Group therapy session? Wake-up call? Just a darn good show? Or maybe all three. But one thing is for sure, nobody will soon forget Rick Owens' spring 2014 runway show. The California-raised, Paris-based designer recruited step dancers from college sororities all over the U.S., including Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the Los Angeles area to come to Paris and perform. The lights came up, and there they came, descending the staircases at the top of the runway, dancing, clapping and stomping, all body types and sizes.

Rick Neuheisel's career path has gone in interesting directions since he was asked to leave UCLA. The former Bruins coach is a polished commentator for the Pac-12 Networks. For those who don't have DirecTV, he is funny and insightful. Musically, though, he still has a ways to go. He popped up on the "Dan Patrick Show" this week to sing "The Ballad of Johnny Manziel ," borrowing the tune from Marty Robbins' "El Paso. " It's not a hit. “Flattening out the Tide” could have used some work.

Rick Warren said in an interview Tuesday on CNN that even with a loving family and access to mental healthcare, it was not enough to save his son from suicide. Matthew Warren, 27, fatally shot himself April 5 at his home in Orange County by using an unregistered gun that he bought on the Internet. “The day that I had feared might happen one day, since he had been born, and the day that I had prayed would never happen … happened,” Warren told CNN's Piers Morgan . Warren appeared on the show with his wife, Kay. They founded Saddleback Church in 1980 in Orange County, and Warren also wrote the best-selling book, "The Purpose Driven Life.

Billionaire developer Rick Caruso will be allowed to moor his 216-foot mega-yacht in Newport Beach after obtaining a special permit from the city. In mid-August, to the chagrin of several citizens, the Newport Beach Harbor Commission voted to allow two large yachts - including Caruso's - to moor for a set period of time near the west end of Lido Isle. Neighbors voiced concerns over potential noise and safety problems, in addition to citing a lack of transparency in the decision-making process, but no City Council members called for the decision to be reconsidered.

Maybe money isn't the issue between DirecTV and the Pac-12 network. Maybe there is too much violence … not on the field, but in the studio. Commentator Ronnie Lott was in the process of singing UCLA's praises after the Bruins' 58-20 victory over Nevada. The former USC defensive back took a tumble while jokingly tossing his wallet to fellow commentator Rick Neuheisel, a former UCLA coach and quarterback. Neuheisel quickly quipped, “See what happens when he says anything nice about UCLA.

A pair of mega-yachts, including billionaire developer Rick Caruso's new 216-foot vessel, will glide into Newport Harbor next month, and not everyone is thrilled with the pending visit . Caruso's yacht, the Invictus, is expected to be anchored off Lido Isle for 16 days during a two-month stretch, in part for a gala christening party. The owner of a second boat, the nearly 130-foot Marama, wants to anchor in the harbor for five days to host a private wedding. The boat's owner wasn't identified.

At 216 feet from stem to stern, the Invictus is a colossus of a yacht, complete with a gym, a theater and a dining room table that comfortably seats 20. And when billionaire developer Rick Caruso's mega-boat pulls in and out of Newport Harbor in the coming weeks, it will dwarf the cabin cruisers and sailboats that typically bob on the waters here. Even the long-running Balboa Island Ferry will be a speck in comparison. But the pending arrival of the Invictus and a second yacht, the 130-foot Marama, is also testing the patience of some Newport residents who say the massive vessels - even as temporary visitors - will be a nuisance and possibly lead to other large-boat owners making Newport Harbor a port of call.

After Elmore Leonard died this week, his 10 rules of good writing were passed around like a favorite memory at a wake. He called this his most important rule: “If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.” The word “sounds” there is key, because Leonard was a master of the rhythm, the musicality, of language. Does it sound like something you would actually say? Good. Does it sound like you're showing off? Not so good. A few days later, I came across a list of the “25 Things Editors Need to Remember When Working With Writers.” I agreed with almost all of them, but two are things I absolutely do. And I bet Leonard did too: 13. Suggest that your writers read out loud to themselves.

Rick Ross built his career rapping about his exploits as an above-the-law drug kingpin, a front he kept up even after it was famously revealed that in a previous life the Miami MC had once worked as a Dade County corrections officer. The news might reasonably have killed his ascent. But having survived the intrusion of reality, Ross doubled down on artifice, and since then his tales of a lavish and dangerous lifestyle have made him one of hip-hop's most successful stars. When he took the stage Wednesday night at Club Nokia, Ross was clearly hoping to control his image once again in the wake of yet another damaging episode.
