    The live production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein 1959 Broadway musical, also starred "True Bloods" star Stephen Moyer as Maria's employer and love interest, the strict Capt. Georg Von Trapp; Laura Benanti as the Captain's fiancée, Elsa Schrader; multiple Tony Award-winner and "Private Practice" star Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess and "Smash" alum Christian Borle as family friend Max Detweiler. Somehow, each supporting star outshined Underwood in a show fraught with numerous problems, which were promptly maligned on social media. ... Kym Karath, who played Gretl Von Trapp in the film, echoed the family's sentiments. "Love Carrie Underwood but this...

    SNIPPET: "On Tuesday, Bryan Underwood was sentenced to nine years for trying to pass secrets to China.   The irony is that the Chinese government didn’t put him up to it, and when Underwood went to a Chinese government building to sell photos of a U.S. consulate compound in Guangzhou, the Chinese turned him away. They were not interested, or didn’t understand what he was trying to convey.'

    Aquanetta Gordon knew that her remarkable son's life on Earth soon would be over. "You can let go," she told him. "You can go home. When you get to heaven, tell Jesus to save that spot right next to you. That's for your mother." Hours later, Ben Underwood, the blind Elk Grove teenager who dazzled people all over the world with his ability to "see" with sound, died at home with his family surrounding him. Ben would have turned 17 on Monday. Instead, friends and relatives will be gathering on that day for his funeral. The service is scheduled for...

    NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The man convicted of killing a 10-year-old girl as part of a cannibalistic fantasy "gave up on being normal" and was driven by deviant sexual disorders and a downward spiral of depression, a psychiatrist testified Wednesday.

A jury will decide whether Underwood should be sentenced to death or life in prison, with or without the possibility of parole. The...

    A little bit of this, little bit of that. A tribute to our veterans with a picture that will amaze. Plus some TV tidbits. It's great, it's zany, it's offbeat, it's funny, it's true life. I speak of my new TV fascination…."Desperate Housewives" Plus what's with Faith Hill at the 2006 CMA Awards? Finally, the new series, "Brothers and Sisters". There's are very distasteful liberal flaws in this series and they could cause it to fail.
