Kendra Wilkinson tells all in new memoir

Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson has never appeared to be ashamed of her unconventional past, but now, for the first time, the reality star will put it all in writing.

The former Playboy Bunny went on the “Today” show Tuesday to promote her new memoir, “Sliding into Home.” The book details Kendra’s life - from her past as a 13-year-old drug addict to her present as a wife and mother.

Kendra says there are parts of the memoir she has never discussed with the public – let alone her mother – saying she recently told her mom about her past as a stripper because she didn’t want her to find out from the book. FULL POST

Positive reviews for 'Superman' musical

First Wonder Woman got an edgy new makeover, and now Superman is singing show tunes. The Man of Steel has turned musical star thanks to a Dallas revival of the 1966 Broadway show “It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… It’s Superman!”

The production is actually quite a serious spectacle, with an $800,000 budget, a cast of 24 – including Broadway heavyweight Matt Cavenaugh (West Side Story”) as Superman – and more than 100 costume changes, reports The New York Times.

“It’s a Bird…” follows young Kal-El’s journey from the planet Krypton to farm life in Smallville to big-city Metropolis, and explores the love triangle between Lois Lane, Clark Kent, and corrupt businessman Maxwell Menken. FULL POST

Storming the castles on 'The Bachelorette'

Last night's episode of "The Bachelorette" brought Ali and the five remaining guys to Lisbon, Portugal.  There would be four dates this week, with no roses on the line in any of them.

The first solo date went to Roberto, who's asked by Ali to be the "king of her castle".  Are they heading to Medieval Times for dinner and a tournament?

Nope.  Instead, the two start posing for wacky photos, with Ali trying to impersonate every Toyota commercial from 1984.  Ali and Roberto then dance in the street to music added in post-production.  Mick Jagger and David Bowie they're not. FULL POST

Drake's first love is a wedding planner?

If you listen closely to the lyrics of Drake’s new single “Karaoke,” you’ll hear him reference a certain wedding planner.

So who’s the lucky wedding planner? Jade Lee, the artist’s childhood friend from Toronto and - if the rest of his lyrics are any indication - his first love:
