Inside the Secrets, Scandals and Legacy of ‘Full House’ From Creator Jeff Franklin (EXCLUSIVE)

September 22, 1987. Thirty years ago. Ronald Reagan was president, and “Full House” debuted on ABC’s worst night at 8 p.m. Friday, considered to be not a time slot, but rather a “death slot.” We barely made the Top 75. The reviews of the show were terrible — “cheesy, saccharine, mind-numbing” — and that was from the one… Read more »

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Has More Freedom Than Ever

A few minutes into my demo of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, I realized I was experiencing something I’d never felt before in an Uncharted game: total freedom. Even in dozens of hours exploring with Nathan Drake, Uncharted has never given me the sense that I can do whatever I want in any order, but in The Lost Legacy, that changes.

The section of the game I played – chapter four in The Lost Legacy’s overall story – dropped me into an expansive area of Southern India’s Western Ghats. As new protagonist Chloe Frazer, the world was my oyster, with the franchise’s first completely non-linear experience and the largest single area ever in an Uncharted game.

While my ultimate goal to advance the story was clear (finding a few statues that match corresponding symbols on an artifact), the game never forced my hand. From exploring ruins to searching for treasure to just shooting down groups of enemies, there was never any pressure to do anything but wander. While Nadine Ross – Chloe’s reluctant partner on the journey – would occasionally give me a hint that could lead to an objective, I was able to discover everything from actual story moments to hidden treasures at my own pace.

How Heath Ledger’s Legacy Is Nurturing the Next Generation of Dreamers

Nine years after Heath Ledger’s death, members of his inner circle share memories of his zest for life and his troubled final days. Subscribe now for the emotional new details and never-before-seen photos — only in PEOPLE.

Heath Ledger‘s legacy is helping aspiring Aussie actors get a start in Hollywood.

In partnership with his family and high-profile friends, the organization Australians in Film created the Heath Ledger Scholarship, which aims to help young actors make the difficult transition to Hollywood — just like the late Australian actor did.

“It’s designed to help Australian actors make their international career leap, sort of like a network to establish them in Hollywood and provide them with support and assistance,” Ledger’s sister Kate tells PEOPLE in the latest issue. “From industry introduction to managing finances to providing airfares back and forth to Australia, we aim to provide the complete transitional package.”

The scholarship has been awarded annually since 2009, and winners have included Fifty Shades Darker‘s Bella Heathcote and James Mackay, who appeared in Hacksaw Ridge and can be seen in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Ledger is the focus the new Spike TV documentary I Am Heath Ledger (set to premiere on Spike TV on May 17 following its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23), which provides a revealing glimpse of the star including his early days as an actor. Like those his scholarship aims to help, Ledger himself made the leap from Australia to California in 1998 after moving from his hometown of Perth to Sydney when he was 17.

Courtesy Ledger Estate

When his career took off in 1999 following the sleeper smash 10 Things I Hate About You, the actor made sure to help out other Aussies coming up behind him by letting them crash at his house — even if he didn’t know them that well.

“I think he knew how hard it was himself because when he first moved over, he didn’t have anything,” Kate says. “It’s such a tough existence when you have nothing and you have to start from the beginning. Hollywood is big and scary and it is a hard thing to crack.”

For more on Heath Ledger, including the revealing new documentary about his life and legacy, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

Now in its ninth year, the scholarship is appointed by a panel of high-profile judges who review hundreds of submissions. This year’s judges include Naomi Watts, Ryan Murphy and Gary Oldman, while past judges have included Colin Farrell, Rose Byrne, Jude Law and Vince Vaughn.

It includes a seven-day trip to California, $ 16,000 for expenses like rent, a living allowance and transportation, and even acting classes. Benefactors for the scholarship include the Ledger family, Michelle Williams, Naomi Watts, Hugh Jackman, Rose Byrne, Vince Vaughn, Liam Hemsworth, Baz Luhrmann, Nicole Kidman and The Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Through the scholarship, its judges and benefactors hope to nurture Australian actors whose talents can burn as brightly as the star who inspired it.

“Sometimes people break through because of one thing, whether it’s good looks or talent or timing or who knows? But he sort of had everything down,” Watts says in I Am Heath Ledger. “One of the most powerful things for an actor, particularly for a man, is their voice and their physicality and their level of masculinity, and he had all of those things in spades.”

Applications for the 2017 edition are open now.

24: Legacy: “10:00 P.M. – 11:00 P.M.” Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

This was a very dense episode. While light on action, this week added some much needed plot progression and clearly laid out a roadmap for the finale. Everyone had a personal moment and in a lot of ways showed the potential this series has had since the beginning. Where previously one character’s development usually came at the cost of another’s, this week everyone was in sync, and the entire cast benefited from the cohesion.

