Holly Madison seems to be another girl we just can’t get enough of. From Hef’s main squeeze, to “Dancing with the Stars”, her next project is going to be to star in “PEEPSHOW” the sexy new burlesque show in Las Vegas. The former “Girl Next Door” star will be replacing Kelly Monaco, when her 3 month contract is up in June. “Dancing with the Stars” seems to be a bit of a stepping stone or prerequisite for the show, since Madison will be the third star from Dancing to join the cast. Monaco was the winner from season 1 and Melanie Brown who is also currently starring in Peepshow was a runner up from season 5. Although the show does feature topless performers the stars themselves are remaining covered up. “Peepshow” is at Planet Hollywood and although it has just been a month is doing well.
Today on the Ellen you can see Pink officially sharing the good news that her and husband, Carey Hart, are back together. She shares with Ellen that luckily Hart has a sense of humor because some of the things she sings about him in her hit song “So What” are not all that nice. For example, at one point in the song she calls him a “tool” as well as some other things. She says it is kind of funny having him sit in the audience while she sings these things about him. Since I am a big Pink fan I am happy that the two are back together.
Delta is throwing a party for its employees and their families in Atlanta and you will never guess who they have gotten to headline their party – the Gin Blossoms. How cool is that? The Gin Blossoms are best known for their hits “Allison Road”, “Hey Jealousy “ and “Found Out about You” The company just really wants to thank it’s employees for all their hard work during these difficult times and to thank them the Gin Blossoms will perform. In addition there will also be a wine presentation and Jeff Francoeur, from the Atlanta Braves, will come for a visit. Delta is not footing the bill though, that thank you can go to their vendors. And just so their Minneapolis employees do not feel left out, they will be getting their own party at the end of the month.
“American Idol” is bringing back one of their own for the finale next week. Carrie Underwood is going to be performing the farewell song this year, “Home Sweet Home” by Motley Crue. She was just on Idol back in March when she sang with Randy Travis, but really can you ever get enough of Carrie Underwood? After the upset earlier this week, you just never know who will end up the winner. Will it be Adam Lambert (like several of the judges are predicting) or Kris Allen.
And finally this just in…Lou Diamond Phillips is the latest celebrity to join the interesting cast of NBC’s reality show “I’m a Celebrity …Get Me Out of Here”. It is hard to believe that Phillips is 47 years old and has agreed to compete against other celebs (and I use that term loosely)…Heidi and Spencer Pratt, Sanjaya Malakar (yes from American Idol), Stephen Baldwin (who just can’t seem to say no to reality shows) and Janice Dickenson. I am going to tune in just to see Heidi and Janice rough it in the jungles of Costa Rica without breaking a nail. The show airs June 1 on NBC.
Happy news for Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick – the couple is expecting twin girls this summer via a surrogate. The “Sex and the City” star has a 6 year old son James and the entire family is very excited! After hearing some gossip last year about Matthew cheating with a 21 year old I am very happy to hear some good news about one of my favorite actresses. Sarah Jessica is 44 and Matthew is 47 and it is said that the surrogate is a 26 year old divorcee. Other good news about a couple that has been dealing with bad news and bad publicity about an alleged affair are Bruce Springsteen and wife Patti Scailfa. The 2 however seem very happy and Patti joined her husband on stage Monday night during an event honoring Tom Hanks. The Boss called up his wife and then in front of everyone gave her a big kiss. Everyone cheered. Not only were people happy to see the couple together but that Patti was doing just fine after having fallen off her horse earlier in the month.
Teenage love, why can’t we just not stop talking about the break up between 19 year old Taylor Swift and her ex Joe Jonas, 19 of the Jonas Brothers? Well we all know singers like to release their sorrow and pain through their songs (just ask Pink and Alanis Morrisette) and it seems that Swift is no different and her song “Forever and Always” is about the break up between her and Joe. Joe is not mad to hear about the break up in a song and in fact he says “it’s flattering” and “it’s always nice to hear their side of the story. More bad news for Jon Gosselin from the TLC reality show “Jon and Kate Plus 8”. The rumors are swirling again about Jon and his cheating ways and this time it seems that he was caught and photographed with another woman coming out of a bar together at 2 in the morning. Witnesses also say they overheard him call her “babe” on more than one occasion. Jon is still denying any form of cheating and sent an email to US Magazine claiming that the woman is just a friend of his. He writes “Yes, I have female friends – but that‘s all she is. I’m not going to end my friendships just because I am on TV.” Where was Kate during all this? She was actually out promoting her new book called “Eight Little Faces” and was in Washington during the night in question. The show has been renewed for a 5th season which should be interesting since in the finale the couple did admit they were going through a bit of a “rough patch”. But hey who doesn’t, especially with all those kids and your life being filmed all the time for a TV show? They are a good family and those kids need their daddy. I hope they can get through the rough patch and work it out.
And last but not least….fact or fiction? Star Magazine is reporting that Jennifer Aniston has started the adoption process in California and is planning on adopting a little boy. The Star says she is even getting help from her friend Sheryl Crow who also went through the adoption process 2 years ago. I think we have heard this story 100 times already but I hope for Anniston it is true. She is 40 and not dating anyone so the time is now if she wants children in her life. I am sure if this is true or not we will be hearing more about it.
Well I am happy to say that Pink and her ex Carey Hart seem to be working on putting their marriage back together. The couple was married back in January 2006 but split up two year later. They have been spending time together and are trying to work on their marriage. The two are a very busy pair, Pink is currently on tour and Hart, who is a motocross racer, is also involved in several business ventures. He is keeping himself busy in Las Vegas with his Hart & Huntington Tattoo Co. that he has in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino as well as the Wasted Space concert venue and bar, which is also there and he co owns with the Madden brothers, Benji and Joel. So hopefully there will be a happy ending for this couple. Bruce Springsteen on the other hand is defending his 18 year marriage to Patti Scialfa. A woman, Ann C. Kelly, has made various allegations that she had an affair with Bruce on several occasions throughout the years. These allegations have been around since 2006 and have come up again since the woman is in the middle of a divorce. Bruce denies the affair and says he and his wife have “been together for 18 years and the best 18 years of my life.” Good for you Bruce, keep it that way! And while I am on the subject of marriage I will switch right into baby mode and share the happy news for Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. They have announced they she is pregnant and expecting their first baby in the fall. The couple has been married for 6 years already. That is going to be one cute baby!
The stars are doing some spring cleaning and donating some of their old favorites to charity. First is Taylor Swift, who donated her old (well I guess not that old) prom dress to DonateMYDress.org, which helps girls find their dream dresses through bringing together local organizations. Taylor’s long gold and cream dress by Jessica McClintock was sold for $1200. This was the organizations fist celebrity auction for charity. Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Nikki Blonsky were among some of the celebs that donated their dresses. Gwyneth Paltrow put some of her old things on eBay to help raise money to help a New York City organization, the Robin Hood Organization. Can you imagine what her closets look like? They are still up for auction and you can check out her Jimmy Choos and other items at Ebay.com.
IT’s good to be the first daughters…Sasha and Malia got to spend Easter with Fergie and her cute hubby Josh Duhamel. Fergie sang a few songs including “The Star Spangled Banner” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry” while the girls had the annual Easter Egg Roll that they played with their dad, the President. Everyone had a great time and including First Lady, Michelle Obama and her mother Marian Robinson. The theme for the day was “Lets Go Play” and there was healthy eating, along with soccer, yoga and an all day outdoor concert. A good time was had by all.
