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.

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.

Idol's new judge is getting married!

Idol's new judge is getting married!

American Idol: Back tonight.  Will you be watching?

American Idol Pt. 2: New judge Kara DioGuardi announced today that she’s engaged.  Randy Jackson is the only other married judge currently on the show.

American Idol Pt. 3: Yes!  David Cook and Kimberly Caldwell broke up!  This means we still have a chance!

Jennifer Garner: We have a name for daughter number two.  And we don’t like it one bit.

Howie Mandel: In and out of the hospital for an “irregular heartbeat.”  Maybe Deal or No Deal is just too exciting for him?

Prison Break: As expected, the show won’t be back next year.  We all can admit the show has run its course.  That said, we have no idea how it’ll end! And why do they still call it canceled when the shows execs and actors even say they don’t want to continue?  Mutual decision, people!  Canceled does not convey that!

Josh Holloway: The Lost star told PEOPLE some pretty disturbing details about he and his wife being held at gunpoint in 2005.  Never want to imagine what that’s like.

Allison Sweeney: Life just got even busier for The Biggest Loser host and longtime Days of Our Lives star: she gave birth to another child!

As The World Turns: If you missed yesterday’s show, you missed a lot. Gay characters Luke and Noah, who caused a firestorm when they kissed on the show more than than a year ago, finally had sex.  Of course nothing more than shirtless making out was shown but it’s still a big step forward.

Vogue: Insiders are speculating that putting Blake Lively on the February cover is a sign of how bad things are for the mag.  Not sure we get it, but whatevs.

Facebook: It’ll take another year but the social network could outpower MySpace.

Indirectly supporting Obama with a pre-inaguration concert

Indirectly supporting Obama with a pre-inauguration concert

Brad Pitt: Calls Jennifer Aniston a “sweetheart” in a new interview and says any drama between Jen and Angelina is “created” by the media. Also adds that the way he and Angie got together was “respectful.”  Jen might disagree with that…

Fashion Week: The economy is even taking its toll on one of the most anticipated week’s in fashion.  Several top designers have decided not to hold runway shows this year at the usually extravagant Fashion Week in New York City.  Though if you ask the designers themselves, they’ll tell you the economy has nothing to do with it.

Obama: Even if you can’t attend the inauguration in person, you can still get a close look thanks to HBO which will be airing the festivities.  The best part: you don’t even have to be an HBO subscriber to watch!

Jay-Z: But if you will be in D.C., Jay-Z is holding a special concert the night before the ceremony.

Golden Globes: Maybe it’s wrong of us to be so happy about this but the Globes will be handing out this year significantly smaller gift bags to celebs.

Entertainment Weekly: An editorial shake-up has one of our favorite PEOPLE editors, Jess Cagle, leaving the mag and becoming managing editor at EW.  Guess we can live with that.

Jossip: Among what they call the “worst” blogs out there (we’re not on it, whew!) are celebrity Twitter and MySpace pages.  We beg to differ.

If Madonna's not dating him, we will!

If Madonna's not dating him, we will!

A-Rod: Just “friends” with Madonna, he says. “That’s it.” Guess we have to believe him.

O.J. Simpson: Sentenced to at least 15 years in jail for armed robbery. Long overdue, some will surely say.

Johnny Depp: Says being a celebrity is “mortifying.” We have no sympathy.

Oprah: The most powerful woman in entertainment, says The Hollywood Reporter. We’ll get on board with that.

Priviledged: Guess sweeps stunts aren’t over at The CW. They just scheduled Pete Wentz to guest star. Is there anything that guy doesn’t do?

Gossip Girl: Spin-off buzz is building again. We’ll believe when we see it.

Gossip Girl Pt. 2: Legit Facebook profiles of the cast?

Pepsi: Receiving major flack for suicide-themed ads in Germany. We’d like to meet the person that thought they would be a good idea.

Trailers: We’re not the only ones who like them more than movies themselves!

Rush & Malloy: One of the most famous gossip columns is going from daily to weekly. Another sign of the times?

Mollywood: The gossip blog is shutting down. Jossip will try to fill the void.

MySpace: When one door closes, another opens. Launching its own gossip site, DailyFill though their label won’t be anywhere on it. Beneficial?

Gawker: Has a pretty fair response to EW’s 25 Smarted People in TV list.

Newsday: Another job opportunity gone. Our hometown paper is laying off 100 staffers. Happy Friday!

Media Ink: Filled with more bad news.

Nielsen: Think they suck? Here’s your chance to tell them. Please don’t waste 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.
