Agenda Festival, Dew Tour Breathe New Life Into Action Sports

LONG BEACH, Calif. — Here we go, again.
The idea of lifting the curtain on the business-to-business trade show for consumers continues to gain steam, with Agenda on Saturday capping its traditional trade show with a consumer-facing festival. It was the big buzz locally, especially with Agenda once again running in conjunction with the Dew Tour skateboarding competition at the Long Beach Convention Center compound.
The festival included performances on Saturday from Brockhampton, Lil Yachty and Na-Kel Smith, among others. There were also more than 500 pop-ups from brands such as Chinatown Market, The Hundreds, Pintrill, Herschel Supply Co., Ripndip, Champion and Dr. Martens. Panels featured skateboarders such as Pat Ngoho and Steve Caballero, actors from the Netflix series “Game Over, Man!” and a talk on reselling with StockX chief executive officer Josh Luber. Athlete, musician and designer meet-and-greets, plus a bevy of food trucks, filled out the day.

Saloni Lodha, Eugenie Niarchos Bring Obsessions to Life With New RTW Collaboration

TEAMWORK: Designer Saloni Lodha and fine jeweler Eugenie Niarchos have brought their mutual obsessions — traveling, bright colors, embellishments — to life via a new ready-to-wear capsule collection that will drop in September.
After continuously sharing ideas and meeting in different places across the globe, the longtime friends finally decided to create something together. “We would travel to Bombay and to Hong Kong, pick up references from each place and talk about all the different dresses we wanted to design and where each style would work,” said Lodha, whose label, Saloni is best known for its vibrant, printed dresses.
“I think I can get into Eugenie’s head and we love all the same things,” the designer added during the launch lunch at Dartmouth House in London’s Mayfair.
The capsule channels the same fantasy-filled aesthetic that Niarchos’ jewelry is known for: There are tiger prints that pay homage to her spirit animal, sequin dresses and midi skirts reflecting her love of mermaids and intricately embroidered pieces that reflect on both designers’ fascination with India.

What the Life Cycles of Previous PlayStations Say About the PlayStation 5

Buy a hot new game system, and you’ll see an even better model the next day. That’s the stuff of lazy sitcom jokes, yet there’s an undeniable rhythm to the seemingly brief lives of game consoles. Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO John Kodera recently mentioned that the PlayStation 4 is in its “final life cycle,” prompting many to point out that the system isn’t even five years old.

We may complain, but it’s all part of the process. Sony follows the time-honored practice of piping up about a new system just as the current one hits its stride and the competition gets fierce. Yet if there’s a common thread in the PlayStation family, it’s one of dignified exits for old systems and overhyped entrances for the newcomers. Here’s what the life cycles of the previous four PlayStations possible tell us about the PlayStation 5.

Top High School Basketball Player Dies After Collapsing Mid-Game: He Had ‘So Much Life’

James Hampton, a top high school basketball player, died Saturday after collapsing midway through a game.

The 17-year-old played for Team United, an elite team from Charlotte, North Carolina, and was competing in a Nike Elite Youth Basketball League game in Hampton, Virginia when he died.

Hampton ran down the court and said to a referee, “Hey, ref,” before collapsing, Team United’s director, Jacoby Davis, said.

“He just fell down on the floor,” Davis told The Charlotte Observer. “He had seizures a year ago — and I remember telling me that, ‘I saw his eyes rolling back in his head.’ I ran on the court thinking he was having a seizure. A trainer came over and said he didn’t know what was wrong. Another trainer checked his pulse. He said he didn’t have a pulse. It got crazy after that.”

Medical responders ran onto the court and gave Hampton chest compressions before taking him away by ambulance to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“It’s hard to even explain,” Davis said. “To have a kid in your program with so much life — that’s just the kind of kid he was. He was always happy. For something like this to happen, I can’t even explain it. And to have to talk to a parent not even in town and tell him that his son has died, well, that’s more devastating.”

Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE? Sign up for our daily newsletter to get our best stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox.

The team decided to stay and play the rest of the tournament in Hampton’s honor and decisively won their game on Sunday. Chris Carrawell, Duke University’s assistant coach and father to Caleb Stone-Carrawell, one of Hampton’s teammates, said it was a difficult weekend for the group.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

“You could tell at the beginning, they were probably a little emotional, in shock, so to speak,” Carrawell told the Daily Press. “Which is, wow, you’re 16, 17-years-old, and you go through what you saw on the court less than 24 hours ago. For them to shake it off and respond and come away with a big win: You can already tell, is … looking out for them.”

