    Bravo's original series debut of "Tabloid Wars" kicks off with two major cover stories. City reporter Kerry Burke races against time to cover a brutal Howard Beach beating that leaves three men hospitalized. This complex attack brings up many questions and dilemmas for Michael Cooke, editor-in-chief, who worries about the race issues this will conjure up for the city. Burke is then sent to investigate a tip about Robert De Niro's thieving nanny with the help of crime reporter Tony Sclafani. With the 10:30 p.m. deadline looming and his wedding just one day away, Sclafani is then thrown into another celebrity news scandal -- actor Christian Slater allegedly pinched a woman's derriere and was arrested. Sclafani heads to the Barrymore Theater, where Slater is performing in "The Glass Menagerie," to get the audience's reaction, and is late to meet his bride-to-be. Married gossip columnists George Rush and Joanna Molloy balance family life and work when their son’s sudden injury leaves Rush to cover a Gotti family party solo.moreless
