Rumors have been flying for weeks that Jessica Biel is expecting her first baby with husband Justin Timberlake after several reports of baby bump sightings have surfaced. (Side note: We saw one of these alleged baby bumps, and to the untrained eye, it may appear to be a super-flat stomach. But what do we know?)
“Jessica is at least three months pregnant,” an anonymous pal “close to” the 7th Heaven actor told Radar Online. “And she’s due in April!”
This would be the first child for Biel, 32, and Timberlake, 33. They celebrated their two-year anniversary last week while vacationing in New Zealand.Full Story
Let’s go ahead and file this one in the Best News We’ve Heard All Decade folder: NBC has outbid several networks to land the Neil Patrick Harris-hosted comedy-variety series of our dreams.
The yet-to-be named adaptation, based on the U.K.’s long-running Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, will run for at least 10 glorious hour-long episodes. The show will include comedy sketches, musical numbers, mini game shows and appearances by A-listers, NBC tells the Associated Press.
“As I watched (Takeaway), I couldn’t stop smiling. Now that I’ve seen many seasons, my face hurts. It’s a game changer,” Harris said. “Nothing like this has been done before, and its unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun.”
Just a few months ago, Harris told Howard Stern that he’s pretty stoked about the idea of a show he was absolutely born to host. …Full Story
Look! Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin avoiding each other. And this was before the breakup.
So, it seems the rumors about Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin calling it quits are true. And the rumors about them having a baby together are not, so at least they have that going for them.
“Jen is the one who broke it off with Chris,” a source tells People, thus making her the winner.
The Hunger Games actress and her Coldplay singer ex dated for about four months, during which they were photographed together only once. The couple started seeing each other in June, when Lawrence was fresh out of a relationship with X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult, and Martin had recently consciously uncoupled from Gwyneth Paltrow.
The Oscar and Grammy winners eased into their relationship with a few quiet date nights at Martin’s Malibu home, then Lawrence started following him around from show to show like a good little groupie.
E! News first reported the split, but no one seems to know why everything went horribly wrong. Though, what we do know is that Martin and Paltrow have oft been photographed together since their breakup, so therefore, obligatory controversy. …Full Story
Wait. Wait just a minute. You mean to tell us that The Bachelor’s Juan Pablo Galavis was given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hand-pick his ideal woman Nikki Ferrell from a nationally broadcast lineup of hot ladies, and go through VH1’s intensive Couples Therapy, but these two are still unable to keep their magical made-for-TV romance alive? Color us shocked.
Yes, the former pro soccer star and his pediatric nurse girlfriend are finally done, and they have the cryptic social media posts to prove it.
First, Season 18 Bachelor winner Ferrell, 27, unfollowed Galavis on Twitter and Facebook on Sunday — a total death knell. Then she posted this gem on Instagram: “Isn’t it pathetic how we waste so much time on certain people and in the end they prove that they weren’t even worth a second of it," captioning the post, "Nope not one single second.” Ouch.
Galavis, 33, answered by unfollowing and following Ferrell on Instagram repeatedly/creepily from Sunday night into Monday morning. He also tweeted, “Sometimes you WIN, sometimes you LOSE… You will ALWAYS learn…” …Full Story
Billy Crystal remembers longtime friend Robin Williams with his children Zelda, Zak and Cody Williams.
The Giants paid tribute to late fan and beloved actor Robin Williams at AT&T Park before Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday, and the Oscar winner’s family and friends were there to take part and absorb the outpouring of love.
The ballpark’s big screen showed several of the comedian’s most popular characters before Zak Williams, Robin’s oldest son, threw the ceremonial first pitch to the actor’s longtime friend, Billy Crystal. Siblings Zelda and Cody joined Zak on the mound as the center-field scoreboard featured highlights of Williams’ films as well as photos from his visits to the ballpark — one of which showed him with Barry Bonds and Willie Mays.
