More Babies – And Bad Baby Names – For Ash And Pete?

Ashlee Simpson

Even though Ashlee Simspson just gave birth to son Bronx last November, she’s rumored to be knocked up again! The singer/actress and her husband, Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, are apparently prepping to have baby number two. According to this report, Ash is “just a few weeks along” and is “beyond thrilled,” which, ya know, is what every celeb says when they find themselves with buns in their ovens.

The couple is supposedly planning to wait a few months before making the announcement, but tabloids are already claiming that Ashlee got pregnant simply because she is desperate to hold on to her hubby. “… She loves Pete and wants to hang on to him. She believes this second baby will really clinch the deal,” said a source.

Yep, according to the tabloids, the only way a lady can keep her man is by trapping him with a baby. Even we don’t buy that kind of BS. If Ash is pregnant, Pete’s probably thrilled – if only so he can try to top Bronx Mowgli Wentz in the terrible baby name department. Good luck with that!  [Photo: GettyImages]

Ciara And Kim Kardashian: Bored BFFs

The attention-loving Kim Kardashian wasn’t shy about her plans yesterday. She took to her beloved Twitter to tell the world, “Shopping w the girls! Then gonna grab a bite to eat @ the Ivy! Haven’t been in so long! Yummy food but lots of people!”

The girls included her new best buddy Ciara, who she’s been spotted with all over Los Angeles. But apparently the gal pals don’t have much to chat about while dining at the notoriously celeb-cluttered restaurant  – the pair was spotted staring at their Blackberries instead of girl talkin’. Maybe they were just too busy BBMing each other to actually speak?

Anna Faris Does The Unthinkable

How dare she. Preposterous! Just because Anna Faris is a hot blond actress with great legs who has decent comic timing she thinks she can get away with attending a Very Important Red Carpet Event — like, say, the launch of the T-Mobile Sidekick LX — in the exact same outfit she wore while shopping earlier in the day?

Oh Anna, we had such high hopes for you. But at least you managed to flick your bangs to one side before striking a pose on the carpet. We’ll give you that.

Madonna To Marry Jesus, Says Dad

madge-n-jesus

Jesus Luz’s father has spoken out to confirm Internet gossip that his son is going to “marry” cougar girlfriend Madonna in a Kabbalah commitment ceremony. Speaking to a Brazilian magazine, Luiz Heitor Pinto da Luz blasts claims that she’s paying for English lessons for him, but surprisingly confirms that they’re living together and things are getting serious.

“He is very happy and this ceremony would just confirm that. My understanding is that this is just a consequence of what is happening. He is already living with her. I don’t know if there will be an actual wedding. From what I have read there could be a sort of ritual, but I don’t know Kabbalah … to know if it’s valid and legal,” he said.

Far be it from us to suggest this may be a little, um, rushed. Instead, we’ll just smile and make out that we think this is a really Good Idea! Mid-life crisis — what mid-life crisis? [Photo: Getty Images]

Bodyguard Denies Kate Gosselin Affair, “Expert” Disagrees

bodyguardkate

Who’s telling the truth: Steve Neild or Us Magazine? Neild, Kate Gosselin‘s friend and bodyguard, has denied that the pair are screwing their way through her book tours. In a statement from his security firm:

Tabloid media is doing what people love it for doing; skewing information, misinterpreting, and embracing garbage and gossip. Steve Neild’s and our firm’s client relationships are, always have been, and always will be of the highest professional standard. No allegation of conduct inconsistent with this high standard has any merit whatsoever.

While his firm says “no,”  Us Magazine’s body language expert Janine “The Lyin’ Tamer” Driver thinks the above photo says “aww yeah, I’m like Brad Pitt up in that thang, keep it on the hush.”

The fact that that they are passing some travel documents to one another without looking at each other is what body language experts call a ‘Probing Point’ or a ‘Hot Spot.” We usually look at the person we are handing something to, but to not do that sends the message that they might be trying to convince us of something, i.e. that they have no connection.

We saw similar ‘convincing’ body language with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt during the promotion of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but we all know there was more to the story there!

She’s blinded us with science! Driver admit this isn’t proof or anything, but we’ve all seen Lie To Me. Something secretive and sexy is afoot! Either that or she’s got a book to promote. But maybe both!

Criss Angel Makes Friend’s Cat Disappear

Criss Angel

Cheesy magician Criss Angel is being accused of stealing Vegas comedian Jeff Beacher‘s cat (pictured together above with Paris Hilton). Apparently Beacher left his cat with a pal for a few days, and Angel swooped in, snagged the cat and – poof! – refused to give it back. Beacher is pissed off and is threatening to sue to get his whiskered friend home again. A letter to Angel from Beacher’s lawyer outlines the deets:

After both of Mr. Beacher’s parents passed away due to cancer [two years ago], his family’s cat (“Hamlet”) was bequeathed to him by will. At the time, Mr. Beacher was residing at the Hard Rock Hotel [in Las Vegas]. Accordingly, he allowed his friend Jennifer Madden to temporarily care for the cat until he moved out of the hotel. Soon thereafter, while still grieving over the recent loss of his father, my client received a phone call from you stating, ‘I took your cat. He lives with me now’ . . . This action was against the will of Ms. Madden and Mr. Beacher. I also understand that you made further bizarre allegations, including, ‘The cat no longer likes you’ and ‘The cat and I have become close friends.’ “

It seems that at least a year has passed since the great Las Vegas cat-napping, but that’s not stopping Beacher from going after what’s rightfully his. “I was a mess,” he says of the time lil’ Hamlet first went missing. “I’m better now and want my cat back.” [NYPost. Photo: GettyImages]

J-Hud Wears Most Unflattering Pants On Earth

jennifer_hudson_7

Was André Leon Talley behind this? Jennifer Hudson performed on the Today Show this morning wearing what may very well be the world’s most hideous pants. While “harem” pants may be hot on the runway, they have quite the opposite effect on bodies over 100lbs, creating the illusion of a 6-inch camel toe. Once we were able to avert our attention from her crotch, we heard her announce that she and fiancé David Otunga had officially set a date and tell Matt Lauer he’d receive a secret invitation. She then graciously signed autographs for fans and performed “Spotlight.” We recently reported that Hudson may be pregnant, though that hardly justifies this ill-fitting ensemble.

Survivor Star Released From Prison

richard hatch

Survivor season one winner Richard Hatch was moved to a halfway home in Pennsylvania yesterday after three years in federal prison. Hatch, found guilty of failing to report almost $1.5 million dollars in 2006—including his Survivor winnings—was originally sentenced to 51 months in prison and three years of supervised released following the sentence. He is scheduled to leave the halfway home in October.

Hatch appealed the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, without success, arguing that CBS had promised to pay his taxes for him. He continues to maintain his innocence.
