"Masters of Sex" has wrapped up another season. I spoke with showrunner Michelle Ashford about various decisions that went into this year's stories, and I have a review of the finale coming up just as soon as I have all the gravitas of a toothpaste commercial... "God, what if you just let go of everything you thought your life would be? What if we both did? What then?" -Libby Season 1 of "Masters of Sex" built to a very public display of Bill and Virginia's work that got an ugly reception, followed by Bill being open about his feelings to Virginia. For a while, season 2 seemed like it was building to a parallel of that with the taping of the CBS News segment, but instead "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" is the opposite of last year's finale. Bill conspires to kill the CBS feature before it can air because he's paranoid of repeating history, »

Joey Robinson, Sylvia’s son, will executive produce, while music exec Robert Kraft is on board to co-produce. Grandmaster Melle Mel — of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, whose tune “The Message” was produced by Robinson and released by her label — will serve as consultant to Joey Robinson.
The film will chart Sylvia Robinson’s life and career, which stretches from her time as one half of the duo Mickey and Sylvia (best known for 1957 hit “Love Is Strange”) to her time as a producer-writer (The Moments’ “Love on a Two Way Street”), solo artist (“Pillow Talk”) and record label founder. Robinson and her husband, Joe, started R&B label All Platinum in the 1970s and then in 1979 launched Sugar Hill Records, »

Is NeNe Leakes getting the boot?The reality star walked the red carpet at the 2014 NBCUniversal Upfronts in New York City on Thursday, despite rumors that she's in jeopardy of being fired from "Real Housewives of Atlanta."According to Life & Style, "[Andy Cohen] was pissed about the way that NeNe acted on the reunion this year, so much so that he might not ask her to come back. He thinks she has become a diva and was very irritated with her for not really answering his questions!"We have to admit that Andy did seem a little annoyed with NeNe during this year's reunion. He also revealed that he was actually offended when she repeatedly referred to Brandon DeShazer as a "queen" during the infamous Pillow Talk brawl. These reports were shot down by a Bravo insider -- and we find it pretty strange that she would show up to the upfronts after getting the boot. »

Even Andy Cohen seemed exhausted by the screaming in the final installment of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion, and I can't blame him a bit. This third episode just felt like one long, worn-out argument. I'm guessing this must be what it's like to break up with a psychotherapy grad student or a card-carrying narcissist. No wonder Andy stuck his fingers in his ears. This was really The Great Battle of Kenya and NeNe, which began with an argument about Marlo. It seems to me that Kenya has decided that if she acts like some information is horrible and damaging viewers at home are stupid enough to go along, which was definitely the case here. NeNe called Marlo and told her that if she filmed with Kenya, she wouldn't film with her! How childish and stupid and controlling! I was thinking, um, maybe NeNe figured that, since Bravo has »

And the fighting continues! Part two of the insane "Pillow Talk" brawl went down on Sunday's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... and this time, Kandi Burruss got into it with Cynthia Bailey's sister Mallory and her husband Peter Thomas. Check out the video above to see what happened when Cynthia tried to confront Kandi about what was actually said about her fiance Todd Tucker. We've never seen this side of the music mogul before! Kandi definitely seemed emotional and a little embarrassed by the whole ordeal. Burruss took to Twitter on Sunday to clear the air about why she got so angry over the conversation. "I know we're suppose 2 have self control as we get older but I'm not down 4 people walkin [sic] all up on me being all aggressive pointin [sic] n my face," she posted. "I also feel like if you're breaking up an argument you should hold back your »

NeNe Leakes likes to keep it real, and she's getting real candid about her costar Kenya Moore! The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star took to her blog after Sunday's "Pillow Talk" party (which escalated into one epic brawl) to clear up some of the confusion surrounding the fight. The party quickly changed from a couples counseling session to a fight club when Christopher Williams stood up to address Kenya's statements surrounding his marriage to Natalie Williams. What we didn't see in the episode (according to NeNe), was Kenya charging towards Natalie after she started screaming "don't back peddle now" when her husband started a conversation with Moore about the allegations she made during their wine tasting trip. "Chris’s wife Natalie started saying 'don’t back paddle [sic] now' and Kenya got up and charged out of her seat towards Natalie (but you couldn’t see that part) (I wonder why? »

Well, that escalated quickly!NeNe Leakes planned a "Pillow Talk" party for the ladies and their significant others on Sunday's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... but the party quickly shifted from fun to fighting after Kenya Moore showed up an hour late. Check out the video above to see what happens when Natalie Williams' husband Christopher calls out Kenya for labeling their marriage as "common law." The get-together was supposed to be a time for couples to answer some simple questions, as sort of a couples counseling session. But when random "How well do you know your mate?" questions were asked, the ladies and their men definitely seemed on edge. Last week, Kenya said that Natalie's husband would regularly refer to his wife as his "girlfriend" or "common law partner" ... and Christopher definitely wanted to clear the air. "I don't know what medication you're on …" he said to Moore. Kenya »

What started as an innocent pajama party escalated into an ugly fistfight - one that looks to have enduring implications - on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe Leakes organized a "Pillow Talk" relationship party as a sort of fun, free couples counseling session for the wives and their significant others. Random "How well do you know your mate?" questions were asked, but things began to get heated after Kenya Moore and her best friend, Brandon, arrived an hour late, and all hell began to break loose when the question "Would you judge your husband if he looked at another woman? »
