Looks like Sarah Palin is coming to the Discovery Channel.

A deal for the former governor and current professional celebrity's reality series, Sarah Palin's Alaska, is expected to be announced by the network in the coming days.

Sarah Palin Gets Fired Up!

The travel series, produced by Mark Burnett, would feature Alaska's ex-governor giving tours of the state. Hopefully some Todd Palin snow machine shots are featured.

Sarah Palin started shopping around the show this month. Major networks passed, but Discovery showed interest. It could air on Discovery or its sister network, TLC.

Palin is asking $1.2 million per episode for Sarah Palin's Alaska, making it one of the most expensive nature series of all time, and constitute a seemingly ridiculous price, but if someone's willing to pay it, that's the free market for ya.

This is America, don'cha know!

HALF-BAKED ALASKA: Sarah Palin's new nature series might finally make her #1 ... at least on THG's list of most overpaid and overexposed celebrities out there.

** UPDATE: The show will air on TLC and Palin will, indeed, receive $1.2 million per episode. See, she's a regulr hockey mom, just like you!

Phil Spector has already been roughed up by the legal system. Now the convicted killer and certified creep is receiving a new taste of jail house justice!

The hot-tempered music legend is minding his tongue after having several teeth knocked out by a fellow inmate at the state prison in Corcoran, Calif.

"Phil has quite a mouth on him," says longtime pal Steven Escobar. "Not everyone understands his humor. He said the wrong thing to the wrong inmate."

Lacking any of his trusty firearms, poor Phil Spector wound up with a bruised nose, a black eye and the loss of a couple of caps, according to Escobar.

This is Phil Spector. This is just terrifying.

"He mouthed off to a big guy, who punched him," a source says of Phil, who's serving 19 years to life for shooting Lana Clarkson in the mouth in 2003.

"At first, Phil said that he fell down a flight of stairs," says Escobar of his incarcerated buddy. "Later, he told family and friends what really happened."

A spokesman for Spector's wife, Rachelle, initially corroborated that there was a jail house incident in November, telling the N.Y. Daily News: "There are safety concerns."

"We don't want the people who put him in this position to retaliate."

Rachelle did a 180, saying: "Phil was not assaulted. Absolutely not."

Mmm hmm.

It all begins ... with a choice.

The time for moping around in New Moon is over, and the time to take action has arrived. Soon, so will Eclipse in theaters, as advertised in this dark new poster.

Featuring Bella front and center with Edward and Jacob looking hot in back, the poster is actually a lot like previous ones for the third movie in the Twilight saga.

But the colors are, like, totally dark and gloomy now. This is deep, ominous stuff. Things are about to get very real, and much like Robsten, we can't wait for it:

The choice is Bella's June 30.

If you haven't seen the full Eclipse trailer, we suggest you do so now. If you already think the film is being overhyped, you're totally right ... but THERE IS NO ESCAPE!

Nadya Suleman has fallen on hard times. Might she be rescued by a few hard times of a very different nature? You never know, people. You just never know.

Octomom is reportedly on the verge of foreclosure on her California home for missing a series of California mortgage loan payments. ASTONISHING news.

Fortunately for the cash-strapped mother of 14, a knight in shining armor is offering to ride to the rescue. The only caveat? He will be riding her. Hard.

The adult entertainment giant known as Vivid has offered to end her financial woes, provided Octomom star in one of their hard core films as payment.

Should she do it?


"So ... I have to do what?!" [Photo:]

Last year Vivid offered her $1 million to star in a film with eight guys. No idea where they came up with that number, but good to see they're so persistent.

Vivid claimed that Nadya Suleman had until close of business Tuesday to make her mortgage payment, and was hoping to work out a deal with her by then.

Before she scoffs at the idea, she should remember that Kim Kardashian turned the publicity surrounding her Vivid sex tape with Ray J into a huge career.

It also beats living on the street, although we're sure Octomom has a few taxpayer-funded avenues yet to explore. Heaven forbid she actually get a job ...

