Debi Mazar and hubby are 'Extra Virgin'

Good luck talking to "Entourage" star Debi Mazar and her husband Gabriele Corcos without getting hungry.

The couple are the hosts of the new Cooking Channel show "Extra Virgin," and they have a way with words that makes apparent their passion for food. That's why they agreed to let cameras into their home to film the show, which combines their love of cooking with their love of family.

"You would not be inspired if I was like in some dope kitchen with all the accouterments and everything fake," Mazar said. "When you come into our house you get a flavor for our life, our travels, our kids, our 18-year-old poodle who is like blind, deaf and incontinent but so happy."

Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman play friends with benefits in the new comedy "No Strings Attached," but in real life, Kutcher says he and wife Demi Moore were friends a long time before there were any benefits.

"My relationship was a relationship first," Kutcher, who met 48-year-old Moore in 2003 and wed two years later, tells the February issue Redbook.

"Well, there wasn't anything physical happening for awhile, but from the get-go it was more than friendship. It was a deeper connection than that," he said.
