The endless legal troubles of the Friars Club are raging on — with former boss Michael Gyure filing a new suit against board members over what he claims was “a frivolous and vindictive” suit filed against him last year.

The papers are about as entertaining as a Borscht Belt routine.


FIRST ON FOX: Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. is accused of attacking girlfriend Kysre Gondrezick in a New York City hotel room earlier this week, but her attorney told Fox News Digital the allegations aren't accurate.

"De Niro lets his hair down “About My Father” is about funnyman Sebastian Maniscalco’s hairdresser father. Their friend Robert De Niro plays him. De Niro: “I was in ‘The Irishman’ with Sebastian. This is a personal element from his life. A classic Italian family comedy cultural clash with WASPy stiff in-laws. His actual father was my model. I always want a real element in anyone I play. We met in Oklahoma while shooting a movie. “Actors I admired included Gregory Peck and James Dean who only did three movies but was excellent. I never worked with Montgomery Clift. Brando, always great, I knew personally. I worked with terrific Robert Mitchum twice.” In this is Kim Cattrall. Opens May 26. Go. Take your father. Maybe he’ll do your hair."
