A morning mix of entertainment headlines...
Nancy Grace had a slight wardrobe malfunction on “Dancing With the Stars,” when her breast was partly exposed during her performance with partner Tristan MacManus. Because the show is broadcast on a delay on the East Coast, cameras cut away until host Tom Bergeron helped her adjust the top of her gown. Meanwhile, Grace insists to reporters that there was no nip slip. The TV Column has a full recap of the episode. (AOL TV; Entertainment Weekly)
Chuck Lorre , executive producer of “Two and a Half Men,” slapped one of his famous Charlie Sheen-related vanity cards on the end of last night’s episode of “Two and a Half Men.” It said, in part: “Sometime last year I realized I had become the unwilling contestant in a reality show. I didn’t understand the rules, wasn’t sure if there even were any and pretty much hated every second of it. ... Anyway, now, suddenly I’m being told that the reality show’s been cancelled. Apparently, it was just one of those things that somehow got out of control.” He added at the end: “That thing inside me that died? It walks at night. It’s angry. It’s hungry. And worst of all ... it’s writing a tell-all book.” (TMZ)
So clearly Lorre is concerned about rumors that Sheen is shopping around for a book deal, a move that Celebritology encouraged in this recent mini-essay. (Although, for the record, we think he should give things a bit more time.) Either that, or Lorre is frustrated that Sheen’s lawsuit with him and Warner Bros. was finally settled yesterday for an amount that reportedly falls somewhere between $25 and $100 million.
