40-year-old Kelly Chen is currently seven months pregnant. However, her body has not gone through major changes, sparking rumours that the actress might be undergoing a dieting regime despite being pregnant.

The actress, who has always been very self-conscious of her looks, now sports a small baby bump that appears as if she’s four months pregnant when in reality, she is seven months pregnant.

During the pregnancy of her first son, Chace Lau, in July 2009, Kelly had requested for a nutritionist to design a healthy low-fat pregnancy diet for her.

Now pregnant with her second son, nicknamed “Little Bun”, the actress was said to have hired the same nutritionist for her meals.

According to Hong Kong reports, Kelly diet is a low-fat and highly nutritious one which consist of milk, steam fish, vegetables, and eggs.

On the other hand, she was also instructed to stay away from tonics such as bird nest and fish maw.

Even though her small baby bump might be a cause of worry, insider sources from the Hong Kong tabloid suggested that it was part of Kelly’s intention, as “she is worried about getting fat”.

“Sometimes she (Kelly) would not drink milk, or cut her five-meal intake into three meals a day, this is why her baby is still very small in size,” a source commented.

Rodney King Ordered Into Sobriety Program

Rodney King

Rodney King, whose videotaped beating by police led to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor reckless driving in connection with his arrest in Moreno Valley last summer on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Under a plea agreement, King was sentenced to 20 days home detention and ordered to wear an ankle bracelet to monitor his movement. Authorities agreed to drop two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, although King was fined $500, ordered to complete a nine-month sobriety education program and placed on three years probation, according to John Hall, spokesman for the Riverside County district attorney.

King entered his plea through a court appointed public defender and was not present during the hearing.

In July, King was driving a 1994 Mitsubishi when he was pulled over by a traffic officer in Moreno Valley, about 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Following his July arrest, King told CNN he was under the influence of a “medical marijuana prescription” but denied driving while intoxicated.

According to Riverside County prosecutors, King’s blood alcohol reading was 0.06 percent, which is below the 0.08 legal limit in California.

“He was driving while intoxicated and found to have a measurable amount of alcohol in his system. However, we believe we would have been unable to prove beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury that his blood-alcohol content was 0.08 percent or higher,” Hall said. King did not respond to calls for comment.

King’s 1991 beating by Los Angeles police officers after a traffic stop left him with skull fractures and brain and kidney damage. It was captured on video by a nearby resident, and four officers were indicted as a result. Their trial the following year led to three acquittals and a mistrial in the predominantly white suburb of Simi Valley, verdicts that set off three days of riots in African-American neighborhoods.

By the time it was over, 55 people were dead, more than 2,000 were hurt, and property damage exceeded $1 billion. Two of the officers were later convicted of federal civil rights charges, and King won $3.8 million in damages from the city in a civil suit.

King was on parole for robbery at the time of the beating and has had several run-ins with the law in the ensuing years. He served a 90-day jail term in 1996 for a hit-and-run involving his wife at the time, and he pleaded guilty in 2004 to reckless driving and driving under the influence of a controlled substance.

In March, he was cited for driving without a license after being pulled over in Arcadia, California.

In a 2011 CNN documentary, King spoke to CNN’s Don Lemon about his struggle with alcohol abuse. “I’ll always have an issue when it comes to alcohol. My dad was an alcoholic, the addiction part is in my blood,” King said. “What I’ve learned to do is to arrest my addiction. Arrest it myself, so I don’t get arrested.”

It’s a boy for Jennifer Garner and Ben  Affleck!

The couple of seven years welcomed their third child, a baby boy, in Santa  Monica, Calif., a source confirms to Us  Weekly.

 

Garner and Affleck’s new little one joins older daughters Violet, 6, and  Seraphina, 3.

Announcing her pregnancy in August 2011, Garner, 39, managed to stay mum on  the gender of her family’s third baby, and while she admitted she’d be thrilled  to have another girl, said Affleck was excited either way.

 

“I would have thought [he wanted a boy]. At first…I really thought so,” the Arthur actress told Jay Leno in January. “And then  [Ben] kind of said, ‘Well, we have girls. We know how to do girls. My girls love  me. I’m the big guy in the house.’ So, now I’m not sure.”

Garner’s older daughters had quite a ball acting as a focus group for  potential baby names for their brother.

