"A couple things on Leslie Bibb... I was doing a search recently for Leslie Bibb fan sites and found that she was on the 3rd episode of the 1st season of Just Shoot Me as Nikki. Here is the description:
"Secretary's Day" gs: Crystal Bernard [ Herself ], Jay Leno [ Himself ], Leslie Bibb [ Nikki ], Cecily Adams [ Doris ], David Valcin [ Young Executive ], Dave Clark [ Newscaster ]
Finch gets extremely annoyed when everybody wishes him happy Secretary's Day- he despises being known as a mere secretary. He storms out of the office and ends up in the arms of a gorilla at the zoo. Also, Maya tries to talk Nina out of getting breast implants.

Also, Leslie Bibb and a couple others from the cast of Popular (I'm not sure who else) recently attended a Kendall Payne show at the Troubadour on November 8th. Kendall is the girl who sings the new theme song for the show. The song ("Supermodels") is from her debut album "Jordan's Sister" and is slated to be her next single, which will be released to radio in January. Anyway... Leslie discovered Kendall at a previous show where she was opening for Dido, and Leslie bought Kendall's CD at the concert then took the song "Supermodels" to the show's producers, and voila. The song is perfect for Popular.
Two friends of mine attended the show and were hanging around with Kendall afterwards. They overheard Kendall's conversation with Leslie, and apparently they were talking about a possible Kendall appearance on the show. Leslie wants Kendall to make a cameo as the band on Popular's prom episode, and I'm willing to bet it will happen..."
