Donna Summer's death has us feeling verrrry nostalgic -- we share memories of the Disco Queen with Ms. "I Will Survive", Gloria Gaynor ... and "Dance Fever" host Deney Terrio. What's Donna's best hit? The pick is unanimous ... almost.

Plus, UFC badass Chael Sonnen drops by to prove he's more than a hitting machine -- politician, author, Anderson Silva hater, vegan hater, and admirer of Charles' dreads? You gotta see this guy. And the Situation breaks "Jersey Shore" news ... under oath!

Donna Summer was great, but your "memorial episodes" suck. If would be awesome if you kept the death stuff to no more than 15 minutes.

Donna died, it's very sad, but you guys wallowing in it to get page views is just sad. I bet you didn't dedicate more than a few words to her since TMZ started, until today.
