Kanye with his "baby sis"

Rihanna: Most publications are reporting, based on “sources,” that she was indeed the victim of Chris Brown’s alleged assault.  (The first to name her, perhaps unethically, was the Los Angeles Times.)  As such, PEOPLE has an article on Kanye West’s concern for Rihanna: he’s “devastated” and would do “any and everything to help her.”  He also says he thinks RiRi could be “the greatest artist of all time.”  That’s a little much, Kanye.  You can stop now.

Obama: The Mrs. will be only the second First Lady in history to be featured on the cover of Vogue.  The first: Hillary Clinton.  We would’ve guessed Jackie O!

Obama Pt. 2: Gave the Huffington Post the honor of being the first online publication to be called upon in a White House news conference.  Will SIZZLE be next?  (Hey, we can dream, can’t we?!)

Grey’s Anatomy: Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are as good as gone.  Apparently it’s just a matter of “when.”

Adam Sandler: If this doesn’t mean hilarity, we don’t know what does.  Sandler will star alongside Chris Rock, Kevin James, Rob Schneider and David Spade in a yet-to-be-titled movie.  It’s gotta be funny, right?

Queen Latifah: Not best known for her singing but the girl does have a voice. She’ll prove it later this month when shes sings  the classic “I’ll Be Seeing You” at the Oscars.

Future TV: A new report argues that, in the future, we’ll have the capability of watching TV through contact lenses.  Tattoos that allow us to feel the character’s emotions may also be possible. Sounds bizarre.  And incredibly intriguing!

My Network TV: In its own futuristic move, network is planning to stop being, well, a network.  Instead it will just have two hours of syndicated programming each week night.  The rest will likely be paid programing a la infomercials.  As long as it includes ShamWow, we’re in!

Sports Illustrated: If the cover model (Bar Refaeli) for the Swimsuit issue is going to pull her bottoms down, couldn’t they at least make sure she didn’t have any tan lines? Or is that supposed to be hot or something?

Celeb Mags: No wonder we can’t get hired!  The grocery line staples are suffering from major losses right now.  Not that we didn’t already know that.  And not that we wanted to work for tabloids, anyway.  PEOPLE (our dream job!) was the only mag to grow!!!!

SIZZLED OUT: Nick Cannon (Mariah Carey)

STILL SIZZLING: A first-time survey by Forbes ranked this actor, known for his sitcom and movie blockbusters, as “Hollywood’s most valuable,” meaning he is the best at “ensuring the financial success of film projects.”

Idol's new judge is getting married!

Idol's new judge is getting married!

American Idol: Back tonight.  Will you be watching?

American Idol Pt. 2: New judge Kara DioGuardi announced today that she’s engaged.  Randy Jackson is the only other married judge currently on the show.

American Idol Pt. 3: Yes!  David Cook and Kimberly Caldwell broke up!  This means we still have a chance!

Jennifer Garner: We have a name for daughter number two.  And we don’t like it one bit.

Howie Mandel: In and out of the hospital for an “irregular heartbeat.”  Maybe Deal or No Deal is just too exciting for him?

Prison Break: As expected, the show won’t be back next year.  We all can admit the show has run its course.  That said, we have no idea how it’ll end! And why do they still call it canceled when the shows execs and actors even say they don’t want to continue?  Mutual decision, people!  Canceled does not convey that!

Josh Holloway: The Lost star told PEOPLE some pretty disturbing details about he and his wife being held at gunpoint in 2005.  Never want to imagine what that’s like.

Allison Sweeney: Life just got even busier for The Biggest Loser host and longtime Days of Our Lives star: she gave birth to another child!

As The World Turns: If you missed yesterday’s show, you missed a lot. Gay characters Luke and Noah, who caused a firestorm when they kissed on the show more than than a year ago, finally had sex.  Of course nothing more than shirtless making out was shown but it’s still a big step forward.

Vogue: Insiders are speculating that putting Blake Lively on the February cover is a sign of how bad things are for the mag.  Not sure we get it, but whatevs.

Facebook: It’ll take another year but the social network could outpower MySpace.

Travolta and son Jett in an undated photo

Travolta and son Jett in an undated photo

John Travolta: His only son with wife Kelly Preston died today at the age of 16.  A cause of death has not yet been determined.  The family was vacationing in the Bahamas.  Tragic.

