PSYCH! Here’s Megan‘s baby bump, fashionably camouflaged underneath a dress that only Megan Fox’s most hardcore fans could appreciate:

Seriously, though, staying true to form, Megan Fox is probably the most perfect pregnant woman on the face of the earth, jokeless. But honestly, what else would you expect?

What I want to know, though, is when will this baby be born? I feel like Megan’s been pregnant for ages, but it’s really only since June that we’ve had some iron-clad evidence that Megan’s carrying (a fetus, guys, not a weapon), but she’s got to be way further along than just three or four months, right? The pregnancy rumors really began to plague Megan way back in March, so that would make her, what, five or so months along? That could be about right, right?

One way or the other, God. Doesn’t she just look amazing?

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Won’t Be Doing Twilight Conventions Anymore

Apparently things aren’t going well–at all.

Sources are saying that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have both pulled out of the upcoming final Twilight fan conventions, and while it’s hardly surprising, there’s other news attached to the announcement as well—Taylor Lautner won’t be there, either.

From Zap2It:

In a move that will surprise no one, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have opted out of attending the final four official “Twilight” conventions. The conventions are set for the weekends of August 25 (San Antonio), September 29 (Detroit), October 5 (Parsippany, NJ), and November 3 (Los Angeles).

Fans were hoping that at least one of the stars would attend the final convention in November, but Pattinson and Stewart, along with costar Taylor Lautner, have opted out of attending.

“The passion and dedication of Twilight fandom has been amazing and we’re out to throw one last giant convention, a final gathering to see old friends that have made up the Twilight family,” Creation Entertainment says. “Although Rob, Kristen and Taylor will not be with us this time out we will have a super line-up of other Twilight stars and the weekend will be filled with special events, movie prop and costume displays, contests, panels, auctions, parties, exclusive merchandise, music and much more, including some surprises!”

With fans and the media still desperately seeking a conclusive statement from Pattinson about his relationship with Stewart, many are curious as to how the “Breaking Dawn Part 2″ promotional tour will differ from previous years. Normally, in support of the film, the three leads have traveled the globe doing press appearances. This year, things may be dialed back significantly. Luckily, most promotional photoshoots for the film have already been taken care of.

I guess the only really surprising thing about the whole mess is that Taylor Lautner is going to be a no-show, too. I mean, is he, too, really all that broken up over Kristen and Robert? Or is his publicist forcing him to drop out in order to make it seem like the three main characters just aren’t attending, and it’s complete coincidence that it happens right in the middle of the Kristen-Rob drama? Because come on. We’re just not that dumb, I’m sorry.

I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again—the red carpet events and press junkets for Breaking Dawn Part 2 are going to be amazing, guys.

Quotables: Maybe Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a Slapper?

“I think this is what it is, and hopefully no one takes it wrong. His [Maksim's] way is hard. We all know about it. If a lady doesn’t like to be treated in a hard way on the dance floor with Maks, then they should tell the producer, ‘I don’t want to get in on this ride. Because I’m scared.’”

This would be Gilles Marini, one of this year’s upcoming stars on Dancing With the Stars all-stars, telling us why Hope Solo’s letting the world know that Maksim Chmerkovskiy (who is a dick and has a damned near impossible-to-type last name) is an abusive, overbearing dunce.

And now, wait. Assuming this is right and real and everything, we’re just supposed to let it be OK because Maksim‘s “way is hard”? Because it involves slapping people around and forcefully bending their physical beings into different positions and that would be why, because there’s just no other way of helping people learn to dance properly? Oh, OK. Now that you put it that way, I suppose it makes all sorts of sense.

On the real, though? First, Maks is lucky that Hope didn’t turn around and punch him in the mouth the first time he did it, because damn. I know that if it were me he decided to manhandle, his next appearance on live television would be complete with a black eye and fewer teeth.

As for the show’s producers, this kind of imposing attitude is alright because everyone knows about it? And everyone goes along with it because that’s just the way it’s always been? That’s nice, ABC networks. I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised, though—this is the network that allowed Chris Brown to perform on Good Morning America just a couple months after he beat the piss out of Rihanna, but told Adam Lambert he was too gay for their audiences.

