The Latest "American Idol" Judge Rumors: Nick Jonas and VA's Pharrell Williams! "Us" Magazine claims that Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams are the "frontrunners" to take over the two empty judges seats. Sources say that Nick and Pharrell would sit next to Mariah Carey...the only confirmed judge while Randy Jackson would move into a "mentoring role." Apparently Nick is pretty close to signing his contract and was just in L.A. for final meetings. American Idol feels that he will pull in a younger demographic. A source claims that Pharrell is supposedly still negotiating his contract...things are looking good but they're still working out the details!
Stevie J from Love & Hip Hop has dumped his fiance Joseline and has already gotten his new girlfriend pregnant!!! Stevie and Joseline just got engaged a few weeks ago...and it's not clear what happened but Stevie is with a new woman named Tammie Grant. Apparently they've known each other for a long time- she is his partner at his record label. She used to be married to NBA player Gary Grant. Supposedly the pregnancy was planned and now they are talking about getting married!
Lindsay Lohan had a very bizarre demand on the set of her new movie. She was set to do a sex scene for her new movie "The Canyons" and was feeling a bit hesitant. The scene required her to go topless. She asked the 10 man crew on the set to strip to their boxers. They were hesitant at first but obliged. They shot the scene in their underwear and all went off without a hitch!
Angelina Jolie is vying for the role of Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of '50 Shades of Grey'. If you haven't read the book- it is about a virgin seduced by the charms of a man named Christian Grey. Other stars in line for the role are Emma Watson, Katie Cassidy, and Scarkett Johansson.

Robert Pattinson wants to, "have a man to man chat" with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders to find out exactly what happened between him and Kristen Stewart. He feels like he needs to know exactly what happened, how far it went and how many times, so he can figure out if this is something he can move past. He's not ready to talk with Kristen, it's too painful, so he's going to Rupert. In case it matters to you, Rupert's brother-in-law says the affair went on for more than six months. Leopold Ross, the brother of Rupert's wife Liberty Ross says, "It was from the last half of filming and all through
post-production, clear into last week." Rob and Kristen are supposed to be co-presenters at the "MTV Video Music Awards" in September. Something tells me that's not going to happen. It'll be interesting to see how they promote the final "Twilight" movie, which comes out November 16th. This is no doubt going to be a huge headache for the studio.
Paris Hilton wants to be in today's Big Fat Rumor of the Day! She partied with Chris Brown in France last week, and now Paris has her sights set on him. Of course, Chris does have a girlfriend, she's a model named Karrueche Tran. And there's also Rihanna to deal with, if you want to believe the millions of tabloid stories that continue to claim they're still spending time together. But Paris has figured out how to get around all that. A source says, "Paris thinks Chris Brown is hot and really wants to hook up with him. She likes bad boys, and he is as bad as it gets. Paris has been pretending to be Karrueche's BFF and Karrueche is loving the attention. She knows how to use and manipulate other people to get what she wants." Supposedly, Paris doesn't want a relationship, since it would be bad PR for her. She's more interested in a steamy hook-up or two behind closed doors. She Tweeted a picture of them together.
ABC has announced this fall's "Dancing with the Stars" All-Star cast. The question coming into this was: Were they going to go for an actual all-star cast or were they going to go for all-star ratings. Well, it seems like they went with all-star dancers, for the most part. The cast includes six of the show's 14 winners including the first five champions. And only one "all-star" didn't finish in the Top Three in their season. Here are the all-stars, and where they finished during their previous run: Kelly Monaco - who won Season One Drew Lachey - who won Season Two Emmitt Smith - who won Season Three Apolo Ohno - who won Season Four Helio Castroneves - who won Season Five Shawn Johnson - who won Season Eight Joey Fatone - who was the runner-up on Season Two Gilles Marini - who was the runner-up on Season Eight Kirstie Alley - who was the runner-up on Season 12 Melissa Rycroft - who came in third on Season Eight Bristol Palin - who came in third on Season 11 Pamela Anderson - who came in sixth on Season 10
ABC will let viewers vote for a 13th contestant. Our choices are: Sabrina Bryan, who came in seventh on Season Five, Carson Kressley, who came in eighth on Season 13 and Kyle Massey, who was the runner-up on Season 11. You can vote HERE through August 24th. The winner will be announced August 27th on "Good Morning America". The season premieres Monday, September 24th.
