Movies hitting theaters today:
* Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa -- Alex the lion and his animal friends from the Central Park Zoo were stranded in Madagascar in the 2005 original. They now find themselves on the African mainland, where they get to interact with their own species. Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith return as Alex, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo. Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric the Entertainer, Alec Baldwin and The View's Sherri Shepherd also lend their voices. Rated PG.

* Role Models -- Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott are arrested and forced into a mentorship program, with both men struggling with their big brother roles. Rudd's Danny is assigned to a nerdy 16-year-old, played by Superbad actor Christopher "McLovin" Mintz-Plasse, and Scott's hard-partying Wheeler has his hands full with an unruly fifth-grader. Rated R.

* Soul Men -- Samuel L. Jackson and the late Bernie Mac play estranged former members of a '70s soul music group who are forced to set aside their differences during a road trip to a tribute concert at the Apollo Theater for their frontman, who has passed away. Singer John Legend and the late Isaac Hayes, who died on the same weekend as Mac in August, make cameos. Rated R.

The economy may have been a big issue with voters, but Heidi Klum proved her finances are a-okay this Election Day. She reportedly dropped $6,000 on lingerie at a Victoria's Secret in Los Angeles on Tuesday. As if we needed a reminder that her husband, Seal, is a lucky guy.

If you're an attractive young female celebrity, chances are you're eventually going to have to deny that you're preggers. Well for STAR Artist Taylor Swift, that time has come. She wrote on her MySpace blog the other day, “I read a very creative rumor this morning saying I'm pregnant, which is the most impossible thing on the planet. Take my word for it: impossible." Okay, okay we get it!

STAR Artist David Cook only showed signs of nervousness after singing on Saturday Night Live when he gave a big exhale but apparently he was really nervous before he went on. Like really nervous. Dry-heave nervous. But he did tell me he had a “Blast” and he got to party with Ben Affleck afterwards, so that’s cool.
