David Cassidy's daughter reveals what she learned from father’s last words

Days after “The Partridge Family’s” David Cassidy passed away from organ failure, his daughter Katie vowed to make the most out of time with her loved ones as she revealed her late father’s last words.

>> Read more trending news

“Words cant express the solace our family’s received from all the love & support during this trying time,” the actress tweeted on Saturday. “My father’s last words were ‘So much wasted time.’ This will be a daily reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute….thank you.”

The 30-year-old actress had a complicated relationship with her father for most of her life, having been raised by her mother and model Sherry Williams and her stepfather Richard Benedon.

“Because I didn’t raise her, I didn’t have to parent her,” David told PEOPLE in 2009. “I’m always here and totally nonjudgmental. To be able to go to someone I’m genetically linked to, tell them anything and know that they’re not going to judge me -- it’s unbelievable.”

“It’s nice when your dad can be your friend,” Katie echoed her father’s words at the time.

However, the pair drifted apart over the years, and were no longer on speaking terms as of February of this year.

“I wasn’t her father. I was her biological father but I didn’t raise her. She has a completely different life,” David explained. “[But] I’m proud of her. She’s very talented. It’s hard for me to even accept how old she is now.”

The star was hospitalized last weekend for liver and kidney failure. Following his tragic death on Tuesday, his family announced that sad news and thanked fans for their support via a touching statement:

“On behalf of the entire Cassidy family, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, our uncle, and our dear brother, David Cassidy. David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long. Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years.”

Cassidy is survived by his daughter Katie Cassidy; son Beau Cassidy; brothers Shaun, Patrick and Ryan; stepmother Shirley Jones; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Grammy-nominated artist 2 Chainz’s management agency, Street Execs, posted a video on its Facebook page on Thursday announcing the return of the house.

Crowds of people showed up to see and take pictures at the house.

It was painted back to its original white color in the summer after the lease ran out, but it appears it will soon make its return in holiday style.

It’s unclear how long the new attraction will be active.

A Georgia man touched by a restaurant employee’s kindness has shared the message with the world.

>> Read more trending news

Dallas Smith Jr., of Sylvester, Georgia, was at Huddle House restaurant in Douglas, Georgia, on Wednesday around lunchtime, when he saw a customer trying to eat his pancakes, with one hand.

Smith said the man who was dining with him moved his plate to reach out and help the customer, but then a cook stepped in.

“She was on the other side of the counter and she saw that he was trying to cut his pancakes and she said, ‘I’ll get it,’” Smith said.

Smith said the employee put down what she had and walked over to the table, which is when he had the thought to start recording a video with his phone.

“It was kind of a warm feeling in there anyway because everyone knows everybody,” Smith said. “It threw me so far off-guard when she did it. For me, it was just a blessing to see.”

Smith said he posted the video on Facebook to share what he had witnessed with his friends and family. Since then, nearly 3,000 people have shared it. 

“This day and time, when you see that, it gives you hope,” he said. “I’m a Christian, and it’s the closest thing to Jesus I’ve seen in a long time.”

Smith said a family dining beside him noted that the man is a veteran.

He said that he is glad people are seeing the humble action the employee took, adding that we should help one another no matter race or age. 

Vikings' Everson Griffen seeks help in naming newborn son

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen is seeking name suggestions for his newborn son.

>> Read more trending news

Griffen’s wife, Tiffany, gave birth to the couple’s third child on Thursday, and Griffen watched the boy’s birth on FaceTime from Ford Field. After the first of his two sacks in the Vikings’ 30-23 victory against Detroit Lions, Griffen pulled up his jersey to reveal a message to the fans and a national television audience.

“I just had a baby boy. What should we name him?”

“Seven pounds, 2 ounces, born right before the game, so I was doing my warm-up watching the birth on FaceTime,” Griffen told the Star Tribune after his 12th sack later in the game tied his career high for a season. “So (my) wife is healthy, baby is healthy, we don't know his name yet, but it's not about that. I'm happy to have a new addition -- three boys. I don't know what my wife is going to do. It’ll drive her crazy. But we're 9-2, and it feels good winning.”

The infant joins brothers Greyson and Ellis in the Griffen family, ESPN reported.

Name suggestions began immediately. Tight end Kyle Rudolph thought the name “Rudy Griffen” sounded like a future star. Running back Latavius Murray wondered if there would be another Latavius close to the Vikings, the Star Tribune reported. 

