Taylor Swift Keeps It In the Family

Damn girl, I’m starting to not be able to keep up! If Taylor Swift keeps going through guys at this rate she’ll have enough amo for three more albums.

It was only a few weeks ago that tabolids became attached to the wholesome couple that could’ve been: country star, Taylor Swift, and Kennedy descendant, Patrick Patrick Schwarzenegger. However, the fourth of July hookup couldn’t have been that magical because Miss Swift has moved on to another member of the Kennedy bloodline, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s son, Conor Kennedy.

Spotted in Massachussetts together last weekend, the duo was spotted holding hands, going sailing, attending a house party, and going to church together!

Sounds like fun, just remember Taylor, you know what they say about the sure fire way to ruin a relationship, don’t talk politics!

A Jo-Bro Coming to ‘Idol?’

Alright, breathe! If you don’t already know my obsession with Nick Jonas, you’re about to find out! Sources at Fox are saying that the youngest Jonas Brother, and my future husband, is about to sign, seal and deliver his juding contract for next season’s American Idol.

“Nick is pretty close to signing to be the ‘Idol’ judge,” says a source. “They flew him in to L.A. last week for final meetings.”

Already X-Factor has got me all hyped up for one of my favorites, Demi Lovato, to judge this season, but if Idol had Nick sitting beside Mariah Carey my heart may not be able to take it.

If Nick does fill one of the possible two vacant chairs at the panel, sources are saying Pharrell and Brad Pasiley are in talks to take Randy Jackson’s spot if he decides to go from judge to mentor.

Poof Goes Adrienne Maloof’s Marriage

If you watched even one episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills you were probably wondering how in the world Palm’s Casino owner, Adrienne Maloof, and her plastic surgeon husband, Paul Nassif, were still together. The two couldn’t stand to be in the same room together, and everything Nassif did made Maloof cringe.

Well, the clock has run out on this marriage with the report that the couple have filed for legal seperation.

While the couple have three sons to share, I don’t think money will be an issue in the divorce, as both have enough on their own to feed a small country!

In Case You Missed It: The Recap On Kristen Stewart’s Cheating Scandal

So unless you have been living under a rock this past week you already know about Kristen Stewart getting caught out and consequently admitting to cheating on Robert Pattinson with her Snowwhite and the Huntsmen director, Rupert Sanders.

If that’s all you know about the scandal here’s a 10 second recap of the smoke after the fire:

Rob moved out of the couple’s Los Feliz, CA home, and is refusing to speak to Kristen, besides the couple of angry texts they have exchanged about custody of their dog. Also, it turns out Kristen’s public apology (or plea) to Rob actually hurt her case more than it helped. Pattinson felt her public outcry violated the agreement they had to stay as private as a couple as possible.

Choosing not to hide in a dark room, but still keeping status-quo with his anti-celebrity attitude, Pattinson has been spotted keeping a low-pro in his homecountry, England. However, the devastated star IS trying to mend his broken heart with a little alcohol and some friends. He was spotted out getting drinks with a mystery girl last week.

Back in the USA, Kristen Stewart has been left hanging by more then just her vampire BF. Sanders wife, Liberty Ross, is allegedly willing to her forgive her husband and baby daddy, and left Stewart out to dry with no BF and no BFF’s either. Sources claim that Stewart’s friend, most of which she shared with Pattinson, like Katy Perry and Charlize Theron, are so angry with the adulterer that they have stopped speaking to the actress and have taken R-Patz’s side.

This feud is shaping up to make one awkward Breaking Dawn Part II press tour!

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Just weeks ago they were talking wedding rings and baby bling, but now, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s relationship is all about cheating and pleading.

Just when we thought the real life Bella and Edward were going to live happily ever after, US Weekly turned the couple’s world upside down by printing pictures of Stewart getting cozy with her Snow White and the Huntsmen director, and married father of two, Rupert Sanders.

With the pictures to prove it, Stewart had no way of denying her affair and released this statement in an attempt to keep her vampire BF biting.

“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”

Sanders’ 34-year-old wife and baby mama, model Liberty Ross, who he has been dating since she was 18, and Pattinson supposedly both found out about the affair via the tabloid and are “devastated” by the news.

On the heels of Stewart’s statement, Sanders released his own apology to his wife and family, similarly begging for forgiveness.

“I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together,” he said.

