Jessica Alba’s morning got off to a rough start but she still had reason to smile … she got off with just a warning after getting pulled over by cops. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Jessica was pulled over Wednesday morning in Bev…
Jessica Simpson once sang that her boots were made for walking.
And that may still be true.
But fans at the moment are focused on something else as it relates to the singer: her stomach… and how it’s made for growing more and more each day.
Not because the singer is pigging out or anything, no.
But because she’s pregnant!!!!
Indeed, Simpson and husband Eric Johnson took social media followes by surprise on Tuesday when they announced that Simpson has a third bun in her beautiful oven.
Jessica shared this exciting news in fun fashion, too, posting to Instagram a pair of photos.
Both of them feature her two children; both of them feature a bunch of balloons; and both of them helped the artist reveal the gender of her upcoming child.
“This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life,” wrote Simpson as confirmation of the life inside her womb.
Following this reveal, the ex-wife of Nick Lachey and former MTV reality star provided supporters with their very first look at her baby bump.
Standing out in a beautiful sunlit garden, surrounded by vibrant green and flowers, Simpson has her hands on her midsection in a flowing, Bohemian dress in the following image.
“My Baby Love,” she wrote as a simple caption.
Within just 20 minutes of the snapshot going live, it has received over 46,000 Likes, with nearly every comment an expression of excitement and congratulations from Simpson’s fans.
Check it out here:
Not really a singer or an active celebrity in any sense these days, Simpson’s main focus for years has been on her kids.
“The fact that people think I’m doing a pretty good job [as a mother] is the best compliment,” she said while being honored at the 40th Annual Outstanding Mother Awards in May.
She has a six-year old and a five-year old at home already and is clearly a very hands-on parent.
“When I’m a mother, I want to actually be a mother,” she said at this same ceremony. “I don’t want a nanny doing everything for me.”
Simpson and Johnon, a former NFL tight end, welcomed a daughter named Maxwell in May of 2012.
Wasting little time in procreating, they then welcomed a son named Ace in June of 2013.
“The most rewarding part of being a mother is really just watching my kids grow,” she told Entertainment Tonight this spring, adding at the time:
“It’s like, how much knowledge they have about life is just so meaningful to me, and how much heart they put into everything they do. There’s just nothing like the innocence of a child.”
So very true.
We send our best wishes to Jessicsa Simpson on a happy and healthy pregnancy.
Very sad news today out of the world of reality television:
Jessica Vogel, a former contestant on the Fox hit Hell’s Kitchen, died on Monday in New Jersey.
She was 34 years old.
This very sad piece of news was confirmed by NorthJersey.com, which spoke to Vogel’s fiance, John Michael Keyser.
He told the website that the chef’s “heart gave out” while she was being treated at a local hospital for colitis, which is an illness that causes inflammation in the digestive tract.
“We were planning to open a restaurant together,” Keyser told this outlet. “My heart is breaking.”
Vogel attended culinary school at Johnson & Wales in Denver.
She began her cooking career by working in the kitchen of Kevin’s Thyme in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, prior to becoming a pastry chef at Grange in Westwood and Christine Nunn’s Picnic on the Square in Ridgewood.
While working at a creperie and bakery in California, Vogel auditioned for Hell’s Kitchen, making her debut on the series in March of 2014.
She finished her run on the popular program in 12th place.
During this stint, Jessica impressed Gordon Ramsay with her rosemary-crusted venison loin with roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
“Venison is one of the most difficult proteins to cook and you absolutely nailed it,” the notoriously hard-to-please celebrity chef told Vogel at the time.
“When she set her mind on something there was no way to stop her,” reads Vogel’s obituary on Legacy.com, adding:
“Jessica was fearless when it came to work, never backing down from a challenge.”
Vogel’s family said in this obituary that Jessica had battled issues with alcohol and drugs over the years.
“She recently committed to living a better life and had graduated from an inpatient rehabilitation program with hopes of regaining control of her life,” they said.
“Unfortunately, the damage done over the years was too great and she died, like she lived, a fighter.”
Vogel also appeared on the Food Network show Cutthroat Kitchen with Alton Brown in 2016 — appears to have written about her experience with alcoholism in a now-deleted 2017 Medium post.
“I’m weeks away from 34 years old and got told I drink too much and have cirrhosis,” she wrote.
“Did it stop me from pouring shots of alcohol? Nope. Did my lifestyle of sex, drugs and foie gras come to a born again Christian revelation? F-ck that noise.
“Life is a blaze of glory. I don’t know if you want an adventure tale, but I’m here and ready to tell. My name is Jess and I’ve lived to tell about it. To be continued…”
Fair Lawn-based chef Christine Nunn, who occasionally writes for The Record and NorthJersey.com, said she knew Vogel well.
“She knew more about the Bergen County dining scene than just about anyone,” Nunn told the latter website.
“She was really a talented chef who never reached her potential. It’s a shame.”
Vogel is survived by her parents, Donna Bruchmann and Mark Vogel, and her sister, Caitlin Johnstone.
May she rest in peace.
