Wonder how Diddy's feeling right about now...

Wonder how Diddy's feeling right about now...

Jessica Simpson: This doesn’t happen that often. Simpson said some wise words at her concert last night: “”I feel like in our world today we focus on so many things that are completely pointless.”  No doubt she’s referring to the recent hubbub surrounding her weight.

The View: Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is pregnant again!  This will be her third baby in less than 4 years!  We should be so lucky!

Obama: The Washington Post claims cartoonists are focusing too much on emphasizing the new president’s lips.  Racist or not?  Or just comes with the territory?

The CW: Returning to the listings grid in TV Guide.  In case you actually still need one of those things.

Danity Kane: The Making The Band/Diddy-formed group has completely broken up.  Guess they’re really damaged now!

Superbowl: Just face it: no party you plan or attend will top what the stars have planned for the big day.  We can’t wait til we’re famous!

The Office: After the game, don’t forget to watch the star-studded episode, which is sure to get super ratings.

Forbes: On their Web Celeb 25 list, Perez Hilton comes in a number one for the second year in a row.  How much longer do you think that’ll last?

Twitter: New to the game and don’t know who to follow?  As a companion piece to the above article, Forbes also has a list of the most influential Twitterers.

SIZZLED OUT: Rachael Ray

STILL SIZZLING: This actress, mostly known for the endless aray of spoofs she’s starred in, is getting serious with a former Everwood actor.  They’re engaged!

The family that tweets together, stays together!

The family that tweets together, stays together!

Digital TV: Damn that House.  The congressional one, that is.  Though the Senate approved a delay in the mandatory switch to digital TVs, the House did not.  So if you’re still using analogs, you will be completely screwed in less than 3 weeks.  Don’t you just love the government?

Kelly Clarkson: Move over, Britney.  Clarkson just broke your Billboard record for largest jump–a whopping 98 spots thanks to the sudden popularity of her song My Life Would Suck Without You.  Perhaps Brit Brit’s would be better with Clarkson??

Jay Leno: Oprah should move over, too.  A new survey shows that Jay Leno reigns supreme among TV personalities.  I would’ve been inclined to say women don’t care for Leno, but then men generally don’t care for O.  So maybe they’re even?

NBC: Among their planned pilots is Day One, about a post-apocalyptic Earth.  It’s one thing to see that in a two-hour movie.  But a whole series?  Watching that week after week would probably freak us out.

Ashton Kutcher: On Twitter and apparently got wife Demi Moore to join.  Will Rumer be next?

Kelly Rowland: The former Destiny’s Child member fired her longtime manager–who just so happens to be Beyonce’s dad.  Supposedly the split was “amicable” but there’s gotta be more to it, right?!

Prison Break: Life is imitating art in Michigan.  A man purposely robbed a gas station and mini-mart in hopes of joining his brother in jail.  That’s one more thing to weigh on your conscience, Michael Scofield!

Blagojevich: Has “won” according to Gawker simply because his media tour showed he was a “harmless lovable nut.”  However, Dan Abrams over at The Daily Beast says he’s a “PR catastrophe.”

SIZZLED OUT: The First Wives Club

STILL SIZZLING: This TV chef is planning a huge party for SXSW, complete with the resiquite indie bands.  Maybe she deserves some cool points after all!

Looks good to us!

Looks good to us!

Jessica Simpson: Just the latest star to get slammed online for gaining weight.  Like it’s a crime to be a size 8!  Surprisingly, sister Ashlee made a great case on her blog as to why we should just leave Jessica–and all women–alone.

Slumdog Millionaire: The families of the child actors that played Latika and Salim are alleging they’ve been exploited by the film’s execs and production company.  Could this be the end of Slumdog’s positive press run?

The Reader: Will get to submit 4 producer names in the Oscars Best Picture category instead of the usual 3, since two of those producers (sadly) died partway through production.  Sounds fair, no?

Lisa Kudrow: Producing a new reality show where celebs such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Susan Sarandon research their families.  Sounds fascinating, just like most reality shows.

