Candace Cameron Bure Opens Up on Past Bulimia Battle

We remember her as lovable big sis D.J. Tanner on "Full House," but in Candace Cameron Bure's new book, the actress chronicles her journey through life's awkward phases and what it was like to have the world watching. “It’s a very dangerous cycle that can just start to consume your life and really take over,” Bure told People of the disease, which she recounts in Reshaping It All.”It wasn’t about me trying to lose weight. It was all about emotions.”
It started after Full House concluded in 1995. The child star had endure awkward stages of growing up, including baby fat and all, on national television.
In her new book Reshaping It All, the actress reveals that she began binging and purging after Full House ended its run in 1995 and she was adjusting to life in Canada with her new husband, Russian-born NHL player Valeri Bure.
“It wasn’t about me trying to lose weight,” says Cameron Bure, whose older brother is Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron. “It was all about emotions.”
But now at the age of 34, she has never been in better shape. What’s her secret? Having a pro-athlete husband, three active kids and the important lessons she has learned from her eating disorder.
Now at a healthy weight, the star of the ABC Family series Make It or Break It says she stays healthy thanks to plenty of family exercise time with Bure, 36, and kids Natasha, 12, Lev, 10, and Maks, 8, and a diet philosophy that allows everything in moderation.
At 34, the mother of three is married to former Russian NHL player, Valeri Bure, and says she's in the best shape of her life. But it wasn't always so. In her new book, "Reshaping It All," the actress reveals that she began her battle with bulimia in 1995 after "Full House" had ended. "It's a very dangerous cycle that can just start to consume your life and really take over," she tells People. "It wasn't about me trying to lose weight, it was all about emotions."

A Minute With: Nicole Kidman working on "Rabbit Hole"

Everyone experiences loss and grief but few films show it in such a naked and matter-of-fact manner as does Rabbit Hole. The Aussie actress Nicole Kidman was so passionate about David Lindsay-Abaire's original Pulitzer Prize-winning play that she signed on as one of its producers as well as its star in order to see to that his script would get made into this film.Oscar winning actress Nicole Kidman has scored positive reviews, and a Golden Globe nomination, for her role as a mother dealing with the death of her child in the independent film "Rabbit Hole."The film was released last week in major U.S. theaters and expands around the country starting on Christmas day."Rabbit Hole" is based on the Pulitzer prize-winning play by David Lindsay-Abaire. Kidman stars alongside Aaron Eckhart as grieving couple Becca and Howie. Kidman also produced the film, marking it the inaugural project from her company, Blossom Films.
Q: This film is about understanding the process of coping with grief. What did you learn about that process in making this film -- did you draw from experiences in your life to connect to the characters?

NK: It's something that I've always wanted to explore. I've explored it in other films in different ways. I explored it in a film called Birth which was in a very different way. So I feel like it is territory that I would even explore again because it's so much a part of our journey, what we love, what we lose, and the fear of that.
Those emotions are so palpable and so powerful that I'm just drawn to exploring them and expressing them. But I think that with this film it's very much about a family as well and it's about how a family works through it together, about how you can help people and how in some ways you're just so isolated. I think that's what Howie and Becca are, completely isolated, and yet they are reaching out and they don't know how to connect.

I find that so touching and it was something that was beautifully, beautifully rendered in the screenplay. It's a very difficult place to exist in, but also the words came easily and the emotions. Actually, a lot of it was how to keep them in because they were available I think to all of us and all the actors in the film. A lot of it is restraint because as actors those areas are mined quite a lot. We're asked to mine those things often and a lot of it is up to the editing and to the director about how you modulate it.

