The Word: Blake Lively already capitalizing on her pregnancy

LivelyBump

Blake Lively is pregnant, and she announced it by … trying to hock some maternity wear on her lifestyle Web site, Preserve. How delightful. Instead of officially acknowledging Lively's incubation in any direct manner, the site instead includes a photo of the former "Gossip Girl" star cradling her baby bump along with a lengthy explanation of how the fledging online outlet has been missing out on a lucrative market segment. "We have something for men, for women, for the old, but we realized we don't have anything for the new," the Preserve editors write. "With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all — to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; the creation of family." Naturally, the two items Lively is wearing in the photo are available for sale on the site.

This will be the first baby and marketing tool for Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds, who met while filming "the Green Lantern" and tied the knot in 2011. As the site's lengthy post says, "Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there." We can only assume that includes Lively. Now, can someone point out which products on the site are "for the old"? Because this I've got to see.

Leave Justin Theroux alone!


Speaking of family planning, Justin Theroux really doesn't appreciate all the pressure everyone's putting on him and Jennifer Aniston to tie the knot and have a family. While he tells Australia's TV Week that he couldn't be happier "personally and professionally," the constant nagging from the press is getting a bit much. "I am not going to let a tabloid tell me what to do," he says. "I'm not going to watch them tap their watch. What the hell are you telling me to do?" Honestly, Justin, it's pretty obvious what they're telling you to do, and it doesn't sound like such a chore, really. "We're just doing our own thing," he adds. "We're completely happy, obviously, but we're not on anyone else's time-frame." Well, if you change you mind, Blake Lively has some really lovely baby clothes and maternity wear to sell you.


Bieber trolls Instagram once again


BieberInstagram

Never let it be said Justin Bieber isn't a show-off. And this week he's apparently showing off that his on-again, off-again relationship with Selena Gomez is very much on again — or at least her relationship with his shoulder tattoos. Bieber posted — then quickly deleted — a selfie to Instagram of Gomez cuddling up behind him, smooching his upper arm while he offers his usual eyebrow-raised, open-mouth confused tough guy look that always makes me think of Corey Haim. The photo was maddeningly free of caption or context, but they seem happy. In related news, according to comments on the photo, the reigning celebrity couple nickname for the pair is "Jelena," but I honestly would've gone with "Gober."


Keanu Reeves apparently not a fan of uninvited guests


Keanu Reeves hopefully won't have to worry about Kerry Colen Raus, the woman who was caught trespassing at his home last month — for a little while, at least. The "Matrix" star has received a temporary restraining order against her, according to TMZ. The temporary order could be extended after a review hearing on Oct. 22. Raus was arrested in September after she took a dip in Reeves' pool followed by a shower in his house. She is currently in a psychiatric facility.

"Breaking Bad" fans, rejoice.
