Sarah Jessica Parker can barely remember being in Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus may remain one of your favourite childhood movies, but as far as Sarah Jessica Parker is concerned, the film barely made a dent on her radar.

While speaking to Stephen Colbert this week, the actress revealed that she remembers next to nothing about the 1993 movie.

Now, to be fair, she’s aware she starred in it, so that’s a start.

I don’t have a lot of memories. I mean, I remember the filming of it. I just don’t remember what the movie’s about as much.

She has it on good authority that there were two others witches in the mix.

Three witches, I’ve been told that, and apparently my character’s not very bright.

And her final assessment? Well, it’s not exactly something you’d hear in Inside The Actor’s Studio, let’s put it like that.

But I fly and sing and I think I like to suck the life … I think I like to kill children? I liked making the movie and I liked flying.

OK great, thanks for that SJP.

Singer Demi Lovato has been hospitalized after suffering an apparent drug overdose Source: Birdie Thompson

Demi Lovato will remain in treatment for the rest of the year

After her hospitalisation in July following an apparent overdose, Demi Lovato has been focussed solely on her recovery.

And according to recent reports, the performer will remain in treatment until the end of 2018, at least.

Speaking to ET, a source said: “Demi is taking her sobriety extremely serious, and knows she has a long road ahead of her.”

At the end of the day, Demi is doing this for herself. She has to stay sober for her, but every time she has family or friends visit her it reminds her of all the other important people in her life that she needs to fight for as well.

After being discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre over the summer, Demi entered a rehabilitation facility and is continuing to seek support from specialists in the field of mental health and addiction.

“Demi is thankful she’s still alive and is doing whatever she can to never get to that point again,” the source added.

Megyn Kelly has broken her silence after her show’s cancellation

In case you missed it, US broadcaster, Megyn Kelly, was on the receiving end of considerable criticism last week after claiming not to understand why ‘black face’ is considered offensive.

Her show was subsequently cancelled, and yesterday she gave an insight into the fall-out of her remarks.

Taking to Twitter, the 47-year-old said she has been unable to avoid press intrusion in the vicinity of her home.

“For a week paparazzi has been lurking outside my home day & nite.(sic) Finally today I took my kids to school,” she wrote.

I went out alone 1st, offered them donuts &begged them to just take their pic of me & to leave my kids alone when they emerged. All were nice. Except the Dailymail.

The disgraced broadcaster’s series of tweets have been – unsurprisingly – met with a mixed response.
