NOOOOOOO :(



SALT LAKE CITY - The man who inspired the title character in the Oscar-winning movie "Rain Man" has died.

Kim Peek was 58. His father, Fran, says Peek had a major heart attack Saturday morning and was pronounced dead at a hospital in the Salt Lake City suburb of Murray.

Peek was a savant with a remarkable memory and inspired writer Barry Morrow when he wrote "Rain Man," the 1988 movie that won four Academy Awards.

Fran Peek said his son met Morrow at a convention in the early 1980s and the writer was taken with Peek's knack for retaining everything he heard. Morrow wrote the script, and the movie went on to win Oscars for best film and best actor for Dustin Hoffman, whose repetitive rants about being an excellent driver and the "People's Court" about to start were a hit with moviegoers.

Although the character was technically fictional, Fran Peek said his son was every bit as amazing as Hoffman's portrayal of him. And Kim's true character showed when he toured the world, helping dispel misconceptions about mental disabilities.

"It was just unbelievable, all the things that he knew," Fran Peek said Monday. "He traveled 5,500 miles short of 3 million air miles and talked to nearly 60 million people — half have been students."

In his later years, Peek was classified as a "mega-savant" who was a genius in about 15 different subjects, from history and literature and geography to numbers, sports, music and dates. But his motor skills were limited; he couldn't perform some simple tasks like dressing himself.

NASA scientists had been studying Peek, hoping that technology used to study the effects of space travel on the brain would help explain his mental capabilities.

Fran Peek says the funeral will be next Tuesday in Taylorsville. Details were pending.

Size 4 fashion model Lara Stone called 'fat'



Model Lara Stone is the face of the moment, voted highest paid model by Forbes and is a Size 4. She's also being called "fat".

The 26-year-old Dutch model reaches 5-foot-10 and wears a proud Size 4 but in a recent interview with Vogue magazine, the model of the moment says she constantly feels pressure from the industry to trim down her size.

"What they say is 'curvy,' but you know they mean fat," Stone told Vogue, even mentioning a time where she was offered a corset to wear to pull her in.

Stone confesses to the magazine that while she may be more comfortable now, she's had her spill of dieting, exercise and weight loss pills to help her trim fat. She turned to extreme weight loss strategies and even alcohol to lose weight with no avail.

Today, Stone is a happy Size 4, she says. "People still tell me I'm fat, but when I look in the mirror, that's not what I see."

Brittany Murphy's husband and mother made a frantic attempt to revive her before paramedics arrived ... this according to notes written by an investigator from the L.A. County Coroner's office. And, there were a shocking number of strong prescription meds on Brittany's nightstand.

TMZ has reviewed the documents, written by Investigator Blacklock. According to his notes, Brittany Murphy "had been complaining of shortness of breath and severe abdominal pain" for 7 to 10 days prior to her death. According to the notes, Murphy went into the bathroom at around 7:30 AM Sunday and shut the door.

A half hour later Brittany's mother, Sharon Murphy, went to check on her daughter, opened the bathroom door and "discovered the decedent lying on the floor unresponsive." According to the notes, Sharon yelled for help. Brittany's husband, Simon Monjack, who was in bed, heard the screams and ran to the bathroom.

perez continues to be a moron- ontd gets a mention


James Cameron’s Avatar opened this weekend and narrowly missed setting the record for largest December debut of all time. The groundbreaking CGI epic made $77 million once the actual numbers were posted Monday afternoon, just $185,840 shy of the Will Smith starrer I Am Legend ($585M worldwide total).

Avatar also managed $232 million worldwide, the biggest global opening for a non-sequel in the history of cinema.

Not bad for a failure. Seeking new ways to grab attention, Perez Hilton blogged, “The most expensive movie ever made has FAILED at the box office,” citing an erroneous claim that the movie was made for $500 million.

He neglected to inform his readers of the record 3D and IMAX sales, which explains why some audiences may be waiting for a show that isn’t sold out with this premium technology. Not even a hint of its strong word of mouth that will easily carry the movie through January. Not to mention expert opinion, who believe the 20th Century Fox movie is destined to recoup and then some.

Of course, Hilton compares it to The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which put up impressive, record-breaking numbers last month before dropping like a rock the following weekend once the Twi-hards had received an eyeful of shirtlessness.

Hilton’s blog typically copies and pastes stories from others (like the jackals at OhNoTheyDidn’t) before providing punctuation-laden commentary that shaves IQ points from its readers. This time the gossip queen attempted original content and wound up looking more ridiculous than going out of the house looking like this.

