Fabio Viviani fielded his share of TV show pitches the last few years — including one with Bravo that never came to fruition — but the endlessly quotable Top Chef alum finally joined forces with Yahoo!, not a network, to launch his Italian-cooking series Chow Ciao. "[With the previous TV pitches] I was kind of put on the spot for doing content for the network rather than be myself," Viviani tells TVGuide.com. "Once Yahoo! approached me, they just asked me to be me." The 3-to-5 minute episodes, part of Yahoo!'s new slate of online shows, go live every Monday and features Viviani demonstrating his favorite dishes, which, of course do not include burgers (or "boor-gers"). Find out what else you can expect from the series, if Viviani will pop on Top Chef again, and how his beloved turtle is doing.

Anna Faris, Saturday Night Live

Okay friends, this week we are just outside of New York City in a beautiful place called Orange County. We're visiting the Korpai family, which is made up of dad, Jimmy, mom, Darlene, and two children, Hailey and Hudson, who live in a small town called Crawford. The family's story is actually a story we have never covered on any of our builds. It's really about the daughter, Hailey. She suffers from a condition called Acondroplasia, which is a very common form of dwarfism.
Zachary Quinto came out in an interview with New York magazine, unambiguously citing his sexual orientation for the first time while addressing different topics.
When discussing his recent eight-month stint playing Louis Ironson — a man who abandons his AIDS-stricken boyfriend — in Angels in America, the former Heroes star called the role "the most challenging thing I've ever done as an actor and the most rewarding," but also says it opened his eyes. "And at the same time, as a gay man, it made me feel like there's still so much work to be...

Lisa Edelstein, Good Wife
After years of playing second fiddle to Hugh Laurie's selfish, outspoken misanthrope on House, Lisa Edelstein is ready to have some similar fun of her own.
"I loved playing Cuddy for all this time, but I definitely wanted to shift out of that, because I've been playing this sort of repressed control freak for seven years," she tells TVGuide.com. "I want to have a little bit of fun."
Edelstein shocked House fans earlier this year when she announced she was hanging up her stethoscope after seven seasons — essentially leaving the complicated "Huddy" relationship unresolved. (The last fans saw of Cuddy was when House was driving his car into her dining room, so complicated may be an understatement). Now, just six months after her departure, Edelstein is already back on the small screen with a multi-episode arc on The Good Wife.
