Do you agree with PEOPLE's choice?

Do you agree with PEOPLE's choice?

Chris Brown: If attorney Mark Geragos has his way, the case against Chris Brown will be dismissed.  Geragos is arguing that the case is tainted due to media leaks and should be thrown out.  It’s a big longshot but who knows what’ll happen?

Christina Applegate: Earned the top spot on PEOPLE’s annual Most Beautiful list.  Not a bad choice but not exactly someone we think is drop-dead gorgeous.  But this is about inner beauty, too, and she definitely has that.

Obama: Last night’s press conference reportedly cost the 3 big networks more than $20 million.  Are we wrong in thinking that’s peanuts for this industry?

Sean Penn: She cried in happiness for his wins during award seasons but that wasn’t enough to stop Penn from filing for a legal separation from wife Robin Wright Penn.  Hate when families can’t make it work.

Swine flu: This is an interesting thought.  Might the potential pandemic cause a rise in TV ratings?  If people are avoiding the outdoors, they might just turn to the old-fashioned television set for entertainment…

Swine flu Pt. 2: Contrary to rumors, the illness did not affect production on the The Real World: Cancun.  While it’s good no one got sick, it definitely would’ve added some new drama to the mix.

SIZZLED OUT: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

STILL SIZZLING: This model turned talk-show host appeared in court yesterday testifying against an alleged stalker.  The star hopes he’ll be walking the runway straight to jail.

Indirectly supporting Obama with a pre-inaguration concert

Indirectly supporting Obama with a pre-inauguration concert

Brad Pitt: Calls Jennifer Aniston a “sweetheart” in a new interview and says any drama between Jen and Angelina is “created” by the media. Also adds that the way he and Angie got together was “respectful.”  Jen might disagree with that…

Fashion Week: The economy is even taking its toll on one of the most anticipated week’s in fashion.  Several top designers have decided not to hold runway shows this year at the usually extravagant Fashion Week in New York City.  Though if you ask the designers themselves, they’ll tell you the economy has nothing to do with it.

Obama: Even if you can’t attend the inauguration in person, you can still get a close look thanks to HBO which will be airing the festivities.  The best part: you don’t even have to be an HBO subscriber to watch!

Jay-Z: But if you will be in D.C., Jay-Z is holding a special concert the night before the ceremony.

Golden Globes: Maybe it’s wrong of us to be so happy about this but the Globes will be handing out this year significantly smaller gift bags to celebs.

Entertainment Weekly: An editorial shake-up has one of our favorite PEOPLE editors, Jess Cagle, leaving the mag and becoming managing editor at EW.  Guess we can live with that.

Jossip: Among what they call the “worst” blogs out there (we’re not on it, whew!) are celebrity Twitter and MySpace pages.  We beg to differ.

#1 album in the country!

#1 album in the country!

Mark Ruffalo: So yesterday we said the suspect was in custody.  She’s since been released now that there’s evidence pointing to suicide!

Britney: New album topped the charts.  Comeback complete or just beginning?

Tom Cruise: This week’s PEOPLE cover story.  Finally, a TomKat feature by a reputable magazine!

Brad Pitt: Says, predictably, that he and Angie weren’t too happy about last month’s NYT piece that called her manipulative. “[They’re] talking about not only the woman I love, but one of the people on this planet who I have the greatest respect for.”  Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Pete Wentz: Named Travis McCoy (of Gym Class Heroes) godfather of Bronx Mowgli.  Why not Pete Stump or one of the other Fall Out Boy bandmates?  (Sidenote:  now McCoy says he and GF Katy Perry have baby fever!)

Ricky Martin: Releasing photos of his twins, born via surrogate.  No romantic details, though, which is obviously what people really want.  The photos, though, apparently are good enough for the cover of PEOPLE En Espanol.

Fantasia: The economy is affecting (wannabe) stars, too.  The Idol winner has to auction her home.  This comes after needing a loan to pay her taxes.

Rolling Stone: Doing layoffs but still making lists.  TV on the Radio put out the album of the year and Beyonce’s Single Ladies is the top single.

Yahoo: To add insult to injury, the script used to tell thousands they lost their job today has leaked to the ‘net.  Bet that makes them feel reallllll good.  Also, it’s worth taking a look at Yahoo’s history.

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!

where's Clare?!

Where's Clare?!

90210: Season 6 of the original came out on DVD and, of course, we bought our copy first thing this morning.   The first of many letdowns: there aren’t any special features, just like there weren’t for season 5.  Don’t understand that at all, especially since the ones for seasons 1-4 were pretty good.

90210 Pt. 2: Why is the cast photo on the cover incomplete?  Kathleen Robertson, a series regular, is nowhere to be seen!  Then, on the DVDs themselves, David and Val are missing and pics of Brandon and Kelly are repeated.

