Khloe, Kourtney & Kim Kardashian, 'America's Next Top Model'It was Kardashians all over the place on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 9PM ET on The CW) as the sisters showed up with their new fashion line from Sears and a challenge for the contestants. They wanted to see the girls strut their own style, while wearing Kardashian style.

The winner got a complete Kardashian outfit to take home, which they were incredibly excited about. And, as it turns out, two of the contestants got the new look because they tied for the win. Apparently, these two were so dynamic, the sisters simply couldn't decide.

La Toya Jackson Thinks There Was a Conspiracy To Kill Michael, But Won't Give Any Details on 'The View' (VIDEO)

La Toya JAckson talks about her Michael Jackson conspiracy theory on 'The View'Dr. Conrad Murray is currently awaiting trial on involuntary manslaughter charges stemming from Michael Jackson's fatal propofol overdose. According to Jackson's sister La Toya Thursday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), that's just the tip of the conspiracy theory iceberg. La Toya believes there was a conspiracy to kill Michael and take his publishing royalties, and added that she knew more, but didn't want to reveal it just yet.

La Toya recounted conversations she had with Michael during which he told her people were out to murder him. "He told me over and over and over," said La Toya. "When he first told me, 'La Toya, they're going to kill me,' I said, 'Who Michael?' You're Michael Jackson. No one in their right mind would ever think of doing something like this to you. That's what you think. He says, 'No, but you don't understand.' And then I saw how serious he was."

La Toya Jackson's Strange, Confusing 'Today' Interview (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Jun 21st 2011 12:35PM

La Toya Jackson sits down with Matt Lauer on 'Today.'It's been at least a month since La Toya Jackson became the only contestant on the 'Celebrity Apprentice' to be fired, re-hired and then promptly re-fired. Anxious to return to the spotlight, Jackson sat down with Matt Lauer Monday on 'Today' (7 AM ET, weekdays on NBC) for a bizarre interview filled with confusing statements and contradictions that gave off more smoke than fire.

Jackson was there to talk about her recent book 'Starting Over,' in which she claims to investigate Michael's death and identify his true killer. In the book, she posits that Michael's death was a conspiracy and that Dr. Conrad Murray is merely a fall guy. But when Matt Lauer pressed her on why the book doesn't name anyone or offer any evidence about that, Jackson could only respond with a hollow, "If you read the book you'll understand."

'The Celebrity Apprentice' Season 4, Episode 9 Recap

['The Celebrity Apprentice' - 'Shear Madness']

Man, oh, man, it was a wild night on the 'The Celebrity Apprentice.'

Last week's questionable firing of La Toya Jackson left a bad taste in my mouth, as loudmouth NeNe Leakes and shrewd strategist Star Jones teamed together and threw her under the bus to save their own skins. She wound up doing the elevator ride of shame down to the street after being kicked to the curb.

But, apparently, La Toya decided she wasn't going out like that after all, leading to one of the most shocking twists ever in the series' history.

Why Donald Trump Wants Star Jones to Go Far on 'The Celebrity Apprentice'

'The Celebrity Apprentice' women's team presents Trump hotel campaign
This is far from the first time I've written these words, but I'm going to write them again: 'The Apprentice' is a sham of a competition, and it's because Donald Trump is the only one who determines who stays and who goes.

It's not like other competition shows, where a panel of judges have to come to some sort of consensus, or a voting show where the person who gets the fewest phoned-in, online and text votes goes home. No, the sorta-kinda-almost 2012 presidential candidate is the lone arbiter of whom gets fired, and he has often used weird rationales to fire someone who didn't necessarily deserve it, especially on the celebrity edition of the show (just ask Khloe Kardashian).

Trump used one of those rationales last night to fire La Toya Jackson. It was almost predictable. Even though Star Jones fumbled badly as the losing team's leader in last night's task, there was no way in hell she was ever going home. Why? Because Trump knows a good player when he sees one.

