on

Who is Mary Cheney?

American political activist Mary Claire Cheney was born in Madison, Wisconsin USA on 14 March 1969, making Pisces her zodiac sign. She’s perhaps known best for being a daughter of Richard Bruce ‘Dick’ Cheney, who’s an American politician and businessman, and who served as the US Vice President under President George W. Bush from 2001 through 2009.

Education and early life

Mary and her older sister Elizabeth Lynne ‘Liz’ Cheney were raised in McLean, Virginia by their father and mother Lynne Ann Cheney, who’s an American author, former talk-show host and scholar; Elizabeth’s today an American politician and lawyer.

Mary studied at McLean High School and was into a number of activities during her time there, as she took creative writing lessons, appeared in school plays and practiced dancing. Upon matriculating in 1987, Mary enrolled at Colorado College, which her mother and sister had previously attended, and she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1991; she also holds a business degree from the University of Denver, which she earned in 2002.

Mary’s career

Mary was amongst the first employees of the professional baseball team Colorado Rockies, working in promotions.

She then joined the brewery and beer company Coors Brewing Company as their public relations manager, and helped them end their employees’ national gay boycott as she was their gay outreach co-ordinator.

Mary eventually began working for her father as his close confidant and campaign aide, and was in July 2003 chosen to work on Bush-Cheney’s 2004 presidential re-election campaign as the director of vice-presidential operations.

She then spent some time working at AOL as their video president of practices and standards, quitting in 2007.

Love life and marriage

Mary and non-celebrity American woman Heather Poe have been together since 1992.

Mary’s since been a supporter of same-sex marriage, and has encouraged her father to approve of it. She gave birth to her and Heather’s son in May 2007, and to their daughter on 18 November 2009; the two women married on 22 June 2012 in Washington, D. C., while the family of four’s today living in Great Falls, Virginia.

In 2013, Mary’s sister Liz was running for Senate in Wyoming, and stated that she didn’t support same-sex marriage; this came as a shock to Mary, who stated that she wouldn’t support her sister’s candidacy. The sisters didn’t speak to each other for a while, and it was in 2021 that Liz stated in an interview that the two reconciled after Liz had admitted that she was wrong.

Mary’s yet to speak about other women whom she’s dated, she’s married to Heather Poe as of May 2023, and they have two children together.

Who is her father Dick?

Richard Bruce ‘Dick’ Cheney was born in Lincoln, Nebraska USA, on 30 January 1941, meaning that Aquarius is his zodiac sign. He’s regarded as the most powerful vice president in US history, but ended his career in politics as a rather unpopular figure, as only 13 percent of people supported him.

Dick was raised in Lincoln by his mother who was a professional softball player, and father who worked for the US Department of Agriculture as a soil conservation agent. Dick studied at Calvert Elementary School prior to moving to Casper, Wyoming with his family, where he attended Natrona County High School. He matriculated in 1959 and then enrolled at Yale University, however, Dick found it hard to fit in there, and thus transferred to the University of Wyoming, from which he eventually graduated with a Master of Arts degree in political science; he then began his doctoral studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, but didn’t complete them.

He was to be drafted by the US Army during the Vietnam War, but received five draft deferments, managing to evade joining the Army until he turned 26, when he was no longer eligible for the draft.

He launched his career as a politician in 1969, when he became an intern for the late American politician William Albert Steiger, who was at that time a congressman. In December 1974, Dick was made White House Deputy Chief of Staff and Assistant to the President, holding the position for a year.

He was elected to represent Wyoming in the US House of Representatives in 1978, and was re-elected five times, thus holding the position for 11 years.

From March 1989 through January 1993, he served as Secretary of Defense; Dick directed the Operation Desert Storm in the Middle East, and the US invasion of Panama – now-former US President George W. Bush presented Dick with a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1991.

From 1 October 1995 through 25 July 2000, he worked for the Fortune 500 company Halliburton as their CEO and chairman of the board.