The actress joked she and Affleck entertained their suggestions for baby  names — most of which happen to be Disney-themed. “[They suggested] Donald  Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck,” Garner joked. “And then they moved on…[to] Peter  Pan, Captain Hook, Smee.”

A rep for Garner did not return requests for comment.

Korean singer-music producer Tony An, best known for being part of Korea’s legendary first-generation boy band, H.O.T, will be returning to his roots as a performer and will become a member of the idol group, Smash, reported Korean media.
An’s earlier tweet in January, which hinted at the possibility of him working together in a new group “for the first time in eight years”, sparked speculation among his fans that H.O.T would be re-uniting.
But it appears his fans have got it all wrong.
An is currently working as the main producer of Smash’s new album, and will be joining the sextet during their promotional activities, after the album drops in March.
Created by An, Smash made their debut under An’s entertainment company TN Entertainment in 2008.

J Lo’s nipple took to Twitter even more quickly than Jolie’s leg: according to time stamps on @JLosNipple—subhead: “Did you see me?”—and the Oscars running order, the nipple tweeted within minutes of being allegedly exposed.

“J Lo’s not to blame, I couldn’t breathe,” said one of its first tweets, accompanied by a picture of the alleged wardrobe malfunction—which, it must be said, was less clear-cut than Jolie’s deliberate fashion statement.

James Spader

James Spader is clocking out of The Office  early.

After one season filling the void left by Steve Carell as  Dunder Mifflin CEO Robert California, Spader, 52, has requested to be released  from his contract, Variety confirms.

“James always wanted this to be a one-year arc, and he now leaves us having  created one of the most enigmatic and dynamic characters in television,” The  Office‘s executive producer Paul Lieberstein told Variety in a statement Monday. “He’s been a great friend to me and the  show, helping us successfully transition into the post-Michael Scott years, and  I’m grateful for that.”

Joining the NBC primetime comedy at the tail end of season 7, Emmy winner  Spader was first introduced as a possible new branch manager replacing Carell’s  Michael Scott. His major arc picked up in season 8, when he signed on for a  minimum of 15 episodes.

News of Spader’s departure comes on the heels of a potential new spinoff for Office mainstay Rainn Wilson, who plays quirky Dwight  Schrute.

Described as a “family comedy,” Wilson’s spinoff would center around Dwight  living and working at his family’s beet farm and bed & breakfast. “A while  ago, it started to feel like a show to them,” Deadline reported in  January. “NBC agreed, [and] it’s been further developed to include multiple  generations, many cousins and neighbors. At its base it will be about a family  farm struggling to survive and a family trying to stay together.”

Whitney Houston Son Nicholas Gordon Is He In Her Will?

Blogged By: De De Tillman

Source & Full Story: CVT News – La Tray

Posted: Sunday February 26, 2012 @ 3:04 am PST

According to CVT, Whitney Houston’s secret ‘son’ is set to get a share of her £20 million fortune.

The 48-year-old singer — who died two weeks ago — took Nick Gordon into her home in Atlanta, Georgia, when he was a youngster to save him from his troubled background and while she never officially adopted him, she thought of him as her own.

Nick, 22 — who would call Whitney “Mom” — also became like a brother to the ‘I Will Always Love You’ hitmaker’s 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.

And although Whitney — who battled drink and drug addiction — blew most of her fortune, she is believed to have left £20 million and her family say Nick will get a share.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Nick was family, she loved him as much as any mother could love a child. If he is not written into her will and everything goes to Bobbi then it will only be because it was written before she took Nick into her family.

“If that’s the case, Bobbi will make sure Nick is taken care of because it’s what her mom would have wanted and he’s like a brother.”

Following Whitney’s tragic death, Nick took to his twitter page to pay tribute to her.

He wrote: “Rest in peace. Thank you for all your support. The legend will always and forever.

Rain K-Pop Icon Serves As An Entertainment Soldier

South Korean pop icon Rain will serve as an “entertainment soldier” for the remainder of his two years of compulsory military service, according to the defence ministry.

Rain will appear in television and radio programmes of the Korean Forces Network, a broadcaster run by the ministry to boost morale, and take part in weekly concert tours to military units across the country.

“As he is a singer and dancer, he will do well as an ‘entertainment soldier’,” a ministry official told AFP on Friday.