Facebook: Seems like every day there’s a hoard of new fan pages.  Most popular page: Barack Obama.  Wonder how long til that ends?

Facebook Pt. 2: A new study suggests how many friends you have in life are related to your genes.  And now Gawker is trying to use to that to explain Facebook and a user’s popularity.  Something got lost in translation, no?

Joaquin Phoenix: Entertainment Weekly says they have sources that prove Phoenix’s foray into rapping is a “hoax.”  Yawn.

PETA: Their ad for the Superbowl was rejected but it seems they won out in the end (and it was all purposefully done) to attract people to view it–and PETA’s message–online.  The ad is pretty scandalous, we must admit.

Tyra Banks: Getting the “exellence in media” award from GLAAD.  Never thought the two had much in common but guess we’re wrong.

Twitter: If you’re on it, you should follow NUTwitProject and help some students try to save the world.  Okay, not really.  But you should still follow them and answer their questions!

SIZZLED OUT: Ugly Betty

STILL SIZZLING: Looks like someone new does in fact own them!  This classic 90s feminist movie is headed to Broadway.

Not everyone's favorite piano man

Not everyone's favorite piano man

24: The new season is just getting started and you better cherish every second of it.  Star Kiefer Sutherland says he could see next year being the last but that it’s ultimately up to the audience.  Funny, we thought it was up to the network!  Since when do audiences ever get their say?

Oprah: Though she was “amused” by Blagojevic saying he considered her to replace Obama in the Illinois senate, O also says she thinks she would’ve done a good job!

DWTS: Not sure if this is good news or bad but Kevin Federline will not be appearing on the next season.

Supernatural: The show suffered a devastating loss on Sunday when one of its executive producers passed away from cancer.  Not sure yet if/how this will affect the show’s future but that probably isn’t the most important thing right now.

Terrell Owens: Getting his own VH1 reality show. Just what we need.  Not that there ever is a reality show we need…

Digital TV: If you haven’t made the switch yet, you could have four more months to do so if the House and Senate can agree.  The Senate, at President Obama’s urging, already passed the bill.

The Real World: Leaving the country next season to travel oh so far away to Cancun.  We’re still waiting for The Real World: Long Island or, at the very least, The Hamptons.

Variety: The latest to be hit with layoffs.  Our job prospects are decreasing by the day…

Defamer: Making the bold prediction that The Curious Case of Benjamin Button will go 0-for-13 at the Oscars next month.

Slate: Making the even bolder claim that Billy Joel is “the worst pop singer ever.”  That is extremely harsh, even for them.  Jossip fired back with a list of their own.

SIZZLED OUT: Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls)

STILL SIZZLING: This once popular series will be unexpectedly going on a long hiatus soon.  Hope this doesn’t mean things are gonna get ugly!

Do you see any resemblance?

Do you see any resemblance?

SAG: Best quote of the night goes to Meryl Streep, who said “I didn’t even buy a dress!” while expressing her shock that she won best actress in a drama for Doubt.

Drew Barrymore: Ready and willing to make a Charlie’s Angels 3.  We never saw the first two!

Prince Harry: Cancel the royal wedding!  The heir to the throne split with his girlfriend of five years.  The brightside: ladies, you are this much closer to one day being queen!

Obama: No word from the president yet but the Mrs. sure ain’t happy that Ty is releasing dolls that look just like First Daughters Sasha and Malia.  More important: what do THEY think?  Bet they love it!

Molly Ringdwald: Now that she’s preggers with twins, her TV daughter won’t be the only one having a baby on The Secret Life of the American Teenager.  Makes for a great storyline, no?

Rumer Willis: In a new interview, Willis opens up about how Ashton Kutcher went from being her favorite posterboy to her stepdad.  Awkkkkwardddd.

SIZZLED OUT: Patrick Swayze

STILL SIZZLING: This soon-to-be Broadway star is torn about doing a movie version of her mother-daughter TV series.  We say go for it!
