Jennifer Grey says Johnny Depp was ‘so beautiful it was inhuman’




May 14, 2022 | 3:14pm

“Dirty Dancing” star Jennifer Grey, who was engaged to Johnny Depp for nine months in the 1980s, says he was more than easy on the eyes back then.

“You have to understand, Johnny Depp, 1989 Johnny Depp, so beautiful, you’ve never seen a more beautiful … it’s almost inhuman,” Grey told TV host Drew Barrymore on her show Thursday.

Grey also told Barrymore that she was engaged to Depp and Matthew Broderick at different times during the same month in 1988. After she and Broderick broke it off, Grey met Depp through her agent and they got engaged two weeks after they started dating.

“It was really a sign that there was trouble afoot on my part,” Grey told Barrymore about being engaged to two men in the same month. “I just thought it was God rescuing me from one bad situation and just lovingly plopping me into a Johnny Depp souffle.”

Grey included an entry from a journal she kept shortly after meeting Depp in new memoir, “Out of the Corner.”

“On August 12, I wrote in my journal, ‘I’m in love, pretty sure for the first time in my life … He’s kind, funny, smart, moral, thoughtful, respectful,’” she wrote.

The couple had a dog named Lulu. “She was our practice baby and someone to keep me company when Johnny was out of town,” she wrote.

But according to Grey, the relationship was short-lived in part because of Depp’s behavior

“He’d started missing his flights home to LA having overslept or, when he did come home, he’d be crazy jealous and paranoid about what I’d been up to while he was gone,” she wrote.

In the book, she said she ended the engagement with a note she left in Depp’s hotel room one day after he left for a meeting one morning and failed to come back or try to contact her. 

Depp is currently embroiled in a vicious defamation suit against his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, who he sued in 2019 over a Washington Post op-ed she wrote about being a victim of sexual violence.

Though Heard did not mention her ex-husband by name, the column was published after she obtained a restraining order against Depp over alleged abuse in 2016. The actor has denied the allegations.

Here’s Proof That Drake’s 4-Year-Old Son Adonis Is a Future LeBron James




See Drake’s Son’s Cute Reaction to LeBron James Playing Ball

Ready for the big leagues. 

Drake may be an avid basketball fan—and global ambassador for the Toronto Raptors since 2013—but it’s his son Adonis who may be following in the footsteps of an NBA great.

On May 18, the “Hotline Bling” singer posted an adorable video on Instagram of the 4-year-old showing off his skills on the basketball court inside his Toronto mansion. In the clip, Adonis rocks LeBron James No. 23 Los Angeles Lakers jersey as he runs a number of drills.

But Adonis doesn’t just look the part. After shooting a basket, he patted his chest a couple of times, just like LeBron has famously done throughout his career. The tot also tugged on his jersey at the shoulders throughout the video, another idiosyncrasy of the four-time NBA champion.

Drake, 35, captioned the video, “Where is he getting the mannerisms from,” before tagged LeBron and adding a laughing emoji.

The athlete reposted the video on his Instagram Story with the caption, “My nephew really love the game!!”

Adonis has been a LeBron fan for quite some time now. Last summer, Drake shared a hilarious clip of Adonis watching some of LeBron’s career highlights on his Instagram Sorry. In the video, Adonis appears totally in awe of the legendary baller, keeping his eyes glued to the screen and dropping his jaw before letting out an enthusiastic “Oh my dod!” at the end. His dad is heard chuckling at his son’s cute reaction in the background.

LeBron again commended his “nephew” in the comments, adding, “[locked] the hell in!! Yessir!!”

Stranger Things Cast Warns That Season 4 Is Too “Disturbing” for Young Viewers: Everything We Know




Stranger Things Season 4: “Kids Will Have Nightmares”

It sounds like the Upside Down was the least of our worries.

In anticipation of the Stranger Things season four premiere on May 27, the stars of the Netflix sci-fi hit told E! News that viewers—especially young ones!—have no idea what awaits them. 

