*Rosie O'Donell announced yesterday that she's leaving The View in June after only one season. Rosie said she couldn't come to a contract agreement with ABC--they wanted her to sign on for 3 years and she only wanted a 1-year deal. Rosie has been very unhappy lately and I think she just wanted out. She seemed like a different person yesterday--like a weight had been lifted off her shoulders. It's probably not fun to work for Barbara Walters!

*Speaking of The View, Alec Baldwin taped an appearance on the show yesterday and it will air tomorrow. It's Alec's first TV interview since the shocking voicemail he left for his 11-year-old daughter was released. Alec reportedly offered an emotional apology to his daughter and said he shouldn't have taken his frustration with his ex-wife out on his daughter. Alec also said he wants to leave TV so he can focus on his cause--parental alienation.

*A shocker last night on American Idol. Noone was eliminated! Ryan Seacrest said it was in the spirit of charity since it was the Idol Gives Back special. A record breaking 70 millon votes were cast this week and don't worry--your vote counted! This week’s votes will be added to next week votes and the bottom 2 will go home

*Welcome back Reege! Regis Philbin returns to Live With Regis & Kelly this morning after undergoing heart bypass surgery 6 weeks ago

*Rosie O'Donnell leaving The View? A report says Rosie may announce her departure from the show today, although she would probably remain on the show until the season is over. I will watch The View today and keep you posted!

*Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn back on? They had a sleepover! Vince stayed overnight at Jen's place over the weekend.

*It's elimination night tonight on American Idol--we'll find out who will be sent home and it's night two of Idol Gives Back with appearances by Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Bono, Pink and many more. It wasn't the same last night without Sanjaya!

*Heather Mills was sent home last night on Dancing With The Stars

*Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown finally named her new daughter. Angel Iris Murphy Brown is named in part after Eddie Murphy, whom Mel says is the baby's father. Eddie isn't so sure--he wants a paternity test.

*Speaking of babies and paternity tests, Larry Birkhead will be back in a Bahamas courtroom this morning because he wants to bring his daughter Dannielynn home to California. Guess who wants to block him from doing that? Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur. Who does this woman think she is? I'll tell you who she is--the grandmother! Or should I say the grandmother with dollar signs in her eyes! All of this fighting in court is just pushing Larry further away--to the point that maybe he won't want Virgie to be part of Dannielynn's life at all when this nonsense is resolved.

*Jennifer Lopez will be paid $50,000 a minute for an appearance! Nice work if you can get it! A Russian banker is shelling out $2 million for Jennifer to appear at his wife's 30th birthday party for 40 minutes. The guy is worth $5 billion so he can afford it.

*It's a special week on American Idol. Tonight is the first night of the two night event "Idol Gives Back," during which Idol will attempt to raise millions of dollars to benefit relief programs for children in extreme poverty in the U.S. and Africa. Tonight the 6 finalists will sing life anthem songs and the 2 hour results show tomorrow night will feature Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani and many others.

*Carrie Underwood spent some quality time over the weekend with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, celebrating his 27th birthday in Dallas and the pair looked very cozy. Witnesses say Carrie and Tony were smoochy-smoochy (how cute!) Meanwhile, Carrie is in a Nashville studio recording new songs for a new album and she'll be at Caesars Atlantic City on May 25 and 26

*New DVDs in stores today include Night at the Museum, Deja Vu and The Queen

*Sheryl Crow's weekend verbal political spat--Sheryl attended the White House Correspondents Dinner and things got heated when Sheryl confronted President Bush adviser Karl Rove about global warming. When Sheryl put her hand on Karl's arm, he said "don't touch me." Karl said "She came over to insult me and she succeeded." Ouch! Play nice kids! American Idol reject Sanjaya also attended the dinner and will read the Top 10 list tonight on David Letterman's show.

*Dancing With The Stars is on tonight. Airline passengers turned down an offer from contestant Heather Mills to dance for them. After the entertainment on a flight from L.A. to London failed to work, Heather suggested that she and her dance partner do their routine. The other passengers didn't think that was such a good idea.....

