This week the box crushes on one of TV's most entertaining actresses.
Marcia Cross has been a guest-spot staple since she made her
first television appearance in 1985, but she's best known for playing very different roles on Desperate Housewives and Melrose Place.

If you are reading this you clearly have access to the internet, and therefore you have most likely read something about Oprah Winfrey's weight gain confession. The jist is this: Oprah weighed 160 pounds two years ago, and now she weighs 200. She "confessed" to the weight gain for the January issue of O Magazine, and now the interwebs are buzzing.

More (rumored) news on the Twilight sequel now that Catherine Hardwicke is no longer the director. Nikki Finke's got an inside line that Summit has offered Chris Weitz the chance to direct New Moon - and potentially Eclipse, if both films could be made back-to-back. Weitz is the writer and director of About a Boy, producer and uncredited director of American Pie, and the director for The Golden Compass adaptation.
