Suri and Shiloh: NOT ACTUALLY TOGETHER!

Suri and Shiloh: NOT ACTUALLY TOGETHER!

Rihanna: If you record a song with your alleged abuser is it guaranteed to fail?  Or will curiosity lead to mega success? Time will tell…

AniMayer: No more?  No more?!  Really?  That’s what everyone is reporting.  Is the split for good this time?

American Idol: Is the new veto rule giving the judges too much power?  Newsday sure is arguing against it.  Given past shocking and potentially unfair ousters, we’re on board.

CBS: Planning a fall pilot about a man who resurfaces after allegedly disappearing on 9/11.  Not sure the country is ready for something like this…

OK! Magazine: We like to think our readers are smarter than this but just to be sure: do not believe the cover photo seen above!  Totally photoshopped!

Demi Moore: Might be taking the whole new media trend a little too far. Who’s gonna tell her she and Ashton are acting more like mother and son??

Mark Zuckerberg: The Facebook founder is making his Oprah debut today!  We predict a huge drop in ratings.  What moms will want to see hear what he has to say?

Jossip: Makes the argument that pop culture is returning to the 90s.  We can’t complain.  It was a good decade!

SIZZLED OUT: Travis Barker and DJ AM

STILL SIZZLING: This 1980s version of Mean Girls could get the Broadway treatment.

In love.  At least for today.

In love. At least for today.

AniMayer: Still wondering where this supposedly serious relationship came from?  PEOPLE has a great recap of their path to “love.”  Our question: how long til it’s over?

DWTS: Supposedly Lil’ Kim will “surprise a lot of people.” We’re pretty nervous that’ll all be from her wardrobe choices.  Also, Jewel will still compete despite a small injury this week.  Fun fact: Her hubby–and fellow competitor–thinks getting her pregnant will help him win!

The Simpsons: Will become the longest-running scripted show, with 22 seasons, in history now that Fox gave it a two-season extension.  To put it in context, though, this will mean only 400-something shows.  Beverly Hills, 90210 had 10 seasons and 300 shows!

Jamie Foxx: Taking name-dropping to a new level by…face-dropping.  The actor-turned-music star features a slew of celebrities in his new video, including Jake Gyllenhaal, Ron Howard, Samuel L. Jackson and more.  Random group, no?

Tom Brady: There’s little details out there but apparently he and Gisele Bundchen got married yesterday.  Wonder how his babymama, actress Bridget Moynahan, feels about this.

Newsday: The idea of paying for on-line news has been bandied about by a number of people and Newsday (our hometown paper!) announced that they’ll be doing just that.  Understand that newspapers need more revenue these days to function but not sure charging readers is the way to go.  Might even drive people away.

Wheel of Fortune: Don’t forget to watch Sizzlemaker tonight!  Check your local listings for time and channel.

SIZZLED OUT: Clue

STILL SIZZLING: This famous funny man is coming back to television…sort of.  He’ll be producing a reality show that, apparently, isn’t about nothing.

No more swimming for you!  Or free cereal!

No more swimming for you! Or free cereal!

Michael Phelps: After photos surfaced of him smoking pot, Phelps has been banned from the US Swimming for 3 months and lost his Kellogs endorsement deal.  We always find it really frustrating when people are punished in their jobs for their private behavior!

Beyonce: First there was beef with Aretha Franklin.  And now…Etta James.  The singer that Beyonce portrayed in Cadillac Records–and whose song she sang to Obama at his inaugeration ball–says she “can’t stand” Beyonce and is going to “get her ass whipped.”  Ladies, no need to get physical!

Katy Perry: The quote we talked about earlier this week was errononeously reported by PEOPLE and Perry is pissssssed!  Rightfully so.  Is our favorite celeb publication slipping?

Jennifer Aniston: Let’s hope this quote is right–“”The man’s got balls. What can I say? I think he’s funny,” Aniston on boyfriend John Mayer.

Miley Cyrus: After being criticized for taking so-called racially-insensitive pictures, the singer says she didn’t mean to insult anyone and is convinced people are targeting her “now that Britney is back on top of her game.”  Yep, Miley, that’s exactly why…

BSB: Nick Carter is opening up about his struggle with alcohol and drugs.  That’s 2 out of 5, people…

Superbowl: Just like with Nipplegate, the FCC will investigate this year’s Superbowl porn snafu.

NCIS: Two stars are attached to the new spin-off: Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J.  Can’t see the latter in this type of show, though.

Blink-182: It’s not quite the reunion we had in mind but the 3 former band members will appear together at the Grammys.  It’s the first time they’ll share a stage in more than 4 years.

Grammys: Speaking of, we’ll be live-blogging the event, so be sure to come back this Sunday at 8PM ET!

SIZZLED OUT: Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler

STILL SIZZLING: This former talk show host will be taking over for Sharon Osbourne on the next edition of VH1’s Charm School.

