Kudos to Julie Chen for a real post-eviction interview with Aaryn last night on Big Brother .  It could have been better had Julie informed her that she'd been dumped by her modeling agency after uttering a slew of racist remarks.  Aaryn was definitely put on the spot and didn't do herself much justice with answers like "[i]n Texas we say things…sometimes we joke and we don't mean it."  Andy Denhart has some pretty strong opinions on the matter if you're curious.

Check out this list of 13 former Saturday Night Live  writers who arguably would have made for great cast members.  Amongst them are Bob Odenkirk, Conan O'Brien, Stephen Colbert, Larry David and Dave Attell.

It was time to cancel Dancing With The Stars  about a year ago.  Rumors are now swirling about the cast for the next installment and names like Snooki, Valerie Harper, Elizabeth Berkley, Amber Riley and Leah Remini are exactly going to move the needle.  

Check out a deleted scene from season 2 of Scandal .

Vulture  takes a look at what to expect from season 2 of Orange Is The New Black .

We haven't seen much from Entourage 's Emmanuelle Chriqui lately.  Here's a look at her on Miami Beach very recently.

 Buzzfeed  offers up a list of 27 reasons it's great to be alive.

Eat, Drink, Love cast member Kat Odell says it's TV editing -- not unprofessional behavior -- that's led to the firestorm of controversy over her portrayal on the Bravo foodie series.  Yeah right.  "One L.A. Weekly writer called the show "bad for women" and spent several paragraphs discussing an apparent lack of journalism ethics on the part of Odell, who's also an editor at Eater LA.  Odell tells TheWrap that the show doesn't air the full story.

"On the series, Odell published factual errors in an interview with co-star Waylynn Lucas, co-owner of Fonuts.  Also, fellow cast member Brenda Urban (as well as footage of Odell on the series) suggests that Odell carried on romantic relationships with the chefs she wrote about."  

You're not missing much if you're watching this show.  It's a bunch of somewhat annoying women playing up their self-important roles as "foodies" who have the collective relevance of the expiration date on my almond milk.

Rupert Murdoch took a pay cut in 2013.  He'll only be taking home $28,900,000.  I'm sure that's going to put a real damper on his Labor Day plans. . . .
