For more than twenty years, Leslie Moonves has been one of the most powerful media executives in America as the chairman and C.E.O. of CBS Corporation. But in a stunning move, he was fired — triggering two new small screen scandals. His wife, The Talk host Julie Chen, stepped down in the wake of his demise, while another TV talker, Steve Harvey, lost his long-running talk show to a pop star. We go behind-the-scenes for the inside scoop.
In our second story, America's mob world has been shaken to its core by Gambino family boss Gene Gotti returning to the streets — and his freedom threatens to spark a new organized crime war across the country.
Gene — the younger brother of the infamous Teflon Don, John Gotti, who died in prison in 2002 — served almost 30 years in a federal lockup for heroin trafficking before being sprung on Sept. 14. But the 71-year-old is now itching to get back to work for “The Family,” sources have told All Rise, and bring old-school mob rules back to their operation, which has tentacles from coast to coast! But are we on the verge of a new underworld war?
Plus: The federal government — including the FBI and the Coast Guard — should launch a fresh investigation into the 1981 death of Natalie Wood. That’s the claim of top law enforcement sources after Dennis Davern, the captain of Natalie’s death yacht, accused the Hollywood beauty’s husband, Robert Wagner, of murdering her.
“It’s a fatality on navigational waters and the Coast Guard has jurisdiction,” attorney Peter Gleason, a retired lieutenant with the Coast Guard Reserve, tells All Rise. “This is not something that should have been handed over to local authorities because it’s Los Angeles. The police going after someone in the movie industry is like law enforcement in Las Vegas going after casinos.”
