Lindsay Lohan was spotted filming her new docu-reality series in New York City. Noah Levy tells The Gossip Table that she’s doing everything she can to make Oprah happy. So that means the actress is making sure she’s putting her best foot forward. So anyone looking for segments about mugshots will be disappointed to get segments like Lindsay renting Citibikes with Dina for a quick trek through Manhattan.
As long as Lindsay is happy, we’re happy.
By now, everyone has heard that X-Factor judge Simon Cowell is expecting a child with Lauren Silverman. But before the two welcome their new child, Silverman has another special little man she wants Cowell to meet. Marianne Garvey reports that Silverman wants Cowell to sit down with her 7-year-old son from her previous marriage — to Cowell’s friend.
Another couple with an adorable son, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton…
Is Simon Cowell having a boy or a girl? What does being a feminist mean to Farrah Abraham? How do Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson measure up to Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele as they’re described on the page?
Why is Simon Cowell in for a shocker of his own from his pregnant girlfriend? Why does indie actress Gaby Hoffman think that Lena Dunham‘s not brave? And what are critics as a whole making of Lindsay Lohan‘s performance in The Canyons?
By now, it is very likely that you’ve heard something about Khloe Kardashian‘s nipple debuting along with Khloe herself as the host of The X Factor last night. For those of you who haven’t, and care enough to ponder about the situation, this is not about Khloe accidentally spilling out of her top on television as performers are wont to do. We wish that was the case because then all this fuss would make more sense. Instead it is about the fact that Khloe’s semi-sheer purple blouse, worn as she hosted the show, showed a hint of nipple poking through the shirt. Not a nipple slip, not a wardrobe malfunction, but just a very minor case of headlights. And this is what folks are freaking out about? We’ve even had to blur it out in the picture above in case someone gets offended, because so many people are talking about it. Heading this brigade would be Simon Cowell — one of the judges of the show — himself, who couldn’t contain his excitement yesterday and said, “May I say Khloe, you’re looking very sexy tonight … I think the air conditioning is on high.” As if staring at her fully-covered breasts wasn’t enough, he also tweeted this last night.
To all of this we say: GET OVER IT. She had clothes on. Most people didn’t even notice it but thanks to Simon perving out, now everyone else is too. Do we really have so much time on our hands that we now have to find problems with women who are properly and fully clothed too? Khloe herself seems to be amused about her “nip action”, as her tweet seen below reveals, but we’re feeling like everyone needs to move on now.

Here in the VH1 offices, we’ve been evaluating the judging skills of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on The X Factor. The consensus so far is that Demi’s being a whole lot nicer than Brit. And we’re not sure if that’s a good thing, when it comes to some of the more awful contestants on the show. We know Demi is a sweetheart to her fans, but she’s also got a quick wit we’d kind of like to see more of. She showed off that sharp tongue of hers on last night’s Conan, only it was directed at Simon Cowell rather than a misguided pop star wannabe.
“We’re trying to reach a younger demographic, and I just don’t think we’re going to accomplish that when he’s showing more cleavage than Britney and I are,” she said when Conan O’Brien asked what she thought of Cowell’s signature wardrobe.
“I’m not showing any cleavage, this is a T-shirt,” Simon protested.
“I’m surprised because normally you could braid your chest hair,” Demi said.
And when Cowell reiterated his previous claim that Demi was “annoying,” she struck right back: “Thanks. You can be a bit of an a–hole, how’s that?”
Ooooh! More, please!

