LOS ANGELES – Sexy Salsa: Kim Kardashian Selling "Dancing With the Stars" Inspired Diet | Eva Longoria Locks Lips With Stranger For 35G | Labor Pain: Lindsay Lohan Loses It | Tommy Lee's Avoiding Airplanes, Still Behaving Badly...
Kim Kardashian was one of the first to be eliminated from last season’s Dancing With the Stars, but her shock early departure actually inspired the reality starlet to whip her famous figure into becoming even more fabulous and create her own fitness DVD.
"After DWTS I saw what good shape everyone else was getting in and I wanted to be right there. I didn't stay in the competition long enough to hit that Dancing With the Stars diet so I just started working out with a trainer everyday for about a month and a half," Kardashian told Tarts at 944/Akon’s Private Grammy dinner last weekend. "I finally got to where I wanted to be so I shot a fitness DVD to show everyone else they can get there too. I want to motivate people to get started. I think that's the hardest part, to just get going. So hopefully buying my DVD will help them to just get going."
Sounds like a winner - seeing Kimmy K sweating it out is sure to at least get a multitude of male hearts going. But just because she’s adding workout whiz to her resume doesn’t mean she wants to pop too many pounds.
"I don’t feel any pressure to stay thin, I really don’t," Kardashian assured us. "I love being curvy, I'm not your typical stick skinny girl and I'm okay with that. I love myself."
But back to DWTS, it seems the show just can’t get their Republican-related candidates to comply. We've heard word that Cindy McCain was approached to star in the upcoming season but turned it down. Last year an invitation was reportedly extended to former VP Dan Quayle and as ready to go but got cold feet last minute.
But Kim isn't the only "Dancing" alum who is cashing in on some fitness fame, Mel B is also spicing up your life with a new DVD set "Totally Fit" featuring her sweaty secrets of how she shed those pregnancy pounds.
"I put on close to 60 lbs. with my last pregnancy but I didn't want to go and spend money on a gym membership or have to pay a trainer, I wanted to create a workout that I could do in the comfort of my own home," Brown told us. "You can use household items like water bottles or cans of soup, broomsticks, or a mop. It just makes it more affordable so it makes sense for you …and me."
Eva Longoria hosted "Lingerie Miami" last Saturday at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, but it turns out one very lucky lad scored more than lacy lingerie when he attended the swanky soiree.
Longoria (who conveniently attended the event sans hubby Tony Parker) auctioned off a date and a kiss-on-the-lips to raise money for global microfinance organizations to assist women who earn less than $1 a day. One dedicated male fan scored himself the very intimate prize for a cool 35G.
On the note of intimate, the Desperate Housewife stayed fully-clothed at the affair but watched from the front-row as models made their way down the runway in luxury-lingerie brands Agent Provocateur, Fifi Chachnil Couture and Carine Gilson Couture.
Pop Tarts spies also spotted Eva enjoying a dinner date at KOI Las Vegas on Wednesday night once again without her NBA man. Instead the starlet wined and dined with her rumored former flame, Mario Lopez ...
Despite all the murmurs that Lindsay Lohan was an annoyance on the set of the upcoming "Labor Pains", co-star Tracee Ellis-Ross assured us she was nothing but "awesome and sweet" to work alongside. But is it be possible that Lilo's recent crazy behavior could it be a result of a few too many hits to the head?
"Lindsay does this thing where she pretends she's running into a glass wall," Ross said backstage at Thursday's NAACP Awards. "She got me three times, she's really funny."
Ha, our sides hurt from laughing.
On a not quite so laughable note, Sean "Diddy" Combs also stopped by to chat after receiving an award for Outstanding Actor in a Television Movie for A Raisin in the Sun. While he declined to comment on the Chris Brown saga, he did give us some insight on how he keeps his cool and has reached such heights of success.
"Faith is my secret weapon, it is my belief and my belief in God that has allowed to accomplish so much," Combs said. "I know as an actor I've got a long way to go. I've learned you really have to give all of yourself, as a singer you can hide but acting has taught me how to give more of myself."
Tommy Lee hit headlines last week when the pilot on his helicopter was arrested on a suspected DUI, but it seems now that the Motley Crue rocker is sticking to traveling on the bus ... away from his band mates. Infact, the controversial Crue all have separate tour buses this time around.
"But that's not because we don't get along," frontman Vince Neil told Tarts on his private tour bus before their show at Sin City's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday night. "It’s just now we can afford to have our own."
The boys were on their (not surprising) bad behavior as they closed the hotel's famous venue The Joint, complete with explosions and fireworks. In typical Tommy Lee style he skulled Patron straight from the bottle before passing it down to share with his fans and Neil made the comment that he was just glad Lee was "still alive" to this day given his many years of hard partying ways.
Despite murmurs that he and Pamela Anderson are rekindling their romance, Pop Tarts spotted Lee getting particularly cozy with a bunch of barely-dressed babes at The Palms restaurant Simon the night before ...
But back to the concert, fans of The Joint should fear not - the doors won’t stay closed for long. The $60 million revamped venue (which is part of a $750 million expansion at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which will upgrade and expand the edgy property into a world-class Sin City resort) will re-rock open again in April, headlined by The Killers and Paul McCartney.
And for those who want to know all the deepest and darkest secrets of one of America’s craziest rock bands, it is time to put pressure on Paramount.
"Paramount Pictures bought the rights (to a Motley Crue movie) and they were going to put out the movie and they attached a director to it and we approved the script and it was ready to go," Vince told Tarts. "But then the President of Paramount left and I guess when people go in to new companies and take them over there are projects laying around and they get lost. So if it happens it happens - it is out of our hands."
