    Martha Stewart's first Uber ride was not a good thing. Stewart ordered the 'most expensive version' Monday outside Tiffany's flagship store in New York City. As Stewart explained on Instagram , she wanted to be picked up on Fifth Avenue and 57th Street. Stewart wrote the first car did not show up and the second parked 'halfway down' the street where she 'could not see the license plate.' That car was pointed in the wrong direction, delaying her journey as the car snaked through midtown Manhattan traffic. But the worst part was the car 'was a mess inside and out!!!!!!!!' She posted a picture that showed debris on the floor and two water bottles. Uber says it was disappointed to hear about Stewart's first experience and has reached out to her and her team.
  • Many young boys grow up with superheroes adorning their walls. Jonah Hill grew up with a picture of Martin Scorsese on his. The actor related the poignant anecdote at a star-studded benefit Monday evening at the Museum of Modern Art, honoring the celebrated director both for his contributions to both cinema and to film restoration and preservation. 'You might not even understand how often just the image of you creates young people who want to be filmmakers every single day,' said Hill, who worked with Scorsese on 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and just released his directorial debut, 'Mid90s,' last month. Hill added: 'As far as I'm concerned that's the coolest thing in the entire world. Thank you for just existing, because I am only up here because you did what you did.' Also among the speakers at MoMA's annual film benefit, which raises funds to bring great works of film to the museum's collection, were Hollywood heavyweights Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, two of the actors most closely associated with Scorsese. DiCaprio, who's appeared in five Scorsese films including 'Shutter Island,' ''The Departed,' and 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' also went back to his youth to describe the influence Scorsese, 76, had on him. He told the audience how when he was just 15, and starting his journey as an actor, his father took him to a movie theater for inspiration. 'He pointed at the screen, and as the reels of 'Goodfellas' began to spin, he said, 'This is the epitome of modern filmmaking,'' DiCaprio recounted. ''This is someone who you may be lucky enough one day to work with, and when it comes to directors, Martin Scorsese is where the bar is set.'' The actor added that from that moment, 'I made it a goal, I made it a relentless ambition to work alongside the master we're celebrating here tonight.' The pair is about to start on its sixth collaboration, the crime thriller 'Killers of the Flower Moon.' DiCaprio also spoke of Scorsese as a lifelong teacher, from his constant on-set references to film history to his efforts to restore and preserve old films with The Film Foundation, which he founded in 1990. 'No one on earth has so relentlessly pioneered the salvation of movie history with such commitment the way Martin Scorsese has,' DiCaprio said. De Niro, who's made nine feature films with Scorsese, including classics like 'Taxi Driver,' ''Raging Bull' and 'Goodfellas,' spoke of the director's many years of friendship. 'Marty's gift for friendship is directly related to his many gifts for filmmaking,' the actor said. The director has, he said, 'a giant heart that understands and embraces every character he helps us create, and every story he tells.' De Niro also quipped to the crowd that Scorsese's first career ambition was to be a priest. 'My theory was that he changed when he realized that being a priest meant serving God, but being a director meant BEING God,' he said. Hill told the story of how Scorsese had instructed an actor in 'The Wolf of Wall Street' to punch him for real, because the fake punches were looking, well, fake. Hill noted that he had adopted that technique for 'Mid90s,' but Scorsese, when he came to the podium, jokingly admonished him. 'I wouldn't advise that for young filmmakers,' he said.

  • The Latest on the White House press and CNN reporter Jim Acosta (all times local): 4:10 p.m. The Trump administration will fully restore Jim Acosta's White House credentials, but has warned the CNN reporter that he must follow a series of rules at future news conferences. On Twitter, CNN said: 'Today the @WhiteHouse fully restored @Acosta's press pass. As a result, our lawsuit is no longer necessary.' The White House letter sent to Acosta Monday makes clear his credentials could be threatened again, stressing new rules for press conferences, including limiting each reporter to a single question with follow-ups at the discretion of the president. The White House revoked Acosta's pass after a news conference clash with President Donald Trump. A federal judge issued a temporary order restoring Acosta's pass last week. The White House quickly sent Acosta a letter threatening to take it away again when that order expired __ 11 a.m. The Trump administration has again targeted White House press credentials for CNN reporter Jim Acosta. After a federal judge ordered that Acosta's credentials be temporarily restored last week, the White House sent Acosta a letter saying it had made the 'preliminary decision' to suspend his pass. The White House said Acosta would continue to hold his credentials while the 14-day judge's order was in effect. The White House argues Acosta did not follow 'basic standards' when he scrapped with President Donald Trump at a news conference. The letter from Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Communications Director Bill Shine, says Trump is 'aware of this preliminary decision and concurs.