A lot of it is restraint because as actors those areas are mined quite a lot. We're asked to mine those things often and a lot of it is up to the editing and to the director about how you modulate it.
Q: Did you go under the radar and attend grief counseling sessions like Aaron Eckhart -- who plays your character's husband Howie -- did?
NK: We both had different experiences. I tried to and was told, "Unless you've actually lost a child or a loved one you're not to come into the room." I completely respected that because they said, "It's just too raw and it's too dangerous and it's a very sacred place and we can't let you in to observe."
I'm glad that they didn't now, when I look back because the way that the emotions came to me in the character were through just my own, the way that I vibrate and the rawness of loving my children. I was able to leap there very quickly. I was amazed at how deep that well is and how available it is.It's probably as David [Lindsay-Abaire, the play's creator and film's screenwriter] said, that he wrote about this thing that terrifies him the most, and as an actor I played the thing that terrifies me the most. Aaron has a different story.
Q: It seemed that at some point that your character would want her husband to show more of an emotional reaction, have an outburst or something -- to be talking about the tragedy with her?
NK: That I needed to have an emotional outburst? He did? No. I mean it's eight months down the road. This [also] answers the other question about how we prepared to play the role -- we rehearsed. We talked.
Part of the preparation that I do as an actor is that I create from birth through now -- which is sort of like my homework -- of where we met, how we got married, all of those things. What happened to my father because you never see my father, just all the details of the [character for the] performance.
Then you come to the rehearsal period and you do scenes and then sort of slowly layer the performance. So, no, I don't think it [needed] an emotional outburst. I'm not saying that didn't happen in the period of eight months prior that you don't see.
That's what I find very beautiful about this film, that this is not about five days after. This isn't the day of the loss. This is [happening] eight months later. This is life. This is how do you stay alive -- how do you choose life when you feel like everything to live for has been taken away. How do you thenlive? That's the subtlety to the film.
How do you live with someone that you used to have moments of great joy with and a normal life with when suddenly you've been completely destroyed. That's why I wanted to make the film because there are so many people in the world existing in [such] places. I've certainly been in a place of extreme depression and pain where choosing life everyday is a choice -- if that makes sense.
Q: When you're shooting such dark material what's the atmosphere like off-camera? Is there joking around or do you try to maintain that serious level of emotion?
NK: Well, with someone like Miles [Teller, the actor who plays Jason, the teenager who accidently runs down their young son] I purposely didn't have any conversations. I didn't want to rehearse the scenes. John and I talked about it and we wanted to keep the tension and the way in which we were relating [to each other] which was with some nervousness and [anxiety]. That was good for the performance, and I think that I probably stayed a little bit in character for the whole film. I was kind of half aware and half not aware.
For this sort of film it's not like you have to be called by the name of the character, but certainly something [remains], there's the presence of the character [there] at all times. Aaron and I would talk, but a lot of our conversations were about our lives. That was good because there was an intimacy to the conversations that I probably wouldn't have had with him if we weren't in a deeply intimate film together. Those will always remain secret.
We had a lot of interns and [such] on the film which is nice because you have people that just absolutely want to be around that are new to filmmaking so they have an enormous amount of enthusiasm, energy and curiosity. And that is a good energy.
Q: Aaron had said that when you walked around the neighborhood you staying in character just wearing your pajamas...
NK: Not my pajamas, my Ugg boots [laughs]. And the other thing is that when you have the writer on the set you can be very nervous because the idea of not pleasing him holds. It's like, "David is here!" But he was so supportive and encouraging and he came to some initial rehearsals as well.
I'm always asking questions of the writer. I just love it because they have the key. They usually have the key.
Q: How did being a parent help you in playing this role?
NK: It's one of those that for me I could go right back into the place that we existed in so quickly. So that it means that the strengths of that love, I mean it's profound. I think from the minute that you have a child or the minute that I've experienced taking care of a child, being the caretaker of a little one, the power of that and the responsibility of that and so therefore the fear of the loss of that child is extraordinary.
I still can't even watch some of the scenes because they affect me so deeply and I've never had that [happen] with a film before. Because I'm a producer, I've seen this film a number of times. I probably won't see the film again, if that makes any sense. I watch two scenes and I'm like, "Ugghhh," because it still affects me so deeply. So I think that's the power of parenting and playing this role.
Q: This project probably wouldn't have happened without your involvement. What struck you about this story or the play that led you to option it and get it going as a film?
NK: Obviously, I just immediately connected with the subject matter. It was interesting to me from [reading] the reviews and then, when I actually read the play, the characters, the whole story I thought, was so available [to me]. I could immediately just jump in and feel [it]. John [Cameron Mitchell] and I did an interview yesterday, and we were saying that with this whole film.... We didn't approach it from an analytical point of view. We did it from a sort of visceral place and that's what it's been.
Q: John is such a unique filmmaker; did you see his movies beforehand?
NK: Yeah, and I just think that I work by my gut and with [producer] Per Saari --he and I optioned the material and we worked on the script with David, when we heard that John had worked on the script we were like, "Wow," that he was really interested in it I thought, "How unusual because of what he'd done and that he was interested in it."
Then I spoke to him on the phone and I just really liked him. I mean, it's that quick. We shared things, but we didn't have any extremely deep conversation. I just liked him and I've made most of my career decisions based on very quick, spontaneous things. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
I like bold directors. I like directors that go against the norm in a way, and I thought mixed with this material and his heart, which he has a big heart, was a good combo.
Q: You did an extraordinary thing here considering that you had the toughest job as both an actor and producer...
NK: I don't know if it was the toughest job, but she's in so much pain and so unable to let it out, trying desperately to move on and cannot move on. So that's why she lashes out at herself and hurts other people and then there's regret. It's so complicated -- each little [aspect] -- and that's why I wanted to make it a really detailed sort of performance. So, I hope that [I succeeded].
Q: Not only is making this film important, it's important that people see it.
NK: Yeah. Thank you. I think it's important and hope that it makes people feel not so alone. That's the [whole] point of it.

