It’s Thursday, at last. Remember last week when we told you that Sade’s album “Soldier of Love” had triumphed on the Billboard charts even though nobody buys records anymore and everyone who actually purchased her first record when it came out is now concerned with fine lines, wrinkles, and IRA’s (myself included)? Well color us tickled pink because it turns out the Lady SaSa has secured herself Billboard’s #1 spot again, for the second week. Bravo. (She beat out the rising-fast Lady Antebellum). With Oscars approaching March 7th, many, many eyes are on the megahit Avatar and apparently its star – Sam Worthington – already has his eyes on another potential blockbuster. Nor is this one blue, it’s got fangs. So move over RPattz, there may just be a new vamp in town. Apparently Aussie Worthington has agreed to play the latest incarnation of the very bloodsuckers audiences can’t seem to get enough of, in Dracula Year Zero. According to reports, the movie will mix legend with the real story of a guy called Vlad The Impaler. In TV news, they’re planning to announce the contestants for the new – 10th! – season of “Dancing With The Stars” next week during “The Bachelor”, but even before we get to that dramarama there’s another DWTS showdown going on – for hosts. As in, who’s going to replace Samantha Harris (who has opted to head elsewhere to pursue something, er, unclear). BUT: word is there’s more than one lovely lady in the mix prepared to do battle on behalf of that top job. With this in mind, voice your choice in today’s featured poll and tell us which of these gals you’d be most excited to see take over as co-host on “Dancing With The Stars”:
1) Brooke Burke
2) Paula Abdul
3) Melissa Rycroft
4) Vanessa Minnillo
