And You Are? J.Lo Having Trouble With ‘Idol’ Names

“It’s so embarrassing that Jennifer keeps goofing Randy’s name, ” one TV insider tells me. “If it’s not about Jen then forget about it. Poor Randy has a hard enough time getting noticed sitting next to dominating Simon and eccentric Paula but at least they both knew he was. Sitting next to Jennifer he might as well be invisible.”

“It was funny at first but now no-one is laughing, ” a source tells me. “But the best part about it, is that JLo has made it clear everyone must remember to call her Jen.”

Kurt Warner says DWTS producers don’t want celebs pushing issues, but they did this week

Former NFL player Kurt Warner wasn’t able to join with other football players to support efforts to end breast cancer because Dancing with the Stars’ producers wouldn’t let him wear a ribbon as part of his costume.

Kurt first complained about this on Twitter, explaining in a second tweet that he “understand[s]”. Later, he told Access Hollywood, “I know and understand that a lot of people have what they want to stand behind and the show doesn’t want to become something where everybody’s got their issue every week so they weren’t going to let me wear the ribbon. We were still able to add the pink in there because we know it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month and we wanted to send a shout out to all those people that have dealt with that because I think so many of us have been affected one way or the other whether it’s directly or indirectly and we’re just hoping for the best.”

“It was one of those things where nobody knew anything because the writers hadn’t written anything for it yet, ” Overstreet said. “There was so much buzz about it that when each person was cast, everybody was like, ‘That’s the guy!'”
