‘Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars’ Pro Cheryl Burke Predicts Her Main Competition Will Be Apolo Ohno, Shawn Johnson (VIDEO)

Although she’s already won Dancing With the Stars twice, pro Cheryl Burke admits she faces some pretty tough competition as she and partner Emmitt Smith get ready for the upcoming All-Stars season — especially from the athletes.

“Everyone is really good. I’m just happy Emmitt is the only football player on the show,” Burke, 28, revealed at Macy’s 30th Anniversary Passport Glamorama event last Friday. “You have Apolo [Ohno], who is loved by everybody, Shawn [Johnson], and you have other sports players on the show, so I think it’s going to be between them.”

Meanwhile, Burke also admitted that rehearsing with Smith in Texas is going to be “tough.”

“You know, it’s tough, because we are going to be traveling back and forth,” she said. “But we did that six years ago, so I know we can do that.”

In fact, Burke — who won Dancing with Smith in 2006 — says the pros of dancing in the Lone Star state outweigh the cons.

“It’s actually kind of nice to be away from whatever is happening here in L.A.,” she said, “because I can really focus on what I need to do. I’m in total work mode.”

And speaking of work mode, Burke remains as busy as ever. In addition to working her booty off on the dance floor, the California native was just named the new face of Ideology, a new line of activewear.

“It’s actually a great, affordable, line,” she said.

“You can actually wear it to go grocery shopping.”

Blake Lively’s Couture Wedding Dress Details Revealed

Blake Lively never disappoints on the red carpet and walking down the aisle was no different.

The Gossip Girl fashionista wore a one-of-a-kind Marchesa couture bridal ball gown with a hand-draped silk tulle bodice adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery, according to People.

What did her bridesmaids wear?

Her bridesmaids certainly didn’t draw attention away from the blushing bride, but stunned nonetheless. Each lucky lady wore blush silk chiffon Marchesa gowns with crystal embroidered detail.

And of course them women all wore shoes by famed red-sole shoe designer Christian Louboutin, who happens to be one of Lively’s closest friends.

In fact, they are so close, the designer sent the The Town star, 25, his entire Spring collection of heels in February.

“My gosh, (the spring collection) was sent to my house today, and they’re so beautiful. They’re amazing,” she told People.

The groom also donned designer duds on his big day. Ryan Reynolds and his groomsmen wore Burberry suits with custom leather suspenders designed by his friend Christopher Bailey.

The couple also exchanged rings by Lorraine Schwartz.

The 35-year-actor married his girlfriend of one year Mt. Pleasant, S.C., over the weekend.

The two met while filming Green Lantern in 2010. Despite both being attached to significant others at the time — Lively was dating her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley, while Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson — the two sparked in 2011 and were inseparable ever since.


‘Dancing With the Stars’ Judge Carrie Ann Inaba Calls Off Her Engagement

Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba and her fiancé more than a year have called off their engagement, her rep confirmed to Celebuzz.

“They decided early in the summer to break off their engagement and have remained friends,” Inaba’s rep told Celebuzz.

Inaba, 44, revealed last year she and Jesse Sloan, 40, met using online dating site eHarmony.com.

What did she say about meeting him online?

“(Jesse) was the one (eHarmony) sent me. It just felt familiar,” Inaba told Access Hollywood. “In his picture, I felt like I already knew him. He took a risk because he didn’t know what I looked like or anything.

“A few months later, I finally sent a picture. (It was) me in Hawaii with no makeup. We finally went out (on) a supervised date. We went over to my friend’s house. It was awesome!” she added.

In March 2011, Sloan proposed to Inaba on Live! With Regis and Kelly.

The 15th season of Dancing with the Stars begins Sept. 24 on ABC.


Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ Wedding Planner Speaks Out: 7 Latest Developments

It was the wedding no one saw coming, but details of the very romantic nuptials between Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are now emerging.

When the pair tied the knot on Sunday night in Mount Pleasant, SC, only the 60 lucky guests in attendance knew any details about the hush-hush wedding.

However, the woman responsible for the event, wedding planner Tara Guérard, revealed to Celebuzz that the famous couple wanted their ceremony to feel like “home.”

Find out more on the wedding and five new developments after the jump.

1. The wedding theme was both folksy and elegant, the wedding planner revealed.

“Ryan and Blake wanted the event to look and feel like home,” Tara Guérard of Tara Guérard Soirée told Celebuzz. Guerard, who has an office both in Charleston, SC and New York and has even written a book on weddings — Southern Weddings: New Looks from the Old South, said she wanted to ensure the nuptials had a touch of old Southern charm. “With decor and live music, we all created the charm, elegance and magic of times passed,” she said. “It was a truly beautiful evening and celebration.”

