The Originals has only just begun to uncover the first family's wealth of secrets.

"It's game time!"
Of all the changes Bravo's late-night series Watch What Happens: Live has seen through the years — adding an audience, scoring big-name guests and airing nightly, among others — one thing that has remained constant is host Andy Cohen's love of games. Whether it's "Plead the Fifth" with Lindsay Lohan, messing around with a Real Housewife or getting an A-list celebrity like Liam Neeson to suck helium, viewers watch Cohen not only have a (sometimes drunken) blast with guests, but get them to reveal juicy scoop or drop some major shade.
Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder

Lena Dunham is defending herself after a website alleged she abused her sister based on an excerpt from her new book.
In the passage from Not That Kind of Girl, Dunham describes asking her mother about the female anatomy as it related to Dunham and her younger sister Grace. "One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn't resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked... My mother didn't bother asking why I had opened Grace's vagina. This was within the spectrum of things I did. She just on her knees and looked for herself. It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been a success."
