Before we kick off The Gossip Table, the team wants to quickly remember James Gandolfini, who died of a heart attack in Italy at the age of 51. “We lost a giant today. I am utterly heartbroken,” says Lorraine Bracco, Gandolfini’s co-star on The Sopranos. The actor will be greatly missed by all of those who knew him and his fans.
Are wedding bells in Kimye‘s future? Rob Shuter reports that the Kardashian family is pressuring Kanye West to get married to Kim. They feel now that she’s given birth, he needs to put a ring on it. Additionally, Noah Levy tells us that the Khloe, Kourtney and Scott Disick are concerned about the rapper going on tour. Due to promotional obligations for the release of his new album, Yeezus, Kanye might not be around much during the first few months of the newborn’s life.
Who is chaperoning 98 Degrees while the group goes on tour? Delaina Dixon has the dish.
Did Liam Hemsworth’s brothers try to end his engagement to Miley Cyrus? Who’s rumored to be Robert Pattinson’s new snuggle bunny? And what’s Baz Luhrmann saying about Jay-Z’s score for The Great Gatsby?
Taylor Swift is holding hands with Harry Styles of One Direction, Lindsay Lohan is partying down and stealing the sweatshirt of Max George from The Wanted. Boy bands are back in a big way, and they’re stealing some of the brightest lights in tinsel town! But then again, who could blame them with their cool hair and cool clothes and…other cool guys with cool hair and cool clothes around them. Gah, sometimes is really does pay to travel in groups!
Tay and Lilo are definitely not the first famous ladies who have been swayed by the charms of a boy-bander. And chances are high that they won’t be the last either! Sure, everyone knows about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, but remember that time he hooked up with Jenna Dewan? They obviously didn’t last, but we guess she made out ok in the end by marrying Channing Tatum and all. Before her punch-filled love triangle, Halle Berry stepped out with New Kid on the Block Danny Wood. Joe Jonas can count Camilla Belle and Taylor Swift among his suitors, whereas Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus preferred his brother Nick. Head down to the gallery below to see the boy-band hookups that you totally forgot about!

Isn’t this the most awesome way to start a morning? Call us suckers for baby pictures, because we totally and unabashedly are. Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey had their baby boy a little over two weeks ago and their statement, given right after his birth, read, ”We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Camden John Lachey. Born today at 6:54 p.m., he came into this world at 8 lbs., 9 oz. and 21 inches. Love has truly been redefined for both of us.” So happy for the couple, but our first thought was — pictures, please? Ever since Vanessa showed off her baby bump on Twitter, we’ve been hankering to see some more shots, and now the wait is over. Vanessa tweeted this awesome snap of their newborn with a message that read, “NickSLachey and I are honored and humbled to introduce you to the new Love of our lives, Camden John Lachey.” This is the first picture the world has seen of little Camden, and it’s a super one. Look at that full head of hair! Now we’re going to feel all gooey for the rest of the day now, so, good on you guys.

Vanessa Minnillo Is Seriously Baby-Bumpin’!
These two have been off the radar for some time now, have they not? But this picture tweeted by Vanessa Minnillo, with her husband, Nick Lachey is just too cute too ignore. “My Happiness… My Family! Ahhh, My Boys! (Wookie included) …” was the message. ‘Nessa’s baby bump rivals Jessica Simpson‘s — before she popped. J.Simp being Lachey’s ex, that is. But let’s not get into that, but instead get into how gorgeous Vanessa’s looking. She’s glowing and it shows, especially with that teeny bandeau top she’s in. Also, does that tweet mean she’s having a boy? “Ahhh, My Boys,” includes Nick, but also includes her yet-be-born son, which was confirmed by the couple as they revealed the gender last month saying they were thrilled at the news. Vanessa announced she was preggers in March, FYI, and she’s due sometime in September. That’s two months away. We can’t imagine her belly getting even bigger because it’s already so huge. We wish the couple love and luck for the last two months of their journey and can’t wait to meet their special little man. Wonder if they’ve already got a name picked out and ready?

