Are you all aboard?

Are you all aboard?

Madonna: Had a little horse riding accident this weekend thanks to none other than the fabulous paparazzi.  Guess no lesson’s been learned from Princess Diana’s tragic death.

Ellen Pompeo: Grey’s Anatomy fans rejoice!  Maybe.  Pompeo is preggers with her first child.  Who knows–maybe Meredith and Derek will have a little one, too!

Rosie O’Donnell: Just the latest person to hop on the Susan Boyle trainSays Ro of Boyle’s Britain’s Got Talent performance: “It was a perfect moment.”

SAG: Could it be?  An actors’ strike averted?  That’s the word coming from Screen Actors Guild and union sources.  But the contract still needs to be approved.

Jossip: And another potential place of employment bites the dust.  Though the site iself is claiming this is just a “pause.”  Sigh.

Jezebel: Made a list–videos included–of the “cheesiest” TV openers.  Not gonna lie: we kind of love it.

Bill Clinton: Had the privilege of seeing the former president up-close-and-personal for the very first time and, sadly, he is definitely getting older!

SIZZLED OUT: My Sister’s Keeper

STILL SIZZLING: This romantic comedy hunk says he’s in no rush to marry, even though he already has a mini-me with his model girlfriend.

Do you see any resemblance?

Do you see any resemblance?

SAG: Best quote of the night goes to Meryl Streep, who said “I didn’t even buy a dress!” while expressing her shock that she won best actress in a drama for Doubt.

Drew Barrymore: Ready and willing to make a Charlie’s Angels 3.  We never saw the first two!

Prince Harry: Cancel the royal wedding!  The heir to the throne split with his girlfriend of five years.  The brightside: ladies, you are this much closer to one day being queen!

Obama: No word from the president yet but the Mrs. sure ain’t happy that Ty is releasing dolls that look just like First Daughters Sasha and Malia.  More important: what do THEY think?  Bet they love it!

Molly Ringdwald: Now that she’s preggers with twins, her TV daughter won’t be the only one having a baby on The Secret Life of the American Teenager.  Makes for a great storyline, no?

Rumer Willis: In a new interview, Willis opens up about how Ashton Kutcher went from being her favorite posterboy to her stepdad.  Awkkkkwardddd.

SIZZLED OUT: Patrick Swayze

STILL SIZZLING: This soon-to-be Broadway star is torn about doing a movie version of her mother-daughter TV series.  We say go for it!

Saying 'Take that, Angie!'?

Saying 'Take that, Angie!'?

90210: Still in “talks” with Tori Spelling.  We don’t even care anymore.

Jennifer Aniston: We love when she talks about Brangelina!  Here’s a new gem: “‘The funny thing is, people don’t realize we all go away to The Hamptons on the weekends,” jokes Aniston. “That’d be hysterical: I’ve got Zahara on my hip, and Knox…'” Great sense of humor!

Golden Globes: Nominations are out.  Oscar noms still to come.  What’s the difference?  Not much.

50 Cent: “Addicted” to success, he says.  And if there were a rehab for it, he’d go.  Somehow we doubt that.

James Frey: Interned for Gawker yesterday.  Doesn’t get much more random than that.

SAG: The strike could come as soon as January!  The 120,000 members will receive authorization ballots in the mail.

NPR: Cutting seven percent of its staff.  We should probably just change careers now.

TV Squad: Believes eliminating piracy–aka allowing “illegal” downloads–could save the industry.  Interesting logic.

Jay Leno: His primetime deal could usher in an era of even more less-scripted TV.  After all, now NBC will have more hours of talk shows than any other kind.

NBA: You can watch basketball in 3-D on Valentine’s Day if you don’t have a date.  Or maybe, even if you do.

Barney: The “I Love You, You Love Me Song” is being used to torture prisoners in Guantanamo.  We couldn’t make this shit up if we tried!

SIZZLED OUT: DMX

STILL SIZZLING: This actor says, in 8 years, he wants to have a film on Barack Obama ready–with him as the star!

December 2, 2008 Pt. 2

Before...and...After

Before...and...After

Patrick Swayze: Don’t believe the tabloids, he says. (We could’ve told you that!) Yes, he does have cancer but the battle against it is going well and he is not on his deathbed. Hurrah!

SAG: Is it possible an actors’ strike won’t make much of a difference? That could be the case, predicts the LA Times, which points out that many shows are made under AFTRA rules and thus won’t be on strike.

Prison Break: Even Robert Knepper knows his character T-Bag is an “animal.” But here’s what we want to know: if the show does end with this season, as rumored, will T-Bag finally get the death he deserves?

Gossip Girl: Given how much the stars’ looks have changed since they started in the biz, we have renewed hope that we, too, will one day be magazine cover-worthy.

TV Sales: Who knew you could use them to measure the state of the economy?

Soap Operas: From fired stars to greatly-reduced salaries, the economy sure is killing one of our favorite genres. Melodramatic indeed.

Soap Operas Pt. 2: We have to give All My Children credit for casting a real-life Iraqi veteran to play one on the show. But more credit goes to J.R. Martinez himself for all he’s accomplished since being severely burned in 2003.

