The subject of a new movie?

The subject of a new movie?

Beyonce: Subject to a “hoax” yesterday when a recording surfaced–on the Howard Stern Show, no less–reportedly of B singing quite poorly.  But her camp quickly denied it was real–and claimed it was great publicity!

Tom Cruise: Pays writers what for many of us would be a year’s salary just to retool scripts of movies he’s considering.  Where do we sign up?

Elizabeth Banks: The Zack and Miri actress will star in “a workplace comedy” called “Forever 21” but no word yet if it’s related to the clothing store.  Would be kind of weird if it isn’t, though, right?

Beauty & the Beast: Our favorite Disney movie is just the latest classic fairytale to be remade.  HSM’s Vanessa Hudgens will star in a modern retelling simply named “Beastly.”  Let’s hope it’s better than all the Cinderella re-dos.

Daily Beast: Has a short photo gallery on how shows hides actresses’ pregnancies.  Timely because of the Pompeo news.

Maureen Dowd: Love the ending to Dowd’s latest New York Times column about Twitter.  We think she’s only dissing it because everyone likes it.  Psht.

SIZZLED OUT: Fred Segal

STILL SIZZLING: This athlete who has been accused of domestic abuse in the past weighed in on the Chris Brown-Rihanna situation, saying that Brown is a “baby'” who can’t handle his emotions.

Will he get America's vote?

Will he get America's vote?

American Idol: The New York Times wrote the best piece we’ve seen yet exploring the possibility that the show might end up with its first gay Idol–Adam Lambert.  The world can definitely handle that, no?

Phil Spector: In trial number two, the former go-to music producer was convicted of second degree murder.  He and his wacky hair will undoubtedly face jail time when he’s sentenced in May.

Mel Gibson: News that his wife filed for divorce isn’t that surprising.  What is is that they’ve been separated for three years.  Pretty sure they both vacationed with Britney last spring, though.  Maybe we’re wrong?

Zac Efron: Probably doesn’t realize it yet but he put his foot in his mouth twice in one interview with GQ.  First Efron slammed celebs who drink and hook up publicly, then he vowed not to get married til 30, “if ever.”  And how does Vanessa feel about that?

Reality TV: Here’s a short, interesting piece on lawsuits that result from reality shows.  Considering the lengthy contract we signed for Wheel of Fortune (and that was just a little game show!), we’re surprised suits like these are even possible!

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This network is planning an “anti-makeover” reality show.  Instead of figuring out what that means, can’t they just go back to I Love Lucy repeats?

At least he LOOKS funny!

At least he LOOKS funny!

Natasha Richardson: In critical condition after a skiing accident.  Our favorite Natasha movie: The Parent Trap!  (Yes, the one with Lindsay Lohan.  Don’t judge!)

Obama: Going on The Tonight Show Thursday for the first time since he became president.  Good way to reach the masses or not the place for a head-of-state?

Zac Efron: Took some VERY scandalous photos for Interview Magazine.  What did Vanessa have to say about this?!

DJ AM: Seeking $20 million in damages for injuries, physical and otherwise, in the September plane crash with Travis Barker. Can’t say we blame him but throwing money at a problem doesn’t exactly fix it.

Don Imus: The controversial but very successful radio talk show host announced yesterday that he has prostate cancer.  Ironically, he’s spent a great deal of his life working with cancer patients, especially children.

Fall Out Boy: Bringing 50 Cent on tour with them.  Something tells us they don’t quite appeal to exactly the same audience…

MTV: Tapped Andy Samberg to host May’s movie awards.  Not necessarily a bad choice but we never really found his style of funny, well, funny.

SIZZLED OUT: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

STILL SIZZLING: This niche channel is changing its name–ever so slightly–in hopes that’ll become “less geeky.”  Yeah, good luck with that!

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.

Does this look like a lawyer to you?

Does this look like a lawyer to you?

Heath Ledger: His family plans on giving his Golden Globe trophy to daughter Matilda.  Rightfully so!

Slumdog Millionaire: One of the reasons ABC is considering bringing the hit show back.  Been there, done that?  We’re kind of over it…

Vanessa Hudgens: Now that HSM is long over (sniff sniff), Hudgens is trying to piggyback on to another series…Twilight.  What ever happened to ‘breaking free’?

Hilary Duff: Signed a development deal with NBC back in November and now actually has something to show for it.  Barely Legal will take on a whole new meaning!

NBC: Creating a panel of “leading women” (which apparently includes Tori Spelling) to help advertisers better market to females.

