"I felt for Kim - I knew exactly what she was going through. I send a lot of love her way and I know she'll come back with a bang." Jessica Simpson felt bad for Kim Kardashian as the reality TV star was being criticised for her weight gain during her pregnancy.
Singer/actress Jessica Simpson has shown off her newborn baby son Ace Knute for the first time and revealed she is not planning on having any more kids. Simpson became a second-time mum in June (13) when she and fiance Eric Johnson welcomed Ace, who is a brother for their 15-month-old daughter Maxwell.
The doting parents are revelling in looking after the new addition to their family but Simpson has revealed she does not want to extend their brood any further - barring accidents.
Unveiling Ace in a photoshoot for U.S. magazine UsWeekly, she says, "With two kids, we have our hands full, but every day is a new adventure. It's fun! I feel very at peace with being a mom.
"Pregnancy is a lot (of work). It was hard to do two so close together. I have this huge sense of accomplishment, and I feel in my heart that I'm done. But obviously, accidents do happen!"
Former American football hero O.J. Simpson's luxury house is set to be repossessed on Tuesday (27Aug13). The disgraced sports star stopped paying the mortgage on the four-bedroom property in Kendall, Florida in 2010 and reportedly owes more than $892,283, (£573,064) in back payments.
A Miami-Dade County judge has ruled officials can take possession of the home, and it is due to be sold on an auction website in October (13).
The 66 year old lived at the house before he was convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas in 2008.
He was sentenced to serve up to 33 years behind bars in October, 2008 but has since been granted parole, which is due to begin in October (13). However, Simpson will serve at least another 12 months in jail over his use of a weapon during the robbery.
Snow Patrol rocker Tom Simpson has quit the group after playing a final gig in Northern Ireland on Thursday night (15Aug13). Frontman Gary Lightbody revealed news of the keyboardist's departure while on stage at the Tennent's Vital festival in Belfast and dedicated the band's hit Chasing Cars to the musician.
Lightbody told the crowd, "There is a slightly sad element to this gig. Tom Simpson has been in Snow Patrol since 1996 and tonight in Belfast is his last gig. Tom is going his separate way (sic)... He's decided he wants to do his own thing... We support him and love him as a brother."
The rockers celebrated Simpson's departure by presenting him with a cake, which was topped with an edible model of the band, while Lightbody passed on a message from his friend in a post on his Twitter.com page, writing, "Tom: Thank you to all our fans. Feeling heavy hearted today. It's been an amazing journey but I've come home now. God bless you all."
The singer adds, "Thank you Belfast for giving our Tom such a great send off. We knew you would. Sad today. Much love to you all good people. Bless your hearts."

Sports legend-turned-actor O.J. Simpson has been granted parole on some of the charges relating to his 2008 armed robbery conviction. Nevada Parole Board officials granted his request for leniency in his sentence on Wednesday (31Jul13).
Simpson still has to serve at least four more years behind bars because his sentences are to be served consecutively.
The parole board bosses ruled he was worthy of parole due to his "institutional conduct, participation in programs and lack of prior conviction history."
His parole becomes effective on 2 October (13). He'll then start serving a 12-month-minimum sentence related to his use of a weapon during the incident.
Simpson was sentenced to serve up to 33 years behind bars in October, 2008, for entering a Las Vegas hotel room with associates and collecting sports memorabilia that he claimed belonged to him.
Last week (ends26Jul13), Simpson told parole board members that his years in custody have been "painful" at times.
He explained, "I missed my two younger kids who worked hard getting through high school, I missed their college graduations. I missed my sister's funeral. I missed all the birthdays."
Pop singer/actress Ashlee Simpson went public with her new boyfriend Evan Ross at the launch of her sister Jessica's new clothing line in New York City on Tuesday night (30Jul13). Simpson turned out to support her elder sibling's latest venture, the launch of her Jessica Simpson Fall 2013 Campaign, at Manhattan venue Above Allen and she brought Diana Ross' son along as her date.
The 28 year old has been linked to Ross for several weeks, but Tuesday night's outing to the party marked their first public appearance as a couple.
Simpson previously dated Boardwalk Empire actor Vincent Piazza, and she has a four-year-old son, Bronx, with her rocker ex-husband Pete Wentz.
Jessica Simpson and Nicole Richie's U.S. reality show Fashion Star has been cancelled after two seasons due to low ratings. The style competition featured the pair as mentors, alongside menswear guru John Varvatos, giving 12 aspiring designers the chance to win a multi-million dollar contract and launch their line in America's largest retail stores, including Macy's and Saks Fifth Avenue.
The TV programme premiered to strong viewing figures last year (12), but its recent second season failed to capture audiences and now bosses at NBC, the network which aired the show, have confirmed it's been axed.
Supermodel Elle Macpherson served as host and an executive producer during its 2012 debut, but was replaced as presenter by Louise Roe, who took over the job earlier this year (13).
