'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint': Is Anthony Weiner Hollywood-bound?

Congressman Anthony Weiner has finally resigned from office after his Twitter sexting scandal. And today, I can tell you he’s starting to receive Hollywood offers. So we have to ask, should Weiner go to Hollywood?

It’s certainly fun to ponder the idea of Anthony Weiner going Hollywood, and it’s easy to see how writers or shows might want to capitalize on his story since people are so aware of him right now. But I think what he really needs to do is disappear and work on his life. Although, if Weiner does decide to go Hollywood, he will fit right in with the narcissistic crowd.

We’ve also got a big debate tonight over Lady Gaga new video, “Edge of Glory.” Some people think it’s brilliant, some think it’s a total bore.

Buzz Aldrin files to divorce wife

Looks like it is a bad week for octogenarian love.

First 85-year-old Hugh Hefner loses his fiancée and now PEOPLE is reporting that 81-year old Buzz Aldrin has filed for divorce from his wife of more than 23 years.

The astronaut and former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant reportedly separated from his wife on Tuesday and is citing  "irreconcilable difference" in the divorce petition filed Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Lois Driggs Cannon was Aldrin's third wife and could often be seen cheering him from the audience when he competed last year on "DWTS."

The trailer focuses largely on the life-or-death battle between Potter and Lord Voldemort, but also teases the infamous Hogwarts battle, rare moments between Ron-and-Hermione and the Molly Weasley-Bellatrix Lestrange showdown.

'Big Bang Theory' star: Penny's last name is...?

If you're still wondering what Penny's last name is on "The Big Bang Theory," you're not the only one. Even the cast hasn't been clued in about Kaley Cuoco's character, claims star Jim Parsons.

"We really don't know. I've made suggestions. We all have. But nobody will take one," he tells The Wrap. "She really doesn't have one - unless they've been writing one over the summer break. When I left work, Penny had no last name."

Of course, that hasn't stopped the cast and crew from getting creative. FULL POST

Big surprises (and Lady Gaga) on 'SYTYCD'

Well, that was unusual.

Thursday night's "So You Think You Can Dance" results show, the first one this season, fittingly had a couple of unexpected firsts.

What was expected, for the most part, were the couples who made the bottom three. I was correct in guessing that Jess and Clarice, and Tadd and Jordan would be at the bottom. I was a little surprised that Robert and Miranda were there though, but not entirely. I may have overestimated Robert's popularity, but, then again, there are plenty of winners who have been in the bottom.
