Jon Gosselin’s got another new girlfriend on his arm, and this time they’ve been traipsing around St. Tropez, France on luxury yachts and mingling with celebrity fashion designers. Jon Gosselin is said to be meeting with Christian Augidier in the hopes of developing a children’s fashion line with the designer.

Jon’s latest squeeze is 22 year old Hailey Glassman, who is said to have a love of partying, which seems to be the 31 year old father of 8’s type these days since splitting with wife Kate Gosselin. The couple met through Hailey Glassman’s father, the plastic surgeon who was responsible for completing Kate Gosselin’s tummy tack after the birth of her sextuplets. Talk about drama!

As Jon Gosselin continues his rotation of rebound girls, fans of Jon & Kate Plus 8 are wondering if any of these will make it to the show, and how seeing their dad with a whole cavalry of young women not long after separating from their mother is affecting the Gosselin children.

Rumor has at that Emmy Award winning Chandra Wilson, from Grey’s Anatomy, will be stepping out from in front of the camera to direct an upcoming episode on Season 6 of the hit show, which airs on CTV in Canada.

While there’s been no word yet on when this episode will begin filming, what the focus topic will be, or when it will be airing during the upcoming season, there’s no doubting that as an award winning actress with talent and dedication, any episode that has her in the Director’s chair is sure to be a hit.

And, if it’s not enough that one Grey’s Anatomy cast member is planning on directing an upcoming episode for Grey’s Anatomy’s 6th season, there are rumors that another hit star, whose name as yet to be confirmed or released, is in negotiation to follow in their co-stars footsteps.

Only time will tell if these Grey’s Anatomy alum are better off I front of, or behind the camera.

This week rumors have been circulating, that perhaps Derek and Meredith will finally get to tie the knot, legally, on the highly anticipated season 6 premier of Grey’s Anatomy. This rumor started as Grey’s Anatomy released a casting call for next season’s minor guest stars, including a Catholic Priest in his 60s.

The show’s attempt to cast, began gossip that perhaps a priest would be needed for a wedding ceremony, however, according to Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly today, there will be a priest cast, but he will be present for much less celebratory purposes.

Q: Your frenemy reported that there will be a priest in the Grey’s Anatomy premiere and that someone may be getting marred. Care to comment?
A: Yes, there will be a priest cast on the show, but no, he won’t be marrying anyone off. His presence is needed for something far less celebratory.
As we are already aware that TR Knight will not be returning for another season, and season 5 left off with George O’Malley hanging in limbo, I think it’s fair to say that one of the Grey’s Anatomy veterans is about to lose his fight.

As Jon & Kate Plus 8 are in the process of a potentially messy divorce, there are two more members of the family who’s fate has yet to be determined – the couple’s two German Sheppard dogs.

Already, the couple has been fielding backlash about the potential mistreatment of their pets after Jon made the following statement to the press: “those kids beat them up, climb on them, pull their tails, bite at them, drag them around and everything you can imagine not to do to an animal, they’ve done.” After the couple fell under investigation by the Humane Society, Gosselin recanted his statement in a new release. “I’d like to set the record straight. We understand the responsibilities of being good dog owners. Whenever my kids are with Shoka and Nala, everyone is carefully supervised to ensure that no one – dog or child – is injured. Shoka and Nala are loyal companions who we consider members of our family. We would never do anything to hurt them, and treat them with the respect and love that they deserve.”

But while Jon Gosselin claims that their dogs a member of their family, it’s been made fairy clear that Kate Gosselin doesn’t feel the same way. So, with their divorce already in motion, will the dogs get lost in the shuffle?

After last night’s Much Music Video Awards aired live from Toronto, an entirely different type of issue is making news that has nothing to do with the evening’s hosts, performances or category winners. According to reports, celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton was assaulted by a manager for Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am.

After an after party for the MMVA’s, Perez Hilton logged onto his Twitter account claiming that he had been assaulted by Will.i.am following a series of disputes earlier in the night when Fergie asked the blogger to step making fun of their band and its members on his website. Apparently, the Black Eyed Peas and their entourage ran into Perez at a nightclub hosting an MMVA after party, and in response to the heated discussions, manager for Will.i.am punched Perez in the face multiple times. In response to this altercation, police were apparently called and the manager was arrested. Since then Will.i.am and Perez Hilton have both posted video responses on their websites addressing what happened and telling their side of the story.

While the Much Music Video Awards did seem to draw a decent guest list this year, it’s a little sad that the Canadian event will finally make news South of the border, and it’s because of a celebrity fight.

Viewers of Jon & Kate Plus 8 know, that unless they’ve been living with their head under a rock, the show’s leading man and lady are struggling with their relationship, and this week’s promotional clips by TLC for the next show allude that they might be finally splitting up. The brief clip shows previous portions of the show where Jon & Kate are engaging in tense interactions or avoiding each other altogether; and the end of the promotional piece says that Jon and Kate are about to reveal some life changing news on Monday’s episode.

During a voice over by Kate during the clip, she reveals that “Recently we’ve made some life-changing decisions. Decisions that will affect every member of our family, ones we hope that will bring each of us some peace.” While the obvious speculation is that Jon and Kate are splitting up, it’s also possible that they’re taking some time off to work on their marriage and putting their TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8 behind them…that is, if they can get out of their network contract. Or maybe, this is all just another publicity stunt to increase ratings that have been declining since season 5 of Jon & Kate Plus 8 premiered a few weeks ago, and viewers will tune in only to discover that Jon and Kate will be going into therapy, or getting rid of their newly acquired dogs, or sending their children to private school.

