SLATED: FOX will bring back a new "Joe Millionaire" next season and start a junior version of "American Idol," the network has announced. Beyond saying the butler will be back, FOX executives revealed little about a second season of "Joe," which will compete with NBC's "Fear Factor" on Mondays at 8 p.m., reports the Associated Press. "American Juniors," to spotlight talented children, will run until "American Idol" returns in January. But don't expect a Simon Cowell-type judge. "This is not a show where we are going to be ripping children apart," said Gail Berman, FOX entertainment president.

SECURED: ABC's Barbara Walters, 71, has landed the first extensive TV interview with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, 55, in connection with her upcoming memoir "Living History," the network has announced. The interview will air June 8, a day before publication. The publisher, Simon and Schuster, has refused to answer any questions as to the book's contents, including whether Hillary discusses her husband's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. A Simon and Schuster rep did tell AP, however, that Walters (instead of her colleague, Diane Sawyer) got the interview because of her having done a Q&A with Clinton when her 1996 book, "It Takes a Village," was published.


QUOTED: "I don't know what the hell he's doing. It's a little excessive. Doesn't it seem a little bit girly? Like we're in a catfight." -- Mariah Carey, 33, to New York's Daily News, on Eminem's threat to reveal voicemails she allegedly left him while they were dating.


WED: Designer Shoshanna Lonstein, 27, married investment analyst Joshua Gruss, 29, before some 200 guests, including Tobey Maguire, at New York's posh Metropolitan Club on May 10, PEOPLE reports in its latest issue. Lonstein, who once dated Jerry Seinfeld, decorated every aspect of the event, including the two bouquets -- lilies for the photos, roses for the ceremony.

TAPED: Norah Jones's "100 Percent NYC: A Concert Celebrating the Tribeca Film Festival," which was held before 15,000 people last weekend in New York's Battery Park, will air on both MTV and VH1 Saturday at 8 p.m. ET, the music networks have announced. The Roots, Sean Paul, Robbie Williams and Jewel also performed, as did comedians Wanda Sykes (FOX's "Wanda at Large"), Denis Leary and Jimmy Fallon.
