Inside Edge: Lucky fans strike it Rich; Brad's wife laughs off tabloid "affair"; Miranda ditches Blake ... for Shakira?
Talk about being in the right place at the right time. John Rich tells Nashville Edge that a busload of fans on a tour of celebrity homes stopped in front of his Nashville house just as filming began for his TV special "Rich at Night" so he invited them to join the party. "It's in my house. I basically kicked the front door open and I go, 'Hey, all you friends and neighbors, get your country butts up in here, we're doing a TV show.' They come running through my front door, right up into the bar." John goes on to tell us about where the episode is filmed, "I actually built a honky-tonk in my house ... stage, bar, lights, disco saddle that used to hang in Gilley's is hanging from the ceiling." The debut episode of "Rich at Night" airs Monday night on the TV Guide Network at 8:00 PM ET. Watch for Kix Brooks, Gretchen Wilson, John Ratzenberger ("Cheers"), Wayne Brady ("Let's Make a Deal"), Gilbert Gottfried and Wynonna on tonight's show.
