘I’m so proud to be your son, Dad’ — even now I think about it… Kirk being there in his wheelchair — he was adamant. No way he was not going to be there.”

It was announced in September that Dolly would be the 2019 MusiCares Person Of The Year. She was chosen for her contributions to country music and many charities. Dolly started a children’s literacy organization in 1995 called the Imagination Library. Since then, she has donated over 100 million books to children around the world.

The proceeds from the MusiCares Gala go directly to their charitable organization. The donations go towards musicians in need to help them receive addiction recovery support, access to health programs, educational workshops, and emergency financial assistance. It is a very important charity for struggling musicians.

CDC Warns People To Stop Eating Raw Cookie Dough And Cake Mix

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

We are where nostalgia lives

One of the best things about baking cookies is stealing a piece of cookie dough and eating it. People absolutely love eating cookie dough, but it is not safe to eat the dough since it has raw eggs. That is why there are so many popular recipes for “safe-to-eat” cookie dough, but those recipes never seem to taste as good. Right?

Well, it is time to get over your love of cookie dough, at least, that is what the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is telling everyone. The CDC has issued a warning against cookie dough and cake mix. The CDC wants you to “say no to raw dough!”.

As you may or may not know, eating raw cookie dough can lead to sickness due to salmonella and that is why the CDC is issuing a warning. This happens when you eating cookie dough or cake mix that includes uncooked eggs. If you eat raw eggs, you can start to feel sick shortly after. Some symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, chills, and abdominal pain. Most people can recover by hydrating with proper fluids. However, some cases of salmonella can be so severe, a sick person might need to get IV fluids and antibiotics to recover.

Not only does the CDC warn against cookie dough and cake mix because of the eggs, but it also has to do with the flour. Flour you buy at the grocery store is typically a raw agriculture product, which means it hasn’t been treated to kill germs like E. coli. These harmful germs can contaminate the grain while it is still in the field and the germs are only killed when the flour is cooked. This means any raw dough (cookie, cake, brownie, and bread) is not safe to eat.

According to the CDC, there was an outbreak in 2016 of E. coli infections in 63 people that were linked to raw flour. Symptoms of E. coli infection are similar to salmonella. Some symptoms of E. coli are nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea, fevers over 100 F to 101 F, loss of appetite, and mild dehydration.

The CDC does have a ton of suggestions on how to avoid getting sick when working with raw eggs and flour:

  • Do not taste or eat any raw dough or batter, whether for cookies, tortillas, pizza, biscuits, pancakes, or crafts made with raw flour, such as homemade play dough or holiday ornaments.
  • Do not let children play with or eat raw dough, including dough for crafts.

  • Bake or cook raw dough and batter, such as cookie dough and cake mix, before eating.
  • Follow the recipe or package directions for cooking or baking at the proper temperature and for the specified time.
  • Do not make milkshakes with products that contain raw flour, such as cake mix.
  • Do not use raw, homemade cookie dough in ice cream.
  • Cookie dough ice cream sold in stores contains dough that has been treated to kill harmful bacteria.
Wikipedia
  • Keep raw foods such as flour or eggs separate from ready-to-eat foods. Because flour is a powder, it can spread easily.
  • Follow label directions to refrigerate products containing raw dough or eggs until they are cooked.
  • Clean up thoroughly after handling flour, eggs, or raw dough:
  • Wash your hands with running water and soap after handling flour, raw eggs, or any surfaces that they have touched.
  • Wash bowls, utensils, countertops and other surfaces with warm, soapy water.

Now, have you eaten cookie dough your entire life and never had anything bad happen to you? Or were you always too afraid to eat the dough because your mom told you to never try it?
