Tom Sizemore Fights on 'Sober House'Temper, temper! A Tom Sizemore rage is nothing new. But with Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr? What did he do? On last night's 'Sober House' (Thu., 10PM ET on VH1), the volatile actor went ballistic at the dinner table, seemingly over a comment about 'House' mate Heidi Fleiss.

"I'm gonna beat your [bleep] ass, man. Heidi Fleiss, you think you know her?" says Tom to Mike. As he gets louder, the "bleeps" come fast and furious. "Think you're the only dope fiend on earth? I'm tired of you. I'm fighting for my [bleep] life."

"I love you, Tom," Mike says at one point. It doesn't help. Meanwhile, everyone sitting at the dinner table quietly observes the proceedings. Dennis Rodman doesn't even put down his cigar. Classic.

Sober House With Dr. Drew, Mike StarrIf you take a job as a cameraman on 'Sober House' (Thu., 10PM ET on VH1), you're treading on dangerous territory. That detox is nasty business, and you're a perfect target for rage and rudeness.

Mike Starr took his frustration out on one last night, but that's not the first time it's happened. Kari Ann Peniche did the same thing. Both were kicked out of the house.

We're only two episodes in, people. Let's hope the camera operators have good insurance.

Yes! Ed is (probably) coming to DVD!

Ed castWe've speculated about this many times here at TV Squad, but now we have word from Ed himself, Tom Cavanagh, that season one of the show is coming to DVD.

In an interview with Collider.com, Cavanagh says:

"Yeah, I guess they're talking about it. Last I heard was they were close on season one. The stumbling block as it's like a lot of the time is the music rights. They were fortunate enough because of the clout they had as Letterman's producers to get a lot of great music as one-offs. Of course, when you put those on a DVD that becomes a whole different thing."
