TV News Briefs: Bewitched, Passions, Tori & Dean, and Chuck

Elizabeth Montgomery from BetwitchedBewitched – Series star Elizabeth Montgomery received a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday. Hollywood’s honorary mayor Johnny Grant joked that Montgomery “is probably in the heavens laughing at us as we stand in the rain.” The actress’ children, Bill and Rebecca Asher, accepted the award and husband Robert Foxworth and friend Liz Sheridan both spoke at the event. Bewitched castmembers Erin Murphy (Tabitha) and Bernard Fox (Dr. Bombay) were also in attendance.

Passions – And speaking of supernatural shows, what will the stars of the DirecTV soap be doing once filming wraps on March 24th? Well, several of the actors are going on a five-night cruise to Mexico — and fans can join them. Reservations are now being taken for “Farewell to Harmony – The Bon Voyage Fan Cruise” that sets sail out of San Diego on April 1st. Hosts for the cruise thus far will be Eric Martsolf (Ethan Winthrop), Eva Tamargo (Pilar Lopez-Fitzgerald), and Colton Shires (Little Ethan Crane), with others expected to be added soon.

Tori & Dean: Inn Love – Is the reality show over? Residents in Fallbrook, California, where the Oxygen series was shot, say that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have vacated the bed and breakfast that they operated for the show’s two seasons. In addition, the guest house that the couple were living in has been put up for sale. A neighbor has said that Spelling and McDermott were really only at the inn when cameras were rolling.

Chuck – Series star Zachary Levi isn’t feeling so confident about his show’s future, despite the fact that NBC gave the freshman show an order for a complete season of episodes. He told Entertainment Weekly, “We’ve only aired 11 episodes… It’s nice to have a back nine, but you don’t really know what that means at the end of the day. You don’t know when you can go back to work. If they were to resolve the [writers] strike today, then they’d have to start writing, and the writing would take them through the rest of January, and we stop production in February.” Stay tuned!
