Drew News
Drew Lachey had a busy week, and Star Magazine was there to cover it all. Drew’s wife, Lea, gave birth to a baby girl, Isabella Claire, on Thursday, March 23. And it was announced that Drew will host this year’s Miss USA pageant. The pageant airs on NBC on Friday, April 21.

O’Hurley to Preside over Feud
Thanks in large part to the notoriety he gained during DwtS‘s first season, John O’Hurley has earned himself a gig as the new host of Family Feud. His duties coincide with the show’s 30th season. O’Hurley previously hosted another game show, To Tell the Truth, from 2000 until 2002.

Max’s Charity
Some of Max’s students were featured on DwtS, but he’s also on the board of directors of Dance Team USA. The organization works to encourage youth participation in Dancesport in America. They participate in a number of events each year, and one is coming up in April: the Philadelphia Festival Dancesport Championships.

Lisa Rinna: The New Face of Tupperware
According to her MySpace blog, Lisa is spending some time this week helping launch the new line of Tupperware products. That’s an endearingly goofy brand to endorse, which makes me like Lisa that much more.
