Cast Of Broadway’s ‘Aladdin’ Performs Tribute To Robin Williams [Video]

Robin Williams brought so many fantastically funny, inspiring, and downright quirky characters to life. But a favorite among many is that of Genie from Disney's Aladdin.

On Tuesday night, the cast of the Broadway version of Aladdin led the audience in a sing-along of the song "Friend Like Me." And now there's something in my eye. Is it dusty in here?

Robin Williams’ Daughter Zelda Leaves Social Media After Receiving Abuse Over Her Father’s Death

Following the announcement of his death, Robin Williams' daughter, Zelda, tweeted a passage from The Little Prince.

Her tweet was shared across social media as people attempted to wrap their heads around the loss of a man that had been a part of so many beloved memories and movies. And while most of the reaction to Williams' death has been shock, but also an outpouring of love (with many people donating to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in his honor), there were some who took this as an opportunity to spew hate.

A Little About Robin Williams And A Lot Of Deeper Discussions About Mental Health

 

The death of Robin Williams rocked us all on Monday night. He was a beloved actor, played some of our favorite characters ever in some of our favorite movies ever, and now he's dead. He's dead, not from natural causes, but from suicide. Williams had long battled the illnesses (that many of us refer to as "demons) addiction and depression, but because he was the funny man, the one that always made us smile and laugh, we assumed that all would be well. Until it wasn't.

I'm not here to preach, I'm not here to surmise or pretend that I know what Mr. Williams was going through in his final moments. I'm here to say that mental illness is something that needs to be addressed in our country. A country where those suffering from mental illnesses are cast off as being "weird", "unstable", "crazy", or "different". We all do it, even if we don't mean to. Mental illness can affect anyone. Even our heroes.

Pugs Remake ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ [Video]

Did you happen to catch Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie this weekend? It grossed nearly $65 million this weekend, and I'm kind of sad that I haven't had the chance to see it yet. Luckily, I have at least seen this amazing pug version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze.

Tim Allen & Ginuwine Mashup – Tim The Toolman Taylor Meets ‘Pony’ [Video]

One of my favorite shows back when I was a kid was "Home Improvement". I wanted to date the two older Taylor boys, I wished that I had a neighbor who only ever showed his eyes, and my dad was already a builder, so really he just needed his own TV show. Sadly, none of those things happened.

One of the most memorable parts of the show (outside of JTT's hotness) was Tim Allen's (Tim Taylor in the show) weird grunting he would do when he was doing manly things. Well, now I'm glad he did it because someone took those grunts and added them into Ginuwine's hit song from around the same time, "Pony".

Your Photos With (Sort Of) Katy Perry [Photos]

Last night Katy Perry brought her Prismatic World Tour to Van Andel Arena here in Downtown Grand Rapids. Thousands of people came out for the sold out show, and we decided that those folks would probably like to have their picture taken with Katy Perry.

As it turns out, it's not so easy to get superstars to come out and just take photos with people for hours before they perform, so we had to improvise. We took (sort of) Katy Perry (a cardboard cutout of her) out to Van Andel Arena so people could have their photo op. Check out the pictures below!

Real Talk With Wendy – ‘No Means No’ [Video]

I normally don't rant or rave about important issues on my show or in my blogs, but I had a conversation with someone the other day and it's been nagging at me ever since.

Let me set up the scenario for you - I was talking to someone the other day about he huge party that happened in Mecosta County last weekend. There were a lot of problems that stemmed from it including arrests, alcohol and drug overdoses, and a sexual assault. When I brought up the sexual assault, I was surprised at the reaction that I received from one of the men I was speaking with.
