The celebs go head-to-head for the first time, and Omarosa plays everyone like a fiddle.
Fourteen of Donald Trump‘s best and brightest stars, including season-nine winner Bret Michaels, returned for another round of boardroom drama on the March 3 premiere of The All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. And even though both teams clashed — with each other and among themselves — there was one thing every contestant could agree on: Gary Busey is out of his damn mind.
Rather than Donald Trump pitting the men against the women — wait, you didn’t know he was sexist? — the Donald appointed Trace Adkins and Bret as team captains. But since he couldn’t go the episode without being at least a little bit misogynistic, the Donald forced his celebrities to sell balls. Meatballs, that is.
Omarosamay have been on Bret’s team, but she wasted no time declaring her intention to take him down. She even told Claudia Jordan she was Biblically inspired to get “vengeance” against the Poison front man — you know, because there’s nothing at all crazy about that.
Project manager Brande Roderick took some serious heat from her teammates in the boardroom, particularly LaToya Jackson, who said she was “unimpressed” by her weak leadership.
Ultimately, Brande’s team raised $230,533 and received an extra $20,000 from Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan — for some reason.
Team Plan B
Plan B’s inner turmoil came courtesy of Trace and guest-judge Piers Morgan. In fact, Trace was so sure Piers would try to “push his buttons” that he convinced Gary to give Piers a special tour of the kitchen — a not-so-subtle attempt to get Piers out of the way for a while.
Despite that tension, Plan B actually managed quite a bit of success: Penn Jillette, LisaRinna, Dee Snider and even Gary convinced their celebrity pals to donate a nice chunk of cheese.
In the boardroom, Stephen Baldwin was called out for basically raising zero dollars for Plan B, to which he responded by saying he’d only be willing to give it 100 percent if he was project manager.
Plan B’s total amounted to $419,539, ensuring no one in their crew would be going home — this week, at least.
Donald Trump Fires Bret Michaels
The minute Team Power exited the boardroom, a nasty fight broke out between Brande and Omarosa. The former Playboy model tried to blame Omarosa for telling her a different amount than they actually raised, but as project manager, everyone agreed Brande should have been more aware of what was going on.
Brande chose to bring Bret and LaToya back into the boardroom — based solely on the amounts they raised, according to Omarosa — and proposed LaToya be fired first. Ultimately it was up to the Donald, who proclaimed:
“Bret, you’re fired.”

It’s no secret that Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick have had a bumpy relationship, but on March 3rd’s episode of ‘Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,’ Kim Kardashian decides to step in and let her sister know that their issues could be her fault.
Kim Kardashian isn’t only protective of her sisters, but also of her niece and nephew’s father Scott Disick. So on this week’s episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami the momma-to-be told sister Kourtney Kardashianthat she’d probably end up alone in the lung run if she didn’t step up her love life with Scott.
“For me, I like doing stuff all together as a family,” Kourtney defended herself to Kim when she claimed that she never does anything one-on-one with Scott, always including their two children.
“He’s gonna cheat on you, and it’ll be your fault,” Kim responded. “You just don’t put in any effort. You’re going to like, lose him — no joke. You’re literally gonna end up, like, alone.”
Jeesh — now that’s tough love. That’s not the only juiciness on the episode this week! We even got to see Kim’s reaction when she found out her ex Reggie Bush is expecting a child!
Here’s ten more highlights from Kourtney & Kim Take Miami:
When Kim’s friend Karen told her that her ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush is expecting, we all held our breaths. Then she quickly said how happy she was for him, and followed that up with the fact that she believes that she will marry Kanye Westone day.
Jonathan Cheban won’t say the year he was born while Kim is setting him up on a dating website.
Kim tells off Kourtney and lets her know that Scott is going to look elsewhere for what she isn’t providing (ie. couple time).
Kourtney proves she’s a little romantic and plans a trip to Paris for her and Scott … with the kids.
Kim once again, puts Jonathan in an awkward situation by setting him up on a lunch with his business parnter and ex-best friend Simon Huck. Remember, when she set him up last week with lunch with Kourtney, after he Kourt had slapped him?!