I’ll tell you what’s disappointing. No scribbling on the Avatar poster in Perez’s box office coverage! No juvenile drawings of penises or childlike captions that scream “LOSER!” Maybe the mother of all Internet attention whores is slipping. I’m sure I’m telling you what you already know at this point, but Perez Hilton is a douche.

Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Indie Bands



Inspired by Lauren Leto’s “Stereotyping People By Their Favorite Author,” we realized the incredible potential for a mercilessly judgmental list of indie band stereotypes. It is a common fact that Cormac McCarthy readers are men who don’t eat cream cheese, but what about those who listen to The XX on repeat and The Flaming Lips on hallucinogens? They need labels, too. After the jump, in collaboration with contributor Jeff Luppino-Esposito, we lay down the reckless assumptions.

Girlicious' New Single "Over You"



Girlicious has released the first single from their sophomore album entitled "Over You" to Canadian radio this past week. The track is the follow-up to their highly successful debut album which was certified platinum in Canada. Girlicious (made up of Chrystina Sayers, Nichole Cordova and Natalie Mejia) were formed on the reality TV show "Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious" and initially included a fourth member, Tiffanie Anderson. Anderson departed the group last year after their label decided they wanted to go in a different direction with the group.

"Over You" will be used to try and break into the United States, where their debut album was never even released, despite all four original members being American and formed on an American reality show.

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning may never escape to Coney Island together again, but that doesn't stop the younger of the two from sharing warm fuzzies about their time together.

"I got to know Brittany when we made the film Uptown Girls," the New Moon cutie said in a statement. "We became great friends despite the fact we were many years apart in age. Brittany had such a warm child-like spirit that drew people to her. With her goes a piece of my heart and I will miss her terribly. I know how strong Brittany's love was for her family and my heart goes out to all of them, especially her mother Sharon. I love you Brittany."

The hilarious January Jones has renewed her contract with 'Mad Men'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

When we last saw Betty Draper, she was on a plane to Reno with Henry Francis by her side. Was that the end of her story, especially since Don Draper’s undoubtedly going to go on without her? Well, Matthew Weiner doesn’t like to give away much about the future, but January Jones has renewed her contract with Mad Men.

Weiner confirmed it and spoke about some other bits and pieces from the Mad Men finale. He was in a giving mood. It wasn’t just the holiday season, either. Mad Men had a great week in award nominations — Golden Globes, Writers Guild and Screen Actors Guild.

First, Betty — I mean January. According to Weiner, “January’s contract has been renewed.” As for Betty as a character, Weiner referred to one of his writers, Lisa Albert, explaining that the relationship with Henry is crucial to Betty. “Betty will go through this process while learning the least amount possible.” Despite the fact that Betty and Henry have yet to make love, they are heading to a wedding. It seems improbable in today’s sensibility, but Weiner’s story is set in 1963.

Why would Betty want Henry? “He’s a handsome guy who says, ‘You’ll never have to work again.’ A lot of women like that. … Henry has been good to her, and I think she knows what he’s about, and he’s a very exciting person for her. I think he’s the anti-Don in the sense that he seems very grounded. All I can tell you is that, as a pregnant woman, when he treated her sexually at a party, something happened in her brain chemistry.”

Lisa Loeb Debuts A New Collection Of Eyewear

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Though Lisa Loeb rose to fame as a singer, she’s probably just as well known for her eyeglasses. Loeb is finally cashing in on her signature look, partnering with Classique Eyewear on a line of frames called “The LL Collection.” “People have been asking me about my eyewear style for years. Finally I decided – why not design my own line – so other people can see the world like I do,” she says. The new series includes streamlined pieces in black and tortoiseshell, as well as embellished options punctuated with rhinestones and etchings. “I worked with Classique Eyewear to design a line that represents the look I love: one that can be worn from day into night, that’s classic but stylish, that frames the face and lifts the eyes, but doesn’t speak before you have a chance to,” she declares. The star goes on to describe her aesthetic: “My eyewear generally has a cat-eyed look. Think sexy librarian, not retro grandma,” and says that her new collection was created largely for “women with style,” but that “some frames are more unisex and could look cute on stylish men, too!” Each item is named after one of her songs, and will be available for purchase in spring of next year.

If you thought Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrara were going to last, you can just fuhgeddaboudit.

The two, who had been dating since October 2008, have decided to go their separate ways, according to a source close to the "Sopranos" actress.

Rumors started swirling when Sigler showed up solo for last Tuesday's screening of "It's Complicated" at the W Hotel in L.A.

"She came with a few girlfriends, and they drank wine all night. They looked like they were having a good time," a partygoer dished, confirming that Ferrara was nowhere in sight.

