(0:00) Today's topics: Ron Artest's crazy name change, Lindsay's booze excuse, the "Jersey Shore" reboot, and the 2nd anniversay of MJ's death.
(6:00) Ron Artest in the house! So ... WHY did he change his name to Metta World Peace?
(7:50) What names did Artest pass on before choosing MWP?
(10:10) Hilarious ... Ron didn't even TELL HIS WIFE about the name change!
(16:00) Will Ron retire an L.A. Laker?
(25:00) Lindsay says she DIDN'T drink alcohol ... rather a fermented tea with a small alcohol content. So... Harvey and Jason do a TASTE TEST. You GOTTA see this ... because it ain't pretty.
(28:00) It's official -- Harvey wouldn't drink "horse piss" ... even if it were good for him.
(39:00) Crazy -- it's the 2nd anniversary of Michael Jackson's death ... which prompts Harvey to misspeak about the best part of his colonoscopy.
(46:30) The "Jersey Shore" cast will be changed after the fifth season ... is it good idea to disband their big stars?
(47:30) Mike says it's a great idea ... because MTV will not only cash in on the "J.S." spin-offs, but also interest in a whole new crew.

Hey i found a hybrid of harvey and charles. go to 2:20 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6LOSEzo1QA

But about Lindsay and her tea. If she really was drinking the tea and it tests positive on alchohol tests why was she drinking it or do you think she knew she could drink all along?

Why would it be legal or ok for lindsey to drink on house arrest when, if I drank the hooch in jailI would have extra time added to my sentence?

Was the tea kombucha? If so, it does sometimes does contain alcohol!

Look, she's gotten in trouble for this tea before, so if she indeed thought she couldn't drink legally it's the eleventy billionth example that she doesn't ever learn her lesson.

Lindsay can drink whatever she wants. And she doesn't owe tmz or me anything. Quit the preaching.

Re the Artest name change - could it be a good marketing move? Would an "Artest" jersey become a collector's item? How much is a "Lew Alcindor" jersey worth today? Or a "Cassius Clay" fighter's robe? (I understand that we're talking two different classes of athlete here as the latter are legends, but it's worth a thought).

I know it's early but have you heard anything about the Dunn and his passengers families suing the bar that served him. How do you feel about this if it were to happen and do they have a case?

Send me my teeshirt Harvey!

Harvey: "I don't know why Lindsay won't come clean on this?"

ANSWER: She's a congenital liar....and you only get to blame your parents until age 24. After that, it's on you.

Yeah, right, there's nothing wrong with this guy? "Star power"? "Positive energy?" Being inspirational? WTF is he on? And you guys rank on Lohan? Puhleez? And why is he talking like he's on something? Or coming down from something?
