Television told the truth this week. Brandy spoke her mind on The Amazing Race. Damon made his intentions clear on The Vampire Diaries. Laura Bush revealed some surprising opinions. Lost introduced us to Adam and Eve. And Betty White told it like it is on Saturday Night Live. Welcome to Top Moments: Straight Talk Edition.
Laura Bush says she supports gay marriage and a woman's right to choose, and thinks a law allowing the former "will come" in due time.
"I think there are a lot of people who have trouble coming to terms with that because they see marriage as traditionally between a man and a woman," Bush told Larry King on his show Tuesday. "But I also know ...
Is it just us, or does anyone else think that the lengths our political figures are willing to go to in order to win some love from the American people is getting to the point of sheer ridiculousness? They've been on late shows, SNL, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, even The View. We get it you guys (and gal) are hip and cool. But if you happened to be watching TV last night, you may have noticed that all the current heavy hitters were appearing in some really odd places. First, President Bush showed up on the hit game show, Deal or No Deal, delivering a thank you message to a soldier contestant as well as poking fun at his low approval rating: But the icing on the cake had to be when we saw Hillary, Barack and McCain air a message on WWE Raw the night before the Pennsylvania Democratic primary. Their wrestling jokes were so cringe-worthy, we could barely make it through to McCains bit: Your take: How do you feel about our politicians making so many TV appearances, namel...

Apparently not at all discouraged by the fact that he didn't get to not ask J.Lo point-blank about her pregnancy, ABC Newsman Charles Gibson is forging ahead and will conduct an exclusive interview with President George Bush and First Lady Laura Bush at Camp David, just days before Thanksgiving/the tryptophan sets in.

American Idol may be over but Idol Gives Back is still going strong. In an exclusive interview with TV Guide, Melinda Doolittle revealed shes traveling to Africa this week with First Lady Laura Bush. The top 10 finalist will represent the reality show in an awareness campaign to help curtail the spread of malaria. Were giving out half a million bed nets, says the former backup singer, who will spend a week on the trip. Mosquitoes normally bite between 10 pm and 4 am. So the best-case scenario is to have this net, which is interwoven with insecticides. Not only do they land on it, but they die, so they dont spread it to other people.Doolittle will also perform Amazing Grace with a childrens choir, which she calls a lifelong dream. We think it is terrific that Melinda Doolittle is joining Mrs. Bush in Zambia," says Sally McDonough, Mrs. Bush's spokesperson. "Viewers of one of America's favorite television pr...
