'Bachelorette' Jen Schefft has a baby on board

Jen SchefftShe didn’t find her happily ever after in her two stints on reality television, but that didn’t stop Jen Schefft from finding love, and soon, motherhood.

The former “Bachelorette” star – we first saw her on “The Bachelor” - is pregnant.

The 33-year-old Chicagoan confirmed to Us Weekly that she is expecting her first child with trader Joe Waterman, her husband since last May.

“I was shocked. I thought it would take more time,” the public relations executive told the weekly magazine. “I took three tests because I didn’t believe it was true!”

Conan O'Brien has a very Leno-like Ludacris impression

Conan O'BrienRemember when a video snippet of Conan O’Brien's stop at the Google HQ showed the comedian making a subtle dig at Jay Leno and “The Tonight Show”?

Turns out, we hadn’t seen the whole thing.

Google has released the entire video of O’Brien’s visit, and Gawker's Valleywag has kindly cut it down to the most interesting five minutes.

Right off the top, it's apparent that O’Brien hasn’t lost his ability to impersonate Leno, although he probably should since he’s reportedly contractually obligated to not make any disparaging remarks against the “Tonight Show” host.

Dennis Quaid eats lots of McDonald's to look like a former prez!

When you think of people who resemble former President Bill Clinton, I bet actor Dennis Quaid doesn't come to mind. But what if he packed on 35 pounds, shaved his eyebrows and wore a silver-gray wig? Could you then picture him looking like former President Clinton? That's exactly what you'll see in the upcoming HBO movie "The Special Relationship." Quaid transforms completely with southern drawl and mannerisms down pat. He also consumes lots of junk food in the movie.

"I used a wig and shaved off my eyebrows because Clinton doesn't hardly have any eyebrows," said Quaid. "I also gained 35 pounds by eating McDonald's like Clinton. I ate a lot of Happy Meals, and I loved those 10 piece Chicken McNuggets."

"The Special Relationship," which airs on HBO May 29th, details the political rise of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair (played by Michael Sheen) his relationship with then president Bill Clinton and what happened behind closed doors as both men dealt with problems in their respective countries and personal lives.

Betty White, Megan Fox to duel it out for ‘Best WTF Moment’

The MTV Movie Awards are like the more entertaining younger cousin to the Oscars and the Golden Globes for many reasons, but mainly because the same movies that don't get much love from critics are also the very ones that are up for multiple Golden Popcorn statues.

This year’s round of nominees are no different, with "Twilight: New Moon" showing up in nearly almost every category and "Obsessed" getting a nomination for "Best Fight."

Sandra Bullock's "The Proposal" is also up for a few movie awards, but the "Best WTF Moment" nomination isn’t for Sandy or her co-star, Ryan Reynolds – it’s for Betty White.

They filed for divorce within minutes of each other in Los Angeles County Superior Court a month ago.

"We love our children, we love each other, we love being a family," they said in a statement. "That is all that matters to us. We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other." FULL POST

‘Scrubs,’ ‘Better off Ted’ off the air; ‘Heroes’ return a maybe

TV networks are busy working on the fall lineups they will announce next week to advertisers, and in order to make room for potentially hot shows, networks are cleaning house.

Over at ABC, “Scrubs,” “Better off Ted,” “The Deep End” and “The Forgotten” are all done for while the possibility of another season of “V” is still unknown, according to the L.A. Times. “Flash Forward” is another series that seems to be coming to an end, but is still a question mark for the network.

Embattled NBC is picking up the series procedural drama “Chase” from Jerry Bruckheimer. The show, which follows a team of U.S. Marshals chasing down fugitives, has been added to NBC’s other recent pickups, including J.J. Abrams'“Undercover,” a drama about a couple who gets back in the CIA game.
