Kaley Cuoco on Ryan Sweeting: I Want to Marry My Fiancé ‘Tomorrow’

You might be able to bend the laws of physics, but you can’t fight the laws of attraction, and The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco is eager to make things official with her fiancé, Ryan Sweeting.

“We’ve been planning, so hopefully early next year,” the actress told PEOPLE about a possible wedding date while recently attending her friend Haylie Duff’s The Real Girl’s Kitchen cookbook signing in Los Angeles.

“We don’t have an exact date, but I want to marry him tomorrow so I want to go as fast as possible.”

The actress, 27, added that no matter when the nuptials happen, there will be considerable planning involved on her part.

“He doesn’t care, and that’s what he keeps telling me,” she said with a laugh of Sweeting’s wedding-planning input. “He knows that I’ve been planning this in my brain for 25 years, so he’s not daring to get in there. He’s like, ‘Whatever you want!’ ”

Sweeting, 26, a professional tennis player, may not be picking out place settings, but he’s had one unexpected effect on his fiancée.

“[I’m] such a homemaker!” she says with a laugh. “I don’t know what happened. I got engaged and I’m in the kitchen every night making meals. I love it!”

‘Glee’ creator plans Cory Monteith tribute episode

FoxannouncedFriday that theGleepremiere will be delayed a week to Sept. 26 in the wake of star Cory Monteith’s death from an overdose on July 13.

“It’s hard to even explain how personally upsetting it is,” show creator Ryan Murphy tells E!’s Kristin Dos Santos. “His last words to me were, ‘I want to get better,’ and I always felt and continue to feel even in his death that he did, that he really wanted to fight it and he was humiliated and shamed.”

Murphy, who is grieving along with family, friends, cast members and fans, has been mulling how to address Monteith’s absence on the show.

“When you’re faced with something so sad and so shocking, what do you do? Do we cancel the show? Do we start shooting in January? What do we do?” he says in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “Ultimately, we decided the best thing for everyone is to get back to work and be around people who knew him and loved him so that everyone can grieve together.”

He says it also came down to Lea Michele, Monteith’s girlfriend. Murphy tells E! she “felt that the best thing for the cast and crew was to be together and to get back to work and be together every day and talk about our memories of him. So we decided to do that with Lea’s blessing and we’re going to go back to work and have grief counselors on the set for two weeks because people are really hurting.”

Murphy tells both outlets the plan is to pay tribute during the show’s third episode.

The first two episodes of season five, a long-planned Beatles tribute, has already been written and will need to be tweaked slightly.

After the third episode, Murphy plans for the show to take a break, go “off the air for awhile and take a hiatus.”

Murphy says Monteith’s Finn Hudson role will not be recast. “The right thing to do for the show, at least at this point, is to have that character pass. When we do the tribute episode to that character, we’ll have to do it in a way where the castmembers will not have to re-create feelings of grief that they’ve had this week — but do it in an upbeat way.”

‘Girls’ picked up by HBO for a third season

Lena Dunham can’t keep a secret! The star and executive producer of Girls told Alec Baldwin on his podcast that the Golden Globe-winning comedy will return for a third season.

“We’re starting season three at the end of March,” she’s heard telling Baldwin. “I’m so excited.”

Girls began its second season on Jan. 13, the same night it won the Golden Globe for best comedy series and best actress (Dunham). Girls delivered 1.6 million viewers across three airings compared to 1.1 million across two airings last year.

Dunham also hinted to Baldwin that they may make 12, as opposed to 10, episodes for the third season.

“I would love that,” she said. “I don’t want to like – I don’t have any desire in doing like, you know, a 22 episode – I don’t even understand how someone does the 22 episode marathon. But I do think that doing – I think that a little more would be just a little more storytelling real estate and it would be amazing. But you know, so I shoot four-and-a-half months out of the year, then I’m editing, then I’m doing press, then I’m writing, then I’m back.”

Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli divorcing after 11 years of marriage

Another celebrity marriage appears to be ending.

Jennie Garth, best known for her role on the original “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and Peter Facinelli, the actor who plays the adoptive patriarch of the Cullen family in the “Twilight” movies, confirmed today that they are splitting after 11 years of marriage.

As E! News reported, the couple released a joint statement that said, “While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”

No reason for the split was given. This is not the first time reports of a break-up have circulated. Last July, Perez Hilton reported that Facinelli, 38, and Garth, 39, were living apart, but other outlets said the rumor was false.

The timing of the pending divorce is eyebrow-raising, considering that Garth’s new reality show, “Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country” — which chronicles the family’s move to a California farm — is slated to debut next month on CMT. Presumably marital troubles will be part of the story line.

Facinelli — who brought one of the couple’s three daughters, Luca Bella, to last night’s “Hunger Games” premiere — wed Garth in 2001 at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Montecito, Calif., where two of Garth’s “90210” co-stars, Tori Spelling and Tiffani Thiessen, served as bridesmaids.

It was Facinelli’s first marriage and Garth’s second; she married musician Daniel B. Clark in 1994 and finalized a divorce from him in 1996, the same year she met Facinelli while filming a TV movie called “An Unfinished Affair.”

In addition to Luca, now 14, the pair has a 9-year-old (Lola) and a 5-year-old (Fiona).

Streep donates $10,000 in Davis’s honor to R.I. school

The morning after actress Meryl Streep walked off with an Oscar many bet would go to Viola Davis, Streep gave a cash-strapped school in Rhode Island a $10,000 donation in Davis’s honor, the school’s founder said on Tuesday.

Davis, 46, has been a champion for now-bankrupt Central Falls, Rhode Island, the town she grew up in and has herself donated cash to help keep the library open.

Her longtime friend and sometimes rival Streep, 62, in response to Davis’s cheerleading sent a $10,000 check to a local charter school, the Segue Institute for Learning, which faces closure.

The check arrived on Monday, the morning after Streep won the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady,” beating out front-runner Davis, who played a maid in “The Help.”

“We’ve just been screaming from the rooftops,” said Angelo Garcia, founder and director of operations at the school.

“We’re excited Meryl Streep has gotten the ball rolling for us, but we recognize there’s a long road ahead of us,” he said.

The school is currently located in a public building that’s slated to be sold because of financial difficulties in Central Falls, said Garcia, who has been friends with Davis since childhood.

It must buy the building or move to another location in the next 12 or 13 weeks, he said.

The donation from Streep’s Silver Mountain Foundation for the Arts – which the charity confirmed – will help the school start a capital campaign aimed at raising $1.2 million to buy and renovate the building and an adjacent community center, Garcia said.

Davis has “always kept us on her radar,” Garcia said, and the donation followed a conversation Davis had with Streep “about a little school started” by her longtime friend.

The school has more than 200 students this year and was expected to grow to 240 next year, he said.
