A few days back, Jennifer Aniston said that she still believes in love. Now that she’s promoting her flick “Love Happens,” she won’t shut up about it. In this interview, Jen seems a little disoriented and we aren’t really surprised because love isn’t exactly Jen’s strong suit. The interview really deteriorates when the actress compares trying too hard in a relationship to selling a car. She then mixes metaphors and talks about going into a “rental” situation and compares a relationship to the structure of a house. The interviewer adds that he’d like an option to buy, presumably if “love happens,” and I start to wonder if I’m watching a home makeover show. Keep reading »
“People can have rhinoceros skin, but there’s a point when something’s going to hurt you. Not everyone is stone. I haven’t watched the news in weeks. I had to ask my chef, ‘How’s Obama doing?’ I haven’t read a newspaper…Now at least I know that I can step up to the plate and not crumble when I’m needed. When it comes to something like this that is so, so serious, so painful, so traumatic, I can handle it.”

“Ellen has such a beautiful body, and I personally battled with my own body image for years. I used to tell myself, You can’t wearing anything sleeveless or strapless. And all of a sudden I was like, What if I just didn’t send such negative messages to my brain and said, wear it and enjoy it? And now I’m more comfortable in clothes than ever …. [Ellen] was in her frickin’ bra with an open jacket and hot pink shorts, skating around the rink with red lips and … she was sexy as a mother … a feral creature. It was great.”

Fox has jut announced that they’ve found a replacement for Paula Abdul on “American Idol.” The new judge who will be sitting alongside Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, and Kara DioGuardi? Ellen DeGeneres. Ellen released this statement:
“I’m thrilled to be the new judge on American Idol. I’ve watched since the beginning, and I’ve always been a huge fan. So getting this job is a dream come true, and think of all the money I’ll save from not having to text in my vote. Hopefully I’m the people’s point of view because I’m just like you. I sit at home and I watch it. … I’m not looking at it in a critical way from the producer’s mind. I’m looking at it as a person who is going to buy the music and is going to relate to that person. I’m going to have a day job and a night job. The times we’re living in … we’re all doing that.”
So, Fox managed to find someone with greater STAR QUALITY than Abdul, but Ellen also has less — and it hurts to say this — of a musical background. So what do we think of this news? Will it make the show as entertaining? [DListed] Keep reading »