Katy Perry: No longer with Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, according to PEOPLE.  Maybe she’ll kiss a girl next?

Slumdog Millionaire: Finally saw it.  Pretty good, but don’t see why it’s been named again and again the best of ’08.

The Reader: Incredibly moving.  Adding the book to our reading list.  You should, too!

EW: Even with today’s double feature, we still haven’t finished seeing all of 2008’s big pictures.  And yet entertainment Weekly is already scoping out the upcoming biggies for 2009.  We’ve got some work to do…

Ben Lyons: Everyone’s dissing him and his reviews but we ask this: are there any genuinely good and objective critics out there still?

Michael Cera: May play Gilligan in a big screen adaptation of Gilligan’s Island.  Don’t know about you but we like our Cera in quirky rom coms only, thankyouverymuch.

Vogue: Has the iconic fashion mag become “stale and predictable”?  The New York Times thinks so.  We’ve never been and never will be an Anna Wintour fan, anyway.

STILL SIZZLING: Despite protesting in a recent major interview that he’s single, this guy has been seen around town with a new lady.  But what will his ex say?

SIZZLED OUT: Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthony

There goes our future...

There goes our future...

Mash-Ups: We are loving the mash-ups of rap songs and children’s programs.  Some combinations: Spongebob and Eminem, Family Guy and Akon, Barney and Soulja Boy, etc. Pretty hysterical.

Kanye West: Forget music.  Kanye is switching gears (or industries) and looking for an internship in the fashion world.  Something tells us he won’t like getting coffee for the higher-ups, but we’ll let him figure that out all on his own.

Viacom: Laid off a whopping 850 people today at MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, Comedy Central and other subsidiaries.  Not a good day.

MTV: Holy crap!  Long-time correspondent John Norris is supposedly one of the fired employees!  What is the world coming to?!

NBC: And the ax continues to fall.  500 employees cut.

Eliot Spitzer: Don’t count the former gov down and out.  He’s been hired by Slate to write a column on goverment regulation.  To all wondering, this does not include prostitution.

The Daily Beast: Great piece on why Gwyneth Paltrow’s new site (which goes by the oh-so-attractive name GOOP) is a big mistake.

Bratz: Victory for Barbie collections everywhere!  A judge has ordered production on Bratz dolls to cease immediately (and for stores to send back their stock!) since the (ugly) dolls were conceived by a dude who worked for Mattel at the time.  Ah, sweet revenge!

Sundance: No less than 3 journalism/media films in the mix.  We’re dying to see The September Issue, which follows Anna Wintour and the production of Vogue’s September issue.

Chicago Magazine: Has a really interesting article on Amy Jacobson, the news reporter fired for “misconduct” when she tried to interview Craig Steib, whose wife remains missing.

For Ro's sake, maybe history should repeat itself!

For Ro's sake, maybe history should repeat itself!

EW: A non-Twilight cover!  Yes!  Jennifer Aniston in its place.  We can deal.  Best part, though: Aniston compares Vogue to a tabloid for fixating its story on her and Brangelina!

Grammys: Nominations are out.  Leading the pack are Lil Wayne and Coldplay, two artists we don’t care for.  Guess that means we have bad taste?

Oprah: Surprise, surprise.  O is bringing her show to D.C. for Obama’s inaugeration.

Obama: Speaking of the inaugeration, what will the Mrs. wear?  There’s some sketches floating around.  They’re not half-bad!

Broadway: Grease is closing.  We never got a chance to see it.  Oh, well.

Broadway Pt. 2: The Flintstones are (maybe) coming!  Will this be Rosie O’Donnell’s next gig?

Neve Campbell: Coming back to primetime as one-half of an interracial couple on a new series.  Modern times call for modern shows!

The Apprentice: Why can’t anyone say ‘you’re fired!’ to Donald Trump?  It would really help us all.  Instead, NBC is planning to air each episode of the new season in two-hour installments.

TV Academy Hall of Fame: Bea Arthur is being inducted!  We do love our Golden Girls!

Luke Wilson: Is he really on Twitter?  Time will tell, we suppose.

The Real World: The subject of a special panel at the Paley Center for Media.  Though this is embarrassing to admit, we really wish we could go!