Salvation Army: Using Facebook and Twitter to drum up donations. Clever or tired?

Facebook: Feeling spammed by application requests? (See above for an example.) You’re not alone.

TiVo: Do you record and record but never actually sit down and watch and yet you still don’t delete? Then you’re suffering from TiVo guilt! Don’t you feel better now that there’s an actual diagnosis? We’re pretty sure we’d have this, too, if we actually had a TiVo.

Carnegie Hall-worthy!  Who woulda thunk it?!

Carnegie Hall-worthy! Who woulda thunk it?!

DWTS: Brooke Burke and Derek Hough were declared the winners last night.  We’re cool with that, though we also would’ve been happy if Lance won.

DWTS Pt. 2: Does life change after you’ve won the trophy?  Hardly.

Gossip Girl: Josh Schwartz has squashed yesterday’s news of a Lily and Rufus flashback show.  What he’s planning instead: webisodes all about Blair’s maid, Dorota.

Carson Daly: The TV host, known for getting stars to spill, has been keeping a secret of his own: he’s gonna be a dad!  Jennifer Love Hewitt and Tara Reid, you better get busy!

SAG: The actors’ strike is more likely to happen when you got big names like Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep supporting it.  Thanks a lot, guys.

NBC: Among the winter schedule changes: two SNL specials, more reality shows and a TV movie.  We doubt ratings will improve.

Family Guy: Seth Green (who voices Chris) and Carnegie Hall kinda seem like a mismatch, but we guess you gotta give the people what they want.  And what they want is a live reading of Family Guy scripts.  Go figure.

Reality TV: Here’s another reason to hate it: people are actually being diagnosed with Truman Syndrome, a type of paranoia where they (incorrectly) think their life is being documented by cameras.  If it wasn’t so sad, we’d probably laugh.

Thanksgiving: Forget the turkey.  All you need is a TV!  There’ll be marathons of faves like I Love Lucy, House, Fresh Prince, Arrested Development and lots more ALL WEEKEND!

90210: One of those aforementioned marathons will be on SOAPNet, with focusing on Kelly’s love life (creatively titled Kelly’s Leftovers).  Doesn’t get much better than that.  But it does get worse: we won’t have access to SOAPNet that day! Tragic.

MTV: Will have its own Inaugural Ball in D.C.  No worries if you can’t go;  they’ll also broadcast it on MTV’s 894328297312 channels.

SIZZLED OUT: Joey Fatone (NSYNC)

STILL SIZZLING: This tear drop-tattooed artist made the best album of the year, or so says Blender.

Hey baby! Rock steady!

24: Friendly reminder that the 2-hour prequel airs tonight on Fox.

Lost: TV Guide says there’s a subliminal message in the trailer for the upcoming season.  Anyone figure out what it means?

Michelle Williams: In an interview with Newsweek, the actress says how she struggled–and still does–in the months since Heath’s death.  The article is heartbreaking.

Josh Schwartz: Says he hopes Gossip Girl will be in its 22nd season in 20 years, then says he’s kidding.  Somehow, we don’t think he is.

SAG: An actor’s strike is looming.  There will be tears.

No Doubt: After a baby-making and solo-project filled hiatus, the band is getting back together for a summer tour.  Hella good!

Twilight: Having such a great opening weekend, the next installment just got the green light.  We’re pretty sure we won’t see that one, either.

Gawker: A fun look at the celebrity couples that “boggle the mind and tug at the heart.”

Seinfeld: The show lives!

SIZZLED OUT: Anna Wintour (Vogue)

STILL SIZZLING: Which celebrity had this to say about her upcoming film: “I wish it was ‘She’s Just Not That Into You’! Unfortunately, it’s ‘He’s Just Not That Into You.’ The other would be more empowering.”  Considering her love life lately, this attitude comes as no surprise.

The cast of All My Sons

The cast of All My Sons

Katie Holmes: Her short guest stint on Eli Stone will impact the whole season.  And her Broadway show has officially opened.  I don’t think Mrs. Tom Cruise needs anymore ego boosts.

John McCain: Admits he “screwed up” by backing out of his Letterman appearance last week.  Let’s hope that isn’t something he ever has to admit again.

Travis Barker: Wrote on his blog that he should be coming home soon and can’t wait to be with his “babes.” We’re going to assume he meant babies and not, you know, babes.  Warning: There is a somewhat grotesque of his burnt hand at the bottom of the  entry.  Look at your own risk.

OTH: We thought we saw the last of Lindsey (Michaela McManus).  We haven’t.  Shit.

Gossip Girl: The author of the book series has both love and hate for the TV show.  Well, so do the rest of us.

Actors’ Strike: It’s becoming more and more likely as talks between SAG and the studios continue to break down.  Time to take precautionary measures: stock up your TiVo!

Lilo and Saman: Lohan’s publicist deliberately said recently they weren’t dating.  But when asked if they broke up, she said things are “fine.”  So which is it?

STILL SIZZLING: Which actors have been going back and forth this week about a not-so-little thing called autism?

SIZZLED OUT: Demi Moore, mother of Rumer Willis
