Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki met up with their costars from The Big Bang Theory yesterday for a night of laughs and charity at the A Night at Sardi's gala in Beverly Hills. Kaley wore a strapless blue gown as she mingled with stars like Emmy Rossum, Jason Bateman, and Zachary Levi at the event. She got glammed up after sporting a more casual, but still chic, look when she celebrated Hollywood stylists at an event in LA last week. The Big Bang Theory cast and other funny actors and actresses typically perform skits during the event, which benefits the Alzheimer's Association. We were live on the scene last night, so be sure to check back for more of our red carpet coverage!
David Beckham sat courtside at the Lakers game in LA last night. He and pal Dave Gardner watched the home team lose against the Orlando Magic, but David was still full of smiles. He was greeted by players Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard and also signed his autograph for a young fan. David switched to the spectator role following an emotional sports event of his own. On Saturday, David played his last game with the LA Galaxy. They won the MLS Cup championship with support from David's whole family. Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz were all on hand to cheer on their dad and they celebrated together after the match with Victoria, who returned home from the UK with Harper later in the evening.
GQ rounded up some of Hollywood's hottest men in LA last night to celebrate its annual Men of the Year issue. Taylor Lautner broke from hanging with his new lady friend to suit up for the black carpet along with James Franco, who mentioned that his mustache is for a new role. James Marsden looked dapper too, and he stopped to chat with us about how he'd nominate his wife for Babe of the Year. That honor has already gone to Scarlett Johansson, who you think deserves props for her look about as much as her Sexiest Man Alive husband, Ryan Reynolds. Scarlett and Ryan both skipped yesterday's party, but some other honorees from People's latest list turned out. Kellan Lutz covered his abs in a plaid Simon Spurr, and True Blood stud Joe Manganiello was likewise dressed up.
The fun continued inside the Chateau Marmont for some loved-up couples like Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, Channing Tatum and his wife, Jenna Dewan, and the recently married Dave Annable and Odette Yustman. Krysten Ritter celebrated wrapping up work with Kate Bosworth on BFF & Baby by saying hello to Sam Page, of Gossip Girl and Mad Men, while Aziz Ansari could hardly contain his enthusiasm at chilling with Jesse Eisenberg. Twilight's Taylor practiced his flirting with Jaime King, as Boardwalk Empire's Michael Pitt stuck by his costar Steve Buscemi. James Franco spent a minute chatting with Mark Ruffalo, who told us on the way in that he's thankful this year for being employed as a relatively older actor. There's lots more to come on today's PopSugar Rush, so make sure to stay tuned!
Twilight stars Kellan Lutz and BooBoo Stewart posed with lovely ladies Christina Applegate, Alyssa Milano, and AnnaLynne McCord in LA yesterday at VH1's Do Something Awards. The evening honors young people committed to social change, which included the cast of Glee and Leonardo DiCaprio, though he missed out on the show since he's off promoting Inception in Japan. Jane Lynch played host for the night and kept the crowd laughing with sketches about good deeds she performs like reading Eat, Pray, Love to construction workers and doing charity work with Lindsay Lohan and Mother Teresa.
Dog lover Kellan was recognized for his efforts to help animals, and his girlfriend, AnnaLynne, was there to keep him company after her wild bikini birthday weekend in Las Vegas. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz cozied up together backstage while Megan Fox wore Brian Atwood and showed off her sparkly new big diamond wedding ring. Kristen Bell sported a short metallic dress on stage, and White Collar star Matt Bomer looked dreamy in Simon Spurr clothes.

It was a rainy green faux grass carpet for last night's seventh annual Global Green Pre-Oscars Party at Avalon in LA, which meant that many of the stars rushed in to keep from getting wet. Jessica Alba in a Viktor and Rolf dress and Cash Warren huddled close under their umbrella, only stopping to take a couple of photos while Joel and Benji Madden avoided the carpet almost entirely on their way into provide the evening's entertainment. James Cameron, whose Avatar is up for a bunch of awards at Sunday's Oscars and is touted for its environmental message, took cover under an enormous umbrella to grant a few interviews on his way into the bash, which supports a cause that is obviously important to him. The inclement weather expected this weekend may mean another rainy red carpet for the Academy Awards, something the stars are used to this award season after the downpour at the Golden Globes.
The networks have announced their fall schedules, but which of the series will actually be worth watching? Throughout the summer, as I watch the pilots, I'll be posting my first impressions. A lot can change before a show makes it to air, so these aren't comprehensive reviews, just quick thoughts on how the shows look now. Today's installment: the CBS comedy "The Big Bang Theory."
What's it about? Two super-nerds have their world shaken up when a hot girl moves in across the hall.
Who's in it? Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco
The good: It's a Chuck Lorre sitcom, which is a plus if you like his work ("Cybil," "Dharma and Greg," "Two and a Half Men"). Galecki and Parsons have a funny dude-chemistry. I chuckled a few times, which is more than I can say for a lot of classic laugh-track sitcoms these days.
The bad: The plot of the pilot involves the vapid blonde neighbor needing to use the guys' shower because hers is broken. She thus must stand around in a towel in their apartment. Meanwhile, the guys go to retrieve her TV from her meathed ex-boyfriend and end up literally getting pantsed. Let's just say the show isn't exactly subtle. Or deep.
Will I watch? Ehhhh. I might catch an episode here or there, but I have much higher hopes for NBC's mid-season "The IT Crowd" to fill my geeks-meet-hot-girl quota for the year.
