The Time Jerry Bruckheimer Made January Jones Do an Awkward Table Dance to 'Kiss' by Prince

"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.

"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!]

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!]
