On Wednesday at 5pm PST, Selena Gomez will conduct another weekly fan chat.

Catch all the Selena action right here.
Also on Wednesday, Ashton Kutcher will be doing another episode of his Fantasy Football series. In between acting, encouraging Americans to volunteer, and running his own media company, Ashton still finds time to indulge in his favorite past time: football. Tune in here at 6:30 pm PST.