2. Bette Midler tweets she didn’t sing at the wedding.

3. Lively’s ex-boyfriend wasn’t invited to the wedding.

Actor Penn Badgley, 25, who dated the starlet from 2007 to 2010 after meeting on the set of Gossip Girl, told People the newlyweds are “pretty spot-on”: ”I actually didn’t know until last night, but I think it’s fantastic,” Badgley told People. “I couldn’t be happier for her.”

4. It was a who’s-who of local celeb guests.

Famed chef from one of Charleston’s most upscale restaurant’s, Peninsula Grill, Graham Dailey and his girlfriend, photographer Brianna Stello were among those in the small audience of close friends and family, according to the Charleston Grit.

5. One of the guests not only attended the nuptials but helped cater as well.

Chef Dailey helped feed the guests at the summer ceremony — which seemed fitting since Lively and Reynolds are big fans of his restaurant.

6. The reception spread was filled with plenty of southern comfort fare.

The VIPs didn’t leave with empty stomachs. The menu for the crowd included 15 quarts of truffle cream corn, a multi-tiered cheese tower, and the Peninsula Grill’s signature coconut cake.

Lively’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-star Alexis Bledel was seen shopping at clothing store RTW Charleston on Monday, Celebuzz was told by a local. Could she have been one of the special guests at the intimate ceremony? 6.

Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds Married: Before She Said ‘I Do,’ Lively Hinted at the Man She Wanted to Wed — Brad Pitt

Before there was Penn Badgley, Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively‘s new hubby Ryan Reynolds, there was Brad Pitt.

Well, at least in the actress’ dreams.

In an interview Lively gave to Cosmopolitan in 2008, Hollywood’s fresh-faced “it” girl was quite candid about the kind of man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with – even joking about marrying Angelina Jolie’s other half.

What kind of man did Lively want to be with forever?

“I’ve kissed just three people in my life, other than stuff that I’ve done for TV or movies. I know—I’m weird!” the 25-year-old confessed to the magazine. “I hope Brad Pitt doesn’t hear this. He’s never going to want to marry me!”

At the time, the blonde beauty had been romantically linked to Gossip Girl co-star Badgely — they split in 2010 — but still had a check list of do’s and don’ts for the perfect man.

“If a guy can play Guitar Hero with me and sit at home and watch the Food Network and read magazines with me, that’s good,” she said. “I don’t think there are many guys that’s fun for. It’s a lot to ask.”


More importantly, for Lively, a guy can’t deny her just desserts.

“Actually, you know what? A guy’s also perfect if he doesn’t try to eat my dessert,” she said.

And even four years ago, the actress was thinking about the future when it came to the man in her life. “I don’t want to date someone just to date someone,” she said. “I want to be with a guy who’s going to better my quality of life and better me.”

Lively and Reynolds secretly tied the knot at the famous Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina over the weekend. Following the ceremony in the plantation’s Cotton Docks, Florence Welch – the lead singer of Florence + the Machine — performed for the newlywed couple. Icon Bette Midler then serenaded wedding guests, who were asked to check their phones at the door before entering the grounds, reported E! News.

Donald Trump Jr.’s Pregnant Wife Vanessa Trump: ‘I’m Nesting Like Crazy’ (EXCLUSIVE)

This is one job the wife of Celebrity Apprentice advisor Donald Trump Jr. won’t be fired from.

Mother-of-three Vanessa Trump — who is expecting number four — has added designer to her growing resume. With a handbag and accessories line having just launched earlier this year, the mommy mogul has it all.

Speaking exclusively to Celebuzz, Trump dished on how she is able to manage being mother and entrepreneur, possible baby names, she and her husband’s perfect date night — plus what ‘The Donald’ is like, as a grandfather.

Click after the jump to read our exclusive one-on-one interview.

Celebuzz: You have three gorgeous kids, a baby on the way, a successful husband, and a thriving career — how do you and Donald Jr. do it all?

Vanessa Trump: We try to make a lot of time for each other. We keep our kids on a great routine and schedule, which really helps with balance. Don and I are very hands on parents, which I believe is very important.

CB: You have another baby on the way — congratulations! This will be number four. How does this pregnancy compare to the first three?

VT: We are very excited to be having baby number four. This pregnancy, of course like every pregnancy, is different. I can definitely vouch for that. But, with this one I seem to have more energy, which is strange since I should be totally exhausted chasing after three kids at home! It has also gone by the fastest.

CB: Your such a pro parent by now. With the baby is due in October, have you gotten the nursery ready and what are your last preparations?

VT: Yes, I’ve been nesting like crazy. I’ve been re-doing all my kids rooms and doing a large clean sweep around the house. It’s amazing how much you can accumulate with a lot of kids. I just started doing my nursery and it won’t be too difficult to finish since I’ve done this three times before and have kept everything.

CB: Do you know if it’s a boy or a girl? Do you have names picked out?

