Kelly Clarkson is no longer Miss Independent because she married Reba McIntyre’s stepson, Brandon Blackstock, yesterday in Tennessee.
American Idol’s first winner was a beautiful blushing bride in a Temperley London dress that is perfect for her carefree personality.
This is her first marriage and his second and hopefully their last!
The Biggest Loser is back on NBC tonight for its 15th season at 8p and it is all about second chances. Fifteen contestants are not only battling it out to win a cash prize, but they are also doing it to lose weight and change their lives for the better.
There are many reasons why the contestants are there, and for the first time in the show’s history the trainers pick who will compete on the show. Then once they decide who should be competing, they have to choose their teams. Of course no one wants to be on Jillian’s and do you blame them? Now that the teams are chosen, it is time for the hard work to begin and they contestants will give it their all.
Then it is time for the weigh-in and these contestants mean business. They drop pounds like it is nothing. One person even drops the weight of an average 9 year old kid. That is a lot of poundage to lose!
But one team doesn’t do as well as the others, so one of their contestants will be sent packing. That is unless their trainer decides to use their save and keep them on the show for at least another week. That is another thing they added this season, each coach is given one save. So will the losing coach use theirs week one, or hold on to it? You will have to tune into find out.
Now the big talk about this season is not the changes, not the coaches, but one of the contestants competing this year. It is a name we all know and it is Ruben Studdard.
American Idol’s second winner is also a winner tonight but not in a way he would want to be. That is because he is the heaviest contestant on the show this season. That is why he is there, he wants to lose that weight and be healthy. His health is #1 priority and he is getting himself in shape to promote his upcoming 6th album. So when he becomes healthy, he will be around for a long long time to record many more albums.
Now this isn’t the first time he has tried to lose weight and he recently explained on a conference call why he chose to do it this way. He said, “This is very different for me. I’m usually a very private and personal guy, and so do to this it was a lot to think about and I knew that it was going to be different for me.” Then he added, “But I just wanted to get myself together and get myself on a track to getting healthy. And, this show has really been that vehicle for me.” A vehicle we will see him be a driving force on as he tries be a Velvet Teddy Bear with a lot less stuffing.
As we know teddy bears are furry and as you can see in that clip above, Jillian is not happy with his back hair and she lets him know she wants him to wax it off. So when I was on that conference call, I had to know what he thought about her reaction to his “taco meat” as he puts it. He chuckled before his response, “You know, I feel that you know in today’s society, men have stopped being men and have let women prettify them. And you know, especially guys like Dolvett (Quince). You know, they’re all cleanly shaved up, you know no body hair. But in the ‘70s you see, all the artist you know from Teddy Pendergrass to Al Green, to you know the Bee Gee’s, everybody had chest hair.” Then he added, “You know nowadays, these guys, they’re too clean. You know, I’m okay. I’m cool in my skin. I’m just trying to lose a little weight. I’m not trying to change my manliness.” And he shouldn’t change the man that he is. He should be who he wants to be. So will Jillian get her way with him, Executive Producer Lisa Hennessy told us we will just have to watch to find out. To which trainer Dolvett added that we will definitely want to see that episode.
But we won’t only be tuning in to see Ruben possibly lose his “taco meat”, we also be watching as 15 people change their lives for the better. The Biggest Loser inspires you to get off the couch and be a little healthier. So what else do you need to watch this show every Tuesday at 8p on NBC?
And make sure to have the tissues ready because while they are shedding pounds, we will be shedding tears.
Contestants from American Idol have competed on other reality shows like Kimberly Locke was on Celebrity Fit Club, Clay Aiken did The Celebrity Apprentice and Kelly Pickler dazzled on Dancing with the Stars. Well now it is time for Ruben Studdard to join them because People is reporting that the Velvet Teddy Bear is going to be on The Biggest Loser.
Hopefully he will finally lose the weight and keep it off for good this time.
Jennifer Hudson was guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday and she told the ABC late night host that she has problem recognizing actors. So she told him a story that back when she was a contestant on American Idol, she went to the premiere of Kill Bill: Vol 2 with the other singers who were still on the show at the time. While she was watching it, she “fell asleep on the movie.” So when they got out of the film, QT asked them what they thought of it. Because she didn’t recognize him, she said to him “OMG! That movie was horrible. It was so boring.” Then someone finally got her attention to tell her who she just gave that sh!tty review to and she was embarrassed. So how did he react to her saying his movie was crap, she said he laughed it off because he thought she was joking. But maybe as time went on, he realized she wasn’t. And because of that, I don’t think we will ever be seeing the Oscar winner in any of his movies ever.
Kelly Clarkson had some exciting news to share with her fans, so she broke the happy news on Twitter! The first American Idol winner Tweeted, “I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever :)” She did not say how Reba Mcintyre’s stepson Brandon Blackstock, whom she has been dating since February, proposed to her, but I am sure it was very romantic.
A few weeks ago Ellen DeGeneres asked her if she was engaged, she said she was not…yet. She then explained, “We love each other. We’re totally going to get married one day.” Then she added, “He has two children. I’m new.” So I have a feeling his kids gave their dad their approval to marry her, and who can blame them afterall she is Kelly Clarkson! She is just so darn likable!
Ever since we got to know Ace Young on American Idol he has had shoulder length or longer Hair, but now all those locks are gone. The engaged singer was seen at the Donny & Marie Christmas show yesterday with a very short do and I love being able to see his eyes. what do you think of his new look!
Back in the ’90s Jimmy Fallon and Carrie Underwood were the singing duet Jim Carrie. Together they sang Country Rap music, or as it better known as C’Rap. There is a reason why most of us have never heard of that type of music and that is because it’s awful!
That Late Night was so stupid and yet it was so funny!
Many years ago before there was Facebook and Twitter, and American Idol was just a baby, there was a guy named Justin Guarini who came in second during the first season. After a failed movie with the winner of that year, he has pretty much been AWOL. That is until now because Old Navy has found him Just In time when Idol is making headlines again.
You know I have to wonder how many Justins Old Navy called before they had to settle with him. I mean there is Justin Timberlake, Bieber, Long, Chambers, Kirk, Theroux and Hartley, and you know they had to be ahead of him on the list. Although I am happy the others said no or weren’t asked to be in their Just In Time campaign because it is great to see him again. The 33 year is really looking good these days without his Sideshow Bob hair! Which yes I know, he hasn’t had in a while.
Kellie Pickler shaved her head a few weeks, so her friend who is going through chemo would not be alone. Well her hair is starting to grow back and now she is back to styling it again! As you can see in the picture she posted above and said, “Fixing’ my hair for the show…hope it’s not windy! Lol!” Hopefully the wind didn’t mess it up too bad because she is putting a lot of hard work in to it!
Last week Kellie Pickler shaved her head along with her best friend Summer, who started chemo two days afterwards for breast cancer. The former-American Idol contestant shared her story with the world, but she had not done a sit down interview with anyone up until now. Pickler told her story to Ellen DeGeneres and you can hear it all this Monday.
What Kellie did was so beautiful that I cried listening to her tell Ellen what she did and why she did it in this preview clip. I don’t know that many people that would do what she did and I respect the crap out of her for doing it.
I pray that her friend gets through the chemo, cancer-free and with as little side effects as possible.
