Steve Jones Tries Unsuccessfully to Extract Pregger Rumors form Megan Fox in awkward Interview [video]

Big ups to Steve Jones for going where he was told not to go.  During an interview for Entertainment tonight he almost had Megan Fox trapped in a corner.

The original interview was to discuss her new sexy Sharper Image campaign, a photo from which you can see to the right.   Shaper image hired fox to do some very sexy photos, which is quite unlike the quirky chain so it was definitely newsworthy.  As Jones lull’s Megan in, he’s all charm, smiles and accent and then goes in for the kill with a super lame transition.

After asking her about her favorite gadget, he says,

“Do you know the ultimate gadget that every man wants? A baby?”

Fox is shocked.  Her face says, WTF, but her mouth says,

“A baby?…….(insert awkward pause)……Oh, I know where you’re going with this.”

Right before Megan could answer the question you can hear her publicist stopping her.  You can here it faintly in the background,


Jones, caught red handed backed off and then later apologizes during Entertainment Tonight’s airing,

“I’d like to formerly apologize to Ms. Fox for attacking her with the word ‘baby.’ Thankfully, there was a publicist there to stop me.”

The buzz is strong that her and Brian Austin Greene are expecting. I’m sure she is just waiting the 12 weeks before breaking the news.  This might be only week 3 or 4, so we have 8 more weeks of speculation.


Paula Plays Nice for the Media, But She is Pissed and Felt Blindsided…..Again!

See, I knew that Paula wasn’t ok with the firing.  How could she be?  What else does she have going on?  That’s the 2nd time that Simon has given Paula the boot.

According to RadarOnline, she heard a few weeks ago from Steve Jones that he was going to be cut and that she might also be toast.

After hearing that, Paula called up Simon to ask him what was really going on.  Simon admitted,

The powers that be at Fox didn’t think she was ‘edgy’ enough to be brought back, but that he was working on trying to convince them to keep her on. And he told her if by some twist of fate he couldn’t save her job, he would line something else up for her soon.

The funny thing is the news of the firing actually came from Simon’s lawyer, not Fox.  Hmmm….

“It was actually Simon’s lawyer who phoned her two days ago to tell her they made the decision to axe her, and although part of her expected the news, she was shocked,”

The rumors of who will fill her spot are buzzing.  The top contenders are Mariah and Beyonce  – although nothing has been mentioned officially by any of their reps to confirm or deny the rumors.   An insider tells Radar that the thought of those two upsets her,

“Paula will be really upset if one of those women ends up filing her chair, because neither woman has ever been on a panel and she doesn’t know what makes Simon, or anyone else, think someone inexperienced like that will help boost ratings.

“Simon is doing his best to blame the firings on Fox – but like Paula says, ‘Studio Execs obviously have a lot to say about what happens on their shows, but come on, I find it hard to believe anyone is going to tell Simon Cowell what to do.’”

At age 50, Paula’s options are dwindling, that’s why she is being careful to not go on record with her feelings or comments.  No need to burn a Cowell bridge, that could be a career ending move.

Simon Cowell Cleans House!! Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul follow Steven Jones – All 3 Will Not Be Returning for the X-Factor

Wow!  Before I could even get the details of Steven Jones exit, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were right behind him. WOW!!

Simon Cowell is a beast!!  There are reports that Simon wanted to take the show in a different direction, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!


Steven Jones exit is confirmed because he tweeted it,

“I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time.”

He is definitely a wrap.  I thought he was decent at best – but not good enough to take the show where it needs to go.

Scherzinger’s dismissal was confirmed by a FOX rep.  They confirmed that her contract was not renewed.  No comments were made by Fox on Paula’s status.

Nigel Lythgoe who is the executive producer of idol tweeted,

“Shocked to see Simon has fired Paula Abdul, Nicole and Steve from the X-Factor.”

That leads credibility to all the rumors.

L.A. Reid is still holding on.  There have been no comments about his status one way or the other, but things look good for him.


This is what makes Simon great in my opinion.  He has the courage to take his own advice, throw caution to the wind and make drastic changes, (even though rumor has it, that Nicole’s exit was her decision, “so she can focus on her music”).

Simon was disappointed with the shows overall performance. Despite solid ratings, he will not be happy until X-Factor is bigger then American Idol.  Period.  Now with “The voice” being a surprise hit, the bar is set even higher.

Steve Jones, weather he liked it or not was being compared to Ryan Seacrest every night it was on, which was unfair, but so is life.  Seacrest has been doing “Idol” since 2002,  comparatively Jones looked uncomfortable at best.  The show itself was simply overproduced and the judges were more worried about themselves and their careers then the talent.  The show was exhausting to watch…..

With Seacrest leaving “Idol” and the show just not being the same, there leaves room for a new champ and Simon Cowell sees the opportunity to claim the throne.  He’s not one to let opportunity pass him by. Rumors are flying on who will be the replacement judges, Mariah Carey?  Mary J. Blige?

Simon has definitely created buzz again around his show.  I might actually make it through a complete season this time around.
