Ashlee Simpson expecting

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have confirmed they are expecting their first child.

The couple - who married at Ashlee's parents' Los Angeles house on May 17 - wanted to wait until Ashlee had safely gone past her first trimester, three months, before announcing the happy news.

They wrote on Pete's website "While many have speculated about this, we wanted to wait until after the first trimester to officially confirm we are expecting our first child.

"This is truly the most joyous time in our lives and we are excited to share the happy news and start our family."

Meanwhile, Ashlee is set to officially change her surname in honour of her new husband.

The 23-year-old singer will be known to family and friends as Ashlee Wentz and professionally as Ashlee Simpson-Wentz.

She said: "I think it's something a woman should do when they're marrying a man. It's a tradition, and I think it's a great tradition."

Fall Out Boy rocker Pete, 28, insists he would never pressurise Ashlee to change her name, but was thrilled with the decision.

He told People magazine: "These decisions with Ashlee and her name are all completely up to Ashlee. I want her to do these kinds of things the way she wants to do them.

"But I was flattered. I was like, 'Upgrade me!' You know what I'm saying? The Wentz family, our Christmas card just got upgraded! It feels insane. It feels unreal."

The couple's baby is expected this autumn.

Tori Spelling's Hills homecoming

Tori Spelling is to star in the 'Beverly Hills 90210' spin-off.

The actress will reprise her role as Donna Martin in the new series, alongside former co-star Jennie Garth who is returning as Kelly Taylor.

She said: "Donna Martin was such a huge part of my life. It's going to be so fun to work with Jennie Garth again and see where Donna is today. When they say you can't go home again, it's not true. I'm headed back to the zip code I know best and couldn't be happier!"

When asked about her character's role in the new show, Tori added: "Donna loved designing and wanted a career in fashion. It'll be fun to explore that storyline. And, I'm sure fans will be dying to know if she's still married to David!"

A spokesperson for the show revealed: "Donna Martin will be the owner of one of the coolest stores in Beverly Hills, a shopping hot spot that is frequented by the new cast of characters."

The original show was created by Tori's late father, Aaron Spelling. The hit series ran for ten years until 2000, and Tori recently insisted her dad would have loved to see her in the spin-off.

She said: "I would love to be a part of it. I think it's a really good idea. '90210' was really the first of its kind, the first teen drama. It kind of laid the way for other shows like 'Dawson's Creek' and 'The O.C.'

"Who would I play? I would play the sexy mom obviously! Every teen drama has a hot mom - a stepmother, of course, because I couldn't possibly have a teenage daughter!"

The season finale saw Tori's character, Donna, marry long-term boyfriend David Silver, played by Brian Austin Green.

Madonna is joining forces with Mike Tyson for a charity campaign.

The pop superstar and the former boxing champion will fly to Malawi, Africa, together to promote awareness of children with HIV and AIDS after meeting at the Cannes Film Festival in France, where they are each promoting their documentary films.

A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Madonna thinks Mike is amazing and asked if she could have a private screening of his documentary 'Tyson' while she was in the Riviera.

"Mike agreed immediately and offered to do a favour in return. He has promised to fly with her to Malawi this summer to promote awareness of children with AIDS there."

Tyson's biographical feature 'Tyson' documents his colourful past including his drug-taking, the infamous moment when he bit off part of opponent Evander Holyfield's ear during a bout and his incarceration for the rape of a beauty queen, an allegation he has always denied.

Beyonce Knowles pregnant

Beyonce Knowles is pregnant, friends have confirmed.

The 'Crazy In Love' singer - who married rapper Jay-Z in a secret ceremony last month - has reportedly been indulging in all her favourite calorific goodies since discovering she is expecting her first child.

A pal told the New York Post newspaper: "She has gained a lot of pregnancy weight. When she gains weight, she normally does the Def Jam detox, but not now."

Beyonce further fuelled speculation she is pregnant after she was spotted in New York this week sporting what appeared to be a baby bump.

A source close to the couple said: "I've heard from at least two people that Beyonce is pregnant."

