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."

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."

Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie MalickWhen you assemble a dream team of actresses like Wendie Malick, Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Betty White -- a.k.a. the ladies on 'Hot In Cleveland' -- it seems like it'd be hard not to have fun.

The TV Land sitcom returns with new episodes (Wed., June 15, 10PM ET on TV Land) just in time to heat up the summer. But what's going to happen?

Malick and Bertinelli were mum on specifics at Monday night's premiere party in New York, but they did let some details slip.

"Let me put it this way," Bertinelli told AOL TV. "Wednesday night: Amish bar. That's what I can tell you. Insane! It's like, 'What the heck are we doing in an Amish bar!?'"

Elka Imitates David Caruso on 'Cleveland'The 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) ladies are spending some time in Los Angeles while Victoria appears on 'All My Children.' Melanie takes a break from selling her L.A. home to scour the studio lots and help Elka find her favorite movie star.

They stroll onto one soundstage and nearly step on a man lying on the ground, covered in bullet wounds. Melanie yelps, but Elka is unfazed: "Hey, dead guy, is this the Robert Redford movie?"

"I wish, lady. Try Stage 19." The two then crash the set of one of the many crime-show dramas. Melanie takes the opportunity to showcase her impression of 'CSI: Miami's' David Caruso. Elka responds, "Sorry about my friend. She's--" (Elka dramatically dons her sunglasses like Caruso) "--lost her mind."

'Hot In Cleveland' Ladies Talk Season 2, Guest Stars & Reviving the Classic Sitcom (VIDEO)

Hot in ClevelandAn original show on TV Land? And now it's boasting SAG Awards nominations? 'Hot In Cleveland' is the little engine that could in the TV landscape, thanks in large part to an unparalleled year for star Betty White.

But don't discount the draw of White's three fabulously funny costars, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves -- as Malick points out, "the combined number of years we've been doing comedy is like 165." I didn't double-check her math or anything, but with 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' 'The Golden Girls,' 'One Day At a Time,' 'Just Shoot Me,' 'Frasier' and more on their collective resumes, you really can't argue with that.

I visited the L.A. set of 'Hot In Cleveland,' where they tape in front of a live studio audience, to chat with the ladies about reviving the classic sitcom, having a career in Hollywood well after your 40s, what's ahead for Season 2 (premieres Wed., Jan. 19, 10PM ET), big guest stars from their TV pasts and more.

'Hot in Cleveland': Do Jane and Betty White Find Love? (VIDEO)

'Hot in Cleveland': Do Jane and Betty White Find Love?And we're back with our favorite quartet of slightly over-the-hill women on 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). On the latest episode, Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) tries to reconnect with her ex-husband; only to learn that he's still with the same bimbo that he dumped her for. Sad!

[Spoiler alert.]

In order to recover, Melanie goes out for drinks with her female pals at a local bar. In a moment of frustration, Melanie yanks off her wedding ring; which then flies off to land in the crowd of people. The ring is instantly recovered by a sexy male cop -- who returns it, and then smiles at Melanie charmingly. Ooh! Could this be a potential love connection?

Inspired by this, the other ladies throw their rings into the random bar crowd as well. Last to go is Joy (Jane Leeves). But when she throws her ring away, it is caught by none other than ... Betty White. Does this mean that Jane and Betty now have a "love connection"? Hey, you could do worse than the estimable Ms. White.

Old Lady Sex on 'Hot in Cleveland'The issue of old-person-sex was always going to come up on 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). Betty White is the star of the show, and her co-stars are slightly older women as well. (Actually, by real world standards, the other actresses are young and ridiculously good looking, but hey -- this is TV. And so, in television terms, they are considered to be "older.")

[Spoiler alert.]

On the latest episode of the show, Betty hands out some sex advice to her female friends. Betty's talk includes a discussion of "boobs" and "back fat." The co-stars listen intently to Betty. And they seem alternately intrigued, grossed out ... and turned on.
