Kristin Cavallari, Capt. Phil Harris
What is reality? This is a question best posed by philosophers and the stoner kids at your high school. But also by producers of reality shows, who love to toy with our expectations. This week, we look at a few scripted shows that filled us with real emotions. And, more amazingly, reality shows that did the same. (Not that all these emotions were good: Looking at you, Real Housewives of New Jersey.) Welcome to Top Moments, Reeling in Reality Edition.
13. Worst Decision: On Entourage, an obviously concussed Vince unilaterally decides to cut off his signature curly locks. (You can imagine Keri Russell sitting at home and saying with a sigh: "They never learn.") We hope he's not...
Jake Pavelka and Tenley Molzahn
Did Tenley dodge a bullet by not ending up with Jake?
On last season of The Bachelor, college admissions rep Tenley Molzahn was sent home broken-hearted by Jake Pavelka. Since then, his relationship with first pick Vienna Girardi has devolved into a tabloid train-wreck culminating with a televised break-up interview on July 5 that highlighted Jake's less-than-warm-and-fuzzy side. (Sample tidbit: He admitted to throwing a GPS out of a car window when Vienna "undermined" him about directions.)
So is the fan-favorite Tenley...
Aaron Douglas, The Bridge
There's a new cop show on the TV lineup. The Canadian drama The Bridge (Saturday, 8/7c, CBS) premiered July 10 and introduced viewers to Frank Leo, a dedicated beat officer who is fed up with the corrupt police brass. He takes action by getting elected union leader, making him some powerful new enemies who have already proven they'll go to great lengths to bring him down.
But it's nothing Frank can't handle, according to the guy who plays him: Aaron Douglas, who likens the character to Tony Soprano...

The Social Network - Justin Timberlake and Jesse Eisenberg
The Social Network's first full trailer is out and seems to ask the musical question: Is Facebook co-creator Mark Zuckerberg a creep? It's set to a spooky cover of Radiohead's "Creep."
The film — directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin — stars Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg, Justin Timberlake as Napster co-founder Sean Parker and Andrew Garfield (the new Spider-Man) as Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin.
And it looks like the "unauthorized" biopic we've been promised.
