We’ve heard from both Nadya Suleman and Angela Suleman. Now it’s time for the octuplets’ grandfather to speak.

In an interview to air next Tuesday, Ed Suleman admits to Oprah that he - like many others - has doubts about his daughter’s sanity. “Now I’m no psychiatrist, but I question her mental situation,” Suleman stated. And though he considers Nadya’s actions to be “absolutely irresponsible,” the 67-year-old is seeking ways to raise funds for all 14 children. Suleman currently lives in the same home as his ex-wife, Angela, and contributes to the family by working as a contractor in Iraq.

Since delivering his September 2007 speech (‘Achieving Your Childhood Dreams’), Pausch, who had been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer, had also shared his uplifting messages on and an ABC special.

Today, the father of three died at his Virginia home. He was 47.

Those who haven’t haven’t already heard his ‘Last Lecture’ (or read his book), can listen to hilarious tales below:


Interestingly enough, Pausch, who expressed his love of , was given a speaking cameo in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming movie. (The film will be released on May 8, 2009.) Until then, Randy will also be the focus of another ABC special airing next Tuesday @ 10:00.

CSI Miami

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (5/5)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9:00):  (The script was written by scribes.) “George Eads (CSI) has a cameo in which a CSI team investigates a death at Charlie’s house.”  I know Charlie wanted to stop Denise’s reality show, but this is quite a sweeps stunt.
  • House (FOX, 9pm):  “House believes that an actor (Jason Lewis) on his favorite soap is seriously ill after observing his symptoms on television, so he decides to intervene.”  If I had known something like that would work, I would have kidnapped Smith Jerrod a long time ago.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30pm):  “Sam’s affair with Todd continues while he’s still seeing a clueless Chloe.”  I’m sorry—why doesn’t Sam just kick her out of her apartment again?  She does own the thing, doesn’t she?
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Alexx is stunned when her son is the prime suspect in a murder investigation, and any help she offers could prove costly.”  Buh-bye, Khandi!

Sex and the City cast, Oprah

As FilmCrunch earlier reported, the ladies of Sex and the City will be making several stops to promote their upcoming movie.  Now we know of one more visit on their lengthy itineraries:  Oprah.

Come this Thursday (May 1), all four ladies - Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon - and will be gabbing with the talk show queen.  That date will, of course, kick off a month filled with appearances for the May 30th premiere.

Will Oprah dare question Cattrall and Parker about the rumored discord between them?  Or will the hour be all about shoes and fashion?  Who cares?  It’s not like I won’t be watching anyway.

House, Hugh Laurie

MONDAY (4/28)
  • Deal or No Deal (NBC, 8pm):  “Darth Vader subs for The Banker in a -themed episode that also features Carrie Fisher, R2-D2 and Chewbacca, who cheer on contesants in a winner-take-all match.”  As if I needed a reason to avoid this program altogether.
  • House (FOX, 9pm):  New episode.  “House suspects that an ER patient with a sunny disposition has a bigger problem than was initially diagnosed.  The reason:  He thinks the patient is too nice.”  I have to admit it—cheery people are a freak of nature.
  • Medium (NBC, 10pm):  “Joe surprises Allison by buying her a used car, but Allison’s subsequent visions warn of the vehicle’s unsavory past.”  Is it a 1958 Plymouth Fury that responds to the name ‘Christine’?
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “A clue in a case involving the discovery of a body point the CSIs to a robbery that’s being planned on a target who holds a disturbing secret.”  Murders have never been linked to anti-climatic or lame secrets.
