Michael J. Fox: I Was 'Drinking Heavily' Following Parkinson's Diagnosis

Originally posted 09/26/2013 11:45AM

Michael J. Fox has inspired millions with his courageous optimism and self-deprecating humor while battling Parkinson's disease.

Yet the veteran comedic actor, 52, whose highly anticipated The Michael J. Fox Show debuts on NBC Thursday, says he suffered through a tremendously dark period shortly after his diagnosis in 1991 and turned to alcohol for comfort.

"My first reaction to it was to start drinking heavily," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM Radio show Wednesday. "I used to drink to party, but now I was drinking alone and ... every day."

Robin Quivers Reveals Her Cancer Battle

Loyal listeners tune in to Howard Stern's radio show knowing that anything can happen, but on Monday they got a surprise of a different kind – Stern's longtime sidekick Robin Quivers reveals that she's been fighting cancer for the past year.

In a frank discussion, Quivers, 61, explained why she's been absent from the studio (and broadcasting from home) since mid-2012. She revealed that she'd undergone surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment for a grapefruit-size tumor discovered in her uterus.

Quivers got emotional as she remembered the talk she had with Stern after getting the diagnosis – when doctors talked about "prolonging" her life, rather than "saving" it.

Heidi Klum's Got Talent – But Is It the Right Kind?

Heidi Klum Makes America's Got Talent Debut: How Was She?

Originally posted 06/05/2013 09:55AM

Heidi Klum has taken the first significant step in her TV career since Project Runway, the show that established her as a reality star: Tuesday night, she joined a revamped and expanded judges' panel on season 8 of NBC's America's Got Talent.

It was a sensible and safe step for her. Simply by being gorgeous and charming and not Piers Morgan, she proved herself ready for a bigger, busier network platform.

But I think now she should move on to something else. What is good for Heidi may not be good for America's Got Talent.

This season's final performances on America's Got Talent had a little bit of everything – music, dancing, comedy, art … and yes, acrobatic dogs. But only one winner will take home the $1 million prize and a headlining show in Las Vegas.

All six finalists gave generally strong performances Wednesday in their last shot to impress judges Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Howard Stern.

David Garibaldi and His CMYKs (a group of backup dancers/painting assistants) whipped up an impressive portrait of Albert Einstein, while the other artist in the finals, Joe Castillo, did sand portraits of the judges and host Nick Cannon.

America's Got Talent: Goth Opera Singer Andrew De Leon Wows Judges

Originally posted 06/06/2012 09:30AM



Talk about unexpected!

When Andrew De Leon walked out onto the stage in Austin, Texas, for his America's Got Talent audition Tuesday, his goth appearance – long black hair, dark eye makeup, Marilyn Manson-esque contacts and black clothes – initially drew smirks from the judges.

"Growing up, I was alienated because I was never interested in athletics or what everybody else in my family was interested in," a visibly nervous De Leon, 19, told host Nick Cannon, who addressed him as "Criss Angel" during an interview before the audition. "Singing was always an escape. It was always a comfort zone."

And he has a right to be comfortable with it. When De Leon opened his mouth to offer a note-perfect opera performance, the judges went from being skeptical to blown away. And the audience, which included De Leon's parents, roared.
