Here ya go ladies:

There is one reality show I absolutely love: The Amazing Race. That’s the show where pairs travel the world and complete tasks, all for a $1 million grand prize. So cool. Here's the cast list for the upcoming season:

STAR Artist Sara Bareilles is raving about the tour she’s on with the Counting Crows and Maroon 5. “I can’t say enough good things about how inspired I feel, and how grateful I am for having been able to be a part of this tour.” Actually she says traveling the country with the bands is more like summer camp, “Instead of cool activities like archery to take up our time, we throw Frisbees and sit in dressing rooms and eat way too much and laugh and actually get to know each other. Best. Camp. Ever." Sara, Maroon 5 and the Counting Crows play Milwaukee on Saturday.

You thought Paul McCartney paid a big divorce settlement? STAR Artist Phil Collins has him beat! The balding drummer shelled out $46.6 million to his third wife. Then again, Phil is used to opening up the checkbook, his second wife got $34 million. Heather Mills got $45 million from Paul McCartney.

The Rocker, starring The Office’s Rainn Wilson opens tomorrow nationally. It’s all about a drummer who gets booted out of an 80s hair band right before they become a huge success. The movie details his second shot at fame. In the movie, though you don’t see it completely, Rainn bares all telling me, “I always enjoy taking my clothes off to comedic effect. I have been making women laugh with my naked body for the last 20 years. Hopefully, audiences across America will find it just as amusing. Comedy is about commitment. You can't be afraid to make a fool out of yourself."

The huge Broadway smash Wicked is coming to the Fox Cities PAC in February. If you don’t know what it’s all about, it’s such a cool concept. It tells the back-story of the witches of the Land of Oz. The story is engaging and the songs are absolutely incredible. I’m not the only one talking about Wicked. Kristin Chenoweth, who stars on ABC’s Pushing Daisies was the original Glinda says she can’t wait for Hollywood to get a Wicked movie in production. She says, “It would be hard for me not to want to do it. But they need to hurry up before I'm 45!” Season ticket holders and groups of 20 or more can get tickets to Wicked at the Fox Cities PAC. Normal ticket sales will start at a later date.

Today, STAR Artist the Goo Goo Dolls released the second half of their Greatest Hits Collection. It’s a CD/DVD combo including live tracks, all their videos, a live concert and a very cool demo version of their huge hit “Iris.” And yes, the band is working on a new CD they hope to put out by the end of the year. If you’re really craving some new Goo material, download the AT&T Team USA Soundtrack which features a Goo Goo song called “Real.”

STAR Artist Duffy is opening for STAR Artist Coldplay at their newly announced shows in Cleveland, New Jersey, Boston, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia. Coldplay calls Duffy “brilliant.” Who are we to argue?

Henry "The Fonze" Winkler,was in Milwaukee today for the unveiling of a bronze statue of Arthur Fonzarelli. Happy Days was set in Milwaukee.

Today CBS confirmed what I told you a few weeks ago – Laurence Fishburne will officially replace William Petersen on CSI. CSI kicks off its 10th season October 9th.

Is STAR Artist Taylor Swift dating one of your kids favorite musicians? Rumor has it Taylor and Joe Jonas are seeing each other. Both are playing it cool so far…
