Barbara Walters is interviewing her 10 Most Fascinating People tonight on ABC at 9 p.m. On her list of fascination this year are some not so creative choices, but that’s ok right? Tom Cruise, Miley Cyrus, Tina Fey, Will Smith, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Phelps and pregnant “man”/not a man Thomas Beattie all made the cut plus a couple others. Who’s the most fascinating? Barbara won’t tell but rumor has it it’s Barack Obama.

The estranged brother-in-law of Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson was denied bond yesterday in Chicago after he was arrested and charged earlier this week in the murders of three of Jennifer's family members.

And in more legal news...
OJ Simpson's lawyers have asked for minimal prison time for the litany of robbery and kidnapping convictions that OJ faces in the wake of his memoribilia heist. They asked OJ recieve 6 years in prison rather than the recommended 18. His lawyers told the press, "Simpson has never previously been convicted of a crime thus, he now stands before the court as a first-time offender." As E! News put it, "In the court, yes. In the court of public opinion, not even close."

One of my favorite shows is Lost. Yeah I know season 3 was kind of weak but season 4 was AMAZING and it comes out on DVD on the 9th. Here's a sneak-peek at the blooper reel!

NBC announced yesterday that E.R. will officially end its 15 season run on March 12th with a 2-hour series finale. Until then the speculation on George Clooney making a return will continue. I still don’t understand why he wouldn’t. I know he’s busy but he owes a lot, and I do mean a LOT, to E.R. I would view it as a character flaw if he didn’t come back for a final cameo. Dare I say?...Yeah, he owes them.

Turns out Jennifer Aniston isn’t tired of pregnancy rumors yet, she’s actually amused by them. This week a tabloid reported her and STAR Artist John Mayer are expecting, so I asked her how she felt about it. “Oh my God, it's hysterical. It's almost going to take away the fun from actually being able to say one day, 'I'm pregnant!’”

There’s a rumor floating around that STAR Artist Daughtry will perform at one of the inauguration balls for Barack Obama. If you remember earlier this year Daughtry performed at both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. Ya know, to be nice and fair.

STAR Artist Taylor Swift may be a platinum-selling superstar, but she's got very down-to-earth tastes. She tells me for her birthday on December 13th, all she wants is simple gifts, like stationery and a new pair of glasses. "Mine broke and I need them to drive. I've been, like, taping them, which is not the best look for anyone.” Taylor says she'll have a party for her birthday, but it'll double as a holiday bash for her band and crew - or, as she decribes it, "A year-end, you-guys-are-awesome party."
