Wednesday gossip roundup: Jessica Simpson is pregnant again
Gabriel Aubry’s efforts to have the restraining order against him lifted following a Thanksgiving brawl with ex-girlfriend Halle Berry‘s fiancé, Olivier Martinez, have failed, with a judge denying his request to dismiss the ban, according to TMZ. The order, which requires Aubry to stay at least 100 yards away from Martinez, Berry and the 4-year-old daughter Aubry shares with Berry, Nahla, is set to expire today due to a clerical error, though Berry is expected to file a request to extend the ban.
Seven months after giving birth to daughter Maxwell, Jessica Simpson is reportedly already expecting another child, according to Us Weekly. “It definitely wasn’t planned,” a source says. “But yes, Jessica is pregnant again.” This would be the second baby for Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson. A rep for Simpson has yet to comment.
Robert Pattinson may lose some fans also devoted to boy band One Direction with this one. When asked if he’d rather join the “What Makes You Beautiful” crooners or older British boy band Westlife, Pattinson says, “Westlife, definitely. Westlife are one of my favorite bands,” according to MSN. But it’s not out of any actual animosity toward to “X Factor” chart-toppers. It’s just that he’s unfamiliar with their work. “I actually don’t know any songs that One Direction have done,” he says. “I’ve just seen pictures.”
Despite being married to Carl Dean for 46 years, Dolly Parton has been dogged by rumors romantically linking her to best friend Judy Ogly for years. “Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade,” Parton says in an interview with ABC’s Nightline. We still just have a great friendship and relationship and I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we’re not romantically involved.” On the plus side, the persistent rumors did give Parton something she could bond over with Oprah Winfrey: “Like Gayle [King], her friend, Judy, my friend, they just think that you just can’t be that close to somebody,” Parton says.
“Two and a Half Men” star Angus T. Jones is doing damage control following his remarks during an interview with a Christian Web site in which he called the hit show “filth” and urged fans not to watch it. Jones released a statement this week aiming to smooth things over with his bosses and co-workers — though he pointedly didn’t take back what he said. “I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed,” Jones’ statement reads. “I never intended that.”
