Clint Eastwood Saved a Man’s Life

In a scene right out of a really bad movie, Clint Eastwood saved the life of PGA Tour director Steve John on Wednesday night. They were enjoying a pre-tournament dinner at the Monterey Conference Center when John started choking on a piece of cheese and Eastwood came to the rescue by giving him the Heimlich maneuver. Whaaaaaat!

From the Arizona Daily Star:

“I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn’t work,” John said Friday. “I was looking at him and couldn’t breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life.”

Oh snap, get it Clint! I love that he knows how to properly perform the Heimlich – it’s so easy to do it wrong and just bust somebody’s ribs than actually save them from choking. I also love that he sprung into action right away like a damn superhero. So funny – and awesome!

Sometimes there are real heroes in life, and Clint Eastwood is one of them. (Yes, I’m being a bit sarcastic, but I am serious that I think it’s awesome.)

Clint Eastwood’s Wife Officially Files For Divorce After 17 Years


Clint Eastwood and wife Dina separated but now Dina’s taking the next step by officially filing for divorce after 17 years of marriage, in case you care. I know most of you were on pins and needles every night, wondering if when you woke up, the Eastwood marriage would be over. We got hundreds of emails about it — “when are you going to post an update about Clint Eastwood’s marriage???” — so here you go. Please stop bombarding us. We know he’s a big deal. We all care about him very much. Here are some details from People, because I know you’re thirsting for them:

Citing the usual irreconcilable differences, Dina seeks physical custody of their daughter Morgan, 16, with spousal support and attorney fees to be paid by Clint.

The pair’s split was confirmed by PEOPLE last month. “This is really sad,” a source said at the time. “They were great partners for many years.”

Sources tell PEOPLE that Erica Fisher, who is confirmed to be dating Clint, has been living in his L.A. area home and has been spotted around town driving his Mercedes Benz.

Oh, well, hey there. Previous reports suggested that the Eastwood marriage was long over, so I’m not too surprised to hear about this. Guess they don’t feel like they have to hide. Wonder if Katharine McPhee’s situation is the same.

Following Michael Douglas And Catherine, Clint Eastwood And Wife Separate

Clint Eastwood and his wife, Dina Eastwood, have been married for 17 years. That’s a long-ass time. About a day after Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones came public with their separation, the Eastwoods announced theirs. Though this is coming out today, rumors suggest that they’ve actually been apart since 2011 and that this is just them making it legal. But they appear to be on good terms. Here’s more from Contact Music:

Clint Eastwood and his wife of 17 years, Dina, have separated. Dina Eastwood, nee Ruiz, made a statement on Thursday (29th August) confirming she and her husband were no longer together. Eastwood has only been married twice, but has had numerous relationships with other women. The 83-year-old actor has seven children including 16-year-old Morgan with Dina.

It should be noted that Mr. Eastwood has recently appeared on his wife’s much ignored reality show, Mrs. Eastwood & Company, which suggests that it’s an amicable separation.

This is Eastwood’s second marriage. His first was to a woman he married after 6 months; it didn’t last long. His last major relationship was with actress Sondra Locke. Though they never married, they lived together for fourteen years. And it was because they weren’t legally married that Eastwood got to screw her over — big time.

On April 10, 1989, while Locke was away directing the film Impulse, Eastwood ordered his staff to change the locks on their Bel-Air home, remove most of her possessions and place them in storage.[26] Locke filed a palimony suit against Eastwood, then sued him a second time for fraud, regarding a phony directing contract he set up for her in settlement of the first lawsuit.[27] In 1996, minutes before a jury was to render a verdict in Locke’s favor, Eastwood agreed to settle for an undisclosed amount.

He then blacklisted her from Hollywood. She hasn’t worked in decades. So congrats to Dina for the happy separation.
