Plus, J. Lo’s STL connection, Justin Bieber’s paternity case, and a celebrity (and St. Louisan) calls off an engagement. It’s the Schmig for Wednesday, November 16th!
Hope Solo was sent packing on “Dancing With the Stars” last night. That means the final three are J.R. Martinez, Ricki Lake, and Rob Kardashian (Rob – who knew?) The three will compete for the mirror ball trophy next Monday.
Last night they showed video (from Monday) of Hope cursing the judges after she and Maksim received low scores. She was all smiles last night when she was let go, saying, “This competition is one of the toughest competitions I’ve ever been a part of. I’m grateful. This was an amazing opportunity….Instead of winning the mirror-ball trophy I’m going to go and try and win a gold medal at the Summer Olympics.”
NEXT in the Schmig: Jennifer Lopez’s STL connection!
Jennifer Lopez will be performing at the AMAs this weekend, and she’ll have a St. Louis dancer backing her up. Anthony “Redd” Williams is an instructor at COCA, and he’s been Tweeting about rehearsals with J. Lo.
NEXT in the Schmig: Jack and Heather are no more
Heather Locklear and (Washington, MO’s own) Jack Wagner no longer plan to walk down the aisle. No reasons were given, and the only statement was given by Heather’s rep, who said, “Jack and Heather are no longer engaged.”
The two were in “Melrose Place” in the 90s, and started dating in 2007. They announced their engagement in August.
NEXT in the Schmig: Bieber’s baby case dropped
Justin Bieber was all ready to take on Mariah Yeater’s claim that he is her baby daddy, by taking a DNA test once he returned home from Europe. He also said once he proved that he was not the father, he was planning on suing Mariah for making false claims. After his lawyers told Mariah and her lawyers about that, Mariah’s lawyers quit the case, and Mariah quietly dismissed her paternity lawsuit against the singer.
Before he knew the case had been dismissed, Justin said that Selena Gomez was okay with the accusations. He said,
She had to get used to some pretty horrible stuff being said about her on Twitter when we first got together, and since then she has just learned to ignore all the rubbish that is written about us.
Meanwhile, there’s another rumor that Justin is cheating on Selena, after he was spotted dining with a woman in London on Monday night. He flipped off the paps in the pictures, too.
NEXT in the Schmig: Bradley Cooper gives away a prized possession….
Bradley Cooper has a reputation among Hollywood starlets for being a player, but he still has a heart. He’s currently in Philadelphia filming “The Silver Linings Playbook”, and when the temperature dropped, he noticed that the homeless people near the set were more uncomfortable than usual.
He sent an assistant out to buy THOUSANDS of coats, scarves and gloves, which he then handed out. While he was handing out the coats, one homeless man said how much he liked Bradley’s jacket. Despite the fact that Robert DeNiro gave Bradley the jacket, he took the coat off his back and gave it to the homeless man.
UPDATE: Bradley was named “People” magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2011 this morning.
NEXT in the Schmig: The auction of MJ’s belongings is now missing an important item.
The bed where Michael Jackson died is no longer up for auction. Michael’s family asked that the item be removed from the December 17th event, run by Julien’s Auctions.
Dr. Conrad Murray is having a tough time in prison, after being convicted in the death of Michael Jackson. His rep says, “He didn’t think he would be found guilty. He didn’t mentally prepare himself. He is a very positive person and he didn’t prepare for this outcome. When someone isn’t prepared, it hits them doubly hard.”
Dr. Murray is in the medical ward of the jail, and will be sentenced on November 29th.
