Prince Charming and his Sleeping Beauty.  All together now: awwwwwwww!

Prince Charming and his Sleeping Beauty. All together now: awwwwwwww!

Zac Efron: Completely in love with the above picture of him and Vanessa Hudgens.  Very fitting that two of Disney’s biggest stars recreated a major fictional Disney couple for this portrait.  Just beautiful!

The View: In his first-ever appearance on the show, Jimmy Kimmel thought it’d be funny to come out dressed as former co-host Rosie O’Donnell.  Clever but we all know there doesn’t need to be any more fuel added to that fire.  Wonder if Ro will respond on her blog?

The View Pt. 2: But Babs, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, insists she “can never be mad at Rosie.”  Again, wonder if Ro will respond on her blog?

Oprah: Doing a special show this Thursday, alongside Tyra Banks, “dedicated to all the Rihannas of the world.”  Again, should fuel be added to this particular (and personal–as in, just between Rihanna and Chris Brown) fire–or is this a great way to give a very important topic (domestic violence) some much-needed exposure?

TMZ: Head honco Harvey Levin wholeheartedly believes (as if we couldn’t tell this already) that the mainstream media should be covering Rihanna/Chris Brown even more.  Levin, meet Oprah.

Gilmore Girls: If watching it on ABC Family isn’t enough, the entire series is also coming to SOAPNet, one of our favorite channels!

SIZZLED OUT: Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel

STILL SIZZLING: She’s no longer an Idol contestant, but get used to hearing this gal’s voice during every elimination episode.

Just another couple we'd like to see get back together!

Just another couple we wish would get back together!

EW: Another Twilight cover?  Really?!  Enough!  This is the third one in mere months and the second in weeks!  Total overkill.

Twitter: Major source of communication as the Mumbai attacks unfolded.

Orlando Bloom: Despite reports to the contrary, he is not engaged.  Still with Miranda Kerr, though.  Guess getting back together with Kate Bosworth is still out of the question.

Rosie O’Donnell: So the variety show tanked but does that mean you have to cave on everything?! The so-called feud between her and Barbara Walters is over, as far as Rosie’s concerned.  “Here’s my new motto,” Rosie wrote on her blog.  “Whatever she says, goes.  The end.”  That doesn’t sound like the Ro we know and love!

John Travolta: Says Richard Gere and Tom Hanks have a career thanks to him.  (He turned down parts that they ended up getting).  He’s joking.  We think.

Paris Hilton: Finished a second album, which she says she wrote all on her own.  This may not be the worst thing ever.  Stars Are Blind was pretty catchy.

Cable TV: May soon dominate the television ratings.  Based on the fall output from the major networks, we can easily see how.

SIZZLED OUT: Lil Wayne

STILL SIZZLING: Is two months two soon to introduce your girlfriend to your family?  Based on track record in a different arena, this champion must think he can’t lose.

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?!

Oh, Brandon, you're too pretty to be angry!

Oh, Brandon, you're too pretty to be angry!

Madonna: Reportedly reached a settlement with soon-to-be ex-husband Guy Ritchie.  How many of you are disappointed there won’t be a long, drawn-out court fight?

90210: No new episodes until January.  We think this is a good thing.  Buddy TV just wrote a pretty fair assessment of the first half of the season, though we probably would’ve been a bit harsher.

90210 Pt. 2: Up for Favorite New Television Drama at the People’s Choice Awards.  Absurd.  Totally absurd.  See above.

DWTS: When Julianne Hough was eliminated the other night, we had no idea it would be her last time on the show, like, ever!  She says she doesn’t plan on returning next season, and singing will be her primary focus.  Blasphemous!

Salon: Named Robert Downey Jr. the Sexiest Man Living.  Blatant rip-off of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive.

Wall-E: Quite possibly more popular with adults than kids.  Considering the film went over even our heads a little, we can believe that.

The Killers: What happens when you misquote one of their lyrics?  Brandon Flowers gets very, very angry.

PC Magazine: Will be on-line only in the future.  On the one hand, this makes complete sense for a mag all about computers.  On the other hand, it’s just more bad news for the industry.

Rosie O’Donnell: Promises controversy-free fun on next week’s Rosie Live.  “The job description here is to entertain. … It will be an hour of fun, laughter, singing and dancing,” she said.  We wish we were in the audience!

The View: In response to another part of the above interview, where Rosie reflects on her frustrating times at The View, Babs said today (on-air) that Rosie needs to move on with her life.  She kinda is, though, no?  It’s not Ro’s fault the interviewers keep asking her questions that rehash old shit!

Jennifer Hudson and her late mother, Darnell

Jennifer Hudson and her late mother, Darnell

Jennifer Hudson: After finding out her mother and brother were murdered yesterday, the actress-singer has returned home to Chicago.  Hudson’s nephew is still missing and the FBI have joined the investigation, though a suspect–allegedly the boy’s father–is in custody. We can’t imagine the pain Hudson, who lost her father when she was a teen (and just got engaged last month), feels right now and we hope we’ll never have to.

Fall Out Boy: Trying to break a world record by appearing on more than 57 radio shows in a given day.  ‘Cause, you know, that’s cool.

DWTS: Reports are circulating that there’s beef between Cloris and the rest of the cast–though denials are being issued, too.  We all know they’re just upset that an 82-year-old has made it this far in the competition.

The View: Should the co-hosts not be allowed to wear politically-inspired clothing on the show?  That’s the latest coming from Barbara Walters after McCain-lover Elisabeth Hasselbeck sported a shirt for him on the show.  Stepping on free speech?  We’re undecided.

The CW: The network is no longer considered near-death thanks to the ratings improvement for Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill and the (questionable) success of 90210.  Though this makes us happy, we’re not gonna lie: we miss the WB.

Palin: Should she get a gig hosting a talk show if the whole VP thing doesn’t work out?  We’re thinking no.  If she doesn’t win for veep, obviously people don’t like her so why would they watch her show?

David Giuntoli: Who said there isn’t life after MTV?  This former no-name has parlayed a few seasons on Road Rules (and the spin-off challenges) into a role on Privileged.  Apparently he also kissed a dude on Grey’s Anatomy.  Who knew?

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Which megastar’s girlfriend is doing some of her own recording?  Perhaps they think it will help bring sexy back to their relationship.
