"My daughter is super excited," the actress told Huffington Post in April. "She's actually incredibly helpful and … she's really understanding things, when I say like, 'Mom can't carry you right now because the baby in her tummy is pressing down on her bladder!' She understands what that means and she's cool with it."
Busy: I Became A Celebrity Because I Had A Kid
The actress, who is famous for her roles in Dawson's Creek, Freaks and Geeks and ER, has joked in the past that being a mommy has given her more celebrity cred.
"I only became a celebrity because I had a kid. Before I was pregnant nobody cared," the actress told Babble.
"My husband has a theory that celebrity gossip feels so seedy, but if you can put a positive spin on it, like touting a new baby, then people somehow feel it's okay. I joke to my agent that having a baby made my career," she added.
We’re pretty sure she’s being humble. We think Busy’s acting put her on the map.

Kristen Stewart: Robert Pattinson Dating Riley Keough — KStew Smiles Bravely
“While a spokesperson for Elvis Presley’s granddaughter insisted the pair aren't dating on Tuesday, Pattinson's friends have again confirmed to Mail Online that they spent much of last week together,” a source told Mail Online.
Rob 27, and Riley, 24, are just trying to hide their relationship, a source confirms to HollywoodLife.com exclusively. Rob, who dated Kristen, 23, for four years, resented the fact that their relationship became its own celebrity. They had a hard time going anywhere without being hounded by fans or the paparazzi. Rob likes Riley because she can go out in public unnoticed.
Furthermore, ”If [Rob and Riley] don’t want to make it official then that’s fine, but there’s an attraction. They just don’t want it in the news and don’t want it to look like they are shoving it down people’s throats. They are having fun and people consider them dating. If they don’t, then it’s a technicality,” a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Robert Pattinson & Riley Keough: Their Relationship Is Built To Last
“This relationship has all the tools and is built to last, because they really get each other. It’s so new and they have just started entering the honeymoon phase, so it’s only a matter of time that you’ll see them out again, no matter how much they’d like to hide it,” our source also says.
This news comes as Kristen appears to be putting on a brave face in Paris during Fashion Week. We don’t blame her — a smile is always better than tears. we are certainly happy she’s putting on a strong face during this difficult time.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are Rob & Riley hiding their relationship?
Kerry Washington Wedding — ‘Scandal’ Star Secretly Weds NFLer Nnamdi Asomugha
Kerry, 36, and Nnamdi, 31, are not a high-profile couple, but they’ve been dating since last summer, TerezOwens.com reports.
This is the first marriage for Kerry, who’s now the hottest woman on television. She broke up with fiance David Moscow (he starred as young Tom Hanks in Big) in 2007 after dating for several years.
Kerry Washington Keeps Her Private Life Guarded
Since then, Kerry’s kept her private life on the down-low, which is why her June 24 wedding came as a huge surprise. However, thanks to her breakout roles in ABC’s Scandal and Django Unchained, she’ll likely find it more difficult to keep her private life hidden as she moves forward.
Nnamdi played with the Oakland Raiders for eight seasons and the Philadelphia Eagles for two before signing with the 49ers in April. He’s also done a bit of acting, having recently starred in The Game, Friday Night Lights and Leverage.
Congratulations to the happy couple!

During a pretrial hearing on July 3, Ariel Castro asked permission to visit the six-year-old daughter he fathered with Amanda Berry during the ten years he held her hostage in his Cleveland basement.
Ariel Castro begged Cleveland judge Michael Russo to see his daughter, Jocelyn, 6, during a pretrial hearing on July 3. Ariel, 52, has been indicted on over 300 counts, including rape, kidnapping and aggravated murder for holding Jocelyn’s mother Amanda Berry along with Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight captive in his basement for over a decade.
Ariel Castro Requests To See Daughter
Ariel asked Judge Russo if he could see Jocelyn on July 3, and the judge replied “I just think that would be inappropriate,” as reported by The Daily Mail.
It is not surprising that the judge denied this request, because at the trial Ariel was deemed competent to stand trial, because he is mentally able to understand the charges and assist attorneys in his defense.
Ariel Castro Indicted
A Cuyahoga County Grand Jury previously indicted Ariel on 329 counts. The accused kidnapper was indicted for one count of aggravated murder for beating Michelle to purposely cause her to miscarry their child.
He was also indicted on 139 counts of rape, 177 counts of kidnapping, seven counts of gross sexual imposition, three counts of felonious assault, and one count of possession of criminal tools.
Considering the length of what he has been charged with, it is not at all surprising the judge refused him access to Jocelyn.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are YOU shocked that Ariel wanted to visit his little girl? Should he have been granted one?
So bittersweet. Pierce Brosnan walked daughter Charlotte down the aisle in a secret wedding ceremony two weeks before she lost her battle with ovarian cancer.
