Who left the beautiful Jessica Biel literally out in the cold on Saturday night? Are Will and Kate hoping for a prince or a princess? The answers to these questions–plus which wizard cast a spell over the box office this weekend?–in today’s “While You Were Sleeping”.
What hot Hollywood role did Downton Abbey‘s Mr. Pamuk, aka Theo James, just land? And what’s the Crocodile Hunter‘s daughter doing now? All this, plus some good news for once for Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman fans, in today’s Last Lap.
Did Kate Middleton slip up and reveal that she and Prince William are expecting a baby girl? According to The Daily Mail, a loyal subject in Grimsby gifted Kate yesterday with a teddy bear and the Duchess of Cambridge thanked them by saying, “Oh, this is for our d–” before stopping herself. But did she really mean to say “daughter,” or perhaps was it something else? Read more…
“At the end of the day I probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down,” Prince Harry sighed during a recent interview about his nude Las Vegas photos taken last August. To which we say…do you even know your family, Harry? Maybe things were different when Queen Elizabeth II was a girl, but if the last couple decades have taught us anything, it’s that you could barely be considered a British royal without at least one scandal in your back pocket. So don’t worry, Harry! You’re just joining other infamous royal scandals such as…
While most celeb-obsessed eyes are still nursing real or vicarious Golden Globes-related hangovers, we thought we’d bring you a bit of news from the U.K., namely, that St. James Palace has decided to reveal Kate Middleton’s due date. “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July,” said a statement released to Us Weekly.
This announcement confirms two things for us: 1) She’s not having twins, as some had speculated due to the prevalence of extreme morning sickness among women carrying multiples. And 2) her hospitalization forced the royals to reveal her pregnancy about a month before they ideally would have liked to. If she’s due in July, she was very early into her first month or two of pregnancy when they made the announcement.
But the great news is that Kate is doing much better these days. “The Duchess’s condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month,” the royal statement says. And now we can all begin to buy those baby gifts for the happy couple. We just hope they don’t invite these guys to the shower.

Jessica Simpson confirmed the pregnancy we pretty much all knew about already with a tweet yesterday that read, “Merry Christmas from my family to yours!” accompanying a deadly cute photo of 7-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew in front of the words “Big Sis” written in the sand. It by far surpasses Simpson’s “Mummy” tweet from last Halloween, and also makes us really wish she’d been able to break this news herself, rather than some “friend” who sold the story to Us weeks ago.
UPDATE: Weight Watchers also let Jessica announce her new pregnancy in a 30-second ad, released today. “Being healthy has become a part of who I am, which is great timing, because I’m having another baby,” she says. (WW made sure to add a printed message on the ad that says, “Pregnant women are not eligible to join Weight Watchers. Jessica has stopped following the plan and intends to return after she gives birth.”)
The announcement made us think back to all the other varied ways in which celebrity moms announced their big news to the world in 2012. Here are some of our favorites:
Snooki’s “OMG! I’m Pregnant!” Us Weekly Headline: This is another one we pretty much already knew about before the story was published, but the fact that we could totally hear Snooki’s voice as we read that headline made it more unique than your typical pregnancy story sold to a tabloid.
Amber Rose Follows Beyonce’s Example: Following a couple of weeks of speculation, Amber accompanied Wiz Khalifa to the MTV VMAs this year in a lacy skintight gown and caressed her little bump on the red carpet, leaving no more doubt about their big news. Months later, it looked like Jenna Dewan-Tatum was doing the same red-carpet reveal in her flowy princess gown at VH1 DIVAS, but she and Channing Tatum decided to let us guess for a few more hours before going the typical publicist-to-magazine route.
Every detail that emerges about the death of King Edward VII Hospital nurse Jacintha Saldanha just keeps getting sadder, and unfortunately, the blame game has only escalated over the past week. The nurse, who was working as a receptionist when she patched Queen Elizabeth-impersonating Australian radio hosts through to the nurse treating Kate Middleton, left three notes when she hanged herself last week. According to U.K. tabloid The Mirror, it seems that the 46-year-old mother of two felt persecuted by senior staffers at the hospital.
“One of the letters, which is the longest, deals with the hospital and is critical in its tone,” a source reportedly told the Mirror. “Needless to say, [husband Ben Barboza] wants a full inquiry into what happened, and he wants to make sure the truth comes out. Within the letter Jacintha calls into question some of the treatment she received at the hospital.”
Just when we had imagined Kate Middleton couldn’t feel worse, between the constantly vomiting and the tragic suicide of the nurse pranked by those Australian DJs attempting to contact Middleton, Morrissey steps in to rake her over the coals. Yes, the singer Morrissey. Why? Aw, it’s sweet you still think these things have to have a why. “It wasn’t because of two DJs in Australia that this woman took her own life — it was the pressure around her,” the singer told New Zealand’s 3News, declaring that Kate “feels no shame about the death of this woman. She’s saying nothing about the death of this poor woman. The arrogance of the British royals is absolutely staggering.” Whaaaaaa?
If that wasn’t harsh enough, Moz also accused Kate of having an eating disorder. “Does she have a health condition?” he mused. “Is it anorexia or is it pregnancy? I mean, morning sickness already? So much hoo haw and then suddenly as bright as a button as soon as this poor woman dies she’s out of hospital? It doesn’t ring true.” While we’ll see if we can dig up some more info on the MEDICAL DEGREE Morrissey must have obtained recently, we gather five of the most off-the-wall feuds Moz has gotten into in recent history. It ain’t like this is a new thing.
