Christina Milian got sent home on DWTS

She was unveiled as a new host of The View in a blaze of publicity in July. But after making her debut just one month ago, it looks like Jenny McCarthy may already be getting axed from the show. The former Playboy favourite is turning off viewers due to her controversial style on the chat show, prompting ABC executives to apparently consider letting her go.

When BRITNEY SPEARS released her new video "Work [B-Word]", there was some talk that she looked a lot thinner than usual . . . and that maybe she'd gone on a DIGITAL DIET, so to speak. Well, a few raw images of the video have surfaced, and they APPEAR to show that Britney was a little bit thicker before some computer trickery was employed to slim her down.

JENNIFER LOPEZ may be getting tired of her latest plaything.  She's reportedly getting ready to break up with CASPER SMART.  A source says, quote, "She's been hinting that the spark is gone."They're obviously in very different places in their lives . . . She enjoyed the relationship for what it is, but now that giddiness has turned to sadness." One thing making it tough for her to let go is Casper's relationship with her twins, Max and Emme.  The source says, quote, "They love Casper.  Jennifer's probably going to at least stay friends with him [for their sake]."

SYLVESTER STALLONE was charging $445 for photo ops at New York Comic Con this past weekend, and $395 for autographs.  SIGOURNEY WEAVER charged $200 for photos and $185 for her autograph.  And WILLIAM SHATNER and PATRICK STEWART were "only" charging $75 for autographs

So many names are being tossed around to replace CHARLIE HUNNAM in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie.  They include Ryan Gosling, Ian Somerhalder and Benedict Cumberbatch, just to name a few.  Although we're kind of holding out hope for the very beautiful and very perfect Scott Eastwood.

Superman turned 75 this summer . . . and to mark the occasion, Warner Brothers made an animated video tracing the evolution of the character, from his first appearance in the comics in June of 1938 to the present. It includes nods to the old George Reeves TV show, the "Super Friends" cartoon series, "Smallville", all the various movie versions . . . and even the old-school Atari 2600 video game.  And it's all crammed into about two minutes.

"The Walking Dead" returned for its fourth season on Sunday night, and it drew MONSTER ratings.  The episode attracted 16.1 million viewers.  That smashed the show's previous record of 12.4 million, which was set in March for the show's third season finale.

ANTHONY HOPKINS recently "binge-watched" all five seasons of "Breaking Bad" in just two weeks.  And he LOVED it.  He sent an email to BRYAN CRANSTON saying, quote, "Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen, EVER . . . [the show was] awesome."

 

 

 

SUSAN SARANDON and her real-life daughter EVA AMURRI MARTINO are playing a fictional mother-daughter tandem in a sitcom that NBC is developing.  It's called "Growing Ivy".  Interestingly enough, this is the THIRD time that they've played a mother-daughter combo onscreen

We may be on the cusp of seeing HISTORY.  The most recent "Bachelor", SEAN LOWE, and the winner of his love, CATHERINE GIUDICI, have actually set a wedding date for January 26th.  This is notable because . . . in 17 seasons . . . NO "Bachelor" couple has EVER gotten married.

This is pretty cool:  JON BON JOVI walked a female fan down the aisle at her wedding.  The ceremony was in Vegas . . . but the bride is from Australia.The woman had launched a campaign on Facebook to try to get it to happen.  Obviously, she got his attention . . . and since he was already going to be in town, he agreed to do it. They even played "Livin' on a Prayer" as he was walking her down
