Theatre lovers, rejoice! Emma Stone will make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in Cabaret at Studio 54 in New York City tonight. (Yes, the same theater where Shia LaBeouf got arrested earlier this year.) In an interview with Vanity Fair, Stone said she “can’t believe this is actually happening.” We can; Stone is one of many A-list movie stars to take their acting talents to the Great White Way. However, how will she fair?

Did “Shadow” just get you? Are you an emotional brunette trapped in a bubbly blonde’s body? Did Ryan Cabrera‘s frosted tips make you weak in the knees? If you answered “yes” to any of these, then you probably miss The Ashlee Simpson Show more than we do.
After playing coy for a few weeks, Jessica Simpson is now flaunting her baby bump on Twitter! “Bumpin’ and Proud!” she captioned the twitpic showing her very pregnant self in the bathroom mirror. She made the big announcement over Twitter on Christmas Day that she’s expecting her second child. She announced that she was pregnant with daughter Maxwell Drew on Halloween, so maybe she just has a theme for themed pregnancies.
Her sister Ashlee is having a much more low-key new years, having a bikini vacation in Hawaii this weekend. She was joined by her son Bronx and her mother Tina on the trip. Ashlee just recently split with her long time boyfriend Vincent Piazza. We guess she’s taking a page from the Rihanna playbook and healing her heartbreak with some fun in the sun. Get a closer look in the gallery below!

Only Tom Hanks could drop a filthy f-bomb on Good Morning America and have us find him more endearing. Maybe it’s that mustache? It’s very sweet in a dad way, very Mr. Belvedere on a long weekend. Maybe it’s because we know Hanks was trying to get into character to demonstrate his Cloud Atlas accent for host Elizabeth Vargas? “I want people to buy my f—ing…” Hanks growls. No, it’s because T. Hanks claps his hand over his mouth and bugs his eyes like a scandalized seven-year-old when he realizes his blunder. Don’t worry, Tom! We’ve heard (and seen) worse on-air celebrity gaffes. 10 of them, to be precise!
While chatting it up about life and rocking an absolutely adorbs ensemble at the Rock & Republic for Kohl’s Show at New York Fashion Week, Ashlee Simpson squealed her excitement about becoming an auntie. “I can’t wait for that!” she exclaimed. Ash admits to being a great sister to mom-to-be Jessica Simpson all throughout her pregnancy.
Even though Jessica may be older, lil sis Ashlee definitely has one up on her when it comes to motherhood. She gave birth to her son Bronx Mowgli back in 2008. We know she’s been offering Jess the love and support she needs, including lots of low key hang out seshes as the due date grows ever closer. Check out the video below to see Ashlee’s enthusiasm yourself. Who’s ready for Auntie Ashlee? We sure are!
If hearing Ashlee gush over her big sis isn’t enough, here’s 10 pics of Jessica looking absolutely pretty in pregnancy!

Classic black never goes out of style. There may have been a fair amount of neutrals and grays and bold colors on the 2012 Sag Awards red carpet last night, but black actually outnumbered them all. None of the gowns veered towards goth territory, either, as all the styles went the romantic or slightly edgy route.
We saw drapes on the likes of Melissa McCarthy’s Badgley Mischka, Archie Panjabi’s one-shouldered Carolina Herrera and Angelina Jolie’s Jenny Packham halter-necked gown. The latter was a little too safe for our liking. Wearing the same designer was Ashlee Simpson, whose dress was similar to the number Vanessa Hudgens wore to the People’s Choice Awards. No contest here: Ashlee wore the better version.
Amber Heard killed it in a Zac Posen cut-out dress and guess who wore the same designer? Glenn Close! She rocked that gown and her compatriot Jessica Lange did the same in a slinky sequined David Meister number. Both the ladies are still so sexy in their 60s! Joining the sequin brigade was Jayma Mays‘ beautiful Reem Acra gown with a dramatic demi-train. We saw a lot of lace overlay as well, whether it was in Amber Riley’s Badgley Mischka, Stacy Keibler’s Marchesa or Emma Stone’s custom Alexander McQueen. We’d also like to hand out top marks to our favourite 30 Rock ladies for bringing on the fabulous. Tina Fey looked very sexy in her vintage Versace gown as did Jane Krakowski in Antonio Berardi. Everyone did really good here, and black was anything but boring. The only celebrity we wish had upped the stakes was Glee’s Heather Morris. Her half-sheer Masai Payan dress just didn’t work.