Take a look below at the pictures that were taken by a US Weekly photographer who tracked the cheating couple down behind a “FOR LEASE” building. This is going to make for a very awkward Breaking Dawn Part II, press tour.

 

Holly Madison to Adopt a Little ‘Playboy’….Or Girl

Former playmate Holly Madison was denied a ring and a baby from ex-BF Hugh Hefner, but she isn’t letting that stop her from becoming a mother.

After taking on two reality shows, and a live Vegas peep show, the 32-year-old confirmed that she has begun the process of adopting a baby on her own.

“I really want to be a mommy,” she told In Touch, about starting the process with Hold my Hand mentoring agency.

Good for her!

Carly Rae Jepsen’s Nude Photos Goes Public…Maybe

After just confirming that the supposed sex tape of a look a like was in fact NOT her, Carly Rae Jepsen is once again involved in a nakey picture leak.

The Vancouver police, where Jepsen is from, confirmed that they have identified a possible suspect responsible for hacking into the singer’s computer last Spring, and possibly releasing nude photos he found. 

Neither the police or the “Call me maybe” singer are confirming or denying what exactly was taken off her computer, but my guess is if there were nude pictures they will be surfacing soon.

‘America’s Got Talent’ Doesn’t ‘Got’ Sharon Osbourne Anymore

Something must be in water that they’re serving singing competition judges, because America’s Got Talent judge, Sharon Osbourne, is adding her name to the list of quitters.

Yesterday, the British personality announced that she would no longer be judging the talent show, and taking from Twitter cues, it seems like new judge, Howard Stern, may be the reason why.

Although he has only been on the panel for one season, Howard Stern’s radio station account tweeted yesterday, “@HowardStern isn’t sure if he’ll do another season and says Sharon Osbourne may not come back unless she gets more money.”

In a quick defense, Osbourne tweeted back, “My darling @HowardStern, money is not the reason I’m not returning to @nbcagt, it’s because ….” The tweet was never completed. 

Reps at NBC say they were not aware of Osbourne’s departure before the announcement, but are still standing by Stern, saying they would be “delighted” if he returned next season.

Alley Cat Strike!

24 Jul

If you haven’t yet seen this dance, performed on So You Think You Can Dance, or just want to see it again and again, you need to check out the video below. 

So You Think You Can Dance is one of my favorite shows on TV, not just because I love music and dance, but because I am always fascinated by how the dancers can pick up on a routine so quickly, and perform it with so more emotion, and also how the choreographers have enough creative genius in their heads to think of routine after routine. 

This number was performed a couple weeks ago on the show, and was choreographed by husband and wife duo, Tabitha and Napoleon. If you don’t have time to watch the whole video, and skipped over the explantation, the routine is supposed to imitate a sensual rondevu between a back alley cat and a sophisticated house feline.

J-Lo Out, Carey In

After three years and two singing competitions trying to recruit Mariah Carey to sit on their judge’s panel, American Idol finally got the job done. 

Fox’s president, Kevin Reilly, announced yesterday that Mrs. Nick Cannon will be filling one of the two empty seats at the Idol judging table. 

No word yet on who will occupy the final vacancy but whomever it is, I hope they’re willing to take the job pro-bono, because after Fox signs Mariah’s paychecks, they may not have any money left.

Carey’s new gig just secured $18 million into her bank account, the highest yearly salary of any celebrity signing competition judge, in front of Britney Spear’s $15 million for X-Factor, and Christina Aguilera’s $10 mil for The Voice.  

New Characters Take Over For ‘Glee’ Alumni 

Yes, Ryan Murphy has said that every original cast member of Glee’s first three seasons will somehow make their way back into season four, but he never said anything about not adding new students. 

Taking over for bad ass Puck, will be his little brother, and newest New Direction member, Jake, played by Lifetime TV alum, Jacob Artist (right). 

Meanwhile, over in NYC, Rachel Berry is looking for love after Finn left her for boot camp, and will be finding it in the arms of a new character named Brody, played by Dean Geyer (left). 

While Geyer, Artist, and previously announced, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson, will be singing their debut notes on the Fox show, Chord Overstreet, who played Sam as a guest role for two seasons, has officially signed on the dotted line to make his trouty mouthed character apart of the permanent cast.  

Kate’s Looking For Her Plus One

Jon and Kate Plus Eight, star, Kate Gosselin, laid her train wreck of a marriage out for everyone to see on national TV. Now, the mom of eight is ready to do it again, except this time she’s hoping to find love and not divorce. 