“Definitely not Mike,” coach Mike Zimmer joked. “Congratulations to him. It wasn’t expected to have the baby this morning. For him to have to be here, and do the things he did, he’s a team guy all the way.”

Griffen could face a penalty for the T-shirt message. The NFL fine for altering a uniform with a personal message is $6,076 for a first-time offense, ESPN reported.

Missionaries in Provo wore red and blue hairnets, sang songs and rang cowbells as they assembled more than 350,000 Thanksgiving meals to donate to the Utah Food Bank, The Deseret News reported.

>> Read more trending news

The ingredients to make the apple pie oats kits -- Scottish oats, puffed rice, dehydrated apple bits and nutmeg -- were contributed by the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and organizers from Orlando, Florida-based Feeding Children Everywhere.

There were 60 assembly tables set up at the Missionary Training Center to accommodate 1,500 volunteers, the News reported. Working in teams of 12, the missionaries sang holiday hymns and rang a cowbell each time a kit was sealed and ready for delivery.

Dave Green, CEO of Feeding Children Everywhere, told missionaries during a meeting before the service project, “Our mission as an organization is activating people for a hunger-free world.”

The completed meals were stacked up on pallets and will be picked up Monday by the Utah Food Bank, then distributed throughout the state by next week, the News reported.

Ginette Bott, chief development officer of the Utah Food Bank, said the work by the volunteers was gratifying.

“I think we all are able to be more grateful when we give to someone else,” Bott told the News. “I hope this will be a lasting memory for these [missionaries].”

Fellow teen idol Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees remembers David Cassidy

Few people knew the late David Cassidy like Monkees band member and former teen idol Mickey Dolenz.

>> Read more trending news

Dolenz told Billboard that he met Cassidy early on in their careers and kept in touch with him through the years. They even toured together with Peter Noone in 2013 in “The World’s Greatest Teen Idols” tour.

He told the publication after Cassidy’s death:

We just sort of immediately hit it off in the same way that Davy Jones and I hit it off early, and I think for the same reason. I’d been a child star. I remember Davy Jones from the very early days of the auditions before we were even cast. David Cassidy [had] been born and raised in the business, as had I. So yeah, there was a camaraderie. That happens a lot in any business, but in our business especially. You meet people that have run the gauntlet [and] been through the fire. So you do tend to identify and commiserate with people that have been through the same thing that you have.

Dolenz said that Cassidy always struggled with fame and the business he was raised in, wanting to branch out artistically.

“Like many others, I know he got frustrated in that he wanted to move on. He wanted to play rock 'n' roll. He wanted to play blues. And let’s face it: The hardcore fans and the people that came to see him, they obviously wanted to hear those hits,” Dolenz said.

He continued, “I knew, of course, that David had his demons. Everybody has had their demons in their lives, especially as you start getting older. I kind of wish, and I tweeted this recently, I kind of wish I’d been more help. But I don’t know what I could have done.”

Cassidy died in a Florida hospital surrounded by his family on Tuesday after being admitted days earlier with organ failure. He was 67 years old.

Following his death, many of his famous fans shared tributes to him on social media, and his nephew, Jack Cassidy, thanked fans for their support.

“Thank you all for the love and support your giving my uncle, my family, and me … The responses have been sincerely beautiful!” he tweeted.

On Wednesday night, the comedian and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” host shared some of his fan-submitted Thanksgiving fails that will make you thankful that your dinner came out much better!

Not even old grandpa got a pass when it came to some of these disgusting, yet hilarious, fails!

“My grandpa was making mashed potatoes when his dentures fell into them. He stared right at me and after he put them back in, said, ‘Don’t you tell a soul,'” one fan wrote.

Uncles also weren’t immune from embarrassment when a fan wrote, “My uncle got so drunk that he tried cutting the turkey with the handle.”

One fan shared one hilarious fail that came at their mother-in-law’s expense during Thanksgiving meal prep.

“One year, my mother-in-law was making gravy. She poured the gravy in the strainer and forgot to put a pan underneath, and it all went down the sink!” the writer tweeted. Well, hopefully the turkey wasn’t too dry after that!

Another shared an absolutely grotesque story of an undercooked turkey making its way to the dinner table.

“One year the turkey still had pink juice coming from it after cooking, but my dad said it was just ‘leg juice,’” one fan wrote in. “Everybody but me ended up with food poisoning.”

OMG, people! Use a meat thermometer!

Hopefully your Thanksgiving meal goes off without any fails (or family drama).

