Simon hooking up with a Pussycat Doll?, Matt Lauer following up in Jay Leno's footsteps and more!
Tuesday's edition of Leeana's Juicy Gossip!
*Does X-Factor Judge Simon Cowell have his eyes on a Pussycat Doll? While former judge
Nicole Scherzinger is no long on the panel, this kitty is NOT the one making him purr with
pleasure… it’s Carmen Electra! Granted she’s not a member of the Pussycat Dolls music group
she has performed in the Vegas show and the pair were spotted doing some alleged heavy petting
in West Hollywood. Simon and Carmen shared a romantic dinner before escaping together in a
Rolls Royce. It’s not the first they’re linked either… she joined him as a guest judge on Britain’s
Got Talent where the flirting began.
*Is Matt Lauer following in Jay Leno’s footsteps? If so, it’s not making a switch from mornings
to nights, it’s more like taking a huge pay cut. A recent survey showed Matt’s likeability has
plummeted by 25% in the past year and a recent drop in the ratings has the network looking to
nix salaries. The Today Show is normally a cash cow for NBC, but a change in how advertisers
spend their dollars, maybe even moving them to the competition at Good Morning America, may
force the host to forfeit some of his $25 million dollar salary. Jay Leno did it to help save the
jobs of some coworkers, so will Matt? Maybe he can use this as an opportunity to help KEEP
his coworkers employed as opposed to turning his back on them…
*Fans of Beyonce are blue over the fact that Baby Blue Ivy will NOT be a big sister… at least not
anytime soon. The singer recently stunned in a curve hugging leopard print dress and when one
curve looked new, the internet went ablaze alleging the new mom of an 8-month old was with
child. While she and hubby Jay-Z aren’t tabling the idea yet, the PR Company that released the
photo said it was nothing more than just how the dress appeared in the pic.
