> Singer Jason Mraz vows not to marry his fiancee until gay marriage is legalized. Thanks, bro.
> Meanwhile... Dan Savage wants President Obama to address gay marriage in this week's State of the Union speech.
> Last week it was Rob Kardashian who was approached to pose for Playgirl. Now we learn that Joey from MTV's The Real World: Hollywood has agreed to show off everything in the mag for $20,000.

> NBC just green-lit a new sitcom about " a straight couple introduces two of its lesbian friends to one another and what results is both instant attraction and a pregnancy," which comes from Will and Grace alum Jhoni Marchenko.
> The network has also picked up David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman project. Word on the street is that the series will be a serious -- rather than campy -- endeavor -- based on the comic book heroine.
> MTV's controversial teen series Skins continues to scare off more and more advertisers with its heavy mix of sex, drugs, and other assorted vices. Taco Bell, GM, and now H&R Block and Wrigley have all pulled their ads from airing during the new -- and in its first week highly rated -- drama.