John Donovan was the standout character this episode. Jimmy Smits is a very capable actor and he finally had some material to showcase those talents. This hour begins with Donovan on the verge of tears, terrified of the entire world watching his wife’s murder, while being completely powerless to stop it. He ends the episode defiant, holding the Director of National Intelligence hostage in the Pentagon. Donovan has generally been underdeveloped this season, but this episode did a lot of good for the presidential hopeful.

As we learned, Tony is now the leader of a mercenary unit that operates outside the law and handles the jobs the government can’t have on the books. Bernard finds this an interesting way for the character to be portrayed, telling IGN, “He’s been a leader for the good guys and the bad. Now he kind of skirts that line. He’s definitely not a bad guy – it’s a shade of grey.”

Coretta Scott King Was ‘Architect’ of Husband Martin Luther King Jr.’s Legacy, Daughter Says

Coretta Scott King has long been known as the powerful force behind one of the nation’s greatest civil rights icons, her husband Martin Luther King Jr. But she has also cemented herself as a legendary activist in her own right.

“What we know of my father really came from her resilience, her determination, her faith, her courage,” Bernice King, the youngest daughter of Martin and Coretta, told ABC NewsRobin Roberts in an interview that aired Monday on Good Morning America.

“She used to say that this family is called. We grew up hearing that a lot,” she added, calling her mother the “architect of this King legacy.”

Scott King died of ovarian cancer in 2006 — nearly four decades after King Jr. was assassinated in 1968. Now, Scott King’s experiences and legacy are chronicled in a posthumous memoir called My Life, My Love, My Legacythe book is based on hours of never-before-published interviews.

“I believe Martin was chosen. I believe I was chosen. And I say to the kids, ‘this family was chosen as well,’ ” Scott King said in the memoir penned by journalist Barbara Reynolds.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Scott King stood alongside her husband during the civil rights movement, but suggested in one of the unheard interviews that she would not live in his shadow.

“I said, ‘Well you know, I love being your wife and the mother of your children. But if that was all that I did, I would go crazy,’ ” she said when recalling a conversation with a friend.

And her strides were not lost on King Jr. who at one point declared: “A wife can either make or break a husband. My wife was always stronger than I was through the struggle. In the darkest moments, she always brought a light of hope.”

The couple’s daughter, Bernice, recalled a 1956 incident in which their home was bombed while King Jr. was away.

“Mother was the one who first experienced the manifestation of a threat,” she said. “She had to first come to a resolve that ‘I’m willing to risk the loss of my own life before even him.’ ”

RELATED VIDEO: Donald Trump Attacks Congressman John Lewis On Twitter

Bernice said she hopes that those who read her mother’s memoir will come to know that “Martin didn’t make Coretta Scott King. When they met she was prepared.”

“I honestly believe, in a different kid of way, she did greater things. Probably because she lived longer,” Bernice told Roberts of her mother. “Also because she had the insight to see who he really was, and articulate it in a way that an entire world could embrace regardless of your background.”

My Life, My Love, My Legacy (Henry Holt and Co.) will hit bookstores across the nation and online on Jan. 17.

The Legacy of Debbie Reynolds

Artistic gifts aside, Debbie Reynolds made it her mission to help preserve Hollywood history by collecting iconic costumes.
The multitasking actress died Wednesday at the age of 84 in Los Angeles.
Deborah Nadoolman Landis, director of The David C. Copley Center for Costume Design at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television, said she suffered from whiplash while reading the tags walking down the aisles of Reynolds’ San Luis Obispo storage facility. “Anyone would,” she wrote in an e-mail, singling out Cecil Beaton’s “Ascot Dress” for Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady” and Irene Sharaff’s gold gown for Barbra Streisand in “Hello Dolly” as examples.
Further building her case, Landis noted designs worn by Greta Garbo in “Anna Karenina,” Norma Shearer in the 1937 film version of “Marie Antoinette,” Joan Crawford in “Mildred Pierce,” Donna Reed in “It’s A Wonderful Life,” Gene Kelly in “Singing’ in the Rain,” and Marilyn Monroe in “Bus Stop” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.”
Landis referred to how Reynolds once sat on her sofa and cried after her dreams of a costume center had been crushed by a series of setbacks. “To her lifelong frustration and disappointment she received little respect from our industry (and Los Angeles) for this valiant

Origins of the National Security State and the Legacy of Harry S. Truman

Origins of the National Security State and the Legacy of Harry S. Truman


The Cold War profoundly transformed American society, perhaps most significantly through the development of national security institutions that are very much alive more than two decades after the end of the Cold War. This volume explores the great divide between those in the Truman administration who defended tradition and those who spoke for the new ideology of national security. In a highly charged political environment that pitted not only Republican against Democrat, but also civilian authority against military authority and the legislative branch against the executive, Americans struggled to adapt to a new world order while retaining ideals of freedom and individuality. At issue were basic questions about the nation’s postwar purpose and political identity, the role of the military in civilian life, and even the rights of the individual versus the rights of the state.

