After months of “Is she or isn’t she carrying a child in that skeletal frame of hers?” stylist Rachel Zoe has confirmed that she is pregnant. Via Twitter, of course, as that is the only way anyone communicates anything anymore. She wrote earlier today “Hey everyone! I want to officially confirm to my loyal friends and followers that I am pregnant!…I feel great, Rodger and I are beyond excited and so thankful for all of your love and support. xoRZ & RB.” The photo above was taken earlier this week and it does appear that Zoe looks more healthy and glowy than her usual concave self, so that’s good to see.
This comes after a denial last month when asked point-blank if she was expecting, but it seems she was just being cautious. Or maybe she was just trying to prolong the tension since baby-making was such a big part of this season’s Rachel Zoe Project. Who knows? All we know is that Rachel can now eat for two which means she’ll finally start eating for one. Congratulations!
Rihanna frenzy inÃ‚Â Times Square reached crazy heights yesterday. The singer performed live at MTV’s “The Seven” to promote her new album Loud. Her outfit didn’t disappoint, with canary yellow piped hot pants and a kitschy printed jacket. But it was her hair that made all the difference. Still red, but ironed out into a long sleek ‘do. Take away the mad clothes and you have one seriously elegant Rihanna.
The singer belted out “What’s My Name” from the album while the crowd went bananas, and post the number exclaimed, “Thank you, New York! It’s amazing! It’s a lot of people. I’m really excited. I’m looking forward to sharing it with the world. I want everybody to getÃ‚Â Loud tomorrow.” Who’s really going to get loud tomorrow are the Biliebers. Their idol, Justin Bieber had dinner with Rihanna post the show and was out to impress.Ã‚Â Rihanna tweeted, “Justin Bieber just flashed me his abs in the middle of a restaurant! Wow! He actually had a lil 6 pack! Sexy,lol!” The Biebs responded to her with a photo and a sweet little tweet of his own,”never that. Its always love .”
Oh to be in Rih’s boots for one day (or night). Check out photos of Rihanna’s gig and her dinner with Justin in the gallery below. [Photos:Twitpic/]
Congratulations New-Dad Ne-Yo! The singer just had a baby girl, Madilyn Grace, with his girlfriendÃ‚Â Monyetta Shaw on Friday. He could barely control his excitement over Twitter, writing, “Much luv to my twit fam and everybody showin’ luv to my new addition!! She’s healthy and happy. Feels like I’m in luv for the first time.”Ã‚Â Little Madilyn Grace made quite an entrance too, turning up six weeks before she was expected.Ã‚Â Monyetta went into labor while Ne-Yo was at a charity event for his foundation, and he had to book it to the hospital. Baby, Mom and Dad are all fine
The following day, Ne-Yo also tweeted, “Welcoming that lil’ girl to the world last night defined for me what “willing to kill and die for” truly means. My world, my life,all hers.” Awwww. From Sexy Love straight to Baby Love.
Lily Allen lost her baby after being pregnant for six months and she’s still in hospital receiving medical care. Lily’s suffering fromÃ‚Â septicemia but managed to tweet a grateful message saying, “Thank you for all your kind messages.”
Her sudden bout of ill-health came right after losing the baby, and she had to be taken to hospital, again, from her home inÃ‚Â Gloucestershire where she had been recuperating. Septicemia is pretty serious because the patient’s blood is poisoned, but her spokesperson spoke of her recovery stating, “Lily Allen is back in hospital, where she is being treated for septicaemia. She is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve.Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers.’
We wish her the very best and hope she’s back on her feet soon.
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian aren’t engaged and are hopping mad with E! for saying so. Those two have been popping up in the news all week, and we last reported on the LeAnn-Eddie engagement too. We also reported about the Shape magazine-party controversy, which FYI, eventually, LeAnn didn’t turn up for! And she even tweeted the invite; what a shame.
As always, there are two sides of the story. E! is standing by theirs. A source reckons that LeAnn and Eddie went ballistic because E! stymied them out of an exclusive. You know, pimping out the pictures and the wedding which would have translated into a mega payload for the couple.
LeAnn, on the other hand, wants the world to know just how mad she is because there’s apparently, no ring in question. She went on a long Twitter vent and didn’t mince her words at all with , “Ok, I’ve about had it with the lack of “reporting” with E News. The fact that our “engagement” has spread so furiously over the past 24 hours off of an E News article that is 150% untrue just shows you the lack of credible “sources” they seem to find and build a story around…”
Stop. Pause for breath (us, not her, clearly). There’s a whole lot more, but we’ll leave it to you to read. She ended with a flourish saying, “… Eddie and I felt we couldn’t let this rumor go on any longer.”
