Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt Put Their 18-Year Relationship to a Close.

After denying a series of rumors about separating, the unexpected has happened: Jon Hamm and long-time girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt have ended their 18-year-long relationship. The couple, who never married, said they would “continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible.” The statement first appeared on the web site of People magazine. The couple released an official joint statement through their publicist Annett Wolf that says, “With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history.

Earlier this year, the “Mad Men” actor completed treatment for alcohol addiction and praised Westfeldt, an actress and filmmaker, for her support, Wolf said at the time. Martin Milner, whose wholesome good looks helped make him the star of two hugely popular 1960s TV series, “Route 66” and “Adam-12,” has died, the Associated Press reports.

He was 83. “Adam-12” co-star Kent McCord, who spoke to Milner’s children, said Milner died Sunday near the La Costa neighborhood of Carlsbad, Calif. Despite the movie’s premise Jon told The Daily Mail in 2012, “I don’t have a driving force to have a baby.” And on a separate interview for The New York Times, Jennifer said, “I’ve thought about this a lot lately. He said the family is doing well, but gave no other details. Milner, who began his career as a teen actor, shot to fame in 1960 with co-star George Maharis in the iconic TV drama “Route 66,” which found two restless young men roaming the highway author John Steinbeck had dubbed “The Mother Road” in a red Corvette convertible. The series was said to have been inspired by Jack Kerouac’s novel “On the Road” and it featured such weekly guest stars as Robert Redford, Alan Alda and Gene Hackman in some of their earliest roles. Maharis, who became ill with hepatitis and missed part of the third season, left “Route 66” at the end of that year amid rumors of a contract dispute.

In 1968 Milner signed on to another buddy series, “Adam-12.” This time he was Officer Pete Malloy, a veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department assisted by rookie cop Jim Reed, who was played by Kent McCord. “I had a long, long friendship with Marty and we remained friends up till the end,” said McCord on Monday. “He was one of the really true great people of our industry with a long, distinguished career…Wonderful films, wonderful television shows, pioneering shows like ‘Route 66.’ He was one of the great guys. Early film roles included “The Sands of Iwo Jima,” ‘’Marjorie Morningstar” and (as Marty Milner) “Sweet Smell of Success.” But USA Today reports that after her viral video “Dear Fat People” received outcry from online commenters and leaders in the body acceptance community, her YouTube and Google+ channels were temporarily disabled Sunday. “We literally broke the Internet… With comedy. #censorship” Arbour tweeted after her account was taken down. (It has since been reinstated.) The video remained posted at Facebook, where it has more than 18 million views and 175,000 likes. Whitney Way Thore, star of TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life, took issue with the video and posted a response of her own, which has gained about 50,000 views. “Fat shaming is a thing. It is the really nasty spawn of a larger parent problem called body shaming, which I’m fairly certain everybody on the planet, especially women, have experienced,” Thore says.

Filmmaker Tyler Perry has donated $200,000 to help build a home for a group of Tanzanian children with albinism who were mutilated for their body parts. Perry donated after watching a special featuring Elissa Montanti, a Staten Island woman who runs the nonprofit Global Medical Relief Fund for children affected by war and natural disasters. In an interview with Turin daily La Stampa, Bono said the photos of drowned 2-year-old Syrian refugee Aylan on a Turkish beach — and pictures of German children offering their toys to Syrian refugees — “will remain in the history of Europe.” In the black-and-white image, Smith wears a ring with the silhouette of an octopus — which just so happens to be the logo for Spectre, a diabolical crime syndicate in Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels that was last seen onscreen in 1971’s “Diamonds are Forever.” According to HitFix, the theme song for the upcoming “Spectre” is set to make its debut today. Summer blockbusters gave way to the small and highly targeted over a sleepy Labor Day weekend at the box office, with the the faith-based “War Room” leading the pack.