Public Financing And Delivery Of Hiv/aids Care: Securing The Legacy Of Ryan White


Each year it is estimated that approximately 40,000 people in the U.S. are newly infected with HIV. In the late 1990s, the number of deaths from AIDS dropped 43% as a result of highly active antiretroviral therapy. Unfortunately, the complex system currently in place for financing and delivering publicly financed HIV care undermines the significant advances that have been made in the development of new technologies to treat it. Many HIV patients experience delays in access to other services that would support adhering to treatment. As a result, each year opportunities are missed that could reduce the mortality, morbidity, and disability suffered by individuals with HIV infections. Public Financing and Delivery of HIV/AIDS Care examines the current standard of care for HIV patients and assesses the extent the system currently used for financing and delivering care allows individuals with HIV to actually receive it. The book recommends an expanded federal program for the treatment of individuals with HIV, administered at the state level. This program would provide timely access and consistent benefits with a strong focus on comprehensive and continuous care and access to antiretroviral therapy. It could help improve the quality of life of HIV/AIDS patients, as well as reduce the number of deaths among those infected.

Apollo Theater Celebrates Its Rich Legacy With 10th Annual Spring Gala

Monday night marked the 10th anniversary of the Apollo Theater’s annual Spring Gala, which was met with much fanfare.

The event, which featured a celebratory benefit concert, was hosted by Extra TV correspondent AJ Calloway and featured star-studded performances from Nile Rodgers and his pioneering disco-funk group Chic, Ne-Yo, Luke James, Rosanne Cash, “The Voice” season 8 contestant Kimberly Nichole and South African a capella trio The Soil.

During his opening monologue, Calloway shared some of his personal experiences and memories of the Apollo.

“I used to sneak into the Apollo when I was in high school,” Calloway said. “I was in [New] Jersey, my parents didn’t know I was here, but I used to watch Amateur Night so I’m very happy to be on this stage. And I started my career here. The first time I was on this stage was ‘106 & Park’ and that was 15 years ago. So I’m really, really happy to be here.”

In addition to Calloway’s return to the Apollo stage, the event also served as a homecoming for Rodgers, who landed his second professional gig performing with the theater’s house band. Prior to taking to the stage to perform a medley of Chic’s biggest hits, Rodgers opened up to The Huffington Post about the significance of headlining this year’s annual gala.

“When I played here I was 19-years-old,” Rodgers said. “I had just finished a year with ‘Sesame Street,’ which was my first professional job. And I was just telling the band how it was the first time I walked out onto this stage. It’s amazing for me to be here now, all these years later playing my own music, which is crazy.”

For Apollo Theater President & CEO, Jonelle Procope the Gala has served as an important part in the theater’s growth for the past 10 years.

“Although the Apollo is now in its 81st year, we have only been a nonprofit since 1991 and I would say it has really been over the last 10 years that the institution has experienced tremendous growth as a nonprofit with expanded artistic, educational and community programs,” Procope said to the Huffington Post.

“The Gala, which is one of our largest fundraisers, has provided crucial support toward those initiatives. It also allows us to celebrate and honor the Apollo’s rich legacy as the musical home for so many legendary artists like Nile Rodgers and the opportunity to continue that legacy as an important springboard for the next generation of artists.”

The benefit, which raises funds for the theater’s education and community outreach programs, also honored James Dolan, President and CEO of Cablevision Systems Corporation and Executive Chairman of Madison Square Garden, who accepted the Corporate Award on behalf of The Madison Square Garden Company, and Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation, who accepted the Percy C. Sutton Civic Leadership Award on behalf of The Ford Foundation.

Motown Gratitude A Legacy Of Love

25 thumbs up!!!!!

After being raised in the suburbs of Detroit and growing up on oldies but goodies, it made complete sense for the coolest manager in the world to ask me to go see Motown the Musical at the Pantages Theatre. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a must! I loved it so much, that I went the following week with my music partner. In addition, I gifted tickets to dear colleagues in my life! You will laugh, cry, and dance all in one throughout the show! I love musicals, and I’ve been to a hand full of shows but I must say that Motown is truly its own magical gem.

2015-06-01-1433138689-910590-chonacasmotown.jpg

Maybe it’s because I’m from the D and that I grew up on oldies because of my mother. Thank you mom! Wow, I always gave credit to my musical ears from growing up attending underground rave parties and listening to the classics like Mozart, Chopin, Janis Joplin, Sade and Sinatra. After watching/hearing the show, I know for a fact something came full circle for me and I pay deep gratitude towards my mother for influencing me and gifting me the sound of oldies!

