Will her 15 minutes of fame end even with a 'Dancing' win?

Will her 15 minutes of fame end even with a 'Dancing' win?

American Idol: The season culminates tonight–and tomorrow–with the final face-off between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.  Is it bad that we don’t have a preference?

DWTS: The season also culminates for this show tonight.  (Coincidence?) But a new article suggests winning ultimately means very little for your career.  Poor Melissa Rycroft.

Fox: Unveiled its fall schedule yesterday with six new shows, including Glee which will actually premiere this week.  None of them interest us but that’s probably for the best.  We can’t handle any more television commitments!

Christina Applegate: It quickly went from a great month to a bad one for Applegate, now that her show Samantha Who? was officially canceled. Bet she’s hoping that PEOPLE cover will lead to a new gig.

Social Media: Gotta love getting instant-reaction from celebs on everything as mundane as daily errands to earthquakes.  Thanks, SM.

Newsweek: Need to pick up the new issue to check out its massive redesign.  Curious to know all your thoughts, too!

SIZZLED OUT: 90210

STILL SIZZLING: Someone bid $13,000 to intern at this on-line publication, one that’s mostly known for letting nearly anyone with an opinion do a blog post.

No one messes with my mama!

No one messes with my mama!

Chuck: After delaying an announcement either way, fans can rest easy knowing Chuck and co. will be back for at least a little while.  NBC gave a 13-episode order, a sign of minimal commitment.

Brooke Shields: This is probably the most bizarre story we’ve heard in a while.  Shields is accusing reporters from the National Enquirer of going to her mother’s nursing home and checking her out in hopes of conjuring a story for the tabloid.  Well, they’ve certainly got a story now…

Precious: Very moved by the trailer for this film, starring–of all people–Mariah Carey.  If it’s good enough for Sundance and Cannes, Ms. Carey must’ve done something right.

Wuthering Heights: They’re remaking the film for the umpteenth time with a Gossip boy as the lead.  We still need to read the book.

New York Times: Jayson Blair may be long gone but that doesn’t means the days of on-staff plagiarism are over.  Just look to Maureen Dowd for proof.

SIZZLED OUT: Richard Hatch

STILL SIZZLING: This freshmen series will conclude its first season tomorrow night and return in the fall, even though viewers are hightailing  it out of the zip code.

Battle of the Blondes Part Deux?

Battle of the Blondes Part Deux?

Daytime Emmys: Unveiled the nominations this week with some very interesting choices–or lack thereof: no noms for The View or soap icon Susan Lucci and very few for Guiding Light which needs all the help it can get these days.  Sniff sniff.

Pink: Confirmed that she and Carey Hart are back together.  Makes us very happy. They just seem like a good fit.

The Hills: Back in the day, we were quite obsessed with the Kristin vs. LC fight over Stephen Colletti.  (For the record, we wanted him with LC!) So it’s quite interesting to hear that Kristin will take Lauren’s place on The Hills.  And yet, we still won’t watch the show…

Jay Leno: Here’s an interesting theory: because not everyone likes the funny man and won’t want to be subjected to him as early as 10pm, more viewers will switch to cable channels.  Don’t see why they just wouldn’t flip to another broadcast channel…

SIZZLED OUT: Wanda Sykes

STILL SIZZLING: This iconic reality show winner is being released from jail after evading income taxes on his prize winnings.

Does she top your list?

Does she top your list?

American Idol: Down to the final two.  Next week should be pretty great.

Jon & Kate Plus Eight: Really don’t understand all the hubbub surrounding the Gosselin family.  Is it really worthy of the cover of PEOPLE Magazine?!

Beyonce: Tied with T.I. for most BET Awards nominations.  The show will air in June, hosted by Jamie Foxx.

Shanna Moakler: Resigned from the Miss USA organization following the controversy with Miss California, Carrie Prejean.  Does that mean we’ll be getting Meet the Barkers 2 soon?

Olivia Wilde: Feel like most people are going “who?” at the news that Wilde tops Maxim’s Hot 100 list but we’ve been a fan of her since her days on The O.C.!

The Cosby Show: As we come up on the show’s 25th anniversary, Variety is wondering if the show would make the cut today.  In a post-Obama world, we say yes.

Blink-182: Will tour this summer with Fall Out Boy and Weezer.  That’s one heckuva lineup!  Sounds like exactly where we want to be…

SIZZLED OUT: Cassie

STILL SIZZLING: This female comedian, who only recently publicly admitted to being gay, announced yesterday that she’s now the mother of twins.

On Hiatus!

Is he the next American Idol?

Is he the next American Idol?

American Idol: He hasn’t even won–yet–and already Adam Lambert has his first solo magazine cover story.  Entertainment Weekly gave him the honor, apparently in part because of his ambiguous sexuality.

American Idol Pt. 2: Did you know this is the first time the final 3 contestants were all male?  We had no idea!

Paula Abdul: This is probably the first time we’ve ever seen Ladies Home Journal accused of fabrication but the Idol judge is doing it and doing it strongly.  Just days after the magazine released a cover story where Abdul admits to a past drug addiction, the singer is claiming she never said–or had–any such thing.  Well, someone’s lying…

Susan Boyle: You know you’ve really made it big when you appear on Oprah.  And Boyle will do just that…sort of.  She’ll appear via Oprah’s favorite new thing, Skype.

Prison Break: With only a week left til the series finale, Fox’s latest promo product left critics stumped: a bar of soap.  But The Advocate and GLAAD think they’ve figured out the insinuation–prison rape–and they’re not happy about it.

ABC: Debuted its new “music lounge” yesterday, a radio-like offering with songs that are heard on shows like Grey’s Anatomy. Sounds like a smaller version of iTunes to us.

SIZZLED OUT: A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez by Serena Roberts

STILL SIZZLING: This R & B singer is just the latest celebrity to have nude photos hit the web–but while she calls the act of stealing private things “evil,” she says she’s not bothered by the exposure.

Causing trouble?

Causing trouble?

American Idol: Ryan Seacrest’s “right hand”–and by that, we mean one of his crew members–suffered an injury during rehearsal when the movable staircase malfunctioned.  Seacrest tweeted later that she was “doing much better.”

Kirstie Alley: Her post-Jenny Craig weight gain earned her the cover of this week’s PEOPLE.  At least she consented to the article.  Would really hate if it was a write-around, like the Jessica Simpson cover stories from a few months ago.

Kiefer Sutherland: The 24 actor reportedly had a little scuffle outside a Met Costume Gala after-party.  Doesn’t he know the goal of each day should be avoiding getting sent to jail again?!

Ryan Reynolds: Following the success of Wolverine, Reynolds will reprise his role as Deadpool in his own spin-off flick.  To be honest, we haven’t seen any X-Men movies but Reynolds isn’t really the superhero type…

Sizzlemaker: Did an interview with SisterDivas Magazine about Sizzle and other blogs. Check it out!

SIZZLED OUT: 50 Cent

STILL SIZZLING: This unauthorized biography wasn’t exactly a home run.  In fact, despite recent controversey, sales have been quite lackluster.
