Lunchtime Poll: Would any of you blockheads buy Charlie Brown's sad little Christmas tree?

For our final Lunchtime Poll before the holiday weekend, I thought we’d check in with Charlie Brown — the only person Linus knows who can take a wonderful season like Christmas and turn it into a problem. “Of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you’re the Charlie Browniest.”

In A Charlie Brown Christmas, after Lucy tasked him with getting the biggest aluminum Christmas tree he could find for the kids’ play, Charlie Brown instead picked a funny-looking hidden gem that was just like him: barely viable in a sea of brightly colored commercialism, sprouting just a few tufts of foliage in random directions, and in desperate need of a little love.

“Gee, do they still make wooden Christmas trees?” wondered Linus. “It doesn’t seem to fit the modern spirit.”

I’m sitting three inches away from my parents’ glorious so-fake-it’s-real Christmas tree right now and must admit I find it very alluring. (DANCMSTR Dee and Barnacle Bill have always understood the importance of maintaining a modern spirit.) But I think I would buy a sad little Charlie Brown tree for my own sad little apartment. I’d call it a “statement piece” and decorate it with lightweight tinsel fringe, a single strand of sequined caramel corn, and a gem-encrusted Dancing With the Stars bangle to support the “trunk” like Linus adorably did with his blanket.

“Everything Annie touches turns into a disaster,” my regretful visitors would say, and I’d nod solemnly and then press play on Dragonette’s modern-day Charlie Brown anthem on my iTunes. They may be right, but those commercial dogs are not going to ruin my Christmas.

Rosie O'Donnell vs. David Letterman: Whose monologue was meaner?

Rosie O’Donnell didn’t like what David Letterman had to say about her, or her fiancée Michelle Rounds, during the opening monologue on his show Tuesday night. But, rather than apply the old “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt” adage, O’Donnell opted to hurl said stones right on back. During the opening monologue of her show on OWN, O’Donnell criticized Letterman for his “loving, supportive comments,” when he joked, “The woman she is marrying, her fiance, was driving and her car broke down. And guess what happened? Rosie pulls up right behind her in her tow truck.”

After showing the clip from The Late Show with David Letterman to her audience, O’Donnell said, “Why is that Dave? Why? I don’t remember making fun of you when you had sex with all your interns! I didn’t do that. I didn’t make fun of your rampant, throbbing heterosexuality, did I Dave?” READ FULL STORY

OWS occupies 'Law & Order: SVU' episode. Where's Benson and Stabler when you need them?

While a large majority of Occupy Wall Street protesters don’t seem to take issue with celebrity support, visits, or participation in the movement, filming at their expense might be another thing entirely.

According to the New York Times, the filming of an episode of Law & Order: SVU was interrupted early Friday morning when more than 100 OWS protesters took over the downtown Manhattan Foley Square set, which was transformed to look like the camps in Zuccotti Park, the home base of the OWS movement, for an upcoming episode. (Can’t you just picture the scenario in which L&O: SVU gang stumbles upon the crime scene now? In my head the dialogue sounds a little something like this: “It looks like he’s occupying… the funeral home.”) READ FULL STORY

Alec Baldwin joins the pantheon of booted-from-planes celebrities... and leaves Twitter

It seems like celebrities being kicked off of airplanes is becoming as synonymous to air travel as those hard-to-open bags of peanuts, tiny bathrooms, annoying Captain spiels, and cliched jokes about the perils of flying.

On Tuesday, Alec Baldwin joined the growing list of stars who have been booted from planes. But Baldwin’s exit might be the best one yet, or at the very least, the most relatable considering a game of Words With Friends got him in trouble with American Airlines. The 30 Rock actor told his followers on Twitter, “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt.” (I like to imagine he was deeply immersed in a wildly competitive game with John Krasinski in which he kept using Yankees terminology.)

'A Bitchin' Christmas' music video featuring Nadia G in a red unitard: Recommended for Scrooges!

I only knew of Nadia G and her Cooking Channel show, The Bitchin’ Kitchen, in theory. So when I pressed play on this Bitchin’ Christmas music video — featuring What Not to Hair‘s Guy Fieri, Ace of Cakes‘ Duff Goldman, Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern, and Nadia’s fellow Cooking Channel stars Kelsey Nixon, Ben Sargent, Alie & Georgia, Vegan Black Metal Chef and the guys from Epic Meal Time (and it was made for charity!) — I had no idea the creature writhing around in a shiny red unitard and ’80s hair/makeup was the actual host of a cooking program. I assumed she was a video ho for hire, like Old Navy’s animatronic Kim Kardashian.

