Is Simpson’s wedding off?

The November date of Jessica Simpson’s planned wedding to Eric Johnson is reportedly in doubt, and while it’s thought her rumored pregnancy could be the reason, it’s just as likely indecisiveness on the bride’s part. “Everything is up in the air,” a source tells Us Weekly. “She can’t figure out what kind of day she wants. Some days she wants a big wedding in Hawaii, then other days she wants something closer to home.”

Beyonce’s super senses

Beyonce admits that her pregnancy might be driving a wedge between her and husband Jay-Z — at least where his cologne is concerned. “I smell everything,” she tells ET Canada. “If it smells bad, I smell it. My husband’s fragrance, his one that I always love, I hate right now.” And while the pop star claims to not know the sex of the baby, sources tell Us Weekly that the couple has already picked out some pink Louboutin baby booties — and a name.

Lohan has an actual fan

Lindsay Lohan scored a modeling gig showing off German designer Philipp Plein’s 2012 line, and she’s reportedly doing so well during the Lake Como, Italy, photo shoot that Plein has taken a personal interest in the actress, according to Fox News. “Lindsay has been staying in Philipp’s room every night since she arrived. There’s a lot of chemistry there,” a source says, adding that while the two have grown close, they are not an item. It’s turning out well, considering she almost didn’t get the job. “It took two months of various negotiations.”
