Apparently Seth Myers didn’t make people tune out. The "Emmy Awards" had 15.6 million viewers . . . the "MTV Video Music Awards" had 8.3 million . . . the "True Blood" series finale had 4 million . . .
"Chelsea Lately” is done. On last nights series finale, Chelsea has a little help to sing a special version of "We Are The World." Gwen Stefani got the song. Also singing were Jeff Bridges, Fergie, Avril Lavigne, Leah Remini, Kathy Griffin, Tim Allen, Sammy Hagar and Alanis Morissette. Others appearing on the show: Ellen DeGeneres was the first to show up, confronting Chelsea in the shower asking why she was never invited on the show. Also Mary McCormack, Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock. Chelsea also welcomed her ex-boyfriend, rapper 50 Cent, to the show. Miley Cyrus performed a cover of Roy Orbison's song "It's Over." HERE IS A LINK TO THE VIDEO OF HER NAKED IN THE SHOWER WITH ELLEN
If you saw Sofia Vergara on the Emmy’s she is getting some heat over it. The bit had Vergara rotating on a pedestal during the speech delivered by Television Academy chairman Bruce Rosenblum. Vergara posed beauty queen style and drawing attention to her voluptuous figure. People are giving her trouble saying it was sexist and objectifying. Sofia says that was the whole point behind it. She is saying it was exactly the opposite. She said, "It means that somebody can be hot and also funny and make fun of herself." Vergara called the whole thing ridiculous, adding that whoever started the controversy "has no sense of humor and should lighten up a little bit."
Oprah Winfrey's been cast to play Richard Pryor's grandmother -- a cruel and abusive lady pimp in the Richard Pryor movie. Pryor's widow, Jennifer said Oprah got hold of the script, and was desperate to play Marie Carter -- the woman who raised Pryor in her brothel in Peoria, Illinois ... and who was known to beat him. Mike Epps scored the Pryor role. We're told Oprah really wanted to play Grandma Carter because she's anxious to show her gritty sideand let's face it ... there's not much grittier than an abusive grandma running a whorehouse while raising a kid.
LINDSAY LOHAN says she'd rather be in relationships with women . . . but she'd rather be in bed with men. A so-called "source" says, quote, "She prefers to be with women any day over men. Lindsay likes men for sex. She is definitely open about this. But when it comes to her romantic side, Lindsay loves women."
CHRIS "THOR" HEMSWORTH and CHARLIE DAY from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" have joined the cast of the new "Vacation" movie, which finally starts filming in September. ED HELMS (Hang Over movies) is playing Rusty Griswold, who's an adult now and taking HIS family on their own disastrous road trip. CHRISTINA APPLEGATE will play his wife, and CHEVY CHASE and BEVERLY D'ANGELO will cameo as their original characters. Hemsworth will play the husband of Rusty's sister Audrey, who hasn't been cast yet.
"TV Guide" is reporting that a "Full House" REVIVAL is in the works . . . and a lot of the original cast members are involved. In fact, everyone is down . . . except there's no word on Lori Loughlin, or Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. It's unclear how close this is to actually happening . . . but it sounds serious enough that it could be pitched to networks.
