Christina Applegate loved playing Debbie Griswold, a slutty alcoholic (her words not ours) turned soccer mom, in Vacation. But one things for sure, Debbie is no Kelly, as in Bundy. Applegate told us while audiences love reminiscing about her moronic character from Married With Children, and might find some similarities between the two, that was certainly not the case.

“I don’t think that she has anything to do with KB, Debbie is not a moron, she’s just a slutty alcoholic,” Applegate joked to HipHollywood. “We talked about the fact that I wanted her to have a life and a story and I wanted her to have an edge … I want to have some fun and I love doing ridiculous things and I’m pretty much game for anything, so thats really where that came from.”

A reboot of the 1983 film, National Lampoon’s Vacation, the film follows Ed Helms, who plays a grown up Rusty Griswold, as he takes his family on a trip across the country to WallyWold. Helms told us he was a huge fan of the original starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo. “I just loved how this one fit right into the Griswold mythology and it was exciting to create this new generation and whole new step forward.”

Vacation, which also stars Leslie Mann and Chris Hemsworth is in theaters July 29th.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
