The jargon on medical procedurals can be a mouthful. Miami Medical star Mike Vogel, who plays Dr. Chris “C” Deleo, has a trick up his scrubs to utter the words.
“You do your best at the beginning of an episode to look up all the terms so that when you say it, you don’t look like a complete idiot,” Vogel tells TVGuide.com. “It sort of becomes a contest as to who can get through as many takes as possible without screwing them up.”
ER vet McCrane on directing Miami Medical: I avoided the helicopters
Vogel says it’s not just the series’ heavy dialogue that sticks close to the real world. The show’s glamorous South Beach location also takes after the Ryder Trauma Center located in Miami. Vogel says the splashy setting gives the show license for more exciting medical emergencies.
“We get to play with diving accidents and just the kind of things that can happen in a town like that where there’s so much money and so much playtime,” Vogel says. “The imagination kind of runs wild with how crazy the cases get.”
With a group as close knit as the Alpha Team, the cases are just the beginning, since much of Miami Medical’s drama stems from the surgeons rather than their patients.

On Friday’s episode, airing at 10/9c on CBS, the flirtation between Dr. C and Dr. Eva Zambrano (Lana Parrilla) raises questions about their relationship, just as the trauma team must deal with an injured wedding party.
Vogel is mum on if or when the two will move beyond friendship. “That’s anybody’s guess,” he says with a laugh. “Certainly, there’s a lot of fun to play with the push and pull of inner-work relationships and we do our best to exploit it.”
Romantic tension aside, Dr. C already has personnel problems to deal with because of the new head of the Alpha Team, Dr. Matthew Proctor (Jeremy Northam). Proctor replaced longtime leader Dr. William Rayner (Andre Braugher) after Rayner abruptly walked out of the operating room in the pilot episode.
Miami Medical: “The rockstars of medicine”
“William Rayner was unflappable. He was a rock … and the fact that this guy can go under certainly puts all of our careers into question and how much one person can stand,” Vogel says. “Chris is certainly a regimented guy. He’ll buck the system all day long, but the way he was taught to operate is there’s an order and a way to do everything … So when you’ve learned one way and then another guy comes in who just kind of marches to the beat of his own drum, it throws him for a tailspin.”
Despite their differences, Vogel is optimistic about Dr. C’s and Dr. Proctor’s working relationship. “I think the two of them are a lot more similar than they’d like to admit,” he says. “We’ll learn this season; it will certainly come about and mutually respect one another for their cowboy ways.”
Poor Merliee Gerth can’t comprehend that Jesse James, who had at least four other mistresses in addition to wife Sandra Bullock, would dare cheat on her.
And you think you know someone …
James’ fifth alleged mistress often found him cheating on her with other women. It always sucks to be the other other other other woman, doesn’t it?
Merilee Geeth would go into his office on the weekend and Jesse would be “fooling around” with another girl. This apparently left Merilee “shocked.”
Note to Merliee Gerth: Imagine how Sandra Bullock feels!
Merliee expressed her frustration with Jesse, saying:
“Jesse doesn’t know anything about me … he is so selfish that even if I wanted to talk to him about my personal life, he wouldn’t be interested.”
Boo hoo, Merliee. Did you forget that YOU are the home-wrecker? At least one of Tiger Woods’ mistresses incomprehensibly said the same thing.
You girls are mad you’re not the only mistress? Really?
You are sleeping with a married man. Why would he be loyal to you in the least? Talk about delusional. At least Michelle “Bombshell” McGee admits she sold out James for money and claims she didn’t know he was married.

Tiger Woods and fed-up wife Elin Nordegren Woods appear headed to divorce court as attempts to heal their shattered union apparently came up short.
Elin has already met with a divorce lawyer, according to reports, and the final straw in their disintegrating marriage may have been his return to golf.
Or the creepy Tiger Woods Nike ad that accompanied it.
The New York Daily News, People, and his hometown Orlando Sentinel confirm the divorce lawyer meeting, and ET says the marriage is “indeed over.”
Numerous reports say Elin Nordegren was irate over the Nike ad that aired during last week’s Masters featuring the voice of Woods’ late father, Earl.
Already concerned that he was insincere in his efforts to change his ways and put family first, the ad spot is said to have pushed her over the edge.
Will Tiger Woods’ next drive be to divorce court?
According to ET, Woods believed his trip to rehab stint for sex addiction would be enough to keep his family together. Only temporarily, it seems. If that.
Elin is reportedly fixing up the $2 million house she purchased in her native country, fueling rumors that she is moving to Sweden for good this summer.
There is speculation that she will choose to live there with her kids after a split with Woods … and it would be hard to blame her if that were the case.
It is imperative to note that nothing has been confirmed by either Tiger or Elin Woods as of now. There is certainly more to this than we possibly know.
However, you have to figure things aren’t going well. All Tiger offered last week was that he was excited to be back … nary a word about his spouse.
Even worse? The fact that relations were noticeably better between the two as recently as early March, then cooled. Now they’re on vacation… separately.
What do you think: Elin Woods needs to

