14Bumpin’ – Is it a Girl?

Jessica Alba shopping at The Rug Company

Here’s Jessica Alba today outside a fine establishment called The Rug Company. I don’t think that’s a double entendre out of the photags who caption these things but you never know.

In other Alba news she held a baby shower yesterday at the Ever After Teahouse in Studio City. Her sister (Jaime King) and Rashida Jones (Jim’s other girlfriend on The Office) were in attendance.

The Menu?

  • Skewers of tiger shrimp and chicken
  • Mini doughnuts
  • Cupcakes
  • Strawberries dipped in white and dark chocolate
  • White wine
  • Lemonade
  • Iced coffee
  • Milkshakes

Man, take it easy on the sugar over there kids.

The only other development was this little nugget:

While most of the gifts were in yellow or green, Jessica reportedly told guests she is expecting a baby girl…. Jessica and Cash are rumoured to be naming their daughter Honor Warren.

Hmmm. Honor? For a girl? I’m skeptical. But I like when the Brits/Kiwis/Aussies throw in that extra O in rumour. Much more civilised.

8Kate Hudson Not a Streetwalker… Yet.

Kate Hudson in Bride Wars

I know what you’re thinking. Wait, has Kate Hudson’s career gone that bad? No, not yet. She’s just filming a new movie called Bride Wars. Evidently Anne Hathaway (human ghost) is in it too so I’m sure it will be delightful. Here’s another one:

Kate Hudson in Bride Wars

You can tell in both she’s acting her ass off. I also think it’s safe to say we’ve provided you with your desktop image for the week.

8Doherty Gets 14 Weeks

Pete Doherty of Babyshambles performs at Evening News Arena on November 22, 2007 in Manchester, England.

I don’t care about this fella at all but perhaps you do:

LONDON, England (AP) — Rock musician Pete Doherty has been sentenced to 14 weeks in jail for violating a probation order…. Parlophone Records did not say how Doherty broke his probation. But music magazine NME cited a court spokesman as saying Doherty had used different kinds of drugs, breached “time keeping,” and generally not complied with his probation.

“Generally not complied” carries a lot of weight, right? I also like that he tried different sorts of drugs. They say variety is the spice of life and such.

9Band Getting Back Together That Only I Care About

Does anyone besides me remember STP? Stone Temple Pilots?

Here – maybe this will help:

They also did an odd video with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Then they broke up. Then Scott Wieland did enough drugs to kill a fleet of yaks (wait, actually that was probably when they were together too). THEN he joined Velvet Revolver for around five years. They kicked him outta tha band for drug use. We know how that goes.

But now they are BACK TOGETHER!

I think I would pay to see them. Which is odd, because I never leave my house unless the warden asks nicely. They’re going to be on the Jimmy Kimmel Show on May 1st and Scott Wieland promises more to come:

“The story’s not finished,” Weiland told The Associated Press. “There’s more to be revealed and more to be told.”

In this case “more to be revealed” means the cities they will be playing and the news that Weiland needs to head to rehab real quick-like beforehand.

3Patrick Swayze Getting Better?

Patrick Swayze Recovering?

Looks like P-Swayz is responding well to treatments. From his physician, Dr. George Fisher:

“Patrick Swayze continues to respond well to his treatment for pancreatic cancer. Because of his excellent response, he will continue the same therapy at Stanford.”

Nice. We’re pulling for you Pat.