We know we're not one to talk, but obsessions are NOT HEALTHY, people!

We know we're not one to talk but obsessions are NOT HEALTHY, people!

John Mayer: Jennifer Aniston sent some praise his way, and now he’s doing the same for her.  He told PEOPLE: “It’s really nice to have somebody in life have your back.  That girl knows me … so whether I go to bed alone or not, to have somebody who knows you in this world, that’s a really nice thing.”  Sweet or gag-inducing?

Paula Abdul: More disturbing information is being released about the shocking death outside the Idol’s home.  All it really shows: too little action taken too late.

Joe Jonas: After several weeks of bad press thanks to ex Taylor Swift, the middle Jo Bro used his MySpace to set the record straight.  This is getting a little too Degrassi for our liking.

Hollywood: Cutting back on the holiday party extravagance and we don’t feel bad one bit.

The View: For the very first time the show is number 1 in the daytime ratings but now that the election’s over we doubt’ll last.

Changeling: We still haven’t seen this movie, and though this article kind of spoils it, we’re even more fascinated now that the real-life mystery has been solved.

Hilary Duff: The former Lizzie McGuire signed a deal with NBC to develop and star in a new TV show.  No news yet if it’ll be part-cartoon.

Obama: The first sit-down is coming and it’s with 60 Minutes.  Expect it to air as soon as this Sunday.

Lip-Syncing: Don’t try it in China.  Soon it’ll be against the law!

Wall-E: When the hit comes out on DVD next week, there’ll be a short film starring Burn-E.  Yeah, we don’t remember him either.

Michael Moore: The filmmaker was originally planning a sequel to his Fahrenheit 9/11 but instead will focus on the economy.  New times, new problems, more movies.

Justin Timberlake: Called New York City the “realest in the world.”  Is realest even a word?!  And what makes NYC any more real than the thousands of others?

Going all politico on us. If only we actually asked for it.

Going all politico on us. If only we actually asked for it.

Jennifer Hudson: Established a foundation in memory of her slain relatives to help other families who’ve lost loved ones to violent crimes.  Her speedy actions only help underscore the lessons from the past week: There is no time to waste.  Life is short.  Seize the day.

The View: Put a presidential spin on Halloween costumes this year.  And, yes, this means they all cross-dressed.

Kid Rock: Finally, a celeb who doesn’t want to shove his politics down your throat!  Who is the rapper/rocker/country singer voting for?  He’s not saying because IT DOESN’T MATTER.  Amen.

Joe the Plumber: Sort of following in Kid Rock’s footsteps.  Trying to make his 15 minutes of fame last a little longer with…a country music career?  Yeah, good luck with that.

John Mayer: Definitely not following in Kid Rock’s footsteps.  Makes a surprisingly well-written case for Obama.  Still, we guarantee you this actually cost the presidential candidate some votes.

Forbes: Compiled a part-creepy, part-sad, part-surprising list of the top-earning deceased stars.  Heath Ledger ranks third.  We wish that was a good thing.

Hip-Hop Stars: Should they reduce the bling exposure while the economy is in the crapper?  The Huffington Post thinks so.

MLB: Is there a problem with the World Series?  Besides, we mean, not actually being open to the entire world.  Yes, if you consider the poor timing of the games, the team monopolies and the fixation on revenue.

Iron Man: Robert Downey Jr. hasn’t even begun filming the sequel yet and he’s already signed on for film number 3.

SIZZLED OUT: Joaquin Phoenix

STILL SIZZLING: Which veejay turned dramatic actress will return for TRL’s farewell next month?

We know you look best when your brooding but we can't take much more!

Hot and smart? What a combination!

AniMayer: Star and The National Enquirer are reporting that these two are back on.  We’ll wait for more reliable sources before we comment.

Prison Break: Now we’ve watched the show since it began four years but if it gets any more complex, our heads are going to explode!

Gossip Girl: If you didn’t see last night’s ep, you missed some girl-on-girl fighting and Penn Badgley in nothing but his boxers.  But it’s not too late to start watching: the CW has ordered two additional episodes for this season, making 24 in all.

Teen TV: Think the lead characters always go on to big careers?  Think again.

Sophia Bush: In a new interview with CosmoGirl! (RIP), she says she only wants simple hang outs with friends “rather than dance on tables and have nine cocktails.”  Hm, wonder who she’s referring to…

Living Lohan: Ali revealed to Seventeen there might be a second season.  Brace yourselves.

Shannen Doherty: Worked out a deal to return to 90210 for two more episodes.  Not sure how we feel about this considering we were never Brenda fans in the first place.

SIZZLED OUT: John Lennon

STILL SIZZLING: Which former child star says in her new memoir that she dated Michael Jackson, Steve Martin AND her on-screen sibling?  That is one random bunch!
