Friday newsflash!

Here's the second installment of my new weekly newsflash post. I'd hoped to keep it more lighthearted and jovial, but this week I can't seem to think about much other news but Haiti. The horrendous and giant scale of it all just overwhelms me. It's never too late to help out with the relief effort by way of monetary donation.

Conan and Leno are still in a catfight. It could just be because I've never been much into the late night talk show thing, but I just don't get what all the fuss is about. NBC, if you have ratings problems, just take care of business and move on. Whatever happens neither diva seems to be leaving the airwaves anytime soon, so who cares. I think this cartoon pretty much sums up how I feel about the whole thing. (Note, if you can't read it, the bubble says "Will this make you more likely to watch Jay or Conan?")

Casey Johnson, the socialite and heiress tragically died last week. The latest with this story is that her fiance, Tila Tequila, the biggest reality TV famewhore ever, its trying to get custody of Johnsnon's 3-year-old daughter. Jigga what? Why ever in the world would a bi-sexual drunken crazy person who became famous for the sluttiness of her myspace page ever win the battle with Johnson's mega-rich and stable family, not to mention the biological relatives of the child? Ms. Tequila also communicates all of her moves via Tweet because her publicist quit this week. I can't wait to hear what Nancy Grace thinks.

Sarah Palin made her debut on Fox news this week. Sarah Palin and Fox News really work my nerves. (That's actually a huge understatement, in the interest of being "more positive in 2010"). I really can't even list all the things that bother me about her, but she is television gold. Obviously I tuned in to watch her. One point for Fox News.

Jessica Simpson has been romantically linked with Billy Corgan, of Smashing Pumpkins fame. HUH? Last time I checked he was extremely talented and legitimately famous for his contribution to music. Last time I checked, she was in the middle of a weight battle because of some really unfortunate photos in some high-waisted jeans. If she is finally finding love, I support her. But I really do wonder what they talk about? Musical Composition? Phen Phen? Or is this just a boob thing? Hope it becomes a reality show. If you can't tell from the picture, that's her undressing him with her eyes. Or maybe she's spacing out. Who ever knows?

Personal news: The Prince is back in good health and spirits. Halleluja! I intend to investigate pet insurance... Work week has been mind-numbingly slow...Get skinny effort has been slightly de-railed....network television returned to my life, that could be affecting the skinny effort.
