Soon this all will be just a bad dream!

Soon this all will be just a bad dream!

Paris Hilton: At first “sources” were saying that she and Benji Madden are no longer together but we weren’t sure whether to believe it.  They made huge declarations of their love as recently as last month.  Turns out, the Associated Press got official confirmation from Hilton’s publicist.  You win some, you lose some…

Miley Cyrus: Wants to be on a reality television show beacause they’re “crazy” and it would be cool “to be in a really nice house with cameras following me around.”  Lucky for her, MTV is casting for season 22 of The Real World.  Be careful what you wish for, Miley!

Rob Lowe: Chinese delegates, in California to discuss global warming with the governator, got the pleasure of witnessing Lowe film a scene for Brothers & Sisters.  Lowe even got them directors’ chairs and headsets.  What an inefficient use of time!

Gawker: Categorizes the 4 different ways magazines have been killed lately.  Funny and sad at the same time.

OK! Magazine: They’re practically the only mag out there hiring.  Too bad we don’t want to work for them!  (Yes, we know one day we will regret saying that!)

Jossip: The aforementioned regret has already begun.  Internships at some pretty desirable mags are now for sale, as in YOU PAY TO DO THEM.  This truly is a “New America.” One in which we stay in bed under the covers all day.

Soap Opera Digest: You know times are bad when a publication starts asking for “volunteer writers.”   At least they’re not auctioning the spots off to the highest bidder!

24: The two-hour telepic, airing Sunday, is a “dry-run” for a full-length feature in theaters.  Ratings and DVD sales will be the deciding factors.

Blink-182: Mark Hoppus admits to talking a lot lately with former bandmates Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge.  The best news: a music reunion, though not yet discussed, isn’t totally out of the question!

Beauty & the Geek: May have a second life on MTV, with D-list celebs participating as the beauties.  Hard to believe Ashton Kutcher is involved with this crap.

AR2: What if there was a second American Revolution?  That question is the subject of a new series in the works at FX.  The “incendiary” plot will revolve around college students who stage a revolt and try to re-define the meaning of patriotism.

Judd Apatow: His next movie won’t be out til next summer at the earliest and it’s already getting press play.  We’re not surprised considering, a, his track record and, b, the stars lined up (Adam Sandler, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jason Schwartzman and wife Leslie Mann).

SIZZLED OUT: Josh Schwartz

STILL SIZZLING: This actress spent an hour in the hospital after getting sick on a plane.  Realizing the best days of our career were behind us would make us sick, too.

Both have moved on...to co-stars.

Both have moved on...to co-stars.

Jennifer Hudson: The boy found earlier today was positively identified as Hudson’s nephew.  The growing enormity of this tragedy has left us speechless. 

Julianne Hough: So it turns out it wasn’t just a stomache after all.  The 20-year-old will have her appendix removed as part of treatment for endometrosis, a disease affecting the uterus and surrounding organs.  Our only previous experience with endometrosis?  When Kelly was diagnosed with it on (the original) 90210.

Obama: Another assassination attempt against the presidential candidate has been pre-emptively foiled.  Are we the only ones who think they will increase ten-fold if he’s actually elected?

DWTS: Is Cloris a success because of her age or her personality?  And can both be considered ‘sexy’ qualities?  Just thinking about this gives us the heebie-jeebies but the Chicago Tribune doesn’t seem to mind.

Apatow and Co.: The relationship between Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith is quite incesutous.  Turns out, that’s also what makes it so great.  We should start a fan club.

Chad Michael Murray: Revealed a lot of juicy, previously unconfirmed news in an interview this morning.  He and the much-younger Kenzie (a former OTH extra) are still engaged and will likely marry in North Carolina.  He has no problem working with ex-wife Sophia Bush–especially since she’s with fellow co-star James Lafferty!  And the only thing stopping a seventh season of One Tree Hill is the network’s sign-on. Very, very interesting.

Economy: The reason networks are still airing low-rated shows like Knight Rider and Terminator: The  Sarah Connor Chronicles.  Great, so we’ll be broke AND un-entertained.

Trista and Ryan: As they await the arrival of baby number two, the couple is considering a return to reality television.  We have little respect for parents that want to subject their kids to that environemtn.

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?

The movie that brought us Russell Brand.  We're still not sure if that's a good thing.

NBC: So it turns out millions and millions of people tuning into your station doesn’t guarantee moolah.  The network actually lost money on their Olympics coverage.  Can’t say we feel bad.

Jennie Garth: The perennial fave 90210 actress admits to questioning the super-skinny bodies of her new younger co-stars.  She says if she were in charge, those girls might get a talking to.  Um, Jennie, didn’t anyone ever tell you not to speak out against your boss?  See Shannen Doherty, circa 1994.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall: We’ll be using this 3-disc special edition to tide us over until the next Judd Apatow pic hits the screens.

Rock of Love Charm School with Sharon Osbourne: Premieres tonight, but how many people actually find Sharon Osbourne charming?

SIZZLED OUT: Foo Fighters

STILL SIZZLING: Which celebrity did Forbes name as the most-bankable magazine cover?
