Monday gossip roundup: Lady Gaga takes a vow of silence

Silence! Gaga will hear no more from you!

Lady Gaga is looking to keep her mouth shut for a while, she reveals in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. “Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time,” the pop star says. And it looks like she’s not going to be listening to a lot either: “The latest thing I do is I don’t read a damn thing,” Gaga says. “No press, no television. If my mom calls and says, ‘Did you hear about?’ I don’t want to know nothing about anything that is going on in relation to music. I shut it all off.”

With her baby due any day now, Jessica Simpson held a lavish baby shower at her home this weekend, with family and friends like sister Ashlee Simpson, Ellen Pompeo and Jessica Alba in attendance, according to Us Weekly. “It was a kid-friendly shower, with many of her friends bringing babies,” a source says. “She received tons of gifts mostly wrapped in pink gift wrap and boxes. There were several books, stuffed toys and clothes among other items.”

A little more than a month since her mom, Whitney Houston, passed away, Bobbi Kristina Brown is reportedly engaged to Nick Gordon, the man raised as a son by Houston, according to People magazine. “Yes, they are engaged, but the family is trying to coax her away from it,” a source says, while second source confirms that “Nick asked Krissi about a week ago to marry him.” Brown has been spotted sporting a diamond ring that is believed to have belonged to her mom.

Gwyneth Paltrow is taking the New York Times for task over reporting that she’d worked with a ghostwriter for “My Father’s Daughter,” a cookbook she released last year. “Love The New York Times dining section but this week’s facts need checking. No ghostwriter on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself,” Paltrow posted to Twitter in response to an article that named Julia Turshen as the book’s uncredited collaborator. The article even stated that Turshen is “writing a second cookbook with Gwyneth Paltrow after their collaboration on ‘My Father’s Daughter.’”

While her public feud with Michael Bay might have cost her a role in the last “Transformers” film, Megan Fox earned at least one new supporter: her “Friends with Kids” co-star, Chris O’Dowd. “Who wouldn’t have a fallout with [Bay]?” O’Dowd tells the Toronto Sun. “It’s one of the sexist things I’ve ever seen. She called him an a–hole. Well, he is a f—ing a–hole. She’s not the only one who has said that. Why has she been singled out?” One difference between Fox and O’Dowd, though? O’Dowd wouldn’t work with Bay in the first place. “I would never f—ing watch his films, never mind go and act in them,” he says.

After one season on the Oprah Winfrey Network, Rosie O’Donnell‘s new talk show is getting the boot, Winfrey announced. “I thank Rosie from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey. She has been an incredible partner, working to deliver the best possible show every single day,” Winfrey said in a statement. “As I have learned in the last 15 months, a new network launch is always a challenge and ratings grow over time as you continue to gather an audience. I’m grateful to Rosie and the dedicated ‘Rosie Show’ team for giving it their all.” The show’s last episode tapes today and will air March 30.
