It’s a Have-and-Have-Not Edition of ‘The Mix’

Ernest Hemingway would no doubt be proud of this week’s nod to his 1937 novel To Have and Have Not.

Or maybe not.

The point is, by using such a cheap tactic, we’ve succeeded in grabbing your attention.

And now that we have it, here’s a sampling of what’s you’ll learn on tonight’s Have-and-Have-Not edition of The Mix:

CAPTION: "By the time I got done with her," Omarosa (above) tells us, "I had the laptops, the printers and ink for a year."

"By the time I got done with her," Omarosa (above) tells us of the uppity clerk, "I had the laptops, the printers and ink for a year."

-Why reality star Omarosa had a bitch of a time getting a clerk at an electronics store to redeem a valid coupon for 50 percent off a laptop.

-Why William Sanderson, who plays Sheriff Bud Dearborne on the hit HBO series True Blood, has an aversion to discussing the show’s stunts and special effects.

-Why Ralph Carter, who played impoverished Michael Evans on Good Times, didn’t need to get a call from TV mogul Norman Lear to know he’d landed the role on that groundbreaking ’70s sitcom.

-Why financier T. Boone Pickens - who’s worth an estimated $3 billion – wants to make July 8 an annual celebration of America’s independence from foreign oil.

-Why jazz-piano great Ellis Marsalis‘ kids - Wynton and Branford Marsalis among them – had virtually no interest in jazz as teenagers.

-Why Merlin star Anthony Head – who played Ruper Giles in the ’90s TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer – has no intention of bringing his character to the big screen unless original writer Joss Whedon is at the helm.

So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!
