Money for cancer and heart disease goes to ‘family father’ leading campaign against Rasmus Paludan and Stram Kurs. The backman of a much-publicized fundraising, which is to promote more immigration, has not told the Danes and the press the whole truth. Nicolai Würtz has emerged as “ordinary family father” well helped by all Danish media. But it is not a completely random ‘good-hearted’ citizen, who got a good idea on a Tuesday night on Facebook. Nicolai Würtz stands as powerful TV manager behind huge money collections for associations such as the Danish Cancer Society and the Heart Association. The truth is that Nicolai Würtz often acts as a professional money collector in his job as a media manager. Only in 2018 did he raise up to DKK 142 million for the Danish Cancer Society. Part of this money goes directly to pay ‘familiare’ Nicolai Würtz. Earn big money at the Danish Cancer Society Let’s look at the ‘random family father’ capabilities when it comes to campaigns and fundraising. Each year, when the calendar writes in October, the TV writer Nicolai Würtz pulls in the workwear in connection with what can immediately look like a piece of “benevolent” work. He is going to collect millions of dollars for the campaign ‘Crack Cancer’ for the Danish Cancer Society. But nothing is free when you are a professional money collector. Cancer collection ‘Crack Cancer’ helps pay Nicolai Würtz’s huge monthly salary as a media manager. We’re talking big amounts of money. Here Nicolai Würtz is seen in the so-called “study control” with headphones on, where he is ready to receive millions of Danes’ own money. Behind the scenes is Nicolai Würtz, who manages the battle when the Danes sit and see ‘Crack Cancer’ on the television.
AMERICAN TV host Julie Chen has made a public show of support for her husband, CBS chief Les Moonves, who faces a wave of allegations of sexual misconduct.
Chen stood by her husband when he first publicly faced allegations back in July, but when six new women came forward this week, the talk show host took leave from her day job, as a panellist on daytime show The Talk, and maintained a public silence after releasing a brief statement saying she needed to “be with family.”
But it was in another of her on-screen roles, hosting US Big Brother, than Chen let the public know where her allegiances lie.
Signing off for the episode as she sat opposite a contestant from the show, Chen bid viewers farewell.
“From outside of the Big Brother house with Brent, I’m Julie Chen-Moonves, goodnight,” she said, adding her husband’s surname to her own — for the first time in the history of the show she’s done that, EW notes.
This show of support comes as horrifying details emerge of the allegations against Moonves, who stood down from his role as President and CEO of the network that also employs Chen.
The New Yorker magazine reported the women’s new accusations, which included Moonves forcing them to perform oral sex and retaliating when his advances were turned away.
Moonves acknowledged relations with three of the women but said they were consensual, and that he had never used his position to hurt the careers of women.
In a statement to the magazine, Moonves said the “appalling accusations” are untrue, but he acknowledged consensual relations with three of the women before he started working at CBS.
Viewers fiercely debated Chen’s show of support for her husband, many criticising the presenter for standing by her man given the slew of detailed sexual abuse allegations he faces:
“Instead of driving her to a restaurant, [Moonves] parked on a side street, forcibly grabbed her head, slammed it into his crotch, then ejaculated into her mouth.”

What Julie Chen MOONVES did tonight was not brave. The many women who spoke out against her husband’s decades of assaults and harassment are brave.— nottameatball (@nottameatball)

Celebrity or not it’s HER marriage. She gets to decide to stay or leave. I’m sure she let her husband know how she feels. They’ll work it out together. @JulieChen— Laurie T (@EmilyVsMom)

HERE’S the best of TV this weekend.
REMEMBERING ROBIN WILLIAMS
I’VE seen a lot of big name celebrities pass in my years as a journalist — Whitney Houston, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, George Michael and Anna Nicole Smith spring to mind — but none of them hit home quite like Robin Williams.
When most people think of Williams, his frenetic madness understandably springs to mind. But he also had a tender side (Good Will Hunting, What Dreams May Come) and a hearty independent spirit (Boulevard, The Night Listener) that was worth celebrating.
