Peaches Geldof, the jet-setting socialite daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, has died. She was 25.

 

Police were called to an address near Wrotham, Kent, following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman on Monday afternoon.

Bob Geldof told the AP in a statement: “Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child.

“How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever,” Bob Geldof continued. “How sad that sentence is. Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof.”

Shirley Temple (Former Bright-Eyed, Dimpled Child Movie Star) Dies

Shirley Temple Black, who lifted America’s spirits as a bright-eyed, dimpled child movie star during the Great Depression and later became a U.S. diplomat, died late on Monday evening at the age of 85, her family said in a statement.

Temple Black, who lured millions to the movies in the 1930s, “peacefully passed away” at her Woodside, Calif., home from natural causes at 10:57 p.m. local time (0157 ET), surrounded by her family and caregivers, the statement said on Tuesday.

“We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife of fifty-five years,” the statement said.

As actress Shirley Temple, she was precocious, bouncy and adorable with a head of curly hair, tap-dancing through songs like “On The Good Ship Lollipop.” As Ambassador Shirley Temple Black, she was soft-spoken and earnest in postings in Czechoslovakia and Ghana, out to disprove concerns that her previous career made her a diplomatic lightweight.

“I have no trouble being taken seriously as a woman and a diplomat here,” Black said after her appointment as U.S. ambassador to Ghana in 1974. “My only problems have been with Americans who, in the beginning, refused to believe I had grown up since my movies.”

Black, born April 23, 1928, started her entertainment career in the early 1930s and was famous by age 6. She became a national institution and her raging popularity spawned look-alike dolls, dresses and dozens of other Shirley Temple novelties as she became one of the first stars to enjoy the fruits of the growing marketing mentality.

Shirley was 3 when her mother put her in dance school, where a talent scout spotted her and got her in “Baby Burlesk,” a series of short movies with child actors spoofing adult movies.

Movie studio executives took notice. In 1934 she appeared in the film “Stand Up and Cheer!”, and her song and dance number in “Baby Take a Bow” stole the show. Other movies in that year included “Little Miss Marker” and “Bright Eyes” – which featured her signature song “On the Good Ship Lollipop” – and in 1935 she received a special Oscar for her “outstanding contribution to screen entertainment.”

She made some 40 feature movies, including “The Little Colonel,” “Poor Little Rich Girl,” “Heidi” and “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm,” in 10 years, starring with big-name actors like Randolph Scott, Lionel Barrymore and Jimmy Durante.

Shirley was a superstar before the term was invented. She said she was about 8 when adoring crowds shouting their love for her made her realize she was famous.

“I wondered why,” she recalled. “I asked my mother and she said, ‘Because your films make them happy.'”

She was such a money-maker that her mother – who would always tell her “Sparkle, Shirley!” before she appeared before an audience – and studio officials shaved a year off her age to maintain her child image.

Her child career came to an end at age 12. She tried a few roles as a teenager – including opposite future president Ronald Reagan in “That Hagen Girl” – but retired from the screen in 1949 at age 21.

The Screen Actors Guild gave her its 2005 Life Achievement Award, and in her acceptance speech posted on the group’s website, she said: “I have one piece of advice for those of you who want to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award: start early!”

POLITICS AND DIPLOMACY

Temple was only 17 in 1945 when she married for the first time to John Agar, who would eventually appear with her in two movies. Their five-year marriage produced a daughter.

In 1950 she wed Charles Black in a marriage that lasted until his death in 2005. She and Black had two children.

Black’s interest in politics was sparked in the early ’50s when her husband was called back into the Navy to work in Washington.

She did volunteer work for the Republican Party while attempting to make a comeback with two short-lived TV series, “Shirley Temple’s Storybook” in 1959 and “The Shirley Temple Theater” a year later.

Seven years after that she ran unsuccessfully for Congress in California but stayed in politics, helping raise more than $2 million for Richard Nixon’s re-election campaign.

She was later named to the United States’ team to the United Nations and found that the her childhood popularity was an asset in her new career.

“Having been a film star can be very helpful on an international basis,” Black once said. “Many people consider me an old friend.”

Sometimes the public found it hard to accept her in diplomatic roles. But in 1989 she pointed out her 20 years in public service were more than the 19 she spent in Hollywood.

In 1974, Ford appointed Black ambassador to Ghana and two years later made her chief of protocol. For the next decade she trained newly appointment ambassadors at the request of the State Department.

In 1989, President George H.W. Bush made Black ambassador to Prague – a sensitive Eastern European post normally reserved for career diplomats. Black had been in Prague in 1968, representing a group fighting multiple sclerosis at a conference, when Soviet-bloc tanks entered to crush an era of liberalization known as the “Prague Spring.”

President Gustav Husak did not seem daunted by the prospect of a U.S. ambassador who had witnessed the invasion. He told her that he had been a fan of “Shirleyka.”

