Zachary Quinto banned from Toronto bistro for behaving ‘like an entitled child’

Actor Zachary Quinto has been banned from a Toronto restaurant after he berated staff and stormed away from his weekend brunch plans, the eatery’s co-owner said. Quinto, known for playing the unemotional and logical Mr. Spock, was apparently much less restrained than his “Star Trek” character when he allegedly yelled at staffers at Manita restaurant “like an entitled child,” disrupting other diners as he demanded a table. “An amazing Spock, but terrible customer,” the restaurant wrote Sunday in a post in its Instagram stories. “Take your bad vibes elsewhere,” said Manita’s initial post, which has since aged out. “We have many lovely celebrities join us at Manita but you are NOT one of them.” Unless Quinto formally apologizes, he will not be welcome at Manita, co-owner Ian McGrenaghan said in an email to The Times. Manita later reposted the story on its grid, writing in the caption, “We aren’t above criticism, but we are above being demeaned… Manita is deeply grateful for our mostly incredible, friendly, gracious guests.” Representatives for Quinto did not respond Monday to The Times’ requests for comment. On social media, the

In a post on X, the station said Kriski was “on the fast track to recovery,” adding that “his sense of humor is also still intact.” On May 10, weeks before Kriski’s stroke, his colleague Sam Rubin died at

House Approves Bill To Name Glendale Post Office For Former Navy Secretary

A bill to name a post office in Glendale for former U.S. Navy Secretary Paul Ignatius, a son of one of the first Armenian families to settle in the city, was approved by the House of Representatives Monday in a unanimous vote. The bill would designate the post office at 6444 San Fernando Road as the “Paul Ignatius Post Office” after the 103-year-old, who — when he was Navy secretary under President Lyndon Johnson from 1967-69 — was the highest-ranking Armenian American in the U.S. government. “In Glendale, he has been a pillar of the community, a mentor and a source of inspiration for many, especially the Armenian community who he has encouraged to follow him into public service,” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, who introduced the bill, said on the House floor before the vote. “His commitment to education, civic engagement and cultural preservation has profoundly impacted the Armenian-American community and the broader public. He has worked to promote understanding, tolerance and unity, reflecting the values that make our community strong and vibrant.” Ignatius worked at the Glendale Post Office as a temporary clerk when

US braces for first major Southwest heat wave of the year

Temperatures are expected to climb in the coming days across much of the American Southwest, including parts of California. The heat-up is expected to begin Tuesday, with temperatures in some places forecast to be as much as 5 to 20 degrees above historical averages. Temperatures will begin cooling down around Friday evening. Meteorologists from Accuweather, a weather forecasting media company, say a “bulge in the jet stream due to high-pressure building in the atmosphere and a storm offshore of California” will cause heat to build without any rain or thunderstorm activity across much of the West. Millions of Americans will be affected by the scorching heat, including possible record-high temperatures in Sacramento on Tuesday and Fresno on Thursday. Temperatures in Las Vegas and Phoenix could both exceed 110 degrees. Southern California Weather Forecast “Additional locations across California’s interior Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys will match or set daily record highs through the week,” said AccuWeather meteorologist Alyssa Glenny. Record-breaking heat totals are possible in parts of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming, Accuweather forecasting models show.

Cheryl Burke warns new ‘Dancing With the Stars’ contestants: ‘Be single’ or be sorry

“Dancing With the Stars” alum Cheryl Burke has some explicit advice for newcomers to the dance floor. “Be single if you do ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ That’s all I’m saying,” the professional dancer, who spent 26 seasons on the show, said on the most recent episode of “Sex, Lies and Spray Tans,” her “DWTS” tell-all podcast. Burke admitted to having three romantic relationships with partners during her run on the series and attributed the connections to the “insane” rehearsal schedules, which bring dance partners into repeated intimate interactions for up to three months. “You’re not like, ‘Oh yeah, he’s cute. Like, no, no, I either like you or I don’t, because you’re constantly [together] eight hours a day, seven days a week,” Burke said. However, not every partnership is love at first sight. Burke described each pairing as an “arranged marriage” in which the pro and the contestant “either love each other or hate each other.” “It’s so intimate, and you’re stuck with this person,” Burke said. “Like, you better try and make it work at least.” The partnerships are even messier for those who

Judge texted prosecutor during murder trial, then downplayed it. She almost lost her job

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge who was overseeing a murder trial has been disciplined for sending a text message to a former colleague in the district attorney’s office to question the prosecutor’s trial strategy. The text messages resulted in Judge Emily J. Cole’s public censure, the strongest sanction that a judicial commission can impose on a judge, short of being removed from the court. Cole served as a deputy district attorney in Los Angeles County for 13 years until she was elected to the bench in 2020 and started her first term the following year. The Commission on Judicial Performance reviewed Cole’s conduct that stemmed from an April 28, 2023, court hearing during a murder trial, according to a commission report published May 28. “Judge Cole’s misconduct is serious and undermined the integrity of, and respect for, the judiciary,” Commission Chairperson Michael Moodian said in the report. “Judge Cole’s conduct in sending text messages to her former colleague during a murder trial was antithetical to her role as a judge. She attempted to put a thumb on the scales of justice, crossed the

Janis Paige, enduring ‘Silk Stockings’ star from Hollywood’s Golden Age, dies at 101

The versatile and enduring performer Janis Paige, known for her starring role in the Tony-winning 1954 musical “The Pajama Game” and her scene-stealing performance in the 1957 movie musical “Silk Stockings,” has died. A key star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Paige died Sunday of natural causes in her Los Angeles home, her longtime friend Stuart Lampert confirmed to the Associated Press. She was 101. A redheaded triple-threat, Paige spent the 1940s as one of the busiest actors in Jack Warner’s stable. By the 1950s, she was as famous for her sex appeal as she was for her sass, on Broadway, television and touring nationally as a singer on the nightclub circuit. Born Donna Mae Tjaden on Sept. 16, 1922, in Tacoma, Wash., Paige was a gifted singer as a child, performing at local amateur shows. Her parents divorced during the Depression, and Paige’s mother raised her and her sister alone. Paige performed in theater productions in high school, then after graduation she and her mother moved to Los Angeles to see if she could make it as a performer. She took a job serving sandwiches
