AfterElton Briefs: Dot Marie Jones Vs. Andy Cohen, the Importance of “Happy Endings,” and Rick Santorum Embarrasses Himself Again.

  • Happy 65th Birthday to Patty Duke! Below you can see Patty talk about briefly working with Judy Garland on the set of Valley Of The Dolls, and her feelings toward the movie’s director, “The meanest son-of-a-bitch I ever met in my life.”

  • The SAG Award nominations were announced this morning, with the usual suspects (Modern Family, 30 Rock) scoring big, as well as a few surprises.
  • Speaking of, this year’s SAG Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented by Dick Van Dyke to Mary Tyler Moore. When they do her retrospective, I’m going to be pissed if they don’t include my favorite Mary moment, her infamous 1976 biblical TV special Mary’s Incredible Dream, which was aired once, and never again. It features Ben Vereen as Lucifer, and Manhattan Transfer performing “Sympathy For The Devil.”
  • Okay Rick, now you’re just bringing down the curve for the rest of the country.

  • Below you can see Sacha Baron Cohen in the trailer for The Dictator. Unlike Borat and the abysmal Bruno, this isn’t a mockumentary (and it finally gives Megan Fox the perfect role).

  • Below you can see Dot Marie Jones arm wrestle Andy Cohen. Damn, I was rooting for the Slutty Elf (no, not Andy, it’s someone else).

  • The season premiere of the faboo web series Old Dogs & New Tricks is January 8th, and below you can see a special holiday greeting from the cast.

  • Below you can see Betty White talk about some of the items up for auction in Rue McClanahan‘s estate sale, which will take place this Saturday. I can’t be the only one who immediately recognized the red sequin number.

And today’s Briefs are brought to you by…
