“It seems like it built up pretty evenly and naturally,” Helberg toldEntertainment Weekly of the big finale episode. “You start to see, wait a second, even though he’s married, the dynamic has not completely shifted yet.

CBS SUES ABC You’ll PAY for Ripping Off ‘Big Brother’

BREAKING NEWS

CBS wasn’t bluffing … ’cause the network has made good on its threat to sue ABC over an upcoming reality show which CBS claims is a blatant rip off of “Big Brother” … and it’s NASTY.

As we previously reported, CBS fired off a cease-and-desist letter to ABC last week … claiming “Glass House” is “strikingly” similar to “Big Brother” — a bunch of people living in a house and competing for prizes.

Now, in a lawsuit filed in federal court in L.A., CBS states, “If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then CBS should take pride in ABC’s latest reality television project, ‘Life in a Glass House.'”

In the suit, CBS refers to “Glass House” as a “carbon copy” of “Big Brother” — and calls ABC’s decision to green light the show an “obvious attempt … to capitalize on its unique success.”

CBS claims its trying to stop ABC from committing a blatant theft of its copyrightable expression, trade secrets and other confidential information.

CBS also claims ABC has hired at least 19 former “BB” staffers to work on “Glass House” — and believes the employees are actively disclosing CBS’s trade secrets and confidential information to produce the show. CBS also believes at least one “Glass House” exec has been trying to poach current “BB” employees.

CBS wants at least 3 former high level “Big Brother” employees who signed with “Glass House” to fork over $500,000 EACH for allegedly violating a confidentiality agreement they had with CBS.

CBS is also suing ABC for unspecified damages.

Stay tuned.

EXCLUSIVE! Sean Bean arrested: Police quiz actor over claims he sent abusive texts to his ex-wife

The Lord of the Rings star had his fingerprints and DNA taken before having a pre-arranged ­interview with officers

Held: Bean at police station yesterday

Sean Bean arrived alone at a police station yesterday to be quizzed over claims he has been harassing his ex-wife.

The Lord of the Rings star had his fingerprints and DNA taken before having a pre-arranged interview with officers.

He was arrested after allegedly sending actress ­Georgina Sutcliffe, 34, abusive texts and calls.

The 53-year-old turned up at Holborn police station in Central London at 12.45pm wearing a blue ­baseball cap and mustard coloured cardigan.

Bean was bailed as officers continue to ­investigate the claims.

Georgina, his fourth wife, is believed to have been told of the arrest last night shortly before she appeared in the West End production of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap.

A source said: “Georgina’s a smashing girl and she just wants to get on with her life and move on after the divorce.

“There’s been no suggestion of there being violence involved or threats but police take harassment ­allegations seriously.”

A Scotland Yard spokesman said last night: “I can confirm a man was arrested on suspicion of ­harassment yesterday and bailed until a later date.”

Bean first met ­Georgina in 2003 when she was managing the bar at the West End theatre where he was playing Macbeth.

The couple wed at Marylebone register office in February 2008.

They shared a house in Belsize Park, North London.

She reportedly left Sheffield-born Bean – star of ITV1 drama Sharpe – the same year but they got back together again.

However they split for good and the actor, now in new hit HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, was granted a decree nisi at the High Court in London on the grounds of “irreconcilable differences”.

He was previously married to hairdresser Debra James and actresses Melanie Hill and Abigail Cruttenden.

Bean wed school sweetheart Debra when he was 21.

The marriage collapsed after he moved to London to study at Rada.

They divorced in 1988.

Melanie, best known for playing Aveline in TV comedy Bread, became his second wife in 1990 and the couple had two daughters together.

Their marriage lasted seven years.

Soon after the split, Bean confirmed he was dating Abigail, who he met on the set of Sharpe.

The couple married in 1997 and their daughter was born the following year, shortly before they split.

A spokeswoman for Bean did not respond to calls last night.

Georgina’s representative said she did not wish to comment.

Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United: Blue Moon rises to the top of the table

Vincent Kompany’s header settles titanic derby to hand title advantage to Mancini’s men

Manchester City's Vincent Kompany scores & celebrates

Manchester City's Vincent Kompany scores & celebrates

The blue moon has risen. The new order is upon us.

And as the Achilles Heel that Sir Alex Ferguson has refused to acknowledge all season brought about United’s downfall and City’s triumph last night, there could be no Old Trafford complaints.

Fergie’s faith in David De Gea has been steadfast but when it mattered more than ever, the Spaniard capsized United’s title ship.

Deep into first half stoppage time as David Silva prepared to deliver a corner, De Gea was so obsessed with Carlos Tevez that, when Vincent Kompany lost marker Chris Smalling, the Spanish keeper was powerless to prevent the City skipper scoring the one goal that surpassed, in meaning, all six City claimed in October.

Driven on by the remarkable Yaya Toure, the side that was written off by most, including Roberto Mancini just a few weeks ago, are now just two games, 13 days, from ending the 34-year wait and being crowned the best in the country.

Of course, it is not done and dusted yet. Not by a long chalk.

Yet United did not have a shot worthy of the name. Only the most red-eyed of watchers could deny City deserved their victory, are rightly top of the pile, justifiably masters of their own destiny.

