Audiences couldn't refuse Monday's debut of Growing Up Gotti. The reality show starring Victoria Gotti and her three well-gelled demon spawns averaged 3.2 million viewers, giving A&E its most-watched series bow in history.

Fahrenheit 9/11 won't be disqualified from Oscar's documentary race after all. On Tuesday, we reported that the pic faced possible disqualification because it ran on Cuba's state-run television, and Academy rules say a feature film can't air on the small screen within nine months of its release. Well, that ban apparently doesn't apply to pics that have been pirated. read more


Fox's alleged reality rip-off Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy ranked as last week's No. 2 show among adults 18-49 and posted a 32 percent increase over the previous week. Not to be outdone, UPN and WB saw two of their new series — Amish in the City and Blue Collar TV — get off to strong starts with 5.4 million viewers apiece.

First Ever Reality Awards MTV's...

First Ever Reality Awards
MTV's handing out awards only for its own reality shows? Wow. And it's not actually a real awards show with a red carpet, an audience full of celebs, etc. It's just two young emcees I've never seen before, offering up canned banter as they introduce clips of MTV personalities accepting their awards on tape. Bummer. Oh well, at least the clips were silly fun and the categories even sillier. Winners included Carmen Electra for Most Pause Worthy Female, and Katie and Veronica from Real World/Road Rules Inferno for Best Knuckle Up. (They fought topless, then "made up" in their acceptance clip with the now obligatory girl-on-girl kiss. Yawn. That scary Veronica girl oughta be voted most likely to be incarcerated 'cause she's clearly got anger-management issues.) Oh yeah, and Inferno's cussin' Coral was rewarded for her trashy mouth as Best M*F*. But how could Nick Lachey from Newlyweds win read more


Sopranos star Edie Falco was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, the New York Post reports. "Edie was diagnosed, treated and she's fine," says her rep. "More than five months have gone by since her last treatment and she's very healthy." The cancer treatment may explain Falco's new, shorter 'do. Meanwhile, the Emmy-winning actress is currently in rehearsals for the Broadway play 'night, Mother. read more

BB5's Non-Jolly Holly

Blonds don't always have more fun. Take Big Brother 5's latest evictee, Holly King, whose platinum hairdo and painfully high-pitched voice inspired loathing in her female housemates (especially Diane). Many of the guys seemed enthralled with her, but Holly's budding romance with cuddle-buddy Jase caused friction among his testosterone-fueled allies. (They suspected she was manipulating his decisions using her feminine wiles.) Here, the bubbly Holly defends the Jase thing and discusses her "blondness" and her future plans.

TV Guide Online: When Julie showed you the twin twist with Adria, you looked stunned. Had you any clue?
I was really in shock. But when I watched the show on TV, I remembered things... I should have caught on! Like when they had that whole mole twin conversation and they accused me of being a twin. If I had been part of that [conversation] — and not just gone to bed — I probably could have p read more
