Love it or Hate it?
Who knew having Anderson Cooper fill in for Regis Philbin on Live With Regis and Kelly with Kelly Ripa would or could turn into a full blown media slugfest?

Never one to pass up the opportunity to talk to a celebrity mag, mamma lion Lohan fired back through Ok Magazine telling them that "People are just cruel! This is bad karma for him." To which Cooper responded on Anderson Cooper 360 (see above clip). READ MORE
We might as well start calling Ugly Betty "The Ripa Hour". On the heals of word from Entertainment Tonight that Mr. Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos, will be appearing in at least three episodes of the ABC hit series comes news from E! Online that Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will be making a cameo on the September 25th premiere of Ugly Betty.
Knowing how much people love their pets I thought it might make a fun "caption this" so take your best shot at it. I'm going with "That Darn Cat" after a great Disney classic by the same name.

Which sort of leads me to a fun topic for discussion.
If you could cast a current or former daytime star as the lead in a major movie, who would you cast? What about As the World Turns' Mick Hazen (Parker) as Harry Potter, One Life to Live's Kristen Alderson (Starr) as Hermione Granger and former General Hospital star Dylan Cash (Michael) as Ron Weasley? Now I just have to figure out who I'd cast as Voldemort and Dumbledore.
