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.

Brad eventually kissed Emily after she heavily persuaded him to. In his latest blog for PEOPLE magazine, Brad attempts to explain his side -
“One last thing … I want to explain why I didn’t kiss Emily while sitting on her couch. It’s no secret that I’m brand new to a lot of this. I’ve never dated a woman with a daughter before so I don’t know proper etiquette in that situation. All I know is this, I wanted to kiss Emily every second I was around her, but my very first concern was showing her daughter respect (as well as Emily). I realize it makes me look like a weird and awkward guy around Emily, but that’s anything but the case. Again, my first concern was her daughter.”
According to the rumor mill, talk show host Wendy Williams, 46, and Kendra Wilkinson, 26, are a done deal. While ABC has reportedly been in serious talks with Kristie Alley, 60, and trying to woo NFL Player Brett Favre, 41. Christine O’Donnell, popular tea party candidate, also admitted ABC has invited her to do the show. No word yet on whether Christine accepted. Other rumored contestants include Lorenzo Lamas and Vince Neil.
The 12th season of DWTS will officially kick off on March 21.

UPDATE #2: TMZ is reporting the following six contestants are confirmed for DWTS’ new season – Chris Jericho, Kirstie Alley, Lil’ Romeo, Kendra Wilkinson, Wendy Williams, and Disney star Chelsea Kane.
It seems Kendra Wilkinson, star of the E! network’s Kendra, is about to become a sex tape pioneer, as a new report reveals she will be the first “celebrity” to release a lesbian sex tape.
Yes, less than a year after her first hetero sex tape was released, which was an instant success by the way, RadarOnline is reporting a girl-on-girl sequel is on its way to being sold publicly.
According to Radar, the lesbian sex tape was shot around the same time as her first sex tape with an ex-boyfriend. “Kendra has sex in the video with Taryn Ryan,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “They were friends and were hanging out together, with their boyfriends.”
And what can we expect from the tape? “It’s a long tape, about 45 minutes. And there is nothing left to the imagination,” states the source, adding that the tape was shot by Justin Frye, Kendra’s ex boyfriend and partner in the first sex tape.
Vivid, which released the first tape, is now working out the details for the release of the new tape. As for more details of the newer sex tape, “Kendra and Taryn started fooling around and then Kendra wanted the light turned off,” the source revealed. “But the camera that was recording them had night vision, so it looks like the Paris Hilton porn tape. Everything is completely clear.”
The “explicit” tape will show Kendra and Taryn “laughing at first, and the guys are encouraging them to kiss each other. They started kissing while giggling and then things got hotter.”
And while Kendra has publicly assailed the release of the first sex tape, RadarOnline adds that she secretly signed off on the deal and received a hefty payday. Plus Radar also broke the story last year that Kendra had secretly planned to sell the sex tapes while she was living in the Playboy mansion. In fact, she even formed a company to sell the sex tapes though the deal never went through.
As for the first sex tape, Kendra got a large up-front fee and a percentage of sales from Vivid. The same deal is expected on the newest sex tape.

It’s that time of the year again folks! With Dancing With The Stars officially set to announce its season 12 cast in about a month, rumors of the “stars” who will be participating are starting to swirl.
The most notable name so far is none other than E! reality star and former Playmate Kendra Wilkinson. According to E! Online, DWTS has approached Kendra to appear on the show’s upcoming season and get this, Kendra is actually interested!
Sources tell E! that Kendra is now in talks with the show’s producers and even recently sat down for a meeting with the network execs. “Her personality, combined with her ability to dance, is appealing,” the source says.
This news is surprising as Kendra publicly stated a year ago that unlike Kate Gosselin, she would not do DWTS because of her then new born baby. Though Kendra’s participation in the show would make sense as her former Girls Next Door costar Holly Madison did it 2 years ago.
In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting the show’s producers are interested in signing actor Lorenzo Lamas and former Baywatch actress Donna D’Errico.
According to TMZ, DWTS is currently locked in negotiations with both stars who are reported to have “serious interest” in doing the show.

The magazine cover, which came out today, headlines ‘Divorce Drama!’ Adding that the 25-year-old Playmate and star of E! reality show Kendra has met up with divorce lawyers behind Hank’s back.
According to In Touch, Kendra and Hank have been fighting over everything, and are not looking forward to spending time together once football season is over. “One night she actually told him, ‘I’m done,” reveals a source close to the couple adding that “the meeting [with a divorce lawyer] took place in December.”
The mag adds that Kendra now wants to protect her assets and has began preparing a post-nuptial agreement with her attorney. Meaning Hank won’t see a dime from the reported millions of dollars she made from her sex tape in addition to an estimated 2010 earning of $2 million. “Kendra is making a lot of money these days, but Hank’s not earning as much as he did when they got married. She’s just looking out for her own interests,” a friend of Kendra’s explains.
Kendra reportedly sees herself as the breadwinner in her marriage as Hank’s one year contract with the Vikings only netted him $800,000.
“Kendra misses being single,” adds the source. “When they got married, Hank made far more money than Kendra … now he makes a lot less than Kendra.”
Kendra and Hank’s marriage has been plagued with rumors of marital problems for the past few months now. There seems to be some smoke though the verdict is still out on an actual fire.

“We were up in the bedroom,” Crystal tells PEOPLE, “and my favorite movie is The Little Mermaid, so he had the ring in a Little Mermaid box, and that was so special. I opened it and the first thing he said to me was, ‘I hope it fits!’ “
Crystal “is so totally devoted,” Hugh adds. “Her priorities are pretty much our relationship, No. 1 and No. 2 and 3, and you don’t always find that. Despite the age disparity, the truth of the matter is we have a great deal in common, we really complement one another, we have a wonderful time together, and I love her.”
So does the couple plan on having children? “I told my mom I never wanted children. I wanted animals instead, and there are tons of them here,” said Crystal. “If it happens, it happens, but that is not part of the plan,” added Hugh.
PEOPLE also adds that two of Hugh’s former girlfriends and Girls Next Door stars have sent their congrats to him. Kendra Wilkinson tweeted her congratulations to Hugh and Crystal while Bridget Marquartsent ‘I Do’ cupcakes to the couple.
On the other hand, Holly Madison, Hugh’s main squeeze for 7 years, has yet to congratulate the couple or publicly speak out on the engagement. In fact Holly declined to comment on the news during a recent interview over the weekend.
And while Crystal tells PEOPLE that Holly plans to say “hi” during her upcoming visit to the Playboy mansion on Wednesday (she is going there to film a segment for her E! reality show Holly’s World), the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Holly, 31, is “very upset” about the engagement news.
As reported, Holly ended her relationship with Hugh after 7 years of dating because Hugh told her he never wanted to get married or have children again. “She can’t believe Crystal was able to get Hef to agree to something she had tried for so long,” said a source to the Sun-Times.
Sources also tell the newspaper that it is unlikely Hugh will actually walk down the aisle with Crystal, adding that this will likely be a long-term Hollywood engagement. And if Hugh does indeed end up marrying Crystal, she can expect a very tight prenup. “That prenup will be tighter than Cher’s most recent facelift!” said a source close to Hugh. Ouch.
As for the engagement ring, Crystal tweeted a picture of it last week. That picture is below. UsWeekly estimates the ring is a “3 1/2 carat brilliant-cut diamond set in platinum with micro pave diamonds the band” and is worth an estimated $90,000.
