Sally Jessy Raphael plans on returning to TV

After exiting daytime television in 2002, Sally Jessy Raphael – she of those iconic red glasses – is brewing plans to make a comeback.

Raphael revealed the news on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” Wednesday when she, along with other former talk show hosts Montel Williams, Ricki Lake, Geraldo Rivera and Phil Donahue, sat down with Winfrey to discuss life after daytime talk.

Raphael, who hosted a popular talk show for 19 years before calling it quits, said that at first “It was two weeks of great, ‘I don’t have to get up!’ And then it was seven years of, why doesn’t anybody call me?” But now she’s “doing a show about a talk show host who is asked to leave the air and what happens to her after that.”

Postcard from Music City: Countdown to CMAs

Nashville is always buzzing the week of the CMA Awards, but this year, the star power has been kicked up a notch.

It started with Monday night's premiere of "Country Strong," which was filmed in Music City earlier this year with Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw and Leighton Meester.

Then on Tuesday, the stars of the movie held court during joint media interviews at Union Station, a 19th century train depot that's been restored into an elegant hotel. Guest rooms are featured in the picture, and a dramatic press conference scene was shot beneath a giant clock in the lobby.

Lynda Carter to Megan Fox: Don't trash Wonder Woman

Lynda Carter has some fighting words for Megan Fox: Stop trashing Wonder Woman.

During a recent appearance on "Fox and Friends," Carter, who starred as Wonder Woman in the popular '70s TV series, was asked whether she thought Fox would be a good fit for the upcoming small-screen reboot.

"Megan Fox actually kind of trashed Wonder Woman,” Carter, 59, said. “She said she thought it was dumb, like ‘what’s the big whoop making people tell the truth.’ I like her, I just thought she shouldn’t trash Wonder Woman.”

Diddy's Sean John flagship to close

Looks like the doors will soon close for good on the flagship store for P. Diddy's Sean John clothing line.

According to Women's Wear Daily, the Manhattan store, which first opened back in 2004, will shut down at the end of the year. A spokesperson released a statement citing "inadequate selling space" as a driving factor in the closing.

Earlier, the clothing company launched a $2.5 million lawsuit against the owner of the building, located at 475 Fifth Avenue, claiming the scaffolding had been interfering with foot traffic since 2006, cutting the company's revenue in half.

Sean John did announce that they are looking to bring stores to New York and L.A. in the future.

First Italian American group Unico National criticized the MTV series for reinforcing stereotypes, and now Salsano is facing similar sentiments over her VH1 show, "My Big Friggin' Wedding."

The bridal-themed reality series follows five outrageous couples as they plan their over-the-top nuptials. Many of the cast members are Italian, and according to Unico, they are being both stereotyped and exploited.