“I love you, but I hate you,” Simon tells Jonathan over dinner in the most dramatic scene.
Kourtney tells Scott he’s “kind of like a philosopher.”
Scott gets dizzy on a carousel ride with the kids in France.
Mason and Kourtney sign a lock on the bridge in Paris to symbolize their love and throw the key in the water. Although she was heart broken when Scott didn’t show up, it was absolutely adorable that she signed the lock with her son.
Scott admitted that he didn’t realize Kourtney wanted to make it a romantic trip, and made it up to her with an adorable boat ride where he told her how much he loved her, and then brought her back to the bridge to make their own lock.
Plus, Snow wages war against Cora! Brace yourself, kids.
Mommy issues were in full force on the March 3 episode of Once Upon A Time: Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) reflected on the death of her mother, which she totally blames herself for, while Regina (Lana Parrilla) questioned how loyal she is to her own mom-ster in present-day Storybrooke. Oh, and we may have finally met Peter Pan.
Is Snow White Going Dark?
Desperate to get the dagger back from Snow and company, Cora (Babara Hershey) and Regina sunk to their lowest low yet: kidnapping the Storybrooke counterpart of Snow’s maid — played by Downton Abbey‘s Mrs. Patmore! — and trading her own heart for the evil weapon. And even after a teary-eyed Snow handed it over, Cora still murdered her.
But Cora’s victory came at a price: Regina learned her mother posed as the Blue Fairy when Snow’s mother was very sick. Cora manipulated Snow into believing she chose to let her mother die — all so Regina could eventually become queen, herself. She even learned that Cora caused Snow’s horse accident, which led Regina to meeting the newly single king.
Taking in everything that happened, Snow made an intense vow: “I’m going to kill Cora!” But does she really have what it takes?
Is Neal Also Peter Pan?
When Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) launched a sneak-attack against Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) in New York, filling his body with a powerful poison, there was only one way to save his life: get him back to Storybrooke ASAP! And when the gang realized the only way to get there in time would be to charter the Jolly Roger, Neal (Michael Raymond-James) was immediately volunteered to grab the steering wheel.
And in case you need more evidence that Neal is also Peter Pan, he told Emma (Jennifer Morrison) that our world wasn’t the first one he journeyed to after the fairytale world. If it was, he says, he would have been much older.
Hm… A world full of pirate ships where people don’t grow up? Sounds like Neverland to me!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of this week’s episode? Are you excited for a Snow-Cora showdown? Do you think Neal is really Peter Pan? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and theories!
We already know that Rihanna wants to have a baby with Chris. But now, a source close to the ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ singer tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the feeling is mutual.
The question of whether or not Rihanna and Chris Brown will have a baby together is not “if,” it’s “when.”
Chris, 23, read Rihanna’s ELLE UK interview, where the 25-year-old singer admits that she’ll “probably have a kid” with him. A source close to Chris tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Chris feels the same way — he would have a baby with RiRi, but that’s way down the road because they’re both young and in ther prime. But yeah, Chris wants kids one day.
And when it does happen, Chris and Rihanna’s kid will surely be loved so much.
“Chris has a big family to support him. Rihanna has a big ass family too, so you know that kid would be loved like you wouldn’t believe. But all in do time –that’s in the works, but years down the line,” the source adds.
Rihanna Is Not Pressuring Chris Brown To Have Kids
Chris has nothing to worry about. Even though he’s only 23-years-old, there’s no rush on Rihanna’s part.
Our source says, “They don’t pressure each other on stuff like that. They’re both mature when it comes to serious stuff. I don’t give a f**k how rich and successful someone is, 23 and 25 is too young to be having kids. Right now, they just want to be, you know, enjoying their lives, partying, doing what they do and loving each other. That’s on the agenda for a minute and they love what they’ve got going.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Rihanna and Chris have a baby together?
Kim & Kanye’s unborn baby is likely already blushing. The power couple pushes the boundaries with their new photo shoot in ’L'Officiel Hommes’ Spring 2013 issue! Is it too sexy?
Kim Kardashian recently admitted that she’s seeking to live a more private life, but a recent photo shoot with Kanye West in L’Officiel Hommes’ magazine makes us wonder what exactly she meant by private.
