After becoming a successful shoe designer and author, Mo'ne Davis, the pride of the Taney Dragons, will now have a movie made about her life, courtesy of the Disney Channel. The title: Throw Like Mo. Davis will consult on the film, from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants producer Debra Martin Chase.
"There are so many great things happening to me right now, and it's a very exciting time in my life," Davis said in a statement. "A year ago, I never would have thought that Disney Channel would make a movie about me. I can't wait to get started, and I hope it will encourage other viewers to believe that dreams really do come true."
This isn't the first time Davis has had a high-profile camera turned her way. Last year, Spike Lee came to Philadelphia to make the Chevrolet- produced short Throw Like a Girl. - Molly Eichel
Why is there a growing rift between Bruce Jenner and his K-tastic stepkids, Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney (who were born to Bruce's ex, Kris)? Anonymous Insider tells People that while Bruce's own four kids from previous marriages have known of dad's sexual-identity issues "for years," he clued in the three K's only recently. The youngest K's, his kids with Kris, Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 17, found out last and "are having a hard time with the transition."
She's not exactly a licensed marriage counselor (wait, do they need a license?), nor is she actually married herself, but Eva Mendes has some compelling advice for women eager to avoid the kinds of relationship problems that can lead to divorce.
"You can't do sweatpants. . . .. Ladies, No. 1 cause of divorce in America, sweatpants! No! Can't do that," Mendes, 41, tells Extra. The Training Day and Ghost Rider star and her bf, Ryan Gosling, welcomed a daughter, Esmeralda, in September.
Mendes' new film, Lost River, which happens to be Gosling's directorial debut, is due next month.
