Actor Peter Fonda apologized this week for a tweet on the border crisis in which he wrote, “We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles,” a reference to the president’s 12-year-old son. Fonda, 78, said doing so would test whether Melania Trump would “stand up to the giant a--hole she is married to.” After he was widely criticized and the Secret Service was notified, Fonda said he was “distraught” over the president’s policy of separating immigrant families at the border but had gone “way too far,” calling his tweets “highly inappropriate and vulgar.” Donald Trump Jr. called Fonda “sick” and urged Sony to halt the release of a new film, Boundaries, in which Fonda plays a role. Sony Picture Classics said the tweet was “abhorrent,” adding that Fonda plays a “very minor role” in the film, which was released as planned.
Heather Locklear was arrested for punching a police officer and kicking a paramedic, just days after she was released from a psychiatric hospital. Police arrived at the home of the actress, 56, following a late-night disturbance call from a family member. Locklear was reportedly intoxicated, and punched an officer trying to separate her from the family member. She then kicked an EMT helping her onto a gurney. Locklear, who rose to fame in the ’80s soap opera Dynasty, was involuntarily hospitalized for three days two weeks ago, after making a series of violent threats and attacking her parents when they tried to intervene. In February, she was arrested for domestic violence following a fight with her fiancé, but the charges were dismissed.
Donald Trump Jr. and Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle made their relationship official during a trip to Montana, after weeks of rumors. The president’s eldest child and Guilfoyle, who co-hosts The Five, went fly fishing and hunting after Trump Jr. appeared at the Montana Republican Party’s annual convention. The couple posted a series of romantic photos on Instagram during their weekend getaway, with Guilfoyle posing in a camouflage “TRUMP” hat. “It doesn’t get much prettier than this,” Trump Jr., 40, captioned a photo of Guilfoyle, 49, on the Stillwater River. In March, Vanessa Trump, with whom Trump Jr. has five children, filed for divorce. ■
