  • Miss Alabama Katherine Webb 'moving to NYC to pursue modelling career and may appear

    Former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb is moving to New York and may appear in an upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars, it emerged today. What should have been a mere 15 minutes of fame after ESPN commentator Brent Musburger momentarily fell in love with her as she watched her quarterback boyfriend play in the BSC Championships, has now turned into what could well be a promising career for the 23-year-old.

    After endless hype and a delayed premiere, Terra Nova's $20 million dollar pilot finally roared into the primetime race last night. Steven Spielberg's gorgeous, CGI series had a decent start, but couldn't beat out Two and a Half Men or Dancing with the Stars. While CBS ruled Monday night and ABC's Dancing with the Stars saw a ratings drop but stayed in second, Fox is calling Terra Nova's third place premiere a win. The action adventure series finally stomped onto screens Monday and managed to lure in around 9 million viewers with the promise of dinosaurs, time travel and family...

    Ok, I gotta admit, this really took me by surprise. I really didn't just fall of the turnip truck and know all too well that bigotry, stupidity and rank ignorance not only still exist in 21st century USA, but fester in every state of the union. But the reaction that ABC got when it announced that Chaz Bono would be among the celebrities on the new "Dancing With the Stars" season had my jaw dropping to the floor. Homophobia itself is ugly and uninformed, of course, but those who spew anti-gay epithets often do so because they believe sexual orientation...

    How long before the cries of “Free Bristol Palin!” begin? Margaret Cho, who briefly co-starred with Palin on this season’s “Dancing With the Stars,” blogged Monday that Bristol only did the show because Sarah Palin forced her to, part of a plan to get Americans to “fall in love with her again” in the runup to the 2012 election.

    What's with the recent trend of tagging articles with palin or sarahpalin that have nothing to do with Sarah Palin? If your article has nothing to do with Palin, please don't tag it as such. It's bad enough that journalists use her name to get hits to their articles or as a cheap source of writing material. We don't need that attitude here too. Just because people want to increase traffic to their posts, doesn't mean they should tag their posted articles with palin or sarahpalin. This just clutters the keyword/tagging system.

    Sarah Palin was not only playing the role of proud mama grizzly last night when she sat in the front row cheering on daughter Bristol Palin in the finale of 'Dancing With The Stars' -- she was also playing casting director, lobbying the show's producers to consider signing up her Tea Party pal Christine O'Donnell for next season. "Sarah is a genius at marketing herself and her message," an insider tells me. "She doesn't care about all the old rules about how political people are meant to behave and act. Sarah believes the best way is to go directly to...

    As America and Michigan prepares to spend time with family and friends over the four-day Thanksgiving holiday, it is more than tragic than during this week leading up to the holiday, there are millions of Americans who are whining and alarmed over the growing Dancing With The Stars’ success of Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin. Instead of thanksgiving there are those who are harboring terror and threats in their hearts against Bristol. With each passing week this good natured and extremely hardworking young woman danced her way into the hearts of Americans, in spite of liberal alarmists who blamed...

    Tonight is the final chance for the three remaining contestants on "Dancing With the Stars" to impress the viewers at home. As we've seen this season in particular, high scores from the judges may be nice. But, it's the viewers who matter because their votes can make an impact. Going into tonight's season finale are Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey & Bristol Palin. Getting to this point wasn't always a smooth trip. There were some tense moments at the production office for "Dancing With the Stars." ABC says a white powder in an envelope was delivered to the office this past...

    I imagine you have already heard that a man in Wisconsin shot his television set when Bristol Palin beat out R&B singer Brandy to achieve the finals of "Dancing With the Stars." I know that in real life he is a troubled human being with a history of bipolar disorder, but I think in the make-believe world of celebrity media, he speaks for all of us. Except, of course, for all those wonderful supporters of Sarah Palin who keep voting Bristol despite her mediocre dancing. I'm sure she's a perfectly appealing 20-year-old, but she can't dance very well, and she...

    In "defiance" of "skepticism" on the part of Dancing with the Stars judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli, Sarah Palin's daughter/single mother Bristol Palin is one of three dancers vying for the ultimate DWTS prize. Like Mom, Bristol ‘the pistol' sure has chutzpah. Unintimidated by pop stars or child stars, when asked to be part of the mirror globe trophy competition Bristol left fishing poles behind, packed the Pampers into her 1997 F-150, and drove non-stop from Alaska to L.A. Casting no aspersions on Bristol's competitors, Pistol Palin is the only contestant with zero experience wooing the...

The blog Jezebel had a post about it today, complete with quotes from conservative message boards about how Bristol's supporters were exploiting ABC's email voting system to cast multiple ballots for Sarah Palin's daughter. Jezebel quoted one site, FreeRepublic.com, that urged its members to "make liberal heads explode" by voting for Bristol, "even though she is not the best dancer."

    Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol won through to the final of hit US show "Dancing with the Stars", bouyed by public support in defiance of judges' skepticism about her dance floor talents. As her mother continues to shine in the political spotlight, the 20-year-old is enjoying the media limelight generated by her unexpected success on the hugely popular TV talent show. Palin was again ranked last by judges in the semi-final of the show, in which celebrities partner with professional dancers, but voting by viewers pushed her score with partner Mark Ballas up into third place.

Bristol supposedly commented on a comment from one of Willows classmate who posted on Facebook that Sarah Palins Alaska would fail. Willow then chimed in and called the guy a faggot and then went on a tirade back and forth as other people joined in the argument slandering Sarah and bringing up the Nailin Palin porn video and also calling Bristol fat.

She's been in the bottom two twice, but has yet to be eliminated.

    Dancing With the Stars week 5 performance show is Oct. 18, and it could mean that Bristol Palin is eliminated on Oct. 19. The past two weeks have seen her and dancing partner Mark Ballas consistently at the bottom of the weekly scoreboard. Both times Palin and Ballas have been just ahead of the lowest scoring couple, getting saved each week, despite being placed in jeopardy by the combination of judges' scores and audience home votes. Last week, Palin and Ballas were eighth place out of nine couples, just ahead of The Situation and Karina Smirnoff during week 4 of...

    Bristol Palin brought the A-game to the floor, and her supporter-in-chief to the audience for the second week of "Dancing with the Stars." The results were positively lethal. With Sarah Palin sitting in the front row with adorable daughter Piper, it was the most effective P.R. offensive a dance show/popularity contestant you could ever ask for. And Bristol finished up the job with her professional dance partner Mark Ballas, performing an impressive quickstep dance to the tune of "You Can't Hurry Love." Despite a smattering of boos, the crowd, the judges and no doubt the home audience mostly ate it...

    All the clues suggest Sarah Palin is right in the mix for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. Consider the niche she’s carved since resigning as Alaska governor last year. A best-selling memoir, with another book in the pipeline. Keynote speaker at the National Tea Party Convention. Frenzied supporters attaching near biblical significance to every Facebook post or Tweet. And a litany of successful primary endorsements – including just this week, with obscure Alaska Senate contender Joe Miller appearing, in what would be a stunning upset, to have tipped out sitting senator (and Palin arch-nemesis) Lisa Murkowski.Just one problem: the family....
