Carrie Underwood Goes to the Dogs

When some people let the world know they’re with child, they do it simply. A phone call to their parents, perhaps an announcement card in the mail, maybe even a simple email or Facebook message.

If you’re Carrie Underwood, that’s far too mundane.

The Queen of Country took to Twitter yesterday to announce that she and hubby Mike Fisher are expecting their first child in the spring of 2015.

And how did she do it?

By dressing up her two dogs in T-shirts that announced they were going to be a big brother and a big sister and posing with them. And they made the announcement in honor of “Labor” Day.

Get it? Because labor is the way pregnancy usually ends, while pushing the new child – in this case, sibling to a couple of canines – out into the world.

Brangelina's Wedding Album - People Magazine Has It

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie said they wouldn’t get married until everyone could get married. But it looks like they relaxed that standard a little bit.

It’s old news now that they got married secretly in France a week or so ago. Now the news is that many of their wedding pictures can be seen in the latest edition of People Magazine.

All of their kids participated in the wedding, according to reports. Their two oldest sons walked mom down the aisle. Two of the girls tossed flower petals. And the other two children were ring bearers. Plus, Angelina had her dress designer sew artwork by the kids into her wedding veil.

Brad, who wore a suit out of his closet – why spring for a tuxedo, right? – but ended up having to borrow a tie from his son.

The magazine hits the newsstands tomorrow. So plan to spend a little extra time in the checkout line at the market, checking out the photos.

Meanwhile, you can check out this selection from Instagram, posted the day of the wedding.

Just Call Me Kendall

Kendall Jenner is no longer using her surname. She’s going simply by Kendall.

This isn’t anything new, she says. It’s just that the media picked up on it recently, that’s all.

She’s been simply Kendall for about a year now, to make things easier for her as she embarks on a modeling and acting career.

When she was burdened by the surname, it came with the Jenner-Kardashian baggage. “People didn’t want to take a chance on me,” she told Teen Vogue, “I think because I was sort of known.”

Not so much that she was known – just that she was known to be part of the Kardashian Klan.

Of course, she’s still Instagramming like a Kardashian…

NudeStock? NuderGate? What Do We Call This?

The internet was buzzing all weekend with the news that nude photos of some top-shelf lady celebs existed and had been posted on-line.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate Upton were two of the victims. According to all reports, their cell phones were hacked and the nude photos lifted from them.

Jennifer’s lawyers call it a “flagrant violation of privacy.” Kate’s lawyers concur, calling it an “outrageous violation of privacy.”

Singer Ariana Grande categorically denied that alleged nude pictures of her were authentic. Actress Victoria Justice says the same thing.

Actress Mary E. Winstead took to Twitter to respond to people who were actually looking at the pictures.
  Let’s put it this way – whoever this hacker is, he or she has made an awful lot of enemies.

A Kim Trim

Kim Kardashian trimmed about three inches of her hair over the weekend.

Her fans are probably camped out near her mansion, hoping that the Santa Ana winds will blow a lock or two their way.

A treasured keepsake, for sure.

Someone’s going to have to explain to me why a Kardashian haircut qualifies as news.

Right after you explain to me why I’m writing this…

Usher's Official Butt Check

Okay, we can admit it. Kim Kardashian’s rear bumper is probably her best asset.

It’s certainly helped her get where she is today – rich and famous for virtually no reason whatsoever.

Many people suggest that Kim’s had work done on her derriere – implants, perhaps.

Check out this funny and dizzying butt-checking moment that US Weekly on-line captured at last week's VMAs

Singer Usher definitely looks like he’s checking for unnatural resources.

Gas Prices Keep Going Down!

The gasoline market doesn’t seem to be reacting to tensions in the Middle East and the Ukraine.

Instead, they’re dropping consistently – and according to GasBuddy, they’re at their lowest national average since 2010, just $3.45 a gallon for regular.

Your results may vary, of course, but generally, that part of the economy is in good shape.

Which means you won’t have to spend as much in gas to go pick up the every-more-expensive bread and milk this week.

Hey, it’s the little things…

Of course, the folks at Funny or Die have a slightly different take on the situation. Check out this KFOD exclusive report…
