LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Too Much Sexy On ‘Dancing’?: Is “Dancing with the Stars” getting a little too hot? According to Radar Online, pro dancer Lacey Schwimmer and Loveline’s “Psycho” Mike Catherwood – who had this week’s lowest scores as a pair – have been told to tone down their chemistry. “The network asked them to tone down the sexual undertones,” a source close to the pair told Radar Online. “They know there is a spark there – everyone is talking about their amazing chemistry.” We have trouble buying that ABC would like the duo to be less sexy, but we’ll have to tune in next week to see if the duo keeps it hot or goes cold.
Haunted “Idol” House?: In more hard to believe reality television news, is the house where this year’s crop of “American Idol” finalists living haunted? According to TMZ, the singers have moved out after a series of eerie events (flickering lights, a spider infestation and a leaky roof) caused the little songbirds to fret. TMZ also reportedly that that multiple contestants claim they saw a bed sheet float down a hallway. No word if the ghost of Season 1 host Brian Dunkleman was under the alleged hovering sheet.
Gwen Helps Out Her Harajuku Girls: Following in the generous steps of Sandra Bullock, Gwen Stefani opened up her pockets for the people in Japan. The singer has donated $1 million to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund. “I’ve been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture. The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years,” Gwen said in a statement on No Doubt’s website. Kudos to Gwen!
The Gays Honor La Liz: Following the death of Elizabeth Taylor on Wednesday, The Abbey in West Hollywood, Calif. honored the screen legend and AIDS activist with a shrine. Dame Elizabeth herself donated the portrait of herself, which hangs above the bar’s cozy fireplace where the shrine is set up. The Abbey – which the actress was known to have frequented quite often in the past five years – will be also donating proceeds from cocktail sales all weekend to her foundation, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. If you’re in the area, stop by and have a drink in honor of Elizabeth, it’s for a good cause and we think she’d approve of raising an Apple-tini in her honor!