Former Death Row Records head honcho and occasional hard ass criminal Suge Knight allegedly beat and robbed rapper Yukmouth and is wanted by police.

Sources say the attack on the rapper, whose name is quite apt, albeit misspelled, took place at a Ralph's supermarket in the San Fernando Valley last night.

According to a law enforcement source, Suge and roughly 10 members of his posse allegedly beat up Yukmouth and then took $92,000 worth of jewelry.

In the world of Suge, he went easy on Yuks.

SMOKED: Yukmouth apparently was for crossing Suge Knight.

Sources say Suge and his entourage are suspects and that authorities want to question them. This has happened to Knight probably a few hundred times before.

Also, there's reportedly a previous misdemeanor warrant out for Suge's arrest, which puts him right up there in DMX's league in terms of multiple court dates.

The moral of the story: DO NOT MESS WITH SUGE KNIGHT.

Seriously, unless you are Akon's manager and can lay him the f*%k out, it's just not worth getting on his bad side. Oh, don't call him Marion, either, BT-dubs.

Yes, that's his real name. Marion. MARION! What a douche.

The 10th season of Dancing with the Stars is officially underway, and while we already ran down Monday's results, here are some things you might have missed:

Dedicated to dad: Shannen Doherty signed on to do the show for her father, Tom, who suffered a stroke in December, and wept after her debut Viennese waltz.

“I couldn’t keep it together,” the original Beverly Hills: 90210 star said. “I always said I’d never be that girl that cried on camera, but I did. Oh well, it’s my Daddy.”

Brooke brings it. Brooke Burke's co-hosting debut was a success, for one reason “Having a partner like Tom [Bergeron] who’s impeccable helps,” Burke said.

Just wing it: As for another one of Monday evening's surprise success stories, Pamela Anderson claims she “has never rehearsed for anything a day in her life.”

Her sexy bed head-inspired cha cha was surely worth the hours she and her partner, newcomer Damian Whitewood, logged in the studio the past three weeks.

“It was a lot of training,” says Anderson. “We want to do something different every time. It’s not always going to be sex, drugs, rock and roll, ripping off clothes.”

No? Shame.

Pamela Anderson was inspired by Pamela Anderson last night.

Star struck. Cheryl Burke sure was. Rehearsing with Chad Ochocinco in Miami, he lives “was like being with the President,” she joked. “He’s the king of Miami."

"People stopped their cars to say hello. He has a great life," she says, though he has to work on "his McDonald’s-heavy diet ... no idea how he has a 12-pack."

The girls of Jake Pavelka. The Bachelor may be over, but he's still got women following him everywhere. Jake's fiancee, Vienna Girardi was front and center.

Joining Vienna were the other ladies in Pavelka’s life - his mother, Sally, former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand, and even The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris.

All the women were rooting for pilot, who turned in a respectable waltz with Chelsie Hightower. Performing in front of the live audience “was awesome,” he said.

Who are you rooting for on Dancing with the Stars?

Perhaps we didn't give Radar Online and its vague, anonymous sources enough credit, because it looks like Kim Kardashian-Reggie Bush breakup rumors are true.

Sources confirm to E! News that the reality star and her Super Bowl champion NFL star beau have called it quits for real. So what was the issue this time around?

Hotel Bound

The "increased fame and crazy busy schedule" of Kim have been an ongoing source of conflict for the twosome, who reunited last August after a quick breakup.

While Kim's in South Beach shooting Season Two of Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Reggie, who has always had trouble with the spotlight, has been out in NYC.

She was by his side as he won the championship with the New Orleans Saints this winter, and then vacationed in Costa Rica. But following that, things went south.

IT'S OVER: So ... how long until Kim and Reggie reunite again?

We may never learn exactly why, as the couple mutually decided to part ways a few days ago and have agreed not to discuss the split in public, says a source.

