Pregnancy sure isn’t slowing down Jessica Simpson.

After expanding her maternity line and debuting sweet crib shoes for babies, the unstoppable mom-to-be is now rolling out spring fashions for tweens.

Only this time she’s not going at it alone. Simpson has tapped her sister Ashlee as co-creative director.

A blend of their signature styles — girlie glam and boho chic — the adorable (and whimsical!) line features everything from flowing tie-dye tops and cropped jeans to paint splatter denim vests and star print skirts.

Want a behind-the-scenes look? In the campaign video below, you’ll get a peek at mini models striking a pose in a tropical beach setting and see Ashlee and her son Bronx getting silly.

While other celebrities resorted to splurging on expensive gifts for their special someone this Valentine’s Day, Mariah Carey spent a day filled with her husband and father of her twins, Nick Cannon.

And to make us all green with envy, the “American Idol” judge chronicled her day-long “Valentine Rendezvous” from her bath tub session with her pet dog…

Chris Brown — N-Bombs & Gang Threats in Showdown with Heckler

27 Apr

Exclusive Video


Chris Brown was the victim, for a change, in an aggressive face-off with a heckler who got dangerously close to Chris’ car, then yelled to CB … “Is that motherfu**er bulletproof?!”

The scary incident went down outside L.A. nightclub “Playhouse” — Chris was making a quick exit in his Lamborghini when the man ran up to the car and started yelling, “I ain’t never seen a ni**er jump in a car that fast, ni**er.”

The man — who’s African-American — continued a non-stop verbal assault on Chris … saying, “Yo, scary-ass Chris is that motherfu**er bulletproof?” That’s when the tension really amps up because Chris appears to yell back at the heckler … asking if he’s bulletproof.

The man replied, “I’m a crip ni**er, hell yeah, I’m bulletproof!”

Before Chris drives away, he rolls down the window of his car … and you can hear someone (sounds like Chris) warn the heckler, “Don’t get f**ked up out here, my n**ga.”

Watch the clip … it’s hard to tell if the heckler is really drunk, really angry … or both.

We gotta give props to Chris — who’s still facing a possible probation violation –  because he drove off without getting into it with the douchey heckler.

‘Dukes Of Hazzard’ Sheriff Settles With Warner Bros. Over Merchandise Money

26 Apr

Dukes Of Hazzard

The actor who played the inept sheriff in hit TV series The Dukes Of Hazzard has settled a legal battle with Warner Bros. executives over merchandising revenue.

James Best, who played Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane in the show, sued Warner Bros. bosses back in August 2011, claiming he was owed millions of dollars from the show’s merchandise, including watches, shoes and cars bearing his likeness.

The case went to court in North Carolina this month and according to, Best has now settled the matter for an undisclosed sum.

In his complaint, Best argued he was owed “an amount reasonably believed to be to be between $5 million and $25 million for the early years (of the show) alone.”

The actor cited his Dukes of Hazzard contract which entitled him to 2.5 per cent of total revenue from products bearing aspects of his likeness.
