Today's TWoP News: June 5, 2009

Today's TWoP News: June 5, 2009

It's a rainy day in New York City, Dave Matthews is playing outside my window on the Today Show, and Oprah is no longer Forbes' "Most Powerful Celebrity." This day just keeps getting worse and worse.

But wait! A delicious morsel of absurdity has entered the building. Audrina Patridge of The Hills recently donned a gold bikini and hit up the beach to film a new TV commercial for Carl's Jr., advertising the chain's Teriyaki Six Dollar (seriously?!?) Burger. If that's not making it big in Hollywood, I don't know what is.

Speaking of Hollywood stardom, I've always been a fan of Angelina Jolie, but I'm just not sure about that anymore now that she's stolen Oprah's two-year title of Forbes' "Most Powerful Celebrity." Apparently being extremely good-looking and a humanitarian and having a beautiful, ethnically diverse family makes up for the fact that she earned only one-tenth of what Oprah did last year. I'm just sayin'.

Comedy Central announced that Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando will take place in... Iraq. Oops, looks like the title gave that one away. Shows will be taped in front of an audience of troops for a week and will feature a bunch of important-sounding military guests.

Charlaine Harris, author of the books that inspired True Blood, may make a cameo on the show next season. I've never seen the show, but that sounds pretty exciting. Also on board for a new role is Evan Rachel Wood, who totally looks like she should be sucking blood, so I'm feeling good about that one, too.

Some twisted soul over at Fox has decided to create a reality show called I Married a Stranger in which a woman agrees to marry a man chosen by her family and friends. Added bonus -- she doesn't meet her future hubby until she's standing at the altar. These ladies' biological clocks must be tickin' damn fast to agree to this one.

Following the recent date swap, Primetime Emmy producer Don Mischer has announced more potential changes that will hopefully prevent the ceremony from completely dropping the ball like last year. The possibilities include moving some of the categories to the Creative Arts Emmys and taking on Craig Ferguson as host this year, although it is beyond me why any awards ceremony would choose someone other than Hugh Jackman.
