Do you agree with PEOPLE's choice?

Do you agree with PEOPLE's choice?

Chris Brown: If attorney Mark Geragos has his way, the case against Chris Brown will be dismissed.  Geragos is arguing that the case is tainted due to media leaks and should be thrown out.  It’s a big longshot but who knows what’ll happen?

Christina Applegate: Earned the top spot on PEOPLE’s annual Most Beautiful list.  Not a bad choice but not exactly someone we think is drop-dead gorgeous.  But this is about inner beauty, too, and she definitely has that.

Obama: Last night’s press conference reportedly cost the 3 big networks more than $20 million.  Are we wrong in thinking that’s peanuts for this industry?

Sean Penn: She cried in happiness for his wins during award seasons but that wasn’t enough to stop Penn from filing for a legal separation from wife Robin Wright Penn.  Hate when families can’t make it work.

Swine flu: This is an interesting thought.  Might the potential pandemic cause a rise in TV ratings?  If people are avoiding the outdoors, they might just turn to the old-fashioned television set for entertainment…

Swine flu Pt. 2: Contrary to rumors, the illness did not affect production on the The Real World: Cancun.  While it’s good no one got sick, it definitely would’ve added some new drama to the mix.

SIZZLED OUT: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

STILL SIZZLING: This model turned talk-show host appeared in court yesterday testifying against an alleged stalker.  The star hopes he’ll be walking the runway straight to jail.

Just needed to add some females to this post!

Just needed to add some females to this post!

Zac Efron: Absolutely loved the HSM skit he did on SNL this weekend.  Except for the anti-Semitic Walt Disney.  That part wasn’t necessary.

Eminem: Will be performing at the MTV Movie Awards, according to MTV’s Twitter acount.

Fast & Furious: After the record-breaking success (really!) of the franchise’s fourth installment, they’re now planning a fifth one!  Don’t think anyone expected this!

Obama: Love that the identity of his dog can’t even stay secret!  The news was leaked by an anonymous site before The Washington Post, given rights to the story, could report it.

RENT: We had the opportunity to see our favorite musical this weekend for the sixth time!  What made this performance so special?  It starred Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal back in the roles they originated more than 10 years ago.  And they were as amazing as ever!

Scott Peterson: Always was and always will be fascinated by the Laci/Scott Peterson case.  Really glad to PEOPLE did an update on the story.

SIZZLED OUT: Beyonce and Jay-Z

STILL SIZZLING: This singer praised her Rihanna for being a “cool chick.”  Did she kiss her, too?

Yes, Hugh Jackman is this mad!

Yes, Hugh Jackman is this mad!

John Travolta: Three months have passed since his son Jett died.  PEOPLE is marking the bitter anniversary with a cover story on how the Travoltas are doing.

Zac Efron: His first Funny or Die video launched yesterday and, well, we didn’t find it funny at all.  Maybe Zac just can’t do comedy?  We’re eager to see 17 Again.  Then we’ll decide.

Hugh Jackman: Quite peeved that early versions of Wolverine hit the internet and we don’t blame him.  But, to be honest, though, it probably won’t hurt the box office–or his paycheck–all that much.

Oprah: See, she CAN have a negative effect!  Innocent people across the country are being duped by fake e-mails suggesting O might give them a million dollars.  Oh, how we wish it were true!

Pushing Daisies: How’s this for bittersweet: the show is still canceled but ABC will at least air the remaining episodes this summer, along with what’s left of Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money.  Guess it’s better than never knowing what was going to happen?

SIZZLED OUT: Bob Saget (Full House, Surviving Suburbia)

STILL SIZZLING: This singer whose career longevity is only matched by that of his rock-solid marriage was just named in someone else’s divorce suit!

Would you pay to read this online?

Would you pay to read this online?

Chris Brown: Though Nickelodeon backed his nomination, Chris Brown has voluntarily removed himself from consideration in the Kids Choice Awards.  Voluntarily or secretly forced to?  Public (and private) pressure can be a very powerful thing.

PEOPLE: Its website, along with that of TIME, could go subscription-only in the relatively near future.  Readership would probably plummet, though, as you can get practically same information on a ton of other sites.  Would it be as accurate?  Probably not.  Sigh.

Patrick Swayze: Sad that as he tries to move forward with his life, the actor has to keep debunking rumors that he’s near death.  Tabloid “journalism” at its worst.

Mandy Moore: That was a quick engagement! Less than a month after confirming their plans to wed, Moore and Ryan Adams tied the knot.  That’s some carpe diem for ya!

MTV: Forget reality TV.  The one-time music network is ushering in a new style: the scripted comedy.  Can’t see any of the proposed shows lasting, though.