  • Peter Simon, a longtime photographer on Martha's Vineyard, has died at the age of 71. Family friend Mirabai Bush says Simon died Sunday of cardiac arrest at Martha's Vineyard Hospital. He had also battled lung cancer. Simon was the brother of singer Carly Simon, who also lives on the iconic Massachusetts island. The Martha's Vineyard Times reports that Simon was working for the newspaper as a freelance photographer at the time of his death. Simon spent his career photographing both celebrities on the island as well as everyday people. In the spring, he relaunched Vineyard Scenes, which featured photographs from local events and fundraisers. Simon, who also worked for the Vineyard Gazette, published several books and a yearly calendar with scenic island landscapes.
  • New York prosecutors pushed back Monday against Harvey Weinstein's latest attempt to have the criminal case against him dismissed, saying there is 'ample evidence' to move forward with the sexual assault charges against the former Hollywood producer. In new court filings, the Manhattan district attorney's office played down the witness coaching allegations against the lead detective in the case, saying the indictment against Weinstein should stand despite prosecutors' recent decision to dismiss one of the six counts. 'There is no possibility that this issue in any way impaired the integrity of the grand jury or prejudiced the defendant,' Assistant District Attorney Kevin Wilson wrote in the motion. Prosecutors also opposed Weinstein's request for an evidentiary hearing to probe allegations of police misconduct. 'In truth, the only reason the defendant wants a hearing is to provide a public circus that will further the public relations campaign the defendant has been waging from the outset of this case,' Wilson wrote. Weinstein lawyer Benjamin Brafman countered in a statement that 'it is they who created the circus with the DA and the NYPD calling each other liars.' Monday's back-and-forth came two weeks after Weinstein's lawyers asked a judge to jettison the entire case, citing evidence that Detective Nicholas DiGaudio told a witness to keep quiet when she raised doubts about the veracity of a sexual assault allegation against Weinstein. DiGaudio told the witness that 'less is more,' prosecutors acknowledged last month. Prosecutors also have disclosed an allegation that the same officer urged another Weinstein accuser to delete material from her cellphones before handing them over to prosecutors. The material did not pertain to Weinstein, prosecutors said, and ultimately was not deleted. Weinstein's attorneys have described DiGaudio as 'a serial obstructer' who was 'singularly hell-bent on concealing the truth.' The officer's conduct prompted the district attorney's office to dismiss a count that alleged Weinstein forced Lucia Evans to perform oral sex in 2004 when she was a college student and fledgling actress. The Associated Press generally does not identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they consent to being identified publicly, as Evans has done. Weinstein, 66, was originally charged with assaulting three women. He denies all allegations of nonconsensual sex. In their attempt to have the case dismissed, Weinstein's lawyers accused prosecutors of failing to show the grand jury evidence that they contend undermines the charges. Wilson, the assistant district attorney, countered Monday that prosecutors have no obligation to present to the grand jury evidence favorable to a defendant. 'A review of the grand jury minutes will reveal that evidence was presented properly and with correct legal instructions,' Wilson wrote in the filing. Brafman, the defense attorney, said he plans to file a reply to the prosecution's motion after Thanksgiving.
  • A public memorial service is planned in Oklahoma for singer-guitarist Roy Clark, who headlined the TV show 'Hee Haw' for nearly a quarter century. A 'celebration of life' service will be held Wednesday at Rhema Bible Church in the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow. Clark was 85 when he died last week at his home in Tulsa from complications of pneumonia. Clark was a guitar virtuoso known for hits including 'Yesterday When I was Young' and 'Honeymoon Feeling.' He also played the banjo, fiddle, mandolin, harmonica and other instruments. Clark was the 'Hee Haw' host or co-host for the variety show's entire 24-year run. He also was a frequent guest performer with top orchestras, including the Boston Pops, and was a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
  • Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was deemed a likely danger to the community and denied bail Monday after a prosecutor said there was evidence that he directed or participated in multiple acts of violence as part of a deadly gang. U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pitman concluded an hourlong hearing by citing 'troubling' corroborating evidence offered by a prosecutor to show that 6ix9ine directed or participated in multiple acts of violence over the last eight months. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Longyear said a backpack stolen during a gunpoint robbery in April was found during a raid at 6ix9ine's Brooklyn residence, along with an automatic pistol. 'The defendant is quite violent,' the prosecutor said of a man whose debut album, Day 69, was among the most downloaded records on iTunes. Longyear said 6ix9ine was captured on surveillance video as he sat in a car and filmed the scene in Times Square when his co-defendants carried out a violent robbery against a rival gang member. The prosecutor said he was also part of a video boasting about shots recently fired by a co-defendant in Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Longyear also said the rapper was a threat to flee because of his worldwide connections, hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and the knowledge that a conviction would bring a mandatory minimum sentence of 32 years in prison and as much as life. Pitman ordered 6ix9ine held until a Tuesday bail hearing, saying he was concerned about the danger to the community, particularly because the rapper could direct others to carry out acts of violence. 