Afternoon Delight: Rosanne Barr’s new NBC show, Lea Michele to guest mentor on “The Glee Project”

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday Mischa Barton! Remember when Barton got it on with a blondish Olivia Wilde in The O.C.? Good times.

Underworld’s Kate Beckinsale is on the cover of Angeleno magazine. Beckinsale looks lovely in Black Swan-esque attire but I prefer her in Selene’s leather cat suit.

The one and only Susan Sarandon and Arrested Development’s Judy Greer teamed up for the comedy Jeff Who Lives at Home, due in theaters March 16.

Madonna and her minions cast took to the red carpet for last night’s New York City premiere of her film W.E.

NBC has just picked up Rosanne Barr’s new comedy Downwardly Mobile. Barr will executive produce and star in the show about a "proprietor of a mobile home park and surrogate mother to all of the people who live there during a challenging economic time." Why don’t they just call it Rosanne Loses Her Lottery Winnings and pick up right where her show from the 1990s left off?

Glee’s Lea Michele has signed on to be a guest mentor on the Season 2 premiere of The Glee Project. (Dear contestants, If you want to win, do whatever Michele says and kiss her pretty little ass! Love, Bridget.)

A group of LGBT British students sat down and discussed their first hand experiences with bullying and homophobia, including one lesbian who was forced to use the male restroom by her P.E. teacher.

As if we didn’t already love her enough, Grey’s Anatomy star Jessica Capshaw recently provided some support to a fan on Twitter:

LGBT advocate and comedian Kathy Griffin will be performing on February 3 and 4 at The Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, CA.

Tomorrow morning tune into ABC’s The View for an interview with Albert Nobb star Glenn Close. (I love you, Glenn!)

Photo of the Day!

Cynthia Nixon showed off her shiny round head on this morning’s Live with Kelly. Nixon shaved her locks to star in the Broadway production of Wit, a play about a professor who undergoes treatment for cancer. Kudos to Nixon! If I shaved my head I would look like a pumpkin, and not a sexy one.
