#1 album in the country!

#1 album in the country!

Mark Ruffalo: So yesterday we said the suspect was in custody.  She’s since been released now that there’s evidence pointing to suicide!

Britney: New album topped the charts.  Comeback complete or just beginning?

Tom Cruise: This week’s PEOPLE cover story.  Finally, a TomKat feature by a reputable magazine!

Brad Pitt: Says, predictably, that he and Angie weren’t too happy about last month’s NYT piece that called her manipulative. “[They’re] talking about not only the woman I love, but one of the people on this planet who I have the greatest respect for.”  Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Pete Wentz: Named Travis McCoy (of Gym Class Heroes) godfather of Bronx Mowgli.  Why not Pete Stump or one of the other Fall Out Boy bandmates?  (Sidenote:  now McCoy says he and GF Katy Perry have baby fever!)

Ricky Martin: Releasing photos of his twins, born via surrogate.  No romantic details, though, which is obviously what people really want.  The photos, though, apparently are good enough for the cover of PEOPLE En Espanol.

Fantasia: The economy is affecting (wannabe) stars, too.  The Idol winner has to auction her home.  This comes after needing a loan to pay her taxes.

Rolling Stone: Doing layoffs but still making lists.  TV on the Radio put out the album of the year and Beyonce’s Single Ladies is the top single.

Yahoo: To add insult to injury, the script used to tell thousands they lost their job today has leaked to the ‘net.  Bet that makes them feel reallllll good.  Also, it’s worth taking a look at Yahoo’s history.

One governor's "web of deceit"

One governor's "web of deceit"

Mark Ruffalo: His brother, who was shot in the head last week, has died of his injuries.  The suspect finally turned herself in and will likely face a murder charge.

Grey’s Anatomy: This has been burning up the web the last few hours.  Apparently T.R. Knight has asked to be released from his contract.  Not all that surprising but still should be interesting to see how it unfolds.

Gossip Girl: Getting some buzz for their clever episode titles.  If memory serves us correctly, The O.C. (also by GG creator Josh Schwartz) had some pretty good ones, too.  Can’t forget The Chrismukkah Bar Mitz-vahkkah or The SnO.C.!

Gossip Girl Pt. 2: We’ve been seeing a lot of speculation that Bart Bass isn’t actually dead.  Thoughts?

Rod Blagojevich: Most interesting to us about the arrested governor is that he actually thought he could have the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune fired!  Looks like he failed overall but still managed to cause some trouble for the paper.

Rod Blagojevich Pt. 2: If that chart above (by Gawker) is any indication, the soon-to-be former governor had a lot of connections.  Who will emerge unscathed?  Let’s hope Obama!

Rod Blogojevich Pt. 3: RedEye nominates Rick Astley to replace him.  We. Love. It.

Oprah: Admitting how much weight she’s gained–and how its fluxated through the years makes us feel a lot better!

According to Jim: Everyone’s quick to bash this show without realizing it has been leading the ratings for years.  Obviously, someone out there likes it!

Holiday TV: A fun look at the best and worst holiday-themed episodes of our favorite shows.  Oddly, there’s only two listed for the ‘worst.’  Surely there’s a lot more!

NBC: Ya know how General Motors is failing more and more each day?  So is NBC, says Newsday.  And no, they’re not being too harsh.

Yahoo: Massive layoffs happening today.

Rolling Stone: Already did theirs.

Twitter: Did you know we’re on there?  Yep, we are.

SIZZLED OUT: Wanda Sykes

STILL SIZZLING: This rapper was just arrested for the umpteenth time this year alone.  Doesn’t he ever learn?

Some of us ARE happy with the way our shows ended, James/Dawson/new guy/whoever you are!

Some of us ARE happy with the way our shows ended, James/Dawson/new guy/whoever you are!

Britney: We LOVE the Rolling Stone cover.  Can’t wait to read the full story.

Speidi: If the elopement wasn’t planned, how come US Weekly was there to report on the whole thing?  Fishy as always.  (Both US Weekly and Speidi!)

OTH: Last night’s episode was PHENOMENAL, but, unfortunately, it’ll have to hold us over until January.  And will it pick back up where it left off or will time have passed like in reality? Thankfully, Mark Schwahn gave one of his best interviews in a while and we’ll be analyzing it over and over again for at least the next month.

OTH Pt. 2: Was James Van Der Beek playing Dawson 5 years later or one of the shiteous directors Dawson faced when he went off to LA?  Best line: “If there’s one thing I know, it’s that audiences get crazy over who ends up together.”  You don’t say?!

Gossip Girl: Not on last night but back next week.  In the meantime, Kristin has some interesting scoop.  She says the Lily and Rufus back-story might play out on the web.  Would people actually tune in…er…log on for that?

PEOPLE: Already has a comprehensive Best of 2008 site up, where you get to share what was hot and what was not.   (Kind of reminds you of Sizzle, doesn’t it?)

Mad Men: The suits are hoping the show’s popularity will increase with a musical revue.  We don’t really see how those are related AT ALL.

24: The prequel scored higher than a lot of television shows do each week, but probably not high enough.  Oh, the irony.

Obama: Some say a new comedian will take over for Fred Armisen on SNL.  SNL insists otherwise.  But who else is there?

Box Office: With everyone’s wallet a little tighter these days, we doubt early Wednesday, pre-Thanksgiving, openings are going to help films one bit.  Sorry, Sean Penn, Nicole Kidman, Vince Vaughn and the rest of you who are hedging your bets.

BSB: Guess someone was listening (reading?) when we said the entire group should’ve reunited on TRL last week.

Chinese Democracy: Banned in China in more ways than one.

SIZZLED OUT: Nicollette Sheridan and David Spade

STILL SIZZLING: Which former boy bander just designed a public bathroom for Times Square?  Perhaps this is why he, too, was too busy to join his former bandmates at the TRL finale.

Guess they won't be doing THAT anymore!

Guess they won't be doing THAT anymore!

Madonna: So it’s true.  Their reps have released a joint statement.  Divorce will proceed.  Settlement not yet reached.  What we want to know: so did she really have an affair with A-Rod?

Rolling Stone: The over-sized mag is going on a diet.  Starting with the Oct. 30th issue, the magazine will appear just like all the other glossy mags out there.  They save money, we get more pages.  Good for everyone?

Janet Jackson: Her rep is saying the mysterious illness was a case of bad migraines.  Um, okay.

DWTS: Cloris Leachman, 82, is still in the competition.  We still think this can only end badly.

AMA: Among the nominees for the American Music Awards: Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Lil’ Wayne and Taylor Swift.  Jimmy Kimmel will host for the 5th time.  Guess people aren’t sick of him.

Beyonce: Will be giving fans a multiple choice with her new album: a 17-track double disc or an 11-song version.  Smart economical move?
