Casey Abrams, the American Idol finalist who was hospitalized last Wednesday will get to stay on the show reports TMZ.
Casey, who was hospitalized after complaining of severe stomach pains was apparently in danger of being sent home due to his illness. The reason? He was very close to missing Friday’s taping of the top 12 males — something all contestants are required to participate in to remain on the show.
Good news came for Casey as he was able to make the Friday tapings after receiving a blood transfusion at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He is not expected to return to the hospital.
And above is the official photo of the top 24 contestants: Top row (L-R) Kendra Chantelle, Jovani Barreto, Lauren Turner, Casey Abrams, Tatynisa Wilson, James Durbin, Karen Rodriguez, Jacob Lusk, Lauren Alaina, Thia Megia, Scott McCreery, Brett Loewenstern, Pia Toscano and Jordan Dorsey. Bottom row (L-R): Rachel Zevita, Stefano Langone, Paul McDonald, Julie Zorrilla, Tim Halperin, Haley Reinhart, Clint Jun Gamboa, Robbie Rosen, Naima Adedapo and Ashthon Jones.
The next episode of American Idol airs Tuesday at 8/7c on FOX.

In other news, today is the Oscars and yes Camille Grammer, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, will be helping to co-host the pre-show for the CNN network.
This is an open post, so please feel free to comment about Kim, Camille, the Oscars or whatever is on your mind!
The ceremony took place Friday afternoon at the Longacre Theater in New York City, where Kelsey recently starred in the Tony-winning revival of the musical La Cage aux Folles.
“Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh were married today at a private ceremony for family and friends,” his rep said in a statement yesterday. The guests at the wedding included Kelsey’s grown daughter, actress Spencer Grammer, who read a poem, Kayte’s brother, who sang a song, and Kelsey’s 5-year-old son Jude (son with Camille). Kelsey and Camille’s daughter Mason, 8, reportedly didn’t attend the bash due to a talent show.
Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests headed to the reception at the Plaza Hotel where they dined on a four-course dinner menu which accommodated the vegetarian bride and also included king oyster mushroom carpaccio, wild mushroom risotto, grilled filet mignon with blue potato gratin and bittersweet chocolate tart. The price? A mere $400 a plate. Wedding photos of Kelsey and Kate below.
It’s “bittersweet,” said Camille. “Kelsey and I spent 14 years together and built a great life for ourselves. We have two children, and they mean the world to me.”
“I do wish him well and I’ll miss him,” Camille added. “We spent many great years together and we’ve been through a lot. But at the end of the day, he’s made his decision and I’ll be fine. I’ve got a great support group, real and true friends and I’m moving forward with my life. I was sad and wanted to make things work but I’m completely fine now. I’m moving on.”
For starters, Sweetie was the so called “reason” for the big tour bus fight that ensued this season involving former BFFs Kim and Nene Leakes. Nene made a big stink on the bus, claiming she had a problem with the way Kim treated Sweetie, only to turn around and call Sweetie a slave to her face – more than once.
Since the airing of that episode, Sweetie continues to feel the brunt of Nene’s words and actions as Atlanta radio host Rickey Smiley launched a “Free Sweetie” campaign on Feb. 16 after Nene called his morning show.
“They’re doing it for Black History Month, and it offends me,” Sweetie tells Life & Style. “They have pastors calling into the radio station and praying for me. They’ve taken it too far. NeNe’s jealous that she’s not as close to Kim as I am. I’ve known Kim for 11 years, since I was a kid. Kim’s a great friend to me. NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it.”
Kim also spoke to the mag about the Sweetie situation. “I never want to speak to NeNe again. My assistant Sweetie is so upset about the whole thing, she’s beside herself,” Kim tells Life & Style. “NeNe has problems.”
In other Kim news, we now have more of her interview with Life & Style magazine, in which she talks about her unborn baby and “amazing” sex life with 25-year-old dummy baby’s daddy to be Kroy Biermann.
“The baby’s fine — no complications or problems, thank God. I was pretty nauseous in the first trimester,” Kim tells the mag. “Now I drink Perrier all day — it’s the best ever and keeps me from the nausea. But, I am exhausted. We just went to Anguilla for 10 days, and I slept my butt off!”
And how much weight has Kim gained? “I don’t step on the scale, but I’d say I’ve gained about 20 pounds. I gained 30 with my first and 28 with my second.”
When it comes to how pregnancy has affected her sex life, Kim dishes to Life & Style: “It’s amazing! We’re in a really good place. Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful. He’s really cute about it, and it definitely makes it a lot easier on me.” Good to know Kim. Good to know.

