JOEL DIAMOND NEXT AMERICAN IDOL JUDGE?

THE WEB GOSSIP

Elton John


SILVER BLUE IDOL --- When Simon Cowell announced that he was leaving “American Idol” after this season, the rumors flew fast and furious; everyone from the music industry’s Clive Davis to Elton John was mentioned as a possible replacement. Actually, when you think about it; would you really want to be Simon’s replacement? Look at what’s happened to poor Ellen … everyone thought she'd be a slam dunk, but when the smoke cleared and the voices returned to normalcy, she was just barely OK … definitely out of her element and just one of four, as opposed to the main cheese on her show. While the producers have wisely said nothing … adding to the suspense, one name has come up, and it’s a doozy: producer extraordinaire Joel Diamond. He the producer of Engelbert Humperidnck’s “After The Lovin’” and really a force of nature. We've been aware of Joel for years, much of it when he was based in NYC; he produced the terrific “One Night In Bangkok” by Robey, the signature song from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s much-underrated play “Chess.” He’s also worked with the likes of Helen Reddy, Rick Derringer, Benny Mardones, the 5 Browns, Ray J, Laura Branigan, Dr. Hook, the Bee Gees, David Bowie, and, in his first-ever recording, David Hassellhoff (aka Snapper); in total, 36 Gold and Platinum albums and 54 charted hits according to Billboard. He also produced in the ‘80's several solo albums with a sterling cast of characters. Interestingly enough, the solo albums were on his own record label imprint, Silver Blue Records. Truth be told, Joel was and is a consummate businessman. We were first introduced to Diamond through PR-man David Salidor, who has recently returned to represent Diamond. Also, Joel’s possesses quite the raconteur style and from all reports, would be a formidable foil for the others judges. Certainly, he’s got the industry chops to discern the good from the bad, as well as a mentoring attitude that would no doubt do the show a lot of good. Says Salidor, “Joel has ALL the necessary tools to do justice for Idol. With Simon leaving, he'd bring a much needed genuine element to the show. He’s the real deal.” “Idol” has of late not only been losing in the TV ratings to “So You Think You Can Dance,” but has suffered from a lack of knowledgeable judging. Randy Jackson is good, but not really on the cutting edge of music; Simon and Paula were actually in the business and thus, brought forth a ton of true blue knowledge. Joel would bring a terrific mixture of smarts to the show; as well as a true blue resume. He’s got our vote. Check out his site www.joeldiamond.com

Sam Mendes


BOND DELAYED – SO, last weekend EON Productions (the company who makes the Bond-movies) announced that they have suspended what was to have been Bond movie #23 … already in pre-production; with none other than Sam Mendes directing. Truth is the Bond-studio MGM, looks to be once and for all up on the chopping block, thus endangering the movie’s production and subsequent release and ownership. What this all means is that with the studio teetering on the edge of insolvency, EON didn't want to risk the new production maybe going to the creditors. Plus, they may have the right to take the Brand-franchise elsewhere … for an even better deal. In Hollyweird, you often fail upwards. Though all the films have been via MGM, the fact of the matter is that the Bond-films were the only substantial resource of the studio. Sure, they had the Pink panther movies … but, nothing equaling the Bond films. The Bond producers operate with great autonomy, and as such, have essentially all the say over what happens. Nikki Finke in Deadline Hollywood quotes a source close to the production, “It feels like EON is sending a message to MGM … if they try to continue as a stand-alone studio, don't expect to be making anymore Bond films.”

Bob And Harvey Weinstein


SHORT TAKES: Last night’s “Lost” on ABC –winding down their season, with the two-hour finale on May 23- was ... confusing. In fact, it’s really the first episode in a six-year-run that I had a problem with. It pains me somewhat to say that as there's no more serious fan than I, but with many of the arcs finally coming to fruition, there just doesn't seem to be enough time to cover them add adequately enough. My colleague Jeff Jensen, in entertainment Weekly, had almost the same opinion as I. And, for the record, he'd be BIG LOST FAN #2. Let’s hope for the best ... I don't know if you've been following; but, movie moguls Harvey and Bob Weinstein have been lobbying to buy back the Miramax name from Disney ... who they sold it to years ago for billions. The Disney/Mirarmax title has fallen on hard times and the Weinsteins (or, Bob and Harvey) want it back. Why not ... as it was the scene of many earlier triumphs including “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction.” The latest news is that they seem to have done it with help from L. A.-shopping mall magnet Ron Burkle for a price of $625 million. Miramax has a catalog of 611 films, including five unreleased titles; Burkle will put in $325 million in equity and own most of the company. The company, named for their parents Miriam and Max, will finally return home ... and, who knows, maybe some of the original-Miramax fervor will flourish at the brother’s currently home, Weinstein Films. Lord knows they could use it.

