What Happened?

The most fabulous four-pack to grace television and film have been hit hard by the photoshop wand. What on earth happened to their faces?

Halle and Gabriel SPLIT

Who said the Oscar curse doesn't strike the same winner twice? With two failed marriages already behind her, best actress Halle Berry (2002) has now broken-up with her "soul mate" Gabriel Aubry. The split comes as a shock, as the parents of Nahla, 2, seemed happy and secure in their relationship.

The duo met at a Versace store opening in Manhattan in February 2006. Deemed by some as America's most beautiful couple, the actress and her Canadian model-boyfriend welcomed their daughter two years later. The two are reportedly in negotiations to work out a custody agreement for Nahla. Halle once said that Nahla "needs a sibling," but it looks like she'll have to find a new baby-daddy.

Why do you think the couple split?

New Decade, Same Fears

The mask is back! It's been 10 year's since his last appearance, but Ghostface is back for Scream 4. Director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson are back to lead their acting trio of Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette right into the arms of the masked man. While it will be nice to see Cox and Arquette recreate their on-screen love, the mask will surely be making an appearance in my nightmares. Are you going to see the new Scream?

George's Lake Como Villa in Danger

My beloved silver fox had quite a scare as military experts have been called in to recover a deadly arsenal of unexploded wartime bombs in the waters outside his Italian lakeside home. George Clooney's Lake Como villa is just 14 meters away from underwater hand grenades, mortars and aircraft bombs.

In order to keep the paparazzi and the public out of harm's way, Italian soldiers have sealed off the area around the house while navy divers bring the 500lb munitions to the surface. After lying on the lake floor for more than 60 years, the explosives will be detonated in a remote cave.

UPDATE: Mr. Clooney himself spoke out about the drama at his villa, saying, "This is not the first bomb I've experienced."

Beehive Back-Up Plan

Fans were buzzing about Jennifer Lopez's beehive hairdo at the Paris premiere of The Back-Up Plan. Is she hiding baby Emme in that thing?

Louis' Bris

Sandra Bullock may not be Jewish, but that didn't stop her from giving newborn son Louis Bardo a traditional circumcision. Known as a brit milah in Hebrew, the tradition has been a cornerstone of the religion. Dating back to the time of Abraham, all Jewish men are required to be circumcised by a mohel (a person trained in the practice) on the eighth day of life. While circumcisions are regularly performed for all babies in hospitals, it is interesting that Sandra chose to go the Jewish route.

In the new issue of People magazine, Sandra opened up about Louis' January bris. The event took place long before Jesse's Nazi-obsessed mistress Bombshell surfaced, so he would have been there for the Jewish ceremony. The fact that Jesse attended his son's Jewish-style circumcision is a little suspect, given that pictures surfaced only months later of the motorcross star giving a Nazi salute.

"A friend of ours helped arrange for a bris at the house, because we couldn't go [to a hospital for the procedure] The mohel came to us. You have never seen adults more panicked about what was about to happen to their son, but the celebration and the amount of love we felt and the pride in the little man whom we love so, so much became the greatest moment I have ever had in my life."
It is so nice to know that Sandra is happy and has made peace with her family life. Little Louis seems to be bringing the actress bundles of joy. Congrats Mommy!

The End of Grey's?

According to recent rumors, one of my favorite medical dramas will soon be flatlining. Grey's Anatomy cast members are dropping as fast as their tragic patients, which the most recent casualties being Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo.

Following original cast members Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight's departures, the show has gone downhill. The story lines are getting old, the cases are getting more bizarre and the relationships have run their courses. Insiders say that Dempsey and Pompeo have deals through next season, but may not want to continue on beyond that.

While Grey's could pull an ER and reinvent themselves with a new slew of interns (paging Dr. Lexi Grey!), my guess is that the show won't survive without its golden couple. At least we will still have Private Practice to look forward to!

The Little Hills

The kids that brought you Little Jersey Shore are back for more, spoofing MTV's The Hills. My favorite parts include little Audrina's "ceiling eyes" and little Spencer carrying around a Heidi Barbie doll. What's your favorite part?

