I didn't actually watch the show, though I did happen to catch a glimpse of K-Fed getting pwned after watching Heroes (!!!), and it was funny. I must admit, as much as I dislike the WWE now, I'm happy for their press coverage if only for the slight hope that it will turn people to other, much better companies. WWE ain't the only game in town, and it's sad that most people associate wrestling with the sensationalistic crap that WWE puts out.
James Blunt just can’t stick to one beautiful woman. The singer has reportedly split from his girlfriend of several months, model Petra Nemcova, over his inability to remain faithful.
James, 32, reportedly cheated on 27-year-old Petra with several women, including Australian TV personality, Tania Zaetta. According to a source for British newspaper, Mail on Sunday, "Rumors got back to Petra that James had been partying with loads of gorgeous girls in Ibiza over the summer. They had a huge row during London Fashion Week last month and now it is all over."

The role marks Hayek's first appearance in a network television series. Her first guest starring appearance will be in the "Ugly Betty" episode "Trust, Lust, and Must," airing Thursday, November 2 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. She'll appear in three more episodes throughout the month of November.
Hayek will play Sofia Reyes, a newcomer to the Mode scene who will leave a lasting impression on Daniel Meade (Eric Mabius) and Betty Suarez (America Ferrera).
Christopher Gorham is out of "Practice" and into "Betty." The former "Out of Practice" star is about to launch an open-ended, multi-episode guest stint on ABC's "Ugly Betty." His first appearance as Henry, an oblivious accountant who develops an interest in Betty, is scheduled for next week. But his first big episode arrives around Halloween, a holiday the fashion-challenged Betty was born to embrace.
This is my favorite new show of the season by far. I can't wait for Salma's episodes and for her to get a love interest!
Rapper Fabolous was shot early Tuesday as he stood at a Manhattan parking garage, spurring a sequence of events that left him both hospitalized in stable condition and under arrest, police said.
The rapper, whose legal name is John Jackson, was shot once in the thigh when a male with a gun approached him and three others and opened fire, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Wysokowski said.
The four jumped into a vehicle and fled, attracting the attention of police. Officers stopped them and discovered two guns in the vehicle, both of which were apparently unlicensed, Wysokowski said. All four men were arrested, and charges were pending.

I've been seeing a few things around here about Jenna Fischer, of The Office and this is an article she wrote for Esquire Magazine.
10 Things You Don't Know About Women By Jenna Fischer
1. If we run into your ex-girlfriend in public, the first thing you should do is put your arm around us. And if we have to introduce ourselves, you are in big trouble.
2. When you tell us about a business lunch you had with a woman, it's a good idea to tell us that she's fat, ugly, old, or a lesbian. Preferably all of them.
3. PMS is real. It's chemical, and it sucks. If someone told you that every thirty days you were going to get jacked repeatedly in the nuts, you'd be pissy around day twenty-six, too.
4. When we say, "I don't feel connected," the only appropriate response is, "I feel it, too. Let's go out for a nice dinner and reconnect." Try it. You will get laid.
5. If you can locate the following items in our home—tape, casserole dish, Christmas ornaments—you will get laid.
6. If you act excited about the bath mat we bought at Target, you will get laid.
7. We really want to have kids. That is, until you want to have kids. Then: "Hey, slow down. What about my career? It's my body. I'm not just a depository for your sperm, you know. Fuck off. Wait, come back. I'm sorry about that. It's sweet you want to have kids. Let's talk about it in a year."
8. You know what's really gay? Football. Instead of watching it, just have sex with another dude once a year. Get it all out of your system at once.
9. We can make a "celebrity safe list" if you want. But I am way more likely to get Patrick Dempsey to fuck me in a bathroom than you are to get Lindsay Lohan to suck you off in your car.
10. Okay, wait. Maybe not Lindsay Lohan. But you know what I mean.
And here is a video of the cast and crew of The Office reading the ten things.
Full season for Brothers and Sisters Despite choppy sailing, family drama gets the green-light from ABC.
ABC has picked up freshman series Brothers & Sisters for a full season, the network announced today. The drama series stars Calista Flockhart, Rachel Griffiths, and Sally Field.
