Resolutions of the Stars:
* STAR Artist Fergie says that every year, her New Year's Resolution is the same: to work out as much as possible. But in 2009, she especially wants to stick to her regimen, because she's planning to rejoin The Black Eyed Peas and hit the road for a big tour. She says, "I wanna make sure I [work out] on tour and I don't slack off."

* Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria Parker: "To give up meat."

* Actor Jamie Foxx: "I'm looking for the right woman. I need a magnifying glass. I'm trying to find that rare jewel."

* My Life on the D-List star Kathy Griffin: "To eat more carbs."

* Party animal Carmen Electra: "To have more fun."

* Actress Cameron Diaz: "I have always had the same New Year's resolutions: to stop smoking, to start wearing a bra and to stop shopping."

* Actor Brian Austin Green: "It seems to be to stop smoking every year. We'll see how it goes this time."

Speaking of Kathy Griffin...
In an odd-ish pairing for the New Year’s Eve countdown, CNN put Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin together. It led to…well…this:


We haven't seen much of Mad About You star Paul Reiser in recent years, but not because he's dead. Get this: the Wikipedia page for Paul was recently updated with the false claim that his body was discovered last Saturday in the "Squallahassee River," where he, "reportedly enjoyed fly fishing." It was easy to figure out that the statement was just a hoax, since there is no river named “Squallahassee.” The statement has been removed from the Wikipedia page. Ok so Paul Reiser isn't dead. His career on the other hand...

Missed Marley & Me last weekend? Still haven't seen Tom Cruise wearing an eye patch in Valkyrie? Now's your chance to catch up on these films and more, since there are no movies opening in wide release this week. Marley & Me, starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson, is the reigning box office champ, having earned over $36 million last weekend. Bedtime Stories, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Valkyrie also did well after opening on Christmas Day.

There are only 11 more days until the debut of American Idol season eight, and viewers are curious about how the new judge, Kara Dioguardi, will fit in. Well, it turns out she'll fit in between Randy and Paula, literally, at the judges’ table. They tried her between Paula and Simon, but Kara tells me, "They kept trying to communicate and I didn't want to be in the middle of that." So how is Kara fitting in? "The other judges are like brothers and sisters...and I'm like the long-lost cousin who they're not sure they wanted to see, but now they're like, ‘Okay, you can stay for dinner.'" She reiterated she is NOT going to replace Paula, "We have a good vibe...I'm not of the thinking that women should drag each other down." Idol’s back January 13th!

Speaking of American Idol...
STAR Artist David Arculeta is singing at the inauguration! No, not Barack Obama’s inauguration. Archie will actually sing the national anthem at the inauguration of Jon Huntsman, the Governor of his home state of Utah.

It’s like she’s talented or something…STAR Artist Taylor Swift’s latest CD "Fearless" topped the Billboard charts for a 4th consecutive week to end 2008.
