Rockin', Trespassin', and Suckin'

--As he did last year, Dick Clark will co-host the annual New Year's Rockin' Eve. The former American Bandstand host, now 76, will join Ryan Seacrest and musical guest Christina Aguilera to ring in 2007 before a national TV audience of millions. Clark missed the show two years ago when he suffered a stroke but returned to the holiday staple last New Year's Eve. Seacrest, the 31-year-old host of American Idol, handled co-hosting duties last year and is expected to eventually succeed Clark as the show's host. Clark originated the New Year's Eve program back in 1972. The only show he missed followed his Dec. 6, 2004, stroke.

--Powers Boothe has been elected vice president on Fox's "24." In the recurring role, he will play Noah Daniels, the No. 2 to new U.S. President Wayne Palmer (D.B. Woodside). Powers, who co-starred on HBO's "Deadwood," recently wrapped the indie "The Final Season" opposite Sean Astin.

--Reps for Brad Pitt are seeking trespassing charges against E! Networks after a producer and cameraman allegedly walked onto the actor's property in the Hollywood Hills last week. "Yes, we have filed trespassing charges against E! and are exploring our legal options against both the crew that actually trespassed and the network itself," his rep said.

--Mariah Carey's manager has fired back at reports the final date on the pop superstar's Adventures of Mimi tour was scrapped due to her diva demands and poor ticket sales. Concert Asia promoters posted a message on their website earlier last week, blaming Carey's backstage demands and a lack of interest on the cancellation of the Hong Kong show, which was scheduled for tomorrow. But her manager Benny Medina has hit back in an interview with Associated Press, stating his client didn't behave like a diva and made no wild demands. Medina, who formerly managed Jennifer Lopez, blamed the cancellation on the tour promoter's failure to pay Carey money that was due to her.

--Commuters at Grand Central train station gaped Sunday at a 1,502-pound pumpkin on display, the world's heaviest, according to organizers at the Manhattan transit hub. The pumpkin was on display as part of Halloween charity, and smaller pumpkins were sold to the public for $5 or $10 each, with proceeds going to the Food Bank For New York City, which feeds the hungry, said Karen Weber, a spokeswoman for Grand Central Terminal. (Shoot--I was there on Friday. It must not have been up yet.)

--Michael Jackson is planning to get married to his children's nanny. The singer recently settled the custody battle with his ex-wife, and mother of his two eldest children, Debbie Rowe, and is now free to get on with wedding plans, according to Britain's Daily Star newspaper. Jackson, 48, is currently living in Ireland with 39-year-old nanny Grace Rwaramba who his children reportedly call "mom".

--A copyright case concerning 50 Cent's 'In Da Club' has been dismissed by a judge. 2 Live Crew's Luther Campbell claimed that the rapper stole the opening line of 'In Da Club' from Campbell's song 'It's Your Birthday'. However, on Friday Judge Paul Huck ruled that the line of Campbell's song ("Go Shelia, it's your birthday") was a "common, unoriginal and non-copyrightable element of the song" which was not entitled to protection.

--Clay Aiken is about to enter a world of back-stabbing, scandal and diva fits and no, its not backstage at American Idol. Hes taping an appearance on NBCs Days of our Lives. The 27-year-old Aiken will perform two songs, one from his new album A Thousand Different Ways, and O Holy Night from his 2004 CD Merry Christmas with Love, the soap operas spokeswoman, Kellie Kulikowsky, told The Associated Press. Hell take the stage for a private concert for Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) at the club Dune in the town of Salem. The episode is scheduled to air Dec. 22. (They couldn't find anyone better to croon to Patch and Kayla? Ugh...)

--Rumor has it that Seventeen magazine wouldn't put Paris Hilton on their December cover unless she agreed to appear in a full-page public service ad against drunken driving.

--Bill Cosby continues to spark controversy...

-- Devon Aoki can do no wrong in the eyes of her dad, Benihana founder Rocky Aoki - even when it comes to guys. New York magazine reports that when Devon started dating 30-something Lenny Kravitz around her 18th birthday, "I say to her, 'No problem,' " Aoki said. "She says, 'He's half-black, half-Jewish.' I say, 'That's OK. That's America! I can't get away from the blacks and the Jews!' " The mag also credits Page Six for noting that Devon was "hotter than a Benihana grill."

--Shockingly enough, no one in New York wants to hear Kevin Federline rap. Our spies at Webster Hall say that so few $20 tickets have been sold for Federline's Nov. 4 show that "we may just cancel it. New Yorkers are clearly not fans of 'Popozao' [Federline's pathetic first single]." Britney Spears' hubby - who claims he is the most underrated person in Hollywood - should be used to rejection by now. His Cleveland show was also canceled due to lack of interest.

--Sources say that Nicole Richie passed out at Hyde nightclub early Sunday morning in Hollywood. It occurred just before 2 a.m., when Richie passed out and fell to the floor. An employee approached Richie and her friends and said he was calling 911. Sources say they told the employee not to make the call and that they would take Richie to a hospital. The friends then carried Richie out of the club through the back door.

You Said

Funny...I generally am in agreement with most of Cosby's "controversial" comments. I would have to add, however, that parents not being aware of their kids "activities" isn't just a black problem. Many parents in my "upscale" town are so busy working to pay for the 5 bdrm house and new Escalade that they don't keep track of their kids. As for teachers, there are good ones and bad ones and I appreciate the good ones BUT my complaint is the constant request for "assistance" and "volunteers" from teachers because, "it's YOUR kid". Hear me out; I spent 21 years in the military and never asked or wished for help from any civilian to do my job and "It's YOUR country" and I'm sure many other military members, cops, firefighters, EMTs and so on feel the same way. These people are overworked and underpaid as well but mostly they just want people to respect what they do and get out of the way and let them do it. Teachers knew in college what their pay would be and what the job would entail, so, all I ask of them is to stop demanding/whining for "assistance" from parents who usually have jobs to do as well.

This design is steller! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Howdy! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

Says: Barbara Hershey at April 24, 2012 05:20 PM

I am curious to find out what blog platform you're using? I'm having some small security problems with my latest website and I'd like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche. Superb blog!

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Whenever high-end custom made bags tend to be your lifestyle, find out more about Yves St Laurent gold hobo. This unique hobo seriously isn't your frequent laid-back hobo. It's always oozing along with fantastic magnificence and class. This amazing brown purse certainly will add in form to the dreary ensemble. Any brown shade is finished within a fashionable solution plus it certainly not nice at all. It's this unique confident complicated feel for it that I like. Them any bag i always would undoubtedly imagine all of the 4 Kardashian siblings would need initially eyesight. Yet, like most terrific get in style, all the Yves St . Laurent metal hobo doesn't necessarily appear low-priced and you will have to end up being happy to shell out $1795 to get it