Brothers and Sisters airs Sunday nights behind Desperate Housewives in the time slot previously occupied by Grey's Anatomy, which moved to Thursdays. According to ABC, Brothers and Sisters is the top new program on any night in the 10 p.m. hour and the second-highest-rated new series of the season among Adults 18-49.
"Brothers & Sisters is a great addition to our Sunday-night lineup and has given us a strong complement to Desperate Housewives," said ABC entertainment president Stephen McPherson.
Brothers premiered strongly after receiving negative buzz over the summer, with some critics questioning whether it was the "troubled show of the season" due to cast shuffles and backstage drama. After a strong start, the series has eroded 21 percent in the ratings.
Brothers joins the elite full-season ranks of freshman series Ugly Betty, Jericho, and Heroes. ABC made a similar decision when post-Desperate show Boston Legal was slumping in the ratings--the net ordered a full season of Boston, then moved it to another night and replaced it with then midseason Grey's Anatomy.
Source And oh for all of you Everwood fans out there who don't know, this show is co-run by Greg Berlanti now. :)
For all you right-clickers out there, the fans know to come to the Source first! Seems our pix are so popular, people just can't stop themselves from posting them on their own sites, even though it's a no-no. Okay..."
Okay -- I'm on my soapbox, so here I go .... our photographers worked for five weeks, night and day to get these pix of Britney so we can bring them to YOU, here on X17online.com and so we can MAKE MONEY selling them to magazines. Don't forget, people, we're not a charity! When other blogs take our images against our will, it devalues the images and pisses off our clients. Contrary to what some big-headed, faux blonde-haired bloggers think, them posting our images DOES NOT help our sales. And check it out, blogging used to be something fans did for fun -- look at how much some people are making these days, stealing other people's images and writing cute little blurbs about them:
Create ad / PerezHilton.com: Ads at top right column
The term for which the Ad will run
Max: 150 X 600 pixels and 35KB gif or jpg
And after using our images for free for years, check out what this ungrateful right-clicker emailed to me a couple hours ago after I ordered him to remove our pix from his site or face legal notice from our attorneys:
Don't threaten me bitch. I'm not scared! I would have gladly put up a link to your site but you had to get all nasty.
Instead of wanting to have me as a friend or an ally you choose to be a cunt! CUNT! And I don't wanna work with cunts. And liars. And unethical people. And that's what you are!
You've tried to fuck me over. And you've only fucked yourself over.
We wish this blogger lots of luck -- I'm sure having stories like a "Fergie Is The New Beyonce" will do wonders for his traffic.
Okay -- off the soapbox -- back to business. Britney rocks!

Sara Evans announced this week that she was dropping the show b/c of her pending divorce. Does this mean Willa will return? Could Master P. be back to take another turn on the stage? Will Joey's eyebrows ever return to normal?
Mary-Kate and Stavros Niarchos making all of us uncomfortable. (THIS PICTURE IS OLD, PEOPLE. But ~*cute*~ right?)
Mary-Kate Olsen has found love again.
The 20-year-old mogul has been single for about a year — ever since Paris Hilton swiped her last sweetie, shipping heir Stavros Niarchos — but for about a month, Olsen has been quietly dating oil heir Maxwell Snow, according to Star magazine.
Snow, who hails from Texas’ de Menil oil family, also happens to be Uma Thurman’s nephew — the son of her older half-sister, Taya Thurman.
Don’t expect the happy couple to go public with the romance anytime soon, however.
“Every time she gets a boyfriend, the media make it impossible for it to be a normal relationship, and she’s probably scared that all the attention would scare him away,” a source told he tab. “It’s happened before, so she’s not making any public appearances with him yet.”
Following Mischa Barton’s two-season run as the face of Bebe, The Daily has learned that Rebecca Romijn has been cast to star in the fashion line’s ad campaign beginning next March. The contract is for one year. “The company is so great and [Bebe company founder] Manny [Mashouf] is such a fantastic man,” the actress said Sunday night at the Pacific Design Center, where she received Hollywood Life magazine’s Hollywood Glamazon style award. “I love their new dresses and I think it’s going to be a great year; I’m thrilled to be a part of it.” Romijn, unfortunately, added that she would most likely not be in attendance at Bebe Collection designer David Cardona’s Spring 2007 show at Smashbox Studios Wednesday because she has to fly to Virginia to shoot her next film, Lake City.

