Yesterday, Julianne Hough proved not only can a leather top make you look incredibly cool, but it’s also a great option for … read more

If you have a big family or a big friend group, the holidays can be a stressful time in the gift-giving department. Why is it so hard to pick the perfect gift? For starters, you have to buy something for each and every person in your life (right off the bat, your bank account’s hurting). Then on top of that what you decide to give them needs to be fun yet purposeful, thoughtful yet amusing, chic yet practical—the list goes on. Unless the receiver is the best actress in the world, you know the … read more

You can’t stop the beat, but you can stop some viewers from tuning in it seems. Hairspray Live had an initial audience of 8.9 million viewers and a 2.3 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic. This is down from The Wiz Live, NBC’s last live musical offering. The broadcast aired from 8-10:54 p.m., so adjustments are expected to be made in total live viewership.
However, NBC is touting Hairspray Live beat out Empire, Fox’s ratings powerhouse, in total viewers.
The live musical starred the likes of … read more

Derek Hough has a five-year plan. The Dancing With the Stars pro, 31, admitted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, November 30, that he’s hoping to settle down in the very near future.  “I’m kind of in a place now in my life, kind of a transition,” Hough told the talk show host, 58. “Yeah, I see myself married with kids within the next five years.” The Hairspray Live star might still have marriage on the brain since serving as best man at DWTS costar Mark Ballas’ wedding to BC Jean … read more

Nerves of steel! Looks like Mark Ballas didn’t have any wedding day jitters, because just moments before he walked down the aisle, he was doing the mannequin challenge with his groomsmen.
The Dancing With the Stars pro tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, BC Jean, on Friday, November 25, but he certainly wasn’t sweating about saying “I do.” Ballas posted an Instagram video of the group, including Derek Hough, suited and booted in the moments before his nuptials. “Meanwhile in the groomsmen … read more

He and the singer tied the knot at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California Friday in front of family and friends, including many of his colleagues.

Laurie Hernandez has won the Dancing with the Stars Season 23 Mirror Ball Trophy. Obviously.
We could have tried to play this off as a suspenseful season finale, but I mean… come on.
The girl had it in the bag since the get go. Yes, I loved me some Terra Jolé this season. She was eliminated too soon! James Hinchcliffe’s freestyle last night gave me way too many feels. And Calvin Johnson constantly surprised me.
But Hernandez just had gold written all over her. I mean, it doesn’t hurt that she … read more

Gigi Hadid apologized for doing an impression of Melania Trump during the 2016 American Music Awards. Hadid took to Twitter to pen a handwritten apology for her impression of the soon-to-be First Lady during her opening monologue.

The American Music Awards were held last night and I do not blame you if you forgot about them or remembered and still didn’t watch. On my Twitter feed last night, most people were talking about Westworld and Poldark, although I follow some weird people. Anyway, the AMAs did their thing and you can see the list of winners here. Drake won, 21 Pilots won, you get the idea. I knew ahead of time that Gigi Hadid was going to co-host and I was not looking forward to it. And all of my expectations were … read more

James Hinchcliffe has been heralded as the best celebrity male dancer on Dancing With the Stars…but somebody is taking issue with that. And that somebody is fellow IndyCar driver and Dancing With the Stars season five winner Helio Castroneves.

Long before he was known as Drake, he was Aubrey Graham, a young actor from Toronto starring on a teen soap called Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Never one to forget his roots in the 6 — and at Degrassi High, apparently — on Sunday night (November 20), the rapper joined former Degrassi co-star Nina Dobrev on stage at the 2016 American Music Awards.
