This is just sad. Before the weekend started there were rumors that American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe decided to leave the show. Well, now it’s official. Lythgoe, who was a LONGTIME executive producer for the talent show has officially been FIRED. He tweeted: "Just had 10 days in the Bahamas, rain everyday. I get back to the States and get fired. Sad!" Nigel Lythgoe’s relationship with FOX has not come to a complete end though. He's still an executive producer on So You Think You Can Dance. Of the reason for his firing, Lythgoe simply explained, "It's not a personal thing they just feel IDOL needs new leadership after 12 Seasons." This move was just one of probably many that FOX has in store in order to try and bring back American Idol to what it once was.
Congratulations to former Laguna Beach and The Hills alumn, Kristin Cavallari. She is officially married to Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler! The two exchanged vows at a Christian Church in front of 150 guests. The reception was in Nashville, Tennessee and had a very Southern, country feel. Guests danced to a live band and ate food like ribs and biscuits. The couple were first engaged in April 2011, but briefly called it off in July 2011 before reconciling. They have a son together. Glad to see they are making it work!
Sometimes it feels good to be right. Khloe Kardashian opened up about her long-time support for sister Kim Kardashian's current love and father to her daughter-to-be Kanye West. Khloe said, "We’ve known Kanye since 2006 or 2007. And he’s always been into Kim and loved her. He just always was so obsessed with her -- in a good way. And I just thought that was so cute, and she was like, 'No we’re just friends or whatever.' And I just was like, 'I think that you two are so similar with fashion or whatever you guys are both into.' And so I said 'Just give him a shot.' And then one day -- I don’t know what happened, she acts like it was her idea, like I never said it. 'Wait, I think I really like Kanye.' And I was like 'Hello! I’ve been telling you for years!" Maybe Khloe is a psychic too! Listen to your family!
Is there a baby on board? That’s one rumor that popped up all over the place during the weekend when it came to Avril Lavigne. Avril Lavigne, who's engaged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, hasn't commented on the speculation, but my sources are telling me that she’s not pregnant. Chad Kroeger proposed last August after dating Avril Lavigne for six months. The couple have not revealed a wedding date.
Update on Paris Jackson! After her suicide attempt before the weekend, she was stable and resting in the hospital. Now, Paris Jackson was moved to yet another medical center over the weekend and it’s the very same medical center where her father was pronounced dead on June 25th, 2009. She’s been to THREE different hospitals. Paris Jackson was initially taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital following her suicide attempt. The next day she was moved to a renown pediatric hospital, and late Saturday, she was transferred to the major Los Angeles facility where she’ll be getting further treatment. It’s also coming up on another year where Michael Jackson is gone and Paris Jackson is getting older, so that can’t feel good.
Is a secret American Idol plan in the works? Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest held what was supposed to be a top-secret meeting on Friday. The pair met up at an industry office building in Beverly Hills. Ryan Seacrest didn’t look happy to have been spotted. Radar Online is reporting that Jennifer Lopez is in discussions to return to the American Idol judges desk next season and her meeting with Ryan Seacrest may mean negotiations have reached the next level.
Let the partying continue, or not… I have learned that Justin Bieber was turned away from Lure night club in Hollywood early on in the evening, around 7 o’clock at night during their Toxic Luau Beach Day party, which included celeb guests Christina Millian and Reggie Bush to name a few. BUT, that didn't stop the Biebs from trying to have a good time anyway. My sources are saying that someone from Justin Biebers' team had come earlier in the day and told the club that he would be showing up. The club told him they wouldn't let him in because he's not 21 but he came anyway and tried to sneak in through a back door. But, he got busted when rapper The Game gave him a shout out while on stage. OUCH! That's when security saw him and escorted him out immediately. Just wait Bieber, two more years!
I guess dreams can come true, even when you’ve hit crazy. Amanda Bynes has been saying that she wants to be a singer and now a major record label is offering her a deal for her own album. Daniel Herman of Chinga Chang Records label has offered Amanda Bynes a record deal and is anticipating that they will be able to come to an agreement for the project. Amanda Bynes has expressed a desire to be a hip hop artist and Daniel Herman wants to make that happen. He said, “I think that she’s more gangster than Drake,” he said. Somewhere, I hear Drake screaming.
