Playmate of the Year on the Harris-Hefner split

Playmate Crystal Harris told Ryan Seacrest yesterday, is wasn't an argument that lead her to back out of her wedding to Hugh Hefner. It was just a case of cold feet, she says.

But Playmate of the Year Clair Sinclair says there’s much more to the story. Last night, she told HLN’s Joy Behar she’s not surprised the wedding was called off. In fact, she says people were surprised this couple, who “had nothing in common” and “no chemistry,” was getting married in the first place.

Sinclair went so far as to suggest Harris was using Hef to promote a music career. Could it be? While you ponder that, you can listen to Harris’ first single, “Club Queen.”

Watch "The Joy Behar Show" Sunday through Friday at 10 p.m. ET on HLN. For the latest from The Joy Behar Show, click here.

'Big Lebowski 2' in the works?

'Big Lebowski 2' in the works?

Update, 2/2/2011 1:00 p.m.:  Not so fast, "Big Lebowski" fans. EW.com reached out to a Coen Brothers rep who said there are no plans for "Big Lebowski 2." A spokesperson for Tara Reid added to EW, “She heard Jeff Bridges say that he wanted to make 'Big Lebowski 2' and have all the original cast members in it, so she may have misspoke, thinking that included her based on what Jeff said.”

Could Tara Reid have provided us with the best "cat out of the bag" moment so far this year?

Hollywood.tv recently asked Tara Reid, who played the toenail-polished Bunny in the oft-quoted "The Big Lebowski," what projects she's got coming up and, yes, she said it: "Big Lebowski 2."

"The whole cast should be coming back for that," she said.

Is it true? Well, there have been rumblings from "Lebowski" cast members in the past, but nothing definitive. The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, teamed up with "Lebowski" directors, the Coen Brothers, for "True Grit." He told MTV News back in July that "there were no plans, man" to reunite for "Lebowski 2," but said, "If it happens, what a wonderful surprise."

Backstreet Boys and NKOTB team up for new single

Backstreet’s back alright, and so are the New Kids on the Block. All grown up (but forever referred to as boy bands), they talked to CNN on the red carpet at the American Music Awards Sunday.

BSB’s Howie Dorough let a little secret slip in front of our cameras: The two bands have already recorded a new single together. TMI? Maybe. Once Dorough let that cat out of the bag, NKOTB's Joey McIntyre said, "You gave her the scoop, Howie!"

The boy bands made for one of the biggest onstage highlights at the awards show with a medley of hits like "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)," "Hangin' Tough," "I Want It That Way" and "Step By Step." (Update 1:55 p.m. Fans are clearly amped for this union, as the two groups have added 18 shows to their upcoming co-headlined summer tour, with an additional night in both Chicago and Toronto. For more information, head to NKOTBSB.com.)

'Toy Story' creators talk future of franchise

Like an Eagles farewell tour or another Brett Favre retirement, sometimes it’s hard to tell if the end is really the end.

“Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich tells CNN that while the third installment of the “Toy Story” franchise ends with Andy saying goodbye to Woody, Buzz Lightyear and their other plastic pals, “I don’t think it has to be the last time.”

Does that mean we may see “Toy Story 4” down the line? Darla Anderson, who produced “Toy Story 3” hinted that some short films are already in the works.

'Toy Story 3': Review from a 4-year-old

CNN.com’s Stephen Walsh interviewed his kids – Macie, 7, and Ian, 4, after they saw “Toy Story 3” on Friday. Their review, albeit brief, was as much as he could get out of them because they wanted to go back inside and get a snack.

CNN.com: What is “Toy Story 3” about?

Macie: Andy goes to college and he puts some of his toys in the attic, except they get thrown in the dump so they escape. Then they go to Sunnyside Preschool and there’s kids there.

There’s this bear. He’s the bad guy and he ties Buzz Lightyear up. He’s, like, evil. Then Woody, he goes to this girl’s house and he gets played with a lot and then they go into the trash because the bear is there and they’re trying to escape back to Andy’s house.