No Brush, No Man

Jessica Simpson obviously learnt many skills growing up, but brushing her teeth was not one of them. The 29-year-old singer/actress/designer admitted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she only brushes her teeth "maybe three times a week."
"Because my teeth are so white and I don't like them to feel too slippery but I do use Listerine and I do floss everyday," Jessica explained. "But I don't brush them every day. My lips just slide all over the place...I can't catch up with my mouth. I need a little coating..."
I think we can all now understand why Jessica has been so unlucky in love. Forget the reports depicting her as needy and insecure, the real reason must be unbrushed chompers. While she claims to "always have fresh breath," it just doesn't add up. What about the plaque and the build-up?

Jessica told Ellen that she is actively looking for her next guy by mingling privately, but I think she should step up her game and invest in a quality toothbrush. What do you think of Jessica's bold statement?

Jesse Speaks

Photo Credit: GSI
People Magazine must have paid a hefty price for these exclusive gems! Following Sandra's cover story announcement of her adoption, her soon-to-be-ex-husband Jesse James is speaking out about his marriage, baby Louis and the "huge hole" in his heart.
 "My whole life has been full of hard decisions. The decision to let me wife end our marriage, and continue the adoption of Louis on her own, has been the hardest. The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and hold has left a huge hole in my heart."
 "Sandy is the love of my life, but considering the pain and devastation I have caused her, it would be selfish to not let her go. Right now it is time for me to beat this addiction that has taken two of the things I love the most in life."
"I have always taken great pride in proving people wrong. That time has come once again to show that I am not what everyone says I am. I know in my heart that I can be the best father possible to my four children, and the mate that Sandy deserves, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb. But I believe that the steps I have taken in the last 30 days are the foundation for making this happen. The lifelong commitment I am making is what being a real husband and father is all about."
"I ask that you please do not judge Sandy for the things I have done. She has done no wrong. She played no part in any of this. She has been an amazing wife, mother, and best friend, for the over 6 years we have been together."
What an excellent statement. I'll bet that Jesse's PR person spent hours crafting this compassionate, remorseful and loving statement. While it doesn't change my mind about this cheating douche, does it change your perception of Jesse?

Sandra Bullock Shocker!

This is the last thing I ever expected to see on a Sandra Bullock cover, but the actress has adopted a baby boy!

In a People Magazine article titled "Meet My Baby," the actress reveals that she has been quietly keeping her joyful secret, Louis Bardo Bullock, 3½ months-old. While Sandra had a very tough time this year enduring the breakup of her marriage, little Louis has been keeping his mommy's spirits up.
"He's just perfect, I can't even describe him any other way," Sandra said. It's like he's always been part of our lives."
Sandra and her soon-to-be-ex-husband Jesse James began the adoption process four years ago and brought the New Orleans-born Louis home in January. The original plan was to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars, but the announcement plans were put on hold following Jesse's cheating scandal. Sandra has filed for divorce and is now finalizing the adoption as a single parent.

Congratulations and Mazel Tov to Sandra!

Munn Strips for PETA

Although PETA claims their newest spokesperson has been entertaining audiences around the globe, I cannot think of one major role that Olivia Munn has had. Aside from a small role in Date Night and a part in the upcoming Iron Man 2, this girl is more famous for taking her clothes off. This time, the beauty has stripped for PETA rather than for Maxim and Playboy.

Urging the public to boycott the circus, Olivia took her clothes off to further make her point. Not sure what nudity and elephants have to do with each other, but PETA's advertising campaign is effective. From Holly Madison to Khloe Kardashian and Eva Mendes to Alicia Silverstone, PETA needs nudity to break through the advertising clutter.

Check out what Olivia has to say about the latest awareness campaign.

Another Flower?

Judging from this photo of Jennifer Garner's bulging belly, she and Ben Affleck better start researching baby names. The duo with a penchant for flower monikers - Violet Anne, 4, and Seraphina Elizabeth Rose, 15 months - look as if they are expecting another child later this year. If the news is true, Ben and his childhood best friend Matt Damon could continue their Daddy and Me camaraderie. I, for one, would love to see another bouncing Affleck.

Foursquare Fashion

High-fashion footwear is getting the social media treatment. Luxury brand Jimmy Choo is organizing a real-time treasure hunt around London through Foursquare. The campaign is for their new line of trainers (sneakers).

Aimed at engaging the public and making their brand more accessible, Jimmy Choo trainers will check in at various locations while campaign followers document their every move. The social media savvy fans who are lucky enough to arrive at a venue before the trainers will get to pick a pair in the style and size of their choosing.