Of course, this being Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush, another reunion between the running back and world's greatest body isn't completely out of the question.

They do truly love each other and there's no bad blood, say insiders close to the pair who say they're even open to the idea of reconciling further down the road.

Just the same, "they need to be apart" right now. Sad news to report for us, but also good, we suppose, in the sense that it seems like it's what they both wanted.

Besides, now there's at least a 0.01 percent change Ray J can dump whatever skank he picked on his reality show and swoop in for another romp with Kim.

With allegations flying that he engaged in a tawdry tryst with Michelle McGee, both Sandra Bullock and Jesse James have been interviewing divorce lawyers.

Sandra's reps have been in touch with several high-end attorneys, including Lance Spiegel, whose clients have included Charlie Sheen and Michael Jackson.

As for Jesse James, we're told his business people have contacted several lawyers as well, but the likely cheating bastard will not be initiating the divorce.

His reps are asking the divorce attorneys "if they'd be interested in taking the case" if Sandra Bullock files first, which sources indicate she is likely to do.

Then again, we would have bet on Elin Woods doing the same, and we all know how that turned out. If Tiger can stay married, all bets are off for Sandra.

As for whether a divorce petition will be filed between Bullock and Jesse James, one source close to the couple simply said that "Something's happening."

  • Jesse James: Outlaw
  • Our Girl Sandra

Sandra Bullock has yet to comment on the Jesse James cheating rumors and potential split, but the scandal has caused her to miss two premieres of The Blind Side.

The Academy Award winner had originally planned also to travel to Berlin to promote the film, but abruptly suspended her promotional plans set for Monday evening.

"Warner Bros. issued a statement on Tuesday, March 16 stating that Sandra Bullock would not be traveling abroad due to unforeseen personal reasons," her rep said.

Looks like she's unavailable indefinitely, too: "Obviously that included everything that was scheduled for the European tour which included press and two premieres."

One can see why Bullock might want some time alone. In the span of less than a week, rumors have surfaced that her husband has been banging some tattoo model.

It wasn't just a one-time fling, either. McGee herself detailed the relationship with James as one that included frequent sexy time. She's also a stripper and porn star.

Moreover, both "Bombshell" McGee and her husband have been tied to Nazi pictures. If and when the Jesse James Nazi photo breaks, her lawyer will have a field day.

Tell us what you think: Sandra Bullock should ...

Ke$ha is a rising music star. The loquacious 23-year-old is just as well known for her off-stage antics and comments, like making out with Adam Lambert.

Or calling out Britney Spears for her lip-syncing bull$h!t.

Or asking John Mayer where his d!ck's at right now.

Or saying she'd love to breast feed Justin Bieber.

Yup, if nothing else, you can usually count on Ke$ha to give you some quality sound bites. She's also easier on the eyes than her weird persona may let on.

Once you get past that smudged makeup and tangled weave (left), there's a pretty hot chick in there somewhere ... or is there?! You tell us by voting here:

Fans can see them together in the new Eclipse video, but separate work demands have Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson longing for one another in real life.

Rob is in Europe shooting Bel Ami, while Kristen remains in L.A., ironing out details for her upcoming film, K-11. The long distance relationship is hard on them.

“They’re counting the days till they start Breaking Dawn,” a source reports.

That would be the fourth film in the Twilight saga, scheduled to begin production in the fall. For now, the days of possible neck nuzzling are few and far between.

  • R-Pattz Pic
  • Runaways Star

ROBSTEN REUNION: Both hotties reportedly yearn for one. Hard.

Thus, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart work hard to keep romance alive: “They’ll have to make do with calls, texts and romantic e-mails,” the source adds.

Kristen attended Rob’s Remember Me premiere in NYC, but he was too busy filming Bel Ami overseas to return the favor at Kristen’s The Runaways premiere.

Just the same, Robsten is not about to give up their love that easily. The couple is said to be "counting down the days" until Breaking Dawn begins filming.

They're not the only ones.
