"It was one of the worst moments in my entire life," Jones says. "It was an audition for Coyote Ugly, my second audition ever." The anecdote comes courtesy of Hollywood Reporter which convened a beautiful white women roundtable so that Emmy Rossum, January Jones, Claire Danes, Mireille Enos, Julianna Margulies, and Kyra Sedgwick could sit down for a lady-chat. Among the revelations: Jones loved her Mad Men fat suit, Margulies's leading-lady schedule makes her understand why Judy Garland ate all the pills, and Enos was terrified of kissing Brad Pitt.

Martin Short continues to be a preternaturally gracious doll about Kathie Lee Gifford's recent gaffe (Kathie Lee Gaffer? Did we do that one yet?), in which she asked him a bunch of questions about how he keeps the romance alive with his not-alive wife. "On live television, people make mistakes," Short said. "There's no ill will intended. It's nice to aspire to be kind of elegant." Also, in an unrelated but totally true story, one time I met Kathie Lee Gifford and she pulled the front of my dress out and yelled "JIMMY HOFFA? ARE YOU IN THERE?" into my cleavage. [E!]

Jurors find John Edwards not guilty on one count of corruption, but Edwards has the tact to convict himself on a million counts of being hella gross: "While I do not believe that I did anything illegal, or even thought I was doing anything illegal, I did an awful, awful lot that was wrong," Edwards said. "There is no one else responsible for my sins." [People]

Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, says that the two are "not enemies," despite his allegations that "Raymond (née Foster) is trying to keep him from seeing their sons, 4-year-old Usher V and 3-year-old Naviyd, and that one day when he was dropping off the kids she followed him to his car and spit on his current girlfriend." Usher is asking for joint custody. [E!]

I F'ing love January Jones. I love that she is perceived as an Ice Queen, that she refused to out the baby's father, and I love her delicate Betty. If I was blonde I would be Emma Frost for Halloween (and whenever else it was appropriate).

Is anyone following The Killing? Mirielle is great on it, all of the acting is stellar (particularly Rosie's father, give him work now!), it's too bad the storyline is going the way it is.

I don't understand how anyone could love Kanye West in that way. Kim is gorgeous and she seems sweet enough, so I get her, but Kanye seems insufferable?

I have heard some crazy shit about Usher, but as long as he doesn't harm women (or people), I want him to just sing all the songs Chris Brown does currently so we can be done with Chris. Usher is a better dancer anyway.
