In Other News...A Domino Death, Stella's Groove, and Jennifer Tilly

by | June 29, 2005 | Comments

Real-life model-turned-bounty hunter Domino Harvey, whose rejection of the privileged life for the grit and guns of hunting fugitives will be immortalized on film this fall in Tony Scott’s "Domino," died Monday night from undisclosed causes. The former Ford model, daughter of actor Laurence Harvey and Vogue model Pauline Stone, was found in her West Hollywood apartment and later pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Despite disagreeing with the film’s omission of her homosexuality, Harvey had visited the set of her quasi-biopic and collaborated on the soundtrack with producers, and will be played by fellow Brit Keira Knightley. "Domino" is scheduled for a November 4 release.

Nine years after telling the world how she got her groove back, author Terry McMillan has filed for divorce from her husband, Jonathan Plummer. Plummer, who met McMillan ten years ago at a Jamaican resort (he was 20, she was 40-something), was the inspiration for McMillan’s May-December bestseller-turned-feature film "How Stella Got Her Groove Back;" the couple married six years ago and until now shared a six-bedroom Bay Area home. What spoiled the cinematically sweet story? According to McMillan, it was Plummer’s recent admission that he’s gay; the devastated writer argues that Plummer only married her to gain U.S. citizenship. In his defense, Plummer claims that since coming out, McMillan has treated him with homophobic contempt — and is asking the courts to waive a prenuptial agreement and grant him spousal support.

And finally, challenging the popular belief that she’s as ditzy as her screen roles, "Seed of Chucky" star Jennifer Tilly has done what legions of celebs and plebes alike only dream of — she’s won a coveted World Series of Poker bracelet. Tilly, who is dating professional poker man Phil "Unibomber" Laak, won the two-day Ladies’ World Poker Championship in the No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em event, conquering a pool of 600 entrants by playing strong as the chip leader throughout the final table. Other celebrities that entered this year’s contest include frequent players Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Ed Norton; before the recent television-induced poker boom, even Telly Savalas and Gabe Kaplan were known as avid card-slinging contenders. Tilly’s prize, in addition to the $158,335 cash award, was the diamond and gold bracelet that the once-nominated actress pronounced was ‘better than winning an Oscar.’
