EDDIE MONEY: Fun times as a reality TV star
Eddie Money dove into the world of reality TV this year. And so far, it's been a fun experience.
The opportunity came via his pal Sammy Hagar, who has his own Road Trip show for AXS-TV.
Eddie says, "We signed on with AXS TV, this guy Mark Cuban, he owns the Dallas Mavericks. And I got turned to him with a good buddy of mine Sammy Hagar turned me on to him. And he said, 'Do you want to do this reality show?' I said, 'Well, you know, I'll do anything to help my kids out."
Three episodes have aired with seven more to go. While he jokes "my homeowners association is busting my chops for doing a TV show," he's pleased that despite shooting in his house, "they're not really too intrusive." He's "telling some funny jokes on the air" and promoting a new single. But his main mission is to help promote his musician son Dez.
Eddie Money wants to use Real Money to help launch his son Dez's musical career:
"You know, it's good for the kid's career. I'm just doing... y'know, I'm a typical American dad. I got five kids, you'd do anything you can to help your kids out. My wife looks great on TV. Me, I wish I could have done this show 10 years ago and 10 pounds ago."
40 years after his breakthrough hit "Baby Hold On," Eddie is close to signing with BMG for his new single "It's a Brand New Day." Right now, you can download the song from the AXS-TV site.

QUEEN: News from the movie set
The Queen movie, Bohemian Rhapsody, is nearing completion, and they've posted some photos and info on their website.
Brian May says, "I'm thrilled with the way our Freddie [Mercury] film is shaping up. Much more than a documentary of someone's life, it's a piece of pure art, chiseled out of solid rock. It speaks of families and relationships and hopes and dreams, and heartache and disappointment, and ultimately of victory and fulfillment, in a way that everyone can connect to. It hasn't been an easy journey -- but all the most worthwhile journeys are like that!"
And producer Graham King adds, "I’ve been lucky enough in my career to work with some of the greatest actors -- Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, just to name a few. But the performance of Rami Malek as Freddie rates up there with some of the best I’ve ever seen.”
The movie will hit theaters on November 2nd. Mercury died on November 24th, 1991 from AIDS at age 45.
CROSBY, STILLS & NASH: Hoping for a reconciliation?
David Crosby recently mentioned his old and estranged friend Graham Nash during a tweet about artwork.
Croz was asked about the artwork he owns, and then pressed on whether any of the photos on his walls were taken by Nash, noted for his camera work, Crosby said, "Yes, there is a beautiful one of Graham's... He is a very good photographer...even if he does hate my guts."
Hate is not a word usually associated with Graham, so we reached out to him and he told us, "Of course I don't hate David... We just don't see eye to eye anymore."
The two had a falling out following the publication of Graham's 2013 memoir, Wild Tales.
