The A&E network has released a 30-second teaser trailer promoting the new season of "Duck Dynasty," featuring classic Robertson family antics along with a brief guest appearance from Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. The new season is slated to premiere next Wednesday, June 11.
The short preview features several of the beloved characters from the reality show, including Korie and Willie Robertson, as well as brothers Jase and Jep Robertson. One scene shows Willie, Jase and Jep participating in a volunteer firefighter training course, while another clip shows Si Robertson, the classically quirky uncle of the family, engaging in some of his well-known ramblings to the camera.

Jindal is expected to be in part of season six's premiere, as he was filmed in West Monroe earlier this year awarding Willie Robertson the inaugural "Governor's Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence" for turning the family's Duck Commander business into a multi-million dollar American success story. more >>
"Long Island Medium" star Theresa Caputo is reportedly under investigation for fraud and many of her so-called clients are dissatisfied with their readings and claim Caputo has no real "gift" but plenty of sources helping her pull off a scam.
"Theresa is like a vulture preying on the most vulnerable," private investigator Ron Tebo told Radar Online. "I think it's despicable."

Showtime has renewed the original series "Penny Dreadful" even before the first season is over. It's a sign that the show is doing well, attracting over 1.44 million viewers for its debut.
"The show has been an interesting combination of genre credibility – it is simultaneously a gorgeous historical costume drama and a really scary, twisted horror show," Showtime president David Nevins told The Hollywood Reporter. "The question was, could we do a genre show that made sense on Showtime that had adult appeal and the psychological sophistication you expect from one of our premium dramas, but still satisfies drama audiences. John Logan has delivered on both."
"Penny Dreadful" features an all-star cast, including Josh Hartnett and Eva Green. The two play characters surrounded by monsters and other supernatural creatures, some known and others unknown. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and Dracula all figure into the storyline as well as Jack the Ripper and other monsters haunting the area. more >>
I've seen a couple things floating around this week in the media. Laverne Cox, the famous transgender person that stars in the hit series Orange Is The New Black, made the cover of Time Magazine. A big first for the transgender community. Also, you may have seen The Whittington Family: Ryland's Story, a 7 minute YouTube video about a little girl named Ryland who, with the support of her parents, is living her life as a boy.
While I do understand feeling "different" than most people in the sphere of sexuality, I don't understand what people with gender identity issues experience. I've never wanted to be a girl. So I'm not going to be all like "I know what they're going through"-because I don't.
To suffer that sort of inward conflict has to be a level of misery off the charts. To feel a pull toward a completely different identity than the physical make up you exist in has to throw people into extreme levels of confusion and depression, especially if the only person that knows about the inward battle is themselves. more >>
