Kristin ChenowethKristin Chenoweth is probably best-known to TV audiences for her hilarious guest-star spots on 'Glee,' playing the alcoholic high school dropout April Rhodes. But come midseason she'll be hitting the small screen with a starring role in ABC's new Bible Belt comedy, 'Good Christian Belles.'

The Tony-winning Broadway star ('Wicked') also has a successful recording career, and has been out on the interview circuit lately to promote her latest album, 'Some Lessons Learned,' which is where she's courted controversy in some circles by confirming that her staunch Christian beliefs are not at odds with her support for the gay community.

In an interview with 'The Advocate' Chenoweth says that people are born gay or straight, just like they're either tall or short, and that it's not a choice. In response to a question about people who cite Christinaity as justification for passing discriminatory laws, she said "I would ask, 'What would Jesus do?'"

Even as states and jurisdictions made gay and lesbian marriages legal, 'The Newlywed Game' has played it straight - until now.

The long-running game show, now on the GSN cable network, said Wednesday it will feature its first gay couple this season on a celebrity edition. George Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on 'Star Trek,' will appear with his partner, Brad Altman.

They just celebrated their first anniversary after being married in Los Angeles last September, but they're nothing like the giggly young couples the game is known for. Takei and Altman have been together for 22 years.
