all american muslim lowes russel simmonsHip-hop mogul and former reality star Russell Simmons slammed Lowe's hardware store after it pulled its ads from TLC's new series 'All American Muslim,' exclusively reports Entertainment Weekly.

"This can't happen in America ... [Lowe's] needs to fix this immediately," Simmons said. "They can't get away with that, it's ridiculous. There are American principals at stake here. I can't imagine the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, the National Urban League, or any organization that fights for their own rights will allow this to happen to any other group because they know they're next."

Simmons isn't the only one upset by the homebuilding store's decision. According to the Los Angeles Times, California state senator Ted Lieu called on Lowe's to apologize for pulling its advertising from the TV show, which follows the lives of five Muslim American families from the Dearborn, Michigan area, home to one of the most active Muslim communities in the country.

sabrina the teenage witch funny or die melissa joan hartFile this under: the greatest thing you'll see all day. Eight years after Melissa Joan Hart said goodbye to Sabrina Spellman and her witchy ways, the former 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' star spoofed her popular spellbinding role in a new video for Funny Or Die -- starring her former co-star, Salem the cat.

In the hilarious clip, the actress reunites with Salem (voiced by Nick Bakay) for lunch to catch up. But, then Salem -- always the bad influence -- convinces Hart to embrace her dormant inner-Sabrina and perform a little magic ... and that when Melissa loses it. She morphs into a power-hungry witch, attacking the restaurant's guests with "magic!"

And when a little boy tries to combat Melissa's witchy ways with the 'Harry Potter' defense spell, "Expelliarmus," the actress disarms him with her own clever counter-attack.

Harry Morgan DiesHarry Morgan, best known for playing Colonel Sherman T. Potter on the long-standing army dramedy 'M*A*S*H,' died at his home in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning, according to TheWrap. He was 96.

Morgan played Col. Potter for eight years, until 'M*A*S*H's' final episode on Feb. 28, 1983. The series finale was the most watched television episode in US television history at the time, with a record-breaking 125 million viewers.
A decorated TV actor, Morgan also appeared in other iconic roles, like Detective Bill Gannon on 'Dragnet.'

"Harry had a thousand stories. That of course comes from appearing in over 100 movies, and probably 10,000 television programs," M*A*S*H executive producer Ken Levine wrote, paying tribute to Morgan on his blog on Wednesday. "Harry was very much like Colonel Potter. He raised horses, and in fact, in the final episode when he says goodbye to Sophie, that really was one of Harry's horses. The picture on Potter's desk was of Harry's real wife, Eileen. And the only difference in personalities between Harry and Sherman is that Harry held his liquor better."

Watch 'The Voice' Contestant Dia Frampton's 'Don't Kick the Chair' Feat. Kid Cudi (VIDEO)

by AOL Music Staff, posted Nov 30th 2011 4:00PM
She isn't just a pretty 'voice,' but also one talented songwriter! Dia Frampton, who rose to fame as the runner-up on the inaugural season of NBC's 'The Voice,' has a catchy new, Kid Cudi-assisted single out called 'Don't Kick the Chair.' The Utah native puts the tune's poignant lyrics in the spotlight for its brand-new video.

"I wrote this song with Busbee and Julie Frost," Dia, who was on country megastar Blake Shelton's 'Voice' team, told AOL Music. "It started with my lyrical idea, 'Don't Kick the Chair,' since my sisters and I throw that phrase around at home when we're complaining about something when, on the other hand, it's a beautiful day outside. In other words, 'don't kick the chair' is another way of saying, 'don't give up,' because you can't have the highs without the lows, and there's no use in getting down about something for too long. You got to start pushing forward at some point."

by Crystal Bell, posted Nov 29th 2011 1:15PM
kris humphriesKris Humphries is now the center of attention after the Season 2 premiere of 'Kourtney and Kim Take New York.' If fans needed any sort of justification for Kim Kardashian and Kris' 72-day whirlwind marriage and ill-fated divorce, then the explosive season opener provided it.

Between joking that Kim had gained weight from eating too much wedding cake, passing gas in her face, and exploding when he came home to find a naked male yoga instructor leading a class in his hotel suite, Humphries didn't exactly come out looking like Kim's fairytale prince charming.

Humphries didn't like what he saw in the episode, and was "extremely disappointed with how he was portrayed," reports RadarOnline.

Now, Humphries' ex-girlfriend, who bears a striking resemblance to his soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian, is speaking up about what life was like with Humphries pre-fairytale wedding.
