Debbie Reynolds

Sasha Mallory & Alexander Fost, 'So You Think You Can Dance'When dance is amazing, it transcends the technique and becomes a thing of emotion. It can move you. The beauty of the level of talent required to be on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) is that you have the talent level required to move beyond the choreography into art.

Whereas many dance shows leave you impressed with their style or technique, 'SYTYCD' often pushes us beyond words. Tonight's judging panel featured the legendary Debbie Reynolds, and she was privileged to witness just such a moment.

The Nappytabs hip-hop routine performed by Sasha Mallory and Alexander Fost moved both Reynolds and Mary Murphy to tears. Napoleon and Tabitha D'umo have proven themselves masters at telling moving stories through movement, and this one touched particularly close to home, dealing with soldiers deployed overseas.

Debbie Reynolds on 'The View'Debbie Reynolds has never been shy talking about her relationship with Eddie Fisher and Elizabeth Taylor, a trend that continued today on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC). For the uninitiated, Fisher divorced Reynolds to marry Taylor, but Reynolds said they remained friends. In fact, she sounded downright blasé about the whole thing.

"These things happen," said Reynolds. "Best friends should stick together."

Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher Give Tiny Glimpse of Their Family Dysfunction on 'Oprah' (VIDEO)

Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher on 'Oprah'Debbie Reynolds was still married to Eddie Fisher when Fisher and Elizabeth Taylor first got together. Reynolds' daughter Carrie Fisher has talked about the relationship in her one-woman show, 'Wishful Drinking,' and Tuesday on 'Oprah' (Weekdays, Syndicated), Reynolds addressed an even more personal question.

Oprah showed a clip of 'Drinking' where Carrie said that her father had consoled Taylor in a variety of ways. "He consoled her with flowers," said Carrie in the clip, "and ultimately, he consoled her with his penis."

When they came back from the clip, Reynolds, sitting next to her daughter, held up her thumb and forefinger to indicate a measurement less than flattering to Eddie Fisher. As the audience laughed, she stopped and demurely padded her hair.

"So you're saying there wasn't much consolation there," joked Oprah.

Wings season 6"Deedee Chappel. Get ready to unzip your pants!" - Lowell

That's one of my favorite lines in TV history, and I'm happy to say it was uttered in a show I had the pleasure of being an extra in many years ago, NBC's Wings. A great friend of mine, Suzanne, worked on the show and, since I was going out to Los Angeles for a vacation, she got me on the set as an extra. The episode was titled "If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother" and guest-starred Debbie Reynolds. It was filmed in October of 1994 and aired on November 22.

TV's Wyatt Earp gets married for the first time... at 81

High O'Brian as Wyatt EarpIf you think you're going to be perpetually single, that you're too old to get married for the first time, Hugh O'Brian should be your hero. The 81-year-old actor, who is best known for starring in the 1955-61 series The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp got married to his longime girlfriend, 54-year-old Virginia Barber, on Sunday. This was Barber's second marriage and O'Brian's first. You read that right, my friends. O'Brian held out all the way to 81 before breaking down. In honor of the occasion, the ceremony was titled "A Wedding to Die For."

The ceremony itself was interesting: Adhering to the morbid theme, it was held in a cemetary. Among the 300 attendees were look-alikes of deceased notables Elvis Presley and Pope John Paul II. Debbie Reynolds (not a look-alike; she's still with us) sang, and the ceremony was conducted by the Rev. Robert Schuller, pastor of the Crystal Cathedral. Wow. I know people sometimes say that after you get married, a little part of you dies, but this is ridiculous.
