Leah Remini, Duff Goldman, and Holly Robinson Peete make up after a food fight on 'The Talk'Bananas Foster is tasty, and its ingredients are surprisingly easy to throw. That's what Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, and chef Duff Goldman (from 'Ace of Cakes') found out on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) during a segment that was supposed to be about cooking. Or at least assembling deserts. But it quickly became more about disassembling deserts when Goldman started sprinkling some of the ingredients on Remini's head.

Remini wasn't having it. "You know what?" she said, turning to Peete, who was holding a frosting sleeve. "Don't play with me." Remini squeezed the sleeve to shoot whipped cream at Goldman. Then the whipped cream and bananas started flying everywhere as the trio declared war, and an honest to goodness food fight broke out.

Lisa Kudrow on 'The Talk'Before she had a hit show of her own with 'King of Queens,' Leah Remini did a guest spot on the first season of 'Friends.' She had fond memoires of the appearance, and got the chance to reminisce about it with Lisa Kudrow on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS).

Remini thought the cast was great, and they apparently enjoyed her, too. "Usually when you're stars like that at a top ten show, immediately number one, you know, you figure, they're all going to be jerks," said Remini. "They were the nicest cast. Like, every guest star that came on the show, they were like, come sit with us. They were the sweetest, most generous cast."

The Women of 'The Talk' Debate Male Birth Control and Celibacy (VIDEO)

Leah Remini talks male birth control on 'The Talk'With a male birth control pill reportedly well on its way to market, the women of 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) discussed whether they'd trust men to use it properly, and what the future would look like with more male options for birth control. What they foresaw was not pretty.

On the question of whether she would trust her man to take a daily birth control pill, Leah Remini gave a resounding "Hells no," adding, "I can just see our husbands with the little packet going, 'Uh, okay, missed, missed, missed, uh ... Dude, do we take 29 at the same time?'" Sharon Osbourne also thought less condom use could bring disgusting results. "Everybody would be covered, covered in herpes," she said.

The conversation then turned to celibacy, more specifically, women who have decided not to have sex. "The person really annoys me who says, I won't have sex, but I will do this, this, and this," said Remini. Holly Robinson Peete thought there were good reasons to have sex before marrying a partner. "How do you know if the guy is going to be delivering the goods if you don't take a test drive?" she said. Ladies just might want to check the guy's packet first.

Clay Aiken's Son Won't Let Him Sing in the House (VIDEO)

Clay Aiken says his son doesn't like ot hear him sing on 'The Talk'Enough people liked Clay Aiken's singing in 2003 to make him the runner up on 'American Idol.' If his son Parker had been born then, it sounds like he would have voted for Ruben Studdard. Aiken said Monday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, Syndicated on CBS) that Parker, who turns three in August, doesn't like it when his dad sings around the house. And it kind of hurts his feelings.

"If I sing in the house he gets upset and tells me to be quiet," said Aiken. "Or if I sing along with the TV, 'Don't sing.'" The odd part is, when they get into the car, Parker loves to hear his dad's CD. "Which is so much more miserable for me," said Aiken. "I would rather sing than have to hear myself. I don't want to listen to myself. But he's very insistent, so I listen to myself a lot more in the car than I care to."

Cedric the Entertainer Previews New 'It's Worth What?' Game Show on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

Cedric the Entertainer previews 'It's Worth What?' on 'The Talk'Anyone wondering what Cedric the Entertainer's new game show 'It's Worth What?' will actually look like got a preview Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Cedric gave the ladies a preview, challenging them to guess the prices of several items that could either be junk or expensive antiques.

Cedric had with him two items -- a black velvet and white taffeta gown once worn by Princess Diana for a charity event in 1985, and an acoustic guitar signed by Elvis Presley. The hosts were charged with figuring out which item was worth more. Leah Remini was the tie-breaker, and went with the guitar.