Eric Bolling remembers his late son on first Thanksgiving without him

Thanksgiving 2017 is no doubt a rather somber affair for political pundit and host Eric Bolling and his wife, Adrienne. What is normally a joyful occasion is, for them, the first Thanksgiving since the untimely passing of their son, Eric Chase Bolling Jr.

>> Read more trending news

“On this emotional first Thanksgiving without Eric Chase… Adrienne and I want you to know that we feel very thankful for the overwhelming, heartwarming support you’ve given us during this time,” Bolling, 54, tweeted on Thursday morning.

The former Fox News host’s only child was found dead Sept. 8 at the age of 19.

Bolling Jr. died shortly after his father was terminated from Fox News. Bolling Sr. was fired after an internal investigation concluded that he had acted inappropriately with several Fox News staffers and guests.

In October, Bolling Sr. took to Twitter to reveal how his young son passed away. A Colorado coroner has ruled the death of Bolling Jr. as an accidental drug overdose, with opioids as a contributing factor.

“Just received some tragic news from Coroner in Colorado. Eric Chase’s passing has been ruled an accidental overdose that included opioids,” he wrote.

Bolling Sr. thanked his followers for their support and called on the country to fight the national epidemic that is opioid usage.

Hours after Bolling Sr. took to social media to announce that his son died of a drug overdose, multiple media outlets began reporting on the contents of the autopsy.

According to TMZ and PEOPLE, the college student died of an accidental drug overdose, as Bolling Sr. said. The media outlets also reported that the younger Bolling had fentanyl, cocaine, marijuana and Xanax in his system when he died. Fentanyl is a deadly drug often found in lethal batches of heroin.

The autopsy report also stated that Bolling Jr.’s living quarters, where he died, showed that there was a likely history of drug abuse.

Arizona mother gives birth in SUV, drives herself to hospital with toddler in backseat

Mothers are known for being good at multitasking, but an Arizona woman took it to a whole new level.

When Shannon Geise, 31, woke up just after midnight on Nov. 7 to painful contractions and her water breaking, the mother of four told azcentral.com she thought she had time to make it to the hospital for the birth of her son.

The baby, already named Sebastian, had other ideas.

Geise was going to call for a ride, but as the contractions became more severe, she placed her toddler daughter Olivia in the SUV and began the drive to the hospital. Her other children were staying with their father, azcentral.com reported. 

While Olivia watched the "Angry Birds" movie in the backseat, Geise quickly came to the conclusion that she was going to have to deliver the baby in the vehicle. She delivered Sebastian and called 911. The operator told her to wait for an ambulance but Geise said it would be quicker for her to drive there, as she was just minutes away. So holding on to her newborn son with one arm and driving slowly and carefully with the other hand, Geise made her way to the hospital.

Geise told azcentral.com that she and baby Sebastian are doing fine and are at home with family.

Kate McClure was driving on I-95 in Philadelphia recently when her car ran out of gas. According to PhillyVoice.com, McClure got out of her car to walk to a gas station when she was approached by a homeless man, identified only as Johnny. Johnny told McClure to get back in her car and lock the door. He later returned to the vehicle with a can of gas. He had purchased the gas with what little money he had. 

McClure, who was in town to visit a friend, didn’t have anything to give to repay Johnny at the time, so she told him she would return. 

She kept her word.

According to a post online, McClure says she returned to visit Johnny, 34, at his spot by the side of the interstate with clothes, food and money. Each time, Johnny showed gratefulness and generosity.

“One day, I stopped to see him and had a few things in a bag to give him, one of which was a box of cereal bars so he could have something that he could carry around and eat,” McClure wrote. “He was very appreciative as usual and the first thing he said was, ‘Do you want one?’ Another time I dropped off (two) Wawa gift cards and a case of water. The first words that came out of his mouth were, ‘I can’t wait to show the guys’ -- there are (two) others he hangs out with, and they all take care of each other.”

McClure still felt compelled to do more for Johnny, so she created a GoFundMe account, hoping to raise $10,000 to help get Johnny a car, an apartment and some materials and amenities. 

In less than two weeks, McClure raised more than $318,000.

“With the money, I would like to get him first and last month’s rent at an apartment, a reliable vehicle and 4-6 months worth of expenses,” McClure wrote. “He is very interested in finding a job, and I believe that with a place to be able to clean up every night and get a good night’s rest, his life can get back to being normal. (I) truly believe that all Johnny needs is one little break.”

