Did dancer Mark Ballas get American Idol singer Pia Toscano on DWTS? Hollywood Gossip! Did Mark Ballas secretly help ex American Idol contestant Pia Toscano get a gig singing on DWTS? [Apr. 20] Dancer Mark Ballas and Disney princess Chelsea Kane are keeping up with the rankings on Dancing with the Stars. Sources close to the production crew on DWTS staff are wondering if Ballas pulled some strings to to get the American Idol favorite onto Dancing with the Stars. After Pia introduced herself to the dance pro by way of a mutual acquaintance of wrestling star Chris Jericho, who also is a competitor on DWTS. Ballas says, no, though. Even thought judge favorite Pia Toscano was voted off of American Idol, she is still a hot commodity in Hollywood social circles as a new voice and pretty face, and the hot male celebrity dance pro took note. Apparently, that Pia Toscano will be performing next week on Dancing with the Stars while Ballas dances with Karina Smirnoff on the April 26 results episode thanks to a romantic spark between Pia and Mark. But he denies being anything more than just friends and claims he has zero influence with the producers decisions who to bring on the show as musical guests. Ummm... yeah. Sure he doesn't have any pull... and of course they are just friends... and no WAY the DWTS producers would ever think of capitalizing on some free press if one of their dance pros just happens to hook up on his down time with the hottest female contestant ever voted off American Idol.

Lindsay Lohan lost Victoria Gotti role bid, but will play Gotti Jr wife? Lindsay Lohan News! Lindsay Lohan lost Victoria Gotti role bid, but will play Gotti Jr wife? [Apr. 20] Troubled Disney princess and actress Lindsay Lohan is out of the running to play Victoria Gotti alongside John Travolta in his new film Gotti: Three Generations, according to a representative for Fiore Films, reports Access Hollywood. This would have been the first film role for Lohan since she was in rehab early this year. The star supposedly was hand-picked by Victoria Gotti herself, with whom the Lohan family is friends. Just last week, Lohan was discussing her proposed role in the film. Access Hollywood reports: “I’ve been speaking to some of the producers… and we’re discussing me possibly having a role in the film, which is very exciting,” Lindsay told a crew at the press conference for the project last week. “I think it’s an amazing story in the things that the Gottis have gone through over the years and just everything that comes with that family. I think is an incredible story to tell,” she added. But the representative for Fiore Films confirmed that the green celebrity actress was turned down: “Discussions have been broken between Fiore Films and Lindsay Lohan playing Victoria Gotti,” the rep said. Instead, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Lohan has been tapped to play the wife of Junior Gotti in the film. She said it would be a "great honor" to work with superstars John Travolta, who plays John Gotti, Sr., and Joe Pesci, who plays Angelo Ruggiero, one of Gotti's deputies.

Bieber Fever: Should Biebs next step be Dancing With The Stars?

April 20th, 2011
Bieber Fever: Should Biebs next step be Dancing With The Stars? Bieber Fever hits DWTS! Should Biebs next step be on Dancing With The Stars? [Apr. 20] Bieber Fever victims, be cool. While Justin Bieber himself may have caught the acting fever, after his stint on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation earlier this year, when he was finally killed off as a troubled teen bomber, he has no intention of giving up music anytime soon. He has said his first passion always will be music -- singing and dancing, though he really has enjoyed being in front of the camera and would like to do some more work in television or film. But what about him doing another reality TV type gig -- like Dancing With The Stars -- that would give him the chance to show off a bit more of his personal and professional nature to the Bieber Fever gang like he did in his 3D movie about his life history? Reports HollyScoop: "I definitely want to do more acting, and further my career in that area, that’s something I would love to do." Singing, dancing, acting. What's next other than joining up with adult and other teen celebrities that could be more sensational than DWTS, Bieber fever basket-weaving? Soap Opera special guest appearances on a show like All My Children with actress Susan Lucci (maybe getting involved in a cougar romance)? Oh wait... scratch that. All My Children just got canceled. We've already heard teasers from Romeo about doing something special with the Biebs on Dancing with the Stars, should Romeo make it to the finals. Seriously, though, what else could the Biebs get into later in his career. He has a long way to go, certainly. Justin Bieber was a hit on the New York late night comedy series Saturday Night Live with actress Tina Fey. And, again, for those who don't know about the Biebs life story he's had his own movie, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. With the hint that he could be appearing on Dancing with the Stars coming from Romeo (a hip hop performer who is the youngest on DWTS this 2011 season), we have to wonder ... could Justin Bieber make it as a reality television star who competes with other star celebs for the general public and Mirror Ball trophy hyped media attention?
