A hair-raising, er, hair-pulling picture

For much of "True Confession," the relationship between Carole Lombard's Helen Bartlett and co-star Fred MacMurray's attorney husband Ken Bartlett is pretty mellow. But when pathological liar Helen stretches the truth a bit, things can get, well, fairly hairy...

Any doubting Thomases should examine the snipe on the back:

Need it a bit larger? Okay:

We've noted this pic in the past, but collectors should note it's resurfaced on eBay. It's listed in "very good" condition (fairly nice shape, shows some wear, has a few to several flaws) and measures 8" x 10".

Bids on this item open at $129.95, with the auction set to close at 10:18 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday. If interested, visit

Finally, a reminder that my favorite sitcom, "Mom," concludes its sixth season tonight at 9/8c on CBS. (Earlier this year, it was renewed for two more seasons.) This highly regarded series about a mother and daughter in recovery and the AA group they belong to has been a critical favorite since it began in the fall of 2013; while not a huge hit, its audience is nonetheless fairly large and very loyal.

The five actresses who comprise the support group -- Anna Faris (Christy), Allison Janney (Bonnie), Mimi Kennedy (Marjorie), Jaime Pressly (Jill) and Beth Hall (Wendy) -- recently had some fun disclosing some personal secrets in playing "never have I ever" on the show's Facebook site. Hear their responses, then watch the episode tonight, as Christy celebrates another year of sobriety with a challenge or two along the way and Bonnie prepares to tie the knot with longtime beau Adam (William Fichtner)...but will she? Find out.
