Tuesday gossip roundup: Kate Middleton could be announcing her pregnancy

Kristen Stewart has reportedly signed on to star in the sequel to “Snow White and the Huntsman” — though the second film in the franchise won’t be directed by Rupert Sanders, with whom Stewart infamously had an affair this summer, according to Radar Online. “The script has already been written and production will begin late next year,” a source close to the production says. “However, Rupert Sanders definitely won’t be a part of the project. Rupert didn’t want to be a part of it to begin with because he is desperately still trying to save his marriage. The search is on for a new director.”

Justin Bieber may be newly single, but that didn’t mean he had to attend the American Music Awards solo. Instead, the 18-year-old Canadian pop star showed up with his mom, 38-year-old Pattie Mallette. While he made no mention of his split from Selena Gomez, Bieber did address his critics after winning his first award of the night, for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist. “I want to say this is for all the haters who thought I was just here for one of two years,” Bieber said from the stage. “I feel like I’m going to be here for a very long time.”

A close friend of Prince William and Kate Middelton insists the royal couple is set to announce something big next month, prompting speculation that a baby is on the way. “They’re planning to make an announcement in December,” Jessica Hay, a former schoolmate of Middleton’s and a guest at their wedding, tells New Idea magazine, adding that the Duchess of Cambridge has gained a bit of weight recently and that “William and Kate are focused on starting a family.” How focused, exactly? They’ve apparently already discussed the number of children they want to have — two — and that they’d prefer a son and then a daughter. “It seems very traditional but of course they’ll be happy with two boys or two girls. They don’t want more,” Hay says. “They’ve discussed it endlessly and don’t want to be older parents.”

As Taylor Swift‘s new album, “Red,” tears up the charts, insiders are beginning to decipher exactly which of her failed relationships different songs on it around about — and one source insists to Us Weekly that song “All Too Well” is about Swift’s time dating Jake Gyllenhaal. “It’s safe for her and it’s something she loves,” the source says of Swift’s tendency to mine past relationships for material. “She goes back to it because it’s something she’s good at — and she’s not good at love.”

As an actress and a newly single mom, Katie Holmes has a number of talents, but apparently cooking isn’t one of them. “Me in the kitchen is a comedy, but it’s heartbreaking for me going through it,” she tells Vogue. “But for others, they probably think it’s really funny, because all the pans are out and I get frustrated, and suddenly it’s burning.” We’ll assume someone else is handling the Thanksgiving meal for Holmes this year.
