Both TMZ and In Touch Weekly are reporting that Nicole Richie is indeed knocked up, preggers, with child – whatever you want to call it. She still looks like she’s eating for none, but hopefully that’ll change soon, as she’s rumored to be three months along. She’s also apparently going to marry her rocker boyfriend/possible baby daddy Joel Madden sometime this summer. Richie may want to hurry it up, cuz that July 11 court date’s not getting any farther away. Maybe they can kill two birds with one stone and tie the knot at the courthouse before her hearing.
If Nicole really is pregs, she’ll probably officially announce it on July 4th, when all us gossip fiends are off barbecuing and setting off fireworks. Remember Jessica and Nick’s Thanksgiving divorce announcement a couple of years ago? Celebs have a way of using the holidays to their advantage. [TMZ/In Touch Weekly]
It’s hard not to love Lily Allen, especially when she’s opening her big mouth. The British pop star, Myspace blogger, and future jailbird rocked the Concert for Diana this weekend, but before she returned to her native land she had this to say to Intelligencer:
"I’m about to be arrested just as soon as I get back to England. I
punched a paparazzi in the face. There were 70 of them
surrounding me. And I left the country
the next day.They’re saying I’m going to be arrested as soon as
back. I could be
Paris Hilton soon enough. Oh, my God, her life is so f***ing insane. She doesn’t even do anything. I can’t
wait until Lindsay Lohan goes to jail. ‘Boo hoo. I’m going to
Good. Does that mean you’ll stop showing me your p**** now?"
Oh Lily, please don’t ever stop telling it like it is. And just so you know, a stint in jail does not mean that Lindsay will stop flashing her lady-thang 24/7. That freckled mess is here to stay. Welcome to America.
Clifford Harris, the man best known heretofore as T.I., has been flapping his gums about his new album T.I. vs. T.I.P. (out Tuesday) for almost a year, but it’s just now that he’s really spelling out the record’s complicated concept. He’s given his most succinct words on the subject to the New York Daily News, and yet, what he’s talking about is still anyone’s guess. Try, just try, to wrap your head around this:
"I think T.I.P. thinks T.I. is a little too concerned with fame and stardom. And T.I. thinks T.I.P. is too concerned with the way we used to live rather than the way we need to live right now. Both of these individuals reside within Clifford Harris. He just pretty much sits back and watches the show."
Which is to say: nonsense! The only difference between T.I. and some homeless schizophrenic man feeding pigeons on a park bench, ranting about the voices in his head is that T.I. is being paid to talk about his crazy. The homeless man gives it for free. After listening to T.I.’s album, it’s clear that the homeless man offers the better bargain. [New York Daily News]
Browse Pics of Rock Stars With Massive (And Multiple) Egos
Hollywood sure is quiet these days. LiLo is attending group therapy, Paris has fled to Hawaii and Nicole is browsing for bridal wear. Who’s left in Hollywood to take their place at the top of the Bad Girl
totem pole? We’ve put together some pics of the potential contenders to take their spots. Sure, some are still young and well behaved now, but as we’ve seen before that means nothing in showbiz. Remember, it was only nine years ago that an 11-year old Lindsay was charming us all in The Parent Trap, and now she’s busy detoxing on the Malibu coast.
Let’s hope for better luck for these Future Bad Girls!

The hip hop starlet plead no contest to her DUI charge this week, which she received in April after crashing her Maserati on Hollywood Boulevard. Her blood alcohol level at the time was twice the legal limit – way past Paris’ .08. Unlike the heiress, Eve will be skipping the slammer and is instead rockin’ a stylish SCRAM ankle bracelet that tests for alcohol vapors released through the skin. It’s the same piece of police bling that Tracey Morgan is currently sporting. Eve will be SCRAM free after 45 days, but is under 36 months probation, must pay $1400 in fines and attend a first offender alcohol education program. With all these stars locked up and off the road, the streets might actually be safe for a few weeks.
Check out this video of Britney Spears giving her mom what are apparently legal papers requesting that Lynne Spears stay away from her grandchildren if she is taking medication that impairs her ability to function appropriately in their presence. Supposedly Brit’s motivation is to keep her mom from seeing her kids at Kevin’s house, where she believes the two conspired to force her into rehab. The showdown took place outside a trailer on the set of Jamie Lynne Spears’ TV show, which just seems to be an oh so fitting spot for this trashy mother-daughter battle. X17 has some great close-up shots of Brit doing the deed in skimpy jean cutoffs and a slinky tank top. In the video, you’ll notice that she picks her wedgie and has to pull her shirt straps up constantly. Real classy! Britney should just hand these papers to herself instead.
Paris Says Aloha To Hawaii
Dressed in a strange black wig, floppy straw hat and a billowy white dress, Paris bolts off the mainland for some much need R&R. [TMZ]
K-Fed Won?t Sign Divorce Papers
Kevin is holding off on signing divorce papers because he’s wary of Britney’s recent odd behavior and post-rehab boozing. Who’d have thought he’d be the responsible one?
Oprah to Open Chicago Store
It’s the one thing Oprah has yet to conquer, but now the richest woman in the world is taking a stab at retail, opening up shop near her studio in Chicago to sell Oprah iPod covers and beach totes, as well as African baskets and art.
The recently engaged Tyrese has announced that his next tour, creepily named the "Shirts Off Tour," will be for ladies only. Apparently the actor/model/singer has told media outlets that he and fellow tour mates Ginuwine and Tank are "putting a ban on all dudes from coming to the show." Hmmm. Does that include yourself, smartypants?
Maybe he doesn’t come out and say it, but one could assume from this ban that Tyrese and friends don’t want their gay male fans to come see them perform. Tyrese has allegedly made homophobic remarks at a concert before, so it appears fishy. It also seems completely ridiculous to ban anyone from a concert, especially when they are fans who are there to support you. So fine, Tyrese, have fun performing for three
ladies with your shirt off. Next time, try getting with the rest of the world. It’s 2007. Enrique Iglesias is serenading dudes at his show! AfterElton is right – take a tip from the Latin crooner and "consider a fan a fan."
If you’re going to deny that you’re gay, you might want to do a little bit better of a job keeping tidbits like this from the NY Daily News out of the gossip rags:
"Clay Aiken and a bevy of male chorus dancers partied into the wee hours at Cain nightclub over the weekend. The group was celebrating the forthcoming Off-Broadway show, "Idol:
The Musical" which is all about Clay and his "Claymates," the fans who
love him. The guaranteed-to-be-a-classic show begins previews July 5. Spies say the group ordered multiple bottles of Snow Queen vodka and poured into cabs together after a long night."
A bevy of male dancers? Snow Queen vodka? At least show up with a couple of lady groupies and guzzle some beer, Clay. Otherwise your Claymates are gonna freak, and we know that’s never pretty.
