Rita O'Farrell's “Pedestrian,” now at the Lounge Theatre, initially debuted at the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival.  There's still something palpably “fringey” about the play, which is certainly not of the stick-to-your-ribs school of theater. But, although O'Farrell doesn't quite manage to say anything particularly novel about the state of human relationships, her roughly hour-long play largely succeeds as a comical divertissement. The plot revolves around Dennis (Daniel Ball)

Newt Gingrich says he doesn’t expect to be vice president, and, he says, he's made personal mistakes. The Republican presidential hopeful, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, threw back to moderator David Gregory a question about the No. 2 spot. “Can you imagine any presidential nominee who would pick me to be the vice presidential candidate?” Gingrich, the former House speaker, asked. “As Reagan said in ’76 when he was hoping Ford would not ask him, nobody could automatically say no to the president of the United States," he said.

A federal judge in San Francisco decided today that gays and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, striking down Proposition 8, the voter approved ballot measure that banned same-sex unions. U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker said Proposition 8, passed by voters in November 2008, violated the federal constitutional rights of gays and lesbians to marry the partners of their choice.. His ruling is expected to be appealed to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and then up to the U.S. Supreme Court.

So much for "Forever in Love," Kenny G. Twenty years after that tune came out - and also 20 years after Kenneth Bruce Gorelick and Balynda Benson-Gorelick said "I do" - the smooth-jazz man has filed for divorce. The papers, filed Thursday and obtained by TMZ, cite irreconcilable differences and indicate he's seeking joint custody of their 14-year-old son, Noah. Kenny didn't exactly strike first. Balynda filed for legal separation back in January, according to E! News, a move that's reflected in the paperwork.

WASHINGTON-- Having graduated to the role of elder statesman -- his thick mane gone white,  the boom years now lauded by politicians of both parties -- it is clear the political transformation of William Jefferson Clinton has been among the most successful of recent past presidents. It is thus easy to forget the stumbles that marked his tenure long before Monica Lewinsky became a household name, which offer instruction for today's politicians. The 1994 Republican revolution, when the GOP seized control of the House for the first time in four decades, was the obvious low point of Clinton's first term (even if the overreach and foibles of one Speaker Newt Gingrich ultimately helped lift Clinton to easy reelection two years later.)

Millennials stand out among other generations for their optimism over personal finances and America's future, according to a new national survey released Friday by the Pew Research Center. But the upbeat thinking among the 18-to-33-year-old crowd is also marked by near or at record levels of detachment and distrust of traditional institutions, the report also said. “Millennials are forging a distinctive path into adulthood. " said Paul Taylor, Pew Research Center's executive vice president for special projects and author of the new book "The Next America.

Sara Gilbert of "The Talk" is engaged to Linda Perry, her girlfriend of more than a year, the co-host announced Monday on the show. The proposal, which was elaborate, is best captured by the notoriously shy Gilbert herself, who shares the event in the video down below -- definitely worth watching to hear all the intricacies. Be warned: It involves a love song, a breakup song, a picnic, a guitarist, a daydream, a string section and horns, T-shirts, moms, friends and musician John Waite.

The mayor was there. So were the protesters. Judith Vazquez wore an ivory wedding dress. So did her bride. Vazquez and Lol Kin Castaneda on Thursday became the first gay couple to marry in Mexico under a new law that allows same-sex couples to wed and to adopt children. The law was passed by the Mexico City legislature in December and applies only to the capital. It is the most far-reaching gay-rights law in Latin America and one of several measures that have put the city and its leaders at odds with the more conservative country.

Bristol Palin is learning Rule No. 1 of being a blogger: If you're going to dish it out, you gotta be able to take it. Palin is being blasted for ridiculing President Obama this week on her Patheos blog, and how he came to change his position on same-sex marriage in part by reflecting on the life experiences of his young daughters, Sasha and Malia, who have friends with same-sex parents. The post headlined "Hail to the Chiefs -- Malia and Sasha Obama" doesn't explicitly outline Palin's position on same-sex marriage.

It ain't over till it's over, at least in the case of Katharine McPhee and her estranged husband, Nick Cokas, who hit a rough spot in October after she was photographed publicly kissing her married "Smash" director.  Though the embarrassing photos initially seemed to be the catalyst for their split, which also went public at the time, word emerged that they'd actually been separated for months prior to that breaking news and that McPhee had...
