20 Extremely Religious Celebrities

March 30th, 2014 5:00pm EDT
Candace Cameron Bure
Candace Cameron Bure of "Full House" fame and her brother Kirk Cameron ("Growing Pains") are very religious. As Kirk became an outspoken Christian evangelist and actor, Cameron also became more public with her faith in the late 1990s, writing for Christian websites, speaking at churches, and endorsing Christian organizations, businesses and charities.

And the actress says her belief in Christianity helped her battle bulimia.

She told Yahoo! in December 2013, "I turned to food for comfort and had to find a different source, 'cause clearly it wasn't a healthy way to deal with things. So tha...

David Archuleta
Singer David Archuleta missed his flight home to Utah on Thursday after a snowstorm left him grounded in Colorado.

The former American Idol star played the final date on his My Kind of Christmas Tour in Beaver Creek on Wednesday night - his last live performance for at least two years after announcing plans to put his career on hold to serve as a Mormon missionary.

But his trip home to Utah didn't go as smoothly as planned due to severe weather conditions.

In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Stuck in the mountains on the bus because of a snowstorm. Missed my flight,...

David Archuleta
Singer David Archuleta is putting his music career on hold to serve as a Mormon missionary.

The American Idol star and Utah native is preparing to go off the grid for two years in a bid to reconnect with his faith and carry out his religious duty as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

It is not yet known where the 20 year old will be called to serve his mission, but he'll be required to adhere to a strict set of rules and refrain from contacting his family - except for twice-yearly phone calls.

'American Idol' Recap: Was This The Most Boring Finale Ever?

May 25th, 2011 9:35am EDT
Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery
The most boring finalists ever. That seemed to be the conventional wisdom going into the evening. That, despite a strong start, this season of ‘Idol’ was destined to fall into oblivion with two dull finalists that wouldn’t be able to deliver the finale this Renaissance season deserved.

Yes, that might be true. It may have been more interesting to see James square off against Pia or Jacob take on Haley, but that doesn’t necessarily mean this is the most boring collection of contestants ever, does it?

Here’s a ranking of finale pairings from least boring to most boring:

David Archuleta
Former "American Idol" star David Archuleta has been dropped by his record label.

The Idol season 7 runner-up is no longer tied to Jive Records, a label spokesperson has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Archuleta's 2010 album "The Other Side of Down" failed to make the top 10 in America - and has sold only 67,000 copies.

His self-titled 2008 debut sold an impressive 765,000 copies.

Crystal Bowersox
"American Idol" runner-up Crystal Bowersox is engaged to marry her new boyfriend just months after her former partner dumped her on the eve of the talent show finale.

The singer finished second to Lee Dewyze in May and revealed shortly afterwards that her partner Tony Kusian ended their relationship just hours before she was due to take the stage.

Bowersox has now put the heartbreak behind her by announcing her engagement to her new love, musician Brian Walker.

And the new couple can't wait to exchange vows - they are planning to marry as early as next month, according to People.com.

A hectic touring schedule didn’t stop the Jonas Brothers from making an appearance at Arthur Ashe Kids Day in Flushing, New York on August 28th. It’s the third time that the superstar siblings have participated in the all-day event , and judging by fans’ reactions they have not worn out their welcome.

To kick off the 2010 US Open, the Jonas Brothers performed a few of their latest tunes, getting the crowd of tweens and kids on their feet and singing along. They were joined by Camp Rock 2 co-star, tour mate, and in Joe Jonas’ case ex-girlfriend, Demi Lovato, another fan favorite with the Ar...

Katie Price Uses Her Body To Sell Her New Boob - Er, Book (With Video)

July 29th, 2010 9:50am EDT
Katie Price
Katie Price looked like a wax figure while promoting her new novel "Paradise" in London on Wednesday. We're guessing the book is fiction, like her body. She's been nipped and tucked so much we can't tell where the real starts and the fake ends.

Oh, and did we mention anyone can write a book these days? And who does a book launch in a black leotard with the novel's title splashed across their heaving bosom?

The model recently courted controversy by saying children of divorced parents are "lucky." After all, her mom and dad split when she was little - and she turned out fabulous, right?

2010 has been a big year so far for celebrity authors. Big-screen actors, reality TV stars, musicians and other celebs have been pimping their self-help tomes, novels, and children's books.

Most recently, "Real Housewives" star Bethenny Frankel released "Skinnygirl Dish: Easy Recipes For Your Naturally Thin Life," Hugh Hefner's ex Kendra Wilkinson publicized "Sliding Into Home" and "American Idol" runner-up David Archuleta pimped "Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song and the Power of Perseverance."

'American Idol' Grand Finale Mega-Diary 2010

May 27th, 2010 9:14am EDT
Lee Dewyze
It’s mega-diary time once again, kids. A time to give the blow-by-blow, the play-by-play of the most important events in pop culture.

The only question is whether or not this is the last time the “American Idol” finale warrants such treatment. The mega-diary is reserved for TV events like The Oscars and The Emmys (and by all rights The Super Bowl if lack of sobriety didn’t prevent cataloging that evening), but I’m not sure how much longer “Idol” is going to fit.

With Simon’s departure and dwindling ratings, this night next year could be on a part with the season finale of “Survivor” or ...