Following the couple's April wedding ceremony, actress Vivica A. Fox revealed it wouldn't be long before they started a family, saying: "I wish them many, many years of happiness and some babies. I think she will be really pretty pregnant, just like Jennifer Lopez and Halle Berry."

It was claimed the couple "rushed" forward their nuptials as Beyonce was determined to tie the knot before her baby bump started to show.

Last year, Beyonce insisted she wouldn't pressurise 38-year-old Jay-Z into having children, saying: "You can't rush a man into anything whether it's a relationship, marriage or having children. When he's ready he'll let you know."

Sarah Jessica Parker and Satc Laptop and Desk

Sarah Jessica Parker had to beg curators of Washington D.C. museum The Smithsonian to return her Sex And The City character's desk and laptop, so she could use them in the forthcoming movie.

The iconic set accessories - used by Parker's journalist character Carrie Bradshaw - were donated to the museum when the hit show's run came to an end in 2004.

Parker reveals bosses at the institute were so reluctant to return them - it took a personal phone call from the star herself.

She tells, "After the series finale The Smithsonian called us to ask for the desk and laptop from the TV show. They only released it back (for use for the film) after I made several personal calls. When it was suggested I use a replica because no one would know it a replica, I said 'I will know.' We had to have that desk - as a writer, it's an extension of you.".

Brad Pitt Bad Neighbor Tag

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have hit back at claims their Hollywood neighbours are sick of the tabloid attention they have brought to their exclusive gated community.

Other residents of Los Angeles' exclusive Franklin Village are reported to be "outraged" by the photographers who now swarm around the area, desperate for a glimpse of the couple and their four children.

Website claims a number of homeowners are rallying to try and force the Pitt-Jolie family out of the neighbourhood.

But Pitt doesn't believe the reports - insisting he gets on well with his neighbours.

He tells the New York Post, "This is the first I've heard of this, which tells me it's mostly not true. I have lived and worked in the same location off and on since 1995 and have never had any problems with my neighbours, only paparazzi and those who peddle in sensationalism.".

Mischa Barton Battles with Snapper

Mischa Barton has kickstarted a bitter war of words with a paparazzo who snapped her sunbathing topless in Australia.

Barton, 22, is furious images taken by Jamie Fawcett have appeared in an Australian magazine and online. Several snaps show her topless and with cellulite on her thighs.

And the actress has accused Fawcett of disrupting her vacation with her mother Nuala on Hamilton Island, off Australia's East Coast.

She says, "He's a ridiculous human being. I've never abhorred anyone more. I was so angry, I went up to him and said how disappointed I was with his behaviour. He apologised but he was very insincere."

But Fawcett claims he warned Barton about stripping off before he had even captured her on film - and insists she could have found a private spot to seek an all-over tan.

He tells the Sydney Daily Telegraph, "We spoke to each other on the island, and that's when I showed her my camera and I hadn't taken any shots of her topless.

"I did warn her it was a public place, and if she wanted privacy she shouldn't be there.

"I'm not a perv, and I didn't intentionally mean to embarrass her. I don't just set out and start my day thinking I want to get any celebrity topless."

Barton isn't the first celebrity to clash with Fawcett; in 2005 he was accused by a newspaper of planting listening devices in Nicole Kidman's Sydney home.

In February this year (08) he lost a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper, after Kidman told a court she feared for her life after being pursued by him - and was forced to employ round-the-clock security for her and her family as a result.

Mariah Carey Weds At Her Home In The Bahamas....

Mariah Carey wed actor/rapper Nick Cannon at her home in the Bahamas, according to the latest reports swirling around the couple's shock marriage.

Carey and Cannon staged a spontaneous marriage ceremony earlier this week (beg28Apr08) after dating for just a month.

New York gossip columnist Paula Froelich, who broke the wedding story, claims Carey refused to sign a pre-nuptial agreement before marrying for a second time.

She adds that so few people were at the ceremony that "you could probably count them on two hands.".

Almost 24 hours after the news broke, both Carey and Cannon's representatives are still refusing to comments about the wedding rumours.
