Debbie Reynolds wanted Carrie Fisher and husband to have babies

Debbie Reynolds just knew husband Richard Hamlett would make some beautiful babies – not with her, but with her daughter Carrie Fisher!

At the December 7 Hollywood premiere of "Wishful Drinking," the HBO film based on Fisher's autobiographical one-woman show, movie legend Reynolds admitted to CNN that she once suggested that Hamlett and the "Star Wars" star should have a child together.

"He was very attractive and he had blue eyes, and I thought it would work out," Reynolds tells CNN of husband number three, whom she was married to from 1984-1996. "[Carrie] was so young!"

Here's to a 'Glee'-ful holiday season

Yes Brittany, there is a Santa Claus.

How incredibly sweet was Tuesday night’s episode of “Glee”? The holidays are all about believing in magic, and that’s just what the show was this time around. From Sue’s Grinch right on through to Beiste’s Santa, it was all types of adorable.

Will was still sad that Emma's married and declined her offer to come to her and the hubby’s Christmas Eve party. Good for you Mr. Schue, because spending that day with the woman you love and her new dude would be AWKWARD.

Obsessions: Loving to hate Bristol Palin

When it comes to Bristol Palin, folks are drinking gallons of the Haterade.

The younger Palin appears to be well on her way to becoming almost as big a lightening rod as her political mother, despite never having run for office herself. She's been criticized for everything from her romantic choices to her skills  - or lack thereof - on “Dancing with the Stars," which she didn't even win, by the way.

There's even been conspiracy theories surrounding her participation in the show (allegedly Mommy made her do it!) and the voters who kept her in the running right up to the finals (allegedly some swift dialing Tea Party members!).  You know things are bad when former "American Idol" contestant,  Sanjaya, has to come to your defense.

Oprah Winfrey in talks to produce, star in HBO film

She may be retiring from the talk-show business but Oprah Winfrey isn't giving up on her acting ambitions. The TV titan is set to produce and star in an HBO Films adaptation of the Pulitzer prize-winning 2009 off-Broadway play, "Ruined."

Deadline.com reports that Winfrey – whose last major role was in the 1998 drama "Beloved" – is expected to play Mama Nadi, a madam who runs a brothel in war-torn Congo and attempts to keep herself and her girls from getting caught between the rebel armies and the government.

Though 56-year-old Winfrey received an Oscar nomination for her role as Sofia in 1985's "The Color Purple," "Beloved" received a critical bashing.

The new year promises to be a busy one for Winfrey. Besides launching OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network on January 1, she's also planning to star opposite Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep in a comedy revolving around a home shopping channel.
