The latest in celebrity widgets

Posted on

As much as it pains me to admit this, I am insanely jealous and admiring of Rolling Stone‘s Pete Doherty Arrest/Rehab countdown widget, which tracks the cracked-out whereabouts of everyone’s favorite former Libertine and Kate Moss stumbling block.

But I can’t say I buy into Radar‘s Fame-O-Meter, a ”Real Time Buzz Index,” which is currently telling me that I care more about Barbara Walters than I do about Rosie O’Donnell (ooh, Rosie isn’t gonna stand for that), or that Jack Black is like 500 times more famous than Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, etc.  Um. Somehow I don’t buy it. First of all, the Tenacious D trailer is just not that good. Second of all, Radar folds like a cheap ping-pong table every three months, so I’m not sure their information can be trusted.

Any other widgets you kids would like to see? Grey’s Anatomy Brawl-Tracker? Nicole Richie Snack Counter? Number of Celebrity O-Meters O-Meter?