DAVID HASSELHOFF'S EX. WIFE IS ARRESTED

Pamela Bach


Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff's ex-wife has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving in Los Angeles.The California Highway Patrol said on Sunday that actress Pamela Bach was pulled over Saturday night just south of U.S. 101 on Laurel Canyon Boulevard. She was booked at the LAPD's Van Nuys jail and released later. The Highway patrol says Bach showed blood alcohol levels of .14 and .13 on a breathalyzer test. California's legal limit is .08. Bach was charged with misdemeanor hit-and-run in 2007, but the charges were later dropped when she agreed to pay damages to the woman whose car she hit. She pleaded no contest to a drunken driving charge in August and was placed on three years of informal probation, the court records show. She was also ordered to go to a treatment program and not drive with any measurable amount of alcohol in her blood. Meanwhile, according to TMZ, David Hasselhoff did not have a seizure, wasn't admitted to a psychiatric ward and is in good health, despite published reports.

Bryan Batt along with Brenda Braxton, Alison Pill, Abigail Breslin, Ben Vereen, Tommy Tune, Deborah Monk, Kenneth Cole, David Hasselhoff and Ruby Dee were snapped arriving for the Opening Night Performance of FINIAN'S RAINBOW at the St. James Theatre in New York City. Of course Broadway Photographer and Icon Walter McBride was there to get all the exciting shots. With a sparkling score of beloved standards and a whimsical story that dances between romance, satire and fairy tale, FINIAN'S RAINBOW is a musical theater treasure. Set in the mythical southern state of Missitucky, FINIAN'S RAINBOW pits a charming Irish dreamer and his headstrong daughter against the host of complications that await them in their newly adopted land: a bigoted southern Senator, a credit crisis, a pesky leprechaun and, of course, a complicated love affair that gives birth to some of the most witty, charming and heartfelt songs ever written for the stage.

DAVID HASSELHOFF LEAVES BRITISH REHAB

David Hasselhoff


Once again Baywatch star David Hasselhoff, who was admitted to a rehabilitation center in the United Kingdom earlier this week after he accidentally hit a doctor during a drinking binge, has been released. The very nice sctor, had allegedly been drinking for days in his suite at London's St. Martins Lane Hotel, prompting his assistant to call for medical help. Hasselhoff was livid to discover that Doctor Paul Ettlinger had been called and hit out, accidentally hitting the physician, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper. A source tolds the publication, "David is very hard to handle when he drinks, often very emotional and aggressive. On this occasion he became so drunk he wet his hotel bed, ruining two mattresses, and was becoming a real pain for staff. "His assistant Joe Townley was so concerned he called out a doctor. David was furious and lashed out at him - but mistakenly hit the doctor." Ettlinger then called an ambulance for David, who was taken to the U.K. capital's Capio Nightingale Hospital, a private psychiatric facility, where he reportedly spent two nights before he was allowed to check out on Thursday. A patient at the facility says, "He was recognized immediately. Everyone was thrilled The Hoff had arrived and wanted to meet him. "But the nurses were anxious to make sure he had a quiet time to recover and were telling him he needed vitamins and iron to build himself up."

Editors Extra: I have had the pleasure of Meeting David many times. I remember twice he was drunk. He was nice and fun. The first time I met him, his friends were the ones who were not so nice. Some mafia type guy chased me down 60th street demanding the film, telling me he would take care of me. The publicist for the club Lonnie Hanover thought that meant that he would give me money for the film. I thought it meant cement shoes. Needles to say, I got away from the thug. But It was not David, he was leaving the club smiling. The last time I saw David was at Michael Feinsteins in Manhattan. He was with his publicist Judy Katz. He smiled and posed for pics and was the nicest guy ever. Gave me a hug. If you ask if I think David has a drinking problem, the answer is yes. Is he a mean guy, the answer is no. He is a wonderful guy. I think he has the wrong people hanging around him and they have drained this poor guy. I think David is drained from his hard and horrible divorce. I think he feels like a failure, even know he isn't. I think he needs to buy a home away from Hollywood, maybe in the beautiful Hampton's here in New York to relax and to think about what really makes him happy. I think he needs friends around him, that really care for him and not because he is the Hoff. The Hampton's is the perfect small community. It has the old town feeling and everyone knows everyone, and at the same time you have the Hollywood touch there in the summer. It's the best place to be alone and at the same time, not alone. We wish David the very best and hope he finds some peace soon.

DAVID HASSELHOFF'S WIFE ORDERED TO PAY

David Hasselhoff


Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff has won a court victory in his ongoing legal battle with his ex-wife Pamela Bach. A judge has ordered her to cover the actor’s legal expenses. As the Hollywood couples not-so-nice divorce moves on, a court has ruled Bach has been filing frivolous legal actions against her ex, forcing him to employ his lawyer to constantly fight for him, according to TMZ.com. Bach has been told to pay David's legal bills, amounting to $7,550.80 including a lump sum of at least $3,000. Hasselhoff and Bach split in 2007 after 17 years of marriage. They have two children together.
