Lady Gaga may be overworked to the point of exhaustion, but that’s not stopping her from committing to help the victims of the 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti Tuesday.

The singer/provocateur performed on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” Friday, and mentioned that proceeds from an upcoming concert would go towards Haiti relief efforts.

“Haiti's still suffering,” she told Winfrey. “And I was thinking earlier, because I was in New York during 9/11 and I always felt, the level of disaster isn't in the neighborhood of what is happening in Haiti, but I just remember feeling nobody really understood. And I worry that young people don't know enough about what's going on there.” FULL POST

'Project Runway' makes a promising return

Season 7 of “Project Runway” premiered on Thursday night. The return of the design competition felt a little bit like slipping back into a relationship with an ex-boyfriend. It’s comfortable and predictable, but while you were broken up, he made some new friends and moved to a new neighborhood.

After a stint in Los Angeles, the show has moved back to New York City (why they ever left the fashion capital I still don’t know). There are 16 new bright-eyed designers and the week’s challenge was first-episode simple, “Show us who you are as a designer.” Actually, what seems simple is probably the hardest task of all since it translates into “show us why you’re worthy in one outfit in or less.”

Reams of fabric were draped all about Central Park forcing the designers to scramble over one another to collect their materials. It looked like The Gates exhibit being ravaged by monkeys. FULL POST

It’s official! Kate Gosselin (and her hair!) are getting their own show on TLC.

Steve Cheskin, head of programming for the network, announced during a panel at the Television Critics Association that a project is currently in the works. “I can tell you yes, we are developing a new show with Kate,” Cheskin said.

Rumors have abounded that the show will feature Kate trying her hand at different jobs, a la Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in “The Simple Life,” but Cheskin said that the details for the show have yet to be worked out. Last month Kate was spotted with a camera crew serving food at a North Carolina restaurant.
