Between a car accident that left her with lasting injuries and announcing plans to divorce, Mayim Bialik's strength was really put to the test in 2012.

"When you've had a 2012 like me, things can only get better," she told PEOPLE on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards. "That's the glass half-full."

Judaism has helped get her through the tough times.

"I'm a person of deep religious faith," the Terani-clad actress, 37, explained. "I really believe that things will be right in the universe. Things are hard, but I've really been taught in my tradition that the harder things are, the greater the potential reward. I really believe that."

At the 14th Annual Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globes afterparty on Sunday, The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco was anything but shy on the dance floor.

Grabbing each other's hands, Cuoco and Panettiere were engulfed in "animated conversation," but things got even more fun once the deejay played Madonna's "Like a Prayer."

Jim Parsons Quietly Comes Out

Jim Parsons has quietly come out of the closet.

In a new profile in the New York Times, The Big Bang Theory star is matter-of-factly described "gay and in a 10-year relationship."

Parsons never directly addresses his sexuality or elaborates on the remark in the profile, and his rep had no additional comment when reached.

The Times profile couches its revelation in the context of the actor's most recent Broadway role as Tommy Boatwright in Larry Kramer's powerful play, The Normal Heart, about gay men dying of AIDS in New York in the '80s.

CBS Adds Dramas Starring Jonny Lee Miller and Dennis Quaid

Originally posted 05/17/2012 09:35AM



The upfront event for top-rated CBS typically has the smoothness and confidence of a long-running Broadway musical that makes other productions in the area look like dinner theater.

Wednesday afternoon's event, which included an entertaining rap-opera number by NCIS L.A. star LL Cool J and lyric soprano Danielle de Niese, was no different. CEO Les Moonves, bragging about the network's position of strength, summed up his pitch to advertisers in four syllables.

"Blah," he began, concluding, "blah, blah, blah."

The biggest news was the announcement that Two and a Half Men, having re-secured the services of wily man-child Ashton Kutcher, was being moved to Thursdays and teamed with The Big Bang Theory.

The theory is that this will defeat other networks by creating an impenetrable force field of howling sitcom laughter.
