. JEFF: TODAY ON “EYE ON ENTERTAINMENT,” HOLLYWOOD LEGEND ALAN ALDA REVEALED ON “CBS THIS MORNING” HE’S BEEN BATTLING PARKINGSON’S DISEASE FOR THREE YEARS. PAT: HE HAD THIS MESSAGE FOR OTHER PEOPLE WHO MAY BE FACING A DEVASTATING DIAGNOSIS. THE THING I WANT FOLKS TO KNOW, AND THIS IS NOT TO SHORT CHANGE PEOPLE SUFFERING WITH REALLY SEVERE SYMPTOMS. SYMPTOMS CAN GET VERY BAD, AND FAMILIES CAN SUFFER, BUT IN THE VERY BEGINNING, TO BE IMMOBILIZED BY FEAR AND THINK THE WORST THING HAS HAPPENED TO YOU. IT HASN’T HAPPENED TO YOU. YOU STILL HAVE THINGS CAN YOU DO. PAT: ALDA SAYS THE ABILITY TO ENGAGE WITH PEOPLE CLEARLY IS THE KEY TO GREATER UNDERSTANDING FOR EVERYONE. THE ACTOR IS 82 AND IS MOST KNOWN FOR HIS ROLE ON THE HIT TV SHOW “M*A*S*H*” WHICH SOME OF US REMEMBER WELL. JEFF: WISH HIM THE BEST. TWO BIG CHANGES COMING TO MOVIEPASS, SERVICE IS RAISING THE PRICE OF STANDARD PLAN. IT WILL NOW COST $14.95 A MONTH UP FROM $10. THE MOVE WILL TAKE EFFECT IN 30 DAYS. MOVIEPASS IS LIMITING MAJOR RELEASES FOR TWO WEEKS THEY ARE IN SERVICE. THE CHANGES AFTER THEY BORROWED $5 MILLION LAST WEEK SO IT COULD PAY FOR THE MOVIE TICKETS. PAT: AND IT’S A VERY BRADY BIDDING WAR. THE DAILY NEWS SAYS FORMER *NSYNC — DIDN’T I SAY I WATCHED “M*A*S*H*.” FORMER *NSYNC MEMBER LANCE BASS IS ONE OF FIVE PEOPLE WHO PUT OFFERS ON THE STUDIO CITY HOUSE PORTRAYED AS A HOME OF THE BRADY BUNCH.

  • Alan rocks! The commenter below is correct. It does take the edge off neuromuscular challenges. I can attest to this. Please make it free for people humbled on disability pensions that are much lower than minimum wage.
    It's the opposite of what people generally consider to be a living wage.
    You got that Jeff Sessions??
