and "hit a rough patch"
Timberlake, however, refused to discuss his relationship with Cameron Diaz, which is rumored to have hit a rough patch — allowing only he’s “not ready to settle down yet.”

Although the Mickey Mouse Club TV series premiered on October 3, 1955, the Mouseketeers made their first television appearance on July 17, 1955 - on the ABC broadcast special celebrating the opening of Disneyland.

Walt Disney was adamant that the Mouseketeers be regular kids, not actors. Producers searched schools looking for kids with that special spark.

The Mousketeers went to school 5 days a week on the Disney lot. Not only did they work 6 days but Sundays were often spent performing for the public. Being a Mousketeer wasn't easy.

The Mousketeers became close friends and remain so to this day.

Sadly, the show only ran for 3 years and 360 episodes. ABC wanted to run more ads and Walt Disney refused. His conntract forbid him from shopping the show to another network.

Jimmy Dodd died in 1964 at the too young age of 54. Roy Williams died in 1976.

Not exactly.

The Mouseketeers were teenage performers who appeared—usually, singing and dancing—on the TV show called The Mickey Mouse Club in the 1950s. Annette Funicello (shown in the photo in one of the posts) was the most popular Mousketeer.

The show was revived—obviously with different performers—in the 1970s (it was not popular and was canceled after a short run) and again from 1989 to 1994. Justin Timberlake appeared in this version of the show, about 1993 and 1994.

rough patch
to experience a lot of problems in a period in your life

Apparently, Justin and Cameron Diaz are having some problems in their relationship.
