What’s the Buzz: Gandee, Dory, Jolie

3 April 2013 By Emily Hite, Columnist No Comments


“Buckwild” star Shain Gandee was found dead inside his car Monday morning alongside his uncle and friend. The three men left a bar at 3 a.m. Sunday morning and told acquaintances they were going “mudding” in Shain’s truck.  The car was found off the road sitting unevenly and partially submerged in deep mud. The county’s fire department had to deploy all terrain vehicles and a bulldozer to remove the truck. The three deaths have been ruled accidental with the cause being carbon monoxide poisoning. “Buckwild” was renewed for a second season, but filming has been suspended without any indication if this tragedy would force the show to be cancelled.


Disney and Pixar have just dropped one of the biggest sequel bombs to date: 10 years after its release, “Finding Nemo” will officially have a sequel, “Finding Dory.” It is long overdue for fans of the original, and the film isn’t scheduled for release until November 2015. Elle DeGeneres will be reprising her role of Dory, and when asked about the long wait she explained, “I’m not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating ‘Toy Story 3.’” The new storyline will reportedly pick up one year after the original “Finding Nemo” left off with both old and new characters. The film may even feature a change of scenery, leaving the Australian waters for the California coast. “Finding Nemo” took in $921 million worldwide and took home Pixar’s first Academy Award for best animated feature so the nearly three year wait may just be worth it for everyone.


Angelina Jolie has a jewelry line (of course she does), The Style of Jolie, and the profits are going to something that you might expect more from Oprah. Jolie is funding The Education Partnership for Children of Conflict that has recently opened an all-girls school in Afghanistan. The school is located outside of Kabul and according to Jolie, the location was selected because the particular area has a high refugee population and males are favored with regards to education. When talking about the venture Jolie explained to E! News, “Beyond enjoying the artistic satisfaction of designing these jewels, we are inspired by knowing our work is serving the mutual goal of providing for children in need.” About 200 to 300 girls are already enrolled in the program and the school is only projected to grow, as 100 percent of the jewelry lines proceeds will go to the foundation.
