LuAnn de Lesseps, Kelly Killoren Bensimon and Alex McCord
Whether she's calling Sonja Morgan a "thug in a cocktail dress" or dressing down Jill Zarin for being a phony, the usually reserved Alex McCord has been killing us with her newfound chutzpah on The Real Housewives of New York City. And she's no less cheeky when it comes to fielding our questions about life as a Housewife.
TV Guide Magazine: Gotta say, you are sassy this season!
McCord: [Laughs] I've always...
And then there was one?
CBS no longer has an offer out to Katie Couric for a syndicated talk show, according to people familiar with the discussions. That would put ABC in line for the services of the departing CBS Evening News anchor.
CBS was interested in keeping Couric in the family with a daytime syndicated program, but the negotiations have bogged down over the issue ...
Judge Bruno Tonioli sat outside his trailer after the Dancing With the Stars results show Tuesday night, kicking back, drinking white wine, and reflecting on how much fun the stars appear to be having this season. "They're nice people and they work very, very hard," he says. "This show is a great personal experience for anyone."
So much so that Tonioli wants to give a shout out to two of Hollywood's most notorious celebs...
Season 1 of Justified ended with blazing gunfire and a staggeringly large body count. So the big question is: Can this season's finale — promisingly titled "Bloody Harlan" — provide the same nail-biting action, shoot 'em ups and who's-hurt aftermath? "It matches it in terms of drama and shock," says Joelle Carter, who plays plucky widow Ava on the gripping neo-Western. "While I was reading the script, I was screaming."
According to Carter...
Dear Glee writers,
We would like to thank you for finally getting around to using more of your nearly forgotten core cast. It's been a while since some of them uttered more than a line, what with all of the guest stars and Kurt's beatification, but in last night's Fleetwood Mac-themed outing, we got to see what a couple of the extras, er, members of the ensemble, could do with actual storyline....

We still love Emmy winner (and Tony nominee!) Edie Falco, but frankly we're starting to get a little sick of her Showtime dramedy. Maybe it's because the show never goes away long enough for us to miss it — we became accustomed to the long waits between seasons of The Sopranos, but every time we turn around, Jackie checks back in for another round...
Lifetime has ordered the pilot Modern Love, based on a series of columns published in The New York Times. The project centers on newspaper science editor Simon McElvane, who must balance his collapsing marriage while raising an adopted 15-year-old daughter. He's then given the job of editor of the newspaper's "Modern Love" column, giving him the opportunity to learn more about life and love.
The show will weave in stories...
Cheers to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for striking comedy gold at the expense of Donald Trump.
Two nights after the SNL alum's fellow "Weekend Update" anchor Seth Meyers — not to mention President Obama himself — decimated the Celebrity Apprentice star at the White House Correspondents Dinner — Fallon nailed Trump with a dead-on impression...
Awww, man. Does this mean more of her?
Last night, How I Met Your Mother once again spent way too much time trying to make Zoey happen, and honestly kids, it was so not fetch.
No shade on Jennifer Morrison, a fine actress with apparently limited comedic chops, but the character is just a lump of meh...
You might wonder where the inspiration comes from for some of the more outrageous get-ups on Dancing With the Stars. As for the flouncy purple-and-orange tango dress Kendra Wilkinson wore Monday night, the inspiration came from Barbie.
That's right, the famous doll. Wilkinson's pro partner, Louis Van Amstel, saw a tiny picture in a magazine and let his imagination take flight. "It was literally a small picture of Barbie in a black dress," says Van Amstel. "And tango is normally black, but this was black and boring"...
