SPECIAL DISCOUNT UPDATE:
Television personality, radio host and author Andy Cohen will soon be to add “relationship guru” to his ever-growing list of credits.
Cohen, 48, has signed on as the host and co-executive producer of Fox’s “Love Connection” reboot, E! News reports. The original, which ran from 1983 through 1994, attempted to match singles with compatible partners, sending them on three blind dates before allowing them to “dish” about their experiences in front of a live audience.
The Fox revamp will differ from the original by including same-sex couples, Fox executives told Entertainment Weekly. It will be executive produced by Mike Fleiss (”The Bachelor”).
On Wednesday, Cohen confirmed the news with an Instagram post.
“I was a huge fan of the original ‘Love Connection,’ and hosting the new version allows me to do one of the things I love most: meddling in people’s personal lives,” the “Watch What Happens Live” host said, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Cohen’s signature sass will no doubt be a perfect match for such a dishy show. The new “Love Connection” will debut this summer.

The kingdom of isolation just got another inhabitant. Disney will release “Frozen Fever” in the spring of 2015, a new short film featuring characters from “Frozen.” Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will return to direct the short, which will include a brand-new song from Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the Oscar-winning duo behind “Let It Go.”
“It’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk,” reads a plot description for “Frozen Fever” provided by Disney. As the studio noted, Olaf, the snowman voiced by Josh Gad in “Frozen,” will also appear. No word from the studio if Gad or stars Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff (as respectively, Anna, Elsa and Kristoff) will reprise their voice roles for the short.
Released on Nov. 22 of last year, “Frozen” grossed $ 1.274 billion worldwide. It won two Oscars at the Academy Awards back in March: Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (for “Let It Go”).
For reference, the films Disney has set for release next spring include “Tomorrowland” with George Clooney and Pixar’s “Inside Out.” The studio will also release “Cinderella” in early March.
