Hillary Clinton swung by Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” to plug “Hillary,” a documentary series streaming on Hulu. She told Cohen she now can comment on current events and her own life without fearing “how things can be taken out of context.” But her restrained “Watch What Happens Live” appearance didn’t much reflect this newfound freedom.

She refrained from talking smack about Bernie Sanders. And when asked about the Trump marriage, she replied, “I am the last person to comment on anyone’s relationship.”

For parks and rec, Nick Offerman turns to Minnesota

Nick Offerman says his annual fishing trips to Minnesota help hone his ability to channel unflappable characters.

“I’m lucky enough to do something for a living that never feels like a grind or being on a hamster wheel,” said the 49-year-old actor, best known for playing Scotch-sipping, woodworking Ron Swanson on “Parks and Recreation.” “Nonetheless, getting away, having that sense of solitude, helps empty the trash, if you will. You really get to enjoy a green phase before the next hand of cards is dealt. It’s so incredibly restorative.”

In addition to joining former “Parks” boss Amy Poehler to host the reality competition series, “Making It,” he’s playing a creepily contained CEO of a mysterious tech company in “Devs,” which started streaming Thursday on Hulu.

Paulina Chavez on life as a 17-year-old Netflix series star

Paulina Chavez is still adjusting to the whole stardom thing. The 17-year-old actress plays the lead role in the new Netflix series “The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia,” but still remembers struggling to keep it together when she first met series co-creator Mario Lopez.

And when Eva Longoria, who directed a few episodes of the series, made a surprise appearance on set, Chavez said she almost cried.

But it’s Chavez who’s leading “The Expanding Universe,” which debuted on Netflix on Feb. 17 and follows Ashley Garcia, a 15-year-old double Ph.D. who moves to California to work at NASA and live with her uncle Victor.
