'Glee' does 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'

The Halloween episode of "Glee" that will air on October 26 might have fans feeling like they're in a time warp: The McKinley High students will star in a production of the '70s cult classic, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."

TV Guide reports that Rachel (Lea Michele) has landed the lead role of Janet, while Mercedes (Amber Riley) will step into Tim Curry's corset as Frank-N-Furter while Finn (Cory Monteith) will play dorky Brad.

"Cory's just a big goofy nerd, and so is Brad; he was perfect," says Chris Colfer, whose character Kurt will play creepy Riff Raff.

Cox and Arquette split: More than just a marriage

Cox and Arquette split: More than just a marriage

The end of the marriage between Courteney Cox and David Arquette could be complicated by more than just how to divide the houses and wedding gifts.

That’s because they are also business partners, having formed Coquette Productions in 2004. The pair launched the production company soon after the birth of their daughter Coco, and the West Hollywood-based corporation has been the base of several of their projects, including the now-canceled tabloid based drama “Dirt” (which ran briefly on FX) and Cox’s current starring vehicle “Cougar Town” on ABC.

The couple, who reportedly have “A Deal’s a Deal” inscribed on their wedding rings, recently announced that they have decided to engage in a trial separation after 11 years of marriage.

Kim Kardashian takes it (all) off for W magazine

As "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" proves, Kim Kardashian is not one to be shy in front of cameras. In the latest issue of W magazine, she's at her most revealing – appearing completely nude in the magazine's pages.

Showbiz Tonight talks about the controversy

Photographer Mark Seliger shot Kardashian, 29, for the November Art Issue, in which she stands stark naked on the cover (except for a few strategically placed banners) and wears nothing but silver body paint on her famous assets in what appears to be an accompanying portfolio.

Chelsea Handler lands E! comedy series

E! is hoping you can handle more Chelsea Handler. The network has given the late-night talk show host her very own comedy series.

Variety reports that Handler will star in "After Lately," a 30-minute program that will focus on the backstage goings-on at her popular talk show, "Chelsea Lately."

Storylines will be outlined rather than completely scripted, giving Handler and crew – including Guy Branum, Sarah Colonna, Heather McDonald, Chris Franjola and Brad Wollack – plenty of room to riff a la Larry David and gang on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

Before she was Gaga, she was a 'Sopranos' extra

Before she was Gaga, she was a 'Sopranos' extra

Here's one video Lady Gaga probably wishes fans would never see. Back when the outrageous singer was just an awkward 15-year-old, she appeared on "The Sopranos" – and now her cameo is all over YouTube!

In the 2001 episode, titled "The Telltale Moozadell," Tony Soprano's son A.J. and his pals break into the school pool, throwing a desk and other items into the water and smashing a trophy case. Gaga (aka Stefani Germanotta) - still years away from rocking a meat dress - wears a black top and jeans while sitting with two female friends, laughing and smoking a cigarette as she watches the boys.

Surprisingly, the headline-making, political activist musician does not join in the ruckus.

According to MTV, this isn't the only TV gig that the 24-year-old New York native has had prior to reaching superstardom. Besides appearing as a victim on the network's hidden-camera prank show "Boiling Points" in 2005, she also turned up on a 2008 episode of "The Hills."

Adam Lambert will tone it down for Malaysian concert

He may have shocked the United States with his same-sex kiss on last year's American Music Awards, but Adam Lambert has vowed to tone it down for his upcoming performance in Malaysia.

The Pan Malaysian Islamic Party has reportedly expressed fears that Lambert's show would promote "gay culture" in the predominantly Muslim country, where homosexual activity is illegal, according to the UK's Guardian newspaper.

As a result, the openly gay "American Idol" runner-up Lambert, 28, will make a few alterations at his Kuala Lumpur concert – but he isn't necessarily happy about it.
