Lisa Rinna Talks Casting Couch
Lisa Rinna has a new book out and a new reality television show, Harry Loves Lisa, on TV Land. While promoting the book, Rinna has dished the dirt on the time she was proposition as young actress during the casting of a television show. She tells Rob Shuter of PopEater, “I lost a role on a BIG TV series because I wouldn't bend over a chair in a producer’s office for just a quickie. 'Just pull your panties down and bend over and the role is yours,' he said to me.” Years later, during her years on Melrose Place, Rinna bumped into the producer, took him aside when he came over to congratulate her, and said, “I know everyone in this town and if you ever do what you did to me again to anyone else I will tell everyone your dirty secret.” So far her famously puffy lips have stayed sealed.

Courtney Cox and David Arquette Call it Quits
Courtney Cox and David Arquette have split. The couple has been separated for “several months.” TMZ is reporting that the estranged couple made the announcement today because photos of Arquette with another woman recently surfaced. The pair released a joint statement today saying, “We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go though this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together.” Cox and Arquette were married in 1999 and have a six-year-old daughter together. The couple met while working on the horror film Scream and are both set to star in the fourth installation of the franchise due out next spring. [TMZ]
Want to Name Drew Brees' Kid?
The New Orleans Saints quarterback isn't sure what to name his child, but isn't afraid to ask a few thousand complete strangers for help. Brees used Twitter to say ""My wife is due any day now with baby boy #2. We have a few names picked out but haven't decided yet. Looking for "b" names. Suggestions? #fb" How bout "Bush"? That way if he grows up to be a football stud he can attend USC and help get the Bush name back on the Heisman Trophy. [NOLA.com]
