Karolina Kurkova was already a supermodel.

Now she can add super mom to her resume.

The Victoria's Secret mainstay and her film producer fiancé, Archie Drury, are the proud parents of a baby boy, Tobin Jack Drury, born in New York on Thursday.

The lil' fella weighed in at 6 lbs., 3 oz., and the new parents are thrilled with their bundle of joy. "Both mother and baby are happy and healthy," her rep said.

Congratulations to the new mom!

On October 10, a pregnant Karolina Kurkova was given a baby shower by fellow Angels Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, who is also expecting, in NYC.

"Amazing day, amazing food, but more importantly amazing friends and family!" she Tweeted after the joyous and fun event. Adding: "Mommy-to-be is tired!"

The Czech model has recently tried her hand at acting, starring in the blockbuster G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Archie produced the documentary Voices of Iraq.

You might wanna turn away, Jessica Simpson.

A couple days after the busty, worthless, bitter singer Tweeted that Melrose Place is "crap," The CW drama is ramping up its promotional efforts.

Just two weeks away from the return of Heather Locklear as Amanda Woodward, the network has released the following new poster:

Indeed, Locklear reprises her iconic role on November 17, as Amanda returns to Los Angeles to run the PR firm at which Katie Cassidy's Ella works.

With ratings for the Melrose Place remake sinking faster than Ashlee Simpson's acting career, producers hope this casting coup will pay off.

Will you tune in for Locklear's return to primetime television?

The new Michael Jackson album This It It, a 20-track, two-CD set accompanying the release of the movie of the same name, features one of his poems, "Planet Earth."

His poetry is a call to environmental awareness, according to James Bearden, the music supervisor of Jackson's This Is It tour, who told MTV about the singer's theme:

Michael Jackson, Children

"[Jackson] wanted the world to know this may be it when it came to seeing him tour, and if we don't start paying attention to the world, it will be it for the Earth too."

He's one of the biggest music stars ever, but can MJ hack it as a poet?

Critical reaction to Jackson's prose has been mixed, but generally positive.

It has been called everything from "unsophisticated but poignant" (Globe and Mail) to "hokey at times, but there is a childlike quality that emerges after a few listens" (New York Post) to "vapid" (Toronto Star) and "consider yourself warned" (Time).

Nine months after she was assaulted by then-boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna is finally breaking her silence about the infamous night that left her bruised and bloodied.

What made the incident hardest on Rihanna was the fact that Brown had held such a special place in her heart: "He was definitely my first big love," the star admits.

That's gotta hurt, Negus Sealy.

In the interview with Diane Sawyer, airing on Good Morning America Thursday and 20/20 Friday, she warns, "This can happen to me, it can happen to anyone."

Aggression

Rihanna opens up to Diane Sawyer about Chris Brown.

Both singers have worked to move on since that awful night, with Brown serving his community labor sentence in Virginia and working on his new album, Graffiti.

That record drops December 15. Rihanna is shaking things up her fourth album, Rated R, on November 23. Her latest single, "Wait Your Turn" debuted Monday.

What else will she have to say about her lover-turned-attacker when the full interview airs later in the week? We'll have the latest for you as soon as we know.

On one hand, it's refreshing for Kristen Stewart to shun fame.

How often do we make fun of attention-starved celebs, such as Tila Tequila and the Kardashians, that would do anything for attention?

Crowd Favorites

On the other hand, it would be nice if the Twilight Saga star lightened up a bit. In a recent interview with BlackBook magazine, Kristen's critique of her status almost came across as insulting to fans.

"Nothing about being a celebrity is desirable," Stewart said. "I'm an actor. It's bizarre to me that everybody's so obsessive."

We agree. But Kristen knew what she was getting into when she signed on as Bella Swan. She's in danger of biting the hand that feeds her when she complains in such a manner.

It should come as no surprise that Stewart didn't touch on her rumored relationship with Robert Pattinson in the interview, though she did bring up his character of Edward Cullen.

"Edward is actually a really good parallel to fame," she said. "As a vampire, he has a sad, desolate life - fame is the same."

Jeez. Take a chill pill, girl! You're free to leave the entertainment business at any point, but remember how you feel about fame the next time you stay in a five-star hotel or take home a closet of free, expensive clothing.

Life could be worse.

Did Dancing with the Stars hire the writers from Heroes this season?

There are too many characters on the ABC competition, none are particularly compelling and it's impossible to see where this season is going.

