Last week I reported that American Idol pulled in it’s lowest ratings ever. The show, which once averaged over 30 million viewers an episode has dropped to 11.48 million and has been branded a ‘sad failure.’ So now, everyone is breaking down all the top reasons as to why the show is failing and or “stinks.” The main reasons: There’s too much competition. When Idol started in 2002, it was THE show to watch. Now there’s The X Factor, The Voice, America’s Got Talent and even Duets. Another reason, bad judging. People blame the diva combo of Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. Keith Urban makes the audience fall asleep. Another biggie, the contestants are boring and now forgettable, and lastly, bad themes.
Richie Sambora had a surprising departure from Bon Jovi’s current tour last week but now more details are developing. Turns out he wasn’t the one that decided to leave. Instead, it was Jon Bon Jovi who decided to let him go and has been trying to get rid of him. Apparently Richie Sambora drinks constantly and has a large amount of Hollywood bimbos around all the time. Bon Jovi wants to keep the tour free of booze and drugs because of his wife and Richie Sambora wasn’t helping. There is still no word on when or if Richie Sambora will be returning.
Here comes the bride! After canceling a previous wedding date because she got pregnant with her first and now SECOND child, Jessica Simpson has finally picked a new wedding date! RadarOnline.com is reporting that Jessica Simpson and her fiancé Eric Johnson have decided that they will marry this year and penciled in the date. Maybe she used a pencil because Jessica Simpson plans on getting preggo AGAIN. Who knows! But for now, the couple plans on marrying just one month after Jessica Simspon gives birth to her baby boy. The couple wants a summer wedding that is low-key. Potentially in Hawaii. When they were in Hawaii over the Christmas holidays, they checked out a couple of local spots where a small ceremony could be planned this summer. How exciting!
What do you know! Kristen Stewart is learning from her mistakes! Turns out she is FINALLY giving Robert Pattinson the space he needs. There were reports that she was suffocating him and being WAY to clingy, turning Robert Pattinson off. Well now, she’s been letting him do his thing. Robert Pattinson was even spotted out clubbing with Vince Vaughn and Joaquin Phoenix! Looks like it’s working because Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson proved this weekend that they are together and going strong. They were photographed holding hands! The couple enjoyed a day out with friends in Los Angeles. The Twilight costars and real-life couple of over three years, grabbed sushi with their friends and went for stroll together. They looked really happy and lovey dovey. How cute actually!
Time to put the rumors to rest! Kim Kardashian is NOT a food-shoveling, 200-pound, fatso and Kim is telling friends the proof isn't in the pudding ... it's in the yogurt. Kim Kardashian went to the doctor last week for a checkup and she weighed in at 151 pounds which is way less than the 200 pounds that the tabloids claim she is. My sources are telling me that the tabloids are all made up and here’s the proof. "In Touch" ran a cover picture showing Kim Kardashian shoving ice cream in her mouth. The issue, the picture is from 2009, when Kim Kardashian was basically tiny. Plus, the ice cream is actually not ice cream, it's dairy free, sugar free yogurt with fresh strawberries. Yeah, I’d rather have ice cream.
Wow, Britney Spears moves on quickly! We knew that Britney and her new boyfriend have been really hitting it off since they started dating a few months ago, but things seem to be going SO well between them that Britney Spears is already thinking about expanding her family even more… by having a third baby! She isn’t looking to get pregnant right away because Britney Spears is still committed to her residency deal that she’s about to sign at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. But, after that two year deal is over, her focus will immediately become getting pregnant again. If you remember, Britney Spears ended things with her ex Jason Trawick because he didn’t want any kids. I say, get through the two years first. That’s a long time!
Shakira Shakira! Looks like she’s in the middle of a $100 million dollar lawsuit thanks to her ex-lover, Antonia de la Rua. He claims that he was Shakira’s manager during their 11-year-relationship and that she owes him a LARGE chunk of her earnings. But, Shakira is fighting back! In recently-filed legal documents responding to the suit, Shakira says she was already an international star when she met him and while she did take his advice in some situations, he was never actually her manager. Plus, Shakira says that she NEVER signed any sort of contract that stated that he was! The only document that the couple did sign was an agreement in 2006 that if/when they did break-up, they would each keep their own assets! Don’t you find this interesting that this is all happening as Shakira re-launches herself on The Voice? I smell something funny!
Congratulations to Halle Berry! It’s official, she is expecting a child with fiancé Olivier Martinez! What’s great about this, which I think a lot of us tend to forget, Halle Berry is 46 years old! Not the easiest age to get pregnant. She already has a 5 year old daughter, Nahla, with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. Halle Berry couldn’t be more excited. Halle Berry says her daughter prays every night for a bunk bed and a baby sister. So at least now, she will have a baby brother or sister! One for two!
