Above is a photo of Playboy Playmate and E! reality star Kendra Wilkinson, who has been paired up with Louisvan Amstel. According to numerous reports, Kendra, 25, is the favorite to win the show.
Meanwhile, 60-year-old actress Kirstie Alley is hoping to use the show as a weight loss vehicle. “I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,” the former Jenny Craig spokesperson told US Magazine this week. “And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work. It’s exciting.”
That should no problem for Kirstie, who is paired with hotness/tough hard-ass teacher Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars will officially kick off on March 21.

“She was very upset,” Lisa told E! News adding that she spoke to Camille on Wednesday. “It’s public, it’s humiliating, and she’s very vulnerable. It’s very upsetting.” Lisa goes on to state that Camille “will always have a love there” for Kelsey, but that her friend is “definitely not” dating anyone new.
So should we expect Camille to return for a second season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? (The most recent report has her quitting the show) Lisa is uncertain. “I can’t say definitely, because it’s been tricky the past few weeks with a lot of feelings running high with what went down with Camille and her divorce,” explained Lisa. “My perception is that it worked so if it’s not broken why fix it? We would like it to stay the same but we’re still working it out.”
In other BH news, it seems Kyle Richards is now certain she wants to have more kids. “I would love to have 10 kids! But obviously I can’t, so I would love to have one more. We’ll see if it’s in the cards. If God’s going to grant my wish,” she revealed to RadarOnline
“Last night my husband did say to me ‘we need one more.’ So you never know,” added Kyle. “Some days I think you know I can handle this… life gets overwhelming but women, we’re multi-taskers. I think I can handle it.”
And finally, just weeks after revealing uncertainty about returning for a second season, it seemsTaylor Armstrong is more open to the idea now via a new interview with RadarOnline.
Taylor reveals there’s still more in store for the show: “I do think there are stories that are left to be told and the relationships are changing, some of our friendships are deepening and we’re getting to know each other better.” She adds, “Things are changing, our kids are getting older, our relationships are changing, our friendships, our marriages, our work lives, the changes that occur in life.”
UPDATE – The story was all set to be published, that is until a new report by E! news came out moments ago. According to the story, Camille is still planning to return to the show. So for the time being, we will stop with the Camille is/isn’t returning stories until an official announcement from either Camille or Bravo. The E! story also adds that Camille is “dating again and getting on with her life,” a contradiction to what Lisa stated above.

According to Kim Kardashian, the world can thank her BFF Ciarafor unleashing her singing abilities on us and inadvertently driving up the stock of ear plugs.
Days after releasing her first music single “Jam,” which has been panned with extremely bad reviews by the way (more on this later), Kim dishes on how the song came about on Sunday’s all-new episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. And get this, Kim, 30, had to be talked into recording the song by her pal, Ciara.
“I’m so shy,” states Kim when Ciara informs her that record producer The-Dream is anxious to work with her. “I’d be so nervous to get into a studio and sing in front of other people, especially The-Dream.” Ultimately, Kim decides to go ahead with recording the song.
Meanwhile, days after the debut of Kim’s song, she has become the laughing stock of the world music industry as there seems to be a collective agreement that Kim’s voice and music, well how do we put this delicately, kind of sucks. Below are some of the not so rave reviews for Kimmy’s song –
Popdust – “The heavily flanged Kardashian sounds barely engaged with her own song.”
Crushable – The single is “laughably bad and nearly unlistenable.”
Neon Limelight – “What really kills the song are the horrid vocals. Kim coos through the song lifelessly singing about taking shots and dancing the night away at her favorite spot. Is this club filled with zombies? They’re the only creatures she’s courting with that monotonous tone.”
Yahoo Music Blog – “So…is it any good? In a word, no. In two words, HECK no. More like “Turn It Down,” I say. It basically makes Paris Hilton’s “Stars Are Blind” warbling like something by Janis Joplin, and could probably even make Heidi Montag cringe (if Heidi was actually facially capable of cringing, that is).”
For those who want to take another gander at the song, it is below, but please don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The new episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York airs Sunday at 10 p.m. (EST) on E! Kim’s music video will also debut that night on the network.