VT: We are keeping it a surprise. It’s more fun that way. We have yet to finalize a name, but have a few options we’re tossing around.

CB: Tell us all about your new handbag and accessories line.

VT: La Poshett is a fine handbag and accessories line that strike the perfect balance between captivating materials, functionality and beautiful designs. All products are handmade from premium materials in New York and represent the culture and style that is at the heart and soul of New York City. They appeal to modern and contemporary women and exemplify a blend of class, elegance and modern allure. I’m very committed and excited about La Poshett as we have endless possibilities.

CB: Being a part of the Trump family, you go to your fair share of high society events. Are you a woman who’s all about the accessories?

VT: I have always been an accessories kind of woman. I love to throw on a pair of jeans, a cute simple top and wear great accessories with it that make me stand out. I think this is a fabulous time to start a collection, and we intend to expand and grow as fast and large as possible.

CB: Your sister-in-law Ivanka Trump also has an accessories line. Is there healthy competition? Do you ever exchange design advice?

VT: My sister-in-law has many accessory companies, all of which are amazing, and I wear her accessories all the time. Ivanka and I are not competitors, what we do is very different. We only wish each other success and offer ideas when necessary.

CB: Do you remember your most memorable – and expensive – accessory you (or your husband) purchased for yourself?

VT: My most expensive accessory would be my wedding ring!

CB: With such busy careers you must take time to spend with each other. What’s the perfect date night?

VT: We love to head up to our country house and just relax, sit outside and enjoy each others company. It’s peaceful and being with each other makes it all the better.

CB: How does your father-in-law Donald Sr. feel about the new addition to the family? He must be the best babysitter.

VT: My father-in-law is very supportive of our new addition. He is an amazing grandfather to our three kids, gives them so much love.

CB: As a new mom-of-four, you know a thing or two about kids. With an accessories line already a success, have you thought about expanding to include a baby collection?

VT: I’ve been giving that some serious thought. Especially having experience in the kiddie department since I will have four under the age of five, it is definitely an option and a route I am considering.

CB: Have you even thought about expanding the family even more to baby number five?

VT: We would never say never. We love having kids.


Carmen Electra Is ‘Flattered’ By Ryan Lochte’s Crush, Admits ‘He’s So Cute’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Ryan Lochte is sending hearts aflutter by revealing his secret celebrity crushes — and one of those lucky ladies has a message for the handsome Olympic swimmer.

“I’m flattered that Ryan Lochte has a crush on me,” Carmen Electra confessed to Celebuzz. “He’s so cute.”

Will Lochte ever get his chance with the brunette bombshell?

Could be. Said Electra: “I am sure our paths will cross soon.”

Still, the gold medalist has fierce competition: 40-year-old Electra has been engaged to guitarist Rob Patterson since 2008.

The model/actress’ response comes just after Lochte, 28, revealed his longtime adoration of her.

“Growing up I’ve always looked at Carmen Electra,” he said during an interview on The Daily Buzz.

She’s not the only lady Lochte is eyeing — when Piers Morgan  asked who he’d choose to spend his life with on a deserted island, Lochte revealed that he’d like to take the place of another famous Ryan.

“I do still have a big crush on Blake Lively… she’s gorgeous,” he said of the Gossip Girl star, who married actor Ryan Reynolds on Sept. 9.

Still, Lochte is mindful of the Avengers star.  “I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes,” he confessed.


Miley Cyrus Launches Her Own Website

Miley Cyrus is going global.

Fans of singer-actress will have much more of her to love, as she launched her own website, mileycyrus.com, on Thursday, Sept. 6, reports E! Online.

Taking on Lady Gaga, who started her own online community in February, the newly-platinum blonde 19-year-old just recently entered the social networking game.

What is her new website all about?

The bride-to-be’s site boasts everything a mega ‘Mifan’ would want to know about the ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ singer, including her Twitter messages, news, music, photos, and even a chance to wear something Miley-inspired.

The rocker is inviting aspiring designers to submit their best graphic artwork for a hoodie to be sold on her site.

Fans also get to see Miley live through videos on the website, including her first post for “Backyard Sessions” along with her band performing her favorite songs like the cover of ‘Lilac Wine’ written by James Shelton.


Honey Boo Boo Takes a Fall in the Ratings

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo may need the Go Go Juice to spike its ratings.

Even though the outrageous reality show earned its TV stripes by beating out the Republican National Convention in viewership, the ratings took a dive when it tied CNN’s coverage of the Democratic National Convention, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The hit TLC series, which premiered a month ago, attracted 2.4 million viewers on Wednesday – a 20 percent drop from the previous week, according to Nielsen ratings.

Why did the ratings drop?

But Boo Boo and and all her redneck ridiculousness can hold back the tears – the episode still had the second-highest audience in its brief TV time on air.

In the key adults 18-49 demographic, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Honey Boo Boo’s numbers fell just over nine percent (a tenth of a point) to a 1.1 adults rating.

