Make no mistake-when new mom Halle Berry wore an engagement ring on her wedding finger to an event this weekend, she knew what she was doing. "It's not an engagement ring," says an insider, claiming it was not in fact a gift from boyfriend/baby daddy Gabriel Aubry. "Halle just saw it and thought it was beautiful so she bought it for herself." We're all for women buying themselves lavish gifts, but as anyone with five brain cells knows, throwing a diamond on your finger makes people talk! Ladies of Hollywood, take note. If you're lacking US Weekly covers lately, go get yourself a rock, wear it to Starbucks and let the whispers get going. When people ask if you're engaged, say "no comment" to perpetuate gossip. And what if you are actually engaged? Make like Beyonce and DON'T wear your ring to keep the did-they-or-didn't-they wedding rumors floating around. [People]

Read More »from Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon: The baby countdown begins!
Seeing as this couple took only one month of getting to know each other to marry, we're giving the newlyweds 30 days to announce there's a baby on the way. Evidently, one of Carey's assistants called L.A. baby boutique Petit Tresor (they just did J.Lo's twins' room) regarding fabric samples to dec out a new butterfly-themed nursery. Not so shocking right? Think of all the butterfly and Hello Kitty paraphernalia she must have laying around the house. Better hope she has a girl! Mariah's faithful manager, Benny Medina, says no way in heck is she knocked up. But hey, isn't that what preggers Ashlee Simpson said a few weeks ago? We have to admit, a lot of work went into her newly toned bod, and Mariah did say she wasn't up for kids anytime soon, but with her new hubby and a penchant for pink, we see a baby girl in her very near future!
Do you think the couple is baby-bound? [NY Daily News]

Just last week we blogged about Lindsay swiping some girl's fur coat at a NYC club. Now comes news that she was cuddling up to Nicole Richie's boyfriend/baby daddy, Joel Madden, at an L.A. Cinco de Mayo party while Nicole was home tending to four-month-old daughter Harlow. Joel was supposed to be deejaying, but found quite the distraction in Lohan. "Their heads were practically touching, and he had his leg over hers," says one party onlooker. "Joel has a flirtatious side, and he definitely wasn't turning her away."
Thankfully Nicole's BFF was looking out, and quickly alerted her pal with a frantic text message: "Lindsay was all over Joel!" Nicole tried to call her man, but "he was so zeroed in on Lindsay, he never heard his cell ring," says a friend of the couple. "Nicole felt so incredibly helpless and upset that she threw her phone against the wall in a rage."
Yikes! Nicole and Lindsay used to be buddies! Do you think Lohan was making a move or just being friendly? [Star]

Just days before her younger sister Ashlee's wedding, Jessica Simpson and her quarterback boyfriend, Tony Romo, have broken up. Many thought Jessica was a jinx to the Dallas Cowboys, as Tony performance was subpar and the team lost whenever she attended games.
Does this couple belong together or is it time for their luck to change? [TMZ]

Vince Bucci/Getty Images"I can't say it was a total accident," says Jessica Alba of her pregnancy, "Because you're aware of when you're being careful and when you're not. It just happened so soon. I never believed women had to be virgins when they got married, or that a woman has to fall in love with a guy just because they're having sex. I don't think sex is a big deal."
Is it just us, or do stars seem to not believe in birth control? How do you view Jessica's stance on sex? [NY Daily News]

Stephen Lovekin/Getty ImagesDon't anybody try to pull one over on Drew-her days as a Charlie's Angel are not soon forgotten. Monday morning the actress was driving through West Hollywood when a car rear-ended her and drove off. Was Ms. Barrymore gonna let them get away with it? Heck no! She took off after the hit-and-runner and tailed them until she could jot down their plate number. [E!]

The comedic force known as Catherine O'Hara is in talks to star in a new ABC dramedy pilot called Good Behavior from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas. O'Hara will play the matriarch of a family of criminals who decides to go legit after the husband lands in prison-sounds highly engaging, and we're thrilled at the idea of getting to watch her regularly.
A star who got her start on Canada's famous Second City TV (Eugene Levy, John Candy, Rick Moranis), we first fell in love with Catherine as the eccentric mom in 1988's Beetle Juice. While her memorable turns in Home Alone, Nightmare Before Christmas (she voiced Sally), and HBO's series Six Feet Under, it's Christopher Guest's series of documentaries that have made O'Hara a bonafide star. Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show and A Mighty Wind wouldn't be the same without her genius comedic timing, willingness to take risks and let's not forget her hilarious vocal prowess. We love you, Catherine! Glad you're finally getting the recognition

Ever since Ashlee was caught with an engagement ring a month ago it has been a whirlwind rush to the alter as they couple next announced her belly would soon be growing with a baby on the way. This Saturday, May 17, Ashlee and Pete will wed at a "top secret" location. Our guess is Papa Joe has already tipped off the tabloids and sold the wedding photos for at least 150K, cause, hey! A photo op like this takes place once (or twice or three times) in a lifetime!

Frederick M. Brown/Getty ImagesYou may know Denise Richards as the… hmmm… okay. Let's see, she made out with Neve Campbell in "Wild Things" and... oh right she was a Bond girl. Maybe she was a model? Well, one thing we know for sure is she's been in the tabloids a lot for stealing Heather Locker's man, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, and for her tumultuous divorce with Charlie Sheen. And this woman is getting a reality show WHY?Read More »from Why are they famous: Denise Richards
Upon further research we find that the 37-year-old from Illinois landed her first role in Starship Troopers (never saw it) and was ranked as the worst Bond girl of all time by "Entertainment Weekly" for "The World is Not Enough." Somehow we can't remember her appearances on Seinfeld, Friends and Spin City, but some might recall her posing nude for Playboy as she was ranked one of the sexiest women by both "Maxim" and the now-defunct "FHM."
Her new reality series, "Denise Richards: It's Complicated" debuts on E! this memorial day, and we've gotta say, it's not that complicated! But we
