Choose a language, read the book and see the movie.  That's a direct order!

Choose a language, read the book and see the movie. That's an order!

Mark Ruffalo: The actor’s brother is criticially injured after being shot in the head!  And that’s pretty much all we know right now.  Sad.

Pete Wentz: Called newborn son Bronx “a happy accident.” This cannot end well.

Gossip Girl: Apparently one of the characters is preggers.  So is actress Kelly Rutherford (Lily).  Coincidence?

Kelly Ripa: What’s that we always say about tabloids?  Oh, yeah–don’t believe them!  The latest proof: Ripa’s rep is saying a National Enquirer cover story that she and hubby/hottie Mark Consuelos are getting a divorce “100 percent false.”  We imagined so!

Jessica Simpson: Reveals things to Marie Claire that we never knew (and probably didn’t care to) like her love of self-help books, her desire to take a class on religion and her collection of “lucky pennies.”  Maybe celebrities are just like the rest of us!  (Ha!)

Funny Or Die: What happens when celebrities make a “Prop 8 Musical”?  Hilarity and cleverness ensue, of course!  Among those featured: Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Chalke, John C. Reilly and much more!

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas: Holocaust movies are usually stellar and this one was no expection.  We saw it last night.  Incredibly moving. The odds for an Oscar nomination are slim but it’s completely deserving.

Harry Potter: Think the books are finished?  Think again.  J.K. Rowling is releasing a spin-off, called The Tales of Beetle the Bard.  Necessary?  Probably not.  At least the profits–which, we’re sure, will be enormous–are going to charity.

Kanye West: With lyrics about his ex-fiance like “You spoiled LA girl” and “Tell everybody that you know that I don’t love you no more,” is his new album a little too personal?  All we know is we wouldn’t want to be Alexis Phifer right now!

Kid Rock: Thinks a music tour for the armed forces should count as community service.  No way, says the courts.  We’re torn:  it is a nice thing to do but something he’d likely do regardless of whether he had the CS punishment, right?

Kristen Stewart: Surely riding the wave of Twilight’s success, she’s just been cast as Joan Jett in a new biopic.  We don’t see ANY resemblance but stranger casting choices have been made.

Facebook: Lindsay Lohan has got a bone to pick with you (but not with MySpace, she’ll have you know)!  Apparently they shut down LiLo’s account, thinking it was a fake, and now she is PEEVED!

Who needs a fact-checker?

Who needs a fact-checker?

Rosie O’Donnell: We are sooooo excited for Rosie Live tonight!

Kanye West: An investigation is again taking place in the 2007 death of his mother, Shonda.  Californian authorities are focusing their efforts on Kanye’s cousin who was supposed to be taking care of Shonda after her cosmetic surgery.

Mariah Carey: Hmmm.  The singer didn’t exactly diffuse rumors of a pregnancy on Ellen today.  When offered champagne by the clever host, Carey first accepted but then didn’t actually drink it, giving the lame reason that it was too early to drink.  Riiiight.  Like it’s ever too early for any star to drink.

Academy Awards: The key to winning an Oscar could be as simple as having a unique haircut.  We’re off to the salon.

TMZ: The television version will be on air for at least the next two years.  Thanks, TV gods.  (That was sarcasm.)

Ashlee Simpson: Notice how her name is spelt.  Now notice how it is on the cover of OK! Now laugh.

Ann Moore: The Time Inc. CEO and mastermind behind their massive layoffs will be honored with a lifetime achievement award.  Seems fair, doesn’t it?

Standing up for her rights

Standing up for her rights

Wanda Sykes: The actress-comedian admitted, for the first time in public, that she’s a lesbian at an anti-Prop 8 rally.  Good for her!

TRL: Don’t forget to watch the last episode EVER tonight at 8 (eastern time) on MTV!  In the meantime, check out this interview with original host Carson Daly.  Find out which boy band was his favorite!

Obama: Two steps forward, one step back.  May be the first president to have a laptop in the Oval Office.  But he’ll probably have to give up his BlackBerry and all e-mail communications.

Reality TV: Following the death of a former Idol contestant, TV Guide takes a look at the damaging–and sometimes life-threatening–affects of reality television.

David Cook: This is very sad.  He’s still with Kimberly Caldwell! We’re overwhelmed with jealousy.

Holiday Films: A look at how all Christmas movies revolve around family dysfunction.

Green Hollywood: It exists.  Surprisingly.  Celebs came out last week to celebrate all the eco-friendly ways they go about their business.

SIZZLED OUT: Kanye West

STILL SIZZLING: This celeb angered animal rights activists this weekend when she wore what appeared to be fur.  The consequence?  A “flour bomb.”  Says the star’s girlfriend–who had her own animal controversey just a few weeks ago–“I think there are plenty of families that could have used that flour for a meal. Nice job, lady.”

Crazy?

Crazy? Quite possibly.

Sarah Palin: Wishes she did more interviews during the campaign.  Yeah, ’cause that would’ve changed the results!

