Jessica Simpson shows off 'baby bump'

Posted by Emily Wright December 30, 2012 08:53 PM

Less than a week after Jessica Simpson tweeted a photo of her daughter and the words "Big sis," alluding to a second pregnancy, she posted another photo to her social media account, this time giving followers a glimpse of what looks like a growing belly.

The 32-year-old's photo was a mirror shot (a.k.a. a selfie), showing off a bikini and matching cover-up, with the words, "Bumpin' and proud!" in the text field. Simpson, her fiance Eric Johnson, and their daughter Maxwell Drew, were on vacation in Hawaii this week, according to her Twitter account.

Rumors began circulating that Simpson and Johnson would soon be welcoming a new addition to their growing family when an exclusive source talked to Us Weekly in November, and revealed the then yet-to-be-confirmed baby news. Simpson has not commented on the baby news outside of her tweets.

Simpson gave birth to Maxwell, her first child, in May, 2012.

Kate Winslet marries for third time, given away by DiCaprio

Posted by Emily Wright December 27, 2012 09:11 AM

Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet married Ned Rock'nRoll in a private New York ceremony at the beginning of the month, according to her rep.

The ceremony was so private that the "Revolutionary Road" star's parents weren't even in attendance. Rather than being given away by her father, Winslet was presented to her hubby by "Titanic" costar Leonardo DiCaprio in front of a small group, which included her two children from her previous marriages.

Winslet was first spotted with Rock'nRoll at his uncle Sir Richard Branson's vacation home last fall. The pair confirmed their relationship when they arrived at the Golden Globes together on Jan. 15.

The actress was previously married to "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes (from 2003 to 2010) and British director Jim Threapleton (from 1998 to 2001). Rock'NRoll was previously married to British heiress Eliza Pearson, who was rumored to be dating 30 Seconds to Mars rocker Jared Leto earlier this year.

Jessica Simpson confirms second pregnancy via Twitter

Posted by Emily Wright December 26, 2012 08:43 AM

For the first time since Us Weekly published a report a month ago that Jessica Simpson was expecting a baby for the second time, the singer and fashion maven has commented (sort of) on the rumored pregnancy.

Simpson posted a Christmas tweet with a picture of her daughter Maxwell Drew seated above the words "big sis" written in the sand.

This somewhat cryptic post appears to confirm the Us Weekly story that baby No. 2 is on the way. Simpson, who gave birth to daughter Maxwell Drew in May, could be in for another spring delivery.

Simpson is currently a spokesperson for Weight Watchers and recently revealed a 60-pound weight loss.

'Entertainment Tonight' names celebrity winners and losers of 2012

Posted by Kristi Palma December 24, 2012 08:16 AM

Madonna, Martha Stewart, and Lindsay Lohan are among "Entertainment Tonight"'s biggest losers of 2012. And we're not talking about weight loss.

The TV show compiled a list of Hollywood's winners and losers from the past year, based on things they've said, done, and the money they've earned (or lost!).

Madonna is being called a Grinch for refusing to sing during an outdoor concert in Chile because of a smoker in the crowd. Stewart's company has reported a nearly $51 million quarterly loss and is about to lay off 12 percent of its workforce, and Lohan reportedly owes back taxes and is facing a battery charge in New York and a possible probation violation in Los Angeles.

Now for some of the winners! Britney Spears made $58 million thanks to her new album "Femme Fatale" and her decision to be a judge on "The X Factor." Boy band One Direction won big with two No. 1 albums in eight months. And actress Jennifer Lawrence shot to fame because of her performance in "The Hunger Games." "Magic Mike" star Channing Tatum rose to winner status after he was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. (Photo: AFP Photo/Valerie Macon/Getty Images)

"E.T." also awarded the Hollywood A-listers who banded together for a pubic service announcement about gun violence to the winners' circle. You can watch part of that announcement in the video above.

Here is some of what we've learned.

