Saying 'Take that, Angie!'?

Saying 'Take that, Angie!'?

90210: Still in “talks” with Tori Spelling.  We don’t even care anymore.

Jennifer Aniston: We love when she talks about Brangelina!  Here’s a new gem: “‘The funny thing is, people don’t realize we all go away to The Hamptons on the weekends,” jokes Aniston. “That’d be hysterical: I’ve got Zahara on my hip, and Knox…'” Great sense of humor!

Golden Globes: Nominations are out.  Oscar noms still to come.  What’s the difference?  Not much.

50 Cent: “Addicted” to success, he says.  And if there were a rehab for it, he’d go.  Somehow we doubt that.

James Frey: Interned for Gawker yesterday.  Doesn’t get much more random than that.

SAG: The strike could come as soon as January!  The 120,000 members will receive authorization ballots in the mail.

NPR: Cutting seven percent of its staff.  We should probably just change careers now.

TV Squad: Believes eliminating piracy–aka allowing “illegal” downloads–could save the industry.  Interesting logic.

Jay Leno: His primetime deal could usher in an era of even more less-scripted TV.  After all, now NBC will have more hours of talk shows than any other kind.

NBA: You can watch basketball in 3-D on Valentine’s Day if you don’t have a date.  Or maybe, even if you do.

Barney: The “I Love You, You Love Me Song” is being used to torture prisoners in Guantanamo.  We couldn’t make this shit up if we tried!

SIZZLED OUT: DMX

STILL SIZZLING: This actor says, in 8 years, he wants to have a film on Barack Obama ready–with him as the star!

There goes our future...

There goes our future...

Mash-Ups: We are loving the mash-ups of rap songs and children’s programs.  Some combinations: Spongebob and Eminem, Family Guy and Akon, Barney and Soulja Boy, etc. Pretty hysterical.

Kanye West: Forget music.  Kanye is switching gears (or industries) and looking for an internship in the fashion world.  Something tells us he won’t like getting coffee for the higher-ups, but we’ll let him figure that out all on his own.

Viacom: Laid off a whopping 850 people today at MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, Comedy Central and other subsidiaries.  Not a good day.

MTV: Holy crap!  Long-time correspondent John Norris is supposedly one of the fired employees!  What is the world coming to?!

NBC: And the ax continues to fall.  500 employees cut.

Eliot Spitzer: Don’t count the former gov down and out.  He’s been hired by Slate to write a column on goverment regulation.  To all wondering, this does not include prostitution.

The Daily Beast: Great piece on why Gwyneth Paltrow’s new site (which goes by the oh-so-attractive name GOOP) is a big mistake.

Bratz: Victory for Barbie collections everywhere!  A judge has ordered production on Bratz dolls to cease immediately (and for stores to send back their stock!) since the (ugly) dolls were conceived by a dude who worked for Mattel at the time.  Ah, sweet revenge!

Sundance: No less than 3 journalism/media films in the mix.  We’re dying to see The September Issue, which follows Anna Wintour and the production of Vogue’s September issue.

Chicago Magazine: Has a really interesting article on Amy Jacobson, the news reporter fired for “misconduct” when she tried to interview Craig Steib, whose wife remains missing.
