While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Jennifer Hudson currently appears to be in the business of being fit: The actress/singer, who's also working on a memoir about her weight loss, opened her own Weight Watchers weight loss center - literally; it's called the Weight Watchers Jennifer Hudson Center - in Chicago today. [GossipCop]
  • Moving on to a different Jennifer, this time Aniston. When asked about that Brad Pitt fiasco at the premiere of her Lifetime movie "Five," she (smartly) responded, "It's not even worth discussing on a night like this." Good on ya, Jen. [Access Hollywood]
  • The millions reportedly shelled out for Fox's "Terra Nova" didn't bring millions upon millions of viewers in return. Ratings are in, and the new series was watched by 9 million while 20 million ran over to CBS to see Ashton Kutcher on "Two and a Half Men." [Washington Post]
  • Thankfully for those of you with "Housewives" addiction, Bravo will never let you go long without your fix. Yet another season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is ready to make its bow on November 6 at 10 p.m. ET. Sneak peek at the link. [People]
  • "SNL" stars Fred Armisen and Abby Elliott have reportedly called it quits, which, if true, just may make things awkward at work. This is why you break-up with your co-worker right around the time you move on to another gig, guys. [Perez Hilton]

Kim Kardashian voted most annoying celeb

Judging by how negatively people react to the name "Kim Kardashian" anywhere in a headline, let alone in a sentence, Parade magazine's 2011 Culture Poll results aren't that surprising.

The recently wed Kardashian was pitted against "The Bachelor's" Brad Womack, Donald Trump, Lindsay Lohan, Snooki and Charlie Sheen for the title, but she landed in the top spot with 29 percent of the vote. Sheen, however, wasn't far behind, with 27 percent nominating him as the most annoying star.

Sheen was followed by Snooki (with 21 percent), Lindsay Lohan (16 percent), Donald Trump (5 percent) and Brad Womack (1 percent).

And perhaps Jennifer Lopez should've thought a little longer about returning to "American Idol" - 40 percent of those polled think J.Lo's the most replaceable judge. (They weren't particularly kind to Steven Tyler, either, who was right behind Lopez with 36 percent.)

'SYTYCD' back on tour with a new format

The top 10 performers from Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" are once again on tour this fall (Tuesday night's stop is Boston, and Thursday's will be Providence, Rhode Island), but the show has had some pretty major changes from years past.

"I remember during the season 4 tour, [and] there was a lot of talking and stopping [between routines]," jazz dancer Clarice Ordaz told CNN. "There's nothing wrong with that, but it's a dance show. I think this year we have 50 routines, which is the most we've ever had. So far, we've had really good reactions."

With such a large number of routines and a faster pace, the dancers are being challenged more than ever before.

Everyone’s a Critic: Juggling judges

Last week saw the highly anticipated debut of “X Factor,” the latest entry into the singing competition genre.

The two-hour premiere gave us talent, drama, tears… and five judges?!?

Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid are filling three of the four judges’ chairs. The fourth seat was originally intended for U.K. singer Cheryl Cole. She was dropped during the show’s audition rounds and replaced by singer Nicole Scherzinger.

'L Word' actress: I wasn't making out on flight

Leisha Hailey and her girlfriend Camila Grey would like to make one thing clear: They were not making out on the Southwest flight the pair say they were booted from.

The couple released a statement through their band, Uh Huh Her, to clarify the incident, which happened on Monday.

"In no way were our actions on Southwest Airlines excessive, inappropriate or vulgar," the statement said. "We want to make it clear we were not making out or creating any kind of spectacle of ourselves, it was one, modest kiss. We are responsible adult women who walk through the world with dignity."