“I thought they’d have to tone it down,” Joseph Quinn, who plays Eddie, told E! News. “I didn’t think they would commit to how gruesome it was on the page. But clearly they don’t care about young kids at all.”

Won’t they think of the children?! Or, you know, adults who get easily scared?!

“Kids will be scared. Kids will have nightmares,” Joe Keery, who plays Steve, agreed. “If I was a kid and I watching this, it would be disturbing.”

Alright, now we’re just terrified. And we thought finding Barb’s body in season was scary!

Caleb McLaughlin, who has been around since the beginning as Lucas, echoed the sentiment. “When I watched this season, I was like ‘Wow, I don’t think I would want my nephew to watch this,'” Caleb said. “It’s very gory. It’s a lot. It’s really intense. We really took it up a notch.”

We’re happy to hear that Caleb is a stand-up uncle, but it’s not calming our nerves!

Charlie Heaton, who plays Jonathan, told us that he’s ready for parents to complain that “my kids couldn’t sleep for weeks” after watching season four. 

When it comes to specifics about what exactly makes the season so frightening, Maya Hawke, who plays Robin, said “the bone breaking is really not my favorite thing to watch.”

We need to sit down.


The first episodes of Stranger Things season four arrive on Netflix May 27, with the final episodes of the season dropping on July 1.

For more on what we know about season four, keep reading:


Heading Out of Hawkins

Stranger Things was renewed for season four in September 2019. And, thanks to a captivating teaser on Twitter, it was clear that the new season would venture outside the Indiana town. The caption read: “we’re not in hawkins anymore.”

Warner Bros.

You’ve Got…Stranger Things

All the way back in October 2019, the Stranger Things writers’ Twitter account introduced Video Store Fridays, a list of movies which, according to the post, “relate in some way or another to season four.”

The first films listed? The Peanut Butter Solution, The Fisher King, Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, You’ve Got Mail and Ordinary People.

The writers kept this up for about six months, listing everything from Hellraiser 2 to Billy Madison and more.


Episode One

In November 2019, it was teased that the first episode of season four is titled, “Chapter One: the Hellfire Club.” What exactly is the Hellfire club? We have some theories, but we guess we’ll have to wait and see.


Hopper’s Fate Revealed

For those who may need a refresher, it was unclear at the end of Stranger Things season three whether David Harbour‘s character Jim Hopper was still alive. By February 2020, Netflix released a teaser that showed a bald Hopper imprisoned in Russia.


An “Epic” Season Awaits

On what fans can expect from season four, David Harbour told Deadline that “it’s very epic and very big in a Stranger Things way.” The leading man teased monsters, horror, scares and “great Indiana Jones-type action.”

Additionally, fans can expect more of Hopper’s backstory.

An Expanding Ensemble Cast

Just when we thought the Stranger Things cast couldn’t get more impressive, Netflix announced eight additional cast members in November 2020, including Eduardo Franco, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Joseph Quinn, Tom Wlaschiha, Nikola Djuricko and Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund.

Eleven’s Origin Story

In May 2021, a new teaser indicated that the origin story of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) will be explored more. At the start of the clip, a number of youngsters with closely cropped hair are seen playing with educational toys. Later, Dr. Martin Brenner, a.k.a. “Papa” (Matthew Modine), appears to be seen from the back as he walks in and says in a voiceover, “Good morning, children.”

As Brenner continues to interact with the children, heavy breathing is heard as a camera pans to a door with an 11 on it. The clip comes to an end with the ominous doctor asking, “Eleven, are you listening?”

The New Faces of Hawkins High

Four new faces joined the Stranger Things cast in June 2021, including Amybeth McNulty as Vickie, a cool, fast-talking band nerd; Myles Truitt as Patrick, a basketball star at Hawkins; Grace Van Dien as another popular student, named Chrissy; and Regina Ting Chen as Ms. Kelly, a popular guidance counselor who cares deeply for her students.


