Following Head Injury, Tracy Morgan to Return to SNL

Tracy Morgan was a regular on Saturday Night Live for eight seasons from 1996-2003. In that time, he endeared himself to many who then followed him to his stint of fellow SNL alum, Tina Fey’s, show, 30 Rock. It was a huge shock, therefore, when the funnyman was in a serious car accident that almost cost him his life.

Crash in New Jersey

Following a performance in Dover, Delaware last June, Morgan and several other comedians and friends were traveling along the New Jersey Turnpike around 1am. Their limo was rear-ended by a tractor trailer operated by a driver (employed by Walmart) who, Sgt. Gregory Williams of New Jersey State Police told CNN, "failed to observe slow-moving traffic ahead. At the last minute, he swerved to try and avoid the Mercedes limo bus, but struck it from behind, forcing the limo to rotate and overturn." In all, six vehicles were involved in the crash but only the occupants of the limo were injured.

Robin Williams Suicide: One Year Later

It’s hard to believe that it has already been a year since Robin Williams left us. He touched so many hearts (and earned an Oscar) with his performances in movies such as Dead Poets Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning, Vietnam and Good Will Hunting. It was so a shock to many that someone so vibrant and energetic could be suffering so profoundly on the inside but, sadly, that is a common occurrence with depression.

Along with the mental illness, he struggled with addiction and a form of dementia before taking his life on August 11, 2014. It was a loss for the entertainment industry and his fans but, of course, it was a devastating blow to his family and loved ones.

His son Zak, 32, told People: "We try to focus on the joyful moments and memories. We're moving through the process of healing and recovering."  He added that he depends on the support of "wonderful family and friends" to cope with his grief. Zak also carries on his father’s legacy of giving back to the community by teaching financial literacy to inmates in San Quentin State Prison.

Woody Allen Discusses Paternal Relationship with Soon-Yi

One of the biggest names in Hollywood over the past 50 years has been Woody Allen. The prolific director’s personal life has been the subject of great scrutiny and debate yet, despite this, he rarely sits down for interviews. In fact, he has managed to maintain a reasonable amount of privacy in the face of great controversy.

A commonly discussed topic is his relationship with Soon-Yi Previn. He met his future bride while he was still married to her adoptive mother, Mia Farrow. In a rare moment, the 79-year-old opened up to NPR and said: “I started the relationship with her and I thought it would just be a fling. It wouldn’t be serious, but it had a life of its own. And I never thought it would be anything more. Then we started going together, then we started living together, and we were enjoying it. And the age difference didn’t seem to matter. It seemed to work in our favor, actually.”

Eminem Shares Battle with Addiction, Weight Gain

Eminem is one of the biggest artists in the world and he’s well known for overcoming a difficult upbringing in Detroit to become the celebrated rapper that he is today. Unfortunately, he developed a dependency on prescription painkillers including Vicodin, Ambien and Valium. Eventually, he suffered from an overdose which, ironically, may have saved his life. In a recent interview, he revealed how he found his way back to a healthier lifestyle.

Overdose and Weight Gain

While opening up to Men’s Journal, Eminem described a scenario that echoes the lives of people struggling with addiction in all parts of the world. He explained: "In 2009, I overdosed on pills, and I went into the hospital. I was close to 230 pounds. I'm not sure how I got so big, but I have ideas. The coating on the Vicodin and the Valium I'd been taking for years leaves a hole in your stomach, so to avoid a stomachache, I was constantly eating - and eating badly. When I got out of rehab, I needed to lose weight, but I also needed to figure out a way to function sober."

Ray Rice on Domestic Violence: “I’m a Rehabilitated Man”

The world was shocked over a year ago when a video of NFL player, Ray Rice, beating his then-fiancée, Janay Rice, surfaced. It sparked huge debates about domestic violence and whether sports leagues should discipline players in these situations. Rather than end their relationship, the couple moved forward and were married not long after the incident. The charges in that case were dismissed.

In a recent interview with Outside the Lines, Rice said: "I can understand some people probably never will forgive my actions but I think that every step that I took going forward right now—over time, I want to be able to rewrite the script, to tell my daughter that daddy made the worst decision of his life, but this is what I did going forward. To the survivors of domestic violence, I understand how real it is, and I don't want to ever take that for granted because this is a real issue in our society. My video put the light out there. If you have never seen what domestic violence looks like and you look at my video, I could understand why some people would never forgive me."
