The Word: Jessica Simpson raises Nick Lachey’s baby count by one

What about Weight?Watchers?! Simpson (seen here with her fiance Eric Johnson) is reportedly three months pregnant.

Whoa. Here’s news I didn’t see coming: Jessica Simpson is pregnant, again.

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 fiance Eric Johnson. A rep for Simpson has yet to comment.

Oh man, you guys. This brings up so many questions, mainly: What was she thinking? But also: Is she taking cues from notorious quick-turnaround-breeder Tori Spelling? (Ed. note: Never, ever take life tips from Tori Spelling.) What will happen to her multimillion-dollar campaign with Weight Watchers? Because you know girlfriend isn’t going to slim down anytime soon. And does this mean we’re all going to be subjected to photos of her being gigantic yet again? As someone who has a 7-month-old at home, I’m down with pregnant ladies and have nothing but respect for them, but my Us Weekly just finally stopped running photos of her waddling around L.A. Hey, paparazzi — I think we (and probably Jessica Simpson) could use a little break. Let’s let her gestate in peace this go-round, OK?

Dolly Parton: Still not gay

Continuing on Things That Are Surprising Dorothy Today, did you all know that there are lesbian rumors surrounding Dolly Parton? It’s true! Color me John Travolta! Despite being married to Carl Dean for 46 years, the country singer continually has to swat down rumors that romantically link her to her best friend Judy Ogly. “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 [and] Judy, my friend, they just think that you just can’t be that close to somebody,” Parton says.
