The arrival of the first child for Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson (the actor's eight overall) has now been confirmed, and is bringing joy halfway around the world.

Contacted in Moscow, Lyudmilla Chernukha, mother of Gibson's girlfriend, who delivered their daughter, Lucia, Friday, last week tells People, "I'm delighted!"

And a little relieved. Chernukha admits the pregnancy was made difficult for her daughter a pianist and singer, by all the intense celebrity gossip attention.

"I'm very pleased for her because during her pregnancy she worried a lot because of all the bad press written about her. Lots and lots and lots of lies," she says.

We can't actually recall any lies. Plenty of criticism of devout Catholic Mel knocking Oksana Grigorieva up while married to the mother of his seven kids, but no lies.

Oksana Grigorieva's pregnancy was announced just a few weeks after her affair with Mel was made public and Gibson's wife of 30 years, Robyn, filed for divorce.

"Her pregnancy was a hard one even though she had no [medical] problems with it," says Chernukha. "Of course, Mel supported her and so did all of her friends."

Grigorieva, who also has a 12-year-old son, Alexander (pictured above) fathered by James Bond star Timothy Dalton, tries to stay out of the headlines if possible.

"She doesn't make any statements or get involved with refuting what's said about her. She just tries to keep her best to keep closed off from all the journalists."

The grandmother hopes her daughter and child will visit soon. Grigorieva told reporters of her plans to take Gibson and the baby back to her homeland next year.

"Russians are very nostalgic," she said.

She and Jon Gosselin may have broken up, or at the very least decided to take a break, as of late last week, but Hailey Glassman isn't back on the market.

At least not yet, according to her Twitter.

"I am semi-single, but definitely NOT YET ready to mingle," she wrote in response to rumors. "I need some Hailey time and regroup myself and my life."

Later, Hailey Glassman Twittered to The Hollywood Gossip exclusively that in the wake of the split, she's "now fearful of relationships, its unnecessary pain and stress in life" and "Eh some may say im Traumatized by this whole mess."

She added: "but you live and learn,and i learned i'm happier alone maybe and keeping relationships at a distance, I'm looking forward to therapy-LOL"

LOL, indeed.

Jon and Hailey Picture

Post-Jon Gosselin breakup, Hailey Glassman is making time for Hailey.

Earlier, Jon apparently experienced a surprise growth of brain cells and thanked his ex, who he credited for helping him see the error of his recent ways.

"Going home to see my kids, excited, but i'll miss Hailey," Jon Twittered. "She has made me realize I need to be an honest person/father for my kids."

That only took ... well, far too long.

Hailey, who made headlines last week with her comments to The Insider that Gosselin emotionally abused her during their relationship, appears to be moving on ... or at least focusing on other, simpler things in life for the time being.

After her comments on Jon, she Twittered a link to Rusted Root's 1994 hit "Send Me On My Way" and shared some thoughts on the World Series.

She's pro-Yanks. Nobody's perfect.

Robert Pattinson photos are handsome, yet they're also seen less frequently these days than pants on Britney Spears from 2006-2008.

As numerous sources have confirmed, the actor has been keeping a low profile ever since paparazzi bombarded him and his co-stars during the shooting of Twilight.

EW Outtake

For that reason, it's breaking news when the gorgeous actor merely surfaces these days, as he did in Japan earlier this week. Pattinson joined New Moon director Chris Weitz for a press conference in Japan.

Don't worry, American readers, Rob will make his way back to the States shortly. After all, he's got a movie to promote here, as well as a girlfriend to calm down.

Kristen Stewart recently said she hates fame, which is ironic because she wouldn't have met Pattinson unless she were a celebrity; which means she wouldn't have the chance to wake up next to this face every morning...

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."
