1. Rosie O'Donnell Back on Primetime TV?

Former "View" co-host Rosie O'Donnell, who a while back was jettisoned from the broadcast airwaves, may be back on the Peacock Network in prime time.

O'Donnell's hit daytime talk show was on NBC from 1996 to 2002.

You may remember that back in 2007, NBC's cable outlet, MSNBC, was flirting with Rosie doing some kind of talk show. The deal never happened.

On her bizarre Web blog, O'Donnell claimed that MSNBC panicked because news of the deal had leaked out.

"2day there is no deal," O'Donnell wrote, adding "Poof . . . my career as a pundit is over before it began."

It's anybody's guess as to whether Rosie was referring to the cable network, shareholders of parent company General Electric, or some other nervous Nellie that panicked.

Sources indicate that NBC execs are once again talking to O'Donnell about producing a variety show of some sort.

Today's variety shows are typically variations on reality models like "America's Got Talent," "So You Think You Can Dance," and "Last Comic Standing."

How about one of these for Rosie: "America's Got Radicals," "So You Think You Can Rant," or "Last Kook Standing?"

2. Pamela Anderson May Be the Next Obama Girl

Hollywood's already overcrowded Obama Express has a new potential passenger who's trying to squeeze her way onboard.

Joining the presumptive Democratic nominee's glam parade of supporters is "Baywatch" belle Pamela Anderson.

Apparently the Obama girl isn't the only one with a crush on the Illinois senator. "I love him [Barack Obama]," Anderson gushed to The Associated Press.

So not only does Michelle Obama have to contend with her hubby exchanging

e-mails with Scarlett Johansson, the potential first lady has to deal with public expressions of affection from the actress whose last television show was called "Stacked."

"I think he's going to win," Anderson predicted. "I like that he's opening up conversations all over the world. I think he's smart and charismatic."

Evidently, Anderson has even thought about the attributes that Obama brings to the world stage. "I think he has a great message," she said. "It'll be nice when people like America again."

Then I guess, according to Anderson, people the world over will gush over Uncle Sam.

3. Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins on Hypocrisy Watch

Apparently Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins' concern for the underprivileged only extends to the less fortunate who live in neighborhoods other than their own.

The liberal pair resides in a chic part of Greenwich Village. Three blocks away is St. Vincent Hospital, which is purportedly in need of larger facilities.

The hospital is well known for giving needed medical care to the poor. The New York Post reported that the facility provides $40 million a year in care to the indigent.

Sarandon and Robbins recently appeared at a Landmarks Preservation Commission hearing in order to express their opposition to the hospital's expansion.

"Improving the hospital is a great idea. However, this can be accomplished without compromising the neighborhood. St. Vincent's should consider the proposed alternative solutions," Sarandon said in a statement.

In other words, help the poor, but go do it in someone else's backyard.

4. John Edwards' Scandal Ignored by Media

After the National Enquirer broke a story about former presidential candidate John Edwards' meeting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with his alleged mistress and the child they had together, the mainstream media proceeded to ignore the story.

Coverage of the incident continued to be noticeably absent from most major print and broadcast outlets.

Fox News did corroborate that Edwards was where the Enquirer reporters said he was at the time, and that the potential Democratic VP nominee was not registered as a guest at the hotel.

This is a man who ran as a serious candidate for leader of the free world and whose wife is bravely battling cancer.

Still, the mainstream media for the most part have remained mum.

Now the U.K. Sunday Times has broken the overseas silence on the Edwards allegations.

"Sleaze scuppers Democrat golden boy," the newspaper's headline reads.

"Gotcha: Senator John Edwards, whose wife has cancer, has been caught in a sex scandal that ends his vice-presidential hopes," the subtitle hits again.

Will The New York Times, The Washington Post, alphabet networks, and other major media players report the story now?

Caution: Waiting with bated breath for it to happen may result in oxygen deprivation, dizziness and potential fainting spells.

Is this the two Americas Edwards was talking about — one whose residents recklessly play around but don't get busted, another whose residents get pummeled in the media for the same activities but whose reputations are left at death's door?

5. Mars Cancels Mr. T Ad Over Nutty Allegation

In another example of special interest group meddling of the pc kind, candy bar maker Mars has had to cancel a Snickers advertisement, which was running in the U.K. and featured Mr. T.

According to the gay advocacy group, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the candy company pulled the ad after some "communication between the HRC Workplace Project and Mars."

The HRC Workplace Project issued a statement applauding Mars for taking "swift and appropriate action" in canceling the ad.

In the commercial, a man was engaged in speed walking, an activity that may sometimes appear to be deficient in the macho department.

Mr. T poked fun at the man, who was subsequently shot at by a Snickers cannon.

The last scene featured Mr. T proclaiming the Snickers slogan: "Get some nuts."
