Blackstock, a Nashville-based talent manager, has been dating the original American Idol for about a year. He’s the son of Clarkson’s manager, Narvel Blackstock, who is married to Reba McEntire.

In the wake of this singer earning primary custody over the former couple’s two children, Usher has come out swinging against attacks from Foster, while Tameka has defended herself as a non-gold digger.

T.I. was a free man for a full 24 hours this week, until the rapper was sent back to jail for getting a ride to his halfway house in a pimped out tour bus. Such a method of transportation is against the law, apparently.
How does wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle feel about this development? She says it’s complete crap and here’s why:
Prison officials saw the vehicle ahead of time and didn’t say a word! Heck, they “walked him over, took pics and told him good luck in life,” Tiny tells TMZ.
“This is a bunch of bullsh-t,” Cottle added. “They should have said something before he got on the bus… T.I.More >
Mad Men won’t return until the spring of 2012, but at least fans can take comfort in knowing that Don Draper will be there – smoking, imbibing and reflecting – when new episodes finally air again.
Jon Hamm has signed a new contract with the series.
This move means the drama is that much closer to production, following a messy contract negotiation between creator Matthew Weiner and AMC.
While Hamm won’t be back in his Emmy-nominated role for months, he’s still churning out hilarious Bridesmaids quotes on the big screen. Seriously, if you haven’t seen this Kristen Wiig-penned comedy yet, doMore >
The first day of the Casey Anthony murder trial featured the stunning defense claim that 2-year-old Caylee Anthony drowned in the family pool.
“It’s a common tragedy,” lawyer Jose Baez said during opening statements, implying it was a mere accident and Caylee was not killed by Casey.
Is there any way that’s not bogus? As it turns out, the story is common to at least one fellow inmate in the Orange County Jail housing Anthony.
The prosecution has already presented its case. Now it’s the defense’s turn to posit a defense of Casey Anthony. How does this development fit in?

Many readers might not be aware of this, but Kelsey Grammer was once a TV star. Really, he’s won Golden Globes and been nominated for Emmys and everything!
Grammer will return to the small screen this fall, portraying the Mayor of Chicago on the Starz drama Boss. The position brings enough scandal and intrigue already, but there will be a twist: Grammer’s Tom Kane has a degenerative brain disorder…
Shauna Sand is a busy, troubled woman.
The “actress” submitted two filing in court this week against Laurent Homburger, one for divorce – and another for a restraining order, following a fight between the couple on May 18 that resulted in two arrests.
The argument itself stemmed from Sand telling Laurent she wanted’t to split, which follows the filing timeline: Shauna handed the documents in on May 12.
Sand claims Homburger held her down during the fracas and threatened to kill her. He must now remain at least 100 yards away at all times. As a result of this development, Lorenzo Lamas isMore >
James Durbin has to be honest: he didn’t see his elimination coming on Thursday night.
The aspiring rocker tells MTV he “definitely” was surprised by the development, and has spent the time since remember why he originally auditioned.
“It’s for my family and to try and give a voice to a genre of music that seems like it’s slowly fading away,” Durbin says. “I really accomplished a lot on the show, and I’m grateful for the opportunity.”
We all saw James fight back tears after learning of his fate, but he’s now accepted it. And is excited about all the future has in store.

Is Portia DeGeneres considering joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars next season? If and when she does, would she be given a same-sex partner?
Phoning in this morning to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, Ellen DeGeneres’ wife discussed both possibilities. She didn’t confirm anything, nor did she pass.
“They’re planning to feature a same-sex couple. You’re at the top of the list,” Ryan told her. “Goodness, you really do break news,” she replied, startled.
“I’m not gonna pass, let me think about it,” the Arrested Development star said. “I used to be a ballet dancer, it’s not completely aMore >
New Zealand’s Actors’ Equity and Screen Production & Development Association have decided that boycotting “The Hobbit” film, being directed by Peter Jackson would be a bad very idea after all.
According to Radio New Zealand, more than 1,500 industry workers marched through Wellington today chating “Save Middle-Earth.”
The march came just one month after several New Zealand unions told their members that the unfair treatment of nonunion performers and crew should be enough to stop production elements from being performed where the original Lord of The Rings Trilogy was filmed.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are best known as a couple because they exploit their children as often as possible, cashing in on the cuteness of their son and daughter.
With this pair as role models, Oxygen has greenlit Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings, a nauseatingly-titled new show that “will feature the celebrity duo helping couples prepare, both logistically and emotionally, for their wedding days,” according to a press release.
Look, if you need help from these morons in order to be emotionally prepared for marriage, trust us: you’re not ready.
