Nicole Kidman Ready For ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Nicole Kidman Makes An Appearance On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'While Keith Urban is busy with the Hollywood auditions on ‘American Idol,’ Nicole Kidman is hitting the talk show circuit. She has a movie coming out this Friday called ‘Before I Go To Sleep.’ I want to see that one!  RELATED: Fasten your seat belt before watching the trailer for ‘Before I Go To Sleep.’

She also has a movie coming out in December: ‘Paddington.’ Yep, it’s based on the lovable British teddy bear. I’m sure everyone with kids will be making the trek out to the theater to see ‘Paddington.’ For now, however, I plan on having a scary Halloween with ‘Before I Go To Sleep.’ It looks pretty scary!

Colin Firth co-stars in the movie with Nicole. She’s strong enough to carry a movie on her own, but put the two of them together, and you’ve got an unbeatable cast. So you plan to check out ‘Before I Go To Sleep’?

Jennifer Lopez Sleek & Chic For ‘American Idol’ Hollywood Week Auditions

'American Idol' Judges Attend The 'Hollywood Week' Auditions‘American Idol’ judge Jennifer Lopez is best known for her famous derriere, but this outfit shows off another amazing body part. Check out those abs! I don’t even want to think about how hard she worked- and how little she likely ate- to get that midsection. She looks amazing, though. Here’s Jennifer with Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. They’re filming the Hollywood Week for ‘American Idol’ where they start whittling down the list of selected singers for the live shows. RELATED: Jennifer Lopez is wheeling and dealing like a BOSS.

I’m loving Jennifer’s outfit here. The crop top with the baggy pants is a great combo, and they pop in bright green. Those heels are sick, even if my feet hurt just looking at them. Sometimes, when it comes to shoes, the pain is worth it- LOL.

Are you glad ‘American Idol’ stuck with the same trio of judges for this season? I think it was a good move. It was getting to the point where there was so much drama among the judges, no one really paid attention to the contestants. That defeats the entire purpose of the show! Do you plan to watch ‘American Idol’ this winter?

19 Shocking Reality TV Scandals NO ONE Saw Coming (Well, Probably)

Reality TV and controversial, OMG moments go hand in hand. They’re the primary reason you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online (for example).

In the early days, though, such moments weren’t nearly as common or explosive. The Real World has nothing on some of the scandals of modern times.

Lately, it seems like we’re dealt one jaw-dropping reveal, moment or conflict after another. So many it’s almost become a struggle to keep up with them all.

That said, here are 19 of the biggest reality TV scandals of all time:

TLC Cancels Here Comes Honey Boo Boo


Give the network credit. It pulled the plug as soon as rumors spread of June Shannon dating her daughter’s former molester. EWWWWW!

Not all shockers take place with the cameras rolling, of course.

Jon and Kate Gosselin imploded off camera, while TLC just canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo because of June Shannon dating a child molester.

That never made it to air … and the show likely never would have if producers had known the tawdry extent of the Georgia matriarch’s past relationships.

Bottom line? Don’t expect an end to the madness anytime soon.

Despite what its title implies, you don’t watch Bad Girls Club: Redemption for the actual redemption, but for the bad girls clubbing each other. Just saying.

As long as producers and network executives believe that scandals equal ratings, awful behavior will continue to be the norm, rather than the exception.

Even if they don’t create drama on camera, the types of personalities likely to land shows in a more and more absurd TV landscape are likely loose cannons.

See now-canceled Sons of Guns and other examples.

This is just how it is these days. Some lament the state of TV for this reason, but there’s clearly an audience for it, and it appears to be growing if anything.

Click through and see which you would rank #1!

Curb Your Enthusiasm director Bob Weide confirmed Strassman’s passing on Twitter, writing:

“So sad that a sweet friend, kind person & wonderful actress Marcia Strassman lost her brave battle with cancer today.”

Best known for her lead roles in the TV series Welcome Back, Kotter and the comedy film Honey I Shrunk the Kids (along with its sequel, Honey I Blew Up the Kids), Strassman also served on the national board of the Screen Actors Guild.

“She was the funniest, smartest person I ever met,” said Julie Strassman of her sister. “And talented. She knew everything. Now I won’t be able to call her and ask her questions.

Jennifer Lopez to Sign MEGA Las Vegas Concert Deal: Eat It, Britney!

She may still be Jenny from the Block.

But Jennifer Lopez will soon be able to live like a queen.

According to TMZ, the American Idol judge is nearing a deal to perform often in Las Vegas and, based on the contract, she’ll earn more per show than Britney Spears.

Jennifer Lopez in Singapore

Lopez is being offered $350,000 per show – yes, that’s $350,000 PER SHOW – to sing and dance at The Axis’ Planet Hollyood, which is the same venue in which Britney is currently performing.

But Spears is only taking in $310,000 per show.

However, Spears has signed on to do 96 concerts in a two-year period, while Lopez will do 72 concerts over the course of one or two years (about three per week).