Big sis is already some sort of a fashion mogul, so it’s natural that the younger sibling would jump on board. Jessica and Ashlee Simpson are co-designing a fashion line of tween clothing which will be part of the Jessica Simpson Collection. Run, young ‘uns, RUN AWAY! We kid. Kinda. Between Jessica’s really whack wardrobe and Ashlee’s hipper-than-thou style we’re imagining a group of 9-14 year olds walking around with bleach blond hair, raccoon eyes and clothes that jut out at really weird angles and are two sizes too small. But, we’re sure (read: hoping) that’s not going to happen. Right? Someone reassure us quickly, please?
Jess is pretty confident that that they’re going to create some groundbreaking tween couture, though. She said, “Creating a tween apparel collection was a natural extension for the brand. I’m excited to bring my sister, Ashlee, along as co-creative director of this division, because she brings a savvy rocker edge that defines today’s tweens.” The collection will launch this fall and Ashlee’s on a mission to rock the pre-teen world as well saying, “My goal as co-creative director will be to design clothes that will help inspire young girls to express their personalities and creativity through fashion.” Moms, you have been warned.

These photos of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz with their little son Bronx Mowgli made us really sad. They looked so happy out in the sunshine at a farmers market in California yesterday, that it just seems like such a waste that these two split up. Ashlee and Pete feel like this perfectly matched hipster couple! But as sad as their impending divorce may be, we think it’s really awesome that they’re still coming together peacefully to parent their son. Bronx looks ecstatic to be riding on a toy train with his mom! Keep all the drama away from the kid, is what we say.

TMZ got their hands on Pete Wentz’s response ot Ashlee Simpson’s divorce petition, and it looks like their “irreconcilable differences” extend to the details of the split. Here are a few of their legal disagreements.
- Ashlee wants spousal support, Pete would rather not give it (hey, her albums sold about as well as Fall Out Boy’s—and their royalties go four ways!).
- Ashlee wants Pete to pay her legal fees, he’d rather not.
- While willing to split legal custody of 2-year-old Bronx Mowgli, Ashlee wants primary physical custody. Pete wants to split that as well.
The pair also have yet to decide what they’re doing with the assets acquired during their brief marriage, but obviously the matter of Bronx—and future income—will be the bigger hurdle. Check out the gallery below to see photos of Pete taking Bronx out in LA yesterday.

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz‘s divorce statement remains the only thing either star has said about their split, but plenty of people are willing to talk for them. The general gossip consensus seems to be that, while Ashlee wants to move on with her life, Pete is still trying to patch things up. “Pete is in denial that the marriage is over,” a source told Radar. “He seems to think that if he turns on the charm he can sweet talk Ashlee into changing her mind and giving it another go.” The same source claims Ashlee was none too happy about Pete starting a new band, Black Cards, after Fall Out Boy went on hiatus. “That’s not the life Ashlee wants for her and Bronx—waiting at home for ‘daddy’ to come home. They’ve basically hit a stalemate and neither side is willing to budge.”
Whether or not he’s willing to budge, mulitple sites say Pete is certainly willing to cry. “Pete has been crying a lot to her about this,” says Radar‘s tattler, with TMZ claiming Pete was teary-eyed as recent as yesterday. “He is crushed, and does not want it to be over.” Maybe he’s confused that Radar says she’s “happier without him” but would possibly consider taking him back if he’d quit touring? Logic like that would make us cry, too.