Ruth Chapman Talks Life After Fashion, Hot Labels That Are Bucking the System

LONDON — Ruth Chapman may be easing her way out of the day-to-day fashion business — and moving on to more cerebral pursuits — but that hasn’t tempered her passion for seeking the industry’s next great talents and rethinking brick-and-mortar retail.
It’s been a buzzy 12 months for Chapman, who sold Matchesfashion.com, the retailer she founded with her husband Tom Chapman in 1987, to Apax Partners in September in a deal valuing the company at $ 1 billion.
The sale was the surprise of the summer: For years the Chapmans had expected to pursue an initial public offering for their business, but in a matter of just a few weeks, they had multiple suitors knocking on their door, with Apax emerging as the winner.
“We got to a position where we were doing extremely well, the business was growing extremely fast and a lot of people came knocking. So we thought: ‘OK, we’ll continue to grow the business for IPO, but we’ll listen to what they have to say’ — and conversations began to develop,” said Chapman.
“We felt like we had done this for a really long time, and if we could step back that would be an exciting thing to do. Apax are a

Lucy Liu Wants to #BringArtBackToSchools After Her Childhood Passion Changed Her Life

Lucy Liu has school art programs to thank for her success as an actress.

The Kill Bill star, 49, tells PEOPLE she mined her creativity by exploring her artistic hobbies at school. Growing up, Liu says, her parents didn’t encourage art in their home. The only time she could explore that side of herself, she says, was in school.

“It actually changed my life completely because since we were so math and science oriented,” she recalls. “When I started to get involved and do art on my own and at school in those programs, I was able to understand that I really wanted to have a creative life. Once I graduated from school I obviously pursued that and continued to pursue it even though my parents were not thrilled about that.”

That’s why Liu says she is partnering up with LIFEWTR, the premium bottled water company, and the brand’s “Arts in Education Series” on Arts Advocacy Day to drive conversation around the importance of arts in education and help #BringArtBackToSchools. On Monday, the actress posted about the campaign to her Instagram alongside a message on how her fans can get involved and help their local schools receive free art kits from LIFEWTR.

“Today, @LIFEWTR is announcing a commitment to reach one million students nationwide in the next year through curated curriculum, distribution of art supplies and local partnerships to champion this cause and inspire the next generation of artists like myself,” she wrote. “Please join me and share your story about how art has had a positive impact on you or someone you know, zip code and #BringArtBackToSchools. They’ll be donating art kits to classrooms in select schools across the country.”

The initiative combines two of the things Liu is most passionate about. As a mom herself to 2-and-a-half-year-old Rockwell Lloyd, the Elementary actress says it’s important to make sure kids explore their creativity when young.

“I have a few focuses. One of them is children, the other one is art and the other one is acting,” Liu says. “With kids especially, there’s a certain freedom that they have with the way they express themselves and that’s what we should tap into now. And what I love about what LIFEWTR is doing is they’re advocating for that and they’re advocating for people to have an opportunity to discover themselves as artists and to inspire other people.”

Kevin Hart Celebrates First Anniversary with Pregnant Wife: ‘1 Year Down and the Rest of Our Life to Go’

Kevin Hart and his wife Eniko Parrish have one year of married life in the books!

The comedian commemorated his first anniversary with a black and white photo of the couple — and soon-to-be parents! — smiling as they danced together at their wedding.

“Happy 1 year anniversary to this unbelievable wife of mine,” he wrote on Instagram. “Thank u for all that you do. Thank you for loving me & supporting me at the highest level…Thank you for loving & embracing my kids & the way you do…Thank you for turning my house into home…Thank you for simply making me Happy….”

He continued, “You are & will forever be my ‘Rib’….1 year down & the rest of our life to go….Our family & our union is getting bigger & stronger & I love it!!!!!”

The duo married last August in a lavish California ceremony after a two-year engagement and many years together. “I already feel married, the wedding is really just for her,” he told Entertainment Weekly at the time.

