Colin Quinn didn't mean what he said about Gadhafi

Comedian and actor Colin Quinn may have meant for his tweets about Gadhafi's death to be taken as jokes, but it doesn't seem like many were laughing.

The former "Saturday Night Live" star tweeted following news of the Libyan dictator's death, "Another great innovator who started in the 80's and regained popularity recently has died. Say hello to Mr. Jobs, Mr. Khaddafi."

He continued, "I know one thing, when it all boils down to it, I think we all agree, he did more good than bad, and that's all any of us can expect. He made people smile and that's something not most people in Libya can say. To me it's all about longevity and this man lasted. Like Tony Bennett."

Jill Zarin: 'Housewives' was just a platform for me

Jill Zarin: 'Housewives' was just a platform for me

Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop and Kelly Bensimon were not invited back for season 5 of “The Real Housewives of New York,” and at least one of the ladies is totally fine with it. Zarin spoke to Parade.com about being let go by Bravo and her future plans.

Zarin, 48, says she had a hand in her firing. “I sort of let it happen,” she claims.

Jill also has her own theory as to why Bravo switched up the cast of her former show. “In television, it's about what you can do to be more dramatic and keep the viewers,” she explains. “I do think it gets to a point where some of the fans say, 'I've had enough.' I think that's one of the reasons why they changed the cast on New York.”

Forget about money at Jon Bon Jovi's new restaurant.

That's because there are no prices on the menu of the JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, New Jersey. Visitors there will be able to pay for their meals via volunteer hours.

The singer announced the opening of the community kitchen, which is  a program offered through his Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, on Wednesday. The project to feed the hungry will be supported by  cash payments from customers who are able to pay a suggested donation, or more if they so choose.

A visit to Phil's alma mater on 'Modern Family'

A visit to Phil's alma mater on 'Modern Family'

Go Bullfrogs... er, Bulldogs!

Wednesday night's "Modern Family" was a tour de force for Phil, who gets this week's MVP for doing his darndest to embarrass Haley as he showed her around his old campus.

When he tracked her down to a notorious fraternity house, he of course chastised Haley for flirting with a college guy who looks like her dad (it turns out he was an old family friend, still in high school, who looked nothing like Phil... and his parents were a few feet away).
