Today's News: Our Take


Idol's Party Animal Speaks!

American Idol finalist Corey Clark — the dude Simon lambasted for partying the night before a pivotal qualifying round — has no plans to tame his wild image should he ultimately be crowned the champ. At the very least, he tells TV Guide Online, "I'm definitely going to be a little more fun than [AI's inaugural winner] Kelly Clarkson." (Justin, are you going to let him diss your woman like that?) We have to wonder whether the 22-year-old Nashville native was busy raising the roof the day Fox asked him to fill out its online profile, because he left half the form blank! What gives? "I didn't leave it [empty]," he insists. "I was never asked those questions." Well, we can fix that...
TV Guide Online: If you don't make it on American Idol, what will you do?
Corey Clark:
I will continue to try and record a demo.

INTRODUCING... J.AF?

Jennifer Lopez must really be in love with Ben Affleck. Rumor has it that the actress-singer-diva plans to adopt her hubby's last name when (or, if) she weds the Daredevil star. The story appears in the current issue of US Weekly, which means it probably isn't a story, but rather a caption to a really big picture. read more

WILL IT IMPROVE HER WARDROBE?

"Dirrty" girl Christina Aguilera has been chosen the new face of Versace. Good, because Donatella's rawhide complexion was beginning to give me nightmares. read more

GOOD GOLLY, MISS MOLLY

Another Saturday Night Live alum is getting her own TV show — and sadly, it's not Cheri Oteri. Molly Shannon has sealed a deal to star in the Fox comedy pilot Cracking Up. She'll play the mother of a crazy Beverly Hills family. (I like Molly, but I'm obsessed with Cheri — and I've got the restraining order to prove it!) read more

Trista's Ex-Bachelorette Beau Speaks!

Don't feel too sorry for Charlie Maher. The 28-year-old Hermosa Beach, Calif., hottie may have gotten crushed by Trista Rehn on ABC's The Bachelorette last month, but the financial analyst's heart has gone on. "I've been dating a girl for several months now," he tells TV Guide Online. "We're finally able to be out in public, and that's a big relief for both of us." Turns out, that's not the only thing Maher is looking to get off his chest...

TV Guide Online: I heard you were approached to be the next Bachelor. True?
Charlie Maher:
We had had some talks, but it really wasn't for me. I'm not sure I want to put my family through that or expose myself to that again. I'm the type of guy who wears his emotions on his sleeve in matters of the heart, and with the structure of the show, there might be 15 women left and you have to act like you're interested in all of them — when in actuality, I'm probably interested in two or three of them.

FAR FROM REALITY

Double Oscar contender Julianne Moore has signed on to star in the supernatural thriller The Forgotten, Variety reports. She'll play a grieving mother struggling to cope with the loss of her 8-year-old son — a boy her shrink says never existed. And you thought Dr. Phil was a troublemaker. read more

THREE FOR THE ROAD

The R&B group 3LW is a trio again — just in time for no one to care. Fifteen-year-old Jessica Benson has been chosen to fill the vacancy left by Naturi Naughton, who left in August amid a bitter dispute. Benson joins original members Kiely Williams, 16, and Adrienne Bailon, 19. read more

REJECTED BY AMERICA

Viewers left Fox's new reality show Married by America at the altar Monday night. The show's debut attracted only 8.6 million viewers, less than half of the 18.6 million that caught the premiere of Joe Millionaire on Jan. 6. read more

LOIS LANE FLIES SOLO

Teri Hatcher is ditching the man in her life — and sadly, I'm not referring to Howie Long. Citing irreconcilable differences, the former Lois & Clark beauty filed for divorce Friday from actor Jon Tenney after eight years of marriage. read more

Alan Jackson was close behind with six nominations. The ACM awards will be broadcast May 21 live on CBS. read more
