Betty White can't attend Marine Corps ball

Sorry Sgt. Ray Lewis - Betty White can't accept your invitation to the Marine Corps ball!

Although Lewis' fellow Marines had luck using YouTube to land Marine Corps ball dates with celebrities, it didn't work out this time.

“I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform," White says in a statement. "But unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of 'Hot In Cleveland.' Love, Betty White.”

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should J.Lo stay single?

A lot of people are shocked that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are splitting up. So as J.Lo’s career continues to soar with her album release and her judging duties on “American Idol,” we are asking tonight: Should J.Lo stay single?

Lopez is no stranger to high profile relationships, and had two marriages before tying the knot with Anthony in 2004. Her first marriage in 1997 was to Ojani Noa, who we know more recently as the ex who tried to release an alleged sex tape of Lopez. Following that marriage, Jennifer had a romance with Sean “Diddy” Combs that we can’t forget – remember that infamous green, low-cut dress and the New York nightclub gun frenzy?

Next, J.Lo married her former back-up dancer Cris Judd, who she met while filming her music video for “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”

Idina Menzel's coming back to 'Glee'

Another set of powerhouse pipes are tuning up for "Glee" - according to Deadline, Idina Menzel is coming back with a major storyline for the new season.

The last time we saw Menzel's Shelby Corcoran, she'd been revealed as the biological mother of Lea Michele's character Rachel Berry, but eventually skipped town after adopting the baby born to Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Puck (Mark Salling).

Season 3 sees Corcoran return to McKinley High as a new teacher, just in time to complicate things for former flame Mr. Schue and Rachel. According to Deadline, this plot point could span 10 to 12 episodes.

Said show co-creator Ryan Murphy, "I'm really excited that Idina is joining the family again. We missed her last year and we're glad she's coming back."

Did you miss Menzel as much as Murphy did?

Jerry Seinfeld joins Twitter: 'Am I done yet?'

Jerry Seinfeld joins Twitter: 'Am I done yet?'

A few months after brushing off the idea of a Twitter account, Jerry Seinfeld has given in. The 57-year-old comedian/actor can now be found offering 140-character bites of his thoughts via the account @SeinTime.

Seinfeld's rep told the New York Times - which reported back in May that the comedian wasn't interested in tweeting - that it's definitely him. "It's really Jerry," the rep said. "The day we've all been waiting for."

Except Seinfeld himself doesn't seem too thrilled with the site. His first tweet on Friday: "Greetings Tweetarians! I have just landed on your Planet. This could be my last Tweet." It wasn't, but tweet No. 2 wasn't any more enthused. "Second Tweet! Am I done yet?"

Not quite. Seinfeld continued testing his Twitter skills twice on Saturday, but has been quiet since.

'Ice Loves Coco,' and her family too

'Ice Loves Coco,' and her family too

"Ice Loves Coco" was reminiscent of "Keeping up with the Kardashians" on Sunday. Let's see: Family squabbles mixed with family bonding and lots of cuteness? Check, check and check.

This episode was all about Ice-T and his bodacious wife, Coco, leaving their penthouse in Jersey to vacation at Coco's house in Scottsdale, Arizona. Yes, I said Coco's house; Ice-T was quick to let viewers know who rules his roost.

"This is Coco's house. She bought it. Lock, Stock and barrel and we named it Coco's cabana," he said. "It's really just a pool house in the middle of the desert." So there you have it....it's Coco's cold hard cash that paid for this one apparently.