It’s really nice.”
What sparked such a gracious and a pregnancy full of gratitude, was an acting roll in which Kidman portrayed the character of Becky in “Rabbit Hole.” The character went through the motions of grief after she loses her eight year old son. She has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her role.
For almost a year, Nicold Kidman was faced with her own grief in trying to become pregnant. Exploring the life of her character and dealing with her own struggle made her grateful for her children.Kidman would rather be at her home with her family rather than exploring Hollywood, as she knows her family is her priority.
Nicole Kidman - Hollywood Actor Nicole Kidman is tired of what she calls “Hollywood stuff.” “I don’t care about all that Hollywood stuff anymore. I’m only interested in the important things in my life — my family is my priority,” Nicole Kidman said in a recent interview.
She went on to say, “I have a different life now – with kids and privacy. But I have been standing in front of the cameras since I was a little girl." Nicole Kidman made it clear however, that is not giving up acting completely. She is just taking some time to focus on her family.

The arrest order has issued Lindsay Lohan’s Father

Lindsay Lohan has apparently taken a pleasure trip to wallet-friendly Forever 21 after completing about five weeks of rehab at the Betty Ford Center. Lohan, 24, strolled into a local Palm Desert, Calif., mall on Wednesday with an unidentifiable female. She headed into Forever 21 and bought about
250 dollar worth of loungewear, according to a source."She picked out everything on her own," the People Magazine quoted the source as saying
Lindsay"She seemed happy and was courteous. She was dressed casual and looked fine," the source added.
The troubled actress has been ordered to stay at Betty Ford until at least Jan. 3.Lindsay Lohan's dad Michael is a wanted man - a judge in New York has issued a warrant for his arrest.
A judge in Suffolk County, New York issued the warrant on Thursday, stemming from a legal case with a Montana woman who alleges Michael Lohan fathered her child.
Kristi Kaufmann sued the Lohan patriarch in 2008 and won an uncontested judgment because Michael never opposed the baby claim, reports
Michael Lohan insists he was unaware of the warrant and believes it is because he was a day late making his second child support payment to Kaufmann - and he's adamant once he makes the instalment the warrant will be withdrawn.
LINDSAY LOHAN's estranged father has launched a desperate bid to prompt his daughter to stop smoking while she's attempting to give up drugs in court-ordered rehab.Michael Lohan has been banned from actually visiting the actress at the Betty Ford Clinic in Rancho Mirage, California - but that hasn't stopped him from trying to get his anti-smoking message across.The care package he sent to Lohan on Thursday (04Nov10) reportedly also contained over $8,000 (£5,300) worth of clothing.

News has hit this morning that there is a Lindsey Lohan sextape or as we call it around here “the 16th minute of fame” circulating the web. What makes this sex tape so interesting is it is a threesome. When you think of Lindsay Lohan’s sexual past this could be any combination of bodies piled up on the tape. Lindsey Lohan and two guys, maybe Lindsy Lohan with a guy and a girl of the ultimate 3 girl romp.Hopefully this tape was made before Lindsay hood up with party promoter and DJ Samantha Ronson. Samamtha is one of the ugliest chicks we have ever seen dressed, there is no way we would want to see her naked.The good news is like we always say around here where there is smoke there is fire. Typically when these sex tapes get talked about they tend to appear. The bad thing is all sextapes are not built alike. The Kari Ann Peniche, Eric Andrews, Rebecca Gayheart Sextape had no actual sex in it. It was just 3 naked celegbrities in a hotel room partying naked. On the other end of the spectrum the tape that pretty much started it all the Pam Anderson/Tommy Lee sextape is a modern marvel of porn.

The Dancing With the Stars 2010 lineup results have mostly favored one contestant. Yet the Dancing With the Stars 2010 lineup has had new leaders now, after the results of the last two weeks. When Season 11 started,Jennifer Grey looked like the clear frontrunner, with everyone else just aiming for second. Grey still has the only perfect scores of Season 11, and has the best body of work through six weeks. Yet the last two weeks have made her look very vulnerable, as she nearly faced elimination this Tuesday. Therefore, the Dancing With the Stars lineup could lose Grey, if her results don't get better soon.

For three of the first four weeks of Season 11, Grey was in control. She led the judges scores, got two perfect 10's in Week 4, and was all but given the mirror ball. Since there has been little suspense in the last few seasons, it appeared that it would be the same old story this fall.

