Wendy Williams
Wendy Williams sympathizes with Lamar Odom and his problems with substance abuse.

The NBA star was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early Friday morning during a traffic stop in California. He was booked on charges of DUI.

The talk show host tweeted: "I met @RealLamarOdom one time, when my husband and I were shopping in LA. He was in the store too."

"After he left, he called in his credit card to pay for our stuff. I only know his kindness and share his struggle w/substance abuse. My thoughts r with u both Lamar & @KhloeKardashian. xo ww."

Wendy Williams Gets Naked For PETA

December 1st, 2012 2:00pm EST
Wendy Williams
Talk show host Wendy Williams is the latest celebrity to bare all for a cause. Earlier this week the star (fully clothed) unveiled her "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaign in Times Square in New York City.

Williams is a convert - she used to wear real fur made from foxes and minks but stopped doing so after People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) convinced her otherwise.

The black beauty also came up with a great idea for people who want to stop wearing their fur coats: donate them to PETA so they can distribute them to those who are homeless due to Hurricane Sandy.

tara REid
Tara Reid has no interest in talking about her shortlived romance and "wedding" to Zack Kehayov, insisting only that she is now "single and available."

The star appeared to exchanged vows with her boyfriend of two months last August while on vacation on the Greek island of Santorini, but she later admitted the union "wasn't legal", adding, "We were never really married."

Now Reid admits the romance is no more and she just wants to leave it firmly in her past.

When quizzed about the Greek nuptials while promoting the new "American Pie" sequel on The Wendy Williams Show on Friday, she said...

Lindsay Lohan's Mom: 'The Paparazzi Is Just Stalking Her Right Now'

Dina Lohan
Lindsay Lohan's mother Dina has advised the actress to stay at home and "live in a bubble" to avoid getting into trouble as she nears the end of her probation.

The Mean Girls star has been on her best behavior in recent months as she fulfills her community service hours and attends therapy sessions relating to her 2011 conviction for a probation violation.

Her final progress hearing is set for next Thursday and Lohan is determined to reach the date without further controversy following allegations she was involved in a hit-and-run incident outside a Hollywood nightclub last week.

Brandy Says She Wants To Reconcile With Kim Kardashian

Brandy
Brandy has reached out to Kim Kardashian in an effort to end their long-running feud, insisting, "I really miss my friendship with Kim."

The socialite once worked as a stylist for Brandy's family but the pair fell out after the infamous sex tape Kardashian filmed with the R&B singer's brother Ray J leaked in 2007.

They became even further estranged when Brandy's mom Sonja Norwood sued Kardashian in 2008, accusing her of committing credit card fraud when she was employed as their personal shopper.

Brandy now wants to patch up their relationship and is adamant reports she wanted Kardashi...

'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns Hines Ward MVP Of The Ballroom

May 25th, 2011 8:09am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
Us audience members were officially cut off Tuesday morning. No more voting for "Dancing With The Stars." But the judges still had another set of scores to give on Tuesday’s finale, and we got three hours of show to sit through. Three hours. They had to make up for Monday’s show only being an hour long, I guess.

Luckily the first hour was a repeat, so I don’t have to write five million extra words for a third of the show. Then the opening sequence and voice over for the real show kicked in, and were especially dramatic. That is saying a lot when talking about this show. I a...

Toni Braxton Blames Bankruptcy On Lupus

April 11th, 2011 10:05pm EDT
Toni Braxton
R&B singer Toni Braxton had no choice but to file for bankruptcy because she refused to tell debt collectors she had lupus.

The singer's financial troubles first came to light in October when she admitted to owing between $10 million and $50 million in unpaid debts after canceling a series of Las Vegas shows due to heart problems.

However Braxton's woes grew more and more complicated after attempts to strike a deal with creditors failed because she didn't want to reveal she was struggling with a debilitating disorder.

During an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, she says, "...

Here's one for the etiquette police, and a first for Dancing With the Stars: Talk show host Wendy Williams — the second star this season to be told that her Dancing days are over — decided to skip the traditional "last dance" with her pro partner, Tony Dovolani. "I want to thank the judges, and I want to thank you also, Tony, for teaching me how to dance," said Williams upon her dismissal....

