Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Up for This Week’s ‘Mix’!

Who says?  We do.

And if we had a third thumb (disgusting as that would be), we’d put it up, too.

Because this isn’t just any old edition of The Mix. It’s one that answers such all-important questions as:

Homosexuality "could happen to anybody. It could happen to a ball player, it could happen to a cop, a detective – it could happen to a mobster,” says Joseph.

Homosexuality "could happen to anybody. It could happen to a ball player, to a cop . . . it could happen to a mobster,” says Joseph.

—Why Frasier star Jane Leeves feels cable TV’s the only place to be these days – and what she’ll be doing in that “racier” realm.

—How the gay community reacted to Joseph Gannascoli’s portrayal of gay mobster Vito Spatafore, according to The Sopranos star himself.

—Did Cheetah Girls star Adrienne Bailon try to cheat her way to superstardom – by leaking nude photos of herself onto the Internet?

—Why pals of former pop princess Deborah Gibson thought she’d bomb in her most recent stage outing – the lead in an L.A. production of The King and I.

—How tough-guy actor Robert Davi, in his first outing as a director, managed to reign in his stars, Peter Bogdanovich and Chazz Palminteri – both of whom are veteran directors.

So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!


Jane Leeves: Forget Network Television. Cable’s Where It’s At!

She first caught viewers’ eyes as “Marla the virgin” on NBC’s Seinfeld.

Then she rocketed to fame as Daphne Moon on NBC’s Frasier.

So you’d think Jane Leeves would give network TV a bit more respect.

No longer a virgin to cable TV.

Jane: No longer a virgin to cable TV.

But like many an actor these days, Jane just can’t abide the plethora of reality programming that’s pushed upon America night after night.

Instead, she prefers cable – and isn’t shy about telling BlogTalkRadio all about it.

Today on TV Talk at 6 p.m. ET, Jane chats with host Shaun Daily about playing Alizee Dufresne on the hit USA series, The Starter Wife.

“There’s so much reality on the networks that cable is the place to go now.  They’re doing more cutting-edge stuff . . . USA, TNT – all those places have terrific shows right now,” says the British beauty.

“It’s really the only place they’re doing [scripted dramas]. It’s just a great opportunity, especially for women. They seem to be writing all these great parts for women. And I think that’s sort of the future.”
