Ox Notes: June 12, 2007

Update: Frankie Abernathy’s mother confirms that Frankie passed away on Saturday. She was 25 years old.

NBC announced that The Biggest Loser’s return on September 11 will be preceded by a Where Are They Now special edition on September 4. It’ll be interesting to see if any of the contestants were motivated enough to keep the weight off without a hyperactive trainer breathing down their necks.

Also this fall, Smallville will be getting a new female character: Supergirl. My hope is that they already have some idea what they want to do with this character, and won’t have to shoehorn her into episodes (*cough* Lois).

And rumors are swirling that Real World: San Diego cast member Frankie Abernathy may have died over the weekend. MTV hasn’t confirmed the news, but her struggles with cystic fibrosis were chronicled during her time on the show.
