  • Mayim Bailik will love to have an episode where Amy gets a “makeover”: “I’d love an ugly duckling episode where I get to be in a mini-dress and stiletto heels,” she said, laughing. “As my outfits get more and more hideous…There comes a point — it’s kind of like the physics principle — there comes a point where there is no return. [Laughs] We might have reached that.” Source That sounds like a good idea, it might be funny.

  • Kaley Cuoco was a guest on last night’s Letterman Show. Here is the interview where she talks about her leg accident.

  • SPOILER ALERT!… Sheldon and Amy’s Skype romance is about to hit a major snag. “In the episode we’re shooting right now, Sheldon — in a moment of somewhat irritation — threatens to minimize her window,” Parsons teases. “For them, that’s big stuff.” Source

  • Ever wonder if we are ever going to find out Penny’s last name? (Although I think I might want that to remain a mystery…) Well according to executive producer Brad Prady we may have to wait a while: “We were just renewed for three seasons,” so they are in no rush. “We may wait to answer that for a little while.” Golden Globe champ Jim Parsons offered up his own ideas, however unlikely. “I thought Penny Moonves, as a tribute to the man up top,” he suggested. “[Or] sometimes the prop master’s last name appears on things, which would be London. But I don’t think they’re going to go with that.” Source