Of course, his devotion to family entertainment was unparalleled.
This weekend you can catch some of the highlights from his breathtaking body of work — including Jumanji, The Fisher King, One Hour Photo and one of the most beloved comedies ever — Mrs Doubtfire.

A FACEBOOK post by police in northwest England is going viral after they posted a photo of a thief who is the spitting image of David Schwimmer.
The Blackpool Police posted a photo of the man with the caption: “Do you recognise this man? We want to speak to him in relation to a theft at a Blackpool restaurant on the 20th September.”
Within 12 hours, the post had received more than 75,000 comments with the majority of them making jokes about the thief’s likeness to the Friends star.
“I know who he is,” wrote Facebook user Jayne Freeman. “He has a son named Ben, loves the taste of wedding cake and he hangs around with some people in a coffee shop. He has a dinosaur fetish. Hope that helps with your inquiries.”
“I have just seen him at Blackpool zoo with a monkey on his shoulder,” Karen Long wrote in reference to Ross’s pet monkey on the hit sitcom, Marcel.
Danny Harrod joked on Facebook that people should give the thief a break.
“Calm down everyone. This bloke could have fallen on hard times. Maybe it hadn’t been his week, his month or even his year,” he wrote.
One of the best comments came from James Peden who wrote: “If he’s jumped in Blackpool sea you’ll never catch him. I’ve heard he’s a really good Schwimmer.”
Referencing another Friends star, Sam Marshall said: “When questioned he couldn’t remember a thing, he drew a LeBlanc.”
Blackpool Police had a bit of fun with the comments too.
“Thank you to everyone for your speedy responses. We have investigated this matter thoroughly and have confirmed that David Schwimmer was in America on this date. We’re so sorry it has to be this way,” the police wrote.
News.com.au understands the thief is still at large.
Married At First Sight’s former adult virgin has narrowly dodged another visit to the ER after his wife dropped a revelation about her past that scandalised him to his pure core.
Lauren has been so good about Matthew being an adult virgin. Apologies, former adult virgin. But she’s getting frustrated with his innocence. So she decides to let him in on her past. She’s hoping it will enhance their intimacy and give her relationship the kick it desperately needs. His reaction ruins everything.
Every night on this show, a new revelation surfaces. The most shocking moment is not the adult virgin being hospitalised or the C-word being hurled around. It’s not even Lizzie’s pizza-toast.
The most shocking moment of the entire series is these thongs on a coathanger. The attempt at tidying-up and displaying something quintessentially bogan is kind of a metaphor for this entire show.
Jessika’s still upset she was called fake the other night and it’s just getting ridiculous. Lady, get real — you’ve had so much work done you’re barely recognisable anymore!
After being labelled a nasty cantaloupe at last night’s commitment ceremony, Ines has had to overhaul her look and go incognito. She couldn’t even walk down the street this morning without people yelling out from passing cars, “Hey ya big cantaloupe!”
She’s darkened her hair and bought a leather motorcycle jacket. To really throw people off, she’s even smiling. It’s like a completely different person.
Ines and Bronson roll up to John Aiken’s office for their mandatory therapy session and, in the space of 12 hours, Ines has really changed her attitude. She’s just super positive and ready for change.
“My life sucks right now,” she tells us.
Everyone’s interpretation about what transpired last night on the couch is different. Avoiding a battle, Bronson takes responsibility for his part.
“I felt disgusting,” he admits. “I could’ve used a lot better words to describe how I was feeling or how I thought she’d been treating me. I could’ve used a lot better vocabulary. And I’m sorry I used that language.”
And now Bronson expects Ines to own up to her behaviour. She stares at the ground. Anything to say, Ines?
“I felt highly attacked,” she sniffs.
Yes, but, is there anything you want to apologise for?
“No,” she shrugs after a long pause.
So there wasn’t anything you did? Anything you regret?