How she felt standing on stage Wednesday night: "I was exhausted!"

Her sugary weakness: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

"I want to go home and sleep and eat a lot of food with my grandparents," said Gomez.

'Boy Meets World' star Fishel graduates college at 31

Posted by Emily Wright December 20, 2012 10:19 AM

Danielle Fishel, who may be better known as Topanga from the hit '90s sitcom "Boy Meets World," announced that she finished college this week via her Tumblr page.

"I went back to school 4 years ago at 27 years old," Fishel wrote. "I had attempted to go a couple times before then, even going so far as to take my placement exams and sign up for classes, but I could never follow through and actually go. I was too afraid of being the old lady in class, of being whispered about, and especially of not remembering how to do simple math equations."

She later added that, she is "a very fortunate person," but "graduating from college is easily among my proudest achievements in life."

2012 turned out to be a year of announcements for the actress, who recently confirmed that she will be returning to the small screen to reprise her role as the quirky wife of Cory Matthews, played by Ben Savage, in "Girl Meets World." The upcoming reboot will chronicle the life of the couple's teenage daughter, Riley.

Actor Morgan Freeman at the 35th Kennedy Center Honors earlier this month, at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Plenty of celebrities vented their sadness and frustration this past weekend about the heartbreaking massacre that took place Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut by writing comments for fans to read.

But actor Morgan Freeman wasn't one of them.

Someone released a lengthy quote blaming the media for the shooting and attributed it to Freeman. Read the entire quote, courtesy of E! News.

However, Freeman's rep told this to E! News: "Morgan neither made statements or posted those statements. We are trying to find out who did, but they did not originate from him."

Here is a sampling of what stars did say, via Twitter, in response to the shooting.

Who are the most fascinating people of 2012?

Barbara Walters announced her Top 10 list last night during her annual ABC special, highlighting the most fascinating people of the year.

Boston's Academy-Award winning actor/director/writer Ben Affleck made the list. This was a big year for Affleck, who directed, produced, and starred in "Argo," which was also nominated for a Golden Globe this morning. Others included pint-sized reality TV star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, Olympian Gabby Douglas, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, "Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James, British boy band One Direction, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, actor Seth MacFarlane, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Wondering who's the most fascinating of all?

Anne Hathaway talks wardrobe malfunction, 'Les Misérables' premiere

Photographers got more than they were bargaining for Monday night as Anne Hathaway exited the car at the premiere of her latest film, "Les Misérables." The actress had no underwear on and photographers captured the moment when she mistakenly bared it all.

Hathaway sat down with "Today" show host Matt Lauer this morning and answered questions about the unfortunate incident.

"It kind of made me sad on two accounts," Hathaway said during the interview. "One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it."

Of course, Hathaway isn't the first star to be exposed as she exited the car. Other celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and even the Duchess of Cambridge have been the victims of wrong place/wrong time wardrobe malfunction scenarios.

Hathaway continued, "And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which brings us back to 'Les Mis,' that's what my character is, she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there's no social safety net."

Hathaway plays Fantine in the movie alongside co-stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfreid, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Helena Bonham Carter. The film opens on Christmas Day.

On a lighter note, Hathaway stopped by "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" to sing Mad Libs Christmas carols on Tuesday night's show.

Do you think Hathaway handled the questions from Lauer well? What do you think of the photographers who sold the photos? Let us know in the comments.

Charlie Sheen says Lindsay Lohan never thanked him for money he gave her

Posted by Kristi Palma December 11, 2012 07:34 AM

Charlie Sheen is telling "Entertainment Tonight" that he gave Lindsay Lohan money and never received a thank you.

The two worked together on "Scary Movie 5," scheduled for release in April, 2013. Sheen did not specify the amount he gave Lohan, but an ABC report says the amount could be as high as $100,000.

"She got shorted and I found out so I said, 'Here,'" said Sheen. "I'm still waiting for a text to say thank you, anything."

