— Bravo is going to keep making shows about shrill women screaming at each other, and I’m going to keep telling you about them. This time it’s adult women who compete in pageants, aptly titled Game of Crowns. It debuts Sunday at 9 p.m., and it's got all the best/worst hallmarks of reality trash TV. Immobilized faces! Drama! Sequined gowns! Death threats! It’s like Amber Atkins and Becky Ann Leeman, all grown up.

'True Blood' RECAP - 'Fire In the Hole' [Spoilers]

Tb_manganiello

This week's installment of True Blood featured a lot of the things that viewers hate about the series (a bunch of random new characters, overcomplicating plot lines with Vampire politics, a stupid Civil War-era flashback), and yet it was still a great episode. 

We'll dish on tonight's most shocking death in a bit, but suffice to say the final season's ongoing thinning of the ensemble has successfully upped the stakes. It really feels like no character is safe. Plus, we got the return of Anna Camp's Sarah Newlin. Sure, she's a bit more subdued than we last saw her, but she was absolutely the best thing about last season, and I could not be happier she's back. Hide your stillettos, because I'd wager it shan't be long before we see Newlin at her most unhinged.

There were enough deaths tonight to warrant this episode's own In Memoriam montage. So, get ready to pour one (or two or three) out for those that didn't make it to the end credits, AFTER THE JUMP ...

Iran's Remake Of 'Modern Family' Excludes Gay Characters - VIDEO

Modern

Iranian television comedy Haft Sang, an almost scene-by-scene remake of Modern Family, has written out all gay characters or made them straight, according to Gay Star News.

The gender of other characters have also been changed to avoid mixing of the sexes before marriage.

The unauthorized remake tries to recreate the appeal of Modern Family within the religious guidelines of Iran’s theocratic state.

A comparison video made by an Iranian fan of Modern Family shows how blatantly Haft Sang has ripped off the ABC comedy.

Earlier this year, head of the American Family Association Bryan Fischer said that Modern Family is "poison", "harmful," and "lethal."

'Orange Is the New Black' Stars Laverne Cox and Selenis Leyva On Season Two, Becoming Advocates

Sophia

Whether you gobbled up all the new episodes of Orange Is the New Black in one glorious binge session or you're rationing them out throughout your summer, you're in for a treat. The latest batch of episodes, streaming now on Netflix, have all of the heart, humor and depth of season one, but spread more widely among the show's stellar ensemble cast.

The second season shines a brighter spotlight on many faces that may have seemed background during the show's first 13 episodes. Season two dives deeper into characters like Poussey (Samira Wiley), Morello (Yael Stone) and Gloria (Selenis Leyva). Not only is Orange Is the New Black telling more of these complex stories, but it's showcasing even more diverse actresses in terms of sexuality, race and age.

Outside the show, these actresses are making a huge impact, as well. Laverne Cox, who portrays trangender inmate Sophia Burset, has become a vocal advocate for issues affecting the trans community. She's made apearances on Katie Couric's daytime talk show (twice), served as Grand Marshal of NYC Pride March and even stood proudly on the cover Time Magazine.

We sat down with Cox and Leyva to discuss their experience working on the show and their increasing profiles. See what they had to say, AFTER THE JUMP ...

'True Blood' RECAP - 'I Found You' [Spoilers]

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 7.06.31 AM

I want to begin this week by thanking the man or woman responsible for somehow sneaking in my Eric (Alexander Skarsgård)-Jason (Ryan Kwanten) slash-fiction into the True Blood writers’ room. It made no sense and was completely unnecessary (just a dream sequence), but I certainly wasn’t complaining.

In addition to that scene, there were enough holes in tonight’s episode (plotholes! get your mind out of the gutter!) to remind viewers that this is True Blood, after all, and it’s best not to think too hard about it. 

Let's relive some of this week's insanity, AFTER THE JUMP ...
