Rosie O'Donnell has branded Lindsay Lohan's reality TV show "a tragedy - on every level."
The outspoken star is unimpressed with the Mean Girls actress's antics on her OWN docu-series, Lindsay, but hopes the troubled starlet will see the error of her ways by watching her behavior on the show. The 52-year-old comedienne and actress slammed the series on Twitter on Monday, tweeting, "The Lindsay show is a tragedy - on every level. I hope one day she gets sober for real and watches these episodes - n sees what we all do [sic]."
Johnny Depp hates reality shows.
The 50-year-old actor is terrified of the modern world's obsession with material goods and reality star icons, and believes the shallow craze will be the downfall of society in a few years' time. "It's really frightening. And when you see all this stuff that goes on in the commercials - the endless commercials - people yelling down your gob, 'Buy this, do this, this will save you, this will fix you.' Everything can be a reality show now. Imagine what's it going to be in 20 f***ing years, man," he mused to Interview magazine.
Johnny - who is engaged to Amber Heard and has children Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, with former partner Vanessa Paradis - also went on to apparently slam stars like the Kardashians and Paris Hilton by lamenting that talentless socialites have become idols to a whole generation thanks to the phenomenon that is reality TV. "People get famous now for I-don't-know-what. People have reality shows because they're a Hollywood socialite, and these things become very successful and they generate a s**tload of money for the company. And it's multiplying, to where you're literally looking into your next door neighbor's bathroom with reckless abandon. It is like watching a fire. You can't take your eyes off of it," The Rum Diary star added.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has landed a new reality show.
The former Jersey Shore star will be joined by members of his family in The Sorrentinos, an eight-episode program commissioned by TVGN, formerly the TV Guide Network, and is described as a "docu-comedy."
The show will feature Mike, his mother Linda and siblings Melissa, Frank and Marc and the reality star - who checked into rehab to be treated for an addiction to prescription drugs in 2012 - says it will focus mainly on his efforts to establish an ongoing TV career, as well as his attempts to stay clean.
"The reality of the situation is ... for the first time, fans and the general public, will be able to see and, well, meet Michael Sorrentino. This next chapter of my life is about sobriety and family, and I'm stoked to take people on this journey with us," Mike said.
NeNe Leakes will compete on Dancing With The Stars. The outspoken Real Housewives of Atlanta star is set to join the likes of Price Is Right host Drew Carey, former ice hockey player Sean Avery and Full House alumni Candace Cameron Bure on the 18th season of the popular ballroom dancing show.
The full line-up was officially unveiled on Good Morning America yesterday morning and features a heavy dose of athletes. Double-amputee snowboarding champion Amy Purdy, who will be partnered with professional dancer Derek Hough, long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad, and Olympic figure skaters Charlie White and Meryl Davis have all signed on to compete.
Lindsay 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.
CeeLo Green has quit the The Voice to host his own show.
The "Forget You" hitmaker has been a judge on the version of the singing contest on the first three series, before returning on the fifth series last year, but has now decided to step back to focus on other TV projects.
"I'm not coming back guys. I'm going to continue my relationship with NBC. I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I'm going to miss The Voice too. So I'm not coming back guys," he said, speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Shocked by his revelation, Ellen replied, "Oh, you're not coming back at all? I did not know that!"
CeeLo is hoping to take some time to focus on his music and is excited about the release of his next album Girl Power, which is due out between February and March.
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!"

Kim 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.
Bruce Jenner is eager to be a contestant on Dancing With the Stars.
The 64-year-old retired athlete, whose stepchildren Kim and Rob Kardashian have both previously competed on the reality series, is in talks to take part in the upcoming 18th season. "He's dying to do it. The show is close to locking him in," a source said.
Meanwhile, the Olympic gold medallist's sons Brandon and Brody Jenner are said to be very supportive of his recent decision to reduce the size of his Adam's apple. Bruce, who separated from his wife Kris Jenner in October after 22 years of marriage, reportedly underwent a "laryngeal shave" procedure in Beverly Hills on Sunday to soften the feature of his neck, which is typically done on patients who are in the first stage of gender reassignment.
"The boys don't think their father is trying to become a woman and simply laugh at rumors. They do believe that Bruce became more conscience of his physical appearance and how he looked after Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered. They blame their stepmother [Kris] for all of the plastic surgery he has had over the years. Kris always encouraged Bruce to have his face nipped and tucked. He has had plastic surgery to remove excess fat above his eyelids. The Adam's apple surgery is just following in that pattern," a source said.
Kris Jenner's chat show has been officially canceled.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is disappointed that her daytime talk show, Kris, has been axed after just one season even though she secured a rare interview with her future son-in-law Kanye West and debuted the first picture of the rapper and her daughter Kim Kardashians' baby North West on the series in August.
"Kris' will not be on the schedule for the 2014 syndication season," Fox said in a statement released yesterday.
But the US network hasn't ruled out working with Kris, 58, who split from her husband Bruce Jenner in November after 22 years of marriage, in the future. "However, the possibility for the talk show, or an additional project for Kris Jenner, for the 2015 season is being discussed and highly considered," the statement added.
