Bits and Pieces

The gossip site is busy covering the Idols today.  First, they take us behind the scenes at the LA Idols show after party Friday night. And it’s pretty much what you’d expect. Next, TMZ lets us know “what went down inside” what they call the Taylor Hicks Viper Room Romp.  It reads like they cribbed it from one of the many detailed and entertaining recaps posted on this blog in the last few days. Hee.  More interesting,  however, is this little blurb on Katharine McPhee:

A well-placed source tells TMZ that Kat, who has the same theatrical manager as another ailment-prone hottie, Lindsay Lohan, is one of the lucky ladies up for the highly coveted lead role in the big-screen adaptation of “Wonder Woman.”

Everyone from Sandra Bullock to Kate Beckinsale has been rumored to be in the running for the starring role in the movie, which will be directed by Joss Whedon, who created “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

TMZ has learned that Katharine, who has struggled with bulimia, will appear on the cover of an upcoming issue of Shape magazine, wearing a bathing suit. Now in a much healthier place, McPhee will show off her killer curves for all the world to see.

While Katharine will drop an album in the fall, she appears to be pursuing other options in the entertainment world as well.

And finally, more evidence that Elliott Yamin has a record deal.  In Randy Jackson’s latest Idol Insider podcast for Westwood One radio, he says:

…And proud to announce my boy, Elliott Yamin, one that we loved this season (me and Paula), one of our favorites — just the nicest, coolest kid…is about to sign a record deal. So he’ll have an album out in the near future…
