    Posted by Natalie Randall

    This took guts! He should be proud!! 

    NBA center Jason Collins set an historical precedent Monday, coming out as gay in Sports Illustrated...

    "I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay," Collins, states in the cover story of the latest SI  "I didn't set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I'm happy to start the conversation."

  • "Teen Mom 2" star in jail AGAIN!

    Posted by Natalie Randall

    Jenelle Evans, one of the stars of Teen Mom 2, star is back in jail after being arrested yesterday for heroin possession and alleged assault of her husband, Courtland Rogers.

    The 21-year-old MTV star was taken into custody after police were called to her home in Brunswick, N.C. to investigate a reported domestic dispute between Evans and her 27-year-old husband of almost five months.

    According to TMZ, officials discovered 12 bindles of heroin and several other illegal substances and drug paraphernalia in Evans' possession. She was also charged with multiple counts of assault on Rogers, and was served with a warrant for failure to pay child support for her 3-year-old son Jace.

  • Huge "Idol" shake-up could happen before this season even ends!

    Posted by Natalie Randall

    Jennifer Lopez has been approached by Fox execs to return to "American Idol" for the balance of the season ... to replace Mariah Carey ... sources connected with the network confirm to TMZ.



    Lopez will appear on the now ratings-challenged show on May 16 to debut her new single, but Fox has bigger ideas -- they want to stop the hemorrhaging quickly and bring the former judge back on the show.

    Last week's ratings were the worst since the show debuted in 2002.

    Sources tell us Fox is scrambling to find a solution, and they think Lopez could be the answer. 

    No deal has been made, yet... But, The Hollywood Reporter says when Mariah Carey got wind of the plot, she allegedly threatened to sue. The site goes on to say that producers still hope to bring Lopez on for the season finale in May -- and that Carey, fellow newbie Nicki Minaj and possibly the entire panel (also including newcomer Keith Urban and veteran Randy Jackson) could be axed before the thirteenth season.

     

    Reps for Fox and Carey both denied THR's report. Show producer Nigel Lythgoe told THR: "I have not been included in any conversation regarding replacing Mariah with Jen this season."

    Although much was made of superstar additions Carey and Minaj -- and their intense, catty bickering on the panel -- the show's ratings continue to plummet, with its Wednesday performance show suffering its worst numbers since the series began in 2001.

    A show source also tells THR that possible replacements include a music professional, "not necessarily a star" to join the panel next year.

  • Find out how much $$$ "Dancing" stars make...

    Posted by Natalie Randall

    I've always wondered how much the "stars" make to compete on a season of "Dancing With The Stars"... And thanks to a leaked contract from one of the stars of the current season, we now know!

     According to Zendaya Coleman's DWTS contract -- which is reportedly standardized among all contestants -- she started with a $125,000 payment for joining the show and being on the first two episodes, then she gets paid as follows:

    Weeks 3 & 4: $10,000 per week ($20K total)
    Weeks 5 & 6: $20,000 per week ($40K total)
    Weeks 7 & 8: $30,000 per week ($60K total)
    Weeks 9 & 10: $50,000 per week ($100K total)

    If a contestant can make it to the very end, that's a grand total of $345,000 they'll earn.

    SURE, it's not millions, but not bad for some of these "stars"... many of whom aren't very famous yet or who were famous a LONG time ago.

  • What do you think about the latest "Bieber" scandal?

    Posted by Natalie Randall

    So, Justin Bieber stopped by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam while in town for a stop of his tour. 

    The home is the historic site where Anne and her family hid for two years before she was captured by Nazis in 1944.

    Bieber was there about one hour and then wrote the following in the guest book before leaving:

    Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

    That last line has stirred up a lot of conversation on social media, with people calling Bieber "a little idiot" who is "way too full of himself."

    One Facebook commenter wrote, "Glad he went, but, the last sentence is VERY self serving. He missed the lessons of Anne totally," while another added, "How does he manage to think about his own fame and success attending a historical place of such tragedy and injustice?"

    Twitter exploded after the news, as well, with fans and non-followers alike sharing their opinions on Bieber's remarks.

    The Anne Frank House however is defending the pop star... wiriting this on their official Facebook page:

    "The Anne Frank House was pleased to welcome Justin Bieber to the Anne Frank House last Friday... We think it is very positive that he took the time and effort to visit our museum. He was very interested in the story of Anne Frank and stayed for over an hour. We hope that his visit will inspire his fans to learn more about her life and hopefully read the diary."

  • Which "Dancing" star blacked out this week during rehearsals?

    Posted by Natalie Randall

    One "Dancing With The Stars" cast member has already dropped out this season due to health concerns... Is this lady next?

    In her blog for people.com, Lisa Vanderpump revealed:

    By the time Thursday rehearsals rolled around – let's just say I was exhausted and everything felt off. Gleb and I were rehearsing our cha cha and suddenly I just blacked out. 

    I was in shock when I woke up. I fainted only once before in my life. The doctor found that I had a viral infection with fever and swollen glands. And between trying to fight that and all of the stress on my body from running around, I ended up with low blood pressure and a rapid heart rate, which is why I fainted. 

    I am still fighting the bug and feeling under the weather but I am staying in the game as long as they say I can. And I will give it my best!

  • GUESS WHO is EXPECTING at 46 years old!?!

    Posted by Natalie Randall

    She looks way younger but Halle Berry is 46 AND pregnant with her second child, according to TMZ... 

     Sources connected with the actress and her fiance, Olivier Martinez, tell TMZ ... Halle is around 3 months pregnant -- based on the pics and some other facts we know ... she may be a little further along.


    That's likely since sources say they know the sex.  It's a boy.

    This could explain why Halle and Olivier were so upset when paparazzi got too close to her earlier this week at LAX while she was carrying soon-to-be big sister Nahla, who is 5.

    It's definitely worth noting ... Halle is 46, and Olivier is 47.
