What happens in Vegas is apparently very confusing.

Janeane Garofalo and "The Big Bang Theory's" Rob Cohen secretly wed at a drive-through chapel in 1991, but didn't realize it was binding.

"Rob and I got married, for real, which we had to have a notary dissolve not 30 minutes before we got here tonight," Janeane said at the New York Comedy Festival reunion for "The Ben Stiller Show." "We were married for 20 years until this evening."

According to the actress, she and Rob, who had been dating for a year at the time, "got married drunk" in Las Vegas.

"[We thought] you have to go down to the courthouse and sign papers and stuff, so who knew?" she said. "We were married, and apparently now that he is getting married for real, his lawyer dug up something." Rob recently became engaged to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" producer Jill Leiderman and needed this marriage dissolved.

'Sesame Street' accuser recants story

The man who accused Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash of sexual abuse has recanted his story.

On Monday, a storm of media coverage was devoted to the man, who said he had a sexual relationship with Kevin as a 16-year-old.

"He wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship," the unidentified man's attorney said.

Kevin, who has taken a leave of absence from voicing Elmo on "Sesame Street," said, "I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. ... I will not discuss it further."

Damian Lewis makes Muslim joke to POTUS

"Homeland" star (and everyone's favorite Brit playing an American terrorist) Damian Lewis better hope President Obama has a sense of humor.

After the president said publicly that Showtime's "Homeland" was his favorite series on TV right now, the cast sent a signed DVD set to the White House.

On "The Jonathan Ross Show" this week, Damian, 41, revealed the memorable message he left for Obama when he signed the card.

"Claire Danes had written something really lovely and sweet saying, 'I was a fan of yours long before you were a fan of ours,' " Damian said.

"I thought I'd think of something great and funny ... and wrote: 'From one Muslim to another' in an indelible Sharpie. And I couldn't take it back."
