Want her face?

Want her face?

SNL: Why are people so surprised by the return of Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton?  Aside from the fact that Poehler recently had a baby, we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of Clinton on the show since she accepted the media-heavy position of Secretary of State.

Twilight: The film franchise has hit its first stumbling block: Catherine Hardwicke and Summit have parted ways.  Hardwicke will not direct the sequel, and the reason allegedly goes deeper than a simple schedule conflict.

Kanye West: NOT on Twitter!

David Gregory: The worst kept secret of late is a secret no more.  NBC officially announced Gregory as the new host of Meet the Press.

Obama: Said on the aforementioned show he won’t be smoking in the White House.  So will that be the first promise he breaks?

Tribune Company: Bankruptcy is on the horizon.  You know what follows?  More lay offs. Blek.

Barbra Streisand: Forced to share face time with arch enemy President Bush as she was honored by the Kennedy Center.  Thankfully, no blood was shed.

Facebook: Beware of the Koobface virus!

PEOPLE: Redemption!  The New York Times public editor is criticizing the piece the paper ran last month bashing PEOPLE.  Turns out the NYT got some facts wrong!  Will a retraction follow?  We sure hope so.

NYT: Not sure we should trust them anymore (see above) but they’ve just released their list of the 10 best books of 2008.  We’ve read approximately none of them.

Roger Ebert: Has “had it” with years of top 10 lists.  So what did he do instead?  Made a top 20 list.

SIZZLED OUT: Angelina Jolie and Halle Berry

STILL SIZZLING: We’re turning the tables on you.  What juicy riddle do you have?  We’ll print the best one tomorrow!

Goodbye Tina, hello baby!

Goodbye Tina, hello baby!

Amy Poehler: Expect her to be out of SNL for a while.  She gave birth yesterday to a little comedian.

Jennnifer Hudson:
Used her MySpace blog to thank her fans for their support and well-wishes.  Also made a heartfelt plea for the return of her still-missing nephew.

Obama: Sent condolences to Hudson and family.  Publicity stunt or heartfelt concern for a fellow Chicagoan?

Anne Pressly: The Arkansas news anchor was severely beaten in a botched burglary last week.  She has since died of her injuries.  Too much death lately.  Let’s hope for a better November.

Anchorage Daily News: The major Alaskan newspaper has endorsed Obama.  That should tell you something.

Denis Leary: Not too long ago we told you Leary was having a war of words about autism.  His new topic?  His right to say gay slurs.  We have a feeling he’s going to come out of this 0 for 2.

Gossip Girl: Turns out the cast has gotten in trouble for leaking spoilers.  Oh well.

SIZZLED OUT: Justin Timberlake/Jessica Biel

STILL SIZZLING: The exec of this cult show got so angry at fans’ comments about a recent episode that he just released a statement defending his creative decisions.
