American Idol winner Fantasia will play herself in a Lifetime movie.  The made-for-TV movie will be based off of Fantasia's biography, Life is not a Fairytale.

A few years ago my friend Melissa (henceforth known as M. Middy) and I created a drinking game based around Lifetime movies.  The idea was that if you could correctly predict upcoming events or plot points, you had to take a shot.  Because Lifetime movies are highly predictable, M. Middy and I inevitably ended up five sheets to the wind.  Even though there's really no guesswork involved in the Fantasia story thanks to the media blitz that is American Idol, that is in no way going to stop me from playing the Lifetime Drinking Game ™.  And I'll be more than five sheets to the wind.

Additionally, Dwayne Wayne from A Different World is going to play one of Fantasia's parents!  Awesome!

Somewhere in hell, Satan is building a snowman.

The Supreme Court has ruled that Anna Nicole Smith may pursue part of her late husband's $1.6 billion fortune

Wow, I never saw that one coming – although, to be fair, I didn't think a court that hears only a few cases a year would ever take an Anna Nicole Smith case.  How wrong I was!

It is being reported by the Associated Press that Rosie O'Donnell will replace Meredith Viera on The View.  It is said that it will be announced on today's show and is supposed to be a huge surprise. 

Oh man, I hope this is true!  Couldn't you just see Star Jones and Rosie at each other's throats while Joy Behar cackles in the background?  Rosie would probably piss Barbara Walters off too.  And we all know Rosie's not as nice in real life as she was on her own talk show…veeeerrryyyyy interesting indeed.

The best movie ever.

The NYT crossword puzzle and Jon Stewart?  This is quite possibly the awesomest thing to happen to American cinema.  Ever.  And I. Can't. Wait.

World’s Most Beautiful 2006 – According to People

Did any of you catch the cover of People magazine's annual "Most Beautiful People" issue on Good Morning America?  I have to admit, I was kind of bored.  Angelina is on the cover (I know she does a lot of humanitarian work which makes her gorgeous inside and out, but it was such a predictable, tired choice, and I am just so over her) and it was so dull I actually yawned.  Search as might, I couldn't find a picture of it for you, so you'll just have to imagine Angelina in a black shirt on a white background.  And then you can be as bored as I am.

Interestingly, though, the magazine has increased its number of beautiful from 50 to 100.

Click on the thumbsnails below for some more of People's most beautiful.  James Blunt?  Really?





Jessica Alba's hair is so "I just stuck my finger in the electrical outlet" chic!  Sadly, even on her worst day (and with that hair) she's still more beautiful than most people could ever hope to be.

Jessica keeps her mouth shut…for now.

simpson.jpgThere have been reports that Jessica Simpson turned down the cover of Vanity Fair magazine because she would have been required to talk about her split from Nick Lachey.  Given his tell-all interview to Rolling Stone, these latest rumors make it seem that Simpson is the classier of the two.  However, I see this less as taking the moral high road and more of a timing-isn't-right situation.  Let's not forget who her pimp…er, father is!  I'm confident that Papa Joe is going to push this story a week before Simpson's album is released.  In the music industry, timing is everything…and publicizing her side of the story right before her album drops would practially guarantee huge sales.  Can't wait to hear what she has to say!
