In the wake of the notorious shootings, hundreds of friends and relatives gathered to mourn the deaths of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew, at Pleasant Gift Memorial Baptist Church on Chicago's South Side on Sunday.

At the public memorial, mourners listened to songs and recounted stories about Darnell Donerson, 57, Jason Hudson, 29, and Julian King, 7.

Neither Jennifer Hudson nor her sister Julia Hudson - the mother of Julian King, and whose estranged husband, William Balfour, is still in police custody but has not been charged with the murders - were not in attendance.

Jennifer Hudson and her sister also created the Hudson-King Foundation for Families of Slain Victims in the wake of the deaths, according to Jennifer's rep.

The foundation will provide care for the families who have lost relatives to a violent crime, including giving food, clothing, shelter and grief counseling.

Actresses Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones are back with another PSA on Funny or Die, urging everybody to get out and cast a vote this Tuesday, November 4.

Just one more day and these PSAs will mercifully cease.

Just like their previous PSA, in which they recommended puppies to solve the financial crisis, Portman and Jones are pulling out the big, cuddly guns below ...

'DIE' AS USUAL: She's awesome and all, but Natalie Portman should stick to serious acting instead of humor. As for Rashida Jones? She should stick to The Office quotes.

A beautiful Hayden Panettiere shined on the red carpet in a gold mini dress at the Hollywood Legacy Awards XI, honoring the Heroes cast at the Esquire House in L.A.

We always think the 19-year-old is one of the hottest around. But this dress? We're not so sure about it. Is that a blood stain? And is the thing made of plastic wrap?

With the election just two days away, Arizona Sen. and Republican presidential hopeful John McCain made fun of himself last night on Saturday Night Live.

His running mate, Sarah Palin, was simply made fun of by others.

Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel, a radio duo known as Masked Avengers and famous for their prank phone calls (often to celebrities) in Montreal, Quebec, released a recording of a six-minute call to the Alaska Governor.

Sarah Palin thought she was speaking with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Despite numerous hints - an exaggerated accent, ridiculous comments and jokes left and right - that this was bogus, Palin didn't appear to pick up on them.

In the conversation, the impersonators discuss, among other things, the "Joe le Plumber," shooting animals from helicopters, and Carla Bruni in bed. Really.

Listen to the prank call in the clip below...

With the presidential election just days away, Republican candidate John McCain drew laughs – often at his own expense – on Saturday Night Live last night.

In response to Barack Obama's purchase of airtime on several major networks on Wednesday night, McCain lamented that he could only afford airtime on QVC.

"I'm a true Maverick: a Republican without money!" the Arizona Senator joked that, "My only showbiz connections are Jon Voight and Heidi from The Hills."

By his side were wife Cindy McCain, who lent a hand selling "McCain Fine Gold Jewelry," and his running mate Sarah Palin ... a.k.a. SNL alum Tina Fey.

Here's the opening Saturday Night Live sketch ...

Friday night was Halloween and The Hills' Audrina Patridge, Lauren Conrad and Lauren Bosworth (a.k.a. Lo) all got decked out in various costumes to celebrate.

You have to give Audrina Patridge credit (that's the only sexy peacock we've ever seen), but LC and Lo also rocked some interesting, semi-elaborate getups.

We report this like it's major news, because it sort of is. You can never guarantee that Amy Winehouse is gonna make it to the next celebrity news cycle.

The troubled Back to Black singer was spotted out in London last night after spending a few days in a clinic (of the rehab variety) for a "chest infection."

DATE WITH DEATH: Amy Winehouse looks poised to survive 2008, which would defy expectations from our site. 2009 is a different story, though, especially when and if Blake Fielder-Civil gets released from prison. Hold onto your effing hats then.

As the Britney Spears PR Express rolls on, the singer revealed a sexy cover photo for her new album Circus Friday – plus the next single, called "Circus."

We're sure it is!

The CD, which has already produced the hit "Womanizer," which opens with a hot shot of Britney Spears nude and only gets better, drops December 2.

Here's the hot cover ...

Tom Cruise has bigger problems than the fashion sense of Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes (matching outfits, come on). We're talking about bribing judges!

Church of Scientology critic Peter Letterese is currently accusing some of the leaders of the controversial religion (including Tom Cruise) of paying off a federal judge and others to hold up a $250 million lawsuit he filed back in July.

In response to these alleged dastardly deeds, Letterese has amended the suit for an extra $15 million. That's right. He now wants $265 million.

Moving forward with a lawsuit against the famously litigous Church of Scientology is a challenging enough task to achieve, but accusing federal judges of taking bribes would make Letterese’s difficult battle seem impossibly uphill.

The defendants don't seem too worried about it, either.

As an associate of Tom Cruise was quoted as saying:

“Without compelling proof to support these allegations, like video of the judges being handed envelopes of cash, I think he stands a better chance of successfully bouncing down a flight of stairs on his head than he has of winning this lawsuit.”
