Max George WANTED by Lindsay Lohan?

Really Lindsay Lohan really? After hottie Max George from the WANTED and that is what caused you to punch a woman? Wow! Max is HOT but is he worth doing jail time for?
All I can say is the "Lindsay Lohan punching a women over Max George" is great TALE for generating more buzz for The WANTED who have a new album out called 'Battleground' which will be what Lindsay Lohan will be doing in several bi coastal court rooms. I'm really starting to believe Lilo is a zombie sacrificial tool for the industry used to promote what ever they decide to market.

Lindsay Lohan: How Many Strikes Does The Spoiled Star Get?

Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay. What can I say that already hasn't not been wittily written by me before in previous blog posts about Lindsay Lohan getting in trouble (again & again)? TMZ reported and it was soon spread all over the internet that Ms. Lohan was arrested for allegedly hitting Tiffany Eve Mitchell in the face at a club. Wowee Wee Wow! How dumb or high or both can a person be to constantly trip the trouble fantastic and push the legal system beyond the bounds of black comedy and decorum? Lindsay, I know you are a White Girl but PLEASE you are getting obnoxious with the skirting the court system, getting away with breaking the law and always getting a job or a paycheck nefariously. Please stop, you are even making your White sisters angry with all your tricks. Please stop rubbing it in our noses that you are above the law, a better actress than anyone, that you are misunderstood, your mother is perfect, you were set up, that everyone is picking on you, your fashion style is above reproach, you don't have a drug/alcohol addiction, you don't have to pay for things that you want, you can run over people literally, you can get $100,000 by not doing in anything and that you can get by with your looks. Please stop Lindsay. Your antics are so bad that bulimics are using a picture of you as the fastest way to vomit.

Diamond White & Carly Rose Soneclar of The X Factor USA

 On Sunday, I saw a film crew and I asked a lady who seemed to be a part of the situation if the people involved were with the X Factor. I don't watch TV and get most of my news via the Internet so the only people I recognized was Emblem3 due to a story I read about them on The Hollywood Reporter. Plus, I've been covering DWTS All Stars all season and had little time for anything else.
I thanked the lady for letting me know that they were the finalists on the show. At first, I only saw two groups, Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony.
After further research I realized Carly Rose Soneclar, her brother Russell and Diamond White were apart of the van full of talent. The kind lady that I spoke to was Diamond White's lovely mom Debra White.
I just watched a few clips of Carly Rose and Diamond (both 13) and I'm blown away at their talent, fortitude and family. So I just wanted to say best of luck to them. Their talent speaks for themselves. I wish them all the best.

Homelessness In Hollywood Continues To Grow & Fester

Artist Bobby Ras & KAT (both off camera) witness a property owner trying to get rid of a mentally ill homeless woman who was camping out on her apartment steps. Whose right in this situation and what can be done about the growing number of homeless and mentally challenged people roaming the streets looking for shelter where they are not wanted or welcomed?

Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy Give It Their All

Two of the sexiest ever to make it to the finals of DWTS quest for the Mirror Ball, Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy were seen going to one more rehearsal late yesterday. Looking a little weary yet giving it a 110%. I'm exhausted so I can imagine how all the finalist feel.

A Glimpse of Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas

You have to watch closely, the figure with the blonde hair walking in the door way of the rehearsals studios is Katherine Jenkins. So watch out for her performance on the finale of DWTS All Stars Season 15.

The X Factor's Emblem3 & Fifth Harmony On Robertson

Derek Hough Warms Up In More Ways Than One

Covering Derek Hough this season of DWTS All Stars has been challenging to say the least. Derek moves so fast at times that I couldn't get the shot. It was frustrating yet inspired me to keep trying. A lot of people don't get what I do. My goal is to tell a story not to interfere with the people that I shoot. I have the utmost respect for talent. In the second video my camera was still on long after I realized it was. I was shooting with two cameras.

Can Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough Still Win The DWTS All Star Mirror Ball?