A 2022 Return

In August 2021, Netflix teased what’s to come for the new season, including its return year. “See y’all in the upside down,” Netflix noted in an Instagram caption. “Stranger Things returns in 2022.”

It was later announced that the season would be broken up into two volumes, with the first premiering on May 27.


Welcome to Creel House

In a teaser from Sept. 2021, a new spooky locale was introduced: Creel House. The footage indicated that the seemingly haunted home has a dark connection to the Upside Down, and that Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Steve (Joe Keery), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and more are on the case.


Spring Break from Hell

On Stranger Things Day in 2021, Netflix revealed that Stranger Things season four will follow Eleven and the Byers family in their new town in California. Before fans of Eleven and Mike panic, it seems the couple will reunite over spring break. In typical Stranger Things fashion, the trip promises plenty of chaos.

Season four takes viewers to Russia, meaning viewers may get answers about the origins of the Upside Down and other burning questions. This also might be where Hopper has been held after he sacrificed himself.

The End

The Duffer Brothers confirmed season five will be Stranger Things‘ last in the above letter. “Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things,” they wrote in part. “At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four, but—as you’ll soon see for yourselves—we are now hurtling toward our finale.”

That being said, a billboard promoting season four also teased that “every ending has a beginning,” so maybe there’s a spinoff in the works.



Vecna, named after a Dungeons & Dragons character, is the ominous villain in season four. In the season’s trailer, Vecna says “you’ve broken everything, your suffering is almost at an end.”

The monster is made even more frightening due to the fact that Eleven is powerless to help.

“Part of the drive and tension of this season is that we have this big new evil emerge in Hawkins, and for the first time ever, Eleven is not there,” co-creator Ross Duffer told Entertainment Weekly. “Not only is she separated by distance, but at the end of season three, she’s lost her powers. So even when she learns about what has happened in Hawkins, she is unable to help them in the same way she has before.”

Vecna also comes with his own army of deadly bats. Yes, deadly bats. 

You’ve been warned.

One Life to Live Actress Marnie Schulenburg Dead at 37 After Cancer Battle




In Memoriam: Fallen Stars of 2022

Marnie Schulenburg has died after a two-year battle with stage four metastatic breast cancer.

The soap opera actress—known for her roles as Jo Sullivan in the One Life to Live reboot and Alison Stewart in As the World Turns—passed away on May 17 at age 37, her rep Kyle Luker confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter

She’s survived by her husband Zack Robidas—who acts in Succession and Sorry for Your Loss—and their 2-year-old daughter Coda. Marnie was diagnosed with cancer five moths after giving birth to Coda in December 2019, according to THR

The late actress last posted to Instagram on Mother’s Day, sharing that she was able to celebrate the holiday at home after being released from the hospital on May 6. The post showed Marnie playing in the park with her daughter and mother by her side, as well as a photo of herself reading to Coda in bed.

“It’s not my ideal to be a 38 year old Mom who needs an oxygen tank to survive right now,” wrote Marnie, who would have turned 38 on May 21. “I want to be strong and beautiful for her. I want to show her how to move throughout this world with compassion, strength, vivacity, humor and joy like my Mother showed me.”

She explained that while she was in the middle of a two-year battle with cancer, she was realized the “best thing you can do for you child is make them feel loved, safe and supported like my mother did for me.”

“I know that me being here for her is the best gift I can give her but right now it feels like settling since she’s getting a half-life version of myself,” Marnie continued. “My mother showed up 100% all day everyday for me growing up or at least it seemed that way. I want to give Coda the same but I must be kind to myself and remember that nothing is permanent.”

Before her tragic death, the former gymnast also held roles on Elementary, Tainted Dreams, City on a Hill, Royal Pains and Blue Bloods. In addition to an actor and mother, she described herself as the “partner to best the man ever” and the “owner of evil cat.”
