What You Missed: This Week in Pop

Oscar nominations are out and Bridesmaids was totally snubbed in the sound-mixing category. What’s up with that?







Demi Lovato is BACK in rehab after her ‘Skyscraper’ comeback and as co-host of MTV’s New Year’s Eve special (with the delectable Tyler Posey). Rehab is nothing to make fun of, but I hope that she and Kim Richards are able to keep each other company!

Demi Moore used whip-its, had a seizure, was rushed to the hospital, and will be seeking treatment for anorexia and substance abuse in rehab. Wait. Demi Moore likes whip-its?

Miley Cyrus ogled, licked, and held a knife to a large penis cake on Saturday, but don’t hate, she was just having a GNO.

Aaron Carter still isn’t over Hilary Duff. I remember his guest appearance on Lizzie McGuire like it was yesterday…

Toddlers and Tiaras star Alanna visited Dr. Drew on his daytime talk show and was reprimanded for drinking an inappropriate mixture of soda and energy drink. But who cares? A dolla makes Alanna holla and she’s laughing all the way to the bank!

Britney Spears has regained control of her finances, so expect lots of cheap wigs in the near future.

A Dwight Schrute and beet farm centric Office spinoff is in the works at NBC. If they add Angela and her cats in supporting roles, count me in.







Lasagna Del Rey’s album leaked Tuesday, prompting many to continue raving about how legendary she is. She is legendary in that she bombed on SNL and canceled a high-profile concert all before the release of her debut album.

Chris Brown and Ri-Ri are reportedly back together. No comment.

Kim Kardashian reveals that she prefers appetizers to entrees in the riveting season finale of Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

And finally, for all of you Housewives fans, Skinnygirl Bethenny Frankel is getting a six-week test run of her long talked about daytime talk show. Never before have sick elementary students and stay at home moms been subject to an alcohol commercial hosted by a woman who says “balls” a lot.