Instead, the last Dancing With the Stars 2010 lineup results have thrown the entire competition in question. Grey took a few lumps in Week 5, as she slipped into the bottom three and didn't lead the judges' scores. However, the last time she didn't get the high scores, she rebounded with perfect 10's in her next routine.

Yet it didn't get any easier for Grey this Monday, as she got her worst scores of Season 11. What's more, she was in the bottom two with fellow frontrunner Audrina Patridge, after the two were expected to be in the final two weeks ago. Patridge was sent out, however, eliminating one major challenger for Grey, at the least

'Happy Days' stars Henry Winkler react to Tom Bosley death

Bosley, who died Tuesday at his home in Palm Springs at age 83, is set to be buried in a private funeral in Los Angeles on Friday.
Director Ron Howard, who played Richie Cunningham on the show, told TMZ: “I'm so saddened by the loss of our wonderful Tom Bosley. Remarkable on so many levels, Tom's insight, talent, strength of character and comic timing made him a vital central figure in the Happy Days experience."
Henry Winkler, otherwise known as “The Fonz,” echoed Howard’s sentiments to the site. “Tom Bosley was our mentor. He was a true artist ... a great husband, and a fabulous father and grandfather. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten." He also told E News, "We were a make-believe family for 10 years, and like a real family for over 30. He will be so, so missed."

Marion Ross, Bosley's wife, Marion, on the show, told the Associated Press: "He was my husband for ll years and the father of the company in many ways. He was so smart he could fix the end of a joke or a scene on the spot. We made a perfect couple. I played picolo to his tuba."
Scott Baio remembered Bosley to his followers on Twitter. “Mr. Tom Bosley will be missed by many. He was a great actor, teacher and man.”
Henry Winkler, who co-starred with Tom Bosley in the 70s hit sit-com, 'Happy Days,' has become the latest actor to honor Bosley, who died Tuesday at 83.
Mr. Winkler played 'The Fonz,' the macho biker with the big heart and the foil for Bosley, who played Howard Cunningham, a mild-mannered father figure who served as an iconic anchor for the series during its 10-year run.
Winkler told that "I saw him before I ever got to Hollywood or Broadway. He was a true artist. A great husband, and a fabulous father and grandfather. He will never be forgotten."
Winkler is the second Hollywood star to commemorate Bosley. Ron Howard, another star of the series who went on to a successful career in film direction, honored Bosley with a statement Wednesday."He had that wonderful, sprite-like energy of his," Winkler says. "It was apparent on the phone when I spoke to him three weeks ago, it was apparent when we saw each other a year ago, it was apparent when we saw each other before that."

T.J. Lavin In A Coma After Bike Accident

Family and friends of T.J. Lavin received good and bad news this week as the BMX rider continues to suffer the consequences of a stunt gone wrong at the Dew Tour Championships last week.
While doctors diagnosed Lavin as suffering from pneumonia, a common problem for patients with breathing tubes, the medical staff at Las Vegas' University Medical Center determined that the athlete likely does not have any brain damage, according to
“Doctor’s are not expecting any [brain damage],” TJ’s friend and business manager, Chas Aday, told People magazine on Tuesday. “We’re just not going to know until he wakes up if there is any loss or how bad it is going to be.”
The 33-year-old “Real World/Road Rules Challenge” host, who has reportedly been kept in a medically induced coma since suffering an orbital fracture on his eye and a fractured right wrist in the accident, is now also battling pneumonia (most likely caused by the breathing tube that is helping the injured rider breathe while sedated), according to the mag.
The development of pneumonia has reportedly delayed surgery on TJ’s shattered wrist, but Chas said the star’s prognosis is still positive.

“He’s responding well,” Chas told the mag. “He’s squeezing our hands, so he’s responding appropriately. … He is coherent, but not fully awake. He’s following simple commands.”
In a separate interview with People, TJ’s mother, Barbara Lavin, said it was “killing” her to see her son like this.
“It’s very hard to see him like that. He doesn’t know where he is,” she told the mag. “I’ll say, ‘Mom’s here, squeeze my hand,’ and he will sometimes. Not always, but sometimes. He knows when Mom is here, he knows when his girlfriend is here. He squeezes her hand. It’s not all the time.”“It’s killing me,” she said of her son’s condition.
"I'm good," she told PEOPLE on Tuesday, five days after her son was put in a medically induced coma after crashing his BMX bike in Las Vegas. "Last night, not so much, but we talked to the doctor, and he made me feel so much better."
TJ was diagnosed with pneumonia on top of his crash injuries, but the antibiotics seem to be working. "He seems to be a little better," Barbara said. "His oxygen rate is a little better. The doctor was so reassuring."
But make no mistake: "It's killing me," she said of her son's struggle.
"It's very hard to see him like that. He doesn't know where he is," she said. "I'll say, 'Mom's here, squeeze my hand,' and he will sometimes. Not always, but sometimes. He knows when Mom is here, he knows when his girlfriend is here. He squeezes her hand. It's not all the time."
Aside from being Mom, Barbara is also acting as gatekeeper to her son's hospital room. And while she jokes that too many people are seeing the MTV host – or interested in seeing him – she's not surprised about the outpouring of support.
"He's got friends from all walks of life," she said. "He's got friends from the business community. He's got friends from the biking community. He's got friends from television. He would never burn anybody. He has a very high moral code. And I'm not saying that because I'm his mother. If I didn't think that, I'd tell him in a heartbeat."

