On this episode of How Was Your Week?, Julie talks to the fabulous JULIEANNE SMOLINKSKI (AKA Boobs Radley) on the "Smolinski Seven"--the elite 7 swarthy celebrities she'd like to bed. Then, author, comedy professor and Vanity Fair editor MIKE SACKS stops by to discuss four comedy clichés he is done with forever. A fun and education-rich show!

Also: Julie reviews Woody Allen's new movie, ranks the best fifteen animals of all time, shares her favorite Marcia Gay Harden anecdote, complains about steampunk and the never-ending trend of prostitute-strangling, and apologizes for being under the weather, THEN BARRELS THROUGH HER LESS-THAN-OPTIMUM-STATE-OF-MIND to give YOU the most for your entertainment dollar!

Plus: The sexual appeal of Uncas, the penultimate Mohican! What the Night Stalker likes about cable! The two things little kids always say in animated movies! Why it is that grannies rap so goddamn much! Birds, and what they can and can't teach us about becoming women! And much, much more.

Also, Julie ponders the worse of two evils--Bono versus Sting. Plus! The pettability of working dogs, Oprah's last show, Diane Keaton's quirkiness, the subtlety of the "Don't Stand So Close to Me" video, Glenn Close's appeal, the defintion of a Trophy Cougar, and the time  Jackée tried to sleep with Rodney Dangerfield.

On this episode of How Was Your Week?, Julie talks to the legendary SALLY KELLERMAN about the naked acting tips she learned for her shower scene in M*A*S*H, how she fell in love with Rodney Dangerfield for her role in Back To School, her first voice-over gig, and why she does an Aerosmith cover on her new record. Also, comedy genius PAUL SCHEER stops by to discuss three of his cultural blind spots---movies, TV shows or books that he claims to know about in conversations with eggheads, but that he's never actually partaken of. Who can blame him? Only a monster would have the audacity.


Plus: Paul on his annoying college roommate, "Geoff"! Sally on how she met her husband! A naked Gary Burghoff! An incompetent, occasionally Spanish-spouting masseuse! And why comedians best be careful before they scoff at magicians. A LEGENDARY EPISODE.