He became Bush’s vice president in 2001, and had to keep his distance from Bush after the 9/11 attacks because of safety reasons; for nearly two and a half hours on the morning of 29 June 2002, he served as acting president while Bush was undergoing a colonoscopy. Dick played an instrumental role in justifying a renewed war against Iraq.

He and Bush were re-elected in 2004, and Dick remained vice president until 2009; he served as acting president once again on 21 July 2007, for two hours during which Bush was undergoing a medical procedure.

Although Dick then retired from politics, he still occasionally organized private fundraisers for Republican presidential candidates. The documentary movie about Dick’s life “The World According to Dick Cheney” was released on 15 March 2013.

He and his wife Lynn have been married since 1964; she earned her PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Published

on

Who is Sophia Rose Stallone?

Sophia Rose Stallone was born on 27 August 1996, in Miami, Florida, USA, and is a model, but best known to the public for being the daughter of actor Sylvester Stallone an his third wife, former model Jennifer Flavin. Her father is known for appearing in numerous popular films during his career, most notably the “Rocky” series, in which he portrayed the titular boxer in a series of films, and as the titular “Rambo” in another series.

The Net Worth of Sophia Rose Stallone

As of early-2020, Sophia Rose Stallone’s net worth is estimated to be over $500,000, thanks mostly through a successful career as a model.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CATiXKbhQka/

While she’s gained some big contracts through modeling work, she plans to engage in business endeavors which can potentially elevate her wealth. She probably benefits from the success of her father as well with Stallone having a net worth of over $400 million, accumulated from being a part of some of the most successful film franchises in history.

Early Life

Sophia Rose was born with a small heart defect – it was discovered by doctors that she had a hole in her heart, which led to open heart surgery as a newborn to amend it before it could get any more complicated.

She grew up in Miami alongside two sisters, and with two half-brothers though they aren’t as close, being from her father’s previous marriages.

Due to her heart condition, she lived a mostly strict lifestyle, with much of her food controlled while she wasn’t allowed to engage in physical activities as her heart was still developing. She grew close to her father during this time, who focused on teaching all his offspring correct speech, as it is a problem that he had to deal with all his life.

Education and Career

Sophia Rose did some physical activities with her father, but kept it toned down to avoid any unnecessary problems.

After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at the University of Southern California where she took up a degree in Art History, but later changed her mind and shifted to Communications with a minor in Entrepreneurship. While she grew close to her father, she set her sights on following a career similar to that of her mother.

After completing her studies, she began looking for professional modeling work. She had an edge to begin with being the daughter of a former model, and a Hollywood star. She had appeared on television with her sisters numerous times, and her mother taught her more about the fashion industry.

Eventually, she started working on photoshoots and catwalk events, leading her to be featured on the cover of “Harper’s Bazaar”. In 2017, she was then selected to be an ambassador of the Golden Globe Awards, joining her sisters as she was named Miss Golden Globe to complement her duties. In recent months, she has expressed a desire to follow her mother in becoming an entrepreneur once her modeling career is done. She is inspired by the likes of Kylie Jenner ,who became highly successful in business with her focus on the beauty industry.

Father – Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester grew up in Manhattan, New York, USA where his mother worked as a women’s wrestling promoter while his father was a beautician. He is of Italian descent through his father, and of Jewish and French descent from her mother’s side. From a young age, he suffered from partial paralysis on his face due to complications during his delivery as a baby. These features would become a few of his most iconic, as he developed a career in entertainment.

He attended Lincoln High School and later went to Charlotte Hall Military Academy. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at Miami Dade College and then completed his studies at the University of Miami.

While briefly living in Switzerland, he gained his first professional acting role in “Downhill Racer”, though it was uncredited. It inspired him to pursue a career in acting though he didn’t get any roles for a while leaving him nearly broke and homeless. This persuaded him to appear in his first feature, the notorious pornographic film “The Party at Kitty and Stud’s”, but which didn’t include pornographic scenes compared to today’s standards.

