Grammy award-winning singer, Macy Gray and partner Jonathan Roberts failed to make it to Week 2 of Dancing With The Stars. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Macy talks about what she takes away from her experience and who she thinks is going to win Season 9’s mirror-ball trophy.
Some say you weren’t that into the show in the first place. Have you gotten over the disappointment of being the first female off the show?
Not yet. I think there are different parts to disappointment, and I have a few more to get over, but then I’ll be okay. I was really, extremely disappointed, but at the same time, I think I’m going to be okay.
Was it harder than you expected?
No, because I thought we did good! I honestly don’t think we deserved the score that we got, and I thought we did really good. We were really pressed on time, but that’s not an excuse because we were ready, and I was actually really excited about coming back and doing better the next week. But it wasn’t meant to happen.
You mentioned that you did the show for your mom. Is she a big fan of the show?
I didn’t actually do it for her, but she’s the one that talked me into it. She always tells me to be adventurous and to try new things and grow and have fun. She just thought it would be good for me on a spiritual and mental [level], and would be another opportunity for a life lesson, and she was right. I learned a lot and I lost a ton of weight. I even learned a little bit about ballroom dancing.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’sKandi Burruss proves to us that miracles can happen as she turned fellow castmate, Kim Zolciak’s song into a dance hit. The Grammy award-winning songwriter who has written hit songs for popular acts such as TLC and Nsync helped write and produce Kim’s new hit – “Tardy For The Party.”
Despite earlier reports that came out this week claiming Kim’s song had been yanked off Itunes due to her non payment to producer Don Vitto, Kim has come out denying the entire story, and clarifying her song is still available on Itunes. A quick check on Itunes proves the song is still indeed available, leading us to believe the entire “lawsuit” saga was nothing but a big publicity stunt.
So the question of the moment is -
Tell Us: You be the judge – Is “Tardy for the party” a hit or miss? What are your thoughts on the past episode of the Atlanta Housewives? Is Nene’s Ego Out of Control?
The former star of The Girls Next Doors will begin filming her own reality series, Planet Holly, chronicling her life in Las Vegas, on October 12.
Holly, 29, who split from Playboy mogul, Hugh Hefner, 83, last year and appeared on five seasons of E!’s Girls Next Door, says her new series will be “good-natured” and “inspiring.”
“It will be a guilty pleasure with a lot of eye candy,” says Holly. “There will be elements of GND in my show because there is such a fan following for it. It’s all good-natured and not mean like other reality shows. I’m really excited about the new series because I am also getting a legitimate co-producer credit for all the work I do behind the camera. It’s not a vanity credit. I’m super excited to learn from the best and take on new responsibilities.”
Shea Johnson of the Soap network’s Southern Belles Louisville is set to make an appearance on the Dr. Phil show next Friday. The episode titled “Run to the Altar” is slated to air on October 2nd.
The southern belle will be dishing on her heartbreak, which some of you might remember involved her then fiance, Jeff Stovall, cheating on her with the not so honorable Louisville Judge, Katie King. Shea unfortunately found out about Jeff’s infidelities right after the passing of her mother.

Jon Gosselin’s22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, recently underwent plastic surgery to enhance her breasts on Sept. 16 according to the Star magazine. Since Jon has a reputation for gallivanting, Hailey is reportedly hoping the boob job will help curb his wandering eye.
“Hailey’s been very self-conscious about her breasts,” a friend reveals to Star. “She didn’t like the way they looked.”
Hailey was caught on camera leaving Natural Images Plastic Surgery in Nyack, N.Y., with her mother, Lauren, and father, Dr. Lawrence Glassman. According to a Star reporter, she looked disoriented and barely walking. Once she has recovered, she intends to get more work done for her beau.
According to the friend, Hailey also intends to fix her teeth and hair. “She says she wants whiter, bigger teeth so she can have a gorgeous Hollywood smile. She wants [her hair] long, straight and with a wave to look her sexiest for Jon.”
No word yet on whether or not Jon splurged for Hailey’s surgery. Jon has however been reported in the past has taking Hailey out on shopping sprees and lavishing thousands of dollars on her in designer stores.

Justin Guarini, runner-up to Kelly Clarkson in the first season of American Idol, is getting married this weekend.
The 30-year-old singer will tie the knot with fiancee, Reina Capodici this Saturday on a private estate along the Delaware River near both their families’ homes in Pennsylvania, Usmagazine.com has learned.
Though Justin and Reina dated for a few years, they’ve known each other since they were teens. Justin will become a stepfather to Reina’s 4-year-old daughter Lola, from a previous relationship.
A female minister from the Universal Church will preside over the ceremony and the couple intend to recite vows they’ve written themselves.
Last weekend, Justin covered the Emmy Awards for the TV Guide Channel. He also plans to return to the studio to record his third CD.
The photo on the right is of Big Poppa aka Lee Najjarand his wife, who is ironically also named Kim, and strangely enough looks a lot like Kim Zolciak. Lee is an extremely wealthy real estate developer in Atlanta.
This news is interesting considering the fact that Kim confirmed she and Big Poppa were still together just a week ago during her appearance of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens.” She even went as far as to reveal that she and Big Poppa had been intimate a week earlier.
The habitual liar Atlanta housewife wrote on her twitter page — “There is NO more Big Poppa and Kim FYI. The show was filmed months ago things have changed..So happy.” She has however spent the past few months sporting an “engagement” ring she claimed was a gift from Big Poppa. Not exactly sure how one can be engaged to a still married man, but evidently anything goes in Kim’s world.
Below is a photo of Kim and Big Poppa taken while the duo vacationed –
The show’s producer, Mike Fleiss, had previously confirmed the next Bachelor would be one of the contestants from Jillian Harris‘s recent Bachelorette season, even narrowing the choices down to three men. “When the new season of The Bachelor premieres, look for Reid, Kiptyn or Jake to be handing out the red roses,” said Fleiss.
There are however rumblings that the new Bachelor could be a new contestant all together. Our previous polls showed a preference for Reid as the next Bachelor.
The new season of “The Bachelor” will premiere in early 2010; with all signs pointing to Monday, Jan. 4, though the actual premier date has yet to be confirmed.