In a series of black and white photos for the Spring 2013 issue (taken by Nick Knight), Kanye is seen grabbing Kim’s naked breast. In another, Kim covers Kanye’s eyes with one hand and pulls open his mouth with the other as she leans in for a kiss. There’s not one photo of the couple where their bodies aren’t pressed up against each other.
The cover, which we revealed on Feb. 25, shows Kim and Kanye in a naked embrace, the reality star’s facial expression appears to be showing a moment of ecstasy. This is definitely one hot and heavy photo shoot!
Kim Kardashian Seeks Privacy Now That She’s Dating Kanye West
"My boyfriend [Kanye] has taught me a lot about privacy. I'm ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I'm realizing everyone doesn't need to know everything. I'm shifting my priorities," she said in the interview with DuJour magazine.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is the photo shoot too sexy?
We hope she’s okay! The Buckingham Palace reports that The Queen is in the hospital. Read on for all the details!
Queen Elizabeth II was taken to King Edward VII Hospital in London, a palace spokesman said on March 3.
The 86-year-old monarch was taken as a precaution, while she’s assessed over symptoms of gastroenteritis, a palace spokesman tells BBC.
While the palace also said The Queen is in “good spirits,” all official engagements this week have been canceled or postponed.
A spokesman for The Queen said, ”This is a precautionary measure. She was not taken into hospital immediately after feeling the symptoms. This is simply to enable doctors to better assess her.”
Prime minister David Cameron tweeted, ”My best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen, who is in hospital. I hope she makes a speedy recovery.”
Regardless, The Queen will remain in the hospital for at least two days, BBC’s royal correspondent Peter Hunt says.
The last time the monarch was in the hospital was 10 years ago, when she was being treated with a minor knee operation.
What Is Gastroenteritis?
Gastroenteritis causes inflammation of the stomach lining and intestines. The infection can be transmitted through contact with an infected person or contaminated food and drink. Symptoms can include vomiting, fever and stomach ache.
Potential treatment includes rehydration and possible tests to establish if the illness has been caused by an infection or an underlying problem.
We hope the Queen recovers quickly! Think positive with us, HollywoodLifers!
‘The body’ is taking over ‘America’s Got Talent!’ Heidi Klum has just signed on as the fourth judge on the long-running reality competition show.
America’s Got Talent starts shooting on March 4 and Heidi Klum will be taking one of the judge’s seats, as the Project Runway host signed on at the very last minute!
America’s Got Talent secured Heidi in a last minute negotiation and the model headed to New Orleans on March 3, sources close to NBC tell TMZ.
The show will hold its first audition in the city of Mardi Gras. And just in case you are someone who needs to see to believe, TMZ obtained a photo from set, showcasing Heidi’s name on the judging panel, right under the big infamous X!
Heidi will join judges Howie Mandel, Howard Stern and newbie Mel B. So not only will the judges panel be hot this year, it’ll also be spicy!
Sharon Osbournequit the show last year under controversial circumstances. Sharon believes her son, Jack Osbourne, was unfairly fired from NBC's Stars Earn Stripes because he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. "I just can't be fake," she told The New York Post at the time. "It's discrimination, and it was badly handled."
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Heidi a good pick for AGT?
We have another celebrity to be jealous of! After giving birth to her son, the Colombian singer stepped out looking better than ever!
Shakira, 35 had her son, Milan, a little over a month ago and it looks like she already has her rock star body back. Lucky her! It doesn’t seem like Shakira had to work out to lose any of her weight, but hopefully she will come out with her secret in the near future!
Shakira was seen out with photographer Jamie De la Iguana for his exhibition on Thursday Feb. 28 in Barcelona, Spain. She looked fantastic!
"We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born Jan. 2 at 9:36 p.m., in Barcelona, Spain," read the announcement on the singer’s website.
Shakira also explained the meaning of the baby’s name.
"The name Milan (prononced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification. Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth,” she said.
That day, the future judge of The Voice requested all of the members of her gynecologist team be women.
