Gossip Girl - Season 2
Hey, Upper East Siders, Season 2 of the CW's hit teen drama Gossip Girl is now on DVD shelves, and OMG! is it a great set.
The release includes seven discs of scandalous scenes, breakups and make-ups, and startling revelations.

(We won't spoil it in case you're playing catch-up.)
Glenn Beck has lost another advertiser.
Geico and Lawyers.com stopped advertising on Beck's show after he called President Barack Obama "a racist" on a July 28 episode of Fox and Friends. A spokeswoman for GMAC Financial Services told TVGuide.com on Monday that the company has "ceased to advertise on the Glenn Beck Program," though she would not say why.
David Letterman, Glenn Beck
It's been a big year for incendiary talk-show chatter. Sometimes a host gets viewers irate. Sometimes it's the guest. Sometimes that guest is even the president of the United States. Here's a look back at some of the comments this year that made people mad.
1) Who: Glenn Beck on Fox News' Fox and Friends
What he said: On the July 28th edition, Beck said President Obama has "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture." He added, "I'm not saying that he doesn't like white people. I'm saying that he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist."
The fallout: Geico and Lawyers.com have pulled advertising from Beck's show, The Glenn Beck Program.

But another former flame, 24-year-old Betheny Steffen, claims to Us that she slept with Ed before he returned two weeks later to win back Jillian's heart.
