Former WILL + GRACE co-stars MEGAN MULLALLY and SEAN HAYES are set to star in a spin-off of the hit comedy.
The pair will reprise their camp double-act in Karen + Jack, which is currently in development at network NBC.
According to sources, Hayes was keen on a spin-off soon after Will + Grace ended in 2006 - but was put off by the failure of Matt LeBlanc's Friends follow-on Joey.
Plans were then derailed when Mullally landed a talk show - but that flopped, throwing the pair back together again.
The insider tells the National Enquirer, "They feel there is still a lot of life left in their characters and a lot of comic possibilities."
If a pilot episode is successful, Karen + Jack could be on the air in the U.S. next autumn (09).
as much as i love jack & karen, i'm not so sure this is a good idea.

It's happened—someone has finally made an honest man of Howard Stern.
After a somewhat lengthy engagement, the Sirius Satellite shock jock has taken the marital plunge with longtime girlfriend Beth Ostrosky, tying the knot in a private event at New York City's famed Le Cirque restaurant earlier tonight.
The duo swapped vows in front of family and friends, both famous and otherwise, with a who's who of Manhattan's A-list in attendance.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos topped the guest list, with Consuelos, who became an ordained minister over the summer, performing the ceremony.
Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Adam Carolla, Barbara Walters, Billy Joel and wife Katie Lee, Joan Rivers, Stern's radio cohosts Robin Quivers and Artie Lang, Chevy Chase, Donald and Melania Trump and John Stamos were reportedly among the event's 180 esteemed wedding guests.
As it is, Consuelos wasn't the only guest pulling double duty: Joel sang a song and Chase delivered a speech following the ceremony.

So a few days back, we got to see Blake in this revealing swimuit, posing on the beach. Yesterday, Audrina happened to pose prettily herself in a very similar bathingsuit.

O.J. Simpson guilty in armed robbery, kidnapping trial
Former gridiron great O.J. Simpson was found guilty of all 12 counts in the armed robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas, Nevada, casino hotel last year.
Simpson, 61, and his co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart, 54, were charged with a dozen offenses stemming from the alleged sports memorabilia heist.
Stewart was also found guilty of the same charges as Simpson. Both men will likely spend the rest of their lives in prison.
Simpson arrived at the Clark County Justice Center at around 10:50 p.m. (1:50 a.m. Saturday ET). He told CNN's Ted Rowlands on the phone before the verdict was read that he was "apprehensive."
As hoped, Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines have signed on to join the cast of In the Motherhood, ABC's broadcast adaptation of the popular online series starring Chelsea Handler, Leah Remini and Jenny McCarthy, and chronicling "the hilarious ups and downs of motherhood."
While Mullally (a winner of two Emmys for her work on Will & Grace) and Hines (twice nominated for Curb Your Enthusiasm) represent the only official casting to date, there has been speculation that from the Internet original, Handler might cross over to round out the trio.
ABC's In the Motherhood is targeted for an early 2009 bow.

Hilary Duff's official YouTube account uploaded the Depeche Mode sampled "Reach Out" and it sounds so good! It's missing Prophet's rap but he's posted a few pictures of him on set of the video shoot so I think Hollywood Records just wanted a lot of rapless edits and his contribution will still be in the video. Unless they've completely axed him. Either way the original is so much better than the remixes posted and this song looks to do very well for Hilary. Enjoy!

