CBS' Big Brother 7: All-Stars is about to begin, and the 20 potential housemates are out campaigning like crazy — perhaps none more so than "Hurricane" Howie Gordon. The self-proclaimed Jedi and former weatherman who breezed through the first half of Big Brother 6 desperately wants a chance to blow away audiences with his humor once again. Today is the last day that fans can vote at CBS.com for their favorites. (The viewers' top six will be combined with the producers' favorite six, and the chosen dozen will enter the house on July 6.) Before casting your ba
Donald Trump gave Michael Laungani not so much a Bronx cheer but a Rutgers one, when the 29-year-old Chicagoan nearly cost the ill-fated Gold Rush guys their most valuable asset: a bevy of collegiate pom-pom girls. Was Michael simply too nice a guy to play with the reality-TV sharks? (And why does he want to tangle with real sharks?) Here's what he told TVGuide.com the day after his firing.
TVGuide.com: Dude, where did you come from?

I mixed three or four accents together so she sounds like the biggest trailer-park queen in the country. Her hair is a character unto itself. Her ridiculous clothes are a nice little icing on the cake.
TV Guide: Joy and Earl are often at odds. What are you guys really like on the set? Pressly:
It was jingle all the way... off of NBC's The Apprentice (airing double episodes tonight, starting at 9 pm/ET) for Bryce Gahagan last week, when the 28-year-old custom-home builder got deconstructed by the Donald for, among other things, blaming the wrong teammates for Gold Rush's flunking the Arby's Chicken Naturals task. Does Bryce feel he made a bad call? And does he, like anyone, really believe Trump goes wild for fast-food roast beef? Here's what he had to tell TVGuide.com:
TVGuide.com: The dominant theme for this season — more so than in other seasons — is, "Dude! You're bringing the wrong people into the boardroom."Bryce Gahagan: No, it's called integrity, and not playing into TV. I brought the right people [
Now here's a gamble if ever I heard one: The suits at Warner Bros. are proceeding with plans to make another Ocean's Eleven sequel — Ocean's Thirteen, natch — but without Oscar-winning eye candy Catherine Zeta-Jones or Julia Roberts in the cast.
