Scandal star Scott Foley is preparing to become a father for the third time. Foley's wife, actress Marika Dominczyk, is expecting another child later this year (14).
The actor, who turned 42 on Tuesday (15Jul14), took to Twitter.com to post a photo of Dominczyk holding an oversized frying pan, along with the caption, "My pregnant wife thought I might want this for my birthday. I'm not the one with the bizarre cravings."
Foley, who was previously married to Jennifer Garner, celebrated his seventh wedding anniversary with Dominczyk last month (Jun14).
The couple is already parents to daughter Malina, three, and son Keller, two.
Singer Jessica Simpson shed a few extra pounds in the lead-up to her weekend (05Jul14) wedding by adopting a strict vegan diet.
The blonde beauty has been showing off a slimmer figure in recent months after losing the pregnancy pounds from carrying her second child, son Ace, last year (13) with the help of a food plan from Weight Watchers, for which she is a spokeswoman.
However, Simpson wanted to make sure she looked her absolute best when she exchanged vows with former American footballer Eric Johnson in California on Saturday, so she temporarily cut out all animal products from her diet. A source tells UsMagazine.com, "Jessica did a vegan diet for about two weeks leading up to the wedding."
The newlywed also reportedly boosted her vitamin levels by getting "quite a few" B12 shots to help maintain a healthy brain and nervous system.
Simpson has since returned to her meat-eating ways - at a pre-wedding Independence Day bash on Friday (04Jul14), guests were treated to a feast of beef brisket, smoked barbecue baby back ribs, fried chicken and grilled shrimp, as well as a variety of pies and watermelon.
Simpson isn't the first superstar to go vegan - Jennifer Lopez recently adopted the plant-based diet to get her in tip-top shape for the release of her new album AKA, while Beyonce and her rapper husband Jay Z also tried a 22-day vegan challenge last year (13).
British actress Jennifer Ellison is pregnant with her third child. The Les Miserables star has confirmed she is expecting another baby with her husband Robbie Tickle later this year (14).
Ellison, who is six months pregnant, admits she was shocked by the news as she has suffered fertility problems in the past and doctors previously warned her she might not be able to conceive again.
She tells British magazine OK!, "I have really bad ovarian cysts and the doctors said I wouldn't be able to conceive again - then this happens!"
The couple is already parents to sons, Bobby, four, and Harry, 11 months.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have finalised their divorce, three years after their headline-grabbing split. The Latin superstars parted ways in 2011 after seven years of marriage, and Anthony moved to make their separation official by filing legal papers in April, 2012.
The union was officially declared over on Monday (16Jun14), when a Los Angeles judge signed off on their divorce and custody agreement.
Lopez was given primary custody of their six-year-old twins Max and Emme, while Anthony will spend seven days a month with the kids. They will share joint legal custody.
However, there were strict rules about the children's care - their nannies must accompany Max and Emme when they stay with their dad, and both stars must use their "best efforts" to keep the youngsters out of the public eye and shield them from "aggressive news organizations and photographers", reports TMZ.com.
The former couple also agreed there was no need for spousal or child support. Anthony had previously handed over $18,000 (£11,250)-a-month for their twins.
The amicable settlement is good news for Anthony, who was last week (ends13Jun14) ordered to increase his child support payments to his second ex-wife, Dayanara Torres, to $26,000 (£15,356)-a-month for the ongoing care of their two sons.
Meanwhile, the divorce will give Lopez a fresh start following her recent break-up from her dancer boyfriend Casper Smart.
Marc Anthony has settled his court battle with ex-wife Dayanara Torres after he was ordered to pay $26,000 (£15,356)-a-month in child support fees. The I Need To Know hitmaker's long battle legal came to an end on Thursday (12Jun14) when a Los Angeles County court judge ruled that he must provide support for his two sons, Christian Anthony Muniz and Ryan Anthony Muniz, according to E! News.
Former Miss Universe Torres had been fighting for an increase in her monthly payments after claiming his salary had jumped dramatically since they settled their divorce and custody issues in 2004.
In addition to Torres' child support requests, she also asked for an estimated $4,000 (£2,362) to $7,000 (£4,133) in order to pay for a nanny and housekeeper.
Anthony also pays his third ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez, $18,000 (£11,250)-a-month for their twins Max and Emme.
