'Real Housewives of OC' reunion brings the drama

Let me just say I have never missed an episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" since it began airing in 2006. And as the “Orange County” Housewives have come and gone over the years, the meanness, cattiness and drama (thankfully) have not.

The first part of season 6’s reunion special last night was no different. It had the usual suspects: sparkling mini dresses, long blonde hair extensions, shocking accusations, major life changes and someone walking off the set! That's exactly why I love these reunion shows.

The “RHOOC” reunion was one hour of targeted attacks. In one corner were newfound friends Peggy Tanous, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney. In the other were “Housewives” Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino.

Sex, lies and chewing gum on 'The Killing'

[Editor’s Note: This post contains spoilers for the Sunday, June 12 episode of AMC’s “The Killing.”]

This season’s penultimate episode left us with a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get started!

Things continued to look up for the Richmond campaign when the mayor’s waterfront project – and cornerstone of his re-election bid – screeched to a halt when the land was discovered to be an Indian burial ground. I’m torn between making a Poltergeist joke and a Nelsonesque guffaw, but bottom line: Adams appeared to be all but finished.

The humbled mayor later met with a gleeful Gwen and handed over what all television politicians dread: an ominous Envelope O’ Secrets™ that could spell trouble for Richmond. More on that in a bit.

'Ice Loves Coco' and he's not afraid to show it

Where to start with E!’s premiere of the new reality show, "Ice Loves Coco”? I thought I knew exactly what to expect, but the "we love each other and don't give a [expletive] what the world thinks" duo surprised me.

The half-hour show follows rapper-turned-actor Ice-T and his über-voluptuous wife Coco at work and at play. We watch them shop for doggy accessories, discuss whether their dog Spartacus needs a doggy agent and see Coco work with her team (consisting of two people) to figure out how to approach an upcoming photo shoot. That's all in the first 15 minutes of the show.

A considerable amount of time is given to a photo shoot Coco does for a wedding couture company called "House of Bridal~ Couture." I knew the minute I heard they wanted her to do a fashion shoot for them it was going to be all about Coco fitting into an impossibly tight and unforgiving dress.

Celebs react to Tracy Morgan controversy

Everyone from fellow comics to his boss, Tina Fey, had some words for Tracy Morgan following his recent rant against gays during a stand up gig: it wasn't funny.

"I'm glad to hear that Tracy apologized for his comments," said a statement from Fey who is the creator of NBC's "30 Rock" on which Morgan co-stars. "Stand-up comics may have the right to 'work out' their material in its ugliest and rawest form in front of an audience, but the violent imagery of Tracy's rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community."

Morgan apologized Friday for his remarks which included saying he would stab his son to death if he ever discovered he was gay. FULL POST
