Anyone else think that Betsy, the devil-worshipper from Breaking Amish: LA, looks like she could be a blood relative of Michael Jackson?

DIY Network renewed Man Caves for a thirteenth season.  Season 12 still has episodes to air featuring Charlie Sheen, Nomar Garciaparra and a host of others.  Do me and yourself a favor and start watching this show (and Desperate Landscapes  also featuring Man Caves  co-host Jason Cameron).  reports that "[e]arlier this summer, Jeff Probst officially broke the news on Entertainment Weekly Radio that the 27th season of Survivor — titled Blood Vs. Water — would feature returning Survivor players and their loved ones. And now we can officially reveal that one of those pairs will be Survivor: One World’s Kat Edorsson and her boyfriend, Big Brother season 12 champ Hayden Moss."  

According to TMZ , "Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand had a fight with her boyfriend hours before she killed herself, and he told her 'I don't love you anymore.'  Gia had accused NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson of being unfaithful during lunch the day she died.  During the ride back to her house -- where they stopped at a Walgreens to get her NyQuil --  Gia told Ryan she still loved him but then he dropped the bombshell about his feelings."

Men at Work  has been renewed for a third season, TBS announced Tuesday. Men At Work will launch its 10-episode third season in early 2014. The comedy, which stars Danny Masterson and Michael Cassidy, averaged 1.9 million viewers this year.  I was and will continue to be one of them.

Not all renewals are cause for celebration.  Unfathomably, NBC has renewed Hollywood Game Night  for a second season, the network announced yesterday.  This show is an abomination.  Don't waste a nanosecond on it.

Apprentice winner and Giuliana & Bill star Bill Rancic is tackling another reality show calledTraining Day.  According to the show description, Rancic train for dangerous jobs, like SWAT teams, to see if he has what it takes to perform at an expert's level. Rancic's partnered with Ridley Scott's Scott Free Non Fiction for the project.   I have much love for Scott Free, but I think Rancic was a big misstep here.  I could list a few dozen people who probably would have made for a better host.

James Franco is getting his own show on Ovation called James Franco Presents.  According to Variety , "Franco will pull back the curtain on the many side projects he is perpetually involved with, from his latest art exhibit to his work in collegiate classrooms. The series will give viewers a glimpse at highlights of the hundreds of hours of video he’s shot over the years that’s never been seen before, including some of his experimental short films. In addition to plumbing his past work, Franco will also let cameras tag along in other facets of his professional life as well.

Presents will also venture beyond Franco’s own work to highlight everything from interesting trends in the art world to other up-and-coming artists."

Interesting episode of MTV's Catfish  last night.  SPOILER: The couple was as advertised.  After three years of going back and forth on-line and having never met they were introduced and seemed to hit it off.  After another couple of months, she moved to Alabama to live with him in his trailer and after two days they realized they weren't right for one another, called it quits and haven't spoken since.  

Elmore Leonard, whose gritty fiction provided the basis of films including "Jackie Brown," and "Get Shorty," and the FX television show "Justified," has died at 87, his agent told TheWrap.  RIP.