Fans from across Asia wept last October when the 29-year-old entertainer entered boot camp to start his mandatory military service.

He was said to be adjusting well to military life, being judged a top marksman and groomed to become an assistant instructor.

Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji-Hoon, is a major star in his home country and throughout much of the rest of Asia, where South Korean “K pop” commands a huge following.

All eligible South Korean men must spend about two years in the military. The country has remained technically at war with North Korea since their 1950-1953 conflict ended without a peace treaty.

Most start their spell around the age of 20. But Rain took advantage of a provision allowing famous entertainers to postpone their service.

A lot has happened in the 14 years since Brandy and Monica charmed the world with their Grammy-winning teen rivals hit “The Boy is Mine.” Now they’re back with a new duet – ”It All Belongs to Me” is out now — and are both mothers.

Brandy’s daughter Sy’rai, 9½ (dad is her ex, producer Robert Smith), has the talent to follow in Mom’s footsteps, but the singer isn’t ready to let her — yet.

“She’s into her school work and her education but singing is all she does, watching videos and making up routines,” Brandy, 33, tells PEOPLE. “I’m seeing the signs, but I want her to hold on a little longer and have a regular childhood.”

“Rodney is a drummer,” Monica, 31, explains of her eldest son (dad is her ex, rapper Rocko Hill). “He is only 6½ and is in the third grade. He wants to go to college like [my husband] Shannon and he’s serious about musical intent — he plays his drums daily and asks for lessons.”

“He asked me, ‘Can you call Travis Barker and have him come give me drum lessons?’” says Monica, who recently ran into the Blink-182 drummer at an awards show and showed him a video of her son playing during his school talent show.

As for her youngest? “My 4-year-old [Romelo] is everything from an acrobat to a soccer player. He is a live wire! He’s sociable like me, a free spirit — all over the place!” she laughs.

And with both Brandy and Monica in loving, committed relationships (Brandy’s dating music publisher Ryan Press; Monica wed NBA star Brown in November 2010, they hope to become mothers again.

“Oh yes,” says Brandy. “Absolutely,” adds Monica, who hopes for “maybe two or three” kids with her husband.

Till then, both are planning play dates at Chuck E. Cheese, hoping to hit the road together this summer and relishing their renewed friendship.

“I just feel blessed,” notes Monica, whose album New Life is out April 10. “We had to get here as people first before we could do anything musically [again] and be the artists that we are, the mothers that we are.”

Brandy, who plans to release a new record this summer, sums it up: “We are ready to sing!”

For more on Brandy and Monica’s lives now and their last moments with their friend Whitney Houston, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

Daughter Genesis is still getting used to seeing mom Viola Davis without her wigs, but the actress is covering up less and less these days, thanks to some encouragement from her husband.

Speaking to InStyle.com during a private dinner party in Los Angeles recently, Davis recounted a message from hubby Julius Tennon. “He said, ‘If you want to wear it for your career, that’s fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are,’” she said. “It’s a very powerful statement.”

Davis, who went au naturel recently for the Los Angeles Times magazine, said she’s not sure if she’ll revert back to wearing her fake hair anytime soon. “We’ll see,” she said. “I think I’ll change it up every once in a while. It gives me flavor. It makes me feel like I’m spicing up my life a bit.”

Miranda Kerr works hard to maintain her svelte figure.

The Victoria’s Secret model quickly regained her amazing body following the birth of her son, Flynn, 13 months ago but admits it wasn’t easy.

She told Haute Muse magazine: ”It’s been a lot of yoga and Pilates, and eating healthily. It does take hard work.”

The Australian beauty is known for following a strict organic diet and sticking to a rigorous fitness regime but admits she does sometimes treat herself.

She said: ”If you want to have a little indulgence every now and then, then that’s okay. Sometimes I’ll feel like some dark chocolate or sometimes I’ll feel like some French fries.”

Miranda, 28, recently revealed how important it is for women to feel good about themselves.

She said: ”I can’t feel bad about being who I am, just like the girl next to me can’t feel bad about being who she is. Because a rose can never be a sunflower, and a sunflower can never be a rose.”

”I want to encourage women to embrace their own uniqueness. Because just like a rose is beautiful, so is a sunflower, so is a peony. I mean, all flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that’s like women too.”
