Image Credit: CBSGotta love those nerds on The Big Bang Theory: They were among the first actors to walk the red carpet of the Golden Globes on Sunday, which gave us plenty of time to catch up with CBS’ top-rated comedy. First up: Simon Helberg, who gave us this fun little tease on Howard: “I know that my character is going to have to make the choice between his mother and his girlfriend. That is going to come to a head. Rick Fox is coming on. He’s playing a tall, beautiful ex of Bernadette’s.”

Here’s what Kunal Nayyar had to say about his alter-ego, Raj:{C} “Raj’s sister Priya is coming back to town in the next couple of weeks. There’s a big dance number. Last time (his sister and Leonard) just slept together and Raj was fine because she didn’t want anything long term or serious. But this time they start to date and it may come to blows. It is going to be very hard for Raj to swallow if they become an item. I hope she’s back for awhile. She’s a great actress.”

Meanwhile, Kaley Cuoco dished that Penny’s still harbors feelings for Leonard: “I just heard that Raj’s sister is coming back with hopes of rekindling something with Leonard. I think that might kick up something with Penny. I think she is going to get a little jealous. She doesn’t realize she is in love with him until people take his attention away from her. We always want what we can’t have. That’s so Penny. Jessica Walter is shooting our show this week and it is hilarious. I will say there is some hot stuff going on there. Cougar hotness this week.”

Wait a minute, Jessica Walter? Give us more, executive producers Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady!

“Jessica Walter’s playing a wealthy donor at the university and the guys have to go and woo her and slow dance with her to get money for the university,” Lorre began. “Even Sheldon.”

“And maybe Leonard is called upon to do a little more than dance,” added Prady.

“It’s a little dirty and nasty and hopefully hilarious,” continued Lorre.

Like Cuoco said, Prady confirmed that Leonard and Penny will continue down a bumpy road. “I always think they are perfect but they just met each other at the wrong time in their lives,” he said. “We sort of pay attention to what the fans are saying and go from there. They aren’t through but they aren’t exactly ready to come together either.” – With reporting from Carrie Bell
