McMarriage
Carmen Electra can't help getting mushy around her husband of three months, Dave Navarro, but she knows it can turn people off. "I'd get grossed out if it wasn't me," says Electra, 31, who hosts the DanceStar USA American Dance Music Awards in Miami on March 9. "It would make me nauseous." Still, she's much more mature about marriage this time around. "The first one [to Dennis Rodman] wasn't thought out. We were in Vegas, and just did it," says Electra. "So I completely feel for Britney. It's easy to get caught up in a moment. You think it's romantic, but then you realize, 'God, we did it in Vegas?' It's like getting a cheeseburger at a fast-food restaurant."

Funny Money
Tom Selleck says he's no Arnold Schwarzenegger. "If I got into politics, I'd have to give up acting—and then I couldn't pay my mortgage," says Selleck, 59, who stars as Dwight Eisenhower in A&E's upcoming Ike: Countdown to D-Day. "I have to support my family [wife Jillie Mack and their daughter Hannah, 15]. I've got an avocado ranch to maintain. The Ike script moved me to tears, but the pay-check's important too. Arnold's in a whole different league than I am financially. If I was in office, there'd be something awfully fishy with the bookkeeping."

The Doggfather
Snoop Dogg believes that he was born to play Huggy Bear in Starsky & Hutch, the comedy remake with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. "Huggy Bear has a certain Snoop Dogg inside him. P. Diddy couldn't have been him," says the rapper, 32. "Huggy was a cool dude, and [director] Todd Phillips let me add my flavor with the hair, the fingernails, the outfits and the jewelry. I brought my own car to the set." The security-conscious Snoop also brought his own team of bodyguards. Observes his costar Wilson: "You would think that someone who might have that sort of concern and fear wouldn't ride around in a car emblazoned with Dogg Mobile on the side."

Switching Gears
Ashley Judd shares a need for speed with her husband, Scottish driver Dario Franchitti. "I'm going to ride in a two-seater with Mario Andretti," says Judd, 35, who stars in the cop thriller Twisted. "He's the only person Dario [trusts]." Later this year, when the actress hits the Indy Racing League circuit with Franchitti, she'll curb her enthusiasm, at least around the pit crew. "Everyone is working, so you have to be appropriate," she says. "When I first started going to races, I was extremely nervous. It was like being backstage, hoping you don't trip over something or accidentally speak into a live microphone. [After a while] they took a picture of me stretched out on the pit wall reading The New York Times the day of the race, and I thought, 'That's a little too relaxed.' "
