Multiple sources confirm to TVLine that Chevy Chase dropped the N-word on the set of the NBC comedy Friday afternoon in the presence of his African-American co-stars Yvette Nicole Brown and Donald Glover. According to an insider, the acting vet was struggling with his character’s dialogue and, in a moment of frustration, uttered the racial epithet. The slur was not directed at Brown and Glover specifically, maintains another source close to the production, who adds that Chase has grown increasingly unhappy with the dark direction of his character, the bigoted Pierce Hawthorne. But it nonetheless caused enough of a stir to briefly interrupt production. Chase eventually summoned the cast and crew together to issue a formal apology.
Whoopi Goldberg defended him today on The View and Chevy has apologized.
“I watched him (Clinton) charm my wife one night. He’d just had (quadruple-bypass) surgery and we were at a fundraiser in Hollywood. She asked him how was he was feeling, and he started explaining the whole procedure to her and how his life had changed. And he was holding her hand and kind of rubbing her upper arm. And she was mesmerised! As soon as I left, I was like, ‘So, you want to go home with him now or what?’ She’s like, ‘He had me. I was done. I get it now.’ He just rocked her.”
Lindsay Lohan’s dad Michael tried to stage an intervention for her over the weekend and now she is trying to attain an order of protection against him.

““Paul Thomas Anderson was getting ready to make the Master and he called me and we met … When he started talking about the role he said ‘Do you feel like you can do this?’ And I said ‘Yeah, totally. Look, I think you’re like the best American director. I feel confident. I know I can do this.’ And he said to me ‘But I want this to scare you. I want this role, going on this journey to scare you.’ And I was like ‘Scare?! I know I can do it. And so, incredible movie, needless to say I didn’t get the part. I guess I wasn’t scared enough or something, or whatever reason I didn’t get it.”

“We went to therapy,” Fergie said when asked if the couple ever thought of breaking up. “The whole thing just became a positive for us … Our marriage today — I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
Duhamel expressed similar sentiments later in the interview: “Now, I’m actually happy that all that happened, because we wouldn’t be as strong as we are now,” said Josh, who has admitted to visiting a strip club, but has always denied the cheating claims. “As much anger as a carried about it before, I’m actually thankful that it did happen, because in a lot of ways it made me straighten my ass out.”
