Chatting with Billy V: June 16, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Michael Jackson is still on the cutting edge of technology -- the King of Pop is set to star in a new revolutionary video game. The game will essentially be "dance karaoke" -- which means gamers will see Michael Jackson dancing on screen and will then be challenged to imitate his moves. The game will be available on multiple platforms including Wii and Xbox 360.

Executives at the Bravo network took a long time deciding whether to go ahead with its "Real Housewives" series based in Washington after one of its stars crashed President Barack Obama's first state dinner, its programming chief said. Bravo was nearly at the end of filming the latest installment last November when Tareq  and Michaele Salahi  talked their way into the formal event. The embarrassment forced the White House to tighten security restrictions. Executives at Bravo said they were as surprised as the rest of the country to find out the morning after the dinner that the Salahis had gone somewhere uninvited; the gate-crashing was not encouraged or suggested by Bravo. Its production company had filmed them getting ready for the event.

Sources say Russell Crowe is attached to play the Edward Woodward role in a big-screen revival of the '80s TV show The Equalizer.
