Mark Halperin, a senior political analyst for MSNBC, called President Obama "a d---" on Morning Joe and was indefinitely suspended.
"I want to offer a heartfelt and profound apology to the president, to my MSNBC colleagues, and to the viewers. My remark was unacceptable, and I deeply regret it," Halperin said in a statement.
LuAnn de Lesseps, Jill Zarin

"Listen up, this is the countess speaking. We have arrived," LuAnn says in the first line of the song. From there, she gets in her limo and is off to Atlantic City's Borgata hotel where she's joined by fellow cast members Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon.
America's Got Talent

Even more fascinating was Beverly Hills-dwelling Jean...
In its weekly intro, A&E's Intervention explains that the show ropes in its subjects by presenting itself as a "documentary about addiction." You understand how this could work for a while, but for a show that's been around for as long as it has (its 10th season!), you'd expect someone to catch on.

If you want to know what she means, look no further than the video below that TLC put together in advance of Sunday's two-part season finale (airing at 10/9c).
