After a Tornado, Steve Builds the Morrises a New Home on 'Disaster Guy' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 10th 2011 1:30AM
'Disaster Guy'Steve Frasher was happy to help an older couple rebuild after a tornado destroyed their home on 'Disaster Guy' (Sat., 9PM ET on A&E). Like 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,' Frasher specializes in building homes for those in need in seven days flat.

The difference is that while Ty Pennington and his team focus on families in need for various reasons, Frasher spotlights those families in desperate need of a new home quite simply because some disaster destroyed their old one.

In the case of Jerry and Betty Morris, their home was reduced to a pile of rubble in a tornado. But Frasher not only gave them a new house, he salvaged artifacts and memories from their lives so that they won't feel that they lost everything. He helped make that new house into a home.

Steven Seagal Denies That a Puppy Was Killed During Reality Show Raid

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 5th 2011 10:00AM
Steven SeagalAccording to the Associated Press, actor Steven Seagal and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio have denied accusations by a Phoenix man and his lawyer that a family pet was killed during a raid filmed for Seagal's reality TV show.

TMZ earlier reported that Seagal took part in a March 9 raid on the home of Jesus Llovera for his A&E show, 'Steven Seagal: Lawman.'

Llovera alleges that Seagal arrived at his home with a tank, which he rammed into a gate on his property, and that an 11-month-old puppy was killed during the raid along with 100 roosters.

Seagal said he's outraged by the allegation, and Sheriff Arpaio said it is without merit. "If my deputies, or posse man Seagal for that matter, had done something so awful like shooting a family dog, then where are the photos to prove it?" Arpaio asked.

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed Set Their Wedding Date

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed'Family Jewels' fans left hanging by the "will she or won't she?" Season 6 finale need wonder no longer.

We watched Gene Simmons propose (finally!) to longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed back in July and now, instead of settling in for the long engagement some may have expected, the reality TV stars have announced that they're tying the knot next month.

The pair have released a wedding invitation, which reveals that the ceremony will take place on October 1 at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, and that there's a dress code.

"Classy Cocktail Attire Requested ... although we know some Rockstar attire will be worn." (Hey, could that mean that Gene will get hitched in full KISS makeup and boots? We hope so!)

Things Are Still Far From Good Between Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 20th 2011 3:35AM
'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'Things are still very tense between Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed. Even though she did stop in to see him on tour, along with their kids, the tension backstage when the two met was palpable on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E).

Simmons seems unsure of what to do to win her over, but we're not sure he's even fully grasped what he's done to be on the verge of losing her. He may understand on some intellectual level, but at a visceral gut level he doesn't seem to fully comprehend her position.

Tweed was there for him in person, but she was hardly there emotionally, and barely there at all. There were long moments of silence. When Gene asked her to stay and have lunch with him, she was quiet. She did not want to go back to his room with him, but did stay with their daughter.

Simmons' long-time partner Shannon Tweed confronted the KISS rocker after spying an online photograph of him cavorting with a pair of blonde babes while he was supposed to be at a "business meeting."

Tweed wasn't joking when she told TV Guide that Season 6 would "show lots of warts this year." After grilling Simmons about his night out, a tearful Tweed said that she was "sick" of living with Simmons and headed straight for the door.

Ray Confesses His Crime to the Criminals on 'Breakout Kings' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 9th 2011 6:34AM
'Breakout Kings' - 'Paid in Full'Ray does not generally treat his convict charges well. He belittles them, insults them and as Erica said this week, he looks down his nose at them. Well, the 'Breakout Kings' (Sun., 10PM ET on A&E) learned that Ray isn't as above them as he might have wanted them to think.

Once the cat was out of the bag, Ray came clean about what he did to lose his badge. "I took eight grand from a bust to buy my kid a used car so she wouldn't think I was a deadbeat dad."

When the cons tried to rally around this, saying he's no better than them, Ray exploded. He said that what he did doesn't come close to equating to Sean being a gangbanger, or Erica choosing vengeance over her child, or Lloyd selling prescription drugs to college kids, one of whom OD'd and died.

Robert Knepper Brings 'Prison Break's T-Bag to 'Breakout Kings' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 21st 2011 5:45AM
Robert Knepper, 'Breakout Kings'From 2005-2009, 'Prison Break' entertained audiences on the FOX network. But while it was uneven throughout its run, one thing remained consistently fascinating. The breakout character of the series was Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell, played brilliantly by Robert Knepper. It would prove to be the defining role of his career, and thanks to 'Breakout Kings' (Sun., 9PM ET on A&E), he got a chance to return to the character.

The move puts the new series firmly in the same reality as 'Prison Break,' which means there is at least a remote chance of seeing some of that show's other characters.

'Kings' creators Nick Santora and Matt Olmstead were both writers and producers for 'Break' so they had a good handle on the character of Bagwell.

Everything You Need to Know About 'Breakout Kings'

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Mar 1st 2011 2:00PM


TV Squad is in one of the seediest strip clubs in Toronto, watching Lauren Velez from 'Dexter' chatting amicably with a tough-looking thug and a pretty young stripper.

We're on the set of the new A&E crime show 'Breakout Kings,' and Velez and company are gearing up to film an intense shoot-out scene. Created by Matt Olmstead ('Prison Break,' 'NYPD Blue') and Nick Santora ('Prison Break,' 'The Sopranos'), each episode follows an unconventional team of two U.S. Marshals and three inmates trying to catch an escaped fugitive.

The rationale behind the unusual arrangement is that "it takes a con to catch a con." In exchange for helping the Marshals hunt down escaped bad guys, the three inmates get a break from jail while they're on the case, and a month off of their total sentences for each criminal they net. This time around, Velez is playing the inmate on the run -– a far cry from her role as the career-driven Lt. Maria Laguerta on 'Dexter.'

'Breakout Kings' stars Domenick Lombardozzi ('The Wire,' 'Entourage') and Laz Alonso ('Southland') as the two U.S. Marshals, Brooke Nevin ('The Comebacks') as the Marshals' office staffer, and Jimmi Simpson ('It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'), Malcolm Goodwin ('American Gangster') and Serinda Swan ('TRON: Legacy') as the three inmates.

We spent a day on the 'Breakout Kings' set and caught up with Olmstead, Lombardozzi, Alonso and Simpson to get the scoop on everything you need to know about prime time's latest crime show.

Crime scene tapeSome of the greatest television dramas like 'The Wire,' 'CSI' and the never-ending stream of 'Law & Order' spinoffs ripped some of their best plots straight from the crime blotter.

But some of the best headlines don't need fictional characters or enhanced-for-TV plot twists, which is why true crime shows have become so popular on networks like truTV, A&E and Investigation Discovery, which debuts its newest program 'Stolen Voices, Buried Secrets' Jan. 10 at 10PM ET. This true crime show tells the story of a murder -- from the victim's point of view. Viewers must piece together the killer's identity based on clues given by family members, friends and investigators.
