Rita Moreno Talks About Her Famous Flings on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 18th 2011 7:00AM
Rita Moreno on 'The Talk'Rita Moreno is what Tracy Jordan would call an "EGOT," having won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony in her career, which started when she lent her voice to Spanish language versions of English language films at age 11. She is now 79, and has had her share of romantic involvements in Hollywood, which she detailed Friday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS).

As the hosts tossed out names to her, she gave descriptions of her former co-stars, flings, and lovers. Morgan Freeman was "monumental and so sexy." Jack Nicholson was a "dirty, dirty boy." She dated Marlon Brando for more than six years, but went mum on details about him. She did try to make Brando jealous at one point by dating Elvis Presley, whom she called "beautiful but boring."

According to Moreno, the ploy worked, and "it made Marlon cah-razy," which impressed the audience and the hosts. "You are a spicy little thing, Rita Moreno," said Holly Robinson Peete.

With 113 hit tunes to Presley's 108, the the hit Fox show now officially has the most singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

According to Billboard, the six new tunes on Thursday's chart bring the 'Glee' gang above the King, as well as other musical luminaries like James Brown, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and The Beatles. The first 'Glee' entry on the chart came less than two years ago when 'Don't Stop Believin'' landed at number 4 in June 2009.

The only modern acts to come close to 'Glee''s record are Lil Wayne and Jay-Z, who have 67 and 62 entries, respectively.

Tim McGraw Learns His Ancestor Migrated with Elvis Presley's Family (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Feb 14th 2011 7:10AM
Tim McGraw on 'Who Do You Think You Are'Tim McGraw -- who grew up poor in Louisiana, sold all his possessions and headed to Nashville for a new life -- discovered one of his German ancestors did a similar thing -- many, many generations before him.

On 'Who Do You Think You Are?' (Fri., 8PM ET on NBC), the country music star learned that his eighth great-grandfather, Johan Jost Hayd, emigrated to America at age 24 and worked hard for a better quality of life, first for the British Navy and then as a farmer. Eventually he became one of the largest landowners in Virginia at the time.

The geneagoly expert had more news: A family by the name of "Preslar" was in Hayd's migration group. The last name was later changed to "Presley" -- as in Elvis. "His ancestors were traveling with your ancestors to America," the expert told McGraw. The singer chuckled and said, "Maybe they were jammin' [together], you know, on the boat on the way over!"

'Dancing with the Stars' - 'Performance #6: Results' Recap

by Michael Pascua, posted May 5th 2010 2:00AM
Karina Smirnoff and Louis Van Amstel dance to Train's 'Drops of Jupiter' on the 'DWTS' week 6 results show(S10E13) Last night's 'Dancing with the Stars' provided several of the celebrities' personal best scores including the first 30 of the season. The group dances forced the scores closer to each other.

The results begin and I'm taken aback to Brooke Burke looking like a poor man's Carmen Electra tonight. We start off immediately with Nicole & Derek and Erin & Maks. While Nicole & Derek are safe, Erin & Maks are in the dreaded bottom two.

Len's recap basically hyped how much he thought the episode went. It was because after Jake's elimination the dead weight is gone. It turns out that Nicole's dress was stuck when she did her low spin and landed on her bum thus causing the giggle moment I complained about last night.

Sarah Silverman's Bedwetting Incident is Averted by Elvis (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 29th 2010 4:00PM
Sarah Silverman shared the story of how she wet her bed during a birthday sleepover at age six on 'The Rachael Ray Show' (weekdays, syndicated). However, she was spared the embarrassment of being revealed as a bedwetter by the untimely death of none other than Elvis Presley.

Silverman said that the birthday girl's mother became enraged when she discovered her soiled clothes. But, just at that moment, news of Presley's death saved her. "And before I could say anything, or not say anything, the birthday girl's father walked in and said, 'Elvis Presley just died!' And it took all the heat off of me," Silverman said.

David Duchovny Puts Jay Leno on the Spot (VIDEO)

David Duchovny Puts Jay Leno on the SpotActor David Duchovny is apparently not a big Elvis Presley fan, because he recently avoided going on a trip to Graceland. In fact, Duchovny is dismissive of Elvis, and of the whole Graceland concept. "[It's] like Legoland... for a music that I'm not in love with." Unfortunately, Duchovny made this statement as a guest on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). And Jay Leno is a huge Elvis fan. And so, Duchovny's casual remark started a long debate.

