This week we have things to do before 2017, tributes to Carrie Fisher; George Michael; and Debbie Reynolds, skincare resolutions for the new year, and more.

We were devastated to hear of Carrie Fisher’s passing this week, and even more devastated to learn of her mother, Debbie Reynolds’ passing the next day. Buzzfeed covers some of the awesome things Carrie said in her effort to erase the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Park Hae-jin a captive in chains for JTBC’s Man to Man

More stills have been released for JTBC’s upcoming action-thriller-melo drama Man to Man featuring lead Park Hae-jin (Cheese in the Trap) in character, along with behind-the-scenes glimpses of the actor glued to his script. I don’t know why he’s chained up and locked in a cell, but these stills look a lot more thrilling than I’d expected, and not in a bad way.

Man to Man is a 100 percent pre-produced drama written by Kim Won-seok (Descended From the Sun) and directed by PD Lee Chang-min (Remember–Son’s War). The story revolves around Park Hae-jin as a secret agent undercover as a bodyguard to a top Hallyu star played by Park Sung-woong (Remember–Son’s War). Kim Min-jung (Master of Trade–Inn 2015) plays the sunny manager and president of the actor’s fan club, who grows suspicious of the mysterious bodyguard protecting her beloved star.

Witnesses in Robert Durst’s Trial ‘Concerned About Their Safety’ Because of Heir’s History, Says Prosecutor

Some witnesses in the pending trial for real estate heir and alleged murderer Robert Durst are “concerned about their safety,” a Los Angeles prosecutor said Wednesday during a hearing.

Los Angeles County Deputy District attorney John Lewin told a judge he was worried about the safety of the witnesses because of three deaths allegedly linked to Durst.

“Two of the three were murdered because they are witnesses,” alleged Lewin.

Citing Durst’s purported financial resources, Lewin added, “Witnesses are concerned about their safety.”

Defense attorney David Chesnoff scoffed at Lewin’s statement, pointing to Durst’s frail health.

“Suggesting somehow that a man in a wheelchair is somehow a threat … is just hyperbole,” Chesnoff said.

Durst is charged in the December 2000 death of friend Susan Berman. Prosecutors believe Durst killed her because she knew too much about the 1982 disappearance of Durst’s first wife, Kathleen, whose body has never been found.

In 2001, Durst admitted he killed his Texas neighbor, Morris Black, but he claimed self-defense. He was later acquitted for the decapitation killing.

Lewin told the judge that he wanted to interview two witnesses – an elderly man and a secret witness – in February before the preliminary hearing.

Also, during the hearing, the judge allowed a special master to determine whether any papers seized by authorities after Durst’s arrest were subject to attorney-client privilege.

Some of the papers seized were examined by filmmaker Andrew Jarecki for the HBO documentary, The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.

During a police interview with Durst, Lewin said he was surprised that Durst allowed the filmmakers full access to his files, which included documents between him and his attorneys.

“I was trying to be-and I just figured-and-and the way they made All Good Things, it made me a sympathetic person, as opposed to a super-aggressive person – which is pretty much correct,” Durst said during the police interview.

He added, “That they would see me as an acceptable human being, as opposed to all of this other stuff. And that I couldn’t get them to see me as an acceptable human being if I was covering things up.”

During the police interview, Durst also said he was high on meth while filming The Jinx and said doctors told him he will likely only live five more years.

Shia LaBeouf Says His Outlook on Marriage Has Changed

Shia LaBeouf Says His Outlook on Marriage Has Changed

Shia LaBeouf is a newly married man and now the actor is opening up about how being a husband has changed his outlook on marriage.

“It’s better on the other side,” the 30-year-old actor told E! News. “I’ve been lied to my whole life. You always hear these people who are all cynical, like, ‘Ah, man, once you get married everything changes.’ But for the better though!”

Shia was asked about holiday traditions he and wife Mia Goth will celebrate together.

“I’m about to create some new ones,” Shia said. “My mom will be involved, her mom will be involved…I’ll probably have to do Hanukkah and Christmas and Kwanza and the whole nine.”

Pictured here: Shia stopping at a gas station to refuel his truck on Thursday (December 1) in Los Angeles.
