Jamie-Lynn Sigler kept her multiple sclerosis secret for 15 years

“Sopranos” and “Entourage” star Jamie-Lynn Sigler has been keeping a secret for 15 years: She has multiple sclerosis. The 34-year-old actress revealed her MS diagnosis to People magazine, which also featured photos from her wedding last weekend to Cutter Dykstra, who plays for the Washington Nationals’ minor league team. Sigler was diagnosed around age 20, but hid her illness while starring as Meadow Soprano (Tony Soprano’s daughter) on HBO’s “The Sopranos”; the drama series ran from 1999 through 2007. “Sometimes all I needed was like five or 10 minutes to sit and recharge but I wouldn’t ask, because I didn’t want them to be suspicious,” Sigler said.

Amy Schumer Responds To Joke Theft Accusations

There are lots of explanations for why the jokes are similar. And they are, have no doubt, very similar. For reference: here’s Amy’s “Slap Chef” sketch, and here’s Kathleen Madigan’s bit on the same general topic. Stealing jokes is a major accusation for a comedian to make, and also distressingly common. Anyone who’s made a joke and then heard another kid repeat it for huge laughs knows the feeling. Now picture that literally being your career. Not fun. (This Key & Peele sketch does a pretty great job with the topic.)

Paramount pulls Terminator Genisys sequel off release schedule

The next film in the Terminator franchise has been taken off Paramount’s release calendar, the studio confirmed Wednesday.  Terminator 2 had been scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 19, 2017, but Paramount has now set Dwayne Johnson’s Baywatch film on that release date. The most recent Terminator film, Terminator: Genisys, debuted last summer and went on to make a relatively weak $89.8 million at the box office over its 11-week run (for context, 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day was that year’s top-grossing film with a domestic total of $204.8 million). It didn’t fare too well with critics, either: The movie has a 25 percent onRotten Tomatoes.
