Who cares what size she is, she looks awesome!!Â Kirstie Alley lost 60 pounds last season on DWTS and has not only kept it off, but lost another 40 pounds!Â SheÂ has said the Â she is a size 2 which is questionable, but has finally admitted to being a US size 6!!Â Who cares, you look fabulous Kirstie!!
Wow, we heard she was slightly injured last week after being hit by an 84 year old womenÂ while jogging in LA, but Reese Witherspoon is sporting on big black eye and a cut on her forehead too!!Â Check out the pictures here!Â Â I'm glad she's okay!!
The X-Factor is gearing up for it's September 21st debut on Fox and they have just released their new publicity pictures.Â I have only one thing to say...Paula Abdul looks amazing!!Â I seriously can't wait for this show to start!!
Jennifer Aniston recieved her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday and had her knew boyfriend Justin Theroux with her.Â It looks like he cleaned up a bit by getting rid of his beard and looked handsome and clean shaven.Â He's sitting to her left in the white shirt and slim black tie. Â I vote for this look, what do you think?Â Congrats Jen!
The lovely Keri Bellacosa host of Good Day Austin on Fox 7 stopped by the Majic studios this morning for our "Fabulous Friday's" segment. Â We had a lot of fun and shared some great Father's Day gift ideas too! Â Check it out below!
It was finally time for Kendra Wilkinson and Louis Van Amstel to go home. Â This time I think she was a bit relieved saying she was ready to be a mom again! Â The Tango was tough for Kendra, check out the video below, Â The final 5 contestants will do two dances next week , one they will have to put together in Â just 30 minutes!
What an amazing night on American Idol, even if they left Bruce Springsteen out of the telecast. Â All 7 Idol hopefuls were fantastic, not a weak one in the bunch, but someone has to go home. Â I think it may be fan favorite Jacob Lusk who had a hard time hearing his track when it messed up , he kept on Â singing anyway!Â
My favorite performance this week was from James Durban who sang the Muse hit "Uprising" and was amazing!!
Kasey Abrams was also fabulous doing his rendition of Maroon 5'sÂ "Harder To Breathe".Â He even snuck in a kiss for J-Lo!
At this stage of the game on American Idol every vote counts. Â Tonight's results proved that! Â I also believe the order of the performances early on can make a difference. Â Tonight's results proved that too!! Â The amazingly talented Casey Abrams had the lowest number of votes and shockingly faced elimination. Â Clearly performing early I think a lot of voters forgot about him. Â I am so glad the judges used their one save of the season to keep Casey!! Â I have a feeling a bit of this was staged on the judges part , but Casey had no idea and his face and reaction are quite emotional!! Â Check out the video below if you missed it!Stevie Wonder sang his classic "Happy Birthday To Ya" to Steven Tyler in honor of his 63rd birthday!! Â Hey Steven you "don't look a day over fabulous " either! Â Check out Steven's fun birthday cake! Â Yummy!!
More fabulous stuff from last night's show!
It was Motown night on American Idol and one of the best show's ever!! Â Everyone tried to bring their A game and while some succeeded , so did not. Â Nobody gave a bad performance but as you know with American Idol some talent grows and some does not and it begins to show the further into the competition we get. My favorite performance belonged to Jacob Lusk doing a soulful rendition of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's "Your All I Need to Get By". Â Steven Tyler actually ran up on stage to give Jacob a hug, call ing him baby Luther after Luther Vandross! Â Ryan Seacrest Â then invited the whole front row to do the same. Â Who was your favorite? Â Check out Jacob's incredible performance below!American IdolÂ Top 11Â Performances:
Casey Abrams â I Heard It Through the Grapevine
Thia Megia â Heat Wave
Jacob Lusk â Youâre All I Need to Get By
Lauren Alaina â You Keep Me Hanging On
Stefano Langone â Hello
Haley Reinhart â Youâve Really Got a Hold On Me
There will be many tributes to the legendary star Elizabeth Taylor in the coming weeks after her death today at age 79.Â I love this one done by another legend who is no longer with us, Paul Newman.Â Â Take a few minutes to look at the video and I think you'll agree it sums up her incredible and wonderful life perfectly!Â
This week it's 'Motown Favs' and the Top 10 determined for the Big Summer tour!
