WEEK AHEAD: Hilary Gets a Musical Makeover
Plus: The Donald prepares to fight for his hair, The Bachelor romances again and more
Hilary Duff unveils a tougher sound on her new record, Dignity. PEOPLE takes a look at the disc, plus other events to watch for in the coming week:
SUNDAY, APRIL 1: Will Donald Trump lose his famous comb-over? On Sunday, the mogul will host World Wrestling Entertainment’s Battle of the Billionaires along with WWE owner Vince McMahon live from Detroit (Pay-Per-View, 7 p.m. ET). No, The Donald isn’t stepping into the ring exactly. Each “billionaire” will have a surrogate wrestler fighting on his behalf. (It’s Bobby Lashley for Trump and “The Samoan Bulldozer” Umaga for McMahon.) But the stakes are still certainly high as the loser will have his head shaved live on television. “It reminds me of when I was in military academy many years ago – my head was shaved, so I guess I’ll have to do it a second time,” Trump tells PEOPLE about his “no fear” attitude. “I think there are a lot of people that would like it very much.” Rosie O’Donnell, we’re sure, would be first in line with a pair of scissors …
MONDAY, APRIL 2: Let the rose ceremonies begin! Last season, Prince Lorenzo Borghese looked for love – this time it’s a military man on The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman (ABC, 9:45 p.m. ET). Andy Baldwin, a 30-year-old U.S. Navy Lieutenant and undersea medical officer, will look for his soulmate. So what’s he looking for? “I want a woman who is caring and who will be a wonderful wife and mother,” he tells PEOPLE. “I like a woman who can be a tomboy but at the same time get dressed up and be a lady as well.” And it seems like he may have found his perfect match. “I’m glad I took the journey, because I came out very happy on the other end.”
TUESDAY, APRIL 3: She may have started her career singing sweet pop ditties, but Hilary Duff is toughening up her act. On Dignity, her fifth album, the pop star reveals a more aggressive side – and a barbed lyrical approach. Take the title track, where she sings: “Where’s your dignity?/I think you lost it in the Hollywood Hills.” Duff admits to PEOPLE that there are songs on the album about ex-boyfriend Joel Madden, but insists that she has nothing but “good feelings” toward him and new girlfriend Nicole Richie. “She seems like a nice person,” Duff says.
THURSDAY, APRIL 5: In the new fish-out-of-water MTV reality series Adventures in Hollyhood, Oscar-winning hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia – who scored an Academy Award in 2005 for Hustle & Flow‘s anthem “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” – relocate to La La Land from their native Memphis to try to establish themselves as major players. Stay tuned to find out if adjusting will be hard out West for the group and their posse (10 p.m. ET).
