John Slattery defends 'Mad Men' co-star

January Jones' cold reputation continues, thanks to recent comments from her onscreen son, but “Mad Men” co-star John Slattery is coming to her defense. Sort of.

Jared Gilmore, who is the third little boy to play Bobby Draper, warned the next kid playing Jones' son to “be careful around” her. (Gilmore is leaving the show for a new series.)

"Well, it's an intimidating character," Slattery said to E! News of Gilmore's comment, insinuating that maybe the little tyke confused Jones’ real personality with acting. "I mean, that's the character. Betty Draper is an intimidating woman I suppose, if you were a seven-year-old boy [or] her son." (Or if you’re Zach Galifianakis.)

'The doctor is out' on 'Pretty Little Liars'

The liars made a lot of progress this week. They finally stuck up for themselves – confiding in Dr. Sullivan about A and everything he/she/they (who knows) has/have been up to.

But before you breathe a sigh of relief, this is “Pretty Little Liars” we’re talking about.

Every step forward ultimately results in two steps back.

What's the fate for Paris Hilton's 'World'?

"The World According to Paris" may be coming to an end.

New York Magazine's Vulture reports that after the poor ratings of the first season, Paris Hilton's latest venture into reality TV won't be able to resuscitate itself for a second season, according to unnamed sources.

The network for the reality show, Oxygen, isn't saying whether Hilton's "World" has officially been folded, noting that "The show just recently completed its run and no pick up decision has been made."

Reality stars need not apply here

Reality stars need not apply here

Forget Paris... and the Kardashians, Omarosa, Boston Rob, Jon and Kate, Snooki and The Situation. You won't see reality stars receiving recognition on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The question was posed and answered this week on the Walk of Fame's Facebook page: "Someone asked if we give reality show characters stars? Hell to the No!" At last check, 60 people had "liked" the post, and most of the 35 comments agreed with the sentiment.

Could, say - just for instance - Kim Kardashian buy herself a star? Critics like to point out that honorees must pony up $30,000 for the privilege, the funds to create and install the star, and to help maintain the Walk.

Craig Ferguson makes light of anthrax scare

It's a comic's job to find humor in even the scariest situations and late night talk show host Craig Ferguson did just that.

After an anthrax scare at the CBS studio of "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" he tweeted, "Ack!Someone mailed my show white powder & claimed it was anthrax. I'm not a big fan of that sort of thing. #thanksFBI&LAPD&LAFD&CBSsecurity [sic]."

During his monologue on his Tuesday night show, Ferguson told his audience that "an envelope packed with white powder" had been mailed to his studio, which caused the show's taping to run late.  FULL POST

Simon Cowell: I've thought about hooking up with Paula

Wheaties claims to be the breakfast of champions, but for Simon Cowell, a winning day starts like this: papaya juice with lime, tea, oatmeal, and three different smoothies (spinach, a seven fruit blend and one filled with antioxidants).

Every day of the week, for the past five years, this is what he has....while watching "The Flintstones" and "The Jetsons," he tells GQ in an interview that tries to take a look at the man behind the "Idol" and "X Factor" personas.

Cowell's routine is so strict, that he won't even interrupt his regular intravenous drip of B-12, magnesium, vitamin C, and a little something for his liver. If he's working, he gets hooked up for the half-hour treatment anyway.