I hope for this douche’s sake that these allegations aren’t true—and if they aren’t, then maybe someone should tell Gilles Marini that running his mouth doesn’t make him the frontrunner to win in this year’s circus of washed-up hasbeens who allow themselves to be exploited by crap television networks who SUCK.

UPDATED: Top Gun Director Tony Scott Commits Suicide

From TMZ:

Famed director Tony Scott — who directed “Top Gun” among many other major films — jumped to his death today off an L.A. bridge … this according to the L.A. County Coroner.

According to the Coroner, 68-year-old Scott — Ridley Scott’s brother — jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island around 12:30pm.

U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Jennifer Osburn said a suicide note was found in Scott’s Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge.

Scott directed such films as “Top Gun,” “Beverly Hills Cop II,” “Enemy of the State,” and “The Taking of Pelham 123.”

Authorities used sonar equipment to find Scott’s body in the port’s murky waters. His body was recovered at approximately 4:30pm … four hours after he jumped.

Too, too sad. I know it probably sounds silly and stereotypical and rather uneducated to say, but it always floors me when someone in such an advanced age would kill themselves. It’s like, you’ve lived this long, what could be so bad that you’d want to cut it short with a suicide?

RIP Tony, and condolences to the family. Man.

Update: It was confirmed that Scott suffered from an inoperable brain tumor, so I guess *that’s* why you’d kill yourself at the age of sixty-eight. TMZ also claims that there were two notes left at the scene—one was a suicide note, allegedly detailing why Tony took his own life, and another was a “contact” list of people to call so they’d know that Tony was gone.

A new report from People also claims that Tony didn’t even hesitate when he jumped:

Witnesses told authorities that at around 12:35 p.m., the filmmaker left his parked Toyota Prius on the Vincent Thomas Bridge in the city of San Pedro, scaled an 8- to 10-ft.-high fence and then leapt without hesitation.

Neve Campbell Also Has a Cute Baby

And isn’t she the most darling celebrity mommy ever? I just love when I see mothers loving on their babies, and this is no exception.

This is Neve‘s new son (and by “new,” I mean “brand-new,” as in a few weeks old), and I think Neve’s going to be a pretty good mom. She’s got a healthy grasp on who she is, and she’s also pretty grounded when it comes to being healthy and happy.

As a sidebar, do you know who *also* happens to have a little baby boy? Because it’s yours truly, and in light of his six-month birthday, here he is!:


AAH BABIES.

Rihanna Thinks Chris Brown Is The Love of Her Life

A photo of Rihanna and Chris Brown

Well, this is sad. You know that interview that Rihanna did with Oprah? Sarah showed you a few quotes about Chris Brown last week, about how after the assault she felt like she lost her best friend, and how she felt protective of him after the incident. It was a little unsettling, I thought, but the interview itself aired last night, and I’ve got tons more unsettling quotes for you.

On the state of her relationship with Chris Brown: “We’re very, very close friends. We built a trust again and that’s it. We love each other and we probably always will.”

On hanging out with Chris: “It’s awkward because I still love him…my stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me. I have to maintain that and suppress it.”

More on Chris: “I think he was the love of my life. He was my first love and I see that he loved me the same way…I truly love him—the main thing for me is he’s at peace. I’m not at peace if he’s not happy or he’s still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds that peace.”

On the aftermath of the assault: “All kinds of emotions started happening after that,” she said. “All kinds of things started making sense. I thought I hated Chris and I realized it was love that was tarnished. It looked like hate because it was ugly, it was angry, it was inflamed, it was tainted and I realized that what it was is, I have to forgive him, because I cared about him still. And the minute I let go of that, I started living again.”

Can someone tell Katy Perry to take a quick break from banging John Mayer to have a serious talk with her BFF? Because this just doesn’t sound good at all. I really don’t think that the love of your life could ever do to you what Chris Brown did to Rihanna, and it’s incredibly sad to me that she doesn’t get that.
