Picture this face in the Senate!

Picture this face in the Senate!

Anne Hathaway: Would you pay $12,000 for a date with her? Some guy actually did. We don’t think any celebrity is worth that much!

Beatles: How about $200,000 to own their very first contract? Yeah, we wouldn’t spend that either.

Paula Abdul: Hasn’t slept at home since a fan committed suicide outside her house. Reasonable or ridiculous? We can’t decide.

Will Smith: Other celebs are banking on his 11-year marriage to stand the test of (Hollywood) time and, frankly, so are we. We can’t handle any more splits!

Jay Leno: Just because Conan is taking over The Tonight Show, Leno doesn’t have to go. He’ll just be on earlier.

Fran Drescher: Could the nanny also be a senator? That’s what she’s hoping for but we find it hard to believe it’ll happen. Caroline Kennedy does make a lot more sense.

Time: Compiled “The Top 10 Everything of 2008.” Definitely the best place for procrastination.

Online Media: Now eligible for the Pulitzer. Curious to see what, if anything, will be deemed worthy enough to win.

Gawker: Not that we didn’t know already that the media industry is floundering, but Gawker put together this handy-dandy chart of newspaper survival odds that just make things seem that much bleaker.

Network TV: New shows lead to cancellations which lead to more new shows. It’s a vicious cycle and it will gear up once again very soon.

Playboy: Christie Hefner (daughter of Hugh) has resigned her position as CEO of the company. Maybe she’s seen one too many naked ladies?

Holocaust: The subject of six films now out or soon to be. We believe this is a good thing, and wish others did, too.

Perez Hilton: Here’s your first look at his upcoming book. We have to warn you, though: it ain’t pretty!

The CW: We’re liking this new trailer, courtesy of Spoiler TV, for the winter season!

Polaroids: Disappearing before our very eyes!  Ah, technological evolution…

Wheel of Fortune: We’re going to be on the show! We tape in Los Angeles mid-January, though we don’t know when it’ll air. We’re sooo excited!

SIZZLED OUT: Which singer swears she’s completely sober now that she has a new album to promote? Answer: Lily Allen (Submitted by Ashley)

STILL SIZZLING: The quote of the day award goes to this comedian for for a hilarious one-liner: “This is the first time a First Lady can drop it like it’s hot!”

Tiffani "I've dropped the Amber" Thiessen"

Oprah: Reports are saying she won’t stick with her talk show after 2011 but no worries, she won’t be going far.  Just switching focus over to OWN–the Oprah Winfrey Network.  World domination is next.

Palin: Before Oprah does her OWN thing (get it?!), she’ll make good on that promise to have Sarah Palin on  her show.  Will Palin take her up on the offer?  We vote for hibernation instead.

Kanye: Musical influences?  The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash and Broadway.  Or so he says.

SNL: Will Joe Biden be the next politician to poke fun at himself? That’s what the execs are hoping for but we’re not too excited.  Something about old white guys (see: John McCain) just isn’t funny.

The CW: The promised series about Robin (Batman’s sidekick, duh!) won’t be developed after higher ups at Warner Brothers–and Dark Knight visionary Christopher Nolan?–decided now isn’t the ideal time.  Guess the tube has all the superheroes it can handle.

Beyonce: Thinks there is in fact room for one more superhero: Wonder Woman.  “It’d be a dream come true to be that character,” she says.  “It sure would be handy to have that lasso.”  Awkward.

Fox: The mid-season schedule will shake things up all around.  Most disappointing: Prison Break will simply “return at a later date.”  What kind of B.S. spin is that?

Betty Boop: It doesn’t get much more random than this: the animated icon is getting her own Broadway show.  No word yet on whether this will be geared towards kiddies or perverts.

Tiffani Thiessen: Coming back to TV–but not on 90210 (which is probably a good thing!)  Instead she’s playing somebody’s wife on a new USA show.  We’ll take whatever TAT we can get.

Christina Aguilera: A day after a certain boy band talked rivals, the girls are doing it, too.  X-Tina says she and Brit Brit were never competing against each other.  After all, they used to hold hands!

SIZZLED OUT: Hugh Hefner

STILL SIZZLING: Which late-night comic had a guest stand him up this week for the first time in 15 years?

Rockin' out and looking pretty while doing it!

Rockin' out and looking pretty while doing it!

David Cook: Our favorite Idol EVER will be performing on SNL tomorrow night.  Meeting him last spring will forever rank as one of our all-time best days.

John McCain: Stealing Cook’s thunder and also appearing on SNL.  Psht.

Shanna Moakler: Travis Barker’s ex has given her first interview since finding out about his plane crash.  Last time she spoke, though, Travis said not to believe her.  So what will it be this time?  Fact or fiction?

Melrose Place: Despite persistent rumors, if the remake happens, it probably won’t be aided by current mega-creators Mark Schwahn (One Tree Hill) and Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Gossip Girl).  And thank god.  We want a seventh season of OTH, not a rehashing of a show that wasn’t very good to begin with.

Spider-Man 4: The flick, set to be released in 2011, has found itself a writer.  A Pulitizer award-winning, Julliard-trained one at that.  But we have to wonder: why are movies from the same series being written by different people?  What ever happened to consistency?

Newsday: Our hometown newspaper appears to be the latest victim of the revived Anthrax hoax.  Really, people, this is SO not funny.

Hugh Hefner: In a new biography–aptly titled Mr. Playboy–the media mogul’s life is given the up-close-and-personal treatment.  Silly us, we thought that’s been done before.  Many, many times before.