Nick and Drew Lachey called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning to announce that 98 Degrees would be reuniting this summer … for just one show, on August 18 at the Summer Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Disappointed that it’s just for one show? Or, um, disappointed that this is 98 Degrees reuniting and not ‘NSYNC. Aw, these guys can’t catch a break, even more than a decade after they formed in the shadow of those other beloved boy bands. But then again, maybe it’s time to give the Lachey brothers, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons another chance at your teen-girl screams. After all, they probably aren’t content to rest on their laurels, so they’ll be trying harder. And that Nick has aged quite nicely, wouldn’t you say? You keep making those movies, Justin Timberlake. Continue your mindmeld with the New Kids, Backstreet Boys, we’d like to celebrate the very hotness of the “Thank God I Found You” singers.

While Jessica Simpson appears to be in her 20th month of pregnancy, her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, has caught up to her in the baby-making race: He announced while guest-hosting Live With Kelly this morning that wife Vanessa Minnillo is pregnant with their first child.
“She started to feel a little different, not herself so she went to the store, got a pregnancy test, and it came back positive. So we are having a baby!” Nick said of Vanessa, whom he married last July. “I’ve had a chance to do a lot of great things in my career and my life but this is the one thing that, more than any other, I look forward to. The fact that it’s actually here, it’s overwhelming.”
According to Us Weekly, 30-year-old Minnillo, the host of Wipeout these days, is 12 weeks along. Some pics taken of her last weekend in Mexico appear to show her with a tiny baby bump — or as we like to call it, a normal-person’s stomach. We wonder if Baby Lachey and Simpson’s Baby Johnson will one day be friends?

Happy Valentine’s Day! Or not, depending on how you feel about the holiday. And listen, we know there are a lot of singletons out there who are not so pleased about how much we in the media focus on this holiday. But we can’t help it, OK? We cover divorces and breakdowns and deaths and fights all the time, and it’s really nice to have a day that’s all about the important things in life. (No, not the unveiling of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, though that’s nice too.) We just really want to escape from it all and look at Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez nuzzling each other. We would like to soak in the happiness that is Adam Lambert and Sauli Koskinen’s love, bask in Jay-Z and Beyonce’s adorable glory, shiver with delight at the perpetual hotness of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and marvel at the lasting power of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. We are hoping some of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s world-saving affection will rub off on us. And we’re even going to allow for some admiration of Tom Brady and Gisele Bunchen, football loyalties aside.
But here’s some good news for you black-hearted V-day haters: The last time we did a best couples gallery, back in December, one of those couples announced their divorce a few days later. Oh, no! What have we done?!?

We have so much material for you that your Halloween costumes should be sorted out for the next couple of years. There are so many options to check out. You could take inspiration from our very own FABlifersÂ or you could take a look at our gallery of celebrity Halloween twitpics. Perhaps the early bird stars who played dress-up over the weekend will float your boat? Don’t see anything you like? Then skedaddle over toÂ Best Week Everâ€™s rundown of the onlyÂ 13 celeb Halloween costumes that matter, orÂ VH1 Blogâ€™sÂ ultimate gallery of VH1 starsâ€™ costumes. Our halos are polished to a high shine.
And we’re not done yet. Since yesterday was the last day for trick-or-treating and Halloween costumes, celebrities really outdid themselves. The final few we loved were folks like Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford who cracked us up by getting their ’80s on as members of Mötley Crüe. Eden Wood from Toddlers and Tiaras was big this year with Chrissy Teigen and Fergie dressing up as her. Kelly Ripa outdid herself on Live! With Regis and Kelly along with Nick Lachey. Their first outfit sequence had Kelly dressed up as Eden as well, and Nick as Charlie Sheen. Their second has Kelly as Kim Kardashian and Nick (on stilts) as Kris Humphries on their wedding day. Ouch! The sexiest prize goes to Miranda Kerr who was the hottest ringmaster ever, and we’d like to give a round of applause to the mommies-to-be as well. Beyoncé was the cutest bumblebee in town, while Jennifer Garner was a witch.
Check out the gallery for the final top 10 celebrity Halloween costumes. We hope you had a FAB weekend.

Poor Jessica Simpson! Her Malti-Poo pooch, Daisy, was snatched by coyotes yesterday (Simpson Twittered “A coyote took my precious Daisy right in front of our eyes. HORROR! We are searching. Hoping. Please help!”) and she has been distraught and searching for the 5-year-old dog ever since.
Simpson rarely travels without the dog, who was a gift from ex-hubby Nick Lachey. She has been busy posting signs all over her Calabasas, CA neighborhood, hoping that someone will have found the dog alive – we’re really hoping this ends happily for Jess and she’s reunited with Miss Daisy.
