Happy hump day!
There is only one day left until the Grey’s Anatomy music event! The extremely anticipated episode features an extended musical fantasy playing out in the head of Callie (Sara Ramirez). Grey’s actor Kevin McKidd, who plays Dr. Owen Hunt, spoke to People about Ramirez’s powerful pipes. “Sara Ramirez – she’s pretty amazing! I mean, off the chart. She’s a Tony Award winner for a reason, and the rest of us bask in her shadow.”
Actor Patrick Demsey (McDreamy) also raved about Ramirez and the Grey’s cast, “It’s really quite moving when you hear Sara’s voice and Kevin’s voice. Even Justin Chambers sings beautifully, and Eric Dane does a great job. So it’s really nice to see them have a moment to shine in a different way and hopefully entertain the fans and keep it fresh.” Songs from the episode will be available tomorrow morning on iTunes (along with Ramirez’s own EP), and I will be singing them all weekend!
The Bravo Network has announced that it will renew a few of their biggest hits, including Top Chef: Just Desserts, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills; Bethenny Ever After, The Real Housewives of Atlanta and, most importantly, Tabatha’s Salon Takeover! If you haven’t seen this fascinating show, it stars out hair master Tabatha Coffey, a demanding perfectionist (and self-proclaimed B.I.T.C.H.) who takes over struggling privately-owned salons and whips them into shape. Coffey is getting an additional Bravo show as well, Tabatha Takes Over. In it, Coffey will “hit the road again – but this time she’s taking over more than just salons.” She’s taking their souls! Just kidding, but I am proposing that Tabatha take over my student loans.
Foul-mouthed (I love that term) comedian Sarah Silverman will guest star on CBS’s The Good Wife. Silverman will play “the owner of a sexually explicit website devoted to connecting married people who are looking to have affairs.” Scandalous! In the episode, Silverman’s character will be sued by a woman who believes her husband was murdered as a result of using the website. Silverman turns to Alicia (Julianna Margulies) for legal help. She should really contact Gloria Allred instead!
Linda Perry dished to Rolling Stone about her new band Deep Dark Robot (her first band since she quit 4 Non Blondes in 1995), their new EP, 8 Songs About A Girl and how she never really liked 4 Non Blondes. (I prefer brunettes, myself.) Perry’s new songs are very personal and, of course, were inspired by a woman. “Basically, I fell in love with a woman and really quick it turned into an emotional tsunami. She ended up being an incredible muse, even though things didn’t work out between us.” Sound familiar?
This evening on CNN’s Showbiz Tonight it’s all about flexisexuality! What is flexisexuality? (Me, during my high school cheerleading years.) The UK’s Daily Mail described the new term as, “people who have a sexual preference but refuse to be bound by it.” Watch and learn more tonight at 11 pm on CNN.
The View’s Whoopi Goldberg gave some love to Lindsay Lohan during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Goldberg said, “I think she will find her way. I like her. I like her work.” I like Lindsay too. It’s nice to hear celebrities supporting one another.

Just one more reason why Easter is my favorite holiday!