'Elvis' - DVD Review

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 2nd 2010 3:03PM
The cover of the Elvis Movie DVDMy eyes didn't see this movie when it came out since they weren't even a fully functioning organism until a year after it hits the airwaves. But my brain carries a fleeting memory of a syndicated run of John Carpenter's TV movie about the King of Rock 'n Roll.

I only saw one brief scene, but I remember thinking that this must have been a theatrically released movie because it felt like one. Back in the 80's, it was hard not to be able to tell the difference between a melodramatic TV mini-series and an honest and bracing biopic even if my TV diet consisted mostly of 'The Real Ghostbusters' and game shows that forced kids to dive in slop for a trip to Universal Studios.

Now almost fifteen years after that brief moment and more than 30 years after the TV movie told the life story of the King just a few years after his untimely passing, 'Elvis' returns to a TV near you in the form of a new DVD.

Happy Birthday Elvis!

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 8th 2010 2:30PM
Today would have been Elvis Presley's 75th birthday. Here's video of his first performance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1956, singing one of my favorite Elvis songs, "Don't Be Cruel." Interestingly, Ed Sullivan didn't even host this episode, it was guest hosted by Charles Laughton.

Elvis isn't shown from the waist down here (except for when he walks out at the start), but that wasn't because of censorship. That didn't happen until this third and final appearance, in 1957. That's after the jump.

Elvis 75th Birthday Movie Marathon (6:15AM, TCM)
Bust out the fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, because it's Elvis Presley's 75th birthday -- a day worth celebrating, even if you don't believe The King is still alive and hanging out at a truck stop in Michigan. And though his movie career took a back seat to his legendary music career, this all-day lineup of Elvis flicks makes for fun viewing. Among the highlights: 'Spinout' (9:30AM) -- Elvis is a race car driver wooing Shelley Fabares!; 'Speedway' (2:45PM) -- Elvis is a race car driver wooing Nancy Sinatra!; 'Blue Hawaii' (4:30PM) -- Elvis as a rich playboy frolicking in Hawaii!; 'Viva Las Vegas' (6:15PM) -- Elvis is a race car driver wooing Ann-Margret!; 'Elvis: That's the Way It Is 2001' (10PM) -- Elvis in concert in Vegas!; and 'Jailhouse Rock' (midnight) -- Elvis as a convict who becomes a rock star! Thank you, TCM, thankyouverymuch.

ABC drops Adam Lambert again and again

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 3rd 2009 11:28AM
adam_lambert_sittingWhen Adam Lambert was competing on American Idol, there were times when his performances reminded the judges -- and viewers -- of Elvis Presley. And other rock icons, too. It was all part of Adam's appeal. But now that he's promoting his new CD and did a "scandalous" performance at the American Music Awards, he's really getting the Elvis treatment. There's fear that his actions, which are more graphic than anything Elvis ever did, will go too far.

Today, Adam tweeted that ABC had cancelled two more spots on the network -- his upcoming Jimmy Kimmel Live! date and a New Year's Eve performance. Adam added that nobody should blame ABC for the cancellations because it was pressure from the FCC that prompted ABC's action. So maybe we should really be blaming Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake for the infamous Super Bowl breast/costume malfunction? ABC previously dumped Adam from Good Morning America.

Jason Lee to sing the Delta Blues

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 18th 2009 4:04PM
Jason LeeWhen I first heard the plot of the new TNT drama pilot that George Clooney is producing, Delta Blues, I thought it might be funny at first but way too odd to watch for several episodes. It's about George Hendricks, a Memphis police officer who lives with his mom and is also a part-time Elvis Presley impersonator (I'm going to assume that he doesn't dress up as Elvis while he's on duty or this show will go be way into the red zone of the QUIRKY meter).

Well, at least they grabbed someone good for the role. My Name Is Earl's Jason Lee is going to play the lead character, and I can definitely picture that. Now I just wonder if he's going to dress up as younger, thinner Elvis (circa 1959) or older, wider Elvis (circa 1975).

The pilot will be directed by Clark Johnson, who worked on The Shield.