The Success of Sylvester Stallone

With his return to the US, Sylvester began taking more roles which would eventually lead him to envision film projects.He wrote and starred in the film “Rocky”, creating the role of the boxer Rocky Balboa which elevated him to stardom.

He would continue making films in the franchise and then created another one, playing John Rambo in the “Rambo” films. Both franchises have had numerous iterations during his career, continuing the story.

“Rocky” remains the most successful, as he transitioned the character from boxer to mentor in “Creed” and “Creed II”, taking care of the child of his late mentor. In 2010 he wrote and directed “The Expendables” films, which are noted for featuring various popular action stars from the 1980s to the 1990s. For his work, he’s won numerous awards including a Golden Globe, and been nominated three times for an Academy Award.

His “Rocky” films have been so iconic, that the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art have been nicknamed the Rocky Steps as he was seen training there in a montage in the film.

Personal Life

Sophia Rose was last reported to be in a relationship with soccer player Connor Spears, whom she met while a student at the University of California. It is not known if they are still together as she has not posted any photos of him for a very long time. She enjoys spending her free time with her family, as they are very close. She also goes to a lot of fashion events and is very interested in art. She also enjoys the occasional travel, going to resort locations or sports events.

Sean Edward Hartman’s Wiki: Phil Hartman’s Son & Family

Published

on

Introduction

Sean Edward Harman is an actor and artist. He is also the son of the deceased Phil Hartman and Brynn Hartman, actually best known as a result of the tragic death of his parents, whereby his mother Brynn Hartman committed suicide shortly after murdering her husband. Sean was only nine at the time of this occurring, which therefore shaped his life.

Early Life

Sean Edward Hartman was born on the 17th June 1989 (age currently 31) in Sunset, Vancouver, British Colombia in Canada.

His zodiac sign is Gemini, and he now has joint American-Canadian nationality. He was raised in Los Angeles, California as it was close to the television production his father, Phil Hartman was working at and involved with.

Sean’s heritage from his father’s side is English, German and Irish. On his mother’s side it is more of a real mix – English, Scottish, French Canadian, Danish, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian and Mexican.

Phil Hartmann, Sean’s father, was a well known and loved Canadian screenwriter, graphic designer, actor and comedian, regularly appearing on the NBC comedy show “Saturday Night Live” (SNL), completing his eighth and final season on SNL in February 1998.

He was also a voiceover artist, best known for his work voicing many of “The Simpsons” characters, as well as being the voice for Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo.

Phil was married three times, first to Gretchen Lewis from 1970-1972, then Lisa Strain from 1982-1985, and shortly afterwards met his future third wife and Sean’s mother Brynn, an aspiring model on a blind date; they married in 1987. Sean has one younger sibling, Birgen Anika who was born in February 1992.  Both of Sean’s parents suffered from alcohol and substance abuse issues, as the impact of fame apparently effected both parents negatively. As a result of this, the early years of Sean’s childhood were not the most peaceful or stable.

On the 28th May 1998, the infamous suicide murder event took place that changed Sean and his sister’s life forever. After attending a restaurant in Los Angeles, Brynn Hartman shot Phil Hartmann three times whilst he was sleeping in bed. After admitting to a friend what she had done, she locked herself in the bathroom and shot herself in the head. This murder-suicide left Sean and his sister Birgen orphans; Sean was nine at the time, and his younger sister Birgen, six. They were both in the house whilst this happened, which was therefore obviously a deeply traumatic event for them both. Afterwards they were taken to a park by a family friend, who could tell they were in shock. They apparently announced their sadness that their mother ‘wouldn’t be able to take her to do all the fun things she’d promised’.

Much of Hollywood mourned the loss of Phil. In an attempt to remove the children from a media circus, they were sent to live in the Midwest with a maternal aunt, Katherine Wright and her husband Mike; the couple didn’t have children of their own. They took custody of the children, and raised them outside of Los Angeles, apparently with the children using a different last name during their childhood in order to “shield them from the media and allow them to grow up in relative obscurity”. First they lived in Eau Claire, a community in northern Wisconsin, and later in Edina, Minnesota. Later on, the children went to live with a paternal relative, their uncle and Phil’s brother John.

