'Gilmore Girls' turns 10

“Please, Luke. Please, please, please.”

And with that very first line of dialogue, the premiere episode of “Gilmore Girls” aired exactly 10 years ago today. Our heroine, Lorelai Gilmore was - as she often did throughout the series’ seven-year run – begging for coffee.

Although “Gilmore Girls” ended in 2007, it still experiences renaissances on a continuous loop due to daily airings of re-runs on ABC Family and SOAPnet. With DVD and iTunes sales going strong, it’s no wonder there’s so much buzz about a possible “Gilmore Girls” movie and demand among fans for an eighth season.

Lil Wayne to serve 30 days in isolated cell

Lil Wayne to serve 30 days in isolated cell

Rapper Lil Wayne has been moved into what Rikers Island officials refer to as “punitive segregation," New York Department of Corrections Spokesman, Stephen Morello confirmed to CNN. The artist began the prison stint back in March because of a gun possession charge.

The reprimand was handed down because of music-related contraband; it turns out that Wayne was caught with an MP3 charger and headsets during a search of his cell a few months ago. (Another inmate was caught actually holding the MP3 player.)

Lil Wayne, who was relocated to the isolated cell on Monday, is expected to spend 30 days there, which means he won’t have contact with or circulate among the rest of the prison population. It also means that he’ll spend 23 out of 24 hours inside the cell, with an hour of guard-supervised recreation.

The 28-year-old is expected to be released from prison around November 3.

Katherine Heigl's a fan of electronic cigarettes

Cigarettes used to be a stress reliever for Katherine Heigl, but now the 31-year-old actress is definitively proclaiming that "smoking sucks" - except when it comes to electronic cigarettes.

Heigl, whose movie “Life As We Know It” opens on October 8, told Parade magazine that an electronic cigarette has been a life-saver for the past six months.

“I know it sound’s ridiculous, but it's helping me not to actually smoke real cigarettes,” Heigl said. “You feel like you are smoking, and you get to exhale but it’s just water vapor and not nicotine.”

Dana Delany's botched Botox job struck a nerve

Actress Dana Delany has sworn off cosmetic surgery after a botched Botox job left her with a droopy eye.

"Something nobody ever talks about is doctor error," the 54-year-old star of ABC's "Body of Proof" tells November's Prevention magazine. "Seven years ago, I had never even heard about Botox. My dermatologist was saying, 'You should try it.' He injected my forehead, hit a nerve, and created a huge hematoma. The nerve has been dead ever since."

In fact, Delany says, "It affected the muscle in my right eye, so my eye has started to droop a little bit… I was symmetrical before and now I am not. I stopped going to him right then."

Football, fatherhood and firearms on 'Five-O'

Last night's episode of "Hawaii Five-O" began on the football field, with the Five-O squad watching a high school game. Danno's young daughter, who until now has been mentioned but not seen, shows up as well, listening to her dad complaining that tennis is not a real sport.

Just then, two people walk on to the field and draw their guns. (Maybe they're not fans of the two-point conversion...)  McGarrett and Danno take care of the two, but a third man gets away following a brief standoff with Chin Ho, who appears reluctant to stop him.

The mystery man is finally brought in, and we come to learn that he's Sid, an undercover cop trying to break up a street gang involved in the football field shooting.  He's also Chin Ho's cousin and wants nothing to do with him, due to those "dirty cop" allegations the show likes to bring up every seven minutes or so.
