Legendary performer Cher was joined by a room full of big name celebs including Betty White, Ellen DeGeneres, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Joshua Jackson, Kim Wayans, Sara Gilbert and Jason Mraz joined the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles!
The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and the issues that affect their lives. The GLAAD Media Awards also fund GLAAD’s work to amplify stories of LGBT people and issues that build support for equality.
Cher surprised her son, Chaz Bono, by joining Bono’s stepmother, Rep. Mary Bono Mack, in presenting him with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award. The special honor is presented to an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality.
In her remarks, Cher praised her son, “I’m here because Chaz has the most courage of almost anyone I know.”
It’s only been one day since Betty White jumped on the social networking bandwagon – and she already has over 150 thousand followers!
The Golden Girl pulled a Beyonce and Madonna, joining Twitter to promote her newest venture, her new NBC show, “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers.” She even poked some fun at “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest:
Get ready to laugh with “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” tonight at 8pm!

On Monday (March 21) TV Land announced that the network is moving forward with three sitcoms – two new series and a renewal for “Retired at 35.” These sitcoms will join the successful sitcom starring Betty White “Hot in Cleveleand,” which is now up to a 24 episode order for season three.
The first of TV Land’s newest shows marks the television return of “The Nanny’s” Fran Drescher, who will star alongside John Michael Higgins (“Best in Show”), Tichina Arnold (“Everybody Hates Chris”) and Rita Moreno (“West Side Story”) in “Happily Divorced.”
Following Drescher’s new sitcom is “The Exes” (working title) starring Donald Faison (“Scrubs”) , Wayne Knight (“Seinfeld,” “Hot in Cleveland”), David Alan Basche (“Law and Order,” “The Starter Wife”) and Kristen Johnston (“3rd Rock from the Sun”). The sitcom is anticipated to premiere on June 15.
Additionally, TV Land has renewed its hit sitcom “Retired at 35” starring George Segal, Jessica Walter and Johnathan McClain for a second season, which is scheduled to premiere along with “The Exes” in winter.
So far “Happily Divorced,” “The Exes,” and “Retired at 35” have all been picked up for 10 episodes each.

Which of TV Land’s newest shows appeal to you?
Pop Princess Britney Spears does not do interviews (okay, rarely!) but she just sat down with OUT Magazine for a Q&A that is surprisingly insightful!
Dig in, pop stars…

On a bright white Mercedes convertible.
When was the first time you saw a Britney Spears drag queen?
In New Orleans singing “Slave 4 U.” I almost died!

Madonna. No question. She is an amazing entertainer. Besides Madonna, I also admire Sarah Jessica Parker’s career and her shoe collection.

No. All of my songs are f–ing amazing.
My idea of hell is…

If you hadn’t become a superstar, what career do you think you would have chosen?
I was in seventh grade and it was career day and I remember thinking that I wanted to be an entertainment lawyer. I always knew I would be in this business somehow. I think this path worked out way better.

My mom said when you have a bad day, eat ice cream. That’s the best advice

I only have eyes for men.

The best part of being famous is…

Giving up your privacy.
How does the thought of turning 30 later this year make you feel?
I’m excited to be out of my 20s.
How do you feel about plastic surgery?
When it’s time to pull and tuck, I’m sure I will consider it.
I first learned about sex…
When I was 12 years old. From my mom. I was confused and disgusted.
Kissing Madonna was…
You’ve been married twice — once for only 55 hours. How do you feel about gay marriage?
I think everyone should be treated equally.
Lady Gaga is…
Christina Aguilera is…
Britney Spears is…
Proving that age is no handicap, 89-year-old Betty White won big at last night’s 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards Show in Los Angeles.
Beating out the likes of Tina Fey and Jane Lynch, everyone’s favorite “Golden Girl” won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her role in TV Land’s critically-acclaimed hit “Hot in Cleveland.” In the show, Betty plays the part of a sassy, opinionated residential caretaker to perfection.
“This [is] the biggest surprise I’ve ever had in this business,” White told the audience who rose to their feet in her honor. Betty jokingly said in her speech, “You didn’t applaud when I turned 40!”
We think Betty’s win is a positive step towards eliminating ageism in Hollywood. She proves that there is a place for older actresses among all the young, fresh faces.
Just one year shy of 90, Betty White continues to be an inspiration to all. Do you think Betty’s win will leave the spotlight on more mature actresses?
