Saturday Coffee Klatch: Tidbits To Get You Going

Good morning! Jay Leno gets serious for once, asking Michele Bachmann about her closeted husband's (ironic) "pray the gay away" clinic and why the hell she cares if gays get married... @Gawker

Right: Neil Patrick Harris gets a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, with his love David Burtka by his side... New Harold & Kumar flick hits theaters Nov. 4.

The fall TV season... See Entertainment Weekly's helpful grid to see what debuts when. What we've got Tivo'd: Pan Am, The Playboy Club, 2 Broke Girls, American Horror Story. What looks dreadful before it's even begun: Charlie's Angels, Whitney, Up All Night. Pending: New Girl, because Zooey Deschanel is such an appealing presence. And please go away: The Office, Community, Grey's Anatomy, Parks and Recreation, Dancing with the Stars.

Sarah Palin is revealed as a whore and a cokehead in scandalous new biopic... and this is worse than the fact that she's an idiot, a celebutante and a vindictive schemer? @Newsday

Left: Anderson Cooper meets his wax figure at Madame Tussaud's in New York: "I look kind of like a jerk."

Adele is as big as The Beatles. And she's actually relevant. In the 2012 Guinness World Book of Records, out this week, the Brit singer is the first female to ever have two singles and two albums in the U.K. top 5 simultaneously. The Beatles did that in 1963. Adele is also the only artist in U.K. history to sell 3 million albums in a single calendar year. The Beatles never did. So can we please stop talking about them someday? @Examiner.

Moms, be careful out there. Girl Scouts are pushing religious subversion, promiscuous sex, radical feminism, lesbianism and paganism. Their cookies make you fat, too! @Slate.

Right: Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga's duet of "The Lady Is A Tramp" is utterly delicious. See it here. Sadder... Bennett's duet with Amy Winehouse "Body and Soul" here.

Left: Johnny Depp stars with Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz and Eva Green in a re-rub of 70's soap Dark Shadows for the big screen, a "gothic-horror tale centering on the life of vampire Barnabas Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts.” First pics from the set, where he looks just like... Michael Jackson!

Right: Madonna continues an active campaign to make herself loathsome, as she orders volunteers to turn to the wall when she walks by. @The Superficial.

How to take an airplane trip with your horrible, screaming children. The one they leave out: PLEASE DON'T. @CNN.

Sunday: The Emmy Awards are broadcast on Fox at 8 p.m. And the nominees are...

Below: True Blood's Joe Manganiello has called off his engagement with fiance Audra Marie. I don't really care... it just gives me an excuse to see more pics of the sexiest man alive.
