Katie Couric and Sarah Palin's morning showdown is nearly upon us: Who will YOU watch? -- POLL

Batten down the hatches, morning show watchers! A storm will be brewing tomorrow at precisely the same time as your cup o’ Joe. As we reported yesterday, Sarah Palin will guest host the Today show tomorrow morning. Elsewhere on the airwaves, Palin’s former nemesis Katie Couric, a beloved former Today anchor, will be in her second day of a week-long stint at Good Morning America.

Under normal circumstances, this head-on competition between two such charismatic and formidable figures is the stuff producers pray to the ratings gods for. Add to that the contentious relationship between the news anchor and the conservative political star, and now you have a full-on media event. Below, refresh your memory of Couric and Palin’s first encounter, then tell us which woman you’ll be watching. READ FULL STORY

'Titanic' shocker: 'My Heart Will Go On' makes Kate Winslet 'feel like throwing up' -- VIDEO

Near, far, wherever you are — don’t bother trying to serenade Kate Winslet with a certain Celine Dion ballad. The Academy Award winner told MTV News yesterday that Titanic‘s bombastic theme song makes her sort of seasick: “I do feel like throwing up” after hearing it, she said with a laugh. To quote another ’90s icon: That was way harsh, Rose.

In the interview, Winslet does manage to convey her annoyance without sounding spoiled or entitled. “I have loads of funny stories” thanks to the film, she explains. Either way, I can’t help feeling for the woman — imagine if people insisted on playing a Celine Dion song every time you walked into a room. (Well, any Celine song besides “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now.” That song rules.) Watch Winslet’s interview below. READ FULL STORY

Today in million-year-old feuds: Donald Trump kicks Rosie O'Donnell when she's down... and cancelled

“Rosie fails at everything.” This was the indelicate response from Donald Trump to Friday’s news that Rosie O’Donnell’s OWN talker The Rosie Show was cancelled. If you didn’t know any better you’d think it was 2006 all over again, as the dependably bombastic mogul called Fox and Friends this morning to relish in his archenemy’s shortfall. Trump said he “knew immediately” Rosie wouldn’t succeed and added, “I’ve said it for years. She’ll never make it.” He also snarked about the choice to cancel, “I always knew Oprah was smart.” Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY

'GCB' star Annie Potts blasts Newt Gingrich for hypocrisy

During a visit to The View today, actress Annie Potts star slammed Newt Gingrich, who earlier called her new show, GCB, an example of the entertainment industry’s “anti-Christian bigotry.” Potts began tamely, musing, “I don’t know what all the fuss is about.” But it took very little prodding from co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg to get her going.

Happy Gratuitous Kardashian Skin-Peddling Day!

Jon who? Though currently embroiled in the most important semi-feud between two ridiculously attractive people since Sarah Hyland made fun of Lea Michele that one time in September, Kim Kardashian proved that she was totally over Jon Hamm by tweeting a smiley picture that gratuitously peddled her own hams. “Can’t sleep tonight…” was the winking caption she put on an Instagram photo boasting an impish grin that totally suggested the opposite. Who looks that happy when they’re suffering from sleep deprivation? I’m going to guess that Kim got at least seven hours last night.

Upon further research, evidence has emerged suggesting that Kim’s tweet was actually — get this — promotional. You see, the long-awaited Kardashian Kollection lingerie kollection has hit Sears, and the super-skintastic ad campaign was posted on sister Khloe’s website yesterday. “OMG how fab is this new ad for Kardashian Kollection lingerie?!?” Khloe wondered. “Nothing makes me feel sexier, plus it’s all so comfy! Killing two birds with one stone! LOL.” READ FULL STORY

Jon Hamm assures Kim Kardashian 'idiot' statement was 'not personal'

Not a “Mad Man,” so much as a “Mildly Miffed Man” (doesn’t have quite the same ring, does it?). Jon Hamm has responded to the reaction from Kim Kardashian regarding a statement he made to the U.K. edition of Elle. “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” Hamm told the magazine. “Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly…. It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.” (We have no idea what he could possibly be referencing.)

Kardashian took offense to the statement and spoke her mind on Twitter, telling followers, “I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless.” (As of press time, there’s still no reaction from “Paris Hilton…or whoever.”)

So how did Hamm address Kim’s umbrage? Find out below.

Jon Hamm and Kim Kardashian have the most attractive disagreement in Hollywood

You’d think that by now Kim Kardashian might be used to this sort of thing. After all, the ubiquitous reality star has earned her fair share of criticism about everything from her 72-day marriage to her offensively exorbitant lifestyle to her family’s general terribleness. Having already been called a ‘f—ing idiot’ by Daniel Craig, Kim should have suspected that other classy, handsome Hollywood gents might feel the same way. In fact, in an interview with Elle UK Jon Hamm found the same words for her. (And Paris Hilton, for that matter. Remember her, you guys? Guys?)

“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” the Mad Men star told the magazine, adding, “Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly….It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”

Elisabeth Moss on ex Fred Armisen: 'The greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person'

It’s impossible to read Elisabeth Moss‘ revealing interview with The New York Post‘s Page Six magazine without hearing traces of Peggy Olson in there. (It’s also impossible to get over that revealing cover. Yowza. Game, set, point, Stan.) When the Mad Men actress opened up to the magazine about her painful divorce from Saturday Night Live and Portlandia star Fred Armisen, her surprisingly blunt statements about him sounded not unlike a well-executed Peggy remark at one of her male counterparts.

While Moss said her split from Armisen was “so hard to talk about,” the 29-year-old still got out one biting strike about her ex. “One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, ‘He’s so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person,'” Moss said of the SNL star who has mimicked the likes of President Barack Obama, Lawrence Welk, Joy Behar, Prince, and the late Muammar Gaddafi, adding, “To me, that sums it up.” Joan would be proud.

Donny Deutsch on Star Jones' return to 'The View': 'They ambushed her...It was cruel'

During a visit to The Today Show on Thursday morning, professional rich guy/television personality Donny Deutsch shared his feelings on Star Jones’ return to The View on Wednesday. While Deutsch and Jones were visiting the show to appear on their “Today’s Professionals” segment, he used the first few moments as a platform to talk about the uncomfortable View reunion.

“They ambushed her,” Deutsch said of her first visit to the show since her controversial exit from the talk show nearly six years ago, “It was cruel what [Barbara Walters] and Joy [Behar] did to her.” Deutsch continued, “I felt like I was watching mean girls in a seventh grade cafeteria pick on a vulnerable girl. They went at her… .I don’t know if they’re doing this for ratings…. I think they owe her an apology.”

Charlie Sheen finally cracks: 'I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck' -- VIDEO

You knew it was only a matter of time. Charlie Sheen finally stopped holding his tongue on the issue of his former sitcom Two and a Half Men. He called into TMZ Live yesterday and said bluntly, “I’m tired of lying. I’m tired of pretending the show doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending they’re not completely adrift.”

Moments later, Sheen clarified that he wasn’t personally attacking Kutcher: “I just feel bad for him. He’s saddled with such bad writing.” Admitting he had been watching the show, he added, “It’s kind of leaving your child behind with somebody and them not really taking good care of it.” Check out more of Sheen’s cutting remarks against the writers in the clip after the jump.
