Gossip Roundup: Bristol Palin to Star in Reality Show with Kyle Massey

Bristol Palin Bristol Palin will become the second Palin to try her luck with a reality show. While Bristol Palin herself may be a draw for a certain percentage of viewers, by the sounds of this new show, I doubt many will be watching after reading the synopsis.

The currently-untitled show will chart Bristol Palin’s journey of moving from Wasilla, Alaska to Los Angeles with her 2-year-old son in order to work at a charity. The show will also feature Palin’s former Dancing With the Stars costar, Kyle Massey, and his brother Christopher, whom she will live with. Wondering where that confusion-inducing spin came from? Well, according to the small cable channel BIO (formerly The Biography Channel), who has ordered ten half-hour episodes of the show, the three have become “best friends”.

The show is set to premiere in late 2011, nearly an entire year after her mother’s reality show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska was cancelled.

A BIO executive has said about the show, “[Bristol’s] personal life has been playing out in the media for several years but this will be the first time she’s opening up her real life, with her son and her friends the Massey Brothers.”

What I want to know is why someone who made $262,000 for her work with The Candie’s Foundation in the last year has to have two roommates, even if they are her “best friends.”

In other Bristol Palin news, the picture above has been circulating throughout the past few days and everyone keeps asking, did she get some major plastic surgery done or is her new face the product of some sizeable weight loss?

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver After 25 years of marriage, former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have separated. Shriver has been living away from their Brentwood mansion for the past few weeks and have confirmed the separation in a joint statement that was released Monday, saying:

“This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.”

“We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and center of both of our lives. We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.”

Whitney Houston A representative for Whitney Houston confirmed on Monday that the singer is currently undergoing treatment in an out-patient program for drug and alcohol treatment. It has not been said where Houston is undergoing treatment, but it was confirmed that she had voluntarily entered the program about 10 days ago as part of her “long-standing recovery process.”

Whitney Houston has battled problems with drug addiction for years and this will be her third stint in rehab that we know about. She had previously entered rehab in both 2004 and 2005.

It has also been speculated that Houston is cleansing herself to get ready for a new movie. More breaking news to come?

Alicia Silverstone Alicia Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki’s days-old baby boy has already become a trending topic on Twitter. Silverstone announced the birth of her first son on her website, saying “My husband [Christopher Jarecki] and I welcomed our 7 lb 15 oz baby boy Bear Blu Jarecki into the world on May 5th at 7:50am (PT). We are all three in love!” Within just two hours of this announcement, Bear Blu Jarecki has millions of people tweeting about him, mostly to poke fun at his name. Nevertheless, the amount of hype attained is impressive for an announcement coming from the actress whose most notable role to date is the 90s flick Clueless.

Stanley Tucci Lionsgate announced Monday that Stanley Tucci has been cast as flamboyant talk-show host Caesar Flickerman in the film version of Hunger Games.

This delights me to no end. I will shamelessly go on record and say that I will watch anything if Stanley Tucci is in it. There is just no such thing as too much Stanley Tucci in the world. Plus, when it comes to “flamboyant”, is there an actor out there that can pull that characteristic off like Tucci can? No, no there is not.

Hunger Games is due to be released in theaters next March.
