  • Kourtney Kardashian's Style Is Better Pregnant: Don't Give Birth!
    By: Michelle Lee Jul 06, 2012
    It feels like Kourtney Kardashian has been pregnant forever (for her, too, no doubt). And what a pretty pregnancy it's been. In fact, all of her recent gorgeousness has gotten us thinking that the reality star dresses better when she's pregnant. What gives, Kourtney?  It's not that she isn't into fashion all the time: she and her sisters Kim and Khloe own a number of DASH boutiques around the country. And she's always talking about clothes. "I like to mix stuff," she's said. "Major designers with fun stuff I buy at the mall. I wear things that are not always expected. I do follow trends, but I think it is really important to know which trends are good for yourself."  So why does her fashion seem to fall apart without the baby bump?  What do you think? Does Kourtney look better pregnant? Take a peek at her recent pre-pregnancy and pregnant looks and decide for yourself and let's all say a collective prayer that her fashion mojo doesn't disappear after she gives birth.  Pre-baby Feathered Disaster
  • Suing Mad! Rihanna Claims Accountants Cheated Her Out of Millions
    By: Michelle Lee Jul 05, 2012
    Mismanaged finances have brought down many a successful pop act (remember TLC?). Now, Rihanna has filed a lawsuit against her former accountants for causing her to lose millions.  In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in a Manhattan court (but that surfaced today), the singer claims her ex-accounting firm Berdon LLP caused her "significant financial losses" between 2005 and 2010 by charging "exorbitant" commissions from her "Last Girl on Earth Tour" in 2010.  The suit also claims that the firm concealed facts regarding her finances. And the debacle has created a whole other mess for the Grammy winner. She now claims that the IRS is auditing her because Berdon mishandled tax returns.  Will this lead to a new frugal Rihanna? Will we ever see these Rihanna-on-a-yacht Twitpics again?

    By: Michelle Lee Jun 25, 2012
    She's kept hush-hush for weeks, but there's no denying it now. Megan Fox is pregnant! Fox and her husband Brian Austin Green jetted off to Hawaii for their second wedding anniversary. While in gorgeous Kona, the pair kissed and cuddled by the pool. And Green kissed her obviously-pregnant belly, in new pics. Fox, 25, who's already stepmom to Green's son Kassius, from his previous marriage to actress Vanessa Marcil, has called the 10-year-old one of the most beautiful things about her life.  "I love being a stepmom and I feel that the experience grounds me when nothing else makes sense in my life," the Dictator and Transformers actress once said.  And just last month, she clearly had babies on the brain, telling reporters, "I've always loved babies."  She and Green first met in 2004 and had a rocky relationship for several years before calling it quits in 2009. The pair ultimately reunited and eventually tied the knot in Hawaii in 2010.  What do you think? Will Megan and Brian have the most beautiful baby ever?  [Photo Credit: AKM-GSI] More: Megan Fox Opens Up About Being a Mom’Megan Fox: I Was an Ugly Loner: Her 5 Craziest Quotes Megan Fox Is Tired of Playing Sexy, Robotic Women Megan Fox

Here are 5 things to know:  1. Arie and Cassie dated briefly in 2003.  2. She's engaged to another fellow Bachelor producer, Pete Scalettar.

  • Whoa! Jenny McCarthy's Naked in 'Playboy' Again at 39 — PIC
    By: Michelle Lee Jun 25, 2012
    It's been almost 20 years since Jenny McCarthy posed nude for her first Playboy magazine shoot. And the reality host and mother has done it again — just months away from her 40th birthday.  The Love in the Wild host tells People magazine, "I'm really proud of it. The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They're really elegant. It's probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you'd see of people with their clothes on." And if you get Playboy for the articles, there's also a really smart story on Wes Anderson. And Afghanistan. But, yes, there are boobs, too.  More: Jenny McCarthy Scores New VH1 Show  Hugh Hefner Playboy Biopic Rescued: Budget Mostly Robes  Easter Egg Hunt at the Playboy Mansion –– PHOTOS Jenny

