Kate Middleton Is Pregnant!

Prince William and Kate Middleton Visit Witton Country Park in Darwen on April 11, 2011
This time it’s actually not a rumor. St. James’s Palace officially announced yesterday that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first baby. “Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” the palace said in a statement this morning. But amid all the excitement also came the news that Kate has been admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London. No need to worry though, the Duchess is only suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum—in other words, acute morning sickness (which is said to be common among women expecting twins!). She’s expected to remain in the hospital for just a few days and will rest at home after. As a result of the hospitalization, Kate’s upcoming scheduled duties have been cancelled for the rest of the week. No doubt intending to keep this highly public news as private as possible, there was no word on whether Kate and Will are expecting a boy or girl, or a possible due date. There has been speculation though that Kate has not yet hit the 12-week mark, but was forced to announce the pregnancy owing to her hospitalization. Best wishes to the royal-parents-to-be and for a healthy pregnancy.

More American Idol Drama

More American Idol Drama 3

It seems like Nicki Minaj is having a hard time adjusting to being a new judge on American Idol. But this time Minaj’s beef isn’t with any of the current judges but rather with recently ousted judge, Steven Tyler. Minaj took to Twitter to share her less than kind thoughts about Tyler who she believes to have made a racist remark against her. In an interview with MTV, Tyler slammed the new judges on the show stating “You just have to give your opinion. It wasn’t hard for me, but I would imagine it’s hard for some people, and they need a manager to say ‘Shut the f— up, and just give them your opinion. “These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they’re in New York City, they’re scared to death; you’re not going to get the best [out of them]. If it was Bob Dylan  Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying.” Minaj’s response? “Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet. I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f–k yourself and worry about yourself babe.” Minaj later tweeted, “LOL lets make him a shirt that says “No Coloreds Allowed” then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns. When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge.” Tyler hasn’t responded to any of Nicki’s tweets and Fox had no comment on the matter.

Is Beyonce Pregnant With Baby No. 2?

Is Beyonce Pregnant With Baby No. 2

Rumors that the singing superstar is expecting her second child just 8 months after giving birth to baby Blue Ivy have been running rampant today after a report surfaced stating that B and husband Jay-Z are going to become parents for a second time. Over at Hollywood Life they have a source claiming that Beyonce is pregnant after she was spotted wearing a form-fitting leopard dress over the weekend that supposedly showed what appeared to be a burgeoning baby bump. But that doesn’t mean Beyonce has a bun in the oven.  Not only is the singer rocking a fit post-baby bod but the PR company that sent out the pic attributed the so-called bump look to the way the dress appeared in the image, nothing more. Looks like the world will just have to wait for another Beyonce or Jay-Z mini-me.
