"I Think She Lost Her Mind in the Hollywood Madness"

So, this is interesting.

The other night, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Miley Cyrus threw on a wig, big glasses and a business suit, and pretended to be a reporter from Australia.

She grabbed a camera crew and went out onto Hollywood Boulevard to interview people about Miley Cyrus.

It's actually pretty funny, and it ends the way you'd sort of expect a Miley Cyrus bit to end.

Give it a look...

Betty White's Next TV Gig

Betty White could well be the hottest actress on TV right now.

She's done all sorts of guest spots on all sorts of shows, and she just wrapped up a six-season run of Hot in Cleveland on TV Land.

Now, she'll be guest starring on Fox's long-running Bones as a squintern.

Don't worry, I had to look it up too.

Squintern is the word Booth (David Boreanaz) uses to describe the people who assist Doctor Brennan (Emily Deschanel) in the lab.

The folks at TV Line report that Betty White will play Dr. Beth Mayer,  an accomplished, sharp as a tack squintern who is brought in to assist in a murder linked to fantasy football — which just happens to be one of her many areas of expertise. With a half century of work under her belt, Dr. Mayer is considered the world’s most experienced forensic anthropologist..."

You'll have to wait until the end of October for Betty to make her appearance. And no, they won't be renaming the series Old Bones. That would be wrong.

Meanwhile, here's the incredibly sappy promo Fox created for the show's upcoming season...

No More Anchor Babies!

Anchor babies. It's a term that's been tossed around like a hot potato early in this presidential season, especially among the Republican candidates.

It's the way they've been describing children born in this country to illegal immigrants.

Constitutionally, that grants the children automatic US citizenship, providing an "anchor" to which the parents will cling in hopes of being allowed to stay here.

Many Republicans say that has to stop, no matter what the Constitution says.

Finally, the folks at Funny or Die have found a way to explain why that should happen.

And not one moment too early...

Knock Me Over With a Feather

When the Ashley Madison scandal broke, a lot of people looked to Noel Biderman, the company's CEO who co-founded the "cheating" site with his wife, for answers.

In an interview that broke just this past weekend in which he was referred to as the King of Infidelity, he said that he and his wife did not practice the company motto: "Life is short. Have an affair." (The folks at Huffington Post Canada have the interview, and a video about it.)

In a 2013 interview, Amanda Biderman had this to say about what would happen if Noel cheated on her:
"I would be devastated if (Noel) did it to me. But I would not blame a website. Ashley Madison is not creating cheaters. It is servicing a need that is there, that exists. And unfortunately, it exists. It's sad.''

Well, guess whose emails got leaked as part of the data breach and have now been made public?

And guess who's allegedly been having affairs? None other than the CEO himself.

I wonder if Amanda has logged onto DivorceLawyer.com yet...?

"There's Been an Awakening"

The geekosphere erupted yesterday when the Disney folks released a teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It's all of 15 seconds, and available exclusively on Instagram.

And it doesn't really show anything new, except for a guy holding a blue light saber, going up against the guy with the red Game of Thrones-style broadsword light saber.

Which prompted all sorts of discussions and theories that will keep the Star Warriors busy until the next teaser trailer.

Check it out.

The Most Unlikely Duet of All

Taylor Swift sold out five shows in Los Angeles.

Throughout the run, she brought up a bunch of her friends to sing with her, to the delight of all in attendance.

Folks like Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake and Lisa Kudrow.

Yes, Lisa Kudrow.

She joined Taylor on stage to sing "Smelly Cat," a song she sang as Phoebe on Friends.

Not only did Taylor know the song, so did the crowd.

Check it out.

The End of SuM&Mer

I'm not in any hurry to get to fall, but apparently, the M&M people are.

They just announced their newest flavor, and it has "fall" written all over it.

New Pumpkin Spice Latte M&Ms, featuring the brown M&M on the packages wearing a scarf and holding a cup of latte.

I'm sorry, it's too early.

Take them back, M&M people!

Just another month. That's all I ask. One. More. Month!

Meanwhile,watch this hilariously awkward amateur food-tasting review about the new M&Ms posted to YouTube at the beginning of the week...

Space Oddity in Space

File this in your #TBT drawer: it's a video from a couple of years ago. I missed it, maybe you did too.

Astronaut Chris Hadfield pulled a tour aboard the International Space Station in 2013.

He was known as being media-savvy, steadily tweeting and doing other entertaining things.

Like this little gem: performing David Bowie's "Space Oddity" in space.

He tweaked the lyrics a bit - since space travel has changed a bit since Bowie recorded the song in 1969.

The floating guitar and the floating singer really make this work.

And Chris has a pretty decent voice.

Ashley Madison, the TV Show?

One of the biggest data breaches going these days is the one involving AshleyMadison.com.

That's the site where you can sign up and arrange an extra-marital affair if you're so inclined.

Like they say, "Life is short. Have an affair."

Now, a team of Hollywood producers has revealed they're working on a fictionalized show based on the website, about a single mom who launches the site as a way to make ends meet.

Why now and why this, you wonder? “Anytime 30 million people are doing anything, it becomes worthy of a real discussion,” one of the producers told US Weekly.

So, let's see if this ever makes it to air. The show is tentatively titled Thank You Ashley Madison.

Meanwhile, the folks at Entertainment Tonight talked about what the breached data shows about the least- and most-faithful states in the USA.

You might be surprised!

"See a Bus, Don't Move"

Deva Dalparto runs a web and YouTube site called MyLifeSuckers.com, dedicated to the moms of the world.

But you don't have to be a mom, or even a parent, to enjoy the videos and blogs she posts.

Her latest - just in time for Back to School Season - is "Bus, Don't Move," a parody of the 80s hit, "Bust a Move."

It's pretty funny, and it also carries an important safety message to motorists: when you see a school bus, don't move.
