Splitsville!

Splitsville!

Megan Fox: Guys everywhere had their hope restored yesterday when news broke that Fox and fiance Brian Austin Green called it quits.  News flash, boys: she still isn’t going to get with you!

The CW: In an unusual move, the netlet gave early pick-ups to 6 of its shows: Gossip Girl, 90210, One Tree Hill, Supernatural, Smallville and ANTM.  That means TeenDramaWhore is very happy!

Liz Smith: The longtime gossip queen has been cut from the New York Post.  At least she still has wowOwow but who knows if that makes any money?

Nickelodeon: After being the front-runner in kids programming for so long, there’s no question now that Disney Channel has come ahead in the race.  But can Nick come back?  We say yes.  Kids and tweens are fickle.  They’ll watch whatever is “good” and “popular.”

Jonas Brothers: Speaking of kids and tweens, their beloved trio will making surprise visits at theatres across the country at screenings of their movie.  Hope medical personnel will be on hand for all the fainting!

Defamer: (via Gawker) has a fun/creepy look at celeb relationships that have gone sour long after the tattoo ink dried.

Twitter: Damn those 140-character limits!  Journ George Stephanopoulous had to explain that he ate potates, not “pot” at Obama-sponsored lunch.

SIZZLED OUT: Jane Fonda

STILL SIZZLING: All this month TMC will pay tribute to this former president who had a lucruative career before going into politics.

Wonder how Diddy's feeling right about now...

Wonder how Diddy's feeling right about now...

Jessica Simpson: This doesn’t happen that often. Simpson said some wise words at her concert last night: “”I feel like in our world today we focus on so many things that are completely pointless.”  No doubt she’s referring to the recent hubbub surrounding her weight.

The View: Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is pregnant again!  This will be her third baby in less than 4 years!  We should be so lucky!

Obama: The Washington Post claims cartoonists are focusing too much on emphasizing the new president’s lips.  Racist or not?  Or just comes with the territory?

The CW: Returning to the listings grid in TV Guide.  In case you actually still need one of those things.

Danity Kane: The Making The Band/Diddy-formed group has completely broken up.  Guess they’re really damaged now!

Superbowl: Just face it: no party you plan or attend will top what the stars have planned for the big day.  We can’t wait til we’re famous!

The Office: After the game, don’t forget to watch the star-studded episode, which is sure to get super ratings.

Forbes: On their Web Celeb 25 list, Perez Hilton comes in a number one for the second year in a row.  How much longer do you think that’ll last?

Twitter: New to the game and don’t know who to follow?  As a companion piece to the above article, Forbes also has a list of the most influential Twitterers.

SIZZLED OUT: Rachael Ray

STILL SIZZLING: This actress, mostly known for the endless aray of spoofs she’s starred in, is getting serious with a former Everwood actor.  They’re engaged!

FOB is peeved and they want you to know about it!

FOB is peeved and they want you to know about it!

Heroes: Someone in the cast desperately wants out.  But Kristin won’t say who!

Fall Out Boy: Making a huge accusation that Blender sensationalized and falsified parts of their February cover story–and using Twitter to air their grievances!

Travis Barker: Accompanied by ex Shanna Moakler as he and DJ AM reunited to play a set in Las Vegas.  On again?  Or just hanging with his babymama?

ABC: Contemplating adding widgets to your television experience.  No idea how they’d do that but that’s not surprising considering we still have trouble with widgets ourselves!

TV Guide: No longer includes The CW in their magazine listings.  WTF?

Iron Man 2: Possible villiain casting: Mickey Rourke, who is in the midst of a comeback thanks to the film The Wrestler.

Jossip: No one could deny how awkward it was watching Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper co-host a New Year’s eve special.  Jossip has followed their example by coming up with some pairings of their own.  Our favorite: Joy Behar and Ann Coulter!

Journalism: People, people!  More than one news organization cannot have an exclusive on the same exact thing–as some sites claimed yesterday about Tori Spelling’s 90210 deal.  Go back to j-school!

Gawker: Has a great picture-based piece on the ridiculousness of Teen Vogue telling kids to buy $200+ bags during a recession.

