Ryan Seacrest to Host Emmys

Ryan Seacrest to Host Emmys

The real question is: what isn’t Ryan Seacrest hosting these days?

Ryan Seacrest is hosting the Emmys. Ryan Seacrest is hosting the Super Bowl pre-game party. Ryan Seacrest is hosting American Idol. Ryan Seacrest is hosting on E! Ryan Seacrest is hosting his KIIS-FM radio show.

The only thing Ryan Seacrest still isn’t hosting is a girlfriend. I’d mention that I’m available for the position, if I thought it were available. But, I think he’s looking to fill a different position, if you know what I mean.

“Ryan Seacrest appeals to a broad audience, including the highly desirable young adult demographic, so he should serve as a magnet for attracting a diverse array of viewers to our Emmy telecast,” said Dick Askin, chairman and chief executive officer of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Yeah, right. You could have Barney host the Emmys and it still wouldn’t attract a younger audience, guys. But it’s sweet of you to try.

But What I Really Want to do Is SING!

Singing Lindsay

Ok, so since Lindsay Lohan is pretty much uninsurable in the movie biz she has decided to give the whole “singer” thing another go.

I have to admit I did buy a few Lindsay Lohan singles off iTunes…but really for a dollar I would buy about anything. I have to stay away from those dollar stores or else I come home with 50 printed pot-holders and nowhere to put them.

Anyway, Lindsay has a lot to “write” about now. Unlike Kelly Clarkson who tried to write an angry deep album and kept pushing the fact that she had some dark angry times in her post-Idol life Lindsay has been passed around every bad boy in Hollywood, gone through a serious drug problem and his rehab three times. In the game of who has more dark times to write about she totally wins.

I’m really excited about this. Yes, that makes me feel a bit dirty.

Donald Trump Knows a Good Trainwreck When He Sees One


Okay, okay. Uncle. I had no plans to watch or care about Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, which is currently slated to feature boring D-listers Jim Cramer, Carmen Electra, Joan Rivers, Naomi Judd, George Foreman, Omarosa (from the original season of Apprentice), Kimora Lee Simmons, Pete Rose, Dana Patrick, Tony Hawk and Jeff Gordon (I don’t know who half those people are, but haven’t most of them done The Surreal Life already?), but now that Mr. Trump is talking about bringing on Britney, Paris and Lindsay, I’m paying attention.

“We’re negotiating with Britney right now. Can you imagine her doing it?” says Trump. “We’re not sure what will happen. She’s a [bleep]ing mess. And that little reality show she had did nothing. But she likes the idea of being on television and I think she’d be great.”

Hey. I liked Chaotic. Watching stoned people is always funny.

He says that Paris Hilton “wants to be on, and we’re thinking about it, but I don’t know if we’re going to do it.”

And as for Lindsay? “Another [bleep]ing mess. We haven’t asked her yet, but I’m going to call her this week. It would a positive thing for her to do . . . for all of them.” Um … I think Lohan’s upcoming jail stint may conflict with the filming schedule.

Hilton’s new crisis rep, Mike Sitrick, said he hadn’t heard of any deal in progress, which is probably because Donald Trump is making all of this up in order to get us talking about his show, which no one is going to watch because, come on, people, VH1 already has the monopoly on D-list trainwreck voyeurism. But, Donald, you have my word: if you can get Britney Spears on this thing, I will watch it. I will write about. So make it happen, buddy.

Blind Item!

WHICH Oscar-winning actor has his friends worried? His career’s gone downhill since getting the gold statue and his drinking has increased tenfold. Now, he doesn’t even try to hide his public drunkenness or his affairs.

Apologies for Technical Difficulties

Hi all,

Sorry posting has been non-existent the past couple of days. We are having technical difficulties. And by technical difficulties, I mean my next-door neighbors moved and took their Wi-Fi connection with them. So the cable guy is coming tomorrow to make an honest woman of me, and, until then, I’ve found a lovely Tea Lounge with free Wi-Fi. So we’re back.
