The lovely Whitney Port appears wind-blown and a little chilly at lunch with some friends on Thursday while filming an episode of her MTV reality show, The City.

The scene was Philip Marie restaurant in New York City's West Village neighborhood. N.Y.C. can't compare to L.A.'s weather, but it'll warm up eventually, Whit.

Whitney wears a trendy belted trench to lunch in the West Village.

The star, who reportedly reconciled with beau Jay Lyon, is already filming the second season of The City, a spin-off of The Hills (on which she spent four seasons).

As for The Hills, Whitney's BFF Lauren Conrad has announced that this season will be her last. Whether the show itself continues after season is undecided.

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr., who have been together for so long that we're surprised they didn't have kids before this, are now expecting their first child together, a source close to the couple confirms.

"They're very excited," says the source, adding that the actress, 31, is due in the fall.

Tiger Woods' Son

Gellar, who has been married to Prinze, 33, for six years, is planning to shoot the HBO pilot The Wonderful Maladays, for which she serves as an executive producer.

Prinze recently shot the comedy pilot No Heroics for ABC.

Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar got married in an intimate ceremony back on September 1, 2002, in Mexico. They first met in 1996 on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer but didn't begin dating until January 2000.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Since January 20, the celebrity gossip craze has been Michelle Obama fashion - what fancy designers and average brands the First Lady wears, and so on.

But what about what the President watches on TV?

Well, according to TV Guide, the Commander-in-Chief's television tastes include sports, Hannah Montana and - above all else - Vincent Chase.

HBO's Entourage is the Barack Obama's favorite show, which is appropriate, as Ari Gold was inspired by real-life agent Ari Emanuel, the brother of Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. So how much does Obama like Entourage?

"[W]e would have these Sunday night campaign conference calls at the same time as Entourage," press secretary Robert Gibbs said.

"I remember one time I e-mailed him because the call was scheduled for the last 15 minutes of Entourage and I said, 'Just be late and we can just watch Entourage and still get on and do the call. And it worked. We got to see Entourage."

The commander-in-chief was also a fan of The Wire. Last year, he named Omar, a gay drug dealer, as his favorite character because he's "fascinating."

For more family-friendly fare, Barack Obama takes in Hannah Montana and SpongeBob SquarePants with his daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7.

Not surprisingly, the basketball aficionado can't be without his ESPN either. Obama, who correctly predicted that the University of North Carolina would win the NCAA championship in his pool, watches SportsCenter religiously.

Hey, beats the local news, right?

In part two of his interview on CBS' The Early Show, Levi Johnston - the 19-year-old father of Sarah Palin's grandson - continued to accuse the Palin family of trying to prevent him from spending time alone with his 3-month-old son, Tripp.

Levi said that while he still talks to Bristol Palin, 18, "every day, every other day," the conversations are "real short ... You know, I call her to see - see how my baby's doing, that kind of thing. But we don't really sit there and talk."

He also talked about how he first met Sarah Palin's daughter and had been close to her for years, but that all changed when she was picked as the Republican party's nominee for Vice President last August, according to Levi.

In addition to calling the Palins liars about his past connection to them, Levi and his mother, Sherry Johnston, also say that the family won't let her see her grandson and wants to meet with the Palins to work out a custody arrangement.

In a perfect world, "everything will be reconciled," Sherry said. "[I hope] we can get together, if for no other reason, [than] for Tripp. He deserves to know both his grandmas and grandpas, and aunts and uncles. And mom and dad."

"I had a really rough summer," added Sherry, who faces six felony counts of possessing and selling the prescription painkiller OxyContin. "And Tripp ... just waiting for him ... was the only thing that really got me through."

Which side are you on?

You simply never know what Britney Spears is going to do next.

In Vancouver last night, she pulled the plug on a sold-out Circus tour stop 15 minutes and three songs into her performance – inexplicably departing the stage and leaving a baffled audience in the dark for more than half an hour.

Boos ensued. Cigarette smoke was blamed.

"The building is awfully smoky," the announcer said during the unannounced hiatus. "It is uncomfortable for everyone on stage, including Ms. Spears."

People were told to extinguish cigarettes in the non-smoking building and the show would resume when the smoke cleared, the Vancouver Sun reports.

This left the fans "really pissed off," according to one concert-goer. "The break in the concert pretty much ruined it for everyone. The vibe was gone."