NYT: Does the paper that has all the news that’s fit to print practice censorship?  One writer thinks so.  The word in question?  Bitchassness.

NYT Pt 2.: And what happens when the paper that has all the news that’s fit to print is spoofed?  Unsuspecting New Yorkers are scammed, as happened yesterday when a fake–albeit very convincing–issue was handed out.

The Dark Knight: Holy Batman!  A city with the same name as the caped crusader is suing filmmaker Christopher Nolan for royalties.  Does Gotham have a new joker on its hands?

InDecision 2008: Seems not everyone was happy with Comedy Central’s election coverage.  Or so says the whiny chick who got screwed out of being in the audience.

Arrested Development: There’s been a lot of he-said, she-said regarding the possibility of a movie adaptation.  And now cast member Jeffrey Tambor has taken things further: he says the film is a go!

Kanye West: Somebody get this guy some help!  He told reporters that he’s an “alien,” that he blames himself for mother’s death and that “it’s lonely at the top.”  We’d say something clever if we weren’t so baffled.

CMA Awards: Kenny Chesney = Entertainer of the Year, Carrie Underwood = Best Female Vocalist, Shania Twain = first appearance post-split from her cheating husband.  Is it just us or do you think country music after-parties are probably a lot of fun?

B.J. Novak: The Office actor is going on sabbatical, leave or whatever it is they call it in the working world.  In actuality, he’s just making a movie and will presumably return to the show at a later, yet to be determined, date.

SIZZLED OUT: Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

STILL SIZZLING: This daytime show, nearing its 21st season, is asking viewers to compose its new theme song.  The winner will receive $100,000 in addition to other prizes.

It's not easy being pretty

It's not easy being pretty

Donald Trump: Who knew the billionaire had a heart?  He’s been housing Jennifer Hudson and her relatives in his super-elite building in Chicago.

Brad Pitt: Even grown men want to cop a feel off Bradley!  Pitt was “manhandled” by his own security guard at his own movie screening.  Can’t say we blame the guy.

Jennifer Aniston: And how’s this for understatement of the year: Jen says Angelina’s homewrecking ways were “uncool.”  We were expecting something a little more colorful.

Blake Lively: Has landed on the cover of yet another magazine.  Among the so-called revelations in the interview: she has 60 handbags (in two closets), actually gets along with Leighton Meester and can memorize a 4-page scene instantly.  Sadly, no dish on her and Penn.  Now that would be revelatory!

Forbes: They have a new top-10 list: most influential stars.  No one on it is really surprising: Clooney, Jolie, Hanks, blah, blah, blah.

Jesse Metcalfe: After disappearing from the public eye, this is surely an attention-grabbing way to make your comeback.  The former Desperate Housewives star fell 40 feet off a balcony at a party for the World Music Awards.  Thankfully, he wasn’t too injured but is still under a hospital’s care.

Jaden Smith: No longer content appearing alongside dad Will in bit parts, the 10-year-old will take a starring turn in a remake of The Karate Kid.  Good thing he already knows karate!

SoapNet: If the channel is planning 3 new scripted series, what will happen to the daily repeats of our are favorite shows?!  On the brightside, we would have about 6 extra hours in our day…

Beyonce: Also know now, apparently, as Sasha Fierce,  has her whole album up on MySpace, a week before you can get it in stores.

Kanye: His elite coolness factor just went down a few notches.  He’s debuting his new single on tonight’s 90210.  Barf.

Obama: If you’re offering to organize a special event for the president’s kids, you should probably tell him.  Disney says Malia and Sasha have a standing invitation to appear on every tween’s favorite show, Hannah Montana, but the soon-to-be first family say they have no knowledge of this.  Someone’s getting fired!

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?

A, um, glimpse into Zack and Miri's pornography adventure.

A, um, glimpse into Zack and Miri's pornography adventure.

CNN: A comedy show on CNN?  It’s coming, and will be hosted by D.L. Hughley.  Says the network: “When you watch as much news as our audience does, there comes a time you just want to stop and laugh.”  As they say, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.  Pretty true considering the current state of our country.  Go for the giggles!

Seth Rogen: His new flick–Zack and Miri Make a Porno–is running into some marketing problems.  Apparently a lot of places don’t want to advertise something so risque.  That only makes us want to see it more!

Project Runway: Picked its fifth winner last night.  This is getting old.

World Series: Rapidly approaching but the end might be getting farther.  MLB says the sixth game might be delayed due to Obama’s purchase of air time.

CW: Stepping up their game with a whole slew of guest stars for November sweeps–including Perez Hilton?!

The WB: Our new favorite site.  Watch full episodes of OTH, Everwood, The O.C., Smallville, Friends.  The lists gone on and on!  You MUST check it out!

More Crashes: Sadly, two more accidents happened this week.  Both Blake Lively’s dad and Gale Harold (of Desperate Housewives) were both injured in car wrecks.

Kanye West: What’s a good way to demonstrate the raw, natural quality your new album?  If you’re Kanye, that means having 30-plus completely naked women sitting on stage as the album plays.  We think the connection is a bit of a stretch.