Early education, career, hobbies/interests

Once in school, it became clear that Sean was an artistic character just like his father had been before him.

He attended Edina High faculty for high school. During his time here he took part in artistic endeavours such as creating and illustrating the poster for the short film ‘Kimura’s Vengeance’. Sean had a clear passion for music from a young age, and was a member of several bands, one such being ‘Metamorphic Mexico’, of which there are black and white photos available.

After high school he attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design which he later graduated from, after which he interned at several artistic companies, pursuing his dream of staying within the artistic world.

Career

Sean is an actor, writer, a graphic art designer, a voice artist, artist and a comedian.

Advertisement

He has used his natural interest and passion with the arts to create a career that has expanded in different directions within the artistic realm. He has had various illustration and graphic design jobs, although none of them are well known to the public realm.

He is the keyboard player in the band ‘Moonstone Continuum’ which perform in the US. He is currently performing Stand Up Comedy with the Cleveland Comedy club as he can be seen promoting on his Instagram account. He is relatively active on Instagram, as @sean_hartman.

Sean currently resides in Oakland, California.

Partner

Sean is currently single, although he is very private about his personal life. He doesn’t comment on this, post about it, or make any public statements that could lead to further indications of his relationship status.

Other relationships

Sean is still close with his sister Birgen, after attending her marriage to Brandon in 2018. Birgen and Branden became engaged in 2015 and were married in 2018 in a beautiful ceremony in Italy. There are photos of this ceremony, which looked like a fairy tale occasion for Birgen. Sean remains a supportive and close brother to his sister and only sibling. Birgen continues to live outside of LA, stating that her love of nature compels her to lead a more rural lifestyle.

Birgen was featured in SNL’s 40th anniversary special show, reuniting with many of her father’s old friends; Sean wasn’t in attendance.

Unlike as children, today both proudly use their real last name ‘Hartman’.

Net Worth

Sean Edward Hartman’s current estimated net worth stands at $1 million. He and his sister were both left with an inheritance from their late parents, who had planned ahead in the event of their death, so left behind an estate of an estimated worth $1.23 million. This was to be awarded to the children in parts – 25% each after they attained a bachelor’s degree, and the other 25% each upon them turning 30.

Furthermore, sources suggest that Sean is currently making $150,000 to $200,000 yearly on an average salary through his various graphic design work and artistic endeavours.

Physical characteristics

Sean Edward Hartman is tall, with brown or black hair, and green eyes.

The Untold Truth Of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Daughter – Annie Guest

Published

on

Annie Guest is an American Dance Director, and one of the adopted children of popular American actress, author, and activist Jamie Lee Curtis.

Early Life and Family

Annie Guest was born on 13 December 1986, in Los Angeles, California USA, and is one of the two children adopted by Jamie Lee Curtis and British-American Christopher Guest, a musician, comedian, screenwriter, and director.  After having learned from the doctors that they couldn’t bear children due to infertility, they immediately decided to go through an adoption process.  Annie came from an open adoption, where both her biological parents and adoptive parents openly discussed the adoption.

Her brother Thomas was adopted nine years later thru a closed arrangement, in which no one knew certain details of the adoption.

Both sides of her adoptive parents came from incredible bloodline. Her father, Christopher, currently holds the English title of the 5th Baron Haden-Guest of the Great Saling, Country of Essex in England. Her grandfather was Christopher William Graham Guest who was appointed Lord of Appeal in Ordinary, an active member of the UK House of Lords.  When the elder Christopher died, her father inherited the title and attended the upper house of the Parliament of the UK regularly until a new law was enacted – the House of Lords Act 1999 prohibited peer heritage as a way to gain a seat in the House of Lords.

