Donny Osmond: I'm Going to Kiss Carrie Ann Next!

Donny Osmond

Donny Osmond knows the 7 Bruno Tonioli gave him on Monday's Dancing with the Stars was not the score for their make-out session. "That was just for the rumba," Osmond tells "When I walked out at the beginning of Tuesday's show, he waved his hand at me and I waved right back." Hand-waving may be all Tonioli gets these days since the 51-year-old entertainer has his eyes on another judge.

Castle: Is a Beckett-Castle Kiss in the Cards?

Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, Castle

Nathan Fillion's character on Castle doesn't take many things seriously, something that perhaps has rubbed off on the actor.

When asked what he thinks will lure viewers into the ABC procedural dramedy's second season, the 38-year-old former Firefly and Desperate Housewives star cracks jokes.

One episode, we actually take an episode from the first season and just changed everybody's names and filmed it again."

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's Michael Moloney on the Hill Family

This week we're in Suffield, Connecticut to pay a visit to the Hill Family. Known to local admirers as the "family choir," the 13 Hill family members — William and Catherine along with their sons, daughters, nieces and nephews — have motivated friends and neighbors with their musical talents, academic achievements and selfless generosity. Cramped living conditions and sorely needed electrical, plumbing, roof and other home repairs have continued to take a backseat to helping those in need and providing a good education for the children. Five of the Hill siblings and cousins living at home are college students, and the family also scrimps and saves to provide medical treatment and care in their home for cousin Shamia, who received a kidney transplant from daughter Sonia... read more
