Kirstie Alley has lost 100 pounds since her peak weight. That's amazing.

But how does the Dancing With the Stars finalist plan on keeping it off?

On New Year’s Day, Alley launched 100 Days of Dance, a program in which she encourages people to dance for 100 consecutive days in order to lose weight or stay fit.

"I want everyone to experience some version of Dancing with the Stars," says Alley, 60. "People don't have to do monotonous, zombie workouts that are boring."

"Dancing is free and you can do it anywhere and any time."

The actress, now a size 6 and 130 lbs., says she backs up her big talk, staying fit by dancing 1-2 hours a day and following the diet plan Organic Liason.

She'll post videos of herself dancing on the site for 100 days starting on Sunday and she hopes to spotlight exotic locales with special guests along the way.

Ah, the first Monday of the year. It's that time again. The Bachelor is back, baby!

Our relationship with the ABC franchise remains complicated as ever. Neither love-hate, nor unconditional affection, nor unabashed disgust, it's hard to define.

What we do know is that Ben Flajnik captured our hearts last season when he was rejected by Ashley Hebert. That was rough, but he has NO REGRETS!

Follow this link for The Bachelor spoilers we know so far, including the rumored winner. Then join us for THG's +/- Bachelor season premiere recap!

Ben Flajnik, Mole-Free

WILL YOU ACCEPT THIS AIRBRUSHING: Ben F. is retouched and ready to go!

At the end of the day, and two-hour episode, despite the contrived nonsense that is The Bachelor, Ben somehow comes off as a genuine, All-American guy.

Will the California winemaker fall madly in love? Will it last? Will discarded women cry along the way? Will some people be there for the wrong reasons? 

Possibly, probably not, definitely and most likely.

For all the scripted BS, cue cards, misleading promos and manufactured drama, we were excited to see the season premiere, and it didn't let us down ...

Over 1,500 mourners turned out today for a memorial service in honor of Ben Breedlove, an 18-year old from Texas who died from a heart attack on Christmas Day.

Prior to his passing, however, Breedlove posted a few YouTube videos that detailed his brushes with death and his appreciation for life. He showed no fear of whatever lay ahead, as depicted below:

"It's exciting to know that Ben planted a seed in people's mind to begin thinking about things that really do matter in life," Ben's mother, Deanne Breedlove, told ABC News' Austin affiliate KVUE at the memorial. "You know, we all have hope. Everyone has challenges, but we have a real hope and he saw that. He felt the peace of God when he had those glimpses into heaven and heavenly presence."

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart got down and dirty with each other on New Year's Eve.

The American Idol judge and the 24-year backup dancer spent the weekend in Miami Beach, according to People, starting the party on Thursday night at nightclub Amnesia.

"They were very sexy with each other, dancing and bouncing around and making out," a witness says, adding that the pair hung out until 3 a.m. "They couldn't help but attract attention, although Jennifer was trying to lie low from onlookers."

Marc Anthony is reportedly steamed over J. Lo's romance with Smart, even threatening to take away custody of her children, but another source says Lopez looked "very happy" at the hot spot.

She and Smart are hotter than ever, in fact, as insiders confirm they went out on a yacht Friday afternoon, while J. Lo went shopping with her daughter on Saturday afternoon.

The couple stayed at a private residence all weekend and rang in 2012 at the Soho Beach House with friends.

Take that, Marc!

With just one day remaining before the Iowa caucuses kick off the GOP primary process, Ron Paul dinged surging rival Rick Santorum for being a fiscal liberal.

Paul said the former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania and staunch social conservative, who has gained traction of late, voted for too much spending while in Congress.

"I mean, have you looked at his record? Go look at his record," Paul told CNN.

Accompanied by son Rand Paul, Ron continued: "He spends too much money. He wasn't leading the charge to slash the budgets and vote against big government."

Rand Paul, who was elected to the U.S. Senator from Kentucky in 2010, added that Santorum's voteing history proved he wasn't a true conservative.

"He voted to double the size of the Department of Education," Rand Paul said. "He voted to expand Medicare and add free drugs for seniors and he has voted for foreign aid."

"Those are not conservative principles ... 77 percent of the American people are opposed to foreign aid and Rick Santorum has voted for it every time it's come down."

Ron Paul, who is running neck-and-neck with Mitt Romney and Santorum in Iowa, again addressed a potential third-party bid should he fail to win the GOP nomination.

"I have no plans in doing that," Paul said. "Tomorrow is a big day. We'll see what happens but I have no intention of doing that, no plans and no desire."

Some people have way too much time on their hands, but their creativity entertains us day in and day out! Case in point: One devoted fan of The Hunger Games.

The film's actual trailer was released in November, and this fan-made version, using Legos to reenact nearly every frame, is surprisingly accurate and true to form.

The Hunger Games arrives in theaters March 23, and after seeing this homage, we can't wait to see the movie ... and hopefully Katniss and Co. in special edition Legos.

Watch the Lego version and the official trailer below:

Jersey Shore Season Five kicks off this week, and star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is marking the occasion by taking her long locks in a new, fiery direction: red.

"Sneaky peak! I went mega red! My @BradleyStyleNYC is genius!" the 24-year-old Tweeted to the 3,920,728 people who follow her for reasons unknown.

Based on the Snooki photos she and other sites posted, she appears to have lightened her all-over shade and added bold red highlights and extensions.

Hair isn't the only thing Polizzi has changed. In recent weeks, her weight loss has been well documented, with Snooks slimming down to 98 pounds.

Crazy. Anyway, what do you think of Snooki's red hair?

Revelers everywhere celebrated New Year's Eve watching Dick Clark attempt a countdown, listening to music, drinking champagne or, in some cases, kissing Lady Gaga.

Injured Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, meanwhile, spent Saturday night in the hospital. That's no fun, but at least he had a sense of humor about it.

The perennial fantasy football stud wrecked his knee in the Vikings' win over Washington on Christmas Eve, ending his season. He had successful knee surgery Friday.

That meant celebrating New Year's in bed, but Peterson was still in a festive mood:

Hopefully the hospital staff let Adrian enjoy that ice cream. Give the guy a break!