So is it time for Bravo to start panicking? Maybe, maybe not. Bravo did air a sneak peek of the premiere episode on Sunday night so perhaps the viewers who tuned in on Sunday failed to show up on Tuesday. But then again, it might just have been the bad word of mouth. As we previously reported, the show has been panned with negative reviews from both viewers and critics.
In general, premiere episodes tend to be low in ratings as some viewers wait for the drama to build up. Example – the October 2010 premiere of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brought in 1.5 million viewers, but the viewership steadily grew as the show went on to average well over 2 million viewers for its first season.
And oh yeah, above is a photo of Marysol Patton and her 76-year-old mother Elsa Patton. The photo was taken this week during the RHMIA premiere party.
In other news, the ‘Real Housewives of Late Night‘ made their second season return last night on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show.

Perhaps Yvonne is Nene Leakes?
Watch the video below to find out what Renee, Dale, Denise, Lydia, and Yvonne been up to!

Khloe Kardashian graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine under the heading “Our Baby Struggle.” After tying the knot a year and a half ago in September 2009, Khloe made it very clear that she and hubby Lamar Odom wanted a baby right away.
In fact, theKeeping Up With The Kardashians star has revealed in multiple interviews that she and Lamar are not doing anything to prevent a baby from happening. Well, it’s now over a year and a half, and many are wondering where is the baby? As Khloe is yet to be pregnant.
UsWeekly caught up with Khloe during the recent NBA All Star weekend during which they asked her the same invasive question.
“It takes time, I guess, I don’t know,” replied Khloe, 26, adding that her conception issues are confounding. “I don’t know what the problem is,” she added. Perhaps there is no problem and Khloe’s previous statements about trying for a baby were just to keep her in the headlines and fuel pregnancy rumors but hey, what do we know?
Moving right along to Kim Kardashian, who is making headlines for an Old Navy commercial she’s not starring in. It seems the crafty folks at Old Navy are capitalizing off Kimmy’s fame as their latest commercial has people doing double takes, featuring Kim’s doppelganger in the form of real life singer Melissa Molinaro.
While Kim and her reps have yet to comment on the ad, E! News reported yesterday that Kimmy is not happy with the commercial. Lawyers however state a lawsuit might be difficult to win since neither Kim’s actual likeness or name was used in the commercial. Photos from the ad below plus the actual video commercial.

A day after her nude photos mysteriously “leaked” online (those photos are below), Amber Portwood is now speaking out about her latest scandal.
RadarOnline published the nude photos of Amber yesterday stating the Teen Mom star posed for the photos a few weeks ago while a friend took the pictures, though most of the photos appear to have been taken by Amber herself on a cell phone.
“Amber fancies herself an old-fashioned pin-up girl,” said an insider to Radar. “She posed the way she thought a pin-up would.”
In the photos posted below, the 20-year-old strategically posed at angles that didn’t expose her most private parts, perhaps attempting to leave something for the imagination.
Most notable in the photos is Amber’s tattoo of her daughter Leah on her stomach. Apparently tattooing the face of your baby on your POT, you know, pull-out-target, is always an excellent idea.
Amber responded to the photos via a statement stating she is trying to remain positive in light of the pics. “I’m devastated that these pictures were stolen from my phone and sold by someone I trusted,” Amber tells MTV in a statement. “It makes me sad that anyone would do this, and I’m horrified that something so private is being shared publicly.”
She added, “It’s been a difficult year, and I just want to focus on what’s important in my life — my daughter.”
