Set injury sidelines Chenoweth


Kristin Chenoweth says injuries she sustained while filming the CBS legal drama “The Good Wife” last month will prevent her from returning to the show.

In a statement issued Monday she expresses “deep regret” she’ll be unable to return in her recurring role “at this time.” She’ll appear in the season premiere, airing Sept. 30.

The 44-year-old actress was hit on the head by a piece of equipment while on the show’s New York City set July 11. She was briefly hospitalized.

She says she’s “getting better slowly.”

Location found

Jennifer “JWoww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi have finally found a New Jersey town that will let them tape the second season of their reality show.

The mayor of Manchester Township tells the Asbury Park Press that the “Jersey Shore” spinoff “Snooki & JWoww” will start shooting there in the next few days.

He says there’s nothing in local law to keep the show from filming there. In recent weeks, Point Pleasant Beach nixed taping there, and 495 Productions, which produces the show, decided against accepting conditions from local officials in Morristown.
