Down--What? KFC's new Double Down sandwich isn't health food? But how can that be?

--Monica Beresford-Redman, the wife of a top reality TV show producer and the owner of a Brazilian restaurant and nightclub in Palms, has been found dead in Cancun, and her husband reportedly has been taken into custody. "Survivor" producer Bruce Beresford-Redman told police that his wife vanished. The reality, police say, is that he strangled her.

-- A new licensing deal sees Ecoist turning unusable or obsolete packaging from Lays, Cheetos, Fritos, Tostitos and SunChips into an assorted variety of items including purses, clutches and place mats. Or a potato chip bowl.