Hilary Swank & "Conviction" Movie Review

Double Oscar Winner Hilary Swank actually looked like an Oscar statue when her movie Conviction had it’s premiere during the London Film Festival.
Hilary, who has the Best Actress gold statuette for her roles in Boy’s Don’t Cry and Million-Dollar Baby, could even be up for a third Oscar for her role in this movie.

Conviction is a gripping drama and Hilary plays an unemployed single mother who spent years earning a law degree so she could defend her brother who was wrongly convicted of murder. It’s like a more serious Erin Brokovich and Swank’s ragged appearance as a single mother in the film is in stark contrast to how she walked the red carpet at The Vue West End in London’s Leicester Square for the premiere.
When reporters on the red carpet quizzed her about whether she wanted a third Oscar, she was modest.

“The idea of even having an Academy Award is something I’m really grateful for and quite in awe of and humbled by,” the down-to-earth actress said. “I just tell stories that challenge me as an actor and as a human being, and Conviction was certainly that challenge.”
The couple are being coy but with Hilary looking so hot then John needs to get a ring on it and preferably one in the same colour as her dress…or in platinum.
For a dress with the ultimate wow-factor try a Love Label pleated goddess maxi dressOr for a similar gold dress of a shorter length you can’t help but be amazed by the striking Rare metallic one shoulder dressAnd for a gold dress with the ultimate shine, the Vicky Martin twinkle sequin backless dress has thousands of sequins plus a very sexy open back – perfect for those Christmas parties!Get ready to see Hilary tackling more juicy roles very soon. She’s already filming The Resident, which follows a young doctor who is being stalked by her landlord.

The 40-year-old actress loves the story of her character Betty Anne Waters - a single mother who despite never finishing high school, puts herself through law school whilst working as a waitress to prove her brother Kenneth had not committed the murder he has been jailed for - but struggled to believe it actually happened.

David Schwimmer Married This Past June

Word just arrived today that former “Friends” star David Schwimmer was wedded to British photographer Zoe Buckman this past June – and he neglected to inform the media. According to sources, the ceremony was very private and subdued. The source, a representative of the actor, divulged no further details.In the wake of Courtney Cox’s split from her husband of 11 years David Arquette, it seems that another member of the “Friends” cast has made headlines- this time for getting married.
David Schwimmer tied the knot with his British girlfriend: photographer Zoe Buckman. The couple reportedly met in London where Schwimmer was directing his 2007 comedy “Run Fat Boy, Run”. reports that David met Zoe in the West End’s Cuckoo Club where she was working as a waitress. When he returned to the States, she followed, and they began dating.
Most of the details of the courtship were kept out of the public eye, although David did announce the low key couple’s engagement in March of this year.
They were later wed in a private ceremony in back in June. They somehow managed to keep the marriage a secret for four months until a rep confirmed it to People Magazine.
Unfortunately, the happy news was released the same day that fellow “Friend” Courtney announced her separation.
Kind of cool to have "We've been married for a few months but didn't blab about it" news come along in the wake of the "We've been separated for a few months but didn't blab about it" word from David Arquette and Courteney Cox, Schwimmer's former "Friends" castmate. The 43-year-old actor proposed to photographer Zoe Buckman, 25, in March - and the pair managed to exchange vows away from the spotlight this summer.Schwimmer's representative has confirmed to the couple wed at a private ceremony four months ago.
The pair met when Buckman was working as a waitress at a London restaurant, while he was in the city filming his 2007 movie "Run Fatboy Run."
The news comes just after Schwimmer's former "Friends" co-star Courteney Cox announced she had separated from husband David Arquette, potentially ending their 11-year marriage.

