Fox may not be able to produce a sequel to its reality phenom Joe Millionaire — the secret being out and all — but we still have to wonder: What if the network reversed the genders and next recruited 20 gold-diggin' studs to drool over a well-to-do Princess Charming? Would viewers find a Jane Millionaire as richly rewarding?
"No," theorizes Evan Marriott, the 28-year-old construction worker at the center of the $50 million big white lie, in an interview with TV Guide Online. "I don't think women are portrayed as breadwinners in America. I think it's an old-fashioned reality that men are the breadwinners."
That said, Marriott believes a female-driven Millionaire would work if producers dangled a different booty in front of her male suitors. "They ought to call it Jane Big Boobs," he suggests with a grin. "They get a woman with big, fake boobs, have all these guys go after her, and then, in the end, she takes them off a
Today, New Wave hitmakers Berlin are fondly remembered for whizz-bang synth-pop chart-toppers like "No More Words" and the Top Gun love theme "Take My Breath Away." But back in the 1980s, the group was as widely recognized for lead singer Terri Nunn's wild mane as her powerful voice.
Shortly after MTV made a visual medium of music, the sometime actress perfected the look that would become her trademark: black-tipped platinum-blonde locks. "The black-and-white [style] was really cool — until my hair gave out on me and said '[Bleep] you!' and fell out," she tells TV Guide Online with a laugh. "It couldn't take all that bleach anymore.
"But in the beginning, wow, what great hair that was," she continues. "It was so easy 'cause my hair hung straight. It had no body to it, so it was the perfect style for me. Let it hang, give it a blunt cut, and stick black on the end of it. It was perfect."
A whole lot of people watched Simon Cowell call Christina Aguilera a slut last night on American Idol. The show's second season premiere averaged a staggering 26.5 million viewers, giving Fox its biggest non-sports night in history.
Disc jockey Fatboy Slim and wife Zoe Ball have separated after three years of marriage... Sunday's Golden Globe Awards on NBC averaged 20 million viewers, the smallest turnout for the show in six years.
Ever notice what a baby crazy show CBS's Presidio Med is? All these miscarriages, fertility woes and preemie-in-crisis plots! These folks practically make Lifetime's programming look butch. One intriguing storyline was the science-nerdy flirtation of Dr. Jules Keating ( Julianne Nicholson) and Dr. Matt Slingerland ( Paul Blackthorne). She asked him to sire her a child — via in vitro fertilization — and he agreed to share his seed, since he had a big crush on Jules. Then, although pregnant with possibility, this story was dropped. What's up with the baby-making plan?
"I think that's still in the pipeline, so to speak," Blackthorne quips to TV Guide Online. "I think we'll just have to see what happens. I'm not too sure just yet. But I'
Fox's Joe Millionaire is unstoppable. Monday's episode attracted its largest audience to date (nearly 19 million viewers) and was up 5 percent week-to-week in adults 18-49.
Potty-mouthed actress Selma Blair — who currently co-stars in A Guy Thing — has an announcement to make. "I've turned over a new leaf, boys and girls," she grins. "I no longer swear. I put an end to that. After A Guy Thing, I read in The National Enquirer that I made everyone [on the set] upset with my longshoreman behavior, and that really saddened me. So I haven't sworn since!"
Apparently, Blair got hyper on Kit Kat bars between scenes, then took to doing Mary Lou Retton-style gymnastics around the set! "The first couple of weeks, they can't understand why Selma's crazy," she recalls. "I can't eat sugar and they all can, and you can't hold that against me. So it was actually a rule: 'No sugar for Selma.'"

Make room for Daddy! Now that the WB has decided to give Gilmore Girls hottie Milo Ventimiglia his own spinoff, the search is on for a mature looker to play the estranged father of his character, rebellious teen toughie Jess. While the network's taste in baby-faced heartthrobs is unimpeachable — the frog channel has introduced us to a host of prime-time princes, from James Van Der Beek and Scott Speedman to Jason Behr and Chad Michael Murray — when it comes to fathers, we think we kno