“Everything was organized, down to the smallest details," a source told The Huffington Post. "Though Shakira has always asked to have a natural childbirth, it is quite possible that, because of the enormous size of the baby, it could be a C-section. That is why within the medical team, they also have a plastic surgeon to assist her."
So HollywoodLifers, do you think Shakira looks great?
Justin claimed to have had the ‘worst birthday’ after getting barred from Cirque Du Soir in London on March 1. Now, a club spokesman reveals the real reason that Justin and his friends were shooed from the venue.
Apparently, celebrities don’t always get special privileges — even if it’s your birthday! Justin Bieber learned that lesson the hard way when he had no other choice but to leave his circus-themed birthday party in London on March 1, because he wasn’t adhering to Cirque Du Soir’s guidelines.
Unfortunately for Justin, 19, his friends, Jaden Smith, 14, and Ellapaige Roberts-Clarke, 17, were refused by Cirque Du Soir because they’re underage. Justin allegedly left the venue after five minutes because he didn’t want to party without his pals. What a guy!
“We, like all clubs in London, operate a strict age policy,” a club spokesman tells E! News. “As a few of the members of the party were under the suitable age of 18, the security team at Cirque Du Soir, London, clearly explained this rule and refused entry to the club for anyone who could not provide us with adequate proof of age. Justin Bieber visits Cirque Du Soir regularly, and he and his friends are always welcome, as long the members of the group are legally old enough to enter the club. This was simply a matter of regulation that we must adhere to.”
The club spokesman adds, “We are very sorry, and understand it’s his birthday, but our hands are tied with local authorities and rules we need to follow as club to keep our license. We clearly didn’t want to give him the ‘worst birthday.’ He is a friend and previously was always welcomed with open arms.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you feel bad for Justin? Hopefully, HollywoodLife.com’sHarlem Shake video cheered him up! Watch it below.
Next season may be the last for Jay Leno in the ‘Tonight Show’ spot, according to a new report. Is Jimmy Fallon a suitable replacement?
Jimmy Fallon may become the new host of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in 2014. Of course, if this does happen, as a new report suggests it may, the title would be probably be shifted to The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
NBC is is denying the move, but industry sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that NBC is eyeing to make an announcement in May, noting that the 2013-2014 season will be Jay Leno’s last. Jimmy Fallon would allegedly make a soft launch into the 11:35 PM time slot during the summer of 2014 before a formal premiere in the fall.
A Leno rep tells The Hollywood Reporter, “We do not speculate on rumor.”
Leno is currently signed through 2014.
Source say the network would bring in Jimmy Fallon due to the competition on ABC. The competing network moved Jimmy Kimmel into the 11:35 PM slot in January.
"The more time Jimmy Kimmel is in that slot, the more the young audience goes that way, the harder it is for Jimmy [Fallon] to keep that audience," says a source.
Furthermore, if David Letterman decides to retire after his contract is up in 2014, NBC may be afraid that CBS will try to court Jimmy Fallon to replace David. Sources add that it’d be in NBC’s best interest to make the move now and announce Jay’s departure as well as Jimmy as his replacement.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Jimmy Fallon replace Jay Leno?

Kevin hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ on March 2, bringing the most laughs with a parody of ‘The Walking Dead.’ See how Kevin makes turning into a zombie look funny!
Kevin Hartportrayed a guy transforming into a zombie during a parody of the AMC hit series The Walking Deadon Saturday Night Live on March 2. When his new friends suspect that he is turning into a zombie, Kevin blames them for being racist.
In the sketch, Kevin comes across Rick (Taran Killam) and other characters from the series including Carl, Maggie and Daryl. When they turn their backs to decide if they should let Kevin into the group, he’s bitten by a walker (another term for zombie). Unaware of the fresh bite, the group lets Kevin become “one of them.”
"What do you mean by ‘one of them?’ When someone comes from a different cultural background, they're automatically a zombie," Kevin says, prompting the group to apologize and insist they’re not racists.
When Kevin bites and kills Maggie (Kate McKinnon), the group then insists he’s a zombie, but Kevin says, "Would you rather I eat some fried chicken or watermelon?"
They feel bad again until Carl (Nasim Pedrad) shoots Kevin dead.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Was The Walking Dead sketch the funniest of the night?