The tribute also included a clip of Williams leading Giants fans in a pregame chant, the perfect way to kick off San Francisco’s final home game of the World Series. …Full Story
My, Las Vegas sure was busy locking down a pair of mega pop stars this week, and lucky for you, we’re here to answer the question on everyone’s minds: Who will rake in more dough, Jennifer Lopez or Britney Spears?
According to TMZ, Lopez was offered $350,000 per show at The Axis at Planet Hollywood, which is the same place Spears performs. J Lo will put on 70 shows, three times a week for 24 weeks over one or two years, guaranteeing her $26,383,326.
Spears’ first 50 shows at The Axis were so popular that she was just offered a new deal of $310,000 per performance, with 96 shows over two years. That comes to $29,760,000.
But her tickets sold so fast, actually shattering Vegas records, that Team Spears decided it would behoove them to score merchandising and other sweeteners. So, in the end, Brit will actually earn around $475,000 per show. Plus, Planet Hollywood added more dates to her schedule; she’ll lip sync 140 times instead of the originally agreed upon 96. And, just to make sure you feel as sick to your stomach about this as we do, we have to let you know that with everything else she has going on, Spears’ people deposit $1 million per WEEK into her bank account. …Full Story
Honey Boo Boo, Mama June and Kaitlyn Shannon.
Rejoice, for the end may be near for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
TLC is “reassessing” the series’ future after a TMZ report surfaced saying that Mama June is dating a convicted child molester, something that likely won’t jibe too well with a family show that follows a child beauty pageant contestant and the rest of her Georgian clan.
“TLC is not currently in production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series,” a network spokesperson told the Washington Post in a statement.
Season 4 wrapped in August and a new season has yet to be announced.
In September, Mama June and Sugar Bear announced their separation on the show’s Facebook page.
“Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship,” they wrote. “We are taking things day by day, but regardless of what happens, the girls will always be our number one priority. We want to thank y’all for your support.” …Full Story

Must be something in the Evian, because there are tons of celebabies on the way. Here's a little roundup:
STANLEY TUCCIFull Story
The Hunger Games actor and his wife Felicity Blunt are expecting their first child together. “I’m very excited to be a dad.

Dustin Lynch had a bloody smashing time at his concert on Friday, and he’s got the tough-guy selfie to prove it.
The country singer was performing at the 2014 Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival, aka MulletFest, in Niceville, Fla., when a less-than-nice audience member chucked a can of beer at his face. Lynch went on with the show despite having blood pouring from an open wound above his right cheekbone.
“Who threw the beer?” he asked the audience, as seen in a video obtained by TMZ. “You did? Come here! You, come here! You threw a beer and hit me in the face! Come here! Who was it?”
Lynch told People the beer can was “completely full,” adding, “It felt like a baseball had hit me.”
He tweeted about it later so fans would know how rugged he really is.
“On my way to the hospital for a few stitches, I’ll be okay,” he wrote. “I appreciate all of you. Fyi the guy who hit me with a beer can got away ...”
Lynch was such a good sport he took a selfie with a fan’s phone after having his face split open.
“Some douchebag threw a beer can at this beautiful man,” @TaylorBoisjolie so eloquently captioned the photo on Twitter. “So sorry...Niceville really does have good people.” …Full Story
Sorry, fans of song and dance and unthreatening, handsome face. Matthew Morrison is off the market.
The Glee actor wed girlfriend Renee Puente in an intimate ceremony in Maui on Saturday, People reports.
The couple exchanged vows in front of 50 of their nearest and dearest on a private estate in Kihei. Pianist Chad Whidden played for the crowd and Kiley Dean sang Feels Like Home as the bride walked down the aisle. Things got even more cheesy when Puente performed a Hula dance for her newly wedded husband — and then he joined in for a couple’s Hula and duet, singing Laura Benanti’s Starry Eyed/Video Games and likely making everyone in the crowd roll their teary eyes in unison.
Congrats to the too-happy couple.Full Story
All these years we thought Bono was just desperately trying to look cool. Turns out the U2 singer doesn’t wear sunglasses indoors and out, 24/7 just to look like a rock star; he also does it because he’s had glaucoma for 20 years.