Advertisement

Her father still retains the title, but is no longer a part of the English parliament. Also, because of their adoption, she and her brother are ineligible to inherit the English title – the next in line is their adoptive uncle.

Annie’s mother, Jamie Lee, has Hollywood royalty lineage. Her grandparents were actors Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, who both earned several prestigious acting nominations in their heyday. Her grandfather was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1958’s “The Defiant One,” and her grandmother was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in one of Alfred Hitchcock’s popular novels turned into film, “Psycho.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/BY8uK3PlGKh/

Her grandfather only met her when she was two years old, as her mother had a difficult relationship with him. Tony was an absentee father for a time when Jamie was growing up.

Annie grew up under the prying eyes of the media in Hollywood, as her mother would constantly bring her to movie sets and red carpet events. She would not be able to escape the public’s interest as her mother was part of many hit box office movies including the Halloween franchise series (1978, 1981, 1998, 2002, 2018) from which she gained the title “Scream Queen;” “True Lies” (1994) with Arnold Swarzenegger; “Forever Young” (1992) with Mel Gibson; and “Freaky Friday” (2003) with Lindsay Lohan.

Her father may not be as famous as her mother, but it doesn’t mean he wasn’t successful as an artist.

Christopher won a Primetime Emmy Award in 1976 for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy-Variety or Music Special for the “The Lily Tomlin Special.” He also received a Grammy award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture or Other Visual Media, with the song “A Mighty Wind” in 2003.

Annie’s interest in dancing started at the very young age of three, and it didn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Having two successful parents in the field of arts lured her into exploring her artistic side. Her parents saw her passion for it and enrolled her in the dance school, “MNR Dance Factory,” when she was eight. By the age of 16, she was teaching other people how to dance, and from then on she participated in many dance competitions locally and internationally, in which she won several awards.

Educational Background

Little else is known about her primary and secondary schooling, but she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts major in Dance from the Kenyon College in Los Angeles, California in 2008.

Career

After college, Annie went back to MNR Dance Factory. Currently, she holds the position of Team Director in the company, and offers classes on different styles of dancing including hip-hop, jazz, tap, and modern. Her former bio at MNR Dance Factory indicated that prior to her work in the dance school, she gave dance lessons at Archer School for Girls, Paul Revere Middle School, and Windward School.

Personal Life

Annie married Jason Wolf on 28 July 2019, in their 1920s renovated Spanish Colonial family home in California, with only family and close friends as witnesses.

Advertisement

It was a private ceremony and no details were given to the public, except for her mother’s congratulatory post on her Instagram account. The couple is quite private and lives a low-key life. Her last public appearance was when she attended the movie premiere of her mother’s movie, “Halloween,” in 2018, along with the rest of the family. Her mother truly understands her children’s need for privacy as she never overshares. From Jamie’s thousands of photos on her Instagram account, there were only a couple of photos that capture the entire family.

Anne and her husband do not have any children, as of mid-2020.

Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts

  • She gives dancing lessons to people with special needs, such as autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and those with motor/developmental disabilities.
  • While she doesn’t have any interest being in front of the camera, she doesn’t have any problem working behind it. In the movie, “For Your Consideration,” which her father directed, she worked as a set staff assistant.
  • She earned the title of the best choreographer back in college.
  • When her maternal grandfather died, her mother was cut off from his will along with her uncles and aunts. It gave validity to her mother’s claim that her grandfather was not interested with his children. Tony left all of his estate to his fifth wife who was younger than his oldest child. A lawsuit was filed by her Aunt Kelly who was Tony’s eldest child and her mom’s only sister from the same mother. Apparently, the will was changed a few months before Tony died. Jamie Lee chose not to say anything about it publicly.

Appearance

Anne is 5ft 10ins (1.77m) tall and weighs around 138lbs (62kgs). She is Caucasian with long brown hair and brown eyes.

Net worth

Authoritative sources estimate Annie’s net worth is a shigh as $700,000 as of July 2020.
