His voice is known across the country. For more than two decades, Elvis Duran has dedicated his life to being the "Host with the Most," and "Master of the Mornings" on the top rated "Elvis Duran and the Morning Show" at "Z100" in New York City. Whether they're calling in one of their famous "Phone Taps", interviewing celebrities, dishing the "Sleaze" with Danielle, or making "Greg T- The Frat Boy" repel down the side of a building, Elvis and the "Morning Crew" clearly know how to have fun, and bring listeners with them on the ride!

So what happens when the mics get turned off?...

Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Episode 2 'Spaghetti & Coffee'

September 24th, 2012 9:25am EDT
Bobby Cannavale
With the introduction of the incredibly hot-headed, and manic Gyp Rosetti (Bobby Cannavale) last week, episode 2 really starts to dive into just how psychotic the gangster is. In every scene Cannavale appears, you never know what you are gonna get. In this episode, Rosetti officially starts a war with Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) by trying to jack his hootch delivery at a local gas station. They're forced to turn around and head back to A.C. instead of it's final destination into the hands of NY gangster Arnold Rothstein, who Nucky has now sworn only to do business with. It's only the st...

Shining & Falling Stars: Lady Gaga and Paris Hilton

Lady Gaga
Shining Star: Lady Gaga - Love her, or hate her, Lada Gaga keeps it real. And what I mean by "real" is that she isn't afraid to say what she feels, or really hides anything, as we know from some of her outrageous fashion.

Recently, some magazines targeted the "Born This Way" singer, who started her tour in Amsterdam looking noticeably thicker. The NY Daily News harshly called her "Gaga-gantuan." While most celebs would promptly start what I like to call the "Cheerio Diet" (definition: a celebrity diet of eating half a Cheerio, smoking a lot of cigarettes, and drinking gallons of water--- I...

Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Premiere: Review

In perhaps one of the most anticipated television returns of the fall season, the 3rd season of "Boardwalk Empire" starts off with a bang.. literally. ( **Spoiler Alert**- If you haven't watched it yet-- you may want to hold off on reading the rest of this article.)

Admittedly, I was a late bloomer to the Emmy Award and Golden Globe winning show. Thanks to "HBOGo," I blew thru the first two seasons of the classic mobster story within 2 weeks, and it left me wanting more. It also left me extremely anxious, especially after last season's high body count- including the shocking murder of Jim...

Shining Star: Kellie Pickler - No, the Country cutie is not having a Britney Spears moment. The singer recently buzzed off all her blonde locks in support of her best friend, Summer Holt Miller, who was diagnosed with breast cancer and started chemo treatments. In a moment of solidarity, the two long-time friends, who describe each other as "sisters," got together in Nashville and went under the razor.

The 26-year-old debuted her new look in a video clip on "Good Morning America" this past week. Pickler took to Twitter on Tuesday and called the experience “one of the most incredible days ...

Shining Star: Nicki Minaj - After both J.Lo and Steven Tyler bowed out of their judging duties on "American Idol," chaos ensued. Would the show go on? Who would replace them if it did?

The show already signed on Mariah Carey, for a reported boatload of cash. Now there's one seat remaining, and rumors are swirling that the eccentric Nicki Minaj would be filling that vacant spot. And the news isn't sitting well with Carey.

Sources connected to the show told TMZ that Mariah had been led to believe that she was going to be the only female on the panel, so she's understandably annoyed that she...

This Week's Shining & Falling Stars: Jordan Sparks & Justin Bieber

This week's rising star is Jordan Sparks!

I hate to admit it, but yes, I am an obsessive viewer of "American Idol." So much so, that I was disappointed I didn't get a phone call from Simon Cowell after the big judge shake-up pre-Ellen. So when i watched Jordan Sparks become the winner of "AI" in 2007, I knew they chose the right one.. I just hoped her win wouldn't let her end up like some of the other "Idols" that never really went anywhere after the show.

But Sparks kept her winning train going... she had big success on the music charts and now she's gearing up for her first film, "Spar...

Shining Star: Christian Bale - Everyone across the country was touched last weekend by the horrific movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colorado during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises." It's hard to imagine the grief and horror the victims and their families are going through after 12 people were killed and dozens more wounded.

Over the weekend, Bale released a statement regarding the massacre, saying “Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”

Sofia Vergara
Shining Star- Sofia Vergara: She's truly 40 and fabulous! Not only is she an uber-sexy Latina actress, (seriously, have you seen her body?) but Vergara just earned a spot on Forbes list for the highest paid television actress. It's all thanks to her killer role on the hit sitcom "Modern Family," which seems to be tailored perfectly for her personality.

Not only that, the Columbian-born star is also an entrepreneur. Aside from a clothing line and multiple endorsement deals, Vergara built up her own company called "Latin World Entertainment," a licensing, marketing, production and new-media...
