Former Bachelor star Melissa Rycroft revealed to UsWeekly that she has the swine flu.
“I am indeed recovering from a bout of the H1N1 flu virus,” Melissa, 26, tells Usmagazine. “Like most people who become infected, I thought I had a mild case of the common flu, but when my symptoms exacerbated, I immediately went to the hospital where I was diagnosed with H1N1 and given the proper medications to cure the infection.”
Melissa who also appeared on last season’s Dancing With The Stars wants people to know “how easy it is to battle this flu when you take the proper steps such as seeking the care of a doctor.” She continues, “I’m a clear case that by paying diligent attention to your health, it’s easy to overcome this illness and be healthy again.”
Other notable stars include Sinbad, Darryl Strawberry, and Holly Robinson-Peete. The most shocking cast member would have to be former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevic. It seems committing a crime increases one’s celeb status.
The third season of the Celebrity Apprentice is expected to premiere in January.
This may come as relief to some viewers who seem to have had enough of the Gosselin drama. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality show will officially end in November, reportsRadarOnline.
Since JonandKate Gosselin’s divorce has turned into a soap opera and they both seem to love the spotlight, we can bet you haven’t seen the end of them. Although TLC hasn’t made any official announcements, RadarOnline was able to confirm the show’s termination next month.
Jonhas denied the network the rights to film the children and TLC will not challenge that. As of now, the newly titled show — Kate Plus 8 is also done for, that is unless Jon changes his mind.
“TLC has no plans to film unless the situation is resolved,” said the source.
There’s something sentimental about seeing the old picture above of the Gosselin family. Fame is an awful drug. Perhaps getting off national television will be best for the family.

“I hope he finds somebody and gets married because that show is full of s–t,” he told Usmagazine at the Fox Reality Channel’s Reality Awards in L.A. “One marriage in 18 seasons? I mean, come on!”
According to Wes, it’s “absolutely impossible to find love” on the ABC show.
“Call me old fashioned and say that my moral compass is off, but is it OK for one woman to make out with 30 guys and in eight weeks dwindle it down to someone she is going to spend the rest of her life with?” he said.
That’s not all, Wes goes on to claim there are rumors that Ryan and Trista were a couple prior to the show. “I heard they were already a couple before the show started. That’s what I heard from the past contestants when I was off the show,” said Wes. Trista & Ryan are the only couple to ever get married during the 18 seasons of the show.
Wes is also upset on how he was portrayed on the show. “I saw one episode, and it was the very first one, and I was so upset that I didn’t watch any other episodes,” he said. “I mean, look at me! I’m sleeved out with tattoos! I’ve got the spiky hair!”
Wes reveals that his 17 year old sister signed him up for the show and he had no interest being a part of the show in the first place. How old is this guy again?
What about the future of BacheloretteJillian Harris and Ed Swiderski? “I love Jillian and I talk to her all the time on Facebook still,” Wes said. “If she gets married and has lots of babies and lives the American Dream, great. But honestly, I don’t think that is going to happen.”
Baker aka Jazmin Waterz is the latest Chance girl to be eliminated from VH1′s Real Chance of Love 2. In a new interview with VH1, Baker talks about her time on the show, her dislike for Blonde Baller, and why she’s proud to be a stripper.
Excerpts from her new interview are below -
How was your time on the show?
It was actually a learning experience. It was fun to be part of a social experiment, which is how I now see it. I learned a lot about myself and reality TV.
What did you learn about yourself?
Just watching myself on TV, I shoulda started punching girls in their face instead of playing the role of I-want-to-get-as-much-time-on-TV-as-possible. I didn’t want to go home for punching a girl in her mouth. They didn’t say any of that stuff to my face, so watching them makes me want to punch them in their face. So I’m just gonna start punching them.
How affected by this show were you emotionally? You cried when you were eliminated.
(Laughs) When I got eliminated, I was numb. I would have rather gotten kicked off at the beginning, when it was actually fun in the house. By that time, it was over it. I cried because I wasted my time. It just hit me in the head, like, I really liked him, I was there for him and he sent me home.
Even Blonde Baller said that you were there for Chance…
I give her props on that, but that’s it. I don’t want to talk about her.
A new report has sources close to the series revealing that Sheree might be getting the boot because she has become too boring and drama free. Really? Even more boring than Lisa Wu Hartwell?
According to the source, one of the housewives has to go to make room for new blood next season. Kandi Burruss was allegedly going to be the booted housewife until she surprised the producers by becoming the series favorite, which isn’t seating too well with former favorite Nene Leakes.
The source also claims Sheree is biting the hand that feeds her by refusing to stir up drama on the show this season because she wants to be taken seriously as a fashion designer. Umm didn’t Sheree stir up some major wig yanking drama early on?
Not sure how accurate this story is. I suspect Lisa will be the housewife to go if they decide to get rid of someone. She’s been very boring to watch this season, and has been the most drama free which is a major no-no for being a Bravo housewife.

Jake Pavelka is speaking out on being chosen to be the new Bachelor. The official announcement was made on Tuesday’s episode of Dancing With The Stars.
Jake reveals to UsMagazine that he is “honored” to be given a second chance at love as the latest Bachelor. Jake was dumped on the last season of The Bachelorette by Jillian Harris. “It’s such a unique opportunity,” Jake, 31, revealed after the DWTS show taping in Los Angeles Tuesday. “I still cannot believe this is happening. How did I get here?”
When asked about the drama from last season including the accusation that Wes Hayden had a girlfriend back home, Jake reveals he hopes that’s something he will not have to deal with. “I hope that’s something we don’t deal with this season,” he said. “I’m going to give everybody a clean slate going in, and I think over time [contestants] will weed themselves out. I’m hopeful.”
So who is Jake’s dream girl? “I’m going to look deep into the heart for character,” he said. “The four most important things to me are similar qualities — someone who is romantic, passionate, compassionate and protective … and will laugh at my jokes!”
