Now for the Jackson Three
July 12, 2009

Paris, Prince and Blanket at their father's funeral.


MICHAEL Jackson's three children are being groomed for stardom.

Family patriarch Joe Jackson, who famously had a troubled relationship with his own children as he guided their careers, believes his bereaved grandchildren have the makings of showbiz domination just like his late son, Michael.
Joe Jackson, 79, told Good Morning America that the three children Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II (also known as Blanket), 7, could follow in the footsteps of their father.
"I keep watching Paris, she maybe wants to do something, you know," he said. "And Blanket, he can really dance, that's what they're saying. He can really dance."
Hollywood is buzzing with rumours the young Jacksons are preparing to star on stage in London next month for a celebration of what would have been their father's 51st birthday and that Prince Michael may record a "virtual" duet with his father.

Daily Mail loves Lady Gaga

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's just Lady Ga Ga in her latest outrageous outfit.

The Just Dance singer wore a bizarre space age creation to perform at the T in the Park music festival in Balado, Kinross-shire in Scotland today.

Covered in hundreds of tiny mirrored squares, the glittering angular dress seemed to be inspired either by a disco ball or the singer's bathroom tiles.

sneak peak at wentworth miller on svu

From being the hunted to the hunter, Wentworth Miller is guest starring on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" as a police officer. The ex-inmate of "Prison Break" puts up his NYPD suit and saves a rape victim in the episode called "Unstable".

His character is named Nate Kendal and he interacts with Det. Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson. In the clip which has just been released, Captain Donald Cragen holds Nate to work with the unit in solving the case although the officer is reluctant to do so.

Wentworth Miller shot his scene earlier this week in New York City. Show's regular Ice-T tweeted about sharing a scene with the star, writing "Just did a scene with Wentworth. It's crazy for me to act with people I watch on TV & Movies. I'm still a big fan. That never changes!"

"Unstable", the eleventh season's premiere, will air September 23 on NBC.

Why RTD Really Fucked Over Torchwood

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Wondering why Torchwood basically ended in the fiery ball of "what the fuck was that shit?" Well I think we've found the reason:

DOCTOR WHO writer Russell T Davies, regarded by many as the country’s best TV dramatist, has rocked BBC executives by announcing that he is leaving for the US.

The move is a major blow because, as well as revitalising Doctor Who, Davies created two popular spin-offs,Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Torchwood, starring Eve Myles, shifted to BBC1 from BBC2 last week, clocking up huge audiences.

But there is now uncertainty over its future with its creator relocating to Hollywood.

Davies said of his move: “I haven’t planned anything, all my furniture is now there and I’m just going to start writing.

“It will take years to get anything made out there. It’s going to be difficult, so new and so brilliant. I will learn from people and bring it back here one day. It’s a big adventure and a lot of fun.”

Asked about the future of Torchwood, a BBC spokeswoman said: “It’s his show but it’s too early to say whether it will return. We will look closely at all of the ratings.”

Girl freaks out at Sir Paul concert. Awesomeness ensues.

Paul McCartney kicked off his North American non-tour, tour Saturday night at the Halifax Common, Halifax, Nova Scotia. One of the highlights of last night was when he flubbed a line after looking into the crowd to see a teenage girl holding a sign that read, "Sign my arm so I can get a tattoo?"

He then brought the girl on stage and signed her shoulder with a marker. She then proceeded to run around screaming and hugging each member of the band before being escorted off.

"You'd better get it done now," he said as she left to laughter and cheers.

Virtuality could be the best show that never happened


Did FOX really reject this pilot?

I missed the Friday, June 26 premiere of Virtuality, a "Sci-Fi TV movie" (it was actually a pilot for a TV series, not a movie), and thus had to catch up and acquire it after the fact. Why did I miss it? Hmm, let me think"¦ Could it be that there was virtually NO PUBLICITY?

And now the rumour is that FOX has decided not to pick it up as a series. Instead, they hid the movie on a Friday night with practically no buzz. Nice one.

