Girl Becomes Woman

Girl Becomes Woman

ANTM: Video of the so-called stampede at this weekend’s New York audition left us speechless.  Can you imagine that many people running–in heels?!

Lindsay Lohan: First there was an arrest warrant.  Then there was a misunderstanding.  Is anything ever straight forward with this girl?  (Insert your own bisexual joke here.)

Lindsay Lohan Pt. 2: Gawker has supposedly exposed her Twitter account.  Interesting to read in light of the above.

Charlie Sheen: Named his twin boys Max and Bob.  That’s it?  Really?  Sure you’re a celeb, Charlie?

Josh Schwartz: The mastermind behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl has developed a web-only series called Rockville CA.  If his track record is any indication, it’ll probably be underappreciated amazingness.

Nickelodeon: Say goodbye to The N and hello to TeeNick.  And if you have youngins, Noggin will change to Nick Jr.  Maybe rebranding will help it kick some Disney butt?

Anna Chlumsky: Don’t recognize the name?  Then maybe you’ve forgotten the awesomeness that was My Girl and My Girl 2.  Chlumsky is returning to the airwaves via a CBS pilot.  It’s still the year of the comeback, isn’t it?

Sizzlemaker: Working on a new Twitter-related project.  Get excited!

SIZZLED OUT: Heathers

STILL SIZZLING: This buff actor, who is trying to change his image with a series of kid-friendly films, admitted he took steroids in college.

As we mentioned last month, we’ve been hard at work on a sister site.

That’s because all that content can now be found on TeenDramaWhore.com!

TeenDramaWhore is your one-stop-shop for all your teen drama needs.  What’s going to happen on Gossip Girl?  Is The O.C. still on TV anywhere?  And how does the new 90210 compare to the original?  You don’t have to go to different sites for each of your favorite shows.  Everything from news, spoilers, polls and original content can be found on this awesome new site.

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?

Rockin' out and looking pretty while doing it!

Rockin' out and looking pretty while doing it!

David Cook: Our favorite Idol EVER will be performing on SNL tomorrow night.  Meeting him last spring will forever rank as one of our all-time best days.

John McCain: Stealing Cook’s thunder and also appearing on SNL.  Psht.

Shanna Moakler: Travis Barker’s ex has given her first interview since finding out about his plane crash.  Last time she spoke, though, Travis said not to believe her.  So what will it be this time?  Fact or fiction?

Melrose Place: Despite persistent rumors, if the remake happens, it probably won’t be aided by current mega-creators Mark Schwahn (One Tree Hill) and Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Gossip Girl).  And thank god.  We want a seventh season of OTH, not a rehashing of a show that wasn’t very good to begin with.

Spider-Man 4: The flick, set to be released in 2011, has found itself a writer.  A Pulitizer award-winning, Julliard-trained one at that.  But we have to wonder: why are movies from the same series being written by different people?  What ever happened to consistency?

Newsday: Our hometown newspaper appears to be the latest victim of the revived Anthrax hoax.  Really, people, this is SO not funny.

Hugh Hefner: In a new biography–aptly titled Mr. Playboy–the media mogul’s life is given the up-close-and-personal treatment.  Silly us, we thought that’s been done before.  Many, many times before.

Will the economy stop the monster that is Facebook?

Will the economy stop the monster that is Facebook?

Britney: The courts have named her dad “permanent conservator” of her affairs and her estate. Though apparently permanent doesn’t actually mean permanent. It’s just til another legal process begins.

MTV: MTV is returning to its roots in a 21st century way: all music, all the time, all on the web. We’ll see how long this lasts.

Republicans: Inherently funnier or just easier to make fun of? McCain and company have been punchlines seven times more than the Obama folks on late-night TV.

Willa Holland: Loved her on The O.C. and we wish some of that bitchiness came through on Gossip Girl. Two more episodes to wow us, Willa.

Facebook: Could hire its 1,000th employee or could start massive layoffs. Undoubtedly will still define a generation and perhaps that’s really all that matters.

Oscars: Might the Best Picture category be a showdown between The Dark Knight and Wall-E? Might this be premature since the awards won’t be handed out til February? Yes and yes.

Jennifer Hudson: Speaking of showdowns, people are already speculating which celebrity magazine will better cover the tragedy. Sad excuse to make money or legitimately just doing their job?

Christian Science Monitor: Going out of print, effective early spring 2009. Still available on the web, though. What other papers will follow?

The View: “Don’t believe anything the blogs are saying,” said co-host Sherri Shepherd. We’re insulted!

SIZZLED OUT: Dustin Milligan (90210)

STILL SIZZLING: They say history repeats itself, especially on television. Case-in-point: This 90s favorite is being retooled to add its residence to next year’s fall schedule.

A, um, glimpse into Zack and Miri's pornography adventure.

A, um, glimpse into Zack and Miri's pornography adventure.

CNN: A comedy show on CNN?  It’s coming, and will be hosted by D.L. Hughley.  Says the network: “When you watch as much news as our audience does, there comes a time you just want to stop and laugh.”  As they say, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.  Pretty true considering the current state of our country.  Go for the giggles!

Seth Rogen: His new flick–Zack and Miri Make a Porno–is running into some marketing problems.  Apparently a lot of places don’t want to advertise something so risque.  That only makes us want to see it more!

Project Runway: Picked its fifth winner last night.  This is getting old.

World Series: Rapidly approaching but the end might be getting farther.  MLB says the sixth game might be delayed due to Obama’s purchase of air time.

CW: Stepping up their game with a whole slew of guest stars for November sweeps–including Perez Hilton?!

The WB: Our new favorite site.  Watch full episodes of OTH, Everwood, The O.C., Smallville, Friends.  The lists gone on and on!  You MUST check it out!

More Crashes: Sadly, two more accidents happened this week.  Both Blake Lively’s dad and Gale Harold (of Desperate Housewives) were both injured in car wrecks.

Kanye West: What’s a good way to demonstrate the raw, natural quality your new album?  If you’re Kanye, that means having 30-plus completely naked women sitting on stage as the album plays.  We think the connection is a bit of a stretch.

The original cast of 90210!

The original cast of 90210!

Entourage: Watched it for the first time this week.  Loved it.  Now how the hell do we catch up?!

90210: CBS, which owns the rights to the original (and the only as far as we’re concerned) 90210, has partnered with YouTube to show full episodes on-line.  Though only the first 5 of season one are available right now, it’s still better than the crappy imitation on the CW.

Danielle Fishel: The Dish host says every time she leaves her house, fans call her Topanga.  Know what that means?  Time for a Boy Meets World reunion!

HSM: PEOPLE has put out a special issue in anticipation of HSM 3.  Buy! Buy! Buy!

Rachel Bilson: Still with Hayden Christensen.  Can’t say we blame her but I guess that means no happy ending for Summer and Seth after all.
