Thursday, November 12, 2009
MUST SEE VIDEO
She's on 14:59 of her 15 minutes of fame. Still, Carrie Prejean appeared on Larry King Live to promote her new book last night. (Is anyone going to buy that?) The former beauty queen got upset with Larry when he asked her why she recently settled with the Miss California USA pageant. She repeatedly called Larry "inappropriate" then pulled her mic off and started talking to her PR people off-camera. There was a bunch of dead air. Then, Larry took a break. Time for the media to stop giving this brat airtime. Here's Anderson Cooper breaking it all down:

CHIMP ATTACK VICTIM APPEARS ON 'OPRAH'
Wednesday, November 11, 2009
In case you forgot it was sweeps, Oprah was there to remind you today. She scored two huge exclusives.
First up, she spoke with the two heroes of the Fort Hood shooting. Kimberly Munley fired the shoots that took down gunman Nidal Malik Hasan on thst fateful day. Oprah interviewed her via satellite. Munley says she's getting better each day.
In a worldwide exclusive, Oprah also sat down with Charla Nash. She's the Connecticut woman whose face was ripped off by a chimp earlier this year. Nash said that she does not remember anything about the day she was attacked. She's been hospitalized ever since. Nash says she's not in pain. She wears a veil, so she doesn't scare people. But for the first time, she took it off for Oprah. It was very graphic. Very courageous of her.

Dr. Phil has been renewed for the 2013-14 season in about 70 percent of the country. NBC Universal's trash talkers, Maury, Jerry Springer, and Steve Wilkos have all been picked up by the Tribune station group through the 2011-12 season.
