LOS ANGELES - An anti-profanity crusader asked ABC on Tuesday to pull this week's Modern Family episode, in which a toddler appears to use a bleeped curse word. "Our main goal is to stop this from happening," said McKay Hatch, an 18-year-old college student who founded the No Cussing Club in 2007. "If we don't, at least ABC knows that people all over the world don't want to have a 2-year-old saying the 'F-bomb' on TV. " "We hope they know better," said Hatch. He was asking his club's membership, which he said totaled 35,000 in the United States and about three dozen other countries, to complain to ABC. ABC had yet to respond, he said Tuesday.

"I had rehearsed and rehearsed it, and the day came when I finally got Chris into the house," said Piacquadio, 52, a Realtor with Main Street Realty in Collingswood.

Earlier this week, at a party in New York to celebrate her book Whatever . . . Love Is Love , Norristown-born actress Maria Bello watched as her father had celebrity chef Mario Batali put salami directly into his mouth. "My dad was definitely the king," Bello said with pride.
