Alan Thicke passed away… All-female DC villain movie… “The Voice” finale… A Lamar Odom reality show?… and Property Brothers’ Drew Scott is engaged to Linda Phan
It’s so incredibly sad to hear that Alan Thicke passed away from a heart attack yesterday at the age of 69. Alan is best known for his role as Jason Seaver, the dad on “Growing Pains.” He was playing hockey with his 19-year-old son Carter when he became ill. The paramedics were called and, according to the hockey rink manager, Alan was in good spirits as he was being taken off the ice, telling his son to take a picture of him and giving the thumbs up that he was going to be okay. Sadly, he didn’t make it. Alan’s oldest son Robin posted on Instagram, “My Father passed away today. He was the best man I ever knew. The best friend I ever had. Let’s all rejoice and celebrate the joy he brought to every room he was in. We love you Alan Thicke. Thank you for you love. Love, you grateful son.” Alan’s TV son, Kirk Cameron, posted on Instagram, “I spent Monday through Friday for seven important years with Alan Thicke as my ‘TV dad.’ I’m shocked and truly heartbroken today at the news of his death. Alan was a generous, kind and loving man. I am so blessed to have grown up with him. Chelsea and I send our love and prayers to his family tonight. We will cherish the memories… ‘sharing the laughter and love.’”

Get ready for an all-female DC villains movie. Margot Robbie is already on board to not only star but serve as executive producer. “Suicide Squad” director David Ayer has signed on to direct and produce the film. The movie is called “Gotham City Sirens,” and in addition to Margot’s Harley Quinn, we’ll also be seeing other female villains, Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
SPOILER ALERT: On the Season 11 finale of “The Voice,” Team Blake’s Sundance Head was named the winner. That’s Blake Shelton’s fifth win! Nobody was more shocked than Sundance, who says he thought Team Alicia’s We McDonald was going to win since day one. In fact, Sundance says HE even voted for her ten times on Monday night! Even Blake bet against Sundance, losing $1000 to Adam Levine. But Blake says he only bet against Sundance out of superstition, because he thought if he bet on him to win, it would hex him.
TMZ Sports is reporting that Lamar Odom voluntarily checked himself into rehab because he was afraid he would go off the deep end on December 15. That’s the birthday of his son, Jayden, who was born in 2005, but passed away six months later from SIDS. In addition to that, Lamar’s divorce from Khloe Kardashian will be official on Saturday, so it’s just a really heavy time of year for him. Meantime, a source told Us Weekly that Lamar is set to star in his own reality show focused on his recovery.
It was pretty shocking to find out this week that HGTV’s Tarek and Christina El Moussa of “Flip or Flop” are going through what seems to be an ugly divorce and have even started seeing other people. But there is some happy news over at HGTV! “Property Brothers” twin Drew Scott has proposed to his longtime girlfriend Linda Phan. “People” magazine got all the details from the proposal. Drew took Linda to a restaurant in Toronto and arranged for them to play a song he’d secretly recorded, Train’s “Marry Me.” That was the cue for the waitstaff to bring out a cake decorated with illustrations from Linda’s favorite children’s book, Oh the Places You’ll Go, only it read “Oh the Places WE’LL Go.” How could she say no after all that! Then he took her to another restaurant where Linda thought there was going to be a company Christmas party, only it was her surprise engagement party, instead.