*Nick Lachey and Vanessa Manillo moved in together. Could Nick be a newlywed again in the near future?

*Gwen Stefani kicked off her Sweet Escape tour Saturday night at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. Don't forget--WAYV presents Gwen at Borgata May 27. You can get tickets at

*I guess Alec Baldwin won't be getting a Father's Day card this year. Alec left a scathing voicemail message for his 11-year-old daughter, Ireland in which he called her a "thoughtless little pig" and bashed her mother. I understand Alec is going through a nasty custody battle with his ex, Kim Basinger but don't take it out on a little girl who is caught in the middle!

*Guess who had a baby with her stepbrother? Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur! The son was born before Anna Nicole. Ewwww! That's like Greg hooking up with Marcia on the Brady Bunch! A custody hearing for Anna's 7-month-old daughter Dannielynn is scheduled for today in the Bahamas. I hope Larry Birkhead finally gets sole custody.

*Oprah asked Simon Cowell if he would have quit American Idol if Sanjaya ended up in the bottom 3. He said he would have quit, but then added that producers probably wouldn't have let him out of his contract. What will Sanjaya's next move be? He said he wants to do some acting and modeling and star in a Broadway show (Sanjaya: The Musical???)

*New movies opening in theaters today: Vacancy, Fracture and In The Land of Women

*Sanjaya was finally sent home from American Idol last night. We'll miss you Sanjaya! Also, last night Simon set the record straight about Tuesday night's incident in which he sarcastically rolled his eyes after contestant Chris Richardson offered condolences to the families of the victims at Virginia Tech. Simon said he couldn't hear what Chris had said because he was talking to Paula. His reaction was to what Chris had said previously, that singing nasally is a form of singing. I know Simon is a tough judge, but I knew that had to be a misunderstanding because deep down Simon is a good guy.

*The TV Guide Channel fired Joan and Melissa Rivers and replaced them on the red carpet with former Dancing With The Stars contestant Lisa Rinna (the one with the big lips.) Lisa will make her red carpet debut at the Emmys in September.

*Newly skinny Courtney Love says that exercise and diet – not gastric bypass surgery – helped her drop 52 lbs.

*Carrie Underwood is May's Cosmo cover girl. Can you believe this? Carrie says she ca't find a man because guys don't ask her out! Carrie is back in the studio working on songs for her next album.

*Britney Spears is blaming Paris Hilton for her downward spiral into rehab (come on, Brit, take responsibility for your problems!)

*Jennifer Garner said she doesn't want to miss a second with her 16-month-old daughter Violet. Jen said she feels like a "lovesick teenager" when she's away from Violet (ahhhhh!) There's another rumor that Jennifer and Ben Affleck are expecting baby #2.

*Posh Spice on Dancing With The Stars? Producers would love Victoria Beckham to be a contestant next season. Vic is reportedly considering it. The DWTS results show is on tonight--we'll find out who will get the boot this week.

*American Idol goes country this week. Can you imagine Sanjaya in a cowboy hat and boots? Martina McBride will be the guest mentor.

*Regis Philbin will return to Live With Regis & Kelly next Thursday, April 26 after undergoing triple bypass surgery nearly 6 weeks ago.

*Could Britney Spears be the future Queen of England? British bookmakers are placing odds on who will capture the heart of Prince William, who just split with his girlfriend. Odds of 20-1 are being placed on Britney. I don't think the Royal Family will accept Brit!

*Spiderman 3 opens on May 4 and Tobey Maguire said the hardest thing about playing Spidey isn't the hazardous stunts or long hours--it's kissing co-star Kirsten Dunst. Tobey explains
that during his infamous rain-soaked upside down smooch with Kirsten in the first film, he had rainwater running up his nose. Then, when Kirsten rolled back the wet mask, she cut off the air completely." That's some workmen's comp case!
