Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Victoria Serious About Post-Baby Diet
Victoria and David Beckham are obviously thrilled at the arrival at new daughter Harper and the family time they are having at their beach-side house in Malibu but Victoria is certainly not sitting back and relaxing. The mum of four is getting in shape for her fashionista return at New York fashion week next month. Victoria, 37, knows that she will be the centre of attention when she unveils her latest collection on September 11 and she wants to look her best. ‘Victoria has locked herself away at her Malibu holiday home where she has imposed a strict food regime,’ a well-placed source has revealed. ‘She has instructed her chef to do a no-carb, no-sugar diet of just green vegetables and low-fat proteins.’ It’s not as though the Spice Girl piled on the weight while she was pregnant, she remained very svelte, hardly showing until the final stages. Sources in LA revealed that she turned to super stylist Rachel Zoe for advice on how to remain slim during pregnancy. ‘Rachel has a reputation for helping her Hollywood friends maintain their size-zero frames, and thinks of herself as quite an expert when it comes to keeping trim and healthy during pregnancy,’ said a friend of Rachel’s. ‘She had her first baby, Skylar, on March 23 and gained hardly any extra weight Victoria has been eagerly listening to her advice and they have become firm friends.’ Lets hope she doesn’t take the advice too far!

Is Jessica Simpson Expecting?
It seems that while her ex-husband Nick Lachey may have beat her down the aisle, marrying long-term girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo last month,  Jessica Simpson, 31, may have beaten them to having a baby. The actress and singer  who got engaged to American footballer Eric Johnson, also 31, last November has yet to confirm her wedding date but says they intend to be married before Christmas.  And it seems that they may have another announcement to make before Christmas if the rumour mill is correct. Jessica was seen in a loose fitting sequined dress this week leaving a photoshoot with what witnesses say was a definite sign of a bump. Only last month she had to deny she was pregnant after being spied in a clingy dress with a rounded belly. Normally we would just put the slight belly down to having a carb lunch but this being Hollywood and with Jessica getting ready for her big day, we would normally expect weight loss not gain! Despite the denials last time, the couple do have definite plans to have a family together. ‘I definitely see myself having a family with Eric, so that’s exciting to think about,’ she said. Well whether they are or aren’t expecting a bundle of joy right now, we hope that they will both be happy second time around.

Madge Returns To The What She Does Best
It’s great news for Madonna fans as the queen of pop returns to the studio to make a new album with her Ray Of Light producer William Orbit. Madonna hasn’t released  an album since 2008 and hasn’t had a US number one single since Music in 2000 and so she will be eager to grab that number one spot again. The album which is due out next year will also be followed by a world tour which is sure to please music lovers around the globe. But the music isn’t the only new thing that Madonna has coming up. Madonna has made a return to the directors chair with her new film W.E. about the relationship between King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallace Simpson. Her first stab at directing comedy Filth and Wisdom was savaged by critics and sunk at the box office just as her acting career was before that. With this new £18million romantic drama, she is hoping to redeem herself. W.E. is about the nature of true love, and the sacrifices and compromises that are often made.‘ she said. ‘I’ve wanted to tell this story for a very long time, and bringing it to life has been a great adventure for me.’ However while the film pictorials is beautiful in the vein of a Chanel commercial, test audiences seemed to think it was all style and no substance, some key elements are never explained,’ said my source at the screening last week. ‘The script is really very so-so,’ a source at the screening revealed. ‘It’s all about the surface and the styling. There’s no real narrative, and no heart.’ Maybe her return to music will be more successful.

Bachelor Clooney Dating Again
As one of the world’s most famous bachelors, we knew he wasn’t going to be on the market for long but less than a month after parting from his Italian girlfriend of two years Elisabetta Canalis, Clooney has been snapped up. The 50-year-old actor has reportedly been getting cozy with former wrestling star Stacy Keibler, 31. The pair first met at an Oscar party in 2006 when George approached Stacy who was on the current season of Dancing With The Stars and said: ‘You’re so great. You should win.’ Five years on and Stacy is enjoying an Italian vacation at Clooney’s Lake Como villa. ‘I’m in heaven,’ Keibler tweeted July 8 while she was there. ‘I am the luckiest girl in the world.’ However his friends are still waiting to see whether this will be more than just a summer fling saying that they are simply ‘spending time together’ and ‘having fun’. Even if it is just a fun fling, we can think of worse ways to enjoy the summer!