TMZ and the New York Daily News reported that Lohan's bank accounts were recently seized by the IRS because she owes taxes. The report also says Lohan used Sheen's money to help pay for those taxes.

A few weeks ago Lohan was charged with assault and lying to the cops and assault.

Sheen, who is also notorious for making headlines for reasons other than his acting, told ET he had the following advice for the troubled starlet: "To lead with humor."

Do you think Lohan will thank Sheen for the money?

Prince William talks about his wife's pregnancy sickness

The royal couple posed for engagement photos in 2010.

Dad-to-be Prince William made his first public appearance since his wife Kate Middleton was released from the hospital after a four-day stay because of hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe morning sickness. And he's talking about how his wife's sickness is not limited to the morning.

He attended the Winter Whites Gala in London on Saturday. It was there that he told Michael O'Higgins, former chairman of homeless charity Centrepoint (which the gala benefited), "They shouldn't call it morning sickness, as it's a day and all-night sickness, reports People.com.

Middleton was feeling so sick yesterday that Prince William canceled his appearance at the British Military Tournament to be by her side, reports E! News.

But don't expect regular updates from the palace about her condition. That's because a spokesperson for the royal couple issued this statement to People.com: "It is well known that hyperemesis gravidarum often recurs and, until further notice, to allow the Duchess a degree of privacy during her pregnancy, we do not intend to offer regular condition checks or advise of routine developments associated with it."

Report: Lohan arrives in Boston with The Wanted

Posted by Emily Wright December 7, 2012 01:01 PM


Lindsay Lohan's recent run-in with the law and reported tax evasion issues haven't kept her from getting out and about.

The 26-year-old actress was spotted in Boston at the Kiss 108 Jingle Ball concert last night. The "Liz & Dick" star doesn't frequent the Hub, so why did she pick the TD Garden for a Thursday night outing? According to NECN, LiLo arrived in Boston aboard The Wanted's tour bus, which she reportedly boarded after leaving the Philadelphia Jingle Ball.

This news comes hours after Kiss 108 morning show host Matt Siegel interviewed The Wanted member, Max George. Siegel chatted the pop star up about the group's show on Wednesday night in Philly where Lohan was spotted, and then asked George if there was anything going on between the two young celebs.

"What the hell is going on with you and Lindsay Lohan," Seigel asked during the interview.

President Obama lights National Christmas Tree

Posted by Kristi Palma December 7, 2012 08:39 AM

The lighting of the National Christmas Tree is a 90-year-old tradition. And last night President Barack Obama lit the tree along with his wife Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia, and mother-in-law Marian Robinson. Oh, and a crowd of more than 17,000 people and lots of celebrities.

It all took place on the Ellipse, a park between the White House and the National Mall. Neil Patrick Harris, of "How I Met Your Mother," hosted the event. The 28-foot blue spruce was transplanted right before Hurricane Sandy and made it through the storm unharmed.

The festive ceremony included performances by celebrities, such as Jason Mraz, James Taylor, and The Fray. Michelle Obama read "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" with "Modern Family" star Rico Rodriguez.

"It's beautiful," said Obama about the tree. "Merry Christmas, everybody."

3. Reese Witherspoon. Last year's "How Do You Know" earned only $50 million on an estimated budget of $120 million.
4. Sandra Bullock. Her movie "All About Steve" flopped at the box office.
5. Jack Black. Black's movie "The Big Year" earned only $7 million on a budget of $40 million.
6. Nicolas Cage. Last year's "Drive Angry" grossed only $29 million worldwide.
7. Adam Sandler. "Jack and Jill" disappointed at the box office.
8. Denzel Washington. According to Forbes, Washington's films do fine at the box office, but the actor "commands an outsized paycheck."
9. Ben Stiller. Stiller earns so much that even though last year's "Tower Heist" earned $153 million, it didn't make much of a profit.
10. Sarah Jessica Parker. Last year's film "I Don't Know How She Does It" cost $25 million to make and barely earned $30 million.