6ix9ine was among five people charged in an indictment containing racketeering and firearms charges. The indictment alleged that he participated in the July shooting of a bystander in Brooklyn and the gunpoint robbery of one of his gang's rivals last spring. His lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, said 6ix9nine — whose legal name is Daniel Hernandez — posed no threat and denies directing or playing any other role in violence. Lazzaro said his client had fired some of his co-defendants as part of his management and security team last week and was offered protection by federal agents on Saturday after some of them were overheard on wiretaps threatening his life. After the rapper refused protection, he was arrested on Sunday. 6ix9ine has been one of the most ascendant and controversial names in hip-hop in recent months. His album Day69: Graduation Day was among the top records on iTunes following its February release. He is also known for the multiplatinum hit 'Fefe' with Nicki Minaj, which peaked at No. 3 on the pop charts, and 'Stoopid,' featuring the incarcerated rapper Bobby Shmurda. But 6ix9ine also has had a series of run-ins with law enforcement and has publicly identified himself as a member of a violent New York gang, 9 Trey Bloods, which was mentioned throughout the indictment. Prosecutors said the gang carried out acts of murder, robbery and narcotics trafficking in Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn since at least 2013. The indictment said each gang member was required to participate in at least two acts of racketeering conspiracy. Those acts could include murder, robbery, extortion and drug distribution, the court papers said. The 22-year-old recently pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in Brooklyn Criminal Court in connection with a May traffic stop. In a 2015 case in New York, 6ix9ine was sentenced to probation for his involvement in a sexually explicit video of a 13-year-old girl. The video, posted on social media, showed the girl performing a sex act on another man while 6ix9ine 'stands behind the child making a thrusting motion with his pelvis and smacking her on her buttocks,' according to court documents.
  • The Trump administration on Monday abruptly dropped its effort to bar CNN reporter Jim Acosta from the White House, but warned he could have his credentials pulled again if he doesn't follow guidelines governing journalists' behavior. The White House said reporters would be permitted one question each if called upon at news conferences and allowed follow-ups only at the discretion of the president. In a letter to Acosta, White House communications director Bill Shine and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said they will be forced to reconsider the decision 'if unprofessional behavior occurs.' CNN said that, as a result, it has dropped its lawsuit against the White House filed on Acosta's behalf. 'Thanks to everyone for their support,' Acosta tweeted. 'As I said last Friday ... let's get back to work.' The White House initially revoked Acosta's credentials after he and Trump tangled verbally during a Nov. 7 press conference. The administration's initial reasoning was that Acosta had manhandled a White House intern seeking to take his microphone, but that fell apart after Sanders distributed a doctored video sped up to make Acosta look more aggressive than he actually was. Instead, the White House focused on behavior they deemed disrespectful to the president. Acosta and CNN have been frequent targets of a president who has derided coverage of his administration as 'fake news' and called the media the enemy of the people. CNN filed suit to get Acosta's credentials restored, arguing that the action violated the constitutional right to freedom of the press and that he had been denied due process. In Washington, D.C. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly cited the due process argument last Friday in granting Acosta a two-week injunction to get back to work. The White House initially fought back, saying it had made a preliminary decision to keep Acosta out when the two weeks were up. But after CNN requested a hearing, Shine and Sanders changed course. 'The view from here is that White House interaction with the press is, and generally should be, subject to kind of a natural give and take,' Shine and Sanders wrote. 'President Trump believes strongly in the First Amendment and interacts with the press in just such a way. It would be a great loss for all if, instead of this give-and-take, and instead of relying on the professionalism of White House journalists, we were compelled to devise a lengthy and detailed code of conduct.' Still, they did outline rules compelling journalists at news conferences to physically surrender microphones if the president hasn't granted them a follow-up question, and said a failure to abide by these standards could result in them losing their passes. The White House Correspondents Association said the White House did the right thing in restoring Acosta's pass. The WHCA said it had no role in crafting any of the new procedures, and objected to one. 'For as long as there have been White House press conferences, White House reporters have asked follow-up questions,' said Olivier Knox, WHCA president. 'We fully expect this tradition will continue.' In Acosta, the media had an imperfect First Amendment champion. Even some critics in the media world have said he occasionally seems more interested in making a point than in asking a question. In the Nov. 7 news conference, he and Trump briefly argued over the president's contention that a group of Latin American migrants headed to the southern U.S. border represented an invasion. Yet dozens of news organizations filed briefs supporting CNN in its case against the White House. 'We are not the enemy of the people,' Acosta tweeted Monday. 'I am not your enemy. You are not my enemy. It is wrong to call your fellow Americans the enemy. We are all on the same team. We are all Americans.' The administrations got in one last twist Monday. CNN was informed of the decision to drop the case in a letter to Acosta — delivered after his competitor, Fox News Channel's John Roberts, tweeted the 'SCOOP' that the White House would not seek to revoke his pass. ___ Lucey reported from Washington.