    By: Michelle Lee Jun 24, 2012
    Disney Pixar's latest film Brave topped the weekend box office with an impressive $66.7 million, beating Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  Although the movie opened to somewhat mixed reviews (read ours here), its ticket totals were no doubt helped by the start of summer vacation, plus 3D and IMAX prices. But how does the opening weekend for the warrior princess film stack up to Pixar's other biggest hits?  The answer: slight better than average.  Sure, it falls $44 million behind Toy Story 3, but that final installment in the popular Buzz Lightyear and Woody trilogy had the benefit of two previous audience-building films.  Here are the top 10 biggest opening weekends for Pixar:  1. Toy Story 3: $110.3 million2. The Incredibles: $70.4 million3. Finding Nemo: $70.25 million4. Up: $68.1 million5. Brave: $66.7 million6. Cars 2: $66.1 million7. Wall-E: $63.1 million8.

    By: Michelle Lee Jun 24, 2012
    Pregnant star Kourtney Kardashian is just days away from giving birth to her second child with boyfriend, Scott Disick. And media outlets are tripping over themselves to get their hands on the rights to the first photos.  Millions of reality fans are dying to know: What will Baby Girl Disick look like?   Whether you love or hate the Kardashians (let's just assume you hate Disick), one thing's for sure: their kids have some freakishly adorable genes.  Hands-down, Kourtney's 2-year-old son, Mason, is one of Hollywood's cutest kids. (In fact, he helped spark a major baby name trend. According to the U.S. Social Security Administration, the name Mason shot up the baby name charts to No. 2 in 2011).  And we know she'll be one expensively-dressed little girl. Her sister Khloe has already said she can't wait to spoil her new niece.  "Kourt is the most incredible mother in the world and I am beyond thrilled to see her family grow," she said. "Mason is going to be the cutest big brother to his baby sister, and I know I speak for the entire Kardashian/Jenner/Odom/Disick clan when I say we can't wait to spoil this little girl rotten!" For a look into the future, look no further than Kourtney and her sister Kim's own childhood pics: Beach babies Kim and Kourtney. (Hey, it's Kim's first bikini shoot!) Kourtney (left) and Kim before the kraziness. What do you think? Will Kourtney's baby girl look just like her? Will she fetch big bucks for the first baby pics? And, more importantly: how long before Mason and his little sis have their own spin-off show?  [Photos: Wenn and Twitter] More:Kardashians Reveal Racy Pics 10 Times This YearRyan Seacrest Watches Kourtney Kardashian Give Birth Kim Kardashian Gets Attacked by a Flour Bomb — VIDEO Kourtney baby
  • Alex Trebek Suffers Heart Attack on Day of 'Jeopardy' Emmy Win
    By: Michelle Lee Jun 24, 2012
    Legendary Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA on Saturday after suffering his second "mild heart attack" in five years. That same night, Jeopardy took home the Emmy Award for Outstanding Game/Audience Participation Show.  But his studio, Sony Pictures Television, has high hopes for a full recovery.  In a statement released Sunday, Sony said: “Trebek is in good spirits and is currently under observation and undergoing further testing. He is expected to fully recover and be back at Jeopardy! when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show's 29th.” Trebek, who's hosted the popular show since the mid-80s, has had an eventful couple of years. He suffered his first heart attack in 2005. And in September 2011, he famously injured himself chasing down a burglar on foot and assisting in the arrest.  Here's to a speedy recovery!

    By: Michelle Lee Jun 24, 2012
    Beauty is only fur deep for the 29 dogs who competed at the World's Ugliest Dog competition on Friday in Petaluma, Calif.  Competing for bragging rights, a year's supply of dog cookies and a grand prize of $1,000, a patchy-haired Chinese Crested named Mugly from the UK took home the dubious title.  "I couldn't speak when they announced Mugly's name," his owner Bev Nicholson said. "I didn't know which way to look. I was shaking as much as the dog." Although Nicholson acknowledges her pet's unusual looks, she also says "he's beautiful, inside and out." Watch Mugly in action (in a little hat):
