Six days a week, Gary and Bristol get up before the sun shines to bring you the latest from Nashville, New York City and Hollywood with Entertainment this Morning!

Wow! We already talked about how hot is was over the weekend in Death Valley, but that’s not the only place it was hot. The Primetime Emmy Awards were upstaged by triple digit temperatures. Olivia Culpo almost passed out on live TV, Mario Lopez was sweating like a beast and everyone had fans, which just doesn’t look good with couture… Heck, Alan Cumming reportedly wore ‘upscale Crocs.’ It’s that an oxymoron?

Author Jackie Collins, the queen of ‘beach reading’ died over the weekend at 77 years of age due to breast cancer which according to her family, she had been secretly fighting since 2007. Collins sold more than 500 million copies of her books world wide making her one of the most successful authors of the 20th century.

A group called One Million Moms is all kinds of upset of ABC’s new The Muppets series. The show isn’t even out yet, so I’m not sure they have anything to be upset about but they’re saying, "ABC has ruined 'The Muppets'.  How many parents want to explain the punch line of sexually charged jokes to young children?"

Last week Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best pulled their advertisements from The View and more are following suit after the ladies comments about nurses. The latest companies to pull their money? Party City, Snuggle and McCormick.

Miller Lite sent 24 cases of beer to Matthew McConaughey’s brother Rooster. Why? Because he named his son Miller Lyte. I’m thinking with the years of derision in this kid’s future, 24 cases just isn’t enough.

This falls under the category of who knew?!?! Bill Murray and his five brothers are being inducted into the Caddie Hall of Fame. Turns out they were all caddies at club growing up in Illinois and that Bill’s brother Brian wrote Caddyshack based on their experiences. Loosely, we hope!

Brett Eldredge says he knows the secret to being successful at karaoke! According to him, "Goofy songs are the best, like something where you don't take yourself too seriously. Just get wild and bring the crowd in with it and have fun."

This is wild… 42 years ago yesterday, September 20, 1973, Jim Croce and five others boarded a plane that didn’t make it past the runway before crashing after performing at Northwestern University in Natchitoches, LA. The crash is attributed to pilot error. All six on board died.
