Handler has a celebrity twin

Actress Elizabeth Banks gets mistaken for comedian Chelsea Handler pretty often — and she sometimes doesn’t correct people. “A guy walked up to me and said, ‘I just love your books. I mean, ‘My Horizontal Life.’ … I was like, ‘Oh, he thinks he’s meeting Chelsea Handler.’ I couldn’t ruin it for him!” the actress said during a visit to Handler’s talk show. “I was like, ‘It’s nice to meet you.’ I was just hanging out, being Chelsea, drinking my vodka and having a good time. He couldn’t have been happier.”

No new judges for ‘Idol’

Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson aren’t going anywhere.

The trio of judges will continue to banter, critique and praise another round of wannabe superstars in the 11th season of “American Idol.” “Having both Jennifer and Steven return to ‘Idol’ in 2012 alongside Randy is such a positive reflection on what was a wonderful and hugely successful season last year, and everyone is delighted,” said Simon Fuller, “American Idol” creator and executive producer, in a statement. Lopez and Tyler both made their debut at the “Idol” judges table last year; Jackson has been doling out advice on the show since its inception. Host Ryan Seacrest will also be back on the show, set to return Jan. 22.
