Jessica Simpson's recent weight gain (and fashion sense, which may even be worse than her music, amazingly) has become quite the topic of debate this week.

Some say the alleged singer-actress is really letting herself go these days.

Contrarily, others believe her fuller, curvy figure is both normal and healthy.

Sensing an opportunity to get some attention from celebrity news sites defend her sister, newlywed Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is even getting in on the gossip action.

Worst Jessica Simpson Picture Ever

Ash sounded off on Jess' weight on her MySpace page:

"Since when did a woman's weight become newsworthy... I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister's weight. A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to read about a woman's weight or figure as a headline on Fox News."

"All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms. Just because you're a celebrity, there shouldn't be a different standard. Is this something you would say to your wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, or even a friend? I seriously doubt it."

"How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure? Can we focus on things that really matter. - Ash"

We ask you again: Jessica Simpson's body is ...

You gotta love OK! Magazine.

When Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes exited Ivy restaurant back on January 21, the smiles on the couple's faces totally said it all: "We're in love!"

This is the celebrity gossip tabloid's "evidence" that the pair are prepared to welcome a baby sibling for adorable Suri Cruise. And it gets better.

When Tom gently placed his hand over his beautiful wife Katie's belly and she clasped his hand and held it there, the message was even clearer:

"It was identical to how Tom used to stand with Katie when she was pregnant with Suri," an eyewitness said. "You could see the love in their eyes and there was a feeling that they were sharing something very special at that moment."

Like the digestion of a nice meal, perhaps.

TomKat Baby News: OMG!

THE CELEB GOSSIP BAR HATH BEEN LOWERED: Starting rumors is one thing, but intentionally misleading stories like this are worse than Katie Holmes fashion.

Although Katie's rep tells OK! she's not expecting (shocking), everyone who knows TomKat supposedly believes that if she's not pregnant, she will be soon.

"Tom would love to have another baby!" a friend of the Valkyrie star dished to OK!. "There's nothing that gives him more pleasure than his role as a father."

The other funny thing? This made-up story not only lies about Katie being pregnant, but decided to make the non-baby female for reasons unknown.

Next week on an all-new The Bachelor: Five women, four roses. Which ladies make the final four cut and bring Jason Mesnick home for a hometown date?

We'll have to wait and see, but we sure wouldn't bet against Molly Malaney of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Molly got awfully cozy with J-Mes on the fourth week of the show, spending a romantic night camping out in a tent with him.

While others struggled through the episode to earn a rose, Malaney came out strong at the onset, earning a one-on-one date with single dad Jason after winning an entertaining, albeit awkward, songwriting / singing competition.

She made quite an impression on said date, as well.

Jason Mesnick, Molly Malaney

To the dismay of her competitors, Molly Malaney emerged as a clear favorite after canoodling with The Bachelor all night - and returning home in his clothes.

"The more I get to know her, the more I like her," Mesnick said, adding "her eyes are stargazing amazing." She responded that he gives her "butterflies."

Don't be surprised. According to Malaney's former teachers in Michigan, it's no surprise Jason would take a liking to their one-time shining star student.

The item at the center of the John Travolta extortion case has been revealed as a "refusal to transport" document, RadarOnline and TMZ are reporting.

The document detailed how "John Travolta told EMT workers he wanted to fly his son to Florida rather than drive by ambulance to the hospital... which was 45 minutes away" in the Bahamas, where Jett Travolta, 16, died of a seizure January 2.

Travolta Head Shot

In the end, John Travolta concluded that there was no time to have Jett treated in the U.S. and agreed to have him treated in the Bahamas.

Paramedic Tarino Lightbourne was charged Monday with conspiracy to commit extortion for allegedly demanding $25 million to keep this document private.

It is unclear why Lightbourne thought the document was worth $25 million, as it was mostly, if not completely irrelevant to the tragic death of Jett Travolta.

