Larry King Exits; Who Will Enter?

Larry King announced via Twitter he is leaving "Larry King Live" after 25 years on CNN. 

He did the announcement on Twitter by first saying "It's time to hang up my nightly suspenders."  King's ratings have been low but then again, everything on CNN has been low-rated.  His contract was up this fall and it was rumored it would not be renewed. 

King is taking the high road by saying it is his decision and nothing else influenced his decision.  King has told he wants Ryan Seacrest to be his replacement.

From what we hear, Seacreast and "The Views" Joy Behr are in the lead for the job.  CNN says they will need 2-4 weeks to make a decision on a replacement.

Keep Piers Morgan in mind.  For those that don't know who he is, do a search.

25 years at one job.  Larry King is only 76 years old?  I thought he was in his 80's easily.  What do you think?  Was it time for King to retire?-Dr.FB

Video~ Ryan Seacrest Talks About Adam Lambert’s Talented Tongue

Ryan, Ryan, Ryan. Last night, Adam Lambert was on American Idol as he mentored the remaining contestants.

Ryan was talking to Adam about mentoring and what he would perform and Ryan went there.  He said his tongue is not as talented as Adam's. 

Hmm.  One has to wonder.  How would Ryan know?

Very interesting.  Honest mistake or was there something else to it?-Dr.FB

Why I Did Not Cover Ryan Seacrest & His Stalker

Ryan Seacrest a few weeks back had a stalker follow him and seriously injured one of his bodyguards.  Less then a week later, the stalker showed up to where Ryan works at the E! building on Wilshire.  He was apprehended and arrested.  Turns out he was a lean mean killing machine that was serving in the U.S. Army.

So why didn't we hear about it on this web site?  Plain and simple, some stalkers are looking for attention for what they do.  TMZ and other web sites were posting the stalkers photo and his name, basically bringing him the attention he may have been seeking from Ryan Seacrest and the media. 

Back in the 90's, a woman broke into Brad Pitts house and would wear his clothes and was caught on camera.  She was arrested but soon after, because it was a so-called "hot" woman, she was appearing on TV shows and even had a web site promoting her and had an agent.  All of this fed into attention for her and celebrity. 

There are several stalkers of celebs.  The most recent one is Justin Timberlake.  The situation is scary but I feel by reporting on it and by reporting the name of the individual and giving him attention, you are giving him exactly what he wanted. 

I know in the end, I may have caused myself to lose several thousands of hits, and who knows how many page views, but I know in my heart,  I did the right thing.  I do try to keep you guys informed in the latest juice and all that is going on, but I could not write about in good conscious and I do really feel a lot of the media and other blog sites gave Ryan's stalker exactly what he wanted and I refused to do that.-Dr.FB

Lamar Odom & Khloe Kardashian: A Wedding Made For TV

A month to the day of meeting, Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom are married. Well..sort of.

The pre-nup was never agreed on, which was important to Lamar and could not be signed before the Sunday wedding. There will be what is called a post-nup. But why go ahead with the wedding if that is not agreed upon? The reason? E! Television was shooting the wedding and was footing the bill if they get married on Sunday.  Ahh. Television.

So, for intents and purposes, they were married last night. For legal reasons, there will be a post-nup and most likely a very small civil ceremony afterwards to make it legit, but last night will be what they will call the real marriage. Word has it they even conssumated the marriage at a hotel room last night in Los Angeles.

Kobe Bryant, Ron Artest, and Luke Walton along with other Lakers were in attendance. Joe Francis was in attendance, but the person he fought with ,and is Khloe's step-brother, Brody Jenner was not there.  Ryan Seacrest was there, who produces "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and I am sure would love for this to turn into another show.-Dr.FB

Forever Your Girl? Paula Abdul May Not Leave Idol

I am getting from VERY reliable sources that Paula Abdul is in last minute talks regarding a contract for American Idol.

Fox wants her back but they are apart on how much money per year. After Ryan seacrest's huge increase, you knew this would happen! Keep what you make on the downlow so your co-workers don't get pissed.

Paula is saying Simon misses her and it seems like her co-workers are pulling for her.

It could also do with a lot o polls saying they wouldn't watch Idol without Paula.

I will keep you updated.-Dr.FB

Paula Abdul Quits/Leaves American Idol!

Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul announced on her Twitter page that she is leaving American Idol as they could not come to an agreement on her contract with Idol.

Paula had this to say on her official Twitter page.

 

With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to #IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all..Cont'd…

I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent,but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day1become an international phenomenon.

What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me

It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month

I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all

That is some crazyness right there. They brought on the new chick last year n throw Ryan Seacrest a boatload of money. You knew that Abdul would not take a paycut. Wonder if this will effect the chemistry of the show.-Dr.FB

Is Ashley Tisdale Following A Trend?

It's the same story in Hollywood for decades.  Actor or actress wants to be a singer.  Singer or rapper wants to be an actor. The problem? Many of them are getting their wish.

I haven't listened to Ashley Tisdale's new CD (still bumping the future of 2010, Breakerbox) so I can't judge it. Miley Cyrus can sing so it opened the door for everyone and their sister to get a recording contract and get a CD out there. Demi Lovato on tour with the Jonas Brothers overseas earlier this year. Selena Gomez recording with Forever The Sickest Kids.  Lindsay Lohan had a CD out before too right? Hillary Duff as well?

Yesh. Surprised we haven't had a release from Zac Efron aside from High School Musical stuff.  If Ryan Breadcrust Seacrest gets a record deal, I am out of here.-Dr.FB