Is it just me or is Nadia G a pretty convincing pop star? I mean, really think about pop stars. Wait, no, don’t exert yourself. Watch the madness here: READ FULL STORY

Donald Trump to moderate Republican debate. Could they not get Ivanka? (POLL)

What the…? She’s so much prettier.

As if the presidential primary season wasn’t already playing out like a crappy reality show, Celebrity Apprentice TV star, wig model — and let’s not forget former presidential hopeful — Donald Trump will moderate a Republican debate in Des Moines on Dec. 27. Trump, whom President Obama has likened to a “carnival barker,” is pairing up with Newsmax to put on the debate, which will air on Ion TV.

No word yet on which candidates will accept this once-in-a-lifetime offer — or whether Trump secretly plans on firing them all instead.

I’m serious about Ivanka though.

In fact: POLL! READ FULL STORY

This Week's Cover: Stars' Worst Movies! We list the most embarrassing films A-listers ever made

Like you, we like movie stars. We flock to see their films, cheer when they win Oscars, and memorize their famous lines. But sometimes they forget to return the love, cranking out movies that are so god-awful we’re left slack-jawed, wondering how the hell the things ever got made. We’re not talking about high-profile trainwrecks like Ben Affleck’s Gigli or George Clooney’s Batman & Robin. We’re talking about the under-the-radar pieces of celluloid dreck that, more often than not, limp straight to DVD and quickly vanish into out-of-print oblivion.

For instance, did you know that Johnny Depp once played a horny teen in a sex-romp called Private Resort? Or that Sandra Bullock made sweet jungle love in a cheap adventure called Fire on the Amazon? Or that Brad Pitt played a lovelorn high school jock in a move called Cutting Class? If you did, then we salute you. If not, then boy, are you in for a treat. We went back and unearthed the lamest, most ridiculous films your favorite A-List stars ever appeared in — and we giddily share with you all the hilarious highlights. Such as how Paul Rudd, as a peroxide-blond in Gen-Y Cops, chases a robot through Hong Kong and utters the line, “Roseanne Barr Arnold will be the President of the United States before you two punks see the light of day,” and how Ryan Reynolds’ facial hair changes from scene to scene in a raunchy American Pie knockoff that’s honestly called Coming Soon.

Forget roasting, brining, or deep-frying. This Thanksgiving, we bring you 24 turkeys that are delicious all by themselves.

Derek Hough, you nasty!

The Dancing With the Stars pro took some time out of his and Ricki Lake’s freestyle in the season 13 finals to make sure he “still got it” with his signature Crotch Bob dance move (originally executed with season 9 partner Joanna Krupa). READ FULL STORY

Kat Von D alleges Jesse James had 19 mistresses during their relationship. Happy Monday, everyone!

Kat Von D took to her Facebook to write a message to her ex Jesse James, thanking him for his many indiscretions. (To be fair, Hallmark hasn’t exactly made a card for that just yet.)

In a message titled “Thank you, Jesse James,” the former LA Ink star alleges that a 19th woman has stepped forward and claimed to have had an affair with the biker during their courtship last year. “I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship. All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love,” Von D wrote regarding the latest bombshell.

Speaking of bombshells, the tattoo artist also made a point to remind everyone she’s not Michelle McGee. READ FULL STORY

Brad Pitt says he'll retire from acting in three years. (But we won't even be done watching 'Tree of Life' by then!)

Not even Harold Camping’s vision of the future could have seemed this bleak. In an interview with the UK’s version of 60 Minutes, Brad Pitt threatened claimed that he’ll retire from acting within three years.

When asked why was he ready to step down from being one of the biggest, most respected movie stars on the planet, the 47-year-old said, “I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together. And getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise … I have gotten away with a few things in writing and I have been pissed off about a few things. How’s that?” What’s he pissed about exactly? “Oh, dear God. I mean, come on. I’m gonna pass on that one.” (Listen, Brad, whatever it is that upset you, we promise to make it up to you. Was it this? We totally understand. But we’ll all get through this together!) See Pitt’s interview here. READ FULL STORY