Actress Jennifer Aniston is reportedly set to become an aunt - her younger half-brother's partner is pregnant. Alex Aniston, known to pals as A.J., was recently photographed leaving a Los Angeles medical clinic with his girlfriend Adriane Hallek, who was clutching an ultrasound photo purportedly showing their unborn child.
The young couple has yet to comment on the baby news or their relationship, but model and make-up artist Hallek tells the National Enquirer, "He's a great guy, but I don't want to talk about him. He likes his privacy."
A.J. is the son of veteran actor John Aniston and his second wife, Sherry Rooney.
If the baby news is true, the baby will be John's first grandchild.
It's difficult to believe that these are the women we used to see falling over drunk in bars all over the Jersey Shore, but a lot has changed since MTV introduced us to Snooki, JWOWW, Sammi, and Deena. JWOWW just had a baby shower that many of her former Jersey Shore cast mates attended, and things looked pretty sweet:
The best part about this picture is that we get to see the two roommates turned best friends turned pregnancy buddies side by side. It just makes the whole thing real.
Snooki (Nicole Polizzi) is getting ready to welcome her second child with fiancé Jionni, and this will be the first child for JWOWW (Jennifer Farley) and her fiancé Roger Mathews. If Sammi gets pregnant next, the world may actually stop spinning.

May 6, 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of the series finale of Friends, a television event the likes of which we still haven't seen, even after Walter White took on a gang of white supremacists and Ted Mosby revealed that his wife had been dead the whole time. But while we often look back on Monica, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey with fondness and joy, we tend to overlook the fact that these characters could often be terrible human beings. Those funny, charming New Yorkers you always wanted to hang out with often behaved in a way that was better suited to the gang at Paddy's Pub. What makes Friends even more evil than It's Always Sunny, though, is that so many of the gang's despicable deeds were simply glossed over by the writers. In honor of the finale's 10th anniversary, and the celebratory marathon you're no doubt planning, we've rounded up the gang's worst behavior, and the ways that the show taught us to look past it. Think of it as adding some much needed balance to your sitcom nostalgia.
Rachel Making Barry's Wedding About HerIt should be said from the start that Rachel’s ex fiancé Barry is the worst. But that still doesn’t exclude her from making his wedding to her best friend Mindy all about her. Yes, he placed a bet on how much torture she’d endure, but your friends' wedding is not the place for your big, redemptive speech about how you’ve moved on, forgiven them, and become a better person in the end. Just write it in the card!
Monica Wearing Emily's Wedding DressWhile it’s not nearly as morally reprehensible as some of the actions on this list, Monica secretly wearing her future sister in law’s wedding gown around her apartment, just to boost her own self-esteem is a pretty rude (and weird) thing to do. It’s not your day, it’s not your dress, and it’s not about you!
Chandler Pressuring Rachel to Start SmokingChandler’s been a smoker since the age of nine, and even though he managed to give up cigarettes, he’s apparently still a big fan of the smell. So much so that he would pressure Rachel to take up smoking just so he wouldn’t have to give up the smell along with the cigarettes... even though it could, say, get her addicted and possibly lead to a great deal of health problems.
Rachel Spreading Lies About Tag's Sexual Orientation to Keep Him Single Tag was a hot, single guy in an office full of women, so naturally Rachel had some competition for his affections. However, her plan to tell everyone else in the office that he was gay in order to get them to back off wasn't the way to handle that. Generally speaking, making up elaborate stories about friends', coworkers', and (especially!) hopeful significant others' sexual identities is a pretty psychotic move.
Monica Not Checking On Her Infant Nephew After He Hit His HeadIn all fairness to Monica, baby sitting can be tough. But when you accidentally hit your nephew’s head on the ceiling, your first though shouldn’t be “How can I hide this from his father so that I don’t get in trouble?” but rather, “Hey, is my toddler nephew okay? He hit his head pretty hard, and I wouldn’t want him to be seriously injured.”
Ross Firing Emma's Nanny Because He's a GuyEmma's first nanny, Sandy (Freddie Prinze Jr.), was everything a parent could want: he was smart, competent at his job, good with Emma, and he even taught Joey a thing or two. But Sandy didn't stick around for very long purely because Ross couldn't wrap his head around the idea of a male nanny. Because apparently, it doesn't matter how good you are at caring for a child; if you're not a lady, you're not fit to raise Ross' kid. That's just bona fide sexism from the would-be intellectual.

