Swinging the bat at a teammate

Swinging the bat at a teammate

Election: What better way to get kids involved than to write a song to the tune of T.I.’s Whatever You Like? Brilliant.

DWTS: Finally!  Adios, Cloris!

Rebecca Budig: Why make a much-hyped return to All My Children only to leave again one year later?  The actress attributes her departure to her busy life with husband (and former Bachelor hunk) Bob Guiney.  We hope ABC feels stupid now for all its “the real Greenlee returns” promotion.  So now we’ll be back with a “fake one”?

Derek Jeter: Gave a subtle diss to teammate and former BFF A-Rod when he told a reporter “Don’t start with me about Kabbalah. I went to Catholic school.” Is a locker room brawl in the future?

Rosie O’Donnell: Reacted to the Jennifer Hudson tragedy by putting some startling statistics up on her blog.  Turns out, it’s ridiculously common to be murdered by an “intimate partner.”  Such a tragic, scary world we live in.

Russell Brand: Never one to stay out of trouble, the British (actor? host? comic? WHAT IS HE?!) resigned from the BBC after harassing another actor through voicemail.  This is not the first time Brand’s left his place of employment in a huff.  Right after 9/11, he showed up for work at MTV dressed as Osama Bin Laden.  Classy.

Still practicing brotherly love

Still practicing brotherly love

Anne Hathaway: The ex-boyfriend/con was just sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison.  If he hadn’t plead guilty, he would’ve gone to trial facing a 265-year sentence.  Perhaps Hathaway would be better off with the latter.

HSM: A great article on why it’s okay to be an adult and admit you are HSM-obsessed. Not that we were ever ashamed in the first place…

Miley Cyrus: Refuses to explicitly say whether she and 20-year-old model Justin Gaston are dating. “Maybe. Maybe not,” she told Ryan Seacrest. Regardless, it’s obvious she loves the attention.

Lindsay Lohan: If you’ve been looking forward to seeing more LiLo on Ugly Betty, you better enjoy it while it lasts. She was supposed to be in six episodes but it was cut down to four because of her diva-like behavior. This certainly won’t help her reputation.

Celeb Endorsements: While it’s still unclear if a celeb can sway who you vote for, there is evidence that they can be credited with helping youth vote at all. We guess that’s good.

Hanson: Why did the brothers walk barefoot through Times Square earlier this week? To raise awareness of African poverty. All together now: awwwwwww.

Roger Ebert: The famed movie critic admits he “failed” when he published a review based on only a film’s first 8 minutes. Though he nows realizes the error of his ways, is it too late? Some think so. Still, we’re inclined to cut the old guy some slack.

Bet Disney wishes she looked like this all the time.

Channel Drift: Remember how MTV first started out playing music videos and has since morphed into a totally different channel? Well, it’s a lot more common than we might’ve originally thought. Fourteen other cable channels have also undergone identity changes. Maybe we should cut MTV some slack.

90210: Will have a shortened episode on Nov. 4 so viewers won’t have to choose between that and election coverage. ‘Cause, you know, the audiences for those two things are exactly the same.

James Marsden: Who does The Notebook, Enchanted and, let’s not forget, 27 Dresses actor want to impress? Judd Apatow! He thinks playing a bigot in the new film Sex Drive will help his cause. Good luck with that, James.

Obama: Might he make Oprah an ambassador? After all, she is the Queen of All Media.

Partisan TV: A new report says Republicans favor Rock of Love and Dems go for I Love New York. That’s high class right there.

Bi-Partisan Comedy: Less likely today as left-leaning comedians have the market cornered. Are Democrats just better at everything?

Miley Cyrus: Those scandalous bathroom photos from the spring?  Courtesy of a hacker now under investigation by the FBI.  But wasn’t she just being Miley?

MTV: Not going ahead with planned series Model Makers, which chronicled the making of wannabe models into the correct (read: skinny) body types.  Shocking considering the other stuff they’ve shown.  Who remembers I Want A Famous Face?  Maybe we shouldn’t cut MTV some slack…

SIZZLED OUT: Samuel L. Jackson

STILL SIZZLING: Which R & B singer says she’s motivated not by athletes’ chiseled looks but instead their smooth skills?

She's 40!

She's 40!

Beverly Hills Chihuahua: This movie topped the box office two weeks in a row!  We have to wonder what this says about America’s taste in movies…

DWTS: Forget all the hoopla surrounding Cheryl Burke’s fit/not fit body.  We still can’t believe Carrie Ann Inaba is 40!  How long ’til she becomes a MILF?

Johnny Depp: Speaking of still being hot for your age, Johnny Depp was just voted sexiest man by Cosmopolitan UK.  Our favorite Johnny look: Crybaby!

Miley Cyrus: The barely 16-year-old claims she’s fallen in love more than 20 times.   So how long until she’s pulling a Britney?

Zac Efron: Not taking over Daniel Radcliffe’s full-frontal role on Broadway.  One word: damn.

Barack Obama: Ballots mailed to Albany residents presented ‘Barack Osama’ as one of the candidates.  Correct versions were later sent out but is the damage already done?
