Big Bang Theory join Team Ritter

This crossover is incredible in quite a number of ways.   Big Bang Theory join Team Ritter to raise funds for aortic health research My friends over at the John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health work tirelessly on raising awareness and funds for their research and they’re about to run the New York Marathon to raise funds. It’s fantastic to see The Big Bang Theory putting their support behind it and becoming part of the Ritter CrewKaley Cuoco starred in 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter together with John…

L is for Liberace. And Larry Dallas.

L is for Liberace. And Larry Dallas.

One of the very first people I interviewed on this blog was Richard Kline. At the time he was just beginning preparation for his new role of Liberace in “All That Glitters”. Now, it’s about to start! Richard played the character of Larry Dallas, the sleazy used car salesman and best friend of Jack Tripper (John Ritter) on my favourite sitcom, Three’s Company, and when I heard he is about to star in a Broadway production of All That Glitters, about Liberace, I fired off an email asking him for an interview. I was overjoyed when he replied…

Chris Mann – Pop Culture and Three’s Company / John Ritter

Pop Speaking could not hope to get off to 2014 on a better footing.  This post is very very special to me. Chris Mann is not only one of the top authorities on pop culture of today, he’s the definitive voice on Three’s Company, the male star of which, John Ritter, inspired this blog. He has been kind enough to spend a lot of time and effort sending me some invaluable information as well as three previously unpublished photographs.   Chris Mann is the author of “Come and Knock on…

Amy Yasbeck chats to us about The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health

I remember the day well – standing in front of the TV in sad, shocked, silence as the announcer told us that John Ritter, American actor and star of Three’s Company, had passed away suddenly. A lot of celebs had passed away, but John’s death was on the same level as that of Princess Diana – you just knew that we had lost somebody amazing. We still feel that loss today, but MORE than that – John Ritter still makes us laugh today. In my own family, we have spent most…

RIP John Ritter 1948 – 11 Sept 2003

RIP John Ritter 1948 – 11 Sept 2003

Something strange has happened to me. I’ve become a fan of someone 10 years after he passed away. I’m a stargazer. I love my celebrities. But this one’s different. In the past I’ve always become a fan of a person in their lifetime. I’m talking about JOHN RITTER. I always LIKED John Ritter. But to be honest, I didn’t know that much about him, I’d seen him in Problem Child and I remembered that he’d been in Three’s Company. And I was sad when I heard he died, specially since…
