Today's News: Our Take


IT'S ALL SCHEDULING

FOR THE FANS

Janet Jackson thanked fans for being there "during the good times as well as the bad" at Saturday's Soul Train Music Awards, where the 37-year-old Boobygate star was honored with a career achievement award. "Your love and support has always been a great source of comfort," she added, "especially in these last few weeks." Jackson nearly stole the spotlight from the night's big winner, hip-hop duo OutKast, who won album of the year for Speakerboxxx/The Love Below and best video for "Hey Ya!" read more

PARIS IS HEALING

Paris Hilton was thrown from a horse Friday during production of The Simple Life 2 in Florida. The celebutante-turned-home-video star was airlifted to the nearest Barneys, er, I mean hospital, where doctors quickly determined that everyone had overreacted. She was released later that day. read more

SUNDAY

Inside the Actors Studio: Barbra Streisand
I make my living writing about TV, so I'm well aware of how hypocritical it is when I scream: She's just an entertainer, people. Talented, yes (though I can't watch or listen to her for more than a few seconds — and try to avoid even that), and her broad-spectrum arts achievements are undeniably impressive. But to watch Jim "The Bloviator" Lipton and this adoring crowd, you'd think she was about to lay hands on all of them before walking across the ocean to bring a working democracy to Iraq and rid the world of hunger and pestilence.

It's our shared duty to help Barbra. She'll never get over being so chronically enamored of herself if you don't stop first. At the end of two very long hours, I declare Streisand and Lipton's battle of affectation to be a draw. Ain't gonna be no rematch. Don't want one.

EXTREME SCANDAL!

The truth is out: Hottie carpenter Ty Pennington isn't really into fixer-uppers. The host of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has purchased a newly renovated crib in Venice, Calif., for $1.1 million, the Los Angeles Times reports. Built in 1924, the two-story nest boasts a fireplace (nice), bamboo floors (sweet), vintage windows (impressive), a laundry room with a sink (get out!) and a master suite with treetop views (must be nice). read more

LIZZIE QUITS

Hilary Duff's sitcom career is so yesterday. The singer-actress has backed out of plans to headline a comedy series this fall for CBS because, according to reports, the script was bad. That is so not a good excuse. read more
