'Oprah: Where Are They Now?' to host 'Love Boat' reunion
Oprah: Where Are They Now?” comes back this weekend (Sun. June 8 at 9:00 p.m. Et on Own) with the reunion you never knew you wanted to see: the cast of that epic '80s cheesefest "The Love Boat." Ted Lange, Cynthia Lauren Tewes and Jill Whelan reunite and reminisce about life aboard The Pacific Princess, which was probably less fabulous than it looked on our TV screens. Then, in a rare interview at her Beverly Hills home, the one and only Latin music sensation Charo talks about success and the real meaning of her catchphrase “Cuchi-Cuchi.” We can only hope she talks about why she does not seem to have aged since 1982. Next, Dave Coulier, who played Uncle Joey on the popular sitcom “Full House,” talks about his real-life relationships with former co-stars Bob Saget and John Stamos and the truth about those Alanis Morissette rumors.

  • Pop2it
CBS' "The Talk" reunited the cast of "The Love Boat" on Tuesday (Nov. 5), and in addition to dressing like the iconic characters, the hosts asked the stars to reminisce on the surprise success of the series.

Gavin MacLeod, Bernie Kopell, Ted Lange, Fred Grandy, Lauren Tewes, and Jill Whelan were all in attendance to look back and discuss the success of the show.

"I didn't even think we'd get through the pilot. Nobody thought it would go beyond that," Grandy says. "The critics hated it. They said it would sink like the Titanic. They put us on at 10 o'clock on a Saturday night which is normally a graveyard shift. And then we started beating shows like 'Kojak' and 'Carol Burnett.' And all of a sudden, this thing caught on."

Exclusive: Corey Feldman Talks Life, Angels, and 6 Degrees of Hell
Coery Feldman Talks Life, Angeles, and 6 Degrees of Hell, on Blu-ray and DVD this week

It's been awhile since we chatted with Corey Feldman. Way back in May of 2011, the very busy actor revealed his part in the death of Osama Bin Laden*, as seen in the popular documentary Operation Belvis Bash. And then he literally disappeared. He fell of the map...

Well, Sort of.

After shooting five movies under the radar, Corey left Hollywood for the UK, where he trained to become a world class figure skater, competing in the popular British TV series Dancing on Ice.

He's back on our shores now, though, still living the life of a blue collar actor, despite being a national treasure. There is no rest for the wicked, and it seems Feldman has been burning plenty of midnight oil. This Tuesday finds the cult idol mainstay taking on a (sorta) lead role in 6 Degrees of Hell,
