Having come in second place behind Ryan Clark on Celebrity Big Brother (UK), Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are continuing to open up about their experience.
The gruesome twosome, who said they only feigned being asses for the sake of ratings, now admit they feared for their lives during the competition!
Long out of sight and out of mind as far as the American public is concerned, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt re-emerged on UK reality TV this winter.
While the Big Brother house tends to be unpredictable, Spencer and Heidi both admit that they felt as if their lives were inMore >
The world loves it’s crazy, naked men. Err, at least the funny ones anyway.
The Hangover Part II rolled over the competition and finished it off with
Well? Who among American Idol‘s magnificent seven is no longer with us?
Did someone we expected to stick around a lot longer get the boot? Or did America send one of the guys many people had in the bottom three packing?
As we saw it, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery and Stefano Langone were in danger, with James Durbin, Casey Abrams, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart safe.
We were two-thirds correct. Jacob, Haley and Stefano were on the block …

With the top seven on tap to perform tonight, THG’s American Idol Power Rankings break down who we like this week and who we think is likely to go home.
Of course, who we think leads the pack means very little in the end (you can ask Pia Toscano), but it’s still fun to try our hand at predicting the reality competition.
Take a look at how we size up the field and see if you agree:
1. Scotty McCreery. Kind of a sleeper favorite. He should go country this week and go far this spring, though. Take it to the bank (NOTE: don’t, actually).
2. James Durbin. We were willing to give metal aMore >
After two weeks of Dancing with the Stars, The Karate Kid remains a knuckle above the competition.
Even a mediocre Jive on last night’s performance show wasn’t enough to knock Ralph Macchio from the top spot, as his 21-point effort, combined with last week’s impressive Foxtrot, leaves him with a total of 45, good for first place on the overall leaderboard.
We’ll also see Kirstie Alley next week, no doubt. She and Maksim Chmerkovskiy may have only garnered a score of 20 for their Quickstep, but they concluded the routine with an improvised kiss and left viewers buzzing. Watch below and thenMore >
Ready for an American Idol-off, readers?
On last night’s Motown-themed performance episode of the competition, Paul McDonald covered the Smokey Robinson classic “Tracks of My Tears.” The judges loved it, with Randy Jackson gushing: “You’re kind of the complete package.”
It was a solid performance, no doubt, but how does it compare to the version of the same song by Adam Lambert two seasons ago? Compare both renditions now and decide for yourself:

Karen Rodriguez was eliminated from American Idol last week. After wiping off her makeup and hugging goodbye to all the finalists, the aspiring singer says she took the long view.
She told E! News:
“I always lived by the words ‘Everything happens for a reason,’ and there have been so many instances in my life where I’ve lost some things and you don’t really know why [at the time], but in a few days or a few months I will see why. Maybe if I would have stayed in the competition longer, there would have been an opportunity I might have missed out on.”
What does Karen want to do next?More >
Dancing With the Stars kicks off a brand-new season this evening.
Who do you think could go all the way? Which pair do you think may surprise people? Who has absolutely NO shot and who will stick around way too long?
Will Petra Nemcova win one for the tsunami survivors? Can Kendra make her latest reality show turn one to remember? Will Hines Ward cut block someone?
We’ll recap the competition in detail tomorrow morning. For now, it’s time to share your predictions as the pairings prepare to take the parquet tonight …

(HMG Celebrity News) – The original Survivor champion Richard Hatch was busy utilizing his same old aggressive and manipulative techniques on the contestants of Celebrity Apprentice. But Richard is going back to the school of hard knocks Monday when he turns himself in to serve more prison time for refusing to play nice with the IRS. This after already serving three years in jail for not paying taxes on the $1 million he got from winning the first Survivor in Borneo. Richard was released on the condition that he file his 2000 and 2001 taxes and start to make restitution on the $2More >
She seemingly came out of nowhere, but Pia Toscano is here to stay.
The American Idol finalist, who received little air time prior to last week’s sterling rendition of “I’ll Stand By You,” was thrust to the forefront of the competition after earning the first standing ovation of the season from the judges for her semifinal performance.
“I felt like I never really showed all that I could do on the show, and I’m so happy that I did save it for when it counted,” Pia told MTV at last week’s top 13 party. “I’ve grown so much as a person and as a vocalist throughout this competition, and I’m soMore >
When Paul McDonald takes to the stage tonight on American Idol, he’ll likely be less nervous than any of the other 11 male semifinalists.
That’s because the 26-year old from Nashville has already recorded multiple albums with his band, The Grand Magnolias, and toured a bit around the country. The artist has more experience than most in the competition.
Will that result in a well-polished performance? We’ll soon find out. For now, watch McDonald talk about his group and listen to him sing the same original song that he used on an earlier audition, “American Dreams.”More >
The former has worked as a professional model, while the latter has been a part of the Nashville music scene for years. She’s played in numerous establishments and even penned a few original songs.
On Wednesday night, Jones and Chantelle will join 10 other women and compete for your vote on a performance edition of Idol. But let’s get the competition started a few days early, shall we? Compare the crooners now and decide: which will advance farther this More >
It’s still early to make any bold predictions, but this much is safe to say: Jacob Lusk must be considered one of the favorite to capture this season’s American Idol crown.
The soulful singer from Compton, California possesses a vocal range that is only matched by the incredible emotion he squeezes out of every performance. Definitely someone to watch, starting with this Tuesday’s all-male audition night.
But Scott McCreery might have something to say about Lusk’s march to the title. The 17-year old North Carolina resident is one of the only true country singers in the competition. ThinkMore >
They look very different and they hail from opposite ends of the country.
We wish each of these singers the best of luck, and we’d also like to train them for the competition to come. Starting Tuesday night, when the top dozen men perform, Loewenstern and Langone will be enemies.
So let’s match them up now: which of these hopefuls do you see advancing the farthest on American Idol?
See original More >
But while we’ll watch these two cheer each other on over the next few weeks, we all know the truth: they are competitors now. Each is closer than he evr dreamed possible to actually winning the entire thing.
With that in mind, let’s get this competition officially started! Take what you know about each aspiring champion right now and then vote below:
