I need to ask– am I the only person who watches season finales for shows I’ve never seen before? I don’t know what it is, but whenever I hear a show is ending I’m suddenly interested enough to tune in. Case in point- Gilmore Girls tonight. Not only are they wrapping up their season, but Sonic Youth and Chloe from 24 are dropping by. That’s enough to make me want to watch. Other season finales tonight: Veronica Mars and MTV’s 8th & Ocean. If final episodes aren’t your thing, don’t worry- we got American Idol on Fox, Scrubs on NBC, a Kathy Griffin stand-up special on Bravo, and a TV movie that’s guaranteed to make you laugh uncontrollably about the bird flu- Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America. So what are YOU watching tonight? Vote now!
In a recent interview with designer Isaac Mizrahi, Madonna admitted she’s a “crap mother.” The pop superstar said, “It is a struggle to balance my career with my children. I’m always going: ‘Oh God, I’m a crap mother.’ I want to get home and put my kids to bed. And then sometimes, if I’m spending a lot of time with my children, I think: ‘Oh God, I just want to be an artist.’” In terms of skill, we think Madonna’s just as good a mother as she is an artist.
- To no one’s surprise, but to everyone’s utter letdown, it looks like Star Jones will be leaving The View. Our only hope for good estrogen-enriched television now lies in the shaking, nervous hands of the only other worthy adversary for the venmous bile of Rosie O’Donnell – Joy “The Jackyl” Behar.
- I didn’t even know Dennis Quaid was suing the makers of Brokeback Mountain. Was there a deleted scene in which Jack and Ennis visit The Alamo, and end up having a steamy three-way with Sam Houston?
- Keef Richards is reportedly “up and talking” after his recent brain surgery. He apparently keeps demanding the bedside nurse pour “a spot of rum punch” into his morphine drip.
- So to re-cap: David Blaine hung out in a tank of water for a week with the aid of feeding and waste tubes, then almost drowned. Ooooh, magical!
- In case you missed last night’s series finale of 7th Heaven, all you need to know about how things wrapped up are these five words: drug-fueled, Satan-worshipping orgy.
Before Fergie was a Black Eyed Pea with a fugly face and questionable taste in fashion she was Stacy Ferguson– a pretty cute kid on Kids Incorporated. Check out this great video Dropped by OCDFreelancer. It makes you feel nostalgic, queasy, and a little disturbed all at the same time. “My Humps” tends to do that to ya.
It’s hard to say why the band Orleans never hit it big. Some people say it was the music, but others think it was the decision to put this picture on their album cover. Well, you can’t blame it on the fact that they didn’t get along. Props to ocdfreelancer 11 for submitting a list of the best worst album covers ever.
Unfortunately, most of the albums are unrecognizable. But we’re sure some of our favorite bands have made some bad choices.Who do you think is missing from the list? Tell us in the comments section.
It’s Best Night Ever for Monday, May 8th! Bob Castrone is here to walk you through the best of Monday night tv, including David Blaine: Drowned Alive, Prison Break, and 24!
MANDATE FROM THE PEOPLE : Laguna Beach’s Kristin Cavalleri gets bruised and bloodied for her upcoming horror flick. (Barbie Martini)
MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR GUY RITCHIE : It’s not simply that Madonna’s complaining in this clip, it’s that she’s doing it with an accent.(Dlisted )

NO SH*T TIP: Forbes’ list of 15 ways to live longer cites “being rich” and “having more sex” as surefire ways to extend your life. We were hoping to just eat more bran, but if it means living longer I guess we’ll give those other things a try. (Forbes)
NEXT SIMPSON APPENDAGE TO GET SURGERY: Wonder if Ashlee can suggest a good plastic surgeon for sister and SAG-member Jessica. (ONTD)
Two weeks ago, Ashlee Simpson was nothing more than Jessica’s younger, less talented, bigger-nosed sister. But after going under the knife Doctor 90210 style, that’s not the case today. Now nobody can say she has a bigger nose (the less talented stuff is still cool, though.)
People are loving Ashlee’s new schnoz. Egotastic has posted over 60 photographs of the singer, and there are whispers throughout the blogosphere that Ashlee may have surpassed Jessica as the sexier Simpson sister. It’s amazing what a little rhinoplasty can do. After looking at the pics, I started thinking that she has a better voice too. You’re doing some great PR work, Ashlee Simpson’s Nose– and that’s why I think you’re having the best week ever.
- Maggie Gyllenhaal almost quit the September 11th movie she’s filming over views on America’s response to the event. Thankfully Hollywood’s blockbuster response to the event is right on target.
- Brad Pitt buys an island home in the Dominican Republic. So over the whole Namibia scene.
- Remember Vitamin C? She’s making a comeback , hopefully this time she’ll be encased in chewable Flinstones.
- Brooke Burke and the Burger King break up. Friends still prefer him to Bruce Willis.
- Brooke Hogan films her new music video (pictured at right)…that happens to promise rock hard abs in 20 days or your money back.
Whatever it is you’re doing right now, you’re not working nearly as hard as Lindsay Lohan does. Have you ever tried keeping your nipples inside the fabulous-but-revealing confines of a designer dress while simultaneously typing a text message, posing for paparazzi, trying to look sober, flirting with an A-list director and verbally berating your assistant? That sh*t ain’t easy and, for Lindsay Lohan, the assistance of narcotics are simply not an option. Watch her eloquently explain this to a very glib Matt Lauer:
