Salma Hayek Talks 'Extra' Snake Scare on 'Late Show'It was the snake scare heard round the world -- well, sort of. Earlier this month Salma Hayek appeared on 'Extra' with 'Grown Ups' costars Maya Rudolph and Maria Bello to talk about the movie.

In the middle of filming, a 5-foot snake slithered toward them. Hayek crawled (in stilettos) onto the arm rests of their chairs and screamed, "Somebody do something!"

"There were like 40 people around us, ... all these tough guys," explained Hayek on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). "They ran! The minute they saw the snake, they were gone. It was coming towards us and her head was up and she was hissing ... The macho man who saved us was Maria's hairdresser."

Did Tiger Woods Have a Son With His Porn Star Mistress? (VIDEO)

Did Tiger Woods Have a Son With His Porn Star Mistress?Did you think that the Tiger Woods scandal was over? Don't worry, it'll never be over. We'll probably all still be talking about this in the year 2025 or something.

The most recent news in the scandal is that porn star Devon James has filed a paternity suit against Tiger, claiming that he's the father of her 9 year-old son, Austin. 'Extra' (weekdays, syndicated) has the scoop. Porn star James is Tiger's semi-official 15th alleged mistress. Fifteen women: that's a lot. Tiger's wife Elin Nordegren refused to answer questions about the possible son, or the paternity suit.

According to James' allegations, Tiger met her before he was married, and has kept the son secret ever since. She is the second woman to accuse the golfer of giving birth to a "love child." In December, mistress Theresa Rogers also said that she gave birth to Tiger's baby -- she claimed that Tiger gave her millions of dollars in order to buy her silence.

But now, Sheridan is claiming that she was physically abused by Marc Cherry, the show's creator. Sheridan says Cherry "forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head," and she now is suing for $20 million.

A 'Laverne and Shirley' Remake for the Big Screen?

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 10th 2010 10:37AM
laverne_and_shirley_bowlingSchlemiel! Schlimazel! Are you ready to see America's most beloved Milwaukee girls on the make on the big screen? According to director Garry Marshall, creator of 'Happy Days,' he has hopes to put the spinoff from that show, the successful 'Laverne & Shirley' to the movies. As with all the other hopes for silver screen adaptations, this one comes with some fanciful casting attached, too.

Garry was on 'Extra' promoting his new romantic comedy 'Valentine's Day' and revealed the 'Laverne & Shirley' dream casting: Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. That's right. This pair of Shotz Brewery factory employees -- who live in a basement apartment in 1960 Milwaukee and struggle to find the men of their dreams -- would be played by two of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Is that a cynical way of looking at it? Yes, it is.

Past Tiger Woods Interviews Take on Whole New Meaning (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 29th 2009 11:04AM
In light of Tiger Woods' admitted infidelity, and claims by at least 14 separate women that they had affairs with him, past interviews in which the pro golfer espoused the virtue of honesty and gushed over his relationship with wife Elin Nordegren take on a whole new ironic meaning.

"Always being honest with yourself at all times can be brutal ... It's nice to be able to go home and just be with somebody. You have your bad days. You have your good days. But we're a team. We're in this together," Woods said of Nordegren during an interview with 'Extra.'

Mario LopezMario Lopez is a busy man.

Between his ongoing hosting duties for 'Extra' and 'America's Best Dance Crew', as well as his recurring guest role as a plastic surgeon on 'Nip/Tuck,' you wouldn't think he'd have enough time to catch his breath, much less use it to give us the inside scoop on all his upcoming projects.

Yet that's just what he did when AOL TV caught up to him recently, telling us all about the 'Saved By the Bell' reunion, the new children's book he co-wrote with his sister and his ongoing search for a new canine friend. So check out what he had to say, but watch out: you may get exhausted just reading about his amazing schedule.

Sacha Baron Cohen disrupts Medium filming

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 17th 2008 7:03PM
BrunoThis is actually kinda funny and I'm surprised no one has attempted this before.

Sacha Baron Cohen, also known as Borat, was somehow cast as an extra for an episode of NBC's Medium, and in typical Borat fashion he disrupted the scene. In fact, he screwed things up so much that the show had to shut down filming for a while on November 7.

