Katie HolmesKatie Holmes is in talks to launch her own reality show.

The Don't Be Afraid of the Dark star has reportedly been plotting to reinvent herself as America's next domestic goddess in the vein of fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow and is considering showing her life on the small screen.

"Katie admires how Gwyneth Paltrow has carved out a foodie career. She's hoping this might be a great new direction for her. A number of prominent cable networks are interested in the show, which will see Katie learning to make different dishes, as well as concentrating on catering for children," a source said.

The report comes after Katie, 35, posted pictures of herself with her designer pal Zac Posen learning how to make fresh pasta at Mario Batali's New York cookery school, Eataly. It is thought Katie was getting advice from the top chef about her new show, especially since she only started to experiment in the kitchen two years ago.

True Detective may be one of HBO's hottest shows right now, but Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash aren't so sure that everyone truly understands what Matthew McConaughey (Rust) and Woody Harrelson (Marty) are saying in the cop drama.

For a short segment on McHale's satiric E! talk show, The Soup, the comedian slips into McConaughey's role while Rash pulls of his impression of Harrelson on the new series. In recreating key scenes, the pair not only exaggerate the characters' southern accents but also spout some nonsensical dialogue, a crack at the show's lines rich that are rich with metaphors.

Regardless of whether or not folks can understand what Rust and Marty are saying every Sunday night, it doesn't seem to be hurting viewership!

Fandango

WWE Superstar Fandango wants to be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.

The 32-year-old wrestler is a fan of the program and if the opportunity arose to compete on the ballroom show he'd jump at the chance. Fandango - who uses ballroom dance moves in the ring and is always accompanied by his "dancing partner" Summer Rae - first got into the series when fellow WWE Superstar Chris Jericho competed on it in 2011. When asked if he'd like to compete on the series, Fandango told BANG Showbiz, "I would like to give it a go, I just need the right partner - maybe a lingerie model! I've watched Dancing with the Stars, I watched when Chris Jericho was on it, I think it's cool. It's always cool to see the stars - whether they're a football player or an actor, an actress, a model, whatever - put into that situation of crunch training to try and win the show. How they deal with the pressures and their egos of not being really good at it is interesting to see."

Leah ReminiLeah Remini is to star in her own reality TV show.

The Kings of Queens actress, who quit Scientology last year, has been given 12 half-an-hour episode slots by TLC for her untitled program, which began filming today.

"Leah is a no-nonsense, hard-working, relatable mum, wife, daughter, and sister. Her sharp humor and unfiltered family are a perfect match for the network," said Nancy Daniels, TLC's manager.

The 43-year-old star will be joined by her husband Angelo - to whom she has been married for 10 years - and their feisty nine-year-old daughter Sofia, who "isn't afraid to keep her parents in check." The cameras will also capture Leah's opinionated mother, Vicky Marshall, unconventional father, George Remini, and her sister Nicole, who all talk in a secret coded language. There will also be cameo appearances from Leah's housekeeper and personal assistant, and Sofia's impatient British nanny.


Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan feels like a "prisoner."

The 27-year-old star left rehab over seven months ago, following the completion of court-mandated treatment, and began working on documentary series Lindsay for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, but in the first trailer (seen after the jump!) for the show she's seen breaking down as she admits she feels trapped by the cameras.

"I don't want them following me to an AA [alcoholics anonymous] meeting," she said, sitting in her apartment with a companion. When asked if she ever feels like a prisoner, she added, "Yes, all the time."

The Mean Girls actress opened up about her wild past and claimed she's not interested in partying anymore as she's already done everything there is to do. "There's nothing left in a having a drink for me. What's left in that feeling? Nothing. There's no party that I haven't gone to, there's no person I haven't hung out with. There's no situation I haven't been exposed to," she explained.

Piers Morgan Live

CNN has canceled Piers Morgan Live.

The news network have confirmed the nightly show - which was previously known as Piers Morgan Tonight - is coming to an end after over three years, though the exact date of the final program is yet to be determined. The British presenter told the New York Times newspaper he and CNN president Jeff Zucker had discussed the future of the program last week and decided to cancel it following "painful" ratings, which he believes is due to a failure to "connect" with American people.

Lindsay Lohan

Word about Lindsay Lohan's upcoming reality show initially surfaced when Oprah was rumored to have problems dealing with the troubled star, but things have been unusually quiet for Lohan otherwise (with all the Justin Bieber, Shia LaBeouf, and Kardashian stories lately - who can blame her for taking a back seat in the tabloids?). Naturally, to drum up some publicity for her series, OWN - Oprah's network which is both behind and set to air the project - has released a photo of Lohan to promote it.

Taken as if someone were either creepily lurking Lohan from a corner or simply catching a private-yet-candid photo, the 27-year-old has got her serious model face on, with her hair perfectly coiffed and styled to the T.

Bruce JennerHe might be changing his looks and separated from Kris, but Bruce Jenner isn't saying goodbye to starring on reality TV (not yet, anyway).

Reports that he might be doing otherwise have surfaced today, prompting the former Olympian to release a statement confirming his continued participation of his family’s reality show: "The reports of me quitting Keeping Up With The Kardashians are completely fabricated. I'm currently shooting season nine and look forward to season ten and any future seasons. I love working with my family."

Rumors of his departure were rooted in gossip that Bruce wanted to get out of the spotlight.

His estranged wife Kris was the first to object to the news: "This story is completely made up. We are filming daily with the entire family including Bruce and look forward to filming season 10 in January!"

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian with baby NorthKim Kardashian wants North West to star on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The 33-year-old beauty was catapulted to the spotlight alongside her famous family on the reality show and it is said she wants her seven-month-old daughter - her child with fiance Kanye West - to join the series.

"[Ryan Seacrest] personally reached out to Kim and asked her to consider allowing North on the show, even in just a limited amount. Kim really wants to put North on the show. Viewers and fans of the show want to see Kim interact with her daughter, and how she is as a mother," a source said.

However, rapper Kanye isn't keen on the idea and reportedly "shuts down" the topic of conversation whenever it's brought up. "Kim has always been an open book with her fans, but once Kanye came on the scene, that all changed. Kanye shuts Kim down whenever she brings it up. [He] doesn't want his daughter ever to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. He thinks reality television is tacky, and doesn't want North on display. He will be very happy when Kim is done with the show," the source added.