It's a small wonder that Virtuality did not score high in America's far too powerful Nielsen Ratings: no one knew about it. One has to wonder about Fox TV sometimes. Here they have a glossy new, high-budget, high-quality pilot made by the current god of television Sci-Fi, Ronald D. Moore, and they don't promote it. He should be rubber stamped for a new series, for frack sake. This guy can do no wrong. He was the main man behind Battlestar Galactica, arguably the most successful Sci-Fi of all time, in terms of its double whammy of popularity and critical acclaim. And before that he headed up a couple of series for an obscure franchise called Star Trek. Heard of that one?

Moore brings along his bud Michael Taylor (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Voyager) and director Peter Berg from the critically acclaimed Friday Night Lights and immensely entertaining Hancock.

It seems like a no-brainer, as much as choosing a TV series could ever be easy.

Lauren Conrad's Book Hits The New York Times Best-Seller List

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

She said goodbye to The Hills but Lauren Conrad is still a fan favorite: Her debut novel, L.A. Candy, has topped the New York Times Best Seller list two weeks in a row.

"If someone said to me five years ago when this all started that I would one day make the New York Times Best Seller list I wouldn't have believed it," Conrad tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I am so honored that it is now a reality."

The novel, loosely based on Conrad's own life, follows of Jane Roberts, a 19-year-old girl who moves to Hollywood and ends up as the star of her own reality show.

Although Conrad is used to the spotlight, she's still in awe over her literary accomplishment, "It was such a compliment to be included in something with such established names."

L.A. Candy, which hit shelves June 16, is the first in a three-book deal for the reality TV star.

Khloe Kardashian: I Lost 20 Pounds!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Her sister Kim may be the one with the famous figure, but this time, it's Khloe Kardashian who is showing off her svelte new shape.

"I recently just lost 20 pounds!" the reality star told Usmagazine.com at the Three-O Vodka Bubble launch party in NYC Thursday.

How'd she do it?

"I try to do just 30 minutes of cardio, mandatory," Khloe, 25, tells Us. "Obviously if I have more time, I want to do weights, but really that cardio is what works for me because I'm bigger. Cardio is what leans me out, and it still works your muscle definition too. Any kind of cardio."

And to avoid a monotonous routine, she makes sure to switch hers up.

"I do different kinds everyday because I get really bored. I do boxing, I go on hikes, I do stairs," she says. "I'm always switching it up."

Khloe -- who will appear with sister Kourtney in the new E! series, Kourtney and Khloe in Miami, this August -- is more than happy with how far she's come.

"It's hard work, but it's worth it, and once you start seeing results, it keeps you motivated," she says. "Now I actually get excited. I'm like 'I've got to start seeing arm definition soon,' so I go to the gym."

Besides her workout routine, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star tells Us her dieting secrets.

"I eat whatever I want until noon. Then from noon on, I watch what I eat," says Khloe, who adds that she is also launching a diet product called Quick Trim with Kim. "I only drink champagne. 100 calories in a glass, and I'm good."

Waiting on the RHONY to get their acts together

 

Things aren’t so solid for the “Real Housewives of New York” cast members: Not all of the ladies have inked deals to return to the hit Bravo show.

Although each of the women has been asked back, only newest housewife Kelly Bensimon has signed on to appear next season. A network insider tells us the other ladies are dragging their feet over — what else? — money.

“The Housewives all want six-figure deals,” says our source. “They barely made 10 grand for the first season, and now are all a bit too big for their britches. They want the whole shebang: a clothing allowance, money for hair and makeup, a set raise and a promised amount of screen time.”

To be prepared in case anyone refuses to sign her contract (a network rep refused to comment on any contract negotiations), Bravo has quietly been interviewing at least 30 prospective cast members. One “Housewife” source tells us that the interviewees are single moms in their 30s who are as attractive and well-connected as socialite Bensimon.

Meanwhile, another network insider says the girls should just be grateful they still have a job. “They’re forgetting that the New York show now plays second fiddle to the New Jersey show,” according to the snitch. “They should watch out! The OC Housewives were a perfect example of how each woman can be replaced.”

