It’s not the original job she wanted, but Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview for a secretarial job in the Thursday’s premiere of CBS’ reboot of “Murphy Brown.”
The former Democratic presidential candidate showed off her deadpan acting skills as she conversed with Candice Bergen, who plays the title role in “Murphy Brown,” noting that her first name was “spelled with one L.”
“I’m here to interview for the secretarial position,” Clinton says.
As she is interviewed, Clinton’s dialogue references her political career.
“For four years I was a secretary for a very large company,” Clinton tells Brown, who is interviewing for a secretary at her new cable news company.
“And you have the requisite skills, computers, email,” Brown asks.
“Emails,” Clinton says. “I do have some experience with emails.”
Brown wraps up the interview by observing that Clinton seems overqualified, but takes her business card.
Clinton’s email on the card is Hilary@youcouldhavehadme.com.
The original “Murphy Brown” series ran from 1988 to 1998, overlapping the time when Clinton was first lady.
Clinton will make another television appearance on Oct. 7, CNN reported. She will play herself, along with former secretaries of state Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell in the season premiere of “Madam Secretary.”
Actor Ashton Kutcher signed over complete ownership of his Los Angeles home to his former stepdaughter, Rumer Willis, ETOnline reported.
According to a legal filing obtained by The Blast, in 2009 Kutcher bought a two-bedroom, four-bathroom, 1,800-square-foot home in the Hollywood Hills for $971,500.
At the time, the “That ’70s Show” actor was married to Demi Moore. The document gave 50 percent ownership to Kutcher and Moore’s daughter by actor Bruce Willis, Rumer Willis, People reported. Kutcher and Moore were divorced in 2013 after eight years of marriage, ETOnline reported.
On Aug. 3, Kutcher signed over his ownership to Rumer Willis. He needed approval from his current wife, Mila Kunis, since the home was listed as community property after they were married in 2015, ETOnline reported.
The newest deputy in a Texas county has a reputation for being mean and green. And the Travis County Sheriff’s Office is more than happy to have actor Lou Ferrigno on its staff.
Ferrigno, who starred in “The Incredible Hulk” television series from 1978 to 1982, stopped by the Sheriff’s Office on Thursday on his way to Wizard World Comic Con, which began Friday in Austin and runs through Sunday, KXAN reported.
Ferrigno is a reserve deputy in Los Angeles County, the television station reported. The former bodybuilder said he stopped by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office to offer “encouragement and thanks,” while mugging for photographs with deputies.
Sheriff Sally Hernandez swore Ferrigno in as an honorary deputy, KXAN reported.
The nonprofit organization behind the beloved children's show "Sesame Street" is weighing in on a question that has sparked debates for decades: Are Bert and Ernie a gay couple?
The answer: Nope, they're puppets, Sesame Workshop said in a statement Tuesday.
"As we have always said, Bert and Ernie are best friends," the statement said. "They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human characteristics (as most 'Sesame Street' Muppets do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation."
Hours later, the organization added: "'Sesame Street' has always stood for inclusion and acceptance. It's a place where people of all cultures and backgrounds are welcome. Bert and Ernie were created to be best friends, and to teach young children that people can get along with those who are very different from themselves."
The comments came days after former "Sesame Street" writer Mark Saltzman gave a much different answer to the same question.
"I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert and Ernie, they were," Saltzman, who wrote for the show in the mid '80s through the late '90s, said in an article published Sunday by gay news site Queerty. "I didn't have any other way to contextualize them."
Saltzman said he drew from experiences with his own partner, Arnold Glassman, while writing some of the sketches. Glassman died in 2003.
"I don't think I'd know how else to write them but as a loving couple," Saltzman added.
Saltzman's comments quickly went viral on social media, drawing both praise and criticism.
Frank Oz, who created Bert, soon offered his own take.
"It seems Mr. Mark Saltzman was asked if Bert & Ernie are gay," Oz tweeted Tuesday afternoon. "It's fine that he feels they are. They're not, of course. But why that question? Does it really matter? Why the need to define people as only gay? There's much more to a human being than just straightness or gayness."
