Here are the top celebrity and entertainment stories from Fox News Flash. Check out the entertainment highlights from this past week.
NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Trolls on social media won’t be able to stop Donna DErrico from donning a bikini.
The “Baywatch” alum uploaded a video on Instagram on Tuesday, showing off her beach-ready body and sun-kissed tan in a hot pink bikini. She opted for a natural style and let her brunette hair fall.
The actress gave her nearly 900,000 followers a look from all directions as she stood in front of her bed.
The description for the 54-year-video old’s read, “Thanks for all the comments on my last post. “I read all of them. Even while I’m far from flawless, I feel pretty darn fantastic.
The celebrity revealed, “I took a little break and travelled across America with my dog. “This is a lovely country we live in. I didn’t realize how gorgeous it was until I drove through it and stopped to take it all in. Have a fantastic day.”
The statement was made a few weeks after DErrico responded on Instagram to critics who claimed she was “too old to wear a bikini.” She replied by uploading a picture of herself wearing a pink bikini.
She began her caption, “Quite a few women grumbled about the Fourth of July video I posted in a red, white, and blue bikini because they believed I was “classier than that” and “too old to wear a bikini” and, my favorite, “desperate.”
DErrico continued, “Let me tell you something that might surprise you. “I truly have no restrictions on what I dress or do. On that point, here I am squatting on a coffee table in a bikini.
She ended her post from July 16 with, “For all those inquiring, no I didn’t remove the red, white, and blue Fourth of July video.” It’s still available on my page under the “reels” tab.
DErrico said exclusively to Fox News Digital, “Good Lord, just wear it,” when asked what advice she would give to other ladies who want to wear a bikini but are concerned about what other people might say.
“Life is shorter than you think, and there will always be a rotten apple in someone’s mouth. Simply enjoy yourself, don’t harm others, and engage in activities that bring you joy “she suggested. “The overwhelming amount of positive feedback on my post on Instagram has me speechless. I’ve actually started crying because of it.
“My hero father even contacted me to talk to me about it. There are still some trolls who mock me for sitting on my coffee table and say my boobs are ugly in my direct messages, but it is all just empty chatter. I’m already planning my next location where I can take pictures of myself squatting in a bikini. The Golden Gate Bridge, perhaps.”

Following the incident, D’Errico admitted that she still has trouble with her body image, but she has been “working on it.”
She recalled, “I was a really shy youngster and was badly bullied in school. “I left home as a young adult to pursue my dream of being an actor in Hollywood, only to relapse into bullying. After reading The Four Agreements, I saw how much of a difference it makes in one’s life to cease taking other people’s insults personally.
“Even now, when I falter and begin to take things personally, I have to go back and reread that passage in order to maintain my resistance to their Jedi mind tricks. I believe that right now, people are becoming weary of all the judgemental nonsense. Or perhaps I’m just getting older and care less. I think it’s a bit of both.”
