Hilary Duff and Nick Cannon to Host Teen Choice Awards

Hilary Duff and Nick Cannon to Host Teen Choice Awards

Well, Hilary. Your ex-boyfriend is having a baby with his new girlfriend, who got pregnant against all anatomical odds. They’re giving exclusive interviews to Diane Sawyer. He’ll probably marry her soon.

But you, my dear, get to host the Teen Choice Awards!!! Isn’t that a fabulous consolation prize? Well, that, and, you’re not knocked up right now. Or going to jail.

Hilary and Nick Cannon were announced today as the hosts. The show will air August 26 on Fox.

Lindsay Lohan Thought to Have Her Latest Bodyguard Sign an NDA

Lindsay Lohan Bodyguard Jazman Bennett

From Page Six:

Lindsay Lohan may have one loyal person on her payroll after all – her bodyguard, Jaz. A source tells The Post’s Marianne Garvey that the troubled starlet’s ever-present guard and driver, Jazman Bennett, has been fielding offers of up to $500,000 from magazines and news outlets in the U.S. and London, but has turned down every one. He’s known for being loyal and protective – unlike Lohan’s former bodyguard, Lee Weaver, who sold her out to News of the World, saying he “lost count of the times I thought she was overdosing.”

Loyal and protective? I think it’s more likely that Lindsay learned her lesson and made this guy sign a contract ensuring he would not sell his story to the press. She can probably sue him for way more than $500K if he talks.

Paris Hilton’s Grandpa Doesn’t Hate Her After All

Rumors spread earlier this week that Paris Hilton’s grandfather, Barron Hilton, had taken the heiress out of his will after her recent jail stay, having finally had enough of her tarnishing the family name.

Not true, says the NY Post. A family rep sent the paper the following quote from the elder Hilton: “I love her very much and am proud of what she has accomplished.”

Nicole Richie: “Yeah, I’m Knocked Up”

Nicole Richie Confirms Pregnancy with Joel Madden to Diane Sawyer

During her interview with Diane Sawyer today, Nicole Richie finally confirmed that she’s pregnant.

“Yes, I am. We are. I’m almost four months,” she told Diane. “I have a responsibility and it’s something that I did wrong.”

Okay, okay, she said that last part about her recent DUI, but I just think it’s funnier if you apply it to having sex with Joel Madden. She continues to say that “if I could personally apologize to every single person that has lost a loved one from drunk driving I would. And unfortunately, I can’t, but this is my way of paying my dues and taking responsibility and being an adult.”

Whatever, Nicole, no one’s even that impressed with your antics anymore. So you popped some Vicodin and got confused about an L.A. freeway on-ramp. I do that at least daily. Lindsay Lohan fucking kidnapped people. You girls need to step up your game, stat. I’m thinking some manner of drug-smuggling ring involving single-mother, illegal immigrants. Who you kidnapped.

The interview with Diane will air on ABC on Thursday and Friday.

Sara Gilbert Looks Ready to Pop

The Roseanne star and her girlfriend, producer Allison Adler, are reportedly taking turns having babies.

The couple welcomed son Levi Hank, who Allison carried, in October 2004, and are looking forward to another addition to their family later this year.

Taking turns having babies definitely goes down in my book as one huge advantage to being a lesbian. Wouldn’t it be great if all couples could do that? Like, “No, Tom, darling, work’s really busy for me this year, and I have that trip planned with Janice in the spring, so why don’t you carry the pregnancy to term this time?”
