SURVIVOR MYSTERY SOLVED!

What was up with Jerri Manthey's abrupt walk-out during Sunday's Survivor: All-Stars reunion? On Monday's Early Show, the former Surreal Lifer said she got "pretty upset" when the crowd started booing her. "I didn't get to finish making my point," she explained.

HE CAN'T STAY AWAY!

Los Angeles prosecutors have accused actor Tom Sizemore of violating a court order to stay away from ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss and just say no to illegal drugs.

Joseph Lawrence made TV Guide Online's day when he recently confirmed that his dreadful WB sitcom, Run of the House, would not be returning this fall for a second season.

And move on he has: Lawrence will find out next week whether his ABC romantic comedy pilot, I Married Sophia, nabbed a spot on the fall schedule. read more