Former Bahamian Senator Pleasant Bridgewater, also accused of trying to extort money from the Travoltas, plans to "fight the untrue and unfair charges."

Police also had detained former tourism minister - and longtime Travolta family friend - Obie Wilchcombe, but he has not been charged in the case.

Despite less than stellar ratings, Whitney Port's new and sort-of-boring MTV reality show, The City, has already been renewed, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The first season debuted less than a month ago, December 29. The Hills spinoff was greeted with much hype but hasn't delivered much in the way of ratings.

Whitney Port Cleavage

Still, bring on Season Two!

CITY GAL: Whitney Port was long hesitant to allow her private life to be on camera, but she has warmed to the concept and her show has been renewed early!

Also returning on MTV: Vanessa and Angela Simmons' Daddy's Girls. MTV ordered 20 additional episodes of spinoff Teen Cribs, which debuted as a special on January 17. Bromance, starring the great Brody Jenner, has yet to be renewed.

A series of remarkable Jessica Simpson pictures are making the rounds - by now you have probably seen the photos of the alleged singer at Sunday's Kiss Country Chili Cookout in Pembroke Pines, Fla., in which she's looking far from thin.

Or fashion-savvy, but that's a different topic.

Regarding her fuller figure, Jessica's former trainer, Harley Pasternak, is quick to defend the supposed actress, telling Extra: "She has curves where a woman needs to have curves. We all go a little bit up and a little bit down. But she's healthy."

Her high-waisted jeans and double belt notwithstanding, Pasternak added "she's still sexy. She's still a beautiful woman. I have no problem with the way she looks."

Who can resist family and a good barbeque? Certainly not Kevin Federline. Dude has certainly shown he can eat. A lot. Puts Jessica Simpson to shame.

The FedEx man accepted an invitation to join his ex-wife Britney Spears and their sons for a family barbeque on Sunday afternoon at Spears' new home.

Sources say Federline - sans Victoria Prince, his new girlfriend - arrived at Britney's new house Sunday at about noon to pick up his sons Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden Jaymes, 2, from their weekend visitation with Britney Spears.

K-Fed Pic

K-Fed took time away from the golf course for a family outing.

At the star's new pad, K-Fed was invited in by Spears' father, Jamie Spears, who calls all the shots in her life after all, for a good ol' fashioned family BBQ.

He left with Sean Preston and Jayden James around 5 p.m.

While they may never be together again, it's good to see these parents on good terms. Click to enlarge some Britney and K-Fed pics from the olden daze:

While Lauren Conrad gets her own show, cosmetics endorsement, fashion line, and a $2.2 million mansion, her BFF Lauren “Lo” Bosworth gets ... birth control.

Hey, when you're the least famous non-star of The Hills, you take what you can get! Lo has become the new face (body?) of the Yaz birth control pill!

She will be hawking the product in Canada only, BTW.

Lauren Bosworth is currently hanging out up north, dishing on Yaz’s skillz in cutting out PMS-related headaches and cramps, and all that good stuff.

Dodgers Fan

In a statement released by Bayer, who makes Yaz, Lo Bosworth said:

“As a ‘Gen Yer’ working in the entertainment industry, I need to be disciplined. I need to make sure I’m taking care of myself so nothing interrupts my day.”

Sure, Lo. Whatever that means. If it means making sure you don't get knocked up with the spawn of Jason Wahler or Justin-Bobby, we're all for it, Go, girl.

Hey, if she keeps looking as good as she does in these candid photos, taken when she went to pick up some take-out recently, it'll only be a matter of time until one of those Hills manwhores tries to go there. Click to enlarge ...

The Hollywood Gossip's recap of The Bachelor is an editorialized rundown of the most memorable moments, with points awarded or deducted as we see fit. We've already heard our Bachelor babe's unique insight on last night's show. Now, the recap ...

Chris Harrison: "Two of you will go on a date with Jason, but only one will return..." First ever Bachelor cage match? Sadly no, but fun imagery. Plus 8.