Bristol Palin: Multiple sources are reporting that Sarah Palin’s eldest daughter and her babydaddy have split.  Sad, but it didn’t have a good chance of lasting anyway.  Sure the media will a field day with it, though.

SIZZLED OUT: Paul McCartney

STILL SIZZLING: These two musically-inclined friends will go on Larry King Live tonight to recount their near-death experience.

A thriller of a press conference?

A thriller of a press conference?

Chris Brown: Charged yesterday with two felonies but got the arraignment postponed until April, so no plea was entered.  The attorney on Rihanna’s behalf said she did not wish to prohibit contact between the two.

Chris Brown Pt. 2: Jossip is one of the first outlets we’ve seen do a piece on how Brown’s being treated unfairly/inaccurately by the media.  Totally agree!

The Bachelor: Change of heart or betrayal?  Those the are words PEOPLE is floating around in their new cover story.  Should be a big seller, no?

DWTS: The new season hasn’t even officially started yet and already there’s drama!  Both Jewel, who was injured last week, and the now-injured Nancy O’Dell have dropped out of the competition!  Supposedly their replacements won’t be announced until the premiere Monday but we imagine it’ll leak before then!

Ashlee Simpson: PEOPLE has a clip of her CSI guest-appearance alongside hubby Pete Wentz and it ain’t pretty.  With no effort made to change their looks, it’s hard to believe these two are playing any character other than themselves.

Michael Jackson: So he’s planning a comeback/farewell tour (yeah, we don’t get it either) but all signs point to the fact that Jacko is still wacko.  He’s not even playing in the States!

Robin Williams: At 57 years young, the actor-comedian will have heart valve replacement surgery.  If only laughter truly was the best medicine!

Seinfeld: It’s a yada yada yada reunion!  Jerry Seinfeld and co will appear on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, their first joint TV gig in more than a decade!

The Real World: This is probably the best thing to come out of the show in years.  MTV made a biopic based on Pedro, the season one three cast member who struggled with–and eventually died from–AIDS.

SIZZLED OUT: Sherri Shepherd (The View)

STILL SIZZLING: This funny man recently got engaged.  Think anyone will crash his wedding?

Does this look old to you?

Does this look old to you?

Rihanna: The singer is trying to work things out with Chris Brown, PEOPLE is reporting.  Don’t really think it’s fair for any of us to judge.

Rosie O’Donnell: She’s blogging again!  After promising to go this year “unplugged,” Ro is back to writing missives and answering fan questions.

ANTM: The show will have a wider range of contestants for its thirteenth cycle now that they’ve decided to forgo the minimum height requirement.  Maybe we should sign up?  HA!

The Simpsons: A lawyer claimed in court that his client is like Homer Simpson, and therefore should get a light sentence.  Gotta love when television and the justice system collide.

Kristin Bell: Wants to do the Veronica Mars movie before she’s too old.  Sad to see she’s getting hung up on old Hollywood conventions.

SIZZLED OUT: Jerry Seinfeld

STILL SIZZLING: While promoting their movie, this Hollywood duo ate dog biscuits after losing a bet on a German talk show.

In love.  At least for today.

In love. At least for today.

AniMayer: Still wondering where this supposedly serious relationship came from?  PEOPLE has a great recap of their path to “love.”  Our question: how long til it’s over?

DWTS: Supposedly Lil’ Kim will “surprise a lot of people.” We’re pretty nervous that’ll all be from her wardrobe choices.  Also, Jewel will still compete despite a small injury this week.  Fun fact: Her hubby–and fellow competitor–thinks getting her pregnant will help him win!

The Simpsons: Will become the longest-running scripted show, with 22 seasons, in history now that Fox gave it a two-season extension.  To put it in context, though, this will mean only 400-something shows.  Beverly Hills, 90210 had 10 seasons and 300 shows!

Jamie Foxx: Taking name-dropping to a new level by…face-dropping.  The actor-turned-music star features a slew of celebrities in his new video, including Jake Gyllenhaal, Ron Howard, Samuel L. Jackson and more.  Random group, no?

Tom Brady: There’s little details out there but apparently he and Gisele Bundchen got married yesterday.  Wonder how his babymama, actress Bridget Moynahan, feels about this.

Newsday: The idea of paying for on-line news has been bandied about by a number of people and Newsday (our hometown paper!) announced that they’ll be doing just that.  Understand that newspapers need more revenue these days to function but not sure charging readers is the way to go.  Might even drive people away.

Wheel of Fortune: Don’t forget to watch Sizzlemaker tonight!  Check your local listings for time and channel.

SIZZLED OUT: Clue

STILL SIZZLING: This famous funny man is coming back to television…sort of.  He’ll be producing a reality show that, apparently, isn’t about nothing.