E! reality star Holly Madison is now firing back at her body critics while also gracing the latest cover of Life & Style magazine!
“I’m proud of my body,” declares the former Playboy Playmate, who was told to lose some weight a few months ago for her Las Vegas burlesque Peepshow. Holly has also received criticism from costar and fellow Playmate Jayde Nicole. “She needs to lose 10 pounds of fat,” Jayde told Life & Style last month. “If she lost 10 pounds and toned up a little bit, she’d be back in the shape she used to be.”
While Holly, star of Holly’s World, admits she has gained weight since moving to Las Vegas, she makes it clear she is not about to risk her health to meet other peoples’ standards.
“Once I realized that other people were noticing that I’d packed on a few, I was embarrassed to go onstage,” says the 32-year-old. “I like food too much to go on some crazy diet,” she says. “French fries are my favorite downfall.”
“I’d rather be overweight and curvy than super thin with no curves,” adds Holly. “I’m proud of my body.”
And despite having a figure most women would envy, Holly admits that her small frame doesn’t exempt her from what haunts millions of women: cellulite. “I have cellulite — and had it even when I was at my absolute thinnest,” she tells Life & Style. “I’m never not going to have cellulite. People need to just accept that it’s there and maybe dress accordingly or use body makeup to cope with it.”
Holly adds that while she now exercises by doing Pilates classes and 20-minute runs, she does not want to lose her curves. “I’ve always had a butt, and I want to keep it — cellulite and all. I’m not perfect, but I love my curves.”
A bigger sized image of Holly’s unretouched photo is below. The new issue of Life & Style offers more exclusive unretouched photos and the full interview with Holly.

Just like that, we are now one step closer to finding the ultimate American Idol for season 10. Last night, the show narrowed down the 24 finalists to the top 13. The full list – Jacob Lusk, Haley Reinhart, Thia Megia, (back row) Lauren Alaina, Stefano Langone, Naima Adedapo, Karen Rodriguez, Ashthon Jones, James Durbin, Scotty McCreery, Pia Toscano, (front) Paul McDonald and Casey Abrams.
The show began last night with Ryan Seacrestintroducing the Top 24 while also announcing that after the cuts are made, the judges will ask some of the eliminated contestants to sing for a wild-card spot. “It’s going to be a tough night for us,” said judge Jennifer Lopez.
Entertainment Tonight also reports that the judges, who were only supposed to pick 2 wildcards, simply couldn’t narrow it down. “They didn’t make a final decision to make it 13 until the end,” said Ryan.
“We saw so many talented kids we didn’t know what we were going to quite do,” Randy Jackson explained. “I’m still thinking about it,” said Jlo. “I’m like, ‘Did we do the right thing? Did we put the right people in?'”
Meanwhile, Jlo, who would have never made it to the Hollywood round had she tried out for the show, is making certain to use the show to restart her stale music career. Her new music video, “On The Floor”, premiered last night while the judges were mulling over the wild card performances. That video is below –

“Every year I’m like there’s not going to be any drama and then of course there is tons of drama. First episode, me and Tamara are already boxing each other so you can’t put five flamboyant women in a room, strong confident women, and not expect some drama and catfights,” said Gretchen to the HollywoodLife.
Gretchen also mentions that she and boyfriendSlade Smiley will be working through their own set of problems throughout the season. When asked if marriage is still on the table for the two, she coyly responded, “Yes, and you’re going to have to watch and see what happens!” They two are rumored to be engaged.
Gretchen goes on to sing the praises of the two new housewives on the show, Peggy Tanous and Fernanda Rocha. “I love Peggy this season, she seems like a really cool, down to earth girl. She seems to fit in with the group well and Fernanda, the Brazilian lesbian as I like to call her, she spices it up a little, she stirs the pot a little, but she’s really fun,” revealed Gretchen.
Meanwhile, Peggy appeared on E! News yesterday during which she gave the show a tour of her house. And yes, it was the same exact house that the she and her hubby recently defaulted on.
Peggy revealed during the interview that she knew Alexis Bellino before doing the show and that Alexis wasn’t happy about her decision to join the cast. The reason? Peggy stated that Alexis told her the show “was her own thing.” Safe to say there will be some friction between Alexis and Peggy on the show this season.
The entire cast also appeared on the Today Show today for an interview, during which Alexis admitted she did not want Peggy on the show, however citing a different reason than what Peggy stated. According to Alexis, she and Peggy have been friends for 4 years, and she simply didn’t want Peggy to do the show for Peggy’s own good and to protect their friendship. Alexis added that the show tends to cause friction between people. A photo of the entire cast from their Today Show interview below.