"As a writer, you just bring what you know into your work," he told the Times.
"Somehow, in the uproar, that turned into Bert and Ernie being gay," he added. "There is a difference."
Actor and comedian Tom Arnold filed a report Monday with the Los Angeles Police Department after he said he was attacked by famed producer and MGM Chairman Mark Burnett at a pre-Emmys party in Los Angeles one day earlier.
Update 3:45 p.m. EDT Sept. 17: Los Angeles police spokeswoman Det. Meghan Aguilar confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that Arnold met with officers in West Los Angeles on Monday to file a battery report in connection to the incident.
The Times reported that Arnold and Burnett got into a confrontation over alleged secret recordings from “The Apprentice.” Burnett produced the show, which was hosted by Donald Trump for 14 seasons before his 2016 presidential run.
Arnold’s new show, "The Hunt for the Trump Tapes," follows the comedian’s attempts to find recordings that show Trump expressing bigoted views on the reality show.
Arnold said earlier Monday that he planned to file charges against Burnett, who he said "lost his mind, attacked & chocked me last night at Katzenberg's Night Before The Emmy's Party."
Authorities are investigating the case.
Original report: Two nights before the premiere of his new Viceland show, "The Hunt for the Trump Tapes," actor Tom Arnold took to Twitter late Sunday to accuse famed producer and MGM Chairman Mark Burnett of attacking him at a pre-Emmys party in Los Angeles.
"Mark Burnett just went (expletive) and choked me at this huge Emmy party then he ran away with his torn Pink shirt & missing gold chain," Arnold tweeted just before 9:30 p.m. PDT.
"I'm waiting for LAPD," he added, referring to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Minutes after Arnold tweeted that Burnett had "choked" him Sunday night, Burnett's wife, Roma Downey, fired back with her own tweet.
"Got this bruise tonight when Tom Arnold tried to ambush my husband Mark and me at a charity event," she wrote. "Is your TV show worth it Tom? Please stop."
Arnold replied: "You lie your crazy husband attacked me you psycho. I'm filing police report & suing you for defamation."

It was not immediately clear whether Los Angeles police responded to the scene. Burnett has not publicly commented on the incident.
Arnold, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, has alleged that outtakes from "The Apprentice" show Trump using sexist and racist language, including the N-word. Arnold claims that Burnett, who created the reality show, won't release the tapes because he's protecting Trump.
Trump denied the existence of the alleged "N-word tape" last month when former "Apprentice" star and Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman released "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House." In the book, she discusses her efforts to learn more about the rumored recording.
"@MarkBurnettTV called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a terrible and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa," Trump tweeted on Aug. 13. "I don’t have that word in my vocabulary, and never have. She made it up."
"The Hunt for the Trump Tapes," which follows Arnold's quest to find "the truth behind the many rumored, potentially damaging recordings" of the president, premieres Tuesday, according to the show's website.
Prince Harry turns 34 Saturday, and even though he has been around the royal family his entire life, the Duke of Sussex admits he still gets nervous when he runs into his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
Those panic attacks are brought to light in a new documentary that examines life inside the royal family, the Express reported Saturday.
During the two-part series -- called “Queen of the World” -- Prince Harry was speaking with hospitality professionals from the Caribbean. The professionals were spending time at Buckingham Palace, the newspaper reported.
“You guys have spent way more time in Buckingham Palace than I ever have -- and you’ve only been here two weeks,” the prince said.
Harry added, “If you suddenly bump into (the queen) in the corridor, don’t panic.
“I know you will. We all do!”
The show will air Sept. 29 on ITV, the Express reported.
BET’s miniseries “The Bobby Brown Story,” a biopic about the R&B superstar Bobby Brown, aired this week, revealing intimate details about his career and life, including little-known facts about his family.
While his tumultuous 14-year marriage to the late Whitney Houston has been well-documented over the years, his union with his second wife, Alicia Etheredge, has been mostly kept out of the spotlight−until now.
