Good afternoon, everyone. You're just in time for today's Reliable Source chat, happening now. Submit questions and read along as we discuss Rielle Hunter's pantsless regret, "Top Chef" coming to Washington and Peter Graves's seventies White House state dinner adventure (no crashing involved!).

Elsewhere, there's something for everyone today:

  • Television: Turns out that fans of Fox's hit "Glee" -- or Gleeks, as they like to be called -- will spend a lot of money for a glimpse at the show's stars. About 2,000 of them did just that at PaleyFest ("Comic Con for The Rest of Us") in Los Angeles earlier this week, and Lisa de Moraes was there:

    The room was quivering with anticipation, like the start of a major sale at H&M, as people climbed into their seats and began to chatter about the show while they waited for the night's activities to begin:
    "Oh my God -- remember Amber Riley's dress?!" one Gleekette said excitedly to a friend seated behind her. (Amber Riley is an "American Idol" audition rejectee from seasons past who's been cast to play Mercedes, the token non-skinny chick, on "Glee.")
    "OMG -- you wore the same dress!" the friend responded.
    "Oh great -- the biggest girl on the show is wearing my dress!" the first girl argued.

  • Museums: National Geographic is extending hours for its blockbuster Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit, to keep up with demand in the installation's final two weeks.

  • Music: Quirky-in-a-good-way Janelle Monáe did not disappoint at her sold-out show at the Black Cat.

  • Theater: American actor Michael Hayden is drawing raves for his turn as two different Shakesperean kings -- at the same time -- in the Shakespeare Theatre Company's "Henry V" and "Richard II."

  • Books: Ron Charles reviews Lionel Shriver's latest, "So Much for That," a novel about the ongoing cruelty of American health insurance.
