Two new additions to 'The Colony'
This week’s episode of “The Colony" started off with everyone complaining about how dirty they were. This was immediately overshadowed by the fact that Jim, who apparently had regressed to age 4, stated that they needed to get rid of all the “doo-doo” in the port-a-potty.
Still reeling from the shock that a grown man would say "doo-doo" on TV, viewers had to watch as the colonists poured out all the contents of their port-a-potty. Thankfully, television treats fecal matter the same way it treats boobs, and it was blurred out.
Sustenance is still an issue for the colonists, especially since they made one week of food last for two. They’ve lost a lot of weight and are feeling hungry all the time, and viewers are even given a run-down of how much weight each colonist has lost, ranging from two to almost twenty pounds.

'The Colony' lights up with purified pig fat
“The Colony’s” second episode of the new season opened two hours after last week's attack, and the colonists decided that they need to step up their security.
On their fourth day in the encampment, the participants woke up exhausted, scarred and feeling dirty. They began building window blockades and defense screens to deter attackers, but the power tools they’d found earlier were running low on juice, meaning they didn’t have the proper equipment, or electricity, to heighten security.
After a lot of whining about the loss of battery power in the tools they’re lucky to even have, the colonists decided they needed to make a generator.

Discovery's 'The Colony' makes a return
The Discovery Channel’s “The Colony” is back with its second season, centering on the struggle of seven “survivors” of a contrived viral outbreak to stay alive.
But right from the start of last night's premiere, some of the excitement dissipated as the show opened with a necessary note: “Participants in ‘The Colony’ experiment are presented with situations that have been created by the producers. They receive support from off-camera experts when their health or safety may be in danger.”
It’s good to know that the participants aren’t in any real danger, but it definitely takes some of the thrilling edge off that very scary question - “What would you do if the world ended?”

Splitsville for The Dream and Christina Milian
After being married less than a year, Christina Milian and Terius ‘The-Dream’ Nash have decided to separate, according to UsMagazine.com.
“The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet,” The-Dream’s rep told Us magazine. “They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward."
The news of the couple’s split comes at a convenient time, as The-Dream was recently caught on camera with his assistant, Melissa Santiago, according to Us. In one photo, The-Dream is being straddled by Santiago as the pair plays in the Caribbean. The producer-singer was not wearing his wedding ring.
The-Dream and Milian eloped in September 2009 and said their vows again in Rome in December. Milian gave birth to Violet just five months ago.

Fergie: I'm both the Madonna and the whore
Back with the Black Eyed Peas after her solo stint, Fergie is as hot as ever. B.E.P. is currently on a worldwide tour - and recently performed at the World Cup opening ceremony - but the 35-year-old singer still hasn’t run out of steam with her crazy schedule.
"I’d love to have structure in my life but it doesn’t always work out like that,” she told Cosmopolitan UK. “I’d decided to take time off, but then I got the offer for ‘Nine,’ and I’d have regretted turning that down for the rest of my life. So I learned to fly by the seat of my pants."
When the singer-turned-actress signed on for a supporting role in the film, she had to gain a few pounds for the part – and it was a change her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, didn’t seem to mind.

Will 'Deathly Hallows' part 1 have enough action?
If the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" teaser is any indication, the much-anticipated finale to the magical sensation that has gripped the world is looking to be spectacular all-around. Granted, Daniel Radcliffe wasn’t given many lines in the 2:27 trailer, but we're going for optimism here.
But it does flash through at least a dozen pivotal scenes from the 784-page book, giving fans a taste of what is to come - and it really is a trailer tailored for true Harry Potter fans (such as myself, of course).
Only those in the know will recognize scenes that are sure to be riveting, including the trio’s misadventures in Gringotts, Nagini’s attack on Harry and the fiery escape from the Room of Requirement.