Charlotte Brosnan and her long-time artist boyfriend Alex Smith tied the knot in a small, private ceremony with family and friends two weeks before she died of ovarian cancer. Pierce Brosnan walked his beloved daughter down the aisle, and the mom-of-two’s daughter Isabella, 14, served as bridesmaid, the UK’s Daily Mail is reporting.
Though it seems so sad now, a family friend who attended the ceremony said it was a joyous occasion: “It was the most moving day of my life. It wasn’t a day to be sad. Alex and Pierce were smiling broadly.”
"On June 28 my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer," Pierce, 60, told PEOPLE. "She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas and brothers Christopher and Sean."
Charlotte’s Family Takes To Facebook To Honor Her Memory
Daughter Isabella called her mother an “angel” in a moving Facebook post, while Charlotte’s brother — 29-year-old actor and producer Sean Brosnan — also took to Facebook to remember his sister. Although he didn’t post a message, the heartbreaking pictures he posted of the two siblings lovingly goofing around with Charlotte’s son Lucas, 8, were worth a million words.
Charlotte was clearly undergoing cancer treatment when the photos were taken. She was wearing a bandana and a hat, and reveals her shaved head in one of the photos.
It’s so sad that Charlotte was taken so soon from her family and friends. Our thoughts go out to them during this difficult time.
The countdown is officially on! Kate Middleton could give birth any day now to her first child with husband Prince William, but sources say she’s just as anxious as any new mom to welcome her first child!

Prince William, 31, andKate Middleton, 31, are ready to welcome their bundle of joy and the new heir to the throne, but it’s still their first child — and they have jitters like anyone else!
Kate Middleton ‘Nervous’ About Birth
Sources told Us Weeklyall about the anxiety that Kate is experiencing in the days leading up to her delivery.
“Naturally she is a little nervous about the big day, but what new mum wouldn’t be?” the source told the mag.
Kate is obviously anxious about the birth, but that doesn’t mean that she’s not excited too! The Duchess is reportedly loving the end of her pregnancy!
“She’s full of energy and really rather used to the bump!” the insider added.
Kate Keeping Busy Before Birth of Royal Baby
Instead of worrying about the delivery, Kate has found herself busy in recent days, prepping for her new bundle of joy by doing a little redecorating. The Duchess has been eager to finish the redecoration project on her 20-room apartment in Kensington Palace before the family plans to move in in the fall.
“She’s still busy, making sure she’s done as much as possible for the new house before the baby is born,” the insider added. “Once the baby is born, she won’t have time for anything else!”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for the birth of the royal baby?
The early reviews are in, and not everyone is too wild about this Wild West flick. If you’re thinking of checking out this flick, see what the critics had to say here first– the good, the bad, and the ugly!
Whenever the Wild West goes big-budget Hollywood and Johnny Depppiles on the costume makeup, fans go nuts. Isn’t this winning combination pure cinema gold? With its prime 4th of July weekend opening timeslot and hunky Armie Hammer, The Lone Ranger is sure to be a hit with summertime moviegoers, even if the critics are not 100% on board: HollywoodLife.com'sEditor-in-Chief Bonnie Fuller already gives it a thumbs up recommendation.
‘The Lone Ranger’ Movie Reviews
The Associated Press:
Stretching hard to both reinvent an out-of-date brand and breathe new life in the Western with a desperate onslaught of bloated set pieces, [this film] is a poor locomotive for Depp’s eccentric theatrics. For 2 ½ hours, … Lone Ranger inflates, subverts and distorts the conventions of the Western until, in an interminable climax, the big-budget spectacle finally, exhaustingly collapses in a scrap heap of train wreckage.
[The movie's] to-do list is ambitious. One: Dust off a proto-superhero from the radio-drama days, and sell him to the new Sherlock Holmes crowd. Two: Allow Johnny Depp, whose flamboyant Jack Sparrow turned Verbinski’s Pirates of the Caribbean films into blockbusters, to run riot as Tonto, a rogue Comanche wearing witch-doctor makeup and a crow on his head. Three: Flip manifest destiny on its head by putting the Indian ahead of the cowboy. The Lone Ranger succeeds on all counts — perhaps too well. The movie is so imaginative, so brimming with ideas that it can’t quite decide what to be. (Two Pirates veterans co-wrote the script.) It’s a rollicking action-adventure with locomotives, rooftop shootouts and a bright-white Silver who has the powers of Pegasus.
New York Daily News:
Even Johnny Depp can’t save The Lone Ranger. … Director Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger is for anyone who thought the Native American guy from the Village People and a western-wear model would make the perfect blockbuster-action team. … Not quite a parody but broader than an homage, The Lone Ranger fights itself at every turn. Verbinski, who with Depp did three "Pirates of the Caribbean" adventures as well as the animated Rango, has energy to spare but a restless spirit.
