Michelle Williams and Phil Elverum: Married!

Big news from one of the most talented actresses working today!

Michelle Williams covers the new issue of Vanity Fair, and inside the mag, she confirms that she’s now married to indie musician Phil Elverum.

Michelle Williams-Phil Elverum

In the most candid interview of her career, Williams gushed about her new husband and revealed the impetus behind her decision to finally open up about her personal life:

“Obviously I’ve never once in my life talked about a relationship,” she said.

“But Phil isn’t anyone else. And that’s worth something.

“Ultimately the way he loves me is the way I want to live my life on the whole. I work to be free inside of the moment. I parent to let Matilda feel free to be herself, and I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free.”

Williams has a daughter, 12-year-old Matilda, with the late Heath Ledger, who passed away in 2008.

“I never gave up on love. I always say to Matilda, ‘Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes,’” she tells Vanity Fair. 

Sadly, Elverum is no stranger to tragedy himself.

In 2016, the singer’s first wife, musical artist Geneviève Castrée, passed away from pancreatic cancer shortly after giving birth to the couple’s only daughter.

As for her decision to discuss her personal life after so many years of keeping a low profile, Williams says she felt compelled to speak out after realizing that her story might serve as a source of hope or inspiration for others who have experienced profound loss:

“I don’t really want to talk about any of it,” she says. 

“But there’s that tease, that lure, that’s like, ‘What if this helps somebody?

“What if somebody who has always journeyed in this way, who has struggled as much as I struggled, and looked as much as I looked, finds something that helps them?’”

Williams adds:

“Don’t settle. Don’t settle for something that feels like a prison, or is hard, or hurts you,” she says. “If it doesn’t feel like love, it’s not love.”

We wish Michelle and Phil all the best.

If anyone deserves happiness and companionship, it’s these two.

Punxsutawney Phil: Groundhog Day Soothsayer Set to Nail 2017 Forecast … Maybe

Punxsutawney Phil, the prognosticator to end all prognosticators, is getting hyped as s–t to make his annual Groundhog Day prediction.

What will he tell us early Friday morning?

The man, the myth, the Rust Belt legend without whom Groundhog Day would not be a thing is just hours away from doing HIS thing:

Making his annual prediction at daybreak LIVE from the western reaches of Keystone State, to lay out how 2018 will shake out weather-wise.

Will there be a shadow sighting, thus signaling six more weeks of winter? Or no shadow, and therefore, an early spring on the horizon?

Only Punxsutawney Phil knows for sure.

February 2, of course, is when this affable, rotund mound of profound knowledge emerges from Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa.

He either sees his shadow or he doesn’t. It’s as simple as that, yet the stakes at the midway point of winter (exactly!) could not be higher.

A hell of a lot is riding on this s–t, given that if there is a shadow sighting, we’re looking at six more weeks of bitter cold and icy precipitation.

No shadow? Then it’s early spring, people!

Awesome as that sounds (and increasingly likely, if you buy into the whole Chinese climate change hoax), we wouldn’t wager on this.

Historically, the odds just aren’t that great.

In 120 years, Punxsutawney Phil has predicted an “early spring” a sparing 18 times, not a shock since he lives in the Northeast U.S.

Not to mention, one of those times was 2013, when record snowfall totals proceeded to pound much of the U.S. not even a week later.

On the flip side, he’s been on top of this s–t since.

Following the aforementioned debacle, which even led to a lawsuit by one Ohio county, he came back with back-to-back shadow sightings. 

Both preceded extremely wintry weather in 2014-15. In 2016, Phil did not see his shadow and North America saw its warmest winter ever.

Last year, he again saw his shadow and winter roared on with a vengeance as predicted. Suffice it to say, P-squared is back, b-tches.

Hopefully, Punxsy decides to turn in early and get some rest tonight, because we need him to bring his A-game tomorrow morning.

Happy Groundhog Day!

The current forecast for Friday a.m. in the Weather Capitol of the World is mostly cloudy and a chilly 14 degrees, for what that’s worth.

How it plays out is anyone’s guess, so just sit back, think about your favorite lines from Groundhog Day the movie and bask in the glory.

Early spring or not, this quintessentially American holiday is a great chance to get outside, have fun and enjoy the spectacle of winter.

Come on, it’s the second day of February, probably the most dismal point in the entire calendar year. We all need this right now.

And for that, we thank Phil.

Dr. Phil Show Denies Allegations of Providing Drugs, Alcohol

In a report that stunned even Dr. Phil’s fiercest critics, Dr. Phil is accused of providing alcohol and drugs to addicts who appear on his show.

Dr. Phil McGraw, the person, has yet to respond to these serious accusations. Dr. Phil, the television show, however, has spoken out.

And they’re denying it, saying that the accusations come from disgruntled people, and essentially stating that addicts are liars. Uh-oh.

Dr. Phil’s show purportedly helps people who are suffering. People who’ve survived horrifying trauma and are plagued with mental illness. People who are being scammed. People who struggle with addiction.

No one’s disputing that some of the guests on this show are helped by the show and by the programs that they then enter.

But what does Dr. Phil do aside from make Danielle Bregoli famous and let audiences gawk at people living or reliving the worst moments of their lives as they’re humiliated on television?

According to some pretty damning accusations reported by STAT and The Boston Globe, Dr. Phil’s producers have their finger on the scale — helping guests obtain drugs or straight-up giving them to them.

Remember Todd Herzog from Survivor: China? In 2013, he had to be carried onto the set to talk to Dr. Phil.

At the time, Phil McGraw famously said that Herzog’s struggle with alcoholism was endangering his life. And if a guy can’t stop drinking long enough to do a talk show, that sounds accurate.

But Todd Herzog tells STAT and The Boston Globe that he was sober when he arrived to do the show … only to find a bottle of vodka waiting in his room.

Unable to resist the temptation, he drank from it. And he says that a producer also gave him a Xanax (don’t mix those, folks). 

And that goes on top of accusations from multiple sources, alleging that Dr. Phil producers and staff openly enabled and even assisted guests who struggled with addiction in using and even procuring drugs.

Dr. Martin Greenberg serves as Dr. Phil‘s director of professional affairs.

He described these new claims as “absolutely, unequivocally untrue.”

Specifically responding to Herzog’s accusation, he said: “We do not do that with this guest or any other”

That’s the sort of denial that you expect from any accusation (true or not), and is fairly bland.

It’s what Dr. Greenberg later said that’s really troubling.

“Addicts are notorious for lying, deflecting, and trivializing,” he declared.

Dr. Greenberg works on a show that’s supposed to help people struggling with problems, but the minute that he feels back into a corner, he defends the show by suggesting that addicts are dirty liars and can’t be trusted?

That’s what it sounds like.

“But, if they are at risk when they arrive, then they were at risk before they arrived.”

Meaning, what … that anything that might happen on the show can’t possibly make things worse for them?

“The only change is they are one step closer to getting help, typically help they could not have even come close to affording.”

Oh boy.

Also, it appears that Greenberg has been changing his stance.

When first asked about any medical supervision for Todd Herzog, Greenberg replied: “No, of course not, it’s a television show.”

He then seemed to radically change his tune, announcing that Herzog had been “medically supervised the entire time.”

And Greenberg made yet another statement, we suppose in an effort to clarify things.

“We mean 100% of guests agreeing to treatment. It does not mean that a guest is being monitored 100% of the time.”

We were initially surprised that Phil McGraw himself wasn’t the first to react to these accusations.

Now, some can’t help but wonder if he — or someone else who works on the show — decided to let Greenberg be the spokesperson and then take the fall for what seems to be an ever-changing story.
