The 26-year-old St. Petersburg, Fla. native also known as Big Mike was touted one of the early favorites to win the show. However his numerous appearances in the bottom two made his elimination not so surprising. According to Ryan Seacrest, almost 37 million votes were cast this week, the most this season.
“It’s been unbelievable, man,” he said. “I just sit here right now and I think, ‘I wasn’t even supposed to be here.’ Thank God for the judges saving me, I got to spend more time here, and be with the people, perform for my wife, you know? It’s all good, man.”
Michael had performed Michael Jackson’s“Will You Be There” on Tuesday’s movie-themed performance night.
And this brings up to the final three. Casey James, Lee DeWyze, and Crystal Bowersox now have a one in three chance of winning a $1 million recording contract. The three will also be filmed visiting their home towns and their fans next week.

Things continue to take a turn for the worst for Jill Zarin, aka the most hated housewife in Bravo’s history.
First, her fellow NYC Housewife Alex McCord, had some true but harsh words for Jill in a new interview. Alex weighed in on the Amazongatecontroversy (Jill Zarin using a fake name to leave a good review for her book, while bashing others who left her a bad review) and had the following to say: “I think that’s kind of against the rules,” Alex told The Boston Herald. “I think it’s unethical. I think you don’t review your own book and you also don’t comment on other people’s reviews.”
When asked if Jill could be responsible for a suspicious bad review written about her book, Alex doesn’t put it past her castmate. “I will say that unfortunately,” says Alex. “Jill does kind of have a history of this. Whenever she perceives a fight, she fights back pretty dirty and that’s unfortunate.”
And if anyone thinks our good ol Jill could be possibly turning over a new leaf, well think again! A new story written by the NYDailyNews on Monday, has an interesting quote from random “source” defending Jill in the article about her prematurely announcing Bethenny Frankel’s birth. The “source,” whom we shall refer to as Susan Saunders, said the following in an attempt to defend Jill: “Everyone is lashing out at Jill because of what they see on television – but in reality, if it had been any of the other “Housewives” who had made the mistake Jill did, no one would blink an eye,” says the source. “Bethenny has complained in the past Jill just can’t be happy for her, but she’s obviously making the effort.”
For anyone doubting Jill is behind this story, the NYDailyNews is the same news organization that published the stories about Alex & Simon being kicked off the show, and the infamous story about Bethenny being friendless. Jill has been accused of planting both stories in the press, so it’s not a big surprise she’s pretending to be a source and attempting to defend herself.
And in what would have made a great addition to our Is Jill Zarin Losing It? story, We apparently missed this post written by Jill over the weekend, during which she threatens to delete or block fans who say negative things to her.
“I was told B had a boy yesterday and just wanted to congratulate. I did not try to “scoop” anything. Why do people assume bad intentions. It was on the local LXTV news so big deal, I said congrats. Obviously the news half right and half wrong as she had a baby girl. If you are not a fan..you need to blog somewhere else or YES..you will be blocked and deleted. Enough.”
Good to see her taking the high road and holding it all together. There was also an article in the NYPost yesterday which a source (assuming not Jill this go around) says Jill was being a tad greedy during a swag event, and asking everyone for freebies. “It’s not like she can’t afford to buy these things,” said one of the boutique owners. “She had such a sense of entitlement, as if to say, ‘You need to give me things for free because I’m Jill Zarin’. “
And finally, some Real Housewives of NYC fans have started a petition to try to get Jill off the show. As of today, over 690 fans have signed the petition. While I dislike Jill as much as the next person, I actually think she’s good for the show. I mean every show needs a villain after all right?

Next week is the semifinals of Dancing With The Stars, and one star who won’t be dancing isNiecy Nash, as the comedian and former ‘Reno 911′ star found herself eliminated from the dance competition.
In the bottom two with Niecy this week was NFL star Chad Ochocinco. Niecy’s elimination did not come as a big shocker as she did receive the lowest scores this week, a total of 43 for her two dances.
Niecy managed to keep her sense of humor despite being voted off. “I am a 40-year-old mother of three. I’ve got three C-sections under my belt and I… I was able to survive in this competition this long?… I’ve been able to be one of the last women standing in this competition. I’ve had such a fantastic time being able to live out my dream… I’m a happy girl,” said Niecy.
Niecy also had some nice words for her pro partner Louis van Amstel, “Thank you for molding this lump of clay into something,” she said.
Stars Nicole Scherzinger, Erin Andrews, Evan Lysacek and Chad Ochocinco remain in the competition. One more celebrity will be eliminated next week, with the remaining three making it on to the finals.