In 1972, Black was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy. She publicly discussed her surgery to educate women about the disease.

Black is survived by her children, Susan, Charlie Jr., and Lori, her granddaughter Teresa and her great-granddaughters Lily and Emma, the family statement said. It said private funeral arrangements were pending.

Cassandra Lynn Hensley (Playboy Model) Found Dead At Friend’s Home

Former Playboy centerfold Cassandra Lynn Hensley was found dead at a friend’s home in Los Angeles, the coroner said Friday.

Hensley was 34.

The autopsy on Playboy’s Miss February 2006 was done Thursday, but the determination of the cause of death has been deferred until toxicology testing is completed, Los Angeles County coroner’s Lt. Joe Bale said. Lab results usually take several weeks to become available.

The model’s body was found at 9 a.m. Wednesday in a home in the Marina Del Rey area, Bale said.

Hensley, who lived in Fairfax, Virginia, told Philadelphia’s Metropolis Nights magazine last month that there was “life after Playboy.”

“I have been a part of many great experiences: travel shows, magazine covers, and of course giving advice to young impressionable girls who think they need to act a certain way for a chance to be a model — classy not slutty,” she told the magazine.

Cassandra Lynn Hensley was featured in Playboy in February 2006. She died Thursday at age 34.

Monica Spear 29 (Former Miss Venezuelan & Soap Star) Gunned Down In Robbery, 5-Year-Old Daughter Shot, Estranged Husband Killed

In one of her last Twitter posts, Venezuelan beauty queen Monica Spear wished her fans peace, health and love.

The 29-year-old soap opera star was gunned down by the side of a country road less than a week later.

Armed robbers opened fire after the car Spear and her estranged husband, Thomas Henry Berry, were driving in broke down in Venezuela’s Carabobo state, officials said. Both of them were killed.

Their 5-year-old daughter survived Monday’s shooting, authorities said, but was shot in the leg.

“At the moment the only thing we know is that it is presumed that the motive was robbery,” Venezuelan Justice Minister Miguel Rodriguez Torres said. “We are still investigating. There are five people detained who are being interrogated.”

Spear was Miss Venezuela in 2004 and represented her country in the Miss Universe pageant the next year.

Her popularity opened the door to acting roles in soap operas that eventually made her an international star. She worked in Colombia and more recently in the United States, where she made her home in Miami.

She was vacationing in Venezuela with her family when she was killed.

Word of Spear’s slaying spread quickly on social media and drew a massive response from fans in the South American nation and well beyond its borders.

Movie stars, fellow soap opera actors, athletes and government officials expressed sorrow and condemned the attack.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro called the killing a massacre and said more needed to be done to put a stop to violence.

Venezuela is one of the world’s most violent countries, according to a United Nations ranking.

One person is killed roughly every 21 minutes in Venezuela. And there were 24,700 violent deaths last year in the oil-rich country of roughly 30 million people, according to the nonprofit Venezuelan Violence Observatory.

“This happens every day in Venezuela. … If the victim had not been this actress, the person would simply be one more statistic,” said Luis Izquiel, a lawyer and criminologist in Caracas.

Richard Linares, Spear’s Venezuela-based personal trainer, said the slaying shows how little life is valued in his country.

“Life does not matter,” he told CNN en Español on Tuesday. “A life can be traded for some shoes.”

“It devastates me that there is a 5-year-old girl who is asleep, and when she wakes up she will ask how her parents are, and she no longer has any parents,” Linares said.

Venezuelan officials said they’re committed to solving the problem.

“It is painful, not only the death of this beloved Venezuelan actress and the wound her daughter received, but also the death of any Venezuelan who falls in the hands of violence,” Rodriguez said.

Authorities also said they had assigned two prosecutors to investigate Monday’s slayings.

In an interview with The Huffington Post last year, Spear said she left Venezuela because of the country’s security problems.

But Spear was eager to visit her home country over the holidays, close friend and CNN Latino anchor Maria Alejandra Requena said.

“She wanted to spend Christmas and New Year’s in Venezuela,” Requena said, “to travel around Venezuela, to let her little daughter know her country.”

Kim Ji-hoon of the duo Duke was found dead in an apparent suicide in a hotel room in Seoul on Thursday. Police said Kim was found hanging from a noose in the shower booth of the room in the early afternoon.

A friend found his body after Kim did not show up for a lunch appointment. The singer had been staying in the hotel since Dec. 6. He left no suicide note.

The singer rose to fame in the mid-1990s as a member of the K-pop group Two Two but was quickly forgotten. In 2000 he formed Duke to survive in the cycle of ups and downs of the entertainment industry, but he did not get much attention. In 2005 and 2009 he was arrested for taking drugs and in 2010 he divorced his wife.

Friends said Kim had since suffered from psychological strain and financial woes.