And there’s bad news all around for LeAnn, because this all coincided with the Shape party. The story is that she was sick and couldn’t attend and has been tweeting illness-alerts regularly. One tweet also tried to tone down the Shape magazine beef with, “Headed to the dr in a bit. This flu thing is hard to shake. Just to clarify, I was never supposed to sing at the Shape party and yes, under dr’s orders I couldn’t go. I spoke to Valerie yesterday I don’t know how many times and all is well w/ absolutely NO controversy. There is LOVE all around from Shape to me and Me to Shape.” Seriously, all that pent-up hell-hath-no-fury made our hair frizz, so tweet all you want.
Zen, LeAnn. All that anger’s messing up your juju!
50 Cent is still on Twitter, and today he’s showing off a fraction of the money he’s made rapping, acting, and selling that sweet, sweet Vitamin Water. Fiddy posted this picture of himself with his one true love – cash - capped off with this tweet: “Who said I don’t have a heart. Lol”
Yeah, sure, LOL. We’re LOLing right into our Ramen Noodles – the only thing we could afford to bring for lunch today. Keep rubbing it in 50 – it’s working. We’re jealous. Congrats.

Here’s a sentence we’d never thought we’d say: Demi Lovato is in rehab. Hold up… it’s not for drugs. The official statement reads, “Demi Lovato left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatmentÃ‚Â for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time. Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that.” According to People Magazine’s sources, Demi’s dealing with an eating disorder and cutting.
Things started getting a little strange over the weekend, when Demi vanished off Twitter (she even became a trending topic as a result of her departure). And now she’s dropped out of an international concert tour with the Jonas Brothers as well. Apparently, Demi’s fight with a female member of the tour is what eventually made her take the decision to admit herself. Props to her for dealing with her problems; we hope she gets the help she needs.
What’s this whole “I’m-sorry-I’m really not sorry-Screw your sorry” biz going down?Ã‚Â Shape magazine ed-in-in-chief Valerie Latona, first apologizes for having LeAnn Rimes on the cover of her publication. The story dealt with her and Eddie Cibrian, bringing up all sorts of unpleasant cheating-marriage breaking up associations because a still married Rimes hooked up with a still married Cibrian. Those two aren’t exactly Mr. and Mrs America right now and the pieceÃ‚Â had peeps getting out their pitchforks and screaming, “Adulterer!”Latona’s apologetic statement read,”Please know that our putting her on the cover was not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal-but to show (through her story) how we all are human. And this woman in particular found strength in exercise in what she said was her most difficult personal moment.”
Then Latona does this semi-retraction on her apology writing, “The fact is a mere 40 readers out of almost 6 million readers wrote in to complain calling LeAnn a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœhusband stealerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœterrible mistake for Shape.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ I wrote to those women apologizing that our cover choice did not make them happy Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as I have done for other cover stars in the past.”Ã‚Â Then she blogs a note called Setting the Record Straight on LeAnn Rimes where interestingly enough, the tags on the post are “backpedaling” and “cowardly”.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Whatevs. Pick a side and stick with it, make your stand blah blah blah.Ã‚Â It’s Monday and we’re grumpy so all this waffling doesn’t cut it.
Because now LeAnn Rimes sees your non-apology and raises the stakes pretty much shoving you out of the game. How? By making the Shape crew look like hypocrites. In her defense, LeAnn tweeted, “wow, that’s really funny since they’re are throwing me a party in LA next week to celebrate this being the 3rd time I’ve been on their cover.” Ouch. Then to drill home the point, LeAnn tweeted the invite. Mission Accomplished. Unless they’ve canned the party… which we’re guessing they have not. Let’s all carry on with our day now.
A wee fan proposed to Demi Lovato after her concert in Colombia. The dude pulled out all the stops and popped out a ring while on bended knee. Of course, his private moment ain’t exactly private anymore. Demi tweeted a picture of the occasion typing, “You guys…. I’m engaged!!!!!!!!”
In case peeps didn’t get it, Demi set the record straight in her next message, tweeting, “And no I’m not really engaged to my fan! That was just a joke!!!” Such a good girl, Demi. Making sure too many hearts didn’t get broken across the globe.
We admit the idea of besties Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift planning a wedding would’ve been fun, although, admittedly a lot more wholesome than Katy Perry and Rihanna‘s pre-wedding bash. Disney stars gone wild! Erm, we don’t think so. Britney Spears, they are not.
