Oksana Grigorieva Not in “Dancing With the Stars” Talks

RadarOnline has done incredible work obtaining the series of recorded telephone conversations in which Mel Gibson allegedly rages against estranged ex Oksana Grigorieva.

Today, though, the site fires up a Grigorieva “exclusive” of another kind… and Gossip Cop has to extinguish it.

“EXCLUSIVE: Oksana Grigorieva In Talks For Dancing With The Stars,” reads the site’s headline.

The Russian beauty is “in secret negotiations to appear in the next season of the hit ABC television show,” explains the report.

Unfortunately (and conveniently) for RadarOnline, Grigorieva’s recently departed publicist “masterminded the talks,” and his exit puts the deal “in jeopardy.”

Says a so-called source, “[DWTS] would have given her a lot of money, not violated the gag order and promoted her as a talented musician, all while softening her public image in front of more than 40 million viewers each week.”

Or, in reality…

It was never in the works in the first place.

Rather than leaving an offer on the table, as RadarOnline contends, Grigorieva was never even in discussions with the DWTS producers.

While the official rep will not “comment on casting rumors,” a source involved with the hit show tells Gossip Cop the rumor “couldn’t be further from the truth.”

New “Larry King”? NBC & CNN to Share Piers Morgan



(GettyImages.com)

Piers Morgan is one step closer to replacing Larry King after NBC executive Jeff Gaspin confirmed that the “America’s Got Talent” host also has a deal with CNN.

The British TV personality’s “Talent” commitment at NBC had been a potential stumbling block to King’s seat.

But when asked at the TCA Press Tour whether a recently retooled agreement between Morgan and NBC meant NBC and CNN would be sharing his talents, Gaspin responded, “Yes.”

Morgan has been considered the front runner for King’s 9:00 pm talk show spot, even though King himself has reservations.

There has still been no official word from CNN.

Gossip Cop will have updates.

Jennifer Aniston’s Gerard Butler Movie “Diss” Dismissed



(GettyImages.com)

The tabloids are so desperate to stoke drama between Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler, they’re now inventing rumors about casting.

“Jen Disses Gerard,” proclaims Star magazine, which claims Aniston “declined” Butler’s request that she play the leading lady in Consent to Kill, his upcoming thriller.

The pair worked together in The Bounty Hunter, sparking months of (wrong) romance rumors. Now Star is trying to make it seem like Aniston personally rejected Butler’s movie offer.

“Jen was flattered but said ‘no thanks,’” says an “insider” for the tab. “Bounty Hunter didn’t exactly set her career on fire.”

Star isn’t exactly “on fire” with its reporting, either. A rep for Butler tells Gossip Cop the report is “completely false.”

Claim: Britney Pressuring Jason Trawick About Marriage



(ShowbizSpy.com)

Britney Spears is letting her emotions run away with her!” begins a Showbiz Spy post.

Uh, huh…

The site goes on to explain, “Sources say the troubled singer — who has been married twice before — is pestering boyfriend Jason Trawick to walk her down the aisle!”

A so-called Showbiz Spy “source” claims, “She keeps bugging him about marriage and he’s finding it annoying.”

Equally annoying are stories that aren’t fact-checked.

A source close to the singer confirms to Gossip Cop that the story is absolutely “untrue” and everything remains the status quo.

Guess Showbiz Spy just let its “emotions run away.”
