Entertainment news: South Park's Chef, Lisa Rinna and '80s music

Remember when you could believe everything you read in the newspaper? (Insert your own joke here.) Well, two stories that made headlines recently are allegedly untrue. Fox News is reporting that Isaac Hayes did not quit South Park due to a dispute with the show creators over Scientology. Hayes is recuperating from a stroke and did not release the statement attributed to him in the published stories, Fox News claims. Get the full story here: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,188463,00.html

The next piece of news involves Dancing With the Stars participant Lisa Rinna. Despite that the New York Post reported on page six that Rinna would replace Samantha Harris as the new cohost next season, it’s not true, according to E!Online. Rinna’s husband, Harry Hamlin, told reporter Kristin Veitch that Rinna has not been asked to host the show and doesn’t know where that rumor originated.

And finally, this doesn’t exactly qualify as “news,” but I’m noticing a cool, new trend on some of my favorite shows: retro music. Apparently, I’m not the only one who loves ‘80s music. First, Bones’ gorgeous David Boreanaz and his partner were rocking out to Foreigner’s Hot Blooded. Then, Ryan, Seth and The O.C. gang showed some Foreigner love when Seth hired a Foreigner cover band to blast Waiting for a Girl Like You. (OK, so Foreigner was more like the late ‘70s, but no matter.) Getting into the ‘80s spirit, my boys at Las Vegas, Danny and Mike, crooned a hilarious version of Ebony and Ivory. I’m sure you can guess which one sang each part. And Madonna’s Like a Virgin was blaring in the background in one scene, too. I love this trend. Somebody cue George Michael’s Faith.
