Strange murmurs from the world of reality television: Two "freelance facilitating producers" were apparently poisoned "after a failed shakedown attempt" in central Africa, Fox News reports. Veteran Amazing Race and Whale Wars producer Jeff Rice died; his body was found in Uganda. Though "details are sketchy," Fox News reports that the men were poisoned after "refusing to give in to the demands of local thugs." [Fox News, image via CBS]
