According to Broadcasting & Cable, Allred will serve as the judge on the courtroom show which has been picked up by several local NBC affiliates in  New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, San Diego, San Francisco and Hartford, Connecticut.

Jessica Alba: I'm only getting better

For Jessica Alba, it wasn’t until she had her daughter Honor in 2008 that she learned to own her sexuality.

"I was quite shy with it," she tells Allure magazine in their August issue. "It wasn't something I embraced until I had my daughter. I saw how incredible and amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to create a life. There's a reason why certain areas of the body are desirable –- because it all leads to reproduction."

Alba, who is expecting again, says having her daughter changed her in other ways, too.

Now every chick can wear 'Steve Buscemeyes'

"Chicks with Steve Buscemeyes," the blog that features pictures of beautiful women with actor Steve Buscemi's blue eyes photoshopped over their own, has achieved full-blown meme-hood. Now, Buscemi devotees can take things one step further.

"Sopranos" supporters and "Fargo" fanatics can proudly sport their very own Steve Buscemi dresses.

An Australian clothing company called BlackMilk is rolling out tight-fitting tank dresses with scoop necks that are silk-screened with giant images of Buscemi from the chest up. He wears a furtive, closed-mouth smirk. The same image is repeated on the back of the dress.

Also available on the same style dress is a screen shot from "The Shining’s" famous “Here’s Johnny” scene.
