I still matter!

I still matter!

Entertainment Weekly: Amidst more internal staff changes, Time Inc. claims the magazine will continue to publish.  Wonder if they had any fingers crossed when they gave that quote…

Susan Boyle: This may seem very mean but just remember we didn’t suggest it first!  PEOPLE is doing a poll on who should play Boyle in a biopic and Robin Williams is one of the options.  We do see a resemblance, not gonna lie.

Hulu: Partnering with Disney to show ABC and other affiliated shows like Lost and Grey’s Anatomy.  Your turn, YouTube.

John McCain: What we can only guess is an attempt to remain as relevant as his former running mate, Sarah Palin, the one-time presidential candidate will be host of a war-themed movie marathon on AMC.  Fail.

The Daily Beast: Put together a photo gallery of face masks inspired by the swine flu.  Some are pretty funny.  would love to see more!

SIZZLED OUT: Tyra Banks

STILL SIZZLING: This celeb hopes she won’t be judged for falling for a prank by Sacha Baron Cohen in the upcoming film, Bruno.

Would you pay to read this online?

Would you pay to read this online?

Chris Brown: Though Nickelodeon backed his nomination, Chris Brown has voluntarily removed himself from consideration in the Kids Choice Awards.  Voluntarily or secretly forced to?  Public (and private) pressure can be a very powerful thing.

PEOPLE: Its website, along with that of TIME, could go subscription-only in the relatively near future.  Readership would probably plummet, though, as you can get practically same information on a ton of other sites.  Would it be as accurate?  Probably not.  Sigh.

Patrick Swayze: Sad that as he tries to move forward with his life, the actor has to keep debunking rumors that he’s near death.  Tabloid “journalism” at its worst.

Mandy Moore: That was a quick engagement! Less than a month after confirming their plans to wed, Moore and Ryan Adams tied the knot.  That’s some carpe diem for ya!

MTV: Forget reality TV.  The one-time music network is ushering in a new style: the scripted comedy.  Can’t see any of the proposed shows lasting, though.

Bristol Palin: Multiple sources are reporting that Sarah Palin’s eldest daughter and her babydaddy have split.  Sad, but it didn’t have a good chance of lasting anyway.  Sure the media will a field day with it, though.

SIZZLED OUT: Paul McCartney

STILL SIZZLING: These two musically-inclined friends will go on Larry King Live tonight to recount their near-death experience.

Think anyone did this to her while she was preggers?

Think anyone did this to her while she was preggers?

Jennifer Garner: Gave birth yesterday to daughter number two.  No word yet if the name will be another crayon color.

John Travolta: Predictably, John, Jett and Kelly Preston are on the cover of this week’s PEOPLE.  Will probably be a big seller.

American Idol: Telling people not to believe a letter they may receive in a mail claiming they’ve won prize money.  Gotta love scams.

Nip/Tuck: Got a scathing review from the Sun-Sentinel.  While we wouldn’t be quite as harsh, we agree the show doesn’t seem as fresh and cutting edge (no pun intended) anymore.

Sarah Palin: After praising her daughter and soon-to-be son-in-law for working hard, word comes that new father Levi Johnston has quit his job after a newspaper discovered he wasn’t eligible for the position.  Ah, investigative journalism at its finest!

The Real World: The Brooklyn edition premieres tonight.  Kind of over it.  How ’bout you?

iTunes: Changing their pricing so that songs cost differently depending on how “popular” they are.

Forbes: T’was their turn for yesterday.  Lucky them.

The Atlantic: Wrote a piece speculating on what would happen if The New York Times went out of business and, let us tell you, it ain’t pretty.

SIZZLED OUT: Lindsay Lohan (Samantha Ronson)

STILL SIZZLING: This singer is offering a contest where fans can submit videos to air during her performance at the Grammys.  Will they try it and will they like it?

NOT Sarah Palin!

NOT Sarah Palin!

Kevin Federline: Telling “his side” of his “life with Britney.” What timing!

90210: You can catch Jamie Walters (Ray Pruitt, whose songs were cut from the 90210 DVDs…tear!) on VH1’s new “celebreality” show Confessions of a Teen Idol. But will he perform??

Tori Spelling: The 90210 alum has apparently changed the release date of her second book to coincide with debut of her mom’s memoir. We love it!

Tina Fey: Being “sexed up” by the media, claims Salon. Won’t hurt her one bit, we think.

