It wasn’t a good weekend to be OJ Simpson. Exactly 13 years after he was acquitted of the murdering his wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman, OJ was convicted of various charges including kidnapping and armed robbery. He and a co-defendant could face a minimum of 15 years in jail or the maximum of life behind bars. OJ’s lawyer has already promised an appeal.

Here's the Complete Box-Office Recap from this past weekend:
1. Beverly Hills Chihuahua, $29 million
2. Eagle Eye, $17.7 million
3. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, $12 million
4. Nights in Rodanthe, $7.4 million
5. Appaloosa, $5 million
6. Lakeview Terrace, $4.5 million
7. Burn After Reading, $4.08 million
8. Fireproof, $4.07 million
9. An American Carol, $3.8 million
10. Religulous, $3.5 million

Misty May-Treanor may be bowing out of Dancing With the Stars. Over the weekend producers told me she had been injured and received immediate medical attention. She didn’t break any bones but I hear she will have to have surgery on it – she may have injured her Achilles tendon. If she does have to leave Dancing With the Stars, there’s a chance the bootylicious Kim Kardashian might return to tango some more.

STAR Artist Janet Jackson has postponed 3 more shows after becoming suddenly ill before her concert a week ago. She checked into the hospital but was released the same day. We still don’t know what’s wrong with her but a local doctor in Greensboro, where she was supposed to do a show, told her to go home and recuperate.

What’s the new season of American Idol going to be like with the new judge Kara Dioguardi? The judges table will go Randy, Kara, Paula and Simon and in the case of a tie during the audition rounds, Simon will be the tie-breaker just like he was when guests judges came in. Meanwhile I got a glimpse of what the backdrop will look like behind auditioners. It has all 7 winners on it but David Cook, Carrie Underwood and Jordin Sparks have the best pictures and most central location, probably because they’re having the most success. The winner with the tiniest picture and worst location? Taylor Hicks. Whoops!

In the most recent issue of Marie Claire, Lindsay Lohan admits she wants to follow in Angelina Jolie’s footsteps and adopt a child in need or from another country. If she adopts a child in need, the only thing the child will need is a new mom.

HBO announced today one of my favorite shows, Entourage, has been picked up for another season. We're only 5 episodes into the 5th season but it's official - the gang will be back as early as Summer 2009.