DWTS All Stars spend Thanksgiving practicing.  The All Stars behave cordially at rehearsals but it makes one wonder how bad do they really want to win? Can Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough beat the competition? Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani are dancing almost perfectly at the same time Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy appear to be Fan Favorites. Although everyone is acting "nice", I think all tricks, tactics, skills and luck will be in play Monday and Tuesday Night on Dancing With The Stars as the quest for the Season 15 DWTS All Stars Mirror Ball is handed out.

Former DWTS Contestant Hope Solo In The News For Domestic Violence Incident with Fiance

Former DWTS contestant and US Women's Soccer Team Goalie, Hope Solo was involved in a domestic abuse incident. News reports say that Hope is engaged to Jerramy Stevens (former Seattle Seahawk) and that the pair had plans to wed after dating for just two months. During a party, Stevens was taken into custody accused of 4th Degree assault by the arresting officers, after the police arrived and found Hope Solo with an injury to her elbow, dry blood on Jerramy Steven's shirt and a bedroom that was in disarray with Stevens hiding between the bed and the wall.
Getting married so quickly under such odd circumstances, raises RED FLAGS. Maybe the two need relationship counseling or need to end their relationship all together.
Stevens was released from custody after the judge determine there was not enough evidence to hold him but the former football player is still under investigation.

DWTS Double Trouble for Gilles Marini & Kirstie Alley

For a moment I thought about that song "Cry Me A River". 
I'm a little sad. 
Gilles Marini was one of my favorites to photograph ever on DWTS. 
Kirstie Alley was so entertaining and gave it her all.
What can one say? Except Thank You!
Odd twist of fate that Maksim and Peta leave at the same time. 
The Producers of DWTS are Diabolical.

Henry was kind enough to explain how he learns choreography, the upcoming Trio Dance with Melissa Rycroft/Tony Dovolani and more in the above video.

DWTS Alumni Chaz Bono Announces Weight Loss Goal

DWTS Alumni Chaz Bono is on the media circuit announcing a weight loss goal of at least 50lbs. Chaz will be documenting the journey publicly on the show THE DOCTORS over the next year. I wonder if Chaz will be forthcoming on the medication that has been prescribed for the ongoing transformation Bono has been going through and their effects on his body and mind. Has the hormones and various other medications caused Chaz to eat more and put on more pounds? Is Chaz Bono also dealing with depression and taking medication that is also wrecking havoc on his metabolism? These would be interesting topics that could be discussed openly instead of just having a boring show about a "celebrity" obese person (like most Americans who overeat and don't exercise).
Chaz Bono was one of the most controversial contestants on DWTS. It got to the point where people were vehemently for or against him being on the show. Also it became a derisive discussion on whether Chaz was a she or a he because technically, Bono never had the total reassignment surgery and it made people question if a person claims they are a certain sex is it true because they say it or untrue because biologically the facts differ? I'm sure the DWTS Producers were happy with the extra publicity they received with Chaz on the show but I wonder what ramifications Chaz Bono being on the show actually had.? Was it a positive look at a member of the Transgender community or was it more of a freak show to get attention? Why couldn't Chaz wait to do the show after he was more fit and healthy? Why show the worst negative male stereotypical behavior such as the infamous photos of Chaz walking without a shirt and dancing with his fly opened?
It also seems that one can't have an opened conversation about the whole Chaz Bono issue without being accused of being unfair. But the questions still remain and if you are going to use the media as your platform, then real questions are going to be asked as well as one's motives questioned and not just accepted blindly.

Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville At Villa Blanca

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Premieres Tonight so it only makes sense that the ladies of the popular reality TV shows will be out and about marketing their bread and butter.

Gilles Marini Inadvertently Does Al Pacino CRUISING Role On DWTS

I couldn't help but notice while watching the first dance by Gilles Marini on DWTS Country Week, that Marini's black low cut sheer V-Neck shirt and PVC looking pants looked vaguely familiar and also out of place. After I cross checked my movie index I remembered where I saw that look before, in "CRUISING" starring Al Pacino. Here is a trailer of the 1980's film Directed by William Friedkin

To me the film is a cult classic and I hear that James Franco is doing a remake of the controversial thriller that centers on the gay S&M scene. Specifically, I thought Gilles Marini was dressed like detective Steve Burns (Al Pacino) in the night clubbing scene.
