Michael L. Brea
Michael Brea, the bit-part actor charged with murdering his own mother, said his actions were "the work of God."
Brea, who appeared on episodes of Ugly Betty and in the feature film Step-Up 3D, was arrested Tuesday after repeatedly stabbing his mother, 55-year-old Yannick Brea, with a sword. He is being held in the prison ward of Bellevue Hospital in New York, where his psychiatric health is being evaluated.

Nobody plays action moms better than Linda Hamilton, who's gone from sci-fi in The Terminator flicks to spy-fi on Chuck, where she now plays secret agent Mary Elizabeth Bartowski.

So how come she shows up unannounced in Monday's episode (Nov. 29, 8/7c, NBC) to have Thanksgiving leftovers with Chuck? Is Mom Bartowski truly bad or is she faking it? The series plans to keep fans guessing. TV Guide Magazine had a chat with the fabulous Hamilton and not even she knows the truth!
The last time Barbara Walters sat down with President Obama was in July, on The View. Tonight's get-together (the interview was taped Tuesday) is on Obama's turf, the White House. Walters also interviewed Obama in November 2008, just after he was elected, and they talked at some length about the precarious state of the economy then. It's a bit stronger now, but he's a bit weaker politically, and the Democrats' midterm "shellacking" is likely to be Topic A. And First Lady Michelle Obama's also taking part in the session, so expect insight into how the First Family is dealing with the state of things, personally. — Paul Droesch