NATALIE PORTMAN - HINDU SCHOLARS CALL FOR PORTMAN APOLOGY
NATALIE PORTMAN has upset America's leading Hindus with her portrayal of an Indian princess in ex-boyfriend DEVENDRA BANHART's new CARMENSITA video - and they're calling for a public apology from her.
Religious scholars have called the actress' role of Princess Carmensita Saplingita in the promo "denigrating" to Hinduism, claiming it "mocks Hindu concepts and symbols".
Acclaimed Hindu and Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed admits he is deeply hurt by the video, which he claims simply serves to feed incorrect stereotypes of his religion.
He says, "The images used in the video are revered in Hinduism and are not to be thrown around loosely for dramatic effects.
"We invite Hollywood to immerse itself in Hinduism, but we ask that actors and actresses, directors and producers take our religion seriously and respectfully.
"Hindus would gladly provide genuine Hollywood seekers the resources they needed for their study and research. Casual flirting sometimes results in pillaging serious spiritual doctrines and revered symbols and hurting the devotees."
And he is not alone in calling for a public apology from Portman - officials at the Hindu Alliance of India, Shri Ramayan Pracharini Sabha, India Heritage Panel, have also demanded she distance herself from the Banhart video.
Zed adds, "Forgiveness is one of the main virtues of Hindu ethics. If Natalie Portman offers a sincere public apology, Hindus would not only absolve her but might also pray for her success in future ventures."

RACHEL GETTING MARRIED
Best Bets Best Actress, Anne Hathaway: The 25-year-old fashion plate and recent tabloid staple is thoroughly convincing as an out-of-rehab troublemaker.
Best Original Screenplay, Jenny Lumet: The first produced script from the daughter of filmmaker Sidney Lumet is full of memorable moments—some dark, some light, all truthful.
Possible Best Supporting Actress, Rosemarie DeWitt: Fresh off her turn as Jon Hamm's mistress on Season 1 of Mad Men, DeWitt is the perfect foil to Hathaway as the titular bride-to-be.
Long shot Best Supporting Actress, Debra Winger: The three-time nominee is terrific as the film's main mother figure but may lack the screen time to score a nod.
FLASH OF GENIUS
Long shot Best Actor, Greg Kinnear: Kinnear anchors the man-against-corporation drama with ease, but the film's lukewarm reviews don't bode well.
Long shot Best Actress, Julianne Moore: One of these years she'll get her fifth nomination (and surely she'll actually win eventually). But there just may be too many other strong lead female contenders this year.
Possible Best Documentary: If Michael Moore can win an Oscar, surely Bill Maher can snag a nomination for his wildly entertaining skewering of organized religion, right? It'll all depend on how faith-based the Academy is.

Please note T.I. remains sexy even while wearing a Christmas tree inspired outfit
T.I.'s new album, Paper Trail, is currently shaping up to be the number one album on the Billboard charts.
The always erotic hip hop artist recently released his sixth studio effort and if sales remain as sexy/strong as they have been, Paper Trail is set to be a gigantic hit.
According to Billboard.com, T.I.'s "357,000 figure is the third-largest Friday Building Chart sum of the year, trailing only Lil Wayne's Cash Money/Universal Motown set "Tha Carter III" (630,000) and Coldplay's Capitol album "Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends" (459,000). Those two albums finished their first full week in stores shifting 1 million and 721,000, respectively."
All in all, the conclusion we can draw from this is that T.I. is a delight for the eyes and ears.

