Rivera, who plays closeted lesbian Santana on the Fox hit, has been named host of the 22nd annual event, to be held May 14 in San Francisco. Sex and the City alum Kim Catrall will be on hand to receive the Golden Gate Award for her tireless work with the LGBT community.

    is Edge just gonna be a 1 off guest star? Or is he joining the show as a regular or recurring

  2. Donna says:

    YAY! Edge will be back on Friday nights!

    BOO! Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution shouldn’t be treated like yesterday’s leftovers, which is what the Dancing recap is.

  3. nala310 says:

    Don’t understand why they’re moving Jamie Oliver around. Doesn’t having the DWTS recap show the next night defeat the point of watching it Monday? Why watch two hours on Monday when you can see the majority the next night, kind of shooting themselves in the foot?

  4. Joe says:

    Must be the LA Dept of ed. They couldn’t keep him from getting his message out during shooting, so they’ve used their obvious political clout to force it into oblivion. /toungueincheek