The couple broke their baby news in May, telling PEOPLE that they are expecting their first child together — a little boy. “We are overjoyed about our new addition to our family,” they said in a joint statement. (Hart also has two children from a previous marriage: son Hendrix, 9½, and daughter Heaven, 12.)

RELATED VIDEO: Kevin Hart and Wife Eniko Parrish Are Expecting Their First Child Together

The 38-year-old Ride Along star posted a photo of himself in mid-cackle to Instagram last month, appearing to respond to claims that he had been caught cheating on his wife after photos of him in a car with a woman after a nightclub appearance in Miami Beach surfaced online.

“At the end of the day, you just gotta laugh at the BS,” Hart wrote, seemingly dismissing the claims — which had caused his name to trend on Twitter throughout the day. “#LiveLoveLaugh ….. .”

Ouai Taps Stephanie Shepherd, Kristen Noel Crawley for ‘Live Life Your Ouai’

Product isn’t central to the new campaign Jen Atkin conceptualized for Ouai, her one-and-a-half-year-old hair-care brand — celebrating the “hustle” of women is.
And to do this, Atkin tapped eight women, a baby and a dog (Chrissy Teigen’s French bulldog Pippa) to depict what it means to be a woman for “Live Life Your Ouai.” The series of images shot by husband Mike Rosenthal. Today, the campaign kicks off across Ouai’s social platforms, with new content rolling out through Oct. 30. A collection where customers can shop “the best products for girls on the go,” as well as non-hair related merchandise will hit theouai.com too, including “Ouai Woke” and “Nasty in My Own Ouai” pins.
“It felt like everything was external and the narrative was about being pretty. I get it — we’re in the beauty aisle. But part of me felt just wanted to put a twist on that…and when I sat down and thought about what it means to be a woman, [I realized] there is so much more of the story to tell,” Atkin said.

Alex Rodriguez Gets Emotional as He Describes How Boys & Girls Club Saved His Life as a Kid

Fourteen-time MLB All-Star Alex Rodriguez may be a sports legend now, but the former New York Yankee says his path could have gone in a very different direction.

Speaking on Tuesday morning (just before the All-Star game) at the Boys & Girls Club of Miami-Dade, Rodriguez recalled how the local charity formed his childhood years and guided his future.

“This is a dream day. It’s a dream day because the Boys & Girls Club really shifted – perhaps saved – my life,” the slugger said of the club, which was celebrating a new teen center in Kendall.

“My mother worked two jobs, she was a secretary in the morning and served tables at night – at a place called Latin America right down the street.

“And I remember every day getting dropped off at the Boys & Girls Club, doing my homework for about two or three hours – at least pretending to do my homework (laughs) – and then I would go and play baseball under the lights as a nine year old boy. In front of hundreds of people, under the lights.”

Rodriguez, 41, who spent the weekend attending All-Star events with girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, happily celebrated the club’s newest expansion, which he has donated millions to.

Joined by his daughter Natasha and current Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton, the athlete took the club’s current kids through some drills before officially cutting the ribbon at the new teen center.

Rodriguez will also announce Tuesday night’s All-Star game for Fox Sports.

Referencing his work with the organization as well as Stanton’s work with his charity All Star Smiles, Rodriguez said, “A lot of amazing things can be done when people come together and try to give back and pay it forward. All of us here have been very fortunate and have been tremendous beneficiaries of Major League Baseball,” adding of their efforts, “For a lot of kids it’s a hope – out of the inner city – out of the ghetto, it gives you hope.”

After the ribbon cutting, Rodriguez took a minute to reinforce his message.

“The Boys & Girls Club didn’t just give me a place to go after school, it also taught me a high level of competition…it’s our job now to pay that debt back,” he said, adding, “that time for me was life changing.”

Twitter Applies Comey’s ‘Open Setting’ Excuse To Everyday Life

During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, former FBI director James Comey declined to answer several questions, giving the reason that the public hearing was an “open setting.”

For instance, senators received this particular response when Comey was questioned about the dossier compiled by a British spy and whether he believed President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.

And although his refusal to answer these questions is presumably because they touched on classified information, Comey said the phrase so often, it became drinking-game worthy.

The phrase also seems like a great way to excuse yourself from answering something you don’t want to answer.

Twitter ran with this idea and turned the phrase into a really funny meme. 

