'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.

'Hot in Cleveland' - 'Elka's Choice'Man, it's good to have 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). What only became a breakout hit because of the hot streak Betty White was on at the time has launched an entire line of new series for TV Land, but the original continues to bring the best laughs.

Picking up on threads from the season finale, Elka struggled to decide which man to choose -- including her not-so-dead husband (Don Rickles) -- while Joy and Victoria dealt with the aftermath of their drunken marriage.

The two of them as a couple, even though they're both straight, proved to be funnier than when other shows have done it in the past. Particularly when Victoria tried to use it to score her a job on the new 'The View' rip-off 'The Chatter,' starring Kathie Lee Gifford.

Surprise Appearance Stops Elka's Wedding on 'Hot in Cleveland' Finale (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 1st 2011 6:17AM
'Hot in Cleveland' - 'Elka's Big Day''Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) sure loves cliffhanger finales. Last season, we saw a tornado that revealed the secret stash of ill-gotten loot from Elka's dead husband Bobby. That little reveal landed Elka in some serious legal trouble at the beginning of this season.

But all that behind her, she found love and was poised to get married for this season's finale, only to have it interrupted by countless men who didn't want her to marry Frank, but them instead.

Even Max came back from Florida, which we expected was the dramatic cliffhanger to tease us until the show returns at the end of November. But they weren't done yet.

Meanwhile, the girls got Elka so worried about her wedding that she turned into the episode's title, a 'Bridezelka.'

She even sent Joy in her place to meet with the minister. After he complimented her hair, she immediately shouted, "I want to have sex with you!"

It was the name of a song he'd recorded before he received the calling into the ministry. This set up the first of two recreations of the song in this episode.

Charles Shaugnessy Reunites With 'Nanny' Fran Drescher on 'Happily Divorced' (VIDEO)

Charles Shaughnessy, 'Happily Divorced'It was a mini-reunion of 'The Nanny' when Mr. Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) appeared on the season finale of Fran Drescher's new show 'Happily Divorced' (Wed., 10:30PM ET on TV Land). Now Shaughnessy's an accomplished author, but his attraction to Fran was just as intense.

Only, he appeared to have a similar interest in Peter. It was all very confusing throughout the entire episode, until a classic mix-up led to both Peter and Fran meeting Shaugnessy in his hotel room, where he created a romantic atmosphere and announced that he was both gay and straight.

And apparently into threesomes as well. He must have figured that since Peter and Fran had been intimate with one another during their marriage, they wouldn't mind doing so again, only this time with him as well.

Huey Lewis' 'Heart of Rock & Roll' Can't Take Victoria's Costume on 'Hot in Cleveland' (VIDEO)

Huey Lewis, 'Hot in Cleveland''Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) added a framing sequence to this episode, that actually worked pretty well. Sure, it was just a fun nod to 'Sex and the City,' but framing it with an article Melanie was writing created a nice cohesiveness to the tale.

'Sex and the City' permeated this story of hooking up in Ohio. While Melanie sought to see if she could have sex with no strings attached, Victoria is surprised by Johnny (Huey Lewis). Her entire relationship with him has been no strings attached, but after he suffers a heart attack on the front porch, he changes.

That front porch is turning into a dangerous place, between Joy shooting her son there and Rick seducing the women there, they should consider maybe never using the front door again.

Melanie Tries to Overlook a Guy's Foot Fetish on 'Hot in Cleveland' (VIDEO)

'Hot in Cleveland' - 'Arch Enemies'Melanie made a vow to be a more spontaneous and open-minded version of herself after moving to Ohio on 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). To her credit, she hung in there longer than many of us would have been able to with her latest boyfriend, Bill.

It's one thing to have a foot fetish, but Bill took it to extremes that went beyond uncomfortable and into the realm of downright disturbing. He did take Melanie through uncomfortable first, though, when he got down on one knee in a public restaurant to give her a toe ring.

The crowd went from "Aww" to "Eww" as they realized they weren't watching a proposal. But even that embarrassment didn't push him away completely. That happened when he brought "good girl" and "bad girl" costumes for her feet. That line you crossed way back there? Yeah, we can't even see it anymore.
