Kevin Federline
Britney Spears' ex-husband Kevin Federline was recently hospitalized in Australia for "heat stress" while trying to lose weight for a new reality TV show.

The former dancer stunned fans in 2009 when he was photographed sporting a bulging belly, and the shot earned him the nickname 'K-Fat'. He managed to slim down after adopting a strict diet and exercise regime during a stint on TV's Celebrity Fit Club last year, but he piled on the pounds again months later.

Federline is now getting serious about shaping up and headed Down Under in November to take part in reality weight loss show Exce...

Celebs Who Should Avoid Celebrating National Junk Food Day

Val Kilmer
July 21 is "National Junk Food Day." It's a day to commemorate Little Debbies, Tasty Cakes, and Ho Hos. It's a day we don't have to feel guilty for shoving our faces with Fritos, Doritos, and Cheetos.

In the world of celebrity gossip, it is also a day to point out some stars who have been in the spotlight due to their weight issues (like Val Kilmer above).

Jessica Simpson is no stranger to the tabloids following her every move and pointing out a tiny little roll here or a section of cellulite there. She was recently placed on the "List of Fat Celebrities" on the NY Post website and has be...

What 'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Lacked – Unpredictability

Erin Andrews
“Dancing With The Stars” is a great idea for a television show – get a handful of some famous faces, pair them with professional dancers and dress them up in sparkly outfits while they get harsh criticism filled with double entendres. As season 10 came to a close last night, it’s clear that audiences have really grown to love this formula as the show’s ratings top the juggernaut that is “American Idol”.

However, here’s one complaint – the celebrities with the dancing experience always place the highest! Ok so DWTS is a show based around competitive dancing. It’s like the free market where ...

Federline has now apologized to his former fiancée on TV during an episode of Celebrity Fit Club, which saw them both compete with other contestants to lose weight...

Paris Hilton
As expected and not surprisingly, Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and his wife Rebecca Gayheart have filed a lawsuit against Gawker.com and a journalist for posting a private home video of the couple walking around nude in their apartment and sharing porn names in a bubble bath. The couple along with their friend former Miss Teen USA Karin Ann Peniche appear nude and heavily intoxicated in the video. The video has been circulating around the internet for a month now.

Disney Stars: Where Should The Guidance Come From

Tweens and teenagers are impressionable flibbertigibbets. They lack the experience, perspective, and good judgment that can really only come with age. Throw money and fame into the mix, and the results can be less than desirable. Young Disney stars find themselves in just such a situation.

These young people, mostly female, have access to anything they could possibly want: expensive clothes, millions of fans, instant friends, decreased parental supervision, other celebrities, and parties. We've seen, though, that this kind of power isn't always a good thing. Similar circumstances led ...

British Invasion: UK Shows Coming To America

Life On Mars
With the American version of "The Office" still leading NBC's fall line-up, remakes of successful British shows have become a hot commodity. Picking up on this success, several networks have snatched up the rights to remake some of the most popular British shows. It's a process that has obviously worked in the past, at least in the world of reality television. "Dancing with the Stars," "Big Brother," and "Celebrity Fit Club" all had their start in the Fallen Empire, but remakes of drama and comedy haven't been nearly as successful. For better of for worse, here's a list of shows that will i...

Where Are They Now: The Cast Of 'Family Ties'

4/8/2008 1:00pm EDT
Family Ties
Family Ties, a wildly popular 80's show about an Ohio family, originally premiered on NBC Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. in 1982. Steve and Elyse Keaton (Michael Gross, Meredith Baxter-Birney) were products of the 60's love and peace hippie movement. They were smart and professional; Elyse was an architect and Steve was in public television. Their politics were liberal.

Oddly enough, their offspring included the ultra-conservative Alex (Michael J. Fox), who was into all things Wall Street and Republican, and Mallory (Justine Bateman), who was an airhead into designer jeans and boys who were ...

Gary Busey Needs His Own Reality Show

Gary Busey
For those of you that saw this year's Oscars, certainly you were riveted. No, I'm not talking about the Academy Awards show's salute to periscopes. I'm speaking, of course, about E!'s 9-hour red carpet coverage featuring Ryan Seacrest. Ryan's main job was to stand behind a shrub and ask the star couples such probing questions as "When are you two getting married?" like he was their grandmother.

His interview with Jennifer Garner was running smoothly until someone let the Buse loose. I am speaking, of course, about Mr. Gary Busey. Gary burst onto the screen, yelling at Seacrest and...