Here are the best of the bunch:

Mario Testino Goes Larger Than Life in Berlin

MARIO MAKES IT BIG: Mario Testino’s “Undressed” is the Helmut Newton Foundation’s largest-scale show to date. In this exhibit of 50 published and private photographs of men and women often wearing nothing more than their tattoos, Testino blew up his images to completely fill the walls in three halls of Berlin’s graciously proportioned Museum of Photography.
Looming over 10 feet from the ceiling to the walls’ lower wood moldings, and spanning sometimes 23 feet in width, this site-specific installation conceived exclusively for the Helmut Newton Foundation offers a spectacular yet also intimate view. For as the photographer noted prior to the show’s opening June 2, the enormous size and full bleed from corner to corner means there are no distractions. The viewer is almost compelled to immerse his or herself in the images, turning from “a voyeur into a participant. We’re in a moment when people want to interact with what they see, and not just look. They want to be part of it, so who knows? Maybe people will now go home and take photos of each other like this.”
That means equal undressing rights for all, with full frontals, male and female, to enticing back views, moments of amorous play

Artist Turns Life With His Wife Into Adorably Relatable Comics

Artist Yehuda Devir takes life with his wife Maya in Tel Aviv and turns it into relatable comic book-style illustrations.

The pair has been together for eight years and will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary in two months. 

“My inspiration for these comics is simply our daily lives,” the artist told HuffPost. “These are real cases that happen to us.”

The couple met while they were in the army, became best friends and, over time, the platonic relationship turned into a romantic one. 

“Because of her, I make these illustrations ― she just gives me laughter and happiness for life,” Devir told HuffPost. “She is also an artist, in my opinion, better than me, and I sometimes get her reviews about the illustrations I do.”

TV Meets Real Life As Frank Underwood Is Photographed By Pete Souza

Pete Souza is known for capturing some of former President Barack Obama’s finest and cutest moments: gazing at the Chicago skyline with Michelle, joshin’ around with a WWII veteran, beating Steph Curry in Connect Four, looking like a Renaissance painting, and chatting out his Christmas shopping list with Bo the dog. (Obama and Bo have had some serious heart-to-hearts over the years.)

Now, because reality TV has already bled into the Oval Office, the photographer who documented one of the most outwardly levelheaded presidents in recent history has shot one of the most inwardly unhinged ― Frank Underwood, Kevin Spacey’s ruthless player on “House of Cards.”

In the images below, exclusively debuting on HuffPost, we see snapshots from a day in the life of President Underwood around Washington, D.C., with chief of staff Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), as he pays a visit to the Martin Luther King Jr., memorial surrounded by young adults blissfully unaware of his shady political dealings.

The stunt with Souza follows an unveiling of Frank Underwood’s likeness at the National Portrait Gallery last year, where Spacey ― in character ― was followed by members of the actual White House press corps.  

Set to debut May 30 on Netflix, the new season finds the Underwoods locked in an election battle as they renegotiate their relationship with each other in the nation’s highest office.

The ‘Happiest Moment’ Of Quentin Tarantino’s Life Came During ‘Reservoir Dogs’

As one of America’s star directors, Quentin Tarantino has become a larger-than-life personality. He seems relentlessly cocksure today, but there was once a time when Tarantino had to prove to himself that he was capable of this whole filmmaking thing.

Given how trying it can be to forge a movie career, Tarantino had a relatively auspicious start. His first project, “Reservoir Dogs,” made him an instant up-and-comer amid the 1990s’ independent-film boom. Celebrating the crime thriller’s 25th anniversary, Tarantino reunited with Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth on Friday night for a screening and panel discussion at the Tribeca Film Festival. There, he spoke of his signature memory from the film, which doubles as the “happiest moment” of his life.

It came at the end of a two-week rehearsal period, during which the actors bonded in Los Angeles. Keitel hosted a cast dinner at the house he was renting in Malibu. Tarantino was staying with his mother in Glendale, about 40 miles away. That night, perched around Keitel’s table, he realized the dream he’d maintained since his Tennessee days as a teenage video-store clerk had real potential. Thanks to the “Reservoir Dogs” cast’s harmony, Tarantino’s career was born.

