Actress Kirstie Alley turns 60 today, January 12, 2011 and we wish her a very happy one. Kirstie Alley is a big Prince fan and when I used to live in LA, I used to see her at all the Prince shows! For the non-Prince die-hards, here’s a fun fact: Kirstie Alley plays a reporter named Vanessa Bartholomew on Prince’s infamous “O(+>” album. She tries to get the elusive star to do an interview throughout the record and when she finally gets him to talk, he answers her questions very cryptically. What a surprise!

The Marriage Ref set.
So by now, episodes of Jerry Seinfeld’s latest project The Marriage Ref are already airing on TV, but if you are like me and have no time or interest for TV – you might be asking yourself – what in the world is this show about? Each week, 3 celebrity panelists look at a particular issue in a married couple’s life and then they vote on who is in the right. The show has been universally panned by critics, but the saving grace is that because Jerry Seinfeld is who he is, he commands major star power to infuse life into a really dull premise. I went to a taping of the show on March 15, 2010 and whilst I’ve signed a confidentiality agreement, I cannot talk about what happens on the show. What I will say is that Kirstie Alley, Sheryl Crow and Jimmy Fallon were the guests. Also, as soon as the show was over, the set producer allowed us to take photos! That was a nice surprise to an otherwise long evening.
