See Kendra Wilkinson, Kirstie Alley’s Sexy DWTS Costumes

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Kendra Wilkinson and Kirstie Alley are ready to rumba!

Two days after ABC announced that Wilkinson, 25, will be paired with Louis van Amstel on Dancing With the Stars, the network released the first set of official partner portraits.

Alley will team up with fan fave Maksim Chmerkovskiy — and the temperamental dance pro is already putting the Fat Actress star to work!

“My partner says I’m slow,” she told UsMagazine.com at the cast reveal Monday. “He calls me Grandma — G for short! I call him M — for mean!”

Kidding aside, the Fat Actress star said she’s looking forward to dancing her way thin over the course of the competition.

“I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,” she said. “I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s gonna work. It’s exciting.”

Wilkinson, on the other hand, is already nervous about her competition — especially Alley, 60.

“I’m worried about the Karate Kid [Ralph Macchio], the wrestler [Chris Jericho] and the boxer [Sugar Ray Leonard], because it’s all about brainwork with dancing and they have it already,” she told Us. “They’ve been choreographed before and I haven’t! I’m all about freestyle and shaking my butt! That’s all I got! And I think Kirstie Alley wins the popularity vote; she has the most fans, I think.”

And don’t expect the former Playboy model to show too much skin on the family-approved program.

“I can’t look too sexy,” she told Us. “That’s the key, you know. I’m already known as the Playboy girl, so I can’t go out there and do that. I have to be ABC appropriate!”

Snooki on Rolling Stone Cover

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Snooki knows her days on Jersey Shore are numbered.

Though she and her MTV castmates will shoot their fourth season in Italy this spring, the 23-year-old New York native tells the new issue of Rolling Stone (on stands now) she’s already devised a plan to extend her 15 minutes of fame.

“When Jersey Shore ends I’m going to do more spinoffs,” she tells the mag. “If MTV doesn’t want them, another network will be, like, ‘What does Snooki do now?’ or ‘Snooki’s getting married!’ What I’d like is to turn out like Jessica Simpson, with her whole brand. She makes millions. I’m trying to build an empire, because after this I can’t get a normal job. I mean, how do I go and sit behind a desk?”

Not that her stardom shows any signs of slowing down: more than 8.5 million viewers tune in each week to watch America’s No. 1 party girl get rowdy with her costars (including Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Jenni “JWoww” Farley).

Still, Snooki (real name: Nicole Polizzi) admits that like some of her critics, she’s growing tired of her wild ways.

“If I do something stupid, which is pretty much the whole time, I hate it. Obviously, they’re only going to put the good stuff in, and the good stuff is us drunk, so all I’m seeing is me drunk and falling down,” she explains. “That’s how I am when I party. But some of the stuff I do is, like, ‘Really, Nicole?’ I look like a freakin’ alcoholic. I’m like, ‘You’re sweating, your makeup is running, you look gross.’ I just look like sh*t.”

According to the self-proclaimed “Princess of Poughkeepsie,” being followed by cameras 24/7 only adds to her desire to let loose.

“It messes with your head. That’s why we go crazy. That’s why we fight with each other. That’s why we drink,” Snooki tells Rolling Stone. “We’re living in a house for two months with that sh*t. We can’t have cellphones, TV, radio or the Internet. If the president died, we’d have no idea. There’s no normalcy. It’s just like prison, with cameras.”

Courtney Cox, 46 Looking Good As Ever!

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

 

It’s wasn’t just the sun heating up the Hawaii set of Cougar Town Wednesday. While filming, Courteney Cox took a dip in a teeny-weeny two-piece

“Being 40-something is fantastic,” she told UsMagazine.com last year. “All the confidence I wish I had when I was 30, now I have it.”

She credits plenty of gym time for her fab physique. “Some people might not want to show the parts of them that aren’t the best but I work out really hard,” says Cox, who has trained with celeb fitness guru Tracy Anderson. “I try really hard.”

It’s paying off. Also taking notice? Costar and rumored beau Brian Van Holt. During the Hawaii shoot, the pair had separate rooms but “Brian went in and out of her suite four times a day,” a source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now).

(A Cox pal insists the two are just friends.)