“We’re sitting there and we’re having a great time, and I really realized that, gosh, a lot of the pressure was off my shoulders cinematically,” Tarantino said. “These guys were so perfect in their parts, they were so vibing with each other, they so understood the material. By rehearsing two weeks, they knew the material. I was like, ‘Fuck, if I just keep this movie in focus, I’ve got a movie.’ Anything else I bring to it will just be frosting, but the cake is here — it’s these guys. I watched it at dinner that night. It was a really nice thing for Harvey to do. But I remember that night getting in my car and just taking that drive all the way from Malibu to Glendale, just on [Sunset Boulevard], never getting off Sunset, all the little, windy roads. And that was the happiest time of my life. That was the happiest moment of my life. This thing that I had thought about for so long — not just ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ just making movies in general — this might just work out.”

Of course, things did work out, despite projector problems and a power outage during the first “Reservoir Dogs” screening at the 1992 Sundance Film Festival. Tarantino saw it as a mark of achievement that people walked out during the scene were Mr. Blonde tortures the kidnapped police officer. The number of exits during a single screening peaked at 33, according to his count. Even Wes Craven walked out at Spain’s horror-focused Sitges Film Festival. “The guy who did ‘Last House on the Left’ walked out of my movie,” Tarantino roared. “I guess it was too tough for him.”

‘I Am Heath Ledger’ Focuses On The Actor’s Life, Not His Death

Heath was the most alive human and if it wasn’t on the edge, it didn’t interest him. If there wasn’t some type of risk involved, he had no time for it. He went all the way out with the time that he had. He went all the way to the edge.

That quote by musician Ben Harper opens “I Am Heath Ledger,” the new documentary premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival April 23 and airing on Spike TV next month. 

Harper joins Heath Ledger’s closest friends and family members in the heartwarming project, directed by Adrian Buitenhuis and Derik Murray. The film compiles interviews with the likes of Ledger’s parents and colleagues, including Naomi Watts, Ang Lee, Matt Amato and Djimon Hounsou, among the actor’s own photos and footage, which he shot throughout his 28 years. In a way, Ledger himself is a director of his own documentary. 

“There were always cameras around,” Ledger’s former girlfriend and model Christina Cauchi says in the film. “I mean, he was documenting everything and he was just surrounded by all of those moments he was in, but then he’d be capturing the next moment and the next moment and the next moment. It didn’t stop, it never stopped.” 

“It wasn’t just to film us or film what we were doing, he was creating something, straightaway,” Ledger’s best friend Trevor DiCarlo explains. 

Ledger’s death in January 2008 took the world by storm, considering his illustrious career and reputation in Hollywood. At the time of his passing, Ledger was shooting “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” and was set to debut his unforgettable work as The Joker in “The Dark Knight,” which went on to win him a posthumous Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. 

But Ledger was so much more than just an actor, as the film comes to show.

He was a son. He was a director. He was a brother. He was a chess player. He was a friend. He was a photographer. He was a father. He was a music lover. And most importantly, he was an influencer. 

“Some people are just bigger than the world has room for,” Harper says of Ledger, with Lee later adding, “He was a person so talented, even God envied him.” 

Below, eight things we learned while watching “I Am Heath Ledger.” 

 

Mel Gibson was his first teacher. 

When Ledger booked the role of Gabriel Martin, Mel Gibson’s son, in “The Patriot,” it was a dream come true for the Australian actor.

“It was a huge production. It was a little terrifying,” DiCarlo says of the 2000 movie. “You can tell he wanted to do a good job, he was still learning.” 

Ledger’s agent, Steve Alexander, admits that he had a slight “crisis of confidence” and was struggling on set, but soon took note of the lessons he was learning from Gibson. 

“He’s standing across from his idol,” Alexander says. “Acting with Mel Gibson for a young Aussie kid was a lot. [But] Mel was great and really generous with him and took him under his wing and was amazing.” 

“Mel really taught him how to come in and out of a character,” DiCarlo adds.

 

 

Fame scared him. 

Although Ledger always knew he wanted to be an actor, once “A Knight’s Tale” really put him on the map, he became a bit overwhelmed by all the attention.

He was “mortified, and he felt owned,” his friend and director Matt Amato says. 

“He kind of almost pulled out of every movie he ended up doing [over fear he’d fail],” Alexander admits, adding that Ledger followed through with his career because he enjoyed the art of the craft.