The only positive from season nine is that it thrust Joanna Krupa back into the national spotlight, enabling her to pose for Playboy once again next month. We're excited to see her naked.

Clothed and on the dance floor? Eh, we could take it or leave it. Krupa and Derek Hough performed well last night, at least, as this Dancing with the Stars recap reveals.

Bright Spots

Taking the solo dances and group dances into consideration, this is a look at the week's leaderboard:

  • Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough: 55
  • Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff: 53
  • Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson: 52
  • Kelly Osbourne and Louis van Amstel: 52
  • Mya and Dmitry Chaplin: 49
  • Michael Irvin and Anna Demidova: 47
  • Mark Dacascos and Anna Trebunskaya: 43

Displaying rare humanity and perspective, Kate Gosselin said she isn't proud of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 moments which she spent basically castrating hubby Jon.

"I was very hard on him. I would never deny that," she said on the TLC special Kate: Her Story. "I felt very much like a lot of weight rested on my shoulders."

"I was wrong to treat him that way," Kate Gosselin added. "Was it good, healthy and wonderful? No. Am I proud of those moments that were captured? No."

Those moments were what initially had fans playing for Team Jon in the early stages of the couple's split, before new Jon became the world's biggest d-bag.

"I still wake up every day, and I think the phone will ring," Kate began, taking a long pause before she continued, voice cracking, "and it'll be the old Jon."

Below are more excerpts from this very special interview ...

On how they drifted apart. "Our goals just very much changed. My goals didn't change as a mom. I just think somewhere along the line, his goals changed."

On when she knew it was over: "I think I was on a plane coming home from somewhere and I remember thinking, We're not going to recover from this."

On the possibly exploitative nature of Jon and Kate Plus 8: "As someone who laid on bed rest from 7 to 30 weeks, who fought for every second of their existence, I can tell you there is nothing that would force me to put them in harm's way."

On why she doesn't quit while she's ahead: "We can't turn life off. I can't turn life off. In the last nine, 10 months, it's gotten really crazy and I can't seem to get away from it at this point. My goal in all this is I just want peace for my kids."

On why doesn't she pull the plug on the spotlight right now: "We're too far gone. Stepping out of the spotlight when it's prudent to do so is a good thing."

On the rumor she had an affair with her bodyguard, Steve Neild, earlier this year: "So unthinkable to me that to have to think about it makes me sick."

On why she needs a bodyguard: "People have a lot of contempt and hate toward me and at the end of the day, I need to come home safe to my kids."

On Jon's increasingly suspect personal life: "We do [talk] where it relates to the kids. As far as dating goes, I've never, ever broached the subject with him."

There's not a lot to say here. No big news or anything scandalous.

It's just a classic picture of Spencer Pratt apparently stoned, drunk or both. Which is good enough for us. After all, who wouldn't get a kick out of this?

Your Order's Up!

For all we know, this photo, which originated on Perez Hilton, was taken while he was blinking. Sometimes the camera just doesn't tell the whole story.

Either way, here is Mr. Heidi Montag at Playboy Mansion ...

Spencer Pratt does some serious ogling. Possibly baked ogling.

Whether Spencer Pratt is really stoned or not, he's apparently gotten his wife confused for some other fake-tanned, bleach blonde tramp with enormous fake boobs.

One can forgive him for that. There are a ton of those in L.A.

Hulk Hogan made a name for himself in the contrived world of professional living.

According to ex-wife Linda Hogan, the same sort of fiction can be applied to his upcoming autobiography, My Life Outside The Ring.

Better Times

In the book, Hulk writes he was very close to suicide, while also laying into his former flame, referring to Linda as an "abusive alcoholic."

“As far as what he has said about Linda, it’s not accurate about her being involved with heavy alcohol and being abusive, and trying to hit Nick with a wine bottle? Absolutely false. It’s disappointing and it is irritating," said Linda's rep, adding:

"We disagree and wish he would have stuck to the facts instead of sensationalism to sell his book. It does reheat a lot of stuff, but it makes her feel all the more happy that she’s divorced and away from him. He’s [girlfriend Jennifer McDaniel's] problem now."

What about Linda's relationship with daughter Brooke Hogan?

It's reportedly made Lindsay and Michael Lohan seem like close relatives.

“They’re very good," said the rep. "Brooke has been spending a lot of time with Linda in California. It’s been a great revolution that they are back together, mother and daughter, very close, and in fact, she talked to Brooke today at least once or twice."

No word on how many times Linda mocked Brooke's fake boobs on those calls, but, hey, at least they're chatting!
