During a serious segment about binge drinking on "The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet," the film inexplicably cut to a shot of who we've now dubbed "Spaghetti Cat" for a brief moment. We weren't sure if it was a mistake, but thanks to "The Soup" we saw the clip and laughed hysterically for about 10 minutes. A rep for Fox says, "What you saw was our new bleep photo. When someone says something inappropriate we're going to use something like that. You're going to see a lot more of those in the future." Hmm, maybe we'll start watching! Watch the clip from "The Soup" below. [Fishbowl]

Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesIn the Lohan family, it's been made pretty evident that father Michael is not wanted. He has also voiced disapproval of Lindsay's lesbian relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson, and apparently decided to move on to sponging off another famous kid.

business manager, David Levin, about getting her a beverage contract., a la 50 Cent's multi-million dollar success with Formula 50.
"I had [a] meeting with the Vitamin Water inventors and my investors last night," Lohan wrote in an email. "And that's where you come in . . . When we spoke, it was to attach Jessica as a spokesperson for the new vitamin-infused beverage line." An astonishing new low for the paternity-results-selling Michael Lohan. Reaching fame and fortune off your own brood is one thing, but honing in on someone else's? Papa Joe Simpson must be fuming.

Mark Mainz/Getty ImagesAfter all the celebrity ailments and premature passings this summer, we're happy to finally have some good news to report: Samantha Who! Star Christina Applegate has confirmed that she's made a full recovery from breast cancer. Yesterday on Good Morning America she spoke about her choice for a double mastectomy, despite only one of her breasts contained cancerous lumps. "I didn't want to go back to the doctors every four months for testing and squishing and everything," said Applegate. "I just wanted to kind of get rid of this whole thing for me. This was the choice that I made and it was a tough one."Read More »from Great news! Christina Applegate is cancer free
The the 36-year-old actress is now "absolutely 100 percent clear and clean" of cancer will undergo reconstructive surgery over the next eight months. "I'm going to have cute boobs 'til I'm 90, so there's that," she joked. "I'll have the best boobs in the nursing home. I'll be the envy of all the ladies around the bridge table."
The actress has always closely monitored the situation

Mike Flokis/Getty ImagesTry as you might, it's hard to find something wrong with The Dark Knight, this summer's biggest blockbuster. Heath Ledger's mind-blowing performance as the Joker, fantastic live action instead of the typical CGI overdose, even a great plot! Robert Downey Jr., the star of the surprising early summer hit, Iron Man, must be drinking Haterade!Read More »from Why so jealous? Iron Manâ€™s Robert Downey Jr. hates on The Dark Knight
"Didn't get it," he said, "still can't tell you what happened in the movie, what happened to the character and in the end they need him to be a bad guy. I'm like, 'I get it. This is so high brow and so f---ing smart, I clearly need a college education to understand this movie.' You know what? F--- DC comics. That's all I have to say and that's where I'm really coming from." Wow, we wonder if Marvel comics (home to Iron Man) have an old-standing rivalry with DC (Batman's residence), because this is crazy talk. Even kids understood the movie!
Saying something like, "that's not my idea of what I want to see in a movie" turns Robert into sour grapes.
Scott Gries/Getty ImagesAfter an action-filed weekend, I decided to have a relaxing night at home and order in a pizza. Come 10pm though, I found myself faced with a dilemma: I had nothing to do but watch the season premiere of The Hills. Below, five excuses for my embarrassing behavior.Read More »from Five excuses for why I watched The Hills premiere
1. No other good shows have started yet. Pretty soon I'll have Gossip Girl, Heroes and maybe some high-caliber new programs to watch instead on Monday nights.
2. The girls are so vacuous it's easy to forget the show is fake. There's no way that dialogue is actually thought out and written in advance. I don't think lovable ditz Whitney is even capable of memorizing anything.
3. I enjoy watching idiots. I know I'm not alone in being a terrible person who feels better about her own life from watching other people make bad decisions.
4. Okay, I admit it: I get sucked into the drama. Sure, Lauren "LC" Conrad is boring, but her feuding roommates, Audrina and Lo, still pack a punch. When Lo (the apparent new villain) doesn't