Sources confirm that Kate and her management team are shopping around a dating show, starring Kate.

“She is ready to find love again and to move on from her past. She’s excited, this is a chance to start something new,” says the source. 

A competition-like show is nothing new to the seasoned reality star, who, after her TLC show, went on to do Dancing With the Stars. 

So will her new show be Bachelorette-esque or more Real Housewife-y? We’ll see when, and if, a network choses to pick it up. 

Usher’s Step-Son Succumbs to Brain Injury 

Just over two after a jet ski accident left him brain dead, Usher’s 11-year-old step son, Kile Glover, was officially pronounced dead on Saturday morning. 

Glover’s mother, and Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster Raymond, chose to take the boy off of the life support machine that was keeping him alive, and later released this statement: “We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it’s the best way we can all support him now.”

Currently no chargers are being pressed against the family friend, Jeffrey Hubbard, who hit Glover and another 15-year-old girl. 

Another Actor Cast for ‘Catching Fire’ 

Straight off the announcement that Philip Seymour Hoffman will be playing game-maker, Plutarch Heavensbee, in next year’s Catching Fire, studio executives have filled the spot of another major player in the second installment of The Hunger Games films. 

The intimidating, merciless, trash-talking bully, Johanna Mason, who competes against Katniss in the Quarter Quarrel, is set to be played by Jenna Malone. The actress has been in films and on TV since she was young, but has yet to have her breakout role. Could it happen with Catching Fire? I’m going yes! 

If you read the book, is this what you pictured the sneaky, ax-thrower to look like? :

‘Finding Nemo 2’ Is a Go!

Ellen Degeneres’s prayers have been answered. After mercilessly campaigning for a sequel to her famously voiced movie, Finding Nemo, Disney and Pixar have decided to give Degeneres another shot at bringing Dori to life. The sequel doesn’t yet have a set plot line, but is promised to be swimming into theaters by 2016.

Who’s Joining ‘American Horror Story?’

Ryan Murphy and FX have already confirmed that season 2 of American Horror Story will have a completely new look, starting with the setting: a 1960’s mental institution.

But who will be joining the new cast? Guest appearances will be made by Lily Rabe, Adam Levine, Chloë Sevigny and Joseph Fiennes. Regular cast members will include Jessica Lange, Evan Peters and Zachary Quinto, once again, and newbies, Chris Zylka, who will play a beautiful, deaf/mute patient, and Mark Consuelos as a hunky doctor.

A Bi-Lingual Actress Becomes America’s #1 Actress

She may be a Colombia native, but Sofia Vergara is taking over American TV. Topping the list of highest paid actresses, Vergara beat out America’s reality sweetheart, Kim Kardashian, and fellow Latina, Eva Longoria, with $18 million in earnings this year.

Not only is she raking in the dough from Modern Family, but Vergara is also on the payroll at Covergirl, Diet Pepsi, K-Mart, and Spanish associates at Statefarm, Burger King, and Comcast, which makes up most of her salary at $12 million. 

Felicidades, Sofia!

Kris Humphries Ain’t Scared of Kanye

Kanye West may have Kris Humphries sloppy seconds, but the ex-Kardashian basketball player is laughing all the way to the bank.

After signing a $24 million with the Nets, Humphries took to Twitter to let the rapper and his ex-wife know he’s doing just fine.

Mocking Kanye’s rap dissing him, Humphries tweeted, “I’m up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ lucky I didn’t have Jay drop me from the team” lol!”

The Boys Cause Trouble on ‘Pretty Little Liars’

18 Jul

Everybody is a suspect in Rosewood after last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, even…heartbreak….Ezra.

Still working on executing their plan to switch A’s note in Garret’s dying mother’s hospital bed, Hanna and Spencer break into the woman’s hospital room (again with the hospital breaking and entering).

The new note has a new meeting place for A, where the girls will be waiting: the church rec room behind the organ (where else would it be?)

So who showed up in the creepy old church to greet Hanna hiding behind a church pew? It was none other than Detective Wilden (who claimed a nurse gave him the note), who is back in town to complete his life mission of torturing Hanna’s mom and taking down the girls.

It doesn’t look good for Hanna or the other liars, because even after Hanna’s lame excuse about being in the church, the girls are back on Wilden’s radar, especially now that Garrett is going free.