Napoleon Dynamite is going to become an animated series

A cartoon series based on the 2004 comedy film Napoleon Dynamite is in the works and the original cast members, including main actor Jon Heder, are reportedly set to voice their former characters.THE FOX network will air an animated series based on the 2004 indie comedy film Napoleon Dynamite next season.
Jon Heder, who played the title role in the movie about a bullied teenager and his friends in rural Idaho, will provide the character's voice in the series, and the rest of the cast will reunite to voice their characters, reports.
The series was written by Jared Hess and Jerusha Hess - who co-wrote the movie, with Jared Hess directing - and "The Simpsons" executive producer Mike Scully. All three are executive producers on the series.
Fox ordered six episodes of Napoleon Dynamite, as well as seven episodes of another new animated series, Allen Gregory, about a world-famous seven-year-old adjusting to normal life at an elementary school.
It seems only natural, but the network that has changed Sunday night into nothing but primetime animation is turning Utah film favorite "Napoleon Dynamite" into a TV series.
Fox has ordered six episodes of the new animated series, which will feature the movie's original cast for the voices, including star Jon Heder, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The "Napoleon Dynamite" series will be voiced by the original cast of the film, and the original writers and directors, Jared and Jerusha Hess, adapted the movie for television with the assistance of Mike Scully, a veteran of "The Simpsons." So far, though, Fox has only ordered six episodes of the series, something Deadline claims is frustrating to the producers of the show.

Bristol Palin on 'Dancing with the Stars' pokes fun at mother, Sarah Palin

Despite her bedazzled booty shorts, the "Umbrella"-laced routine was about as gloomy as the rainy day accessory being sung about. Bristol brings no fire to her performances, there is no intensity in her eyes and finally the judges put her on blast for it by sticking her with the night's second lowest set of scores.
Coming in last was once again The Situation (who Bristol has been battling with all season for worst dancer honors) -- his Argentine Tango was sloppier than any boozy behavior captured by the "Jersey Shore" cameras. I love that by this point, Karina Smirnoff knows she can't rely on him so all her routines involve dancing around him.

The "Dancing with the Stars" stage has become a 360-degree shakespearean pit and you know what that means, guys! It's acoustic week! Apparently that means no one can land their moves anymore and ABC is all up in arms because they are now scoring for technique AND performance - a double score showdown! Ooooh! Please.
Oh, finally, The Situation has his abs out. He's fist pumping -- he's such a cheese. Guess he thought he'd resort to the old charm to maintain his precarious standing. Apparently Bristol is getting all sexy this week too, which looks like it involves some stripping as she's wearing a bulky white button down shirt with sparkly black thingy beneath.Kurt Warner is dancing the rumba to celebrate his 13th wedding anniversary. He and Anna are trying to infuse the dance with sexiness but he won't put his hands on her hips because he's a "Christian guy." Dude, she's not asking you to make out with her in the closet. Plus, without make-up, Anna looks rough, so it's not like he can't help himself.

The duo's significant others show up to make sure they don't trip and start making babies together. Kurt's wife looks a bit displeased, then reveals it's because it reminds her of when they first dated and Kurt kept looking for someone better. Ouch!

During the dance, Kurt still looks stiff but he's got some good hip action going on. Len thought his posture was over the top but that the romantic side was well done. Bruno had trouble with his movement and the lack of chemistry. But Carrie Ann loved it. "Chemistry isn't all about raunch, Bruno," she said.

Technical: All 5's
Performance: Carrie 7, Len 6, Bruno 6

Brandy doesn't feel sexy because she hasn't been with someone in six years. Say what? Maks takes her to a bar to be romantic -- flowers, wine, chocolates included -- but nit picker that she is, Brandy says he needs to be more convincing. Um, six years is looking pretty good for her right now.

Already in the opening this dance feels wrong. Brandy is lying on the floor like a dead fish and Maksim is circling around her like a hungry shark. But that dinner seems to have done the trick (did these two have a night cap?) - Brandy is super into it, though it's a little distracting to see her wear a very flappy silk sheathe with nothing but a pair of sparkly briefs and bra underneath.

Suddenly Brandy rips off Maks' shirt and throws herself on the ground before my recording dies a horrible death, but it looks like she resumes her dead fish pose. Carrie said she'd been waiting for the real Brandy and called it her comeback night. Len thought it was a little hot and spicy for his teaste.

Bret Michaels, "Riding Against the Wind" Premiere

The Wantagh appearance is one of many the singer is making on a comeback tour after recovering from a brain hemorrhage in April. Michaels, who has diabetes, also recently announced he’s scheduled for surgery early next year to repair a hole in his heart.
Bret Michaels, who underwent brain surgery just a few months ago, has not been sidelined by his health woes. The singer is back and better than ever and premiered his new video for "Riding Against the Wind." Michaels, who recently appeared buck naked and flashing "The Situation"-like abs on the cover of Billboard, opens up in this clip, allowing viewers and fans to have an intimate look into his life on the road, with his daughters and with his beloved. It also boasts shots of Michaels strumming on his guitar against a white backdrop.
Michaels' latest, Custom Built, which features "Riding Against the Wind," is out now.

