Paul McDonald, Lauren Alaina, or Scotty McReery likely to win “American Idol”

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: If history is any indicator of what’s to come, the winner of “American Idol” may be easy to predict. Given the trend of southerners winning seven of the first nine seasons, it follows that Paul McDonald, Lauren Alaina, or Scotty McReery might come out on top.
Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, David Cook, and Kris Allen all had roots in the south. In fact the only two “Idol” winners who aren’t from that region were Lee DeWyze and Jordin Sparks.
Ratings data from some seasons suggests that higher viewership in the Southern U.S. may contribute to the advantage enjoyed by contestants. Yet, this may go beyond a mere show of support for the region—some of the more memorable non-winners who have seen sustained popularity are also from the south.
Also in their favor: Lauren Alaina (Rossville, GA) and Scotty McReery (Garner, NC) have never found themselves in the bottom three. Paul McDonald (Huntsville, AL) did this week, though we know he wasn’t in the bottom two—Naima Adedopo and Thia Megia were both voted off.

Kim Kardashian apparently thinks she’ll marry Kris Humphries

HollywoodNews.com: Kim Kardashian has always admitted that she thought she would be married with children by now, so maybe it makes sense that she thinks she will marry current beau Kris Humphries.
Her younger sister, Khloe Kardashian, revealed that Kim definitely thinks Kris will be the one, states E! News. “She thinks she is,” Khloe said about Kim thinking she will be Humphries’ wife, “But Kim is a hopeless romantic.”
However, it sounds like Kim won’t be too sad if things don’t work out: “She likes having her boyfriends, and you know, when it dies out, I think it’s fun to have the new phase, and I think Kim likes that.”

Khloe Kardashian on initiating Kim’s beau with the family

HollywoodNews.com: Kim Kardashian seems pretty smitten with her beau, Kris Humphries, but her sister, Khloe Kardashian, is revealing that there is still one more step before he is in with the whole group.
Khloe claims that Humphries still has to survive being around the entire family, states People. “He hasn’t been around all of us yet. He hasn’t been to my mom’s house with the chaos, so the initiation process will happen this summer – if he lasts,” Khloe said about what he can expect.
But it sounds like he might be able to do it as he is already getting in with Khloe’s husband Lamar Odom: “Kris was out here [for] All-Star weekend, and we hung out. Lamar got to know him and we had fun.”

Kim Kardashian wants to be able to do what she wants

HollywoodNews.com: Kim Kardashian seems to be finding that with all her fame, she is also getting a little bit less freedom.

‘Jersey Shore’s’ “The Situation” explains Trump roast

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Jersey Shore’ star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino famously bombed at Donald Trump’s roast recently, but he is now trying to explain what happened.
“The Situation” told Ryan Seacrest that it isn’t all his fault in the end, states RadarOnline.com. “Nine out of the ten people that were there, they had their own work … [the show's organizers] had a script for me, I had a couple hours to learn it,” “The Situation” says about his jokes.
But, he is willing to take some blame and has apparently learned a lesson: “Maybe I should have studied a little more [comedy] than using someone [else's lines].”
Did you think he bombed?

“I liked the ‘Idol’ panel when we first started. We had different opinions, and I think it’s important you have different opinions,” Cowell said.
Cowell does admit that he wants differing opinions, but also people who are comfortable disagreeing.

Joan Rivers’ TV show renewed: ‘Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?’

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Let me just start off by saying that I think ‘Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?’ on WE is a pretty silly show – especially the episode when Joan Rivers snuck in the bathroom while daughter Melissa was taking a shower to try and snap some nude photos of her.
Joan had it in her mind that her daughter should agree to be featured in a nude video of some kind. Seemed cooked up just for TV.
Still, I’ve watched several episodes of the show and enjoyed it because, let’s face it, Joan Rivers is a riot.
Plenty of others agree: WE has renewed the series for a second season. It will return in January 2012 with 10 new episodes.
