Amy Schumer hospitalized

Page Six reports AmySchumer’s spent five days in the hospital, recovering from a “horrible” kidney infection. “Here’s what I’ve been up to this week,” the 36-year-old “I Feel Pretty” star wrote in an Instagram post Friday: “I want to give a big thank-you to the doctors, the bad-ass nurses, also my husband who’s name is, I want to say, Chris? And my sisters Kimby and Mol who have been by my side the whole time.” Schumer planned to fly to London for her movie’s opening but had to cancel.

Gabrielle Union: ‘Cosby just the first’

“Being Mary Jane” star Gabrielle Union, 45, has some words for all the men out there who’ve transgressed: Bill Cosby, 80, who was convicted Thursday of aggravated indecent assault, is just the beginning. “This is just the first domino to go with many, many more,” she told the Associated Press at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Union has talked about her own experiences with sexual assault, and adds that age is no barrier. “If you’ve think that you’ve aged out of justice, think again,” Page Six reports her saying, “because victims/survivors — our memories are long.”

Ann Curry reported Matt Lauer

The Washington Post reported Thursday that disgraced anchor MattLauer’s former co-anchor, Ann Curry, informed two members of NBC management that an employee told her in 2012 she’d been “sexually harassed physically” by Lauer. “A woman approached me and asked me tearfully if I could help her,” Curry told the newspaper. “She was afraid of losing her job … I believed her.” Clearly, however, little was done. The network finally fired Lauer five months ago.