Actually, Cohen wasn't Borat in the footage he was Bruno, one of Cohen's other characters.

Mark McGrath to be replaced by Mario Lopez on Extra

mark mcgrath mario lopezWho's ready for a Sugar Ray reunion? Anybody? Hello?

Well, ready or not, you're going to get one. Mark McGrath, the Sugar Ray frontman-turned-entertainment-reporter is leaving Extra. Some reports say he's been fired, but The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that he really just wanted to get back to the band.

McGrath has been on hiatus from Sugar Ray for the past three years as he hosted Extra, but now the band is heading back to the studio and Mario Lopez is stepping up to take his spot behind the anchor desk. Lopez's much lauded muscles are apparently too big to share the stage, though. McGrath's co-host, Dayna Devon, has been demoted to Special Correspondent and backup host for Lopez.

I will always look at Lopez as A.C. Slater, so the idea of him becoming a "journalist" kind of makes me laugh. But then again, it's not like Mark McGrath was exactly the second coming of Cronkite. Besides, anyone who could stand 6 inches away from Miss Teen South Carolina as she rambled on about "The Iraq" without completely losing it obviously has some talent.

The Mole gets a new host

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 31st 2008 4:23PM

Jon KelleyI'm not a big fan of reality shows, but I really did enjoy The Mole. It lasted two seasons on ABC (not counting the truly stupid Celebrity Mole that came later) and was hosted by Anderson Cooper. Cooper, as you know, is busy over on CNN with his own nightly show, Anderson Cooper 360, so ABC needed a new host for the revival that's coming up later in May. And now they've named him.

Jon Kelley will be the new host of The Mole, the man in charge of guiding contestants (and one spy) through an international game of searches, stunts, and elimination. Kelley used to be an anchor for the syndicated celebrity news show Extra and an anchor for Fox Sports Network.

Additional strikes that could happen

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 12th 2007 1:02PM
WGA StrikeI have no evidence that any of the strikes I'm about to mention will actually occur (nor do I have an exact definition of what some of them actually do). It is simply a hypothesis of the effects of such strikes.

One issue with being a television writer is that a writer's contributions are not as tangible as certain other creative roles. Only slightly more visible is the director's role. The most tangible and visible is the actor, who is immediately seen on camera.

Currently, the television writers are on strike. There is a good possibility that the actors will strike next year. But what if other people that work in the television studios went on strike, the ones who are even less visible to the public. I think those would also create problems for the industry in different ways. For example...

American Idol season seven hype begins

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Nov 30th 2007 4:21PM
American Idol JudgesIt's not even December, and American Idol's seventh season is still a month and a half away -- but the hype has already begun. According to an interview with Extra, the American Idol judges - Simon, Paula, and Randy -- are in agreement: This is going to be the BEST SEASON EVER!!

Last year, as you may recall, season six was often slammed by fans and critics as the WORST SEASON EVER. Who could forget Sanjaya? Oh wait, we did. His 15 minutes of fame only lasted 12.5 minutes. But for all of our Sanjaya-bashing, at least he kept things interesting in an otherwise bland and uninspiring year. Seriously, does anyone even care that Jordin Sparks just released her debut album?

Is Simon Cowell quitting American Idol?

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted May 23rd 2007 9:41AM
Simon CowellSure, Simon threatened to quit American Idol if Sanjaya won, but that seemed unlikely to ever happen. Look, even if Sanj did win by some miracle, Simon would have had to fulfill his contract with the show for the next three years. So Simon was never going anywhere. But that doesn't mean he won't quit -- eventually.

In fact, Simon recently announced that after his contract is up he will be moving on from the show that helped make him a super-rich celebrity.

Extra says: Simon didn't say such bad things to Jennifer!

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Mar 6th 2007 2:41PM
Jennifer Hudson is toting around her Oscar. It seems that Extra has done the leg work and taken heed to Jennifer Hudson's suggestion that someone rewind the American Idol tapes, to see all the nasty comments that Simon Cowell had said during her tenure on the show.

So a diligent production assistant in Los Angeles, had collected some footage that seems to show the more supportive side of Simon in this TV's Top 5! moment.
