14, Big Brother – The long-running reality show has featured changes this season that has one blogger asking, “is this the worst season of ‘Big Brother’ ever?” I was under the assumption that every season of Big Brother was the worst ever.

Aniston, Jennifer – Since the Friends actress accepted boyfriend Justin Theroux’s proposal, several media members speculate that the Aniston-Jolie comparisons will finally end. Are you serious? Brad and Angelina recently announced in April that they’re getting married, and news outlets think the comparisons will stop? Do they actually read their own stuff?

Cyrus, Miley – Hannah Montana got her long hair chopped off, apparently following up on her old promise to “[throw] caution to the wind like British model Twiggy and trying a daring new look.” Whatever. Hollywood Records is probably having a drug test.

D’Errico, Donna – The former Baywatch actress suffered bruises and cuts this weekend after a fall while searching for Noah’s Ark in Turkey. She declined to head back immediately to the U.S. for medical attention because of the importance of such a search and the expense involved. Or maybe she didn’t really want to go back to work on shows like Celebrity Paranormal Project.

Lochte, Ryan – The Olympic gold-medalist has signed on to appear in an upcoming episode of the new 90210. His character will be a champion swimmer, so he’s probably playing Michael Phelps.

Swift, Taylor – The country sweetheart was recently banned from the Kennedy mansion, so she bought a $5 million home in Hyannis Port, MA, just across the street from the grandmother of Conor Kennedy, her boyfriend. Beware, Kennedys. Do not anger Taylor Swift. Just give her this grandson, and have another. It’s easier this way.
