Some comeback performances are so moving, they leave you longing for the days of yore and simultaneously marveling at how good the stars still are.

Anyone who saw Whitney Houston on Good Morning America and its summer concert series this week knows that was not one of those comebacks. No.

Voice cracking constantly and leaning on the audience to hit the high notes, Whitney reminded us that some singing careers are better left to history.

But she still looked good at least. Click to enlarge photos of Whitney Houston below, comforted by the fact that you don't have to hear any of the "music" ...

Lisa Loeb and Roey Hershkovitz are pregnant. Well, she is pregnant. They are expecting. However you want to put it, the newlyweds are going to be parents.

"They're excited to welcome their first child this winter," says Loeb's manager.

Lisa Loeb, 41, and Roey Hershkovitz, 31, music production supervisor for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, met in 2006 at a business meeting and were engaged last November. They got married just a few months after that.

Their winter wonderland-themed wedding, featuring all-white centerpieces and tiny deer figurines, was held at Manhattan restaurant Brasserie 8 1/2 in January.

The singer said the evening was "the most fun night ever."

Loeb launched her career in 1994 with the number one single "Stay (I Missed You)." She heads up her own non-profit, the Camp Lisa Foundation, which helps underprivileged children attend summer camp. Congrats on the baby news!

According to sources, Kristen Stewart is a "young woman in love" on the set of Eclipse.

That's great and all, but can we get an update on the actual shooting of the third Twilight Saga film?!?

Thanks to Jackson Rathbone, the answer is an Obama-like: Yes, we can! The actor that plays Jasper Hale spoke to MTV this week about his character's role in the movie. Here are excerpts from the interview:

On Jasper's Civil War backstory: I get to shoot some Civil War stuff, and I'm also going to shoot a lot of fighting scenes.

On fighting techniques in Eclipse: We're talking about newborn vampires that can't control their urges — they can't really think very quickly. So if you just let them go to their instincts and evade and attack them from side to side, you could get them; but if you try and go after them through force, they're going to win every time. So it's all about evasion.

On the scene where Jasper becomes a vampire: It's going to be great. I've been studying up a lot on the Civil War and that era. It really was a crazy time. It was all-out war on our own turf and between countrymen... It's an interesting time to see when Jasper was actually human and what his human form was and, when he gets turned, how intense and how dark he is. Then [we'll see] his realization of what he's become, him finding Alice and being redeemed by love.

Eclipse will be released on June 30, 2010. Seven months prior to that, New Moon hits theaters on November 20.

Which are you more excited for?

The rumored romance between Candice Crawford, beauty queen and sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, and Dallas Cowboys star Tony Romo is now confirmed!

Or at least reported by a whole bunch of other sources!

The Chicago Sun-Times, Dallas Morning News, New York Daily News and others are saying that the football star has moved on from Jessica Simpson with Candice.

One could call her a younger, prettier and in all likelihood smarter and less annoying version of the alleged actress and singer he dated for over a year until recently.

Us Weekly even quotes a source as saying Candice Crawford is "not exactly happy that it's out [in the media], but they weren't trying to hide either." Okay then.

"They've gone out to dinner in Dallas a bunch."

Guess that means she's dating Tony Romo!

Candice Crawford and Tony Romo make a cute couple.

Candice, 22, was crowned Miss Missouri 2008 (she went to school there), and is a native of Dallas along with Gossip Girl actor Chace, who's pals with Tony Romo.

Talk about mixing business and pleasure, too: She reports on high school sports for Dallas station 33TV and also hosts a weekend Dallas Cowboys sports show.

Looks like she'll be getting the inside scoop in more ways than one from now on, if you know what we mean! NOTE: We don't even know what we mean by that.

Forget Jasmine Fiore for a moment. There was another victim in the Ryan Jenkins murder/suicide rampage:

Reality star Megan Hauserman.

Reality TV Addicted

Due to the fact that one of the contestants on her latest series, Megan Wants a Millionaire, turned out to be a cold-blooded killer, VH1 canceled the dating competition before a winner was crowned.

This left Hauserman without a reality TV vehicle for the first time in ages. But that will soon change for the former Beauty and the Geek, Rock of Love with Bret Michaels, I Love Money and Rock of Love: Charm School contestant. She's getting yet another program.

“VH1 is giving Megan her own reality show,” a source told Radar Online, adding that the network "promised Megan her own show... that’s how they bought her silence.”

Really? We're guessing her silence could have been bought with a free tanning session and a manicure.

The insider said Hauserman won't anchor another dating-themed series because, well, you saw what happened the last time she tried that. Instead, look for some sort of unscripted program that will likely involve very little clothing.

Former teen heart throb Andrew Keegan is being accused by a model named Kristi Parrales of "launching a campaign of terror against her" for more than a year.

In court documents filed Monday in L.A. County Superior Court, Parrales says Keegan physically attacked her on two separate occasions, most recently July 4.

Kristi Parrales says Keegan "threw me across the living room in front of witnesses" and says she suffered scars on her back and bruises from the incident.

