It used to be that celebrity beefs were settled privately by their handlers and fan gripes were reserved for chat rooms. Now, with much of Hollywood hitting the social-network scene, these formerly undisclosed matters are on display for the world to weigh in on. The revolution is being Twitterized.
Whether it's Joan Rivers ripping on Lindsay Lohan, Suze Orman calling out the Kardashian sisters for hidden fees in their debit card (they've since dropped the project) or Kanye West blasting Matt Lauer, Twitter has become a public thunderdome where celebs can show their true colors in 140-character splashes free from publicist spin.
Last season, Katey Sagal's motorcycle matriarch, Gemma Teller Morrow, was desperately trying to keep her horrific assault under wraps. But this time around on Sons of Anarchy, she's determined to uncover truths — namely the whereabouts of her kidnapped grandson, Abel — while trying to beat a bogus murder rap...

How is Nolivia different than Olivia on Fringe? — Ken
MICKEY: The season premiere, titled simply "Olivia," addresses that question in an unexpected way. You see, not only has Olivia been kidnapped and imprisoned "over there," but her captors are trying to forcibly convince her that she is Nolivia. They start with her marksmanskip skills.
Will Callen get some answers about who's been following him in the NCIS: Los Angeles premiere? — Maggie
ADAM: Yeah, I'd like that answer as well, but executive producer Shane Brennan says that solving that riddle would give away...

There's no crying in outlaw biker gangs, right?
As Sons of Anarchy roars back for its third season, the leather-clad, gun-running testosterone that has fueled the series takes a bit of a backseat to resolving last season's cliff-hanger: the abduction of Jax's infant son, Abel.
Returning fall shows: Where we left off
"I just wanted to begin the season showing the emotional devastation of that," creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter tells TVGuide.com. "Even though these guys navigate in a fairly dangerous world, ultimately what happened to Jax is not in the outlaw handbook."
Sons of Anarchy creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter isn't the only outspoken person on set, as was evident when the cast and crew fielded questions about their lack of Emmy recognition. Net nominations this year? Zero.
"I personally was really happy. I don't subscribe to Emmys or awards or...
Katey Sagal and Kurt Sutter
Sons of Anarchy fans know series creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter is not one to hold back.

Fans aren't the only ones taking a side in the late-night wars. Celebrities from Rosie O'Donnell to Jerry Seinfeld are sharing their two cents on the matter as well. Check out the top 13 quotes in the Conan O'Brien vs. Jay Leno dispute.
No matter how NBC's late-night disputes are resolved, Conan O'Brien can rest assured that he has another job waiting for him — on FX's Sons of Anarchy.
NBC exec calls Conan "chicken-hearted" and an "astounding failure"
"I know appearing in a dramatic role on cable television is probably the last thing you'd ever want to do, but I want you to know that you have an open invitation on my show, Sons of Anarchy," executive producer Kurt Sutter wrote in an entry on his blog titled "My Open Invitation to Conan O'Brien." "We have an IRA story line that will continue to play out this coming season and I could use a bad-ass O'Brien ...
Katey Sagal, Sons of Anarchy
Rape. Murder. Getting religion. Katey Sagal's Sons of Anarchy character, Gemma Teller, went through a lot during the show's critically acclaimed and high-rated second season.

"She's completely undone in a way that she's never been before, in a way that made her feel vulnerable," Sagal tells TVGuide.com of her character's Season 2 journey. "She just questions everything about herself. [The rape] threatened her sexuality, it threatened her marriage, it threatened everything about her."
Whether she was enduring the brutal attack, finally confessing it to her warring son and husband or just living in the (few) quieter moments of SAMCRO's world, Sagal's portrayal was consistently brilliant. Clearly, she is Peg Bundy no more...

The series, about a California outlaw motorcycle gang, is scheduled to return in...