Mariska Hargitay: Word broke late yesterday that the Law & Order star has a “partially collapsed lung”…and it won’t impact her TV commitments one bit.  Surprising.  Collapsed lung sounds serious, no?

Til’ Death: Hasn’t died.  Who knew?!  Better question: who cares?

The Sopranos: 10-year anniversary.  Again, who knew?!  We feel old. (And the most important Soprano, James Gandolfini, of all has a new gig: Broadway!)

Shaquille O’Neal: Mentioned on his Twitter feed that he’s getting a doctorate in “human resource development.”  One more time, all together now: WHO KNEW?!

TMZ: You know something needs to be changed in the television industry when TMZ TV is the only show that had 52 weeks of original programming in 2008.

SIZZLED OUT: Charlotte Church

STILL SIZZLING: We’re headed to LA tomorrow to tape an appearance on this game show.  Good thing we know the alphabet!

We want a reunion!

We want a reunion!

Jennifer Aniston: Says her GQ photo spread wasn’t to “make any kind of statement.” She’s lying, and we all know it but it’s okay because the statement was much-needed.

HSM: Disney won’t appreciate this: Zac and Vanessa taking pics with fans in what appears to be a sex shop!

Pete Wentz: Wrote on his blog that he doesn’t “want to go down that road” of selling Bronx’s baby pictures.  We have a feeling that will change eventually.

Hugh Jackman: Having a bittersweet month: deemed Sexiest Man Alive, Australia fails and now named the host of the Oscars.  Still a pretty good life overall, no?

Hugh Jackman Pt. 2: So this pretty much guarantees that Australia won’t get any Oscar nods.  They wouldn’t have a host whose movie is in contention, right?!

Lauren Graham: Our favorite fast talker/Gilmore Girl is coming back to primetime!  An untitled show is in the works on ABC.  Would love to see an Alexis Bledel cameo!

Laurence Fishbourne: Predictions of a rise in black actors on TV (thanks to Obama’s win) will get its first test this week as Fishbourne joins the cast of CSI.

Showtime: We think this will be a disaster but we know they don’t care what we think (but you do!  Thanks, guys!)  The cable channel is launching a show called “Way Out” where cameras film closeted gays telling the truth to their families.

Andy Samberg: Releasing an album with the rest of the Lonely Island boys from SNL.  We just don’t get the appeal.  Who wants to explain it to us?

Obama: Among the stars and musical guests expected at inauguration events:  Anne Hathaway, Sting, Tim Robbins, Ron Howard and Spike Lee.

DreamWorks Animation: Planning Madagascar 3 and movies in 3-D.

Newspapers: Will not be bailed out by the government.  For your First Amendment rights and ours, that is a good thing!

NYT: Would a merger with Google be the answer to their financial problems?  Only if you’re willing to throw away family history.

Does the show need to save itself?

Does the show need to save itself?

Jennifer Hudson: The actress/singer, who we wrote about earlier this week, has lost both her mother and brother today in a double homicide.  Her nephew is still missing and the suspect, supposedly the boy’s father, is in custody.  More details will be released tomorrow.  Beyond tragic.

Marc Anthony: Says his life with J. Lo is “designed around the twins.”  Isn’t that what it’s supposed to be when you have kids?!  And, Mark, you should know that by now considering you also have kids with your ex-wife!

Heroes: Critics are calling each other out on being too hard (or soft) on the show.  With such a stellar reputation, is it fair to say the show’s gone downhill?  Every show does reach its peak eventually…

World Series: Well, some people are watching this year’s lackluster match-up.  (Yankees, we miss you!)  Despite horrible ratings predictions, the game beat all other programming on Wednesday night.  Still, it was down 15 percent from last year, so the possibility of this being the lowest-rated series of all time is still there.  Sigh.

Tim McGraw: One nice thing about this year’s World Series is that it lets McGraw honor his father, Tug, who won the first and only series for the Phillies in 1980.

Vanessa Hudgens: Says BF/co-star Zac Efron is “a good kisser.”  What we’ve all been dying to know or TMI?

Obama: Endorsed by another former member of Bush’s administration: Scott McCellan.  Hardly surprising since the ex-press secretary published a tell-all earlier this year about the White House’s deception under George W.

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Humorists rejoice!  The show will be back…in 2009.  Happy waiting!

Palin: Want a high-paying job?  Just sign up to be Palin’s traveling make-up artist.  For two weeks, she was the highest paid staffer of the whole campaign!

30 Rock: Things to look forward to when the show returns this Thursday: cameos from Oprah, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Martin, Megan Mullally and the list goes on.  Maybe we should start watching.
