Hilary Duff is pregnant—which is awesome. [My inner-Cathy disagrees! — Editor] However, her pregnancy might have cost her a plum role in an indie flick. Hilary had been set to play bankrobber Bonnie Parker in “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” a re-imagining of the classic outlaw tale. This would have been a big deal, considering that the role was played by heavy-hitter Faye Dunaway in 1967. However, the makers of the new version say they are recasting, suspiciously close to when Hilary announced that she is preggers. A source with the film said, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Ouch. [Jezebel]

Hollywood these days is all about positioning and spin, and—what can we say?— it’s made us more than a little jaded. In this new column, we will share some of our most out-there theories about what’s really going on in the celeb-u-verse. Now, keep in mind that none of this is based on fact or even on the testimony of anonymous sources. They are purely hunches, and we could be totally and completely wrong. That said, we would not be super surprised if, some day, it came out that a few of our theories were right.
Ever since January Jones announced her pregnancy in late-April, without naming the child’s father, the internet and gossip rags have been in a tizzy trying to figure out whose seed implanted itself in her fertile womb. No worries, Us Weekly, Perez Hilton, et. al., I’ve got it figured out. Keep reading »
Last night, a super pregnant Kate Hudson sat down with David Letterman to talk about her new movie “Something Borrowed,” her new engagement to Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, and the fact that she’ll be giving birth for the second time in just a few weeks. “I don’t feel prepared. I can’t believe how fast it’s gone,” she said. “I might be one of those who is sitting in the hospital, staring, going ‘I don’t know what to name my child!’”
But the best part of the interview was when she talked about Matthew. Keep reading »
A week ago, when Mariah Carey appeared naked on the cover of Life & Style showing off her mondo pregnant-with-twins belly, she said, “I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience.” Hubby Nick Cannon revealed that he was having regrets about doing the photo shoot, too. “My children are going to have to see these pictures,” he said. “It’s a little weird. It’s a little nasty. I mean, have you ever seen your parents naked? When they get older and their friends come over they will see the pictures and say, ‘Your daddy’s butt naked.’” It seemed strange at the time, because the image showed Mariah solo, but now that I see this cover of OK! Magazine in the UK, I get it. It takes things to totally new heights with Nick standing behind Mariah, nuzzling her ear, and holding her bazangas. All I have to say is: No!

And finally, we are starting to get some answers on which famous ladies are actually pregnant and which just made unfortunate wardrobe decisions involving loose-fitting tops. Yesterday, Alicia Keys announced that—yep—she is in fact preggers. And today, Radar Online has a source that says Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are indeed having a babe. For Mariah, the speculation began when she (a) plumped up, which many thought could be a sign she was trying hormone therapy for in vitro fertilization, (b) said at an awards show, “Something else very special is on the way!” and (c) dropped out of Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide.” When Radar called Mariah’s rep for confirmation, instead of denying the pregnancy, she said, “I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time.” Sketchy. But we are very excited for the adorable couple and are happy Mariah is joining the proud camp of hot Hollywood mamas over 40. [Radar]
