Oh, snap. Someone's brother is getting a major nuggie tonight. Surely, there have been overprotective parents on hometown dates past. But the siblings were just not down with “The Bachelor” this season. Desiree's brother straight-up called Sean a “playboy.” And let's just say that did not improve lovely Dez's chances at the Neil Lane bling. But more on that later. First, it was time for AshLee's date in Houston. She met Sean in a field outside of her family's McMansion with her tiny dog who was so small he was not visible in the tall grass.

LeSean McCoy was drafted in the second round, 53rd overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009. A year later Tim Tebow was drafted in the first round, 25th overall by the Denver Broncos. But McCoy has gone on to become a star, leading the NFL in rushing last season, while Tebow couldn't even find a team to play for in 2012. Still, McCoy's recent assessment of the former Heisman Trophy winner and two-time NCAA champion seemed a tad harsh. "My son is 2," McCoy told TMZ at LAX on Saturday night.

On Monday, the ladies of “The Bachelor” mansion embarked on “a worldwide journey to find love with Sean” -- one that began in … Montana. Yeah, the remaining 11 women didn't seem overjoyed when Chris Harrison told them their first stop on this little love tour would be Big Sky Country. But hey, they've been trapped in Agoura Hills for two weeks without TV or Internet, so they should take what they can get. “It's so exciting to smell the fresh air,” Selma said upon arrival at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake, hundreds of miles away from the lovely perfume-spray tan aroma of the famous mansh.

Naya Rivera of "Glee" and Big Sean have split up, the Detroit rapper said Wednesday.  The couple, who met on Twitter -- she followed him first -- got engaged in October, only six months after making their public debut as a couple at the premiere of the movie "42. "  Big Sean's rep said in a statement obtained by Us Weekly  that the 26-year-old rapper was the one to call things off. A source told the magazine yes, that's how things...

Before we get to the fantasy suites -- er, I mean the candlelit dens of polite conversation -- a disclaimer: I knew AshLee was going home on this episode. That's because I was at the “Women Tell All” taping on Friday, and she was there. And let's just say that she was less than pleased with our lovely “Bachelor.” But more on that next week. This week, it was time for Sean to get down and not-so-dirty with his final three in Thailand. Obviously, the big question heading into the episode was whether Sean would even opt to use the suites at all, because he's extremely conservative.

In the words of Golden Globe winner Anne Hathaway: “blurgh.” Did this episode of “The Bachelor” drag for anyone else? I always forget how painful I find the beginning of the season. The tedious group-dates with 9,000 girls and “I'm not here to make friends” declarations. The way-too-early proclamations of love on one-on-one dates. The jealous crying. It's all a bit too predictable. At least Sean is good eye candy. OK, opening the episode with a shot of Sean in the shower with water dripping down his abs may have been just a tad over the top but hey, I'm not complaining.

I got everything I wanted out of Monday night's “Bachelor” finale, but somehow I still don't feel satisfied. Sean chose Catherine, the bubbly, self-proclaimed weirdo who has been my favorite for weeks. Meanwhile, Lindsay -- who Sean long only seemed into due to a strong physical attraction -- didn't get a Neil Lane sparkler. But even after the picture-perfect proposal and reunion on the “After the Final Rose,” I didn't find myself experiencing much emotion. Maybe that's partly because I had a feeling this season would have a happy ending.

In hip-hop, it's one thing to ride hard for your respective side of the country. It's another thing entirely to declare yourself the undisputed bicoastal titan, and call out a laundry list of successful peer MCs you want to eradicate from the history books. That's the bombshell Kendrick Lamar dropped Monday night when his guest verse on Big Sean's "Control (HOF)"   debuted on Funkmaster Flex's New York City radio show. It is, shall we say, a shot across the bow. PHOTOS: 2013's year of controversial rap lyrics In his bars, the Compton-raised Lamar drolly declares himself the "King of New York," and gives Jay-Z, Nas, Andre 3000 and Eminem a pass from his wrath.

So you think your family is nuts? The fraternal train wreck of Gary Lennon's "A Family Thing," now having its world premiere in an Echo Theater Company production at Stage 52, will have you feeling Norman Rockwell-y about even those relatives whose loose-cannon remarks make you want to dive under the dining room table during the holidays. Compared with Lennon's crew - one's an addict, one's a felon, one's a suicidal writer - most of us can claim fairly normal pedigrees. Or at least we can be grateful that we're not reliving a version of the Cain and Abel story, relocated to the mean streets of Martin Scorsese's New York.

