Reunited and it feels so good. The following stories have very little in common besides the fact they involve a reunion of fan favorites from each of the aforementioned shows. Who doesn’t love a good reunification, right? Without beating around the bush, let’s get to the task at hand.
Jillian Michaels left “The Biggest Loser” last season and it hasn’t been the same since. I’m not the only one who thinks so. The ratings have plummeted for the reality competition for Season 12. Apparently, a beautiful blond tennis vixen didn’t fill the void left by Jillian. Poor Anna Kournikova. She and her tough-love approach won’t be back for next season. Now, she’ll have more time to reminisce about all her Grand Slam singles title wins. Ooops, I forgot she never won one. My bad.
For those longing for the days of Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper, you can get your fill this Thursday. The two will reunite for the first time since “The Biggest Loser” on Jillian’s new gig on “The Doctors“. The two personal trainers will show viewers how to use CrossFit to get your body back in shape. Harper will pit Jillian against Dr. Travis Stork for the ultimate in-studio strength and endurance fitness challenge. Be sure to catch all the action on Thursday, November 17 (check your local listings).
Oh Stabler and Benson! How I’ve missed you so. Is Christopher Meloni playfully demonstrating how he got the boot off “Law & Order: SVU” to former co-star Mariska Hargitay? If he is, he’s a much better sport than I thought he would be. It’s good to see that the former crime-stopping duo don’t have any hard feelings with the fact that their 12-year-partnership ended.
On Monday night, Hargitay showed up to support her pal at the 12th Annual Make Believe On Broadway Gala. Meloni has been a longtime supporter of the nonprofit organization, Only Make Believe. Who else is a bit nostalgic looking at the picture above. Don’t you just want them to lock up some rapist at Rikers? That being said, I’m really enjoying this season of SVU even without the beefy Meloni. Anyone else agree?
In my life, some of my most cherished friendships have come as a result of working together. That would seem the case with Ellen Pompeo and Katherine Heigl. The former “Grey’s Anatomy” co-stars spent some quality time this week to catch up and organize a little playdate with their toddlers. The two met at Cliff’s Edge Restaurant in Sliverlake for lunch. Don’t Stella Luna (Pompeo) and Naleigh (Heigl) look absolutely adorable. How amazing would it be if they became lifelong friends as a result of the ABC drama? In addition to a playdate, it would seem the two actresses also met for a belated lunch celebration for Ellen’s birthday.
Just in time for the holidays, two of my favorite singers from “American Idol’s” tenth season have joined forces to give a jazzy rendition of a holiday classic. Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams cover the holiday favorite, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside“. Their cover was produced by Busbee (Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson) and it’ll definitely bring out your holiday spirit. The track will be available digitally on November 21st, and will appear on Haley’s debut album due early next year. These two should just put out duets. Their chemistry always results in vocal magic. Check out their music video below.
