Jessica Simpson is “actively trying” to have a baby.
The singer-and-actress is reportedly desperate to start a family with her quarterback-starring boyfriend Tony Romo after younger sister Ashlee gave birth to her first child, son Bronx Mowgli, in November.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Jessica makes an announcement that she’s pregnant very, very soon,” a source said.
*I'm telling ya, it's the only way she can stay relevant in the public eye now and even then nobody cares.....how long til she's singing in Vegas...oh wait, she already did the state fair circuit....how long til she's shillin condos?*

(also from gawker & gatecrasher)
Which talking-head gossip is sleeping with the married boss of her cable net to win more airtime? Her beau apparently found out, moved out and now they're both blabbing the tale all over the place. She is also said to be sleeping with a television actor from a popular-ish spin-off series. Hint: It's not Liz Smith.
*Chelsea Handler and this is old....it's how she got her first show on comedy central*
New Williamsburg It girl, the Nylon-'working' 19-year-old Brit tabloid smash (and washed-up rockstar daughter!) that is Peaches Geldof, has so pulled the second-oldest trick in the book:
Marrying a dude to get a green card! (The first-oldest trick is getting pregnant so he'll marry you.) Sure, it was cute when the teen impulsively wedded Max Drummey in Vegas last August, but one might think—what other problems do people with impulse-control issues have? Besides coke?
Anyway, an ill-thought-out apartment photoshoot (see: Impulse control, problems with) featuring her narrow-looking pad and her two roommates—her Harvard-educated rocker husband not one of them—was quickly pulled. Probably because her management was all, "WTF were you thinking? Call us first next time!"
And now the Brit tabloids are reporting she'll spend the holidays in Britain with her washed-up rocker dad instead of her new family unit. "It's only for four days," she told The Sun. Funny how quickly four days apart can become years.

We know that a bulk of computer users out there use Microsoft's Internet Explorer. So it's a real drag that there may be a serious security glitch in the browser.
The public is being urged to use other browsers while this flaw is being investigated and Microsoft preps an emergency patch to unravel this mess.
Everyone is at risk. This problem is quite serious as it could allow criminals to tap into your computer and steal your password -- and you know what that could lead to.
Although Microsoft has detected outbreaks against IE 7.0, others were present in all versions of the browser.
"In this case, hackers found the hole before Microsoft did," said Rick Ferguson, senior security advisor at Trend Micro. "This is never a good thing."
So far what this flaw has managed to steal are game passwords, but it's obvious what the criminals' intentions are.
While experts are encouraging and recommending users to find alternate browsers to abate security risks, Microsoft on the other hand, urge users to stay put.
"I cannot recommend people switch due to this one flaw," said John Curran, head of Microsoft UK's Windows group.
PC Pro magazine's security editor, Darien Graham-Smith, disagrees, "It's a shame Microsoft have not been able to fix this more quickly, but letting people know about this flaw was the right thing to do. If you keep flaws like this quiet, people are put at risk without knowing it."
*At your job they've probably already sent you a patch but for private users, go to microsoft.com to download it.*
Britney Spears is said to be dating Paris Hilton's former boyfriend Benji Madden.
Good Charlotte guitarist Madden, who split from Hilton last month, was introduced to Spears by her manager Larry Rudolph.
"Larry made some phone calls and Benji ended up being the most interested in being fixed up," a source told In Touch Weekly.
"They've been on a few dates. She appears to like Benji a lot, and he seems to really like her."
Rudolph reportedly decided to set Spears up with Madden after drawing up a shortlist of potential boyfriends which included Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and Gossip Girl actor Chace Crawford.
According to Page Six, Madonna met the model Jesus Luz on a photo shoot for W Magazine in Rio de Janeiro, then asked him to join her on tour in Sao Paolo. A source revealed to Page Six: "Everyone knows they're ficando - which is a Portuguese expression that means they are kissing and doing other things but without any obligation of being faithful or getting into a relationship afterwards."
