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!

I'm addicted to gossip blogs!

I'm man enough to admit this: I'm addicted to gossip blogs!

The CW: We guess they’re going for a guest star bonanza: last night, Cyndi Lauper popped up on Gossip Girl and tonight’s Privileged promises an appearance from Perez  Hilton.

Speidi: How I Met Your Mother officially jumped the shark.  Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are guest-starring.  Like these two need any more television exposure!

Lost: Can a very complicated show become simpler thanks to musical recaps?  You decide.

50 Cent: Namedrops…blogs?  Yep.  Perez, Gawker and more.  At least he has fairly decent taste.

Keith Olbermann: Can you cover an election and not actually vote?  Yes, says Mr. MSNBC.

PEOPLE: The staff cuts have begun.  There goes our future. We feel like crying.

SIZZLED OUT: Ben Still and Chris Rock

STILL SIZZLING: The set of this investigative series went ablaze last week.  No injuries, thankfully, and maybe they’ll get a new plotline out of it!

Jennifer Hudson and her late mother, Darnell

Jennifer Hudson and her late mother, Darnell

Jennifer Hudson: After finding out her mother and brother were murdered yesterday, the actress-singer has returned home to Chicago.  Hudson’s nephew is still missing and the FBI have joined the investigation, though a suspect–allegedly the boy’s father–is in custody. We can’t imagine the pain Hudson, who lost her father when she was a teen (and just got engaged last month), feels right now and we hope we’ll never have to.

Fall Out Boy: Trying to break a world record by appearing on more than 57 radio shows in a given day.  ‘Cause, you know, that’s cool.

DWTS: Reports are circulating that there’s beef between Cloris and the rest of the cast–though denials are being issued, too.  We all know they’re just upset that an 82-year-old has made it this far in the competition.

The View: Should the co-hosts not be allowed to wear politically-inspired clothing on the show?  That’s the latest coming from Barbara Walters after McCain-lover Elisabeth Hasselbeck sported a shirt for him on the show.  Stepping on free speech?  We’re undecided.

The CW: The network is no longer considered near-death thanks to the ratings improvement for Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill and the (questionable) success of 90210.  Though this makes us happy, we’re not gonna lie: we miss the WB.

Palin: Should she get a gig hosting a talk show if the whole VP thing doesn’t work out?  We’re thinking no.  If she doesn’t win for veep, obviously people don’t like her so why would they watch her show?

David Giuntoli: Who said there isn’t life after MTV?  This former no-name has parlayed a few seasons on Road Rules (and the spin-off challenges) into a role on Privileged.  Apparently he also kissed a dude on Grey’s Anatomy.  Who knew?

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Which megastar’s girlfriend is doing some of her own recording?  Perhaps they think it will help bring sexy back to their relationship.

Only one of these is having a baby.

Only one of these is having a baby.

Taylor Momsen: The youngest Gossip Girl is in the hospital with a throat infection!  It’s life-threatening, doctors say, but they also predict she’ll be fine.  Which is it?!

Alyson Hannigan: She’s preggers!  And no, Jim is not the father.

DWTS: Bye, bye Toni Braxton.  Probably for the best with that heart problem and all.

Friday Night Lights: Wondering where it is?  Only on DirectTV.  What a scam.

Roseanne: It’s been 20 years since the show’s debut.  We feel old.

Julianne Hough: After doing what we now know was a superb acting job on live TV last night, the 20-year-old was taken to the hospital.  Today she says she’s “ok.”  The culprit?  A stomachache.  Can’t she just suck it up like the rest of us?

ABC: A memo went out to all show execs: wardrobe spending will be limited here on out.  Cheap?  Or efficient?

Privileged: That other show on the CW.  Has flown under the radar because it’s not Gossip Girl-esque.  Says its creator (Rina Mimoun of our eternal favorite Everwood), that was precisely the point.

50 Cent: Granted once-a-month visitation with his son.  And he’s happy about that–but is the kid? Man, we’d want to see our dad (a famous one, no less) a lot more than that!
