Reality Show Fame and a Ride "So Pimpy, It's Disgusting"new

If you’ve ever wondered what happens to a guy who travels with his family in a Christian singing group as a child, grows up to host a local Saturday night horror program as a vampire Elvis (using an Eastern European accent learned from his immigrant grandparents), and turns his lifelong love of cars and motorcycles into a successful business, then you might tune into History Channel’s Counting Cars (Tuesdays, 10 p.m.), which starts filming its second season this fall.

Two Iranian Refugees Seek a New Life in Las Vegasnew

Mokhtar Hossein and Jamshid Afshar are both survivors. Both men lost their fathers to the Khomeini regime that ruled Iran from 1979 to 1989. A firing squad shot Hossein’s father, an Air Force colonel. After the regime put Afshar’s father, an Army sergeant, in jail for two years, he was finally released: a psychologically battered alcoholic. Both also fought as teenagers in the Iraq-Iran war. And now they are both refugees.
