Luciano Passirani made racist comment on TV programmeTelelombardia says he will not appear on the show againAn Italian TV pundit has been suspended for saying that the only way to stop Romelu Lukaku is to give “him 10 bananas to eat”.

‘I’d ask my mum: why do you drink?’ Andie MacDowell on childhood and Hollywood
She learned responsibility young, caring for her mother – then became a stunningly successful model and screen star. The actor talks about ageing on screen, why she eschews drugs, and her pride in her daughters’ acting careersAndie MacDowell’s career as a successful model, who went on to become a successful actor, almost ended before it began. It was 1979, in the middle of the Studio 54 era, when she moved to New York. She was 21 years old, had just been signed by the Elite model agency and appeared to have the world at her feet. But she soon wanted to go back to her home town. “There was a lot of cocaine around,” she says. “I had a small experience at the very beginning and hated it. I hated it! It was only, like, a month. I really didn’t like the way it felt. It didn’t make me feel good and I couldn’t sleep. I actually went into my agency and said I wanted to go home, and they said: ‘You need new friends. You’re around the wrong people.’”Who was she hanging out with? “I don’t even remember, honestly,” she says. “I wasn’t around famous people at that point. It was not what I intended to do.” John Casablancas, the founder of Elite, flew with her to Paris, “and this young man showed up at the agency who didn’t drink, smoke or do drugs, and it was like, I had a boyfriend.” Continue reading...
