Michael J Fox in Recovery After Spinal Surgery

Michael J Fox in Recovery After Spinal Surgery
Michael J. Fox has recently undergone spinal surgery and is currently recovering, according to the actor’s spokesperson.

Fox, who currently has a recurring guest arc on ABC’s “Designated Survivor,” “recently underwent spinal surgery unrelated to his Parkinson’s,” his rep said in a statement. “He is recovering, feeling great, and looking forward to getting back on the golf course this summer.”

The reason for the surgery was not made public.

Fox was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative nervous system disorder, in 1991. In a recent interview, the actor said he was told he’d only be able to continue acting for up to 10 years.

“It was scary,” he said. “I was 29 years old and so it was the last thing I expected to hear. I thought I’d hurt my shoulder doing some stunt because I had a twitch in my pinkie. And the doctor said ‘You have Parkinson’s disease.’ He said, ‘The good news is that you have 10 years of work left.'”

Since then, Fox has continued to work for more than two decades, with recent roles on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The Good Wife” and his own 2013 NBC sitcom “The Michael J. Fox Show.”

Bill Cosby Retrial: Comedian’s Legal Team Struggles to Produce Key Witness

Bill Cosby Retrial: Comedian’s Legal Team Struggles to Produce Key Witness
Bill Cosby retrial judge Steven T. O’Neill is deliberating until Monday on whether or not to allow portions of a key witness’ previous deposition to be read to the jury, as the defense has requested. The witness, Sheri Williams — purportedly a close friend of Cosby’s alleged sexual assault victim Andrea Constand — has not responded to subpoenas, according to the defense attorneys, who have tried in vain to question her for Cosby’s retrial.

Cosby’s defense team believes Williams would have special insight into their allegation that Constand plotted to lie about Cosby assaulting her for money.

Witnesses that the defense did procure for the stand on Friday made for relatively brief and unrevealing interviews. Debbie Meister, a Cosby personal assistant, produced documents of his past itineraries and flight schedules. Prosecutor Kevin Steele made short work of having Meister, who began working for Cosby in 2010, clarify that she was not present in 2004 when Constand’s alleged assault took place.

‘Smallville’ Star Allison Mack Accused of Recruiting for NXIVM, Group Accused of Sex Trafficking and Branding Women

‘Smallville’ Star Allison Mack Accused of Recruiting for NXIVM, Group Accused of Sex Trafficking and Branding Women
Actress Allison Mack, known for her work on the superhero TV series “Smallville,” was arrested Friday and accused of recruiting women into a purported self-help organization, NXIVM, in which they were required to work and have sex with the group’s leader, Keith Raniere, prosecutors said.

U.S. attorney Richard P. Donoghue said in a statement Friday that Mack recruited women for Raniere, and that the women were “exploited, both sexually and for their labor.” He said Mack, who was arrested in Brooklyn, New York, is accused of “directly or implicitly” requiring women “to engage in sexual activity with Raniere. In exchange for this, Mack received financial and other benefits from Raniere.”

Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March. He traveled there after The New York Times published a report in October about the group branding women. Mack’s involvement with the group has long been a subject of speculation: She can be seen in a series of conversations posted to YouTube last year, smilingly interviewing Raniere about his teachings.

His charges in March involve sex trafficking and conspiring to force labor. According to Donoghue, Raniere, known within the group as “The Vanguard,” created “a secret society of women whom he had sex with and branded with his initials, coercing them with the threat of releasing their highly personal information and taking their assets.”

Harvey Weinstein Seeks Emails He Says Will Help Him ‘Defend Himself’ in Court
Harvey Weinstein filed court papers in Delaware bankruptcy court on Friday seeking emails from The Weinstein Co. that his lawyers say will help him defend himself in civil proceedings and criminal investigations.