Want to learn more about her? Here are five things you should know:
1. Brown and Etheredge met as teenagers.
The two met at a young age and became fast friends. He detailed the beginning of their relationship during an interview with "Access Hollywood" in 2012.
“We met many years ago, many years ago,” he said. “I believe I was about 18, and we were at a dance place, where people just go and work out their new moves … I met her there, and we became friends. We all hung out.”
2. She was a guest at Brown and Houston’s wedding.
The biopic revealed Etheredge attended Brown’s first nuptials in 1992. During a scene in the flick, she helped ease his nerves right before he walked down the aisle to say “I do” to Houston.
3. Etheredge works as Brown’s manager.
Brown asked Etheredge to manage him in 2008. Before joining his team, she had previously worked for music and sports stars, including Macy Gray and Magic Johnson, Brown once told Complex.
Mixing work and pleasure doesn’t come without its challenges. “There is always conflict at times that arises,” she told ABC News. “I think it’s just when the two overlap.”
4. Brown proposed to Etheredge during a concert performance
The artist popped the question while performing at the Funk Fest in Jacksonville, Florida, in May 2010. They wed two years later in June 2012 in a ceremony in Hawaii. They have two daughters and one son together.
5. Etheredge is among a family of business owners
Her sister, Kim Etheredge, is the co-founder of the hair product line Mixed Chicks. Her brother, Justin Etheredge, works in the film industry.
Former “Cosby Show” actor Geoffrey Owens, who was captured on video bagging groceries as an employee of a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey, said he was flattered by Atlanta mogul Tyler Perry’s Twitter job offer Tuesday.
“That was kind of cool,” Owens told "Entertainment Tonight" on Tuesday. “I mean, that kind of sounded like he was saying, ‘Come work with me.’ I’m so, like, skeptical. Like, really? Are you actually saying come work with me? Because we’ve never worked together before. So that’s a very, very generous thing for him to say. And we’ll see what happens with that. But that’s encouraging.”
He said he doesn’t want to just be handed a job. He’d like to earn it.
Perry was referencing a possible gig on his OWN drama “The Haves and the Have Nots,” which is the network’s highest-rated show. It’s shot at Tyler Perry Studios at Fort McPherson in Atlanta.
Owens, 57, said he quit the Trader Joe’s job for his own spiritual well-being after The Daily Mail and Fox News posted photos from a shopper of him bagging groceries. He said people had begun staking out the place just to see him.
He was upset about the unflattering comments at first, but a subsequent outpouring of support from fans and folks who believe he was being “shamed” made him feel better.
He continues to work as an actor, but he said he needed a flexible job between teaching and acting gigs.
In recent years, he’s had single-episode roles on shows such as CBS’s “Elementary,” NBC’s “The Blacklist,” Fox’s “Lucifer,” CBS’s “Blue Bloods,” HBO’s “Divorce” and HBO’s “The Affair.”
After “The Cosby Show,” he said he never had an acting job that lasted more than 10 weeks. In other words, over the past 26 years, he was never able to nab a job as a regular on a scripted TV show that lasted any significant length of time.
Fans of “Stranger Things” can enjoy a new corn maze in Indiana based on the popular Netflix series, WDRB reported.
The maze will debut at Exploration Acres in Lafayette on Sept. 14 and will be open through Oct. 28, the television station reported.
Tim Fitzgerald, president and CEO of Exploration Acres, said he got the idea for the maze after binge-watching “Stranger Things,” WXIN reported.
The size of the maze is equal to approximately 15 football field, and paths through it are more than 10 miles long, WDRB reported. Its design will include images from the show, including the main characters riding their bicycles, the television station reported.
World Lizard Day was held Aug. 14, but actor Chris Pratt decided to take it a step further.
In a video, Pratt shows Leo, his DPL -- domestic pet lizard -- on a leash.
“Fact: in 2018 fewer that 1 in 12 DPL’s (domestic pet lizards) even have leashes and far fewer will even go on a nice relaxing walk with their owner,” Pratt writes. “Demand action now.”
In the video, Leo looks content as Pratt breaks into song.
He’s a fortunate lizard.
