    What! a brand new million+ home and the kitchen must be renovated?
    Kate is just too much, and Jon is turning out to be a dissapointment. When will we see him with the kids? I tell myself I won’t watch but I will probably use the DVR so I can watch THE CLOSER and RAISING THE BAR

    I can’t think of anything more boring than Conan O’Brian and then add Ashton Kutcher. Can’t wait for Lono to come back.
