Actor Matthew Perry is recovering from emergency dental work as he promotes new TV remake The Odd Couple after undergoing four root canals in two days. The former Friends star reveals he recently cracked a tooth while snacking on a bowl of mixed nuts during a trip to Las Vegas and had to undergo a series of surgeries.
He says, "I was in Las Vegas and I was shooting crap (sic)... and I bit into a... peanut medley, mixed nut sort of thing, and my tooth broke at the gum line...
"I get rushed to an emergency dentist and this husband and wife team... they kept looking at my teeth X-rays and kept (shaking their heads)...
"On the first day they did one root canal, so I was in the dentist's chair for two hours and 45 minutes, and on the next day, they did three and I was in the dentists' chair for four hours."
Singer/actress Adrienne Bailon is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Lenny Santiago. The Cheetah Girls star broke the news on her U.S. daytime chat show The Real during a taping on Thursday (05Feb15), revealing her engagement for the first time in front of the studio audience and co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry.
During a segment, during which the ladies chatted about the latest Hollywood gossip, Bailon, 31, suggested there was a very important story that wasn't included, adding, "It's not in here, you know why? Because no one knows."
She then showed off her new diamond ring much to the surprise of her co-hosts, who gathered around her, jumping for joy.
Bailon recalled the moment Santiago popped the question during a recent visit to her native New York - the couple was enjoying a family dinner when her romantic boyfriend presented her with a box filled with carrots. When she accepted the odd gift, he said, "Well, since you said yes to those carrots...", and presented her with the diamond engagement ring.
Bailon has been dating the Senior Vice President of A&R, Artist Management at Roc Nation for six years.
She previously romanced Kim Kardashian's younger brother Rob.

HanWay marketing representative Thorsten Schumacher says: "This is an undeniably charming story about two opposites, the Odd Couple of their time. Stanley Tucci has written a wonderfully nuanced script."
The script is based on Lord's account of the experience, A Giacometti Portrait.
There are some celebrities that are so cute together, we immediately "ship" them, meaning we want two people to be in a friendship (bromances for life) or real relationship. Some of them are together, some of them are broken up, and some of them are just best friends. Either way, we are waiting for the day that they get finally get together.
1. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gyosling
Yes, we know they started off hating each other. Yes, we know they did try dating in real life only to break up. But THIS is still playing over and over in our minds.
2. Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders
We know, Neil is married with kids and ladies aren't his thing, but their characters on How I Met Your Mother were so gosh darn perfect for each other that we can't help but ship them!
3. Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles from One Direction
Their friendship is the cutest thing ever and it's 90% of the reason we love One Direction.
4. Zoey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
While filming a movie together they took a break to make this little duet and we never stopped shipping them since!
5. Drake and Rihanna
Their relationship history has some drama to it, but in the Chris Brown, Rihanna, and Drake love triangle there is no doubt which one is the better choice.
6. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
It looks like this relationship is over for good and we're totally bummed about that.
7. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton
Is there a celebrity pairing that has a better back and forth than this one? We think not!
8. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder
Another cute co-star couple that had to bite the dust. But we will always have The Vampire Diaries to give us our fix.
9. Miss Piggy and Kermit The Frog
This might be the first celebrity couple we have ever shipped and it still stands today!
10. Tom Felton and Emma Watson
When news of Emma's crush reached Tom he said he saw her like a sister, but we still argue that they would make a great couple in real life.
11. Jay Z and Beyonce
We die every time we get a glimpse into their perfect life together.
12. Taylor Swift and Lorde
They are such an odd pairing, and we love them for it!
13. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
I mean a couple that can dance like this together has to stay together forever!
14. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
They need to stay best friends forever and then invite us over for dinner. THIS IS OUR FANTASY!

The Judge star Vincent D'onofrio has teamed up with musician Dana Lyn for a punk-poetry venture under the name Slim Bone Head Volt. Released in March (15), the duo's punk spoken word album will feature the tracks I'm A Hamster, I'm A Cat and President D'Onofrio, and the actor and Lyn will preview songs at a Joe's Pub gig in New York on 20 December (14).
A press release accompanying the album news reads: "Slim Bone Head Volt is the gathered and scattered, tin and iron and rust and splintered wood, chipped pavement and weedy lots and junk heaps of an actor's brain and a musician's hands.
"The simplified way to describe these noises and dreams is this: D'Onofrio's spoken words set to Lyn's music."