Oasis brand Keane 'shit'Noel Gallagher also reveals life threatening studio incident
Oasis have slammed Keane again branding the trio "shit".
Noel Gallagher criticised the band for recent comments they made about their forthcoming album 'Perfect Symmetry'.
He said: "(Tom Chaplin) He's going on and on about being taken out of his comfort zone when making his new album. What the fuck does that mean?.
"Why would you want to be uncomfortable when making an album? No matter what direction Keane take, it doesn't matter - they'll still be shit."
The band have been renowned for slamming Keane in the past with Gallagher branding the trio "twats" and Liam calling Chaplin a "posh lightweight" after his spell in rehab in 2006.
But Gallagher heaped praise on U2 and defended Bono who he believes is often misunderstood.
He added: "I fucking love U2 and I always have done - I love the size of that band. Whether you like them or not, you cannot deny that U2 have written some great fucking songs.
"People will not accept that Bono is sincere - in this cynical age, they think he's really just a cunt. But he's not."
The Oasis leader also revealed that the police had to be called in during the recording sessions for Dig Out Your Soul after somebody threatened the band.
He told The Belfast Telegraph: "There was an incident when some fucking lunatic turned up at the studio saying he'd written all the songs that we hadn't yet recorded. The police had to be called - he threatened to kill us, although not Liam funnily enough."
Meanwhile the band have also been accused of plagiarising Cliff Richard's 'Devil Woman' on album track 'The Turning' by the veteran singer's fans.
The civil suit, filed by attorney Tim McGowan, says Winfrey "launched what amounted to a defamatory campaign" against Mzamane late last year by implying that Mzamane is "untrustworthy, failed the students of the academy, did not care about the students at the academy, knew of alleged physical and sexual abuse at the academy and participated in a cover-up of the alleged abuse," according to legal papers.
The suit cites Winfrey made last October and November in the wake of a dorm matron at the school being charged with assaulting and abusing students.
Mzamane, 39, also filed a defamation suit against the blog the Huffington Post and publicity expert Joan Stewart for a Nov. 19, 2007, posting by Stewart saying Mzamane was charged in connection with the scandal.
Mzamane has said there was no cover-up at the school and she knew nothing about the allegations, which she learned about while on a business trip to the U.S.
Seeks Quarter Million, Plus DamagesMzamane was the assistant head of operations at a private school in Philadelphia when she says Winfrey recruited her to run the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. She started work on Dec. 31, 2006.
Since her termination, Mzamane has not been able to find comparable work and suffers from "depression, anxiety and insomnia," the suit states. She is asking for $50,000 for each of five different claims, including defamation by innuendo and intentional inflection of emotional distress, plus unspecified punitive damages.
A rep for Winfrey did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and neither did the Huffington Post nor Joan Stewart.

Tila Tequila (real name Tila Nguyen) is a Vietnamese model, singer, and aspiring actress who's claim to fame is that she has a lot of friends (on Myspace). Originally a playboy model, Tequila has also graced the pages of Maxim, Stuff, Time, and Penthouse. In 2007 she created her reality TV show, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, which renewed for a second season in 2008.
Why she made our list?
The story of Tila Tequila is the story of a young woman burdened by many troubles who ambitiously aspired to become one of the most renowned figures in the world. Although she may be more infamous than famous, it is clear that her name is wide-spread and that she has thousands of fans across the world. The fact is that she has a lot of influence, especially on the young teenage girl population. Her badass, tomboy attitude may be one of the top reasons she has gained such fame. She can only get more popular at this point since she is set to be featured on yet another reality TV show that features her life.

Hollywood heart-throb Temuera Morrison is the latest high-profile Kiwi counting the cost of the credit crunch.
The Star Wars actor (he played Boba Fett's father/source of clones), who has put his plush mansion on the shore of Lake Rotorua out to tender, told the Herald on Sunday the recession, the American writers' strike and lack of business confidence have seen him fall on hard times.
"I've got to face realities," Morrison said. "I had a pretty quiet year, and the way things have stacked up I'm swimming against the tide. I really just need [businessman] Owen Glenn to give me $100,000 instead of Winston Peters, and I'll remember it quite vividly."
But Morrison, who shot to worldwide fame with his performance as Jake the Muss in Once Were Warriors, isn't quitting New Zealand, despite a "quiet year in terms of the acting business. I might have bitten off a bit more than I could chew thinking that the Hollywood movies would still roll on in, but the strikes we had earlier on means confidence is still low.

Paquin's had surgery on the tumour and faces more in the future. She's had gruelling treatment and takes medication daily, but sidesteps questions about its severity. "I don't want to go into too much detail but, you know, I am hoping to get through this."
Diagnosed with a brain tumour three years ago, Paquin has been "kind of dealing with it ever since". She downplays the gravity of her medical condition, using words such as "tricky health stuff" to describe all that she is going through. "I mean a lot of people have difficulties that they have to deal with and we are trying to deal with it as best as we can. All I can say is that you can't ask for a better partner than Russel if you have to deal with something like this. You know it's not ideal but we have had really, really good care and we have had a lot of support from our friends and family."