Israel: We resent the suggestion that the timing of the war in Gaza was a PR move.  Considering we were there when it began last month, we can tell you that’s not true.

He's probably regretting that break-up right about now...

He's probably regretting that break-up right about now...

John Travolta: Posted a statement on wife Kelly Preston’s official site, thanking fans for their condolences and expressing their sadness.  We can’t even begin to imagine what they’re going through.

DWTS: Mario Lopez must be pissed!  His ex (and former dancing partner) Karina Smirnoff is engaged to fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.  What a sordid love triangle!

Twitter: Major password-stealing virus making its way through.  Thankfully, we haven’t been affected so far.  (And you should follow us at @sizzlemaker!)

Facebook: Suing Power.com, a new site that lets users track their various social media accounts in one place, for copyright infringement.  Curious to see how this all plays out…

Broadway: At least 12 shows are closing in the coming weeks, though there’ll be new openings on off-Broadway.  Not the best situation but not the worst, either.

SIZZLED OUT: HBO

STILL SIZZLING: A much-talked about character is rumored to be returning to this hit CW show.

Jennifer Lopez and the only good movie she starred in!

Jennifer Lopez and the only good movie she starred in!

Britney Spears: Comeback kid of the year, says MTV.  Wait, we thought that was Robert Downey, Jr.?

Kate Hudson: Says she wants to be single as long as possible.  Like that’ll ever happen.

Pete Wentz: Wowwwwww.  He revealed way TMI about his (sex) life with Ashlee on (where else?) The Howard Stern Show.

Jennifer Lopez: Blessing us once more with her acting skills.  To be fair, Selena was pretty amazing.

The CW: Screwed over by a change in the Nielsen ratings counting procedures.  They always pick on the little ones, don’t they?

Jessica Alba: Joining Jack Black on the Superbowl ep of The Office.

Usher: Holding a contest to let an under-18 fan shoot his next video.

Ryan Murphy: A show about high school glee clubs doesn’t sound promising but with Murphy (Nip/Tuck) at the helm, we have a little faith.

Jossip: Woah!  Major site redesign with practically no explanation!  So not okay!

SIZZLED OUT: Sean Avery

STILL SIZZLING: Michael Copon, rumored to be taking over the role of Jacob in Twilight, got a big break when he starred on this show–one of our favorites!

One of the best songs ever.  Try to convince us otherwise!

One of the best songs ever. Try to convince us otherwise!

90210: If we dislike the new show show so much, how come we get chills every time we see a promo for its January return?

The CW: Notoriously shut out from awards, just like its predecessor The WB.  So Kristin over at E! Online is holding her own CW-only awards.  Pretty cute.

TV Guide: We don’t get this AT ALL.  TV Guide the magazine and TVGuide.com the web site are now owned by different companies.  So one of our favorite writers, Matt Roush, will no longer be on the site.  WTF?

Eminem: Denying reports that his new album will include a follow-up to one of our favorite songs, Stan.

Tara Reid: Checked into rehab but no word on what she’s there for.

Tommy Hilfiger: Reportedly got married last night.  Most interesting to us: he gave his fiance an 8.2 carat engagement ring!  So how sparkly is the wedding band?!

American Idol: If they cancel their hugeeeeeee charity event, Idol Gives Back, will they lose credibility?  Or will people understand given the economy?

Economy: Who has a clever name for the current recession/depression/doomsday?  The New York Times are looking for it!

Gawker: Can now comment on their blog through your Facebook accounts.  Kudos actually goes to FB, we think.

Rod Blagojevich: Deleted his Facebook account after his arrest–but not before getting slammed with insults from other users.

Rod Balgojevich Pt. 2: The Chicago Tribune has a pretty funny animation based on the governor’s profanity-laded conversations.

John Ritter: Got a really good tribute on last night’s Family Entertainment Awards, 5 years after his death.

SIZZLED OUT: Jonathan Safran Foer (schadenfoer!)

STILL SIZZLING: This musician says he wants to follow in Justin Timberlake’s footsteps.  With his own hit song last summer and writing a hit for another new star, we don’t think he’ll have any problem finding more success.
