Kim Zolciak's 'Google Me' raises a tough question (Also, hints she may leave 'Housewives'?)

Kim-ZolciakImage Credit: Dario Cantatore/Getty ImagesThe Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak has clearly outdone herself (and Bravo’s other Real Housewives) by releasing her second single. (And you thought “Tardy for the Party” was a fluke!) Zolciak gets meta as she talk-sings through the various ways you can see just how fabulous she is: “YouTube, Bravo, check my tweets/22 million follow me” (maybe that number is aspirational?), and makes a possible hint towards a future Housewives departure: “It ain’t gonna be easy replacing me/Those other other girls they wanna be like me/But they’re just Barbies/All body no brain/Google my name/I’m doing my thing.” You’ve heard the preview and now it’s time for the real thing. (Perez has the entire song linked here.)  READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Pro Derek Hough talks training, tanning, and having to put Baby in a corner

I am feeling so aliiiiiiiive! Dancing With the Stars begins tonight (update: read EW’s season 11 premiere recap here), and its most exquisite professional specimen Derek Hough, 25, has graciously agreed to answer some of our burning ballroom-related questions each week in between training sessions with his Star, Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer Grey, 50. Keep it clean! You know that’s always been Derek’s motto.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First song and dance?
DEREK HOUGH:
Our first dance is Viennese Waltz – can’t reveal the song though.

Have you decided on a nickname for your partnership (Grough, etc.) and was it extremely difficult to narrow down the field? I personally like Baby Derek.
We went back and forth a lot on our team name and logo. We finally settled on Jenougher which clearly is a take on both of our names.  We had a great “iconic” logo that we wanted to use but for legal reasons we weren’t allowed to. Our first take on everything was ‘Baby Derek’ and our logo was going to be Jennifer holding a baby in her arms that had my head. It would have been fantastic. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Brandy-Maks, Margaret-Louis have chemistry as expected

dwts-partnersThings we learn from the special Tom Bergeron-hosted video ABC shot to promote the return of Dancing With the Stars – and Castle — Monday night (embedded below):

1. Bristol Palin will move her hips even though she’s nervous to, says partner Mark Ballas. “Eventually,” Palin cautions, laughing.

2. Kym Johnson considers her partner, David Hasselhoff, an “American legend.”

3. Brandy didn’t hear any compliments from her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, until they sat down for their interview. “I did say, ‘It was good’… once,” he says. Maks’ streak of love-hate pairings lives!

4. Louis Van Amstel and Margaret Cho are going to be BFFs. You can tell by their body language, the way they’re leaning into each other as she explains her previous dance experience: “Belly-danced a little bit, and I’ve done some stripping, and I’m magic on the pole.”

Watch the video below. Season 11 of Dancing With the Stars premieres Sept. 20, with 12 contestants. Fifty-three percent of PopWatch readers voting in a poll the day the new cast was announced picked Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey and partner Derek Hough as the early favorites.

Lunchtime Poll: Does 'Nutcracker in 3D' need dancing?

Some elements of the trailer for Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky’s The Nutcracker in 3D make sense: Elle Fanning plays a blank slate/child, Nathan Lane is a kindly uncle, and John Turturro is a Rat King. Virtually everything else is jarring! Rat King’s rage blackout at 1:42, the Nutcracker’s nickname “NC” (-17?), a killer helicopter that can jog. What strikes me as the oddest thing — other than the fact that NC’s face is a dead ringer for the orange lady in the classic Sesame Street clip “Orange Sings Carmen,” — is the lack of dancing. Does it even matter? Does anything matter anymore? Watch the trailer and vote below. READ FULL STORY

'Real Housewives': Teresa hosting Delaware table-flipping contest

File this under Horrifying But Hypnotic (and Things That Are Classy): The cash-strapped Teresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is hosting a party at the Funkey Monkey — the self-proclaimed “hottest night club to hit Wilmington!” — on Saturday, Sept. 25. According to the club’s web site, she’ll be taking photographs and signing copies of her book, Skinny Italian. There will also be a table-flipping contest “for all the ladies!” with great prizes and giveaways. How does one win a table-flipping contest? Is it by the amount of destruction one does, like how many table settings you send crashing to the floor? Or is it all style points? In which case, we’d prepare to recreate the bleep-filled, Danielle-focused tirade that accompanied Teresa’s memorable table flip on the show. I want to say “good for her” for having a sense of humor, but even though that sort of behavior makes great TV, I don’t know that I’d want to celebrate it in real life… Which is why if I lived in Wilmington, I would just watch the contest and not enter.

UPDATE: Funkey Monkey owner Bill Stradley tells EW he has not decided on the criteria for the table-flipping contest, which is simply part of his “theme night,” but says he’ll have Giudice judge it. “It’s harmless,” Stradley stresses, noting that he was just having this conversation with Bravo. “She personally is not gonna flip a table. It’s not in any way demeaning or degrading.”

'Dancing at the Movies': What's your go-to movie dance routine?

You know that scene in a movie where everyone breaks out into a perfectly choreographed dance routine at a moment’s notice? (Ahem, the She’s All ThatFunk Soul Brother” prom scene, anyone? Why would anyone do that dance? More importantly, why was that song ever popular?) Now you can relive each one of those magical, yet confusing, moments thanks to this video, “Dancing at the Movies,” which includes some of the best cinematic dance moments of all time, cut to the soundtrack of Footloose. Go ahead and check out the clip below, and try not to cut loose. READ FULL STORY

Dancing Merengue Dog better than how many of the new 'DWTS' contestants?

The video of a dog (Carrie) dancing with a partner is making the rounds today, and if you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and watch below. Carrie has apparently been dancing for years (as evidenced by this TV clip that shows Modern Family star Sofia Vergara witnessing a performance and this one), but I think the raw street performance embedded below is required viewing to truly appreciate the level of talent we’re talking about. It’s when Carrie tilts her head to spin under the man’s arm and her raised paw that gets me.  READ FULL STORY

'Glee': Britney Spears jazzed to find out dolphins are just gay sharks

“All my GLEEKERS in the crowd, Grab a partner take it down.” –@britneyspears

Now that this Brit-on-Brit shot (Heather Morris vs. Britney Spears…”Glee Against The Music”?) is circling the Twitpic Ocean like a hungry gay shark, we are about a billion times more excited for Glee‘s Britney episode. Even though we can’t count.

'Dancing With the Stars': Let's brainstorm a dream cast for season 11!

In a stunning marriage of the skanky and the sparkly, ABC will announce the season 11 cast of Dancing With the Stars during Aug. 30’s episode of Bachelor Pad. (Skanky and sparkly are not mutually exclusive, of course.) It’ll be a creepy mass wedding co-sponsored in part by Macy’s and Valtrex. What a fun, sexy time for trashy reality TV!

As usual, ABC will not leak anything before the announcement, even if I lovingly prod the DWTS publicists through the Internet with my fringed magic wand. But here are some rumored season 11 hoofers anyway: READ FULL STORY
