Jane Lynch Enters the Dating Game

Jane Lynch, Lovespring International

Who put the overly amorous boss from The 40 Year Old Virgin in charge of a dating service?! Part of the credit goes to Will & Grace's Eric McCormack, one of the executive producers of the Lifetime series Lovespring International (premiering tonight at 11 pm/ET). In this improv comedy, Jane Lynch plays Victoria, the head of an "elite Beverly Hills" dating service... based out of Tarzana, California... whose staffers are as pathetic as its pretend pedigree. At the read more

Do you think Mischa Barton ...

Question: Do you think Mischa Barton spilling the beans to Access Hollywood was all a big hoax, and Marissa isn't really dead?


Answer: Considering that Fox ripped Barton's publicist a new one immediately after Access Hollywood released that damaging press release, I'm guessing not. (Oh, how I would've loved to have listened in on those phone calls.) Her rep is spinning it that Barton was under the impression Access wasn't running the story until Friday — after the finale aired — but I'm not buying it. Barton royally frakked up, plain and simple.  Also, if you read my Q&A with Josh Schwartz last week, you can tell that he was pretty pissed off that the big secret got out read more

The Office Goes for the Gold Again

Little does The Office's Jim realize, he'll soon have a drunk Pam to deal with in "The Dundies."

Tonight's episode of The Office [9:30 pm/ET on NBC] is a rerun of one of my favorites of the season — "The Dundies." I get a lot of letters about the Dundies. It's a big episode for Pam. In this episode, Michael hosts the annual Dunder-Mifflin Awards, affectionately referred to as "the Dundies." Michael makes up awards for each person in the office and then stages a huge presentation at a local Chili's. He serves as the master of ceremonies, which is really an opportunity for him to tell bad jokes and sing songs. Dwight is his DJ and sound-effects specialist. After Pam gets in a huge fight with Roy just before the awards begin, she joins Jim inside and gets drunk. I got to do a lot of physical comedy in this episode. I fall down. I give read more

WHO'S ZOOMING WHO?

The New York Daily News reports that Teri Hatcher, who just the other day told Access Hollywood that she is not involved with Ryan Seacrest, was spied dining with the American Idol host on Monday.... US Weekly says David Spade has been helping Heather Locklear get over her split from Richie Sambora.... Anna Benson has withdrawn her petition for a divorce from Orioles pitcher Kris Benson. In court papers filed last week, the pinup said their seven-year marriage had been "irretrievably broken." She has since apparently consulted a dictionary. read more

THE TALK OF THE TOWN

According to Reuters and the Hollywood Reporter, NBC is quietly working with Access Hollywood chatterbox Tony Potts on a "highly energized new daytime show live with a studio audience." Good, because frankly, I'm sick of those low-energy talk shows whose studio audiences are dead. The proposed program would also feature beaucoup interactive elements designed to make the network scads more dough... I mean, designed to bring the action even closer to viewers. read more

KAPLAN OK'S KOTTER

Responding to the news that a big-screen version of Welcome Back, Kotter is in the works — with Ice Cube in the title role and the locale switched to South Central L.A. — Gabe Kaplan told Access Hollywood, "It's totally acceptable. I think it could work and I think [Ice Cube] is the perfect guy." Asked to flesh out the cast, Kaplan suggested "Snoop Dogg will play Horshack and Vanilla Ice would play Barbarino." read more

BRITNEY SAYS "OOPS"

Britney Spears has owned up to ill-advisedly driving her SUV with her 4-month-old son, Sean Preston, sitting in her lap, as seen in photos that surfaced earlier this week. "I made a mistake and so it is what it is, I guess," Spears said in a Thursday Access Hollywood interview. Although Spears' home was paid a visit by a Los Angeles County sheriff (on behalf of the Department of Child and Family Services), authorities say they will not be pursuing any charges. There's a moral here... nowhere. read more
