Valerie Bertinelli Refuses to Spank Craig Ferguson (VIDEO)

Valerie Bertinelli, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Valerie Bertinelli may be a good girl, but that's hard to maintain when you go on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). Craig Ferguson is very, very bad and he likes to bring out the bad in all of his guests.

So when Bertinelli suggested he should come on her show, 'Hot in Cleveland,' he immediately turned around and presented himself to her for a spanking. Why? Who knows. Or maybe because he knows it will get responses like this: "I'll have you know that's not the first a** I've had in my face."

While Bertinelli tried valiantly to change the subject, it simply wasn't going to happen. "Here we are again," Ferguson said. "You discussing your sexual history on the show in a candid and completely forthright manner with the viewers."

Behind-the-Scenes Look at 'Hot In Cleveland' Proves Even Betty White Can't Always Keep a Straight Face (VIDEO)

Betty White getting fresh on the set of 'Hot In Cleveland' Because we can't get enough of Betty White riffing off of her naughty image, Wednesday's episode of 'Hot In Cleveland' (Wednesdays, 10PM on TV Land) provided a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show, featuring White fondling crew members and laughing about some suggestive lines of dialogue.

This particular piece of salty dialogue called for White to say that her screen name was "Bender Over," and she lost it. With the cast assembled in directors chairs on set, Wendie Malick reminded White of that shoot. "That night when you did 'Bender Over,' you just could not hang on," she said. "You absolutely could not."

'Hot in Cleveland' Actresses Talk Small Towns and Self-Image on 'The View' (VIDEO)

Barbara Walters, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, and Valerie Bertinelli of 'Hot In Cleveland' on 'The View'Can moving to a smaller town help improve your self-image? It sounds like a topic for an NPR talk show, but it was part of the discussion Wednesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) with the non-Betty White cast of 'Hot In Cleveland': Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, and Valerie Bertinelli. For the uninitiated, 'Cleveland' is about three women who move to Cleveland to avoid the shallowness and emphasis on youth in Los Angeles.

"When I go home to my little village, I feel very glamorous," said Leeves. "And then sometimes I'll walk out in Los Angeles thinking, 'I'm looking good today.' Then you're out five minutes and you see all these gorgeous 20-year-olds."

Betty White Talks About 'Golden Girls' and SAG Lifetime Achievement Award

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Jan 20th 2010 3:00PM
Veterans of early TV are scarce these days, most being retired or, well, really retired. But after 61 years in the business, the legendary Betty White is enjoying her third or fourth career resurgence -- and told AOL TV she's thrilled to be receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from Sandra Bullock at the SAG Awards on Jan. 23.

After doing radio and summer stock back in the 1940s, White's big break came as the "telephone girl" on a live, local Los Angeles show, 'Hollywood on Television,' hosted by popular DJ Al Jarvis. With all honors to Lucille Ball and 'I Love Lucy,' that gig led to the creation of one of the first female-driven sitcoms, 'Life with Elizabeth.' The TV skies were the limit from there.

TV Land taps television's vintage hottie vault for new sitcom

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 12th 2010 3:30PM

TV Land has officially jumped into the cable sitcom party, even if they showed up just as the hangovers are starting to set in. And for their first venture, they have enlisted the help of some of television's tastiest babes.

Valerie Bertinelli (One Day at a Time), Jane Leeves (Frasier), Wendy Malick (Just Shoot Me) and Betty White (The Golden Girls) have been brought on board to star in Hot for Cleveland, the second sitcom project approved by the cable network. That's right, Betty White is a TV hottie. I will fight ANYONE who makes fun of me for it.

The other show commissioned by TV Land is Retired at 35, and has lined up actor George Segal, Christine Ebersole and SNL alum Casey Wilson, her first role since she was abruptly pumped from the sketch show. Given TV Land's horrible choices in making their own reality shows, do these even have a chance of being a hit?

Jason Alexander the latest Jenny Craig pitch man

seinfeld_jason_alexander_shrinkageNobody can accuse Jason Alexander of not being honest about himself. The actor has not been happy with the way he's been looking of late and he's going to do something about it. Jason Alexander is the new spokesman for Jenny Craig. Not only is it "no soup for you," Jason, it's also no more big salad, too. (Unless the size of Jenny Craig meals have been supersized and nobody told me about it!)

Jason is the latest Jenny Craig celebrity pitcher, joining Sara Rue and Valerie Bertinelli. I can't wait to see Jason in a Speedo like Valerie in the bikini! No, seriously, Jason's goal with the diet is clearly all about shrinkage. He wants his old waistline, the one that made George Costanza such a catch.

The View's Sherri Shepherd is getting a Lifetime show

by Jason Hughes, posted May 19th 2009 2:25PM
Sherri ShepherdIt was inevitable. Ever since Rosie O'Donnell grew a second head and spit venom at Elisabeth Hasselbeck, The View has been on the radar. Even without current host Rosie O'Donnell, there's been buzz with new co-host Whoopi Goldberg. Hasselbeck keeps causing trouble on the set with her lone conservative voice, Whoopi is outspoken in her own right, Joy Behar is a lunatic and even Barbara Walters has been known to snag a headline or two. Of course Lifetime wants a piece of that buzz. And to get it they're grabbing ... uh ... Sherri Shepherd?

Doesn't Sherri Shepherd think she'll fall off the edge of the earth if she goes too far? I thought she was still there because they didn't want to have to rebuild the table with one fewer chair. Huh, I guess I was wrong. Lifetime picked up Sherri Shepherd's sitcom Sherri for 12-episodes.

The immortal Valerie Bertinelli signs on for TBS sitcom

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 20th 2008 11:05AM
Valerie BertinelliPersonally, I don't think it's fair that some of these Hollywood folks get to just keep on making television shows. Especially the ones who don't age like the rest of us. I mean, what if I was waiting for Valerie Bertinelli to get too old for television? Or John Stamos, or Michael J. Fox? These people never look any older. I think they've found the Tuck's secret spring and have been sipping it for decades. In the end, there can be only one and my money's on Dick Clark. I think he is one of the Tucks.

Bertinelli has just been signed to star in a TBS sitcom as a mother of two. Good lord, One Day at a Time was more than thirty years ago! By my estimations that would make her ... let's see, she was a teenager then ... yes I know you can find her birthday easy enough online ... cross-reference how much hotter she was than Mackenzie Phillips ... then carry Schneider's creepy factor of 9.5 and you get ... one hundred and thirty two years old! Amazing! She doesn't look a day over forty-eight. I've gotta find that spring.

Valerie Bertinelli writing a memoir - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 12th 2007 3:01PM

valerie bertinelliValerie Bertinelli, who many remember as Barbara Cooper on One Day at a Time, is publishing her first book, a memoir titled Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time. The book will focus on Bertinelli's life as a young TV star, and her battles with weight gain and depression.

Bertinelli also appeared on Touched by an Angel and is currently a spokesperson for Jenny Craig.

Honestly, I think she looks a lot better with a little extra weight. Not that my five year old self didn't pine for the younger, skinnier Bertinelli when she was on One Day at a Time, but I don't likes m' ladies to be all skin and bones, you know? Of course you do.