The campaign marks the Jimmy Choo brand's first foray into social media marketing. A rep said the she believes this is "the first time Foursquare has been used to check in an object (rather than a person) at locations." Interested in following the Catch a Choo hunt? Follow the shoes on Foursquare or on the campaign's twitter account.

I think the campaign is a great idea. The success of marketing and communications plans is now partly dictated by the campaign's success in the online world. While traditional media is still a very relevant audience, social media allows companies to speak directly with the consumer without going through a middle channel. What do you think?

I'm F@*king Matt Damon

Well, not me, and not Sarah Silverman either, but his wife Luciana certainly is. The actor announced today that he and Luciana are expecting their fourth child. Already dad to Isabella, almost 4, Gia, 20 months and Alexia, 11, who is Luciana's daughter from a previous marriage.

Called a "phenomenal" father by perennial bachelor and friend George Clooney, Damon is said to be "really happy" about the baby news.
"I used to have no life outside movies. I'd work all day, go to the gym and go to sleep," Damon said. But once Isabella arrived, "that was it for me and working out because I wanted to get home and see my daughter before she went to sleep."
Isn't that sweet? Congratulations to the happy couple.

And now, because a Matt Damon post would not be complete without it, enjoy Sarah Silverman's "I'm F@*king Matt Damon."

I Spy: Caterpillars

While a Lohan raising eyebrows is not uncommon, the fact that it's Aliana makes it a bit surprising. The 16-year-old sister of hard partying trainwreck Lindsay made an appearance at Millions of Milkshakes in L.A. sporting these caterpillars above her eyes. We all know that thick eyebrows are in, but Ali is taking the trend a little too far. The whole look is a little too Halloween for me - stick a witch's hat on her head and the costume would be complete. What do you think of Ali Lohan's new look?

Kicking it Old School

Diehard television fans still hold a spot in their hearts for the shows of the past. As any child of the 80s and 90s knows, watching family friendly sitcoms like Full House, Step by Step and Family Matters were the ultimate after school activities. While many of the shows' starts have faded into obscurity, a few of the bigger names are still floating around. Most notably, Full House's Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Step by Step's Suzanne Somers are continuing to make names for themselves. Which old school show was your favorite?

M.I.A 'Born Free' (NSFW!)

The internet is buzzing about M.I.A's newly-released extremely-graphic video for 'Born Free'. The video has already received widespread criticism and is so gruesome and politically-charged that YouTube pulled it from airing in the U.S.

Directed by Romain Gavras, the video shows U.S. soldiers rounding up redheaded men and boys and bussing them to the desert where they are brutally beaten and killed. Critics are assuming the short is a comment on the absurdity of genocide (M.I.A. lived through genocide in Sri Lanka) or a challenge to the idea of "other" in Arizona's immigration law.

What do you think about the intense video: does it reflect societal problems or is it too shocking for public viewing?

Gossip Fluent, Vitamize Frequent

The partnership between Gossip Girl and Vitamin Water has spawned short clips featuring memorable moments and recaps from the hit show. This unique marketing technique seems to be very effective. Rather than skipping past the short as if it is a commercial, viewers stop to watch it in its entirety. Yes, it is an ad, but it the content nicely mixes Vitamin Water in with original GG content. Vitamin Water win!

Serena was hoping to open the door in Palm Beach and find her estranged dad. Instead she opened the door and came face to face with her, are you ready for it? Mom. Surprise! What exactly is going on? Your guess is as good as mine. xoxo Gossip Girl

Ever wonder what the photo captions say at the end of the Gossip Girl theme song? I have a habit of pausing the show just to read the witty remarks from everyone's second favorite blogger. On the off chance that others share my guilty pausing, The A List will now be blogging the caption each week. Enjoy Gossipers!

Hollywood Icon Saved

The iconic Hollywood sign is safe thanks to Mr. Playboy himself, Hugh Hefner. After developers tried to buy the land behind the landmark sign, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger initiated a fundraising effort to save the land. After dubbing the sign "Hollywood's Eiffel Tower," Hefner's $900,000 donation put the effort to save the land at the sign over the top.
"My childhood dreams and fantasies came from the movies, and the images created in Hollywood had a major influence on my life and Playboy," said Hefner.
The completed $12.5 million fundraising drive to keep the property out of the hands of investors was raised through public and private partnership. The Trust for Public Land conservation group raised $6.7 million in private funds, the state raised $3.1 million and local funds provided $2.7 million. Schwarzenegger praised the conservation efforts and explained that "I did what the 'Terminator' was supposed to do, and that was to jump into action."
"It's a symbol of dreams and opportunity," Schwarzenegger said of the sign. "The Hollywood sign will welcome dreamers, artists and Austrian bodybuilders for generations to come."
Other famous donations came from Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and J. Paul Getty heir Aileen Getty. As Schwarzenegger said, it's "the Hollywood ending we hoped for."

