Spotlight On Hillbilly Celebrities

October 13th, 2009 9:48am EDT
Hillbilly celebs
A hillbilly celeb is like a young NBA player who came from nothing. Before they were popular they would eat at McDonald's, belch and swear in public, and do whatever they wanted. But now they live in a much different culture.

There are plenty of celebrities that came from nothing and turned into something. But what makes a hillbilly celeb different is the typically uneducated unsophisticated behavior that everyone enjoys watching.

Britney Spears and sister Jamie Lynn are perfect examples of hillbilly celebs. They are from the small town of Kentwood, Louisiana, and before they were mu...

More Injuries On 'Dancing With The Stars'

March 17th, 2009 8:34am EDT
It's round two of "injured celebrities who try to dance!" I mean, Dancing With The Stars. This week more contestants were dealing with injury and insult.

Up first, Jewel's replacement, Holly Madison with partner Dmitry Chaplin. Holly performed the quickstep and said she was going for this week's "most improved" dancer. Len Goodman commented that her bust was too big and it led to some bad posture. Bruno Tonioli said she looked like she was chasing after a bus her legs were so frantic, and Carrie Ann Inaba felt like Holly and Dmitry didn't do equal work dancing. She got three 6's which ...

Stuntman Steve-O fears he'll be the next casualty of TV show Dancing With The Stars after pinching nerves in his back.

The Jackass star struggled with his dancing debut on the show earlier this week because he was in agony, and now he's not sure he can continue.

He says, "A physical therapist has told me that nerves are being pinched in my back and it is in spasms because of inflammation related to torn muscles. I'm doing everything I can to let it heal; icing it, taking Advil, drinking water, visiting a chiropractor and continuing to be worked on by the physical therapist. I'm st...
