Ellen DeGeneres is facing a lawsuit from a Georgia woman who claims she experienced emotional distress after the talk show host featured her real estate advertisement on a segment called "What's Wrong With These Signs" in February 2016. DeGeneres joked about the sign reading "Titty Pierce" during the segment, though the defendant, Titi Pierce, pronounces her name as "Tee Tee" and claims that no one has ever mispronounced her name as "Titty" in "her 35 years of life," according to the lawsuit. Pierce, an electronics engineer and real estate agent, is suing for defamation, false light invasion of privacy, misappropriation of likeness and intentional infliction of emotional distress. In the lawsuit, Pierce says the show did not blur out her personal mobile number during the Feb. 22 airing. She explains that she was travelling to the funeral of a family member when the segment aired and began to receive several calls from unknown numbers. When she answered, she was mocked by "cruel voices" and continually harassed. “As a direct and proximate result of the Defendant’s conduct, Ms. Pierce has suffered stress, emotional distress, embarrassment, humiliation, anger and other mental pain and suffering,” the lawsuit reads.

The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm, starring Larry David, will return to HBO in the US for its ninth season. After nearly five years off the air, a resurrection of the show was hardly expected. Larry David, 68, will be reprising his role as an over-the-top version of himself. 'We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of Curb and can’t wait to see what he has planned,' said HBO programming president Casey Bloys. When asked about the exciting news, Larry said: 'In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, "I left, I did nothing, I returned.' Details of the new season will be announced as they are confirmed.
Queensland MP Bob Katter has defended his latest political advertisement and says it's 'screamingly funny'. While the independent member for Kennedy is known for his unusual political advertisements, some think he has gone a step too far by releasing a campaign video depicting him as a cowboy shooting two men dead. The video's release comes just days after 50 people were killed in America's worst-ever mass shooting in Orlando, Florida. Bob Katter defended the political ad saying it was recorded before the Orlando shooting. Despite this, the ad has been met with anger on Twitter, but some have praised its boldness. Television host David Campbell tweeted it was in 'poor taste' as Americans continued to mourn those killed in the massacre. But Mr Katter has told Sky News he goes into 'fury' when he hears this. He said although the 'political correctness brigade' have criticised the advertisement, the rest of Australia 'thinks it's extremely funny'.

Congratulations to Mark Collier of Howard Springs who, with his son Ben, joined me in the pits today (Friday) to take a few spins of the Hidden Valley race track. Mark was the winner of the Porsche Hot Lap competition Ali & I ran over the last few weeks in the brekfast show.

Needless to say the lads enjoyed themselves. Many thanks to Michael Almond and Dan Jordan for their hospitality and fine driving techniques.