Parrales also claims the Camp Nowhere star has been rolling into her place of business recently and "calling [Kristi] names and giving [her] evil looks."

Kristi Parrales and Andrew Keegan in happier, non-threatening times.

Kristi claims that Keegan came back just last week, and that when she had the bouncer throw him out, the actor found her car and slashed her tires.

She asked a judge to keep Andrew Keegan 100 yards away from her.

Andrew tells TMZ that Kristi is simply a vindictive ex girlfriend. He said Kristi watched his dog this weekend while he was in Las Vegas ... and that he was still in Vegas when she claims he slashed her tires. Stay tuned there.

Six days after his death, celebrity spinmaster DJ AM was laid to rest in a private ceremony Wednesday at Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary in L.A.

The funeral service honoring the DJ (a.k.a. Adam Goldstein), who died last week of an apparent drug overdose, was attended by family and friends.

Ocean's 11 star Scott Caan and DJ Jazzy Jeff were on hand, along with his girlfriend Haley Wood (pictured), Nicole Richie, and Joel and Benji Madden.

DJ AM's close pal Travis Barker (also pictured) was present as well:

The Blink-182 drummer - wearing dark sunglasses and a pin-striped suit with slick-backed hair - paid his respects and threw dirt on the coffin.

The service was held in the mortuary and then moved outside around 4 p.m.

A procession of cars followed the hearse to the back of one of L.A.'s most prominent Jewish cemeteries for the somber burial, which lasted 15 minutes.

A memorial for the DJ AM, who was 36, is also set for Thursday.

The event will take place at the Hollywood Palladium at 7 p.m., and "the format of the evening will be in the style of an open 12-step meeting."

"Adam's friends both from his life in recovery, as well as those from other areas of his life, are welcome," the invitation reads.

DJ AM was found dead in his apartment last Friday.

This actually isn't very funny.

Sure, Megan Fox says some crazy, hilarious things sometimes. Like stating that women have power over men due to the sheer existence of their vaginas.

No Botox Here!

But the beautiful actress is apparently aware of her offbeat mental status, so much so that she's worried about ending up like the previous generation's top sex symbol.

“I basically read every book ever written about Marilyn Monroe,” Fox told some magazine called Wonderland. “I could end up like that because I constantly struggle with the idea that I think I’m a borderline personality - or that I have bouts of mild schizophrenia. I definitely have some kind of mental problem and I haven’t pinpointed what it is.”

For the record: Monroe died of a drug overdose at age 36. She battled bipolar disorder for most of her life.

Even the biggest Megan Fox hater would likely not want her to end up like Monroe. Let's hope she gets help before it's too late.

Let's also hope she keeps posing like this in random publications. Fox might battle mild bouts of schizophrenia, but she also deals with intense bouts of hotness everyday...

If there was any doubt that Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey, who called it quits back in June, are now back together, well, this would sort of be it!

Following a make-out session last week, the sexy pair are making no attempts to hide their rekindled romance, according to the ever-reliable OK!.

Heck, earlier this afternoon, as a matter of fact, Nick and Vanessa grabbed lunch - and each other! - at the N.Y. City comfort food favorite Duke’s.

Witnesses say the couple were holding hands over the table as they ate and chatted. “They’re definitely back on,” one witness said of their behavior.

Last weekend, the former husband of Jessica Simpson and former MTV VJ made news by locking lips at a club. It's so back on, it's not even funny.

It's only a matter of time until we see Part II of this classic pool display ...

Vanessa Mannillo climbs atop Nick Lachey. In the pool. Hot.

The marriage of Kate and Jon Gosselin cracked under the pressure of raising many kids and changing priorities under the bright lights of low-rent reality TV.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar says they won't follow the same path.

Jim Bob, Michelle Duggar, Family

The couple, who have 18 kids together and are expecting #19 next year, want people to understand that everlasting happiness in a marriage can survive.

No matter how many kids you have.

"One of our goals is to encourage families and parents that marriage can be strong even if they have kids," Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, 44 and 42, say.

Jim Bob, Michelle and the absolutely enormous Duggar family.

The Tontitown, Ark., couple credit a few key relationship rules:

  • Make time for each other. "We have a weekly date, even if it is just to take a walk in the park," says Jim Bob. "We will go out to lunch or dinner and talk together about the kids, upcoming events, what we have coming up."
  • Try not to be critical. "It is easy to think of things that are bothering you more often than things that are wonderful," Michelle says. "It's important to remember those things about your spouse and think about those things."
  • Forgiveness is essential: "We asked an Amish couple who had been married 50 years what the most important thing to know was, and they told us, the most important thing to say is, 'I was wrong and will you please forgive me.'"

Jim Bob praises Michelle Duggar for her "soft response" and kind nature in raising their 18 children, and anyone who has seen the Duggars on 18 Kids and Counting (Tuesdays on TLC) knows their home is filled with praise and encouragement.

"We have purposed to compliment our children – we do that on outward beauty and what is wonderful about them inside. We do that with each other as well."

The Duggars have written a book about their experiences with raising lots of children, living debt free and home-schooling, The Duggars: 20 and Counting!
