Oh, Brandon, you're too pretty to be angry!

Oh, Brandon, you're too pretty to be angry!

Madonna: Reportedly reached a settlement with soon-to-be ex-husband Guy Ritchie.  How many of you are disappointed there won’t be a long, drawn-out court fight?

90210: No new episodes until January.  We think this is a good thing.  Buddy TV just wrote a pretty fair assessment of the first half of the season, though we probably would’ve been a bit harsher.

90210 Pt. 2: Up for Favorite New Television Drama at the People’s Choice Awards.  Absurd.  Totally absurd.  See above.

DWTS: When Julianne Hough was eliminated the other night, we had no idea it would be her last time on the show, like, ever!  She says she doesn’t plan on returning next season, and singing will be her primary focus.  Blasphemous!

Salon: Named Robert Downey Jr. the Sexiest Man Living.  Blatant rip-off of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive.

Wall-E: Quite possibly more popular with adults than kids.  Considering the film went over even our heads a little, we can believe that.

The Killers: What happens when you misquote one of their lyrics?  Brandon Flowers gets very, very angry.

PC Magazine: Will be on-line only in the future.  On the one hand, this makes complete sense for a mag all about computers.  On the other hand, it’s just more bad news for the industry.

Rosie O’Donnell: Promises controversy-free fun on next week’s Rosie Live.  “The job description here is to entertain. … It will be an hour of fun, laughter, singing and dancing,” she said.  We wish we were in the audience!

The View: In response to another part of the above interview, where Rosie reflects on her frustrating times at The View, Babs said today (on-air) that Rosie needs to move on with her life.  She kinda is, though, no?  It’s not Ro’s fault the interviewers keep asking her questions that rehash old shit!

Linsday, didn't you know there's a price to pay for bad ratings?  Get it--Price?!

Britney: New York music station KTU has six tracks of Brit’s upcoming album.  Not gonna lie, we’re hoping for a full-fledged Britney comeback.

90210: People are already talking about next week’s ep.  The preview clip shows Brenda admitting to frenemy Kelly that she slept with Ryan, Kel’s current flame.  Hold up!  Didn’t Shannen Doherty say she didn’t want to do high school love triangle stuff again?  We call for a rewrite.

Lipstick Jungle: And now that this show is canceled, will Lindsay Price make an appearance on 90210?  If she does, Ian better be with her!

Mad TV: It’s a mad, mad world when this show is also canceled!  Or is it?

Pushing Daisies: Might be next on the chopping block.  And if it happens, creator Bryan Fuller says you can expect the series to be wrapped up in a comic book.  Oddly fitting for an odd show.

Monopoly: Coming to a theater near you.  How exactly, we’re really not sure.

Anthony Kiedis: Can a rock star’s childhood make for a red hot TV series?  That’s what this Chili Pepper thinks.  And HBO, too, apparently.  They’ve greenlit his life story as an hourlong drama.

Foo Fighters: Who knew Dave Grohl was such a foodie?  He and his bandmates will be guest judges on Top Chef.

Daniel Craig: Being James Bond is painful?  And here we thought the loads of money made up for that.

Ben Stiller: There could be a third film in the Meet the Parents series, Stiller says.  We wouldn’t object but we’re not sure who’s left to meet.

Facebook: One of EW’s entertainers of the year?  Really?  (Top honors go to Robert Downey Jr.)

Thomas Beatie: The pregnant man is pregnant again!

Going all politico on us. If only we actually asked for it.

Going all politico on us. If only we actually asked for it.

Jennifer Hudson: Established a foundation in memory of her slain relatives to help other families who’ve lost loved ones to violent crimes.  Her speedy actions only help underscore the lessons from the past week: There is no time to waste.  Life is short.  Seize the day.

The View: Put a presidential spin on Halloween costumes this year.  And, yes, this means they all cross-dressed.

Kid Rock: Finally, a celeb who doesn’t want to shove his politics down your throat!  Who is the rapper/rocker/country singer voting for?  He’s not saying because IT DOESN’T MATTER.  Amen.

Joe the Plumber: Sort of following in Kid Rock’s footsteps.  Trying to make his 15 minutes of fame last a little longer with…a country music career?  Yeah, good luck with that.

John Mayer: Definitely not following in Kid Rock’s footsteps.  Makes a surprisingly well-written case for Obama.  Still, we guarantee you this actually cost the presidential candidate some votes.

Forbes: Compiled a part-creepy, part-sad, part-surprising list of the top-earning deceased stars.  Heath Ledger ranks third.  We wish that was a good thing.

Hip-Hop Stars: Should they reduce the bling exposure while the economy is in the crapper?  The Huffington Post thinks so.

MLB: Is there a problem with the World Series?  Besides, we mean, not actually being open to the entire world.  Yes, if you consider the poor timing of the games, the team monopolies and the fixation on revenue.

Iron Man: Robert Downey Jr. hasn’t even begun filming the sequel yet and he’s already signed on for film number 3.

SIZZLED OUT: Joaquin Phoenix

STILL SIZZLING: Which veejay turned dramatic actress will return for TRL’s farewell next month?
