Former Cosby kid Keisha Knight Pulliam stopped by our very own Big Morning Buzz Live today to give host Carrie Keagan the dirt on her new celebrity diving show, Splash! It sounds fairly simple (you just kinda fall, right?), but Keisha admitted it’s harder than it looks, and the stress sometimes proved too much for fellow contestant Kendra Wilkinson.
Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, joyful Kwanzaa, and — why not? — happy birthday too, while you’re at it! It’s the holiday seasons, folks; the time of year for giving to our nearest and dearest. And for you, dear readers, we could think of no better gift than 100 of the sexiest bikini photos that this year had to offer! We’ve got some of everybody, and we do mean everybody. There might even been one of you in there. We’ve got that many!
Of course this uber-gallery is presided over by Beyonce, who ruled over our 2012 Bikini Awards just like she does with the rest of the known universe. In fact, she was able to defy time and win the coveted award with pics that were (technically) from 2011. That’s the power of Queen Bey! In addition to her, our list is chock-full of other pop queens like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, and big-screen A-listers like Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Alba. TV personalities Maria Menounos and Angela Simmons made a strong showing, too. We’ve also got shots from the usual suspects like reality star Kim Kardashian, never-shy Twitter mama Adrianne Curry and Coco, the Patron Saint of Donks.
Some of our very own VH1 stars like Mob Wives’ Drita D’Avanzo and Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada put in an appearance, as did Hunger Games leading lady (and our personal favorite) Jennifer Lawrence. Professional hotties Kate Upton and Brooklyn Decker look straight out of the pages of Sports Illustrated, while Victoria’s Secret Angels Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima are simply heavenly.
So tear off the wrapping paper and dive in to our terrific 2012 retrospective of everyone’s favorite two-piece. Happy Holidays!

Everyone looks forward to the grand retail extravaganza that is Vogue‘s Fashion Night Out. Held in approximately 19 countries across a week, the U.S — due to Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour‘s dictact — has their big night on the first day of Fashion Week. It’s a smart move because everyone’s in New York then, and those celebrities who don’t need to be there on day one, can enjoy FNO in L.A, the other fashion capital of the country. That’s both coasts taken care of! Hundreds of stores and designers providing special gifts with purchase and exclusive FNO merchandise, discounts and deals. NYC was swarming with stars yesterday for FNO special apperances. AnnaSophia Robb was Fekkai Mademoiselle, Nikki Reed and Kate Upton were at Michael Kors. Nikki looks super hot in a golden sequined dress, FYI. She was the best-dressed of the night! Kellan Lutz, Pharrell Williams and Matchbox 20 were at Bloomingdales. Allison Williams was at the DVF store, while Alexa Chung was at Moschino. Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian made the rounds too, of course. Kim’s little sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, and her mother Kris Jenner were at the Beverly Center in L.A. along with Lucy Hale and Kendra Wilkinson, as well. Want to take a look at how glam everyone was? Head on over to our gallery!

The Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue party went down last night in L.A. at the Greystone Manor, and guests took the “hot” part of the invitation quite seriously. Kim Kardashian led the way working it in a sparkling silver strapless dress with neon pink pumps. Carmen Electra looked quite spectacular wearing a beige dress with gold vertical detailing, gathered at the waist. Olivia Munn picked a tight LBD with black booties, with an multi-strand orange necklace for color relief. Yep. Legs galore, right? Other stems that looked equally great were Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett‘s, showcased in a tight blue plunging mini. Jennifer Morrison went that route too, in a flounced frock, and she also debuted a new auburn ‘do. The likes of Shannen Doherty, Monica and Busy Philipps were also spotted wearing little dresses. Aubrey O’Day wore a maxi, but brought out the cleavage. Balancing out all the yin, was some pretty hot yang — Kellan Lutz. ‘Nuff said. Check out the gallery to see for yourself.

Hugh Hefner‘s wedding to Crystal Harris is off, quite out of the blue. The wedding was supposed to be on Saturday but the 24 year-old ex playmate did a bunk after an apparent argument with her Playboy over the weekend. Hef tweeted a confirmation of the news writing, “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.” But he’s also said that their supposed argument didn’t happen. Hefner tweeted an explanation that stated, “The TMZ report that Crystal & I ‘had a nasty argument,’ prompting her to call off the wedding, is untrue. There were no arguments.”
This may be small consolation, but at least she walked out before the wedding and didn’t ditch him at the altar or something. The Hef agrees, tweeting, “The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage.” The good news is that he has heaps of support pouring in from everyone, especially from his ex-girlfriends, the Girls Next Door. Holly Madison re-tweeted Kendra Wilkinson‘s message and added her own bit with, “U r too sweet. Wish I was there to support, too! RT @KendraWilkinson:@hughhefner we r comin over w some jack n coke… oh n a pipe lol”.
Also showing some love was Bridget Marquardt who also tweeted, “Just stopped by the mansion 2 give @hughhefner a hug. He seems to be handling this well. He even had a sense of humor about it! #LoveUHef”. He sure does, considering he tweeted, “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: “Runaway Bride.” Seems appropriate.” If anyone can get over this, we believe it’s the Hef. He’s such a rockstar.

