Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg Snag Reality Show

Is television ready for Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg together? We’re going to have to be, because the couple just snagged a reality show!

The newlyweds will appear in an unscripted series, titled Donnie Loves Jenny, as a part of a 10-episode reality show deal with A&E (which is also network to Wahlburgers, a show about Donnie’s family and their restaurant). The show will follow them in their new journey as husband and wife–the good, the bad, and the downright ugly.

Jenny and Donnie released a statement saying:

“Not only have we found a new home together, we have found the perfect place for our exciting new projects to live with A&E Network. We’re so excited about this deal and look forward to a long and successful relationship creating entertaining and provocative unscripted programming with our partners at A&E. Our feeling is, who better to make our first show for the network about than about us? We love working together and with our crazy schedules this gives us the chance to both work and play together.”

The two will serve as co-producers, and their premiere episode features scenes from their August wedding at the Hotel Baker near Chicago!

Good for them! I might just have to tune in!

Meg Ryan Is Bringing Her Pinched Face to the Small Screen

meg-ryan-cannes-international-film-festival-2010-05

Not that we were exactly missing her, but Meg Ryan is about to make a comeback of sorts, and she is taking it back to where she first gained success.

Television.

NBC and Ryan’s production company are combining their forces to bring a pilot to the network that stars Ryan as a single mother who returns to the workforce and is supervised by a much younger co-worker, who used to be her intern at the company.

No word yet on who else is in the show or even a name, but for her fans, this will be a welcome surprise. Ryan has been keeping her name and (new) face out of the media since raising her daughter Daisy and dating John Mellencamp.

Let’s see if she still have that magic!

Randy Jackson is Out, Dawg

Another American Idol era is coming to an end, with reports that Randy “you’re pitchy dawn” Jackson is officially leaving and will not return to the judge’s table.

Apparently, Randy will still be part of the show as a mentor, but that’s not exactly the same thing.

As for his replacement, sources tell TMZ that Nicki Minaj’s deal is 99% done.

It seems everyone that needs to know, knows that MC isn’t a fan of Nicki and doesn’t really want her sitting at the judges table with her, but producers think this is just fabulous because drama gets ratings (at least most of the time.)

But the shake up isn’t done, because AI will also have a 4th judge. So, producers are said to be looking to fill the 3rd vacancy with someone from the country music scene and who knows who else for that 4th seat at the table.

Who would you like to see on A.I.?

Arsenio Hall Heads Back To Late Night TV

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arsenio Hall is officially returning to talk television! He’s partnering again with CBS Television Distribution for another late-night talk show.

“We’re excited to welcome Arsenio back to the family and partnering on his new, late-night syndicated talk show,” CBSTVD president John Nogawski said, announcing the news. “Arsenio had a substantial following with his previous late-night show, and that same 18-34 audience is now right in the middle of the late-night core audience of 35-54. Years ago, he transcended time periods and attracted a crossover audience while bringing a fresh perspective to late night. That same need in the market exists today as when we originally launched. We are looking forward to the same success with Arsenio’s seasoned expertise and appeal in this genre.”

Arsenio’s definitely excited to be headed back on the air.”It’s an amazing feeling to be going home to my old friends and colleagues and firing up our ‘Night Thing,’ ” Hall said. “Let’s get busy … again!” His former show, The Arsenio Hall Show, ran from 1989-1994.

Arsenio’s new show has already been cleared in markets including Boston, San Francisco, Atlanta, Detroit, Tampa, Pittsburgh, Denver, Cleveland, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Mo., Greensboro, N.C., and Norfolk, Va.  The untitled-for-now show will hit televisions in fall 2013.

Not exactly sure what the new show will be like, but I might check it out just to see what it’s going to be like. Winning Apprentice this season definitely put him back on the map!

And now, he’s blaming Oprah for NOT getting more involved in the reality show.

Rosie would give her right butt cheek for anyone…well, everyone except Elisabeth Hasselbeck or Donald Trump.

In fact, Rosie told a source today that she would love to take Britney’s place as the mental illness poster child.
“I sort of feel Britney has become the poster child (for mental illness). The kid is very young. She never had a childhood. She never rode a Big Wheel.

Kirstie to Be Oprah’s Bitch!

Since Oprah announced that she will have her very own network, (set to take the airwaves in 2009) she has been a busy bee tracking down talent. And, apparently, Oprah thinks Kirstie Alley has the goods.

According to a source, the show type that Kirstie would be taking part in has yet to be determined.

Tim Bennett of Harpo states, “We are working forward to working together to bring viewers everywhere her distinctive voice and comedic flair.”

Not sure this is something I would tune into. Kirstie is kind of lame, if you ask me.

Hey, O…I have an idea. What about a “View” spin-off?

Now THAT would be hot.
