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 »
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.

John Belushi, Horatio Sanz, Chris Farley … the funny fat guy has always been a successful stock character on “Saturday Night Live.” But is there a chick over a size six in the cast? Well, there used to be. More than a handful of hotness, Casey Wilson, was just fired after two seasons.
Some critics argue it was because she failed to create a memorable, one-of-a-kind persona, but then how do you explain Tim Meadows being given almost a decade to come up with “The Ladies Man”? There’s a bigger answer here and E! News went all Nancy Drew to find out why Casey got the pink slip. What they uncovered is pretty hard to swallow. Keep reading »

I didn’t need a crystal ball to predict that the CW’s updated version of “Melrose Place” was going to be kind of awesome. It seemed like Laura Leighton, aka Sydney, was going to be the major player on the show—she was sprawled out in a chaise lounge in the center of the show’s cast promo pics, which was confusing because any “Melrose” addict knows that she died in a car crash on her wedding day back in the ’90s. Turns out that she only faked
her death, with the help of Dr. Michael Mancini, and now has come back to be Melrose Place’s landlord. She was already, of course, sleeping with one of Melrose’s tenants, David—conveniently, Michael’s son. But then, just a few minutes into the episode, Sydney was floating face-down in the infamous Spanish-tiled pool. She’d confessed to David that she’d done something “really, really bad” and no doubt she’ll become this show’s version of Laura Palmer—the season will be about figuring out who killed her. Was it Michael, who wanted to keep her from telling his wife that they’d been boning? Was it David, who was pissed she was also getting it on with his dad? Keep reading »
Hey, so you know how last week we were all, “Yippee! ‘Saturday Night Live’ has added two new lady cast members!”? Well today, I’m all, “Oh crap, they fired Casey Wilson and Michaela Watson?” Broadsheet wonders, “Does ‘SNL’ have a lady quota?” Good question. Keep reading »
