By Sam Brand Posted Oct 13th 2009 03:13PM
Carnie Wilson, Susan Sarandon's Daughter and Ivanka Trump are surging in Google Trends? We can shed some light on the mystery. Google Trends provides the hottest keywords of the hour. Though the results change frequently, at any given time the list offers a snapshot of what's on people's minds. Here are the hottest pop culture trending topics today...
Carnie Wilson - If you're a fan of the former Wilson Phillips singer and daughter of music icon Brian Wilson, then you know Carnie Wilson has been hosting 'The Newlywed Game' on the Game Show Network since April. Actually, maybe you can sing "Hold On" start to finish and you still didn't know that. Well, now you do, and if you Googled Carnie today now you know that the 'Newlywed Game' featured its first ever gay couple yesterday. Big deal considering the show has been on TV for something like 40 years. George Takei, better known as Sulu on 'Star Trek,' appeared with his partner of 22 years Brad Altman. They officially married last September.
Pulmonary Edema - Speaking of gay pioneers, Boyzone singer Stephen Gately's autopsy results were released today. The results confirmed that the first boy bander to come out of the closet did in fact die of natural causes. Acute pulmonary edema, or fluid in the lungs, has been ruled the official cause of death. It's still unclear if drugs or alcohol were involved in the 33-year-old's death. Gately's body will now be flown from Majorca back to his home in Ireland.
Shauna Sand Exposed - Banking on the Googlegasm generated by ex-husband Lorenzo Lamas' new reality show, Vivid Entertainment is promoting 'Shauna Sand Exposed,' a sex tape the company acquired from a party unconnected with Ms. Sand. The May 1996 Playmate and father to Lamas' 3 daughters told TMZ , "Yes I did make a sex tape with my boyfriend earlier this year. In fact I've made several sex tapes, but I certainly didn't sign off on this and Vivid has no right to put it out. I am trying to get a hold of my attorney now." Vivid says it does have a right to sell the footage, and the company is already running graphic teasers on its site.
Gary Shandling - Well, you're spelling his name wrong, it's 'Garry' with two R's, not that your gaffe will keep you from obtaining the info you're looking for. And that's probably just what the deal is with Garry Shandling's face. Following his appearance on 'The Late Show With David Letterman' last night, the Googleverse exploded with activity in pursuit of his plastic surgery history. Or maybe he's just bloated (you can vote here) , maybe allergic to the dust mites in Letterman's old couch. OK, that's gotta be a facelift – probably undertaken cheaply and illegally in a developing country halfway across the globe.
Susan Sarandon's Daughter - If you clicked info on this week's 'Californication,' you would have seen a little 'N' in parenthesis of the episode's description. That's a boobie alert for anyone who knows cable TV. So who went topless? That'd be Eva Amurri, "Jackie" on the show, and real-life daughter of Susan Sarandon. And Sarandon, who got a li'l naked in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' and 'Bull Durham,' is just fine with it. She told The New York Daily News, "I've already seen little bits and pieces of some of the nudity and she looks beautiful – if you have it why not?"
Ivanka Trump - The Donald's daughter appeared on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' this morning to hawk her new book 'The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life.' Maybe you're not so much curious about that as the details of the 27-year-old vice president of the Trump Organization's upcoming wedding to New York Observer publisher Jared Kushner. The two will tie the knot amongst 500 friends at her dad's golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Oct. 25, sources say. But Ivanka tells PEOPLE she's not ready to start a family just yet. "Jared and I both work long hours," she said. "When our time to have a family comes around, I know I will compromise. I am not there yet!"
