by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 8th 2011 6:30AM
'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.

Gilles Marini Owes Acting Career to Will Smith (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 12th 2010 4:30PM
Actor and 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant Gilles Marini told Bonnie Hunt that he owes his career to none other than Will Smith, who he encountered in a hotel restaurant while working as a waiter. Smith, who was in town at the time training for 'Ail,' encouraged Marini to pursue his dream of acting, he said on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

"He gave me a boost. [He said], 'If you dream of something ... Los Angeles is the right place to go.' And, I thought, 'Hey, why not?' I just moved out and now it's history. I guess it worked out," Marini said.

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.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 10 Results

by Michael Pascua, posted May 13th 2009 12:32AM
Ty Murray(S08E19) I normally have the opportunity to watch Dancing with the Stars in high definition, but this week's results show I watched from the 4:3 resolution. I have to admit, this show needs the extra sides of frame for HD. There is a degree of beauty missing from the show.

One thing I forgot to mention about Melissa's performance last night was that she got an unlucky draw. I find it unfair to have the Cha-Cha near the end of the season since it lacks the flair of the Salsa and Samba, or the passion of the Paso Doble. I gave her some credit for doing as well as she could, but she lacked the passion.

It turns out that Afton was cursed. Everyone that Afton touched, including herself, got eliminated. More about the professional competition and the elimination after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 10

Melissa Rycroft on Dancing with the Stars(S08E18) Tonight's episode didn't have to be two hours. I already suffered from watching a three-hour finale of The Celebrity Apprentice, and when I saw the show start with a professional group dance, I knew this episode was going to be padded. That three-minute buffer of dancing could be worse; Samantha Harris could have tried to interview the celebrities for three minutes.

I caught Samantha Harris this afternoon on the syndicated version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, covering for Meredith Vieira, and she was a little better on that show. I have to think that she just can't roll with the punches as well as Tom Bergeron. Her flaws really kicked in tonight as she fumbled through the whole show. Can't we have a contest to find a new co-host?

Dancing with the Stars: Week 9

by Michael Pascua, posted May 5th 2009 12:23AM
Shawn Johnson on Dancing with the Stars(S08E16) Tonight we found out how badly Melissa's injury affected her: not at all. If anything, the injury made her work harder. We're provided with two dances per celebrity tonight (one ballroom, one Latin), and even though the show could be accomplished in an hour and a half, we're given another half hour of padding.

We start the night with a professional group dance demonstrating ballroom. The best part of the professional dance was that there was an audience shot right after, and no one looked impressed. After ten minutes of padding we start the night with Shawn Johnson.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 8

Gilles drops Cheryl BurkeThere was something wrong about this week's Dancing with the Stars: everyone who performed did well. If it weren't for Melissa hurting her rib last week (which I predicted would become a problem), the show would have actually been a close race. The paranoia of the news got me wondering about Melissa's disappearance; for a quick second I thought she had contracted the swine flu. Thankfully, it was just her rib.

Is it me or is Bruno not making any sense this season? He creates any excuse to get up, flail his arms into Len, and scream nonsensical phrases. The problem is that I think Carrie Ann is catching the Bruno flu.

Chuck and Julianne plagiarize their samba(S08E12) After getting rid of Steve-O, mysteriously everyone got better. The average tonight was 26. There were some definite standouts.

We are reminded that the clothes were created by the contestants. I'm happy to see Edyta with clothes on, but I'm a little saddened that there was no denim for Ty. Unfortunately, Samantha was channeling Pollyanna and I was expecting her to have a milk bucket ready for her daily chores. Take a tip from Cat Deeley and find a hip stylist. Speaking of which, more So You Think You Can Dance references after the jump.
