“I had my four years there like high school or college. I’m ready for the next chapterâ€”what it is, I have no idea. I don’t want to be 48 saying, ‘Hey kids, now it’s Sean Preston Spears’ video.’ ”
Vanessa Minnillo on why she’s getting the hell out of TRL.

Roger Ebert was diagnosed with cancer last year and has gone through hell to get better. He was forced to have part of his jaw amputated and because of that, and surgery to fix the problem, he is unable to speak. He knows that illness has ravaged his looks but he isn’t hiding and rather is coming out to the media as an example of going on with your life in the face of illness.
My Ninth Annual Overlooked Film Festival opens Wednesday night at the University of Illinois at Urbana, and Chaz and I will be in attendance. This year I wonâ€™t be speaking, however, as I await another surgery. I have received a lot of advice that I should not attend the festival. Iâ€™m told that paparazzi will take unflattering pictures, people will be unkind, etc.
I love that he still has a great sense of humor. He goes to say that it is the most important thing for him to be at his film festival and be surrounded by friends, well-wishers, and even the pesky gossip rags.
At least, not being able to speak, I am spared the need to explain why every film is â€œoverlooked,â€ or why I wrote â€œBeyond the Valley of the Dolls.â€ Being sick is no fun. But you can have fun while youâ€™re sick. I wouldnâ€™t miss the festival for anything! P.S. to gossip rags: I have some back pain, and to make it easier for me to sit through screenings, the festival has installed my very own La-Z-Boy chair. Photos of me in the chair should be captioned â€œLa-Z-Critic.â€

I think she proved stereotypes shouldn’t be blah blah blah.
And now she’s adiosed. She rides the bye-bye train out of Dancing With The Starsville.
The reason: She wasn’t as good a dancer as the rest. Plus, technically, she’s not a star.

So Rosie isn’t leaving “The View” because of any on-set drama, controversy, or anything really exciting to write about. She is leaving because of money. I’m guessing they already pay her a lot to do her job so I’m a little peeved. I liked Rosie on “The View.” I think the show is going to be hard-pressed to find someone as news-worthy (or really gossip-worthy) as miss Rosie.
Here is here statement via ABC.
This has been an amazing experience, and one I wouldn’t have traded for the world. Working with Barbara, Joy and Elisabeth has been one of the highlights of my career, but my needs for the future just didn’t dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me. To all the viewers out there, I just want to say ‘thank you’ for opening up your hearts and your homes to me this past year. But you can always find me at rosie.com. Here’s hoping there’s more confetti for all of us going forward.
There are a lot of “we love Rosie” gushing from Barbra and the executives on ABC.com as well. They keep saying over and over again “we only thought she’d be with us one year.” Whatever.
Bring Back Lisa Ling!

I think the thing that gets lost when Lindsay is acting like a lunatic is the fact that she’s actually quite striking. I don’t know if her life is going to come together, if she’s going to start acting like a full fledged grown-up, but in the right light, at the right time, I’d call her dreamy.
Also she wishes us peace. Also, I’m still not sure I’d date her. Due to daddy issues she’d probably punt your dog off a bridge in a drunken rage.

You have to admire the spirit here. One song, one man, no hope of success in the future. Plus he always looks goofy in photos and he’s level jumping on the dating scene.
Sigh. My hero.
