Talkarazzi!

1. We and the E! Network might stop talking about Heidi and Spencer. The hourglass has about run out on the Pratts’ vacuous run. Al Roker votes yea, but sometimes Speidi are fun for all the wrong reasons. So get your vote in on theblockfm.com and on eonline.com so to state your case before a final ruling is announced Monday night during E! News.

2. David Letterman threw himself under the bus and offered up a more sober apology to Sarah Palin, who accepted the Late Show host’s kinder mea culpa. Palin is SO good at making herself SEEM so important…seems she and the Pratts should have a pow-wow.

3. The next episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 will feature a “special announcement.” We’re thinking divorce, but isn’t that what TLC wants us to think? Won’t we feel silly when it turns out they’re just planning a trip to Mall of America or something.

4. A couple of cops in Ohio are being investigated for allegedly breaking into the home of the woman who’s carrying Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s baby in order to dig up tabloid dirt. For God’s sake, now the po-po’s are turning paparazzi?

6. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made for all sorts of good news this past week, as they donated $1 million each to a cancer center and refugees in Pakistan, and then Angie took to the airwaves to bring us up to speed on where she’s coming from with her humanitarian heart.

5. Chace Crawford is People’s Hottest Bachelor of 2009. Do you agree? There’s a picture on our blog at http://www.theblockfm.com …get your comments in.

6. Adam Lambert is really pissed. Adam Lambert has an album coming out — and he’s not happy!
A small record label called  Hi-Fi Recordings/Wilshire Records is releasing On With the Show, an album filled with material the American Idol runner-up reportedly co-wrote and recorded before his run on the hit TV talent show.

John Hecker, the CEO of Hi-Fi, says the the music is incredible — and insists that releasing the unofficial record is completely legal. “We would never put anything out that wasn’t fully owned by the parties involved with all the rights secured. We were really careful,” he said.

Lambert — who is currently working on his debut album with 19 Recordings/RCA records — does not condone the release. “The work I did back then in no way reflects the music I am currently in the studio working on,” he said.

“Back in 2005 when I was a struggling artist, I was hired as a studio singer to lend my vocals to tracks written by someone else. I was broke at the time and this was my chance to make a few bucks, so I jumped at the opportunity to record for my first time in a professional studio.

“I’m thrilled to be working with some of today’s hottest songwriters and producers and can’t wait for people to hear what my music really sounds like.”

Lambert’s debut with RCA Records is expected to hit stores this fall.

Giselle Buchin graced the covers of both Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar recently – to some of the mags’ worst sales!
Vanity Fair “sold only 280,000 single sale copies, the lowest total for the magazine in nearly two years,” while Harper’s Bazaar “sold only 132,000 copies, its lowest total of the year and its lowest since November 2008.”

Spencer Pratt’s sister, Stephanie Pratt, is on the cover of the new issue of Us Weekly. Claiming The Hills made her Bulimic because she was working with skinny girls

Even though both parties have kissed and made up, a quickly-expanding number of online protestors are petitioning for David Letterman to be taken off the air for his off-collar joke about Sarah Palin’s daughter!
Over 30,000 people have made the “pledge” on FireDavidLetterman.com to boycott the products sold by the sponsors and even organized a protest outside the Ed Sullivan Theater on Tuesday in NYC.

The social networking website MySpace announced Tuesday afternoon that they will be laying off almost 30% of their workforce, bringing their employee count to just 1,000 people.
According to their press release, due to declining pageviews and increased competition, the company will be returning to its “start-up culture.”

Forget Howard Stern … Jack White is vyying for the new title of King of All Media. Check this out: he’s appearing on Conan O’Brien on Thursday, June 18th with his latest project, Dead Weather. He’s just launched a record label with Third Man Records. And that tour he did with Meg that saw the White Stripes play every province in Canada? There’s a movie for that.
Talking with the Canadian Press, Jack White said that the film will “be much more than a concert film,” adding that “I think Meg (White) and I gave away a lot more than we ever would have imagined we would want to.”
“When we started, we just didn’t know what we were doing, so we just (said): â??Film everything, see what happens,”‘ he said. “I don’t think we would wanna film ourselves like this. I’m pretty anti-reality television and all that ridiculous peeking behind the curtain sort of aspect of entertainment these days.”

Sarah Palin VS. David Letterman

The Late Show is guilty of little more than a fleeting case of bad taste in its flap with Sarah Palin, host David Letterman said Wednesday night. Palin twice criticized Letterman this week over a top 10 list in which he joked about Palin’s daughter being “knocked up by Alex Rodriguez” and hit on by Eliot Spitzer. Seeming to willfully ignore that the jokes were clearly in reference to her oldest daughter Bristol, 18, Palin blasted Letterman in a statement over the “sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl” and even accused him of encouraging sexual violence against minors. “These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl,” Letterman said in a lengthy segment addressing the criticism yesterday. “Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was O.K. for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No.”

Letterman Uses CBS Internal Feed to Catch McCain in a Big Fat LIE

David Letterman vaulted himself into the headlines this week by mocking John McCain for canceling an appearance on his show only to show up on the CBS “Evening News” with Katie Couric. And in a classic stunt, Letterman showed the internal CBS News feed on his show to demonstrate McCain’s hypocrisy.


The New York Post‘s Don Kaplan reports that trick didn’t go over so well with CBS News executives:

Asked if CBS officials had a problem with Letterman using the internal news feed, a spokeswoman for “The Evening News” refused to address the issue.
But several CBS News executives – who asked not to be identified – said that the stunt did not go down well within the news division.
“If we had done something like that to him, someone around here would end up getting fired,” one said.
News officials found out Letterman was using the internal feed shortly after it showed up on an internal CBS feed carrying the “Late Show” taping.
“They were pretty aggravated,” a CBS News source told The Post.
“But they were not about to start a fight with Letterman,” the source said. “We’re in the middle of a heavy, heavy news cycle and Letterman is Letterman.
“He does whatever he wants and always has.”
