No Room For Friendly Fire
Huffington Post - over 1 year
I was diagnosed with HIV in late 1991. Shortly after, I joined a support group in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Damien Center. The people I met there had lost everything for disclosing their status-family, friends, jobs, housing. I felt grateful, and guilty at times, listening to others' sad stories of loss and what they were afraid of losing--because I knew that I was supported in all areas of my life. I knew then that I had an obligation to share my HIV status on as many public stages as I could. My mission was (and still is) to tell my experience in an authentic and direct way. Every time I told my story it was met with love and gratitude for my openness to share my life. Over a 14-year period, I spoke at over 2000 universities, fraternity and sorority leadership conferences, and youth groups throughout North America. More than a million young people heard my story, all in an effort to break down the stigma of HIV and help others prevent themselves from "joining the club." During ...

TV Land Axes 'Happily Divorced'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Fran Drescher's "Happily Divorced" has been cancelled, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The TV Land comedy will not return for Season 3, joining the recently axed "Retired at 35." Its Season 2 finale, which aired in February, will serve as the series finale. "Happily Divorced" was based on Drescher's own life, centering around a florist named Fran (Drescher) who starts dating again after discovering that her husband (John Michael Higgins) is gay and divorcing him -- although the pair decide to keep living under the same roof. D.W. Moffett played Fran's on-and-off love interest, Elliot. TV Land's current line-up includes "Hot In Cleveland," "The Exes" and "The Soul Man," with Kirstie Alley's sitcom "Kirstie" and Jaime Pressly's "Jennifer Falls" in production. The network also recently fast-tracked "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star's "Younger." Will you miss "Happily Divorced"?

'Raising Hope' Tribute Episode To 'My Name Is Earl'
Huffington Post - about 4 years
For four seasons Greg Garcia made fans laugh with "My Name Is Earl." While that NBC show ended in 2009, and Garcia has since moved on to "Raising Hope," he never lost his love for his former show. He's had plenty of the "Earl" cast on "Hope" for various guest appearances. But in the first of this week's back-to-back episode, it was a full-on "My Name Is Earl" tribute episode. Sure, the actors are all playing different roles, but there were still several familiar elements. Jason Lee plays rock star Smokey Floyd in the "Hope" universe. In this episode it was revealed that he'd made a list of all the people he'd wronged, and had set out to make things right. Sound familiar? The Chances were on his list, thus bringing him into their lives in time for Hope's birthday party. A series of misadventures led to Smokey Floyd joining up with the rest of the entertainment -- and the pizza guy -- to form a children's band. Playing alongside him were guest stars Ethan Suplee, Jaime Pre ...

S**t, we're canceled! Controversial TV show titles get publicity, but so far, not ratings
Fox News - almost 5 years
From “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” and “Good Christian Bitches” (now “GCB”) to “Don’t Trust the B- in Apartment 23” to “$h*! My Dad Says,” controversial titles are all the rage these days. “The risqué titling is used not only for publicity, and appealing to a younger demographic, but also to put a new, shinier spin on the same TV tropes we’ve seen time and time again,” Chako Suzuki, managing editor of TV watching website WetPaint.com, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. “It helps these new shows stand apart and leave a lasting impression during pilot season.” The titles are also prompting a different kind of rage among some television watchdog groups. Melissa Henson, Director of Communications and Public Education at the Parents Television Council (PTC) said it was a shame that networks have resorted to “crass titles” and have such a poor opinion of their audience. “Although controversial content of titles might result in some short-term attention or even a temporary ratings spike, ...