No word on whether she hit it with K-Fed during the break.

When she did return, the star delivered a Bollywood take on "Me Against the Music," followed by "Everytime" - during which she asked the crowd "What's up, Vancouver?" before again leaving the stage, some 90 seconds before the end of the song.

The concert concluded with Britney Spears singing her hit single, "Womanizer," and advising a still-restless crowd, "Vancouver, don't smoke weed."

What a lovable, sexy nut job.

After the show, Spears's publicist issued a statement saying "crew members above the stage became ill due to a ventilation issue." Poor Chase Benz!

In celebrity news possibly even less surprising than Britney Spears walking off the stage inexplicably in mid-concert, Pink’s ex-husband, Carey Hart, has revealed their relationship is back on, despite divorcing last year.

“We’re working sh!t out, I admit it. She’s totally normal and low-key,” he said.

Pink on Stage

Well, that's good to hear, even if one could take issue with the normal part.

The two seemed destined to get married again, even after they divorced.

Pink even said after the split their future may involve “babies and sunshine.”

We are totally happy for the reconciling pair, even if it's a little disappointing that Pink may be engaged in a little less self-love girl-on-girl action.

Pink and Carey Hart are back on. You may now exhale.

Seven down, one to go.

The last of the famous octuplets born to Nadya Suleman - a boy born at just 1 lb., 8 oz. - has tripled in weight and is getting close to being able to go home.

"Jonah is doing very well. He's thriving. He's getting stronger each day," said Mandhir Gupta, a neonatologist at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center.

Jonah has grown to 4 lbs., 6 oz. since his birth Jan. 26 with seven other babies, who have since gone home to their mother, Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. Octomom.

The octuplets have six older siblings. Octomom has no job.

Jonah "needs time to continue to grow," Gupta says, but he's headed home soon. All the better to get him on TV for the Octomom reality show she craves so bad!

Octomom is totally full of $h!t when she says she's not doing a reality show - sources say she's been in talks with producers as recent as ... well, yesterday.

No deal has been struck, however, at least not yet.

Amazingly, Octomom told producers she wants to limit face time for the babies - but not because she actually cares. She just took a lot of heat from Kaiser Permanente after she allowed the media virtually unlimited access to the kids.

We can only hope some network will be desperate enough to give her a show. First, so the taxpayers can get some temporary relief from supporting her, and second, for the inevitable Octomom vs. Gloria Allred cage match.

Follow the jump for a video of attention-loving Octomom addressing some of the recent controversies about her and her ginormous brood ...

Joaquin Phoenix is a nut job who has gone off the rails.

Justin-Bobby rails Audrina Patridge of MTV's The Hills.

J-Bobby Pic

The Oscar-nominated actor and motorcycling deadbeat may have little in common - except that Phoenix has decided to adopt J-Bobby's style of late!

When you are this cool, modern practices such as showering, speaking in complete sentences and taking sunglasses off indoors just aren't necessary.

What do you think? Are these two hipsters look-alikes? At least in the style they both have (for reasons unknown) adopted in the recent months?

Even Justin-Bobby can't help but stare at Joaquin.

Do you see a Justin-Bobby / Joaquin Phoenix resemblance?

Ashlee Simpson is a proud mama, sharing pics of Bronx on Twitter.

Pete Wentz is a drunk moron, partying with skanks in Las Vegas.

With the useless but harmless "singer" home alone with their newborn son, her rock star husband was photographed getting wild in Sin City with a bunch of scantily clad dancers and a booze-fueled Slip 'n' Slide over the weekend.

Hey, beats diaper changing.

The Fall Out Boy bassist - sans wife of nearly one year - partied hard with about 50 band members, dancers and friends (including Girls Next Door star Holly Madison) following a sold-out show at the Palms Casino Resort on April 5.

"Everybody was going absolutely crazy," an eyewitness said. "People were even drunkenly playing makeshift Slip 'n' Slide with a mat and lubricant."

"And Pete Wentz was in great spirits. He was dancing and singing along to his band's own songs, while grinding up against the dancers. At one point he was even dancing on a pool table with the girls," the partygoer adds.

Earlier in the day, Ashlee Twittered: "I am beyond sad to leave my love ... My heart is breaking as we drive home." And also: "I need my hubs."

He just needs booze and lubricant, apparently.