So Britney will earn more than J. Lo over the course of her deal. ($29,760,000 to $26,383,326, for those keeping track at home. Neither singer will exactly be going hungry any time soon.)

By comparison, however, Celine Dion puts on 70 concerts per year and gets paid a total sum of $33,320,000 for her time in Las Vegas. This artist’s bank account will clearly go on and on.

Born in 1932 in the Dominican Republic, De La Renta first made a name for himself in the US by designing dresses for Jacqueline Kennedy.

In the decades that followed, first ladies Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, and Laura Bush frequently wore designs by De La Renta.

De La Renta was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, but appeared to be in good health in recent months.

The news of De La Renta’s death broke just minutes ago, but the most famous names in the world of fashion are already expressing their grief and condolences on social media.

Appearing at this year’s CFDA awards, De La Renta spoke of his recent health problems, saying, “Yes, I had cancer. Right now I am totally clean. The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die.”

“We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is that you appreciate every single day of life.”

De La Renta leaves behind a wife, a son, and several step-children.

Lynda Bellingham Dies; English Actress Was 66

Lynda Bellingham, a beloved English actress best known for roles in Loose Women and All Creatures Great And Small, has died at the age of 66.

She was first diagnosed with colon cancer in July 2013, after which the disease spread to her lungs and liver. She eventually succumbed to the disease.

In August 2014, Lynda decided to cease treatment for her cancer in order to “limit the suffering her family would have to endure,” according to reports.

In a statement, Lynda’s agent Sue Latimer confirmed her passing, saying, “Lynda died peacefully in her husband’s arms yesterday at a London hospital.

“Her family would like to thank the nurses and staff for their tremendous care and support. Actor, writer and presenter … to the end Lynda was a consummate professional.”

In 1948, Lynda was given up for adoption when she was just four months old after her mother’s strict, religious family disapproved of her being born out of wedlock.

Adopted from Canada by Donald and Ruth Bellingham from Buckinghamshire, UK, Lynda made her acting debut in the 1970s in the UK soap General Hospital.

Along with Loose Women, another prominent role of Lynda’s included her part as The Inquisitor in the 1986 Doctor Who serial The Trial Of A Time Lord.

She also made a notable reality show appearance, starring in Strictly Come Dancing (the original Dancing With The Stars) in its seventh season.

Lynda is survived by her husband, Michael Pattermore, and two children.

Iggy Azalea-Snoop Dogg Feud: Real or Fake?

What began as an odd but mostly harmless feud between controversial, emerging rapper Iggy Azalea and hip hop great Snoop Dogg turned ugly this week.

Harsher and harsher insults, followed by full-on Instagram threats, soon sucked all the humor out of this beef, which T.I. had to intervene and squash.

As Ron Burgundy would say, that escalated quickly.

Iggy Azalea and Snoop Dogg

Was this celebrity feud the real deal, though, like Kanye and Jimmy Kimmel? Or an elaborate PR stunt, a la Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s pre-American Idol bickering?

Honestly, we can’t tell. Signs point both directions.

We’re still not entirely sure this was legitimate, but if it was staged, they sure went to great lengths to fuel the fire. Let’s break down the case for each …

Real: Snoop’s Iggy Azalea No Make-Up diss was rough, but sounds like his sense of humor, and was likely someone else’s meme that he just shared.

Fake: Iggy seemed hurt, rather than defiant, saying Snoop has always been “nice as hell” to her face and “I’m disappointed you’d be such an ass for no reason.”

Real: Snoop’s posse doubled down, dissing her again as he continued to post memes of her, such as one likening her to Marlon Wayans in White Chicks.

Fake: Iggy says it’s only Snoop’s two-faced behavior that bugs her, especially since her bodyguard saved his friend’s life … implying the two hang out.

Real: Iggy’s boyfriend Nick Young of the L.A. Lakers jumped in, dissing Snoop for going through a midlife crisis. Why get involved if it’s not legit?

Fake: Snoop shared a pic Nicki Minaj sitting by herself, captioned “Nicki sitting with other relevant female rappers,” fueling Iggy’s earlier “feud” with Nicki.

Real: That felt a little off to us, but Snoop then tripled down with a profane video, threatening Iggy’s life and dropping words we don’t want to repeat here.

Fake: Snoop apologized very, very quickly after T.I. allegedly called him. Iggy and Tip are tight, but since when does she need him to fight her battles for her?

Real: T.I. once fought Floyd Mayweather and threatened Apollo Nida’s life for talking about him. If he did tell Snoop to stand down … Snoop might take heed.

Fake: The American Music Awards are next month. Iggy leads with six nods. Snoop will collaborate with ANYONE big at the moment. Just saying.

Real: Snoop’s teenage daughter (remember, the Dogg is a father who’s 42 years old now) tweeted about the feud. With a sad-face emoticon. :(

Conclusion: We have absolutely no idea. It could go either way based on this evidence. What do you think? Cast your vote in our survey below:

 
Her Stage Name Has History


She took the name “Iggy Azalea” from her childhood dog and the street she grew up on.