Toby Keith did an interview for a small California newspaper where he admitted that he turned down an offer to be a judge on "American Idol". Apparently, Toby was offered Steven Tyler's job earlier this month, but he said no because he couldn't take that much time off from his career. Just last week we heard "Idol" was "seriously considering" bringing in Brad Paisley to be a judge. Sounds like they went to Brad after Toby said no.
Snoop Dogg was caught with a "small amount of marijuana" when he arrived in Norway last month for a music festival. He also had a "large amount of cash," which "exceeded legal limits." It didn't sound like a big deal, just $8,600 in fines, but as it turns out, there's another consequence: Snoop has been banned from Norway for two years. Is Snoop going to appeal the decision? Nope. He's totally fine with it. His lawyer says, "Snoop can live with the decision."
I've had a lot of fights with my razor over the years and some of them have ended up bad. Very bad. Ha ha ha! But l'm fortunate enough that my friend here at work, Melanie, introduced me to the faaaaabulous people over at Ideal Image Laser Hair Removal. Holy Holy Holy Moly!

Robert Pattinson has moved out of the house he shared with Kristen Stewart, and they're currently not in contact with each other. A source says, "I'm not sure they'll be able to recover from this. He is heartbroken and angry." It should be noted, however, that the house actually belongs to Rob. So his departure will probably only be temporary. The fling that Kristen had with Rupert Sanders, who directed her in "Snow White and the Huntsman," may not have been a one-time thing. It may have started months ago, while they were traveling the world promoting the movie. There are some pictures of Kristen and Rupert having dinner back in May, when they were doing press for "Snow White" in Berlin. Here's the thing, though: They weren't the only members of the cast and crew at that dinner. Charlize Theron is there, too, and even sitting in between them. And while they were doing press for the movie in Los Angeles that same month, Kristen took Rupert's daughter for ice cream. Which may not mean anything except that Kristen was being nice to a little kid. Then again, in hindsight everything starts to look a little less innocent.
After Lexie Grey died on the season finale of "Grey's Anatomy" last May, how could you expect him to go on? Dr. McSteamy is leaving the show. Eric Dane will not be back full time this season. The show's creator Shonda Rhimes says, "After much consideration and conversations, he and I have decided that this is the right time for his storyline to end." McSteamy won't be completely gone when Season Nine premieres on September 27th. He's expected to appear in a limited role for several episodes so the show can give him "a proper farewell."
It looks like Derek Hough is saying goodbye too. After ten seasons and three mirror ball trophies, the professional dancer is retiring from "Dancing with the Stars." He tells USA Today, "This season is kind of my swan song. It's my last hurrah. This is my 10th season, a great benchmark." He says he'd like to do more movies, "I want to do other projects. I want to push myself into other areas." Of course doing this competitive show, it leaves little room for anything else. At least the celebrities can keep their day jobs, but they're not coming up with the choreography.
Being neighbors with Justin Bieber might not be as fun as it sounds. That's what Kristen Bell and her fiancé Dax Shepard found out. On "The View" yesterday, Dax said, "The music and the parties and the paparazzi, I mean, it's like living in Lebanon now." But Kristen added, "In his defense, I will say we don't know the exact house the music is coming from. We just know since he moved in, the music has been blaring." They begin talking about Bieber at 3:32
Sometimes the tabloids get it right! Kristen Stewart apologized yesterday for cheating on Robert Pattinson with her "Snow White" director Rupert Sanders. She said, "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." A source says Kristen definitely wants to stay with Rob and make things right with him. Kristen did not apologize to Rupert's wife Liberty Ross, or their two children. But Rupert issued his own apology, saying, "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together." It was "Us Weekly" that broke the story which happened on July 17th in a few discreet areas around L.A. And not surprisingly, there was a photographer on their trail. The photographer followed Kristen from her house to a parking lot where Rupert got into Kristen's car and they proceeded to get it on. The photographer says, "Kristen was sitting up with her back against the driver's-side window, and this guy was kissing her entire body." But once they got the feeling they were being watched, they left in Kristen's car and went to a trail near the Hollywood sign. They parked and started making out again. Then they got out of the car and started groping and making out some more. The photographer says, "He was all over her. It seemed like they couldn't get enough." But every time they heard a voice or saw someone coming, they would split up and walk in opposite directions. Then they got back in the car and made out for another 20 minutes before she dropped Rupert off three blocks from his house. They kissed one more time, and he walked home. One thing we can't really say is if there was any actual sex between Kristen and Rupert. We also don't know if this was the only time they've been romantic. We haven't heard anything directly from Rob yet, but a source claims he's absolutely devastated, but doesn't want to say anything in public until he figures out what he's going to do.
