There she goes again, being all in-your-face.  Madonna appeared on Jerry Seinfeld's new hit show The Marriage Ref on NBC tonight and I must say once again, the show was beyond entertaining.  The Queen of Pop joined the celebrity panel alongside Larry David (Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Ricky Gervais (The Invention of Lying, The Office - UK) and there was a whole lotta arguing with Madonna taking a feminist stance on pretty much everything.  

The panel got to judge amusing couples' conflicts tonight including a wife who treated her lizard better than her jealous husband, which Madonna had no issue with, and also a couple burdened by the husband's overbearing mother.  In tonight's episode, the audience got to see the mother belittle her son, a 46 year-old man, for not having sex more often with his wife.  What gets me is that the man is a Psychotherapist!

I am in love with this show and for me it's honestly more about seeing the celebrity panel bicker than the actual couples' drama.  Oddly though, the couples only win a Royal Caribbean Cruise for their embarrassment, so clearly the budget is going all into the celebrity guest appearances.  Congratulations NBC, you've just made television exciting again for me!

And while we're on the topic of Madonna, Oscar-nominated actress Maggie Gyllenhaal appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and confessed her adoration for her since the age of seven.  Gyllenhaal revealed that she attended Madonna's Oscar Party and got to dance full-on with her for a  minute, but couldn't keep up with her.  Before long, she noticed Madonna dancing with her husband, Peter Sarsgaard, who in her words was "controlling it" with his neck tie.  Good times.