Update: Hefner is getting major publicity for this donation. The Playboy empire seems to have an excellent corporate social responsibility advisor...

Music Monday: Airplanes (Part 2)

Airplanes (Part 2), released only one week ago, has quickly garnered huge waves of buzz across the internet. Released by B.O.B. (signed to T.I's label Grand Hustle), the song features Hayley Williams of Paramore and special guest Eminem. Have a listen and tell us what you think!

"Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? I could really use a wish right now..."

Today's installment of Music Monday is brought to you by up-and-coming public relations practitioner Shaun Dias. A fellow student of mine at Humber PR (and former anthro nerd!), Shaun has a knack for knowing "the next big thing." Chat with him on Twitter

A Baby for the Beckhams?

On their appearance on The View this morning, the Beckham discussed the likelihood of having another child. David's "maybe" was complimented by a sly smile, while Victoria said that they are "enjoying the boys, but you never know, one day." Come on, Posh - you must be itching for a little girl to dress!

Vada All Grown Up

Newcomer Anna Chlumsky played the title character in my all-time favorite feel-good movie, My Girl. While the spunky pre-teen stole hearts as a tomboy and hypochondriac living in a funeral home with her widowed father, she did not remain a mainstream Hollywood fixture. While well-known costars Jamie Lee Curtis, Macaulay Culkin and Dan Aykroyd continue to entertain audiences today, Chlumsky has been missing in action.

A Sunday night appearance at the opening of 'Promises, Promises' on Broadway brought Chlumsky out of the shadows and made me reminisce about my favorite childhood movie. Doesn't she look gorgeous?

Bret Michaels: Brain Hemorrhage

After confessing to fans that he was not feeling "100%," Bret Michaels suffered a massive brain hemorrhage on April 22. The rocker and contestant on the current season of The Apprentice has been under "intense observation" in the ICU.

According to a source, Bret, 47, called for an ambulance because he felt like he was "[getting] hit in the head with a baseball bat over and over again." This type of headache is referred to by doctors as a "thunderclap headache" because of the intensity and suddenness of the pain. Such headaches are a symptom of the kind of brain hemorrhage Bret suffered. The source adds that Bret still has the headache and is heavily sedated in the ICU.

Donald Trump, Bret's boss on The Apprentice, claims to be in touch with people at the hospital. Trump says that he is in "big, big trouble and the prognosis is not great." Bret's reps have not commented on this reports.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

The Ring is Off

After a month at a treatment facility to deal with "personal issues," Jesse James is facing reality. The douche soon-to-be-ex-husband of America's sweetheart Sandra Bullock was spotted in Los Angeles taking his children to school. The kicker? No wedding ring.

While Jesse originally kept the ring on following the reports of his affair, it seems he is finally ready to face reality and admit that his marriage is over. The allegations from his ex-mistresses, most notably Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, must have finally shown Jesse the error of his ways.

Sandra, who remained out of sight until earlier this month, is also not wearing her wedding ring.

Browns Celebrity Charity Edition

Canadian shoe giant Browns is rolling out all the stops for its Celebrity Charity Edition. The chain known for its designer collections and street savvy has garnered the support of famous Canadians to aid them in this year's social responsibility venture. The 36 celebrities featured in the magazine have chosen a Canadian cause to support. While there was certainly a bevy of famous faces to choose from, my favorite features are former Beverly Hills 90210-ers Jason Priestly and Kathleen Robertson.

Supporting the Nature Conservancy of Canada and Sick Kids Hospital, respectively, the kids from the most famous zip code of the '90s are back on their home turf. Look how glamorous they look in these shots. Jason has lost the boyish charm and is pure man now, while Kathleen has ditched the bad girl Clare Arnolds role and is rocking the old Hollywood look. I can't wait for season 10 to be released on DVD.