Sigler was next spotted out and about over the weekend in NYC with longtime pal Lance Bass. The two stopped by Susan Sarandon's Ping-Pong bar Spin in Gramercy on Thursday night and went shopping together in the Meatpacking District on Friday. Later that night, they checked out "Burn the Floor," which stars Bass' former "Dancing With the Stars" cohorts Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kym Johnson.

"Lance is a really good friend to Jamie," the source says. "He's been helping her out and giving her good advice."

A partygoer at Spin noticed that Jamie-Lynn looked like she was having a blast with her bud.

"They were playing Ping-Pong and laughing, and it didn't seem like she was sad or anything was wrong. Lance was being really funny and entertaining her."

Our source says Sigler is indeed distressed about the split - which the snitch says was mutual - but adds that she's going to be just fine. "It came at a good time for Jamie-Lynn. She was coming home to New York for the holidays anyway, and she wanted to do her own thing for a little while and definitely be out of Hollywood."

Meanwhile, Ferrara spent his weekend gallivanting in L.A. - a spy inside West Hollywood hot spot Voyeur saw the HBO star enjoying himself on Saturday night with Kevin Connolly and quite a large female "Entourage."

"Kevin and Jerry arrived around 11 with a group of girls," a source inside the club said. "They were dancing and hanging out and didn't leave until after 2 a.m."

No word on whether Ferrara, who is originally from Brooklyn, will be coming home for the holidays as well ... but let's hope this city is big enough for the both of them.

Muse had never watched SNL before performing on the show last week?? OH SNAP.



Capping off a successful 2009, Muse appeared as the musical guest on 'Saturday Night Live' in an episode hosted by actor James Franco. The UK rockers performed 'Uprising,' the lead single off their latest album 'The Resistance,' as well as 'Starlight,' their hit single from 2006's 'Black Holes and Revelations.'

Although the band knew that playing 'SNL' was a great opportunity, drummer Dominic Howard confessed to Spinner that they're not exactly familiar with the show. "To be honest, none of us have ever really seen it before," he said before the taping. "I know it's this huge, big American institution and everyone watches it, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it's all about. I've seen a few like classic band performances on it, like Nirvana in '92. I'm excited to be doing it."

The gig marked only the band's second appearance on American television, following their performance of 'Uprising' at the MTV VMAs. Rather than play at Radio City, the trio recorded their gig at the nearby, Kanye-free Walter Kerr Theatre. "That particular thing was a really cool experience because we were in our own theater and effectively did our own gig," Howard said. "Even though it's only song that went out on the air for MTV, we actually played for about an hour and filled the whole place up with like 900 fans. It was a really fun experience."

Fresh off a tour opening for U2, Muse next heads to Asia and Australia before returning to North America for a headlining tour in late February. In the meantime, check out clips of their 'SNL' performances below.

'Nurse Jackie' Drops Mo-Mo!

 

I hate to be the bearer of rotten news just three days before Christmas, but I just learned that one of my (and no doubt your) favorite Nurse Jackie characters will not be returning for the show’s upcoming second season.

I’m taking about Mohammed “Mo-Mo” De La Cruz, the sasstastic gay nurse played by Haaz Sleiman. A Showtime rep confirmed that Sleiman is no longer with the acclaimed dramedy (which returns on March 22), but provided no further details.

Adding insult to injury, I just screened the first two episodes of Season 2 and Mo-Mo’s departure isn’t even addressed. Not even his best bud Jackie acknowledges his absence. It’s as if he never existed!

Not cool. Not cool at all.

I don't know about you ONTDers, but Mo-mo was a HUGE part of the show, and I don't know if it will be the same now. :( And they've already filmed the entire season, so I don't think there's any chance of him coming back. :(

Avatar: an environmentalist movie

Don't just watch Avatar, see it

There's a delicious irony in the fact that James Cameron has made a greenie movie that is the world's most expensive.

That he is urging us to put the brakes on our rapacious appetite for consumption with a film that has prompted many cinema owners to upgrade their biggest screens to 3D. That he has made an anti-military film that celebrates his love of warrior machines. That he reportedly directed his anti-authoritarian missive with all the cuddliness of Josef Stalin the morning after a three-bottles-of-vodka bender.


But don’t let any of that blind you to the virtues of Avatar, because they are immense.

Much of the chatter right now is about the "game-changing" special effects, and that's fair enough. There's a real sense that this will be the film that finally makes 3D cinema, which has been around since the 1950s, a mainstream form of storytelling rather than a mere freak show.

