I have a rather busy life. I go to work during the day, school at night, and spend my weekends doing all of my household chores, visiting friends, and studying for the next week. However, I'm not a lean, mean reading machine; I rely on DVR to keep up to date with television shows that I can't see during the week. Before my engagement, my DVR held episodes of Meet the Press , Real Time with Bill Maher , and Hardball with Chris Matthews .   Post engagement, I now record TLC's Four Weddings , a reality competition show where four brides compete to see who has the better wedding.

Randy Orton became the WWE World Heavyweight champion, unifying both top WWE titles and defeating John Cena in the lone match bearing the Pay Per View's name at TLC on Sunday night. Like most matches on the card, the match was entertaining, with some excellent dramatic moments, particularly near the end of the contest. At one point, Orton handcuffed Cena to the bottom rope and began to climb the ladder to retrieve both titles, only to have Cena unhook the bottom rope in hot pursuit.

Both CM Punk and Daniel Bryan both have 3 on 1 matches ahead of them at TLC - Daniel Bryan will meet the Wyatt Family, while CM Punk tackles the Shield. This creates two interesting matches at the PPV that will likely battle for the title of show-stealer. Much of RAW including the last segment, was spent highlighting the past rivalry between Randy Orton and John Cena and how their match at TLC will be guaranteed to unify the WWE/World Heavyweight titles (I'm still not 100 percent sold)

For this edition of our WWE pay-per-view predictions, I've added a little special twist. Last week, along with WWE Hall of Famer Bret "Hitman" Hart, I had the pleasure of meeting Nicholas Wright, who is a huge WWE fan. Nicholas writes a blog on wrestling as well as hockey , on which he did a "tell-all" interview with me. I invited Nicholas to join me this month to predict outcomes for the WWE TLC PPV:   Title Unification match: ...

Charles Street may be one of Baltimore's major arteries, but take a stroll up this historic pathway from Fayette Street to Centre Street and one can only conclude that a beautiful and diverse collection of buildings has fallen on hard times. There is no excuse for their shabby, down-at-the-heels appearance. What do we see? Vacant ground-level storefronts where no attempt has been made to decorate empty spaces. Paint peeling from Brown's Arcade; windows fronting on Charles — like those of the American Heart Association building — that are bare or tastelessly furnished.

After Raw on Monday, WWE champion CM Punk was rushed to Pensacola, Fla., to have emergency surgery with Dr. James Andrews. Speculation is that CM Punk has been working injured and didn't want to take time off, but he aggravated the injury during Ryback's attack on Raw.  WWE.com was the first to break the news, saying that Dr. Andrews, who has successfully performed surgeries on the likes of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Edge, John Cena, Randy Orton, Tom...

CRAZYSEXYCOOLTLC (LaFace 73008 26009)Few R&B albums celebrated the exuberance of adolescence with as much style as TLC's debut, "Ooooooh . . . On the TLC Tip." It wasn't the way the producers -- mainly Dallas Austin, Daryl Simmons, L.A. Reid and Babyface -- distilled hip-hop and club beats into a catchy, utterly accessible package; there was also an honesty and intelligence to the songs that kept them from seeming like typical teen-pop product. But TLC has done some growing since then, and the trio's second album, "CrazySexyCool," has a decidedly adult bent to it. Although that's most obvious in the bedroom talk that fills out such songs as "Kick Your Game" and "Red Light Special," that's not the only area in which TLC's newfound maturity is evident.

There seemed to be no public middle ground with Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. You were a fan, or you thought she was nuts. Lopes, the 30-year-old, hip-hop flavor of R&B megastar group TLC, died Thursday in Honduras, killed in a car accident while on vacation. She was the "Crazy" in TLC's "Crazysexycool" persona. It was a role she and those around her embraced. It was who she was - outspoken, sweet and temperamental. If you didn't like it, too bad. She wasn't a great artist in the truest sense of the word.

As a "Say Yes to the Dress"-er, I'm very familiar with all of the staff at the famous bridal boutique Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City. In fact, I'll be heading back to the big city in a few weeks for alterations on the dress I bought with help from the show's consultant Camille. Many brides don't get the opportunity to travel out of town for their dress and while there are many wonderful shops in and around Baltimore to find the perfect fit, the hype around Kleinfeld Bridal is something unique to itself.

WWE pretty much saved the best for last, in terms of pay-per-view offerings.   Even with WWE champion CM Punk off the card because of injury, WWE TLC was a terrific pay-per-view event with several great things to write home about. First and foremost, many fans were pleasantly surprised with the final image of the broadcast -- a victorious Dolph Ziggler holding his Money in the Bank briefcase, having defeated John Cena. Yes, you read that correctly. John Cena didn't win. Dolph Ziggler did, and the match was great.

The best part about RAW this week was the in-ring competition. Between Dolph Ziggler-Sheamus, Antonio Cesaro-Kofi Kingston (ignoring the unfortunate "boring" chants), the four-way tag-team match and even John Cena-Big Show (which wasn't by any means horrible), RAW provided a decent evening of wrestling. Many of these matches also had room to breathe, which in my opinion has been the best part of a three-hour RAW. Even if you don't choose to watch all three hours, you will have the opportunity to watch longer matches on WWE's flagship program.

Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, the surviving members of the music group TLC, will turn to television to find a third singer. They'll do it through a UPN reality series. And when the eight-week competition is over, they hope to have a performer to replace Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, who was killed in a 2002 car crash. "We want to find someone with the right chemistry and magic to work with us," the duo said in a statement. "We have been blessed with great success, and this is a chance for our fans to join us as we give someone a chance in a lifetime opportunity to fulfill their dreams."

For the past week, many wrestling fans have been excited about the idea of the Survivor Series pay-per-view being headlined by a traditional 10-man Survivor Series main event. But WWE seemingly couldn't leave well enough alone. After rushing to announce the two teams - led by WWE Champion CM Punk and WWE legend Mick Foley - on last week's episode of Raw, WWE seems to have let its own doubt run rampant and cause major adjustments to the teams and the PPV card as a whole. Raw opened with a pre-taped segment in which former Intercontinental Champion The Miz walked away from Team Punk.

The description at the TLC website for "On the Fly" gives a pretty good sense of the up-with-Southwest-Airlines tone that permeates this reality TV series premiering at 9 p.m. Thursday. " On the Fly gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the large-scale operation and personal customer stories at Southwest Airlines," the promotional copy says. "Each episode introduces viewers to Southwest Airlines employees who must think on their feet as they cope with weather delays, irate passengers, and more surprising situations.
