Every teenager in the country is reading STEPHENIE MEYER’S “Twilight” series of books (and will soon be watching the movies!). I am thrilled to announce that Stephenie is giving me a rare TV interview on Wednesday! Her latest book in the series, “Breaking Dawn,” is about a teenage girl who is torn between her love for a caring vampire and a sweet-natured werewolf. (Why are the good ones always taken?!) Stephenie was also writing a new book from Edward the Vampire’s point of view, but certain chapters got leaked online, and now she might not even release it! (I’m gonna try my best to talk her into it, or at least have her give me the scoop on what happens!) Then, throughout the ’80s and ’90s, movie producers refused to make a romantic comedy unless a certain blonde superstar agreed to appear, however, if I was ever unavailable, they would always offer the role to my guest, MEG RYAN! Meg took a few years off to spend time with her family and adopt a beautiful little girl, but she’s back and starring in the new film “The Women.” I’m gonna play a game with her called “Peg Meg” — which I’m certain will become the newest craze in the country. Plus, don’t miss a performance by NE-YO who will be doing one of my favorite songs of the summer, “Closer,” from his latest CD, “Year of the Gentleman.”
