Freaks and peeps on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'

I overdosed on TMI on Sunday night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

I really could have done without learning more about the ladies' sex lives, which they shared on Kandi’s show “Kandi Koated Nights.” Now I’m no prude, but seriously...there’s some stuff you discuss with your homegirls that's not really for public consumption. I honestly didn't need to know their "freak numbers" (which kept making me think of the sleep number bed).

But who knew NeNe was so reserved? I wonder if Peter appreciated Cynthia saying their sex life needs to be spiced up. And I thought Sheree was going to pass out when the stripper, Mr. Luscious, grabbed her out of the chair. (And speaking of TMI, I now think I could recognize Mr. Luscious from behind if ever I were to encounter him, if you know what I mean. That was too, too much.)

Mark Ruffalo talks being on terror-advisory list

Update, 12/1 10:26 a.m.: The plot thickens! Although Ruffalo told GQ that he found being on a terror-advisory list "pretty [expletive] funny," the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency tells CNN that Ruffalo isn't on such a list. In fact, the spokesperson said, "we do not have a 'list' (never had a list), nor was Mr. Ruffalo ever listed or mentioned in any of our bulletins.”

Huh. Well, for what it's worth, in a video submitted by CNN iReporter Chris Barrett, Ruffalo told Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman that the story “snowballed into something huge, something fantastical, with maybe a grain of truth at the center of it.”

Pink Floyd hit getting Hollywood treatment?

More than 30 years after its release, plans are underway for the Pink Floyd hit "Another Brick in the Wall" to be turned into a movie.

Deadline.com reports that "The Queen" producer Andy Harries is planning a film about the song that will focus on the schoolchildren who sang the track's chorus. Described as a cross between "Dead Poets Society" and "School of Rock," the biographical movie centers on Alan Renshaw, a music teacher who takes a job at a struggling north London school with the intent of stirring things up.

Renshaw's class eventually gets a gig singing on "Another Brick in the Wall," but he ends up losing his teaching job because of the tune's "We don't need no education" anti-authority lyrics.

A release date for the film has not yet been announced, as Harries still must acquire song rights and negotiate with Pink Floyd member Roger Waters, who, Deadline reports, is on tour until next year and has a reputation for being difficult.

A blog post called Shirley

Fans are mourning the loss of Leslie Nielsen today; the veteran actor passed away Sunday at the age of 84.

After appearing in dramatic roles for years in movies like “Forbidden Planet” and the TV series “The Swamp Fox,” Nielsen had what actor Michael McKean called “one of the greatest second acts in movie history,” after stealing several scenes in the comedy blockbuster, “Airplane!”

He went on to appear in many comedy spoofs afterward, most memorably as Lt. Frank Drebin in “The Naked Gun” trilogy.

Heart-wrenching decisions on 'The Walking Dead'

As the first season of "The Walking Dead" winds down, the constant struggle for survival has taken its toll among those camped out near Atlanta, as seen in Sunday night's episode.

Picking up where we left off last week, Andrea was still in shock, unable to leave the side of her dead sister. When Amy started to stir as a zombie, Andrea told her she was sorry before shooting her in the head (once again, an incredible performance by Laurie Holden).

While other members of the camp were forced to make sure that their loved ones were gone for good, Jim was found to have been bitten by a walker.