If that happens it will be because Avatar makes so little show of its 3D capabilities. Yes, everything looks like you could touch it, but there are no gratuitous hands looming out of the screen, no rollercoaster rides to show just how in-your-face the format can be, no flinging of dirt or spurting of blood or shooting of weapons into the middle of our gaze. The gaudily 3D moments are few, and generally at the margins of the screen: a flick of dirt as the hero Jake Sully's avatar runs for the first time through a field of corn; the passing of a spear tip off the side of the screen; the wafting of a fern frond at the bottom of the picture. Avatar's great leap forward is in shifting the technology of 3D from centrescreen to background. It's a movement from flashiness to modesty, from immaturity to maturity, from showboating to storytelling.

Scott and I were marching with the drums, I imagined us being on the front line of a war. It was my way of saying that it doesn’t matter if you are man, women, gay or straight. We should all be able to come together and fight for a certain cause no matter who you are. And once we truly figure that out, then that’s when we grow as people.”

Trailer for 'Knight and Day,' Starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz



The trailer for the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz action comedy "Knight and Day" is now online. The embed code doesn't work for LJ, so you have to click on the source link below to view. Opening on July 2, 2010, "Knight and Day" also stars Peter Saarsgard, Viola Davis, Olivier Martinez, Paul Dano, Maggie Grace and Mark Blucas.

Here's the official synopsis: "Knight and Day" centers on a lonely woman (Diaz) whose seemingly harmless blind date suddenly turns her life upside-down when a super spy (Cruise) takes her on a violent worldwide journey to protect a powerful battery that holds the key to an infinite power source.

Here's the link to the trailer, via ComingSoon.net

Not the best trailer, but I like Tom and Cameron in these types of roles, so I'll probably check it out. I wish they would have made this 10 years ago, when they weren't so haggard looking. Anyone remember "Vanilla Sky"? The best part of that movie was when Cameron screams "I swallowed your cum!" before driving them both off of a bridge. Hopefully there will be something just as LOL-worthy in this movie.

Timbaland Says That He's Done With Hip Hop

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

First emerging and becoming heavily submerged into the music scene back around 1996, Timbaland has been known as the go-to guy when it came to having a producer on an album.

His track record speaks for itself as he has worked with artists such as Lil Kim, Jay-Z, the L.O.X., LL Cool and Xzibit, along with staying loyal to his own click with Missy Elliot and introducing the world to Bubba Sparxx.

Now feeling that the generation he came from has now left, Timbo has decided to pack his bags as well and leave Hip Hop in the past.

His past release, Shock Value I and the newly released sequel has shown him working extensively with acts outside of the rap regime and enlisting the help of Katy Perry, Daughtry and even Miley Cyrus to create a pulse for his beats.

While with MTV, the producer spoke on making the transition and how he realized that the consumer isn't really looking out for Hip Hop music anymore or willing to actually go out and make a purchase.

"I know 75 percent [of the people who buy my album] are women who love Timbaland and most are the women who watch Desperate Housewives and all those others. I did this research. It's the women who watch Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives — all the real go-to-the-bar women like Timbaland, and mostly European women. It lets me know that my fanbase is mostly women and they are from all cultures. So it's not a person who loves mostly Hip Hop. It's a person who loves everything besides Hip Hop."

He also adds that this new mentality is nothing that was spur of the moment and that his time with the genre had come to a close quite some time ago.

"I was done with Hip Hop a long time ago. Once my generation left, I left. I do it, but there's nobody from my generation besides Jay who's doing it. I look at Lil Wayne as being from my generation. Some people are still acceptable. Kanye is acceptable from my generation.

So it seems now that some rappers might have to look for a special invitation to be granted permission to work with Timbaland. Drake was privileged enough to receive such an honor with “Say Something”, but in all honesty, who really helped who with that feature?

As the pages continue to turn and the landscape of Hip Hop remains ever-changing, who else from the old day will finally bow out and let the curtains close?

Kourtney Kardashian’s Baby Daddy May Be A Rapper, Not Scott Disick?



Friends of Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick may want to reconsider buying a monogrammed gift for the couple's new son, Mason Dash Disick, who was born Monday. That’s because a handsome young model has come forward to claim that he — not Scott — may be the daddy! In our Dec. 28 issue, we report that Kim's big sister had a fling with Michael Girgenti — a 23-year-old model and aspiring rapper, who goes by the stage name of Premo Stallone. A close friend of the Kardashian sisters confirmed they'd been intimate, saying: "Kourtney hooked up with Michael twice while she and Scott were on the outs. He's definitely been mentioned as a possibility for being the father of her baby."





