Beyonce and Jay-Z name baby girl Blue Ivy Carter: Reports

Chartreuse Algae must have been taken.

Congratulations to new mama Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z, and happy belated B’Day to baby Blue Ivy, who was born by Destiny (C-section) in NYC Saturday. Blue Ivy may sound like a detergent, trendy liqueur, or curious shade of denim (and surely within a few months all of these products will exist), but at least her parents won’t have to whip up an imaginary pop star name like “Lakoda Rayne” when she’s older.

Blue Ivy. The more I type it, the more I LIKE it. Maybe I’ve had too many shots of it!

Of course it wasn’t an easy road to Blue Ivy — when the news first broke this morning, people, confused by the genius they were beholding, passed along the baby’s name as Ivy Blue. (Thank you Gwyneth Paltrow, who swooped in this morning with a clarifying tweet. Goop in a pinch!) So already — along with “Aunty Gaga,” “Uncle Kanye,” and “Uncle Chris Brown” — #NamesBetterThanIvyBlue is trending on Twitter. Which is ridiculous, because what name could possibly be better than that? Okay, gotta go buy some jeans.

Still pregnant Jessica Simpson signs deal with Weight Watchers: Too little, too soon?

What’s The Price of Beauty? About $3 million if you’re Jessica Simpson. That’s how much the expectant mother is reportedly earning to in a deal with Weight Watchers. It seems Simpson will head directly from the delivery room to the treadmill this spring. All credit to Simpson for taking back control of her body, but couldn’t she have at least let the afterbirth dry? What message does this sprint back to her pre-baby body send to other new moms?

'Modern Family': Has Toddler Lily won your heart yet?

Now that the new season of Modern Family is well underway, it’s time we took a moment to discuss the show’s newest addition: Toddler Lily (a.k.a Aubrey Anderson-Emmons).

Show creators Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd have wisely refrained from shining too bright a spotlight on the newest member of the Pritchett clan — possibly because she inexplicably aged two years during the summer hiatus, but who cares when the show is this good. In last night’s episode, she showed up only briefly to ask Daddy Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) for some raisins, forcing him to confront the dirty kitchen left by Daddy Cam (Eric Stonestreet).

We got our best look at Lily 2.0 in episode 2, where her hostile attitude towards a new baby drove the Cam/Mitchell plotline. READ FULL STORY

America has spoken: Casey Anthony and 'Octomom' top the 'Most Hated' list -- but who lands the top spot?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Two questionable mothers walk into a poll… In a survey of who has incurred the most rancor of the American public, Casey Anthony won the dubious honor of “The Most Hated Person in America.” Nadya “Octomom” Suleman came in a disrespectable third place. See who else made the list after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Jessica Alba brings Jimmy 'How are babies made?' Kimmel to birthing class

Though she’s made her name primarily in popcorn flicks, Jessica Alba does like to exercise her funny bone now and again. The nine-months-pregnant actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night and asked the funnyman to step in for her husband Cash Warren at birthing class. From pears-as-no-no-parts to perineal massage, Kimmel was unable to restrain himself from constantly dishing out snarky asides and blurting out the word “vagina” at the unflappable instructor. The results were predictably mortifying and hilarious. See the full video — and learn the baby’s name! — after the jump. READ FULL STORY

'Pregnant in Heels' star Rosie Pope's iVillage blog: Best read while imagining her crazy accent

One way to make Rosie Pope’s mommy blog on iVillage incredibly entertaining? Imagine the Bravo star reading it out loud in her curiously appealing accent. Believe me, it really makes reading about how to keep the post-baby heat in a relationship enjoyably trippy.

After the Pregnant in Heels premiere last week, I stumbled across a Tweet from Pope in which she described her accent as “southern English.” But I really couldn’t care less how you define it. I just want it — even with the slight lisp — because it’s so unique. If I had her accent, I think I’d immediately become a more interesting person — and I tend to believe I need all the help I can get in that area. READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock': How Tina Fey's pregnancy won't change Liz Lemon


Revel in the glory of motherhood, nerds. Tina Fey has a bun in the oven. But how will the Bossypants author’s recently announced pregnancy affect our pal Liz Lemon? The folks at 30 Rock have yet to reveal if or how Fey’s news will affect the show, but when you really think about it, it doesn’t really matter: Lemon has vaguely resembled a pregnant woman for the last five years (except for the minor detail of getting her period for 61 straight days). While you might be wondering how Fey can work her bundle of joy into next season’s plot, here’s a quick list of ways her pregnancy won’t change a thing, as it already fits in with Lemon’s trademarked quirks:

• Whether she’s wearing it as a joke or not, the slanket aficionado likes her bi-curious fashion choices and DIY finds (Duane Reade bags as underwear) on the larger side, which gives Fey infinite room to hide a growing belly and prevent any dirty looks from that office gossip Brian Williams.  READ FULL STORY

Super Bowl XLV: Best and worst commercials?

Presenting… Your Super Bowl Commercials of 2011, brought to you by Eminem. He LOST HIMSELF in not one but two major ad campaigns this year. During the first quarter, Claymation Eminem quenched his thirst with a refreshing Brisk iced tea; then just before halftime, super-intense human Eminem delivered a cross between a eulogy and a giant “eff you, pay attention” on behalf of the city of Detroit. And you thought he didn’t do commercials.

Meanwhile, Ozzy Osbourne finally had to find out what a Bieber was, Adrien Brody serenaded some crying/orgasmic women (Stella Artois), Faith Hill’s rack is huge (Teleflora), Timothy Hutton is really, really into Tibetan fish curry (Groupon.com), and Kim Kardashian’s ass (Shape-Ups) is ass usual. Plus, so many movie trailers, including J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s Super 8, Terra Nova, Thor, Cowboys & Aliens — starring Danny Craig and Indy Ford — Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and a first look at Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger. My five favorite commercials, after the break. READ FULL STORY

Matt Damon on 'True Grit,' his charity work, and raising four girls

Ray Tamarra/FilmMagic.com

Is it me, or is Matt Damon the busiest guy in America? He’s got two movies (Hereafter and True Grit) out this fall, he devotes much of his time to the charity he co-founded (Water.org), and as of last month, he’s got four daughters. Recently, Damon put aside some time to talk to EW about all the things that are keeping him plenty busy — but plenty passionate — at the moment.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Why is Water.org so important to you?
: Every 15 seconds, a kid is dying because he or she doesn’t have access to clean water and sanitation. It’s pretty staggering. In America, you can just walk over to the faucet and get a drink of water. So it’s hard to wrap your brain around the notion that there are little girls who can’t go to school because they’re spending their days gathering water. Dehydration is a ridiculous way to die in this day and age.

Did having kids yourself make you more passionate about this issue?
I feel like it’s deepened. It’s very hard to go to these places like India, Ethiopia, and Kenya and not connect to all of these kids as your own. Once you’ve had children, it’s very hard to turn your back on a child.

Judging from the trailer for True Grit, it seems like you’re the movie’s comic relief. READ FULL STORY

Lunchtime Poll: Why is Shiloh cooler than you?

Shiloh-bootsImage Credit: Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage.comWe are not typically in the habit of posting pics of celebrity munchkins, but this one of Shiloh has sent me over the edge. It sets in stone something I’ve suspected for a few months but have been embarrassed to bring up: Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is so much cooler than me. Than you. Than all of us.

Look at her boots! Her Yo, Gabba Gabba! backpack! That prop that looks like a medical walking stick but is actually a wooden sword she picked out from a souvenir shop at the Budapest airport!

It’s official. I don’t know why any of us even bother.