American Idol Lee DeWyze
The ninth season has officially come to a close, with Lee DeWyze taking home the title of the next "American Idol."

It was only the second time in the show's history where neither of the final two contestants - DeWyze and runner up Crystal Bowersox - had ever finished in the bottom two or bottom three with viewer votes. The other two to accomplish the feat were Season 7 winner David Cook and runner up David Archuleta. Former winners Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks and Cook never landed in the bottom three with viewer votes either.

The Ten Greatest Of The Decade: TV Shows

December 14th, 2009 9:30am EST
Best TV Of The Decade
As the decade reaches its conclusion, you'll undoubtedly come across many lists. Lists that purport to tell you the best, the top, the cream of the decade as they relate to pop culture. You're also certain to come across many lists that claim to rank the "greatest" of the ten year period from 2000-2009. But what does that really mean?

"Greatest" should be something entirely different from what we usually associate with these lists. Mostly, these lists claim to rank the best - something that is only truly possible were a listmaker to, say, see every single movie in a given decade. If...

Spotlight: Celebrities On Home Shopping Network

August 26th, 2009 9:56am EDT
Suzanne Somers
Launched in 1982 in Florida by Lowell 'Bud' Paxson and Roy Speer, the Home Shopping Network (HSN) pioneered the concept of people being able to shop in their skivvies from the comfort of their couches. This shop-at-home brain child first came to Paxson in 1977 while he was managing a radio station and a liquidity problem arose with one of his advertisers, which resulted in the company being paid in electric can openers.

Since the kitchen appliance bartering system isn't always the most gainful way to run a business, the radio station was left with a significant amount of fund-raising to...

An Open Letter To Paul Abdul: Leaving 'Idol' Is A Bad Idea

Dear Paula Abdul,

I am writing on behalf of the Shelley Longs, Geri Halliwells, Wayne Rogers and Sherry Stringfields of the world when I give you three simple words of advice regarding your decision to leave American Idol: Don't do it.

I'm not really sure why you'd need me to tell you this, but based on the rumors flying across the Internet and the statements of your own manager, you're really thinking about leaving the most successful television series of the decade over some sort of personal insult. Or is it money? Nobody can really be sure what's going through your pill-filled head...

Miley Cyrus Misses Out On Huge 'Bolt' Payday

July 13th, 2009 10:26pm EDT
Miley Cyrus Missed Out On
Teen superstar Miley Cyrus had the chance to make a lot more than the $10,000 a day paycheck she took in while making last year's Disney hit Bolt.

According to TMZ, Miley's contract for the film gave her the opportunity to make another $175,000 if the movie grossed $125 million or more in the U.S.; but, unfortunately for the star the film only grossed $114 million.

Further incentives reportedly would have paid out even more for every additional $25 million over that mark.

Miley recently released a third soundtrack from her hit Disney show, "Hannah Montana 3 - Songs From The Hit TV ...

The Disney singer and actress Demi Lovato will be hitting the road this summer with American Idol season 7 runner up David Archuleta. Fans should plan on hearing more music and less talk on this tour.

Kris Allen Wins 'American Idol'!

May 20th, 2009 10:58pm EDT
American Idol
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kris Allen's smooth vocals and boy-next-door image propelled him to "American Idol" victory Wednesday, turning the theatrical powerhouse Adam Lambert into the most unlikely of also-rans.

"I'm sorry, I don't even know what to feel right now. This is crazy," said a stunned Allen, 23, of Conway, Ark.

As host Ryan Seacrest said in announcing the result of the viewer vote, "The underdog, the dark horse, comes back and wins the nation over."

Lambert's commanding vocal range and stage presence — and the judges' adoration of him — at times turned "Idol" into "The A...

Two More Out On 'American Idol': See The Power Rankings

April 23rd, 2009 9:34am EDT
American Idol
Last night, "American Idol" morphed into a classic variety show celebrating Disco while Anoop and Lil became history.

The show opened with a very interesting look at a different Paula Abdul. She's long played the show's doped-up clown. It was nearly jarring to see her barking at the kids and taking her work so seriously, and it actually paid off. This was one of the best group numbers from a visual standpoint the show has ever done. True choreography that nearly exhausted the Idols by song's end. We know it wasn't the singing that left them breathless - lip-synching has never been...

Ashley Tisdale has just released her brand new single "It's Alright, It's OK!" The track premiered Tuesday morning live with Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM. Co-written by Swedish production team Twin, the song is a spunky break-up anthem about being single and in control of your life for the first time.

"I love break-up songs," Tisdale says. "Everyone can relate to those moments when you need to vent your frustration about a previous relationship. 'It's Alright, It's OK' is about how you need to stand up for yourself and not let someone walk all over you; it's a message I wanted to get acr...

'Idol' Wannabe Alexis Gets The Boot Following An Ordinary, Forgettable Performance

Ryan Seacrest said the results would surprise us. I guess he doesn't read this column. Last night was actually kind of big as far as the early results shows go since it determined the spots for the summer American Idol nationwide concert tour, so the pressure was on with each trip down the rows of seated hopefuls in a way we won't see on the next few shows. This added to the tension, but not enough to cover up the fact that this was yet another one-hour results show with another lame musical number, lame Ford commercial and lame musical guest.

There were some nice new touches. It wa...
