'Modern Family' creator to Ann Romney: We'll let you guest, if ...
It's not everyday a self-professed fan of "Modern Family" gets an offer to guest star, but series co-creator Steve Levitan has extended such an opportunity to Ann Romney ... should one major political development occur.
Ann, the 63-year-old wife of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt, revealed to "Entertainment Tonight" that the Emmy-winning ABC comedy is her favorite show on TV.

Dee Snider 'not going to take' Paul Ryan playing his song
Both K'Naan and the Silversun Pickups have asked the Mitt Romney campaign to refrain from playing their music, and now it seems Twisted Sister's Dee Snider is asking the same of Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan.
According to Talking Points Memo, Ryan apparently played the Twisted Sister track "We're Not Gonna Take It" at a Pennsylvania rally this week, and Snider ... well, he couldn't take it.

Morgan Freeman: Obama's not our first black president
President Barack Obama is considered by some to be the nation's first black president - but Morgan Freeman isn't one such individual.
The actor told NPR's "Tell Me More" host Michel Martin in an interview posted Thursday that "the first thing" that he thinks of when he thinks of Obama is "all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him," Morgan said.

President Obama 'sings' 'Call Me Maybe'
Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" is so pervasive even the President's singing it.
Well, with help from BaracksDubs, which mashes President Obama's speeches with hit songs. And considering that nearly everyone on the Internet has offered their version of what may turn into the song of the summer, it makes sense that Jespen's single would find its way to the Oval Office ... even if it's by way of clever editing.
The President, of course, sees no harm in performing a little a cappella now and then, as he showcased his pipes with a bit of Al Green earlier this year.
"I can sing," he told Rolling Stone in April of his impromptu performance. "I wasn't worried about being able to hit those high notes."
We're sure that applies to Jepsen's earworm, too - think we'll ever see the President sing this one live?

Lifetime picks up Bristol Palin docu-series
We're not sure why we need another opportunity to glimpse into the life of young single mom Bristol Palin, but Lifetime is giving it to us anyway.
The network has picked up 10 half-hour episodes of "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp," which will focus on her "real-life experiences of growing into motherhood" as she raises her 3-year-old son, Tripp, a statement from Lifetime says.
Last year, the BIO channel announced a project that was to see Bristol move into an L.A. abode with fellow former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Kyle Massey and his brother.
