TV Guide Network Shakes Up Red Carpet Hosts: Rinna Out
TV Guide Network is shaking up its red carpet coverage, replacing hosts Lisa Rinna and Joey Fatone with DANCING WITH THE STARS judge Carrie Ann Inaba and The Bachelor host Chris Harrison.
Rinna and Fatone joined TV Guide Network in August 2007 as the faces of the network's red carpet coverage in Hollywood. As the channel looks to revamp under its new ownership of Lionsgate and JP Morgan, it is seeking to change its public face. That strategy includes acquiring off-network series such as Ugly Betty, developing original programming, which TV Guide Network President Ryan O'Hara says is forthcoming, and changing up its talent roster.

Otalia: Why That Damned Kiss Is So Important
Lana M. Nieves writes: "The kiss is important for so many reasons. It's important because we still have a don't ask/don't tell policy in our military. It's important because young people who question their sexuality harm/kill themselves at an alarming rate. It's important because children being raised by same-sex parents have a right to see that they're every bit as normal as everyone else. It's important because there is so little in the way of happy endings in real life these days, that we need every reminder we can get that they are possible, and not just for Christian, white, upwardly-mobile, heterosexuals."
