Abusive anchorman Rob Morrison has quit his WCBS-TV job after a meeting with station bosses.
The abrupt resignation came three days after the veteran broadcaster’s arrest for choking his wife, Ashley — and then allegedly threatening to kill her — in a late-night fight in their Connecticut home, the New York Daily News reports.
“My family is my first and only priority right now and I have informed CBS management that I need to put all of my time and energy into making sure that I do what’s best for my wife and my son,” Morrison said in a statement.
“I very much appreciate the opportunity that CBS has given me and I thank them for accepting my decision.”
The couple is not the picture of happiness as they have led viewers to believe
Morrison’s resignation came one day after Connecticut court papers charged he turned homicidal while in custody, promising he “would kill” his wife Ashley Morrison once cops turned him loose.
The nasty Sunday night brawl erupted after the couple watched the romantic comedy Mystic Pizza, with the Stamford Advocate reporting that the fight was over Facebook photos.
“The argument that we had had was kind of over with. It was getting very late. The next thing you know there were cops at my door,” Morrison said. “I told them to get the hell out of my house.”
He apologized for being “absolutely belligerent” to the cops.
The Channel 2 anchor was accused of choking his wife at 1:30 a.m. Sunday and was booted from their Darien home Tuesday by a Connecticut judge.
They have only been dating since April, but things are getting increasingly serious between Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis– and fast!
According to Life & Style magazine, Kutcher thinks he has found his soul mate in Kunis.
Sources tell the mag that Ashton, who split with wife Demi Moore in November, “is totally into Mila,” and even referring to her as his spouse! “He’s calling her his ‘little wife,’ which is cute but kind of odd since he’s not divorced yet,” a friend tells Life & Style.
But while Mila, 29, has fallen head over heels for Ashton since the former co-stars began dating, she’s making it clear she’s not planning to sprint down the aisle with him. “I’m not sure about marriage,” she recently mused. “I see no need. I’ll be with somebody because I want to, not because a piece of paper tells me I have to.”
“Mila’s playing it cool with Ashton,” a friend of hers tells the magazine, on newsstands now. “She’s not pushing for a ring.”
The duo have been close pals since 1998, when they were cast in That ’70s Show, and seem giddy about how their friendship has blossomed into love. A witness says, “They seemed completely relaxed and happy with each other” during a lunch at LA’s festive Casa Vega on Aug. 12, where they fit right in with the lively crowd. “They laughed a lot,” a fellow diner tells Life & Style.
Since Monday, Terminator 3 star Nick Stahl has been reported as missing, seemingly vanishing into thin air.
His wife, Rose Stahl, has given an interview in recent days saying she feared the actor, who has battled drug and alcohol problems, might die from an overdose.
However, it appears that Nick is alive and well, and sent at email to his friends at 10 p.m Friday to quell any concerns about his wellbeing and to inform them he was entering into rehab.
His wife told People that she is “relieved” that he is okay but doesn’t believe he is entering into a treatment program.
“I’m skeptical that he really is in rehab,” she says.
One fundamental thing we must point out… the email wasn’t sent to Rose, but instead, Nick’s friends. She discovered it by accessing his email account, for which she has the log in details for.
She says the email offered no explanation as to why he disappeared on May 9, and did not say whether he was on Skid Row using drugs as she suspected.
The email does say that Nick was making arrangements to pick up his clothes from his and Rose’s home.
There’s no doubt that Nick has his problems, but perhaps there could also be trouble at home? What do you make of him emailing his friends not his wife? We would really like to hear your comments on this one….
It’s the show loved by some, loathed by others, and there have been more failed romances than successful ones.
Now Chris Harrison, who hosts The Bachelor, has seen is own personal relationship go down in flames like so many of the contestants on the reality show before him.
He and his wife of 18 years, Gwen, have announced their separation “after much heartfelt consideration,” the couple tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“Though we have made this incredibly difficult decision to separate, our love and mutual respect remain, and we look forward to sharing in the lives of our wonderful children,” they say in a joint statement Thursday.
The couple lives 35 miles from Hollywood with their kids Joshua, 9, and Taylor, 7. Harrison, 40, coaches both kids’ soccer teams, and is “an amazing father,” Gwen told PEOPLE in 2010. “He’s very loving and involved.”
He is the man who singlehandedly heaped disgrace upon the Secret Service, when after a night out on the town, he allegedly tried to pay escort Dania Londoño Suárez just $28 instead of the $800 fee.
Now, the NY Daily News reports, that shamed Secret Service agent Arthur Huntington is offloading his red brick home in Severna Park, Md., but he is not losing his wife, Jolie, who says she plans to stick by him through this disastrous mess.
She has told family members that she won’t abandon her husband of nearly two decades despite the embarrassment and hurt he has caused to her and those closest to them.
“Jolie has said she’s going to make the marriage work,” Pastor Jose Rodriguez, a Rochester, N.Y., minister whose son is married to the woman’s sister, told the newspaper.
Those who know Arthur, also paint him in an entirely different light than that of the man whose antics ignited a worldwide scandal, and they insist that his actions were out of character.
“He wouldn’t do that,” said a female relative who asked that her name not be used. “Not the Arthur that I know. He wouldn’t. They go to church every week.”
“It’s out of character — the Arthur I know, he’s very dedicated to the family, very loyal,” said Teresita Rodriguez, 65, who along with her husband Jose has known Huntington since he was a child.
Arthur and his wife, who were active in their local parish, Granite Baptist Church, have since gone into hiding in the wake of the scandal, with their two sons, aged 12 and 15.
“We hurt for them,” said Richard Lejeune, an assistant pastor. “We hope the best for them and that they are able to weather the storm.”
Meanwhile, the couple have also put their two-story red brick home in Severna Park, Md., on the market.
The colonial tri-level house, which is listed for $465,000, features a neatly-manicured front lawn and an American flag hanging from the front porch. It sits in a tidy neighborhood that is home to many other government employees, including members of the Secret Service and CIA.
Nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and U.S. military personnel were implicated in the humiliating scandal that erupted days before world leaders met in the sinful seaside city of Cartagena
The scandal has prompted the Secret Service to issue hard new regulations, including a ban on visiting with foreigners and a crackdown on heavy drinking.