[Depp is] the best thing about the movie. But it’s a 2½-hour slog, with tonal inconsistencies and monotonous, drawn-out action sequences. Scenes alternate between frenetic and tedious.
In general, the only consistently good words about the film have revolved around the impressive cinematography, action sequences, and stunning natural scenery. Overdrawn scenes and the gruelling film duration aside, this movie is perfect for a holiday weekend escape. Watch our own review of the movie below, and let us know – HollywoodLifers, are YOU going to give The Lone Ranger a chance?
Rita Ora wore some extremely wideleg trousers to present a fashion award in London yesterday. Do you love or loathe the emerging trend?
Trend alert! Rita Ora was photographed in London on July 2 to present an award for the 2013 Fashion Retail Academy Awards. The 22-year-old stunned in a head-to-toe Top Shop Boutique ensemble with some leather culottes. Figure out how you can get the EXACT look right HERE!
Rita Ora’s London Look:
I have a very tumultuous relationship with Rita Ora’s fashion choices. However, I was pleasantly surprised with her latest pick when she visited London to present an award for the 2013 Fashion Retail Academy Awards. Earlier this season, we did a fashion face off between Rihanna, 25, and Gwen Stefani, 43, in Balmain leather harlem pants. And while I love Harlem pants, the leather hugged the singers in all the wrong places. Fast forward a few weeks and Rita is rocking Top Shop Boutique leather culottes and looking fabulous in the process. Jennifer Lawrence, 22, was just seen sporting a pair at the Dior Fashion Show in Paris on July 1. Could we be sensing a trend alert?
The songstress paired the head-to-toe Top Shop look with a white crop top and black ankle-strap sandals. She donned her signature red lip and wore her hair in long curls. I’ve never been a huge advocate for wearing baggy leather, but the songstress seems to have pulled it off flawlessly. The crop top still shows off the “How We Do” singer’s awesome bod, which is a huge plus.
I love celebs who can rock affordable brands and still look couture. Rita certainly pulled off the look and she didn’t have to break the bank to do it. Are you a fan of Rita’s culottes? If so, you can purchase the same exact pair for about $320 on the Top Shop official website. Do you want to rock the whole look? You can pick up her crop top for only $23 by clicking the link! Finish off the Ora-inspired outfit with the strappy heels for about $175 by clicking here!
What do you think of the new culotte trend? Would you rock a pair like Rita Ora? Sound off in the comments and don’t forget to VOTE!
Even the fashion-forward Riri loves to recycle her fave items — but she showed off her top in two totally different ways! Which look did you like better? VOTE!
The iconic trend setter is known for making bold risks when it comes to fashion. She was seen for the second time wearing the hot, black bralette style crop top in Paris on July 1. Rihanna, 25, was strutting her stuff in Paris last night in her favorite top. Always looking phenomenal, the star took a risk and wore the same top twice — but it’s okay, because she paired it with a different bottom and ultimately dawned a more ‘upscale’ look. Which bottoms do you prefer with the crop top?
Rihanna’s Paris Fashion Week Outfit:
The hot songstress made a pitstop in Paris between her concerts in London and Germany, allowing her a convenient break to attend the Chanel Haute Couture show during Paris Fashion Week.
Last night, she went out to dinner at the L'Avenue Restaurant with her friend, Melissa Forde, where she wore her chic, (and what proves to be versatile!), satin crop top. The T by Alexander Wang bralette proved to be very revealing and allowed Rihanna to flaunt her tattoos.
RiRi paired the top with a light pink Prada Spring 2013 slip skirt, giving the top a classier edge. Showing off her toned tummy, Rihanna added a criss-cross body chain as her main accessory, embellishing the look with a gold “Fenty” nametag necklace and gold hoops. Her left arm was covered in gold bangles, our favorite one being her gold arm cuff that she wore at the top of her forearm. She added a bright red lip to the ensemble to really get glam and finished off the outfit with a pair of white Manolo Blahnik sandals.
Rihanna’s Crop Top — The First Time She Wore It:
The “Rated R” singer and actress was previously seen wearing the same top when she went to the King of Diamonds Gentlemen's Club in Miami on Apr. 20. She paired the bralette with matching black satin shorts, still obviously revealing her stomach and showing off a little more skin than she did with the Prada skirt. She rocked another bright pink lip, which seems to be ‘the thing to do’ when she wears this hot top.
RiRi was looking sophisticated, classy, and confident on her night out in ‘#PaRih,’ as she likes to say on Twitter and Instagram. Regardless of her trendy, sexy look and her ability to always exude confidence, what do YOU think of Rihanna’s outfit repeat? Did you like it better in Miami or in Paris? Do you like it casual with shorts or classy with her skirt? VOTE!
