Amber Riley wins ‘Dancing with the Stars’


Good on ya!

There can only be one winner. The wait is over. Drumroll please....

Tuesday night’s Dancing With the Stars’ mirrorball trophy holder is Amber Riley, along with pro partner Derek Hough.

“It doesn’t matter what size you are or what color you are! You can do whatever you put your mind to!” screamed the victorious Glee star.

Laughing matter

Even though fiance Kanye West often has a hard time taking a joke (remember that ridiculous feud with Jimmy Kimmel of all people?), Kim Kardashian seems to have a sense of humor.

Kardashian tweeted her approval a few hours after the spoof of the rapper’s Bound 2 video hit the Web. In it, Seth Rogen reenacts Kim’s part, riding on a bike topless while straddling James Franco. “You nailed it!!! Sooo funny!” KK wrote.

No comment from West, just as we thought. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Right?!

Playing nurse

Wynonna Judd has been through hell and back helping her husband, musician Michael “Cactus”Moser, recuperate from a motorcycle accident in which he lost his leg. The couple were riding on their bikes in South Dakota when Moser collided with an oncoming vehicle in August of last year. Still, the country singer told Entertainment Tonight they are closer than ever. “I went from wearing the cute newlywed clothes to wearing cotton that had crap all over it, hair in a ponytail, and rolling up my sleeves for the man I love. The bottom line is it makes or breaks you. You realize that you’re bonded in a life.”

Taylor Swift is doing as the Brits do while in London. The singer was seen in a pub with Romeo & Juliet hunkster Douglas Booth, building up a tolerance to alcohol. Us Weekly reports the two polished off eight beers over five hours. Swift was in town reportedly looking for a flat.

    Cameron Diaz defends bestie Drew Barrymore

    Don’t mess with Cameron Diaz, at least when it comes to her friends. During the around the world media blitz for her latest bomb Sex Tape, the actress called in to Australia’s KIIS 106.5’s Kyle & Jackie O show, and cut short an interview with co-host Kyle Sandilands after he made a comment about her Charlie’s Angels costar Drew Barrymore. Sandilands remarked that the girl in the raunchy comedy (Giselle Eisenberg) reminded him of Barrymore in ET, adding snarkily that he hoped she didn’t go down the same path of drug use. Diaz hit back: “I’m sure, Kyle, you’ve never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty clean; always did it right? Congratulations,” then cut the interview short and hung up.
