Are you all aboard?

Are you all aboard?

Madonna: Had a little horse riding accident this weekend thanks to none other than the fabulous paparazzi.  Guess no lesson’s been learned from Princess Diana’s tragic death.

Ellen Pompeo: Grey’s Anatomy fans rejoice!  Maybe.  Pompeo is preggers with her first child.  Who knows–maybe Meredith and Derek will have a little one, too!

Rosie O’Donnell: Just the latest person to hop on the Susan Boyle trainSays Ro of Boyle’s Britain’s Got Talent performance: “It was a perfect moment.”

SAG: Could it be?  An actors’ strike averted?  That’s the word coming from Screen Actors Guild and union sources.  But the contract still needs to be approved.

Jossip: And another potential place of employment bites the dust.  Though the site iself is claiming this is just a “pause.”  Sigh.

Jezebel: Made a list–videos included–of the “cheesiest” TV openers.  Not gonna lie: we kind of love it.

Bill Clinton: Had the privilege of seeing the former president up-close-and-personal for the very first time and, sadly, he is definitely getting older!

SIZZLED OUT: My Sister’s Keeper

STILL SIZZLING: This romantic comedy hunk says he’s in no rush to marry, even though he already has a mini-me with his model girlfriend.

A screencap from JT and Ciara's scandalous new video

A screencap from JT and Ciara's scandalous new video

American Idol: It’s hard out there for an Idol, especially if you’re David Cook.  The reigning champ took to his MySpace blog to call out aggressive fans.  Warns Cook: “preventative measures” may be taken if their behavior doesn’t stop.

DWTS: We always wondered what the celeb contestants got for their participation.  We hoped and assumed it was a donation to their favorite charity but apparently that’s not the case.  Instead they get paid upwards of $200,000!

Justin Timberlake: Wonder how Jessica Biel feels about JT’s sexy appearance in Ciara’s new music video.  You can say it’s acting and just business, but we know we wouldn’t be okay with this!

David Letterman: The Late Show host is just the latest entertainer to get married recently.  Dave announced last night that he wed his longtime girlfriend and babymama. Glad to hear there’ll be one more happy families around!

Lance Armstrong: In the midst of a cycling comeback, Armstrong has broken his collarbone.  Let’s wish the cyclist and father-to-be (again) a speedy recovery.

Facebook: Still getting slammed for the recent redesign but has said nothing to appease users.  This can’t end well, can it?

Jossip: Redesigned again!  At least they’ve re-posted a slew of Ashton Kutcher’s TwitPics.

SIZZLED OUT: Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart

STILL SIZZLING: This actress-comedian is working to recapture the magic of the 90s as she develops another sitcom.

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.

This photo is being used everywhere!

Jessica Simpson: The cover story on 3 entertainment mags/tabloids this week.  Even PEOPLE went with it.  Lame.

PEOPLE: Speaking of PEOPLE, they have very bizarre poll up asking which male actor looks the best in drag.  Is this really necessary?

American Idol: The addition of a new judge hasn’t added much to the show, but what if you cut one of the judges? MSNBC says Randy Jackson should go!

Facebook: The headline to this article says it all: Facebook Turns 5–But Can It Survive? We say yes.  It ain’t going anywhere any time soon.  And that’s not a bad thing.  Gawker shares its own opinion here.

Clay Aiken: Will be a guest judge on the new season of America’s Next Top Model, which begins later this month.  Doesn’t get much more random than that.

Emmys: The television categories will have 6 nominees from now on instead of 5, and will give all members of the Academy equal voting, in an effort to “increase inclusivity.” No matter what, someone’s still gonna be pissed, though, because you can’t recognize or include everything.

Digital TV: They’re all a bunch of flip-floppers!  After previously voting against it, Congress now ruled that the mandatory switch to digital TV won’t happen until June.

Stephen King: He better watch out.  Many a vampire might be after him now that he said Twilight author Stephanie Meyer “can’t write worth a darn” ‘Dem’s fightin’ words!

Iron Man 2: Robert Downey, Jr. promises that the sequel to last summer’s blockbuster will be “three times more fun and strange.”  Since when do fun and strange go together?

JuicyCampus: The internet just got a little less swarmier now that this gossip site, popular among college students, announced it’s closing.  About time!

Jossip: For sale, but you can hardly tell.  There’s only a little banner at the top of the site, asking for “serious inquiries.”  Damn that economy!

