Kelly Rowland needs to zip it

Rumors have been circulating that Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting a baby girl, and it looks like Beyonce’s former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland just confirmed them. “I think she’ll be very well behaved. Her parents will make sure of that,” she said when asked about the baby, who is due in February, according to Hollyscoop.

How things stand between Stewart and Pattinson

Dating “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart reportedly has Robert Pattinson constantly on edge and “desperate for affection,” according to Us Weekly. “He is always worried about her leaving him,” a source says. “She will blow him off, and it makes him crazy.” But another source isn’t worried about the fate of their relationship, chalking it up to 21-year-old Stewart’s youth: “Don’t all people her age play games?”

Lohan delays jail stint for Playboy

Lindsay Lohan was reportedly granted permission to delay her next jail stint by a week so she could finish up her work posing for Playboy magazine — which is good because the people at Playboy weren’t happy with the first set of photos, according to Radar Online. “Lindsay was told that the Playboy executives wanted to go another direction with her shoot so they asked her to come back for a second time,” a source says. “The first pictures of Lindsay weren’t exactly what they wanted so they have a new theme that they want to shoot.” Lohan will reportedly pose again this week starting Tuesday, and she’s scheduled to grace the cover of the magazine’s January issue.
