“Glee” actress Heather Morris pleaded with authorities to join the search for former co-star Naya Rivera on Sunday — saying she feels “helpless” amid her disappearance.
Morris, who played Rivera’s love interest on “Glee,” said she and a “small group of friends” want to conduct an on-foot search to find the actress, who vanished while boating last week in Lake Piru in Ventura County.
“I understand your team is doing EVERYTHING in their power, but we are feeling helpless, powerless and want to help in any way,” Morris wrote to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office on Twitter.
I have left a message with the department of Rescue and Air today, and I will call again tomorrow. Thank you.” she continued.

The 33-year-old Rivera was reported missing Wednesday after she took out a rented boat with her 4-year-old son, Josey Dorsey, in the lake, about 56 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
When they didn’t return to shore, her son was discovered alone on the vessel with Rivera nowhere to be found, authorities said.
Search crews are on day five of searching for Rivera, who is presumed to have accidentally drowned in the lake.

Following a “small memorial” for Broadway star Nick Cordero, his wife, Amanda Kloots, opened up about the struggle with coming to terms with her “new normal.” 
Cordero, 41, died July 5 after a 95-day hospital stay with a series of complications from the coronavirus, including a leg amputation, infections in his lungs and the insertion of a temporary pacemaker. Kloots kept her social media followers updated at every turn. 
Kloots told the “close family and friends” in attendance Saturday that her late husband “would have wanted this to be a celebration” and invited them to share their favorite stories and sing “to his memory.” 
“He would have loved it,” she wrote in an Instagram post Sunday. “It was beautiful and perfect. His spirit was definitely there.”

Attendees listened to the song “I’m Here” from the Broadway musical “The Color Purple,” which she and Cordero once saw live and “left the theater in tears, speechless.” 
On Saturday night, the song struck Kloots again  for a different reason.
“Truly, I am scared,” she wrote. “Scared of my new normal, of the pain, the loss and being strong enough to get through it. But, I know Nick is up above routing (sic) for me, believing in me and hoping for me. He wants me to LIVE this new life and he wants me to be the best version of myself for our son. I promised him in the hospital that I would try to do that.”

We had a small memorial yesterday with close family and friends. I said, Nick would have wanted this to be a celebration. Lets try to laugh, share great stories and sing for him and to his memory. He would have loved it. It was beautiful and perfect. His spirit was definitely there. We listened to the song, Im Here, from The Color Purple. Nick and I saw this show on Broadway years ago and we left the theater in tears, speechless. As it was being played last night the lyrics in the second half of the song hit me hard. Truly, I am scared. Scared of my new normal, of the pain, the loss and being strong enough to get through it. But, I know Nick is up above routing for me, believing in me and hoping for me. He wants me to LIVE this new life and he wants me to be the best version of myself for our son. I promised him in the hospital that I would try to do that. So, when I heard these lyrics yesterday I thought, Ok. When Im doubting if I can get through this, Im playing this song. It will be my motto. This is a long journey ahead and a down road I never thought Id be on. No one can tell me how to do it, I have to do it. I may do things right, I may do them wrong. There isnt a perfect way. One day, one step at a time. I have faith that God is leading the way and that Nick is our angel. In case you dont know this song and are also in need of a motto, here are the lyrics. Do yourself a favor by listening to @cynthiaerivo sing it. I’m gonna take a deep breath. Gonna hold my head up. Gonna put my shoulders back, And look you straight in the eye. I’m gonna flirt with somebody When they walk by. I’m gonna sing out . . . Sing out. I believe I have inside of me Everything that I need to live a bountiful life. With all the love alive in me I’ll stand as tall as the tallest tree. And i’m Thankful for everyday that i’m given, Both the easy and hard ones i’m livin’. But most of all I’m thankful for Loving who I really am. I’m beautiful. Yes, Im beautiful, And Im here.

Ever the optimist, Kloots decided that the song would be her new motto whenever she doubts she can get through hardship. 
“This is a long journey ahead and a down road I never thought Id be on,” she concluded. “No one can tell me how to do it, I have to do it. I may do things right, I may do them wrong. There isnt a perfect way. One day, one step at a time. I have faith that God is leading the way and that Nick is our angel.”

Wait, Did Charlize Theron Accidentally Inspire the ‘John Wick’ Movies? – Showbiz Cheat Sheet

Charlize Theron has a long-standing friendship with Keanu Reeves. But could one of their movies hold the inspiration behind the ‘John Wick’ series?

According to most moviegoers and critics, Mad Max: Fury Road stands as one of the best action films of the past decade. Despite the behind-the-scenes drama, the movie became an instant classic, even landing several Academy Awards. But that series isnt the only one star Charlize Theron is connected to in some way.
Could the actor have, in fact, inspired the John Wick movies?

Charlize Theron’s ‘Atomic Blonde’ is closely tied to the ‘John Wick’ series
Before we discuss Theron’s alleged connection to John Wick, it’s worth noting how the original 2014 release influenced her career. Following the first John Wick, director Chad Stahelski and uncredited co-director David Leitch parted ways. Stahelski stayed on for the sequels. Meanwhile, Leitch launched a new action franchise.
The result was 2017’s Atomic Blonde. In the film, Theron stars as Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent on a dangerous mission in the late 1980s. The action style and fight choreography — thanks to Leith’s involvement — are often compared to John Wick. And Theron and Keanu Reeves even trained for Atomic Blonde and John Wick: Chapter 2 at the same time.

But it turns out Theron herself may helped shape the first ‘John Wick’
So its clear that John Wick inspired Atomic Blonde, at least aesthetically if nothing else. But The Hollywood Reporter has drawn an even deeper relationship between John Wick and Theron. In a new interview, THR writer Brian Davids asks Theron if she knew she inspired John Wick. And the actress is just as puzzled as the rest of us.
Davids goes on to explain that the connection lies in 2001s Sweet November, a romantic drama starring Theron and Reeves. In that film, Therons terminally ill character sends her beloved (Reeves) a dog. In much the same way, John Wicks wife succumbs to an illness and sends a dog to keep him company. That pets death, of course, sets off the entire series.
“Oh my god! I cannot believe you just made that connection,” Theron said in response to THRs theory. “You are such a film nerd; I love you. Thats incredible. Oh my god Im literally going to text