She stares blankly.
“I don’t regret anything,” she eventually whispers.
Bronson has to use all his willpower to not call her a cantaloupe again.
Ines says what she needs to in order to get John Aiken off her back. She eventually just mumbles some crap about being committed to Bronson and the experiment and then she makes a break for it.
But it’s all a lie. She’s not committed to Bronson. There are bigger plans in the works.
“I have been thinking about another husband and if he is DTF,” she tells us while making a cup of tea.
She lays down on the couch and embarks on some old fashioned online thirsting. Successfully locating Sam’s Instagram, she scrolls through digital reams of shirtless selfies.
“He is so hot. It’s crazy. Like, he is stunning,” she smiles to us while looking at Sam’s slicked-up body.
And then she does it. She slides right into his DMs.
“Hello,” she types, adding that emoji of the chicken hatching out of the egg. It’s a bizarrely cute and innocent emoji for Ines to use. But it only enhances her unhinged ways.
In an apartment down the hall, Sam’s phone vibrates. He looks at the message. And then he looks up at Lizzie.
“She wants to meet up in the sauna,” Sam tells us before reading out one of the messages. “‘Come over bubba’. I’m her bubba, apparently.”
Ew. We’d rather touch Lizzie’s carpet shirt.
Upstairs, Lauren and Matthew are getting just as adventurous.
“What’s your favourite colour?” Matt sheepishly asks.
He ventures further. “What’s your favourite meal?”
Lauren is getting frustrated. She has been so patient with Matthew. His innocence was endearing for a week. But now she really just wants some action.
When Matthew asks his next innocent question, Lauren decides to drop a bombshell that will shake him to his pure core.
“What’s something about you no one else would know?” he giggles, thinking his wife will reveal what her favourite Disney movie is.
Lauren doesn’t even think about her answer.
“I used to be a lesbian,” she says.
“You don’t know the half of me yet,” she tells her husband.
Matthew’s stunned. He misses the simple days — where sex was for old people and talking about your favourite colour was more than enough. The days where voraciously reading next to each other felt so good.
“I don’t know what to ask now. I really don’t,” he stutters to us. “I find asking questions really awkward. So for me the obvious solution was say nothing.”
Lauren’s confession hangs in the air and Matthew doesn’t acknowledge it. Mainly because he doesn’t know how. It infuriates her. She was so supportive when he admitted he was a virgin and she has been so understanding with his intimacy issues. And now he’s not giving her anything.
“It shocked Matt. He went silent and won’t talk. He just shuts down,” she tells us. “I’m not impressed to be honest. That stuff should just flow. It should just come naturally. He should have a thousand things to ask me.”
Lizzie has been feeling guilty about calling out Ines at last night’s commitment ceremony. It’s been rolling around in her head and she wants to make good — even though Ines has not given Lizzie a second thought and would actually be more touched if Lizzie made an effort to stay far away from her.
We see Lizzie wondering the hallway with yet another family block of chocolate.
Elizabeth bursts into Ines’s apartment and plonks down on the couch, handing over the really big block of Dairy Milk as a peace offering.
Ines is just delighted to have Lizzie in her personal space.
“I can’t take Elizabeth seriously because she looks like The Joker and Big Bird had a baby,” she spits to us.
Lizzie is so scattered and intense that it hinders her ability to read social situations.
“I’m so sorry,” she says, staring into Ines’ eyes.
“It’s OK,” Ines snaps.
“No. It’s not. I’m sorry.”
“Nope. I’m the one who should be sorry.”
In a bid to get Lizzie out of her apartment, Ines tells her there’s a Napoleon Perdis down the road that’s having a closing down sale. Lizzie’s out of there in a flash.
“I’ll eat the chocolate, while I think about her husband,” Ines grins to us, clutching the chocolate to her chest.
It’s a purely psychotic moment. And I can’t wait to recreate it and do an impersonation every time I eat a family block of Cadbury.
