    Fresh off her critically acclaimed films ‘Walking and Talking,’ ‘Wag the Dog’ and ‘Donnie Brasco,’ Anne Heche was set to become Hollywood's next big star - before her doomed relationship with stand-up comedian and talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres got her blacklisted from homophobic 1990s Hollywood. Heche - who died Friday after nearly a week on life support following her fiery car crash in Los Angeles on August 5 - was 28-years-old in 1997, when she was first seen with DeGeneres at the premiere of her disaster flick 'Volcano.' The two were thrust into the spotlight, becoming tabloid fodder, much to the detriment of the budding actress.  That relationship, Heche would admit to Page Six in 2020, 'changed my life forever.'

    Standing on the balcony of her Italian hotel room as dawn broke, Patricia Highsmith observed a young man walking alone on the beach below.  In shorts and sandals and with a towel flung over his shoulder, he had, she would later write, ‘an air of pensiveness about him, maybe unease. Why was he alone? Had he quarrelled with someone? What was on his mind?’ Many decades later, the novelist would claim that this solitary young man had been the inspiration for her most famous character, Tom Ripley, immortalised by Matt Damon in the 1999 movie The Talented Mr Ripley.  In fact, as I will reveal, the true inspiration for the charming, murderous psychopath Ripley came from a source much closer to home: Highsmith herself. A celebrated writer who mingled in the highest literary circles and whose gripping psychological thrillers inspired no fewer than 20 film adaptations, Highsmith simultaneously inhabited a secret inner world that saw her harbour frequent thoughts of death and killing.  OBSESSION WITH MURDER: Newly published diaries of author Patricia Highsmith reveal a secret inner world that saw...

    Ellen DeGeneres is facing renewed criticism after she issued an apology in response to allegations of a toxic work environment on her show that was seen by some as disingenuous, half-hearted and tone deaf.   DeGeneres launched the new season of her daytime talk show on Monday with a joke-filled monologue where she apologized for 'ever hurting' anyone, took responsibility for claims of misconduct on her set and admitted to being impatient - but insisted she was the person she appears to be on TV and not a behind-the-scenes villain.   Several current and former employees reacted to the monologue in interviews with Buzzfeed News, saying that they felt like DeGeneres' jokes were inappropriate given the severity of their experiences on the show.   'Not only did Ellen turn my trauma, turn our traumas, into a joke, she somehow managed to make this about her,' one former employee told the outlet.   'When she said: "Oh my summer was great" and that was supposed to be funny, I thought: "It's funny that you had a rough summer because everyone was calling out all of...
