Duchess Kate wears plaid McQueen for her first public event in months: lovely?

127936PCN_Catherine12

Yay!!!! Duchess Kate finally came to a scheduled event. She didn’t cancel at the last minute! This is Kate first public appearance since her second pregnancy was announced. It’s also her first public event since August 7th (the Tower of London appearance with William and Harry). Kate is said to be in the beginning of her second trimester and the worst of her hyperemesis gravidarum seems to be past. It was also announced over the weekend that Kate is due in April… doing the math, that means that she’s probably about 13-14 weeks along, I’m guessing. When the palace announced her due date, they also stressed the fact that Kate is expecting “a baby,” as in NOT twins. Just FYI.

As for this appearance today, Kate and William joined the Queen in welcoming the president of Singapore, Tony Tan Keng Yam, at Buckingham Palace. There was some sort of carriage procession. Kate wore a plaid Alexander McQueen coatdress which is utterly appropriate. It’s a demure, professional length and the fabric is heavy enough to ensure no “flouncy skirt blow-ups” or Marilyn Moments. Kate also wore a Jane Taylor hat. You can read more about the event here.

As I said, I think Kate looks completely appropriate. The coatdress is boringly pretty and smart, her hair isn’t flying all over the place and she’s put on some much-needed pregnancy weight, which is good. I’m glad she’s able to keep some food down. I hope this is the first of many appearances she makes during this pregnancy!

Kate is also due to attend the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 awards in London tonight. Since she wore McQueen during the day, I’m thinking…Stella McCartney?

Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds in his & hers Gucci at the Angel Ball: sexy?

wenn21846058

Here are some photos from last night’s Angel Ball 2014 in NYC. The biggest stars of the red carpet? Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. This was their first red carpet as a couple since Blake announced her pregnancy. They wore his-and-hers Gucci for the evening – Ryan wore a traditional Gucci tuxedo while Blake wore a Gucci Cruise gown, which I’m assuming was made just for her and her growing baby bump. I actually love the way Blake looks here – the plunging neckline on her gown could have ended up really trashy (and there are some questionable angles, for sure), but overall… she just looks sexy to me. She looks happy and fertile and sexy. Ryan’s mom Tammy came with them too.

Also: over the weekend, Ryan was “joking” about the crazy names they could give their baby – go here to read. I think Blake and Ryan will probably go bland-to-hipster with the baby name. Like, Saffron Violette or Phinneus Asher. The name will be WASPy.

More photos from the same event. Here’s Kris Jenner wearing too much makeup and a sparkly muumuu.

Sofia Vergara in a very strange gown – she usually goes for this kind of silhouette but not this kind of pattern. I’m not sure what to think.

Paris Hilton looking especially wonk-eyed.

And finally, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz. She’s knocked up too, but no one has paid that much attention to her second pregnancy.

Shakira & Milan Futbol Fans!

Shakira & Son Watching Gerard Pique Play SoccerAre these pictures TOO cute or what? Shakira and her son, Milan, are cheering on Gerard Pique from the sidelines during a futbol match (a.k.a. “soccer” in the US) between FC Barcelona and Eibar. Between Milan and her loose t-shirt, Shakira managed to keep her baby bump well hidden. RELATED: Shakira’s focused on her pregnancy and her son right now.

Check out the gallery to see the pictures of Gerard carrying Milan out onto the field. Adorable! And the icing on the cake? Barcelona won, 3-0. Perhaps Shakira and Milan are Gerard’s good luck charms. They better not miss any games- LOL.

Shakira said recently that, for right now, she’s focused on her family and her pregnancy. It’s a big transition when baby #2 comes, especially for the big sibling! Milan gets to enjoy his mother’s undivided attention for a little while. Hopefully he’s enjoying it. Meanwhile, it’s also a big change for mom to go from one baby to two. I’m sure Shakira’s doing all she can to prepare herself, not that there’s a whole lot she can do…

Blake Lively’s alleged cravings: ‘organic pumpkin ice cream & small-batch pickles’

FFN_Lively_Blake_TEACH_101714_51561199

Here are some photos of Blake Lively out and about in NYC on Friday. She stopped by Giggle, which I guess is some sort of baby-accoutrement shop, and she signed up for their baby registry. Crap, we have to buy her baby stuff for her?! Damn it, Blake! She also checked out Boffi, a “high end bath and kitchen design store,” according to Fame/Flynet. She tried out a new bathtub. As for her shopping outfit… well, it’s not my jam but whatever she wants. That coat is really loud and her skirt is really short. While on the red carpet on Thursday night, Blake already joked: “I’m gonna amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier.” Because she’s knocked up, get it? There’s also this funny (but probably not true) story about Blake’s cravings:

It seems those insatiable midnight cravings are getting the better of pregnant Blake Lively, who sends Ryan Reynolds out to get her PUMPKIN ice cream at midnight. The expectant actress has reportedly been keeping her hubby busy with endless requests for bizarre food.

