Andy Cohen assaulted, sort of, by a Housewife during reunion

Next week’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion features physical violence involving Teresa Guiduce, who throws both pillows and host Andy Cohen. During a brief moment in the preview below, you can see her shove him backwards into his chair. Who knew reading awful questions from viewers could be such a dangerous job?

The rest of the reunion looks like it will involve the other women screaming at Danielle Staub, and/or chasing after her, causing Andy Cohen to have to restrain at least one of them.

It airs Aug. 30 and Sept. 6, and may just make up for this relatively boring season. Even in Bravo’s crappy video viewer, the preview looks intense:

The Quest ends its journey stronger than it began

Verlox from The Quest

A review of the finale of summer's best reality series, which wasn't always perfect but was thoroughly entertaining right down to the finish, which included phenomenal challenges and special effects. Will ABC give it a second season?

Plus: an interview with the actor who played Verlox and the ogre.


Shark Tank is getting a spin-off
