Another show for Springer
Jerry Springer is getting another television show.
The Investigation Discovery network said Thursday that Springer will be host of "Tabloid," a new weekly series that will look at some of the bizarre stories in the tabloids found at supermarket checkout lines. The series will debut early next year.
ID said Springer was a natural choice because he's no stranger to over-the-top characters. Springer's brawling talk show is a staple of daytime television.
Springer said he enjoys telling stories that cover the full range of human experiences and emotions.
He's not milking his fame, but Ryan Gosling is lending his name to the cause of cows.
The 32-year-old actor sent a letter this week to the National Milk Producers Federation urging the group to advocate against the industry practice of removing calves' horns. He asks that they help stop what he calls a "barbaric practice" by requiring farmers to breed naturally hornless cattle.
The letter was released Wednesday by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Gosling has worked with the group before in its campaign urging KFC to adopt more humane methods of slaughtering chickens.
A spokesman from the National Milk Producers Federation said Wednesday that cows' horns are dangerous and de-horning reduces injuries to both cows and people.
Former Food Network host Aaron McCargo is trying to open a new bistro in his hometown of Camden, N.J., one of the nation's most impoverished cities.
The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill reports McCargo is applying for a $100,000 Urban Enterprise Zone grant to turn a vacant downtown building in Camden into McCargo's Bistro.
McCargo had a restaurant in Camden a decade ago, but it lasted only two years. That was before his 2008 victory on "The Next Food Network Star" and his three-year run hosting "Big Daddy's House."
His publicist says the bistro would feature "funked-out bold flavored food."
McCargo now lives in suburban Gloucester County.
Hundreds of orphans welcomed Madonna and her children with song and dance on Wednesday during their visit to the orphanage in Mchinji, Malawi, where the pop star adopted one of her Malawian children.
Madonna said she was happy to be back at the Home of Hope orphanage, where she adopted David Banda, in the western district of Mchinji near the border with Zambia.
