The Boss goes network TV

Guess some may charge Bruce Springsteen with selling out to corporate America's milimedia-industrial complex with his new music/TV cross-promotional deal.

Three songs from The Boss' new album will be previewed on the Jan. 12 episode of CBS's Julianna Margulies vehicle, The Good Wife, including the title song, "High Hopes."

CBS wants to reel in Bruce's baby boomers, and he wants exposure to the millions who watch network TV.

"This is music I always felt needed to be released," Bruce says in a release. "I felt they all deserved a home and a hearing." High Hopes is due in stores Jan. 14, but it can be streamed free beginning Jan. 5 at CBS.com/springsteen.

Kendra's priorities

Professional Hugh Hefner friend Kendra Wilkinson, 28,  is worried about her second pregnancy with hub and former Eagle Hank Baskett  .

Is she fretting about the delivery? About postpartum depression?

Nothing that trivial: She's terrified about baby weight, she tells In Touch Weekly.

"This pregnancy is extremely different already," says Kendra, who struggled in biblical proportions to lose the 50 pounds avoirdupois she gained the first time. "I'm already showing at three months and I'm gaining a lot of weight faster, so I have to take control," she says. "I'm already getting these thick love handles."

Winslet's baby worries

Glamour UK mag asked new mum Kate Winslet how she's coping with the crisis that so plagues Kendra: losing baby weight. "Having just had a baby, I'm not going to be thinking about my [derriére]," Winslet, 38 said.

Boitano: Pride, not shame

Gold medalist figure skater Brian Boitano, who last month was named to the U.S. delegation for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, says he was inspired to declare himself as a gay American man by President Obama. "When the president named the delegation and I read in the news what his message was, of tolerance and diversity, I thought, 'I have to take this opportunity,' " Boitano, 50, told Matt Lauer Thursday on Today. Boitano said fans had been supportive. He also said his family and friends never were in the dark. "I've never been ashamed of who I was, I've always been open with them," he said.
