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.

He can handle terrorists but prison's a different story.

He can handle terrorists but prison's a different story!

Obama: If you name it, they will buy.  Assuming you = Obama.  After he referenced a book about FDR during his 60 Minutes interview, bookstores and buyers are scrambling to find out which book exactly it was.

Obama Pt. 2: Does the First Lady’s body type make you wanna stand up and cheer?  This writer does, giving praise to Michelle’s derriere.

Newsstands: Speaking of butts, should they (as featured on raunchy mags) be prominently displayed on newsstands next to other more “respectable” publications?  What ever happened to the First Amendment?

Theme Songs: How much do they really matter?  Apparently enough to warrant a top-40 countdown.

TiVo: It’s the gift that keeps on giving!  Soon you’ll be able to use it to order pizza!

Kiefer Sutherland: One of the 24 star’s complaints about jail: no smoking.  Oh, the horror!

Lipstick Jungle: We thought it was canceled.  Brooke Shields says no.  Fans send lipstick to network.  In sum: totally bizaarre.

Fox News: They’ve set up a Facebook page.  Totally uncool.

Rihanna: Had 8 singles from on album on the Billboard charts!  Ri-dic!

GQ: Why have a man of the year when you can have MEN of the year?  Leo, Phelps, Obama, and Mad Men’s John Hamm.  Not too shabby.

Mickey Mouse: We’re not sure if this makes us feel young or old.  Mickey turned 80 today!

Seth Rogen: He really likes making pornos.  Zack and Miri was just the tip of the iceberg.  Rogen is working on a new show for Showtime about…making pornos.  Classy, as always.

Dan Lyons: The Newsweek writer is having a hissy fit over the resignation of Yahoo’s CEO.  Apparently Lyons, in an interview just last month, was told that wouldn’t be happening.  It’s called spin, Lyons.  You of all people should know about it.

Robert Murdoch: Ouch!  The media titan is blaming the industry’s decline not on the economy but the suckiness of editors and writers.

Natalee Holloway: The case has been reopened.  Maybe we’ll actually get answers–and closure for the family–this time around.

You want a movie?  Fuggedaboutit!

You want a movie? Fuggedaboutit!

The Simpsons: Will get the honor of a crossword puzzle in The New York Times that’s all about them. You didn’t know 4 across? D’oh!

The Sopranos: Still waiting for a movie? Don’t hold your breath. Be happy with a 33-disc DVD set instead. Yay consolation prizes!

Jason Priestley: We totally agree with you here that it wouldn’t make sense if Brandon was Kelly’s babydaddy.  But how can you say here that you guys “were never bestowed any awards”?  Perhaps you’ve forgotten your two Golden Globe nominations!  That’s right, Jason.  True 90210 fans remember everything!

Dallas: Yes, people do actually still care about this show. How much? Enough to pay $1,000 to meet the stars and then bitch after about what a disaster it was. Bizarre? Yes. But it still doesn’t top the “this was all a dream” finale.

ABC News: In an interesting journalistic choice, ABC News is taking an up-close look at its parent company’s (ABC, d’oh!) decision to “de-gay” Grey’s Anatomy.

Isaiah Washington: Should someone fired from Grey’s Anatomy for a gay scandal of his own really be talking smack about the recent “de-gay”-ing? Isaiah, do you ever learn?

Gossip Girl: That season 3 ratings boost? Gone. The show is steadily slipping. And One Tree Hill is still doing better! Score!

TRL: The series finale is starting to sound more like a reunion and we couldn’t be more excited. Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Nelly and lots of others will make appearances. The show doesn’t air til Sunday, but we’re getting our TiVo ready now!

Nirvana: It’s been 17 years since Nevermind was released. More memorable than the music itself? The cover art of a naked baby in a pool. Well, that boy is–you guessed it!–17 years old now and has re-created the photo.

Elizabeth Banks: Seems like she’s everywhere lately! First W, then Zack and Miri and now Role Models. Banks will try something new next: producing a sci-fi. We’re just as perplexed as you are.

Classic Movies: Chosen by TCM to be put in a DVD set according to genre. And by classic, they also mean old. Hardly any are from the past 20 years.

Twilight: Try Twilight Zone instead! A San Francisco event for the movie was canceled after thousands more fans than expected showed up. The result? Bloody chaos! Good thing we’ve managed to remain completely uninterested in all the hoopla!

Bush: Did he like his depiction in W.? Yes, surprisingly, says portrayer James Brolin.

