Tuesday August 5 is the 46th anniversary of iconic actress Marilyn Monroe's untimely passing. A memorial hosted by the Marilyn Remembered fan club begins at 11 a.m. in the Pierce Brothers' chapel in Westwood.

That evening, at 10:30 pm on Time Warner Cable, there will be a special broadcast of 'The Ultimate Marilyn - Volume 3' hosted by actor Harrison Held featuring Monroe friends and colleagues. Stanley Rubin (esteemed producer of 'River of No Return'), actress Kathleen Hughes ('Universal's Marilyn'), Sylvia Barnhardt (hairdresser to the stars and 'the woman who made Marilyn blonde'), actress/artist Diana Herbert (from Marilyn's first film 'Scudda Hoo, Scudda Hay') and renowned author John Gilmore ('Inside Marilyn Monroe') are all part of this exciting, informative and entertaining show. Marilyn fans may also watch it online in the very near future at www.HarrisonHeldStarMedia.com.

Speaking of Hollywood icons, Kat Kramer (daughter of legendary director/producer Stanley Kramer as well as Katharine Hepburn's god-daughter, singer, actress and producer) is very pleased to announce the trailer for her new web series entitled 'My Duet With Mick'! Inspired by the acclaimed film 'My Date With Drew' about pursuing one's dreams, Ms. Kramer's goal is to get legendary rock star Mick Jagger to join her in a duet, performing one of his songs on her CD entitled 'Gem Stone', a collection of Jagger songs she has covered. Proceeds from the CD will go to Music Education.
