Kelly Clarkson: National Anthem at Indy 500!

Oh how I used to love Kelly Clarkson.  She was the first American Idol candidate that I voted for, and the first and only American Idol contestant that I’ve seen in concert.  Clarkson’s voice won me over back in 2002 and I’ve tried to support her through the years by buying her records.

After her third album flopped, Clarkson disappeared for almost 2-2.5 years…licking her wounds and finding a new game plan I’m sure…

Kelly sang the National Anthem at the Indie 500 with Seal this past weekend and she sang beautifully.  I really hope that this means she’ll be debuting a fourth album that’s as awesome as the first two!

xoxo Kelly~

Teresa Guidice Blames Fame For Family Troubles

From Bricks and Stones:Teresa Guidice Blames Fame For Family TroublesReal Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice covers InTouch Weekly with her four daughters – Gia, 10, Gabriella, 7, Milania, 6, and Audriana, 2. The reality mom says fame has nearly destroyed her family and her marriage, and now that her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa have joined the show, it’s only gotten worse.

In the exclusive interview, Teresa claims that her brother, Joe, and his wife, Melissa, always wanted the fame that she achieved when she became a Real Housewife. Not wanting to “stoop down to Melissa’s level” and call them “jealous,” Giudice says that she and her brother were once best of friends, and is hurt by reports that he’s urging his wife to speak out against her in the public, simply for the media attention.

“I’m so appalled that they’re doing this just to be on TV,” says Teresa. “You really shouldn’t air your dirty laundry on TV, and my brother and his wife are making it so much worse for us all.”

Terrible News: Giants’ Buster Posey Likely Out for the 2011 Season

Do you think the Giants will be in the world series again?  Dear God, I hope so!!  But with Buster Posey’s crazy injury during yesterday’s game…  Can Lincecum , Cain, Wilson and the other pitchers carry out the season?

From The Giants Cove:

The excitment of scoring four runs in the bottom of the 9th to tie the Florida Marlins in the Wednesday May 25th game disappeared instantly for the San Francisco Giants after a horrific 12th inning collision at home plate that will cost Giants catcher Buster Posey the rest of the 2011 season.

With Florida leading 6-2 in the 9th, the Giants scored 4 runs to tie the game. The scored remained 6-6 until the top of the 12th inning, when Marlin’s outfielder Scott Cousins attempted to score from third base on a Emilio Bonifacio fly.

Giants right fielder Nate Schierholtz caught the ball and rifiled a throw to home plate to nail Cousins. The ball appeared to get to Posey an instant before Cousins barreled into the Giants’ catcher to dislodge the ball. The collision bent Posey backwards on his ankles, and he was obviously seriously injured as he was assisted off the field by team trainers.

Cousins’ run held up as Florida got three quick outs in the bottom of the 12th to win the game 7-6.

While the Giants scheduled Posey for a series of medical tests Thursday morning, word leaked out from several players and reporters that Posey’s left leg was broken and he had also suffered torn ligaments. He will miss the rest of the season and will face a long rehab program to get back to the Major Leagues.

Scott Cousin’s decision to charge into Posey brings up an ongoing MLB debate about hard contact plays at home plate. Giants Manager Bruce Bochy had previously called for additional rule protections for catchers who are defenseless as they attempt to catch the ball while a runner is about to administer a full tilt body slam. Giants’ broadcaster Duane Kuiper also stated that baseball must change their rules to prevent serious injuries to catchers during violent collisions at home plate.

The National Football League has taken strict action in recent years to stop helmet to helmet hits and unimpeded body slams. Violations include assessments against NFL teams during games and hefty individual fines against violating players.

Posey was named the National League Rookie of the Year in 2010, and was considered San Francisco’s team leader as they went on to win the 2010 World Series.

Khloe Kardashian: Kim’s Wedding Will Be “Royal Wedding No. 2”

I wonder if Khloe and Kourtney are feeling tingles of envy for the wedding that’s going to happen this year (or next) for Kim and Kris.  I mean, her ring is significantly bigger than Khloe’s and she’s about to have the biggest wedding of the century!

ANNNDD you KNOW Kris Jenner is going to capitalize on this entire event and make sure that People or UsWeekly pay a fortune for the exclusive rights to the pictures.

Oh dear…this is going to be crazy but I can’t wait to see the details of the wedding unfold (obviously on the show and in magazines!).

More details from UsWeekly:

// <!–


Step aside, William and Kate: The queen of reality TV is getting hitched, and it’s going to be huge.

Hours after news broke of Kim Kardashian‘s engagement to Kris Humphries after about six months of dating, her little sister Khloe predicted a monstrous, royal bash for her sister. 30.

“It’s going to be royal wedding number two,” Khloe, 26, told E! News Wednesday. “I could only imagine Kim having the hugest wedding.”

Khloe, of course, has been happily married to Lamar Odom for about a year and a half, and she knows that her sister has already dealt with one agonizing decision: Her maid of honor.

She said Kim, 30, will do what she did at her nuptials and give both Khloe and Kourtney, 32, the special title. “I made both of them my maid of honor,” Khloe said. “You can’t choose.”

One major difference between Kim and Khloe’s special day? Mom Kris Jenner told Us Weekly: “She’s giving me more than nine days to plan a wedding like Khloe so fabulously did!”

Adder Jenner, “Kim will have more to do with this one. She has time. She’s going to plan it out. She has a definite, specific thing that she has in her mind I’m sure. It’s been so fast and furious that she hasn’t discussed it with us.”

“Kim has always been a hopeless romantic,” Khloe told Us. “She thinks she is a Disney character, like everything is a great love story. It’s so sweet and cute. It’s just Kim. I feel like she is very much in love with love.”

Idol’s Lauren Alaina: “I Knew in My Heart” Scotty Would Win

When American Idol first aired this season, I completely picked out these two as my fave~~~ but in the end…I was disappointed that Scotty won and not Lauren.  I thought Lauren was a much more versatile singer than Scotty and I loved how she grew over the season.  Her vocals improved, her comfort level on stage sky rocketed and we saw Lauren blossom with our very own eyes in the morning.

OH WELL…I know Lauren will make it big.  Congrats Scotty!

From UsWeekly:

Lauren Alaina‘s not about to be a sore loser.

Although many (including Kelly Clarkson) pegged her as the season-10 winner of American Idol, the singer wound up in the runner-up spot as fellow country crooner Scotty McCreery took the prize on Wednesday’s finale.

“You would expect that I felt disappointed, but I didn’t,” Alaina, 16, told Us Weekly after the show. McCreery, 17, won the life-changing honor after a record 122 million viewer votes were cast. On Tuesday’s performance show, judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler suggested Alaina deserved the crown.

No hard feelings at all, Alaina told Us. “Scotty’s my best friend and we went through this whole process together…I knew it in my heart and I’m just so proud of him and I’m proud I got second place to him, it’s just unbelievable.”

Idol fans were also abuzz about the duo’s kiss — on the lips — and the intimate convo after McCreery’s name was called. “I said ‘I told you so’ and ‘I love you’,” Alaina revealed. “He said ‘I love you too’ and I said ‘go get ’em’!”

She also shrugged off Tuesday’s night’s laryngitis drama. “Never once did it go through my mind that I wasn’t going to sing,” she said. “Even if I sounded like someone was holding onto my throat I was going to go out there.”

Next up, the teen plans to move to Nashville and work on her debut country album. “Nashville is the place for me!”

About that kiss…?

“Ask Scotty!” she said, laughing.

McCreery’s explanation: “She told me she was going to do that before the show,” the champ told Us. “It’s all fun and games, she’s just a sweetheart!”
