Ox Notes: September 3, 2009

Access Hollywood did a series of interviews with Dancing with the Stars 9 contestant Kelly Osbourne and, based on this one, I’m rooting for her to win.

ET has a photo gallery of the couples in rehearsal and an interview with Donny Osmond.

E! caught up with Derek Hough, who thinks 62-year-old Tom DeLay is this season’s dark horse.

Pure DwtS is following the Season 9 cast on Twitter and posted collections of recent tweets and pics.

After last night’s new episode of Top Chef Las Vegas, Bravo’s website posted blog posts by Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons and several former contestants.

Variety’s Brian Lowry writes about the notion of "reality stars," about whom one former network exec quipped: "Just like all porn performers are ‘porn stars’."

Speaking of dubious reality "stars," Project Runway‘s Tim Gunn bagged on Jon Gosselin for his ridiculous, oversized Ed Hardy shirts, describing them as emblematic of "the slobification of America."

No plans for Labor Day weekend? Plunk yourself in front of the TV for one of the many marathons available on cable. Thank goodness I don’t get the channel ActionMax, or I’d be glued to their Saturday Jaws marathon.
