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.

When healthy enough, Adam Cook traveled to see his younger brother perform on the Idol stage.

When healthy enough, Adam Cook traveled to see his younger brother perform on the Idol stage.

David Cook: Less than a month after announcing he’d participate in a charity run on his ill brother’s behalf, Cook made another announcement yesterday: his brother passed away after a 10-year battle with brain cancer.  Too sad for words.

TIME: Entertainment figures ranging from Tina Fey to Zac Efron made TIME’s annual list of the 100 most influential people.  Also included: the ladies of The View and Jay Leno.

Jay-Z: According to MTV, the rapper is pleased a recent show demonstrated “racial unity” since it was a joint bill with him, Kelly Clarkson and Third Eye Blind.  We’re pretty sure, though, if he wants it to have an impact, a show like that is going to have to happen more than once…

Robert DeNiro: Did you know his twin sons were born via surrogate?  Quickly learning that lots of celebs have gone that route and SJP is far from first.

SIZZLED OUT: Paula Abdul

STILL SIZZLING: This animated series could make it to the big screen–if anyone finds the time to do it.  Let’s hope it’s not canceled (again) in the meantime!

Jade Goody (1981-2009)

Jade Goody (1981-2009)

Jade Goody: The British reality TV star passed away yesterday after battling cancer for less than a year.  Too sad for words.

Oprah: The big O rarely shares the cover of her magazine, but might be starting a new trend.  After featuring Michelle Obama on the April cover, Oprah will share another one with Ellen DeGeneres.

Bruce Willis: Got married this weekend–with ex-wife Demi Moore and her (hotter and younger) hubby Ashton Kutcher in attendance!  Love that some split families do actually get along!

TV Guide: Back with its own Web site now that they’re no longer affiliated with the still-running TVGuide.com.  This will be quite confusing!

Whoopi Goldberg: Speaking of TV Guide the magazine, Goldberg lashed out at them on an episode of The View last week for writing an unflattering piece on her style of dress.  Love when Whoopi gets feisty!

SIZZLED OUT: Dane Cook

STILL SIZZLING: This couple, 22 years apart in age, got engaged recently after more than 7 years of dating.

Prince Charming and his Sleeping Beauty.  All together now: awwwwwwww!

Prince Charming and his Sleeping Beauty. All together now: awwwwwwww!

Zac Efron: Completely in love with the above picture of him and Vanessa Hudgens.  Very fitting that two of Disney’s biggest stars recreated a major fictional Disney couple for this portrait.  Just beautiful!

The View: In his first-ever appearance on the show, Jimmy Kimmel thought it’d be funny to come out dressed as former co-host Rosie O’Donnell.  Clever but we all know there doesn’t need to be any more fuel added to that fire.  Wonder if Ro will respond on her blog?

The View Pt. 2: But Babs, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, insists she “can never be mad at Rosie.”  Again, wonder if Ro will respond on her blog?

Oprah: Doing a special show this Thursday, alongside Tyra Banks, “dedicated to all the Rihannas of the world.”  Again, should fuel be added to this particular (and personal–as in, just between Rihanna and Chris Brown) fire–or is this a great way to give a very important topic (domestic violence) some much-needed exposure?

TMZ: Head honco Harvey Levin wholeheartedly believes (as if we couldn’t tell this already) that the mainstream media should be covering Rihanna/Chris Brown even more.  Levin, meet Oprah.

Gilmore Girls: If watching it on ABC Family isn’t enough, the entire series is also coming to SOAPNet, one of our favorite channels!

SIZZLED OUT: Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel

STILL SIZZLING: She’s no longer an Idol contestant, but get used to hearing this gal’s voice during every elimination episode.

A thriller of a press conference?

A thriller of a press conference?

Chris Brown: Charged yesterday with two felonies but got the arraignment postponed until April, so no plea was entered.  The attorney on Rihanna’s behalf said she did not wish to prohibit contact between the two.

Chris Brown Pt. 2: Jossip is one of the first outlets we’ve seen do a piece on how Brown’s being treated unfairly/inaccurately by the media.  Totally agree!

The Bachelor: Change of heart or betrayal?  Those the are words PEOPLE is floating around in their new cover story.  Should be a big seller, no?

DWTS: The new season hasn’t even officially started yet and already there’s drama!  Both Jewel, who was injured last week, and the now-injured Nancy O’Dell have dropped out of the competition!  Supposedly their replacements won’t be announced until the premiere Monday but we imagine it’ll leak before then!

Ashlee Simpson: PEOPLE has a clip of her CSI guest-appearance alongside hubby Pete Wentz and it ain’t pretty.  With no effort made to change their looks, it’s hard to believe these two are playing any character other than themselves.

Michael Jackson: So he’s planning a comeback/farewell tour (yeah, we don’t get it either) but all signs point to the fact that Jacko is still wacko.  He’s not even playing in the States!

Robin Williams: At 57 years young, the actor-comedian will have heart valve replacement surgery.  If only laughter truly was the best medicine!

Seinfeld: It’s a yada yada yada reunion!  Jerry Seinfeld and co will appear on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, their first joint TV gig in more than a decade!

The Real World: This is probably the best thing to come out of the show in years.  MTV made a biopic based on Pedro, the season one three cast member who struggled with–and eventually died from–AIDS.

SIZZLED OUT: Sherri Shepherd (The View)

STILL SIZZLING: This funny man recently got engaged.  Think anyone will crash his wedding?

This is the Britney we miss!

This is the Britney we miss!

The Bachelor: The show promised a twist-ending and we got it.  As we’ve been predicting all along, this back-and-forth can’t be good for Jason’s kid!  Just look at all the couples that have failed before!

Britney: The set list for her upcoming tour has been released and we strongly object.  We want more old-school Brit!  Way too much has changed since her last go-round.

24: They may kill a lot of characters but they’re promising not to kill the Earth.  24 is going green!  Pretty sweet, right?

Milk: With an Oscar win behind him, Sean Penn is trying to get the late Harvey Milk’s birthday officially recognized by the state of California.  Yeah, good luck with that.

Brothers and Sisters: Anyone else pissed about the misleading promo for Sunday’s night two-hour episode?  Newsday Verne Gay not only feels your pain, he’s also calling it “a promotional con job of the likes I’ve never seen before, ever, in the history of TV.”  ‘Dem’s fightin’ words, Verne!

Twitter: Did The View cause yesterday’s site outage?  That’s what Gawker wants you to believe.

SIZZLED OUT: Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston (Marley and Me)

STILL SIZZLING: To make his 15 minutes of fame last a little longer, this hair-raising guy just signed a six-figure book deal.
