Dancing With the Stars winner for Game Show Network?
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon scowl at the pop-culture world unearths a new home for happy feet, verbal scuds from the Kardashian camp and the mystery music video.
PRICE IS RIGHT: That’s a game show, of course. This? Hmmmm. Per Deadline, “Game Show Network has acquired the exclusive off-network rights to ABC’s hit reality series Dancing With The Stars from Disney-ABC Domestic Television. GSN has picked up seasons 4 through the current 13, which wraps tonight on ABC, and will begin airing them in January 2012.” http://bit.ly/syByEO
HE ALSO SNORED: So, you know, there’s no way this was strategically planted. About the reasons for her divorce from Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian has friends telling Us Weekly mean things about her ex. "He belittled her in front of people," one insider tells Us. "He'd call her stupid. It was truly sickening. The source adds that Humphries resented his wife's fame and fortune. "He tried to control Kim by bringing her down...He would say truly terrible things. One time, he said she had no talent and her fame wouldn't last." He even took exception to her world-famous posterior, calling her "fat ass," the source says.” http://bit.ly/sfKaQD
YOU LIE!: But this wasn’t Joe Wilson, it was the Roots, per the AP, “Jimmy Fallon's house band the Roots didn't have a warm welcome for Republican presidential contender Michele Bachmann when she appeared on the NBC show early Tuesday. As Bachmann strode on to the stage at Fallon's "Late Night," the show's band played a snippet of a 1985 Fishbone song called "Lyin' Ass B----." http://apne.ws/skljlR
WHAT? Again, what? Per the Los Angeles Times, “Sylvester Stallone is getting back in the ring with Rocky Balboa one more time -- but not as a star. The actor is co-producing "Rocky: The Musical," based on the Oscar-winning 1976 movie that launched his career.” http://lat.ms/uecuiO
BURNING CALORIES: Cheers, per People, “Two months after revealing her new, 100 lbs.-lighter figure, Kirstie Alley is looking svelte and fabulous as ever, despite the pitfalls that come after losing weight. "Maintenance probably is the hardest part," Alley, 60, told PEOPLE at last night's Dancing with the Stars. Her solution? Dancing. "I dance almost every day," says Alley." http://bit.ly/trueCk
YOUR MOVE: But someone seems to have pulled away from the chess board, per TMZ, “The woman who claimed to be Justin Bieber's baby mama is running for the hills, because we've learned neither she nor her lawyer have made ANY attempt to contact Justin's team ... to compare his DNA with her baby's. We broke the story ... Justin took a DNA test in New Jersey last Friday, and sources connected with the singer say he's chomping at the bit ... waiting for Mariah Yeater to ante up her baby's DNA results. But so far ... crickets.” http://bit.ly/vmFgyp
LET’S BE CAREFUL OUT THERE: Noted character actor Michael Conrad died on this date in 1983. He’s probably best known for his television role as Sgt. Phil Esterhaus on “Hill Street Blues.” He died of cancer during the fourth season of production. The following clip, for those of a certain age, still rings poignant. http://bit.ly/sFy1ha
GOOD READ: It’s a well-researched piece by the AP on how Salzburg, Austria has finally -- but grudgingly – embraced the Sound of Music musical. http://apne.ws/svLQJM
AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music video. http://bit.ly/XnYVP
