Britney Spears Pays Quarter of A Million Annually for Sexy Shape

Britney wraps up final leg of her US tour for Circus with a Bahamas vacation

Britney wraps up final leg of her US tour for Circus with a Bahamas vacation

Britney looks fantastic now for her Circus tour, after a few years of struggling to get her life in order and body back into shape after the birth of her sons. I, for one, am really proud of her. Life can be messy, and living in the spotlight only makes that mess very public, so my heart goes out the her. I hope her new healthy body is a reflection of other healthy changes that we all end up needing to make as women and mothers and adults….anyhoo…enough of that. Here’s the lowdown…

We hear that Britney shells out a total of nearlt $23,000 a month to get her body back in shape. She pays $4,ooo for a private dance choreographer, $8,000 to work with elite celebrity trainer James Van Daff who also trains the Pussycat Dolls.  She thens shells out another whoping $10,ooo for diet supplements and a nutritionist. A source says “She changed the way she eats. Portion control and fresh food” are what she is focusing on.

Reportedly, Britney limits herself to about 1400 calories a day, eating steamed fish as frequently as possible and swaping water for Red bull. Once a week she has cheat days to satisfy cravings she may be having during the week.

Cheryl Burke Bikini Body

Last summer

Last summer

This week

This week

Last October, Cheryl Burke defended her curvy figure when bloggers slammed her for gaining weight. Ummm, yeah, Cheryl was a size 4, so I don’t understand why anyone in their right mind could call her fat, but whatever. Regardless, new photos of the Dancing with the Stars beauty in St. Lucia should silence any critics.

Fresh from a Caribbean vacation with her boyfriend, hottie model Maxwell Zagorski, Burke, 25,  says that shedding the pounds and maintaining her ideal weight  has been relatively simple.

“I gained a few pounds and everybody was talking about it last year,” the two-time Dancing winner says. “But taking it off was simply a matter of doing a bit more cardio to supplement my dancing. I’m also making sure I eat clean foods and healthy snacks.”

She attributes her healthier diet to boyfriend Zagorski. “He’s a much better cook than I am and it helps when we eat meals together that are healthy as opposed to going out for dinner, which I did a lot when I was single,”  she says.

On Friday night Burke will celebrate the grand opening of her third Cheryl Burke Dance studio, in Mountain View, Calif. Over the summer she’ll be working on designs for her line of fitness wear and wants to develop a line of casual workout shoes. Check out the new studio by following the link.

“There’s this huge explosion of things that have happened in my life in the past three years and I’m so grateful,” Burke says, noting that best of all, more people than ever before are taking up dancing.

“People are seeing that it’s a great alternative to going to the gym,” Burke says. “It’s a great way to do something really healthy for your body and you don’t even know it because you have so much fun doing it.”
 

 I take a ballett class, and several Zumba and Hip Hop classes every week. I completely agree!! I adore them!

KIM KARDASHIAN TONES UP FOR NEW GIG

Kim Karsashian has a new role. As a mean girl.

Kim's "get up" for the filming of How to Fit Into Your Jeabs By Friday, her DVD for curvy girls

Kim's "get up" for the filming of How to Fit Into Your Jeabs By Friday, her DVD for curvy girls

 

Kim appears on the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians is now going scripted on the new season of The N’s competitive surf drama Beyond the Break, about an all-girl surf team in Hawaii.

Karadashian will appear in four episodes beginning Monday June 8 (8 p.m. ET) as Elle, the jealous girlfriend of artist Vin, played by Michael Copon.

“The most challenging part of playing the role of Elle was just trying to be the mean girl,” Kardashian explains. “I’ve never really been that outspoken girl. It’s the confrontation that I’m not used to, so I think doing that was really kind of refreshing in a weird sick way.”

Working on the set of Beyond the Break, which will air Mondays through Thursdays in June, was the “perfect experience” for Kardashian.

“You couldn’t have it any better than filming in Hawaii on the beach,” she says. “Everyone was really nice and gave me their takes on how I should play this character and I kind of took a little bit of everyone’s advice.”

Will Kardashian be fielding any more scripts in future? “Acting was kind of fun,” she says. “You never know, I might want to do that a little more.”

Check out her new work out DVD to see what Kardashian has been up to the last few months. Kim says that her DVD is targeted for curvy girls, and that she wanted to feature a look that was not all “skinny girls” working out, and that she wanted to show a more attainable body for those like her who have a figure with a little junk in the trunk.

She also wanted to keep the video fun and with her image of being on the cuting edge of fashion. She talked about it in her official blog.

 “The first day was my ultra glam day!” she wrote of her first day of shooting. “The shoot is very stylized and fashion forward. I didn’t want to wear typical workout clothes.”

Currently, there are three DVDs to choose from: The Ultimate Butt Body Sculpt, Amazing Abs Body Sculpt and Butt Blasting Cardio Step.

Each DVD features Kim and her personal trainers Jennifer Galardi and Patrick Goudeau taking you through a complete exercise routine that incorporates resistance training exercises, stretches and blasts of cardio. The DVD series is a fun cross between a Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s episode and a workout video, as in between routines you can get an insiders glimpses of Kim’s wardrobe, make-up touch-ups and behind-the-scenes conversations.

Filmed in her own Parisian-influenced apartment, Kim doesn’t disappoint as she combines her trademark kitty-cat diva persona with her love of the spotlight and fashion.