Ding-dong, the witch is dead! Tierra, the “villain” of this season of “The Bachelor,” cried so much this week that she melted into a puddle and drifted into the St. Croix ocean. But more on that later. Yes, this week's episode was set in the lovely Virgin Islands, cueing the portion of the “Bach” season where I actually consider auditioning for the show just for the free vacation. Sean flies into St. Croix on a tiny plane with -- gasp -- all six girls, explaining that he “wanted to break the rules” and travel with hot women instead of his usual pack of producers.

SEATTLE - The Angels barely flinched when American League West rivals Texas and Seattle added powerful left-handed bats this winter, the Rangers acquiring Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo and the Mariners signing Robinson Cano. They had just the antidote in left-handed starters C.J. Wilson, Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs and one-two left-handed relief punch in Sean Burnett, a veteran returning from elbow surgery, and Brian Moran, a Rule 5 pick with a funky delivery and superb minor league track record.

It's with great trepidation that I announce news that's going to create more nightmares for the defensive coordinators who must figure out how to stop Bellflower St. John Bosco on the football field this fall: Sean McGrew is getting faster, stronger and even better. Yes, he's the same running back who rushed for 367 yards in 17 carries and scored seven touchdowns in the CIF Open Division regional bowl game against Corona Centennial last season. Last month, he ran the 100 meters in 10.67 seconds, setting a school record.

HOUSTON - The news on Angels reliever Sean Burnett was not bad, but it didn't sound real encouraging, either. The left-hander threw another simulated inning in Arizona on Saturday but seems to have hit a bit of a plateau in his return from elbow surgery. “He got through it and he felt OK afterward, but he needs a little bit of work,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “And he needs to do it in a controlled environment.” Translation: Burnett, who would be an integral part of the bullpen if he was healthy, will not be starting a minor league rehabilitation assignment any time soon.

 Everyone knows about Sean McGrew, the talented sophomore running back at St. John Bosco. On Saturday, McGrew showed he can be a factor in track, running a 10.67 100 meters, breaking the school record.

When Sean "Stanley" Leary's friends heard he'd gone missing in Utah's Zion National Park, they drove hundreds of miles to help. Leary was well-known in the tight-knit world of mountain adventurers. At Yosemite National Park, he was an old hand, with more than 50 ascents of El Capitan under his belt - including a record-setting 2 1/2-hour scramble up a 2,900-foot wall that demands several days from seasoned climbers. He explored new routes up peaks in the Arctic and in Antarctica and was an ardent BASE jumper - an adventure enthusiast who leaps off mountains and other high places.

DeSean Jackson's run with the Philadelphia Eagles is over. As anticipated, the Eagles released Jackson on Friday after efforts to trade him ultimately were unsuccessful. The wide receiver is coming off his best season in Philadelphia, and is expected to generate plenty of interest in the free-agent market. Jackson, a former Long Beach Poly High and California standout, finished with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013. He was set to earn $10.25 million in 2014 and was under contract with the Eagles through 2016.

Richard “Dic” Donohue Jr. came to the edge of death after a bullet to his right thigh severed his femoral vein and artery. The 33-year-old Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority officer from Woburn, Mass., lost his entire blood supply after he was hurt during the pursuit of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects in an early morning manhunt on April 19. At one point, his heart stopped. But Donohue was resuscitated, and according to a statement Wednesday, he's taking recovery in stride.
"The Fluffer" begins as the light satire on the gay porn industry its title suggests, but then develops parallel stories of thwarted love and ultimately emerges as a coming-of-age odyssey of notable substance and honesty. That it is a fine example of modest-budget filmmaking, boasting first-rate acting, writing and directing, is not all that surprising.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- What reliever Sean Burnett hoped would be a significant step forward in his return from elbow surgery Tuesday was more of a stutter step, and maybe a step back. The left-hander, who had to be shut down during last Friday's bullpen workout because of elbow discomfort that doctors thought was caused by an arthritis injection, completed Tuesday's mound session, but it did not go well. “He's still not able to get over that hump,” Scioscia said of Burnett, who was limited by elbow problems to 13 appearances last season.

Sean Combs has been called many things over the last 20 years of his career: Puff, Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy or simply "the D, the I, the D, the D, the Y. " Although he famously shed his “Puff Daddy” moniker back in 2001, he never really ditched it. Sure, we've called him Diddy for more than a dozen years, but the rap mogul is going back to his roots to roll out his upcoming album. On Monday, Combs (sorry, Puff Daddy) rolled out a minute-long teaser video for a new track, “Big Homie.” RELATED: Sean Combs talks Euro-infused album, reinvention In the clip, he offers only a few seconds of the actual track, which will feature Rick Ross and French Montana, but there's some dramatic shots of his beloved New York City and of him strolling through a bodega, because Puff Daddy frequents corner stores.
