Will he get America's vote?

Will he get America's vote?

American Idol: The New York Times wrote the best piece we’ve seen yet exploring the possibility that the show might end up with its first gay Idol–Adam Lambert.  The world can definitely handle that, no?

Phil Spector: In trial number two, the former go-to music producer was convicted of second degree murder.  He and his wacky hair will undoubtedly face jail time when he’s sentenced in May.

Mel Gibson: News that his wife filed for divorce isn’t that surprising.  What is is that they’ve been separated for three years.  Pretty sure they both vacationed with Britney last spring, though.  Maybe we’re wrong?

Zac Efron: Probably doesn’t realize it yet but he put his foot in his mouth twice in one interview with GQ.  First Efron slammed celebs who drink and hook up publicly, then he vowed not to get married til 30, “if ever.”  And how does Vanessa feel about that?

Reality TV: Here’s a short, interesting piece on lawsuits that result from reality shows.  Considering the lengthy contract we signed for Wheel of Fortune (and that was just a little game show!), we’re surprised suits like these are even possible!

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This network is planning an “anti-makeover” reality show.  Instead of figuring out what that means, can’t they just go back to I Love Lucy repeats?

Silent Bob isn't staying silent anymore.

Silent Bob isn't staying silent anymore.

Sean Penn: Visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for the second time in two years.  Does a star’s political activities influence whether people pay to see his movies?  We’ll soon find out: his next flick, Milk, comes out in early December.

Brothers & Sisters: After a high-profile search for new character Ryan Walker, the execs have chosen someone with very little credits to his name: Luke Grimes.  We have no idea who he is but a quick Google search shows a 20-something guy with long-ish hair and some stubble.  Is this the next television heartthrob in the making?

Jennifer Hudson: Now that The Secret Life of Bees is in theater, we’ll see if the Idol alum can have 3 great flicks in a row.  And if not, there’s always that music career.

Survivor: Arguably the most successful show of the decade but the flame might extinguish soon.  Ratings are down, the economy sucks and ad execs are being more frugal with their money.  Good times.

Ne-Yo: Plans to star in a “music-driven romance” called Venice Beach.  Can being smooth and infectious in music translate to the big screen?  We’re doubtful.

Kevin Smith: Took to his blog to say how excited he is for Zack and Miri Make a Porno–and that he’s “really fat right now” and plans to lose a ton of weight after press for the movie is done.  Doesn’t he realize his size is one of the things that makes him so endearing and identifiable?

Phil Spector: He faces trial number two for allegedly killing actress Lana Clarkson.  The first trial, which ended in deadlock, lasted 5 months.  Can’t believe he–or Clarkson’s family–have to go through all that again!

Oprah: Available in Spanish for the first time in 22 seasons.  What took so long?!
