Going all politico on us. If only we actually asked for it.

Going all politico on us. If only we actually asked for it.

Jennifer Hudson: Established a foundation in memory of her slain relatives to help other families who’ve lost loved ones to violent crimes.  Her speedy actions only help underscore the lessons from the past week: There is no time to waste.  Life is short.  Seize the day.

The View: Put a presidential spin on Halloween costumes this year.  And, yes, this means they all cross-dressed.

Kid Rock: Finally, a celeb who doesn’t want to shove his politics down your throat!  Who is the rapper/rocker/country singer voting for?  He’s not saying because IT DOESN’T MATTER.  Amen.

Joe the Plumber: Sort of following in Kid Rock’s footsteps.  Trying to make his 15 minutes of fame last a little longer with…a country music career?  Yeah, good luck with that.

John Mayer: Definitely not following in Kid Rock’s footsteps.  Makes a surprisingly well-written case for Obama.  Still, we guarantee you this actually cost the presidential candidate some votes.

Forbes: Compiled a part-creepy, part-sad, part-surprising list of the top-earning deceased stars.  Heath Ledger ranks third.  We wish that was a good thing.

Hip-Hop Stars: Should they reduce the bling exposure while the economy is in the crapper?  The Huffington Post thinks so.

MLB: Is there a problem with the World Series?  Besides, we mean, not actually being open to the entire world.  Yes, if you consider the poor timing of the games, the team monopolies and the fixation on revenue.

Iron Man: Robert Downey Jr. hasn’t even begun filming the sequel yet and he’s already signed on for film number 3.

SIZZLED OUT: Joaquin Phoenix

STILL SIZZLING: Which veejay turned dramatic actress will return for TRL’s farewell next month?

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.

Once a strange family, always a strange family.

Once a strange family, always a strange family.

The Spellings: Randy says late father Aaron would love the new 90210.  Candy was named woman of the year.  What planet are they living on?!

W: Looks like Bush even fails at the box office.  Life imitating art?

Red Sox: Not going to the World Series.  Guess this year wasn’t a total loss for the Yanks!

Matt Damon: Coming back for another Bourne installment.  Does it ever get old?

HSM: We’re only days away from the new movie!  Yesssss!

Faith Hill: 41 and on the cover of SHAPE in a bikini.  Good for her!

Lil’ Wayne: Will become a dad in mere “days.”  Who even knew he was married?  That’s right; he’s probably not.

SIZZLED OUT: Tori Spelling

STILL SIZZLING: Which famous gossip columnist just turned 85 and still manages to scoop us all?

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.
