“The Newlywed Game” has been on the air since 1967 and in all those, oh, thousands of episodes they have never included a gay couple. Why? Because the rules of the show specifically state that the couple must be legally married, which whittles the number of same-sex candidates down significantly. Thankfully, the show, which now airs on the Game Show Network (GSN) and is hosted by Carnie Wilson, is about to welcome its first gay couple to the stage. And it’ll be Mr. Sulu from “Star Trek!” Yep, George Takei and his partner, Brad Altman, will be appearing on the show in October for a special celebrity episode. They’ll be going head-to-head with Davy Jones of The Monkees and his new bride, Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry, and Jonny Fairplay of “Survivor” and his lady. Davy Jones was my childhood crush, so I sort of hope he wins, but I think Takei has it in the bag. This couple got married last year in Los Angeles, before the whole Proposition 8 thing, and just celebrated their first anniversary. But they’ve been together for 22 years.

Yesterday, Jennifer Aniston
appeared on “Ellen,” and made the mistake of telling the soon-to-be “American Idol”
judge that she’ll be singing and playing the steel drum in “The Goree Girls,” a movie about a group of women in prison who form a country western band and became the Dixie Chicks of their time. So, of course, Ellen prodded her into singing. Turns out, Jennifer was kind of good. Or at least, better than one would have expected. “I would put you through to the next round,” said Ellen. We just wish she’d chimed in for a duet. Keep reading »
Martha Stewart has a sense of humor. Can you believe it?! She lets her daughter and her daughter’s bestie make fun of her daytime show on their own show, “Whatever, Martha.”
The pair of pals watch the craft-tastic episodes and crack jokes like they’re the Patsy and Edina
of homemaking. Instead of uppers and champagne, these gals’ favorite pill is control freak Martha. While they’re in their second season, I just saw this sarcastic television gem on the Fine Living channel last week and now I’m totes addicted to their hilarious heckling! Keep reading »
I don’t know about you guys, but this has already been the longest week ever and I could use a vacay. But since that’s out of the question, we’ll have to take a vacation with our minds. What better way to do that than indulge in some trashy tabloid drama? We did the dirty work and packaged the headlines in short, easy-to-read blurbs, cause we like you that much!

Last night, on the fatty reality dating show “More To Love
,” biggie bachelor Luke decided he was going to propose to his special #1 lady. But first, “The Fatchelor” (that was actually the show’s working title) had to take his last two options, err, girlfriends, to meet his folks. While his adorable, religious, BBQing, laid-back father’s side of the family looked straight outta the “Beverly Hillbillies,” his mom was an independent, sophisticado à la Diane Keaton
. And, of course, the fam disagreed on which was the right woman for their lil’ baby Luke. Keep reading »
In our exclusive, much-talked-about interview with screenwriter Diablo Cody
, Cody discussed a buzz-generating scene in her latest flick, “Jennifer’s Body,” in which Megan Fox
and Amanda Seyfried
make out. “They’re beautiful girls, the scene is hot — I’m not afraid to say that,” she asserted. So, is it really hot or not? Here’s the video evidence, so you can judge for yourself. “I know when I was a teenaged girl,” Cody says, “the friendships that I had with other girls were almost romantic, they were so intense.” Apparently, this is only the beginning of the scene, but it’s pretty steamy.

We’ve been seeing posters for Courteney Cox‘s new show, “Cougar Town,” all over New York, and on one particularly long subway ride, we stared at it so long that we started pondering her name. Wasn’t she Courteney Cox Arquette a few years ago? And isn’t she supposedly still happily married? We double-checked the credits in “Friends” (screengrab after the jump), and Courteney did go by all three names after she wed David Arquette, so what gives?
- Does ABC think no one will recognize her name, and they’re banking on her popularity to attract viewers?
- Was her full name too long for the posters?
- Has Courteney decided to give up her married name and stick to Courteney Cox professionally because it has a nicer ring to it?
- Or, are she and David prepping for a split?

While most of the major networks are waiting until late September to roll out their big gun shows, this week the CW is continuing their mission to permanently invade your brain by whipping out premiere after premiere. In addition to the launch of “The Beautiful Life” and the season three re-boot of “Gossip Girl,” they’ve already got us hooked on “Melrose Place” and “The Vampire Diaries.” Can’t they give us one night with out a trashtastically amazing show? Oh, but there’s some other good stuff out there this week, too. “Parks and Recreation” is back, and we think this season it will actually get funny. Joel McHale of “The Soup” finally gets his own series. And HBO has a new one for you starring (swoon) Jason Schwartzman.