Jason Mesnick Image

Nikki's true colors shine: "Stephanie already had a one-on-one date with Jason... she already had a man, had his daughter and, sadly, he died." Loosely translated: "The universe does not want Stephanie to fall in love. Gimme rose!" Minus 15.

Plus 9 for Nikki giving viewers a half-second warning before the waterworks hit: "I literally wanna cry..." Enter: tears! We literally wanna change the ch-

The General Hospital thing was fun and all, but Minus 10 for ABC blowing a GOLDEN opportunity to plug Dancing with the Stars. There was a dancing scene!

Speaking of which ... Jason Mesnick on the GH set: "I couldn't believe it. We walked in on a scene being filmed by Bradford Anderson and Kirsten Storms." (NOTE: I heard of these people 15 seconds ago when I read the cue card). Minus 10 more.

Guys will be guys: "I need to make sure it's not just [Molly's] eyes that I'm attracted to..." Plus 27 for hornball Jason's great taste in women.

Plus 20 for the unnecessary suspense created by ABC, such as when Jason picks up the rose and tells Molly Malaney how much he'd like to get to know her, but ...... [cue dramatic music] ...... there's more he'd like to learn about her! Yay!

Group dating awkwardness on a level only The Bachelor can attain.

Words you can only hear on The Bachelor: "The last time I did talk to Jason was when I was crying and when I was vomiting." - Shannon. Minus 2.

Plus 11 for the double entendre-laden exchanges involving Molly Malaney's return from her one-on-one date with Jason Mesnick. Jason: "Thanks for coming..." Fellow contestant to Molly: "Did he stay up the whole time?"

Megan on the lead-up to the rose ceremony: "This is getting harder each week. Literally, 300-400 percent harder." That makes literally no sense. Minus 200.

Not only is Melissa Rycroft hot, and in a natural way, but she has a natural way about her. She managed to be honest, nervous and emotional without being annoying! Plus 125, because a Molly-Melissa final could not be more obvious.

Odds on Shannon murdering Jason and/or the eventual winner - 3:1. Minus 4.

Plus 100 for the not-giving-out-the-final-rose twist at the ceremony. All of those girls sucked, and Jason knew it, opting for quality over quantity. Well, at least by The Bachelor standards. Guy is still dating five chicks at the frickin' same time.

Lamest exchanges of the night: 1. Following Megan's rooftop tears: "You're such a great person..." "You're such a great person!" 2. Jason to Shannon: "I know you're real...." Shannon to Jason: "I'm so real." Minus 7 per.

TOTAL +47! A quick list of who's in and out on The Bachelor...

Roses received: Molly (one-on-one date); Stephanie (two-on-one-date); Naomi (group date); Melissa and Jillian (rose ceremony).

Sacked by Jason Mesnick: Nikki (date); Megan, Lauren and Shannon (ceremony).

Whitney Port recently moved from The Hills to The City. It's a new City, but the drama certainly hasn't been dialed down since our girl moved East. On the contrary.

Taking time to discuss last night's episode, entitled "He Never Said He Had a Girlfriend," Whitney focused on the escalating fight between Adam Senn and his model girlfriend Allie, which we saw unfold in last week's episode.

Here's Whitney's take, as written on her official site ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In "He Never Said He Had a Girlfriend," the conflict continued between Allie and Adam. Jay and Adam threw an art gallery opening and the party had a huge turnout!

Everyone made an appearance, including Samantha's friend Catarina, who decided after a lunch chat with Samantha that it would be best to confront Allie and let her know EXACTLY what happened between her and Adam.

After hearing what Catarina had to say, Allie ran to the bathroom in tears with Adam not far behind. They left the party and after arguing outside went their separate ways.

Later on in the episode, Jay and I discussed the situation in my apartment. [Jay Lyon] had faith in his friend and chose to trust that Adam wouldn't betray Allie like that. 

I, on the other hand, was a bit more skeptical.
