The cast of Mrs. American Pie is filling up!

Apple TV+ has announced, via Deadline, that seven new stars have joined the cast for the new show, which is about “gorgeously impossible people. Set during the powder keg era of the early 1970s, it follows Maxine Simmons (Kristen Wiig) and her attempt to secure her seat at America’s most exclusive table: Palm Beach high society. As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, the series asks the same questions that baffle us today: Who gets a seat at the table, how do you get a seat at the table, and what will you sacrifice to get there?”

Bob Odenkirk has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!

The 59-year-old actor was joined by his wife Naomi and their cute dog at the star unveiling ceremony on Monday afternoon (April 18) in Hollywood.

During his speech, Bob talked about his early days in Hollywood.

“I walked the streets with my nose high in the air, scoffing at every symbol of Hollywood and fame and famous people and celebrities and everything about it that was so big and distant and intimidating,” he said (via ABC7). “And I still do that. I still pretend to disdain it all. It’s healthy. It’s better that way. But inside, I don’t disdain Hollywood. I love it.”

Carol Burnett Granted Temporary Guardianship of 14-Year-Old Grandson

Carol Burnett has been appointed the temporary guardian of her grandson Dylan.

The 87-year-old actress and her husband Brian Miller have been granted guardianship of their 14-year-old grandson through January 8, 2021, according to court document obtained by People.

“The Court finds that sufficient evidence has been provided to grant the matter on calendar this date based upon the reading of the moving papers and consideration of all presented evidence,” the documents read. “The Petition – Appoint a Temporary Guardian (Subsequent) filed on 8/18/2020 by Petitioner(s) Carol Burnett, Brian Miller is granted. Carol Burnett & Brian Miller is/are appointed as Temporary Guardian(s) of the Person of Dylan Hamilton-West until 01/08/2021 and Temporary Letters shall be valid until that date.”

The decision comes after Carol asked the courts to be granted temporary custody of Dylan amid her daughter Erin Hamilton‘s substance abuse issues.

“Throughout her adult life, and since Dylan’s birth, Erin has suffered from severe substance abuse and addiction issues,” Carol said in filing a few weeks ago. “In the past 19 years, Erin has been in and out of rehabilitation centers and has been institutionalized a total of eight times for a minimum of 30 days each time.”

Dylan‘s father, Erin‘s ex-husband Tony West, is also unable to care for their son as he recently checked into a rehab center, the court documents revealed.

Carol Burnett Is Seeking Temporary Guardianship of Grandson Dylan

Carol Burnett has filed papers to get full custody of her grandson, according to The Blast.

The site reports that the 87-year-old legendary comedian and actress, along with husband Brian Miller, are seeking temporary guardian over their 13-year-old grandson Dylan due to her daughter, Erin Hamilton‘s, substance abuse issues.

The files state that Carol “wants to be able to provide him with temporary care, maintenance and support.”

The comedian says, “Throughout her adult life, and since Dylan’s birth, Erin has suffered from severe substance abuse and addiction issues. In the past 19 years, Erin has been in and out of rehabilitation centers and has been institutionalized a total of eight times for a minimum of 30 days each time.”

Earlier this year, Carol called in a welfare check on Erin, and Erin was subsequently placed on a 51/50 hold for suicidality and drug use.

Carol has asked the court to grant her temporary guardianship, which will allow her and Brian to handle her grandson’s affairs.

Just recently, Carol made a rare appearance at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards and presented an award to this talk show host.
