on

Who is Casey Simpson?

Casey West Simpson was born on 6 April 2004, in Los Angeles, California, USA, and is an actor, best known for his portrayal of the character Richard Jared ‘Ricky’ Harper in the Nickelodeon sitcom “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn”. He’s also worked on numerous Nickelodeon specials during his career.

The Net Worth of Casey Simpson

As of early-2020, Casey Simpson’s net worth is estimated to be over $500,000, earned through a successful career in the entertainment industry, mostly through working with Nickelodeon, but other projects have helped him too.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B3X9MpXA9sJ/

His YouTube channel shows that he is living a lavish lifestyle, including owning his own house and luxury car.

Early Life and Acting Beginnings

Growing up within the Los Angeles area, Casey was exposed to the very prevalent presence of the entertainment industry. At a young age, he showed a charm about himself which led his parents to bring him to auditions when he was three years old. He made his first television appearance through a sketch comedy segment called “Santa’, which aired on Frank TV, following which he began getting more projects, mostly commercial work.

He showed great memorization skills which attracted more television prospects his way. In 2010, he made a guest appearance during the sixth season of the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother”, in which he portrayed a younger version of Barney Stinson. The show is known for being one of the most popular and successful sitcoms of its time, and which certainly helped in building his budding resume. He then gained his first big screen role, in a Lifetime original film called “Five”, which saw him work alongside actress Demi Moore.

Path to Nickelodeon

Simpson then ventured to voice acting, finding work in the animated film “Despicable Me 2”, a franchise that became a worldwide sensation on numerous fronts, especially with the popularity of its characters known as Minions; he wasn’t credited as a part of the main cast, as he only did additional and minor voices for the film. In 2013, he had a guest role in the television show “The Goldbergs”, a period sitcom set in the 1980s, starring actors Wendi McLendon-Covey and Sean Giambrone.

In 2014, he signed to become a talent for the television network Nickelodeon, which is known for its programming aimed towards kids and teenagers.

The network has gained fame through the airing of cartoons such as “SpongeBob SquarePants” and “Fanboy & Chum Chum”, though one of its stronger aspects is its production of original live-action television sitcoms, including  “Drake & Josh”, “Kenan & Kel”, “All That”, “iCarly”, and “The Adventures of Pete & Pete”.
Numerous stars also originally came from Nickelodeon, including Ryan Reynolds, Nick Cannon, Miranda Cosgrove, Keke Palmer, and many more. The prospect of consistent acting work, great pay, and the possibility of elevating his career were too much for Simpson to ignore.

Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn

In 2014, Casey was cast in the Nickelodeon show “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn” as the titular Ricky Harper; his three siblings were portrayed by Lizzy Greene, Aidan Gallagher and Mace Coronel – the casting had the unique premise that the four were quadruplets. At the start of the show they were nine years old, and were often in conflict with one another. For four seasons, the siblings worked with one another to help solve the problems they encountered. Their mother, Anne Harper is portrayed by Allison Munn, while Brian Stepanek played their father.

The show achieved success for most of its run, with Casey becoming a viewer favorite as he appealed to a lot of children of his age. Thanks to his performance, he was nominated for a Young Artist award alongside the cast of the show. He was also nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award for favorite television actor, showing that he was one of the most popular Nickelodeon characters at the time.

Later Career with Nickelodeon and Online Endeavors

Concurrently, Simpson participated in other Nickelodeon specials, including “Nickelodeon’s Sizzling Summer Camp Special”, “Nickelodeon’s Not So Valentine’s Special”, and the “Orange Carper: World Clash”.

He also starred in the Nickelodeon film “Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library”, playing the character Kyle Keeley. Following the end of his run with “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn” in late 2018, he’s not yet taken any new Nickelodeon projects. This may indicate that his contract with the network has already ended, or just that he’s moved on.

In recent years, he’s become active online, transitioning from Nick star to online personality.

He achieved strong followership on the website musical.ly, taking advantage of the traction he gained from his television work, and followed it through when musical.ly later became TikTok. The service is one of the most popular short-form video services in the world, gaining a huge amount of popularity in the US as well as in other countries. He also began uploading regularly onto YouTube, posting video blogs (vlogs), challenges, story videos, and inviting other Nickelodeon stars as guests. His channel gained over 400,000 subscribers, but his activity on it waned in 2019 and he’s not posted anything new since July 2019.

Personal Life

At age 15 Simpson is still single, and unlikely focused on finding a long term partner. As he grew up, there were assumptions made about possible romances he’s had with other Nickelodeon talents, but they’ve never been confirmed. His inactivity online and with Nickelodeon may indicate that he’s pursuing another career path, or has focused on completing his education. History has proven that not all child and teen stars go on to become actors during adulthood. Time will tell what path he chooses to follow.

She’s probably only known for shooting and severely wounding her lover Joey Buttafuoco’s wife Mary Jo Buttafuoco when she was only 17; she pleaded guilty to first-degree aggravated assault, and was sentenced to spend five to 15 years behind bars.

Joey’s 18 years Amy’s senior, and the magazines thus referred to Amy as ‘the Long Island Lolita’; she was paroled in 1999, and has since become a pornographic actress, webcam model and author.

Education and early life

She rang the bell on Buttafuocos’ doors, and when Mary Jo answered, Amy lied that Joey was having an affair with her younger sister; the two women talked for around 15 minutes, and Mary Jo eventually told Amy to leave and never come back. This was when Amy hit Mary Jo twice with the gun, and shot her in the head.

