Andy Roddick show is dead; Mandy Moore says; she’d leave him over it.

Andy Roddick show is dead; Mandy Moore says she’d leave him over it.
The Tour was to “follow [Andy] Roddick’s bouncing tennis ball as the 21-year-old, top-ranked ace travels the globe next May to September,” E! reported last year, but Andy’s girlfriend Mandy Moore says his balls are bouncing nowhere. “It was supposed to be like a documentary or something at first, and then someone kind of took that and ran with it and it kind of snowballed I guess out of context,” she tells the AP, which reports the show “will never happen.” (Tough week for Andy; he also just lost his #1 ranking.) Lest you think Mandy’s has a big hate-on for reality TV, she says, “I love watching reality shows, but I would never want to be in or on a reality show.” She’s so adamant about that, she’d dump Andy or anyone else on their ass if cameras showed up to follow him around; as the AP puts it, “She said if someone close to her were in such a show, she wouldn’t stick around long enough to be in it.”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