Though a rep for Kourtney insists Scott’s the dad, when Star asked Michael if there’s a possibility he fathered the baby, he replied: "You could say that, yeah." Source

Taylor Lautner lands another movie role .



Taylor Lautner keeps pinning down roles in high profile films.

The 17-year-old is reportedly in talks to star in a remake of 1985's 'Vision Quest.' The original high school drama starred Matthew Modine as a driven, jock wrestler and Linda Fiorentino as an older, artsy type who threatens to distract him. (The film might be best remembered, though, for a young Madonna's cameo as a lounge singer, belting out the '80s-tastic 'Crazy for You.')

Lautner is presumably in talks for the Modine role. No word yet on who his older love interest might be, or if Madonna might return.

This is just the latest in a number of recent rumored projects for the 'Twilight: New Moon' star. Just last week, we reported that Lautner, an award-winning martial artist, could take on the lead role in 'Cancun', which has been described as a "'Taken'-meets-'Die Hard'" action thriller about a spring breaking college student whose girlfriend is kidnapped by Mexican drug cartels. He's also in talks to star in the film adaptation of 'Max Steel', based on the CGI cartoon about an extreme sports star who becomes a robotic crime fighter.

Lautner can next be seen in the upcoming ensemble comedy 'Valentine's Day,' along side his rumored real-life love interest, Taylor Swift. 'Valentine's Day' hits theaters on February 12, 2010.

Shakira in Uruguay


Shakira
enjoys her vacation in South America with boyfriend Antonio de La Rua at her farm “La Colorada” in Uruguay on Sunday (December 20).


The 32-year-old singer is featured in AOL’s Spinner site, which has just published its Artists and Songs of the Decade lists. “Hips Don’t Lie” is named the 42nd best song of the decade, while Shakira herself is the 24th best artist.


“With a name like Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, it’s no wonder this Colombian dynamo answers to her first name only, Spinner said. “After crossing over into the English-speaking market in a very big way, she has earned the right to one-name superstardom.”

Christmas Comes Early for Clifford .... remains sexy while doing so

Photobucket


By Nedra Rhone
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Atlanta rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris Jr., was released from prison Tuesday morning after serving about 7 months at a low-security penitentiary in Forrest City, Ark. He is expected to serve the remainder of a reduced sentence in a correctional center near Fulton County Airport.

Harris' attorney Steve Sadow, who confirmed Harris' release, said it is "not out of the ordinary."

Harris was sentenced to a year and a day in prison for weapons charges resulting from an October 2007 incident when he was arrested for sending a bodyguard to purchase machine guns and silencers. Sadow said prisoners sentenced to 366 days are eligible for a 54-day sentence reduction for good behavior. The Bureau of Prisons will consider a prisoner with six months or less remaining on his or her sentence for a halfway house. Harris was expected to report to Dismas Charities Atlanta West on Tuesday evening, Sadow said. He will remain there for about three months and will have to abide by the rules of that particular house. Typically, halfway house residents are allowed to leave the house during regular work hours and are allowed more contact with their families and communities.

Once Harris completes his time in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons in late March, he will still have to finish serving just under 500 hours of community service and about 23 days of home incarceration, Sadow said.

Still, it all seems to have worked out quite well for the platinum-selling recording artist who has had some 32 past arrests for weapons violations and a conviction for dealing crack cocaine. What could have been a 10-year prison sentence was dramatically reduced by a plea agreement, in which Harris was asked to publicly speak out about the error of his ways. That included talking to youth groups about avoiding the kind of life he has led, and a bonus MTV series (which did not count toward his community service credits) called "T.I.'s Road to Redemption."

CATSCRATCH IS COMIN BACK Y'ALL



Diana Vickers will release her debut single 'Once' on April 19, it has been revealed.

The song was co-penned by Cathy Dennis, the songwriter behind Kylie Minogue's 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head', and Eg White, whose credits include Will Young's 'Leave Right Now' and Adele's 'Chasing Pavements'.

According to a press release from concert promoters SJM, 'Once' is a "quirky, synth-based single" featuring the hook: "I'm only going to let you kill me once."

Vickers's currently-untitled debut album, which features collaborations with Ellie Goulding, Guy Sigsworth and Lightspeed Champion, will follow in late April.

She will preview material from the record on her first headline tour - announced earlier today - which kicks off at Bristol Cooler on March 20.

The 18-year-old singer, who finished fourth on The X Factor in 2008, is currently appearing in the West End production of The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice.

DanRad, Michael Urie & David Hyde Pierce? WIN!!!!

Well, DanRad's in NYC for the reading of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" along with the amazing Michael Urie (who tweeted about it today) and the most fabulous David Hyde Pierce.