Amy’s husband Louis ‘Lou’ Bellera sold their sex tape to the film studio Red Light District Video in October 2007, and Amy sued them on 6 November 2007, citing copyright infringement. The two sides settled in January 2008, and Amy also reconciled with her husband; parts of the video were played on “The Howard Stern Show”.

Amy then launched her career as a pornographic actress, and her debut movie “Amy Fisher: Totally Nude & Exposed” was released on 12 January 2009; she signed a contract with Lee Entertainment and became a stripper, performing at night clubs once a month. Her second adult movie “Deep Inside Amy Fisher” came out in September 2010, but she revealed in June 2011 that she was no longer a pornographic actress, although still today working as a webcam model.

A number of movies have been made about Amy, including the 1992 “Amy Fisher: My Story”, and in 1993 “The Amy Fisher Story” and “Casualties of Love: The ‘Long Island Lolita’ Story”.

The Woman Who Killed Selena Quintanilla: The Tragic Story of Yolanda Saldívar

Published

on

Who is Yolanda Saldívar?

Yolanda Saldívar is a former registered nurse, who became known for her involvement in the murder of the popular Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez in 1995.

Yolanda Saldívar Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education

Yolanda Saldívar was born on 19 September 1960 in San Antonio, Texas, USA., one of eight children of Frank and Juanita Saldívar. Her father worked as a head waiter at a Mexican restaurant. She attended several elementary schools before graduating from McCollum High School in 1979. She faced bullying and teasing due to her weight and struggled to make friends, which led her to isolate herself from social activities.

She went on to study nursing at Texas A&M International University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1990. Saldívar adopted three children, including her niece, and worked as a registered nurse at several hospitals, including Medical Center Hospital and St. Luke’s Lutheran Hospital. She faced legal trouble over stolen money from her employers, and an unpaid student loan.

Introduction to Selena’s Music and Starting the Fan Club

Yolanda Saldívar first became interested in Selena’s music in the late 1980s, when introduced to it by a friend. Saldívar, who was of Mexican-American heritage and grew up in Texas, was immediately drawn to Selena’s unique style of Tejano music and her charismatic stage presence.

For Saldívar, Selena’s music represented a connection to her own cultural heritage and a source of inspiration. She approached Selena’s father, Abraham, and talked with him about starting a Selena fan club in San Antonio. He immediately approved of her idea, and she was made the club’s president.

Clothing Store Manager and Money Embezzlement Accusation

Yolanda’s involvement with Selena’s business increased. The fan club quickly rose from 1,000 to 5,000 members. When the two bonded over the success, Selena named her the manager of her two clothing boutiques in Corpus Christi and San Antonio. Saldívar was responsible for handling the day-to-day operations of the boutiques, including inventory management, sales and staffing.

However, people from the club started complaining about missed payments and receiving nothing from the club, and Selena’s father became suspicious of Yolanda’s management.

He learned that she was embezzling money, and in early 1995 Abraham, Selena, and her sister Suzette organized a meeting with Yolanda. During the meeting, they accused her of illegal actions, and Abraham fired Yolanda immediately, but Selena kept in contact with Yolanda as she had to give her financial documents.

The Murder of Selena

On 31 March 1995, Selena arranged to meet Yolanda Saldívar at a Days Inn hotel in Corpus Christi to collect financial records that Saldívar had been withholding. However, Saldívar claimed she’d been raped in Mexico, which caused a further delay. Selena drove Saldívar to a hospital, but doctors found no evidence of rape. Upon returning to the motel, Selena asked for the financial papers again, but Saldívar pulled a pistol from her purse and pointed it at Selena. The singer tried to run, but Saldívar shot her in the right shoulder, causing severe damage to an artery. Despite being critically injured, Selena ran towards the lobby seeking help, with Saldívar in pursuit, hurling insults. Selena ultimately died due to blood loss in hospital at 1:05 p.m., just 16 days before her 24th birthday.

Trial and Sentencing

Yolanda Saldívar’s trial for causing fatal shots to Selena, was a hot topic in Latino community in the United States. There was no televised broadcast of the trial, however, outside the courthouse, there were bunch of reporters and cameras. Saldívar’s defense team successfully argued for a change of venue to Houston, Texas, citing concerns about an unfair trial in Selena’s hometown. During the trial, the prosecution presented a police confession in which Saldívar admitted to shooting Selena during an argument over allegations of theft. Conversely, the defense presented testimony from Texas Ranger Robert Garza, who claimed that Saldívar stated the shooting was unintentional.

Despite the defense’s claims, the prosecution argued that Saldívar, who was trained as a nurse, failed to call for emergency assistance or provide any medical aid to Selena after she was shot. Moreover, evidence revealed that the pistol required considerable pressure on the trigger to fire, making it improbable that the shooting was accidental. The judge did not allow the jury to consider lesser charges, and they were instructed to either acquit or convict Saldívar of first-degree murder.

After a few hours of deliberation, the jury found Saldívar guilty of murder, and she received a life sentence in prison. She is currently incarcerated at the Mountain View Unit in Gatesville, Texas, where she is kept in isolation for 23 hours each day because of death threats from Selena’s fans. She can accept visits from friends and family for two hours a week, and she will become eligible for parole on 30th March 2025.

The gun used to kill Selena disappeared after the trial, and was eventually found by chance in a box of office supplies at the home of a court reporter named Sandra Oballe. Although some groups objected to its disposal, the gun was dismantled, and its parts were thrown into Corpus Christi Bay in 2002.

Saldívar has filed a petition with the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals challenging her conviction, claiming that it was filed in 2000 with the 214th District Court but was never sent to the higher court. Her request was received on 31 March 2008, which happened to be the 13th anniversary of Selena’s death; the petition was denied.
