The last time Christina Milian made headlines, it was for competing on Dancing With the Stars in 2013. Meaning? She’s the perfect candidate for an E! reality series.
E! announced Tuesday that Frasier star Kelsey Grammer is on board to executive produce a show following Milian’s life. “We simply adore Christina,” Jeff Olde, E! programming and development executive vice president, said in a statement. “She’s young, vibrant and a highly accomplished artist who has a hectic life balancing the glitz and glamour of celebrity, and the rough and tumble world of hip-hop, with the more relatable moments of being a mom, newly back on the dating scene, and trying to make things better for her family.”

Yesterday, we got a look at the trailer for E!’s first ever scripted drama, The Royals, and the life of Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley), who has her hands full trying to keep her royal children’s names—and sometimes, their body parts—out of the tabloids. But behind every powerful woman is the powerful woman who raised her, and for Helena, that’s the Grand Duchess of Oxford, played by Dynasty star Joan Collins.
From one Dynasty to another: Joan Collins is joining E!’s first scripted series, The Royals.
The upcoming hour-long drama follows a fictional British royal family through life in 21st-century London. Collins will appear as the Duchess of Oxford and mother to Elizabeth Hurley’s Queen Helena. According to People, the Duchess of Oxford is described as “the only woman in the world more formidable and imposing” than her daughter, the Grand Duchess will enter the show with “an entourage and an agenda.”
The Royals is set to premiere in 2015.
Chelsea Handler’s time spent interviewing Hollywood stars (and showering with some of them) is coming to an end. E! has announced that Chelsea Lately will end its seven-year run on August 26.
“We are very proud of Chelsea Lately’s long-running success and the unique space that the series carved out in late night television,” E! President Suzanne Kolb said in a press release. “Chelsea brought a distinct voice to late night with her acerbic wit and fearless commentary and we look forward to providing fans with a memorable send-off that lives up to that tradition. Most of all, we are grateful to the Chelsea Lately team for making this show so special for seven years.”
E! is taking its first dive into scripted television with upcoming series The Royals — and by the looks of its latest teaser, this show could be the next Gossip Girl.
The Royals follows Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley), who tries to protect her family’s image all the while living a life full of parties and secrets the media can never know about. Vincent Regan, William Moseley, Alexandra Park, Tom Austen, Jake Maskall, Ukweli Roach, and Oliver Milburn also star, with One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn taking charge of writing and directing.
E! announced its latest programming slate Wednesday, which includes — you guessed it — more Kardashians! The latest to be served up in the “Take” franchise? Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons, which will feature a newly-single Khloe and premiere in fall 2014. According to the network’s description, “the girls have their work cut out for them as they set out to relocate the Dash New York store to a hot new property while managing the initial struggles of opening their first pop-up store in the Hamptons.” Summer fun, indeed.

Meet the '#Richkids of Beverly Hills': New series shows the sweet lives of spoiled offspring -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Those housewives better make some room, because a much younger crowd is about to take over Beverly Hills. At least in reality TV terms.
Meet Dorothy, Morgan, Roxy, Brendan, and Jonny, aka, the #Richkids of Beverly Hills. They’re just like normal 25 year olds…oh who are we kidding? There isn’t anything normal about washing your hair with Dom Perignon or having a bar tab of over $10,000.
The itsby-bitsy Speidi climbed up the spout of stardom again. (Sorry.) E! has announced a new one-hour special featuring reality show pros Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, collectively known as “Speidi.” Entitled After Shock: Heidi & Spencer, the special will feature an in-depth interview with the couple, chronicling their rise to reality stardom and their lives now. They are known mostly for their roles as reality show villains on The Hills who enjoy an extravagant lifestyle of shopping sprees and extreme plastic surgery. In an E! press release, Pratt states, “The second [The Hills] ended, in 2010, the jig’s up. Now you’re irrelevant. Your fifteen minutes are up.”
The announcement comes a few weeks after Montag shared with Us Weekly the results of her recent breast reduction, downsizing from F-cups to C-cups. The special teases whether the couple will attempt a comeback, making it sound more like a pilot for a potential new reality series than a one-off event. Are you ready for the return of Speidi?
After Shock: Heidi & Spencer airs Monday, Dec. 9, at 10 p.m. on E!
After more than nine years of Mankini and chicken tetrazzini, The Soup airs its 500th episode tonight on E!, and host Joel McHale is more than a little nervous about broadcasting live for the big occasion.
“I’m very much looking forward to it — also, I have full-on dyslexia, so that should be great,” he told reporters after taping No. 499 last week. “You think I’m joking, but I am dyslexic, so it should be a really interesting live taping. I think it really brings a sense of danger.”
McHale definitely needed a few extra takes during last week’s taping (“Get ready to hear the jokes a third time!”), but he and executive producer K.P. Anderson are confident that things will go smoother for the live show. “This was the warm-up,” Anderson told McHale, who responded, “This was the warm-up? The last nine years have been the warm-up!”
So what kind of ingredients do the Soup chefs have in mind for the 500th serving?
