Thanks to her sitcom's success, Beth Behrs hardly is broke.
She and Kat Dennings are two of television's most recognizable actresses as the stars of "2 Broke Girls," Mondays on CBS, to the degree they were enlisted as hosts of the network's telecast of the 40th Annual People's Choice Awards recently. (Their series had two nominations, after winning favorite new TV comedy honors its first year.)
In the show's third season, which has seen it return to its original slot after a move to a later time, the lively Behrs still feels good about the weekly misadventures of waitresses, roommates and cupcake-selling entrepreneurs Caroline and Max. "We got shifted around, but I think it's all working out from what I can tell," Behrs, aka "Caroline," tells Zap2it.
Nothing really surprises Lena Dunham. If you've seen Girls, you know she's seen, imagined, or tried nearly everything. But Justin Bieber's alleged choice of drugs on the wild night that landed him in jail? That little discovery inspired the actress to chime in on the pop star's misfortunes this week. Meanwhile, in an attempt to understand what has led Justin astray, Seth Meyers pinpointed the moment everything went downhill. In other can't-miss tweets, Ellen is cashing in on marijuana trends, and Kelly Osbourne had a pretty crappy time at Barney's. Keep reading to Lol at all that and more! The only crazy part of Justin Bieber arrest is that he was "popping anti-depressants all day." Anti-depressants take like 3 months to work. — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) January 23, 2014 Lena, don't you know Justin is planning for his future? I blame Kate McKinnon #Bieber http://t.co/wSDCqkf3wE — Seth Meyers (@sethmeyers) January »

Sorry, Mr. Donaghy, but it looks like your loyal assistant is otherwise engaged - literally. Maulik Pancholy, who played Alec Baldwin's overzealous-yet-devoted aide on 30 Rock, announced his engagement to longtime partner Ryan Corvaia on Thursday. The duo chose quite the spot for the momentous occasion: the Taj Mahal in India. "It only took 9 years but it's official! Just got engaged at the Taj Mahal ... Yeeeessss!" Pancholy, who turns 40 next week, wrote on Twitter, and he shared a photo of the duo standing in front of the iconic wonder of the ancient world. Pancholy, who is of Indian heritage, came out in November. »