In a showdown with Bill Clinton, who addressed the nation, the tyrant toddler’s new spin-off surprisingly was neck-and-neck with CNN’s coverage of the Democratic National Convention — among 18-49 year-olds on cable.


‘Tan Mom’ Patricia Krentcil May Seek ‘Professional Help’ For Anxiety After Bizarre Appearance at New York Club, Says Husband

After staggering on stage while slurring her words during a bizarre appearance at a Manhattan club on Aug. 29, “Tan Mom” Patricia Krentcil could be headed to rehab — to cope with her newfound infamy.

“It might be necessary,” the 44-year-old’s husband Richard Krentcil told Celebuzz, in an exclusive interview.

“I think she’ll see some individual counseling… to get things sorted out.

“Nothing has been decided yet. We will talk about it as a family and she will seek counseling treatment, if she wants.”

The “Tan Mom” husband revealed the mother-of-five has been on a regimen of prescription medication to deal with anxiety after she pled not guilty in May to a child endangerment charge.

The Nutley, N.J. woman — who prosecutors allege took her daughter to a tanning salon and bringing her to a tanning bed, causing a slight sunburn – was the guest of honor at a roast at the XL Cabaret in Manhattan.

Though the night was billed on the club’s website as the “Redhot Media Sensation,” Krentcil was booted out after an alcohol-induced scene on the red carpet and then on stage.

“My daughter was never in that salon,” she declared at one point during the event, adding. “Cha-ching!”

But according to her husband, if Krentcil seeks treatment it would be to help her deal with her newfound national notoriety and not anything more sinsiter.

“This happened very quickly so she’s very sensitive to everything,” said Richard. “She doesn’t understand what’s going on. So she gets nervous and frustrated.”

Richard added that his sun-roasted wife has been on prescription medication, which she took before last week’s event.

“She’s been having extra anxiety and she doesn’t sleep well. She also has stomach issues,” he added.

“Patricia got there really early and everything was fine. She took medication to calm down. She was overtired and very overwhelmed.

“She only had a couple drinks and her anxiety compounded it. But she knows what to take and what not to take.”

He added that the fame has been “hard to handle” for “Tan Mom” to handle.

The husband said, “She knows it was a mistake. I don’t think she realized how her life is under a microscope and how everyone looks at everything. I don’t think that (behavior) will continue though.”

Since making headlines, the suburban mother has been the inspiration for a “tanorexic” doll manufactured and also graced the pages of In Touch, posing without her trademark tan after the magazine challenged her to go without tanning, real or fake, for a month.

Her husband said she has been using a product, The Skin Regime, to heal her skin — and hasn’t been inside a tanning bed in five months, apparently.

“So far she likes the way she looks when she’s not tanning,” Richard told Celebuzz.

“She’ll occasionally do spray tanning on her body, but not on her face. She wants to get her skin back to a healthy level.”


Audrina Patridge on Former ‘The Hills’ Co-Star Lauren Conrad: We Don’t Even Speak (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

Audrina Patridge‘s present doesn’t include much of her past – at least when it comes to her former Hills co-star Lauren Conrad.

“I don’t really talk to Lauren or see her at all,” she confessed to Celebuzz in an exclusive interview.

“I think there was a little of a falling out [between us]. We kind of went our separate ways. The show brought us together and without that show, we all kind of go back to our own thing.”

Patridge does, however, keep in touch with some of her former co-stars.

“I speak with Stephanie [Pratt] every now and then, Kristin [Cavallari], Brody [Jenner] and Justin [Bobby] — I ran into him. That’s it.”

So will the famous California clan ever reunite on the small screen?

Patridge says yes – but not anytime soon.

“Maybe not right now — it’s only been two years,” she said. “G ive it another year or two years, because then everyone will be established. I feel like between two years ago and now, everyone is transitioning and figuring it out.”

The brunette beauty, meanwhile, has definite plans for her future.

“I’m 27 right now so I want to be married before I’m 30,” said Patridge, who’s currently dating BMX-riding Australian hunk Corey Bohan.


And she may even be willing to test the waters of reality TV again; she starred in her own self-titled spin-off show, which was canceled last year after one season.

“I’m not ruling it out. I’m not saying yes; I’m not saying no,” she admitted. “I did it for seven years of my life…you’re still learning and going through experiences and I had to do that on camera. At this point, I know what I want and wouldn’t want. It would depend.”


In the meantime, Patridge is getting back to work.

“I took a little time off and traveled and did my own thing,” she said. “I’m back in LA now and getting into that groove of auditioning, which is really competitive, and doing some hosting classing and modeling gigs. And I have two things we’re going to announce at the end of the year for 2013.”

Any clues?

“They’re really exciting and it has to do with TV,” she teased. “It’ll be fun.”
