The latest news on today's hottest celebrities ...

'DANCING WITH THE STARS:' Helio Castroneves and Drew Lachey -- along with their professional dance partners -- were eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars" in Los Angeles.

Both the race-car driver and the singer were past "DWTS" champions.

This marks the first double elimination of the all-stars edition of the show. Dancers make it to the next round of competition through a combination of the judges' scores and viewers' votes.

Still in the running with their professional dance partners for the coveted mirror ball trophy are Sabrina Bryan, Bristol Palin, Kirstie Alley, Apolo Ohno, Gilles Marini, Melissa Rycroft, Kelly Monaco, Shawn Johnson and Emmitt Smith.

Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet are the co-hosts of the show.


MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY: U.S. actor Matthew McConaughey has lost 30 pounds to play a man suffering from AIDS in the film "The Dallas Buyer's Club," People.com said.

The 42-year-old actor, who is known for his active lifestyle and chiseled physique, has looked gaunt and weak in recent photos due to the drastic weight loss, but that is all part of his plan.

"I should not look healthy by the time I'm doing this," McConaughey told Larry King's Ora TV web series "Larry King Now" in July.

"It's a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse," he told King. "[I'm] drinking a lot of tea ... It takes a while for your body to understand that it has to feed off of itself and that you're not going to give it something else from the outside."


RIHANNA: Pop stars Nicki Minaj and Rihanna were each nominated for four American Music Awards in Los Angeles Tuesday.

The 40th anniversary AMAs are to be broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE Nov. 18 on ABC.

Christina Aguilera is confirmed to perform on the show, while additional acts and presenters will be announced soon, the network said.

Drake, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, One Direction and Usher earned three AMA nominations apiece, while Carrie Underwood, Chris Brown, fun., Gotye, J.Cole, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Bryan and Pitbull are all up for two prizes.

The 2012 Artist of the Year nominees are Bieber, Drake, Maroon 5, Perry and Rihanna.

"The 40th American Music Awards will once again represent the epitome of pop culture, featuring today's biggest stars and music icons all on one stage," producers Allen Shapiro, Orly Adelson and Larry Klein said in a joint statement Tuesday.


KALEY CUOCO: Actress Kaley Cuoco is to return as host of the People's Choice Awards telecast in Los Angeles for a second year, producers said Tuesday.

The event honoring fan favorites in movies, music and TV is to take place Jan. 9 at the Nokia Theatre and will air on CBS.

"It's an honor to return as host of the 2013 People's Choice Awards and kick off awards season with one of the most fun events of the year," Cuoco said in a statement.

"I am so thrilled that Kaley will be joining us again as host for this year's People's Choice Awards," said executive producer Mark Burnett. "She is such an engaging performer who brings an undeniable energy and passion to our stage. There is no doubt she will be a key part of what makes this year's show a can't miss event."
