Meet Dorothy Gale

Meet Dorothy Gale

Sizzle: We’re back.  We know you missed us.  You can calm down now.

Lindsay Lohan: Her relationship with Samantha Ronson has never been anything less than bizarre.  Even though the restraining order reports are false, we wouldn’t be surprised in the least if either girl sought one.

Eminem: No better way to launch a comeback than to release a song and video taking potshots at practically everyone in the tabloids.  That’s Eminem for ya.

The Simpsons: MySpace is running a contest inviting fans to film their own couch gag.  Could see record participation for this one, we think.

Beverly Hills 90210: More than 10 years after it originally aired, season seven was released on DVD yesterday.  Who wants to bet that after all 10 seasons are done, they’ll make a complete series boxset and entice us to shell out even more money?

Oprah: Now that she’s done campaigning for Obama, O has turned her sights to the 2016 Olympics which, if she has her way, will be in our hometown of Chicago.  Honestly not sure if we want the Olympics here, so we can’t say whether the Oprah effect will be good or bad.

The Wizard of Oz: Getting a modern-day treatment for a new televisions series to be called Dorothy Gale.  Can’t see it having the same charm as the original, though.  To be fair, other Oz spin-offs (The Wiz, Wicked, etc.) have done quite well so this one might see some success, too.

SIZZLED OUT: Survivor

STILL SIZZLING: This one-time iconic sitcom dad–who is best known in real life for his foul comedy–returned to TV this week in another father role.

Lindsay wants the media to leave her and Sam alone.  Pictures like this will not help.

Lindsay wants the media to leave her and Sam alone. Pictures like this will not help.

Katy Perry:  Don’t believe reports that she’s dating Josh Groban.  The duo (clearly opposites!) are not together, says his rep.

Lindsay Lohan: Upset that people keep speculating on her relationship with Samantha Ronson.  Can’t say we blame her, but she has to understand by now that all this comes with being a “famous” person.

Facebook: Finally responding to “thousands” of messages from outraged users.

Sizzle: Posting may be sporadic and shortened in the coming days due to personal circumstances.  We appreciate your understanding.

SIZZLED OUT: Roseanne

STILL SIZZLING: A theatrical version of this reality show will debut at various theme parks this summer.  Not sure where it belongs, though.  Epcot? Animal Kingdom? MGM?  Universial Studios?  It could fit in so many places!

At least he LOOKS funny!

At least he LOOKS funny!

Natasha Richardson: In critical condition after a skiing accident.  Our favorite Natasha movie: The Parent Trap!  (Yes, the one with Lindsay Lohan.  Don’t judge!)

Obama: Going on The Tonight Show Thursday for the first time since he became president.  Good way to reach the masses or not the place for a head-of-state?

Zac Efron: Took some VERY scandalous photos for Interview Magazine.  What did Vanessa have to say about this?!

DJ AM: Seeking $20 million in damages for injuries, physical and otherwise, in the September plane crash with Travis Barker. Can’t say we blame him but throwing money at a problem doesn’t exactly fix it.

Don Imus: The controversial but very successful radio talk show host announced yesterday that he has prostate cancer.  Ironically, he’s spent a great deal of his life working with cancer patients, especially children.

Fall Out Boy: Bringing 50 Cent on tour with them.  Something tells us they don’t quite appeal to exactly the same audience…

MTV: Tapped Andy Samberg to host May’s movie awards.  Not necessarily a bad choice but we never really found his style of funny, well, funny.

SIZZLED OUT: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

STILL SIZZLING: This niche channel is changing its name–ever so slightly–in hopes that’ll become “less geeky.”  Yeah, good luck with that!

Girl Becomes Woman

Girl Becomes Woman

ANTM: Video of the so-called stampede at this weekend’s New York audition left us speechless.  Can you imagine that many people running–in heels?!

Lindsay Lohan: First there was an arrest warrant.  Then there was a misunderstanding.  Is anything ever straight forward with this girl?  (Insert your own bisexual joke here.)

Lindsay Lohan Pt. 2: Gawker has supposedly exposed her Twitter account.  Interesting to read in light of the above.

Charlie Sheen: Named his twin boys Max and Bob.  That’s it?  Really?  Sure you’re a celeb, Charlie?

Josh Schwartz: The mastermind behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl has developed a web-only series called Rockville CA.  If his track record is any indication, it’ll probably be underappreciated amazingness.

Nickelodeon: Say goodbye to The N and hello to TeeNick.  And if you have youngins, Noggin will change to Nick Jr.  Maybe rebranding will help it kick some Disney butt?

Anna Chlumsky: Don’t recognize the name?  Then maybe you’ve forgotten the awesomeness that was My Girl and My Girl 2.  Chlumsky is returning to the airwaves via a CBS pilot.  It’s still the year of the comeback, isn’t it?

Sizzlemaker: Working on a new Twitter-related project.  Get excited!

SIZZLED OUT: Heathers

STILL SIZZLING: This buff actor, who is trying to change his image with a series of kid-friendly films, admitted he took steroids in college.

Think anyone did this to her while she was preggers?

Think anyone did this to her while she was preggers?

Jennifer Garner: Gave birth yesterday to daughter number two.  No word yet if the name will be another crayon color.

John Travolta: Predictably, John, Jett and Kelly Preston are on the cover of this week’s PEOPLE.  Will probably be a big seller.

American Idol: Telling people not to believe a letter they may receive in a mail claiming they’ve won prize money.  Gotta love scams.

Nip/Tuck: Got a scathing review from the Sun-Sentinel.  While we wouldn’t be quite as harsh, we agree the show doesn’t seem as fresh and cutting edge (no pun intended) anymore.

Sarah Palin: After praising her daughter and soon-to-be son-in-law for working hard, word comes that new father Levi Johnston has quit his job after a newspaper discovered he wasn’t eligible for the position.  Ah, investigative journalism at its finest!

The Real World: The Brooklyn edition premieres tonight.  Kind of over it.  How ’bout you?

iTunes: Changing their pricing so that songs cost differently depending on how “popular” they are.

Forbes: T’was their turn for yesterday.  Lucky them.

The Atlantic: Wrote a piece speculating on what would happen if The New York Times went out of business and, let us tell you, it ain’t pretty.

SIZZLED OUT: Lindsay Lohan (Samantha Ronson)

STILL SIZZLING: This singer is offering a contest where fans can submit videos to air during her performance at the Grammys.  Will they try it and will they like it?

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!

Alive and well!

Alive and well!

Miley Cyrus: If you went to the tween’s MySpace yesterday, you might’ve seen a freaky message: that the 16-year-old Miley was dead.  Alas, it is not true (as evident by her appearance on the TRL finale last night) and her page was actually hacked.  Not cool!

Britney: In case you missed it on MTV last night, a preview of a Britney-focused documentary has hit the ‘net.

NYT: One of their own is under fire for using Facebook as a way to contact teens to be interviewed for a story.  And a new ethics debate begins…

NYT Pt. 2: And here the paper mulls the possibility of it’s own demise if the economy doesn’t improve.

SIZZLED OUT: Lindsay Lohan

STILL SIZZLING: Rumor had it that this star–who still looks like she’s 17, if you ask us–went into labor.  Not true, though, if you ask her rocker husband, fatherhood is imminent.
