Craig Ferguson was in a flirty mood last night when Jennifer Love Hewitt stopped by to talk about her show The Client List. He admitted that he couldn't keep his eyes off her cleavage, and then moved on to talk about the steamy subject matter of her show. Jennifer didn't seem to mind the advances, but when Craig asked her if she ever gets embarrassed playing a prostitute, she admitted that there are days when she "feels like a real hooker." "Some days I'll have six massages in a day," she revealed. Watch Jennifer talk about her demanding new acting gig now.
30 Rock's season finale aired last week, and it's official that the next season will be its last. We caught up with Jane Krakowski, who plays Jenna Maroney, the narcissistic actress engaged to her male impersonator. In addition to her work on 30 Rock, Jane's using her comedic talent for Best Night Ever, an upcoming vignette series for NBC. She'll star alongside Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic. We had a chance to talk to Jane, and she reflected on what she's learned from 30 Rock and even took a guess at what Jenna would make of the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon. Read on.
TrèsSugar: The S&M erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey is a bestseller and being made into a movie. Do you think Jenna would find it tame?
Jane Krakowski: I'm sure Jenna is buying the rights already to play the role. Everybody's reading that book. I haven't read it yet, but I see it in everyone's hands.
TS: Have you learned anything from your 30 Rock character over the years?
JK: I think my big lesson is to probably not do anything that Jenna does. So whatever she does, do the opposite. You might be better off. But that's the fun part about playing someone like her. You can be as outrageous as possible and get away with it within our structure that is TGS and 30 Rock, so there are so many things that the character has done over the seasons where I'm like, "Really? Are you sure we're going to be able to do this and get away with this?" And in that world and the blanket that is Tina Fey's genius it always seems to be alright. I will trust her wherever she sends me.
TS: Who is your favorite couple on the show?
JK: Well of course I'm thrilled Jenna has taken one step toward being humane by getting engaged. Although, Paul being a wonderful man it's (still) the most narcissistic wedding that could possibly happen, because she's marrying a male impersonator of her. I've always enjoyed Liz Lemon's relationships. I loved when Michael Sheen was on the show. I really adored him. I think her current relationship with the character of Criss is really a great one.
TS: In your latest role in NBC's TV vignettes series titled Best Night Ever, you play a tarot card reader. What would you hope the cards hold for Jenna?
JK: Wow. I sort of wish the tarot card reader would tell me that 30 Rock is not ending after 13 episodes next season. We found out that it's official that we're only going to be doing 13 more. It's been the greatest experience.
She may be Maxim's hottest woman alive, but model Bar Refaeli told Conan O'Brien last night that men rarely approach her. But that may change after last night, since Bar told the talk show host that she'd go for a forward guy, even if he uses a cheesy pickup line on her. Other than boldness, Bar also admits she likes guys with good teeth. Who knew there was such a thing as a teeth fetish? Watch the funny interview now!
On his daytime talk show yesterday, Anderson Cooper chatted with "human Barbie" Sarah Burge but couldn't stomach the Brit mom — who's spent $500K on plastic surgery — for long before kicking her off the show early. After talking to her about giving her 15-year-old daughter Botox, the breast implant vouchers she gave her 7-year-old, and the photos that were released of her daughter on a stripper pole, Anderson had had his fill of crazy. He called her "dreadful" and then ended the interview early. Watch the clip now, in which the plastic mom tries to justify why her teenage daughter needed Botox to be like Beyoncé.
With a month remaining before Pixar's first female heroine, Merida, comes to theaters in Brave, Luxo has released a little gift to tide us over until the June 22 opening day: a new clip from the movie.

Watch Fergus, Merida, and the triplet princes recount the king's Scottish legend below.
President Obama came on The View today to talk hot topics, specifically gay marriage. The ladies on the show made for supportive hosts, as even the most conservative of the bunch, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, has voiced support for equal marriage rights in the past. Even so, Elisabeth challenged the president to explain how his position of letting the states define marriage differs from Mitt Romney's. She said, "at this point, you both said leave it to the states to decide." Obama was ready to respond, saying, "Elisabeth, that's actually not true," pointing out that Mitt Romney favors a federal constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between a man and a woman. Obama also promised that gay marriage would provide a big contrast between him and his GOP rival. Watch the clip, and tell us if you think Obama's smart to make gay marriage a campaign issue.
The Bachelorette was back last night, and while the franchise is always trying to top itself in crazy, this season has a more mellow tone. Taking cues from the overly polite Southern belle star, single mom, and Bachelor vet Emily Maynard, the show has moved to her hometown of Charlotte, NC, and brought on some men who seem like they'll try a little harder to look like nice guys. Of course, there were cheesy gimmicks; I still can't figure out why one guy brought an ostrich egg. But at least one bachelor, Doug, won some sweet points and the first impression rose by bringing a letter from his 12-year-old son.
In all we met one pretty-mild villain, a luxury brand consultant who came in on a helicopter and said he's changing his personality to be "down to earth." Seemed pretty tame compared to "winning" Courtney from Ben's season or evil Bentley from Ashley's. Emily even got rid of a singer/songwriter who could have provided the looking-for-fame story line, and the upcoming scenes from this season of The Bachelorette weren't as dramatic as they usually are. Since Emily is the first mom to hand out the roses, I'm thinking producers vetted this batch of guys for more than making good TV. Do you think I'm right, or do you expect more unstable, yet entertaining antics to come? Watch Emily tear up while reading the letter from Doug's son and tell me what you think.
Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James came on The View today to talk with the women about her hit erotic series. The author blushed through much of the segment, as Sherri Shepherd admitted that the book is giving her own sex life a jolt. Sherri said reading Fifty Shades of Grey made her think, "I might want to try some of this stuff with my husband." Watch Whoopi, Joy, Sherri, and E.L. James have an honest and pretty entertaining chat about the book's impact.

Last night on Conan, Joel McHale dished on what it was like to film his naked pool-playing scene on Community. Joel got emotional talking about the revealing shoot, especially when discussing wearing the very flimsy "dance belt" in lieu of underwear.
