-Change will also be coming to Project Runway. The Lifetime reality program will expand to 90 minutes per episode when it returns on July 29.

-Expect more drama ahead for The Real Housewives of Atlanta. According to a report, NeNe Leakes - who recently had a nose job - is splitting from Greg, her husband of 14 years.

In “Oh Sookie,” the rapper sings: “Oh Sookie, can I take you away?/ You ever been to LA?/ Come and play on my team / We’ll do it in the daytime / Bill won’t know a thing.”
