Yes, it's been that long since Keenen Ivory Wayans actually acted on television - he guest-starred in just one episode of My Wife And Kids (which starred his younger brother Damon Wayans), in 2001.

I had no idea Maria Menounos was running a burgeoning entertainment empire; I just know her as the co-host of Extra, the entertainment news program; and that's just barely, since I don't watch the show.

An excerpt from a day-old article I came across on Peoria, IL's PJStar news website, on the upcoming Richard Pryor feature documentary, that I'm only just now learning, thanks to the article, is being directed by Marina Zenovich (known mostly for directing the multiple award-winning 2008 documentary Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired).

Your reactions to episode one were very enthusiastic, so I figured I'd post episodes 2 and 3 as well. Both are embedded below. And if you'd like to keep up with the series, I suggest you subscribe to South Uk Whittlesey's YouTube channel HERE, because that's where I've been getting them.

It was in August when showrunner Shonda Rhimes stated in an interview with TVGuide.com, talking about her medical drama Private Practice, that she would love to feature a musical episode in what is the final season of the ABC medical drama, as she did with Grey's Anatomy last year; and she further admitted that she'd love to "lure back Broadway star Audra McDonald (Naomi) one more time before the series ends."

I preface with the "I'm sorry" line, but based on the descriptions of each, maybe these actually might not be as trashy as some other reality TV series; then again, I wouldn't really know (although I've heard), because I tend to keep my distance from reality TV in general.

I have to honest and say that I haven't really been keeping up with the series; I have a lot of catching up to do. Most of my viewing comes after an episode airs, when audiences, and/or the network, uploaded the funniest skits to YouTube, where I eventually watch them.

Recalling my spring post, wondering what was next for Audra McDonald, after making history earlier this year at the Tony Awards, becoming the first black woman to claim 5 Tony Award wins (she picked up the Best Leading Actress In A Musical for Porgy & Bess).
