Haley Reinhart talks ‘90210,’ ‘Listen Up!’ – For Haley Reinhart, singing new material on American Idol last week felt like coming full circle. “I loved being able to walk in the doors and see smiling, familiar faces,” says the singer, who finished third on Idol’s 2011 season. “They had a lot of really nice words, and they were really excited.” Haley also got to hand advance copies of her Listen Up! album to some of the folks she worked with last season. “They had heard there was a lot of exciting stuff going on, so they were proud of me and happy to have me back.” Read more at USA Today

Haley Reinhart wants you to ‘Listen Up’: Details on the ‘American Idol’ vet’s new album – “It’s pretty much dunzo,” Reinhart says of the new album. “I co-wrote everything other than the single ‘Free,’ actually. That was the first tune that I heard while I was touring and I thought it was amazing and wanted to record it. We kept the recording we did while on tour.” Reinhart tells Zap2it that she’s had a crazy year trying to put together the album. “I have had an amazing time and the process of working with producers and co-writers it was all very fast. It was like speed dating, but we got it done. It was an exhausting process, but then again, what isn’t? The past two years… But it’s been well worth every single blood sweat and tear because I am proud and it is something that defines me.” – Read more at Zap2it

‘Dancing With the Stars’: Melissa Gilbert fights with Maks, but not in public – “We are outspoken with one another privately,” she said. “We don’t share that with the public. That’s the difference. He can say anything he wants to me when the microphones are off. And so can I. But as soon as they’re on, we act like professionals.” Wow, that’s rather different from former partners of his. Gilbert says that Maks can’t be a diva with her. “We do butt heads, but that ends in us agreeing to disagree and moving on, or not. And I’ll tell you, his professionalism and his need for perfection pushes me in a way I never thought I’d be pushed. – Read more at Zap2it
