While you were working...

Miranda Lambert: Take notes, Chris Brown

Miranda Lambert was serious when she posted to her Twitter account, following the 2012 Grammy Awards, that she thought Chris Brown should listen to her song, "Gunpowder and Lead."

At a performance Thursday in Amherst, Massachusetts, Lambert held up a fan-made sign encouraging the 22-year-old R&B singer to pay close attention to the track, which focuses on a woman who grabs her gun as defense against an abusive husband. The sign Lambert held read, "Take notes Chris Brown."

Fighting their way out on 'The Walking Dead'

Now this is the episode they should have returned with.

Sure, the revelation of Sophia's fate was a nice cliffhanger for the fall finale, but "The Walking Dead" should have come back guns-a-blazing, which is what we got on Sunday night's episode, instead.

First, we revisited Lori, several hours after her car flipped over and crashed, with two walkers attempting to get to her through the car windows.

Whitney Houston's dress, 'Bodyguard' earrings up for auction

Kevin Costner said at Whitney Houston's memorial service Saturday, no other woman could've portrayed "The Bodyguard's" Rachel Marron. But now the highest bidder can, at least, try and acquire the character's jewelry.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the earrings and vest that Houston wore in the 1992 blockbuster are going to be up for auction as part of the Hollywood Legends collection at Julien's Auctions. The jewelry is listed for around $600, while the vest is listed at $400.

Those two items, as well as a black gown of Houston's that's also up for auction (with a starting price of $1,000) are all expected to sell for far higher than the listed price points.

'Eastbound & Down': KP is back with a vengeance

'Eastbound & Down': KP is back with a vengeance

One minute after wrapping up Sunday's season premiere of "Eastbound & Down," I got a text from a friend with his one-sentence review: "The new 'Eastbound and Down' is epic."

Keep in mind this friend is a devout follower of the Church of Kenny Powers, and even dressed as him for Halloween before it was cool. Ordinarily, I'd take his words to heart, but I can't say I'd use those exact terms to describe the first episode in the series' last hurrah.

But I will say it was darn (this is a family blog, after all) good from start to finish.

Bethenny Frankel opens up on miscarriage

Cameras have caught reality TV star Bethenny Frankel in joyous moments as well as more difficult times, but now they've captured her revealing a heart-wrenching personal story.

The 41-year-old was speaking on the "Today" show Monday about the third season of her Bravo show, "Bethenny Ever After," which premieres tonight, when she let it slip that she'd recently had a miscarriage.

"We were pregnant with a second baby, and at eight weeks, I miscarried," Frankel revealed. "That was a very emotional experience. It had a lot of different things that came with it."
