WELL THIS COULD GET AWKWARD…JEN ANISTON’S NEW MAN IS INVITING BRANGELINA TO THEIR WEDDING?
IS O.J. REALLY INNOCENT OF MURDER? A NEW DOC SUGGESTS THAT’S THE CASE!
Maybe O.J. SIMPSON really DIDN'T kill his ex-wife and her friend. There's a documentary tomorrow night on the ID channel about a serial killer who claims HE did it. The guy claims O.J. sent him to Nicole's house to steal back a $20,000 pair of earrings O.J. had given her. But he told him to KILL HER if she got in the way. His name is GLEN ROGERS, and he claims to have killed more than 70 people. He's currently on death row in Florida awaiting execution for the murders of two women. He's been linked to three other murders, and is a suspect in more than a dozen more. And two murders he confessed to were those of Nicole and Ron.
WILL LILO’S PROBABTION GET REVOKED?
A so-called "source" says LINDSAY LOHAN'S probation WILL be revoked as soon as she's charged with lying to police. That COULD mean jail time although no judge yet has thrown the book at Lindsay, despite NUMEROUS, perfectly reasonable opportunities to do so. Lindsay told police she WASN'T driving her rented Porsche when she slammed it into the back of a truck this past June. Authorities in Santa Monica are supposedly going to charge her but it hasn't happened yet. The "source" claims that as soon as it does, the judge in L.A. will revoke the probation Lindsay is still on for stealing that necklace.

IS THERE A ROYAL BABY ON THE WAY?
Is a royal baby on the way? Well, that’s the speculation, after a woman who claims to be a close friend of Kate Middleton’s told New Idea magazine that Prince William and Kate plan to make a big announcement next month. Jessica Hay, who went to school with Kate, said the couple plans to share their “wonderful happy news” in December.

SCOTT WEILAND IS ENGAGED?!
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer SCOTT WEILAND is engaged. His fiancée, Jamie Wachtel, is a photographer who he met on a video shoot about a year ago. It was love at first sight even though her first sight of Scott was of him with his GUT HANGING OUT. Scott says, quote, "I was leaning against this fireplace, and she's like, 'You might want to tuck in your belly a little bit.' It was after Thanksgiving, and you know how that tends to be. "I was kind of caught off guard . . . I started laughing and she started laughing. And I don't know something magical happened." He says they're getting married in the spring.
AC/DC HAS OFFICIALLY ENDED THEIR ITUNES HOLDOUT!
Their back catalog hit iTunes for the first time yesterday and several live albums and compilations are also available. That includes their new live album, "Live at River Plate", which just came out this week. Apple release a statement saying that all the songs were mastered for iTunes specifically with, quote, "increased audio fidelity." If you're a DIEHARD AC/DC fan, you have the option of purchasing all 16 studio albums for $100. For $150, you can get the live albums and compilations thrown in, too. Of course, you can also buy the albums and songs individually. A few years ago, guitarist ANGUS YOUNG said he thought it was disrespectful for iTunes to force artists to sell their music as individual tracks. Earlier this month, KID ROCK ended his iTunes holdout. He did it because, quote, "Times are different." At this point, basically everyone has caved in to Apple the biggest acts who haven't are GARTH BROOKS and TOOL. AC/DC is still withholding their music from Spotify. That's the new battleground with a list of holdouts that includes: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd and Metallica.

AND TURKEY LOVERS IN CENTRAL FLORIDA ARE PISSED TOO...
A day before Thanksgiving activists will send a message to rush hour motorists by hanging a GIANT banner reading “Holiday's are Murder on Turkey's” at the Interstate 4 overpass at Conroy Road. More than 250 million turkeys are killed in the U.S. every year—45 million for Thanksgiving dinners alone. Turkeys are protective and loving parents as well as spirited explorers who can climb trees and run as fast as 25 miles per hour. Made from hearty plant proteins and tasty spices, Tofurky is 100 percent free of the artery-clogging cholesterol found in turkey meat. Tofurky and other meatless holiday alternatives can be found at your local health food stores and Publix.

