Last Wednesday, Jesse Tyler Ferguson not only revealed that he was engaged - with what had to be the most adorable proposal of all time - but he also showed off a new fashion venture for a cause.
He and his fiance, Justin Mikita, have started a foundation called Tie the Knot, which advocates for "a more stylish and equal America" with a collection of limited edition bow-ties.
As the "Modern Family" star explains in the clip below, proceeds from the bow-ties will go toward organizations that are fighting for marriage equality - and they also make a nice addition to a red carpet tux, as Ferguson showed on the Emmys red carpet Sunday night.
It's been quite the year for Todd Newton.
His memoir, "Life in the Bonus Round," was released in July. He's currently on tour hosting "The Price is Right Live," a stage show based on the iconic CBS series. And he won his first Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host for his work on The Hub's "Family Game Night."
"I'm still on an incredible high," Newton says about his Emmy win. "When you stand up there and give your acceptance speech, I just started to feel that culmination of 20 years in television and the many people who made that reality for me."
With the Emmy Awards set to air on Sunday, we're anxiously awaiting at least one entertaining acceptance speech at the ceremony.
So for those stars who still haven't written a stand-in speech (and who are clearly spending that precious Emmys prep time reading this blog), no need to sweat it - there may still be time to enroll in "JA,N's Emmy Speech Master Class."
JA,N (which stands for "Just Act, Naturally") is a character portrayed by indie queen Parker Posey in this quirky video put out by the good folks behind the Emmys.
With a show business career spanning 63 years and counting, is there anything Betty White still wants to do?
"My answer to every question is Robert Redford,” White told CNN, “but I've never met him and I don't want to meet him. I've taken his name in vain so many times I'd be embarrassed if I met him.”
There are only so many ways to say "thank you" to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for a Primetime Emmys nod, but a few of these nominated stars did try to come up with creative ones.
From "Homeland" stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis to the Twitter shout-out from Zooey Deschanel to her category competitor Lena Dunham, take a look at a round-up of reactions from Emmy nominees after the jump:
Sarah Paulson was not one of those actresses who was caught restfully unaware of her Emmy nomination.
"I wasn't expecting it to happen, but I wasn't sleeping peacefully either," said Paulson, who was nominated for outstanding supporting actress for her performance as Nicole Wallace in HBO's "Game Change." "I don't want to make it sound like I was cool as a cucumber. I was hopeful, but I definitely wasn't sure it was going to happen." FULL POST