You had to know this was coming, Kristen Stewart is getting death threats on Twitter for breaking Robert Pattinson's heart. Here are a few examples:
"Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson with her director! WTF?! *loads and cocks gun* Imma kill that b****."
"Dear Kristen Stewart, Thank you for cheating on Rob. Now he's mine. But I'm still going to kill you for breaking his heart."
"So Kristen Stewart finally cheated on Robert Pattinson. B**** is about to die. No one cheats on Robert Pattinson."
And then there is the fan. There is a woman that's so distraught over this cheating scandal that she posted this pathetic video to YouTube. I'm embarassed for her. She does drop the F BOMB a few times! Click to 3:01 to see her breakdown.
T.J. Jackson, has been appointed temporary guardian of Michael Jackson's kids Paris, Prince and Blanket. At an emergency hearing yesterday, the judge said, "This is not a power play by T.J. Jackson. This is based on the allegation that Katherine Jackson is being prevented from acting as guardian." No one is blaming Katherine for this. They think she's a victim herself. A source says, "It is not about taking guardianship away from Katherine. T.J. didn't step in to remove her. He stepped in because she is not there. He is extremely tight with his grandmother." But Katherine is not okay with this. Yesterday, Katherine told ABC News, "I am devastated that while I've been away, my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I'm coming home." She added that the court ruling that gave T.J. temporary custody was based on a bunch of lies.Meanwhile, she also refuted claims that her kids Jermaine, Randy, Janet, and Rebbie abducted her and forced her into the Arizona resort where she's been for over a week. Brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie Jackson are reportedly opposed to what their siblings are doing. They think it's an attempt to gain control of Michael's estate and they want no part of it. Sister LaToya is sitting the whole thing out. Katherine said, "There are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped. I am here today to let everybody know that I am good and fine. My children would never do anything to me like that." As for why she had no contact with the kids for more than a week, she said, "One reason I didn't call is I just gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls while I was here." Katherine was scheduled to return home yesterday. In her statement, Katherine mentioned that she had finally spoken to Prince and Paris.
The cast of "Modern Family" has been negotiating for a significant pay raise for the past few months and things are not going well. Now, they're playing hardball. Yesterday, five of the adult stars Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara filed a lawsuit, asking to have their contracts voided. Those contracts have them locked in for four more seasons, but they want those scrapped in favor of more lucrative deals. Production on Season Four was supposed to begin yesterday, but the cast didn't show up, so it was canceled. Ed O'Neill has a higher pay scale than the other adult stars because he was the biggest "name" coming into the show. But in an act of solidarity, he's joined them in their holdout. Of course, he wants more money, too. The fact that the cast is acting together puts a lot of pressure on ABC and the production company, because without all of them, there is no show. The cast of "Friends" used this tactic successfully back in the '90s to score huge deals. Neither ABC nor the cast has commented on the negotiations. If you're interested in the specifics, here's the breakdown: The six main cast members started out making between $20,000 and $60,000 per episode, with Ed on the higher end. They were given a complimentary raise this past season that bumped their salaries up to between $60,000 and $105,000 per episode. According to the "Hollywood Reporter", the cast rejected the studio's latest offer, which was $200,000 per episode for Seasons Four and Five, $225,000 for Season Six, and escalating raises up to $325,000 per episode through Season Nine. Again, this is for the five adult cast members not named Ed O'Neill. His negotiations have been separate, but he isn't getting what he wants either. Obviously, that seems like a lot, but the show generates a ton of coin. "Modern Family" brought in $164 million in ad revenue for ABC last season, and repeats of the show were licensed to the USA Network for $1.5 million per episode. There have been 72 episodes so far so that would put the syndication deal at around $110 million already. For comparison, if the main cast got an average of $250,000 per episode, that would be $6 million apiece per season and $36 million for all six.
