The clock is ticking for Jay Leno…Cher and Christina Aguilera reunite for the first time since “Burlesque”…and Amanda Bynes to get a reality show? Kellie Rasberry has the scoop in today’s Showbiz Top 5!
Jimmy Fallon is 8 months away from taking “The Tonight Show” over from Jay Leno. Not only is the show relocating to NYC for Jimmy, it’s getting a new producer and a new name. Get ready for it…..As of February 2014, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” becomes “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” NBC also announced that Amy Ozols will take on the role of producer. She’s been a writer for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” since the show began four years ago. During that time, she’s produced and written some of Jimmy’s most memorable sketches, including the recent “Game of Desks” parody. She also wrote his opening number for the 2010 Emmys, if you can remember that far back.
“The Voice” is about to wrap up another season, crowning a winner on Tuesday night. Even if you haven’t watched all season (like me), you might be interested in tuning into the season finale. Together again for the first time since “Burlesque,” NBC has announced that both Cher and Christina Aguilera will perform on the show. It’s Cher’s first live televised performance in over 10 years. She’ll sing her new song, “Woman’s World.” And Christina will perform “Feel This Moment” with Pitbull.
The LA County Sheriff’s Department is trying to find out who leaked the 911 call that came in the night Paris Jackson attempted suicide. Sgt. Michael Thomas said they don’t release 911 calls, but they are trying to track down which deputy has turned “informant” to certain media outlets. Apparently, this informant has leaked other information that wasn’t intended to be shared because Sgt. Thomas said an internal investigation has been going on for quite a while. He says they do suspect one of their own is taking money in exchange for his or her services. .
At least one person is of the opinion that Amanda Bynes is completely sane. And that person is Drake Bell, most recently of the celebrity diving show, “Splash.” But Drake is probably better known for his Nickelodeon years, when he starred on “Drake & Josh” and “The Amanda Show.” Drake told “OK!” magazine that he talks to Amanda every day and just had lunch with her on Saturday. Drake found her to be “brilliant” and healthy.” But he says he flat-out told her, “Dude, you come off crazy.” According to Drake, she replied, “I know, but I don’t mean to. I just changed the way I look!” Drake explains that she just got a bad haircut, which is why she shaved it off and then got a weave. (Hey! I can’t say a single thing about that!)
It may be hard to grasp the fact that Kate Upton just turned TWENTY-ONE on Monday! She’s only 21??? And “Us Weekly” is reporting that she may have celebrated with her new boyfriend, Maksim Chmerkovskiy! YES!! The Bad Boy of the Ballroom who simply MUST return to “Dancing with the Stars” if they ever expect me to watch again. A source close to Kate told the magazine that she and Maks are technically dating, but they have known each other for a long time. But sources say they were looking very much like a “canoodly” couple when they were having dinner together in NYC Monday night……..
