14 million people watched Saturday Night Live this weekend, 17 million watched the first half hour. And what did they see? VP wanna-be Sarah Palin. Yep, all the rumors and what I told you last week were true. She actually didn't do THAT much performing, but whatever. What stole the show was something Palin was “supposed” to do but "opted not to". The rap by Amy Poehler. I actually squealed with laughter when I watched it. If you missed Palin’s performance on SNL, here it is:

Fashion critic Mr. Blackwell, whose annual "Worst-Dressed" lists slammed celebrities for their fashion faux pas, has died. Blackwell passed away yesterday of complications from an intestinal infection. He was 86 years old.

Barbara Walters can breathe a sigh of relief, she won’t have to replace another co-host. Elisabeth Hasselbeck reconfirmed on Friday’s The View she is not leaving the show for Fox News.

I was able to talk to STAR Artist Daughtry about their upcoming album and from what he told me it was a real group effort. For their debut album, Chris wrote all the songs, not so much for this new one. The group told me, “We've been very experimental in how the writing process works -- we do it as a band, we do it as these two people, we do it with outside writers, plus the guys in the band. It's been a learning experience for all EIGHT of us!” Mr. Daughtry himself told me he thinks he’s doing the best writing he’s ever done. Look for the new Daughtry album the first quarter of 2009.

I wasn’t expecting one so soon, but no, STAR Artist Madonna and Guy Ritchie have not reached a divorce settlement yet. Between the two off them, they’re worth nearly $600 million.
