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.

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?

A surprising choice, no?  Can't wait to see how it sells on newsstands.

A surprising choice, no? Can't wait to see how it sells on newsstands.

PEOPLE: Named Hugh Jackman the 2008 Sexiest Man Alive.   Not a bad choice, though we probably would’ve gone with someone a little younger.

Britney: In previews for her upcoming documentary, she finally admits she married for the “wrong reason.”  And how long til she does it again?

Star Trek: Admittedly we know nothing about Trek but this video really made us smile.  It’s a mash-up of the movie’s new trailer and the 90210 theme song.  Works quite well!

Brian Austin Green: Still with Transformers star Megan Fox and planning their wedding.  We’ve been hoping for a reunion with babymama (and former 90210 co-star) Vanessa Marcil but it doesn’t look like that’ll be happening.

Ashley Dupre: No surprise that the former call girl’s first interview is with PEOPLE.  Will Spitzer issue a response?

DWTS: Cody Linley (NOT Miley’s BF) cried after being voted off last night.  Julianne Hough is calling him the next Brad Pitt but we dont think Bradley would cry about this.

Reality TV: Who would’ve thought that all we needed was a recession to start reality TV’s decline?  As much as it pains us to say this, keep it coming!

Newsweek: Here’s a new one.  Rather than flat-out canceling their Christmas party, they’re just moving it to April.  Riiiiight.

Beauty and the Beast: It’s a tale as old as time, and it’s going 3-D.  Our favorite Disney movie EVER is being remade into 3-D format, all with its original footage.  We can’t wait!

One of the cutest--and apparently most influential--tots around

One of the cutest--and apparently most influential--tots around

Obama: Is it offensive to rewrite The Jefferson’s theme song with the new first family in mind? An elementary school principal in Tennessee is taking a lot of heat for doing just that. To be fair, the song is pretty catchy.

Obama Pt. 2: Inauguration plans are already underway. Not known yet is which music superstars will get to perform but E!Online is already rounding up the troops. (No, not those troops.)

NBC: Developing a new show called Making Friends With Black People. Yeah, cause that isn’t offensive at all.

Lipstick Jungle: Brooke Shields wasn’t lying! NBC either never canceled the show at all or, at the very least, is giving it another chance. Take two, everyone!

Jennifer Aniston: The chica just can’t catch a break. The latest: Alec Baldwin called kissing her on 30 Rock “painful.” Aw, leave the poor girl alone! Losing Brad was bad enough.

South Park: The show isn’t ending til 2011 but we already know the format: another full-length movie. Lucky us. Or not.

Dreamgirls: Embarking on a tour sans the famous names that made it such a success.  Broadway could be next.

Forbes: Okay, they’ve officially taken their most influential lists too far. Most Influential (celebrity) Infants is just so not necessary. But, for the record, the adorable Shiloh Jolie-Pitt took the top spot.

The Roots: They’ll be the house band when Jimmy Fallon takes over The Late Show. Guess that’s more interesting than a band plucked from nowhere.

Miley Cyrus: Says she can’t predict the future (no, really??) but wants Hannah Montana to continue “as long as it can.” How much is Disney paying her to say that?

Cars 2: It’s coming but, sadly, without the late Paul Newman. We’ll see Doc Hudson again, though the creators still haven’t figured out how.

Meh: It’s one of our favorite go-to words and now it’s officially in the dictionary. And, by the way, you can thank The Simpsons for that. Or just, you know, go meh.

Fall TV: If by some chance you actually liked one of the canceled shows, this handy list suggests alternatives that don’t actually suck.

Arianna Huffington: The blogger extraordinaire promises to raise funds to keep investigative journalism alive and well. Entertainment journalism never gets any love.

Facebook: How far is too far? In a new interview (conducted over instant message!), Mark Zuckerberg says he dreams of a day where the social networking site is even more personal than it currently is. We thought that already happened. It’s called The Patriot Act.

Variety: Is it really Oscar season if there’s no campaigning? What, you didn’t know the studios actually shell out tons of cash for ads to sway the Academy’s votes? They do. (Just like real politics!) But not anymore. Dun dun dunnnnnnnnn.

Journalism: So there’s no future in magazines. And now the blogging future is looking bleak, too. Good thing we gave up yesterday.

SIZZLED OUT: Mark Cuban

STILL SIZZLING: Riding the wave of superhero flicks, X-Men: First Class will be written by this wunderkind who is best known to teen girls.

It's not easy being pretty

It's not easy being pretty

Donald Trump: Who knew the billionaire had a heart?  He’s been housing Jennifer Hudson and her relatives in his super-elite building in Chicago.

Brad Pitt: Even grown men want to cop a feel off Bradley!  Pitt was “manhandled” by his own security guard at his own movie screening.  Can’t say we blame the guy.

Jennifer Aniston: And how’s this for understatement of the year: Jen says Angelina’s homewrecking ways were “uncool.”  We were expecting something a little more colorful.

Blake Lively: Has landed on the cover of yet another magazine.  Among the so-called revelations in the interview: she has 60 handbags (in two closets), actually gets along with Leighton Meester and can memorize a 4-page scene instantly.  Sadly, no dish on her and Penn.  Now that would be revelatory!

Forbes: They have a new top-10 list: most influential stars.  No one on it is really surprising: Clooney, Jolie, Hanks, blah, blah, blah.

Jesse Metcalfe: After disappearing from the public eye, this is surely an attention-grabbing way to make your comeback.  The former Desperate Housewives star fell 40 feet off a balcony at a party for the World Music Awards.  Thankfully, he wasn’t too injured but is still under a hospital’s care.

Jaden Smith: No longer content appearing alongside dad Will in bit parts, the 10-year-old will take a starring turn in a remake of The Karate Kid.  Good thing he already knows karate!

SoapNet: If the channel is planning 3 new scripted series, what will happen to the daily repeats of our are favorite shows?!  On the brightside, we would have about 6 extra hours in our day…

Beyonce: Also know now, apparently, as Sasha Fierce,  has her whole album up on MySpace, a week before you can get it in stores.

Kanye: His elite coolness factor just went down a few notches.  He’s debuting his new single on tonight’s 90210.  Barf.

Obama: If you’re offering to organize a special event for the president’s kids, you should probably tell him.  Disney says Malia and Sasha have a standing invitation to appear on every tween’s favorite show, Hannah Montana, but the soon-to-be first family say they have no knowledge of this.  Someone’s getting fired!
