‘Candidly Nicole’ Episode 6 Gives Throwback Tribute to ‘Beverly Hills 90210’

August 28th, 2014 8:29pm EDT
Candidly Nicole
It was the greatest show of all time, according to Nicole Richie, who took advantage of her throwback Thursday airtime to school lil sis Sophia on the show that changed the world. Considering her sissy prob wasn’t even born when the teen drama invaded our small screens in the early ‘90s, her ignorance of the illicit escapades of Brenda, Kelly and Dylan aren’t too surprising. Like any big sis, Nicole’s got her covered by dragging her down memory lane--where cell phones were nonexistent (unless you were Zach Morris) and looking someone in the eye wasn’t Emily Valentine creepy—via a “9-0-Tour-...

SYTYCD
Last night's So You Think You Can Dance 2014 performance finale proved why Valerie Rockey, Zack Everhart Jr., Jessica Richens, and Ricky Ubeda all deserve a shot at the title of America's favorite dancer.

'Big Brother' 2014 Episode 28 Recap: Folding Under the Pressure
Many Big Brother 2014 fans have been unhappy with the favorable ways CBS has edited Youtube Star Frankie Grande. On last night's episode, he was edited in villainous way. One of America's favorite players, Groundskeep Donny Thompson, suggested that Team America's mission for the week be to save him. The third member of Team America, Derrick Levasseur, was on the fence about the idea, but Frankie was completely against it. This could be setting him up to become the new antagonist of Big Brother 16.

'Motive' Season Finale Recap And Review: 'For You I Die' - Angie
In the season finale of Motive, we finally get answers about the League of Nations trial slash Angie's past subplot that's been running through the whole cycle.

The story begins not in the present day, with a flashback to the fateful call Angie and Cross responded to ten years ago. It's a domestic disturbance with Alfonso Dyer holding his wife at gunpoint. There's no right way out of this situation, and it ends with both Alfonso and h...