Exes at a wedding is usually an awkward issue, even at the Playboy Mansion. Kendra Wilkinson told E! she’s annoyed former boyfriend/employer Hugh Hefner hasn’t sent her a save-the-date or anything for his impending nuptials to Crystal Harris. “I haven’t gotten my save the date yet,” she said. “I’m not joking, I’m really pissed off about it. If I don’t get a save the date, I have another wedding to attend that same day. I got a save the date from one of my closest friends for that date. I’m planning on going to Hef’s but I haven’t gotten the save the date for that same date. I’m getting kind of antsy because I need to pick which wedding to go to.” Gee, the marriage of a close friend or the marriage of a decrepit fox who used to keep you as a concubine? Choices, choices!
Not that she blames Hef for leaving her on the hook. “No! It’s Crystal that does the wedding planning. She’s the girl! If she doesn’t give me a save the date soon I’m going to have to put in my save the date with the other wedding.” Surely Crystal just forgot to invite all the veterans of Hef’s harem to the sacred ceremony—Kendra tweeted a thanks to Hef soon after the story went up (“u r hilarious hahahaa”), so we’re guessing this is water under the bridge…except perhaps for the “close friend” who Kendra called out as a back-up.

We knew someone was going to take a cheap shot at Kirstie Alley‘s weight while she participates on Dancing With The Stars, and George Lopez proved us right. And he made sure it was a really low blow. On Lopez Tonight, Georgie reviewed some of the celebrity participants on the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Kendra Wilkinson and Ralph Macchio were included in his little dissertation. But then, in the manner of saving the best for last, came Kirstie.
While barely containing his laughter, Lopez showed a small clip of her dancing and said, “She did a nice job, her little hooves tapping away. Before the show she went to the market, then she had roast beef, and this is her going all the way home.” He then cut to an image of the pig from a Geico commercial. Ha-FREAKIN’-Ha, Lopez. You just called her a pig, and that kind of humor makes you swine. We get it, she’s big. She has a show called Big Life. We just think he took it way too far. Forward to the 2:25 mark to watch him in action. BTW, Kirstie — who is 60 — rocked it on the show. We were surprised because the lady has some serious rhythm! We weren’t the only one’s who thought so, because the judges loved Kirstie’s performance too.
When we saw pregnant Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak posing for the cover of In Touch Weekly wearing what looked to be a hand-me down bra and a weird pair of sheer panties last week, we immediate thought to ourselves, “That woman has no shame!” After the shock wore off, we began thinking: A) What other celebrities have flaunted their baby bumps on the cover of national magazines and B) Was their pursuit of fame more naked than their actual bodies?
Well, as we discovered during an intense round of research, there are two types of celebrities who use their unborn children to score themselves more publicity: the Prudes and the Shameless. Not every pregnant celebrity wants to pull a Demi Moore, you see. Some, like Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Celine Dion, don’t want to offend their base by showing too much skin. Others, like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, clearly see Moore’s famous Vanity Fair cover as a necessary (and fun!) step in advancing one’s career and deem it necessary to push cultural boundaries. So, what do your favorite celebrities score on either the Prude Meter™ or Shameless Meter™? There’s only way to find out!
Another season of Dancing With The Stars is upon us! And of course that means another rag-tag group of “stars,” consisting of reality show vets, athletes, washed-up actors, models you’ve never heard of, and Disney Channel stars. We’ll break up the season 12 contestants into two groups, the first being the ones we think are viable contenders (i.e. all the athletes, and the actors who have taken on physically demanding roles) consisting of the following:Ã‚Â football player Hines Ward, boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, Karate Kid Ralph Macchio, wrestler Chris Jericho, model Petra Nemcova (she’s the one we’re pegging to be surprisingly athletic), and singer Romeo, who surely has some dance moves in his back pocket.
The second group is the batch of contestants we’re going to assume will be fun to watch but will be the first to go. No offense, y’all! They include Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson, talk show host Wendy Williams, barefoot actress Kirstie Alley, Disney star Chelsea Kane, and radio personality Mike Catherwood (who could be the greatest dancer in the world, unfortunately we’ve just never heard of him). What do you think of the new lineup? Care to divulge your early favorites? The new season premieres on March 21 on ABC.
