Tony Danza
Former Taxi star Tony Danza has revealed he was once Tupac Shakur's unlikely pen pal when the slain rapper was incarcerated in the mid 1990s.

The actor opens up about the odd friendship in his memoirs I'd Like To Apologize For Every Teacher I Ever Had, revealing he felt he could persuade Shakur to help troubled kids turn their lives around.

Danza tells Access Hollywood, "I was trying to make a point that since he had five bullet holes in him and he was in jail and he's the same guy that wrote Dear Mama and did all those great acting roles, I said, 'Maybe there is a better way to do this...

Actress Marilu Henner has been left devastated by the death of her Taxi co-star Jeff Conaway, after visiting the star in the hospital "almost daily" over the past few weeks.

Tony Danza
Actor Tony Danza has filed for divorce from his second wife Tracy, more than four years after the couple split.

The star of hit 80s shows Taxi and Who's The Boss? separated from his wife in 2006 and he's now asking a U.S. judge to officially declare their 24-year union over.

Danza is citing irreconcilable differences for the split, according to TMZ.com. The former couple has two daughters, Katherine, 24, and Emily, 17.

The 60 year old has since moved on to romance Andrea Micelucci, with whom he has a child.

Danza has two more kids from his first marriage to Rhonda Yeoman.

Tony Danza Interrupts Priest At Funeral

November 17th, 2010 11:13am EST
Tony Danza
Actor Tony Danza halted the funeral service of crime writer Philip Carlo on Thursday - to pay his own special tribute to his late pal.

Carlo died earlier this month aged 61 following a five-year battle with Lou Gehrig's disease. The writer was laid to rest last week in Brooklyn, New York, but several funeral guests were unhappy because the service contained very few references to Carlo's life and achievements. Taxi star Danza interrupted the eulogy by taking over with his own personal speech, according to New York Post gossip column PageSix.

A source tells the publication, "Tony, who wa...

Workplace Romance: Costars Who Fell In Love

August 19th, 2008 12:08pm EDT
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland's hearts skipped a beat while filming Flatliners (1990). Tom Cruise admired a young Aussie actress named Nicole Kidman and had her cast opposite him in Days of Thunder. The movie Seven ended with Gwynet...

Top 10 Corniest 80's TV Theme Songs

May 12th, 2008 9:02am EDT
The Facts Of Life
In today's TV climate, several shows don't even bother with theme songs (Lost, for example). Or the songs are barely a blip on the screen (Grey's Anatomy). That wasn't the case 20 years ago.

If you're a child of the 80s, there's something nostaligic about the decade's TV theme songs. But there's also something really hokey about them too. Here's our list of the corniest 80's TV theme songs:

10. Facts of Life

This song is really stupid, but you have to admit that the guys here on Scrubs nail it to the point where it's hard to say whether or not it should even make the list. ...

'Best Of The Little Guy' Sports Movies

February 11th, 2008 5:20pm EST
Little Giants
One week later, I'm still walking in circles around my house: pinching myself, reading newspaper articles, Tivoing ESPN, and gazing up at pictures of David Tyree. I just can't believe it. The New York Giants, my team, my sloppy, win ugly, stab me in the heart again and again until I'm either screaming or crying or laughing like a crazy person Giants have done the impossible-- they defeated the big, bad, *perfect* New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

It's like something out of a movie. Inspirational. Against all odds. Team victory. In my mind, it's already the greatest sports movi...

Artists To Check Out This Month: Thomas Ian Nicholas, Magnetic Fields & Kate Nash

January 21st, 2008 4:44pm EST
Thomas Ian Nicholas
The actor-musician hybrid is a tricky thing. It's a road peppered with the long-decomposed carcasses of Russell Crowe, Eddie Murphy and heaven forbid, David Hasselhoff.

Thomas Ian Nicholas

"Without Warning"

As a fresh-faced mop top in 1992's Rookie of the Year, Thomas Ian Nicholas was destined for a career of Tony Danza-dom. Known to the vast majority of Americans as Kevin from the American Pie flicks, who knew that Nicholas had visions of hypersensitive John Mayer-warbling beating around in his thickly trussed head?

On his latest release, "Without Warning," Nicholas a...
