Jimmy Fallon: More than Jay or Dave, he could be a new Johnny Carson
Tonight, when Jimmy Fallon takes over The Tonight Show, it may sound woefully out-of-date to suggest that he in any way wants to be, or should be, or is going to be “the new Johnny Carson.” The very phrase reeks of Vegas mothballs. Over the last two decades, starting with the moment when Jay Leno launched his Attack Of The Nice Guy blandified makeover, The Tonight Show has effectively been de-Johnny-fied, and Fallon, who is 24 years younger than Leno (and would be 49 years younger than Carson if Carson were still alive), represents a brand new generation — or maybe I should

2013 celebrity deaths: Paul Walker, Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini

The year now ending marks another 12-month period of losing talents who have given television viewers entertainment or information ... and some of those passings, even more sadly, came as major and untimely shocks. Zap2it remembers:

Paul Walker: The actor best-known for the "Fast & Furious" movies had career roots in such TV shows as "Who's the Boss?" "Highway to Heaven" and "Touched by an Angel."

James Gandolfini: He projected so much older as mobster Tony Soprano, many were surprised to learn the three-time Emmy winner only was in his 30s and 40s when he played the part.

Cory Monteith: As Finn Hudson on "Glee," the Canadian-born performer touched fans of all ages both in life and afterward.

Jean Stapleton: Forever TV's top "dingbat," the "All in the Family" actress earned three Emmys as lovably daffy Edith Bunker.

Buzzmakers: Jolie's Mastectomy & Beckham Retires
What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?

1. Angelina Jolie Reveals She Had a Double Mastectomy

In an op-ed piece for the The New York Times, Oscar winning actress and mother-of-six Angelina Jolie reveals that she recently underwent a preventive double mastectomy.

In the article, the 37-year-old actress goes into great detail about how her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, fought breast cancer for almost a decade before dying from the disease at 56 years old.

After being told by doctors that she carried a "faulty gene" that increases the chances of breast and ovarian cancer -- with an estimated 87 percent risk of breast cancer and 50 percent risk of the latter -- Jolie decided to be proactive and have a double mastectomy.

Here are some excerpts from the article:

"Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy

Richie's Email Invite Causes a Fuss

Troubled socialite Nicole Richie is making new enemies after a joke e-mail invite to a Memorial Day party fell into the wrong hands. The Simple Life star was poking fun at the news stories about her own DUI and weight loss issues in the invite, which encourages pals to "celebrate our country by drinking massive amounts of beer." But experts aren't laughing after the invite was obtained by American publication In Touch Weekly. Richie, who faces a possible jail term in court next month following a drink driving arrest last year, ends the ill-advised e-vite by jokingly urging her friends to "start starving yourself" so they're thin enough to enter the party. She writes, "There will be a scale at the front door. No girls over 100 pounds allowed in. Start starving yourself now." Leading therapist Dr. Joyce Brothers is among those who feel Richie should have thought twice before she sent out the invite. She says, "(She is) thumbing her nose at the people in rehab. It's a huge form of acting out." Ironically, the party itself made headlines - Richie's pal Mischa Barton was taken to the hospital after suffering a bad reaction to medication at the bash, according to In Touch Weekly. And Richie made the news again after the party - she was involved in a minor accident as she left the bash.