The signed guitar was worth $30,000, a lot of money to be sure. But the dress was worth twice as much. Sharon Osbourne, who had voted for the dress, was not happy. Hopefully the contestants on Tuesday's 'Worth What?' premiere will be less contentious.

Kathy Griffin and the Women of 'The Talk' Discuss Their Pink Buttons (VIDEO)

Kathy Griffin points to her 'Pink Button' on 'The Talk'And now to test the limits of our euphemistic abilities, a clip of Kathy Griffin and the women of 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) talking about "My New Pink Button." This is, in Julie Chen's words, "a cosmetic dye that temporarily restores color to your genital area." At least, that's where the discussion started, and it drifted into more questionable territory from there.

Griffin imagined the impressive application of such a product. "You're taking your clothes off and he's like, what, it just keeps getting better, and you're like, 'Check this out,'" she said. Leah Remini said Pink Button could be useful to some women, but wouldn't maybe not her, specifically. "Some stuff can look like it was in a small house fire," she said. As the audience began to woo and laugh, she quickly added, "I'm not saying mine."

Getting even more personal, as is her wont, Griffin revealed her nickname for her happy lady part. "I call her 'Little Kathy,'" she said, "and she's always in a good mood and she goes, 'Hi, come on in!'"

Ray Romano Weighs In on 'The Talk's' Hose vs. No Hose Debate (VIDEO)

The pantyhose question answered on 'The Talk'Future audience members of 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), take note. If Julie Chen decides to show off her hose-clad legs, do not whistle, or you may be subjected to Leah Remini's granny panties dance. That was the scene Wednesday with guest Ray Romano, when Remini responded to an audience member's enthusiastic holler by de-hosing Chen.

Remini explained that the man in the audience was probably picturing thigh-high stockings, not the more full-figured version, and he certainly hadn't had to witness Chen's shimmy to pull them up. Remini then said Chen's husband Les Moonves probably didn't want to deal with them either, and tore them from her legs. Romano had to follow that, and Remini asked him, "Do men like hose?"

Jeff Lewis Is Not a Fan of the Kinder, Gentler Perez Hilton (VIDEO)

Jeff Lewis and Perez Hilton on 'The Talk'Jeff Lewis, the star of Bravo's reality series 'Flipping Out,' is an outspoken human drama machine. So it wasn't exactly surprising Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated) when he told celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton that he had become too nice and needed to get back to ripping and doodling on celebs.

Lewis is not a fan of the kinder, gentler Perez, who changed his site's tone after being publicly pressured by Ellen Degeneres. "You're much more complimentary now, you're less mean-spirited, and you're a little ... you're less snarky," said Lewis. "I like the old you."

Lewis asked Hilton if he could "do another blog for people like me? Because there's a lot of us." Hilton responded that he enjoyed being more positive, and Lewis said that was fine, but some celebrities "act like jerks" and deserve Hilton's snarky comeuppance.

'The Talk' Panel Reacts With Shock to the Casey Anthony Verdict (VIDEO)

Reactions to the Casey Anthony 'not guilty' verdict on 'The Talk'It was a day of mixed emotions Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), as the panel reacted live to the verdict from the Casey Anthony trial. The room was filled with nervous anticipation in the moments before the verdict, as Julie Chen made the executive decision to stay with the show instead of breaking to coverage, joking that she would discuss any fallout from the decision with her husband, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves, at the dinner table.

But the breezy tone quickly changed as she reported the shocking verdict -- the studio audience gasped and then grew quiet as the "not guilty" verdicts came in on the separate murder, manslaughter and child abuse charges. Leah Remini, bewildered, threw her hands up in the air and almost walked off the set. Chen herself appeared close to breaking down at one point, leaving Holly Robinson Peete to finish reading the remaining counts.

Jill Zarin Tells Leah Remini She'd Make a Great 'Real Housewife' (VIDEO)

Leah Remini on 'The Real Housewives of New York City' on 'The Talk''The Real Housewives of New York City' is missing its most recognizable face this season without Bethenny Frankel. But that hasn't hurt the show, said Jill Zarin on Wednesday's 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Zarin said she was happy for Frankel and all of her post-show success, and then got into the details that make the show popular, the interpersonal friction between the different housewives.

