Sofia Vergara just gave an adorable interview to Advocate magazine and we just can’t get enough of her special brand of OTT. She describes her bombshell self to the reporter in a most unusual manner. “I look like a transsexual anyway,” she explains. “I’m a woman, but I’m super-exaggerated with my boobs, my ass, my makeup, and my accent. When I get ready for an event, I always look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘I look like a transvestite!’ I love it.” Whether she’s playing Gloria on Modern Family or just being her kooky self in interviews, we can’t get enough of this woman!
She’s also revealed her celebrity girl crush and, well, we couldn’t agree more. “I have many, but I love Halle Berry. She’s perfection” she said, adding, “Every time I see her, I want to give her a standing ovation because she’s so flawless.” Ms Berry has some competition though, from someone a little closer to Sofia’s immediate circle. Close friend and co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson better watch out because Sofia explained, “He also has a very handsome boyfriend [Justin Mikita], and I always tell Jesse that I want him.” Arriba!

Anderson Cooper’s new daily one-hour daytime talk show Anderson is premiering September 12. And we’re totally excited to watch it especially because he’s interviewing Daniel Radcliffe and Snooki on the 13th! Anderson’s backstage blog has been giving us the dope on what to expect, including this promo photograph of him holding hands with a bikini-clad Kathy Griffin! What’s this business then? The blog says Kathy is a house guest and the segment is called “Summer’s Best with Kathy Griffin, Snooki & Daniel Radcliffe”. Are you going to tune in to watch? We will. There’s an Oprah sized void in our hearts that we have to fill with something!

If only we could wake up to something like this every day. As we were sleepily going through posts this morning, new promo shots of Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley popped up at us and all we can say is — who needs espresso? How ridiculously good do they look? (Pause to fangirl). The pictures also served to remind us that Season 3 of the show airs in just two weeks on The CW! As you can tell, we’re fans!
What we’re looking forward to is seeing Wesley’s character Stefan Salvatore go off on a nutty-killer spree because he’s normally the good one! He revealed, “In the first couple of episodes, there’s still a lot of one-foot-in, one-foot-out of this situation he’s in. Something’s gonna happen that drastically changes that, and then at that point, he commits and doesn’t look back. Then he can really enjoy it … To play a character who has absolutely no conscience, that literally felt like taking a load off my shoulders.” Now all we have to do is wait!

Hurray! The new cast of Dancing with the Stars was announced last night, and so another pack of semi-famous celebrities are now upon us, desperate to win the nation’s affection with their rumba-ing while losing a pound or ten. While we’re disappointed Lindsay Lohan is once again absent from the list (we’re still Secreting it) we’ve got some seriously strong contenders who are sure to win us over with their dance moves, their crazy, or both. Let’s take a look see, shall we?
So is she or isn’t she sweetness and light? Little Bobby Draper on Mad Men aka Jared Gilmore thinks January Jones — his TV Mom — totally isn’t. He recently told TV Guide, “She’s not as approachable as the others. She’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.” The kid’s eleven! They normally don’t have any sort of filter at that age which means he probably meant what he said. Which, FYI, totally backs up Zach Galifianakis‘ claim that January is a meanie.
With all the reports pouring in about Ms Betty, her co-star’s done her a solid by leaping to her defense. Standing up for her, John Slattery has said of January, “Well, it’s an intimidating character. I mean, that’s the character. Betty Draper is an intimidating woman I suppose, if you were a 7-year-old boy [or] her so. No, she’s a sweetheart. We got lucky. We don’t have anybody like that. I have no doubts she’ll make a great mother.” Sounds sincere to us, but then again, she may have terrified him into saying that!

Such sad news to report. Lovely Uncle Frank Potenza from Jimmy Kimmel Live! died early yesterday morning. The silver haired guard was a staple on the show featuring in many comedic sketches. He was only 77 when he passed away and details around the cause of death have not yet been released. ABC‘s statement reads, “It is with great sadness that the staff and crew of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ mourn the loss of ‘Uncle Frank’ Potenza. He was beloved by his co-workers and considered an uncle to all. His kindness and humor will be missed by everyone he touched.”
Before working on Jimmy Kimmel‘s — his nephew — show, Frank spent 2 decades as an NYC police officer. Kimmel tweeted, “thank you for your kind words about a very kind man – my Uncle Frank – who passed away this morning.”

There’s something about January Jones that just seems to rub people the wrong way. We’ve told you about Zach Galifianakis chewing her out for being rude, and now her eleven-year-old costar is doing the same! Little Jared Gilmore, better known to the world as January’s TV son Bobby Draper on Mad Men, is leaving the show after one season . But before he goes, he offered some cautionary words to whoever his replacement might be. “Be careful around January,” he told TV Guide. “She’s not as approachable as the others. She’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.” Considering the fact that she plays a raging icy spiteful biotch-sicle on the show, perhaps she’s just really into her role? But the fact that Mad Men has gone through three actors for Bobby might be a hint. We hope Jared has happier days on the set of his next acting job, ABC’s new series Once Upon A Time. And we hope that January chills out!

She said no, people! Denise Richards was offered a Two and a Half Men guest star role for its premiere episode, but she’s turned it down! Not hard to imagine why, right? She’s still the mother of ex-husband Charlie Sheen‘s children so she isn’t touching the show with a bargepole. Not for altruistic reasons, though. Denise is of the opinion that Charlie would make life hell for her if she went anywhere near the Ashton Kutcher starring series!
Sources linked with the show’s production revealed that the deal fell through because, “She would never hear the end of it from Charlie.” Fair enough reason, we think. But we also think that the casting decision may have been Chuck Lorre having a bit of fun with his nemesis. Good thing that Denise is steering clear of the drama.
The producers of The Office are really pulling out all the stops to try and fill the vacuum left by Steve Carell. Guest stars are like CPR for elderly sitcoms, and the end of last season was loaded to the brim with big names, including Will Ferrell, Kathy Bates, Ricky Gervais, Will Arnet, Ray Romano, and more. Plus James Spader has been tapped for a recurring role on the show, but as Dunder Mifflin’s new CEO and not Carrel’s replacement, as previously assumed. And it looks like the parade of guest stars is about to continue with Josh Groban.
The pop-opera crossover heartthrob (and mom favorite) will appear as the brother of Ed Helm‘s character, Andy Bernard. Andy is a passionate a capella singer, so we have our fingers crossed for a hilarious in-office duet! Groban has been flexing his comedy muscles lately, playing a small but memorable role as Emma Stone’s douchey boyfriend in this summer’s Crazy Stupid Love. The flick starred none other than Steve Carell, so who knows..maybe that’s how Josh got the Office job in the first place. We’re excited by all of these famous faces showing up around Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch, but we just hope the show go the Love Boat route and drive the guest stars into the ground.

Time to shout “Oh. Wow.” from the rooftops, fans of UK Skins! Hannah Murray, whose understated and touching portrayal of the oh-so messed up Cassie still gives us goosebumps, has been cast on the next season of Game of Thrones. TV Guide reports that Hannah “will play Gilly, one of the many women living with Old Craster who wants to escape his oppression.” We’re thrilled for Hannah, who has slowly been building her resume with various film roles since her stint on Skins ended. What say you, Game of Thrones fans?