The Poison rocker — who features in VH1’s Rock of Love with Bret Michaels – says TV has made him more money than he ever thought possible.
“TV has absolutely made my sales go up, made my tour guarantees go up,” he said. “TV has been a great addition to my career. But the key thing is knowing what to walk away from. I advise anyone-especially musicians-to be very careful not to just grab anything they throw your way.”Michaels then explained his decision to take part in Rock of Love.
“I thought that I have three generations of Poison fans, and this would open me up to a whole new generation,” he said.
“My fears about the show weren’t about music. I turned it down the first time they approached me, because their first idea was very retro.
“They wanted the 1986 Bret Michaels. My fans enjoyed the teased hair, the spandex. It was great, it was the time I lived in. Who knew that spandex tucked into cowboy boots would ever go out of style? But for some strange reason, it did. I’d progressed forward and I didn’t want to go back. I stood up for myself and said, “You need to let me be who I am right now in my life.”
Bret — who is scheduled to go under the knife in January to repair a hole in his heart, which has plagued him since birth — recently admitted he is struggling to “think positive” as the surgery looms closer.
“I’m going in there thinking very positively that it’s going to be great and I’m going to feel a whole lot better, but I’d be lying to say that somewhere in my subconscious there’s not a little bit of gulling,” he said.
“When they’re going through your body to operate on your heart, it’s going to hit you somewhere that they’re toying with the ticker. There’s definitely a little fear in there somewhere.”
Twenty years after peak heartthrob status, Michaels appears on the cover of Billboard Magazine clad only in his bandanna, which we're pretty sure is glued to his head at this point. His six-pack abs inspired some skeptics to accuse the mag of some pretty drastic retouching, but photographer Blair Bunting insists that he went easy on the airbrush.

The before and after pics are above. We think they just added a little bit of chiseling around his hips, and somehow made his face look older by altering the coloring.

Brandon Tate New England Patriots Randy Moss Replacement

Brandon Tate New England Patriots Randy Moss Replacement – With Randy Moss leaving the New England Patriots for the Minnesota Vikings, where will that leave their potent passing attack? Surely, the front office still thinks that the Patriots are a competitive team, and would not trade away their online deep threat if they did not feel that they had something lined up that could begin to fill that role.
I'm not exactly surprised. It's interesting because I think the Pats had a good amount of time to see the outcome of Tate and Wes Welker's knee situation. It gave them some time to see if those guys would be healthy. It’s also a good time for this team (to make this trade) because it’s during a bye week. It's a period of time where you don’t have a lot of distractions going on, where you release a big-name guy and the younger guys can still focus on the task at hand, which is football.

In my opinion, I saw this coming a lot sooner than when it happened. I saw it coming when Randy went off and had his rant. Obviously, agents talk to players, and rumors are all around the league, and I feel that Randy kind of knew about this, probably during Week 1.
On the third-round pick the Patriots got in return
Third-round compensation -- I think that's pretty legit. I think that's a pretty equal payout for Randy. Randy is obviously getting old now. Some people would argue that he’s not a complete receiver. A lot of times, teams want a receiver that blocks and catches and does all the other things that receivers do -- I know some seventh-round receivers that can be a lot more valuable than the things that Randy does. Troy Brown is one of those guys that was an eighth-round pick. As an eighth-round guy, that was very valuable. The Vikings giving up a third-round pick, I think that's pretty equal
On which Patriots receivers will benefit most from Moss' departure
When you look at Tate, I think Tate's going to have the biggest impact out of Randy Moss' departure. Look at Matthew Slater also. He’s a guy that hasn’t had a lot of playing time. He’s a very fast guy. I think his role is going to improve as well. You look at Julian Edelman, a guy who is more of a slot receiver. I think his role will improve also. You look at Wes. He may have one or two extra catches, but as a receiver corps as a whole, I think all their catches will be more productive. You can go to the tight end side. Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, I think the two of them will have more catches, but specifically, Hernandez will be a guy that I think will go out and play some 'X.' He’ll play in the slot some as well. But the two guys I think who will have the most impact will be Tate and Hernandez.
On how the trade will impact Patriots receiver Brandon Tate
Brandon Tate's one of those guys that I used to watch a few years ago when he was in college in Carolina, and in my opinion, before he got hurt, he was a guy who could have won the Biletnikoff Award -- that’s the best receiver in college football. Brandon Tate is a very talented guy. I've watched his routes. I’ve watched his technique, his speed, the way he runs. He's a very talented guy that has obviously attained a lot of skills playing at North Carolina, so if you look at Tate in the preseason and you look at him in the first couple weeks, you can tell that he's maturing week to week. He had one fumble last week, and obviously, he made up from that this week against Miami, but he’s one of those guys who seems like he’s improving week to week. I'm very confident that he will be able to step up and be that number one-or-two guy, whichever is needed. He's more of a complete receiver, so I think he's going to help out the team a lot.

