LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenaningans
K-Fed To Get 'Blonde' On Broadway?: Despite reports that Kevin Federline was Broadway bound, a rep for Brit's former husband tells Access Hollywood it is "not true" that he will be appearing in "Legally Blonde." Access has learned from a source close to the show, that although K-Fed was offered the part of the UPS guy in the play, he has turned down the role. And Broadway exhales!
"Hills" Star To Pussycat Strut: LC's semi-scripted pal Audrina Patridge is set to take the stage with the Las Vegas Pussycat Dolls at Pure Nightclub in late March, People reports. A source tells the mag that Audrina will be in full Pussycat garb when she introduces the girls. No telling what else Audrina will do, but when Paris Hilton introduced the Pussycat Dolls she danced in a giant champagne glass — try and top that Audrina!
Another Lohan On TV?: Michael Lohan, dad of Lindsay and Ali, is hoping to come to television as a talk show host, Page Six reports. "He wants to do a male version of 'The View' with Stephen Baldwin," a source tells the newspaper. Apparently, Michael doesn't know this was already done with Dick Clark, Mario Lopez and Danny Bonaduce in "The Other Half." It was cancelled after two short seasons.
China Gets "Ugly": In some international television news, "Ugly Betty" has been produced in countries around the world, and now the hit show heading to China, Variety reports. When "Betty" comes to the billions of viewers in China, it will be known as "Invincible Ugly Woman."
A Little More "Super" For Singer: Speaking of super heroes, although some fans were not exactly happy with Bryan Singer's 2006 "Superman Returns," it appears like the director will take another shot at winning over the die-hard Man of Steel fans. Singer tells Empire, "I’m starting to develop a sequel… with the intention of directing it." It sounds like Singer is going to amp up the gore this time around, saying, "There’s really an opportunity to up the threat levels… Clearly there’ll be a body count [laughs]. From frame one, it will be unrelenting terror! All those teenage girls who found the movie and mooned over James Marsden or Brandon? Well, I’m going to wake them up!" We know he's joking, but it would be even cooler if he weren't!
