Washington Wizards big man Nene has been suspended for one game by the NBA after grabbing, shoving and threatening to strike Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler in Game 3 of their playoff series on Friday night. In a closely contested, back-and-forth game that Chicago eventually won, 100-97, the 6-foot-11 Brazilian was ejected with 8 1/2 minutes left in the fourth quarter after he took exception to Butler bumping into him and incited a brief scuffle. The two players jostled after the bump, coming toe to toe and forehead to forehead before Nene grabbed Butler around the neck.

The NBC network is beleaguered no more. After nearly a decade in the ratings cellar, NBC is poised to finish the prime-time TV season in May in first place in the coveted advertising demographic of viewers aged 18 to 49.  February's coverage of the Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia, generated strong viewership and $1.1 billion in revenue, Comcast executives said in announcing the Philadelphia-based company's first-quarter earnings, which exceeded...

The following is a blog documenting two Los Angeles Times editors' attempts to lose weight. It all began on Jan. 10 . Hey, remember that old saying, "I need to lose weight so I think I’ll stick a knife in my head"? Neither do we.  But it may just work (although it’s probably not endorsed by the AMA). A Chinese man apparently had a 4-inch knife lodged in his skull for the last four years.  He didn’t know it was there.  What tipped him off?

Herbert Hoover was still in the White House when Jimmy the chimpanzee first toiled as a zoo entertainer, pushing a baby buggy, riding a bicycle and combing people's hair. In 1965, already ancient, he threw a tantrum when zoo keepers put a television outside his cage so he could watch the space flight of Gemini 4. Today, Jimmy will wrinkle his flat black nose in haughty distaste at goodies like a tulip, a sprig of lilac, a chunk of watermelon or a sip of soda.

There's an unquestionably confident artsy-ness to writer-director Matt D'Elia's debut feature "American Animal. " D'Elia stars as a terminally ill, hedonistic shut-in named Jimmy whose life philosophy amounts to sitting around, watching TV, getting high and play-acting. He shares a spacious, modern apartment with his best bud and fellow layabout James (Brendan Fletcher), and when two attractive female friends, both named Angela (Mircea Monroe and Angela Sarafyan), come over, there's a lot of casual talk, sex, drug use and enduring Jimmy's costume-changing, language-inventing eccentricities.

Imagine the passengers and crew of the Titanic (the ship, not the movie) being told to swim faster and sing louder and you might have an idea of the approach the filmmakers take with "The Whole Ten Yards," a disastrously unfunny sequel to, what else, "The Whole Nine Yards." Four years ago, "The Whole Nine Yards" registered as a modest hit for Warner Bros.

Bastille rockin' the stage, Solange at the turntable, a caviar bar on ice and a Jeff Koons on the lawn. Jimmy Choo knows how to party alright. And party the brand did on Tuesday night in L.A. when creative director Sandra Choi hosted a launch for the new, tomboyish rock 'n' roll-themed CHOO.08 collection and newly redesigned Rodeo Drive store. The bash was held at the Beverly Hills Mid-Century home of Eugenio Lopez Alonso, the international art patron who recently sponsored the opening of the new Museo Jumex contemporary art museum in Mexico City.

L.A. is a place of new beginnings. So it's appropriate that British luxury brand Jimmy Choo should put its best foot forward here now. A new store design concept on Rodeo Drive, a star-studded Hollywood bash at the home of art collector Eugenio Lopez Alonso featuring a performance by pop band Bastille, and the launch of a youthful new rock 'n' roll-themed shoe collection are all part of a bold, new direction for the label and its creative director...

Anne Hathaway has yet to make good on her oft-professed desire to perform in a Broadway musical. Her Oscar-winning turn as Fantine in the 2012 movie version of "Les Miserables" showed that she has the singing chops. And if we need more proof, the actress appeared on NBC's "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday to remind us that she can belt it out as good as Broadway's best. Hathaway, sporting close-cropped hair and a black pant-suit number, was accompanied on the piano by host Jimmy Fallon in a series of rap and hip-hop songs performed in a humorously over-the-top Broadway style.

Stefanie Dolson seems like the type of person who is never at a lack for words. Nor does she appear to be one to fall back on sports cliches when being interviewed after a big game, like, say, the national championship. I'm basing this solely on the senior center's comments after Connecticut's 70-58 victory over Notre Dame on Tuesday to wrap up an undefeated season and a second straight NCAA title. "President Obama, we're baa-aaack!" she said into the ESPN microphone being broadcast inside the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., and on TV sets across the country.

Former President Carter met his adoring, book-buying public in Portland, Ore., on  Sunday, the Oregonian reports . The 89-year-old statesman signed 1,600 books in about two hours at Powell's Bookstore. Carter's new book is "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power," but fans were allowed to buy or bring up to six of his books to sign. Carter has published 28 books in all, 26 since leaving the White House in 1981. "A Call to Action" grew out of a meeting at the Carter Center in 2013 that included religious leaders and human rights activists.

The veteran skydiver who died Sunday after his chute failed to open during a jump in eastern San Diego County was the brother-in-law of famed NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson. In a message posted on his website Monday, the reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion  said his family was "saddened by the tragic passing" of his wife's brother, identified by the county medical examiner as 27-year-old Jordan Janway, of San Diego. "Jordan was an incredible son, brother, uncle and friend and will be dearly missed," the statement read.

The title "Bitter Homes and Gardens" is so right for Luis Alfaro's slender but evocative new play at Los Angeles Theatre Center's Theatre 2. Yes, the family he depicts is bitter--although the mother, Camelia, denies it: "Bitter is for those who live in the past. I'm miserable. Miserable is the present." But as those words and the pun in the title indicate, Alfaro sees the dark humor in his characters, too.

Two disarming portraits of corruption stand out in Matt Witten's "The Deal," now at International City Theatre in Long Beach. In the play, first performed in 1986, an FBI undercover agent prodded by his conviction-hungry boss embarks on a sting operation. Target: Tommy O'Hara, the prime wheel-greaser in Harrisburg, Pa., no stranger to bribes and kickbacks. In order to get the big guy, the undercover man must befriend--and essentially entrap--a small-timer, a gullible ward boss, Jimmy.

When high school senior Sarah Allen checked her email after lacrosse practice on Thursday, she saw an email from USC with the subject line: "A message from dean Erica Muhl. " Puzzled, the Overland Park, Kan., native opened the email and clicked on the link, which took her to a video message from hip-hopper/entrepreneur Dr. Dre (aka Andre Young) and his longtime associate, music mega-producer Jimmy Iovine. “The Trojan family is excited to offer you a spot in the class of 2018,” Young said as he sat in a music studio.
