'Knots Landing' stars still a sister act

Nearly 40 years after first forging their friendship while working together on the nighttime soap "Knot's Landing," the three main actresses on it are now more than just friends — they're a sister act.

Joan Van Ark, Michele Lee and Donna Mills still regularly meet, joke and dine together.

December will mark the 40th anniversary of the debut of "Knots Landing." It aired on CBS from 1979-93.

Might there be plans for an onscreen reunion to mark "Knots'" 40th? Van Ark joked about the characters: "They'll all have facelifts, I hope."

Hollywood stars open wallets to Buttigieg

A-list celebrities seem to be opening their hearts — or at least their wallets — to Pete Buttigieg.

The South Bend, Indiana, mayor was a virtual unknown months ago. But he used breakout town hall performances, viral moments and his biography as a millennial, gay military veteran and a former Rhodes scholar to get the attention of the entertainment industry and rake in cash for his 2020 Democratic presidential campaign.

Among the more than 50 celebrities who gave Buttigieg money during the second quarter are rocker Joan Jett ($150), recording industry mogul David Geffen ($5,600), fashion icon Anna Wintour ($2,800), designer Tom Ford ($5,600), actress Sharon Stone ($5,600) and comedian Ellen DeGeneres ($5,600). They helped fuel his field-leading $24.8 million fundraising haul.

During the second fundraising quarter, Buttigieg kept up an aggressive fundraising schedule, often hitting multiple events in one day, including one held by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who gave him $2,800.
