by Audrey Fine, posted Mar 18th 2010 2:00PM
Laura LinneyThis summer, Showtime, whose highly anticipated season 2 premieres of 'Nurse Jackie' and 'United States of Tara' bow next Mon., March 22, will add three new shows to its burgeoning line-up of original series.

With 'The Real L World,' fans of the cable net's long-lived "beautiful lesbians living in West Hollywood" drama, 'The L World,' will thrill to the new reality twist being taken on their cult fave. The show premieres Sun., June 20 at 10PM ET.

Also in the "reality" genre will be 'The Green Room With Paul Provenza,' a show that promises, according to the Los Angeles Times, to "give viewers unprecedented and candid access" to what goes on behind the scenes when celebrated stand-up comics like Roseanne and Bob Saget work to hone their material. Look for 'Green Room' when it premieres Sun., June 10 at 10:30PM ET.

Jennifer Aniston Watches Gabourey Sidibe Hit on Gerard Butler (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 17th 2010 12:13AM
Access Hollywood, Jennifer Aniston, Gerard ButlerJennifer Aniston missed the footage of Gabourey Sidibe hitting on Gerard Butler at the Oscars. But all is well, because she had a chance to watch it on 'Access Hollywood' (weekdays, 12:30PM ET on NBC), while the two were promoting 'The Bounty Hunter' (in theaters Friday).

It's pretty funny, too. On the red carpet, Sidibe said, "I kinda said I'd hit that," referring to Butler, who seemed at a loss for words, but managed to choke out, "I'm here. I'm available."

It was awkward, and continued to be awkward when Aniston and Butler watched it back again like deer caught in the headlights. You've gotta hand it to Sidibe, though, who doesn't shirk from anything. "I like where this is goin'," she said. "Maybe we should get a bottle of champagne and see where the night takes us."

Flaming Jump Ropes Rock 'America's Best Dance Crew' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 12th 2010 3:06AM
America's Best Dance Crew, Flaming Jump RopesOmarion said pretty much what we were thinking while watching the flaming jump ropes on 'Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV).

"What I'm thinking to myself while I'm watching it is, if they mess up this fire, there's somebody ass is gonna be on fire." Yeah, seriously. Props to the fire jumpers.

Then again, those jackets look flame retardant, so maybe it wouldn't have been a complete blaze of glory. And Gabourey Sidibe looked like she loved it.

Whoopi Goldberg Criticizes Howard Stern on 'The View' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 11th 2010 1:30PM
On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Whoopi Goldberg criticized shock jock Howard Stern for a recent comment he made about Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe. Stern said on his satellite radio show that Sidibe's weight would make it difficult for her to have a successful career after 'Precious.'

"Gabby actually has a TV show and two movies that she's doing," Goldberg said in Sidibe's defense. "You think she's big, okay. But at least get the facts right."

'Today' Kidnaps a Sleepless Gabourey Sidibe (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 8th 2010 8:41PM
Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe was walking to her hotel room early Monday morning (after a night of post-Oscar partying, we would assume) and the 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET NBC) producers grabbed her to appear on the show despite her obvious lack of sleep. Her reward for enduring Al Roker's questions: a foot massage by Meredith Vieira.

'Precious' Wins Big at 'NAACP Image Awards' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 1st 2010 3:08AM
NAACP Image Awards, Precious, Gabourey SidibeIt's wonderful to see an important film like 'Precious' get the accolades it deserves. The film swept the 'NAACP Image Awards' (Fri., 8PM ET on Fox), taking home trophies for outstanding motion picture, independent motion picture, actress, and supporting actress.

We loved Gabourey Sidibe's tearful acceptance speech. "I didn't really expect this," she said. "I just want to thank my God for ordering my steps, for everything that my life was, and everything that it is now."

It was also funnily poignant when director Lee Daniels proclaimed, "God is good," and the audience shot back, "All the time!"

Alice Tan Ridley, the mother of Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe, has been a subway singer for 18 years in NYC, and addressed common misconceptions on her profession on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC).

"We are not homeless. We're not beggars and we're not under drug influence," Sidibe said of subway musicians. "There are traditional jobs and there are nontraditional jobs."

Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe appeared on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS) and discussed her crush on Justin Timberlake and the state of her love life.

What You Missed Last Night: The Last 'Jay Leno Show'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 10th 2010 11:29AM
If you missed the very last episode of 'The Jay Leno Show' last night, here are the "highlights."

Because Leno is going back to 'The Tonight Show,' this wasn't a big farewell. It was more like "yeah, this is the last episode, see ya later" (Leno returns to late night after the Olympics).

Ashton Kutcher told Jay the whole 'Jay Leno Show'/'Tonight Show' plot was one of his punks, Bob Costas made a joke comparing Jay to the L.A. Clippers, Jay showed some "best" moments from the show, and Donald Trump told Jay "You're Fired" (which continues to be annoying - Leno wasn't fired, he's simply getting another multi-million dollar position in the same company).

Here's the whole episode:

Gabourey Sidibe is Terrified of Mike Tyson (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 3rd 2010 3:28PM
For Gabourey Sidibe, it doesn't seem the idea of losing the Academy Award for Best Actress in 'Precious' scares her nearly as much as Mike Tyson does. Sidibe appeared on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated) and told a story of a red carpet encounter with the retired pro fighter that left her terrified.

"This one time, I was ... at the Golden Globes. Mike Tyson was there ... and I didn't realize, but I'm terrified of Mike Tyson," Sidibe said. "I'm sure he's a very nice man, but there's something about a face tattoo. Face tattoos say, 'I've gone as far as I want to go in society. And, in fact, I think I want to take a few steps back.'"

Regis Sets Jan. 4 Return Date

by Daniel Frankel, posted Dec 31st 2009 11:58AM
A morning show crisis has officially been averted.

Regis Philbin will return to his seat as co-host of 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' on Jan. 4, series distributor Disney-ABC Domestic Television announced Wednesday.

Philbin set off a minor panic in late November when he told his viewing audience that he was going in for hip surgery and would be back sometime "next year." The ambiguity of that timeline led some to speculate that the 78-year-old Philbin might have something more wrong with him than hip trouble.

'Precious' Star Gabourey Sidibe Joining 'C Word'

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 28th 2009 1:30PM
Gabourey SidibeNot many actors or actresses get Oscar buzz surrounding their debut performance, but Gabourey Sidibe is such a revelation as the lead in 'Precious' that Hollywood had no choice but to take notice. Now, Sidibe is looking to take that positive energy with her to Showtime's forthcoming pilot for 'The C Word.'

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sidibe is negotiating to appear in the pilot as a summer school student in the classroom of Cathy (three-time Academy Award nominee Laura Linney), a a suburban family woman and teacher who becomes diagnosed with cancer. It's pretty heavy subject matter, but the series is being billed as a dark comedy. Cathy chooses, rather than succumbing to her diagnosis, to find the lighter side of her situation.