Spencer had some choice words for his wife, Heidi Montag’s mother, on the latest episode of the Hills. Apparently the vile reality star’s disdain for his mom-in-law stems from Darlene’s criticism of Heidi’s unnecessary 10 plastic surgery procedures, all which she had done in one day.
“How do I go and say that of course I thought you were more beautiful before?” said Darlene to Heidi on a previous episode. “I thought you were younger, I thought you were fresher-looking, I thought you were healthier.”
Spencer, 26, then decided to snap during last night’s episode, saying the following about his wife’s mom. “She’s not God,” said Spencer. “She didn’t make Heidi. She’s just a vagina!”
And it doesn’t end there. Spencer’s attack of Darlene continues both on and off the show. According to TMZ, a bank in Colorado is foreclosing on an undeveloped piece of property owned by Darlene, on which she owes $187,385.62 on a $189k loan she took out in 2006.
Spencer was then reached for comment, and he had the following to say, “If that’s true … that is the best news I’ve heard all day long.”
And the clock continues to tick on his 15 minutes…
Jon and Kate Gosselin were photographed together yesterday, for the first time in months.
The big event was the birthday for their sextuplets, as the six kids turned 6 years old yesterday. According to UsWeekly, later that day, Jon took Alexis, Aaden, Collin, Leah, Hannah, and Joel and his twins, Mady and Cara, out for a few hours to celebrate. He was later spotted shooting Silly String at photographers.
Kate, 35, is reported to have thrown her sextuplets a pool party at their $1.1 million Pennsylvania home on Sunday.
In other news, TLC also announced recently that Kate’s new show, Kate Plus 8, will premiere June 6 on TLC. As we previously reported, Kate Plus 8 will be similar to the old show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, but without Jon of course.
Jon also reportedly wants back on the show as a means to earn more money. According to numerous reports, Jon, who is currently jobless, is going broke and cannot afford to pay his $22,000-a-month child support. TLC is however not too keen on having Jon back on their network.
The five remaining stars on season 10 of Dancing With The Stars were described as the Perfectionist, the Football Hero, the Golden Boy, the Pussycat and the Jiggly One.
One thing that became very clear last night was that the ‘Pussycat’ is the one to beat this season. Nicole Scherzinger and her partner Derek Hough were almost perfect last night. The dancing couple received a total score of 59 for their two dances, even receiving a perfect score of 30 for their 1950s-style paso doble.
Tying for second place are Olympic skater Evan Lysacek, and ESPN reporter Erin Andrews. Both stars received a total score of 53 for the night. While Nicole came in first place last night, stealing the show was Erin and her partner Maksim, for their very hot and aggressive Argentine tango, which included a flying leap by Erin off the stage and onto Maksim’s shoulders. “Hot!” declared Carrie Ann Inaba, and “Loved it!” added Len, who actually gave the duo a 10 score.
At the bottom of the pack this week are Niecy Nash and Chad Ochocinco. Niecy came in last place with a total score of 43, and not too far up is Chad with a total score of 45 for his two dances.
Tonight is elimination night, as we are just 2 weeks away from the finale. Only 3 couples will make it to the May 24th finale and its looking like Erin, Evan and Nicole will be the three.
Move over Kardashians! There’s a new trashier family in town! Giving the Kardashians a run for their money are the Neiers sisters, the new stars of E! reality show – Pretty Wild.
While Kim Kardashian had to make a sex tape to get a reality show for her family. Alexis Neiers, 19, went a different route. Alexis, pictured on the far left, instead became part of a burglary ring now known as Hollywood Burglar Bunch. The burglar bunch stole clothes, jewelry and cash from the homes of celebrities such like Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, and Audrina Patridge.
And while Pretty Wild seems to be doing well in ratings on the E! network, Alexis will be forced to take a break from the show. Despite her numerous pleas of innocence, TMZ is reporting the reality star pleaded guilty yesterday to robbing Orlando Bloom’s home and taking nearly $600,000 worth of items from Bloom.
Alexis was sentenced to 180 days in jail and also placed on three years felony probation. She has up to June 24 to surrender. Alexis is the first of the Burglar Bunch to receive her sentence. It is also said she had a very limited role compared to her peers involved in the crimes.
Starring alongside Alexis on Pretty Wild is her sister Gabby Neiers, 15, their family friend, Tess Taylor (real name Tess Adler), 20, and their pimp mother, former Playboy Playmate model Andrea Arlington, who gives all three girls Adderall every morning for their alleged ADD. Her father, Mikel Neiers, is a former director of photography for “Friends.”
And if you think Alexis is the only “star” of her family, you are mistaken. Tess,20, has posed nude for Playboy magazine, and recently had photos of her topless and doing drugs posted on TheDirty website. One of those photos is below.