They include hand-churned pumpkin-flavoured ice cream and pickles. Gross. A source told Heat magazine: “She sends Ryan out in the middle of the night for organic hand-churched pumpkin-flavoured ice cream and small-batch pickles. He barely has five hours’ sleep and even when he gets in bed, she asks for hour-long foot and neck massages.”

[From The Mirror]

If I found a dude willing to give hour-long neck massages, I would lock that sh-t down so fast it would make your head spin. It could be the grossest guy in the world, the dong situation could be completely tragic, but if there were hour-long neck rubs involved, I would force him into a marriage of convenience/neck-rubs. As for the organic, hand-churned pumpkin ice cream and “small batch pickles”… that sounds true but it probably isn’t. Who knows though? I could totally see Blake becoming one of those donut-shaming pregnant women. She seems like the type to side-eye anyone who would dare to eat Vlasic Pickles straight from the jar.

Meanwhile, CB sent me Blake’s latest word salad from Preserve. You can read it here and if you can explain what the hell Blake is talking about, God bless you. I think she’s trying to address the “Allure of Antebellum” situation. I think she’s trying to say that she knows she’s not perfect and she’s doing the best she can and that Preserve is about all of us so if we criticize her for being ignorant, we’re really criticizing ourselves. You know what I think is really interesting? Every time Blake sits down and writes one of her stupid word salads, more people lose respect for her. She used to be widely admired for brilliantly playing the Hollywood game. Now we’re like “Eh, she’s kind of dumb, right?”

Blake Lively Flaunts Her Baby Bump On The Red Carpet

God's Love We Deliver, Golden Heart AwardsAwww… look at Blake Lively’s baby bump! She’s flaunting it in that gorgeous dress on the red carpet at the God’s Love We Deliver, Golden Heart Awards. RELATED: Blake Lively dishes on “Bringing Up Baby.”

I have to give Blake full credit: that dress would be gorgeous whether she had a baby bump to dress or not. LOVE it. I swear, she’s glowing, too. Pregnancy agrees with her.

Of course, it’s not really a surprise that Blake is a gorgeous pregnant women. Given her good looks along with Ryan Reynolds and we KNOW this child is genetically blessed in the looks department.  What do you think of Blake’s look: are you a fan?

Jude Law is expecting his fifth child by his third baby-mama, an ex-girlfriend

wenn20989373

Does Jude Law have some sort of latex allergy? Because he impregnated yet another woman. And he’s not even dating his new baby-mama anymore. First, to recap: Jude Law and Sadie Frost were married for years, back in the 1990s into the early ‘00s. They had three children together and Jude always said that he felt like Sadie’s oldest son (with Gary Kemp) was his as well. They split up around the time Jude was filming Cold Mountain (and it was rumored he had an affair with Nicole Kidman, by the way, although no one ever mentions that now). Shortly after Jude and Sadie split up, he met Sienna Miller and they promptly became the “It Couple” of London. Then he banged his kids’ nanny. Then Jude and Sienna did the on-and-off thing for a while. Time passed, then he had a one night stand with Samantha Burke which resulted in another baby, daughter Sophia (who is five years old now). So, he already had four biological children (and one stepson, Finlay). Skip ahead to today because Jude got his ex-girlfriend Catherine Harding pregnant.

Jude Law is going to be a dad again! The Dom Hemingway star and his ex are set to welcome a baby together, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“I can confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding are expecting a child together in the spring. Whilst they are no longer in a relationship, they are both wholeheartedly committed to raising their child,” the actor’s rep says in a statement. “They consider this a private matter and other than this confirmation no statement will be made. I ask that you respect the privacy of all parties involved and their families.”

Law, 41, has three children with ex-wife Sadie Frost (sons Rafferty, 18, and Rudy, 12, and daughter Iris, who turns 14 this month) and another daughter, Sophia, 5, with model Samantha Burke.

