Without a new beauty or fashion line coming out and little buzz regarding her wedding (at the moment, any way), Kim Kardashian has managed to find a way to win back the spotlight. This time, it takes suing clothing retailer Old Navy for allegedly utilizing her likeness in an advertisement (seen above).
Aside from a few references from her reality show (i.e. dentist visit, paparazzi), the fact that the actress -- Melissa Molinaro, who is dating Kim's ex Reggie Bush might I add -- sings and dances in the ad ought to negate any notions of imitating the
talentless celebrity socialite. Maybe Old Navy just wanted someone who would actually walk her own dog and could do more than warm-up in a pair of shoes.
In all honesty, I feel like The Black-Eyed Peas have a better chance at suing for their likeness!

American Idol’s 10th finale opened with all due pomp and circumstance. Ryan Seacrest wore a tuxedo, but black tie was optional for everyone else. More than 122 million votes, a record number, were counted to determine whether Lauren Alaina or Scotty McCreery would become the next American Idol.
The year’s Top 13 performed “Born This Way” to open the night’s festivities, each dressed in white like angels. If only they sounded like angels. To call the number bad would be too nice. But the show would improve vastly from here...
In the year’s most highly-anticipated episode of Glee, the New Directions traveled from Lima, Ohio to the grand city of New York, New York.
The opening started with Times Square, larger than life with its lights and billboards. In the midst of it all stood Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) in her adorable striped coat. “I made it,” she breathed. And that’s how it all began.
American Idol kicked off the first installment of its finale shows with clips of past Idols and its two current contestants. The stage was set for drama, the Nokia Theater was packed with people and we were all ready to count the cowboy hats as the hour-long performance episode kicked off.
Ryan Seacrest called the battle “the boy next door versus the southern belle.” They are Idol’s youngest two contestants to face off in the final round. Both gained early attention from judges and fans, both are absolutely country singers, both want to win badly. Despite reports from TMZ that the finale might have been otherwise, Lauren Alaina was indeed ready to perform on Tuesday. According to the doctor that Idol trotted on stage, Lauren belted too hard in her rehearsal and blew out a vocal cord.
Think it’ll affect the voting? Doesn’t everything?
Jimmy Fallon’s surprise SNL appearance reprised one of the show’s iconic bits: The Barry Gibb talk show. Justin Timberlake co-stars as brother Robin Gibb, as always. Together, the two brothers don’t take any crap. Watch the video above from a distance of at least 5 feet. Otherwise, the chest hair might get you. Follow the jump to other shining moments from Saturday night…

We’re not sure why Saturday Night Live didn’t include this Mozart skit in the finale episode, but we’re happy they posted the video as an online exclusive. Watch it to see a hilarious dress rehearsal skit with Justin Timberlake, Andy Samberg and some of the other SNL regulars. There’s plenty of tongue-in-cheek references to Timberlake’s own career, each one more overt than the next.

Arguably, the Top 3 vote is the most intense of American Idol. The trio of singers is on the cusp of their goal, inches away from being a contender in the show’s big finale. The biggest vote of the season was recorded after the Wednesday performance round: 95 million.
But some of the voters would be disappointed, because one of the Top 3 would be sent home before Thursday came to a close. The only question was… which?
Watch SNL’s season finale host, Justin Timberlake, warm up his funny bone in the promo above. Cast member Andy Samberg joins him in the commercial, and TMZ reports that the duo will re-team for another musical number that will air on this weekend’s show.

Top 3 week of American Idol is always pretty big (for them). Each contestant goes home for a big celebration, with full rock star treatment.
And even James Durbin, who was eliminated last week, went back home to a hero’s welcome. But only Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are left to compete for votes. And of the three, only two will be a part of the show’s big finale next week.
The show snagged a superstar for Top 3 week: Beyonce. There’s no need to expound on her credentials; they’re too evident. She definitely has the knowledge to help the Top 3.
Just what Fox needs... another animated series. In this case, however, we're willing to think positive. You’ll have to wait until fall to see a whole episode, but for now Fox is offering this sneak peek. Watch the video above to get a glimpse of the animated version of Napoleon Dynamite. The series is based on the movie of the same name, and will have the same voices.