It was always likely to be nervous and twitchy but while Ferguson’s selection of Park Ji-Sung in a five-man midfield, with Rooney alone up front, might have ceded the advantage, City initially struggled to take it.

A dodgy punch by Joe Hart from Nani’s deflected cross inside 70 seconds only added to the palpable tension, City relieved that Michael Carrick’s drive thumped into Kompany.

Slowly, though, City were able to get Samir Nasri, Silva, Sergio Aguero and Tevez into the game, sniping runs that asked more serious questions of Rio Ferdinand and Co and Yaya Toure and Gareth Barry took more of a grip.

Not that either keeper was really tested in the opening spell, the highlights of which were a sliding Ferdinand clearance after Tevez briefly escaped down the right and Kompany’s soft booking for making contact with Rooney after the ball had gone.

City’s first shot took 25 minutes to come, Rooney’s attempted clearance ballooning high into the air with Joleon Lescott flicking back into the danger area but Aguero blazing high and wide of David De Gea’s goal.

Rooney was starting to get irritated as City, Nasri to the fore, threatened.

Aguero, twisting inside the box, could not find sufficient purchase on his shot after Nasri teased the ball in from the right before Pablo Zabaleta, who walked through Patrice Evra, swung a weak left foot as the ball was set to fall onto Aguero’s right.

Rooney retrieved Nani’s deep cross but there was nobody there to apply the finishing touch before Park smashed a clever short-corner move miles too high.

And then, in stoppage time, the red line was breached.

Nasri’s cross was turned behind. Silva swung in the corner, De Gea stayed on his line and with Chris Smalling caught under the ball, Kompany’s header ripped into the back of the net to send the Etihad into meltdown.

United, struggling all game down their left as Nasri and Zabaleta linked, needed to change things.

But while Hart fumbled a speculative Nani shot, City were more poised in possession, more potent in attack.

Nasri, fed by Barry, turned to shoot wide before Ferguson acted, though sending Danny Welbeck on for Park before the hour seemed an admission of a tactical and strategic error.

At least, for the first time, Rooney had company against Kompany yet United lacked any precision in their final ball and City remained in charge, De Gea kicking away Toure’s left-wing cross.

Mancini hooked Tevez, sending on Nigel De Jong to reinforce midfield, another bulwark against a late siege although Toure, a force of nature, was twice so close after trademark runs and 25-yarders that fizzed past the frame of the goal.

De Jong’s foul on Welbeck saw Fergie and Mancini going toe to toe, hammer and tongs, with fourth official Mike Jones intervening between the pair before each was dragged away.

City kept coming, De Gea foiling Gael Clichy, Nasri denied as he tried to walk the ball in.

Not even five minutes of “Fergie time” could alter this one. City are within touching distance of glory.

Your card details are ‘stolen out of thin air’: Information could be ‘robbed by radiowave’ thanks to new contactless technology

Insecure: Radio frequency identification (RFID), transmits bank details via its own radio signal and could be a fraud risk

Insecure: Radio frequency identification (RFID), transmits bank details via its own radio signal and could be a fraud risk

Millions of credit and debit card users could be ‘robbed by radiowave’ because of new contactless technology being brought in by banks.

Almost 20million shoppers are now able to buy goods by simply waving their card in front of a reader at the tills, even if it is still in a wallet or a purse.

But industry experts have warned that the information emitted by the cards can be stolen by fraudsters using handheld receptors that cost as little as £7 on the internet.

It means cardholders – most of whom are given a contactless card automatically when their old one expires – can unknowingly surrender their personal bank details to a thief by simply walking past them in the street.

The technology in the card, known as radio frequency identification (RFID), transmits bank details via its own radio signal, and is accepted in many High Street chains, including Co-op, Boots and Pret-a-Manger.

t does away with the need for a customer inputting their PIN when buying goods, and was designed to reduce queues at the checkout.

However, a fraudster with a contactless card reader can easily collect the 16-digit credit card number, expiry date and name – known as RFID skimming – from anyone who walks past carrying one of the new cards.

Vulnerable: Cards can be protected from RFID skimmers by being wrapped in tin foil or being kept in special foil-lined wallets

They then have enough information to rack up huge bills at any internet shopping site – such as Amazon – that does not demand the three-digit security code on the back of the card.

David Maxwell, a former policeman and director of RFIDprotect, a firm which specialises in protection against card fraud, said: ‘It has been a big problem in America for a while and is getting to be a big problem over here.’

Cards can be protected from RFID skimmers by being wrapped in tin foil or being kept in special foil-lined wallets.

Customers should also call their banks as soon as they suspect their card is being used fraudulently.

Ron Delnevo, of independent ATM operator Bank Machine, said: ‘Nobody really wants this technology yet it is being handed down to us by the banking industry. It is putting us all at increased risk of fraud.’

Room for one more? Stunning pictures of U.S. troops crammed into military plane as they fly out to Afghanistan

U.S. troops sit tightly beside one another in a packed aircraft as they await their departure to Afghanistan, in stunning pictures taken today.

The servicemen sit aboard the military plane at the U.S. Transit Centre in Manas, 30 km outside Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek.

The onward movement of personnel to and from Afghanistan is one of the four mission pillars of the centre that is used as a transit hub for about 15,000 troops, planes and 500 tons of cargo a month. The other three are airlift, aerial refueling and humanitarian assistance.
