As June Carter Cash, country star and wife of Johnny Cash, Jewel can show off both her singing talent and her acting skills. In the clip from “Ring of Fire” after the jump, you can see that Jewel isn’t half bad! Unlike Lindsay Lohan, the singer can actually, you know, carry her role. “Ring Of Fire” premieres Monday, May 27th at 8p.m. Not even Jewel can resist the siren song of a Lifetime biopic!

Breaking news! Notoriously snaggletoothed singer Jewel is sporting a decidedly straighter smile. She tweeted a photo of herself on the set of the upcoming June Carter Cash biopic she’s filming for Lifetime, writing that she now has “perfect teeth.” Given that she never “fixed” her teeth in the years she’s been rich and famous, I’m gonna guess that she’s wearing a mouthpiece and that her snaggle remains unharmed. I’m glad! Jewel is beautiful — and she looks lovely as June — but her crooked smile has always made her unique. Honestly, she almost looks unrecognizable — who knew teeth made such a difference?

Afterward, I actually tried to throw it all up, but thankfully I couldn’t do it,” she said. “I had seen so many performers develop eating disorders or try to control their weight with drugs, and I decided I would do no harm to my body.” Eek!

There are a zillion mega-reality shows out there, but “Dancing with the Stars” has long been my favorite. Why? Because it’s part “Strictly Ballroom,” part the “Surreal Life.” I mean, where else can you see Joey Lawrence out fox trot Cloris Leachman?
During the Grammys, ABC announced the new lineup of celebrities competing in “DwtS”‘ eighth season, which kicks off March 9th. The bizarro assemblage of “stars” (and let’s face it, the word should be in quotes) has us even more ridiculously excited about the show than normal. After the jump, the contestants we just can’t wait to see rumba…
