Impostor shows up at comedian's home

Police in Fairfield, Conn., say they responded to comedian Lisa Lampanelli's home last week after her sister said she got a phone call from a woman claiming to be Lampanelli.

The woman said she was at her house, but was locked out and couldn't remember where the spare key was.

Police say the real Lisa Lampanelli was out of state at the time.

Officers found 56-year-old Anna Dominguez, of Lancaster, Pa., in a car in the driveway.

Police say Dominguez had the same hairstyle as the comedian and was wearing similar clothing.

Dominguez was charged with attempted burglary. A court clerk said Tuesday she had not posted a $500 bond and does not yet have an attorney.

She is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 7.

In April 2018, Ringwald wrote a column for The New Yorker about watching the movie a few years earlier with her then 10-year-old daughter. Her discomfort focuses on interactions that her character had with a "bad boy" portrayed by Nelson.

In an interview with The StarNews of Wilmington, Nelson says he thinks the 1985 movie is "a product of its time" and that he doesn't "see those problems that Molly sees."

The 59-year-old Nelson is in Wilmington to star in the play "Love Letters," which will be performed Saturday at Kenan Auditorium. His co-star in the two-person drama is Sheryl Lee, who played Laura Palmer in "Twin Peaks."

Chrisleys reach tax deal with Georgia

Reality television stars Todd and Julie Chrisley have settled allegations that they failed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in income taxes to the state of Georgia.

A spokesman for the couple, Allan Mayer, announced Tuesday that the couple had reached an agreement with the Georgia Department of Revenue.

The agreement signed by the Chrisleys on Sept. 27 credits them with tax refunds for some tax years and says they owed nothing in others. According to the settlement, the Chrisleys agreed to pay a little under $150,000 to resolve the claims.

Georgia Department of Revenue spokesman William Gaston said the department was not allowed to comment on confidential taxpayer information.

The "Chrisley Knows Best" stars have pleaded not guilty to separate federal tax evasion charges.