SIZZLED OUT: Gwyneth Paltrow (Chris Martin)

STILL SIZZLING: This off-and-on couple is apparently back on ever since he went through a “life-changing experience.”  Will another reality show follow??

Not everyone's favorite piano man

24: The new season is just getting started and you better cherish every second of it.  Star Kiefer Sutherland says he could see next year being the last but that it’s ultimately up to the audience.  Funny, we thought it was up to the network!  Since when do audiences ever get their say?

Oprah: Though she was “amused” by Blagojevic saying he considered her to replace Obama in the Illinois senate, O also says she thinks she would’ve done a good job!

DWTS: Not sure if this is good news or bad but Kevin Federline will not be appearing on the next season.

Supernatural: The show suffered a devastating loss on Sunday when one of its executive producers passed away from cancer.  Not sure yet if/how this will affect the show’s future but that probably isn’t the most important thing right now.

Terrell Owens: Getting his own VH1 reality show. Just what we need.  Not that there ever is a reality show we need…

Digital TV: If you haven’t made the switch yet, you could have four more months to do so if the House and Senate can agree.  The Senate, at President Obama’s urging, already passed the bill.

The Real World: Leaving the country next season to travel oh so far away to Cancun.  We’re still waiting for The Real World: Long Island or, at the very least, The Hamptons.

Variety: The latest to be hit with layoffs.  Our job prospects are decreasing by the day…

Defamer: Making the bold prediction that The Curious Case of Benjamin Button will go 0-for-13 at the Oscars next month.

Slate: Making the even bolder claim that Billy Joel is “the worst pop singer ever.”  That is extremely harsh, even for them.  Jossip fired back with a list of their own.

SIZZLED OUT: Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls)

STILL SIZZLING: This once popular series will be unexpectedly going on a long hiatus soon.  Hope this doesn’t mean things are gonna get ugly!

Sounds yummy to us!

Sounds yummy to us!

24: Really don’t understand what the Obama administration has to do with 24 but maybe we don’t watch enough to know?

Obama: Inspired the new Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor, Yes Pecan.  Get it?!

The Simpsons: In the process of making an episode written by and starring Seth Rogen.  We may actually have to tune in for this one!

Nickelodeon: Their answer to High School Musical–called Spectacular–will air in February.  Noteworthy fact: the film’s choreographer has also worked with Madonna and Britney!

Rumer Willis: The eldest daughter of Bruce and Demi will be Miss Golden Globe at the awards show tomorrow night.  As the Daily Beast asks, how will this affect her career?  “Will it Die Hard?  Like a Ghost?”

Charles Barkley: Was in fact over the legal limit when he was arrested for DUI last month.  Consequently, he’s “taking” a leave of absence from his sportscasting gig.

The Real World: Salon makes a great point: how come it took this long for the show to include a transgendered person in the cast?  Oh, yeah.  Because it’s no longer cutting edge!

Jossip: Has an interesting article examining the possible futures of CBS.  In their words, “own the world or crash and burn.”

SIZZLED OUT: Burger King

STILL SIZZLING: Chace Crawford and his pretty face star in this rising singer’s new video.

FOB is peeved and they want you to know about it!

Heroes: Someone in the cast desperately wants out.  But Kristin won’t say who!

Fall Out Boy: Making a huge accusation that Blender sensationalized and falsified parts of their February cover story–and using Twitter to air their grievances!

Travis Barker: Accompanied by ex Shanna Moakler as he and DJ AM reunited to play a set in Las Vegas.  On again?  Or just hanging with his babymama?

ABC: Contemplating adding widgets to your television experience.  No idea how they’d do that but that’s not surprising considering we still have trouble with widgets ourselves!

TV Guide: No longer includes The CW in their magazine listings.  WTF?

Iron Man 2: Possible villiain casting: Mickey Rourke, who is in the midst of a comeback thanks to the film The Wrestler.

Jossip: No one could deny how awkward it was watching Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper co-host a New Year’s eve special.  Jossip has followed their example by coming up with some pairings of their own.  Our favorite: Joy Behar and Ann Coulter!

Journalism: People, people!  More than one news organization cannot have an exclusive on the same exact thing–as some sites claimed yesterday about Tori Spelling’s 90210 deal.  Go back to j-school!

Gawker: Has a great picture-based piece on the ridiculousness of Teen Vogue telling kids to buy $200+ bags during a recession.

Israel: We resent the suggestion that the timing of the war in Gaza was a PR move.  Considering we were there when it began last month, we can tell you that’s not true.