That’s right! After Spencer’s mom proved evidence in the prosecution’s case to be inadmissible, all charges for the murder of Ali and Maya against Garrett were dropped. Spencer has a breakdown, and enlists Jason to help her get answers.

After they are casually stalked by her dad (weird), Spencer and Jason find that April Rose (the original meeting spot in the note), is actually an antique store, not a person.

So what’s in the store that A was meant to find? Ali’s gold anklet that mysteriously made it’s way into a display. Jason and Spencer turn the bracelet into the police, and unintentionally helped Garrett’s defense: the bracelet had traces of blood that don’t match Garrett.

So who’s blood is it? Well, I never thought I would be saying this but the blood could possibly be Ezra’s!!! I know, I know!

The insanely gorgeous teacher, who once seemed to be nothing but Aria’s naive wing man, was revealed to be another suspicious liar.

While looking for a pair of socks in Ezra’s draw, Aria came across a bag of cash, looking to be about $50,000, the amount of money that Jason once paid a mysterious tipster for information on Ali’s remains.

When confronted, Ezra gave Aria some sob speech about selling his car for money because he’s broke. Aria believes it and cozy up to her man on the couch. Innocent right? Of course not, because right after, Ezra turns to his draw and gives it that, “Oh shit!” look.

Could Ezra have been involved in Ali’s murder? I mean he did sleep with Aria when she was a student, who’s to say he didn’t do the same with Ali?

OK, so it’s Ezra right? He slept with Ali, got caught, got scared and killed her? Not so fast.

In was an episode filled with welcoming back old faces, Holden made his cameo. So what’s different about Aria’s old friend/cage fighter? Oh yeah, that suspicious evil eye tattoo.

The tattoo wouldn’t be so weird if it wasn’t the tattoo that Emily remembered seeing on the arm of her kidnapper the night Ali’s remains were dug up.

Holden’s tattoo was fake, and he said it was a symbol for a party that he went too where he saw Emily’s friend once. Maya?

Well, we may never know because Holden ran away as fast they words came out of his mouth.

I’m beginning to think we may never know the answers to any of these Pretty Little Liars questions and the show will just end with a tail spin into a black hole.

…until next time!

Steven Tyler and J-Lo Jump Ship on Idol

Well it’s back to square Randy Jackson on “America Idol” with the news that, after two seasons, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez will be leaving their judging chairs and Coke cups behind.

While it can be argued that being a judge on Idol made Lopez and Tyler relevant in this generation’s pop culture, both musicians said their reason for leaving the show is because of their desire to get back to their own music.

With “X-Factor,” and now “American Idol,” it looks like the job market for singing competition show judges and hosts is wide open!

Lorenzo Joins the ‘Jersey Shore’ Cast…Wait Who’s Lorenzo?

Celebrities usually don’t reveal the sex or name of their excessively stalked baby bumps until they’re born, but Snooki is 0-2 on celebrity etiquette.

Snooki, and her boyfriend Jionni’s, baby boy is due in September and is name is going to be Lorenzo.

While she may not have wanted to reveal her son’s name so soon, Snooki didn’t try to cover up, cast mate Jwow’s, slip of the tounge.

In an interview J-Wow accidentally told the reporter the baby’s name, then tried to cover it up, saying, “well, it’s a name she is thinking about.”

Snooki wasn’t mad at her BFF though, and quickly added, “No, it’s done.”

‘Walking Dead’ Talks A Lot About Dying

The Walking Dead cast panel was up at bat today at Comic-con in San Diego, and the cast hinted at some season three story lines.

First they revealed the new season tag line: “Fight the dead, fear the living.”

When talking about the prison, last seen in season two, Glen Mazzara revealed that, “It’s someplace that they’re willing to fight and die for.”

Finally, Andrew Lincoln gave a little insight into the character direction of Sheriff Rick, “Rick gets pushed and pushed, and this season there’s a point at which he reaches that point where he breaks… I believe the expression is ‘bat-shit crazy.’ The past few weeks have been crazy.”

The new season of the AMC hit starts in October.

Comic-Con Premieres ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’

First there was Wicked and now there is Oz the Great and Powerful.  Disney and director Sam Raimi premiered the trailer for their Wizard of Oz prequel today at Comic-Con.

Starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz, the film is about a man’s journey from circus ring master to the wizard of Oz.

Very Alice in Wonderland/Willy Wonka looking, but it has the potential to be interesting.

Take a look at the trailer below:
