Tragedy hits former American Idol contestant and Poehler gives birth

“In more bad news for Saturday Night Live – can it get any worse? – new mama Amy Poehler will not return. That’s bad, bad news for an already weak SNL. It appears that Pushing Daisies is getting yanked. That’s a shame, as it is actually a decent show with a good cast, interesting premise and clever writing.”

In more bad news for Saturday Night Live – can it get any worse? – new mama Amy Poehler will not return.

That’s bad, bad news for an already weak SNL.

It appears that Pushing Daisies is getting yanked.

That’s a shame, as it is actually a decent show with a good cast, interesting premise and clever writing.

Oh well.

In horrifying news, Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew were murdered in what is being called a domestic dispute.

The person of interest is the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister.

He’s on parole after serving time for attempted murder.

On a more pleasant note, Charlie Sheen and his wife are expecting twins.

Doesn’t it seem like only yesterday that Sheen was in the middle of a hideous divorce with Denise Richards?

Oh, how time flies.

This season’s Celebrity Rehab looks to be splendid.

I could do without Rod Stewart’s spoiled brat of a kid, of course.

When he first laid eyes on Amber Smith, he was fanning himself, saying something to the effect of, It’s getting hot in here.

Really?

That’s the best he can come up with?

Tool.

I’m not really sure why Rodney King is included in this rehab, though.

Sure, he’s a household name, but his lifestyle is totally different from that of his rehab peers.

But, I digress.

Gary Busey, as I predicted, is going to be the most fun to watch.

He is under the impression that he is some sort of counselor.

If you’ve seen him – or his short-lived reality show – you’ll understand why that is such an amusing notion.

I wasn’t really watching much in the way of TV over the past week, because of the World Series.

Which, might I add, my hometown Phillies won on Wednesday night.

Yay, Phils.