Karen Rodriguez bid Idol adieu tonight after the judges opted to hang onto their one-time-only save for a much rainier day."I know it's about the votes, but I've done my best to represent for everybody, for my family, for everyone," she said.The 21-year-old from New York tried to play to her strengths, singing her bilingual version of "Hero," but all it did was rehighlight her voice's limitations. No 11th-hour pardon for her tonight."This is not unanimous. I must say, we talked it over quite a bit, but the judges are not going to use the save tonight," Randy Jackson broke the news. Â By the look on her face it seemed like Jennifer Lopez wanted to save her! Â I was surprised Karen was eliminated! Â 11 very talented contestants remain!The Black Eyed Pea's performed last night along with last years American Idol Lee DeWyze.
The season finale of "The Bachelor" is tonight at 7pm on ABC. Â There have been blogs and spoilers galore for this season, but no one except Brad, Chantal , Emily Â and a few other's will know until tonight who he chooses and if he will propose. Â Who do you think Brad will choose? Â I hope it's Emily!!Here are the Pro's and Con's of each lovely lady according to "Fancast":CHANTAL O.Pros
-Â Sheâs a sassy-cake. Not as abrasive as Michelle Moneyâalthough she was the infamous slapperâsheâs got just enough spunk thatâll keep Brad-dubious interested.
-Â At 28 sheâs âonlyâ a decade younger than Brad. Hopefully, that translates into a little bit more maturity. (Remember Em is only 24.)
-Â Brad likes her family.Out of all the families, Woe-Is-Me-Womack seemed to mesh the best with Chantalâs fam and the fact that he and her self-made millionaire pops have similar backgrounds (i.e. bad daddy issues) was icing on the cake.
-Â Sheâs open. She took the chance and told the emotionally insecure He-Man that she loved him. For a man whoâs normally, as Brad puts it, âa closed-off individual,â her communicativeness will make their budding relationship much easier to deal with.
- Sheâs an emotional roller coaster. Weâve seen the tears and her fussy fusses, and neither we nor Brad want to deal with her hormonal tantrums! Waaah!
- Sheâs an emotional muncher. Letâs just keep it real: Girlfriend suddenly made us scratch our heads when it was evident that she was downing some extra ding dongs. She better be carefulâlooking at Brad and his muscular man boobs, he doesnât look like the type who would tolerate a woman letting herself go.
- Sheâs a real-life Barbie. And since Brad looks like a Ken Doll, theyâd be the perfect Mattel duo!
- Sheâs classy. Her quiet confidence might give stability to Bradâs inner wild-child.
- Sheâs got a kid. Brad said he always wanted kids and seemed to take to âlil Ricki well. If he wanted a family unit asap, heâd already have one with Em.
- She can be a total robot. Itâs hard to read someone whoâs only emotional response to anything is âShut up!â
- Sheâs got a kid. Having a five-year-old might prove too much for a man whoâs still trying to find his inner Oprah.
- Sheâs got a traumatic past love life. The fact that Emâs one and only soul mate died is crazy-hard to compete with, and Brad-dilda knows heâll be compared to him forevahhhh!
- Sheâs super young. At 24, sheâs one of the youngest contestants to be on this season.
The next big question is who will be the next "Bachelorette"? Â That will be announced tonight on the Jimmy Kimmel show at 11pm!! Â Do you think it will be the new brunette Ashley?
I think Victoria Huggins is the most adorable contestant to audition for American Idol ever!! Â She has the looks, personality and she really can sing!! Â She is 16 and 3/4 years old and from North Carolina and even if she doesn't win she certainly won the heart of the judges and everyone who watches this video! Â Enjoy!
