And it promises to be a good house too. After the last one, I was really hoping for a great cast in Celebrity Big Brother UK and I think we got it, save for the obligatory duds. The Americans that are repping our fair country are: Stephanie Pratt (yawn), the amazingly nutty, Gary Busey and our savior Leslie friggin' Jordan! Yes! Beverly Leslie is ... See the Rest

I love this story. UK's Michelle Keegan from Coronation Street's character Tina is on her death bed, but she won't look like it.
