Et is with Julianne Hough in New York City when the "Dancing with the Stars" two-time champ passes out gift cards to random strangers. Of course, the question on everybody's mind is whether or not she will be returning to the dance competition in the fall. "I am definitely going to take one season off, either the spring or the fall," she tells Et. "We are working this out. It is not the end of the show, I'll be back. But I'm going to take a season off." The time off is for touring in support of her country music album, and she explains that she will be doing some dates on her own, but she is also looking forward to joining a big tour -- which one she can't tell us just yet because the deal isn't finalized. As to which celebs may join the show when it returns in January, »
Mike Ausiello of EW reports that TV's favorite mom Florence Henderson ("The Brady Bunch") will be guesting in the new year on "Samantha Who?" as the matriarch of the Newly clan. Though this showbiz vet has never been nominated for any major kudo, she could well pull off an Emmy nod in the guest actress in a comedy series category. After all, both her on-screen daughter Jean Smart and granddaughter Christina Applegate are past champs in this category — Smart twice for "Frasier" in 2000 and 2001 and Applegate for "Friends" in 2003. And even more tellingly, the most recent winners of this race have been women of a certain age — sixtysomething Kathryn Joosten »

Here we go again.
It's time for the annual "Dancing With the Stars" guessing game, with media outlets and bloggers spitting out names of potential contestants as they're supposedly "leaked" - and ABC refusing to confirm or deny who'll be hoofin' it when the new season premieres Sept. 22.
("We do not comment on casting," an ABC spokeswoman said yesterday - as expected.)
Some of the names being bandied about are familiar ones, including "Brady Bunch" star Florence Henderson, who was heavily rumored to be part of last season's "Dancing" crew (she even predicted she'd »

The news, broken by In Touch magazine, comes just three months after Braxton was forced to scrap a series of shows in Las Vegas following a health scare which led to hospitalisation.
Braxton, who suffers from heart condition pericarditis, checked into a hospital in Las Vegas in April after experiencing chest pains. She has yet to comment on her latest health scare.
A spokeswoman for ABC, the TV network behind the hit show, has refused to confirm the latest line-up reports.
The official cast will be revealed on 25 August and the new season of the dance competition will premiere in America on 22 September. »
He says, "It hurts me deeply that someone that I have loved and respected for so many years... would discuss overtly negative personal opinions about my marriage in a public forum. I can only hope these recent comments are an aberration."
Henderson agreed to "counsel" the couple when Knight and Curry were courting, but they refused to take her advice and wait to wed.
In a MySpace.com posting, Knight adds, "It is no secret Florence and Adrianne do not see eye to eye." »
Where's Alice with a tension-deflating quip when you need her? Christopher Knight says he's "hurt deeply" that his Brady Bunch mom, Florence Henderson, publicly called his marriage to reality-tv costar Adrianne Curry a mistake. "It hurts me deeply that someone that I have loved and respected for so many years ... would discuss overtly negative personal opinions about my marriage in a public forum," the My Fair Brady star writes on his MySpace page. "I can only hope these recent comments are an aberration." Earlier this month, Henderson, 74, told reporters that she felt Knight, 50, and Curry, 25, had been pushed into marriage by their reality show, »

But Henderson, who played Knight's onscreen mother in the 1970s family show, claims producers tricked him into marrying Curry in a bid to boost ratings for the couple's spin off show My Fair Brady.
She says, "He's like my son. His mother had passed away and he was very involved with this - this person that he met on The Surreal Life. They (VH1) were trying to actually, I think, force him to get engaged. And he called me and he said, 'Would you come and, uh, just counsel us?' "
The 74-year-old actress adds: "I went and counselled them. But they didn't take my advice at all. They asked if I could come and counsel them before the marriage. And I said, 'No, but maybe I'll come and counsel the divorce.'" »
"The Brady Bunch" star believes VH1 execs pressured Christopher Knight (Aka Peter Brady) into marrying "America's Next Top Model" winner Adrianne Curry in order to spice up "The Surreal Life" and its spinoff, "My Fair Brady."

He says, "To me, Dawn will always be Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island and Florence will always be Mrs. Brady."
He also revealed how he fell into show business "by accident" after writing jokes for late actor Bob Hope, while he was studying for a master's degree in biological sciences.
He says, "Bob liked my jokes, used them on his show and got big laughs. Then he asked me to join his writing staff.
"I was faced with a major decision - writing comedy or starving to death while I cured those diseases. I made a quick career change."
One of the most prolific writers in the history of television received a well-deserved honor today, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Though he's written for many shows like My Favorite Martian and The Red Skelton Show, Sherwood Schwartz will always be remembered for creating two incredibly successful sitcoms, Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch. Though they only ran for three and five seasons respectively, they continue to be very popular in reruns and have spawned numerous reunions and spin-offs.
At the event, Dawn Wells (Gilligan's Mary Ann) and Florence Henderson (Brady Bunch's Carol) both spoke about their great appreciation and admiration for Schwartz. Christopher Knight (Pete) and Susan Olsen (Cindy) were also in attendance to represent the Brady brood. Patrick Denver (son of Gilligan star Bob Denver) was there as were many of Schwartz's family members and friends (including Let's Make a Deal game show legend Monty Hall »