 

He housed a lot of Australian actors when they came to Los Angeles. 

Ledger apparently was everybody’s buddy, putting up dozens of Australian actors at the start of their careers, including Martin Henderson, Rose Byrne and Joel Edgerton. 

“The Australian thing, to me, was, ‘Yeah, come one, come all!’” Naomi Watts, who dated Ledger from 2002 to 2004, jokes in the film. 

“You’ve flown around the world. Staying in LA somewhere for a couple of months? That cost a lot, and I had nothing going on work-wise. Nothing,” actor Ben Mendelsohn, who stayed at Ledger’s place, explains.

Ledger would apparently throw parties and DJ on the turntables all night. 

“People would stay a long time, sometimes a bit longer than necessary,” Watts says. “With him, it was just [having] friends to hang out with and share the journey. He was very big on sharing his success.”

 

He might’ve, sort of, inspired “Entourage.” 

At one of these house parties, Mendelsohn spotted “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier, and swears he was doing research for the HBO show by getting a glimpse into Ledger’s posse.

“Heath’s place in LA was a renowned sort of pre-’Entourage’ entourage house,” Mendelsohn says, explaining the time Grenier showed up at the house. “I often fancy that he was doing a bit of research on a functioning entourage, because Heath wasn’t there so ‘Vinny,’ as it were, would have been away making a film.” 

 

He almost played Spider-Man. 

After “Monster’s Ball,” people viewed Ledger in a different way, as more of a “dramatic actor,” Alexander said. 

“When I read ‘Spiderman,’ I talked to him about it and it was almost immediate that he said, ‘That makes no sense for me. I can’t possibly be Peter Parker,’” Alexander explains. “He was looking, always, for something that was going to be truly challenging … ways that he could disappear into a character and be almost recognizable.” 

The role obviously went to Toby Maguire. 

 

He was an impressive chess player.

Ledger played chess “every day,” according to Amato, who says they would often face-off in matches or play online if they weren’t together.

“I always felt that he was five moves in front of me,” Ledger’s dad, Kim, says of his son’s chess skills. “By the time he was 10 or 11 or so, it was pretty hard to actually beat him. Heath was trying to achieve a grand master status, and was only a few points away from achieving his goal.”  

Ledger, who directed a few music videos, was set to make his feature-length directorial debut on “The Queen’s Gambit,” about a young chess player addicted to drugs. The film was reportedly going to star Ellen Page, and was scheduled to begin shooting in late 2008. 

“He understood that story inside and out … he had something to say. He had the ability to communicate his ideas, he could translate into film,” cinematographer Ed Lachman says in the doc. 

 

Bon Iver wrote a song based on Heath’s life. 

When he found out Ledger died, Amato was shooting Bon Iver’s music video “The Wolves (Act I & II).” 

“I just held him for the longest time,” Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon says. “This person that I had just met just lost somebody so important to them ― it was no longer about making a Bon Iver music video anymore. This was now our chance to be there with Matt as he grieved. It was a three-day wake.” 

After the experience, Vernon began writing down lyrics “on some of these visions Matt would kind of tell me about Heath growing up in Australia.” 

“The words ended up being the first song on [my self-titled album], and I called it ‘Perth.’” 

The mostly instrumental song features the lyrics, “Still alive for you, love.” 

 

There are misconceptions about his death.  

The film discusses Ledger’s sleeping problems at length. Almost everyone interviewed admits that he had a hard time resting his mind, soaking up every second of each day. His email was even “illberunningaround@[insert].com.”

At the time of his death, Ledger was having trouble sleeping and was sick with pneumonia. The prescribed medications mixed with sleeping pills are what caused his accidental overdose.

“It’s still hard when people talk about it and people have preconceived ideas surrounding that period of time. But that’s what people do. They come up with their version of it that makes it convenient,” Alexander says. “The truth is, he was super happy and loving life and he struggled with some demons but he wasn’t wanting to go anywhere but forward.”

“I guess we’re no different from anyone else who loses a child or loses somebody suddenly. The only difference being we had to live our feelings out in the public eye,” his mom, Sally, says, with sister Kate adding, “The world did find out before we did. It will haunt me for the rest of my life.” 

 

I Am Heath Ledger” airs on Spike TV May 17 at 10 p.m. ET.
