Kim Kardashian insists reality TV is still her "number one priority."
The 32-year-old star - who is pregnant with her first child with rapper Kanye West - has announced she will continue to film the E! series Keeping Up With The Kardashians until "at least season 10," despite recently hinting that she wants to live a more private life once their baby arrives in July.
Kim attempted to clarify her plans on her blog on Wednesday, writing, "As everyone knows, we are extremely proud of the show and all of us are staying on through at least season 10. The show remains to be my number one priority and it's a big part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it. It has given me such a rare opportunity to share more of my life with all of you and has brought my family closer to each other. I'm looking forward to the new season and beyond. The fact is that I have many goals that I still need to reach and accomplish and I (like so many of you) don't know where my life will be in the next couple of years, but I'm looking forward to continuing this journey."
Khloe Kardashian has reportedly been fired from X Factor.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star joined Simon Cowell's show last year as a co-presenter with Mario Lopez and while he is set to return next season, Khloe will not be back.
"They are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe," a source told The New York Post.
Khloe previously revealed she was asked not to take any hosting lessons before she started, leaving her unprepared for what to expect: "I've never done live TV before, and I was asked to not do any hosting lessons because they wanted me to be just myself. I found the day before because the stage was just built, that I couldn't read the teleprompter without glasses, so I had to get contacts the day before. Just learning how there's a screaming audience and you don't yell because the mic is right there... I will have an earpiece in my ear, and while I'm trying to read the teleprompter then I have someone counting down... and they're like, 'Okay, ask Simon this or that' ... There were so just so many pieces I never knew were involved in live TV."
Demi Lovato believes it will be difficult to replace Britney Spears on the X Factor.
Britney, 31, revealed last month that she won't return for the next season of the reality TV show but Demi is worried about finding someone who can match the "Toxic" singer.
"I mean, who can replace Britney, let's be honest," she said.
Britney announced her decision to quit her role as a mentor on the Fox show in order to focus on her music career and admitted watching the contestants perform every week helped her to make the decision to leave. "I've made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it's time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can't wait to get back out there and do what I love most," she said.
Naomi Campbell has always been "afraid" of being on television. The 42-year-old British beauty mentors aspiring models on new show The Face and admitted she initially felt uncomfortable at the thought of being on camera as she has always been keen to protect her privacy.
"I always said I don't want to do television because I was afraid of it, to be honest, and what the fear was, [was] that I had tried to live as privately as I [could] so I didn't feel it would be in my comfort zone to have a camera following me around. But this was a whole different thing. It's not that way at all. It's me getting to share 26 years of what I have been blessed to learn and know and find out about and achieve, with girls who want to be in our business and that's far more fun."
At the height of her career, Naomi - along with Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Kate Moss - was regarded as a supermodel but she dislikes the term, and believes it is now overused in reference to current "working models."
Keith Urban's all-female household prepared him well for American Idol.
The 45-year-old singer - who sits in between warring pop divas Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on the panel of the singing competition - revealed that living in a "literal oestrogen nest" with wife Nicole Kidman and their two daughters, Sunday Rose, four, and Faith, two, helped him handle the on-set antics between his fellow judges.
When asked how he copes with Mariah and Nicki while on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, his Hollywood starlet wife quipped, "A four year old and a two year old and a wife, a lot of girls in our household."
Keith added, "A literal estrogen nest is where I live."
Kris Jenner's daytime talk show Kris will air this summer.
The showbiz matriarch - who has masterminded the reality TV careers of her entire family, most notably daughter Kim Kardashian - will present a one-hour show featuring celebrity guests and fashion, beauty and lifestyle discussions, after agreeing a deal with Twentieth Television.
"This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it's definitely a dream come true! I can't wait for this new adventure to begin," she said.
Twentieth Television believe Kris' experience as a manager to her celebrity daughters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner, will help her be a great TV host. "The latest adventures, successes and disappointments surrounding the extensive Kardashian and Jenner family fill entertainment magazines and create daily online headlines. [In the middle] of this fascinating empire is Kris Jenner - a dedicated mom and a successful business woman. Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted - all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host," said Stephen Brown, Twentieth's EVP of Development & Programming.
Lindsay Lohan has laughed off rumors she will appear on Celebrity Big Brother.
The 26-year-old actress has been the subject of speculation recently, with many claiming she would appear on the British reality show. The Liz & Dick star has dismissed the idea, claiming she wants to focus on breaking into musical theater.
"I'm busy acting... I'm a singer. I'd love to do a musical. Something like Mamma Mia!" she told Heat magazine.
Lindsay was tied to Celebrity Big Brother after she arrived in London - where the reality show is filmed - over New Year, but an appearance hasn't materialized since the new series was launched two weeks ago. It has since emerged that she was in the UK because she was invited to attend a Southeast Asian prince's New Year's Eve party - and she was reportedly paid $100,000.
Britney Spears has confirmed her X Factor departure. The "Toxic" singer quit her role as a mentor on the Fox show in order to focus on her music career and admitting watching the contestants perform every week helped her to make the decision to leave.
"I've made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens, but it's time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can't wait to get back out there and do what I love most," she explained in a statement.
Meanwhile, it has been claimed Britney, 31, is in "serious talks" for a residency in Las Vegas. According to gossip website TMZ, "Britney and her people are talking about establishing residency for the singer in Sin City and are also in talks with one of the hotels to do a big, nightly show. Negotiations are with one of the Caesars group properties, and they have been wooing her for awhile. There is a lot of interest in Britney's camp over a Vegas move, and a lot of interest on the Vegas side of headlining a show."
Nicki Minaj wants male contestants to flash her on American Idol. The fiery judge insists she will remember those who show off their bodies and was impressed when one eager contestant removed his shirt during the audition stage.
"[The best thing a contestant can do to impress me is] flash me. That would make me remember a person. One boy in particular took off his shirt and was trying to be all sexy," she said.
Nicki also credited her own dysfunctional childhood with giving her the drive to become a star. The "Starships" singer explained, "I dealt with a little bit of a dysfunctional household and my inspiration was if I can just make it out of this, I could help my family and that was my driving force and I've said it for my entire career, but it's the truth. Sometimes, if you attach your dreams to something bigger than you it's like it's impossible for you to ever stop, so my thing was always I've got to get my family out of this kind of life and at times when I thought about giving up, that's what kept me going."
American Idol premieres next week on Wednesday and Thursday at 8/7c on Fox.
Kanye West might force Kim Kardashian to quit reality TV.
The "Clique" singer - who recently announced his girlfriend of nine months is expecting their first child in June - is said to be uncomfortable about the idea of her documenting her pregnancy on her family's series Keeping Up With The Kardashians but is willing to go along with it for now.
A source close to the 35-year-old rapper told HollywoodLife.com, "You know Kanye is just rolling with the punches right now with everything. He not tripping - YET! All this TV is new to him and Kim is explaining to him that everything is going to be OK and she's encouraging him to just go with the fact that the pregnancy -- or at least part of it -- will be filmed. I know deep down, [Kanye] isn't trying to pimp out his baby like that. He and Kim got way more than enough money to take care of 100 kids if they want to have that many. But he know that when it comes to Kim and her family, especially that mother of hers, it's all business and that show is how they make their money. So he juggling all this [stuff] in his head right now, but he ain't all hyped about it yet because it hasn't gone down yet - the filming that is."
