NBC announced a Friends reunion is in the works and Friends fans, like me proceeded to freak out. Then came the news that Matthew Perry won’t participate in the two-hour special. Friends without Chandler?? How is that even possible!?!?! Apparently Perry will be in London preparing for a play, but they many have him skype in at some point and we could possibly find out what Chandler does for a living! The special airs February 21st!

The rumor mill has been churning and this time, actress Olivia Munn and her Green Bay Packers quarterback boyfriend, Aaron Rodgers are at the center of it, along with a possible engagement.

Fox has a TV remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show in the works and Adam Lambert has been cast as Eddie, the former motorcycle delivery boy; a role originally played by Meatloaf. Lambert joins Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox and former Disney Star, Victoria Justice as casting continues.
I mentioned yesterday that Nick Carter was arrested in Florida earlier this week after a bar fight and now a video has come out showing his arrest. He is seen shouting “My name is Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys. I’m a ______ singer! I wanted to sing! That’s all I wanted to do. I wanted to go on the microphone and sing.” Is almost worse than the often used celeb line “don’t you know who I am?”
It seems that Seahawks quarterbacks and singers are a match made in heaven. Former Hawks backup, Charlie Whitehurst is dating Jewel, and while the news came out this week, they duo have apparently been together for a while and actually spent Thanksgiving together at Matt Hasselbeck’s house! Both Hasselbeck and Whitehurst play for the Indianapolis Colts, and an older assistant coach for the Colts was at the Thanksgiving feast as well. When he was introduced to Jewel he had no idea who she was and couldn’t quite grasp her name and ended up calling her Julie the whole night. No one bothered to correct him!
