Rising Star: ITV axes ‘new X Factor’ before it’s even aired – Rising Star has been axed by ITV – before it even aired. The singing show – which was initially expected to fill the Dancing on Ice slot in January – was a huge success in Israel and was snapped up by ITV last year. However, the program flopped in the US this summer and the German series was recently reduced after a “lack of audience response”. Some reports suggested that concerns about the program had led ITV to consider stripping the show across one week, but it has now decided not to show it at all. The news that ITV had decided to drop the show emerged in Broadcast today, with a spokesperson confirming the end of the singing show. –

The former Olympian unloaded on Facebook right after she got the boot from the ballroom … saying, “When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics and that people constantly tease me about. I thought oh no here it comes again. People are going to ridicule me. I’m so tired of feeling embarrassed.” “I joined the other competitors upstairs and I couldn’t force a smile on my face. I felt like vomiting and in between the other dances I went in a back room and fought back tears. I felt so broken. So unlovable. Embarrassed.” – Read more at TMZ

‘Big Brother 16’: Frankie Grande on the Rewind Blindside and Team America Curse – If the Big Brother Rewind affected one houseguest the most, it was you. Prior to the rewind, you won the HOH and POV competitions, almost ensuring that Victoria would be going home and the Final 4 deal with Caleb, Cody and Derrick would remain intact. When the rewind came into effect, why were you targeted?
I was targeted because this is a game for $500,000 and greed will almost always win out over loyalty. It is not in my character to play that way, so during my reign as HOH, I honored the Final Four deal and was proud to have done so. However, I knew I was the biggest target and that it would be detrimental to everyone else’s game if I remained in the house. – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter

Frankie of ‘Big Brother’ says he does not regret pushing the Rewind button and wants to marry Zach – Anyone that does not win this game will have a regret or something they wish they could go back in time and change. What’s your biggest regret? Trusting Caleb. Period. I should have known that if I was able to manipulate him so easily, someone else would have figured it out and use it against me. And looking back it should have been either him or Derrick sitting next to Victoria in my last HOH, not Cody. Finally, what becomes of Zankie now that you are about to be reunited with Zach in the Jury house? I’ve never been more excited about anything in my entire life. I’m hoping he’s waiting there with a ring and a bouquet. If he asked me to marry him, I’d say yes! I’m walking into the jury house with my ‘Team Zach’ shirt. – Read more at Entertainment Weekly
