>> To me, he'll always be the teenage boy with the apple pie down his pants – so I was kinda freaked out to hear that Jason Biggs is expecting a baby. Especially when he announced it in such a cringe-worthy fashion on Chelsea Lately. Read the details by clicking here

>> Olivia Wilde once joked that she and fiance Jason Sudeikis "have sex like Kenyan marathon runners" and now Jason has credited their sex life for his recent weight loss. In the August 2013 issue of ELLE he says: "The truth is, I'm not getting up an hour earlier and walking on a treadmill. I have the greatest workout partner in the world. And you don't need a gym membership for that kind of workout."

>> Josh Duhamel pranked supermarket shoppers in a hilarious guerilla-style commercial for Diet Pepsi. My favourite bit part is when he points the scanner over one woman and says: "I'm checking you out." Watch the video by clicking here >> http://bit.ly/1bqudQb. In other Josh news – he also announced that he and Fergie are having a boy, while Fergie revealed she's officially changing her name to Fergie Duhamel.  

>> It was revealed that Julia Roberts' niece Emma Roberts had been arrested for a domestic violence incident against her boyfriend. 

>> Jessica Simpson usually makes me feel a bit 'bleurgh', but her first tweet post-baby Ace Knute almost made me love her. She posted this pic of her mum with the caption: "Eric got carried away with his swaddling skills!" 

>> It was a crap week for Kylie Minogue – her ex-boyfriend, Olivier Martinez, got married and her current boyfriend spent the past couple of days doing THIS… Click here to see >> http://bit.ly/15IWJZ5

>> Forbes released its latest list of Hollywood's Highest-Paid Actors, and topping the chart was Robert Downey Jr, who raked in an estimated $75 million from the Iron Man trilogy and The Avengers (now the third-highest grossing film ever). Also in the Top 5 were Channing Tatum ($60 million, thanks to self-financing the unexpected blockbuster Magic Mike), Hugh Jackman ($55 million), Mark Wahlberg ($52 million) and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson ($46 million).

>> Kim Kardashian's mum Kris Jenner tried to trick everyone into watching the first episode of her self-named TV show with this Facebook update showing her holding a baby and announcing: "Will you be watching today's first episode? We have a special guest …" You'd be forgiven for thinking she was referring to her granddaughter, North West, but no it was her make-up artist's baby. Tricky.
