Melissa Joan Hart & Mark Wilkerson Launch Children’s Clothing Line

Melissa Joan Hart & Mark Wilkerson Launch Children’s Clothing Line

Actress Melissa Joan Hart and her husband Mark Wilkerson have teamed up to launch their first ever kids’ line, King of Harts. As the parents of three young active sons they were motivated to create a line of cool, functional, and resilient clothing options that could keep up with their frog catching, mud-puddle jumping, tree climbing boys.  Celebrity Baby Scoop spoke to Melissa about their new clothing line, how they spent their summer and gearing up for back-to-school.

CBS: What was the inspiration for your new clothing line? How important was it to you to have everything made in America?

MJH: “Mark and I were frustrated with the lack of cool boys clothing available and decided to step up and do something about it by launching King of Harts. We wanted to start a family business that all of us could be involved in and be proud of. That included everything being made in the USA. We have never even researched costs overseas because we want to help local towns and businesses in our country grow and strive, just as we hope people will take a chance on our new adventure.”


CBS: A portion of your sales will be going to Youth Villages. How did you get involved with them? What programs does Youth Villages offer behaviorally troubled kids?

MJH: “We sought out a charity that would benefit from not only our monetary donations but also our products for kids across America that need to know someone out there cares and is willing to put new clothes on their backs. By partnering with Youth Villages, we know King of Harts is helping give hope to the children of our country.”

CBS: Where can families purchase the King of Harts clothing for their kids?
MJH: “We have a limited winter line available right now online which includes our cool thermal with one of Olympic snowboarder Louie Vito’s own Instagram photos that all proceeds will go to Youth Villages. The King of Harts spring/summer line will be available in boutique kids stores around the country and on our website as well at Kingofharts.com.”

CBS: Did the kids enjoy summer vacation? What kinds of activities do you enjoy as a family?

MJH: “We had a lovely summer. I was busy directing my first feature, an untitled christmas movie for Lifetime. It was strange focusing so much on christmas in the heat of summer but it was an amazing challenge that I am very proud of. The boys did a lot of frog catching, swimming and playing with neighborhood kids while mom was busy. I think they had the quintessential relaxing childhood summer.”
CBS: Are the boys back in school? What grades are they in this year? What are their favorite subjects? Are they involved with sports?

MJH: “Mason is in 3rd and the homework is already starting. He’s very into sports and ready for football season. Brady is in 1st and just tries to keep up with his big brother. Tucker is a beast and growing and talking more everyday. I am most impressed with Tucker’s ability to stay vertical on the trampoline all day long while his big brothers bounce him around tirelessly.”

CBS: What is Tucker into these days? What’s it like to raise three boys?

MJH: “It’s like running a zoo and circus and camp all at the same time. As Mark keeps saying “we are at capacity”.

CBS: How do you juggle a busy career and a hectic school routine with the kids? What do you find most challenging?

MJH: “I have the amazing blessing of a husband who doesn’t want to miss a moment in his children’s lives. Marks involvement in the kids everyday activities allows me to work my tail off virtually guilt free.”

CBS: Do you have any other new projects you’d like to share with us?
MJH: “We have just picked up and moved back to LA for another exciting season of Melissa and Joey which will include a fun “witchy” Halloween episode and a Christmas episode before returning to tv in the new year. So along with the Christmas movie and the clothing line, I have a very exciting and busy fall ahead of me.”

Joran van der Sloot Films Video Inside His Peruvian Prison

09/02/2014 AT 05:05 PM EDT

Joran van der Sloot offered a peek inside his Peruvian prison this week in a new video the convicted killer says he shot “for my own security.”

Van der Sloot, 27, is serving a 28-year sentence for murdering Stephany Flores, a 21-year-old Peruvian business student, in 2010. He also remains the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway.

Last month, the Dutch native was transferred to Challapalca Maximum Security Prison – a remote facility located in the Andes mountains at 15,700 feet and near the Bolivian border – after allegedly threatening to kill a prison guard.

Last week, he went on a hunger strike to protest conditions at the prison, reports NBC News.

The new 46-second clip begins with a close-up of van der Sloot, who sports facial hair and a mohawk-style haircut, leaning back and talking slowly.

“I am making this video for my own security,” he says in the translation. “Because the director gave me this phone. I don’t know why.”

Later, the video shows someone at the prison taking his blood pressure and then frisking him and other inmates as they face the wall with their arms up.

The video comes just before van der Sloot is due to become a father. He married Leidy Figueroa in a prison ceremony in July, and she is due to give birth to their child later this month.

In March, the Peruvian government also announced van der Sloot will be allowed to face charges in the U.S. for extorting $25,000 from Holloway’s mother, Beth, in exchange for false information about the location of Natalee’s body.

However, he will not face charges until after his current murder sentence is complete – in 2038, at least.

The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story: You Can’t Sit With Us, Dustin Diamond!

By Christopher Rosa 

Lifetime aired its highly-anticipated movie The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story last night, and one thing is pretty clear by the credits: It was a hard knock four years for Screech (Dustin Diamond). Narrated by Bayside High School’s resident geek — and loosely based off Diamond’s 2009 tell-all Behind the Bell Unauthorized  puts Screech in one corner and his pretty-preppy co-stars (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Lark Voorhies, Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani Thiessen) in the other. For two hours, we watch Diamond yearning to be hotter, edgier, drunker (yup) and the whole thing is really, really depressing. 

Now, it’s not just Screech screeching. Unauthorized delivers the Saved by the Bell behind-the-scenes dish we were hungry for. The highlights: Gosselaar (Zack Morris) had to touch up his own roots before taping the first episode; Berkley (who played Jessie Spano) wanted to research and meet real drug addicts for Jessie’s infamous caffeine pills episode; and Tori Spelling was Diamond’s first kiss.

Mr. Belding himself (Dennis Haskins) reflects on Jessie Spano’s legendary episode

But if we’re being honest, Unauthorized plays out like a laundry list of Diamond’s Screech and non-Screech grievances. If you’re looking for the Cliff’s Notes version, we picked the eight biggest bones Diamond had to pick with his co-stars, bosses, and family. And they all boil down to this Emmy-worthy wail: “I AM NOT SCREECH!”

8. Dad, don’t you want me to be cool?

Early in the film, we get a feel for the dynamic between Diamond and his father — and it isn’t pretty. Daddy wants his son to be like the “real” boys and play sports, but alas, Diamond would rather read “weird” things and stew in teenage angst. So how does he win his old man’s approval? By drinking copious amounts of alcohol, having sex, and almost getting fired from Bell. When his angry father confronts him, Diamond delivers an other-worldly “IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT?!” freak-out, complete with flipping a tiny table and scowling. All the awards.

7. Give me muscles!

Bell took off in its second season, and with it came fangirls touring the set looking to hook up with Lopez (who played A.C. Slater). When Diamond watched Lopez mack hard on a starry-eyed blonde, he had perhaps the weirdest CGI fantasy ever: Teenage Screech was covered in bulging, disproportionate muscles, and surrounded by three ladies (take THAT, Slater!). He was satisfied; we were terrified.

6. Why won’t they love me?!

Riffing off No. 7, Diamond doesn’t grow muscles, but he does get a shot of confidence — enough to take his own fangirl to the set, if you catch our drift. But right before he seals the deal, the fangirl asks to meet Gosselaar and subsequently dances on Diamond’s shattered dreams.