Indeed, the New York Times once called him "the best actor alive". "Are you serious?" he roars. "Man, I spend most of my time trying to avoid work!"
You've been busy this year, but over the last couple of years you've made fewer movies. Why?
I spend a lot of time trying to resist doing anything, really! Honestly, there are a lot of things I love to do other than making movies, and I know that once I commit to a film it's going to prevent me from doing any of these other things. So I do try and not commit; I try hard not to engage. But sometimes there's an element in it which I just can't resist. It changes with each movie. You can just get a feeling, and you don't know what that is until you do the movie.
Is that why you signed up for the new Tron movie?
Yeah, that's another unique, wild experience that was too good to turn down. Engaging in that world again feels just like it did all that time ago. Basically, I'm still a child, I love being childlike, and here was another chance to play with these crazy toys. And the cutting-edge technology makes it exciting. Doing the teaser trailer for Comic-Con, I had my first experience of motion capture. And that's turning the industry on its head. It's amazing being part of that.
There's such a retro love for Tron. How do you bring it up to date?
Well, when we made Tron there was no internet, no cellphones. But now we have motion capture, so I think we'll get a far more successful version of the story, which is someone literally getting sucked into a video game. When we did King Kong in the 70s, one minute you'd have a shot of Rick Baker in this big suit and then you'd cut to this 80ft stiff model, and they looked nothing alike. Compare to that Peter Jackson's King Kong the technology is there and they did a wonderful job. I thought they created a beautiful Kong. So I hope that'll be the same for Tron.

I don’t think that before us a German band has met such hype in the USA.
Yet, one can slow a bit down the enthusiasm of your American success: during your promo there, you have sold only 100,000 albums, while the goal was to reach 500,000..
Bill: You’re right, despite our efforts, ‘Scream’ has not really taken off in the U.S. charts. Frankly, I don’t know what the reason is. We have done our best to make our music known to as many people, but the US market is very difficult to access for foreign artists. However, without wanting to sing our own praises, selling 100,000 albums is still enormous for a German band. We are not disappointed by this result.
Tom: What we enjoyed the most was to receive an MTV Video Music Awards for Best New Artist. We didn’t expect that at all since we were in competition with Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry or Taylor Swift, who are far more popular than us over there. To receive this award was a real shock.

Recently Jim Carrey's partner, Jenny McCarthy published 'Mother Warriors', the follow up to 'Louder than Words', her Times #3 bestseller of the story of her efforts to rescue her son Evan from autism. An overwhelming sucess, 'Louder than Words' re-opened the Autism debate and gave hope to many, as she recounted her harrowing tale of despair and recovery.
Her involvement with Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) and Generation Rescue saw her profile as an activist escalate and a huge USA tour saw her giving talks to over 60,000 affected by autism. The response was immense and as parents shared their stories, Jenny was compelled to share their tales of strength and determination. 'Mother Warriors' was the result.
Beginning with her own harrowing tale, Jenny explains the fight to pull Evan through the 'Autism Window' using a mixture of trial and error interventions. A firm believer in bio-medical therapy she discusses how she navigated her way through the many autism therapies and the effects they had. Along the way her marriage failed and her new love Jim Carrey witnessed her struggles.
Impassioned by her story, Jim Carrey wrote a chapter full of love and positivity and he has since joined her on the board of Generation Rescue. The second half of the book is dedicated to fellow 'Mother (and father) Warriors'. Their stories are all harrowing and sometimes heartbreaking but all with the common theme, never give up hope!

