PHOTOS: Ashlee Simpson Strings Pete Wentz Along

I don’t want to say that I hate Ashlee Simpson, but I kind of hate Ashlee Simpson.  I don’t like the way she’s treating poor little Pete Wentz, and these here photos are doing a nice job of fueling my rage all over again.  Look at his little happy smile – he just loves his little family so much! Pete Wentz is a tragically beautiful man and Ashlee Simpson is a vicious harpy, and these pictures prove it.


Selena Gomez: Back in Hospital, Probably Not Pregnant

Man, it’s been a wild and crazy ride with Selena Gomez these past few days, huh? First there was the hospital trip on Thursday night, then the cancelled concert on Friday night, then she was fine yesterday, but now she’s back at the hospital.  But at least this time, we have a little clue as to what the problem is: blood pressure.

Sources tell us Gomez has undergone a number of tests for blood pressure issues, but so far … doctors have not been able to determine what is causing the problem.

Oh … as for the rumors going around she’s pregnant … totally untrue.

I love how they add in that bit about the pregnancy.  On the real though (do people say that, “on the real”?), I just found out on the Google that pregnancy can cause blood pressure issues, and you know the entire world would explode if a Bieber baby came into existence, so I feel like TMZ is just trying to settle everyone down.

Do you think Selena is having a tough time cooking up a Bieber baby, or does the girl just need to take a few personal days?

Quotables: What Would Deb Do If She Found Out About Dexter?

“Would I be okay with it if I found out Dexter was a serial killer? I don’t know. I’m glad it’s not up to me. I feel that that decision is in the writers’ capable hands and they will justify it, and it will be the hardest thing I’ve ever played but I look forward to doing it. Is there room for it? Certainly. My instinct today is she would put her handcuffs on him. But it changes from day to day.”

- Jennifer Carpenter discusses her character’s feelings on her beautiful serial killer of a brother.

I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely LOVE Dexter. I would say that I live for it for about 12 weeks every fall, but really I just ripped through the entire series last winter at an alarming pace.  Like I remember on New Year’s Day this year I laid in bed with my best friend and watched the last eight or nine episodes of season five – the one with Julia Stiles, the saucy minx – and that’s how I knew this year was going to be a good one.

What do you think would happen if Deb found out Dexter’s secret (and don’t try and pop in with spoilers from the books, it’s a little different)? Regardless, can you imagine the tension that’s almost guaranteed to flood the sixth season?  Do you guys care about Dexter at all?  We have a lot to talk about here, friends.