If you truly "get" the '90s, you recognize what a fabulous show "Saved By the Bell" was, right? Well, some people decided to come up with a list of the Top 10 episodes EVER, but I have to admit, they are missing some of the best. What would YOU put on your list? Here's their list, with each episode's title and a brief description:
1.) "Rockumentary" . . . Guest star Casey Kasem tells the story of how "The Zack Attack" got together and their rise to fame.
2.) "Fake IDs" . . . Zack falls for a college girl, and in order to impress her, he lies about his age and he, Slater and Screech make fake IDs so that they can sneak into an over-18 nightclub.
3.) "The Fabulous Belding Boys" . . . Mr. Belding's younger, hipper brother subs for a teacher and offers to take the gang on a special field trip.
4.) "The Last Dance" . . . In order to afford a costume for the school's costume ball, Kelly gets a job working at The Max, where she falls in love with her new boss.
5.) "Cut Day" . . . Jessie protests the use of foam cups at school and Zack dodges Mr. Belding after betting Slater that he will be able to ditch his classes.
6.) The Malibu Sands Episodes . . . A "half season" of random episodes where the gang spends the summer getting jobs at the Malibu Sands club. I think this is cheating!
7.) "Save the Max" . . . Zack and Screech discover the room where Bayside High's radio station was, and they hold a telethon to save The Max.
8.) "The Wicked Stepbrother" . . . A two-part episode where Jessie meets her new stepbrother, Eric, who has "a dark side." In the first part, Lisa crashes Mr. Belding's new, red convertible.
9.) "The Fight" . . . Zack and Slater both fall for the same girl, and come to blows.
10.) "Dancing to the Max" . . . This was the very first episode. Zack and Slater both try to get Kelly as a dance partner before the big dance contest at The Max. Casey Kasem also guest-starred in this episode.
BEST EPISODE EVER!!! why didn't this one make the list??
We have discovered a paparazzi picture of Drake outside a urologist's office and he appears to be holding some paperwork on a holistic drug called Q-Urol that is used to treat Prostatitis. That's an inflammation of the prostate gland. It isn't all that serious, but it can be miserable to deal with. Take a look at the pictures HERE.
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, I'm just gonna rip this Band-Aid off. Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson. She allegedly hooked up with Rupert Sanders, the guy who directed her in "Snow White and the Huntsman". A source says, "Kristen is absolutely devastated. It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment. "She wasn't having an affair with Rupert. It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn't have happened. She never meant to hurt anyone. She's a good person who just made a bad choice." I hate that last line, what an excuse! But by the way, this director is married with two kids. In fact, his wife, Liberty Ross, played Queen Eleanor in "Snow White and the Huntsman."
Fox is "seriously considering" bringing country singer Brad Paisley onboard to be a judge on "American Idol" next season. He would join Mariah Carey, who was confirmed earlier this week. Bringing a country singer into the fold would mimic "The Voice",which has Blake Shelton and "Duets" that's got Jennifer Nettles, but it's a move that does make sense. "Idol" has produced successful country stars most notably, there's Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler, Scotty McCreery and maybe to a lesser extent Josh Gracin, Lauren Alaina and even Bucky Covington. It's unclear if Brad would want to do it, or if he's even been contacted, but he probably wouldn't be against it. He has performed on "Idol" and he brought Scotty with him on tour. One source claims the show is thinking about going back to the four judge set up like "The Voice" and "X Factor."
Sharon Osbourne may be quitting "America's Got Talent." It all started with this Tweet on the feed linked to Howard Stern's show, "America's Got Talent update: Howard isn't sure if he'll do another season and says Sharon Osbourne may not come back unless she gets more money." Sharon responded, "My darling Howard: Money is not the reason I'm not returning, it's because..." That's it. She didn't finish the thought, even though she has Tweeted since then. There's also no comment from her reps or NBC. Maybe Sharon wants to focus on her gig on "The Talk" but I think she wants to spend more time with her family. Her son Jack was recently diagnosed with MS.
Under The Radar: this is just brewing and may end up being the Hot Couple Alert tomorrow but we've heard Katy Perry might be hooking up with John Mayer!