On how losing Randy Moss will affect quarterback Tom Brady
First things first, I think Tom's thinking of the younger receivers that are with the Patriots, and you know, letting these guys know that they need to continue to be productive, and they better step it up, because Randy isn't here anymore to take pressure off the other guys.

When you look at Tom and Randy's relationship together, the two of them did do great things here as Patriots, but to be honest with you, I think this may be kind of a relief, a monkey off of Tom's back at this point. It may sound funny for me to say this, but when you look at what Randy brought to the Patriots offense, being a receiver that doesn’t block at times can hurt the team. Being a guy that Tom is almost forced to have to throw to can almost hurt the team as well.

In my opinion, I feel that a monkey is almost off of Tom's back, and I think I saw that in the Miami game. It seems a little backward to say this, but it seemed that the game plan was not to throw Randy Moss the ball, and I saw the elation on Tom Brady's face every time the special teams would score.

Yes, it was a big win against Miami, on the road, but at the same time, I thought that Tom and Bill almost felt like, "What a relief, we’re winning this game without Randy." So I think this was almost planned maybe a couple of weeks in advance. I really think there's a big monkey off of Tom's back, and I can almost guarantee you that the Patriots will look like the Patriots of 2002-2005 again.
While some Patriots fans feel that it was a terrible decision to trade Randy Moss at this point in the season, former Patriots wide receiver and NESN Daily insider David Givens believes it will benefit the team.

According to Givens, this trade will allow Tom Brady to involve all of his receivers and tight ends without being forced to throw to Moss, leaving Brady a little more comfortable in the pocket.

Women Love Christina Hendricks

The 'Mad Men' beauty - who has won praise for her curvaceous figure - is reportedly being considered by the British style bible to grace their coveted front cover.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Christina has no idea what a buzz she has created with her ample curves. She has sent the fashion circuit in a tizz, particularly it seems those at Vogue HQ.
Best known for her role on the hit show ‘Mad Men’, Christina Hendricks has found out that a lot of people admire her looks. The curvy, size-4 (14???), 5-foot-8 actress has found out that not only men hit on here, but women as well. Hendricks has also found that many curvy women out there are starting to see her as a role model, as she makes looking curvy very, very sexy.
“Women hit on me. My husband thinks it’s so odd that so many women hit on me.”During a dinner with her husband, Geoffrey Arend, a woman approached and told Hendricks about how she helped to feel sexy and beautiful.“‘Excuse me, I just want to tell you that I watch your show, and you make me feel better about myself. I am a curvy woman, and you’ve made me feel sexy and beautiful.’ I got teary eyed.”
“I remember Geoffrey saying, ‘That’s what you’re doing for people. That’s amazing.’ And I said, ‘I’m just trying to be a good actress and trying to tell a story, but if this is the sidebar, all this positivity, then that is awesome.’”
As revealed on Harper’s Bazaar’s November issue, the voluptuous figure of Christina Hendricks, as affirmed by her husband catches the attention of women and even gay men.
The 35 year old Mad Men actress dishes out that gays do approach her saying, “Well, I’m not straight, but if I was…” The flattering statement makes Hendricks laugh as she is also flattered. However, the actress also admits that she has never thought about her body becoming a topic stirring conversation. She was surprised but figured out it was something positive to which she enjoyed getting good remarks from people.

Her body turned out to be a way of reaching out to people which she claims, is amazing. In the interview, she recalled how an admirer, a female thanked Christina for making her feel good and appreciate her own body. The woman was teary-eyed when she left. Upon first glance, there doesn't appear to be many similarities between Christina Hendricks and Karen Elson, oh except they both have flaming red locks. But according to the Mad Men actress, that's exactly what her and the British model have in common.

In a new interview with Harper's Bazaar US, in which she has been snapped by Terry Richardson, Hendricks makes a startling revelation that Elson copied her look. It seems during the 1990s when Hendricks was in Europe to do the modelling rounds for mags such as Dazed & Confused, she bumped into Elson.

"I was in Milan, and you would see the same girls at castings. There was one girl - she was like, 'I can't get any work. I'm so sick of this, I'm ready to quit. I love your hair color. What do you color your hair with?' and I was like, 'Oh, it's red. Here's my formula.' It was Karen Elson. A couple of weeks later, she had bright-red hair." Christina says.
