A former “American Idol” contestant Alexis Cohen, known as the Glitter Girl, was killed in a hit and run accident on Saturday in New Jersey. She was just 25 years old. She auditioned for “American Idol” back in 2007 and tried again 2008. She did get an audition her first time but was completely turned away the second time. It is surprising she ever returned after the unkind words that Simon had to say of her performance. Not to mention the tirade she went on after she walked out of the audition. Let’s just say she was upset and didn’t have very nice things to say about Simon….there was even some cursing involved. On a much happier subject, Angie Everhart welcomed her first child, a boy, on July 24th. New baby is Kayden Bobby, and Angie plans to raise him alone. In fact she has not shared any details about who the father might be. Everhart is 39 and is best known for her swim suit appearances in Sports Illustrated and she has also hosted several reality TV shows. She has been in several films including “Another 9 ½ Weeks” and “Last Action Hero”.
Tomorrow night is the big “Bachelorette” finale on ABC…who will Jillian pick Ed or Kiptyn? As always ABC is egging us on with something. The most blank blank finale ever…yeah right. But you know I will be tuning in. Proposal…hmmm…I‘m not convinced, we will just have to see.
It is being reported that Amy Winehouse could earn $824,440 to launch a new perfume fragrance. That would be an interesting scent. When I think of her I pretty much think of cigarette smoke and B.O. – lovely scent that would make. The reports are saying that perhaps the company that wants her is trying to capture her 50’s style. Is that what that style is? The perfume business is big for the star, so why shouldn’t Amy Winehouse get in on the act too. Some of those famous people in the perfume biz include, Beyonce, Jenifer Lopez, P. Diddy, and Britney Spears to name just a few.
Katie Holmes helped the Thursday night ratings for the FOX hit dance show…”So You Think You Can Dance?” After a lot of speculation Katie joined the show for its 100th episode and did a pre – taped tribute to Judy Garland. The show had an increase in viewership of 17% which means that about 8.4 million people tuned in for the show, the highest ever. In addition to performing for the show she also took the money she earned and donated it to Dizzy Feet Foundation which awards dance scholarships to underprivileged children. Katie’s performance received mixed reviews. IT probably won’t help or hurt her career and overall it was good just nothing spectacular. She looked great through and it would have been nice if it were live and if hubby Tom Cruise had been cheering her on in the audience.
