Battle of the Blondes Part Deux?

Battle of the Blondes Part Deux?

Daytime Emmys: Unveiled the nominations this week with some very interesting choices–or lack thereof: no noms for The View or soap icon Susan Lucci and very few for Guiding Light which needs all the help it can get these days.  Sniff sniff.

Pink: Confirmed that she and Carey Hart are back together.  Makes us very happy. They just seem like a good fit.

The Hills: Back in the day, we were quite obsessed with the Kristin vs. LC fight over Stephen Colletti.  (For the record, we wanted him with LC!) So it’s quite interesting to hear that Kristin will take Lauren’s place on The Hills.  And yet, we still won’t watch the show…

Jay Leno: Here’s an interesting theory: because not everyone likes the funny man and won’t want to be subjected to him as early as 10pm, more viewers will switch to cable channels.  Don’t see why they just wouldn’t flip to another broadcast channel…

SIZZLED OUT: Wanda Sykes

STILL SIZZLING: This iconic reality show winner is being released from jail after evading income taxes on his prize winnings.

Worthy of praise and scholarly study?

Worthy of praise and scholarly study?

Obama: It was only a matter of time before a political cartoon relating to our new president caused outrage.  Freedom of the press?  Low blow? Undecided how we feel.

Solange: Beyonce’s little sis had a little scare yesterday when she passed out and woke up in the hospital.  She took to her Twitter to tell everyone the problem was just dehydration.  So is this the future of PR?

Oprah: Caught part of an episode today and saw she was communicating with guests via Skype.  So is the future of talk shows?

Oscars: If you’re not into the nominated movies (and believe us, it’s possible!), here are three other reasons to watch: Zac Efron, Miley and Robert Pattison.  Still not convinced?  Yeah, we didn’t think so.

The Hills: One of the shows that will be the subject of panels at this year’s Paley Festival.  The Hills?  Seriously?

MC Hammer: Getting his own reality show on A & E.  Didn’t know he had 5 kids!  But also not really surprised…

Katherine McPhee: In addition to appearing on an upcoming episode of Brothers & Sisters, the former American Idol contestant will do a guest stint on CSI.  Looks like someone has a case of the acting bug!

USA Today: We like this headline–‘Lost’ and ’24’: Simple titles, complex, brilliant shows.

Facebook: A recent uproar about Terms of Service changes may have been quelled but it’s still worth reading what happened and who was behind it.

SIZZLED OUT: Justin Guarini

STILL SIZZLING: This popular former game show host admits he’s not one of its “loyal” viewers.  Guess he doesn’t want to come on down to TV set.

Which do you prefer?

Which do you prefer?

90210: The “competition” with Gossip Girl continues, thanks primarily to the media.  How about we choose neither and go with the original Beverly Hills, 90210 instead!

TCM: Beyond moving tribute to all the wonderful actors we lost this year.

The Hills: They’re cursing us with syndication.  Lord help us!

Obama: Last month we showed you what Michelle might wear to the inauguration. Now we’ve got some options for the big man himself!

SIZZLED OUT: One Tree Hill (Felix)

STILL SIZZLING: Important announcement tomorrow!

No longer a (wannabe) journalist

No longer a (wannabe) journalist

Obama: His presidency may pose the biggest challenge to political cartooning.  The satirists are fretting about how to depict him without being too offensive.  But isn’t offensiveness part of the point?

Lydia Hearst: The publishing heiress has resigned from her New York Post column on grounds that her editor published something with her name that she, in fact, did not write.  Who knew the socialite had such morals?

90210: Back with new episodes tonight…and another interracial couple?  So it seems.

Jonas Bros.: Coming to a theater near you in Walter the Farting Dog.  We just threw up a little.

The Hills: We rarely write about this show because we think it kills brain cells, but we must applaud David Letterman for cleverly attacking L.C. and co. on his show last night.

Hairspray: A sequel is in the works but John Travolta says he’s unlikely to reprise his cross-dressing role.  We’re not thrilled with the idea of a sequel but we feel better about it knowing Travolta won’t be a part of it.

Janet Jackson: Her tour is really not going well.  After canceling a string of dates due to migraines, her opening act LL Cool J (though we like to spell it out: Ladies Love Cool James) has dropped out.  Refund, please.

Zac Efron: Does success in HSM mean success in all other things?  That’s what the execs of the Footloose remake are hoping.  The producion dates have been moved up following Zac’s mega-box office receipts with HSM 3.

HSM 3 IS COMING!

HSM 3 IS COMING!

Hugh Hefner and The Girls Next Door: Holly and company have broken up with the notorious playboy.  One of their gripes: 82-year-old Hugh wouldn’t get married or have kids with them.  Shocking considering he’s been so committed in the past.

Brooke Hogan: Hogan has declined an invitation to pose nude for Playboy–though she may in the future.  After all her family’s troubles, shouldn’t her goal be to not attract attention?

Brangelina: Brad likes Angelina.  Angelina likes Brad.  They’ve proven that much already.  Do we really need to see a picture of Angie breastfeeding–taken by Pitt–to realize this?  The creepiness factor just went up a notch.

The Hills Take New York: L.C. pal Whitney Port is fleeing sunny California for the big bad city of New York–and a comfy gig with Diane von Furstenberg. If only it were that easy–or fake–for the rest of us!

HSM 3: Midnight movie tickets have gone sale.  Do you have yours yet?

Nick Jonas: The only thing stopping Mr. Flatiron from zooming around on his new motorcycle?  The proper license.  Let the betting begin: how long before he has his first crash?

STILL SIZZLING: Which wannabe starlet says the pending assualt charges (from an altercation with another wannabe) against her have “destroyed” her family?  As they say, that’s the price of fame!
