Today's News: Our Take


Pepsi SmashLook at Alanis Morissette,...

Pepsi Smash Look at Alanis Morissette, all grown up! And I love the hair. That Rapunzel look never really worked in my opinion, anyway. And I'm digging her new sound and song, "Everything." She's still a little hard to understand (after all, she is Canadian), but the lyrics go something like, "You see everything/You see every part/You see something something/And you love my dog." That's brilliant! Although I wish she had a cat so I could identify with her even more. Oh, wait. I googled the lyrics and it turns out it's actually "You see all my light/And you love my dark," but I'll never be able to get dog out of my head. And I really like that Maroon 5 song and I thought that the lead singer was pretty cute (like a peppier Chris Martin)— until I saw his Lakers jersey. Ugh.

Come to Papa Tonight's big jokes revolved around overweight kids, hobos and "female problems." The only thing remotely redeeming about this episode w read more

Why Glenn Close Has No Man


Glenn Close says she's nothing like the impeccably clad housefrau she plays in The Stepford Wives (opening tomorrow). In fact, the 57-year-old star's biggest fear is glamming up and dressing to perfection for Hollywood events!

"It is the absolute burden of my existence," Close admits. "It is an absolute horror. When I have to go somewhere it is like, 'What am I going to wear — and who is going to criticize it?' I hate it.

"I'm very bad at shopping, and I don't like spending money on clothes," she adds with a sigh. "I'm very lucky to have designers that will lend me things [or] give a lovely discount, and that's nice. I was not raised [with] shopping as entertainment, so for me, it is absolute agony. I'm very lucky to have people to help me."

A single mother, Close doesn't blame fashion foibles for her lack of a boyfriend. Instead, she feels her strong career choices are the problem. "I realized the other day that I have been in this prof read more

Today, he's even taking over the Internet, visiting TV Guide Online to answer seven of our silliest questions ever. Can the former stand-up's conquest of Paris Hilton, UPN and the world be far behind?

TV Guide Online: Since men are such notorious channel surfers, is The Man Show doomed simply because its title aims to attract this fickle demographic?
Joe Rogan:
We counter that problem by featuring many young girls with bags of saline stuffed into the skin beneath their nipples. I know it sounds weird, but it actually works.

TVGO: Care to address the rumor that you only allow Doug Stanhope to continue on as your co-host because you think he's less handsome than read more
