Jordan and Ronnie, Big Brother 11
CBS has announced (most) of the 13 houseguests who will be competing for the $500,000 grand prize on Big Brother 11 this summer.
Host Julie Chen made the reveal on CBS' Early Show, but only introduced 12 players. The remaining mystery guest — which the blogosphere suggests will be a player from a past season — will be announced July 7, two days before the show's premiere.

Keshia Knight Pulliam

The 30-year-old actress may forever be remembered for her adorable character on The Cosby Show, but the work she's churning out now is a far cry from days past. In Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail (now on DVD), Pulliam plays Candie, a young woman whose choices land her in the slammer.

"She's a girl who's made some bad decisions," Pulliam tells TVGuide.com. "Due to some unfortunate circumstances, she dropped out [of college] and that's where her life took a downward spiral. She got into drug abuse and prostitution, and it's just a story about choices — and how you rebound from those choices."
That story resonated with moviegoers who poured into theaters to make the film Perry's biggest box-office success to date. Pulliam first worked ...