What do you think Monday’s big announcement will be on Jon & Kate Plus 8?

A new episode of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here as airing as I write, but regardless of what goes on, we already know the outcome that already has everyone talking. It probably won’t come as a big surprise to you, but Heidi and Spencer are about to leave…again.

In tonight’s episode, Heidi and Spencer have just come back to the celebrity camp after spending a night in the locked room. But, they won’t be there for long. Apparently, Heidi Montag/Pratt is about to be taken to hospital, and as reported by the media, it’s due to a stomach ulcer. Of course, we’re Heidi and Spencer are involved, the drama isn’t about to stop there. While others may choose to return to the show or return home, Heidi and Spencer are blaming the show for the illness and even threatening to sue NBC. Why? Because the couple was locked in a scary room with nothing but rice and beans to eat for 24 hours.

My guess, they won’t be successful in any lawsuit, as they must have signed some kind of waver when joining the show. However, after this stunt, NBC’s probably not about to welcome them back with open arms.

 

According to E! Online, George O’Malley will not be a returning character on next season of Grey’s Anatomy. While the cliff-hanger season finale left George flat lining, viewers had hope that Seattle Grace doctors might help the character make a miracle recovery with medical intervention – however, according to these reports, it’s time that we stop getting our hopes up.

There have been rumors for quite some time that T.R. Knight has wanted out of his Grey’s Anatomy contract, which creator Shonda Rhimes recently denied; however, with his declining screen time on the show any dissatisfaction with his role would not be surprising.

Naturally, ABC representatives have refused to comment on these rumors – which would spoil one of the most dramatic plotlines that viewers have encountered for some time watching the hit show that airs on CTV in Canada.

I think it goes without saying that you’ll have to tune into next season’s premier episode in order to get some closure on plotlines which have left characters played by T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl in limbo, hanging somewhere between life and death.

As season 5 of Jon & Kate Plus 8 approaches, premiering tonight at 9pm EST on TLC, naturally the rumor mill is full of speculation on what’s really going on behind the scenes of the hit show. Some sources claim that these rumors are all another publicity stunt to boost ratings for the new season of TLC (which is expected to bring in record breaking ratings for TLC); others claim that the famous, feuding couple are only pretending to be mending their relationship; and others, think something else altogether.

Whatever the real story is, we may find out tonight, but chances are we won’t. Whether Jon & Kate as only pretending to be fighting to boost their shows ratings, or pulling a publicity stunt with the hopes of closing a movie or book deal about parenting and maintaining a relationship while in the public eye, the fabricated plot line will probably continue throughout the season. Perhaps Jon & Kate’s marital problems are real; but we’re not likely to find out if they’re only staying together for the sake of the show, because we don’t get to see what happens when the cameras are off.

What we do know about tonight’s season premier is that Jon & Kate film their interview room segments separately, which might just take away from their characteristic banter that makes the show so entertaining. But how much insight into the marital problems we will see as viewers has yet to be determined, as the Gosselins plan a fifth birthday party for the sextuplets.

Tune in tomorrow for a recap of tonight’s Jon & Kate Plus 8 season premier on TLC, there’s sure to be some drama!

 

With a great deal of speculation circulating around the internet regarding the fate of two major Grey’s Anatomy characters, who found themselves in the fight of their lives on last week’s season finale. While unfortunately, we will have to wait until September, when the new season of Grey’s Anatomy airs to find out for sure who will live, or who will die; Shonda Rhimes and EW’s Michael Ausiello have both weighed in on the fates of these two popular Grey’s Anatomy characters.

During a recent interview with TV guide, Shonda Rhimes certainly didn’t give away the results of the Grey’s season finale cliffhanger that will ensure viewers tune into the next season, but she did give some vague insight regarding these shocking Grey’s Anatomy plotlines. When asked whether Izzie or George will live to see another season of the show, Rhimes responded, stating “We will definitely answer those questions in the fall. As with anyone you come to love, you don’t want to see them die, but it’s all part of the circle of life.” But naturally, not willing to commit to a statement that alludes one or both of the characters might die, Rhimes adds, “there are some top-notch doctors at Seattle Grace and although there may not be miracles, there could be some good medicine.”

While EW’s Michael Ausiello is usually a wealth of information when it comes to what to expect on Grey’s Anatomy, his weigh in on the fates of Izzie and George, are surprisingly less helpful than that of the show’s vague creator.  When asked the question that’s on every Grey’s Anatomy fan’s mind, Ausiello speculated very little.
Q: OMG. Grey’s finale. George or Izzie? What’s the deal?
A: My guess? One will live, another will die.
So what’s your guess? I would have to agree with Michael Ausiello on this one; one of the actors that portray these characters with unknown fates will be out when Grey’s Anatomy begins next season. But, I think that if it’s TR Knight who will be taking hiatus (whether permanent or temporary) from filming with the popular TV show; another actor will fill his role since George’s disfigurement has rendered him unrecognizable.

How would you speculate about the fates of George and Izzie?
