Brit Brit Addresses X Factor Rumors! Will She Be Staying For Season Three?!

Filed under: Britney SpearsX FactorReality TV

Hey! It may not be much, but at least it's better than a flat-out NO!

A flub or two aside, Britney Spears proved this week that she is MORE than capable of holding her own during the now-airing live episodes of X Factor, as she was willing to make a tough cut from her line-up of teens and provide thoughtful commentary on the other acts!

However, reports have already surfaced which claim that with the reality competition already facing budget cuts for next season, the pop princess may not be able to secure a pay increase, and therefore, would not be interested in sticking around!

Don't fret, though!

NYC Funds Refunded To LGBT Youth Center

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

Good!

NYC Mayor Bloomberg made $35 million in cuts recently and that money was taken away from several homeless youth organizations including the Ali Forney Center, which specifically caters to LGBT youth.

Thanks to several organizations around the country, in addition to Lew Fidler, Speaker Christine Quinn and the New York City Council, the funds have been restored!

Carl Siciliano, Executive Director of the Ali Forney Center, said:

"This news comes just a few days after Mayor Bloomberg released what many saw as a hypocritical video message to LGBT teens telling them that 'it gets better.'

These cuts would absolutely not have been restored were it not for the hundreds who have stood up and told their story. So, congratulations to all of you who have stood up and spoken up about who you are. This is a victory for all of us."

Amazing! Equality for all!

$20 Million For Tanning Grease, A Busted Weave, And Fake Tittays!

wenn2967082jb.jpg

Ha! We don't know what's more twisted - that this guy thinks that making her the face of his channel is marketable or that he's willing to pay her as much as he is to do so - not to mention at the expense of his employees!

Although she recently signed a two year deal with another television network, Channel Five boss Richard Desmond is reportedly attempting to lure Jordan AKA Katie Price over to them with a $20 million deal!

And insider reveals:

"Money is no object for Richard and he thinks Katie would be the perfect person to help kick start Channel Five in a new era. It's vital he relaunches the channel with a bang."

Price, being the smart bitch that she is, instantly realized that in no way, shape, or form is she worth that much and is consulting her lawyers to see if she can break her previous contract!

And we LOVE to hear that Desmond thinks that money is no object, seeing as he's due to fire a quarter of his company's 300 employees today to 'cut costs!'

UGH. So unbelievably fucked up.

Thoughts??

Holy shiz! If they keep it up, there won't be any effing family left!

Although they've already lost Balthazar Getty, Sarah Jane Morris, and Rob Lowe, Brothers & Sisters is apparently cutting yet another cast member!

The latest on the chopping block is little Miz Rebecca, played by that chick from Everwood Emily Van Camp!

Sources claim that she's merely being downsized due to budgetary constrictions, but others are reporting that she'll only appear in two episodes toward the beginning of next season before peacing out completely.

Sucks!

What do U think?? Are U sad to say good-bye to Rebecca??

The Sarah Silverman Program Cancelled

Filed under: TV NewsSarah SilvermanSad Sad

So sad.

The HIGHlarious Sarah Silverman Program has been cancelled after its third season.

It's been a difficult run for the Comedy Central series - producers Dan Sterling and Rob Schrab were forced to slash the show's budget in 2009 by more than 20%, and halfway through season three, it got bumped from its 10:30 spot to midnight!

We're disappointed, because we LOVED the show, but we know Miz Silverman will do just fine!

We can't wait to read your book, bb!

What do U think?? Will U be singing The White Dog Poop song in honor of the show's cancellation today??