Featured on the glossy celebrity filled 42-pages are Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight), Coco Rocha (model), Jessalyn Gilsig (Glee), Shenae Grimes (90210), Rick Mercer (talk show host), Kelly Rowan (The O.C.), Dan Levy (MTV personality), Cheryl Hickey (ET Canada host), Nikki Yanofsky (singer), Jully Black (singer), Amy Jo Johnson (Felicity) and Emily Van Camp (Brothers & Sisters).

Dexter is in Remission

Michael C. Hall is cancer free! 

According to his wife and costar Jennifer Carpenter, the Dexter star is "fully recovered" from Hodgkin's lymphoma and has returned to work. Carpenter said that Hall was "incredibly" brave when he announced in January that he was undergoing treatment.

Hall won a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe award earlier this year for his portrayal of serial killer Dexter. The actor was also the subject of a Twitter scandal with the New York Times' fashion account, after a reporter made insensitive remarks regarding the actor's skullcap.

Hayden's Chop

Bobs may be in, but there is no excuse for Hayden Panettiere's cropped cut. The actress debuted the new 'do slicked back with sideburns pulled down in front of her ears. I haven't been following Heroes lately, but is there some story line that would require the cheerleader to chop her long, blonde locks off?

Frozen Treasures

Posh Spice and her fashionable boys took Beverly Hills by storm on Friday. The fabulous foursome - Victoria, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz - cooled down with some frozen yogurt. Soccer stud and father David Beckham was also on-hand for the mid-day treat. Any guesses as to what Romeo's BG stands for?

Final Fan Musings

Photo Credit: Dio Anthony
After hugely successful posts on why Ugly Betty is a revolutionary show, The A List would not be complete without a final tribute. The ABC prime time dramady was the first of its kind to deal with complex issues like low self-esteem, ethnic differences, teenage homosexuality, mourning, family drama and money troubles. While some of these issues are present in other shows, it was Ugly Betty that added class, comedy and emotional depth to these widespread, little-discussed, real life topics.

The cast was relatively unknown prior to signing on for the series. Breakout stars America Ferrera, Michael Urie, Becki Newton and Mark Indelicato have received widespread praise for their thought-provoking roles. Each character on the show had a complex history, making them personable and helping them to connect with a wide range of viewers.

The final episode brought the show full circle. Title star Betty Suarez (Ferrera) went from ugly to pretty on the outside, but her morals and sunny outlook remained unchanged. Flamboyant assistant Marc St. James (Urie) finally climbed up the Mode magazine ladder and found out that life is about more than playing games and capitalizing on others' pain. Airhead Amanda Tannen Sommers (Newton) finally cleaned up her act, found her long lost father, and saw her hard partying lifestyle settle down. And finally, Betty's nephew Justin (Indelicato) revealed he was gay and found love with theatre friend Austin.

If you haven't seen the show, I urge you to rent a few seasons and immerse yourself in the world of Ugly Betty. The show's characters are unique and you will come to view them as your friends. After all, who wouldn't die for a Marc St. James in their life?

FrankenHeidi Can't Eat

The living Barbie doll may finally be realizing that her new face isn't all it's cracked up to be. While sister Heidi and mom Denise try to make Heidi realize her deep psychological problems, the reality star continues to defend her drastic surgeries. As much as we all make fun of Heidi 3.0, it is very sad to see how fame changed her. Watch as Heidi attempts to eat a hamburger with her family in a new clip from The Hills.

While the typical Friday greeting TGIF conjures up images of a relaxing weekend for some, to me it will always represent Friday nights and Boy Meets World. TGIF was the slogan of the family-friendly prime time programming block on ABC. The slogan comes from the initials of the popular phrase Thank God It's Friday, but for viewers of the program, it stood for so much for.

When we were kids, television hours were sharply monitored on weekdays to ensure the completion of homework. We were allowed to choose one show per night and had to sneak in all of our other favorites. There was no online streaming back then, so kids were forced to choose between their beloved television friends.

Everything changed on Friday nights. Rules were thrown out the windows and parents were happy to have their kids piled in front of the television, entertained for the night. No longer did we have to choose between Sabrina and Topanga and Harvey and Corey - we could watch them all. While Sabrina the Teenage Witch was definitely a fan favorite in my house, Boy Meets World always stole the show.
Boy Meets World was a TGIF classic, running for seven seasons. The show focused on the events and everyday lessons of Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), who grows up from a young boy to a married man on the show. Other main characters include Cory's childhood love and future wife Topanga (Danielle Fishel), his best friend Shawn (Rider Strong) and his brother Eric (Will Friedle). Teacher and neighbor George Feeny (William Daniels) gave the show its heart and gave kids an image of the ideal high school teacher.

