Turns out the rumors and TMZ reports were true. Kristin Chenoweth is dating a former star of The Bachelor. In the most dramatic rose ceremony ever, Kristin picks someone NOT in my Top 10 Hottest Bachelors list. In fact, the diminutive Broadway star picked one of my least favorite Bachelors ever from the history of the ABC dating show. Oh Kristen, I expected more from you.
Chenoweth confirmed her new relationship with People magazine saying, “We have been spending a little time together.” The new couple have been spotted dining together in West Hollywood and at a cafe near this Bachelor’s home in Texas. The two reportedly met at an event in October. I wonder if he gave the former Pushing Daisies star roses on their first date or other flowers… daisies, perhaps? Find out who Kristin’s new beau is below.
Yesterday, Anderson Cooper debuted his newly formated daytime talk show, Anderson: Live. To say the show ran smoothly in the live format would be a complete lie. The show was actually a mess. Missed cues, technical difficulties and over-talkative guests plagued the debut episode. Thankfully, Cooper’s bubbly co-host for the day, Kristin Chenoweth made up for the some of the show’s untimely mishaps. My favorite part of the show was during a new segment, The First 15. Chenoweth really turned up the heat when asking Anderson about his summer.
“I think we’ve both had big summers,” Kristin jokes with Anderson. “I just wonder if you’d like to say, I don’t know, maybe, you went out a lot? Maybe you came out, and talked…?” Hahaha! Nothing like trying to poke the real subject out there Kristen. That certainly wasn’t very subtle. Anderson replies, “Everybody in my life has always known, you know.” He continues to explain, “it’s just not something I talked about publicly because as a reporter, I didn’t think it was appropriate. It didn’t seem part of my job.” Watch Anderson’s full conversation about coming out below.
I don’t watch “The Good Wife” but constantly hear good things about it. Perhaps, I’ll pick it up during the rerun filled summer months and catch up before the fourth season of the CBS drama premieres. When it does return, the show will have a trio of new characters to introduce.
First on board is Maura Tierney. Her addition will mark a mini “ER” reunion. Both Julianna Margulies and Tierney appeared on the hit NBC medical drama together, albeit for one season. Maura will play “”a self-made millionaire who has become the doyenne of Chicago Democratic politics.” Sounds juicy.
Second on the newbie list is British actor Marc Warren. The 45-year-old actor will portray the manipulative ex-husband of Kalinda (played by Archie Panjabi), for whom she still harbors an irresistible attraction. Sounds even juicier. Warren’s previous credits include “Mad Dogs”, “The Vice” and “Hustle”.
Last night, ABC debuted their new female power-driven comedy GCB formerly known as Good Christian Bitches. With this being the final season of it’s highly followed series Desperate Housewives, the network will be looking for something strong to fill that void. What should have been Pan Am’s time to shine failed miserably. Enter GBC. However, will the novel adaptation have what it takes to keep the ratings?
The show stars Kristin Chenoweth, Leslie Bibb and Annie Potts tells the story of Amanda Vaughn (Bibb), a recently divorced mother of two who, to get a fresh start, moves back to the affluent Dallas neighborhood where she grew up to find herself in the whirling midst of salacious gossip, Botox, and fraud. And, it’s AMAZING!
Already off the first pilot episode, I am hooked! Find out why below.
No, you don’t have to keep rubbing your eyes. That is American Idol judge Steven Tyler above immortalized as a famous Cabbage Patch Doll. And no, this isn’t a new Steven Tyler/Aerosmith merchandise scheme, but a new auction for charity; the Children’s Action Network to be exact. “CAN” is a national adoption awareness organization, which find homes for kids in the US who are in foster care.
Jakks Pacific, the makers of some of the most popular toys out there have created five celebrity dolls to be auctioned off on eBay to benefit the aforementioned charity. The auction began today and will run until November 17. The auction is to help raise awareness and funds for National Adoption Month of November. Former Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl has also been turned into a Cabbage Patch kid. This cause is very close to her heart.
“I’m excited to be part of this auction to raise money and awareness for foster children. Adoption is a cause very close to my heart as I have an adopted older sister and an adopted daughter. This auction is important to show the world how many adoptable kids are in great need for stable and loving homes.”
Other celebrities taking part are Al Roker, Broadway baby and television star Kristin Chenoweth and Disney channel and child star Raven Symone. Al Roker stated, “as a father, there is no difference between a biological child and an adopted one, Being a part of this auction is very meaningful to me as I have an adopted daughter and grew up with adopted siblings. Check out the celebrity dolls up for auction below.
Last night was a pretty dramatic night in the ballroom. How appropriate considering that the night was dedicated to Broadway. We two pretty stellar routines from this season’s favorites, Ricki Lake and J.R. Martinez. However, two stars did fall to the bottom of the pack in a big way. I’m talking about Hope Solo and Chaz Bono who scored the lowest for the evening and received the most devastating comments from the judges. But, who would be eliminated tonight?
Of course, the night wouldn’t be a true Dancing With The Stars elimination night with a fair share of fillers. Once again, star of the upcoming series GCB’s on ABC, Kristin Chenoweth took the floor to sing along with country star Martina McBride who also performed. However, the number that stole the show was the Macy’s Stars of Dance routine, choreographed and conceived by Kenny Ortega and starring his High School Musical friend and colleague, Corbin Bleu. His medley of Broadway songs was electrifying and the dancing with absolutely stunning. Check out his performance below.
Last night was Broadway night on Dancing With The Stars with routines dedicated to songs from shows that have graced the stages of the great white way. To kick the show off, the cast of Sister Act performed a rocking medley of songs from the Tony nominated show. What a great way to begin the night. After that, the stars kicked off their performances. Tonight, we would see everything from Cha Chas, to Quicksteps, and even a Rumba.
But, now that the stars have reached the halfway point in the competition, it’s time for them to endure the group dance. This season, the routine was choreographed by Kevin Maher and you can check it out at the end of the recap. So, with the stars at their breaking point having to learn two dances, who would crack under the pressure and who would rise to the challenge?
With only a few competitors left in the season, I thought I would provide you with all the routines to watch versus picking just my favorites. So, watch all of the dances and check out their scores below.
With Fall TV now in motion, the time has come to honor the talent from the past year at the Primetime Emmy Awards this coming Sunday. While it’s exciting to see who wins, it certainly begs the question, after the glitz and glam of television’s biggest night, how does life change after winning an Emmy? Luckily, in the video you’re about to watch, some of my favorite stars answer this very intriguing question.
Jeremy Piven has been of course very grateful to have been recognized by his peers, winning three Emmy Awards, but really, he feels that having kids has been more important. If you look at the image above, you can catch of glimpse of his beautiful children. The adorable Kristin Chenoweth, she says that life hasn’t changed that much for her, considering in her acceptance speech she said that she wanted to be on 24, Mad Men, or The Office and none of those requests have come to be.
The hilarious Jackée Harry says she’s still the same humble woman she’s always been. It’s not like she enters a room and says, “I’M JACKEE…I WON AN EMMY!” Or does she? Megan Mullally (known for her amazing Karen Walker character) feels that her day to day life after winning two Emmy awards is still pretty much the same. I guess that is probably true, if you ignore the fact that she showers with her trophies and does pretty much everything else with them too.
Watch the funny promo for the Emmy Awards below and watch the show this coming Sunday, hosted by Jane Lynch!
