The Wiz Live!: 'Where's Toto?' and Twitter's Wildest Reactions

The Wiz Live!: 'Where's Toto?' and Twitter's Wildest Reactions
The Wiz Live! took fans back to Oz and took over Twitter Thursday night.

NBC's live musical featured newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy, and despite rave reviews for performance, there was one key component missing from most of the production: Toto! The canine favorite, played by a pair of adorable rescue dogs, appeared in the opening segment (as well as the end), but did not follow Dorothy to Oz – causing plenty of Twitter users to express their concern for the pooch. It's worth noting that in the original Broadway version of The Wiz, Toto did not make the journey to Oz either.

'Bachelorette' Trista Sutter on 'Marriage Boot Camp': We smell a franchise spinoff!

  • Pop2it
The "Bachelor" franchise shows are notorious for not having the world's greatest track record in terms of long-term couples. Only a few have made it down the aisle, but "Bachelorette" Trista Rehn is the original. She and husband Ryan Sutter were the first "Bachelor" couple to tie the knot and they are still going strong 10 years (and two kids) later.

But wait -- In Touch reveals that Trista and Ryan are going to appear on "Marriage Boot Camp" this summer on We tv. Say it ain't so!

In all seriousness, Sutter tells the magazine, "We definitely have difficulty communicating."

To us, this seems like a natural progression for the "Bachelor" franchise couples. In fact, perhaps they should just go right from filming their "Bachelor/ette" season to taping "Marriage Boot Camp." It might really help more of them stay together. And you know the "Bachelor" fans would tune in.

How Much Does It Cost To Put Kim Kardashian On The Cover?

On the latest issue of Us Weekly, Kim Kardashian showed off her bikini-ready body following the birth of Baby North. (Hey, it’s summer somewhere!) As it turns out, those “caught on camera” pics cost quite a bit to set up. Kardashian was paid an estimated $50,000 for her Bo Derek-esque photoshoot and cover appearance.

Getting Kardashian on the cover is quite the costly affair. Pictures of her wedding with Kris Humphries cost People magazine $1.5 million.

What do JWoww, Traci Braxton and Gretchen Rossi all have in common? They’re all going to rehab on the new season of We TV’s Marriage Boot Camp.

Is there trouble in paradise for Sofia Vergara and fiancé Nick Loeb. The couple is already on the rocks. They spent the holidays apart after the Modern Family star became fed up with all the rumors of infidelity.

She Spent Her Last Dime On Sheets?

She Spent Her Last Dime On Sheets?
Who needs money when you have a house filled with fancy flatware?

This sentiment may sound crazy but apparently R&B singer Toni Braxton felt that way as she admitted to ABC’s 20/20, her 1992 bankruptcy was largely due to her home decor shopping obsession. “I love dishes and house things, so I kind of lost it a little on housewares,” she said.

In particular, Braxton has a soft spot for china, faberge eggs and sheets -- one thousand thread count to be exact.

And though she was able to get herself out of financial distress for many years after her initial decline, her money problems returned in 2010 when she lost her Georgia home. During that time she considered posing for Playboy to pay the bills she admits, but ultimately opted against it.

But don’t feel too bad for the unbreakable singer. She currently lives in Los Angeles in a