The 'Celebrity Apprentice' Premiere Was a Ball of Crazy ... and Things Are Just Going to Get Crazier

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 7th 2011 2:30PM
If Donald Trump and Mark Burnett's aim in putting together the fourth 'Celebrity Apprentice' cast was to up the show's profile, then they've done a great job of it.

The cast is such a big ball of crazy that NBC's promos -- and Trump himself in interviews -- have been promoting that fact, emphasizing the screaming matches with Patsy Cline's classic song 'Crazy' as the soundtrack.

But from the first minute of the premiere, the nuttiness factor was amped up a few notches, and not just because Gary Busey talked in a language only Charlie Sheen could understand. By the end of the first task, the entire men's team -- Backbone -- already hated Richard Hatch, who was the project manager. And on the women's side, Lisa Rinna was already at odds with Star Jones, who was the project manager for the team, who called themselves ASAP.

As screwy as things got in the first week, things are only going to get worse, and there are a few glaring clues that this is going to be a heck of a ride:

La Toya Jackson, Star Jones and Mark McGrath to Battle it Out on 'Celebrity Apprentice'

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 12th 2010 10:00AM
Star JonesWhen the new season of 'Celebrity Apprentice' starts up, expect to see many familiar TV faces. According to Entertainment Weekly, La Toya Jackson, Star Jones and Mark McGrath will be part of the cast vying for cash for their respective charities.

Jackson, sister of pop stars Michael and Janet, is no stranger to reality TV. She appeared in CBS's 'Armed & Famous' while training to become a reserve police officer and was a housemate on the UK's 'Celebrity Big Brother.'

McGrath, the lead singer of Sugar Ray, co-hosted 'Extra,' appeared on 'American Idol' and judged 'Girlicious,' and is currently the host of 'Don't Forget the Lyrics.'

Jones, most famous for her stint on 'The View,' was last seen on an episode of 'Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?'

VH1 nabs Armed & Famous

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 30th 2007 8:27PM
erik estradaCBS dumped Armed & Famous this week after airing four episodes, but now it's going where it belongs: VH1. The 'reality' series stars has-been and pseudo-celebrities like Jack Osbourne, Wee Man, La Toya Jackson, Erik Estrada and Trish Stratus. They all become cadets and go out on the road with real cops in Muncie, Indiana (which commenters tell me isn't that small of a town after all).

VH1 will air a marathon of Armed & Famous on Saturday, topped off with a new episode (#5) at 9 pm. VH1 says it doesn't actually have episodes 6 & 7 but it will air them if the producers get them finished. And the cable network is not ruling out a second season of the series.

Goodbye Armed & Famous

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 29th 2007 8:29AM
erik estradaWell, Adam called it. CBS has pulled Armed & Famous off the air, after four episodes (there have already been four episodes?!?). The series raked in a measly 1.4 rating during its most recent episode on January 24th, just barely beating The CW's Beauty and the Geek. That final rating was less than half the ratings of the premiere, which got a 2.9. There are three more episodes of the show and so far there's no indication from the network whether they will be burned off on air. Don't be surprised if they show up on Innertube, though.

Armed & Famous was pretty much doomed from the start. Even though it got a bit of press, it was still a 'reality' show about a bunch of not-so-famous people who become cops in a rural Indiana town. Pseudo-celebrities Erik Estrada, Jack Osbourne, La Toya Jackson, Wee Man and some blonde chick apparently weren't interesting enough to grab ratings. Duh.

Celebrities become officers in new reality show

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 28th 2006 4:35PM
jack osbourne; wee manSome b-list celebrities are working hard in Indiana right now on a celeb-reality show for CBS. Erik Estrada, Jack Osbourne, Wee Man, Trish Stratus, and La Toya Jackson are training to be reserve police officers in Muncie, Indiana. The celebrities will be trained like other police officers, which also means book-learnin' about the constitution and laws. Oh, and they'll be carrying guns when they respond to emergency calls from the public (with another, real officer).

That sounds safe. I'm sure nothing will go wrong. La Toya Jackson seems like the stable kind of person you want carrying a badge and a loaded weapon. No word yet on when the reality series will air, but it sure does sound like summer content.
