Ms. Collette was understandably absent from Saturday’s premiere of her new movie “Jesus Henry Christ” at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on Saturday.

“She is doing well,” the film’s director Dennis Lee told People on the red carpet.

Ms. Collette married musician Galafassi in 2003. Their daughter, Sage, is 3.

Food Network’s Fieri pushes family meals

Guy Fieri was back on the road Monday, this time not to find hole-in-the-wall eateries, but to support California politicians telling parents to cook with their children every Sunday.

Standing outside the state capitol, the celebrity chef lamented the rise of drive-thrus and microwave dinners in place of sit-down, home-cooked meals.

Mr. Fieri, known for his boisterous style in the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives,” said that by making cooking a shared activity, parents could bring their families closer together and encourage healthy eating habits in children.

“Let them stand there and work the saute pan, let them do the plate up, let them deliver it to the family,” said Mr. Fieri, sporting his trademark platinum blond hair, cowboy boots and sunglasses worn on the back of his head. “Start them off slow. Educate them as you go.”

He went on to visit the state senate, which adopted a resolution urging the weekly meals, as well as the assembly, where the resolution now awaits action.

The resolution by Republican state Sen. Anthony Cannella follows a 2008 initiative that Mr. Fieri helped draft to label the second Saturday in May “Cook With Your Kids Day.”

‘Paul Reiser Show’ axed after airing 2 episodes

NBC has yanked “The Paul Reiser Show” after just two little-watched airings.

The comedy, which attempted a TV comeback for the former star of “Mad About You,” attracted a dismal 3.4 million viewers to its premiere. That same week, TV’s highest-rated comedy, “Modern Family” on ABC, had 9.6 million viewers.

The “Reiser” audience then dropped last week to 2.4 million viewers.

NBC says it will air repeats of “The Office” in the time slot - 8:30 p.m. Thursdays - for the final month of the TV season.
