The older sister of Phylicia Barnes tearfully said Monday she had allowed her teenage sister to drift too close to the man now accused of murdering her, testifying in the trial of Michael Maurice Johnson that the then-26-year-old's unnerving conduct one summer night was the final blow to their relationship. Prosecutors played for the jurors a 16-minute video they said depicted Deena Barnes and Johnson, along with Phylicia and Johnson's younger brother Glenton Michael Johnson kissing and "nakedly" touching after leaving a June 2010 party on a dare that they go streaking together.

Let me start by saying, "YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW I FEEL, NO IDEA!" Once you see this episode, these words will be equally ingrained in your head like they are in mine, and it's annoying. Deena and another one of her meltdowns dominate the first half of this episode. She continues to cry and scream at Ronnie and calls her parents to come get her. “You have no idea how I feel. I can't explain how I feel, so I cry. I just hurt,” explained Deena. The roommates “chalk it up” to Deena being drunk and tell her to go to bed and sleep it off. She insists it is not the alcohol talking and tries to explain why she is upset.

This week's episode was a little light on the real drama, and heavy on the stupid, intoxicated kind that is both short-lived but high-strung and ugly. OK, let's just cut to the chase, this week was another sloppy meatball episode. The episode started with JWOWW and Roger finally hashing out the Bamboo-push situation and agreeing to stay together. It sounded half-assed on his part to me, but later in the episode, he meets her at the club and surprises her with all her best friends from home, so I had an “Aw” moment and forgave him. Besides Deena, in all her sloppy meatball-ness, the other main character in this episode is the stressed-out, overinflated, delusional Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

When we think of epic tales of love and loss in the history of drama ("Romeo and Juliet," "Anna Karenina," "Casablanca") surely one day many years from now we will look back on tonight's episode of "Jersey Shore" and add it to this canon.  After all, if a man and then a woman and then another man pursuing the elusive goal of "twinning" isn't an act of great passion and dedication then nothing is.  What is "twinning," you ask? Let's let DJ Pauly D explain it:  "Twinning.

OK, so Wes Case and I were supposed to be switching back and forth doing these "Jersey Shore" recaps (there are only so many brain cells each of us can afford to lose) but he's all big-time and judging a competition over at WPOC, so once again my standardized test scores must suffer.  As anyone who watches "Jersey Shore" knows, this is about the point in the season when the show begins to lose its momentum. Its ratings usually dip and viewers begin reading books or something.  But maybe this year will be different?

We have finally come to the end of the journey that has taken us to Miami, Florence and most important, Seaside Heights. Tonight is the "Jersey Shore" finale -- more than likely the last episode ever. I wish I had a little more enthusiasm for the end of the show, but I was disappointed that this summer at the shore house lacked excitement and drama. Let's see if the finale left a good taste in my mouth. The camp crew returns to the house to find out that Vinny and Pauly have rearranged the entire house . Mike, of course, whines like a baby because his Ed Hardy T-shirt collection was mishandled.

Theater audiences are typically faced with no-no's before the action starts — no recording devices of any kind, no picture-taking. Things are a little different at performances of "Bump," a dark comedy currently receiving its premiere production at the Theatre Project . "Flash photography will be encouraged," said playwright Robert Powers with a laugh. Intermittent bursts from cameras or flash-equipped cellphones, which could create something like a paparazzi barrage, fit right in with "Bump.

Michael Maurice Johnson pleaded not guilty Wednesday in the asphyxiation death of 16-year-old Phylicia Barnes, his former girlfriend's half-sister, as a dozen of the teen's friends and family looked on, many wearing purple. It was Phylicia's “favorite color,” her father, Russell Barnes, who lives in Atlanta, said outside the courthouse after the brief hearing. It has “been a long morning,” he said, mopping his brow and declining to say much else. “We're just letting justice prevail for right now.” A trial date has been set for Aug. 13. Johnson, 28, was arrested in April after a 16-month investigation, though police said they identified him as an early suspect after Barnes, an honors student from Monroe, N.C., went missing in December 2010 while visiting her older sister Deena in Baltimore.