Who hasn't tried to explain the simple functions of a modern device (whether it's a cell phone, iPod or the internet) to an older relative and gotten frustrated out of their mind? This happens to me about once a week when my own dad asks me to remind him how to cut and paste. Ah, the generational tech barrier. [Mass Live]

New Fall TV is right around the corner and we are so grateful (reruns of Living Lohan have really become too painful for words). The one teeny problem: remembering where our favorite shows left off! If you're anything like us, you love TV on DVD marathons. No commercials, or even snack or bathroom breaks can disrupt that steady stream of a dozen or more episodes getting you back up to speed. One of our new obsessions, Gossip Girl, is available on DVD as of today (8/19) and we can't wait to relive the feuds between Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen and oogle the stunning fashions only an NYC prep school elite could afford. Sigh.Read More »from TV on DVD marathons: what new seasons are you prepping for?
Check out an exclusive clip from Gossip Girl below and prepare for the season premiere, Monday September 1 on CW.
Which shows have you been craving over the summer hiatus? (Hints: Dexter Season 2 is also out today and Season 2 of our beloved Heroes will be available next week.)

Whether you want to admit it or not, most of you ladies loved Titanic (The Dark Knight still can't beat it's #1 grossing movie record of $600 million). It's also highly likely that you'll recall the vehicular sex scene involving Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and a sweaty palm on a steamed up window. Well, the on-screen duo and off-screen pals tried to replicate their passion in front of the camera for the upcoming film, Revolutionary Road, but this time around the scene was rather awkward. Why? Winslet's husband, Sam Mendes, was directing!Read More »from Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio reunited for most awkward sex scene ever
"I just kept saying, 'This is too... weird,'" says Winslet. "And Leo was like, 'Oh, get over it.' And I'm going, 'Yeah, a little reminder: You're my best friend. He's my husband. This is a bit weird.'" Despite the fact that Kate suggested Leo as her costar, even her hubby agreed it was odd. "I will admit it was quite bizarre to direct my wife in how to make love. But it's difficult whether you're married to a person or not."

Lyle A. Waisman/Getty ImagesWe may never know what really happened between Jennifer Aniston and ex-husband Brad Pitt, but when it comes to her most recent breakup with John Mayer, at least one party is more than happy to oblige the public with answers. You know we're not John's #1 supporter, but his recent blabbering to paparazzi in New York makes us like him even less.Read More »from Wanna know why Jen Aniston got dumped? John Mayer tells allâ€¦ Jenâ€™s pals say heâ€™s full of it
At first, Mayer is full of kind words claiming, "Jennifer Aniston is the smartest, most sophisticated person I think I've ever met," and that "it's about time that somebody stands up for that girl and I think she's great." He says their breakup was "the most normal thing in the world - There's no lying, there's no cheating. There's no nothing" as well as spouting clichés like, "people are different, they have different chemistry, they have different lives." But did anyone notice how he accepted responsibility for the break up? "I ended a relationship to be alone because I don't want to waste somebody's time if something's not right."
Matthew Simmons/Getty ImagesWe're not sure 90s comedienne Roseanne Barr is even on the radar of power couple, Brad and Angelina, but she wants the world to know she thinks they suck via a blog post titled "Jon Voight" on her website.Read More »from Brangelina look out! Roseanne Barr hates you
"Your evil spawn Angelina Jolie and her vacuous hubby Brad Pitt make about $40 million a year in violent, psychopathic movies and give away three of it to starving children, trying to look as if they give a crap about humanity as they spit out more dunces that will consume more than their fair share and wreck the earth even more," says Roseanne. Not taking sides here, but we'd like to point out that no other celeb couple has donate some $15 million+ from the sale baby pictures to charity. Just saying.
"Miss Jolie says she likes [John] McCain too and hasn't decided who to endorse....huh?" continues Roseanne. "Aren't you supposed to be somewhat enlightened, or do you not know that the African daughter you hold in every picture had parents who suffered and died because of the
