Sometimes people are described as being consume by their work. However for one meteorologist that idiom might have gotten a little too literal.
Liberté Chan of KTLA 5 thought that her dress was light enough that the green screen used to project the weather map would not mistake it for the background.
But boy was she wrong! Hilarity ensues as all of a sudden her body becomes part of the forecast, leading to a coworker putting his jacket over her like a gentleman should. more >>

Jencarlos Canela, the Florida-born actor set to play Jesus in "The Passion" live musical, says his role will stay "true to the Bible."
Canela, who is of Cuban descent, told Miami's Sun Sentinel this week that he believes the upcoming musical will manage to stay true to the Scripture while also maintaining a modern and exciting twist.
"It's going to be very different. It's just revolutionary. It's groundbreaking. It's not the Jesus that we are used to seeing with the long beard and the robes," the 27-year-old said, adding that while the musical is "staying true to the biblical sense of the story … the elements surrounding the story are modern." more >>

Madonna's international "Rebel Heart Tour" is continuing to draw the ire of Catholic leaders, the latest is Bishop Patrick Dunn from New Zealand.
"There is no question in my mind that some of Madonna's material is highly offensive to Christianity and will be found just as offensive to the majority of people of religious faith, as well as many cultural sensitivities," Dunn said in an NZ Herald report. "Here in New Zealand religion is not always taken very seriously, yet in addition to Christianity there are people of many other faiths, all together representing over half our population. In a multi-cultural and multi-faith society like New Zealand, it is imperative that entertainers not presume their own cultural perspective is that of the majority. Often it is not."
The singer will perform two shows at the Vector arena in Auckland, New Zealand, on Saturday and Sunday evening. According to the Herald, Madonna's stage at the arena is set in the shape of a crucifix with her Rebel Heart tour logo at the end of it. more >>
Iyanla Vanzant, the spiritual coach on OWN Network's "Fix My Life," is praying for Kanye West.
Vanzant has attempted to help people with troubling behavior like rapper DMX, former NFL player Terrell Owens and reality television star Evelyn Lozada. Now, she wants to help 38-year-old rap mogul West.

Vanzant thinks West needs an intervention and saw similarities in him to now deceased troubled entertainers indirectly crying out for help. more >>
