Designer Kimora Lee Simmons, 33, and actor/model Djimon Honsou, 44, might be getting married. Yes, it's unclear. Kimora, who has kept the surname of famous ex, mogul Russell Simmons, was asked at a recent Cartier event if she was engaged she said "kind of." When reporters pried as to whether Honsou had given her an engagement ring, Simmons response was, "Well, kind of, not quite." Huh? Did you buy the ring for yourself? Does this dude want to marry you? We understand keeping your private life private, but next time just say "no comment"-these vague answers are making you look bad!
Would you settle for a "kind of" marriage proposal? [People]

Dave Hogan/Getty ImagesIt's not that we don't like Madonna-sure, we'll even admit to humming along to her crappy single, "4 Minutes," whenever that shampoo commercial comes on. It's just… unlike Madge, who often publicly renounces her previous incarnations, we miss the Madonna of yesteryear. So sue us. That said, we couldn't be more excited at the glimpse of the set list for her upcoming tour: "Heartbeat," "Everybody," "Borderline," "Open Your Heart," "Vogue," "Who's That Girl," "La Isla Bonita," "Dress You Up," "Holiday"… holy cow.
We need to cop tickets immediately! Looks like there's no time like the present to see the Queen of Pop. [Perez]

Word is Jamie Lynn Spears will be in labor tomorrow and doctors are preparing her for a C-section due to complications in the pregnancy. We wish Jamie Lynn a very healthy delivery-whether baby daddy Casey is present or not. Speaking of, despite the fact they are no longer a couple, the parents are planning to go with baby naming family tradition. Jamie and Lynne Spears produced Jamie Lynn, now Jamie Lynn and Casey are also considering combo-names their newborn daughter: either Cailynn or Cassie. Hey, it could be worse! Miller Lyte McConaughey, anyone? [Perez]

There's no hiding anything from your kids, hence Madonna's daughter Lourdes asking is she was a lesbian upon seeing her kiss a woman on stage. Ivanka Trump says when her and brothers Donald Jr. and Eric were children, they'd read the gory details of their parents' divorce from gossip columns. She even found out about The Donald's divorce that way! The worst headline she recalls: "Marla Boasts to Pals about Donald: BEST SEX I EVER HAD." Luckily Ivanka has a good head on her shoulders and is extremely hardworking like her dad. "I'm not the type to be eating bonbons all day. I just can't imagine anything worse than spending my day figuring out what I was going to wear that night."

Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesMatthew McConaughey's Brazilian girlfriend, Camila Alves, may be due to give birth any minute, but that won't keep a man from partying! The star recently went to Nicaragua to surf, but ended up partying at a bar called the Iguana, flirting with women, dancing, and eventuall standing on a table "screaming in broken Spanish, 'I've lost my flip-flops,'" according to one female bar patron. He was later spotted "resting" in a ditch. While Matthew denying flirting with the ladies, he can't hide how wasted he was. "Drunk?" he told the NY Daily News via e-mail. "Absolutely. Nicaragua is a beautiful place, epic waves, the best surfing I have ever been on. And yes, I'm STILL looking for my left flip-flop. So if anyone finds it floating around down there (it has 6:22 stitched into the side), please send it my way. There is a reward."Read More »from Matthew McConaughey parties on despite pregnant girlfriend

Stephen Lovekin/Getty ImagesSome stars try their best to avoid paparazzi and signing autographs for their fans. Not Bruce Willis! This past Sunday the Die Hard actor was having brunch with his girlfriend Emma Heming at P.J. Clarke's when he told his waiter he looked a lot like his buddy, Tom Hanks. "The waiter at one point said, 'You think I look like Tom - well, I think you look like Bruce Willis, so yippie kai-yay!' Willis then told him, 'I am Bruce Willis.'" To prove himself, Willis brought ex-wife Demi Moore and daughter Tallulah back to the restaurant for dinner. Aw Bruce, net time we're sure they'll just take your word for it. [NY Post]

Ethan Miller/Getty ImagesAfter a string of good, careful decisions, Britney is right on track as her father intends to sell her fancy Studio City home. For now her and papa Spears are ready to aid sis Jamie Lynn in her pregnancy and will be jetting down to Louisiana ASAP. And then? "Having more privacy and wide open spaces for her to raise her boys has been a goal for some time," says an insider.
We'd have to agree a new, more appropriate house sounds great-her home has been the site of many a bad paparazzi photo (remember earlier this year when she was taken to a psychiatric hospital via ambulance?) Keep up the good moves, Brit. Focusing on family was never a bad thing. [People]

Diddy, or, um, we mean, Puff Daddy, has a very elaborate two-hour beauty regimen before going out for the night. Not that we'd expect anything less… but we did get a laugh out of the details. "While I'm getting ready I like to relax with a drink - vodka and lemonade - and listen to some James Brown," says Diddy. "Then I'll have a manicure and pedicure - and yes, I wax as well. Men owe it to women to make sure they are well-groomed."
Yep, he means, his "boys." What's worse? He then splashes his cologne on his newly waxed testicles. Ouch! We mean... gross! We mean… what the heck, we wish we didn't know this, but hey, maybe that's why his cologne is called Unforgivable. [Daily Mail]

The other day Jessica Simpson was spotted in this t-shirt claiming "Real Girls Eat Meat." Some claim it was a dig at Tony Romo's ex-girlfriend, Carrie Underwood, who has twice been named World's Sexiest Vegetarian by Peta. It's no shock which side the animal rights group is on, as Peta issued the following statement:Read More »from Jessica disses Carrie Underwood, but Peta has her back
"For a gal who's best known for her less-than-stellar brains (Chicken of the Sea, anyone?) and her ability to proportionately fill out daisy dukes, I'm gonna go on record saying that if anyone had to wear a ridiculous shirt like this, I'm glad it was Jessica-as people are more likely to follow the opposite of her lead ... ya know, since she's so well respected and all (yes, that was difficult to type without tossing in a hefty LOL). Maybe the meat-eaters of the world will be embarrassed to be categorized in the same field as Jessica Simpson."
We're with Peta on this one… but we're not sure we're willing to give Jessica credit for deliberately making such a statement. She
Over the weekend, Paris Hilton was en route to a photo shoot and "wanted a puppy in the picture with her so it would look cuter." She made a quick stop at The Puppy Store on Melrose Avenue in L.A. and tried to buy a Yorkie… until an employee said no way as it was obviously "an impulse buy." Paris, who wanted (for the moment) for add a pup to her stash back home, went "ballistic." "She started screaming, 'I love my puppies! I want my baby!'" We're happy to report, no puppies were harmed, or sold, that day.
Do you think Paris is wrong for treating animals like accessories she can neglect? [NY Post]
