When People revealed the “big” star coming out of the closet on May 7 would be country star Chely Wright, I was, like, who?! If we’re not talking the Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain, or Taylor Swift, I don’t know crap about country. But apparently, Wright, 39, is huge in the country music scene and it’s a big deal that she’s the first major country artist to out herself as a lesbian.

George Clooney has always been a bit of a ladies man. The self-proclaimed eternal bachelor — who has vowed to never, ever, ever marry — has dated a slew of Hollywood starlets and pretty, young unknowns.

FX’s popular suspenseful drama “Damages” begins its second season tonight and we’ve heard tons of great things about the show. Unfortunately, the first season’s episodes are not available online, but you can read the recaps here if you want to get up to speed before trying the show out this evening.

From what we understand, this season Ellen sheds her good girl image and transforms into this manipulative back-stabbing vixen, giving her boss some competition. So how do you know Rose’s face? Everything we could find out about her, after the jump…

He’s sexy enough to play James Dean, funny enough to host “Saturday Night Live,” bad enough to play a classic comic book villain, sophisticated enough to be the face of Gucci pour Homme, and brave enough to go gay — twice. James Franco is more than just a pretty face, he’s the kind of actor that at 30 has already earned the respect and admiration of his peers.

In his latest movie, “Milk,” the story of gay activist and San Francisco city supervisor Harvey Milk, he stars alongside Emile Hirsch and Sean Penn.

It’s a bold move, but James Franco isn’t your average actor. Here’s what we found out about the man behind all those legends. Keep reading »
