Montag-Pratt wedding not legal?

Daly's gonna be a daddy

It's last call for Carson Daly's carefree childless days, as People says the 35-year-old late-night host is expecting his first child with girlfriend Siri Pinter. "Carson is thrilled to be a father and they are looking forward to an extra special Thanksgiving this year with family and friends," his rep Heather Lylis told the mag. Great ready to see the little babe in the spring. That's quite a way for him to ring in New Year's Eve with Carson Daly this year.

Ramsay admits affair

Foodie show junkies out there might like to know that Gordon Ramsay is going through a little hell himself lately, grovelling for forgiveness from wife Tana over meetings with an outspoken mistress, the Daily Mail writes. Looks like he had plenty cooking in the kitchen. The paper says the TV chef admitted to hooking up with homewrecker Sarah Symonds four times, even though Symonds says they've been heating things up for seven years. Tana seems to have taken the admission and apology quite well, appearing in public holding hands with Gordon and generally making it look like the couple are still together. "I'm so sorry I've put Tana through this," a source for the Daily Mirror claims Ramsay said. "I've apologized to her and I feel absolutely dreadful. She really doesn't deserve all this grief." The spy says Gordon is pretty angry about the whole thing and calls a lot of Symonds' claims "bulls---." What, like her claims of hour-long phone sex sessions and her ability to identify scars on his body as proof? Really, we just can't picture Ramsay angry about much of anything, especially little deets like that.

In the gee-no-kidding moment of the holiday week, questions have arisen over the validity of Heidi Montag's and Spencer Pratt's quickie so-called wedding in Mexico on Nov. 20. You mean the two Hills lovebirds may not be legally married? Wow, good thing we have laws in place to define what a loving marriage should be, huh? "We had a beautiful ceremony here ... officiated by a minister and photographed by the hotel photographer. We've never been happier," said the couple in a statement provided by Us Weekly. "And, like other elopements that happen outside the country, we'll take care of the legal details when we get home." They had neither obtained a marriage license nor taken part in a separate civil ceremony, which is required by Mexican law to make the union binding, the AP points out. A couple can register their marriage up to 10 days after a ceremony, but California does not recognize marriage ceremonies outside the United States, according to the state's Department of Public Health. A couple can petition a court later to have their marriage legally recognized, but these two PR hounds have not specifically said when they would do this, or have a separate ceremony stateside. We're on the edge of our seats over all this, but then, Thanksgiving is over, so we can't help but be spilling over the edge of our seats.

Aubrey O'Day gets naked

Danity Kane may not have wanted Aubrey O'Day, but Hugh Hefner sure seems to. TMZ says the bounced-out blond is taking it all off for Hef's mag Playboy. Sources told the site that the attention-grabber was at a photo studio in Manhattan all day this week shooting a spread. They say photographer Markus Klinko was shooting her (with a camera, of course) posing with lion cubs and everything. All of this begs the age-old question of what defines a celebrity, though. If it's getting kicked off a reality show and then posing naked to get people to pay attention, we think that changes Andy Warhol's definition of 15 minutes of fame.

Jolie pregnant? Again?

Is it possible that Angelina Jolie is pregnant with Brad Pitt's baby again? Already? For like the third time in four years? InTouch Weekly says it's so. And since they broke the news of twins Knox and Vivienne, it must be true, right? Right?? "An excited Angie can't stop talking about the new baby. So why doesn't Brad seem thrilled?" shouts the headline on the cover of this week's new ish. Maybe because the man wants to get some sleep (of course, he shoulda considered that in the first place). "Anything could happen. We're open to anything, we love kids and we're having a great time," Angie recently said at the DVD launch for Kung Fu Panda. "It's chaos in our house, but it's so much fun. We'll definitely have more." But not even The Juice* thought it would be so soon. There's some kind of revolving door joke here, but we can't quite bring ourselves to write it.

The latest twist in the Hulk Hogan melodrama: Linda Bollea's boyfriend, 20-year-old Charles F. Hill, filed an injunction for protection against Terry Bollea last Thursday. That's the same day a judge denied it. Gee, whatever for?

In his filing, Hill said he was being "dangerously followed" by Hulk Hogan while driving west on Turner Street in Clearwater. When they came to the light at Chestnut Street and Oak Avenue, Hulk Hogan "pulled up next to him and stared at him," the petition said. That incident happened on Nov. 11 at 10:30 p.m., according to the filing.

On Nov. 12, the petition said, Hill was followed by Hulk from the beach to Hill's house on Lantana Avenue on Clearwater Beach. Hill wrote that Hulk was "tailgating & intimidating" him.

These events led Hill to fear that Hulk will "attempt to kill or injure him, since Petitioner (Hill) is dating respondent's estranged wife, Linda Bollea."

The petition asked that Hulk be barred from coming within 500 feet of Hill, or the places he works: Captains School in St. Petersburg and Anchor Pool Services in Clearwater. Why would he ever want to kill the pool boy his greedy wife is now dating?

"This is just another blatant attempt by Linda Hogan to try to defame Hulk Hogan's character," Hulk's lawyer David Houston tells TMZ. "We commend the judge on seeing through this ridiculous stunt and denying these baseless claims."

Of course, when you think about it for five seconds, Hill's story isn't so far-fetched. But the Hulkster is used to fake fights, so he's probably fairly safe.
