Did you see Tina Fey as Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live? SO funny! Check it out:
Will Tina be back to reprise this role in future episodes? A source close to the network tells me it's unclear at the this time, "We are taking it day-by-day." Will she be back this Saturday? According to the same source they don't even have a script written yet.

Once again, Jennifer Aniston takes a backseat to Angelina Jolie. Jolie is named the most powerful actress in the world in the 2009 edition of the Guinness World Records, a title she previously shared with Aniston. Jolie's current partner and Aniston's ex-husband, Brad Pitt, is billed as the most powerful actor in the world, replacing Tom Cruise. The newest edition of Guiness also has some new categories:
Highest Grossing Movie Of a Music Tour
Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour

Highest Annual Earnings By A TV Talk Show Host
Oprah Winfrey, $225 million

Most Watched Current TV Show

STAR Artist Rob Thomas tells me he’s about 80% done with his second solo album which is tentatively titled "Cradle Songs" (no, it’s not a children’s album). Rob describes it as the “usual mish-mosh of styles.” Look for it in early 2009.

STAR Artist Madonna played a concert last Thursday in London that attracted 74,000 people, made $12 million and brought in celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Fergie, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman and Naomi Campbell.

Former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson got engaged over the weekend to a former contestant on VH1’s I Love New York 2.