'Dancing With The Stars' Review: Week Three Elimination... Wendy Williams

April 6th, 2011 9:18am EDT
DANCING WITH THE STARS THE RESULTS SHOW
Monday night we laughed and cried, and oohed and aahed, among other cliche reactions, over the emotional stories our stars told with their dances. We collectively cringed over Kirstie and Maks’ fall, then talked about it all day long. We discussed how the scores have been all over the place this season... and then talked about Kirstie and Maks some more.

Look, you fall down on ‘Dancing’, and you’re going to have to talk about it and hear about it until you have a nervous breakdown. It’s just the way it is.

Here’s a run down of where we stood after Monday’s performances:

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Three Performances Get Emotional

April 5th, 2011 9:20am EDT
CHRIS JERICHO CHERYL BURKE
With Mike and Lacey gone, we now have ten stars standing, some good, some bad, some ridiculous. Some of them are all of those things at the same time, and this week they get to tell us their personal stories. Each star picked a song that they had an emotional connection to, and had to express it in their dance.

It wasn’t as silly as I thought it was going to be.

The outcomes were a little surprising, most especially because they gave us a brand new pecking order at the end of the night. Again. This season is shaping up to be unpredictable. Don’t these people realize that they’re toyi...

Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer
It's inevitable. One by one, all the contestants on 'Dancing With The Stars' will go home until there is only one left standing. It's no fun for anyone, but for the very first to go, it downright stinks.

Of course, before we kick someone off the dance floor crying (maybe), the first hour of 'Dancing' is the recap hour. I actually really like to rewatch the dances without all the extraneous stuff. And I have to admit that on second watch, yes, I was a little harsh in my criticism of Petra this week. Did I think she had any better a chance going into the elimination show after a rewatch...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Performances Review

March 29th, 2011 8:47am EDT
Romeo and Chelsie Hightower
It's week two of 'Dancing With The Stars', and expectations are high. For some. Ralph Macchio and Kirstie Alley came out on fire last week, and we wanted to see if they can keep up the high standard. Was it luck? A product of the opening night high? I was especially interested in seeing Kirstie, considering I expected utter clumsiness last week. She shocked a lot of people. Can she do it again?

The rest of our stars are... not so heavily anticipated. In fact, Mike Catherwood couldn't get worse. Well, I shouldn't say that. He could fall down this week, or have a nervous bre...

On the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars, we were treated to a handful of surprises. Karate Kid Ralph Macchio started at the top of the competition, and right behind him was... Kirstie Alley!

Meanwhile, fan favorites Kendra Wilkinson and Wendy Williams were on the bottom half - lucky for them, radio personality Mike Catherwood had the worst performance of the night. But let's start at the top:

Ralph Macchio stunned the judges with his foxtrot with partner Karina Smirnoff, set to "Kick in the Head." Judge Len Goodman said the obvious: "You've got great potential... best foxtrot of ...

Last week’s hometown visits helped “The Bachelor” eliminate professional embalmer and future head of the funeral home, Shawntel N. Did anyone ever doubt that Brad would follow in the footsteps of previous “Bachelor (ette) s” (Jason Meznick and Ali Fedotowsky) who quickly ended their relationship with a contestant whose hometown visit included a brush with death (pet cemetery and taxidermy)? Cool as Shawntel was, she wasn’t making it out of the subsequent rose ceremony alive.

This week was a bit trickier to determine. We’ve seen Brad have his ups and downs with all three potential brides-t...

Aretha Franklin is set to open up about the health troubles that led to her hospitalization in an exclusive interview with TV presenter Wendy Williams.

Jordin Sparks is nursing a bruised leg after a terrifying run-in with a pit-bull last weekend, when an unleashed dog locked its jaw around her limb.

The former American Idol winner took her own pet pooch to a New York City park on Sunday, where it could play with other dogs - but an untrained pit ruined the outing when it ran up to Sparks and bit her.

Showing off a marking on her left leg during an appearance on Wendy Williams' talk show on Monday, she explained, "You see this bruise right here? A New York experience. I took my dog to the dog park and I got bit by a pitbull. Yesterday!"...

Troubled singer Fantasia Barrino broke down in tears on TV on Friday when she was quizzed by chat show host Wendy Williams about her recent suicide attempt.

Barrino was taken to hospital last month after overdosing on sleeping pills and aspirin and she has since revealed the attempt was no accident - she wanted to die.

The drama prompted hardcore gossip queen Williams to ask the former American Idol star if she thought about her daughter before deciding to take her life.

The pertinent question prompted her chat show guest to burst into tears.