Michael read for D.Hyde Pierce's  nephew and DanRad's nemesis.



First things first. Daniel Radcliffe was AMAZING. He interpreted the role in a charming, adorable and fresh way. He sang great. I think everyone was there to see if he could do it. And boy, he really did it. He was great. He came off as a full-fledged musical star. Those of us who saw him in Equus know he has the stage chops as a dramatic actor but now I can say that he could easily take Broadway by storm as a musical comedy star, too. After that final Harry Potter movie comes out, this guy can do whatever he wants in any medium. I loved him. And it seems to me that he is the youngest actor to play the role of Finch. And his youth made the show feel fresh and new. It had a new kind of innocence to contrast the cynicism of the world he is in.

More pics from Lindsay Lohan's beach photo shoot



Getting into the holiday spirit in a big way, Lindsay Lohan took part in a beach photo shoot in Santa Monica, California on Sunday (December 20).

The “Mean Girls” actress looked to be in a good mood as she pranced around in the sand sporting a cleavage-baring blue swimsuit with a red Santa Claus hat. In between sessions, LiLo caught up on the latest drama surrounding Tiger Woods while reading the new issue of Newsweek magazine.

Lindsay will be spending the Christmas holiday with her family in New York City, as she arrived into JFK International Airport last night (December 21).

Shakira is a flop (in the United States)



Unless your name is Taylor Swift or Michael Jackson, it’s been yet another tough year for pop stars. New discs from the likes of U2, Mariah Carey, Tim McGraw, Bon Jovi, 50 Cent and Norah Jones have sharply underperformed. Overall U.S. album sales in 2009 are on track to slide for the eighth time in nine years.

Shakira is the latest addition to the casualty list. The Colombian sex symbol’s electronica-fueled new album looks to be her weakest performer in almost 10 years. “She Wolf,” Shakira’s third English-language recording, currently stands at No. 43 on the Billboard 200, two weeks after debuting at No. 15 with puny sales of 89,000 units. Sales to date stand at 158,000 — equivalent to what current Billboard 200 champ Susan Boyle’s debut album sold in its first 1.5 days, last month.

Shakira’s label is not too worried. “After a four year hiatus, Shakira came back with a great album and we are very happy with its progress, this project was never about the first month for us,” said a spokeswoman for Epic Records.

In the not-to-miss episode, tensions run high as the contestants are pitted against each other to see who can design the most boundary-pushing, Gaga-esque outfit. We can’t wait to see what the surrealist-chic chameleon will wear on-air — will she herself be able to outdo the shimmery 30 foot long crimson red gown she donned to perform “Bad Romance” at the request of Blair Waldorf? And how will Gaga react to the cast members as they attempt to channel her look? Tune in at 10PM EST January 6 on Bravo.

kim kardashian's KLASSY carl's jr commerical.

 
Kim Kardashian’s new commercial for Carl’s Jr. has been released. Kimmie decided to take the healthy route while promoting the West Coast fast food joining, chowing down on the new Cranberry Apple Walnut Chicken Salad. With the tag line, “Who said salads can’t be hot,” Kim enjoys her salad dressed in a see through robe and black lingerie while sprawling across her luxurious bed, followed by a bubble bath. Even though Kim decided to take a different route — when it comes to food selection — from previous Carl’s Jr. ladies like Paris Hilton and Audrina Patridge, there is still plenty of sex appeal in her twist on the commercial. The reality is all about staying fit these days, the reason behind her trading in the juicy cheeseburger for a heart-healthy salad.

Carrie Underwood Makes All The Single Ladies Feel Like Crap

Carrie Underwood Debuts Her Engagement Ring!

title or description


Carrie Underwood certainly has a lot to smile about this holiday season. The newly engaged 26 year-old country singer turned up at her fiancé Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher’s game last night flashing some major sparkle on her left hand. A spokesperson from the Diamond Information Center estimates the brilliant round diamond comes in at whopping five-plus carats, with an estimated value of close to $150,000. Whew! Underwood, who famously declared her affection for her beau in the liner notes of her recent album, Play On (“I love you so much!” she wrote. “You make my life better in every way! I thank God for you every day.”), accepted Fisher’s proposal on Sunday, following a year-long courtship.

Johnson beats Federer, Bolt for athlete of year


CHARLOTTE, N.C. - There was little recognition outside the racing world when Jimmie Johnson won his first NASCAR championship.

Same with his second, and again with his third.

But four straight championships? That’s a different story.

Johnson, the first driver in NASCAR history to win four consecutive titles, earned mainstream recognition Monday when he was honored as the Male Athlete of the Year by members of The Associated Press.

