'Bachelor' Creator Charged With Harassing Brooke Burke Charvet &
Mike Fleiss, the man behind the popular reality competition series "The Bachelor," has been charged with harassing his neighbors Brooke Burke-Charvet and her husband David Charvet.

The Charvets complained that Fleiss physically threatened them and blared barking dog sounds directed at their property during all hours of the day and night. The L.A. County district attorney has since charged Fleiss with disturbing the peace by loud noise, according to TMZ. Fleiss was reportedly uncooperative during the investigation.

The Charvets unsuccessfully tried to get a restraining order in October.

17 Unlikely Celebrity Buddies
Celebrities will always be available to promote off their latest products, films, television shows and endorsements. Yet, they tend to keep their celebrity friendships on the down low. Some of these star buddies are surprising, some are well-known. With all the behind-the-scenes backstabbing that can go along with being in the business, it is a good thing these duos have each other to count on for some real camaraderie.

14 Of Our Favorite Celebrity Fiveheads

What's a 'fivehead'? Well, you've heard of a forehead, right? So then a fivehead must be a little bit bigger (there are even a few sixheads out there, as we'll point out later).

Some could be leased out to companies looking to increase their business, and others could be used as weapons. And perhaps some have the gift of echolocation.

We're not saying these people are unattractive because of their copious craniums, its just all in good fun.

You'll also be surprised to find out that absolutely NONE of these images have been photoshopped.

Over the weekend Snooki posted a photo of herself and her "Besties" on twitter. The "Jersey Shore" star wore a tight black skirt and leopard-print blouse.

We knew back in April, thanks to a loose-lipped Mario Lopez, that ABC would be airing an all-star version of their dancing competition Dancing with the Stars. Finally, the network has officially announced the alternate version of the show, which lets us wonder - who will be on it?

Lopez, obviously, is in unless ABC is sour that he let loose he was asked to be on it before the network announced the show. TV Guide reported Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown, Sabrina Bryan, Gilles Marini and Kyle Massey are in.

'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns J.R. Martinez The Hero Of The Ballroom

November 23rd, 2011 9:14am EST
JR Martinez Wins 'Dancing With The Stars'
So last night ‘Dancing With The Stars’ crowned a new champion for it’s thirteenth season, and it was an outcome that I wouldn’t have predicted. Then again, I feel like I’ve been swinging back and forth all season, so it’s nothing new.

After Monday night’s show, Rob held onto the top spot, and I really hoped he would hang onto it. Here’s where the leader board stood on Monday:

1. Rob and Cheryl - 57
2. Ricki and Derek - 54
2. J.R. and Karina - 54

As usual, all the fallen stars took the stage in the first number, and it never fails to be kind of nostalgic. Which is weird, consid...

Monday night was the last night for the stars to perform for our votes, and time for the much anticipated freestyle dances, which can make or break someone’s chances of winning. We have Ricki, who started strong and just got better. She’s with Derek, who has gotten the trophy every time he’s made it to the finals (three times). Then we have Rob, who has skyrocketed to the top from humble beginnings. His amazing partner, Cheryl, won the first two seasons she was on, but hasn’t won since season three, and hasn’t been to the finals since season eight. Lastly, we have J.R., who stole every...

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovsky were eliminated on DWTS
Next week is the much anticipated finals of this season of ‘DWTS,' so of course last night was the much anticipated elimination to decide who was going to be in the final three. I was concerned for J.R. before I looked at the scores last night, but seeing that he actually fell eleven points behind the leader and nine points behind second place worried me more. Sure, Hope was still seven points behind him, but it surprised me. I knew he had a bad night, but didn’t realize quite how bad.

It’s the semi-finals, and the show is not going easy on our stars now. Last night they all had three dances to perform, with two individual rounds (the second with all of them doing the always fun Argentine tango, with it’s legal lifts), and then a relay dance. Unexpectedly, an injury hindered one of the front runners, giving one of the underdogs a chance to really shine.

Round One: Paso Dobles and Sambas

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Eight Elimination Sends Nancy Packin'

Nancy Grace Eliminated from DWTS
Everyone always talks about how much it’s gotta hurt to be kicked off a show like ‘Dancing’ first, but I always think getting kicked off just before the end has got to hurt just as much. After eight weeks, last night’s results episode gave someone the boot right before the semi-finals.

Here’s how the leader board looked Monday night:

1. J.R. and Karina - 60
2. Hope and Maks - 52
2. Ricki and Derek - 52

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Eight Sees An Unexpected Comeback And The Season's First Perfect Scores

Dancing With The Stars Week Eight
This season of ‘Dancing’ seems like it’s just flying by. It’s already week eight, and last night was the last competition show before the semi-finals. It was also the week to bring back the instant dances, and to award the first perfect scores of the season. If there was ever a time to get a second wind, it’s now, and Hope jumped at the chance to revitalize her game this week when Maks decided to (gasp!) act like an adult for the first time in weeks.

As a result of that, I may have thought last week that I knew who I wanted to win, but now I’m back to only knowing who I want to go home ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Seven's Surprising Elimination: David Arquette

I feel sorry for parents with teenage daughters who watch this show, because last night the Biebs was in the house. And they hyped it up like crazy, as he was really the only “star power” they had last night. The stars who are dancing are old news by now, especially on a night that they’re, you know, not actually dancing..

The team dances on Monday night shook up the leader board, most notably putting Hope in third place, two points above J.R.. Here’s where they stood after the team scores were added in:

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Seven Takes Halloween To New Levels

November 1st, 2011 11:00am EDT
DWTS Halloween
This week ‘Dancing’ was “dead from Hollywood,” which was just the first in a string of goofy Halloween jokes sprinkled throughout the episode. It was also plagued by some truly retro-looking “spooky” CGI, because Halloween just isn’t campy enough for this show. And of course all the dances were Halloween-themed, some more successfully than others. Being a Halloween lover, and a lover of cloak-and-dagger theatrics, I loved the extra ridiculousness. Most of the time.

And Harold Wheeler’s zombie conducting was pretty impressive.

This week, in addition to the solo dances, the stars also h...

Monday night, Ricki picked herself back up, J.R. gave us a little dose of amazing, Maks lost his cool (hard to believe, I know!), Nancy scored way higher than she deserved, and Chaz landed in the bottom spot, a full ten points behind the leaders. So it was interesting, to say the least. With the exception of Ricki and J.R., though, I can’t decide if it was interesting-good, or interesting-bad.

Here’s where the leader board stood on Monday night:

1. Ricki and Derek - 29

Last night ‘Dancing With The Stars’ brought back side ponytails, leg warmers, and music that either inspired nostalgia or mild embarrassment. Or both. Yep, it was 80s night, and while I was young in the 80s, it’s a decade that was hard to forget for anyone who lived through it. Honestly, I’m pretty sure everyone in the fashion and entertainment industries went insane for about ten years. Pants with stirrups? Check. Movies where mannequins came to life? Check. And I’m pretty sure I had an enormous sweater covered in graffiti of every color that was totally radical, dude.

Two weeks ago, I predicted that Kristin would make the top five. Well, I guess not. Meanwhile Chaz is still dancing. I swear, I’ll tear my hair out if we have another Bristol Palin phenomenon. I have a hard time seeing that happening, but it has before.
