The softly-spoken brother who backed the President until the end: Robert Trump shunned the spotlight until he threw his support behind Donald and fought to protect the family by suing niece Mary over her tell-all book

Robert Trump: The soft-spoken, easygoing brother who backed the president until the end

President Donald's younger brother, Robert Trump (pictured together top right in 1999), a businessman known for an even keel that seemed almost incompatible with the family name, died Saturday night at the age of 71. The youngest of the Trump siblings (bottom right l-r Donald, Fred Jr, Elizabeth, Maryanne and Robert) had remained close to the 74-year-old president and, as recently as June, filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Trump family that unsuccessfully sought to stop publication of a tell-all book by the president's niece, Mary (inset). Robert was married twice, first to socialite Blaine Trump (main) for 25 years until their 2007 divorce. The couple's split was widely reported in the tabloids following reports that Robert had been living with his mistress - and now wife - for two years. In early March of 2020, he married his longtime girlfriend, Ann Marie Pallan.

Pioneering female NFL sportscaster and Miss America-winner Phyllis George dies at 70 after long fight with blood disorder

Phyllis George, female sportscasting pioneer, dies at 70

Phyllis George, the former Miss America who became a female sportscasting pioneer on CBS's The NFL Today, has died at age 70. A family spokeswoman said George died Thursday at a Lexington, Kentucky, hospital after a long fight with a blood disorder she'd had since she was in her 30s. Her children, Lincoln Tyler George Brown and CNN White House correspondent Pamela Ashley Brown, released a joint statement about George's death. 'For many, Mom was known by her incredible accomplishments as the pioneering female sportscaster, 50th Miss America and first lady. But this was all before we were born and never how we viewed Mom,' George's children said in the statement. 'To us, she was the most incredible mother we could ever ask for, and it is all of the defining qualities the public never saw, especially against the winds of adversity, that symbolize how extraordinary she is more than anything else. The beauty so many recognized on the outside was a mere fraction of her internal beauty, only to be outdone by an unwavering spirit that allowed her to persevere against all the odds.' George is pictured in 2009 (left), after being named Miss America in 1971 (right) and while being a sportscaster on CBS The NFL Today in 1976 (inset).

Stuart Whitman, star of ‘The Comancheros’ and ‘The Longest Day,’ "Cimarron Strip" TV show dies at 92
1.jpg 

Stuart Whitman, a star of Westerns alongside John Wayne like “The Comancheros” and the war movie “The Longest Day,” died in his home Monday, his son told TMZ. Whitman was 92.

“Old Hollywood lost another one of its true stars. Stuart Whitman was known for his rugged roles and handsome charm. We were proud of him for his TV, film roles and his Oscar nomination, but what we will really remember is his exuberant love of his family and friends,” Whitman’s son Justin told TMZ.

TMZ says that Whitman had recently been in and out of the hospital due to skin cancer that seeped into his bloodstream.

One of Whitman’s most well known roles was in the short-lived ’60s TV series “Cimarron Strip,” where he played the tough, but fair Marshal Jim Crown. The show lasted just one season but solidified his reputation as a star of the Western genre. He’d later make cameos on “Walker, Texas Ranger,” “S.W.A.T.,” “Knight Rider” and “Fantasy Island.”

Whitman’s last on-screen role was the 2000 TV action movie “The President’s Man,” where he reunited with Chuck Norris.

I loved the Cimarron Strip TV show, by the way!   RIP!!!!!
