New "X Factor" judges Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian are already squabbling.
TMZ is reporting that Lopez likes to talk so much, he's stealing Khloe Kardashian's lines on "X Factor" -- and she's upset. Sources connected with the show said Kardashian got "really upset" because Lopez lifted her lines several times, reading his lines and then reading some of hers.
Has anyone considered the idea that maybe she just can't read?
Kardashian confronted producers after Thursday's show, wondering if Lopez was doing it on purpose. Apparently everyone figured out there were production glitches that caused the confusion during the live broadcast.
In other words, they placated her before she beat Lopez up,
Kardashian has apparently heard the rumors that producers are starting to realize it's a bad idea to make her read a teleprompter, because it robs her of her personality. It's supposedly difficult for a novice to read a prompter.
Right. Just ask Sarah Palin.
Kardashian is allegedly open to leaving hosting duties to Lopez and taking on the personality-driven interviews without a teleprompter.
BRITNEY SPEARS WANTS TO BE AN AUTHOR: Britney Spears is writing a novel.
Please don't spit your meal all over the room like that. It's not very dignified.
No, really -- the pop star and "X Factor" judge is in talks for a book deal with HarperCollins imprint
No, it's not a memoir. It's a novel, you guys. Like, with made-up characters and stuff.
Well, technically. Spears will follow the lead of such noted literary giants as Lauren Conrad and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and write something technically fictional that's based on her own experiences.
Spears' rep confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter that the book negotiations are happening. No word on what part of Spears' life the book would cover, though we real fans undoubtedly hope boy bands, head-shaving, and early morning Las Vegas weddings are involved.
KRISTEN STEWART DOESN'T LIKE VAMPIRE SEX: Kristen Stewart says vampire sex with Robert Pattinson was "awful."
That's right -- we're once again working a 'Twilight" star's into a conversation about sex just to drive you Twihards crazy. This is what's known as 21st-century impact journalism, folks.
Stewart made the remarks while promoting the upcoming "Breaking Dawn Part 2" film. The 22-year-old actress told E! News she can't imagine anyone else but Robert Pattinson playing Edward Cullen to her Bella Swan.
"It's so obvious; it slaps you in the face anytime you meet somebody who you're like, 'We definitely need to work together!'" she said. "We clearly are into this, maybe not for the same reasons, because he's a nut, but I knew instantly. With Taylor (Lautner) too. I take full and complete credit for those boys."
We're assuming when she says "boys," she doesn't mean Rupert Sanders.
It's a good thing Stewart likes Pattinson because, as everyone over 40 years old out there knows, the two had to film some very intense sex scenes in the two Breaking Dawn flicks.
"(Director) Bill (Condon) kept saying that he wanted to make this one feel like you're very much inside of the experience," Stewart said "Like you're there, you're sort of a part of it, which is odd. But to do that we had to look directly into the camera instead of at each other."
So, it wasn't romantic, she was saying. Maybe she meant, like, like making out with your director or something.
"It was awful!" she said. "I was like, 'Bill, you're depriving me of this experience. We've been waiting for vampire sex! What are you doing?!'"
Oh, we all know you two kids didn't have to wait long.
NO DOUBT REMOVES VIDEO: No Doubt has removed the band's "Looking Hot" music video from YouTube after receiving complaints from fans and the Native American community.
In the video, singer Gwen Stefani wears Native American clothing while being tied to poles and fighting cowboys.
That just sounds like another Friday night at Madonna's house.
"As a multiracial band our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures. Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history," Stefani, Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont explained on the band's official website. "Although we consulted with Native American friends and Native American studies experts at the University of California, we realize now that we have offended people. This is of great concern to us and we are removing the video immediately."
The statement continued, "The music that inspired us when we started the band, and the community of friends, family, and fans that surrounds us was built upon respect, unity and inclusiveness. We sincerely apologize to the Native American community and anyone else offended by this video. Being hurtful to anyone is simply not who we are."
Yeah? Then why don't you return my calls, Gwen? I find that kind of hurtful.
"Looking Hot" is the second single from the band's latest album, "Push and Shove."
SHARON OSBOURNE'S 'TALENT' REPLACEMENT EYED: "America's Got Talent" has three women targeted for the judge's chair vacated by Sharon Osbourne last season, according to TMZ.
The website's sources say producers allegedly have their eyes on Shannen Doherty, Carly Simon and LeAnn Rimes. The show is supposedly looking for a strong and opinionated woman.
Right ... Carly Simon. That Carly Simon. Right ... the one from the '70s. The one no one under the age of 50 will be able to identify.
The spot became available over the summer after Osbourne decided to quit because, she claimed, NBC dropped her son Jack from a reality show due to his MS diagnosis.
It's possible that might not be the only seat the show has to fill. Howard Stern and Howie Mandel are reportedly not under contract for next season. So the show might have an entirely new panel.
As for Doherty, Simon and Rimes, allegedly no offers have been made yet.
NBC spokesman Sharon Pannozzo said no such list of prospective judges exists. But TMZ said their sources are good ones. Because if they weren't, they'd certainly say so.