As for leggy Kelly’s deal, her co-stars are naturally displeased — as, most certainly, will be fans. Some 85% of polled viewers on Bravo’s Web site said they’d vote her off the show. But our first insider insists that Bensimon has appeal: “People may hate Kelly, but they aren’t immune to her. They hate her so much that they want to see what she’ll do next. She’s the bad guy, and that makes for interesting television.”

Bensimon confirmed to pals over the weekend in the Hamptons that she’ll be returning to the show. Still, the future is uncertain for Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord — though the last seems ready to stick around. “We’re in discussions for next season,” McCord told us. “Let’s put it this way: We’re headed to Australia to promote the show. And we wouldn’t be doing that if we weren’t ready for next season.”


 


While i felt alittle embarassed watching the NJ show (being from NJ) i did enjoy it al ittle more than NY. That doesnt mean i dont want the NY show to return. JILL ZARIN GET IT TOGETHER BITCH I NEED YOU!

Madonna sings forbidden "Frozen"

Madonna performed last night in Belgium. Nothing exciting right? After being late for about an hour and the rain, it wasn’t very easy to get the 70 000 people crowd going. The British DJ Paul Oakenfold tried to get the crowd going but with little luck.

But the question is: Did she sing “Frozen”? It was supposingly on her tracklist but she isn’t allowed to sing that song in Belgium. In 2005 a judge decided that the Queen of pop had committed plagiarism and he forbid her to sing the song in Belgium.

The Belgian composer Salvatore Acquaviva went to court after he thought “Frozen” resembled too much to his 70s song “Ma vie fout le camp”.

If Madonna sang “Frozen” she can get a fine.

And I can tell you, she did sang "Frozen" before ending the concert.

Joe Jackson Makes Parenting Bid for Michael's Kids


While his role as the driving force in the Jackson family success has never been in question, father Joe Jackson's parenting — especially with Michael — has long been a subject of scrutiny and controversy. So it's all the more surprising that the driven patriarch is now working to forge a larger role for himself in the lives of Michael's three children.

In a partial interview released on ABC on Friday, taken from a longer interview to be aired July 14, Joe says that both he and estranged wife Katherine should take on permanent guardianship duties now that Michael has died. "Their grandmother Katherine and I should raise them," Joe said. "Yes there's no one else who can do what we can do for them. We should keep them all together and make them happy. Feed them like they are supposed to be fed."

Previously there had not been a significant "we" in the children equation. As Michael requested in his will, Katherine has been granted legal temporary guardianship of Prince Michael I, 12, Paris Michael Katherine, 11, and Prince Michael II (also known as Blanket), 7. Deborah Rowe, the biological mother of Prince Michael I and Paris Michael Katherine, who had renounced her parental rights years ago, had stated an interest in taking custody of all three children in a recent interview and her lawyer is involved in the guardianship proceedings. A guardianship hearing set for Monday in Los Angeles was postponed until July 20. Katherine's lawyer said in a statement that the week delay would allow the opportunity to "privately and amicably" resolve the issue.
 
While still legally married, Katherine and Joe have long been separated, even residing in different states for the past few years. Michael was often vocal about his critique of Joe's parenting techniques, telling Oprah Winfrey in 1993 that there was "a lot of sadness" in his childhood. He revealed his father would tease him about his pimples and would even beat him. Jackson said his father was "very hard" and that he was "frightened" of him. In the same interview, he referred to his mother as "wonderful" and "perfection

 

Jackson biographer and family friend Stacy Brown says Joe's re-emergence is not out of character. "No one can put reins on Joe," Stacy says. "With a potential custody battle and knowing that he would likely be among the negatives discussed [in any court battle], Joe does what Joe wants."

Mark Lester, godparent to Michael's children, says he is not concerned by Joe's statements. "In recent years, Michael and Joe had repaired a lot of the emotional trauma that had gone on before," Lester told TIME. He says that Joe has a different relationship with his grandchildren: "I've seen how Joe reacts with the kids, he's very loving with them."

 

In the ABC extract, Joe was asked if he felt the Jackson children could go into show business. "I don't know," Joe responded. "I keep watching Paris. She wants to do something." He added that Blanket can "really dance."

