If Kim Kardashian’s baby turns out to be a boy, we are already bracing ourselves for Fresh Prince of Bel Air jokes now that she and Kanye West have reportedly bought an $11 million home in the ritzy neighborhood. According to TMZ, the couple are turning the 10,000 square-foot home into a 14,000 square foot “Italian-style villa,” complete with movie theater, salon, bowling alley, basketball court, and indoor and outdoor pools. With that many recreation options, we hope they don’t opt to stay home too much instead of hitting the town where we can catch site of them and Babye.
After plunking down money for a new home like that, we are still surprised they didn’t take that $3 million deal for baby pics. Must be nice to have enough money to take a moral stand like that! (Unless, of course, they’re still waiting for a better offer.) Anyway, if paying the mortgage gets tough, they could always turn to the latest tactic Khloe is trying out on the eBay site she and Lamar Odom started to raise money for his Catherine’s Kids Foundation. Khloe’s unloading old clothing, including a used sports bra!

There was a sad period in our lives last year, when we hit a dry spell in the Ryan Gosling sighting department. Silly man was off making movies and being with Eva Mendes or something instead of inadvertently posing for a thousand Tumblrs and starring in all of our dreams. That nightmare seems to be over, thank goodness, as we’ve been blessed with two trailers for upcoming movies, Gangster Squad’s release this weekend and, of course, his appearance on the red carpet of the premiere of Gangster Squad last night. We are pleased to report that the number of handsome faces he made as he escorted his mother to the movie were almost enough to make up for that earlier drought. All we need now is for him to go rescue someone on the street again and we’re all set.
Feast on our 10 favorite Ryan Gosling looks from last night:

Dina and Lindsay Lohan in 1986, following the alleged assault.
After Dina Lohan went to the New York Daily News with her story about how ex-husband Michael Lohan assaulted her in 1986 and raped her in 1990, Lindsay’s mother gave Entertainment Tonight three photos of herself with a black eye following the 1986 incident. Dina had actually spoken to the show back in September about the abuse, but the photos seem to have caught everyone’s attention now. And Michael Lohan, of course, was quick to respond.
“I didn’t punch her,” Michael told ET, reiterating his version of the incident, which he said started when Dina hit him in the back of the head with an ice tray. “I didn’t do anything deliberately to attack her. I swung out of reflex … she’s twisting everything.”
We kind of fail to see how swinging “out of reflex” is any less of an assault to a woman, by the way, especially when this reflex results in the black eye we see above. But since it’s a little too late for Dina to do anything about this, we do see his point that her timing is suspiciously self-serving. Ugh, they are both the worst.

Our friends at NickMom know a thing or two about throwing kids’ birthday parties — and not in an annoying Martha Stewart-y kind of way — so we think this depiction of what’s probably going down at Blue Ivy Carter’s first birthday party has to be on the money. Check out the rest of it here.

You know we’ve been obsessed with Amber Rose’s adorable baby bump photos for months, but the pics she posted this weekend from her baby shower blew the rest away. Not only is she still incredibly cute for someone in her eighth month of pregnancy, but she is rocking a dress that we immediately want. It’s part of designer Jeremy Scott’s Adidas Originals collection, shown above on the runway. The most remarkable thing is how much better it looks on preggo Amber than on the skinny model.
Also great is this pic of Amber and Wiz Khalifa opening presents together.
As Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer headed to court today for a hearing on charges she assaulted a woman in a Manhattan night club in November, her mother has brought to light a very different defense of the troubled 26-year-old. And it actually makes a lot of sense to us, in the saddest way. Dina Lohan went to the New York Daily News on Sunday with her story of how ex-husband Michael Lohan abused and raped her in the late ’80s and early ’90s, and brought along police reports and medical documents to prove it.
“Lindsay saw her dad abuse me — that’s why she’s so screwed up,” Dina told the paper. She described how Michael punched her in the eye during a drive home after he been drinking and snorting cocaine. She also told of a time her husband raped her in her parents’ home, where she and her kids were living apart from him. On both occasions, Dina didn’t press charges because Michael was heading to prison for fraud and insider trading.
Last week wasn’t the best for Justin Bieber: After a paparazzo was killed trying to capture photos of a driver he thought was Bieber, photos of the 18-year-old smoking a blunt made their way to TMZ. So it was a pretty good time for the singer and his PR team to turn up the charm and hype some positive stories. First up, he sent out a tweet on Saturday morning that seemed to be an apology for his alleged pot-smoking.
From the start, we’ve been skeptical about the pairing of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West — would her reality-TV personality spoil his artsy ambitions? — but today comes a good sign that ‘Ye may actually be a great influence on his girlfriend. According to TMZ, Kardashian — who made mountains of cash selling her wedding to E! and People — and her baby daddy have refused a $3 million deal from an overseas tabloid for the first pics of Babye.
Now, if you still want to be cynical, you could suspect that they’re holding out for an even bigger deal, but TMZ’s sources say they’re not planning to sell the pics at all. That’s right in line with earlier stories that they don’t plan to make the kid a TV star either. Shocking, right? Could it be that Kimye are taking a parenting tip from BFFs Jay-Z and Beyonce, who have done a frustratingly good job at keeping coverage of Blue Ivy to a bare minimum? (BTW, happy birthday, BIC!) Hmmm, something tells us that they won’t go that far — some habits are hard to break.

Bradley Cooper turns 38 today, so now seemed like as good a time as any to remind you guys that though the Silver Linings Playbook star may be a Sexiest Man Alive alumnus, he’s also never stopped being just a regular guy. Also, he will never stop being adorable Will from Alias, no matter how many times he may melt us with those baby blues and make us weak in the knees with those perfectly sculpted shoulders. Sometimes he gets sweaty at the gym, sometimes he has terrible facial hair or hat head, sometimes he breaks up with his unbelievably hot girlfriends and hangs out with his mom instead. Er, nope, all that doesn’t add up to us being able to date him though, does it? Oh, well. We’ll just wish Bradley a happy birthday and pretend he’s attainable as we look at these 20 examples of him just being a regular guy … until he goes and wins an Oscar or something this year.

Rejoice, American Downton Abbey fans, the soapiest costume drama in the land returns to TV on Sunday and hopefully you haven’t been so much Internet searching on the goings on of the Crawley family and their employees that you haven’t had the entire season spoiled for you yet. (Seriously, stop searching, because those spoilers will catch up with you!) One of the best things about the show’s return to PBS’ Masterpiece — especially now that it’s at the height of popularity — is seeing the cast in their modern street clothes, laughing and joking like their fictional counterparts never would. We’ve seen Hugh Bonneville (Robert Crawley) tweet from the subway, Robert James-Collier (Thomas) talk sexual politics in Out and those two joined by Jim Carter (Mr. Carson) in a silly Downton/Breaking Bad mash-up on The Colbert Report. Guest star Shirley MacLaine trotted out her paranormal expertise to talk about the ghosts haunting Highclere, the estate where the show is shot. Dan Stevens (Matthew Crawley) has been gracing the New York stage with Jessica Chastain in The Heiress all season, while Joanne Froggatt and Sophie McShera showed that when they put on makeup and get out of those dreadful maids’ uniforms, they’re total knockouts.
Sure, it must be fun to traipse around a fancy English estate for a living, but we get the feeling the cast revels in the chance to show the world what they’re like in real life. See for yourself in the gallery below:
