New babies are a comin’ while O’ Brien is a goin’

 Welcome to spring semester, Blazers. With all the exciting celebrity news from last year, this year is sure to follow suit.
 But of course, we can’t forget the memorable events that wrapped up 2009. Baby boys  put the icing on 2009’s cake for both Kendra Wilkinson and Kourtney Kardashian in December. Wilkinson gave birth to baby Hank Baskett IV on Dec. 11 and Kardashian gave birth to Mason Dash Disick on Dec. 14. Both mamas are very excited about their babies.
 Of course, the late Brittany Murphy must be remembered after her unexpected death at age 32 on Dec. 20. Despite many rumors such as drug abuse and eating disorders, her death was declared natural, possibly a first in Hollywood. May she rest in peace.
 MTV’s hit show ‘Jersey Shore’ debuted Nov. 12 last year and has been receiving coverage ever since it first aired. From fights and fist pumping to hook-ups and headaches, this show’s Jagerbomb drinking Guidos raised more than enough eyebrows during its 10-week tenure on MTV. Tonight marks the end of the season, and I’m sure they’ll be going out with some sort of “bang.” One cast member is even rumored to be getting their own dating show after ‘Jersey Shore’ ends. Tentatively called ‘Snookin’ for Love’, leave it to Snooki to want her own romance-finding show. As if constantly putting herself in the center of attention on ‘Jersey Shore’ wasn’t enough, she wants her own place in the world of reality TV. How surprising.
 Another reality TV show star that has been in the spotlight has also been under the knife. Heidi Montag had 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, including a brow lift, Botox, nose job revision, fat injections in cheeks and lips, a chin reduction, liposuction, and breast and buttocks augmentation. Talk about being self-conscious. Rumors of plastic surgery addiction have circled, despite Heidi’s attempts at suppressing them. Her new look debuted on a cover of People Magazine this month. Maybe she should have had some kind of vocal cord surgery because her new album sold less than 1,000 copies in its first week. Ouch.
 Moving on, some good celebrity news involves a relief concert benefitting all of the victims in the Haitian earthquake disasters. Performers include Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Shakira, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Dave Matthews and Jay-Z and Rihanna will perform with U2’s Bono and The Edge. This concert and telethon will take place Friday on all major networks. It’s good to know that celebrities are willing to help out in such a time of need.
 The late night wars may finally come to an end this Friday with Conan O’Brien hosting his possible last episode of ‘The Tonight Show’ with rumors of Will Ferrell as a guest. While O’Brien is leaving NBC, he is discussing exit terms for himself and, being such a gentleman, he’s taking up for his staff too. So I guess Jay Leno will be moving back to the 11:35 p.m. timeslot. I thought the 10 p.m. timeslot was in Leno’s best interest for an earlier bedtime being that he is rapidly approaching 60. Hasn’t he made his millions anyway? O’Brien has a fresher take on things and has more to offer to audiences. Go to bed, Leno. Watch your successor in your PJ’s and be happy with your millionaire self.
 Not that he deserves a break, and he certainly can’t catch one, Tiger Woods has managed to make headlines once again. According to ESPN, he is now receiving treatment for sex addiction at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services Center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. If there are services there for addiction to cheating on your wife, maybe he should sign that list, too.
 I’m sure there’s a lot more to be discussed, but there is only so much space in the newspaper. So, until next week, I hope this satisfies your addiction. If not, follow in Tiger’s paw prints to the nearest clinic.