Week 13 was a rollercoaster for The Biggest Loser’s Andrea Hough, who won a brand-new car during a challenge and then got voted off days later. When the 24-year-old only lost 3 pounds and became eligible for elimination, along with Sam, 23, she wasn’t surprised her competitors chose to send her home.
The Biggest Loser’s Melissa: “Don’t tell me that I can’t because I can and I will”
“I had an idea that I was going to be the one going home, not because of any hard feelings, but because Sam doesn’t have a lot of weight to lose at this point. He’s not a threat, but he’s a huge encourager, so he’s a good person to stick around when it comes to the game,” Hough told TVGuide.com.

The one surprise for the executive assistant from Michigan was why she didn’t lose more weight her final week on the ranch. “I have no clue still to this day, but I do know that week I worked harder than I had any other week,” Hough said. She then added that the minimal number was worth the “huge gains emotionally and mentally” that week.
The Biggest Loser’s Stephanie opens up about first love with fellow contestant
Back at home, Hough is down to 206 pounds from her starting weight of 298, but admits that “temptation sometimes is so overwhelming. Sometimes I just really want chicken wings and I know I can’t have them so I try and substitute… but the temptation is definitely still there.”
Stan Rosenfield has a message for celebrity gossip followers: Tsk. Tsk.
The rep for Charlie Sheen thinks it’s just absurd that anyone would jump to conclusions about his client cheating on his wife, just because Sheen was photographed in an elaborate disguise… and has a history of paying prostitutes for sex… and is an all-around abysmal person.
Responding to this week’s In Touch Weekly that pictures Sheen on the cover (donning a fake mustache) and accuses him of nailing Angelina Tracy, Rosenfield tells E! News:
“The woman in question is the sister of one of Sheen’s campmates, and Sheen was only responding to a 12th-step call. Since Sheen knew he was being followed and how this would look, he wore the mustache in a tongue-in-cheek disguise gesture.”
Ah, of course! Sheen, ever the humanitarian, was simply assisting a fellow addict.
Instead of being up front about that, he came up with a “tongue-in-cheek disguise gesture” because that would come across as funny to the press, not shady.
If you buy that story, you’re probably also impressed by how large Heidi Montag’s natural breasts have gotten.

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, the Russian singer he knocked up while his marriage to his wife of three decades, Robyn was unraveling, have broken up.
They split after a year of dating and one five-month old baby girl together. Both now have kids by two people and are married to neither. Way to go, guys!
“They just drifted apart,” says a friend of the couple of the amicable split. “They’re both working hard on their careers and trying to raise a baby together.”
“They’re still friends and they’ll both raise Lucia together.”
Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva: It was a good run.
Gibson is in Mexico filming How I Spent My Summer Vacation, while Oksana Grigorieva is working on music. Next week she will perform in her native Russia.
In April of last year, the actor’s wife of 30 years filed for divorce. Later that month, he and Oksana made their first public appearance together as a couple.
Shortly after that, they announced she was expecting and the Octo-Mel jokes started flowing. But hey, he handled it better than his infamous DUI arrest.

Kevin Bacon’s dancing shoes are proving to be hard to fill.
After replacing Zac Efron in the Footloose remake, Chace Crawford has now backed out of the project due to scheduling conflicts, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Chace Crawford joins Footloose
The flick is set to start filming this summer, which would overlap with Crawford’s Gossip Girl schedule as the CW drama resumes production for Season 4 in July. Paramount Pictures will now most likely cast an unknown to play Ren, a source told EW.
Crawford, 24, is the latest high-profile name the film has lost in the past year. Nearly six months after Efron exited the musical to avoid being typecast, director Kenny Ortega dropped out in October, citing exhaustion from his work on Michael Jackson’s documentary This Is It. The project has also undergone a rewrite.
Julianne Hough grooves on with new projects
Footloose 2.0 still has its leading lady though: Dancing with the Stars pro Julianne Hough is attached to play Ariel, portrayed in the 1984 hit by Lori Singer.
Calls to Crawford’s rep and Paramount weren’t immediately returned.
