When Bush tried to bring up the controversial "g" word (graduation), McHale quickly replied, "We don't talk about that." But he did.

Bush then asked the actor what grade his character was in. "Right now I'm a junior, but we'll see," said McHale. It turns out that McHale had no idea what grade Artie was in until he was given the script.

Carrie Ann Inaba Defends 'Dancing' Judges and Talks About Chaz's Elimination (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Oct 26th 2011 5:15PM
As things heat up in the evening on 'Dancing With the Stars,' 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) has become a place for the judges to say their peace the morning after. Yesterday Len Goodman addressed Maks' request for him to retire, and today Carrie Ann Inaba talked about Chaz Bono's elimination while defending the judge's ability to remain impartial.

After getting eliminated, Chaz had some catty words for the judges. "I didn't really ever say hello to them so there's not really much of a need to say goodbye." He also said that he felt a bias against him throughout the show, even though he made it to week 6 with minimal dancing skills.

Inaba defended Chaz's elimination, saying, "I commended Chaz on what he was doing, because what he was doing is very important in the larger scope of life. But the scoring has to do with what they're doing dance-wise. We are able to separate the two," she said.

Everyone's buzzing about the feud that erupted between Maks Chmerkovskiy and 'Dancing With the Stars' judge Len Goodman when Maks forcefully pushed back against Goodman's critique of his latest dance with Hope Solo.

Goodman stopped by 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to offer his perspective on the argument. "How often, in the heat of the moment, we say things that the next day we think 'why did I say that?'" he asked. "Maks is going through that right now."

Goodman isn't taking the back-and-forth personally, though. "I like Maks, we're good buddies, we play golf together," Goodman noted, before taking a jab at Maks' golf-swing. He then further clarified the judges' role on 'DWTS.' "What they've got to understand is ... they're on trial, and we're the judges. You can't be a judge at your own trial," Goodman said.

Walsh went on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to talk about the new developments, but remained cagey about the looming love triangle. "We want that to happen for your character ... he offered you a baby," Kit Hoover said. "Well, he is an IVF specialist ... how convenient for us," Walsh said.

"Everyone looks at me now and they say, 'he's doing so well, he's so positive and always smiling,' but they see a somewhat the finished product. A lot of people don't know about the regret, the anger, depression, and the 33 surgeries I went through," Martinez said. Explaining his tears, he said, "For me, it was sad to remember those days, but at the same time, it was tears of joy to be proud of how far I've come."

"I'm super careful," she said. "But I asked, because I'm on the new Aaron Sorkin show for HBO and I asked Aaron, 'Am I allowed to ride motorcycles or do you guys have in my contract that I can't?' And he said, 'Oh, you can ride them, but if you get hurt, we can fire you.'"

Jay Mohr takes a shot at Billy Bush on 'Access Hollywood Live'If you're going to take a shot at Jay Mohr, don't do it while he's sitting less than an arm's length away from you. Billy Bush learned that Wednesday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) when he talked about seeing Mohr appear on 'The View' in a yellow shirt that made him look "like a Peep," one of those little marshmallow confections that pop up around Easter. Mohr got gave Bush a shot to the groin after that jab.

Mohr was on 'Access' to promote his new show, 'Master Debaters,' a guy-oriented talk show. They showed a clip of Mohr disparaging Jennifer Aniston, and Bush said he shouldn't have picked on her. "Why not?" said Mohr. "She was mean to me. She made me cry." That was in 'Picture Perfect,' and, Bush pointed out, it was only a movie. "Not in between takes when she says, 'Six guys they screen-tested, the one guy I hate, he's the one they hired,'" Mohr said.

That's when Bush made his "Peep" comment, and Mohr gave him a shot under the table. The crew managed to isolate the shot from another camera angle, and replayed it as if it were a questionable touchdown. Which, in a way, it was.

Thursday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), Bush did his best impression of 'The Chaz,' and he and Kit Hoover got ready for the new 'Dancing' season by speaking with Valentin Chmerkovskiy, who's paired with Elisabetta Canalis in the competition.

Hoover wanted to know if the uncomfortable, often revealing costumes made it difficult to focus. "Sometimes it can get a little difficult to focus but honestly, it's more difficult to focus for her," he said, referring to his partner. His brother Maksim is also a staple of the show, but has never won. Which means there's a little more on the line for Valentin. "We have a lot of family back home, I have to redeem our name a little bit," he said.
