Chuck Barris, whose game show empire included “The Dating Game,” ”The Newlywed Game” and that infamous factory of cheese, “The Gong Show,” died at 87.

Barris died of natural causes Tuesday afternoon at his home in Palisades, New York, according to publicist Paul Shefrin.

Decades before shows such as “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent” came along, Barris put everyday people who did not mind exposing their vulnerabilities or answering embarrassing questions before the cameras.

Joni Sledge, a founding member of the vocal group Sister Sledge, was found dead Friday in her home in Phoenix, publicist Biff Warren told CNN on Saturday. She was 60 years old.

The Sledge family was shocked by her death as she had not been ill, Warren said. The cause of death was unknown.
The group of sisters recorded the dance anthem “We Are Family” in 1979. Other hits were “He’s the Greatest Dancer” and “My Guy.”
 
“Yesterday, numbness fell upon our family. We are saddened to inform you that our dear sister, mother, aunt, niece and cousin, Joni passed away yesterday. Please pray for us as we weep for this loss. We do know that she is now eternally with Our Lord,” the band said Saturday in a statement posted on their website and Facebook page.

In 2009, an unknown 47-year-old named Susan Boyle shocked the world with her breakout performance on Britain’s Got Talent. With a few short months, she had become a viral sensation, performed for President Obama, the Queen, and the Pope, and earned over $7 million. Recently, though, she seems to have completely disappeared. Here’s a look at the real reason we don’t hear about Susan Boyle anymore…

11 Times The Oscars Honored White Actors For Playing People Of Color

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has made strides to become more diverse in recent years, but there’s a long road ahead to make up for the organization’s long legacy of exclusion.

Throughout its 90-year history, the Academy has not only failed to recognize the talent of many actors and actresses of color but awarded whitewashed roles in the industry.

Hollywood has consistently given diverse roles to white actors over the years; in fact, quite recently when Tilda Swinton was cast in 2016’s “Doctor Strange” as the Ancient One, a character who is Tibetan in the Marvel comics. And The Oscars haven’t helped alleviate this long-standing issue by rewarding this kind of whitewashing. 

Several notable white actors have been nominated for an Oscar for portraying people of color through the years. Many of them have actually won.

#Envelopegate Is a Giant Headache for Accounting Firm PwC

As accounting crises go, it’s hardly the Enron scandal that brought down Arthur Andersen, but PricewaterhouseCoopers’ big “oops” moment at the Oscars could imperil its standing with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, branding experts say.

“This, fundamentally, isn’t that difficult a task. You just had to get the right name in the right envelope and hand it to the right person,” said Tim Calkins, a clinical professor of marketing at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.

 The Academy released a statement Monday night apologizing for the gaffe that saw Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway incorrectly award “La La Land” the Best Picture award — instead of “Moonlight.”

The Academy said it had been investigating the mistake and would “determine what actions are appropriate going forward.”
