I”m not a “Dancing with the Stars” fan — D-list celebs learning how to tango? No thanks! — and find everything else on the boob tube Tuesday nights to be totally boring. Until now. Last night, “The Voice,” an “American Idol”-inspired singing competition, debuted, and against my better judgment, I tuned in. So glad I did! For starters, “The Voice” doesn’t bother to show any of the crappy auditions — contestants having already been whittled down to just the best. After all, judges Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green, and Blake Shelton are way too busy with their own successful careers to waste time listening to a bunch of talentless losers warble.

I guess once you lose a presidential campaign, you’ve pretty much exhausted your dignity resources, but Senator Bob Dole got back out there to push Viagra after his prostate cancer treatment left him with erectile dysfunction. And while I totally appreciate his need for a healthy sex life, I don’t really want to have to picture it. Thanks.
There are some guys that look totally doofy with hair. But then there is another breed of guy who looks silly without it. Take, for example, Jake Gyllenhaal, who has shaved his head for his role as a cop in the movie “End of Watch.” Maybe it will look a little better when his dome gets a little more sun?

“Okay, I had a crush on Dad. Okay, more than a little crush on Dad. My other real crushes were Donny Osmond and Jean-Paul Belmondo… Can’t blame men for wanting him, and wouldn’t be surprised if Dad even mildly flirted back… Dad somewhat enjoyed being called gay. He said it made women want to prove the assertion wrong.”
—Jennifer Grant, the daughter of Cary Grant, writes about her pops in her new book Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father. According to Jennifer, George Clooney is the only actor today who has her dad’s specific brand of charm. [People] Keep reading »
Another famous Kate has a wedding coming up: Kate Hudson is engaged! Kate announced this morning on “The Today Show” that she’s engaged to Matt Bellamy of Muse, by whom she is currently pregnant (and mush-brained). “Yes, I’m engaged,” Kate told Matt Lauer while promoting her new romantic comedy, “Something Borrowed.” “It just happened a week ago, I’m so glad you noticed. I haven’t really announced it and I felt like the announcing thing feels so silly, and I was just waiting for someone to notice.” Well, that’s one way to do it. Us common folk take out an announcement in the newspaper when we have an engagement, but I guess if you’re a celebrity, it’s easier to just announce it on a morning talk show. Anyway, congratulations, Kate Hudson! [Betty Confidential]
