'Hot in Cleveland' - 'Beards'It was a guest-star-studded cruise on 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) as the girls joined Victoria on a gay cruise. With Joy still playing along as Victoria's spouse, Melanie was left to pair up with Elka when she found herself having to pretend she was gay as well.

It all happened rather suddenly, when Melanie found that her sister Caroline (Laura San Giacomo) was on the cruise with her girlfriend (Sandra Bernhard). When Caroline suddenly felt she had something in common with Melanie, Melanie couldn't bring herself to tell the truth.

Gilles Marini Talks About His 'Hot in Cleveland' Guest Spot (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 7th 2011 6:00PM
Gilles Marini came by 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) to preview his 'Hot in Cleveland' guest-spot, in which he plays the captain of a gay cruise ship. But before he could get to that, Dorothy Lucey wanted to talk about Marini's recent guest spot on 'Modern Family, where Claire mistook him for being gay. "I was kind of metrosexual all the way until the end, where there's a big surprise," he explained.

Marini told a story about forgetting his lines while shooting a 'Cleveland' scene with Betty White. When he blanked on the dialogue, she quickly quipped, "Who cares when you look like that?" After that, he felt right back in his comfort zone. "It was actually a great experience," he said.

Claire's Date for the Night Isn't As Gay As She Thought on 'Modern Family' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 20th 2011 12:45AM
Gilles Marini, 'Modern Family' - 'Go Bullfrogs!'Gilles Marini stopped by 'Modern Family' (Wed., 9PM ET on ABC), where apparently everyone thought he was gay. We loved that his reply was, "I'm not gay. I'm French." As if that explains the mix-up.

When Claire got a rare night to herself, she wanted to tap into her high school wild child, and this French gay guy proved to be just the ticket when Cam and Mitchell were revealed to be old ladies who wanted to be home and in bed before 10 o'clock.

But when she went to drop off Luke's retainer where he was spending the night, she was caught by the other moms she'd ditched to go and be wild. It didn't help that her not-gay companion for the night came running up as she was trying to talk her way out of it.

Review: Nip/Tuck - Alexis Stone II

(S06E07) "That's why we need to play dirty." - Sean

Gotta give credit where credit is due -- despite the fact that Teddy's story was so poorly wrapped up, Ryan Murphy and Co. crafted a helluva one-two punch to make us forget about it. At first, I was a little disappointed with the return of Erica last week, but it turned into what's arguably been the best arc of the season. If this ends up being the last time we see Vanessa Redgrave on Nip/Tuck, at least she went out with a bang.

Dancing with the Stars: The Finale

by Michael Pascua, posted May 20th 2009 1:02AM
dancing with the stars finale(S08E21) The night started with a grand swoop of the set, something I wished that would be used more often. Unfortunately, the episode really dragged on until the last hour. I guess I'm now prepared for the long results show for American Idol tomorrow.

I get to make my final jab at Samantha Harris for the season: someone has to fire her stylist. That dress was ugly.

The outcome was a little bit of a shock, but I would appreciate a win from any of the three contestants. We start (and end) the night with Lady GaGa, and she didn't do half bad.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 11

by Michael Pascua, posted May 19th 2009 12:38AM
Dancing with the StarsWe're finally at the end of the season with the three strongest dancers. After ten weeks, I have no clue how Belinda Carlisle did back in week one. At this point, you could tell me that Nancy O'Dell was eliminated in week two and I would believe you. The mirror ball trophy was placed in front of the judges table and the judges seem excited about the competition. Unfortunately, we got some more disappointing freestyle performances.

The interesting thing about the three competitors is that their strengths are in different categories. Shawn is probably the quickest learner and can technically perform. Gilles is best with Latin, and Melissa is best with Ballroom. Melissa probably has the biggest hill to climb, coming from third place and stuck with a Latin performance.