Wagging a judgmental finger at famous mothers is a favorite activities among internet trolls, and Jessica Simpson seems to be one of their favorite targets as of late.
Jessica has been mom-shamed repeatedly and for a wide variety of alleged offenses.
Haters have criticized Simpson for allowing her daughter to wear makeup.
They’ve whined that she’s too busy taking selfies to properly care for her kids.
But mostly, they’ve lambasted Jessica for allowing her husband to be too rough while playing with 4-year-old son Ace.
The latest outrage stems from the video below that Jessica posted on Instagram earlier this week.
She captioned the clip:
“A broken bone doesn’t hold this kiddo down #waterproofcast #ACEKNUTE”
This being the internet in 2018, fans proceeded to immediately lose their freakin’ minds.
“Why do u do that wow! So ridiculous!” wrote one hyper-articulate follower.
“Love you, Jess, but why throw a kid with a cast on? Even in water,” commented another, while a third described the stunt as “the most ridiculous thing to be doing as a parent.”
But don’t worry, Jess has her defenders, too.
And man, are they hoping she’ll call them up and ask to be besties.
“Your son obviously has great air sense (athletic body control while executing inverted aerial maneuvers). The fact that his arm is in a protective cast is not an issue at all,” wrote one such sycophant.
“His arm is not used in executing the maneuver other than being a balancing device. Your critics are probably not very experienced in this maneuver,” the aqua-batics expert continued.
“And he executed it with fins on??! He’s got talent and obviously as the parent you know his talent and lack of risk!!”
It’s one of those comments that reminds you that whether you’re talking politics or literally any other topic under the sun, there is no room for centrism on the internet.
Either your’re calling CPS on Jessica or praising her son’s “inverted aerial maneuvers.”
So we’re gonna do something truly subversive and fall somewhere in the middle on this:
The stunt was fine and probably perfectly safe, but we can see how it might shock fans who have never seen something similar.
Now can we all get back to talking about how drunk Jessica is all the time?
That’s much more entertaining.
The feud between Jenelle Evans and Jessica Eason — the sister of Jenelle’s troglodyte husband, David Eason — has been both very entertaining and very, very sad.
It’s entertaining because both parties are pretty much equally awful, so it’s a joy every time one of them makes life slightly more miserable for the other.
But it’s sad because both Jenelle and Jessica have young children at home, and having moms who can’t seem to stay out of jail can’t be good for these kids’ psyches.
We don’t need to tell you that Jenelle has been arrested more times than the entire roster of the 1986 Mets.
But you might not have known that Jessica is giving Jenelle a run for her money in the rap sheet department.
Yes, like her deplorable older brother, Jessica Eason gets arrested with about the same frequency that most people fill their gas tanks.
Usually, the charges are drug-related, but like Jenelle, she likes to mix things up with an assault here and there.
Jessica’s latest brush with the law came when she arrived in court to address a prior arrest.
It seems she was searched upon her arrival, which was a problem, as Jessica plum forgot she had drugs in her pocket.
Jessica was cuffed and thrown in jail on charges of felony possession of a Schedule II controlled substance.
The folks at Starcasm point out that Schedule II narcotics include “opium, opium extracts – fluid and powder, codeine, hydrocodone, morphine, methadone, methamphetamine, Ritalin, and Adderall.”
Jessica spent the weekend behind bars but was released Monday morning on $ 5,000 bond.
The 38-year-old has been keeping a relatively low profile ever since.
Remarkably, Jenelle hasn’t addressed the arrest either, so you can be sure she’s currently composing the roast of the century.
But David is still unemployed, and he appears to have all the time in the world on his hands, so it wasn’t long before he took to Facebook to sound off:
“For all you HATERS who listen to Jess’ bullsh-t, here she is in county jail on charges of being a crackhead,” he wrote.
“This is why she makes up lies and slander about me because nobody will help her support her drug habit. I don’t associate with drug addicts no matter if they’re family or not, they can never be trusted!”
Jess still hasn’t posted one of the big public statements she’s known for, but she did address the arrest by replying to a tweet about David’s remarks:
“I had adderall in my pocket instead of in it’s original container,” she wrote.
“I have to show proof in court today. That’s it!! Unlike him and his nasty bitch of a wife! Im not defending him anymore. That’s it! Grow up David!”
Classy stuff with this family, as always.
Watch Teen Mom 2 online to remind yourself of the many ways in which Jenelle and David are just the worst.
Arrested Development may truly be the funniest show in television history.
But there was nothing funny about Jason Bateman’s behavior during a recent interview with his co-stars.
Talking with the New York Times, the topic of Jeffrey Tambor’s on-set behavior was raised in a discussion that included Tambor himself, Bateman, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett and Alia Shawkat.
(Tambor quit the show Transparent amidst allegations of sexual misconduct and has admitted in the past to at least one tirade aimed at Walter during the filming of Arrested Development.)
“Not to belittle it or excuse it or anything, but in the entertainment industry it is incredibly common to have people who are, in quotes, ‘difficult.’ … And what you learn is context,” Batemn said, in an attempt to defend Tambor.
