Lisa Whelchel doesn't remember 'Facts of Life' lyrics, George Clooney kiss

Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth reunion, move over. The Facts of Life alums Lisa Whelchel (Blair) and Kim Fields (Tootie) have reteamed to play wedding coordinators in a Hallmark Channel original movie, For Better or For Worse, which premieres July 19 at 9 p.m. ET. When Whelchel stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105), EW Morning Live’s Jessica Shaw and Dan Snierson asked her to sing the Facts of Life theme song. And when she failed to remember more lyrics than Shaw, they asked her to compensate by sharing a secret from the set. It turns out George Clooney wasn’t that memorable of a kisser. READ FULL STORY

Larry King talks the one day he'd like to do over (and giving up pot) -- LISTEN!

He may be good friends with Snoop Dogg, but Larry King is getting nothing but a contact high these days. Visiting Entertainment Weekly Radio on Wednesday, King was asked if he shared a joint with another famous toker, Willie Nelson, who recently appeared on Larry King Now. The answer is no, because King hasn’t smoked pot or cigarettes since his 1987 heart attack. He discusses both habits in the clip below.

“I never smoked pot again. Not because I didn’t like it. I thought pot was terrific, and I think it has medicinal value,” he tells EW Morning Live hosts Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw. “[But] because I feared that if I put it in my mouth and blew smoke out, I would get back to cigarettes again. If I had one day in my life to [do] over again, it would be the day I started smoking. I regret that, and I paid a price for it.”

Quitting smoking was surprisingly easy for him, King says. “Once that heart attack happened, a psychiatrist friend told me that I literally got scared to death. I never picked up a cigarette again, never reached for one.” READ FULL STORY

In the season 2 finale of The Following (Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Fox), twins Mark and Luke (Sam Underwood) turn the tables on Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), who’ll have to work together to save Claire (Natalie Zea). Underwood has been so convincing in the roles, he’s been known to put fans on edge – including a security guard in the Time-Life Building when he popped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test (watch it below): “He looked at me kinda like, ‘He’s a dodgy character who could have something dangerous in his bag’ as he was scanning my stuff,” Underwood says. “Then he looked up at me and went, ‘Are you…,’ and I said, ‘Yeah.’ As soon as he realized I play a psychopath serial killer twin, then he was fine with it.” READ FULL STORY

'Monuments Men' stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, more talk Golden Globes revenge with EW Radio -- VIDEO

After Tina Fey made a Golden Globes joke about George Clooney and the age of the women he likes to date, the Hollywood prankster planned his revenge, with the help of some Matt Damon stationery. That was just one of the many anecdotes Clooney shared with EW Radio during the Monuments Men Town Hall, which airs Friday at 1 p.m. ET on Sirius XM 105. People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle led the talk, which included Clooney and Monuments Men co-stars Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, and Hugh Bonneville.

In addition to their pranking behavior, the group also revealed what they would be doing if they weren’t acting (someone needs to remind Matt Damon that he already is a writer — an Oscar-winning one!). The movie, which opens Friday, is inspired by the true story of a group of museum directors, curators, and art historians who entered Germany at the end of World War II to rescue artwork taken by the Nazis. Oscar winners Cate Blanchett and Jean DuJardin also star.

During the chat on Wednesday, Clooney revealed he sent a fake letter to Tina Fey and co-host Amy Poehler, seemingly from Damon, asking for an apology for his own Globes dig about being considered the “garbageman” in the room. When Damon later received two large fruit baskets at his home, he knew something was up. Watch the clip below to get the full story:

Tony Danza on celebrity Internet death hoaxes: The second time, people buy it

Tony Danza is alive and well and starring in both the Broadway-bound musical adaptation of Honeymoon in Vegas, opening Sept. 26 in Millburn, NJ, and in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon, which hits theaters (and the cover of EW) Sept. 27. But you might recall he’s been the victim of not one, but two celebrity death hoaxes. Stopping by The Editor’s Hour with Jess Cagle on Entertainment Weekly Radio this week, Danza explained that the second time the Internet proclaims you’re dead, more people actually buy it. “Like, I got messages on my phone, ‘Oh, Tony!’” he says, laughing. “It’s kinda weird — after you’re gone, still being able to know what would happen.” Listen to an excerpt below and hear the full interview on SiriusXM channel 105 tomorrow (Sept. 26).
