This season of The Celebrity Apprentice has no shortage of extreme celeb behavior... thank God! A big part the show's entertainment value comes from getting to watch fame's absurd effect on real-life situations. Celebrities flail with more vigor, fail with more melodrama and generally attack the portrait of life with the broadest strokes possible... or so reality TV tells us. It's a logical effect, given that we're watching natural entertainers — or aspiring ones, at least. A few examples of the way fame intensified situations on this week's art-fundraising episode are below...
At last, the moment we've been waiting for: the first, fully fledged, forehead vein-popping meltdown of this already tense season of The Celebrity Apprentice. In this sneak peek from Sunday's episode (9/8c, NBC), the usually easy-going Meat Loaf explodes at Gary Busey over... art supplies...
The Celebrity Apprentice
Country star John Rich, rapper Lil Jon and actor Gary Busey gather outside a Manhattan pizza joint with a giant inflatable guitar and a handful of fliers. Dressed as a cross between a deranged carnival worker and late-night televangelist, Busey — the natural barker of the bunch — assumes the identity of the "Pepperoni Profit" [sic], screaming at unsuspecting tourists to "stop the bus, turn off the key and get your butts in here!" The ones who oblige him score a slice — and a front-row seat to the spectacle of this season's first Celebrity Apprentice challenge, debuting tonight with a two-hour premiere.

Meat Loaf would do anything for SEO, but he won't do that. On a conference call with reporters to promote his upcoming guest appearance on House (Monday, 9 pm/ET, Fox), TVGuide.com listened in as the Loaf schooled one scribe on the value of search-engine optimization. What follows is a verbatim transcript of the exchange between the rocker-actor and Troy Rogers of Thedeadbolt.com, along with our (very loose) translations of Meat Loaf's website wisdom.
Meat Loaf with Hugh Laurie, House
If you come away from this Monday's episode of House without recognizing the actor who played the central patient, Meat Loaf will consider his guest-star turn a job well done.
"I started as an actor," not a musician, he points out. "People don't realize it, but I did the Rocky Horror movie before [the album] Bat Out of Hell." And when he tells people he was in Fight Club, some tend to doubt him. (He played Bob.)
Relishing his ability to vanish into a role, he says, "My ideal situation is for people to watch House ... and not even know it's me."

My fellow horror fiends, I apologize for the late posting. Between my citys first-ever-in-history blizzard last week and a trip to the ER (Im fine now, no worries), Ive been a bit behind. While recovering over the past weekend and attempting to stay warm, Dario Argentos fur-fringed Masters of Horror episode, Pelts, seemed a fitting theme.I havent held back from admitting that so far, Ive been underwhelmed and disappointed with Masters of Horror this season. Knowing that Italys horror maestro Dario Argento was up next, I still had some hope for the rest of the season, yet I also cringed because I wasnt too fond of his season 1 episode, Jenifer. One of the main reasons I didnt like Jenifer was that Argento departed from his trademark style to try a grittier perspective, and I just didnt feel that it worked. The Showtime website synopsis for Pelts did indicate that Argento would be returning to his legendary vividly colored, o...

The lines were longer than ever at this year's Comic-Con International, the annual celebration of all things geeky. Just ask the thousands of Battlestar Galactica fans who waited en masse outside of Ballroom 20 to see their favorite Cylons and colonials in the flesh. Meanwhile, the queue for New Line's special Snakes on a Plane presentation snaked (ha ha ha) out the door and down the side of the massive convention center. There are only two possible explanations for the sheer number of people who invaded San Diego for that weekend: 1) Nerds have learned how to clone themselves or 2) Geek culture is now mainstream culture. Either way, Comic-Con '06 was one for the ages. Here are some of the highlights and lowlights of the four-day extravaganza.
