Alien Huang, Taiwanese actor and singer, dead at 36

Alien Huang, the Taiwanese actor, singer and fashion designer also known as Huang Hong-Shen, has died. He was 36.

Police confirmed that Huang’s body was discovered on Wednesday morning at his home in the Beitou district of Taipei, Variety reported. The official cause of death has not yet been announced, but Huang’s management team is expected to make a statement later today.

The former member of the boy bands HC3 and Cosmo was wearing a top but no underwear at the time of his death, and blood stains were found on the floor, according to Apple Daily Taiwan. Huang’s body was found lying in the corridor outside the bathroom, United Daily News reported. No drugs, alcohol or signs of forced entry were found.

Huang launched his acting career in the 2000s, with starring roles in the 2015 gang pic “Gatao,” for which he also wrote music, and the 2016 comedy “Go! Crazy Gangster,” Deadline reported. He most recently appeared in the 2020 rom-com “Acting Out Of Love.”

However, he was best-known for TV work in the drama series “Lovestore At The Corner,” as well as hosting gigs on the variety shows “100% Entertainment” and “Mr. Player.”

In 2008 Huang also established Alien Evolution Studio, a fashion and accessories brand that remains in business at the time of his passing.

Huang is the third Asian celebrity to die at the age of 36 in three consecutive days. Japanese actress Ashina Sei was reported to have died by suicide on Monday. Korean actress and beauty vlogger Oh In-hye initially survived a suicide attempt Monday, but later died in the hospital.

Betsy DeVos’ nephew Ben Wierda wears tight pants on ‘Family Feud’

Betsy DeVos' nephew Ben Wierda wears tight pants on 'Family Feud'

Perhaps the show should be renamed “Celebrity Family Lewd.”

On a recent episode of “Celebrity Family Feud,” Ben Wierda had a fashion faux pas of epic, um, proportions. On the show, Wierda — a nephew of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and husband of Kathie Lee Gifford’s daughter Cassidy — was seen applauding onstage alongside his wife and mother-in-law when he appeared to look at a TV monitor and notice his too-tight pants were showing off “moose knuckle” — or a male version of “camel toe” in which one’s lower anatomy is ingloriously outlined.

After a downward glance that seemed to confirm his penis problem, the 29-year-old Wierda shot a camera-ready look of regret.

The prurient plight of Wierda, who married 26-year-old Cassidy in June, was highlighted in a Sept. 25 tweet by influencer and college hoops guru Rex Chapman that has amassed more than 31,000 likes, topped 5,000 retweets and resulted in a flurry of randy responses.

“It’s like a squirrel stuck in a Crown Royal bag,” replied one shocked observer, while another likened the groin gaffe to “when you stuff a loaf of bread down your pants.” A different commenter pinpointed a simple cause and effect, suggesting, “His nuts literally whispered ‘I can’t breath’ and he heard them.”

Yet another person wondered why no one in his high-profile family suggested pre-taping that he consider a wardrobe change, or perhaps a better tuck, writing, “I’m being serious. This dude somehow got them pants on. Then said ok, time to go on this game show. And he is with his family. No one said “Ben I think those pants don’t fit. It looks like you are going to pop your nuts.”

Perhaps Wierda’s slipup wasn’t so bad. There are plenty of other celebrities — like “Captain American” star Chris Evans, R&B singer Usher and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo — whose private areas also have received more regrettably viral overexposure.

‘Saved by the Bell’ revival with Mario Lopez gets premiere date

'Saved by the Bell' revival with Mario Lopez gets premiere date

At last, the “Saved by the Bell” cast has invited us to save the date: Wednesday, November 25.

The original high-school sitcom — which launched Mario Lopez, 46, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, 46 — aired on NBC from 1989 to 1993, and saw a sequel series called “Saved by the Bell: The College Years,” which aired from 1993 to 1994.

More than three decades later, there will be some changes to the big return to Bayside High. For one, the original show’s studio audience and canned laughter will be nixed. Instead, it will be a single-camera comedy in a similar vein to “The Office.” For another, the teens from the original are obviously all grown up — so some are now parents, and others are now pillars of their community.

The plot of the revival will follow Zack Morris (Gosselaar), now the governor of California, who finds himself in a political controversy after he closes too many of the state’s low-income schools. As an attempt to recover, he proposes sending the students who are impacted to well-funded schools such as Bayside.

This story includes new characters such as Zack’s son Mac (Mitchell Hoog, “Roswell, New Mexico”) and Jessie’s son Jamie (Belmont Cameli, “Empire”). A.C. Slater (Lopez) returns and is now a gym teacher at the school.

Veteran character actor John Michael Higgins will join the cast as Mr. Toddman, Bayside High’s new principal.

Aside from Gosselaar’s Zack Morris and Lopez’s A.C. Slater, returning characters and cast from the original series include Max (Ed Alonzo); Zack’s former flame, Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen); and Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley).

“Saved by the Bell” will air on NBC streamer Peacock on November 25.

Naya Rivera’s sister defends living with Ryan Dorsey, his son Josey

Naya Rivera's sister defends living with Ryan Dorsey, his son Josey

Naya Rivera’s sister spoke out in defense of her late sister’s ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey, moving in with her following Rivera’s death.

“In the darkest time of my life, the only thing that is important is my friends & family,” Nickayla, 25, posted on her Instagram Story. “Showing up for my nephew even though I can’t show up for myself.”

Nickayla said she was “not concerned” with the appearance of the decision, seemingly responding to social media users who found the decision a bit strange.

“I’m not concerned with the way things look because no one can see each agonizing moment we all endure,” she continued. “What matters most I’ve learned, is to show compassion, not to judge others, & never take a moment of life for granted.

“I hope you all can do the same.”

Nickayla, along with Dorsey’s parents, is helping raise his 5-year-old son Josey, whom 37-year-old Dorsey shared with the late “Glee” star. They’ve moved into a three-bedroom rental in the San Fernando Valley.

Rivera died on July 8 from drowning at age 33 while swimming with Josey in Lake Piru. Josey, who was found safe on their boat, later told investigators that he heard his mom yell “help” before succumbing to the currents.
