Logan's 'Left Eye' taped death
The tragic final moments of Logan native Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes will be seen on "Last Days of Left Eye," a documentary airing at 9 p.m. Saturday on VH1.
The TLC singer died in a car accident in Honduras in April 2002. The footage in the special was mostly shot by Lopes in the month before her death. Director Lauren Lazin told the New York Daily News that the family asked her to use discretion in airing any of the scene in which Lopes, who was holding a camera, inadvertently recorded her own death. In the documentary, the singer talks about her battles with alcohol and former boyfriend Andre Rison, whose house the multi-platinum-selling musician burned in 1994 after the two had a nasty fight.
Eve: No Penn hanky-panky
Homegirl Eve tells the Web site SOHH.com that "there's no craziness going on" between her and Sean Penn. "We got mutual friends. He saw what was happening and he just wanted to make sure I was cool," the rapper said of the actor's curious middle-of-the-night visit to the Los Angeles jail where Eve was taken after being arrested last month on suspicion of drunken driving.

Is this thing on?
CN8's Lynn Doyle received her seventh Emmy Award in Boston this weekend for an "It's Your Call" episode featuring the authors of "Why Do Men Fall Asleep After Sex?" and a frank and funny discussion of the topic.
As Doyle accepted her statue from the National Television Academy Boston/New England Chapter, she cracked a few jokes, but wasn't getting much laughter. Then Doyle said that maybe the crowd was mum because they had just gotten busy themselves, which could explain their sleepiness. That sure woke them up.
The Contest results
"Sweet Fancy Moses," they've done it again! The team made up of Jeff Marandola, Ron Jones and Tom Miller, has again won top prize at "Seinfeld" Trivia, held Monday at the Khyber (56 S. 2nd).
