Two of my favorite New York men sat down today on Anderson Live to discuss People magazine's newly crowned Sexiest Man Alive, Channing Tatum. Host Anderson Cooper, who just happened to watch Magic Mike recently, weighed in: "He's a really good dancer. I guess he used to be a stripper at one point. He's also married which I hadn't realized. He's like a young married guy, he seems like a good guy." But as guest cohost Andy Cohen pointed out, Channing had to share some of the spotlight in the issue. "Have you seen this? 50 Shades of Grey?" He asked Anderson. "Look at Silver Fox. It's a scale of gray-haired people basically and you are next to Ted Danson," Andy said. Watch Anderson's adorable reaction.
The third time's the charm for this weekend's Saturday Night Live host, Anne Hathaway. The actress is taking to the stage with musical guest Rihanna, and according to the promos, we might be in for a slightly more introspective episode than we're used to. Hathaway and her promo sidekick, Jason Sudeikis, ponder the bigger questions in life, like who exactly is the "they" in "they say," and, ultimately, whose short 'do is sexier?

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are all over the press circuit this week, which can signify only one thing: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is near. The conclusion to the series hits theaters on Nov. 16, and Robert Pattinson stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night for a quick chat about make-out scenes on set and his favorite part about shooting the saga. Hint: it's probably not the answer you're expecting. Check out the video to hear his answer!
"If I have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is, I'm going to lose my mind," Tina Fey joked last night at the Center For Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala. We hear you, Tina! We were incredulous when candidate Todd Akin said "legitimate rape" won't cause pregnancy, or when fellow GOP candidate Richard Mourdock outdid him by saying, "I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."
Last night, Tina said, "I wish we could have an honest and respectful dialogue about these complicated issues, but it seems like we can't right now." She was also joined by Stanley Tucci, who encouraged the crowd to support the Draw the Line campaign and the Bill of Reproductive Rights, which would guarantee women the right to affordable reproductive health services including pregnancy care, contraception, and abortion. Earlier this month, we spoke to fellow Draw the Line campaign supporter Sarah Silverman. Sarah told us that "women's reproductive rights and being able to be in control of your own body. I think that's, to me, a very nonpartisan issue." Watch Tina Fey address the group at the Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala, and weigh in on whether you support a Bill of Reproductive Rights.
Earlier this week, Indiana's GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock had a Todd Akin moment when asked if abortions should be allowed in cases of rape. He said, "I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen."
While Romney has stood by his endorsement of Mourdock, he did tell Anderson Cooper last night that his continued support hinges on Mourdock apologizing. He said, "If he apologizes and says he misspoke and he was wrong and he asks the people to forgive him, then obviously I'd be the first . . . in the years that I've been around, I've made a few [mistakes] and I've asked for people's understanding and forgiveness when I own up to it. It's when you don't own up to it when people will not believe you."
Obama was harsher in his response to Mourdock's controversial comments last night, telling Jay Leno, "I don't know how these guys come up with these ideas. . . . Rape is rape. It is a crime. And so, these various distinctions about rape don't make too much sense to me, don't make any sense to me." He then added, "This is exactly why you don't want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, making decisions about women's healthcare decisions." We agree!
Watch Obama talk about Mourdock's rape comments and women's healthcare rights in this Tonight Show clip below.
"When you know, you know," so goes the saying about finding the person you want to marry, but Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari isn't buying it. Last night on Conan, the comedian said he's skeptical when friends marry after only knowing each other for a year and a half. And he uses a sweater metaphor to prove his point. Watch and see if you agree.
Last night, President Barack Obama went on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart for a mostly serious discussion of this election season's issues and how these last four years have gone. But it started off with a little teasing from Jon on what many (including Obama himself) consider a subpar first debate performance. Jon showed the president two photos of his wife, Michelle Obama, after the debates — one in which she's smiling and another where she doesn't look happy — and asked him which debate each one was from. Obama was a good sport, responding with a chuckle and a "Cute. Cute, Jon." But Obama was clearly ready to get down to business, mentioning how his social successes have included repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," which discriminated military personnel based on their sexuality. This got cheers from the Daily Show audience, filled last night with female military veterans. And on his job of preventing things that don't work, he added, "You want a president in the oval office who's going to say, 'No, we're not going to amend our Constitution for the first time to restrict rights for gay and lesbian couples.'" See what else Obama said on the late-night show now!
Mitt Romney didn't join his wife on The View today, but she was happy to explain how Mitt's position on abortion has evolved from pro-choice as Massachusetts governor to pro-life today (if you want to have Mitt explain, read his pro-life pledge). Barbara Walters also asked Ann for her views, with Ann responding: "The good news is I'm not running for office and I don't have to say what I feel. But I am pro-life. I'm happy to say that." Ann's position also may have changed over the years, considering she cut a check to Planned Parenthood back in 1994. Watch her talk about the life/choice issue on The View now.
Last night on Saturday Night Live, Seth Meyers invited Arianna Huffington (played by Nasim Pedrad) to Weekend Update to discuss how Martha Raddatz did moderating the vice presidential debate last week. Nasim's Arianna answered that she loved seeing a woman moderator who was able to get VP Joe Biden and Paul Ryan to "put their penises away." But what really got us chuckling was when Seth brought up how Martha asked the men about abortion. After wondering aloud why Martha asked two men about a women's issue, Arianna responded, "If men could get pregnant, abortion clinics would be like Starbucks," adding that there would be two on every block, four in every airport, and the morning-after pill would come in different flavors like sea salt and cool ranch.

If you're concerned about all the recent comments being made against women and their health rights by some of our country's politicians — i.e. Missouri Rep. Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" remarks and Georgia Rep. Terry England's recent comparison of women to farm animals — you may want to sign the Bill of Reproductive Rights. This bill is at the heart of the Center For Reproductive Rights' Draw the Line campaign, and is meant to let Congress and the president know that "they must guarantee and protect reproductive rights as fundamental human rights and stop the attacks by politicians who want to take those rights away." A slew of celebrities have showed their support for the campaign, including famous ladies like Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman, Meryl Streep, Lisa Kudrow, and Kyra Sedgwick.
