The week’s TV gossip and news – combed out of Sanjaya’s hair just for you!
It’s getting serious! An American Idol viewer goes on hunger strike until Sanjaya Malakar is kicked off. The viewer, only identified as “J,” posted a YouTube video and set up a MySpace page announcing her intentions to abstain from eating until “American Idol voters wise up, and stop voting Sanjya through each week.” Somehow I don’t think this is going to discourage Howard Stern or “Vote for the Worst” folks in the slightest.

All the rumors about Heather Mills and Paul McCartney’s bitter and rancorous divorce might not be entirely true. She reports that he sent her flowers to wish her luck with “Dancing with the Stars.” (Access Hollywood)
Fashion Week chooses fashion over decorum, bans Janice Dickinson. Fashion Week clearly hasn’t yet decided to participate in a reality show. (Reality TV World)
Have YOU gone to rehab yet? Jesse Metcalf from Desperate Housewife just checked in himself after drunken binge. I, personally, am scheduling my intake for next week. (E!Online)
Furonda Brasfield, from Cycle Six of America’s Next Top Model, is making her own run at coaching a group of young modellettes. She has started casting for “Model Me TV” which she says will feature “more instructional model knowledge rather than drama and catfights.” So far, no word on where it will be shown, and unless she adds some…ummm…drama and catfights, have to wonder if it will be picked up at all.
