Coco Thinks Pink, We Think “Wow!” During Her GMA Appearance

Is Coco gunnin’ for the part of Rizzo in Grease? Ice-T‘s lovely missus rolled up to Good Morning America‘s Times Square headquarters today in a skintight top that would do the Pink Ladies proud. And with shoes to match! It may be cold outside, but she heated things up for the fans and photographers who braved the chill to get a glimpse of her famous behind. In leggings that left nothing to the imagination, she definitely didn’t disappoint!

But it wasn’t all about the booty for Coco today. She swung by the morning show to talk about her philanthropic work. The model tweeted before her appearance that she intended to donate some of her coats to charity. Smokin’ hot and kind? You’re a lucky man, Ice-T. We’d try to steal her from you, if we weren’t totally certain that your punishment would be swift and brutal. So for now, we’re content to just soak up her hotness in the gallery below!

Celine Dion Flashes Her Audience In A Super Short Dress

First we were a little shocked at seeing these pix of Celine Dion strutting the stage in a short dress that would even make Tina Turner blush. But then we realized that she probably has a lot of competition with other “flashy” entertainers like Rihanna and Lady Gaga. A diva’s got to do what a diva’s got to do, we suppose! Celine debuted her new look at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Trelawny, Jamaica last night. And from the looks of it, we’re guessing the front few rows got a little more than they bargained for as Celine jack-knifed across the boards. We don’t know what she was singing, but we kinda diggin’ this new soulful Celine. Check out more in the gallery below!

Is Rudy Huxtable Joining The Real Housewives Of Atlanta?

We’ll level with you: we haven’t totally accepted the fact that Keisha Knight Pulliam, better known to the world as Rudy Huxtable from The Cosby Show, didn’t just remain an adorable 7 year-old forever. We don’t care how many episodes of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne she appears on! But if these new rumors are true, it looks like we might have to wake up and face the facts that Rudy is all grown up. Reports are circulating that the former child-star has been tapped to join the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta! According reports on MediaTakeOut.Com, Keisha will be filling the spot left by Kandi Burruss, who bounced from the series to take on her own spin-off show, The Kandi Factory. Although there has been no official press release as of yet, a “high ranking Bravo producer”confirmed the story. One snag, though: her never-married status doesn’t exactly qualify her as a “real housewife.” But hey, she does live in the Atlanta area, so you never know… Stay tuned!

15 Jersey Characters We Hope Katherine Heigl Studied For One For The Money

One For The Money starring Katherine Heigl opens wide today, and it shows her in a way we aren’t used to seeing her.  No, we don’t just mean “brunette.” The film is based on the best-selling novel about Stephanie Plum, a down-on-her-luck lady from New Jersey who turns to bounty hunting to make some cash. The tough-as-nails Jersey girl part seems a bit of a stretch for Heigl. So let’s hope she researched by watching some other classic characters hailing from the great Garden State. Check out our 15 favorites in the gallery below. (Warning: Those sensitive to blatant stereotyping of New Jersey residents should probably just proceed to the next blog post.)

Rumors We Love: Oprah Is Going To Be Blue Ivy’s Godmother!

As if she wasn’t already the most hooked up kid on the planet, little Blue Ivy Carter is about to get some more serious star power. Apparently her super celeb mom and dad, Beyonce and Jay-Z, have asked Oprah to be her godmother! Although the reports haven’t been confirmed by the couple themselves, RadarOnline reports that the talk show legend has been tapped to be a godparent, along side Jay-Z’s pal Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith. If it’s true, Baby Blue can probably expect some seriously killer birthday parties. (“You get a pony! And you get a pony! Everybody gets a pony!”).

Oprah would definitely be an awesome and obvious choice for Blue Ivy’s fairy godmother. She’s already been doting on the newborn, in a distinctly Oprah-like way. Instead of sending the new baby a pimped-out stroller or badass crib (see what we did there?), the Big O sent over a “trunk” filled with her favorite children’s books. Awwww! Do we sense an Oprah’s Baby Book Club coming our way?

Josh Radnor Modestly Admits To Being A Filmmaking Machine At Sundance

Sure, we all love Josh Radnor on How I Met Your Mother.  He’s undeniably hilarious, but did you know that the dude is a one man movie-making machine!? OK, we’re sure he had some help, but it’s still pretty impressive that Josh wrote, directed and starred in Liberal Arts, which is currently taking Sundance by storm. How did he find time to do all that, and be on a hit sitcom?

“Well, I wrote it before I shot it, so I got that out of the way,” he told VH1 News’ very own Janell Snowden. But the simultaneous acting and directing did prove to be a challenge. “I’d done it before, but I’m in about 95 percent of this movie, so that was not easy.” So why not hand the lead role over to someone else, you might ask? It definitely wasn’t narcissism, if that’s what you’re thinking! “This was a part that I wrote that I couldn’t not play it. It was so close to a world I knew.”

Lady Gaga Creates The Born This Way Foundation To Help Combat Bullying

Lady Gaga may be one of the most famous people on the planet, but she definitely does more than her share to stick up for those with less power. She has passionately campaigned for LGBT rights and lent her bazillion dollar voice to speak out against bullying. She met with President Obama in September to discuss the creation of an anti-bullying legislation, and now Mama Monster is taking matters into her own hands by launching her long-awaited Born This Way Foundation.

The organization is set to launch on February 29 (but of course) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and will work in tandem with the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the California Endowment and several other groups. Gaga will direct the non-profit charity alongside her mother, Cynthia Germanotta. According to the press release, the foundation aims to “explore the best ways to reach youth and create a new culture of kindness, bravery, acceptance and empowerment.”