Johnson received 42 votes from editors at U.S. newspapers which are members of the AP. Tennis star Roger Federer (30 votes) and Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt (29) were the only other athletes with totals in the double- digits.

Although Tiger Woods was named Athlete of the Decade, the golfer received only nine votes for Athlete of the Year. He was tied with NBA star Kobe Bryant and slugger Albert Pujols in fourth place. Woods, who was ranked No. 1 in his sport but failed to win one of golf’s majors this season, was never a top contender — even before the sex scandal that unraveled his personal life following a Nov. 27 traffic accident.

For Johnson, the first race car driver to be named the AP’s Athlete of the Year in its 78-year history, the award is the validation he’s been waiting for since he began his historic run in 2006.

“We’d been wondering the last few years, ’When is this going to hit?”’ he said. “It seems like the answer is now. The wave is finally peaking, and we don’t know where it’s going to take us. The fourth straight title takes it out of our sport and makes it a point of discussion — like, ’Wow, a race car driver won this thing.”’

EXCLUSIVE: Britney Co-Conservatorship To Continue


It was an expensive day in court Tuesday for Britney Spears. In a Los Angeles courtroom Commissioner Reva Goetz ordered the co-conservatorship of Britney Spears to continue, with her father, Jamie Spears, to continue to receive $16k a month for his duties as conservator of his daughter.

Goetz also ordered the co-conservator of Britney, Andrew Wallet, to be paid $174,569.10 for services rendered from July 2009-November 2009.

In addition Goetz ordered Jamie's attorneys to be paid $183,918 and attorney Joel Boxer to be paid $62,965.06. Another law firm was ordered to be paid $50k. Jamie Spears was also allowed to continue to receive $1200 for office space.

Samuel Ingham, the court appointed attorney for Britney Spears, said in court that, "She [Britney] accepted the accounting as filed and had no objection to it."

Other housekeeping issues concerned continuing to seal all medical and certain business transactions because of "trade secrets" and the commissioner also increased the bond for the conservatorship from $1 million dollars to $25 million. Bond is similar to insurance in conservatorship cases, so if anything were to happen to Britney's money she would be covered and reimbursed.

The next court hearing is scheduled for January 14th. Fees for Laura Wasser, Brit's legal ace divorce attorney will be dealt with at that time.

And, while he confirms that doctors at the hospital told him she died of cardiac arrest, all he can do is eliminate possible origins of that heart failure.Collapse )

Lynne Curtin and her husband Frank were supposed to appear in a Southern California courtroom yesterday to answer questions relating to a $1.2 million judgment they were ordered to pay to a former business partner -- but the couple completely bailed on the proceedings. Now a judge in Riverside County, CA has issued a bench warrant for both Lynne and Frank's arrest. It's been a rough year for Lynne's fam -- as TMZ previously reported, they were also evicted from their home back in August for not paying rent.

Twilight Spawns Its Own Reality Show in Forks, WA




First, life imitated art when The O.C. became the inspiration for a little reality show called Laguna Beach. Then, Desperate Housewives served as the basis for the original Real Housewives, and now it looks like The Twilight Saga may be spawning its own reality show too.

Once upon a time, Forks, WA was a sleepy little town in the middle of nowhere, but thanks to Stephanie Meyers, who set the Twilight books in Forks, the town has become the destination for fans of the franchise. There is even a documentary about the community called "Twilight in Forks," which will be released on DVD with "New Moon." So its no surprise that reality TV execs have come knockin' on Forks' door looking for the next big reality TV stars.

A Los Angeles-based television production company is holding a casting call in Forks today and tomorrow for a reality show that would star local residents. The casting call will take place at the Twilight Lounge at 81 North Forks Ave. Today's casting call starts at noon and ends by 4 p.m. On Wednesday interviews will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

If the show is picked up by a network it probably won't feature any real life vampires but it will surely have a few love triangles and cat fights, after all, isn't that what reality TV is all about?

After her campaign last month to Glee creator/writer Ryan Murphy for a scene in song, Murphy seems to have given in, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"I have read the first two episodes and I can tell you that I will be singing and dancing," Lynch told EW. "I can't tell you what I'm singing because it's top-secret."

Asked for a hint, Lynch channeled Sue: "It's a very cold song."

