Rhea Perlman has a lot going on these days. She visited 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9 AM PT on Fox) to talk about her upcoming Hallmark Channel movie 'Oliver's Ghost,' in which she plays the neighbor of a boy who moves to the suburbs and sees ghosts. She reassured everyone that it's a family film, but when Steve Edwards asked her if it was too scary for her husband Danny DeVito, she joked, "Danny's very delicate. I have to be careful with him."

Perlman was also excited about another upcoming project, a sitcom called 'The Manzanis' where she'll be reuniting with her former 'Cheers' co-star Kirstie Alley. Perlman said her role as Alley's mother-in-law is one she was born to play. When Edwards asked her if they were about the same age, she joked, "I have no idea how old she is and I certainly have no idea how old I am."

Rob Kardashian insists he doesn't care about reality TV fame. "I'm not like my sisters, I'm different, I'm just not out there, I'm a homebody," he told 'Good Day L.A.' (weekdays, 7AM PT on Fox). But yet, after being born into reality TV royalty, he's chosen to pull double-duty on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

Rob remains conflicted about his newfound 'Dancing' fame. When Jillian Barberie pointed out that his whole life is now camera, he replied, "I know, I hate all that ... I wish the cameras weren't there, I'd do better." He's also eschewing traditional 'Dancing' norms by shooting down rumors that he's dating his partner Cheryl Burke. "No, I keep it strictly ... I just want her to teach me to do well," he said, before both Barberie and Steve Edwards finished his thought with the phrase "strictly ballroom!"

Maks Chmerkovskiy specializes in having flirty rivalries with his female 'Dancing With the Stars' partners. Last season, he and Kirstey Alley had a strange, unsettling chemistry that nobody could quite figure out. This year, he's been paired with the significantly younger and hotter Hope Solo, but she doesn't appear susceptible to the charms of the man who calls himself "sex on a stick."

On 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 7AM ET on Fox) Solo, the former goalie of the U.S. Women's Soccer team, said she tried putting Maks in goal, but his jeans were too tight for him to move quickly. Hope also shared that when they first met, she told him Maks he was "the girliest man" she'd ever met.

Actually, Bradley said the whole thing was a scripted set-up. As Simon was judging him after his performance, The Astronomical Kid cut him off, saying "Yo, what is your problem, man? Are you serious?" He told Cowell he was lucky they weren't in the streets "because if we was in the streets, this is what I'd say to you. Soundman, drop that," and then transitioned into his next song.

As Ricki Lake sat down to chat with 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) she pulled up her leg and showed off her 'Dancing With the Stars' war-wounds as if it was a scene from 'Jaws.' "The thing is, I am not a dancer," she said, even though one of her very first roles was in 'Hairspray' and she currently finds herself in first place in the competition.

Nonetheless, Lake is still surprised to be leading the pack. "I was hoping to stay into the competition and get in as good a shape as possible. I wanted to be in the middle of the pack."

by Stephanie Opella, posted Sep 28th 2011 5:00PM

'American Idol' fan favorite Casey Abrams checked in with 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) to talk about the 'Idols Summer Tour' and perform a very 'Casey' interpretation of the Rob Thomas/Santana song 'Smooth.'

He reported that all of the former 'Idol' contestants were getting along well on the tour. "More than you'd imagine," he said. "James Durbin got us into wrestling ... watching it, we weren't doing it."

Casey's eclectic style, which is a little rock and a lot of jazz, got him all the way to the Top 6 in Season 10, but he didn't connect with everyone. When Dorothy Lucey asked him if he thought he was too weird for 'Idol,' he concurred. "I feel ... yes, yeah. A little too much, you know?"

Emmys Comedy Actress Beauty Pageant Was Amy Poehler's Idea (VIDEO)

Parks and Rec Good Day LAAfter such a long summer, it's hard to believe that it's almost time to return to Pawnee, Ind. and catch up with the 'Parks and Recreation' gang.

Stars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, otherwise known as Leslie Knope and Ron Effing Swanson, appeared on 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) ostensibly to preview Season 4 of the NBC show (premieres Thu., Sept. 22, 8:30PM ET), but they mostly talked about Poehler's hilarious bit at the Emmys on Sunday where the entire Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy category was turned into a beauty pageant.

Unsurprisingly, the entire thing was Poehler's idea (with an assist from fellow nominee Martha Plimpton). And although presenter Rob Lowe planned for it (he had a bouquet and a tiara ready for winner Melissa McCarthy), Poehler shared a fun fact about the actor (and 'Parks and Rec' costar) that you might not know: he carries that tiara everywhere. "To be fair, he does always carry a tiara in his pocket," Poehler joked.

Referencing his Depardieu-induced giggle fit, Cooper was asked by an audience member, "we have seen you giggle, when will we see you wiggle?"

"I like to dance," he said. "I enjoy the dancing. But I just sort of feel, does anyone really want a middle-aged, gray-haired guy ..." That's when his crowd interrupted him with cheering.

Kurt and Brenda Warner talk 'Dancing With the Stars' on 'Good Day LA'Today is the first day of the new NFL season, but former Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner found himself talking about a competition he didn't do quite as well in. Kurt and his wife Brenda were on 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) where they talked about the new season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' and reminisced about Kurt's time on the show.

Warner had his problems on the show, one of which was not wanting to do the more intimate dances out of respect for his wife. "That was part of the process of going on the show," he said, "being a Christian guy, like you said, being married. All those things that you want to show people. And you can do the show, and you can have a good time, you can do what the show is all about, but at the same time, you can respect your faith, you know, you can respect your wife and your family."

"I talked to a couple of friends of mine and they said, no, it really would be a great opportunity for you, and we think you'd do great on it," he said.

The 'Swamp Brothers' Show Why You Should Never Grab an Anaconda By the Tail (VIDEO)

A little anaconda musk with the 'Swamp Brothers' on 'Good Day LA'The reptile sanctuary where brothers Robbie and Stephen Keszey work is covered with creepy crawlers. It takes a certain amount of intestinal fortitude to deal with the creatures, and the audience at 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) got a good glimpse of that when the pair from Discovery's 'Swamp Brothers' showed up with some of their reptilian buddies.

There was no trouble with the caiman lizard, a reptile from Peru which Robbie described as "prehistoric looking." The big stink happened, literally, when they brought out the anaconda. Usually, the front end of the snake is most dangerous. Not so here. "Okay I'll take the tail end, although the musk is terrible," said Stephen. Famous last words. Robbie pointed the tail at his brother, who was sprayed immediately and began to cough and choke.
