Gilles Marini is currently competing on the All-Stars season of “Dancing With The Stars” and recently he visited the hospital for an injury. Poor Gilles, anyone wanna give him a hug? Ha.
Reportedly, the actor tore his hamstring during rehearsals for the popular dancing competition. That wasn’t enough to knock him out of the competition itself, but he did have to get checked out. The show made its fifteenth season debut on Monday where Gilles was showing off his fancy footwork.
He said that he was worried with regard to the injuries that he picked up during his practice run for Monday. He was thinking that his injuries would keep him from succeeding on the show, but thankfully that was not the case.
He took to his official blog for Parade.com, saying, “I had a few set back during rehearsals. I tore my hamstring and a joint in my lower back and I wasn’t sure if they would affect my performance, but I pushed on and realized nothing can stop me once I am on that dance floor.”
He also took to his official Twitter page to discuss another visit to the hospital later today. His Foxtrot with Peta Murgatroyd has given him grief, so he plans to have himself checked out once more. He tweeted, “Heat and Ice! Doing this all evening! Tomorrow Hospital at 10 to assess the damage! Then, no matter what I’m practicing!”

Recently, Lady Gaga took some heat in the media over her announcement that she gained 25 pounds. Now, she’s fighting back against her detractors. On Tuesday, Gaga announced her new movement called A Body Revolution 2013 on her website, LittleMonsters.com. The initiative encourages fans of Mother Monster to embrace their flaws.
She revealed on the site, “My mother and I created the BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION for one reason: to inspire bravery. This profile is an extension of that dream. Be brave and celebrate with us your ‘perceived flaws,’ as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous.”
She posted several photos of herself in a yellow bra and underwear to show off her trim figure. On the first photo she uploaded, she said, “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15.” In another post, she said, “Now that the body revolution has begun, be brave and post a photo of you that celebrates your triumph over insecurities.”
Another posting on the site showed another photo with the caption, “But today I join the BODY REVOLUTION.” Aother said, “To inspire bravery”. The final photo was captioned, “and BREED some M&therf*cking COMPASSION.”
She said with regard to the fan response, “I have been startled and overwhelmed with pride and emotion the past few days. Gratitude mostly. Seeing you post photos of things on your bodies and in your minds that you feel society tells you you should be ashamed of. You are showing them you have no shame.”
She went on to say, “My weight/loss/gain since I was a child has tormented me. No amount of help has ever healed my pain about it. But YOU have. My boyfriend prefers me curvier, when I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I’m happy. Happier than I’ve ever been. I am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny. This is who I am. And I am proud at any size. And I love you, and want you to be proud in any form you may take as well.”
You go girl!

R & B singer Chris Brown and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger stepped out to the Supperclub in Hollywood recently. Since photographers were on the scene to snap pictures of them, it would appear that they were kissing each other. The photos are grainy, but it looks like he leaned in for a quick peck. Just as rumors hit a fever pitch, Nicole is chiming in to say that there was no kissing action going down whatsoever.
Nicole’s rep released a statement regarding the issue saying, “There is absolutely no truth to the ridiculous story regarding Nicole and Chris Brown. The photos that have surfaced are of old friends who were trying to talk at a very loud club. I guarantee there will be no photos of them kissing. This is a non-story.”
Chris’ rep also added, “No story here. They were not kissing. They are friends, and have been for years. They were talking at a club that was plating loud music.”
“X17Online” reported that a source at the club started the rumors after seeing the two making out. Their source revealed, “They were dancing close for a while and being all touchy-feely and finally Chris leaned into her. She put her head on his shoulder and they started kissing! I couldn’t believe Chris was being so obvious about it!”
Were they caught out kissing? Or were they just trying to talk in a loud club like their reps have said? What do you think?
