Heidi Montag’s New Album Has Left Her Broke

Heidi Montag told Entertainment Weekly that her new album costs her $2 million to make, bankrupting her in the process, but I guess she thinks it was worth it because she thinks the album is really good. As a matter of fact, Heidi says her album, ‘Superficial,’ is as good as Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller.’

“I think people might not see [that 'Superficial' is as good as 'Thriller'] now, because it’s my first album coming out. But I’ve spent as much time-maybe more, even-than Thriller. Every detail was very important to me, because I take this very seriously.

Most artists, it’s not their own money, but I’ve actually gone broke putting every dollar I’ve ever made and my heart and soul into this music.

For me, I have a different appreciation, a different understanding, and a different love of my music and for my album than any other artist possibly could. Because this is my money. This is my gamble. This is my chance.”

Oy vey. If this is true, Heidi may be in for a hard lesson: you can’t buy success with money (as any record company executive could tell you :).

Heidi Montag Wants To Be Bigger Than A Super Star

After some quiet time, Heidi Montag is back with a new album called ‘Superficial.’ (And no, I’m NOT making the title up :)

“I want to make the new 2010 version of a pop star,” she tells PEOPLE. “I want to become a galaxy star.”

Okay. Why did Heidi call her album ‘Superficial’?

“That’s the world I live in and how people think I am but it’s really just the surface. People are just getting to know a whole new Heidi. I put my heart into this music and it’ll really show.”

If Heidi does truly have a talent, it’s getting attention for herself.

You can listen to one of the songs, ‘I’ll Do It’ here. They’re pretty explicit. There are “clean” and “explicit” versions of ‘Superficial’ available, according to Us Weekly.

Somehow, though I don’t think Heidi’s going to become a “new” type of star. Do you?

Lisa Rinna And Harry Hamlin Have New Reality Show

You have to give actors/ former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestants Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin credit: they are going to work for as long as they possibly can (and I say that with admiration).

The real-life married couple are doing a six-episode docudrama (dramatic documentary?) called ‘Harry Loves Rinna.’

Executive producer Jason Carbone (“Run’s House) and TV Land president Larry W. Jones said the show is based on the couple’s relationship, parenting, careers, and entrepreneurial endeavors

One thing I’ve always liked about Lisa and Harry is that they do seem to genuinely love each other, and they’ve been together for a long time! (An impressive feat in Hollywood :)

But I don’t know… I’m trying to cut back on reality TV. How about you? Do you think you’ll tune in?

Court Rules In Favor Of Nadya Suleman (“Octo-Mom”)

Nadya Suleman won this case. Child advocate Paul Peterson apparently went to court seeking a guardian to oversee Nadya’s children’s finances.

The court ruled there did not seem to be a need for a guardian. They also had some choice words for Paul.

“This is an unprecedented, meritless effort by a stranger to a family to seek appointment of a guardian of the estates of the minor children,” the court said. “The petition’s allegations are insufficient to infringe on a parent’s civil rights or to rebut the presumption under California law that a parent is competent to manage the finances of his or her children.

“Petersen has never met and never had any contact with Suleman, her children, or any member of her family. All the information presented in the petition for appointment of a guardian has come from television or the Internet…”

Now, Paul (and Gloria Allred- you knew she was somewhere behind this, didn’t you?) are still claiming a legal victory of sorts. Apparently, a previous court ruling established the precedent that anyone (even a non-relative) could go to court and seek guardianship over children, even if they didn’t get it this time.

Hmmm… on one hand, if parents are not acting in their kids’ best interests, it will be easier for someone to intervene. Yet I can also see cases where this could be abused (like if an agent/manager of a child actor had less, um, benign reasons for wanting guardianship).

Kim Kardashian Can’t Get Rid Of Her Cellulite

Kim Kardashian slimmed down recently as part of her role as a spokesperson for Quick Trim, but one thing she can’t quite get rid of is her cellulite. Don’t we all know this story?

I don’t have a problem telling people, ‘Hey, look, I have cellulite!’” Kardashian, 29, declared in a radio interview Friday on Atlanta’s Q100. “I do everything I can in my power to fix it. I never said cellulite was cute,” the reality star added. “But I have it. I embrace it, I’m okay with it!”

What I’ve always heard is that weight loss (sadly) won’t do anything about cellulite, so I guess acceptance is the best (only) thing we can do, right? Kim says she thinks this admission makes her more “relatable.”

Does you feel you can better relate to Kim now?

Keyshia Cole Is Engaged And Pregnant

Singer and reality TV star Keyshia Cole has a lot going on in her life right now! She announced that she is engaged to Cleveland Cavaliers player Daniel Gibson. She also announced they are expecting their first child next spring.

Keyshia also announced that the drama seen her TV show ‘Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is’ with her family is real and now she has cut off all contact with them.

“Now that I am becoming a mom my passion for having a loving and peaceful home for my child is my #1 priority. It’s very important to both Daniel and I … the stress that my family is giving me with their constant false reports is not healthy and it’s not what I need at this time in my life.”

Goodness. I guess “Congratulations” is still in order. Hopefully everything will work out for the best.

Cast Of Jersey Shore Chat About Plastic Surgery And More

The cast of MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ sat down to talk with Life & Style about some of the things that weren’t talked about on the show. The girls dished about plastic surgery:

“I’ve had a breast augmentation,” JWoww says. “I bought it for myself as a birthday present a few months before I turned 21. I didn’t really need to go bigger, but I wanted them. I’m really happy with them now.”

She’s even inspired Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) to consider going under the knife:

“I keep staring at JWoww’s boobs and I’m like, ‘I want a boob lift,’” Snooki says. “I’m definitely looking into a lift.”

Snooki admits to being VERY comfortable in front of cameras – maybe a bit too much. She admits to filming past “hookups” before her stint on Jersey Shore! But she says she wouldn’t sell the tapes.

“I don’t want people to watch me doing that,” she says. “It’s a private thing.”

She just might change her mind when she hears this:

“A sex tape starring Snooki could fetch between $1 million and $3 million,” Steven Hirsch, founder of porn company Vivid Entertainment, tells Life & Style. “It could be considerably more.”

Ronnie and Sammi share that a trip down the aisle isn’t out of the question for them:

“I love being with her,” Ronnie says. “I would do anything for her. It’s taken me a long time to find this connection. I’m going to see where it takes me.”

Sammi had this to say about her future with Ronnie:

“I definitely feel like Ronnie would be a good husband and father,” she tells Life & Style.

I read a rumor that MTV was scouting new places for the cast to film. My question is – if they don’t film in Jersey – will they still call it Jersey Shore? Wouldn’t make much sense for them to be in another state, would it? What do you think?