Gawker: We’re not even going to be able to get jobs at our back-up sites! We need a Plan C stat!

Denis Leary: Says 9/11 conspiracy theories will get some serious play on the new season of Rescue Me. The topic is both fascinating and sensitive. We can’t wait to see how it unfolds!

Tyra Banks: Humble enough to say she’s not a media mogul but not so humble to say she won’t be one some day. How admirable.

Guns N Roses: So the free Dr. Pepper didn’t work out so well, and, man, are they pissed!

Michael Phelps: Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. Thank you, Captain Obvious!

Sean Avery: Trash-talking will get you suspended. Just ask Sean: he called out a rival hockey player for dating his ex, actress Elisha Cuthbert, and now he’s out indefinitely!

Ethan Hawke: Along with other celebs like Ashley Judd, he designed his very own box of condoms to be auctioned off for charity. Beyond weird.

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This new Broadway show has barely started and its already offering tickets at 40 percent off! On the bright side, the previews generated more than $1 million! Maybe it’ll live happier ever after afterall!

Our chances of working for one of these mags are disappearing by the day.

Our chances of working for one of these mags are disappearing by the day. Sigh.

Tina Fey: Is Bristol Palin her newest babysitter?  The offer has been made by Mrs. Palin.  Fey’s response: “I was like, yeah, that’s exactly what 17-year-old Bristol Palin wants to do, at ‘SNL,’ is babysit the toddler of the lady that goofs on her mom.”  We’re just wondering if Bristol will even want to babysit her own toddler.

Redemption Song: American Idol for boozies, strippers and cons.  We kid you not.  Gotta love Fuse.

Obama: Pundits across America are weighing in on last night’s last-ditch effort by Obama to secure American’s vote.  But what about all the people that already voted through absemtee and early ballots?  Lost causes?

Phillies: MLB champs.  Notice how we didn’t say World Series champs.  Semantics, really, but how can you win a world championship when the whole world doesn’t have the opportunity to play?  The MLB is only in America, folks!

Jennifer Hudson: As expected, all the entertainment/gossip mags have Hudson-focused covers.  Curious to see how they sell and which one does the best.

Time Inc.: Laying off up to 600 staffers in the coming weeks.  Now how will we ever get a job there?!

TiVo: Got TiVo?  Now you got Netflix, too.  The two have married.  Applause all around.  Except for us.  We still don’t have TiVo.  Or Netflix.

SIZZLED OUT: Melrose Place

STILL SIZZLING: Which actor has walked the line for the final time?  He’s retiring at age 34!

James Dean or James Franco?

James Dean or James Franco? Doesn't matter; we love them both!

Jeff Probst: Hosting a new show called Live Like You Were Dying.  Except the people really are dying.  That’s not, you know, sad, creepy or weird at all.

Gossip Girl: Meta quote of the episode: “Who watches TV on a TV anyway?”  Ah, the good ol’ days.

Sarah Palin: Are some conservatives only backing her because she’s hot?  Some people think so.

Nicole Richie: Quoted in PEOPLE: “I tell [babydaddy] Joel ‘Even when I’m really mad at you, I could never really hate you because you look like Harlow.”  Now that’s what love and long-lasting relationships are built on!

SNL: The show has experienced a resurgence as of late but what will happen when the election is over?

James Franco: We just watched him in James Dean–the movie, not the person–and now we’re kind of obsessed.  And then to find out how much he values education–he’s going for his masters–well, we just found our dreamboy!

SIZZLED OUT: Liz Smith

STILL SIZZLING: Which actor–who appeared in the closing minutes of the first film–will play a larger role in the Iron Man sequel?

Guess they won't be so close anymore.

Guess they won't be so close anymore.

Sarah Palin: Funny on SNL last night but funny doesn’t make a great vice president, does it?

Obama: Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has endorsed Obama, breaking party lines.  Surprising?

Obama Pt. 2: Also got three media endorsements last week–two of them also quite surprising.  This is the first time the LA Times and the Chicago Tribune have endorsed a Democrat!

Variety: Has a great article on the incestuous relationship between film and television.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles got a surprise full-season pickup.  The bad news: It means Brian Austin Green will still be too busy for a 90210 cameo!

Spamalot: Even Clay Aiken couldn’t save it.  The show will close in January.

SIZZLED OUT: Mad Men

STILL SIZZLING: Which celeb–who was shortchanged in her father’s will not too long ago–is selling her home for nearly 2.4 million?
