How Nora Ephron's Work Inspired A Real Romance
Screenwriter Nora Ephron's endearing rom-coms—including Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail—have inspired real romances.  One example, from PC Magazine... "It was 1978 when Gay Cioffi and Mark Obenhaus embarked on a three-week fling in Southampton [after meeting while jogging on a beach], bonding while trailing journalist and screenwriter Nora Ephron. They lost touch and went on to other marriages and families, but after Ephron's death in 2012 the separated Cioffi was encouraged by her niece to look up Obenhaus on Facebook and send him a friend request. She did, and in a scenario that fits neatly within the Ephron oeuvre, the two got together and realized they could no longer live apart. They married last August (in 2014)." ...

Bob Ross's Animal Rescues
A common theme on "The Joy of Painting" was Bob Ross's love for animals. "Often he would introduce the audience to animals that he had rescued and expressed how cute and adorable they were," notes Youtuber Mark Bishop. "Ross always maintained that as soon as the animals were better and healed up, he would release them back into the wild. From squirrels to deers and birds, it seemed that Ross loved all creatures great and small. "However, this wasn't a gimmick for the show. Ross spent his childhood tending to the needs of sick and injured animals, including snakes and alligators. Apparently one time, his mother found him tending to an injured alligator in the family bathtub." [Ross adopted the ...

Rod Stewart: Maggie Who?
Rod Stewart once revealed that his hit song "Maggie May" had been inspired by "one of the first if not the first woman I ever loved." Maggie May, however, was not her real name. It had been used for lyrical reasons—and because, as Stewart explained, "I forget what her name was." ["The singer Rod Stewart" is an anagram of "shattered songwriter."] [Rod Stewart, famed for his ultra-skin-tight pants, was once described by a critic as "a tuning fork with a mullet."]

Albert Einstein: Stay Together For The Kids
When their 11-year marriage began to fail, Albert Einstein & Mileva Maric agreed to continue to live together for the sake of their children. Einstein, however, issued a list of outrageous rules which he felt necessary for their coexistence: You will make sure: - that my clothes and laundry are kept in good order; - that I will receive my three meals regularly in my room; - that my bedroom and study are kept neat, and especially that my desk is left for my use only. You will renounce all personal relations with me insofar as they are not completely necessary for social reasons. Specifically, You will forego: - my sitting at home with you; - my going out ...

Though she epitomized freewheeling feminism and her liberated lyrics helped to define modern womanhood, singer-songwriter Carly Simon often struck some rather old-fashioned chords. "I think I like being married almost more than any other state," she told the Chicago Tribune in 1987, four years after her divorce from singer James Taylor. "I like having someone I can serve, in a way," she explained. "I guess you could say that means that I don't have enough self-love or something, but I think it comes with the territory of being a woman. I don't want to be the giver all the time, but I would rather nurture than be nurtured." Simon's 2015 memoir 'Boys in the Trees' also embraced her past—including her ...

Erik Estrada - Commemorating Baby
In 1986, former CHiPs star Erik Estrada became a father to a bouncing baby boy. He found an interesting way to commemorate the beautiful occasion. "A lot of people throw an umbilical cord away when it falls off," he later explained, "but it's something very sentimental to me—a piece of my wife and my child." Thus his decision to wear his son's umbilical cord in a windowed locket around his neck. To complete the set, Estrada also had the baby's first tooth set in a bracelet.

In the autumn of 2002, Spanish actor Javier Camara, an ardent young man from Madrid, decided to stay in New York for six weeks in order to learn English.

Fourteen months after getting into the pizza business, Domino's Pizza Founder Tom Monaghan made the first delivery from his new store in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. The order was to a dormitory at Central Michigan University. When Monaghan arrived, the woman at the reception desk, Margie, caught his eye. "After our second date," he recalled in his biography, "I gave Margie a heart-shaped pizza for Valentine's Day. It was a big hit with her friends in the dorm.

Tracy and Hepburn
Spencer Tracy hadn't worked in four years when producer-director Stanley Kramer got the idea of reuniting Tracy and Hepburn in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967). The actor had been sick for months, and Kramer felt involving him in work might be therapeutic. Katharine Hepburn had not been seen professionally for nearly five years; she had chosen to devote herself to the ailing Tracy, with whom she had had a long and loving relationship. But Tracy and Hepburn liked the interracial theme of Kramer's picture and agreed to do it. "From the outset the task proved strenuous for evenlone concerned. Tracy could work only for short periods, so shooting had to be scheduled around him. Four days before work on ...
