Ed McMahon, who probably wishes he had been won a Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes check, will get to keep his home for now.

McMahon’s mansion, which fell into foreclosure earlier this year, will get to stay in the house now that Orange County based Foreclosure Trackers company has negotiated a new mortgage loan for the former king of late night sidekicks so that he can continue to make payments and keep a roof over his head.

Now if this can only be replicated a couple hundred thousand times for the rest of America.

American Idol Creators Suing Texas Gentleman’s Club for “Stripper Idol” Contest

The corporation FremantleMedia, who are the creators of the hit television show American Idol, are suing the owners of a Texas gentleman’s club for their amateur night competition they’ve dubbed “Stripper Idol”.

The the club’s website, Palazio Men’s Club plays on the singing competition reality show’s name in addition to altering the recognizable neon cursive script trademarked logo.

The lawsuit not only aims at stopping copyright infringement, but also seeks the profits derived from the club’s event for potential damage to the show’s image and fees for filing the suit in the first place.

Lampros, the club’s owner, says “I don’t feel they have any grounds to sue. This is just our way of enticing people to come out and have a good time and contribute to the economic crisis that is going on.”  There is currently no official word from the defense.
