Wow. Just, wow. AI-lovers, how shocked were you when Tatiana Del Toro made it to the top 36? Stranger things have happened—like, say, Norman Gentle/Nick Mitchell making the cut—but this is truly a sign that things just ain't the same in Idol land.

If I told you that it pained me to see over half of the Latino finalists get cut from American Idol this week, I'd be flat-out lying. I was thrilled to see these clowns get the boot! All that's left now are two boys who can really go far on the show—Jorge "I L-O-V-E Marc Anthony" Nuñez and Michael "Jason's My Big Bro! Vote for Me!" Castro—and...oh god...Tatiana Del Toro.

I know everyone has the right to their beliefs, but when I interviewed The Real World Brooklyn's Latino cast member, J.D. Ordonez, I was a little taken aback by what he said about non-English-speaking Americans: "It is my personal opinion that if you come to the United States, you

Still can't believe that Meadow Soprano and Turtle are a couple? Maybe this shot will convince you. Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrara, who met when Jamie-Lynn guest starred on the latest season of Entourage, engaged in their most intense moment of PDA yet at last night's CJ Free jewelry event in Beverly Hills.

David Archuleta's done it again! The American Idol Season 7 runner-up sold enough copies (183,000) of his self-titled debut album to land at #2 on this week's Billboard 200 chart.

Just as Grey's Anatomy was finally getting a little interesting, the show's execs have decided to ax it's most revitalizing plotline: the lesbian relationship between Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) and Dr. Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith). Luckily, Sara's character gets to stick around for at least the rest of the season, but Brooke is set to ride off into the sunset.

Salma Hayek would be proud. Just as the actress transformed Yo Soy Betty, La Fea into the Emmy-winning Ugly Betty, Justin Timberlake is setting his sights on a hit comedy from