The odd couple became friends during rehearsals for an off-Broadway play several years ago.
Scarface actor Ted Beniades has died, aged 91. The veteran actor passed away peacefully at his home in Brookville, Pennsylvania on 24 October (14).
Beniades served in World War Two and later studied acting at the Dramatic Workshop in New York City, alongside fellow students including Marlon Brando, Walter Matthau, Tony Curtis, Rod Steiger and Bea Arthur.
He was best known for his role in the classic crime drama Scarface, in which he played an undercover police officer who busts Al Pacino's Tony Montana for tax evasion.
Scarface was the second film Beniades appeared in with Pacino - he previously starred in 1973's Serpico.
He also appeared in The Odd Couple and Sean Connery's The Next Man, as well as U.S. TV series such as The Equalizer, Dark Shadows, N.Y.P.D., and The Jackie Gleason Show.
Beniades also took on roles on Broadway, including Mister Roberts with Henry Fonda and musical Wonderful Town, during which he met his eventual wife, actress Marion Lauer.
The couple was married for 55 years until her death in 2009.
Matthew Perry is set to reunite with his former co-star and real-life girlfriend Lauren Graham onscreen after the actress was cast as his ex-wife on new TV sitcom Odd Couple. The Friends star dated Graham back in 2002, but they proved their professionalism by appearing opposite one another in cancelled comedy series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip in 2006 and the 2012 show Go On, on which the brunette also played Perry's love interest.
The Parenthood actress will now portray Gaby, the former wife of Perry's character Oscar Madison, in the Odd Couple reboot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The upcoming TV comedy, which is due to debut next year (15), is based on Neil Simon's classic play, about two drastically different college pals who move in together after their marriages end.
Thomas Lennon will play Madison's roommate Felix Unger.
Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau previously portrayed the characters in a 1968 film and 1998 sequel, while Jack Klugman and Tony Randall teamed up for a spin-off TV series, which ran from 1970 to 1975.
Ron Glass and Demond Wilson also appeared as Ungar and Madison in a African-American themed version of The Odd Couple in the early 1980s.
Veteran rocker Bob Seger and country king Jason Aldean are teaming up for an episode of U.S. cable TV series Cmt Crossroads. The odd couple will hit the stage together for the series, in which country acts perform with artists from another music genre, next week (28Oct14) - and their night to remember will air on the CMT network later this year.
Seger and Aldean have become friends in recent months and the 69-year-old Silver Bullet Band leader was spotted backstage at the country star's Concert for the Cure gig in Detroit, Michigan on 11 October (14).
Ironically, Aldean hit the top of the U.S. charts with his new album Old Boots, New Dirt last week (15Oct14) and Seger debuted what could be his final album, Ride Out, at number three on Wednesday (22Oct14).
Lady Gaga has confirmed she will ring in 2015 with Tony Bennett in Las Vegas. The odd couple, who topped the U.S. charts with their standards album Cheek to Cheek last week (ends03Oct14), have been booked to perform at The Cosmopolitan casino on New Year's Eve (31Dec14).
Gaga, who, at 28 is 60 years younger than the crooner, says, "I can't wait to kick off 2015 cheek to cheek with the legendary Mr. Tony Bennett. New Year's celebrations are about cherishing family, friendship, and the future - three things this man has taught me much about."
The pair joins Sir Elton John, Diplo, Skrillex and Erasure among the acts booking New Year's Eve shows in America.
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga's standards album Cheek To Cheek has shot to the top of the U.S. charts with over 130,000 first-week sales.
The odd couple beat Kenny Chesney to the top spot - the country star's new release The Big Revival debuts at two, just 1,000 sales behind Bennett and Gaga's duets album. In hitting the top spot for the second time in his career, Bennett, 88, becomes the oldest artist to reach the Billboard 200 number one. He breaks his own three-year-old record - Bennett was 85 when Duets II hit the top in 2011.
It's a good week for duets albums on the chart - Barbra Streisand's former number one, Partners, rounds out the new top three. British group Alt-J's land at four with This Is All Yours and a cappella group Pentatonix debut at five with PTX: Vol. III (EP).
A second television series based on the Neil Simon play about two mismatched, divorced men sharing a Manhattan apartment: Felix Unger, a neat freak and perfectionist making his living as a freelance photographer, and Oscar Madison, a sloppy, insouciant sportswriter for a fictional New York newspapers.
