‘House,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Leverage,’ ‘Royal Pains’: Find out what’s next in the Spoiler Room

It’s hot in New York right now. Not awful… but getting there. And watching the premiere of Leverage, where the team heads to Alaska for a case, not only made me wildly jealous but provided just the escape I was craving. That’s summer TV for you! And we’re gearing up for the bulk of it, readers. So send in your scoop requests to spoilerroom@ew.com (that’s two r’s) or Tweet them to me @EWSandraG. I’m also accepting random questions about finales, questions for EW staffers, and your general TV musings. (I read them all when I run out of TV to watch, which happens more often than you think.) Thanks, as always, Roomies!

‘HOUSE’: CHASE AND THIRTEEN: IS IT ON?

There’s so much change going on at House, it’s both terrifying and a little exciting. Exciting because there’s no way to predict how the post-Cuddy world will shift this show. One option currently being explored? The advancement of the Thirteen/Chase chemistry we’ve all picked up on.

“I think the fact that Chase confessed to her about the Dibala incident from last season is a very [important statement]. I think they have a powerful bond. I hope we only explore that further in the future,” executive producer Greg Yaitanes told EW after we screened the episode “After Hours.”

Of course, the future of this possible couple depends on Olivia Wilde’s commitment to the show next year, which is currently up in the air. Creator David Shore says anything can happen. “We’ve got lots of options and lots of things we’re stewing about. But we won’t know for sure until we start digging into season 8. But that was a nice surprise toward the end of the season, seeing the two of them together.”

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on House, Fringe, Psych, Castle, Dexter and More

Ask Ausiello has some scoop about Olivia Wilde and her character Thirteen on “House”.

Question: Now that Lisa Edelstein has opted not to return for House‘s eighth season and Jesse Spencer appears to be a lock to come back, should we be prepared for any other long-term castmembers leaving? —Melinda
Ausiello: The only remaining question mark is Olivia Wilde. Although she’s under contract for Season 8, her flourishing movie career will likely translate into another leave of absence — if not a permanent exit altogether. Exec producer David Shore concedes that there remains a great deal of “ambiguity” about the extent of Wilde’s involvement next season. “I expect she’ll be back,” he adds, “but I’m not sure how much she’ll be back.”

Five Reasons ‘House’ is Better with Olivia Wilde Back in the Fold

When Thirteen, played by Olivia Wilde, came strolling out of prison a few weeks ago, the fans of “House” collectively let out a sigh of relief. There are a number of “House” fans that were beginning to find the show a bit stale and predictable. With the return of Thirteen, suddenly the show opens up to a whole new world of possibilities. Here are five reasons why Thirteen returning makes “House” a much better show to watch.

Olivia Wilde is easy on the eyes
Shallow though it may be, the beautiful Olivia Wilde is certainly a good reason to tune in every single week. Those crystal eyes melt the screen every single week. Olivia Wilde is known the world over for her undeniable sex appeal. Fortunately, her beauty is not her only asset as an actress.

Thirteen’s history with Dr. Eric Foreman
In years past, Olivia Wilde has had an on-screen relationship with Omar Epps. This relationship was fodder for some of the best episodes in “House” history. The challenges they faced due to her health problems were extremely well crafted. Now, with Thirteen returning from prison secretly, Dr. Foreman and Thirteen are in perfect position to have fireworks again at some point. Even if they do not get back together, the history makes for excellent romantic tension and interest for viewers.

Thirteen’s impending demise makes “House” more interesting
Since the early days of her character, it was made clear that Olivia was dying. Now that she has returned and time has gone by, that death seems ever present and spooky looming in the background of her character. Will she die on the show soon? Will she suddenly get healed by some “House” miracle? These questions build drama and excitement around the week to week storyline.

“House” knows her secret
“House” is certainly one to be in on secrets and Thirteen is just as unlucky as others before her. When “House” knows your secret, you can be sure he will tease you and mess with your mind. Will he tell the rest of the team where Thirteen has been all this time? Will he reveal Thirteen’s secret? Only “House” knows for sure but it sure is fun watching to find out.

Thirteen is Hugh Laurie’s intellectual equal
Of all the characters that have come and gone on “House” over the years, Thirteen is the one that seems to be able to go toe to toe with him best. She is able to trick him when needed and actually get away with it, but at the same time lose emotional battles on occasion too. This ability makes for excellent back and forth between them both and great television for us all.

Olivia Wilde is back on “House” and fans could not be happier about it. These are only a few reasons why.

Justin Timberlake’s rep dismisses new Olivia Wilde dating claims

Justin Timberlake’s spokesperson has shot down fresh rumors he’s dating actress Olivia Wilde after they were spotted celebrating a mutual friend’s birthday together in New York.

The “SexyBack” hitmaker recently co-hosted a dinner party for his pal at his barbecue restaurant Southern Hospitality and Wilde was among those in attendance, mingling with the singer/actor and other guests.

It is the second time in as many months the newly single stars have been spotted out together, but Timberlake’s representative insists there is nothing romantic between the two.

His rep tells People.com, “They are friends and are not romantically involved, nor is Mr. Timberlake romantically involved with anyone.”

The pair was first linked in April, just weeks after the singer/actor split from Jessica Biel, and Wilde filed for divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli.

At the time, Olivia Wilde dismissed reports of a budding romance with Timberlake, tweeting, “Cool it honeybadgers. We are just friends and have been for years.”

Salman Rushdie Is Practically a Mentor to Olivia Wilde

olivia wilde salman rushdie One of the many perks of authoring The Satanic Verses and The Moor’s Last Sigh is the requisite personal friendship with Olivia Wilde, best known for her work in Tron: Legacy 3D and The O.C., on which she played a lesbian during a brief but memorable story arc in late 2005. The author and the actress discussed foreign policy at Da Silvano last week, because “he’s one of her parents’ best friends,” a rep said.

Recently single “Tron: Legacy” beauty Olivia Wilde was spotted dining with Salman Rushdie at a table for two at Da Silvano the other night. But while some onlookers thought it was a date, don’t let your imagination run wild. “He’s one of her parents’ best friends,” said a rep for Wilde, whose love life has been speculated about wildly since she filed for divorce in February from Tao Ruspoli. And man-about-town Rushdie has been linked to a laundry list of long-legged lovelies.
