Hayden Panettiere & Darin Brooks Dating?

Seems like Heroes and former Guiding Light (ex-Lizzie) star, Hayden Panettiere has gotten over her recent break up with co-star Milo Ventimiglia by spending time with Days of Our Lives cutie Darin Brooks (Max). The two were spotted at LAX today. Now some may say its a coincidence, but do the math folks. Panettiere attended a benefit for the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific Foundation Honolulu. Brooks is from Hawaii— Honolulu to be exact...

Splitsville: Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere Break-Up

Us Magazine is reporting that Heroes' Hayden Panettiere (ex-Lizzie, Guiding Light) and Milo Ventimiglia have broken up. Apparently the parting of ways came because of a "lifestyle conflict."

“It was a lifestyle conflict… (She) is young. She likes to go out in the Hollywood scene and that’s not his style. (Ventimiglia) has been concentrating on work, on his production company,” an Us Magazine insider has revealed.

Let's hope the Hollywood scene doesn't entice Hayden to much. She's a good actress, but I'd hate to see her end up like Lindsay Lohan or Mischa Barton.

At 19, Hayden is 12 years younger than the 31-year old Milo.

Has NBC Gone Nuts? Part Two

Leno

Daytime Confidential's Sean posted this news before I could do so, but I was so flabbergasted by this new bit of Bizarro-World business that I had to post a follow-up.

Hot on the heels of the news of NBC Universal president Jeff Zucker's revelation that the network is considering reducing its broadcast schedule by hours per week or reducing days comes the eyebrow raising news via The New York Times and other outlets that Jay Leno is staying with the network after Conan O'Brien takes over The Tonight Show in 2009.

As Sean pointed out, Leno's new show — which will look almost exactly like The Tonight Show — will air every week night at 10PM starting next fall. Seriously.

In order to figure out how this might impact Days of Our Lives, a bit of an examination of how NBC's potential prime time schedule might be affected by this move could point us in a clearer direction of its intentions toward the soap. In all honesty, the following is speculation but it is based on what Zucker himself said about these issues just yesterday. READ MORE
