Scott MacIntyre Shares Exclusively with Hallels His Time at American Idol, His New Album & His Own Health Issues – Hallels: You have a brand new album coming out entitled “Lighthouse” which also involves Danny Gokey and Skylar Laine. What is it like working with both of them? Tell us about their involvement on your new record.- I’m really excited to have Danny and Skylar join me on two songs for this album. They are both accomplished and unique artists in their own rights and we had a lot of fun in the studio together. The songs that Danny and Skylar sing on are two of the songs that I produced for this album, so from a producer’s perspective, I really enjoyed the challenge of capturing their performances and figuring out the best way to incorporate them. – Read more at

New ‘Survivor’ player John Rocker discusses his controversial ‘Sports Illustrated’ article – “Not really. I see these folks that I’m getting ready to play this game with as very similar to the 13 years of professional baseball that I played, and the teammates that I played with. Some of my biggest supporters after that SI debacle were my current and past teammates. I probably had 40 odd teammates come to my defense and say ‘No, we’ve known this guy for 5, 10, 15 years. He’s a great guy. We’ve had Thanksgiving dinners with him, we’ve traveled with him, yada, yada, yada.’ And those are the people that are very similar to what we’ll be doing on Survivor — almost a clubhouse atmosphere and situation. You’re with people the majority of the day, all day, every day for an extended period of time. My current and past teammates liked me so much they would come to my adamant defense after that article. I think once these people get to know me, they will be willing to defend me as well.” – Read more at InsideTV

‘Big Brother 16’: Nicole Franzel on the Lack of Power Moves and Derrick’s Dan Game – Did your perspective on any particular houseguests change after entering the house a second time and if so, how? Absolutely. Honestly, I think my perspective changed on everyone, especially Frankie. His true colors came out. I appreciated Victoria a lot more, hers changed for the better because she put the game on hold and was just a good person for trying to support me. Last time you were evicted, you said Derrick was in the best position in the house. Is that still the case? Honestly, yeah, I still feel like he is in the best position. He has never sat on the block and people see him as a week player when it comes to competitions, and everyone likes him a lot so I don’t see them putting him up even as a pawn. Who is in the worst position now? I’d say Frankie is in a tough position. – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter
