In 2004, when Jennifer Lopez made a guest appearance on ‘Will and Grace’, the show had to hire 75 assistants just for her, including an eyebrow specialist and someone whose job was to hold her coat (source). And that was to tape 5 minutes on a sitcom. A few weeks ago, she agreed to be a judge on ‘American Idol’, which is often 2 hours long and live.
Well, prepare for the shock of a lifetime, but when it came time to negotiate her ‘Idol’ contract, Lopez was being an unreasonable bitch. People says…
The singer-actress had been closing a deal to be a permanent judge on the show for its upcoming 10th season but the deal fell apart.
“Her demands got out of hand,” says the source. “Fox had just had enough.”
Oh thank god. No one likes this mean bitch. The media tells us people like her but it’s a lie. Anyone can tell people anything they want. For example: I’m a top secret rocket ship pilot, and I invented the panda bear. See. Just saying things is actually pretty damn easy.
(NOTE – everyone knows what Jennifer Lopez looks like, and no one likes it. Luckily UK model Sophie Reade strapped down her huge breasts and went jogging yesterday, so instead of JLo, there’s 50 pictures of Sophie, about 30 of which are her topless in magazines like Nuts.)

Conan O’Brien has had practice at this sort of thing because NBC tried to replace him with Greg Kinnear when he first took over ‘Late Night’ after David Letterman moved to CBS, but that’s probably little consolation as they scheme to replace him again, this time with Jerry Seinfeld. Popeater says…
With Conan O’Brien ratings slipping faster than Tiger Woods’ endorsement appeal, TV executives are telling me that informal discussions have started to occur within 30 Rock as to who would be the home-run replacement for the hysterical but sagging redhead. The name on everyone’s wish list? Jerry Seinfeld.
“NBC just can’t carry on like this. ‘The Tonight Show’ has lost 52 percent of its viewership in just one year. The November ratings will be the show’s lowest in 15 years. They would be idiots to not be having the replacement conversation,” a source tells me.
Aren’t these the same people who fired Leno when he was in first place? And then put him on at 10, on a show that is in last place by a mile every single night, thus giving Conan no lead in? Shouldn’t they be the ones who get fired? The shows on NBC couldn’t be any worse unless they got the girl from ‘the Ring’ to crawl out of the screen and kill the viewers.

You have to wake up pretty early in the morning to fool the CW. Those people are really smart. No one watches ‘Melrose Place’, but it gets press anyway because the cast features Ashlee Simpson and Heather Locklear. With this in mind, they just fired Ashlee Simpson. It’s like a well-played game of chess, my friends. TV Watch reports…
The decision to cut (her has always) been “the original plan going into the development of the show,” executive producer Todd Slavkin tells EW. “We felt that once the murder mystery [involving their characters] was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift … and her character would move on.”
Ah yes, the big murder mystery that no one has been talking about. I guess now that this plot line that no one knew existed has been resolved, there was no reason to keep around the character that zero people knew may or may not have been at the heart of it. Next they should change the name from ‘Melrose Place’ to ‘Lawn Care and You’, just to make sure no one ever hears of the show again, even accidentally.
