nicole-scherzinger-cats

Before you get too excited, Nicole Scherzinger isn’t reuniting with the Pussycat Dolls. Although, it wouldn’t surprise me if she did in the future, if her new solo album flops like her previous attempt. Rather, the 36-year-old singer is joining the West End revival production of Cats. She’ll play “Glamour Cat” Grizabella for a 12-week run starting in December at London’s Palladium.

“I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show and I couldn’t be more excited,” Nicole shared in a statement. “To have the opportunity to work with Andrew [Lloyd Webber], Trevor, and Gillian is a dream come true. I grew up listening to Andrew’s extraordinary music and was lucky enough, a couple of years ago, to record Cats’ beautiful song ‘Memory.’ Andrew’s score is breathtaking and I am truly honored to have been asked to take part in what I know will be a very special time in my career. I can’t wait to begin rehearsals.”

This isn’t the first time Scherzinger has performed songs from an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. She’s previously sang songs from Phantom Of The Opera and Evita for various music specials. Check out the performances below.

7th-heaven-cast

Stephen Collins is best known for playing the patriarch of the Camden family on the long-running drama 7th Heaven. The 67-year-old actor is in hot water after a recording of him admitting to child molestation surfaced. According to EW.com, Collins has been fired from Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming sequel, Ted 2.

On the tape, Collins is heard confessing about an 11-year-old New York girl, specifically admitting to placing her hand on his penis and then exposing himself to her on other occasions. His estranged wife, Faye Grant, reportedly taped the admission during a therapy session back in 2012. In California, it is legal to record a conversation if the purpose is to gather evidence of a felony.

The New York Police Department is currently investigating Collins for alleged “inappropriate sexual contact” with at least three children. No charges have been filed yet. Listen to the taped conversation below.

One of FOX’s more promising new shows is Lee Daniels’ hip-hop drama, Empire. Sadly, it doesn’t premiere until early 2015. With this latest addition, the wait is going to be even more unbearable.

Naomi Campbell is set to recur as Camilla, “an alluring woman involved in a steamy affair with the much younger potential heir to his father’s throne, Hakeem (Bryshere Gray), over whom she exercises considerable influence.”

She joins a distinguished cast including past Oscar nominees Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe. Howard plays Lucious Lyon, the head of a music empire whose three sons and ex-wife all battle for his throne.

“Naomi is a beautiful actress. Underrated in my mind,” Daniels said in a statement. “She will be wonderful as Camilla. I am truly thrilled to have one of my close friends join us.”

On numerous occasions Michael Strahan has playfully talked about appearing in the Magic Mike sequel. It’s been a running joke whenever Channing Tatum appeared on Live! With Kelly & Michael. On Monday’s episode the 42-year-old television personality confirmed a role in the upcoming Magic Mike XXL. Excited for Strahan to shake what his momma gave him on the big screen?

In other Magic Mike-related news. Last week, Ellen DeGeneres scored her hot gardener Nick a screen test for the film. If you’re watching Season 12 of the long-running daytime show, Nick is a new addition that’s often shirtless. #thxellen.

The buff piece of eye candy first appeared on Ellen earlier this year as one of The Cream Pies. Not sure exactly why DeGeneres’ team didn’t use his real name Bill Reillich, but oh well. Whatever his name is, he’s definitely got the guns, the abs… I could go on. Watch gardener Nick’s meeting with the film’s producer below, along with Strahan dropping the big news.