SIZZLED OUT: Bones

STILL SIZZLING: AOL Television has started its 50 Sexiest Men and Women countdown. These two stars, best known for kicking some serious ass, got the backhanded compliment of being number 5-0 on their respective lists.

The original Zack!

The original Zack!

Zac vs. Zack: It’s a battle of the Zac(k)s this weekend–one real, one fictional.  As much as we love us some HSM, we saw Zach and Miri last night and it was pretty funny.  We have a feeling Efron will still come out on top, though.  (Though we can’t forget about our other favorite Zack: Zack Morris!)

MPAA: It’s become common knowledge now the struggle Zack and Miri faced in trying to get a R rating, instead of NC-17.  You can thank the MPAA for that (and for other weird decisions), whose ratings system turns 40 today.

Sarah Silverman: What’s more awkward than an awkward break up?  Making fun of said break up with your ex on national television. Awkward for them, that is.  Hilarious for us.

Heidi Klum: The supermodel may pull off a super disappearance if a certain Republican wins the election.  Guys, start your protests now.

Fashion Rocks: The annual fashion show/concert benefiting charity won’t happen next year.  And, yes, you can blame the economy.

SIZZLED OUT: Hilarie Burton

STILL SIZZLING: This controversial TV judge failed to make the cut.  His girlfriend of six years just dumped him!

*Note: We’re sizzled out until Monday, 11/3.  Try to hang in there!

How do you prefer your Olsens?

How do you prefer your Olsens?

Jennifer Hudson: A car allegedly connected to the possible kidnapping of Hudson’s nephew has been found.  An unidentified body has been found inside the vehicle, though that detail may change in mere hours.

HSM: Came out on top of the box office, like we knew it would.  The $42 million in sales broke two records: highest ever for a movie musical and for a non-animated G-rated film.

Zack and Miri: Creator Kevin Smith is shocked by how many people think this film is a real porno.  His reply? “Are you retarded? When was the last porno you saw that had ‘porno’ in the title?'”  Hilarious as always. We could make a whole post just filled with quotes from this article.

Radar: And another one bites the dust.  Say goodbye to everyone’s favorite hipster mag.

The Olsen Twins: Planning world domination by building a “true American brand.”  All we’re asking for is a Full House reunion.

TMZ: Claim they’ve reached a peaceful coexistence with the celebrities they harass, um, we mean, cover.  We’ll believe it when the lawsuits stop.

Amy Winehouse: Back in the hospital…for “tests.”  We feel like, sad as it is to say, the whole world is just waiting for her to die and won’t be the least bit surprised when it happens.

OTH: We hoped there’d be smooth sailing ahead for Leyton but with Austin Nichols scheduled to appear in a 10-episode arc, we have a feeling a wedding might be long off.  Tear.  We’ll meet the potential homewrecker in tonight’s episode.

SIZZLED OUT: Supernatural

STILL SIZZLING: Which star is taking her on-screen gig a little too seriously?  She thinks it’s her real job to save things!  Specifically, whales!

Silent Bob isn't staying silent anymore.

Silent Bob isn't staying silent anymore.

Sean Penn: Visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for the second time in two years.  Does a star’s political activities influence whether people pay to see his movies?  We’ll soon find out: his next flick, Milk, comes out in early December.

Brothers & Sisters: After a high-profile search for new character Ryan Walker, the execs have chosen someone with very little credits to his name: Luke Grimes.  We have no idea who he is but a quick Google search shows a 20-something guy with long-ish hair and some stubble.  Is this the next television heartthrob in the making?

Jennifer Hudson: Now that The Secret Life of Bees is in theater, we’ll see if the Idol alum can have 3 great flicks in a row.  And if not, there’s always that music career.

Survivor: Arguably the most successful show of the decade but the flame might extinguish soon.  Ratings are down, the economy sucks and ad execs are being more frugal with their money.  Good times.

Ne-Yo: Plans to star in a “music-driven romance” called Venice Beach.  Can being smooth and infectious in music translate to the big screen?  We’re doubtful.

Kevin Smith: Took to his blog to say how excited he is for Zack and Miri Make a Porno–and that he’s “really fat right now” and plans to lose a ton of weight after press for the movie is done.  Doesn’t he realize his size is one of the things that makes him so endearing and identifiable?

Phil Spector: He faces trial number two for allegedly killing actress Lana Clarkson.  The first trial, which ended in deadlock, lasted 5 months.  Can’t believe he–or Clarkson’s family–have to go through all that again!

Oprah: Available in Spanish for the first time in 22 seasons.  What took so long?!

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.
