*See our update below* In "good things happen to worthy people" news, it seems that Giuliana Rancic and her husband, Bill, are finally expecting a baby! This week on "Today" she announced that she is expecting. "We are so thrilled that our prayers have been answered", Giuliana tells E! News.
This long-awaited baby is due in late summer through a gestational surrogate, meaning that Giuliana and Bill are the genetic parents. Although they know the child's gender, they are "seeing how long we can keep it secret," Giuliana told "Today."
After undergoing years of fertility issues, a miscarriage and a double mastectomy just a couple of months ago, we couldn't be happier for them!
In "reality show news," yet another reality show contestant is stirring up controversy by a statement she made on her show. Apparently on "Survivor" Wednesday night, special education teacher Alicia Rosa insults – wait for it – her special education students, right to the camera! As you can imagine parents are outraged. When asked about another contestant, this"teacher" said, "Christina's IQ is probably a zero…I don't know if that even exists. I mean, I'm a special ed teacher, so uh, I handle Christina as one of my students. And she's gonna do whatever we tell her to do."
The good news is that she did say it – at least we know who not to hire!
If you need any more reason to dislike the Kardashians, did you know how much they are getting paid for their show "Keeping up with the Kardashians"? 40 million dollars. Yes, you read that right. With that kind of money added to their already incredible empire, I wonder why Kim wants to be mayor of Glendale? And speaking of Kardashian politics...
Kim is invited to the White House Correspondents Dinner this Saturday night, and will be sitting at a table with Lindsey Lohan. Apparently the two are buds. But my question is why, why, why? Why are these two invited over people like, well, almost anyone who is likely to know what branch of government the White House belongs to. I think if they can answer something as simple as how old do you have to be to be President or how long is your term, then maybe they can get an invite. No fair. (Yes, I am jealous.)
In "hurry up and have that baby news," Jessica Simpson still hasn't. According to her "sources," she'll be having the baby "this month”. That leaves three more days, right? Which means our staff will have to be on call throughout the weekend. So we will be cancelling all plans for the weekend so that we can stay vigilant for this ever so important news!
*UPDATE*: Jessica Simpson gave birth to a baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson, in L.A. this morning, according to Us Weekly! She wrote on her website, "Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby Maxwell Drew Johnson 9 lbs. 13 oz. 21 3/4. We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!"
We send congratulations to the new family!
Finally, in "wow news," Suri Cruise stepped out this week with her mom, looking very cute. She was wearing clothes instead of pajamas and was not being held. She even actually walked. Also, Mason Kardashian Disick stepped out with mom with a water bottle that, because he was wearing it, everyone needs to run out to Toys R Us to get.
Until next week!
