NC woman sues over ‘Monster-in-Law’ script

RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina woman has sued Jennifer Lopez, Jane Fonda and others associated with the making of the 2005 movie “Monster-in-Law,” saying the movie was similar to a script she wrote years earlier.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that Sheri Gilbert of Wilson filed the copyright lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Raleigh. She and her husband, Willie Gilbert Jr., say they are owed some of the almost $155 million the movie made worldwide.

Sheri Gilbert says the movie is similar to a script she wrote in 1998 that was based in part on her own mother-in-law problems.

An attorney representing Warner Bros. and 33 other defendants said the “mother-in-law” character is not unusual and has asked that the lawsuit be dismissed.

Gilbert said the similarities are more than coincidence.

SALISBURY, N.C. — The Salisbury Historic Preservation Commission will learn more about a proposal to tear down a home that once belonged to an actor who starred in “Rosemary’s Baby.”

The Salisbury Post reported that the commission on Thursday will hear a committee report about the house, which once belonged to Sidney and Suzanne Blackmer.

Their son, Jonathan, has gotten permission to tear down the house, which suffered fire damage in 1984. But the commission delayed demolition for 365 days.

Sidney Blackmer starred in “Rosemary’s Baby” and also won a Tony for his role in “Come Back, Little Sheba” in 1950. Suzanne Blackmer is remembered for holding Donald Trump at bay when he
wanted her to abandon her Manhattan apartment.