5 Things The X Factor Did Right In Its Season 2 Reboot
The X Factor finally returned last night and it did not disappoint. The singing was great (for the most part), Britney Spears and Demi Lovato were entertaining, and the revamped look of the show was stunning. Throw in a little Khloe Kardashian and this contest may actually beat The Voice in the ratings this year.
Here are 5 things The X Factor did right in its season-two premiere. Let us know if you agree or disagree. And tell us what you thought of Britney judging style.
1. It’s Britney, Bitch!
We never doubted Britney Spears would be a great addition to The X Factor judging panel. What was in doubt was her ability to form fully developed thoughts without the assistance of her caregiver/fiance Jason Trawick. And would Britney be able to go an entire two hours without smacking on a piece of Juicy Fruit? Well, color us surprised, y’all, because Brit Brit was fierce on last night’s premiere.
In addition to her brutally honest critiques, Britney looked great (loved the glasses!) and was far less cold to Demi Lovato than we would have imagined (young pop star vs. older pop star — there’s a Lifetime movie in there somewhere). Plus, she showed a range of emotions we weren’t sure she still had in her. Overall, adding Britney to the show is the best decision Simon Cowell could have made this season.
2. Wait, Is This The Hills 2.0?
Say what you will about reality shows and their manufactured drama, but the green room catfights and boy band life lessons on The X Factor really made us think we were watching a long-lost episode of The Hills — and we loved it. Watching Kaci and Kaylee Newton mean girl Paige Thomas so reminded us of that time Audrina and Heidi didn’t invite Lauren to a party in West Hollywood … or something like that. Keep the fabricated drama coming!
You guys, the Kardashians might be teaming up with Simon Cowell. That’s right, the man who flooded networks with competition shows and watered down music could join forces with celeb-socialites who created an entire media brand despite offering nothing of value to the world and possessing no apparent talent. This is like the Axis power of reality television. TV as we know it could be doomed.
According to TMZ, Khloe Kardashian (AKA, the good one) is in the lead to host X Factor this fall, topping the producer’s short list. Apparently execs are responding extremely well to her screen test, and are rarin’ to pit her alongside judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato in an effort to appeal to the all important younger demographic. “There’s at least an 85% chance she’ll get the job,” a source close to Cowell reports.
It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that Cowell and the Kardashian’s have changed the face of entertainment. In the past, you generally had to be famous to appear on television. Thanks to these two camps, the theory is reversed. Appear on the box and the fame will follow! Even if you’re just a terrifyingly media savvy family, or a guy who sings Ricky Martin songs hilariously bad. Now they could join forces and…oh god. We scared, you guys. Hold us.

Around the same time that the NBC stars were celebrating their new fall lineup, Fox’s Upfront presentation for advertisers was also happening in NYC. Both channels brought in their bigtime stars, but we feel Fox may just have inched ahead. This was also, in part, because of the news we published yesterday that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato were officially named as the newest judges on The X Factor.
But they were, by no means, not the only stars who came to the presentation. Fellow The X Factor judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid were also there. A ton of the Glee cast showed up as well. Lea Michele led the way in a lovely, delicate Pucci dress with Casadei shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Naya Rivera wore the one mullet dress we’ve ever liked, a Lublu number that she paired with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. Jenna Ushkowitz wore a summery Rebecca Minkoff design, completing the trio of ladies from the show. Cory Monteith, Chris Colfer and Darren Criss represented the show’s dudes. New Girl star Zooey Deschanel was also there in a Carven dress and Miu Miu heels, as was her co-star Hannah Simone. And surprise surprise, a casually dressed Mila Kunis came for the event as well. Take a look at all of them, in the gallery below.

TV’s Muscle Show Up For NBC’s Upfront: Eva Longoria, Christina Applegate, Amy Poehler And More
It’s finally official, set-in-stone, greenlit and ready to go! After weeks of rumors, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato were officially presented this afternoon as the newest judges on The X Factor. We announced last week that Britney finally inked a $15 million deal after years (OK, maybe just months) of back and forth negotiations, and this morning we passed along unconfirmed reports that Demi was signing on as well. But now we know for real that the two Disney alums will be taking over seats left by former judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
“I’m so exited about this whole experience,” she said at the Fox network “upfront” this afternoon in New York. “I’m ready to find a true star.” Demi was equally enthusiastic. “I’m exited to represent my generation.” For his part, Simon was his usual cocky sharp-tonged self. “I’m thrilled they The Voice have decided to compete with us in the fall,” he said with a smirk. “I wish them luck.” Bold words, considering that the first season of the show didn’t match the overwhelming success of American Idol a decade before. But…come on, it’s Britney freakin’ Spears. She’s sure to be a much-needed shot in the arm as far as the ratings are concerned! Right? Or are we just showing our age…?