At the insistence of Leah Remini, Zarin addressed her troubles with fellow housewife Ramona Singer. "Have you sat her down, seriously, off camera and said, 'Ramona, come and watch the show and look how you look," said Remini. Zarin said she was having problems with Singer lying about small details, like whether Zarin owned the Ferrari she drove in season one.

Remini was so passionate about the feud that Holly Robinson Peete asked Zarin if she thought Remini would make a good addition to the cast. Zarin said she would, and Remini seemed open to the idea, saying she loves the show.

Megan Mullally: The TV Squad Interview

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 25th 2009 11:03AM
Megan Mullally in In The MotherhoodThere aren't many actresses out there that you could affectionately call a "broad," but Megan Mullally's one of them. Ever since she came on the scene a decade ago as the caustic and spoiled Karen Walker on Will & Grace, Mullally has shown that she can be bawdy with the best of them.

Now, after a foray into the talk show world and a turn as a disabled and ugly -- but desirable -- chief of medicine on Rob Corddry's web series Children's Hospital, Mullally is back on series TV, on ABC's new comedy In The Motherhood (premiering Thursday at 8 PM ET), which was based on a web series that took episode ideas from submissions by real moms. In the series, Mullally plays Rosemary, a "bad ass," as Mullally calls her, who has raised the perfect son even though she's an imperfect mom.

In this quickie interview, Mullally talks about the new show, about a rumor that she was in a catfight with her co-star Cheryl Hines, about how Rosemary and Karen could be the new Odd Couple, and running her Kerry Weaver-esque Children's Hospital character past Laura Innes.

Can she talk? Leah Remini in talks for a talk show

Rach and LeahQueen Latifah couldn't make it work. Megan Mullally struck out, too. In fact, if you think about it, more stars fail in their attempts to become talk show hosts than succeed. For every Ellen DeGeneres and Tyra Banks, there's a Caroline Rhea and Magic Johnson.

So, will sitcom star Leah Remini go from the King of Queens to the queen of daytime talk? CBS -- home of King of Queens for a very successful run from 1998-2007 -- is developing a daytime show for Leah Remini that's being called something different than a typical talk show.

If you tune in to The Rachael Ray Show today, you might get an idea of what Leah could bring to daytime -- she's Rach's guest.

Leah Remini to star in motherhood webisodes

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 17th 2007 2:44PM
in the motherhoodActress Leah Remini is moving to the internet for her next gig, now that The King of Queens is over. She'll star in a series of webisodes called In the Motherhood. It's an interesting premise, really. The episodes will be based on, or at least incorporate, consumer-generated stories about being a mom. It's all on this website, which is being promoted heavily on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. There's a video on the website where Remini asks moms to write in about their funny stories and then vote on the other stories that were submitted. The favorites will be written into episodes of In the Motherhood.

Right now, there are five episodes planned for a ten-week stretch starting on May 11.

King of Queens' latest season to be last

by Annie Wu, posted Dec 23rd 2006 9:32AM
King of QueensCBS has announced that, after nearly a decade of being on the air, King of Queens will end after its current season runs out in May. Now that Will & Grace and That 70s Show are out of the picture, the program is currently the longest-running sitcom on air

Although the show still experiences some decent success in ratings and only recently got their first Emmy nomination (a nod to star Kevin James, this year), I think it's time to pull the plug. I actually used to find the show relatively enjoyable (compared to similar sitcoms like According to Jim), but the whole "Check out the fat guy with the hot chick!" thing began to wear thin a few seasons ago.

Ooh! Here's an idea: A wacky sitcom all about a fat wife and her super-hot husband. Haha, I'm just kidding... We've already seen that on Roseanne, with Roseanne Barr and that smokin' super-fox John Goodman.
