One of my favorite things about NBC's "Grimm" is the relationship between the reformed blutbad Monroe and Portland Det. Nick Burkhardt. And my favorite part of that relationship is just how put out Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) acts whenever Nick (David Giuntoli) seeks his advice. The king of bad timing seems to interrupt Monroe at the most inopportune times, which he does again in "Lonely Hearts," debuting at 8 p.m. Nov. 18. But according to Giuntoli, the relationship is important to both of them.

Chicago got the "Seven Year Itch" a little early. After nearly two years of being stationed smack dab in the middle of Pioneer Court on the Magnificent Mile, the Forever Marilyn statue will be taken down May 7, according to the nonprofit group that owns it. Here are 10 reasons why we're ready to see it go: 1.    We don't have to feel sorry for her when her pedicure gets chipped. 2.    We may be able to walk across Pioneer Court without dodging her admirers. 3.    Tourists can go back to photographing their reflection in The Bean.

April 30 was a sad day for tourists and people with giant woman fetishes everywhere. The city announced the giant, confusing, Marilyn Monroe statue, titled "Forever Marilyn" is not-so-forever--it's scheduled to be taken down May 7. The announcement robs Pioneer Court on Michigan Avenue of perhaps its strangest and most disturbing tourist attraction since, well--ever. Not sure what I mean? Let me explain. From an early age, men are taught a simple truth. It is never, ever, ever acceptable to look up a woman's skirt.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? More like, try again, copycats. A controversial new ad campaign from the Benetton group was making the rounds online this week. It's on par with the fashion house's past attempts at using their ads to communicate a wider, more "wordly" message, and it is certainly hard to miss. The ad, which is a slideshow of various international politicians shown engaged in faux lip locks, has a message of "Unhate" attached. Scrolling through smooches between opposing political leaders is bound to attract attention the company is...

Some drivers have been parking their cars in the West Loop to save money and avoid parking at garages and meters downtown. The neighborhood is close enough to downtown to walk, take the CTA or ride the water taxi to get to offices. Plus, some side streets are without any parking restrictions. “We get so many people that come there early and spend the whole day there and park their car,” said Ald. Bob Fioretti (2 nd ), who decided to test a pilot parking program to address the parking issue.
