Fan Gives Ty Pennington Roadside Assistance

Originally posted 09/17/2008 01:30PM

Ty Pennington got a little roadside assistance from a young Extreme Makeover: Home Edition fan after running out of gas on I-75 outside of Newport, Mich.

The reality TV star waved down a passing motorist on Sept. 13 who, luckily, recognized Pennington and pulled over.

"He was flagging us down," Diane Grassley told the Monroe News. "I usually don't stop for strangers."

Good thing her daughter Colleen, 16, was in the passenger seat.

"Mom, that's Ty," her daughter announced.

Indeed it was – and the two drove Pennington to a gas station up the road. They also gave him some homemade brownies.

Fall TV Watch: What's Hot, What's Not

Originally posted 09/22/2006 01:35PM

Watch It: Desperate Housewives (ABC, 9 p.m. ET) You can't care about television and not want the best for this series, which in its first season achieved a perfect synthesis of diva camp and solid serial drama. Then came the second season, a real muddle. Now what about season 3? In the opener, thrust into the foreground is prim Stepford beauty Bree (Marcia Cross). Her new love, the dentist Orson Hodge (Kyle MacLachlan), has a missing wife in his past. This unpleasant fact we learn from that excellent actress Laurie Metcalf (of Roseanne fame), who turns up as a sort of scolding messenger of doom. It's all very Bronte. There's something persistent and powerful about the show's underpinning of (fatally) abused women.