Joe more recently drew criticism when he plugged his fledgling recording company project at appearances following Michael's death. The circumstances behind his interview with ABC also raised eyebrows, as unconfirmed word leaked out that Jackson had received $200,000 for the use of family films, which critics have decried as profiteering.

dead celebrities crazy people insist are still alive but in hiding



When Michael Jackson died on June 25, it took about five minutes before some looney Internet junkie started blogging about how he's really not dead, he's just hiding. That's right, he faked his own death "to escape the crushing pressures of life in a fishbowl." (Thanks for the quote, Derek Klontz, "herbalist, author and journalist of international reach.")

But, of course, as anyone (who's completely certifiably insane and has seen Death Becomes Her too many times) can tell you, MJ wasn't the first celebrity to grow tired of all that fame and money and attention and decide to check out with a forged death certificate.

Here's a tribute to some of the others, wherever they're holed up.

According to one of his former girlfriends — an actress who Rob dated for around two months last year after meeting her through friends — the Twilight hunk is “amazing” in bed.

“I’m really passionate, as is he. That’s why, no matter how much we fought, it was always amazing in bed!”


“We’d glance at each other throughout the night because it made it more exciting when we got home,” added Rob’s former flame. “The tension was so strong, we couldn’t control ourselves. It was amazing!”


Meanwhile, the 23-year-old Brit

“Robert met Emilie a while ago and has always liked her,” a source close to Rob recently dished to Life & Style magazine. “He’s the one who suggested to the producers at Summit [the same production company responsible for the Twilight series] that she’d be perfect for Remember Me. In the original screenplay, her part was written for an actress of Mexican descent.”

Ashley Tisdale Sucks Her Thumb

Ashley Tisdale has a guilty secret — she sucks her thumb!

The High School Musical star apparently resorts to thumb-sucking — at night — when she’s feeling stressed.

“Ashley gets really wound up dealing with intense situations,” a source told the National Enquirer. “It’s her way to cope when she’s going to bed. It’s cute and it helps, so it’s not really a problem.”

Tisdale, 24, recently revealed that she decided to get rid of her blonde locks because people kept assuming she had the same bitchy nature as her HSM character Sharpay Evans.

“I just kind of wanted to go back to the original,” she said. “I was blonde for a good amount of years and I just wanted to give my hair a rest and do something different to show another side of me that people hadn’t really seen.

“I kept being mistaken for Sharpay. I’d definitely go back to blonde for a character role if I have to. But I love being brunette.”

Proof that gays value marriage just as much as straights do

Mudslinging Divorces ain't just for straight folk anymore.



Tennis star Martina Navratilova has arguably done more for gay visibility (aka "mainstreaming") than any other athlete or celebrity — and did so at a time when it was particularly inconvenient. So how come she's suddenly become one of the community's biggest problems?

Billie Jean King has called Navratilova "the greatest singles, doubles and mixed doubles player who's ever lived." She "won 18 Grand Slam singles titles, 31 Grand Slam women's doubles titles (an all-time record), and 10 Grand Slam mixed doubles titles. She reached the Wimbledon singles final 12 times, including 9 consecutive years from 1982 through 1990, and won the women's singles title at Wimbledon a record 9 times." And most of that came after, in 1981, she came out publicly. Since then, she's been a champion for gay rights, even filing a lawsuit in 1992 in Colorado to fight Amendment 2, which would've granted any town, city, or county from enacting anti-discrimination rules for gays.

So how come Navratilova might just be Public Enemy No. 1 to GLBTs right now?

The Eclipsed Celebrity Death Club



Poor Farrah Fawcett. A month ago, People magazine's Larry Hackett admitted to the Times that she only had one remaining chance for some friendly press:
"At this point, Farrah has to die," he said. "It's the only cover left for her." Needless to say, she's missed her chance. Having vanished from the headlines after Michael Jackson's sudden demise, Farrah is just the latest to join a peculiar group: the Eclipsed Celebrity Death Club.

