The Bachelorette, Glee
There are lots of ways to handle awkward situations. Ignore them, which makes them worse. (See: this week's episodes of Breaking Bad and Glee.) Force them into the open, which can get emotional (Losing it with Jillian). Or just hit someone (Royal Pains). This week's episode of The Bachelorette reminded us that the one thing you should never do is change the subject to the weather. What's the best way to deal with an uncomfortable moment? See No. 1 on our list. Welcome to Top Moments, elephant-in-the-room edition.
Laura San Giacomo, Saving Grace
As Holly Hunter's churchgoing confidante on the gritty-yet-spiritual Saving Grace (Mondays at 10 pm/ET), Laura San Giacomo gives notice that TNT's uncompromising new drama is no one-woman show. We spoke with the former Just Shoot Me star, who reflected on her career, working with Hunter and matters of faith.
TVGuide.com: Do you believe in angels? Do you believe in God?Laura San Giacomo: [Laughs] Well, it's certainly something I've had to examine over the last couple of months. I've always been kind of a spiritual person, but I've really had to focus a lot on God. Rhetta believes in God and is a Catholic and I was raised Catholic so I understand that world. So I've just been reading lots of things about Catholicism. Lots of books by scientists who believe in God. Also a bit of watching the Colin Hawkins debate

Question: I'll send you pictures of a naked Bea Arthur for some Veronica Mars prattle. Come on — no one can turn that down!
Answer: How right you are. Here's some major-ass-prattle-poop: Mars' main man Rob Thomas is reuniting Enrico Colantoni with his Just Shoot Me lovah Laura San Giacomo! "She plays a woman who comes into Mars Investigation and asks Keith to prove that her husband is cheating on her, and the two of them kind of hit it off," Rob reveals. "So Keith is really hoping he finds evidence that he's cheating." Rob — who would only say Laura appears in "several" episodes — admits her connection to Enrico played a big part in her casting. "I don't think she would have done
Question: We haven't heard much about the show Related, which I believe is coming this fall to WB. Anyway, from the look of the preview that I saw, the show looked kind Gilmore Girls-ish cute. Am I wrong? I read a bad review of the pilot, but this critic didn't seem to like anything worth watching on television. Do you have an opinion on the show? Is it worth trying out?
Answer: The reason you haven't heard much about Related yet is there isn't much to tell. I don't currently have an opinion about it, because the pilot was heavily reshot when one of the four actresses who play sisters in the show was recast (Laura San Giacomo out, Kiely Sanchez in).