“Being a daddy is what counts,” he told PARADE in 2009. “I used to sleep until noon, but it’s not so bad to have to get up at 7 and give them breakfast. My daughter made me realize that if there’s anything that’s going to make a man of you, it’s having your will broken by a little girl.”

[From People]

Bedhead just told me that she thinks Jude needs a vasectomy. That might be a good idea, because it doesn’t sound like Jude likes to wrap it up. And you know what? I had no idea he was even with anyone named Catherine Harding. The last time I checked, there were rumors about Jude and Ruth Wilson. I’ve also heard that Jude isn’t too happy about all of the child support he has to pay to Sadie and Samantha Burke, and now Catherine Harding as well. Jude Law is a mess.

PS… I’ll give him this though… he makes beautiful children.

Blake Lively in Michael Kors at the Golden Heart Awards: lovely or bland?

FFN_GG_GoldenHeartAwards_101614_51560288

Blake Lively was really making us wait for red carpet photos of her baby bump, and here we go. Blake attended the Golden Heart Awards (for God’s Love We Deliver) in NYC last night. She posed her bump off! Ryan Reynolds was not there… or, should I say, there are no photos of him on the red carpet. Blake wore this full-length Michael Kors gown which… I sort of like, even though it looks like confetti-covered pantyhose. She looks feminine and pretty and happy. So, good for her.

At the event, Blake told Us Weekly that her pregnancy is a dream come true: “It’s something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl. I never knew what I wanted to do for a living but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family, so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here.” She’s never known what she wanted to do for a living? Says the actress and Preserver. And baker. She also talked about Ryan a little, saying: “He’s always good to me. That’s like a jerky thing to say because you want to be able to complain about your husband and be that person, but he takes pretty good care of me.”

As for Preserve and Antebellum-gate, one good thing that’s happened is that more people are giving Preserve a more critical once-over. What had been seen as a silly but harmless side project is now being analyzed for content, plagiarism and just plain awful writing. Good. It’s about time. My suggestion to Blake: hire some real writers and some real website designers to make Preserve user-friendly. Plus, Blake’s purple prose needs to go.

Blake Lively reveals more baby bump photos on Preserve: adorable?

blake2

Blake Lively’s pregnancy rollout has been pretty good. Let’s be honest: if and when Amal Alamuddin gets pregnant, we will be inundated with story after story about her bump and George Clooney as a father and all of that. Compared to how wall-to-wall it could be, Blake looks almost circumspect. She announced her pregnancy on her newly launched Preserve site. She stepped out with Ryan Reynolds for one coupled-up, bumpy and EXCLUSIVE photo-op (Us Weekly bought the photos).

And now Blake is still controlling the story by releasing more photos of her bump on Preserve. I’m including some of the Preserve pics in this post, and you can see more here. The theme of the Preserve pictorial was, like, an autumnal celebration of motherhood, children and pregnancy. There were cakes and scarves and beautiful ginger children involved. Here’s what Blake wrote:

With a new baby on the way there is so much to do! But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux… there are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had.

And that we did…

[From Preserve]

“Reflux”? Do moms really refer to baby vomit as “reflux”? And “onesies to dye”??? Judgy mothers, commence! Honestly, though, I bet some of the judgy mothers were already side-eyeing the cake. Blake should be eating only veggies and lean protein during her pregnancy! She already hates her baby because she’s eating cake!! Obviously.

Dean McDermott’s ex-wife to Tori Spelling: ‘He’s your knob now’

Mary Jo Eustace

This is a truly bizarre development. Dean McDermott’s ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace, has appeared on an episode of Lifetime’s True Tori. This is the show’s second (and hopefully last) season. Tori’s getting paid very little to reprise her role as the scorned wife of a pompous douchebag. Dean’s receiving no paycheck at all, supposedly. Tori’s pulling out all the stops by claiming to be pregnant so people will watch the show. For whatever reason, Mary Jo agreed to talk with Tori on camera. Why? Who knows.

Back in 2006, Tori famously poached Dean from Mary Jo. It’s not like he was “stolen” though. Dude was perfectly willing to cheat on his lovely wife. Mary Jo and Dean had a son together, and that didn’t matter to him either. Now Mary Jo has come face-to-face with Tori during a taped lunch meeting. They discuss Dean and his wandering wang. Tori comes off looking like an idiot compared to the poised Mary Jo:

Tori: “You painted a pretty accurate portrait of him. You did tell me, ‘This is what I know in my relationship.’ And it all became true in my own relationship. You can say, ‘I told you so.’”

