In one of the most shocking upsets to hit Dancing With the Stars since cemented-footed hoofer Kate Gosselin brought Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” to the ballroom, R&B star Brandy was booted from the show’s 11th season on Tuesday night, despite rivaling Jennifer Grey as a top contender for the hotly-desired Mirrorball Trophy for much of the competition.
Let’s just say Brandy’s professional partner, the always straightforward Maksim Chmrekovskiy, isn’t exactly ready to waltz away quietly.

Bristol Palin left Alaska life in the snow and spent days driving her truck to Los Angeles to compete on the 11th season of Dancing With the Stars — and it appears the decision was a wise one for the daughter of former Vice-Presidential hopeful.
Former star of MTV’s The Hills Audrina Patridge, Grammy winner and VH1 reality personality Brandy, and former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner are reportedly on their way to rumba on the forthcoming 11th season of the ballroom reality series. Jersey Shore guido Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino is also said to be in talks for a Dancing appearance.
The full list of competitors will be revealed Aug. 30 on The Bachelor Pad.
Madonna once expressed an interest in producing the critically-acclaimed new movie Precious, author Sapphire has revealed. Sapphire claims the Queen of Pop was eager to be associated with the film adapted from 1996 novel Push, the story of an illiterate, obese girl battling abuse and teen pregnancy in 1987 Harlem.
Madonna was among the first people to show an interest in adapting author Sapphire’s gritty drama into a film.
“There was this really earnest college student with his backpack on who wanted to do his first film, and then Madonna wanted to produce it,” the writer reveals in this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly.
“I was like, ‘Madonna? I don’t think this is her film,’” she added. “I remember this one producer told me that he had found Precious—and it was going to be Brandy,” a shocked Sapphire said. “Excuse me? I literally almost hung up on him.”
The post finally went to moviemaker Lee Daniels who managed to convince her with his credentials. Precious opens in theaters everywhere this Friday.