It was all there right in front of my face: The Supremes, The Temptations, and all the songs I used to listen to while growing up My Girl, My Guy (lol) and the remarkable inside scoop on their legendary stories…so clever, so sensational. Let’s talk about the best pipes and harmonies you will ever hear! It’s mind-blowing with an all-star cast. The decibels in my ears have been taken to a whole new level! So healing, so enriching.

Winner winner to the costume designer who put the gents in classic suits and the ladies in flawless body shaped dresses. OMG and it does not stop there!
Not only is it a laugh/cry of a great time but it’s so educational too. They touch on Stevie Wonder, his story, The Jackson Five, JFK, and Dr. Martin Luther King Junior to name a few.
Thank goodness for Barry Gordy and his creative but business like vision. BG certainly revolutionized the way we integrate with music and all humans.
I am so enthralled that I might just need to slip in one more time before the show closes in LA, but not to worry, I checked the schedule and it’s touring for the next year, so you will have moments to catch it! Also, if you want to send someone an amazing gift in another state, send him or her to see Motown The Musical. You and they will be so happy that you did! It’s a historical story you do not want to miss!

Get ready to be in spirit and inspired~

Grateful for My Mom’s Legacy this Mother’s Day

As both a mom and a daughter whose mother has passed away, Mother’s Day is always a bittersweet time for me. While I enjoy being celebrated by my son and husband, I miss my mother dearly. Each day of my life her legacy and influence live on through my parenting, family traditions, cooking, education and style. So many of our viewers reach out to me asking about the necklaces I wear on my show. What they might not know is that my mother is the inspiration behind the statement necklaces I wear each day.

I have to wear a robe, but I still like to be a jazzy judge! I inherited my love of jewelry and interesting statement necklaces from my mom. My late mother was very stylish in an understated, classy way, but she loved wearing beautiful, interesting neckpieces. A bold necklace is a great way to create a stylish focal point for any kind of outfit.

I carry on my mother’s flair for fashion by wearing some of her pieces and designing almost all of the others. And, almost every piece I have worn on the show is a one-of-a-kind creation. For me, the necklaces hold a special meaning and are more than just a fashionable piece of jewelry. My necklaces not only remind me of my mother, they are a symbol and reflection of the colorful, bold, unique woman she raised me to be. All of the words of encouragement and affirmation concerning my necklaces has inspired me to create a line of necklaces and other statement pieces.

I hope you enjoy your Mother’s Day! I’d love to hear how you celebrate your mom or keep her legacy alive limitlessly.​

The Musical Legacy of Wartime France

The Musical Legacy of Wartime France


For the three forces competing for political authority in France during World War II, music became the site of a cultural battle that reflected the war itself. German occupying authorities promoted German music at the expense of French, while the Vichy administration pursued projects of national renewal through culture. Meanwhile, Resistance networks gradually formed to combat German propaganda while eyeing Vichy’s efforts with suspicion. In The Musical Legacy of Wartime France, Leslie A. Sprout explores how each of these forces influenced the composition, performance, and reception of five well-known works: the secret Resistance songs of Francis Poulenc and those of Arthur Honegger; Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time, composed in a German prisoner of war camp; Maurice Durufle’s Requiem, one of sixty-five pieces commissioned by Vichy between 1940 and 1944; and Igor Stravinsky’s Danses concertantes, which was met at its 1945 Paris premiere with protests that prefigured the aesthetic debates of the early Cold War. Sprout examines not only how these pieces were created and disseminated during and just after the war, but also how and why we still associate these pieces with the stories we tell – in textbooks, program notes, liner notes, historical monographs, and biographies – about music, France, and World War II.

A Legacy of Faith

A Legacy of Faith


‘A Legacy of Faith’ is a compiled writing of the last few years of Linda’s life. There is a blend in this book of her journal entries during the time of ALS, Debbie’s observations, and a caregiver’s description involved in her daily care along with others who offered support to Linda while learning to cope with ALS. Linda’s trust in God and her belief in reward in Heaven is the one thing that made any real sense to her. Bible verses continually came to mind which gave comfort. Debbie chronicled Linda’s decline in health, with compassion, trying to depict her with her sense of humor despite grave obstacles. Linda’s faith was expressed in her words, ‘I don’t look into mirrors very often these days but when I do, the reflections has changed.There is, however, one thing that remains the same, my eyes.When I look in the mirror, I see the same eyes I saw when I was a terrified little girl looking in the mirror. I see the eternal me and there is no fear, there is total peace. I know who I am, I know where I will spend eternity and so can you.’ ‘A Legacy of Faith’ is a graphic description of the ravages of ALS and recounts the life changes that affected Linda’s entire family. Yet, despite her death, the story strikes a positive chord which the reader will not soon forget.