Chandler Constantly Mistreating JaniceWe’re not going to deny that Janice’s laugh is really annoying. But that still doesn’t make it okay for Chandler to have Phoebe dump her so he doesn’t have to, call her whenever he’s lonely, sleep with her, and then dump her again the next day. Or lie about moving to Yemen just so she won’t bother him. Or pretend to be in love with her, even though he knows she still has feelings for him, in order to manipulate her into moving away. Turns out Chandler was a total jerk.
The Gang (and Show) Endorsing a Relationship Between an Adult and a MinorEverybody remembers that Phoebe was a surrogate for her brother, Frank, and his wife Alice, so that they could have a family. What they tend to forget is that Frank and Alice started dating when he was a minor and she in her 40s. He was a student in her Home Economics class in high school, and that he often referred to her as “Mrs. Knight” rather than by her first name. Monica, Rachel, and Ross were all guilty of similar malfeasances with younger lovers. Oh, but they were all madly in love, so the statutory rape is totally fine.
Rachel Convincing Bonnie to Shave Her HeadWhen Phoebe decides to set her friend Bonnie up with Ross, Rachel is supportive only because she remembers that Bonnie is bald, and knows that Ross wouldn’t find that attractive. So, when it turns out that Bonnie’s hair has grown back and Ross is interested, Rachel convinces her to shave he hear again, gives her the razor to do it with, and then confesses her feelings to Ross while he and Bonnie are in the middle of a fight. But as long as Ross and Rachel end up together, who cares what happens to everyone else, right?
Monica Getting Drunk in Front of Her Alcoholic BoyfriendWhen Monica’s boyfriend Fun Bobby realizes that he has a drinking problem and gets sober, rather than being supportive of him, she just becomes upset that he’s not “fun” anymore – the gang even goes so far to rename him “Ridiculously Dull Bobby” – and she starts drinking heavily in order to endure her dates with him. Because if your boyfriend is really, really boring, it’s okay to get rid of him by any means necessary... even if it means tempting him with the very substance he's worked very hard to kick.
Manipulating People Who Were Mentally IllNo, it’s not okay to threaten your roommate or watch him while he’s sleeping. But you know what else isn’t okay? Taking advantage of someone’s mental illness as a way of tricking them into move out of your apartment and leaving you alone, which is exactly what Chandler did to his roommate Eddie. Also not okay? Convincing a mentally unstable woman who thinks Joey is actually his soap opera character Dr. Drake Ramoray to run away to Salem to “be with Drake” in order to get her to stop stalking him. At least they’ve got that peace and quiet now, though, right?
So... Many... Homophobic Jokes...Whether someone was making wisecracks about Chandler and Joey's friendship or Ross was freaking out over his ex-wife's new wife, it's hard to name a post-Season 4 episode of Friends without a single homophobic joke in it. They were practically a fundamental part of Chandler's characterization, especially when the show delved into his relationship with his father. And yet everybody just went along with Chandler and Joey keeping barnyard animals as pets. Clearly, the writers were mining the wrong territory for jokes.
And worst of all...
Nobody Ever Made the Effort to Go to Phoebe's Place!Phoebe made that trip across town every single day to hang out with her friends. Every single day. And they just about never returned the favor by heading over to her neighborhood. Sure, most of them lived in one building and Central Perk was nearby, but it would have been nice of them to give their friend a day off from schlepping all the way across the city just to have yet another conversation about the relationship status of Ross and Rachel.
Salsa star Marc Anthony has been ordered to submit a full record of his accounts as he continues to battle his ex-wife Dayanara Torres over child support. Former Miss Universe Torres has been fighting for an increase in her monthly payments for their young sons Cristian and Ryan after claiming his salary had jumped dramatically since they settled their divorce and custody issues in 2004.
She is seeking to boost her regular $13,000 (£8,125) instalments to $112,000 (£70,000), but Anthony has been challenging her request, insisting he pays her more than enough to afford a comfortable home and lifestyle. He has blamed her poor money management for her financial struggles.
The case went before a Los Angeles County court judge on Thursday (01May14), when Torres accused Anthony of hiding his fortune to avoid paying her more.
Anthony maintained her monthly funds are more than adequate for their boys and argued any more would "spoil them rotten".
However, the judge refused to let Anthony off the hook and ruled he must submit a full accounting of his income and expenses by Tuesday morning (06May14), reports TMZ.com.
The singer previously revealed in legal documents that he earns a massive $1.25 million (£781,250)-a-month and also pays his third ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez, $18,000 (£11,250)-a-month for their twins Max and Emme.
