"I love behind-the-scenes," she said. "I love producing, I love putting things together. We work with the writers to write the content, we book all of the presenters, we book the music, and so then I was like, we've got to get a comedian on this show. And so we got George, who was a natural fit, and it's so fun to play off of him. We're just really good friends."
It's pretty funny, too. On the red carpet, Sidibe said, "I kinda said I'd hit that," referring to Butler, who seemed at a loss for words, but managed to choke out, "I'm here. I'm available."
It was awkward, and continued to be awkward when Aniston and Butler watched it back again like deer caught in the headlights. You've gotta hand it to Sidibe, though, who doesn't shirk from anything. "I like where this is goin'," she said. "Maybe we should get a bottle of champagne and see where the night takes us."

According to the network's press release, the hour-long talk show will cover the day's big entertainment news, offer interviews, in-studio guests, correspondent reports and mix it in with "female-friendly segments" on the latest fashion styles and trends.
What's more, as the title suggests, the show will be broadcast live from its studio in Los Angeles.

The story is still be sorted out, but it seems that Nancy is walking away from the last two years on her contract for a better job somewhere else. Her PR rep said, "[She] has chosen to leave the show after 13 years. ...Even though she will be leaving for a new opportunity, this decision is based totally on Nancy's desire to take her career to the next level and is completely amicable. She will continue on with projects as a broadcast entertainment journalist."
Holmes told 'Access Hollywood' during an event for her "Dizzy Feet" charity that Suri is obsessed with her mommy's shoes. "Like every little girl, she loves my high heels," Holmes said, which prompted her to purchase footwear specially made for her daughter's young feet. "They're actually ballroom dancing shoes for kids. I found them for her, and she loves them," she said.

When asked by Access Hollywood about The Oprah Winfrey Show ending in 2011, Ms. W said, "I'm not done." Well, you sure could have knocked me over with a feather. I mean, really, I understand that it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind, but I really thought Oprah had other worlds to conquer, other fish to fry.
Menounos is also a reporter for NBC Nightly News and can be seen in the summer comedy Tropic Thunder.
Planet Green is a property of Discovery Communications. It is a 24-hour eco-lifestyle network that focuses on conversation and meeting the challenge of protecting our earth.
Hollywood Green with Maria Menounos will air tomorrow at 6 p.m. on Planet Green then move to its regular time at 9 p.m. next week.
First of all, does Billy Bush always wear his hair like that or did he leave his roof down in the convertible with his hair wet and gelled? It looks like a slicked back mullet, and that's not a look just anyone can pull off. In fact, no one can pull off that look. But it may have actually been a better choice than the brown suit. Sadly, though, the suit and hair was the least of the problems with last night's one hour Golden Globe "extravaganza."
TV Week is reporting that NBC Universal Television Distribution has licensed the format of Access Hollywood to a Chinese television network. It is the first time a foreign studio show has been licensed to show in the People's Republic. The show will be called Access Hollywood China; it will be shot and produced in Beijing, and the local content-to-U.S. content ratio will be 70-30. So yes, that means the Chinese might be seeing Billy Bush annoy the hell out of celebrities, but dubbed into Mandarin (or Cantonese if it's being shown in the southern part of the country). The show's big local star? Asian actor and supermodel Hu Bing, whom I was very disappointed to find out was a guy when I Googled his name.
How her return is received will, of course, depend on the story they are telling, but I am surprised that they are bringing her back at all. I was under the impression that most people were ok with being done with Ana Lucia. Are there Lost fans with burning Ana Lucia questions that have to be cleared up?
No word on whether or not the producers popped for a full time driver this time, but one can hope. Lost is scheduled to return from its mid-season break on February 7, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility of that getting bumped up. Week after week of fourth place finishes has a way of shuffling schedules and changing plans.

*UPDATE* Reader A points to the news on the Official Michelle Rodriguez site that says the Acess Hollywood pics are not of her, and she is not currently in Hawaii.
Check out the clips here-- warning: the video is a little jumpy if you use a Mac.
Pop diva Britney Spears wants to assure her adoring fans that everything is just peachy with her marriage to pop diva Kevin Federline, and prove to the world in general that her mothering skills are more than adequate. So, rather than having a press conference on the White House lawn, she is turning to Matt Lauer and NBC's Dateline to set the record straight.
Lauer will sit down with Spears for an interview that will run on Dateline this Thursday. During the conversation he will address tabloid rumors about her crumbling marriage to Federline (she loves him for his simplicity) and her alleged new man (her security guard, she confirms) and the tabloids themselves (she wants to start her own magazine to tell everyone the real story). She will also speak about her son Sean and answer recent questions about the way she handles the baby boy.
Before airing on Dateline, snippets of the interview will air on the NBC-owned entertainment news program Access Hollywood tonight and on the Today show Thursday morning. By Thursday evening we will all be able to get a good night's sleep, full of relief that all of the rumors were fake and all is well in the Spears-Federline household.
