Adele is recovering very nicely after her throat surgery, and she should be back to singing relatively soon. She wrote on her website, "Thank you for all your positive thoughts and well wishes. I'm really doing well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all. The operation was a success and I'm just chilling out now until I get the all clear from my doctors. Thank you to everyone who voted for the awards I've won recently as well. Hugely appreciated. I best get back to practicing my mime show now." - Adele
Even though Mariah Yeater has dropped the paternity suit against Justin Bieber, People Magazine reports she is still pursuing the matter outside the court of law and still wants a DNA sample from the singer. Yeater's new lawyer, Jeffrey M. Leving, said "We're negotiating with Beiber's counsel, to reach a confidentiality agreement and to get private testing and results." He also commented, "I just spoke to Mariah today, someone was recently stalking her. She is happy that she changed her number so she's not getting death threats by phone. She's a young 20-year-old mother who now has to worry about her safety and her child's. It's a lot for any woman that age to handle." Bieber's lawyer, Matthew Hiltzik, added "As we've said from the beginning, it's sad that someone would fabricate such a malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claim. We'll continue to consider all of our options to protect Justin." So it doesn't really look like this is resolved yet, even though it probably should be. - People
As you know, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 opens tomorrow, and it just so happens another movie about vampires and werewolves also opens tomorrow: it's called The Descendants, and it stars George Clooney! What a coincidence, right? Two movies about vampires opening on the same weekend? It's like two new Barbie Dolls being put on the shelves on the same day! At the premiere for The Descendants, Clooney acknowledged how the competition to be number 1 at the box office will be especially fierce this weekend by telling E! Online's Marc Malkin, "There's a lot of talk we're going to beat [the Twi-hards]. We are going against Breaking Dawn, but the big headlines come Monday will be 'Descendants Kicks the Hell Out of Breaking Dawn.'" You know The Descendants won't make more money this weekend than Twilight, because what teenager who's up to date on their shots would choose a boating accident in Hawaii over sex so rugged the headboard breaks? Although Bella does get pregnant on the first go, so maybe the youths will be desperate to avoid Breaking Dawn and will go see The Descendants, and just pretend their looking at a calendar. - E!

In what surely means the death of her threesome-loving character of Olivia Burke on Gossip Girl, Hilary Duff announced this weekend on her website that she and her husband of one year, Mike Comrie, are expecting their first child. In the post (which is now practically unviewable due to the surge of traffic but contains some of their favorite pictures from their wedding day), Duff wrote, "We also want to share the news that BABY MAKES THREE!!! We are extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives. Thanks to everyone for the continued love and support throughout the years!" As recently as August 12th, Duff was telling E! Online's Marc Malkin what she'd like for her one year anniversary present (either a green Yves Saint Laurent bag or a ruby), and suggested that while having a family was important to her and Comrie, they weren't quite ready to embark on the endeavor just yet. She said, "I think it was important to us that we had a year to do just whatever. And maybe longer than that because we enjoy having so much freedom. But we're thinking about it." I knew those gifts sounded more like "push presents" for a reason. Click the image below to see more photos of Hilary Duff!

After meeting around three months ago, Thirteen screenwriter Nikki Reed and American Idol contestant Paul McDonald are engaged. They confirmed the news as they walked the red carpet at last night's MTV Movie Awards, and Reed told E!'s Marc Malkin that McDonald "is the one." Reed also explained to Malkin that to celebrate their budding romance that they're going to try and make last forever, McDonald plans to release an EP that consists of songs he wrote in her honor. People still do that? - E!
Kim Kardashian cannot decide on a wedding dress because she "keeps changing [her] mind." "I definitely want something custom," she said, "and it's going to take some time to get sketches and all of that. There's really nothing that I saw in [my] mind, so I really have to buckle down and just sit and figure it out." I can't imagine how well her $65 million empire will take being on the back burner for a while. - People
Despite all our wishes, Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez haven't split up. They were seen hanging out at the MTV Movie Awards after party last night at SoHo House in L.A. doing what they do when there's no popcorn to hand feed each other -- make out and "lace" their fingers in each other's jeans. - Us
Well, well, well. What do we have here? A botched teenage romance? I do declare! Marc Malkin of E! Online is reporting that one of his sources told him that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have broken up because "they were together for so long" and "it just ran its course." Nobody cheated on anybody, which is almost worse than what really happened, which is nothing. Things just got boring and not even a stolen costume from Charlie St. Cloud could enliven it.
It should also be noted that tomorrow is Hudgens' 22nd birthday.
Let's all acknowledge that this could be a rumor. But let's not acknowledge it for too long, because they really have been dating forever, and things probably really did get crazy monotonous. What were they supposed to do next, inscribe their initials on berets and wear them to thrift shops on the weekends? No. They slowly grew to resent each other, obviously because Vanessa is about to appear in a Zach Snyder movie about girls with pig-tales in an insane asylum and Efron over here is playing old guys who get to be 17 again and another youth who sees his even youthier and dead brother in the forest. Yes, we're probably just hearing about it now, but the real departure happened a long time ago.
