TV's Youth Obsession Continues as Bobby Schuller Takes Over the All-New Hour of Power

"I want the Hour of Power to capture the minds of non-religious people," says Bobby Schuller.

It's rather stunning when you think about it, but since Robert A. Schuller took over as leader of Crystal Cathedral Ministries from his televangelist father Robert H. Schuller on Jan. 22, 2006, he was succeeded by his disapproving dad, his sister Sheila Schuller Coleman and his son Bobby Schuller. Before Coleman left in 2012 to start a new church, she had overseen the former mega-church's bankruptcy, ouster of her founder father and sale of the iconic Crystal Cathedral to Orange County Roman Catholic diocese. But a blast from the past came this week when Bobby Schuller was named host of the renamed and reformatted television show Hour of Power with Bobby Schuller. Call it an early Glory of Christmas present.

The again happy couple
Producers of The Real Housewives of Orange County are checking out Vanessa Bryant, Kobe's off-and-on-again wife, as a new cast member, an "insider" apparently claims.

"There will be a new girl and a new friend," an unnamed Mr. RHOC told RumorFix. "They are looking at athletes' wives. There is one who plays professional baseball. There have also been talks of Kobe Bryant's wife being scoped out."

Keep in mind that unnamed insiders have a validity rate that ranks down there with Mark Madsen's career 3-point field goal percentage.

Dennis Hour and Isabelle Du first met while attending Chapman University in Orange.

Perhaps an indicator that an Orange County immigrant community has finally made it is when some members join the casts of network television reality shows--within weeks of one another.

Which just goes to prove my theory: Tamra Barney Judge is obsessed with boobies!

See Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who this weekend on cable TV or in a movie theater.

I never got into Doctor Who, but I respect its devoted following, which treats every changing of the guard (and by "guard" I mean "doctor") as a grand media event. Indeed, BBC America is pulling out all the stops for Saturday night's debut of Peter Capaldi in the title role--on both small and big screens in Orange County.
