From Israel, Former WPIX Entertainment Anchor Emily Frances Now Runs HowtoMomTV

A lot can happen in a few years. Back in 2010, Emily Frances was the morning news entertainment anchor at WPIX and trying to get pregnant through In Vitro Fertility treatments. Today, she is the mother of two young children and a Tel Aviv-based Internet entrepreneur.

“My husband and I are loving Israel,” Frances tells FishbowlNY after moving there from New York in September. “It is the best place to raise children. Israel is a kid-centric country where money is truly invested into playgrounds, kids activities and schools.”

“We love the fact that family is so important here,” she continues. “People have careers but the careers don’t define them. After [my four-day-a-week, intensive] Hebrew classes, I ride my bike to a place called Namal. It’s the old Tel Aviv port and has been gentrified like the Meatpacking District. I sit outside at a cafe and write my blogs, optimize my videos and do social media for HowtoMomTV.”

Rambo Gets the Bollywood Green Light

Is this really necessary? Today in Cannes, Dave McNary of Variety confirms that a Bollywood film company will soon be remaking Sylvester Stallone’s 2008 offering Rambo. This plan was originally outlined at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, but it is only now – a year later – that full funding is in place:

Daljit Parmar, nephew of the late Bollywood multi-hyphenate Mehmood, said the Rambo and Expendables remakes should be in production by the end of the year.

“I am extremely excited to announce the launch of our slate to remake titles from some of the most successful action franchises in Hollywood on this historic 100-year anniversary celebration of Indian cinema at Cannes,” he said.

Marketing Expert: Charlie Sheen is Now #HalfWinning

Perhaps Charlie Sheen’s marketing appeal should now be measured by an east coast BBQ restaurant. Especially since his recent antics basically torched one-half of his audience base.

In a Daily Beast article, Maria Elena Fernandez gets the name of a marketing intelligence firm a tad wrong. It should read The Q Scores Company, not The Q Company. Former ABC-TV marketing VP Henry Schafer tells the reporter that although the Anger Management star’s Q score is up, that notoriety has come at a price:

“It looks like from everything that transpired, it was his female appeal that got hit the hardest,” Schafer said. “He’s a complete turn-off to women right now, whereas, back in the day, at the height of Two and a Half Men, he was way above average with female consumers. He’s lost most of his consumer strength with women of all ages and men 35 and older. But young males, 18 to 34, were relatively unaffected by all of his ranting and raving.”

Latest Charlie Sheen Stage Maneuver Has Journalists #Wincing

Charlie Sheen reached a new low last night on stage in Columbus, Ohio, when he incited the crowd to join along with him in calling out his ex-wife Denise Richards with a chorus chant of “F*ck that b*tch!” Never mind that many of the 3,000 or so spectators did.

Salon staff writer Mary Elizabeth Williams is properly horrified, with thoughts of how this might eventually affect the couple’s two daughters Sam and Lola:

No child, under any circumstances, deserves to have her mother spoken of in those terms, period, let alone by a crowd of Ohio morons. And no woman deserves the very threatening and very scary experience of having any man incite up that much public rage against her, period. It’s vile, and it’s potentially dangerous. So what do you call a tiger blooded Adonis who would do such a stupid thing? Duh, sociopath.

Now Playing: Your Cat’s POV

Several Southern California felines played a part in the making of four-minute documentary Cat Diaries: The First Ever Movie Filmed by Cats. Our favorite, based on the bios listed at sponsor Friskies’ website, is 14-year-old Hollywood male Simon. (Apparently, this corresponds to 72 in human years.)

“Simon is a professor emeritus at USC,” the tongue-in-cheek owner-provided profile reads. “He is the recipient of the prestigious Lamont Prize for poetry, the MacDowell Medal for contribution to the arts and the only cat ever to receive a “Genius Grant” from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.”

Denise Richards: ‘I Don’t Think of Charlie Sheen’s Penis Anymore’

denisedakf;.jpg

Thank goodness for FOX‘s The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet. If not for them, we would all be left wondering, “Why would Denise Richards agree to do a reality show?”

Now we know. It’s to set the record straight: “I’m trying so hard to take the high road and not say anything. I want to focus on our kids. I don’t care. We are already disputing our situation. He can say I want his sperm … whatever. I don’t really want to think of his penis anymore. I want to move on.”

So do we…

LAT In 90 Seconds

33885041.jpgFractious Or Fictitious? There appears to be dissent among members of the Writers Guild of America, with “key members” pushing union leaders to get back to the bargaining table. But WGA officials say they haven’t received many complaints and accuse the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers of “trying to create the impression that there was a schism.”

34228653-12035139.jpgSick Puppies: Someone at Pets of Bel Air must have pissed off the wrong well-connected client. The head of the Humane Society of the United States accused the Westside pet store (favored by Britney Spears and Denise Richards) of selling puppies obtained from puppy mills. And the L.A. Animal Services shut down the shop for selling pets without a proper permit from the city and for not having veterinary records available for inspection.
