While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • An excerpt from an upcoming book on morning TV alleges that Ann Curry suffered through a hellish work environment up until her departure last summer, including, but not limited to, producer-commissioned blooper reels and "who wore it better?" comparisons to Big Bird. [NYTimes]
  • Dick Van Dyke has canceled an upcoming appearance in New York due to fatigue and a "yet-to-be-diagnosed neurological disorder," but a source for the star has added that he's remaining in good spirits. [Us Weekly]
  • To celebrate Superman's 75th birthday, Cleveland's city hall will light up today in Superman's colors, and travelers can nosh on birthday cake at the airport's display dedicated to the superhero. [Vanity Fair]
  • NeNe Leakes, now that she's back with her main man, Gregg, is getting a spinoff show. "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star will next appear in "I Dream of Nene: The Wedding." [THR]
  • As far as Nick Lachey's concerned, Kim Kardashian is responsible for her fame, not him. Although the reality star says that her date with the boy band singer in 2006 paved the way because it blew up in the tabloids, Lachey has a different story: "Let's just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside. ... There are certain ways to play this game, and some people play it well." [Details]
  • Stephen Colbert has been extra on fire this week. Following his rousing monologue dedicated to Boston, Colbert tackled "Accidental Racist" on Wednesday ... and this was the result:

    I remember the flood of '93 here. It was so bad it pulled coffins out of the ground & they literally floated through town in areas close to the Mo River. Never seen anything like it. I dont know anyone who didnt have at least one pair of dry socks in their jacket pocket or purse at all times. Amazing how much better you can feel by just putting on a pair of dry socks at times like that lol.

    I think Triumphs ok in the chinese joint. Its the (stereotype alert) Korean & Vietnamese places he needs to watch out for. They'll friggin eat you & use your tie for a napkin man. But at least you can lick your butt to get the taste of the chitty shrimp out of your mouth.

    Howdy all. Happy Birthday Superman! Thats cool even if he is one of the worst superheros ever. He just has too many powers. The original series & Christopher Reeves movies are cool, but he was just too good, & that gets boring. Hilarious you cant say dlck van d-yke's name here. Way cool dude. I still watch the DVD show if I come across it, & his movies Lt. Robin Cruso & Chitty Chitty Bang Bang are great. Not a big fan of Mary Poppins, but love the chimney sweep song & dance. And thank you Lachey for giving us Kim K. I sincerely mean that, & everyone here knows it. You should do your own version of Ray J's "I Hit It First" to shut him & Kanye both up. You still treading water Peace? Gets old huh? I really feel your long tiresome day Vixen. Seems the older I get, the more of those I have.

    Didn't he not too long ago got married? If that's the case, maybe his fatigue is because he is getting too much of a good thing (if you know what I mean). It's okay to come up for air Mr. Van D.yke; remember you're not a spring chicken anymore..lol

      I have to work this weekend but things are going to change soon. I would say more, but I don't feel like typing or talking much..ugh. I guess I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Pour a gallon of espresso down my throat and nobody talk, and I'll be fine.

      Hey Peace! D!ck Van Dy ke reminds me of an old saying "You never slow down, you'll never grow old". Good for him that he's still trying to make appearances at his age. Hopefully his condition is nothing serious. I actually had a scary day today. My family insisted on going to a chinese restaurant. Just as any dog should be, I was terrified. I managed to resist all their attempts to lure me into the kitchen as I have no wish for my name to be changed to General Tso. However, when the chef took a break, I did sneak into the kitchen and left some wan-ton poop on his wok for him.

      Be careful of those places, Triumph. They'll end up making you part of their menu. That was nice of ya to leave him a little "gifty". Good boy! Lol!
