LYNN LICCARDO: What Would Irna Think?
"As for the storytelling, I expect she would find fault with a lot, as have many of us who love the show. But given Phillips’ penchant for insisting that her stories challenge society’s mores, I’d like to hope that Irna would be able to see in the emerging love story between Olivia and Natalia, and in how that story’s being told, that the storyteller’s essential kernel has indeed remained intact."

GREY'S widower heats up BURN NOTICE
BURN NOTICE has tapped Tony and Golden Globe-nominated actor Ben Shenkman to join the cast as the man of Michael Westen's dreams: a dude who can make his burn notice disappear forever.

Shenkman, last seen raging against Derek for killing his ailing wife on GREY'S ANATOMY, will play the recurring role of Tom Strickler, a smooth-talking, gregarious freelance spy broker who offers to cancel Michael's (Jeffrey Donovan) burn notice in exchange for an unspecified -- and potentially lethal -- job.
