The Word: Heather Morris is pregnant

Premiere For "Spring Breakers" - Red Carpet

It’s been a week of shake-ups for the cast of “Glee.” First, it was announced that main cast member Cory Monteith was admitted to rehab on Monday morning for a substance abuse problem and now it looks like Heather Morris, who portrays the ditzy cheerleader Brittany on the hit show, is pregnant. Us Weekly broke the news that the 26-year-old is expecting a baby with her longtime boyfriend Taylor Hubbell. “She’s a little more than three months along and starting to show,” the source tells Us Weekly. “It was totally unexpected, but they are incredibly happy and excited.” Keep her off the dance numbers, “Glee”!

LaBeouf and Baldwin: Not buds
Shia LaBeouf is looking to put the turmoil that drove him out of his Broadway debut in “Orphans” behind him, but he’s not afraid to admit that he and co-star Alec Baldwin definitely had issues. “I’m pretty passionate and impulsive, and he’s a very passionate individual as well, and I think that impulsiveness and passion make for some fireworks,” LaBeouf tells David Letterman during a visit to his talk show, adding that he and Baldwin “had tension, as men. Not as artists, but as men. In a room, that became hard to deal with.” Meanwhile, in an interview with MTV for his new film, LaBeouf says that the public has the wrong perception. “I feel like there’s a misconception of me being this angry little elf. I’m not, I’m really not,” he tells the site. You know, I used to think Wallace Shawn was Hollywood’s “angry little elf” but now that LaBeouf mentions it, he totally is.

Mrs. Carter: ‘A modern-day feminist’
Beyonce has heard what her critics have to say — particularly about her decision to name her new tour the Mrs. Carter Show — and she’s just going to ignore them. “I guess I am a modern-day feminist,” she muses to British Vogue. “Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman, and I love being a woman.” As for taking husband Jay-Z’s last name for her tour? “I feel like Mrs. Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been,” she says. “It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do. The purpose of my body became completely different.”

Beckham’s desire as a father
Despite being possibly the most famous man in the world, David Beckham is desperate for his four kids to have a normal a life as possible — even though that can be pretty tricky sometimes. “My eldest now is at the age where he wants to do things and go to places, and we have to hold him back,” Beckham tells CNN World Sport about 14-year-old Brooklyn. “You have to explain to him that there are certain things he can’t do. But to be honest, we let our children do 99 percent of the things they want to do because we want them to lead a normal life.

Bynes keeps getting crazier
If Amanda Bynes couldn’t get any crazier, she now claims there’s a redheaded woman running around New York pretending to be her. “My hair is blonde. I’ve never been a redhead! Somebody keeps posing as me! Check my photos and Twitter for up-to-date pictures,” Bynes posted to her Twitter account Tuesday night. “I don’t own those clothes and I’m blonde.” If it’s an imposter, she’s put a lot of work into it. Not only does the woman in the photos look exactly like Bynes, but she has the same cheek piercings and the manicure Bynes has been sporting recently. To add to the confusion, Bynes quickly deleted the tweets insisting she’s being impersonated.

Brown calls Bieber ‘wack,’ mentions ‘little black boys’
Chris Brown feels Justin Bieber’s pain. When asked during an interview with radio station Power 105.1 how he copes with paparazzi attention, Brown says, “It’s sort of like what Justin Bieber’s going though right now. With him, it’s just a cause of how I feel. Being young, having a limitless amount of income, whatever you want to do as a young guy, and then at the same time you don’t have nobody that’s going to say, ‘Hey bro, you look wack right now.’” Brown is particularly worried Bieber’s friends — like rapper Lil Twist — will get an undue amount of blame for any of the Canadian pop star’s troubles. “I just feel like they’re going to target the little black boys around him and say, ‘Hey, so this is why he’s doing it,’” Brown says.
