Suzanne Somers has decided to lift the non-acting decree she placed on DeWitt decades ago. Some are calling Somers’ offer for a role in a rumored Thighmaster commercial an olive branch. Others say Somers is just rubbing salt in the wound.
Los Angeles—A source close to “She’s the Sheriff” actress and fitness queen Suzanne Somers has quietly confirmed exclusively to The Daily Quarterly that Somers is close to reversing her Hollywood edict that Joyce DeWitt, Somers’ former “Three’s Company” co-star, not be allowed any acting jobs under any circumstances.
“Joyce has literally been waiting for this for decades,” the source said under the condition of anonymity. “She’s busy now trying to land herself a new agent, and has been trying to line up auditions, something she hasn’t been able to do since the mid ‘80s.”

Well, that’s not completely accurate, but he does own Star Wars. Continue reading →

New York—Despite being in town for a press junket to promote his upcoming Tuskegee Airmen film, “Red Tails” starring Cuba Gooding, Jr., filmmaking icon George Lucas was asked endlessly about his other films, particularly the six “Star Wars” movies. So after the seventh or eighth question about Princess Leia talking about memories of her mother in “Return of the Jedi” despite her mother dying during childbirth at the end of “Revenge of the Sith,” Lucas apparently had finally had enough of trying to talk about his future World War II film and let loose.
