Happy birthday mom. 

Paula Deen broke down on the Today Show  this morning.  Evidently, she wants people who have said something they regret to "pick up that stone and throw it at" her.  Huh?

Big Brother returns tonight.  Hallelujah.

I happen to be a big fan of Impractical Jokers  on TruTv.  Yahoo has an exclusive sneak preview of this upcoming season. 

Barbara Walters, until today, thought "LOL" meant Lots Of Love. For real? 

Per Deadline, "A month after the release of Jim Gaffigan‘s first book, Dad Is Fat, its publisher, Crown Archetype, has signed the comedian for a second book. I hear Gaffigan’s deal with the imprint of the Crown Publishing Group at Random House is in the seven-figure range. The untitled followup will be a collection of essays about one of Gaffigan’s favorite topics: food. It will be published in 2014. Dad Is Fat debuted at #5 on the New York Times bestseller’s list and has nearly 115,000 hardcover copies in print."

Buzzfeed recommends 25 shows you should watch from the beginning (considering you have never seen an episode).  Here's a snippet regarding Scandal  (which I will be up to date with tomorrow): " Why it’s important to start from the beginning: OMG this show! Listen to me very carefully when I say this: If you’re not watching Scandal, then I don’t know what you’re doing with your life. Start from the beginning, so you can catch every steamy and scandalous moment of Olivia and Fitz’s romance. It’s important, because their lust influences a significant amount of Olivia’s decision making, and Fitz’s actions as president as well."

We are still six weeks or so away from the premiere of Breaking Bad , but here's the new promo poster to get you excited

RIVR Media, a go-to production company for the Scripps family of networks, is set launch two new series. The Willis Clan, premiering on GAC on Thursday, June 27 at 8p, follows parents Toby and Brenda Willis as they raise their 12 children on their remote farm in the hills of Tennessee. Catastrophe Inc., set to premiere on HGTV on Sunday, July 14 at 10a, follows crews helping homeowners get back up on their feet after something's gone terribly wrong with their house. 

From "t’s been about three years since viewers said goodbye to MTV’s groundbreaking reality hit The Hills. In the series finale, Kristin Cavallari (who had replaced previous star Lauren Conrad at that point), seemed to drive away from her on-again, off-again boyfriend Brody Jenner and into a new, camera-less future. But then it was revealed that Brody and Kristen were actually shooting all of this on a backlot, a play by the producers on rumors that The Hills wasn’t real. But fans may get an even more satisfying resolution this summer: EW can exclusively reveal that MTV will air a different, alternate ending to The Hills on Friday, August 9, at 11:30 a.m. ET."

Here's an interview with Amy Schumer.  You should really check out her show on Comedy Central if you haven't done so already.