The classic ECD example is Groucho Marx, who passed away the same week as Elvis Presley, and thus missed out on a good week's worth of TV tributes. But the easiest way for a famous person to vanish from the earth without so much as a blip is to follow a president of the United States. Ray Charles caught barely a moment's coverage when he died in 2004, right in the middle of the weeklong blanket coverage of Ronald Reagan's death and funeral. Same story for James Brown, who got some press but definitely ran second to Gerald Ford. (The only person who could square off against a dead head of state, it seems, was Mother Teresa. When she died a few days after Princess Diana, a good deal of the coverage tried to frame them as comparably angelic figures.) And don't forget Alice Trillin—granted, not a worldwide celebrity, but a beloved figure to her husband Calvin's thousands of New Yorker-­reading fans. While awaiting a heart transplant, she died on September 11, 2001, following the horrible deaths of thousands of New Yorkers. Most of her husband's readers only learned about it many months later, when he published About Alice.

The championship trophy for badly timed death, though, goes to a pair of British writers. Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World, died the same day as C.S. Lewis, who wrote the Chronicles of Narnia series. Unfortunately for both of their legacies, that day was November 22, 1963, just as John Kennedy's motorcade passed the Texas School Book Depository. Huxley, at least, made it interesting: At his request, his wife shot him up with LSD a couple of hours before the end, and he tripped his way out of this world. Which, if you're going to go to your reward without anyone's noticing, is probably not a bad way to end it all.

Ugly Betty's David Blue talks about his new show Stargate Universe



Over on Stargate's official website there are two video interviews with David Blue, who will be playing Eli Wallace in the upcoming Stargate Universe series.

No, this has nothing to do with Cliff not being on Ugly Betty. Blue talked about it on his blog, stating "I was cast in the role on 'SG:U' after I had already come back to LA from shooting 'Betty'. I'd love for Cliff to come back some day too! But as I've said before, I'm not nearly as cool as all the writers/producers of the show... so I haven't the foggiest idea if/when that'd happen. And to answer another question, of COURSE I'd love to come back to 'Betty' sometime. DUH! In the meantime, I'll keep my fingers crossed right along with you."

ARE YOU GONNA LEAVE OR AM I GONNA HAVE TO THROW YOU OUT.... THROUGH A WINDOW.... THAT IS CLOSED!

'True Blood' gets truly great with new episode
By Robert Bianco, USA TODAY
 

 

 

Not that the first three episodes haven't been great, gory, sexy fantasy fun, or that it hasn't been a pleasure to see new characters arrive and new stories begin. But with Sunday's episode, the first this season written by creator Alan Ball, you can just feel the show's main plots kick into another gear.

Which celebrities use Botox?



Botulinum toxin Type A (Botox) was primarily used to treat muscle spasms before gaining popularity as a cosmetic treatment.
Botox is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment administered by a doctor to treat frown lines. Botox works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause the frown lines that develop as people age. With appearance playing an important factor in their careers, many celebrities use Botox and aren't afraid to admit it.

Jenny McCarthy, 36, says she goes for Botox every 2 months, “My tricks are I get Botox in my forehead – I just have my doctor do a little shoter there. If you overdo, it looks bad.”

Vanessa Williams, 45, is a fan of Botox – even her character on Ugly Betty has her gay assistant give her Botox injections in her office. Vanessa gets injections in real life every 3 months.

Model Daisy Fuentes, 42, uses Botox, “There’s a right time for things like Botox as you get older.”

Lisa Rinna recently admitted to going overboard with Juvederm injections in her face. “In my family, it’s hereditary to have scowl marks between the eyebrows.” Lisa gets injections every 3 months.

Lori Loughlin is a Botox user. “It makes you look like you’ve been on a really nice vacation. Just really well-rested.”

Jennie Garth says she didn't have a good first experience with Botox. She told her doctor next time she wanted less. "I don’t want my face to change."

Linda Evangelista
openly talks her use of Botox. “How do other women feel when they see the pictures? Models are not superhuman. We grow old,” Linda says.

Jennifer Aniston has admitted she once tried Botox and wasn’t a fan. “I tried Botox once. I felt like I had a weight on my head. You see women, you know they’re not young, but you can’t tell how old they are.”