Do you think these actors are overpaid?

'Malcolm in the Middle' star Frankie Muniz suffers mini stroke

Posted by Emily Wright December 5, 2012 10:00 AM

Frankie Muniz has a lot to be thankful for today on his 27th birthday. The "Malcolm in the Middle" star announced on Twitter Dec. 4 that he was in the hospital last Friday and that he suffered a mini stroke. He added that he needs "to start taking care of his body."

Muniz gave an exclusive interview to "Good Morning America" today to discuss the incident.

"Something wasn't right, I know I did not feel right," Muniz said on the show. "I couldn't say words. I thought I was saying them. And my fiance was looking at me like I was speaking a foreign language."

Muniz was reportedly riding his motorcycle in Phoenix when he realized that something was wrong, losing sight in one eye and feeling his body become numb.

"Experts say fewer than 10 percent of all strokes happen to people under 45," ABC reporter Abbie Boudreau said on "GMA."

"I've literally to this day never had a sip of alcohol in my life, I've never had any drugs, literally never smoked a cigarette," Muniz said when asked what factors could have contributed to the mini stroke. "I can't get a deep breath in. I'm still trying to make sense of it, but happy that I'm alive."

DMX puts hip-hop spin on 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer'

Posted by Emily Wright December 4, 2012 01:16 PM

Aside from Run DMC's 1987 recording of Christmas in Hollis, there haven't been many hip-hop holiday songs -- until yesterday when DMX dropped his own rendition of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." The "Party Up" rapper stopped by the radio station 106.7 Lite FM in New York City, which is playing non-stop Christmas music during the holiday season. He put on quite the show for the DJs.

DMX used his hands to drum on a desk in the studio, creating back-up percussion while he sang, and chimed in with a bunch of "come on's" reminiscent of his early rap songs.

What do you think of his rendition? How about the fact that he remembered all of the reindeer names? Let us know your thoughts here in the comments.

Report: IRS seizes Lindsay Lohan's bank accounts

Posted by Emily Wright December 4, 2012 11:41 AM

"Liz & Dick" star Lindsay Lohan reportedly owes the IRS more than $200,000 for 2009 and 2010 unpaid taxes, and the federal agency seized all of her bank accounts to cover the debt, according to TMZ.

"Charlie Sheen generously paid Lindsay $100,000 to help alleviate Lindsay's 2009 tax problem -- but we're told Charlie's check barely scratched the surface ... because Lindsay also owes money for 2011," TMZ reported.

Other celebrities have gotten into hot water for tax evasion, including actor Wesley Snipes, who is currently serving a three-year prison sentence for the crime, and rapper Lauryn Hill who plead guilty to evading taxes on $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007.

Adam Levine slams 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'

Posted by Kristi Palma December 4, 2012 06:59 AM

Adam Levine is slamming the TLC show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," calling it "the decay of Western civilization."

"The Voice" coach and Maroon 5 frontman is disgusted by the show, he told GQ magazine in its December issue. Levine said,
"That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That's. Ever. Happened" and he dropped several f-bombs during the interview to emphasize his point.

The TLC show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" averages 2.3 million viewers a week, reports E! News. Levine said to GQ, "Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good."

The show follows 7-year-old Alana Thompson, who first gained fame on the TLC show "Toddlers and Tiaras." The pint-sized beauty queen is known for guzzling what she calls "go go juice" -- a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew.

Celebrities are divided on the Honey Boo Boo front. Some admit to loving the show, while others downright refuse to watch it.

Meanwhile, celebs like Miley Cyrus and Rosie O'Donnell love the show.

"When I hear her go, 'Holla for a dolla,' the whole house shakes," Cyrus told Handler.

However, her fiance Liam Hemsworth, refuses to watch the show, she said.

O'Donnell said, in an interview with People.com in October, "This is really revolutionary TV in a way most people won't understand."
