Conan's tour ends with a bang in Atlanta

When Conan O'Brien took the stage of Atlanta's Fabulous Fox Theater on Monday night, he vowed to the audience that this show, the final stop on his "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television" tour, would be the best.

He wanted them to come away from the show thinking the three-hour musical comedy extravaganza was "sort of worth it," a phrase which was soon chanted by the audience as O'Brien reacted in mock horror.

"Team CoCo" was out in full force, filling the theater, and the crowd practically ate out of the palm of the comedian's hand. O'Brien's trademark schtick and taped pieces (including a riotous one featuring Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, with Atlanta and landmarks from the city dubbed into his dialogue) got the biggest reaction from the audience.

Salahis confirmed on 'Real Housewives of D.C.'

Bravo has released the list of "Real Housewives" for the Washington, D.C. installment of the franchise, and surprise, surprise: Michaele Salahi is indeed one of them.

Michaele crashed a White House state dinner with her husband Tareq last November, and the couple's media rep confirmed in March that they had landed roles on the Bravo reality show.

Bravo declined to comment at the time, but on Tuesday, the network sent out a statement revealing the new cast, and it turns out that Salahi will be among the five "real housewives."All of the women are supposed to have connections to “D.C. power players” as well as having “their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings, and fundraisers in Washington society," according to Bravo's statement.

Tattoos and sing-a-longs on 'The Bachelorette'

Last night on "The Bachelorette," Chris told the 11 remaining suitors that they would be traveling around the world to win Ali's heart, and the journey was set to begin in New York. They had one hour to pack for this trip, but given that they are men, it wasn't going to take more than five minutes, tops.

There were two individual dates and one group date in the works. The first solo date went to Kasey, who said "life couldn't be better" thanks to the one-on-one. He needs a more fascinating life, as well as subtitles.

Ali, who may have lost her fear of flying, took Kasey on a helicopter ride over Manhattan. The two then had a picnic by the sunset, which Kasey ruined by singing to Ali.

Eminem: “I was a couple hours away from death”

Happy Tuesday, Marquee blog readers! "Showbiz Tonight's" Brooke Anderson here. I just got back from the Staples Center in downtown L.A., where Eminem, Usher and Jane’s Addiction were among the musical acts at a concert kicking off the E3 video game convention. The big bash was sponsored by Activision and Eminem’s no stranger to video games – his music appears in Activision’s ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops.” I was offered a special chance to talk to Eminem before he went on stage.

We met up with Eminem in a VIP lounge, and he talked about his new album, “Recovery” - which hits stores next Monday - and also really opened up about the trials he’s faced over the past several years.

This latest disc, he said, reflects a healthier place in his life.