Honestly, there was nothing to hate about Boy Meets World. While the writing was obviously a bit lax and the subject matters were much more conservative than what we see in today's programming, Boy Meets World set the bar for me. It gave me a crush (Rider Strong), a couple to admire (Cory and Topanga) and a teacher to wish for (Mr. Feeny).

How amazing would it be if ABC ran a Boy Meets World marathon, complete with a cast reunion. I bet that every fan of the show would tune in to that. After all, with LOST and Ugly Betty gone, the network needs something to fill its schedule with.

What do you think of when you hear the term TGIF?

ECLIPSE is Here!

Sex and the SKYY

While their blatant product placements in the first film may have angered some viewers, Sex and the City 2 is now being praised for their forward marketing campaign. The series that made Manolos and martinis famous has partnered with SKYY Vodka to create an innovative and fashion-forward bottle.
"After the tremendous success of SKYY Vodka's partnership with the first Sex and the City film, there was no question that we wanted to continue our support of this lasting cultural phenomenon," said Bob Kunze-Concewitz, CEO of Gruppo Campari. "Sex and the City helped to defined sophisticated cocktail culture around the world, and that tradition will continue as SKYY teams with Warner Bros. to give fans another reason to celebrate friendship, fashion and 'cocktail couture' with Sex and the City 2."
The multi-faceted campaign is an excellent example of integrated marketing communications campaign, and SKYY was smart to latch themselves onto a brand firmly entrenched in luxury. The most exciting part of the campaign is SKYY's new spokesperson, Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field.
"So many of Sex and the City's most stylish moments have been when the ladies were out in Manhattan, dressed to the nines, bonding over fun cocktails," said Field. "SKYY Vodka has always been a brand with style, so I was thrilled to partner with them to create something special that celebrates those special 'cocktail couture' moments that truly are the essence of SKYY and Sex and the City."
The campaign elements include:

Advertising: Global co-branded advertising featuring print, broadcast, outdoor, digital and social media vehicles.

Celebrity Spokesperson: Renowned Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field will serve as spokesperson for multiple components of the SKYY campaign, as well as lending her design talents to several promotional elements tied to the film.

Limited-Edition Bottle: Field will design a limited-edition SKYY Vodka Sex and the City 2 bottle, which will be available at retailers around the world in May. This is the first themed design change to the iconic cobalt blue SKYY bottle in the brand's history.

On-Premise/Off-Premise Promotions: Sex and the City 2 promotions will feature SKYY Vodka cocktails inspired by the film, highlighted by a line of limited edition fashion and cocktail accessories designed by Field that will be available at bars and restaurants across the US.

SKYY Vodka is really pulling out all the stops for this campaign. I'll be sure to pick up a bottle and sneak in a martini shaker into the theatre.

LOST Predictions

Photo Credit: ABC/Florian Schneider/Bob D'Amico
With the end of LOST looming over our heads, everyone is weighing in how they want the show to end. This A-Lister has no definitive theory, but it will obviously have something to do with fate, regret and starting over. I'm sure the final answer will be more clear once we see what happens when our favorite losties all meet-up in the hospital during the flash sideways. I also think it will have something to do with hell, given the obvious purgatory references throughout the series and the symbolic imagery in the above season six promo shot. My one request to producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse: please, please explain the connection to Egyptian culture.

Some fauxlebrities (fake celebrities) have revealed their predictions:

"I've invested a lot of my life in the show. I hope I don't know how it ends - I'd be disappointed," said late-night host Jimmy Kimmel

"A volcano covers the island in lava, and then in 1,000 years they build an airport on the island," said The Insider's Chris Jacobs

"It makes sense they would stay. I'd give my left foot to live on the island with Sawyer!" said Vampire Diaries' Kayla Ewell

"It was all Hurley's dream when he dozed off while watching Gilligan's Island!" Greek's Gregory Michael

Proving that gossip truly does move at the speed of type, Lindsay Lohan is live-tweeting her intervention to the world. Her estranged father, Michael Lohan, apparently stormed into Lindsay's apartment with law enforcement agents in an effort to force his daughter to get help. Lindsay is obviously not pleased and is tweeting up a storm about the incident. Here is the latest:
