Kim Kardashian might let her and Kanye West's baby appear on her reality TV show in the future.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star - who is set to give birth to the couple's first child in early July - loves seeing her sister Kourtney's children, Mason, three, and Penelope, nine-months, on the show and says her half-sisters, Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 15, have shown her that growing up on reality TV can have a positive impact. Asked whether their baby will appear on her E! reality show, the 32-year-old beauty told The Times, "I don't think so. Not as of right now. I love and enjoy seeing Mason and Penelope on the show. But Scott and Kourtney are in the same business of reality television, so it works for them. [Kendall and Kylie] have grown into these amazing young women who are very grounded and smart. It has turned out to be a positive, but I think it could have been a negative. It gives me great hope, even for Mason and Penelope..."
Jennifer Love-Hewitt is in the running to be a judge on X Factor.
The 34-year-old actress - who hit the charts in 2002 with her single "BareNaked" - is rumored to be joining Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato on the third season of the pop star search show as a replacement for the departed L.A. Reid and Britney Spears.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, a source said, "Simon is very interested [in Jennifer]." Cowell, 53, has two positions up for grabs on the judging panel and is believed to be chatting to several celebrities about the roles, although Hewitt is believed to be one of the favorites along with Kelly Rowland - who judged one series of the UK version of The X Factor. "Simon has always remained a fan of Kelly's and she's most definitely in the mix to join the judging panel on X Factor," a source said previously.
A representative for The X Factor has described the rumors as "pure speculation," though none have yet been denied.
Hewitt has released four albums in her career but turned her back on music in 2004. However, this year she recorded a cover of "I'm a Woman" to promote the second season of her TV show The Client List.
American Idol producers secretly plotted to replace Mariah Carey with Jennifer Lopez. Bosses were keen to see the return of "On the Floor" singer Jennifer midway through the show's current season but, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter, once they were threatened with legal action by Mariah's team they backed off.
The insiders added a search has already begun to replace Mariah, Nicki Minaj and possibly even the entire judge's panel - which also includes Randy Jackson and Keith Urban - for the next season.
Mariah was a huge signing for the show, but has proved less popular with viewers on the show than Jennifer, who appeared in the previous two seasons, was. Mariah's comments and criticism have been criticized as passive and disengaged, and she has been overshadowed by Nicki on the show.
However, another source says research has shown Nicki's performance on the show has not been as popular as expected, adding, "The core viewer is a Midwestern, Southern, older woman who is threatened by Nicki's aggressiveness."
LeAnn Rimes wants to star in a sitcom. The 30-year-old singer is reportedly shopping around a comedy series based on her real life and hopes to star in the show alongside her actor husband of two years Eddie Cibrian, 39.
"[They] have been shopping around a scripted comedy based on their lives together. They would play versions of themselves, kind of like on Curb Your Enthusiasm," a source said.
The insider also revealed that the couple plan to include a "crazy ex-wife" in the show that will be inspired by Eddie's ex-wife Brandi Glanville, 40, who has had numerous public spats with LeAnn.
But LeAnn and Eddie have decided not to feature his sons with Brandi, Mason, nine, and Jake, six, on the show. "Mason and Jake are not involved. If kids end up being on it, they would be played by actors -- not Eddie's children," the insider added.
Christopher Abbott has quit Girls after clashing with Lena Dunham. The actor - who played Charlie in the HBO show - has left after reportedly falling out with the creator as they began work on season three.
"They've just started work on season three, and Chris is at odds with Lena. He didn't like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map," a source told Page Six.
However, Christopher's representative insists he left Girls in order to focus on "other projects." The representative said, "[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd [Apatow], and the entire Girls cast and crew, but right now he's working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show."
Lena recently revealed she is excited about season three and wants to extend its run from 10 to 12 episodes. "We're starting season three at the end of March. I'm so excited. I would love that [to have 12 episodes instead of 10] I think that a little more would be just a little more storytelling real estate, and it would be amazing. But you know, so I shoot four-and-a-half months out of the year, then I'm editing, then I'm doing press, then I'm writing, then I'm back."
Brooke Shields is in talks to join The View.
The 47-year-old Blue Lagoon actress has reportedly been approached by ABC to join the US morning chat show's panel after current host Joy Behar recently announced she is leaving the popular series after 16 seasons and amid rumors Elizabeth Hasselbeck's contract has not been renewed.
According to gossip website showbiz411.com, Barbara Walters, who is at the helm of the series, thinks that Brooke would be a great addition and is eager for her to take over one of the vacant spots. Sources said Barbara really wants her because the actress has two children, is a Princeton graduate and "very articulate," but also has great connections in Hollywood.
The brunette beauty, who previously acted as a guest host, is said to be in final negotiations to join the show next season alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, and Barbara.
Cheryl Cole could be offered a huge deal to return to The X Factor.
The 29-year-old pop star was sacked during the show's first series in 2011 before suing Simon Cowell's talent show for $2.3 million, but it's now being reported she could be offered a big contract to tempt a return for the former judge.
"This is a massive move from Simon. He's going right out there and saying that he made a mistake in sacking her. After she was shunted off the show, TV critics in the US said in reviews that she was the best thing about the program - and it seems for once that Simon was wrong. Over the past two seasons, the X Factor hasn't performed as Simon would have wanted - now it looks like Cheryl will be the savior," a source said.
The insider speculates the Girls Aloud singer might not accept the deal after the added "humiliation" of being replaced by Nicole Scherzinger on the UK version of the show.
Brody Jenner is set to join Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The 29-year-old star will appear become a permanent fixture on his father Bruce Jenner's E! reality TV show, which also features Brody's step-mother Kris Jenner, her children from her first marriage to Robert Kardashian and her two daughters with Bruce.
"'Brody Jenner is going to be a full-time cast member on the next season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians," a source said.
Brody, 29, has previously made guest appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, appeared with his brother Brandon in The Princes of Malibu and was featured on The Hills while dating its star Lauren Conrad.
Brody's decision to take on a more permanent role comes as Kim Kardashian, 32, recently admitted living out the breakdown of her marriage to Kris Humphries has left her ready to quit the show.
Brandi Glanville wants LeAnn Rimes to join the cast of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
While the pair have been involved in a public and bitter feud over LeAnn's current and Brandi's former husband Eddie Cibrian, Brandi, 40, wants LeAnn to join the reality series in order to make her look better.
"Brandi is a very smart cookie and thinks that if LeAnn were to join the cast, the audience would hate her even more. Brandi loves playing the victim and having LeAnn on the show would allow her to continue in that role as the long-suffering, spurned ex-wife," a source said.
Mel B is replacing Sharon Osbourne on America's Got Talent.
The 37-year-old former Spice Girl - who previously worked on Australian X Factor - has reportedly signed a deal to join the judging panel for the NBC ahead of the start of its auditions in Los Angeles next month, after winning over the show's boss Simon Cowell.
"Simon loves trying people out on his shows, Mel's already been a judge on X Factor Australia and it's too far for her to keep taking the kids. She did want to do X Factor UK, but Simon really wanted her to do America's Got Talent. She's outspoken and never afraid to speak her mind, she makes for good TV. NBC execs will be watching through their eyes - let's hope they won't be using the delay button on live TV," a source said.
The mother-of-three is expected to join Howard Stern and Howie Mandel on the live TV show.
