Reality TV mogul Bruce Beresford-Redman has been arrested in Mexico after police discovered the body of his wife in Cancun.

The "Survivor" and "Pimp My Ride" producer told police that his wife had vanished during a vacation on Monday, and on Wednesday night, he told a Los Angeles TV news show that he was helping authorities search for his wife.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Detective Diane Harris told the Los Angles Times Monica Beresford-Redman's family believed her death "had something to do with foul play," and on Thursday her husband was taken into custody.


Bob Is The Ultimate 'Survivor'

12/15/2008 12:08pm EST
Last night Bob Crowley, a physics teacher from Maine, bested the rest and became the winner of Survivor: Gabon and the million dollars that goes along with it. At 57, Bob is the oldest person to ever win the title of sole survivor, and also might be the most likeable winner of all time. Through online voting and text messaging, the viewers rewarded him with the fan favorite award, earning him an extra $100,000 to go along with his winnings.

Bob truly outwitted, outplayed, and outlasted his competitors to get all the way to the end. When his back was against the wall on multiple oc...

Down To Five On 'Survivor: Gabon'

12/12/2008 1:17pm EST
Survivor: Gabon
Last night's episode of Survivor sets up this Sunday's grand finale, in which one of the remaining competitors will be crowned Ultimate Survivor and get the one million dollar check that goes along with it. Bob, Sugar, Matty, Susie, Crystal, and Kenny all had their eyes on the prize going into last night's challenges.

After the last tribal council, Kenny felt betrayed by Bob, who said he had a hidden immunity idol. The idol turned out to be a fake, and to make it up to him, Bob said that if he won the next immunity challenge, he would turn the necklace over to Kenny.

Bob had w...

Bob Outwits And Outplays On New 'Survivor'

Survivor Gabon
There were only seven players left on Thursday's new episode of Survivor Gabon, and old Kota members Corinne and Bob looked like the next to go. The alliance of Kenny, Crystal, Sugar, Matty, and Susie had a huge numbers advantage. Bob and Corinne knew they would have to throw a Hail Mary pass to escape elimination, and they came up with one of the more brilliant plans ever devised.

Weeks earlier, Marcus had found a hidden immunity idol and decided to throw it in the ocean so no one could have it. Bob crafted a fake immunity idol, and claimed that it was the one Marcus claimed to t...

Randy Tricked on 'Survivor: Gabon'

Survivor: Gabon
Last week on Survivor: Gabon when Sugar decided to vote with the old Fang alliance and vote out Charlie, a clear power shift was made. The old Kota members of Bob, Randy, and Corrine, who were in control of the game now found themselves on the outside looking in.

Instead of a reward challenge, the castaways were treated to the Survivor auction. The auction has been a tradition since the first season of Survivor. Each of the players was given $500 to bid how they saw fit. The biggest move of the night may have been made by Corrine, when she bid all of her money for an advantage in...

Tribes Merge On New 'Survivor'

Survivor: Gabon
After Kenny, Crystal, and Susie teamed up to blindside Marcus at the last immunity challenge, a clear power shift took place on Survivor: Gabon. The original Kota members, who had been in control of the game to this point, lost their biggest asset. As a result they found themselves in an uncertain situation.

The Fang tribe won reward in a golf target competition. They got to go to a feast held by an indigenous people and learn a lot about the culture of Gabon. The food and dancing was especially rewarding for Matty, who had suffered through so many losses on the original Fang tri...

No Merge on 'Survivor: Gabon'

11/7/2008 10:47am EST
Survivor: Gabon
Typically, the two tribes merge into one when the game of Survivor gets down to ten players. That was not the case on last night's Survivor: Gabon. Instead, in another twist, the remaining ten castaways were split into two new tribes of five. The new Kota tribe was composed of Marcus, Bob, Susie, Ken, and Crystal. The new Fang tribe members are Charlie, Matty, Randy, Corrine, and Sugar.

At the immunity challenge, the players were put to an endurance test. In the end, it was Matty who held on for victory for the Fang tribe. This tribe was made up of new members, but it was the f...

TV Ratings Wars: Who's Winning?

10/31/2008 2:09pm EDT
There is plenty of conflict and drama on primetime television, but the real war is for viewers. The better ratings a show has, the more valuable its advertising slots are. So who are winning the first battles of the fall season?

Thursday has long been the biggest night for network television. A big reason for this is that movies come out on Fridays, so movie producers want to advertise heavily on Thursday nights to try to get you to come out and see their movie the following weekend.

So far, CBS has been winning big on Thursdays. The newest installment of Survivor has been ...

Twist Eliminates Two Players On 'Survivor: Gabon'

10/31/2008 9:54am EDT
Survivor: Gabon
Coming into last night's Survivor: Gabon, the Fang tribe had lost 5 challenges in a row. This trend would continue as Kota easily handled Fang in the reward challenge. Kota won a picnic, while Sugar was yet again sent to Exile Island. Kota was happy and as confident as ever coming off their most recent win. However, they were not ready for the upcoming twist. When both tribes arrived for the immunity challenge, it was revealed that both tribes would be going to tribal council.

The challenge was a log rolling competition. The castaways would compete one-on-one in elimination mat...

Fang Searching For Answers On 'Survivor: Gabon'

Survivor: Gabon
Two more challenge victories for the Kota tribe has left the Fang tribe searching for answers on Survivor: Gabon. With this episode in the books, Kota has now won 10 out of 12 challenges. In the reward challenge, Kota looked strong and determined, while Fang looked weak and uninspired. As Kota keeps winning rewards, they widen their advantage over Fang. The Kota tribe is well-fed and energized. Meanwhile, Fang is rationing what rice they have left so they will have enough to last them the next week. It looked as though there may have been hope for Fang at the immunity challenge. Matt...

Kota Continues To Dominate On 'Survivor: Gabon'

Survivor: Gabon
Coming into Thursday's all new Survivor: Gabon, the Kota tribe had won 6 of 8 challenges. That trend would continue as the Fang tribe remained unable to work together well as a team. In the reward challenge, Kota members quickly figured out what they were doing wrong and worked together to come up with better solutions. As a result, Kota was able to win the reward of fruit, seasonings, and an herb garden. The rewards have enabled Kota to get the energy they need for the challenges to come, while the losses have left Fang tired and searching for answers. After winning the challenge, Kota...

Survivor: Gabon
After nine days in the African wild, the castaways of Survivor: Gabon were finally settling into their tribes and creating relationships with their teammates. However, you can never get too comfortable in the game of Survivor, and several members were shaken up when it was announced that they would be selecting new tribes. After being ranked the most valuable on their respective tribes, Matty and Marcus were selected as the captains for picking the new Kota and Fang. The rearrangement ended up with Ace, Crystal, GC, Kelly, Ken, Matty, and Jacquie on the new Fang tribe and Bob, Charlie, C...

Fang Tribe Strikes Back On 'Survivor,' Paloma Eliminated

10/3/2008 9:19am EDT
Survivor: Gabon
On the new Survivor: Gabon, the Fang Tribe clearly benefited from an addition by subtractions. After dismal performances in the season opener, the Fang Tribe was sent to back-to-back tribal councils. Of course, losing tribe members and the numbers advantage is not ideal, but the Fang Tribe made the most of their situation. They used the opportunities to vote out Gillian, a grandmother who had been a very weak competitor at challenges, and Michelle, whose toxic attitude was poisoning the unit. Their choices would serve them well in the upcoming challenges.

Regrouped and ready to com...
