Jack Osbourne, Snooki and Amber Riley are among the celebrities competing on the next season of Dancing with the Stars.
The trio will join nine other famous personalities on Season 17 of the ballroom dancing competition, which is judged by Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli. Jack - who suffers from the nerve disorder multiple sclerosis and is the son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne - has been partnered with Cheryl Burke, Jersey Shore star Snooki, who has a 12-month-old son, Lorenzo, with her fiance Jionni LaValle, will dance with Sasha Farber, while Glee actress Amber will foxtrot with Derek Hough.
Other notable names from the line-up include Showgirls actress Elizabeth Berkley, singer Christina Milian, High School Musical actor Corbin Bleu and King of Queens star Leah Remini.
Season 17 will kick off with a two-hour episode on Monday, September 16 on ABC.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has landed his own reality show. The Jersey Shore star has already begun filming scenes for his spin-off series, which will focus on the party animal's family life and his wild antics in the New Jersey suburbs.
TMZ is reporting Mike has rented a house during production which is right next door to the pad where his former co-stars' Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni Farley filmed their own spin-off, Snooki & JWoww.
Fans of Jersey Shore are already familiar with Mike's younger sister Melissa, who memorably enjoyed a flirtation with housemate Vinny Guadagnino, and it is thought his older brothers Frank and Marc could also make an appearance.
Mike - who appeared on British reality show Celebrity Big Brother in 2012 - checked into rehab for an addiction to prescription pain killers last year and has been on a mission to turn his life around and stay sober ever since.
Jersey Shore has been axed. MTV confirmed the forthcoming sixth season of the reality TV show - which will premiere in October - will be its final season, but the network is to commemorate the end of the program with a one-hour special entitled "Gym, Tan, Look Back," on September 6. The episode will feature interviews with the Jersey Shore cast and a sneak peek of the sixth season, plus there will be a look back at some of the show's highlights since it began in December 2009.
The show has inspired a number of spin-offs including Geordie Shore - the English version of the program, which takes place in Newcastle, north east England - and Jersey Shore stars Snooki and Jenni "JWoww" Farley have gone on to create their own reality show, Snooki & JWoww.
Snooki has moved out of the Jersey Shore house because she doesn't want to be surrounded by parties.
The pregnant star - who is engaged to Jionni LaValle - is living in an adjacent house as she was worried about what people would think of her if she stayed, but show chiefs believe her change of address will provide new themes for the program to explore.
"It's not a prison. I know she's concerned about the perception of her being a pregnant woman in a party house. I think that's a common experience among a group of friends when somebody gets pregnant. This is an opportunity to see how she deals with it and how the rest of the house deals with it. The show has always been about following what's really happening in their lives," Chris Linn, MTV's executive Vice President of programming and head of production, told Entertainment Weekly.
However, he reassured that fans shouldn't worry about Snooki losing her humor now she is readying for a more sensible path in her life.
Pia Toscano was so overwhelmed by her ninth-place American Idol elimination, she had to be led off stage by a medic. She’s feeling much better now… but, we can’t say the same for the celebs who have been following her on Twitter. Her early exit has sparked outrage from some of the most surprising sources.
“Don’t have an IDOL habit, but how could the USA vote Pia off?” Tom Hanks tweeted. “I may be done for the season! HANX”
“Are you watching Idol? I am shocked and so sad,” said one-season judge Ellen DeGeneres.

Looks like that 15 minutes is going to stretch to 30 after all. MTV is moving forward with two new spin-offs from their popular reality series Jersey Shore, and that means Snooki is going to be on TV for awhile longer.
Nicole Polizzi (Snooki) and Jenni Farley (JWoww) will co-star in their own series, while Paul Delvecchio (Pauly D) will headline a series of his own. Both new shows will debut in 2012... ironically, the same year the Mayans predicted the world would end.
Both projects have been ordered to produce 12 episodes and neither is set in the Jersey Shore. Pauly D will take his act on the road “as one of the country’s most in-demand DJs,” according to a press release from MTV. He will “chase his dream with the help of the best friends he grew up with in Rhode Island by his side.” Snooki and JWoww will “deal with life and love when the vacation is over.”

Snooki recently appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to read one of the host’s Top 10 lists.
The topic on deck? Her new book, of course.
At least with the power of Letterman’s writers behind her, the Snooks is actually funny. Check out the video to hear the list.

Viewers might have been confused on New Year’s Eve, watching the festivities as recorded by MTV.
Snooki was present in Time Square, along with her fellow Jersey Shore cast members … but wasn’t she supposed to be in New Jersey? The reality star’s ball drop did go on the air as planned -- because it was recorded the night before.
Snooki’s ball was removed from Time Square after officials decided that only one ball would be dropping in New York’s famous block. Instead, the Snooks was dropped in her own hometown of Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

There is only one New Year’s Eve ball that falls in Times Square -- and the city of New York is going to keep it that way.
The official ball drop will be officiated by Mayor Bloomberg and Dick Clark, a staple of the annual event.
MTV announced recently that Snooki, of Jersey Shore fame, would be dropping from a ball during their separate celebration, but the city wouldn’t have it.
Instead, Snooki has been moved, appropriately, to New Jersey. The ball arrived on scene early on Wednesday, with a large “Snooki” spelled out in lights affixed to it.
Who knows? Maybe New Jersey just started their own New Year’s Eve tradition.

|South Park||Wed 10pm / 9c|
|Kyley-B vs. Snooki|
South Park typically pulled no punches Wednesday night when mocking reality TV shows Jersey Shore and the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Now, some of the targets of the jokes have responded to seeing themselves immortalized in animation.
Former Housewives cast member Danielle Staub managed to take it all in stride. “I was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t just me being made fun of for a change,” she laughed. Staub said she was “honored to be mocked” by South Park, adding “Poor Snooki though! I got off easy compared to her!”