No, hell has not frozen over, and yes, that is Snookiaka Nicole Polizzi gracing the latest cover of Rolling Stone magazine solo.
“Snooki’s Wild Ride – America’s #1 Party Girl” reads the cover of Rolling Stone under a photo of the Jersey Shore star on a rocket, and no, the rocket doesn’t take her out of space or to an alternate planet to never be heard from again.
The mag showcases the 23-year-old New York native’s fame ride from being a former veterinary assistant into a reality TV superstar with a best-selling book, a $20,000 personal appearance fee, a line of jewelry and a spin-off TV show in the works. And while the fourth season of the mega hit show is scheduled to film in Italy during Spring, Snooki reveals she is well aware her MTV days are numbered, and has devised a plan to extend her 15 minutes of fame.
Snooki On Plans After Jersey Shore – “When Jersey Shore ends I’m going to do more spinoffs,” Snooki tells the mag. “If MTV doesn’t want them, another network will be, like, ‘What does Snooki do now?’ or ‘Snooki’s getting married!’ What I’d like is to turn out like JessicaSimpson, with her whole brand. She makes millions. I’m trying to build an empire, because after this I can’t get a normal job. I mean, how do I go and sit behind a desk?”
Snooki On Being Tired of How She’s Perceived – “If I do something stupid, which is pretty much the whole time, I hate it. Obviously, they’re only going to put the good stuff in, and the good stuff is us drunk, so all I’m seeing is me drunk and falling down,” she explains. “That’s how I am when I party. But some of the stuff I do is, like, ‘Really, Nicole?’ I look like a freakin’ alcoholic. I’m like, ‘You’re sweating, your makeup is running, you look gross.’ I just look like sh*t.”
Snooki On Jersey Shore Being Like A Prison – “It messes with your head. That’s why we go crazy. That’s why we fight with each other. That’s why we drink,” Snooki tells Rolling Stone. “We’re living in a house for two months with that sh*t. We can’t have cellphones, TV, radio or the Internet. If the president died, we’d have no idea. There’s no normalcy. It’s just like prison, with cameras.”
Below are some more images from Snooki’s Rolling Stone article, including a childhood photo and photos of Snooki as a cheerleader in High School.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore. On the 10th episode this season, Sammi’s return to the house leaves Ronnie at a loss for words. Meanwhile, Snooki’s feelings for Vinny grow, and Mike hooks up with a girl who seems to have a strange odor.

Yes, sources connected to the show confirm to TMZ that the Salahis, stars of the Real Housewives of DC, alongside some others have signed on for Celebrity Rehab season 5.
Other “celebs” joining the Salahis? Michael Lohan – daddy to troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, Bai Ling – Z list actress, Jeremy Jackson – former Baywatch actor, and Dwight “Doc” Gooden – former pitcher for the NY Mets.
A new report by TMZ also reveals that Lindsay Lohan is livid that her embarrassment of a father has signed up to do the show.
Lindsay was reportedly “shocked and upset” to hear the news, telling friends she’s worried he’ll embarrass the family. Sources add that Lindsay is most upset that her dad, Michael, began taping the show without giving her a heads up. She is also adamant she will NEVER make an appearance on the show.
As for the Salahis, no word yet on their supposed addiction. Michaele did reveal a while back that she had multiple sclerosis, so feel free to try to determine which drug or alcohol goes best with the BS MS.

UPDATE: VH1 has confirmed the cast today and Tareq will not be a part of the show though Michaele will be. Below is part of the official press release –
“This season will follow Michael Lohan (celebrity dad), Michaele Salahi (The Real Housewives of DC), Amy Fisher (“Long Island Lolita”), Bai Ling (The Crow) and Jeremy Jackson (Baywatch) on their quest for sobriety. Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew is slated to premiere early summer on VH1.”
While Michaele is the one actually doing the rehab, it is safe to assume Tareq will crash the show at some point during the season to help support his wife‘s fame addiction.
