Danity Kane

"Bad Boy Records' red-hot girl group Danity Kane, stars of the hit MTV series "Making the Band 3," have exploded at retail outlets nationwide with their debut album, "DANITY KANE." The multi-talented quintet is the music industry's newest Cinderella story, as Danity Kane is now neck and neck with veterans OutKast and Christina Aguilera for the top spot on next week's national album chart. Danity Kane's first-week sales triumph is unprecedented for a new artist with little radio or video airplay.

Bad Boy CEO Sean "Diddy" Combs commented: "Many people wrote off these girls as just a 'made-for-TV' group, but I believed in their talent from the beginning. The fans have spoken, and with their love and support, Danity Kane's dream is coming true. Sometimes word of mouth is better than radio and video play. This is the best kind of success, one that comes straight from the people.""

Sean "Diddy" Combs set out to create an all girl supergroup. Danity Kane consists of Aubrey Morgan O'Day, D. Woods, Shannon Rae Bex, Dawn Angelique Richard, and Aundrea Aurora Fimbres.

Jenna Dewan is new star in "Step Up"

Jenna Dewan

Step Up is not the best dance movie ever made. Step Up is not the best hip-hop based movie ever made. But Step Up is the clearest indication that hip hop has crossed over, all the way over to the lighter side of cool.

Step Up is essentially a hip hop fairy tale where both main characters are white.

Of course, the greatest sign that black culture has gone mainstream is when the black characters are reduced to the supporting role and that is exactly what takes place in Step Up. It is probably also the most significant thing in a flick that is alright enough, but never steps up to being astounding.

Directed by Anne Fletcher and written by Duane Addler and Melissa Rosenberg, Step Up stars Channing Tatum (Coach Carter and She's The Man) and Jenna Dewan. When done right, dance movies have a magic that is not easily approximated by other films. Whether it is the breakneck energetic moves of Beat Street, the joy of watching Fred Astaire groove, or the ecstasy of Dirty Dancing, when a movie about dancing gets it right, it struts in a whole new light.


The Rachael Ray Show

Rachael Ray
Carefully tailored to service the soccer mom crowd racing between work and kids and shopping, "The Rachael Ray Show" is a syndicated daytime talk show-cum-pep rally targeting viewers who are double-parked.

It moves along in energetic rat-a-tat-tat style via a series of manic Rachael McNuggets that casts Oprah's very own handpicked youngster as a whirlwind of hyperkinetic charisma. Indeed, the opening hour depicts the former host of Food Network's wildly popular "30-Minute Meals" as a woman in need of Ritalin to slow it down, modulate her pitch and try a little less hard. Ray has an inherent likability and is certainly easy on the eyes, but she doesn't talk to us so much as screams and she might want to consider taking a more leisurely approach. As it is, it's all she can do to keep from using the adoring audience as her mosh pit.

Dashette Vida Guerra

This was a surprisingly unsurprising September. As Dashette Vida Guerra (2) was asking over tailgate ribs, "What happened to all that unpredictability you were talking about before the season, Dashman? You said every top team had a weakness, and there would be a lot of upsets, and a lot of upheaval in the polls. Looks like you were wrong." The Dash's response: There is a first time for everything, Vida. Now pipe down or Adriana Lima (3) makes a comeback.

Gilmore Girls: Season Seven PremiereRegular airtime: Tuesdays, 8pm ET (The CW)Cast: Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Melissa McCarthy, Keiko Agena, Edward Herrmann, Matt Czuchry, David SutcliffeTV Guide‘s Michael Ausiello got that ball rolling early this month. Though he’s typically her number one fan, he expressed disappointment over Graham’s “emotionally guarded” performance while previewing tonight’s premiere at his blog. “Much of the episode called for Lorelai to be distraught over what she had done to Luke (i.e. bedding Christopher), and, unfortunately, LG rarely gives you a sense of that anguish,” he wrote. He also detailed a deviation from the script that seemed to favor Lorelai pursuing a romance with Christopher (David Sutcliffe), Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) father, beyond the one-night stand at the conclusion of last season. As Graham has defended the appeal of that relationship multiple times, Ausiello speculated that the change might be an indication of Graham’s increased creative input now that Rosenthal’s in charge.

Public enemies Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie

"Have public enemies Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie buried the hatchet? Maybe, maybe not. But the "Simple Life" stars, who have been feuding since last year, appeared together in a video posted on the entertainment Web site TMZ.com. In the video, taped Sunday night, the two arrived together at Dan Tana's Steakhouse in Los Angeles. After dinner, they text-messaged while waiting for their car on a bench in front of the restaurant. At one point, they looked at each other and smiled when an unseen observer said, "I always knew you'd be friends again, Paris."" AP

New Bond girl Caterina Murino

Caterina Murino
Entertainment Weekly has interviewed new Bond girl Caterina Murino on her role in Casino Royale and other hot topics with the actress. It's ironic that you landed the role of horsewoman Solange, since a horse almost caused you to blow your audition. It was very funny because the day before, I had an accident with a horse. I was preparing for an Italian movie, and I fell down. I broke a rib on my right side. I was in the hospital. I was completely under drugs. I went there to the casting, and I couldn't walk. It was unusual; the Bond girl is so full of energy, and I can't walk! But Martin Campbell called me back to go to London and do the same scene with him. And I got the role.

Caterina Murino (born September 15, 1977) is an Italian actress.

Caterina Murino was born in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy. She reached fourth place in the 1996 Miss Italy contest. In 1999 and 2000, she studied drama at the Cinema of Theatre of Francesca de Sapio, and appeared in stage productions of Richard III and Italian language plays. She began her career in television in 2002. She gained international fame when it was announced on January 14, 2006, that she would play a villain's girlfriend, Solange, in the 2006 adaptation of the James Bond novel Casino Royale
