The latest person said to be in talks to join "American Idol" as a judge is pop star Nicki Minaj.

The "Starship" singer could be the next big name to join Mariah Carey on the reality singing competition.

According to Us Weekly, Nicki, 29, will definitely sign on to judge.

"I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it," an insider told the mag. "A few more slight things to sign off on, but it is happening."

In July, Mariah confirmed that she was going to appear on the show and it has been reported that she'll earn almost $18 million for one season.

It appeared there was just one seat left to fill, when a source hinted that current judge Randy Jackson may be moved into a mentoring role. Now, with possibly two judge's seats open, Nick Jonas' name has been floating around as a possibility to fill the final seat.

Nick confirmed the rumors on Twitter, saying "I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol. And it would be a dream come true if it happens."

Unconventional family

Talk about amicable exes.

According to E! News, Charlie Sheen threw a birthday party for his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller. But that's not the crazy part. His partner in party planning? His other ex-wife, Denise Richards.

Denise reportedly threw a pool party for Brooke's 35th birthday and invited family and friends -- including all of their kids.

"Brooke and Denise have spent some time together lately and there is a budding camaraderie there," a source told E! News, and also shared that all the kids have a good relationship with each other and the girls "are like real big sisters to them."

Apparently those with Adonis DNA stick together.

Saved by watching TV

Rosie O'Donnell wrote on her blog Monday that she suffered a heart attack last week and is now recovering at home.

Rosie, 50, said she survived thanks to watching TV and doing a quick Internet search when she was having chest pains and became nauseous.

"Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally," she wrote, referring to seeing Bayer ads that recommend taking aspirin for people who think they are having a heart attack.

"They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here," she wrote.

Rosie said she had a stent put in after doctors discovered her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked.
