The debut Celine Dion Collection will feature 200 pieces from The Bugatti Group in her hometown of Montreal, Quebec. “I’m a woman who loves fashion,” said Celine. “Their vision toward my brand is impressive, and their passion for fashion is as intense as mine.

“Sister Wives” star Janelle Brown of Las Vegas plans to launch her online community Strive embracing challenges of maintaining long-term healthy lifestyles. Her hit reality-TV series aired its season finale Jan. 29, and now she’s ready to take her wellness journey to the next level.

Sign up and find details at She said: “It’s an online movement for those seeking to improve their overall quality of life. The biggest obstacles to health are fear and self-doubt. This is not about being perfect.

“Like everyone, I’ve lost and gained weight, but what I discovered is that movement is the key to having a good quality of life. I’m sharing my own trial-and-error journey to inspire people to come along with me and set reasonable short- and long-term goals.”


Planet Hollywood headliner magician Murray Sawchuck has signed on for his first USO Tour. For two weeks in April, he’ll entertain our troops at six military bases, including Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, Thule in Greenland, Andrus Island in The Bahamas and Honduras.

He’ll tour from April 5-21 with fellow magicians Howard Blackwell and Dave Chandler. Murray told me: “I always looked up to entertainers like Bob Hope, Wayne Newton and Toby Keith who always gave back to veterans and active-duty servicemen.

“This is an absolute honor to follow in their footsteps with my first USO tour.” Murray, who hails from Canada, has been a U.S. citizen since February 2009.


Fans of pop princess Britney Spears whipped out their iPhones on Wednesday night at Axis at Planet Hollywood for her hit residency “Britney: Piece of Me,” and they captured more of her than she planned during a lengthy wardrobe malfunction.

Halfway through the show during “Oops! … I Did It Again,” her racy green leotard slipped to one side exposing her chest. She giggled, gulped and retrieved the fabric while still dancing to cover herself up and finished the song none the worse for wear.

Britney appears at Axis tonight and Saturday before taking a break until her March 22 return. Jennifer Lopez slinks in Wednesday through Feb. 25 with her hit residency “All I Have.”
