The fledging romance between Taylor Swift and One Direction star Harry Styles appears to be heating up pretty quickly, if they’re latest rendezvous are any indication. Styles was spotted trying to sneak into the New York City hotel where Swift is staying, an overnight bag over his shoulder, according to Hollyscoop. That’s the second night in a row the young music stars have spent together at the hotel this week.

It’s going to be a summer baby for Kate Middleton, according to Life & Style. “She’s due in July, which is a month full of significance for William,” a source says. “His mother, Diana, was born on July 1, and his parents got married on July 29.” As for who the godparents will be for the new prince or princess? Signs are pointing to Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton, according to ABC News. “Kate is very close to her sister, Pippa, and William is infinitely, in the same way, close to Prince Harry. So they are the obvious choice,” royal contributor Victoria Arbiter Brown says. “They were the best man and the chief bridesmaid at their wedding, they’re well-trusted, they’re family.”

Enough time has apparently passed for Jennifer Lopez to open up about the demise of her marriage to Marc Anthony. “I was going through a divorce and the breakup of a family, which was devastating to me because family means everything to me,” Lopez tells Hollywood Life of the breakup in July 2011. “I didn’t want to be the woman who stayed in bed for two months. I did do that a little, but I knew I had to get through it.”

Despite announcing in October that they’d separated, Danny DeVito and Rhea Pearlman aren’t actually all that separated — at least according to DeVito. When asked by Extra how he’s adjusting to life as a single man, DeVito says, “It’s not something you adjust to. Rhea and I are really close. Actually still together, just separate, but together.” In fact, DeVito insists divorce may not be in the cards for the “Cheers” alums. “We’re working on it,” he says when asked if a reconciliation might be on the way.

The recent hubbub over Angus T. Jones urging fans to stop watching his hit sitcom, “Two and a Half Men,” and calling the show “filth” was apparently nothing the folks at CBS couldn’t handle, at least according to network head Les Moonves. “I don’t think [the Angus situation has] quite been resolved, but after going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it’s been a piece of cake,” Moonves says in a statement to TMZ.