After a trip with her older kids to Lee’s Art Shop earlier today, Angelina Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt, attended the premiere of Angelina’s movie The Changeling - and she took some time to talk to People magazine.
On how everyone’s doing: “Everybody’s great,” she told PEOPLE. “The babies are getting big and healthy and developing personalities.”
On how much sleep they’re getting with new twins at home: “We are a little bit [sleep deprived]. We have some help a couple of nights a week, so on those nights we catch up on our sleep.”
On looking so great after giving birth to twins not even three months ago: “I run around with all the other kids, and I’m breastfeeding, which I think is a part of your body’s recovery,” Jolie said. “I feel great [and] feel very happy that they’re healthy.”
On her new movie, in which she plays a mother whose son is kidnapped: “Your worst fear is anything happening to your kids. The reason I didn’t want to do the film for a long time … every day I came home, and I was so clinging to my kids. I was grabbing them. And checking them in the night. It scares me.”
On if they plan to adopt more kids: “I think we’re going to wait a little while.”
On the paparazzi:
"Makes me so angry. So many people care about your personal life over your talent. I don’t live to be famous. I don’t live to be recognized. I never want to be on the cover of Us Weekly. I truly am telling you: I despise this aspect. There used to be mystery, mystique about the lives of filmland folks, Now, there’s a war going on, and we’re still [asking], ‘What did Britney Spears have for breakfast?’"
On her relationship with Macaulay:
"We don’t talk about it to the press. We’ve been together going on seven years—because we don’t talk about it. It’s already more high profile than I want it to be."
On not being plastic:
"I have nothing fake about me. Not one single thing. I will never. I don’t have a boob job, I don’t have extensions, I don’t have fake lashes. Do I wish I had bigger tits and an ass? Absolutely! If it makes you feel better about yourself on the inside I see nothing wrong with it. But I am 100 percent happy with what God gave me.”
On the industry:
"At 19, I wanted nothing to do with this industry—hated every aspect of it. I was going to go to college. I wanted to be a teacher." [Kunis did attend classes at Loyola Marymount for a time] “I realized I enjoyed doing what I do, minus all the other bullshit that came along with it.
"I’m not ‘industry.’ I’m not gonna make an album. I’m not going to come out with a fuckin’ clothing line. It’s not who I am, and people are fully aware of it.”
On the best part about working on Max Payne:
“I got to put on leather pants every day and go in and kick some ass. I loved that I wasn’t the damsel in distress, that ‘poor-me’ girl who needs some guy to save her. There’s one scene in which [Mark Wahlberg’s character] gets wounded, and I run in with my MK5 and shoot the bad guy.”

Britney & Madonna Friendship Over?
MADONNA'S friendship with Britney Spears is reportedly on the rocks after the Toxic singer ditched Kabbalah.
Spears, 26, had been following the mystical Jewish faith as part of her ongoing attempts to straighten out her public image.
But, according to Britain's News of The World newspaper, Spears no longer wants to be involved with the celeb religion -- and subsequently had her forthcoming live spot on Madonna's Sticky & Sweet tour dumped.
A source says, "Madonna is dismayed that Britney has just dropped Kabbalah.
"She's always believed it is a way of life, not just something to pick up and get rid of on a whim.
"Madonna doesn't feel she can work with Britney any more because they're just not aligned on a spiritual level."
Britney -- who releases her sixth studio album, Circus, in December -- was due to appear on stage with the Queen of Pop for a live duet as part of the US leg of her tour. But the stunt has now been axed.
Zimbabwean Chelsy was checked into a London hospital last week and is making a speedy recovery. And Harry has been in constant contact with her via online networking site Facebook.
‘Harry uses Facebook under the name Spike Wells,’ says a pal. ‘He has been leaving lovey-dovey messages on her wall about how much he misses her. ‘They are very much in love even though they haven’t seen each other for weeks. After their trial split last year, they are stronger than ever.’
Although Harry promised his grandfather Prince Philip that he would curb his partying, he made a fleeting visit to Boujis in September before he left for Canada. And he was spotted with Chelsy at a party in West London. ‘They were having a great time and he and Chelsy were larking around with some laughing gas. They were in very high spirits,’ recalls a witness.