Mary Jo: [laughs] “I know that your personality … how you present youself to people. I know that there’s more kickass to your personality. Because I see things you do, and you’re successful, and you’re driven. I want to say ‘ballbreaker,’ but I don’t know if I could say that. I think you’ve got that in your spirit. I was always reconciling these two sides of your personality.”

Tori: “Hmm.”

Mary Jo: “I don’t hate Dean. I mean, he’s a total knob. I know that. But he’s your knob now. So many people came up to me and said, ‘Don’t you feel great? It’s karma. Isn’t that a fantastic feeling?’ And I was like, “Nooo. It’s actually really horrible. It’s not a great feeling. They have four children.’ What does it mean at the end of the day? Nothing. It doesn’t make me feel any better. I actually have this letter that he wrote me right before he met you.”

[Tori reads romantic letter and pretends to be shocked.]

Tori: “If there had been no me, what would have happened?”

Mary Jo: “There would have been somebody else.”

Tori: “Why?”

Mary Jo: “I think he was really determined.”

Tori: “When you say determined, are you insinuating that he went after me because of who I was?”

Mary Jo: “I don’t know.”

Tori: “Because he ended up with nothing because my dad ddin’t leave me with anything, so it has nothing to do with that. If that’s what he was looking for, a free ticket, like it didn’t work out.”

[From Lifetime - True Tori]

This conversation is difficult to parse because Tori has lied so much during her build-up to this show and during its execution. She’s so wrapped up in covering her lies that she can’t stop lying. I think Mary Jo does a good job of alluding to Tori’s split personality. She plays it off like she’s a simpering, wounded mother of four who sacrifices her dignity to keep the family intact. But really, Tori is not a nice person at all, and she’s only thinking of how to make money.

Here’s the clip. I still believe the “Emily Goodhand” scandal was fabricated for controversy. Whether or not Dean is still cheating, Tori is in the same situation. She’s shackled herself to a total loser.

Duchess Kate canceled another appearance, then scheduled an event for Oct. 21

wenn21296239

A few days ago, Duchess Kate allegedly had to cancel another appearance. Just like last week, she apparently waited until the last minute and she didn’t send any kind of surrogate. Unlike last week, she didn’t make any kind of statement. The appearance was for Sir Ben Ainslie’s America’s Cup thing. She was supposed to make an appearance at the new headquarters in Old Portsmouth. The new facility will bring 90 jobs to the community. It was the kind of event that could have easily been promoted by another member of the royal family, but Team Kate continued their on-going commitment to terrible staff work. So, I wonder what’s going to happen with this latest event, which was just announced yesterday?

Princess Kate is set to return to public duties. Kate and husband William are scheduled to help welcome the President of Singapore Tony Tan Keng Yam to London on behalf of Queen Elizabeth later this month. The expectant mom has not been seen in public since the Sept. 8 announcement of her pregnancy and she became ill with severe pregnancy sickness, hyperemesis gravidarum.

Mindful of Kate’s ongoing struggle with the effects of her current condition, a palace source tells PEOPLE that Kate “very much hopes to be able to undertake this engagement, but as with all recent engagements her attendance will be reviewed closer to the time, depending on her health.”

The President of Singapore event is set for Oct. 21 at London’s Royal Garden Hotel – a short distance from Kate and William’s Kensington Palace home. The couple will then travel with President and Mrs. Tan to the Horse Guards Parade, where the visiting dignitary will receive a ceremonial welcome. Kate and William visited Singapore during their 2012 tour to help celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

[From People]

If she’s too sick, they need to stop scheduling stuff for her to do, only to cancel at the last minute without sending a surrogate. If she too sick to stay at Kensington Palace, then what does it matter if this event is within walking distance from KP? I’m not saying that to “hate” on Kate – at this point, I’m just sort of disgusted by her staffers, schedulers and office people. It’s like they’re setting her up to fail…?

A few more pieces of royal info – Australian media outlets had totaled up the costs of William and Kate’s Australian tour (not even factoring in the cost of the New Zealand leg), and the tour cost Australian taxpayers $474, 582, mostly for protection officers and transportation.

And finally, Will and Kate were made honorary lifetime members of the Marylebone Cricket Club, one of the most prestigious cricket clubs in all of England.
