— They already have six kids and two of those are still in diapers, but actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making plans for baby number seven, according to a source close to the couple.
“Angie is doing everything she can to get pregnant,” the insider revealed to OK! magazine. “She’s taking prenatal vitamins, has dramatically cut down on her junk-food consumption, and is seeing her obstetrician regularly whenever she’s back in L.A.”
If all goes as planned, it looks like Maddox, 7, Pax, 5, Zahara, 4, Shiloh, 2, and 7-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne won’t have long to wait for their next sibling.
“Her goal is to be pregnant by the time Knox and Viv have their first birthday,” the insider said. “Angie is one of those people who always manages to achieve whatever she wants.”
Duff vs. Dunaway
Move over Clyde! There’s Bonnie vs. Bonnie battle brewing. Seems singer-turned-actress Hilary Duff, who’s set to play the female lead in a new production of “Bonnie and Clyde,” doesn’t appreciate the opinion of the big screen’s original gun-wielding woman, Faye Dunaway.
“Couldn’t they at least cast a real actress?” Dunaway allegedly asked when she first heard the 21-year-old accepted the part.
Well, as far as Duff was concerned, those were fighting words.
“I think that my fans who are going to see the movie don’t even know who she is,” Duff told the E! Network’s “Daily 10.” “I think (Dunaway’s comments were) a little unnecessary, but I might be mad if I looked like that, too.”
Shatner fans the flames in feud with Takei
Just when it seemed like the on-going feud between “Star Trek” alumni William Shatner and George Takei was fading away, Shatner fanned the flames once more.
In January, Takei mirrored the pair’s original wedding invite controversy by taking TV’s Captain Kirk to task for claiming to invite him to hash out their troubles on Shatner’s new A&E show, “Raw Nerve,” but never actually issuing him an invite.
Shatner cleared up the confusion and added to the contention Tuesday, in the latest video posted to “The Shatner Project.”
“Well, there’s a process,” Shatner said. “George has to be vetted, like you have to vet a horse that you were going to buy or a wife you were going to marry. You’ve got to vet him. You’ve got to research. You’ve got to Google him. George is being Googled even as we speak. The A&E network has to OK each name, so George, we’ve got your name on a list.”
Shatner then explained why Takei’s name was so far down on that list.
“We needed people with celebrity value to begin to open the show — to get people to watch,” he said with a smile. “Now that people are watching, I’m sure we can step outside and get people with less celebrity, like George.”
Dish on the fly
Though she has no plans to turn her back on her Emmy award-winning talk show yet, Ellen DeGeneres looks forward to living outside of the limelight one day. “I don’t need to be on camera,” DeGeneres explained in the March issue of Ladies Home Journal. “I’m not a workaholic. I love to spend time with my wife (Portia de Rossi), my family, my animals.” In fact, when retirement time finally rolls around, she hopes to spend time with a lot more animals. “(We’re) looking for the right place to have a farm. Some place like Massachusetts or Nantucket, with seasons.” … Exactly one week after breaking his promise not to post about daughter Lindsay Lohan and her ever-present companion, Samantha Ronson, Michael Lohan decided to give up his blog for good. Of course, in true Papa Lohan style, he didn’t do it without taking some parting swipes at Ronson. In an entry titled “My Final Blog,” the mad dad quoted “a very close and dear friend of Lindsay’s” who said, “Lindsay is worse off than ever since she has been with Sam.” Then the senior Lohan suggested that readers take a look at Ronson’s tax returns if they want to know why she’s really always at LiLo’s side.
