Actress Jessica Alba is officially no longer the hottest pregnant woman in Hollywood. I have proof! ‘Cause Jessica gave birth to a healthy baby girl this weekend named Honor Marie (pronounced: oh-nor). Congrats to her and her husband!

Former 90210 star Tori Spelling is picking up where Jessica Alba left off. Tori and her hubby waddled into an LA hospital this afternoon to have her deliver her new baby via C-section. I’ll have more details later.
9:17 P.M. UPDATE: A source confirms to STAR 98 that Tori and her husband Dean welcomed their second child into the world tonight - a healthy, 6 pound 8 ounce baby girl named Stella Doreen. The same source tells us Doreen is in honor of Dean's deceased mother and Stella "just 'cause they like it." Congrats to both of them!

When in doubt, make a computer-animated family comedy. Kung Fu Panda kicked some serious box office butt this weekend, debuting at the top spot and earning $60 million. The other new flick, Adam Sandler's You Don’t Mess With the Zohan nabbed the number two spot and the previous powerhouses of Indiana Jones and Sex & the City dropped to the three and four spots respectively.

American Idol winner and STAR Artist David Cook learned all about pandering last week. He played a couple of acoustic songs for the annual Wal-Mart Shareholders meeting. That’s right David, make nice with the people who will be selling your album. He played Collective Soul’s "The World I Know" and his first hit single, "Time of My Life".

STAR Artist The Plain White Tees tells us their new album is coming along and STAR listeners can expect it in stores September 12th. By the way, “Hey There Delilah” just became only the fourth song ever to receive 3 million PAID digital downloads.

Work on the new CD from STAR Artist U2 is in the home-stretch. The producer on the album says the band wants the album in stores this fall and this will be “one of the great, innovative records from U2.”

Patrick Swayze says he’s responding well to treatments on his pancreatic cancer, so much so he’ll be starring in a new A&E show called The Beast. He stars as an unorthodox FBI agent who’s under investigation by Internal Affairs. Patrick told us “I have searched for quite a long time to find a character that is this multi-layered, unpredictable and downright entertaining as well as a project this current and cutting-edged.” Look for The Beast on your TV set next year.

So how do A-list stars like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie pack up their stuff and move to France without having paparazzi go through their stuff? Easy. You hire A-list movers. Their like movers for normal people except they do things like deploy 4 or 5 decoy trucks, hire a moving nanny to keep A-list children entertained & under control, and take painstaking notes and pictures documenting where everything was and duplicate that positioning at the new home. Oh and sometimes they use cranes.

Brokeback Mountain apparently ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings. Or ‘til the fat, gay cowboys sing. The controversial and Oscar winning movie is being turned into an opera. It’ll premiere in New York City in 2013.
