His mens’ fragrance was the best ever.
ABC News has confirmed through a family member that legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away.
He was 82. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.
Actress and presenter Lynda Bellingham, who had been suffering from cancer, has died in her husband’s arms.
The 66-year-old star, best known for her long-running role as a mother in the Oxo TV adverts, had been battling colon cancer, which later spread to her lungs and liver, since being diagnosed in July last year. She died in the arms of her husband Michael in hospital on Sunday, her agent Sue Latimer said. The actress said she decided to end her treatment on August 13 to limit the amount of suffering her family would witness.
In a statement on behalf of Bellingham’s family, Latimer, said: “Lynda died peacefully in her husband’s arms yesterday evening at a London hospital.
“Her family, to whom she was devoted, would like to thank the nurses and staff for their tremendous care and support.
Several tributes have been made to the actress and presenter. Actor and comedian Simon Pegg, who worked with Bellingham on the sitcom Faith in the Future tweeted: “Lynda Bellingham, a gorgeous, brassy, funny, generous, talented human being. My first TV mother figure and and a treasured friend.”
Taika wrote the script. This could be lovely, or this could be ‘Lilo and Stitch’ level crap.
Moana is described as a “a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure,” and takes place in ancient Oceania in the South Pacific. The film will tell the story of its titular character, a teenage girl and “born navigator” who “sets sail in search of a fabled island,” according to a summary from Disney. “During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore,” Disney reveals.
The creative team behind Moana, which is CG-animated, has some serious Disney pedigree: Directors Ron Clements and John Musker also helmed The Little Mermaid and Aladdin among others. “Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said in a statement. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
There is already a strong Internet fanbase for the Polynesian Moana, who was previously expected to make her debut in 2018, and she serves as an example of Disney furthering representation of diverse and minority characters.
Some dumb Australians holidaying in Canada decided after a two-day bender that it would be fun to dump their sleeping buddy off the second floor balcony of their ski-slope chalet.
As one of these idiots allegedly said:
“Our mate Snowy passed out half naked on the couch after a 2 day bender. He needed a wake up, so we threw him off the second story balcony of our house into the snow.”
They’re lucky Snowy didn’t break his neck.
According to Live Leak, the video was allegedly pulled from You Tube and Facebook after complaints, and there are supposedly “rumours of a potential police investigation.”
