This has been quite the time for celebrities. These days they are not just actors, but dancers on “Dancing with the Stars.” They aren’t just singers, but business moguls on “Celebrity Apprentice.” They are hosts of shows and Broadway stars and they are always full of drama.
The drama award would most likely go to Chris Brown. During a routine interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” to promote his new release “F.A.M.E.”, he got a little bit more than album coverage. Anchor Robin Roberts probed Brown about his current relationship with Rihanna, his 5-year probation sentence and different restraining orders. After performing a song on the show however, the star stormed to his dressing room where he broke a window and threw furniture, scaring employees and provoking security to show up.
Brown seemed to take Charlie Sheen out of the spotlight even just for a moment. While his phrase of “Duh, Winning” has become a household phrase, Sheen also plans to take the “Two and a Half Men” dispute public. His $100 million lawsuit against Chuck Lorre and Warner Brothers continues.
Another stun was the death of Elizabeth Taylor. The actress who donned the name of legend over the years was 79 when she passed away in Los Angeles on Wednesday, March 23. She had been battling congestive heart failure for six weeks. The actress and brunette bombshell was a two-time Oscar winner, a wife to many and devoted to her foundation to help fight AIDS.
Popular rapper Nate Dogg (Nathaniel Hale), who was best known for his collaborations with Snoop Dogg and Warren G, unexpectedly passed away on March 15. His death is linked to his two previous strokes in 2007 and 2008.
As for reality T.V., “Dancing with the Stars” continues to be one of the most watched shows on television. This season’s contestants range from football player Hines Ward to Kirstie Alley and Karate Kid child star, Ralph Macchio. Tune in every Monday and Tuesday on ABC.
“American Idol” is not far behind with its fanbase. With new judges and now eight talented singers vying for the chance of a lifetime, the show that appears on Wednesdays and Thursdays is a family hit.
Does “American Idol” have a run for its money? Watch new show “The Voice” with hosts Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine as they find the most talented voice with their judges’ chairs facing away from the stage. Carson Daly will host. The show begins April 26.
