Kate Gosselin and Miley Cyrus
We saw some classic misjudgments this week: Questionable dancing, talking too much, crushing your own knuckles, cooking a human heart — wait, what? The last two, mercifully, are make-believe. The first two unfortunately aren't. It was a huge week for not-so-great decisions, even if we don't include one by a certain New Hampshire resident. Welcome to Top Moments, strange-decisions edition.
Ever pass ridiculously over-the-top mansions and ask yourself how those people became so well-off? Joan Rivers has, and she's about to knock on some very expensive doors to get the answer in her new series How'd You Get So Rich?
See how Joan Rivers has changed through the years
"I always would pass by places in the strangest cities — huge houses, big money, gorgeous cars — and always would say, 'How'd they get so rich?'" Rivers told TVGuide.com at the show's launch party. "So I thought: Wouldn't it be fun to do a show where you just go to the door and ask them."

"It will be my distinct pleasure to honor a true comedy legend. The One and Only, The Great, Joan Rivers," Griffin said in a statement. "I mean, not that Pam Anderson wasn't a comedy legend or anything... Let's just say it will be an evening of highs and lows. I will be roasting Joan with more ...

Newly "hired" Joan Rivers gave her competitor Annie Duke a big hug after winning the final face-off on Celebrity Apprentice — but that doesn't mean the two will be friendly any time soon.
"We're not going to be BFFs," Rivers told TVGuide.com about her future interactions with the famous poker player. "It's a shame, because I think she's a brilliant poker player, but she plays life like poker and I don't. I play life like ...
It's been a fiery season of Celebrity Apprentice — especially between finalists Joan Rivers and Annie Duke.
The poker champ stopped by TV Guide Network's TV Watercooler to set the record straight about their feud and about Rivers' comment that Duke is "worse than Hitler." She also opened up about whether the fighting on the show has been real and how she feels about Melissa Rivers' critical Twitter posts about her.

Cheers to TV's most unexpectedly grade-A treat: Z-Rock. If This is Spinal Tap and Curb Your Enthusiasm had a baby, it'd look like IFC's semi-improvised comedy series about Z02, a real-life Brooklyn metal band by night who pay the bills by playing kids' music as the Z Brothers by day. The power trio's members are surprisingly adept actors, and they're ably supported by stand-up Lynne Koplitz as their foul-mouthed but loving manager she's like a sexier Susie Essman. Aptly, the guest list includes comics (Joan Rivers, Gilbert Gottfried) and rockers (just wait til you see the Z Brothers play a bris with Blues Traveler's John Popper). In short, Z rocks!

After being kicked off of British talk show Loose Women (the U.K.'s version of The View) for swearing on live air, Joan Rivers has issued an apology. Sort of. According to People, the comedienne said in a statement, "Yes, I swore, and I'm so f---ing sorry." Rivers was promoting her new live show Joan Rivers: A Work in Progress By a Life in Progress when the conversation turned to difficult celebrities on the red carpet. Rivers then dropped the F-bomb and the grown-up word for poo to describe Russell Crowe. (Watch for yourself.)In her defense, Rivers thought she was on delay, even saying before uttering the offending phrase, "Get ready to bleep this." When the words went out uncensored, the host apologized, saying "Joan didn't realize we were absolutely live," and when the show went to commercial break, Rivers was asked to leave the set. Still, Rivers is able to laugh at the incident. "It's funny: Offstage, I hardly ever use profanity," she said in her statement. "My favorite four-...

Sarah Drew and Chris Pratt, Everwood
Nestled between the countless procedural dramas and reality shows that tend to dominate the prime-time lineup, the WB drama Everwood (Mondays at 9 pm/ET) has managed to keep viewers coming back for a weekly dose of romance and comedy. But will that loyalty be enough to secure the in-limbo fan favorite a spot on the CW lineup (to be revealed this week)? If executive producer Rina Mimoun has her way, fans will follow the Colorado kids to college next fall. Until then, the 4-year-old series is set to wrap its current run on June 5, but not before a major character says goodbye to Everwood — permanently. TVGuide.com invited Mimoun to recap the possibilities for next week's "big death," discuss upcoming guest stars, and offer, for whatever it's worth at this late date, a final plea to save the show.
