Thank Gos, he's back. Last night, the man, the legend, Ryan Gosling won us over yet again with a quirky tale of Girl Scout cookies on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Ryan shared how a childhood experience inspired him to buy hundreds of Girl Scout cookie boxes outside a grocery store a few years back. After realizing just how many cookies he had purchased, he decided to toss them out his car window to unsuspecting strangers. Unfortunately, the act of good will came across more "creepy cookie guy" than Santa Claus, as Ryan explained. And he joked that bystanders were probably wondering what happened to the Girl Scouts and why this guy had all their cookies. Watch the clip now to see Ryan Gosling tell the story as only Ryan Gosling can.
On the season premiere of The Bachelor, we were introduced to the 25 hopeful women vying for Sean's heart — plus a familiar face who wanted the chance to get to know him better. It was Kacie B. from Ben Flajnik's season, who Sean says he met at a charity event where the two hit it off as "friends." (Hmmm . . .) We were happy to see the fan favorite come back for a second chance at love, and we were especially grateful to have her on-point one-liners back, too.
When a Fifty Shades of Grey superfan had a little too much to drink and started dancing in doorways, Kacie B. had a bit of veteran advice: "She just needs a lot of water. Water, people." Check out the full clip now to see how Kacie B. and the rest of the girls reacted to Ashley P., plus her awkward interaction with Sean, who called her "Fifty Shades of Drunk."
It was a family affair on the set of director Judd Apatow's new movie, This Is 40, as his two daughters and wife, Leslie Mann, star in the film, out today. But actor Paul Rudd took Judd's place as the husband and dad in the movie, which put Judd in a potentially awkward situation: directing his wife to kiss another man. Chelsea Handler got Judd to discuss the subject with humor last night on Chelsea Lately, along with how it didn't take much to get his daughters to actually have an argument on camera. Watch now.

President Obama offered the prayers of the nation last night in Newtown, CT, where the community mourned the deaths of children and teachers from Sandy Hook Elementary. In addition to sharing the grief he felt as a father himself, President Obama did not shy away from saying he would do what he can as president to stop future mass shootings, declaring: "If there is even one step we can take to save another child, or another parent, or another town, from the grief that has visited Tucson, and Aurora, and Oak Creek, and Newtown, and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg before — then surely we have an obligation to try." The president said he "will use whatever power this office holds" to prevent future tragedies, and he might have some help from other lawmakers. Democrats in Congress are already asking for laws to ban assault weapons, and there have been calls for a national commission to look into mass shootings. Watch the clip from the president's speech at the memorial and weigh in: do you think this horrific massacre will spark a debate in the US?
For a show that ends in a proposal, the Bachelor franchise isn't so successful at getting couples to actually walk down the aisle. But for Bachelorette Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum, yes meant yes, and the two actually got married a couple of weeks ago. Can you believe it?! As part of their honeymoon, apparently, Ashley and J.P. stopped by The View today to talk about why they worked, while other couples haven't. Check it out, before the made-for-TV wedding airs on Sunday.
Anne Hathaway has been garnering a lot of award buzz for her performance in the upcoming musical-turned-movie Les Misérables, but she had to address some unwanted attention on Today this morning regarding Monday's "wardrobe malfunction." Anne had a compromising photo taken of herself — minus underwear — getting out of her car at the New York premiere of the film, but she had a very classy response when Matt Lauer began his interview with "seen a lot of you lately." The actress called the incident "sad," adding, "I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment, and rather than delete it and do the decent thing, sells it. And I'm sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies the sexuality of unwilling participants." Watch the interview now, and let us know in the comments what you think of Anne's response.
Comedian and actress Marietta Sirleaf — known as Retta — cracks us up every week playing Donna on Parks and Recreation (not to mention her hilarious Twitter feed). And last night she brought her sense of humor to Conan, telling a story about her favorite type of music. Even though her TV character is cousins with '90s R&B singer Ginuwine, Retta explained that she's actually more of an opera fan than an R&B fan. She then told Conan about the time an older couple stereotypically assumed she was listening to rap in her car, but they were in for a surprise when she rolled down her window. Watch the funny clip now!

When Beauty and the Beast needed a new castle, they called on HGTV's House Hunters International to help. The couple is looking for a place with space for Belle to store her books in a location where people won't be scared away by the Beast's appearance. They've paired it down to three castles. Will they choose the place with the large living space and a place to keep glass slippers? The authentic seaside location? Or castle number three, which has a library and enchanted dishes?
Anyone who spends hours on the couch watching recorded episodes of the hit show will recognize the soothing voice-over and house-hunting jargon in this dead-on parody made by Disney and HGTV to promote the recent additions to New Fantasyland at Disney World. Watch and tell us: do you think Belle and the Beast chose the right castle?
