It’s no secret that American Idol audition candidates are the creme of the crop. One can only assume the show’s producers subject their talent to rigorous background checks, psychological screenings, and drug sniffing dogs. So it was a shock to discover that one candidate on Tuesday night’s episode has a history of violence.
Rhonetta Johnson, last seen gloating about her musical abilities to little fanfare, was charged in 2003 with "assault of a deadly weapon–cutting." Apparently Bitch will cut you.

Because we just can’t get enough of America’s Funniest Home Videos, we are thrilled to hear about two new shows slated to air in the coming months. USA has ordered a new pilot called eBaum’s World, inspired by the website of the same name where people can post their funny home videos and clips. Meanwhile, Ultimate Blunders on TLC showcases some of our dumbest moments.
Lets just hope both shows land hosts with the wit and candor of Tom Bergeron. (thanks Cynopsis)

First official images of Dr. Gonzo playing legendary revolution leader/hipster T-shirt symbol Che Guevara. A million stoned college kids’ heads just exploded.
Pierce Brosnan has five (!) projects currently in the works: Seraphim Falls, The Topkapi Affair, Mexicali, Butterfly on a Wheel, Instant Karma. Yet tragically, he doesnâ€™t want to do a movie based on Remington Steele, which was the most awesome show ever. He canâ€™t be swayed with money, so let the passionate letter-writing campaign commence!
This might be the most awesome game ever, of all time, for serious. Wrap your brain around THIS: a mash-up up classical games Duck Hunk and 1945, that requires you to shoot ducks AND enemy Nazi soldiers. Win the war while killing your dinner! Check it out!

Drunk Kiefer Sutherland stories are my absolute favorite. From what I hear, just about everybody living in LA has one. Here’s the most recent (from Page 6)
"24" STAR Kiefer Sutherland shocked staffers at the Ye Rustic Inn in Los Feliz, Calif., the other morning when he bellied up to the bar around 9 a.m. demanding to start a tab, reports Steppin’ Out magazine. Editor Chaunce Hayden says the normally thick-waisted Sutherland looked "rail-thin" when he entered the tiny dive bar with a group of rowdy pals and ordered a round of drinks. According to witnesses, when presented with the bill, Sutherland claimed his wallet was "indisposed" – "It’s been stolen! I promise I’ll come back and pay." At that point, things got weird. "He started to go into a series of karate kicks in the middle of the floor while the bartender, waitress and several customers looked on," Hayden reports.
Don’t these people know who they’re dealing with??? That’s Jack Bauer! Don’t charge him! God knows what he’s capable of. And c’mon, we’ve all seen 24… the guys’ been through a lot.
Sure Jamie Foxx released a chart-topping album following his Oscar win for Ray and child star Macaulay Culkin is embarking on a much-hyped writing career. But the hardest career transition to make is from hawking phone dating services on late night TV to holding down a fulltime job.