AOL has the first review of 'Animal,' the debut soon-to-be-diamond-certified album of the Alcoholic of Pop, Kesha



This album is fierce. Ke$ha's debut 'Animal' shows that although the sound is glittery electro-pop, the lyrics are far from dainty: "I don't care where you live at, just turn around boy and let me hit that / Don't be a little b---- with your chit chat, just show me where your d---- at." And this is just one of her songs (specifically 'Blah Blah Blah' featuring 3OH!3) off her 13-track album dropping Jan. 5. The 22-year-old Nashville-raised singer -- who has written for Miley and the Veronicas -- got her breakthrough on Flo Rida's 'Right Round' and now has a the charting single 'Tik Tok,' which muses about the singer's crazy night out partying. With other notable songs heavy on auto-synth beats: 'Take It Off,' (reminiscent of a six-grade camp ditty, and you'll know what I mean when you hear it), 'Kiss N Tell' and bubblegum 'Your Love is My Drug,' the singer is backed by music producer Dr. Luke (who had previously worked with Britney Spears). To listen to a selection of songs from 'Animal,' go to AOL Radio's New Pop First station.

Tennant 'greatest Doctor of all'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

David Tennant has been voted the greatest Doctor Who of all time in a new poll.

And fans questioned by Gocompare.com would rather have Ewan McGregor, or even Russell Brand, as the next Time Lord than David's actual successor, Matt Smith.

Asked to vote for their favourite Doctor, almost 46 per cent of the 2,000 polled chose David Tennant, who bows out in the Christmas special this year.

Moulin Rouge star Ewan was the number one choice to be the next doctor with 21 per cent of the votes, while Matt Smith, who is taking on the role in the BBC show came in sixth place, behind My Family's Kris Marshall, Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies, Russell Brand and Stephen Fry.

Some fans believe it's time to see the Time Lord reincarnated in female form, with Catherine Tate, Anna Friel and Jo Brand as the most popular choices. Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding was also among the choices to play the first female Doctor Who.

It’s something of a small miracle that Michael Cerveris is still standing. The Tony Award winner (the versatile stage star won for his performance in Assassins in 2004 and scored three additional nominations for Tommy, Sweeney Todd and Love/Musik) routinely manages to cram what seems like three days of work and activities into just 24 hours. Cerveris neighborhood-hops across Manhattan (when he’s not being shipped overnight on his one day off to Vancouver to film episodes of Fringe) at a pace that would leave lesser talents sprawled out in the street, exhausted.

He's thickened around the waist and his hair has grayed, yet the boyish charm remains. As 58-year-old Jake in Nancy Meyers' It's Complicated, which opens on Friday, Alec Baldwin (for the record: 51 years of age) epitomizes the ladies' man gone only slightly to seed. He exudes a husky masculinity, his face cracking wide open with joy when he unexpectedly beds his ex-wife Jane (Meryl Streep).

Billy Bush Drove Nancy O'Dell to Drink

Billy Bush's tantrums led to Nancy O'Dell's exit from 'Access Hollywood'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

look at this motherfucker right here

Nancy O'Dell will miss a lot of things about "Access Hollywood," but her co-host Billy Bush certainly isn't one of them.

A source insists that O'Dell's premature departure from the show, which she appeared on since 1996 (and with Bush since 2004), is because Billy isn't exactly an ideal co-worker.

"The atmosphere at ‘Access Hollywood' is like walking on a landmine because of Billy," the insider dishes. "He throws tantrums and tirades and oftentimes for no apparent reason. It was one of several things that had Nancy at her wit's end after 13 years."

And she didn't go without a fight, either - our source insists she complained numerous times to executive producer Rob Silverstein about Bush's behavior, but to no avail.

"Nancy was still subjected to Billy's outbursts and blow-ups on set, just like everyone else was," the snitch says, adding that Bush's diva-esque behavior is because he "really wants to be the next Ryan Seacrest."

"Billy would go so far as to curse out producers for not writing the copy in a way he liked it, and would really go off if they assigned him to read a story that he felt was beneath him."

So why did he get away with such behavior? Bush and Silverstein are buddies and partners on "The Billy Bush Show," the syndicated nighttime talk radio show that Bush does on the side - and O'Dell accused Silverstein of playing favorites among the co-hosts, according to the source. At least O'Dell came out on top with one part of the "Access Hollywood" family - she was revered by the show's crew.

"People gasped at the news and many began to cry," the insider insists of last Thursday's staff meeting, when the producers announced that Nancy would be leaving.

A rep for O'Dell said: "Nancy's decision was based solely on her desire to take her career to the next level and is completely amicable." A rep for Bush didn't return calls for comment by deadline.

A rep for Access Hollywood says: "Any rumors regarding on-set issues between Nancy O'Dell and Billy Bush are unfounded and completely false. We continue to support Nancy's decision and wish her all the best."