Madonna: 'David is just the best little baby ever'
Madonna has revealed she's "never been happier" after an emotional trip to Malawi to adopt a 13-month-old baby.
After being allowed to take little David Banda home, the superstar added: 'It's so worth it. He's just the best baby ever. Guy and I have never been happier.'
Madonna, 48, wants David to be a brother to her children, Lourdes, nine, and Rocco, five.
And she has already got her eyes on a three-year-old girl from the same village as David. Describing the moment she saw her, she said: "I looked at this child with questioning dark eyes and the saddest smile. I thought, 'She looks just like me.' I told Guy, 'We must give this child a home, too.'"
Madonna has spoken about the possibility of adoption before. But intriguingly, Hello! magazine claims today that she had to overcome marital problems with Guy before going ahead with her Malawi plans.
"She wanted to wait until a rough patch in her marriage was smoothed over before she brought any more children into the situation," a relative of Madonna's in Michigan told Taraborrelli.
Thirteen-month-old David Banda flew in to Heathrow first class from Johannesburg on Sunday. No sooner had he touched down than he had his first taste of what life will be like with one of the world's biggest stars.
The team bringing him in - a nanny, bodyguard and other aides - dodged reporters at Terminal 1 arrivals hall before driving off in a silver Mercedes people carrier.
But they could not avoid all the photographers and camera crews, and today these pictures - of an innocent clinging for solace to his nanny, utterly ignorant of the fuss surrounding him - will flash around the world as the controversy over the adoption rages.
For the legal arguments are far from over. So far Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie have been granted an interim adoption order and David has been issued with a passport and visa.
But they have only been given temporary custody for 18 months, and after that anything can happen.
For now David needs a home, and as of this morning that is Madonna's house in London. Just before 8am the people carrier with blacked-out windows raced into the rear garage of the property near Marble Arch.
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has hit out at the environmental impact caused by bands touring, and as a result is looking into travelling to Japan by train.
The singer, who is supporting Friends Of The Earth's Big Ask campaign to reduce carbon emissions in the UK by making it law, has threatened to quit playing long distance locations if steps are not taken to reduce carbon emissions.
"I think it's a necessary part of what I do, to tour or play live, but I find it unacceptable what the consequences of that are," he explained.
"Some of our best ever shows have been in the US, but there's 80,000 people there and they've all been sitting in traffic jams for five or six hours with their engines running to get there, which is bollocks.
"The way that tours are structured now and the way it works is a ridiculous consumption of energy... I would consider refusing to tour on environmental grounds, if nothing started happening to change the way the touring operates."
Yorke said he would rather take other forms of transport for tours abroad, but the other band members are against the idea.
"When you discuss it you feel like a prat because you're saying, 'I'm not happy with that and I want to do it another way. I want to go to the US by ship'," Yorke told The Guardian. "The Cure did that years ago because Robert Smith refused to fly, and then I get told that if you take the ship, that's as much carbon usage."
He added: "Long haul flights just feel wrong. I'm trying to figure out a way of getting to Japan by train. I quite fancy that Trans-Siberian whatsitsname but apparently it's a bit scary."
Friends Of The Earth is lobbying the government to try and introduce new climate change legislation in next month's Queen's speech.
"The possible return of Chris Columbus to the series?
Last week, we had the opportunity to speak with Julie Walters and Jeremy Brock about their new film, Driving Lessons. Because of some scheduling and his shooting schedule, Rupert Grint was unable to make it then.
But fear not, Rupert flew in from the Harry Potter set in London to speak with JewReview.net about his first starring role in Driving Lessons. We spoke about working with his Potter co-star, Julie and playing a character based on the life of writer/director, Jeremy.
In Driving Lessons, Rupert plays a young man who starts working for a former actress; he’s then torn between staying by her side or being confined to his house with his over-protective mother (Laura Linney).
Then, we got to talking about The Order of the Phoenix. He told us about how the Weasley’s are much more involved in this film. And he even mentioned the return of Chris Columbus as director to the series for the 6th and 7th film."