“You learn about character and you learn about work habits, work ethics, and you start to understand. Because it’s a very amorphous process, this sort of [expletive] that we do, you know, making up fake life.
“It’s a weird thing, and it is a breeding ground for atypical behavior and certain people have certain processes.”
This was already a tough start, with Bateman labeling Tambor’s inappropriate remarks to Walter as merely “atypical” and simply a part of the acting process.
But making matters so much worse?
Walter was right next to him!
And he was interrupting her while she was fighting back tears in relation to what transpired with Tambor, according to the Times.
“That doesn’t mean it’s acceptable,” Shawkat jumped and said. “And the point is that things are changing, and people need to respect each other differently.”
Maintaing her composure as best she could, Walter finally got a chance to speak:
“[In] almost 60 years of working, I’ve never had anybody yell at me like that on a set and it’s hard to deal with, but I’m over it now,” she said, acknowledging that Tambor has apologized and she has chosen to let it go.
But Bateman wasn’t finished somehow.
He repeated his sentiment, saying:
“What we do for a living is not normal, and therefore the process is not normal sometimes, and to expect it to be normal is to not understand what happens on set.
“Again, not to excuse it, but to be surprised by people having a wobbly route to their goal, their process – it’s very rarely predictable.”
As you might expect, Bateman has been SLAMMED for these comments; for not just trying to mansplain away Tambor’s behavior…but to do it in front of his victim.
Faced with this very deserved backlash, Bateman issued a mea culpa this morning that reads as follows:
Based on listening to the NYT interview and hearing people’s thoughts online, I realize that I was wrong here.
I sound like I’m condoning yelling at work. I do not. It sounds like I’m excusing Jeffery. I do not. It sounds like I’m insensitive to Jessica. I am not.
In fact, I’m horrified that I wasn’t more aware of how this incident affected her.
I’m incredibly embarrassed and deeply sorry to have done that to Jessica,” Bateman continued via Twitter. “This is a big learning moment for me.
I shouldn’t have tried so hard to mansplain, or fix a fight, or make everything okay.
I should’ve focused more on what the most important part of it all is – there’s never any excuse for abuse, in any form, from any gender. And, the victim’s voice needs to be heard and respected. Period.
I didn’t say that and instead said a bunch of other stuff and not very well. I deeply, and sincerely, apologize.
This is, thankfully, a very good and thorough apology.
But come on, men!
This really isn’t very hard.
We need to do better.

Jessica Alba is kind, beautiful, and incredibly talented. A lot of people love her, and with good reason.
But few know her so well or love her so much as her husband, Cash Warren.
Over the weekend, he penned a beautiful birthday message to her that will make you believe in love again.
April 28 was Jessica Alba’s birthday, and this stunning actress turned 37 years old.
Cash wrote a touching tribute to his wife as she snuggled with the couple’s daughters.
(They have three children; Jessica Alba gave birth to their third child on New Year’s Eve, 2017)
“I wrote this last night :)”
Posting to Instagram, his heartwarming message has an endearingly earnest emoticon before it truly begins.
“My love – It’s the eve of your birthday, you’re sleeping, our daughters are next to you in our bed, and I couldn’t think of a better time to write you a short note.”
That is such a sweet image.
“I say it every year, but I’ll never get used to how quickly time flies.”
It must be extra hard to process, since his wife looks at least a decade younger than she is.
“We can turn tiny moments into landmark events or we can accept that landmark events are simply fleeting moments.”
That is so poetic.
“Either way, I’m slowly realizing there’s no real way to keep tabs on life….sadly.”
Clearly, he wishes that he could record and relive every single moment of their beautiful lives.
“The specific memories fade but somehow we’re able to hold on to the feelings those memories create.”
He’s talking about implicit memories in comparison with explicit memories, and also about lasting impressions. But, you know, more romantically.
“And those feelings shape who we are and who we’ll become.”
That’s very true.
Cash thanks his beautiful wife Jessica for her evocative qualities.
“If I could thank you for one thing on your birthday, I’d thank you for giving me all the feelings.”
Fortunately, he can thank her for many things on her birthday.
Just … not until she wakes up.
“Today marks the first day of your next year of life.”
It sure does.
“And I promise to continue to cherish our tiny moments and our landmark events…”
That is so sweet!
And he isn’t done yet.
(Here we see Jessica holding her youngest baby, Hayes)
Cash finishes the message with an adorable statement.
“Cheers to you and another 365 days of having all the feels!”
(Note that “all of the feels” is a common expression on social media for expressing being overwhelmed with emotion, often by entertainment media like television or video games)
Finally, he signs his message.
“Happy Birthday my babe!! – me”
That is so cute, so genuine, and so sweet.
That kind of love is exactly the kind of praise and adoration that Jessica deserves in her life.
She is an actress, a businesswoman, a model, and an activist. She’s also a wife and a mother.
More than that, she’s a good person who has had her low moments in life.
It is wonderful to see a happily married couple, when Hollywood marriages too often seem rushed and then doomed to fall apart.
Jessica Alba deserves the world.