Johnny told PhillyVoice.com that he was once a licensed paramedic and also served in the Marine Corps. He said he moved to Philadelphia last year with plans to start a new job, but when things fell through, he became homeless. 

He says now he wants to get a job at the Amazon warehouse in Robbinsville, New Jersey, and hopes to one day become recertified as a paramedic.

“(This) changes my life,” he said.

“When I was a little boy and my big brother would come to visit, the first call of business would be a punishing pillow fight. During the battle, he would regale me with hysterical stories of our father, often culminating in his taking a giant leap off my top bunk,” Cassidy posted on Twitter, along with a black and white photo of the boys as children.

“I tried to catch him of course. I always tried to catch him. But I never could. Now, I will carry him, along with all of the funny/sad/extraordinary days we shared, none more filled with love than these last few at his side.”

In addition to being his step-mother, Shirley Jones played David Cassidy’s on-screen mother in the ‘70s musical sit-com “The Partridge Family.”

The relationship between Cassidy and his family was strained over the past years over his battle with alcoholism. Several months before his death, a video of Cassidy struggling to perform at a live show raised concerns about his well-being. Family and fans thought he had relapsed, instead he revealed he was suffering from dementia.

Regardless of past estrangements, his family rushed to his side after hearing of his hospitalization. A source told People magazine, Cassidy “was delighted to see them … There’s been total resolution within the family. They will always be there for him.”

David Cassidy passed away in a Florida hospital on Nov. 21. at the age of 67.

Michael Jordan replaces family’s signed jersey stolen from home after fire

A family received a surprise from NBA legend Michael Jordan after one of his signed jerseys was stolen from their home when it burned down in October.

Officials with the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office said the family was forced out of its Rock Creek, Wisconsin, home on Oct. 11 when it caught fire.

Authorities said a family member went to the house on Nov. 2, after the fire, and noticed two men behind it with a vehicle. The family member told officials that the men said they were looting the house and then left with a garbage can full of items. 

Authorities said they later arrested one of the men. 

According to officials, a signed No. 45 Michael Jordan jersey was among the items taken by the men and is believed to have been sold. 

The Star Tribune reported Monday that the family’s daughter, Kelsey Schiel, got the item signed by Jordan at his Chicago restaurant in 1995. The meetup was coordinated by Starlight Children's Foundation, an organization that supports hospitalized children and their families. At the time, Schiel was battling a life-threatening illness. Now 28, she has beaten the disease that she now likes to keep private.

“It’s devastating to know that someone stole such an important item,” Schiel said. “I really hope that whoever has it realizes its importance and turns it in. We won’t ask questions; it’s just really special to me.”

According to the Star Tribune, Jordan heard about the robbery and is having the jersey replaced.

“Michael was very sorry to hear about what happened to the Schiel family and was happy to send Kelsey a new signed jersey,” a representative for Jordan said.

Wendy Williams said she was groped on live TV, fans named names

Wendy Williams has her own story about workplace sexual harassment, but the talk show host is trying to keep mum about who it involves.

While discussing the recent slew of sexual assault allegations against veteran journalist, Charlie Rose, Williams, 53, revealed that her least favorite guest on her show was one who had groped her on live television, Inside Edition reported.

>> Read more trending news 

“My worst guest, I’m not gonna name, but I can tell you this -- it had to do with some groping and you all saw it, but didn’t say a word,” Williams  told viewers on her live show Tuesday. “And I felt it and I didn’t say a word. My staff saw it, and, you know, that guest will never be here anymore. He’s not relevant anymore anyway.” 

The television host said that when the individual went further than a quick embrace, she didn’t know how to react.

“He hugs me, but lays in my breast inappropriately and I didn’t know what to do because I’m brand new on TV, whereas now, I would definitely push somebody through a glass coffee table. I didn’t know what to do,” she said.

She continued, saying that guest looked up at her, saying, “Oh! You’re not Oprah!” 

“I’m two seconds away from saying his name but it’s not worth it. However, if I see you in the mall, I’ll tell you,” she told viewers.

Williams maintained that she wouldn’t be revealing who she was referring to, but viewers pulled out their own receipts. Photos of comedian Gilbert Gottfried resting his face on Williams’s chest during a 2011 appearance quickly spread. Wendy can be seen grimacing in the photo while Gottfried grabs her tightly around the waist.

Gottfried, 62, denied having any recollection of the incident when contacted by Inside Edition. When asked about being banned from her show, he said wasn’t aware if he had. 

As of now, Williams has neither confirmed nor denied that Gottfried was whom she referred to.