AND NOW, THE 5 WAYS TO SURVIVE THANKSGIVING…
IF YOU NEED A LAST MINUTE TURKEY DAY MEAL COSTCO HAS YOU COVERED FOR JUST $80!
If you're planning on going to the grocery store today to buy all of your Thanksgiving ingredients, you may be SCREWED. The stores are picked over, and it's not worth getting into a fistfight over the last box of sour cream-and-onion Stove Top stuffing. Instead, you might just want to suck it up . . . and brave a trip to Costco. They're selling a FULLY PRE-COOKED Thanksgiving dinner in a box. It serves eight to 10 people, and only costs $80. The box contains a nine-pound seasoned turkey, garlic butter green beans, maple glazed sweet potatoes, gravy, cornbread stuffing, and garlic mashed potatoes. It does NOT include pie. According to reviews, it's not delicious, but it IS surprisingly edible . . . and really IS enough food for 10 people. Plus, because it's pre-cooked, once you thaw it out, it only takes an hour and-a-half to prepare the entire thing.
HAS THE TURKEY-POCALYPSE BEGUN IN WISCONSIN?
Over the weekend, a turkey launched what COULD be a pre-emptive Thanksgiving strike. Although we can't guarantee it. It flew into a power line in Sheboygan, Wisconsin and immediately knocked out power for 1,500 people. Yep . . . one lone turkey made 1,500 people go dark. Most of them had their power restored within an hour. There's no word on whether the turkey survived. ( Sheboygan Press)
HOW LONG IS TOO LONG TO STAY WITH YOUR FAMILY OVER THE HOLIDAYS?
Millions of people will travel over the next few days, and that can only mean one thing: A lot of families awkwardly staying together under one roof. So how long is TOO LONG to stay with your family over the holidays? In a new survey, the most popular answer was four to six nights. One week was the second-most popular answer. But about one in six people say there's NO amount of time that's
too long to stay with your family. People picked the shower and bathroom schedule as the most difficult part of having the whole family under one roof. The second-most difficult part is relatives who ask too many questions. And finally, 70% of people say they'd rather stay at a HOTEL than with their family. But either because of the money or because of the GUILT, they end up staying at the house. ( USA Today)
HOSTESS MIGHT KEEP MAKING TWINKIES AFTER ALL?!
GOOD HOUSEKEEPING JUST RELEASED THEIR LIST OF THE BEST TOYS OF 2012…
TIMES ARE TOUGH MAN! THIS GUY IN GERMANY TOOK THE TERM ‘MOBILE OFFICE’ A SMIDGE TOO LITERALLY
His job involves a lot of traveling! A man in Germany was busted last week when police discovered an entire mobile office set up in his car! The 35-year-old man was pulled over for doing 80 mph in a 50 mph zone. When cops peeked into his Ford station wagon, they found an office on-the-go including a laptop on a docking station tilted for easy driver access, a printer, a router, wireless internet stick, WLAN antenna and an inverter to power it all. There was also a navigation system and a cellphone mounted to the windshield. Since there was no evidence he used the office while driving, he was ticketed for speeding and for having unsecured items in his car. Seems like he was really driven to succeed!
MNF RECAP: THE BATTLE OF THE BACKUPS!
It was the battle of the backup quarterbacks in the Bay on Monday Night Football as the San Francisco 49ers were forced to start second-year man Colin Kaepernick in place of the concussed Alex Smith, while the Chicago Bears pressed veteran Jason Campbell into service in place of the concussed Jay Cutler. Campbell was sacked six time - 5 ½ credited to Niners linebacker Aldon Smith – and in his first NFL start, Kaepernick threw for 243 yards and 2 touchdowns. Final score: San Francisco 32, Chicago 7. The only question left to ask after the game was whether the Niners have a quarterback controversy on their hands
ED REED’S LOOKING AT A ONE-GAME SUSPENSION FOR THE HELMET-TO-HELMET HIT
The NFL on Monday handed veteran Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed a one-game suspension for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders on Sunday night. The 11-year perennial Pro Bowler will sit out Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers and will forfeit his game check worth $423,529. Reed has appealed the suspension.
ANDY REID SAYS HE AIN’T GOING ANYWHERE!
The Philadelphia Eagles are down in the basement of the NFC East, suffering through a 3-7 season, but head coach Andy Reid says he won’t step down voluntarily, stating quitting on his team would be a ‘cop-out.” Reid has led the Eagles to 139 wins in his 14 seasons but this year he’s led them to six straight losses. Insisting he won’t step down, he said, “That’s not the way I’m wired. We’re going to keep battling and do it as a team. I’m not going to tell the guys one thing and then do the other.”
IS PLAXICO BURRESS GOING TO END UP IN ONE OF THOSE AWFUL BUMBLE BEE STEELERS UNIFORMS?
The Pittsburgh Steelers are apparently looking to a familiar face to possibly shore up a banged up receiver corps. Free-agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress is expected to pay his former team a visit, a league source told ESPN. The 35-year old pass catcher was the eighth overall pick in the 2000 draft and spent his first five seasons with Pittsburgh before signing a free agent deal with the New York Giants. He played for the New York Jets last year after spending almost two years in prison for illegal possession of a firearm. He has been sitting by his phone since the end of last season.
NBA ROUNDUP: NUGGETS SNAPPED THE GRIZZLIES STREAK & MORE

In San Antonio, Chris Paul led the visiting Los Angeles Clippers with 19 points and 8 assists in a 92-87 victory over the Spurs. L.A. has now beaten San Antonio twice this young season.

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR KYLIE IRVING’S GONNA BE OUT FOR A BIT…
Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving will miss about a month with a broken left index finger. The reigning rookie of the year suffered the injury Saturday night against the Mavericks. The former Duke star broke his right hand during a summer practice in Las Vegas when he slammed it in frustration against a padded wall. As a freshman at Duke, he suited up for just 11 games because of a foot tendon injury, and during his rookie season in the NBA he missed 15 games with a concussion and shoulder injury.
