Maya Angelou’s life story is coming to Broadway

The life and times of Maya Angelou is being chronicled in a one-woman show that will hopefully premiere on Broadway. Deadline reports that Angelou’s representative of 11 years, David Michael Rich, has partnered with her son Guy Johnson to bring the late poet’s story to the theater stage.

Phenomenal Woman: An Evening with Maya Angelou will feature “some private musings that have never before been made public” while also drawing inspiration from Angelou’s works.

“My mother lived an extraordinary life,” Johnson said in a statement. “She brought a sense of passion to living and invested herself wholly in it. What she wanted most was justice for all human beings, and the freedom to experience joy and laughter. We hope to capture her joie de vivre. We’re going to include some private anecdotes that will be a revelation to audiences. I’m pleased to be working with this team in bringing her story to life and can’t wait for the public to experience it.”

Rich and Johnson hope to bring the show to Broadway in 2021.

Angelou died in 2014 at the age of 86 after suffering from heart problems

Huge Venue Needed For Nipsy Hussle’s Funeral/Memorial Service

Nipsey Hussle‘s family is looking for an appropriate venue to hold funeral/memorial services for the slain rapper. The problem is that Hussle was a very, very popular person in the community and they’ll need a large venue to accommodate everyone.

We’re talking a venue large enough for 15,000 people or so. Fortunately in the Los Angeles area there a several to choose from, including The Forum, Staples Center, the Long Beach Arena, and not to mention USC’s, Long Beach State’s or UCLA’s basketball arenas.

Speaking of Staples, it might be in play (if available) to host the services because for one, it’s the home of the LA Lakers of whom Nipsey was a huge fan and also don’t forget that Michael Jackson’s memorial/funeral was held there in 2009.

Other options would be outside venues such as the Hollywood Bowl or even LA’s 2 professional soccer stadiums.

We would guess the other challenge would be getting one those venues on a date that’s not already committed.

As TMZ notes, “Nipsey was a man of the people, and we’re told his family wants to ensure everyone who wants to will be able to celebrate his life. Nip had an enormous impact on the community and his murder resonated in L.A. and way beyond … with memorials and candlelight vigils popping up across the globe.”

TMZ is also reporting that the family wants his funeral/memorial service to happen within the next two weeks.

As we reported, the beloved rapper/entrepreneur was shot and killed outside his store Sunday afternoon (03-30-19) in the Hyde Park section of L.A.

 

A Very Special Bank Account

Imagine you had a bank account that deposited $86,400 each morning. The account carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every dollar each day!

We all have such a bank. Its name is Time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever time you have failed to use wisely. It carries over no balance from day to day. It allows no overdraft so you can’t borrow against yourself or use more time than you have. Each day, the account starts fresh. Each night, it destroys an unused time. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, it’s your loss and you can’t appeal to get it back.

There is never any borrowing time. You can’t take a loan out on your time or against someone else’s. The time you have is the time you have and that is that. Time management is yours to decide how you spend the time, just as with money you decide how you spend the money. It is never the case of us not having enough time to do things, but the case of whether we want to do them and where they fall in our priorities

7 who accused Cosby of sex abuse settle defamation suits

Seven women who said Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them decades ago and then labeled them liars by denying it have settled defamation lawsuits against the imprisoned actor.

Court documents filed Friday in Springfield, Massachusetts, show a settlement has been reached since Cosby went to prison last fall in a separate Pennsylvania sex assault case. Cosby, 81, is serving a three- to 10-year prison sentence.

Cosby’s spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, said Cosby did not authorize the settlement reached between the women and American International Group Inc., and “vehemently denies the allegations.”

“Mr. Cosby did not settle any cases with anyone. He is not paying anything to anyone, and he is still pursuing his counterclaims. AIG decided to settle these cases, without the knowledge, permission and/or consent of Mr. Cosby,” Wyatt said in a statement.

Courts had ruled that AIG had to pay for Cosby to defend the defamation lawsuits as part of his coverage. Cosby had homeowners and other coverage through AIG.

The judge overseeing the defamation case in Massachusetts must still approve the settlement. The terms were not disclosed in the filings Friday. A message left with AIG’s corporate press office was not immediately returned late Friday.

The plaintiffs are among the dozens of women who have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct. They include Tamara Green, Barbara Bowman and Therese Serignese. Cosby, in a 2006 deposition, acknowledged giving Serignese quaaludes that made her “high” before a sexual encounter in Las Vegas in 1976, when she was 19. Some of that deposition testimony was aired in his criminal case.

“I don’t think he has much to contest the cases with, given his conviction,” said Loyola Law School professor Laurie Levenson. “I don’t know how much resources (he has left). It probably makes sense for both sides to resolve it.”

Joseph Cammarata, an attorney who represents the women, told The Associated Press on Friday that “each plaintiff is satisfied with the settlement.” He declined to comment further.

However, he warned in a status report also filed Friday that his clients would seek to depose Cosby and gather other documents and evidence if Cosby does not drop counterclaims that accuse the women of harming his reputation through their accusations. Wyatt said that Cosby still intends to pursue those claims.

Cosby’s wife, Camille, had been ordered to give a deposition in the defamation case in 2016, after a heated fight over her testimony.

Lawyers for the Cosbys tried to quash her subpoena to testify, saying she didn’t have any relevant information on the women’s claims and that any marital conversations she had with her husband of 50 years were confidential. The judge agreed that marital conversations were private, but the women’s lawyers noted she also served as his business manager throughout their long marriage.

The case had largely been put on hold amid the Pennsylvania criminal case, which involved charges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted a woman at his home in 2004. The first trial ended in a deadlock in 2017, but a second jury convicted Cosby last year.

Cosby is appealing the conviction. He is being held at a state prison in Montgomery County, outside of Philadelphia
