Days Of Our Lives and PLL fans are in for a treat. Brant Daugherty is a surprise, but welcome addition to the new cast of Dancing With The Stars. In addition to such previously rumored celebs as Valerie Harper and Elizabeth Berkley, Bill Nye The Science Guy will also be included, and I love how they have Leah Remini piped in … FROM A SECURE LOCATION!

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … John Benjamin Hickey. John nabbed his first starring role in the 1996 road trip comedy-drama Finding North, as a suicidal man mourning the loss of his boyfriend. The cover art is classic.

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90’s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #49 is … “Chains” by Tina Arena. Tina has had an enormous amount of success in her native Australia, as well as across Europe, but her fame in the U.S. and on the Billboard Hot 100 was very fleeting. “Chains” hit the top ten in in Australia, Canada, and the UK, but it barely scraped into the Top 40 on the Hot 100, stalling at #38 in May 1996. It’s a shame, because it’s a terrific pop song, and Tina has a huge voice.

Congrats to JohnEd, who was the first to correctly guess that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Sanford and Son.