90210 Pt. 3 The description on the box’s back says these eps take place “outside the college campus.”  Excuse us, but we’re pretty sure CU is relevant to the entire season.  And check out this episode description: “Dylan is bored to death at his bachelor party.”  That’s the episode where his wife actually dies and Dylan leaves town.  Way to mince words and bury (or not even include!) the lede!

DWTS: The winning duo won’t be crowned til later tonight but one critic thinks the judges already made it blatantly clear who is going to win.

Brad Pitt: Has he been “pardoned” for cheating on Jen with Angie?  We think so.  But we’re so not okay with that!

Obama: A fun(ny) look at what might happen to magazines if the Obama fascination continues.

Twitter: Worth $500 million?  Facebook says no.  And as much as we like out tweets, we have to agree.  That’s a lot of money!

Facebook: Scratch that.  $500 million is pocket-change when compared to $873 million.  Facebook was just awarded that hefty sum in a lawsuit against a major spammer.  Odds are they won’t see most of the money, though.  No wonder they won’t buy Twitter!

Vanity Fair: Who cares if no one has any jobs, we’re still going to party!  That seems to be VF’s mentality

Batman: The comic book will kill off the caped crusader in a future issue.  What does this mean for the film franchise?

Good thing we're thirsty!

Good thing we're thirsty!

Britney: Think the only place her life and career can go from here is up?  Think again.

Angelina Jolie: Doesn’t just control how the general press covers her but also controls PEOPLE Magazine?

Paris Hilton: Said on the radio this morning that she did not dump Benji and cheating was not the cause of their break-up, contrary to reports.  She’s still “in love with him” and their future remains open.

Jodie Sweetin: The Full House star who showed off her happy marriage and infant daughter recently has filed for divorce for her husband.  They’ve been married less than a year and were working on a reality show and a memoir.  As Stephanie might say, how rude!

Taylor Swift: Actually admitted she likes reading PerezHilton.com.  Not a smart move, Taylor.

Dr. Pepper: They promised free soda for everyone if Chinese Democracy was ever released and now they’re making good!

The View: Is Ro vs. Babs round 983248934891 just a publicity stunt?  A fair question, no?

Was this foreshadowing?

Was this foreshadowing?

Ashlee Simpson: Gave birth last night to a boy named Bronx Mowgli.  We have a feeling dad Pete Wentz picked the name.  At least he wasn’t kidding earlier this week when he said fatherhood was “imminent.”

PEOPLE: That Sexiest Man Alive issue will feature scratch and sniff.  Even WE are creeped out.

Reese Witherspoon: Now we know for sure not to believe any tabloid that says Reese and Jake are headed to the altar.  The star herself says she’s not ready to remarry now, if ever.

Jennifer Aniston: Admits she’s computer illiterate and thinks Facebook is like “dancing with the devil.”  Sure she wasn’t talking about Angelina?

Jennifer Aniston Pt. 2: Loves watching FRIENDS repeats.  Ego trip?  She also says she watches some of the episodes and doesn’t actually remember doing them or what they were about.   We never understand celebs when they say that!  We remember every little detail of every little episode and we didn’t even make the damn things!  What’s your excuse?

ABC: The ax has fallen on not one, not two but THREE shows: Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money.  Is there anything left?!

CW: Did some cancellations of its own but none that we really care about.  Just the out-sourced shows that aired for a millisecond on Sunday nights.  In are repeats…of Jericho?  Weird.  That show was prematurely canceled itself!

Gossip Girl: To be honest, we don’t really understand this.  According to Ausiello, Connor Paolo (Eric) declined an offer to become a series regular yet will still stay on the show and somehow this is better for his career.  Whatevs.

SNL: People are speculating why Justin and Beyonce’s Single Ladies sketch isn’t available on-line.  Some say it’s JT’s fault because he wanted to be paid residuals.  Others say it’s just a “music clearance issue.”  How long til somebody caves?

SNL Pt. 2: Did last week’s show seem especially ‘gay’ to you?  Headwriter Seth Meyers was asked that very same question.

Heroes: The creator is blaming the show’s decline on DVR.  And now a TIME writer is taking him to task for not accepting responsibility.

Obama: Shows are seizing on the opportunity to name-drop the president-elect.  It’s actually kinda cool and makes them seem more real, we think.

Obama Pt. 2: The Washington Post takes an interesting look on whether it really matters if O has in fact quit smoking.

Roger Ebert: We love self-deprecation!  Ebert shows how good he is at it–and how he can be poignant at the same time–when he looks back on how his appearance has changed over the years.

Rosie O’Donnell: We LOVE her response to Babs’ insults on yesterday’s View.  Classic Ro.

Twitter: Now being used by Shaquille O’Neal.  Does that mean it’s time for us to stop?

SIZZLED OUT: Winona Ryder

STILL SIZZLING: This guy is the latest to be caught on camera with his pants down. But what will the queen say?!
