Scotty Granger on Wipeout

Louisiana Native Scotty Granger Survives On Bravo’s ‘Platinum Hit’

Louisiana native Scotty Granger survives another round on Bravo's 'Platinum Hit', a TV show that gives more of a behind-the-scenes look than most reality shows. It also incorporates plenty of personality, drama and romance. The cast includes New Orleans native Scotty, who you may remember from the 2009 season of ABC's 'Wipeout'. He's the great-nephew of Mahalia Jackson and the brother of NBA All-Star Danny Granger, so you can see why he's a talented musician and athlete! I got the chance to chat with him today about the show- listen below. Watch 'Platinum Hit' on Fridays at 7pm Central on Bravo!

‘Bad Teacher’ Could Have Been Titled ‘Bad Movie’

Shannon and I went to Celebrity Theatres yesterday, and we really enjoyed the tub of popcorn (buttered, of course) and the Coke.  And each others' company.

The movie?  Well, let's remember what Mom taught us about "when you don't have anything nice to say...."

New Movie Releases: ‘Larry Crowne’, ‘Bad Teacher’ [VIDEOS]

I know that the new ‘Transformers’ movie is supposed to be the huge summer blockbuster, but ‘Dark of the Moon’ won't be getting any of my money. I don't go for the big action-packed, special-effects-filled, very loud cinematic experience.  I'm looking for something nice and sweet and funny. So if I get a chance to go to the movies over the July 4th weekend, I'll be going to see Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in ‘Larry Crowne’ or Jim Carey in 'Mr. Popper's Penguins.'

Which one will you see? Check out your options below.