The condition can make the eyes sensitive to light, which is decidedly inconvenient for someone who spends his waking hours in the literal spotlight. However, the condition is rather convenient for someone whose persona totally jibes with wearing shades.
Bono revealed his affliction on BBC’s Graham Norton Show but said “I have good treatments and I am going to be fine.” So don’t lose any sleep at night, fans. The rocker also said he’s pretty sure we’re all going to think of him from now on as “poor old blind Bono.” And he’s absolutely right about that.Full Story
The body of missing Django Unchained actress Misty Upham was found late last week at the bottom of a ravine.
According to the Associated Press, the King County medical examiner confirmed that the Frozen River star’s remains were located Thursday near the White River in the Seattle suburb of Auburn. Upham’s purse and shoes were found at the top of the 150-foot embankment. The cause of death is still under investigation, but officials say there is no evidence of foul play.
Upham died on Oct. 5, the medical examiner’s office said. That’s the same day her family told police the Native American actress was suicidal, and one day before they reported her missing.
On the night the 32-year-old August: Osage County actress disappeared, police were called to her apartment because she was having a “psychotic episode” and wanted to take her to the hospital, her dad, Charles Upham, tells People. But she was already gone when officers arrived.
Her family is now saying they believe she did not commit suicide but rather slipped and fell while evading police. …Full Story
David Letterman’s longtime cue-card holder has been fired after getting into an altercation with a writer.
According to the New York Post, Tony Mendez says he cued his own canning after grabbing a colleague, Bill Scheft, by the shirt while on the job at CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman on Oct. 9. The 69-year-old tells the Post he knew better but did it anyway.
“I know I shouldn’t have put my hands on him,” he said.
Mendez also said Letterman knew nothing about tensions between the two and that the tussle had been “coming for a long time.”
“[Scheft] encroaches on my work," Mendez said. "He tells me what to do, and I have to say, ‘I know what I’m doing.’ And a lot of time when I am making changes [to the cards], he’ll stand there looking over my shoulder, and he’ll say something like, ‘Put that on top,’ because he got an idea.
“Bill was always undermining me — making himself out as Dave’s No. 1,” Mendez added. “Trying to pretend that I wasn’t even in the room . . . little passive-aggressive things."
Letterman, Mendez and Scheft got into it on Oct. 8 while making changes to cards during rehearsal. Mendez was still fuming the next day when the altercation took place. …Full Story
It appears this one is far from a Bad Romance. Word on the street, or Internet, is that Lady Gaga and her boyfriend, Chicago Fire’s Taylor Kinney, are maybe totally getting married.
Here’s what’s we know:
Two weeks ago, Fire alum Sophia Bush posted an Instagram of herself getting a super warm-looking bear hug from Kinney. All anyone who saw the photo could focus on was the ring Kinney was wearing on that one significant digit. Accompanying the photo: “#ThatsHisPersonalRing #NotForTheShow #EveryoneCalmDown,” the exact opposite of what you should write if you want everyone to calm down.
The Daily Star later reported that the Marry the Night singer, 28, and her actor beau, 33, recently gathered friends and family for a commitment ceremony in New York. It all went down at Joanne Trattoria, a restaurant owned by Gaga’s parents.
“Gaga wanted something visual,” a mystery source tells the Star, “a commitment ceremony with the people who matter most.”
The publication says the couple, who have dated since 2011, plan to wed in the near future.
“They will get married properly next year, when they have time to plan a wedding,” said the unnamed insider. …Full Story
Hollywood is mourning the loss of Cuban-American actress Elizabeth Peña, whose talent shined through versatile roles in film and television over the course of four decades.
Peña died Tuesday in Los Angeles after a brief illness, according to her manager, Gina Rugolo, the Los Angeles Times reports. She was 55.

“The entire cast and crew are very sad to say goodbye to one of our Modern Family members,” wrote Jesse Tyler Ferguson. “RIP to the beautiful & talented #ElizabethPeña.”
