may remember him as the baritone of boyband 98 Degrees, or, more likely, as the
champion of Dancing With the Stars.  Anyway, the last time we saw Drew Lachey, he was
basking in the glow of his glitter-ball trophy on all the talk shows: Tony
Danza, The View, Ellen Degeneres, Jimmy Kimmel and on and on. It was even
proclaimed that he, along with his brother, had the Best Week Ever. But since
then, we haven’t heard anything from him. So where is he now?

life has quieted down quite a bit since the heady days after his Dancing With
the Stars
. He says he doesn’t miss the limelight though. "It was a crazy
time, and it was fun, but I’m just looking forward to spending more time with
my wife and raising my baby." He added that he might consider doing a TV show,
movie, album, or personal appearance if "someone offers."

Commentary: MTV’s 8th and Ocean



So you’ve just turned 21, you’re drop-dead gorgeous, your rent’s taken care of, you make a living posing with stunning men in swimming pools and you’re the subject of an MTV reality show. There’s only one thing better than being a female model on MTV’s new reality show 8th and Ocean: being a male model. 

In last night’s first episode, small town girl Britt wallowed in insecurity and twin sisters Kelly and Sabrina competed like gladiators for their next gig. Meanwhile Teddy, Sean and Vinci were just happy to be alive. The boys divided their time between playing video games, eating pizza and getting lucky. And unlike the women, none of them found modeling to be too challenging. So while the ladies might get more attention and fatter paycheck, in the long run these guys appreciate everything they got…and that makes them top models in my book. Check out more pictures of the cast after the jump…

SIZZLER: Lohan to Hawk Vuitton?



The latest dish on the teen star is that she’s been pegged to be the new face of Louis Vuitton. According to Oh No They Didn’t: industry insiders claim Louis Vuitton’s creative director, Marc Jacobs, personally asked Lindsay to pose for the forthcoming autumn/winter campaign in ads he’s describing as "very young" and "cartoony".

So I guess while Lindsay will go nude for an Oscar, she’ll go ‘young and cartoony’ for a brand new handbag.

Sharon Stone Knows What People Want



As everyone knows, Sharon Stone is going to be super extra nude in Basic Instinct 2. But she wants to tell you herself as well:

"People are just sitting there going, like, ‘I don’t care what she’s saying. I don’t care what she’s saying. I just want to know is she getting naked? Is she getting naked in that movie? Is she naked? Nude? Nude? Naked? Do I see her boobies?"’ the actress, now 48, told reporters, laughingly. "So let’s just get through to that. Yes! And now that I’ve cleared that up, let’s just go to the next question, because nobody cares about anything else, really," she said.

I guess that’s true because the article ends without a next question!

Is MySpace Having the Best Week Ever?


First, it was Joe Rogan‘s blog post heard ’round the world, recounting his bloody online battle of the witless with a rogue young MySpace warrior known to us only as "Kevin".

Then ex-Mrs. Federline Shar Jackson used the online networking site to stream her cover of man-stealer Britney Spears‘ famous song "Toxic".

And let’s not forget about post 15-minutes of famer Kristin Cavalleri, who is using her MySpace blog to make excuses for explain the abrupt cancellation of her reality show Let’s Get This Party Started.

Who needs a high-priced publicist when you can have a free MySpace profile, the willingness to blog, and a little too much to drink?  A place for friends?  I think not.

MySpace is definitely having the Best Week Ever!

ALSO:  Your friends here at Best Week Ever have our very own profile.  Thanks for the add!

Kristin’s Party Just Getting Started?



If anyone watched Kristin Cavalleri’s short-lived UPN reality series, Let’s Get This Party Started, you’d know it should never have been canceled. The show, which threw surprise parties for unsuspecting people, was such a rating success we couldn’t imagine why anyone would give it the axe. Thankfully the mystery has been solved. According to "Kristin’s" creatively-punctuated Myspace blog:

"My show Get This Party Started–i cancelled [i]t because i want to star in a couple of episodes of lb[laguna beach] with some old season 2 friends like jess and alex m[.] alex h is still going to be in college so u wont probably see her in season 3 but i cancelled the show because has i sed [said] i was doing lb3 and my schudelue with that and get this[party started]… was getting to hacked[.] But after we’re done filming the show in like april, get this party started mite[might] be back on air and believe me its not going to be on the same nite of lb lol

We’re keeping out fingers crossed. After the jump, "Kristin" sells us on the new season of Laguna Beach

SIZZLER: Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban to Marry


Nic_keith_walkOkay, I know we’ve heard this before, but it looks like the Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban wedding is really on:

According to a new report set to hit the newsstands on Friday, In Touch Weekly states that Nicole Kidman is finalizing plans for a lavish wedding despite denials from Nicole Kidman’s Australian publicist.
"Too many people are involved to keep the time and place a secret for much longer," says a friend of Nicole. In fact, some of the Kidman clan may have spilled the beans already. A source has been quoted as saying: "They’re so excited, they’re telling their travel agents why they’re flying around the world."

Normally I would be skeptical, but since he wrote that song and all, I’m inclined to believe it.

GAMES: Movie Time


Three big movies are opening up this weekend: Failure to Launch, These Hills Have Eyes, and The Shaggy Dog. Now, while I’m probably not going to see any of them in the theaters (let’s be serious, people), that doesn’t mean I’m not going to check out their websites to see what kind of killer games the studios put together for me to play. I decided to review them for you right here. So let’s begin.

3. Failure to Launch: I got excited when I saw the special features section on the Failure To Launch page. I was really hoping that I could finally live out my dream of launching Sarah Jessica Parker into a wall or something. Unfortunately, that wasn’t an option. Instead, the only game offered is a "Roommates Vs. Parents" quiz, where you have to decide things like who’s more likely to: Rent or Own– your roommates or parents. Really tough stuff. Grade: D (almost a Failure, but not quite)

2. These Hills Have Eyes: A video game hasn’t been able to scare me since Castlevania on Nintendo in 1988. Sorry guys. Grade: C

1. The Shaggy Dog: That Tim Allen! He sure knows how to entertain! The best of the three, this site has plenty to keep you busy… if you’re 12. The Frogger-esque "Chase The Cat" game kept me entertained for minutes, and the What Kind of Dog Are You? quiz proved insightful. I’m a bulldog. The best feature on the site, though, is the Shaggify Yourself page. No, it’s not what you think– Disney is not re-directing you to a porn site. Instead, you can upload a picture and see what you would look like as a dog. Naturally, I was curious what Paris Hilton would look like if she was one. So, when you click below, you can finally see what Paris would look like if she was a bitch. I said "if."
