Three won't be dancing
Lots of changes this season for DWTS. The judges are set: Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli. But the show's shrinking to one ep a week, due to audience shrinkage. Some faves won't be around. Awesome Aussie Kym Johnson is leaving after 14 years. Maksim Chmerkovskiy also is sitting out. Anna Trebunskaya has the best excuse: She's having a widdle baby human! Her first.
Malibu stalker shenanigans
A lady said to have been stalking John Cusack was arrested Tuesday night after allegedly trying to break into his Malibu crib. Police say Elizabeth Pahlke, 45, was climbin' fences, bangin' windows, and that. She was hauled in on suspicion of felony stalking and burglary. Earlier Tuesday, lawyers for Cusack had served Pahlke with a restraining order. We dunno why yet. John evidently was not at home.
Funs have more blonde
Sofía Vergara, now a blonde by choice, tops Forbes mag's list of top-earning TV actresses. She's straddled the list before. She has been muy inteligente with endorsement deals with Sears, Diet Pepsi, and CoverGirl. Plus Modern Family. Tot it all up and she makes $30 mils. Tied at runner-up are Law & Order's Mariska Hargitay and The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco (really?), both with $11 million. A bunch of wimmens are scrummin' at No. 4 with $10 million apiece. Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy is there. So are, it says here, the Kardashians, talk-show host Bethenny Frankel, Grey's Anatomy body part Ellen Pompeo, and now underemployed Tina Fey.
