After nearly imploding in Los Angeles last month, getting arrested for fighting with his daughter, “golden-voiced” Ted Williams is back in LA, living in a sober house for voice actors. Williams was on the CBS Early show this morning to talk about his recent struggles and about his quick exit from a Dr. Phil sponsored rehab stay.

Filling in this morning as host on Dan Patrick‘s nationally syndicated AM sports talk radio show, Entertainment Tonight correspondent (and former Patrick ESPN cubicle mate) Kevin Frazier (pictured) was in a unique position to comment on a report in the LA Times of an altercation last night at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel involving golden-voiced wonder Ted Williams.
Frazier spent Saturday tagging along with Williams around LA for an ET report. He told radio listeners that it was almost inevitable something like the reported hotel argument between Williams and one of his daughters would happen.
Billboards for Oprah Winfrey‘s new TV network are all over LA and now, the city is returning the favor. Of the ten finalists culled from 15,000 online and offline applicants for Your OWN Show, exactly half are from the LA area.
Leading the local pack is KTLA reporter Elizabeth Espinosa (pictured). As older sister to a brother with a learning disability, she wants to put together a program that can help other families dealing with similar household dynamics.
So as politicians wrangle about health care, television picks up the slack by offering more real TV doctors, and killing off fictional ones.
Dr. Phil, who’s not an MD, is looking for telegenic medicos who can spin off for CBS. The Doctors will features a panel of five medical experts who will discuss a variety of medical issues. Knowing TV as we do, we’re guessing the panel will include a plastic surgeon, a shrink, a dermatologist, an OB-GYN and a diet doc. Proctologist? So not TV friendly.
Dr. G, aka Jan Garavaglia, who claims to be America’s favorite medical examiner, a title that’s easy to defend, has new show to go along based on a book–How Not to Die: Surprising Lessons on Living Longer, Safer and Healthier from America’s Favorite Medical Examiner. The new series for DHC will use modern forensic pathology to teach viewers how to lead longer, healthier lives. FBLA predicts that everyone connected with the show will die someday.
On FOX’s Prison Break, Dr. Sara Tancredi got decapitated, and EP Matt Olmstead explains his artistic reasons which have nothing to do with actress Sarah Wayne Callies’ contract disputes. We’re guessing that her identical twin won’t be showing up in any future episodes.
