By Martha Ross | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: August 7, 2018 at 11:38 am | UPDATED: August 7, 2018 at 11:40 am Once upon a time, Kathleen Turner was one of America’s most interesting screen actresses. As New York magazine writes, the Academy Award nominee used her natural talent, distinctive husky voice and “charismatic blend of steel and sass” to light up a string of acclaimed roles in hit 1980s movies, including “Prizzi’s Honor,” “Peggy Sue Got Married,” “Romancing the Stone,” and “The War of the Roses.” But as Turner noted in the interview, her debut film role, as a ruthless femme fatale in the erotic noir thriller “Body Heat” in 1981, didn’t just make her internationally famous, it made her “a sexual target.” Turner, now 64, said she later learned from her “Romancing the Stone” co-star Michael Douglas that she had become “a … [Read more...] about Kathleen Turner dishes: When Michael Douglas, Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty competed to sleep with her

By Dianne de Guzman, SFGATE Updated 5:01 pm, Thursday, May 10, 2018 A video of a confrontation over a charcoal barbecue at Lake Merritt is attracting national attention after being shared and viewed thousands of times since its initial posting. A white woman was in disagreement with two black men over whether a charcoal grill was allowed at Lake Merritt. Video of the confrontation shows the unidentified woman on the phone as she waits to talk with the Oakland Police Department, and people at the lake argue with her. Oakland resident Onsayo Abram was setting up the barbecue that morning when he said the woman began to argue with him over the use of the grill.

By Rusty Simmons Published 4:45 pm, Sunday, April 29, 2018 Devante Downs had run out of food at his Saturday draft gathering, so he was at the grocery store when he finally got a call from Minnesota linebackers coach Adam Zimmer saying he would be selected in the NFL draft. It was a long wait for both of Cal’s top prospects, with James Looney and Downs getting their names called in the final (seventh) round. Downs, a 6-foot-3, 245-pound linebacker, went No. 225 overall, and Looney, at 6-3, 280 pounds, was nabbed by Green Bay at No. 232. It marked the 28th consecutive season that Cal has had at least two players drafted, including 19 players since 2012. Considered a “tweener” at defensive tackle and defensive end, Looney’s ability and production were enough to keep him from going undrafted. After racking up 130 tackles, including 20½ for losses, and eight sacks in three seasons at Cal, Looney was a workout wonder at the NFL combine. He finished … [Read more...] about NFL draft calls come late for 2 Cal players
