It's Memorial Day, a time to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country.
We should all the take the time to stop and say thank you to those who've gone before us.
And let's not forget to say thanks to those that are still here.
This amazing video is from a year ago, but it remains poignant.
Runners in San Jose, California were participating in a charity race benefitting the military.
A 95-year-old veteran named Joe Bell set up a chair in front of his home, and sat in his old uniform tunic and cap to watch the racers pass.
And before long, the race was all about Joe, as the runners came up to him and shook his hand to thank him for his service.
The sight of a 95-year-old veteran cheering on runners in a military charity race in San Jose triggered a spontaneous show of patriotism that captured the nation's attention.Joe Bell was waving at the runners when suddenly he became the one being honored. One by one, participants ran over to Bell, shaking his hand and thanking him for his service.The race benefited the Pat Tillman Foundation, set up in honor of the fallen Army Ranger and San Jose native.Watch KTLA's video here: http://ktlane.ws/1kwcgo9
It was already sad to know that David Letterman on the Late Show has come to an end, but this is even worse. Less than 24 hours off the air, David Letterman's Late Show set pieces are already in dumpsters! Moving trucks showed up yesterday for Stephen Colbert's takeover. David Letterman's famous skyline backdrop, desk, and several chairs are already gone and the show's marquee is coming down next week. Hit the road jack!
Kelly Clarkson's nanny may lose her job if she doesn't keep her mouth shut! Not really, but this is funny because it annoys Kelly Clarkson. Turns out Kelly Clarkson's nanny is a big fan of 2003's From Justin to Kelly, her movie that flopped. Kelly Clarkson said, "I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, 'My roommate and I used to watch it all the time! I'm totally going to show your daughter From Justin to Kelly.'" To that Kelly Clarkson responded with, "I'm like, 'I will fire you.'" HAHA! If it were up to Kelly Clarkson, she would even burn every copy of From Justin to Kelly if she got the chance!
Hollywood ageism is still a thing and Maggie Gyllenhaal wants to prove it to all of us! She revealed that she recently lost out on a movie role because she was "too old" to play a 55-year-old man's love interest. Maggie Gyllenhaal is 37. She said, "There are things that are really disappointing about being an actress in Hollywood that surprise me all the time" Yup, this would be one of them. I want to know who turned her down! Maybe that's why Rebel Wilson lied about her age!
The View is still trying to fill Rosie O'Donnell's chair and now they have their sights set on Raven-Symone! She co-hosted on the show a couple of times and now because of it she's in talks to get a permanent set at the round-table with Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez, and Nicolle Wallace. Everyone thinks she's a good choice because Raven-Symone is smart but a little kooky. She also does her homework and prepares like no one else does for the show. I'm just not sure, what do you think? Good fit or bad fit?
Taylor Swift is never gonna stop! Her star-studded music video for "Bad Blood" is breaking records! After premiering Sunday night at the Billboard Music Awards, the video went on VEVO and it has officially broken the record for most views in a 24-hour period: 20.1 million views! Taylor Swift just beat out the previous record holder, Nicki Minaj, with her music video for "Anaconda" that had 19.6 million views back in August! Together, all of Taylor Swift's videos have hit nearly five billion total views. INSANE!
Just when I thought she had it all, Martha Stewart proves me wrong! She's come up with the fanciest cracker flavor in the grocery store. Martha Stewart has her own Triscuits! She has a toasted coconut and sea salt-flavored Triscuit that hit shelves early this month and it's going to stay around for a limited time. Martha Stewart settled on the coconut and seal salt flavor because she finds it addicting! She said, "It was my idea. I like salt and I like coconut. ... I thought that was a flavor of cracker that would be savory and sweet." Aw, I thought they'd be black and white striped triscuits! Joking.
Wow, you can hear the hurt! Vin Diesel is clearly still mourning the loss of his close friend Paul Walker. He posted a musical tribute on Facebook to honor Paul Walker who passed in a car accident in November 2013. In the clip, Vin Diesel is singing Tove Lo's "Habits (Stay High)" in front of a photo montage of himself and Paul Walker. He started by saying, "This one is for you brother." He also wrote on Facebook next to the post, "The ever continuing process of healing … all love." Vin Diesel also named his daughter Pauline, who he welcomed in March, in honor of Paul Walker.
The ever continuing process of healing...All love...
