Beyonce on the best thing about being pregnant

Beyonce is finally slowing down now that she's expecting, and she says she's having a grand time doing it....but not by indulging in cravings you may have read about.

The 30-year-old entertainer told Katie Couric on "20/20" Friday that she hasn't been chowing down on ice cream with hot chili sauce as some gossip has claimed.

"I've read that I like ketchup on everything," she says, noting that's also not true. "I was on a plane and the flight attendant came and was like, 'I have your hot sauce and pickles and bananas.' And I'm like, 'That is absolutely disgusting, what are you doing?' And he was like, 'I read it on the Internet,'" she laughed.

Utah's replica of 'Up' home sells for $400,000

Disney/Pixar's award-winning 2009 film "Up" made such an impact on one California couple, they've shelled out around $400,000 to live in a Utah-based replica of the movie's brightly colored house.

Reports Salt Lake City's KSL, the ability to live in the real-life version of the "Up" home is a fantasy realized for Lynette and Clinton Hamblin.

"When we heard about it over the summer, we thought, 'Oh, that's probably a multi-million [dollar] home," Lynette Hamblin told KSL. "We didn't think that it would be attainable. So, when it all fell into place...it was a dream come true."

Dane Cook ready to pause stand-up, try new things

Dane Cook seems to have just as many fans as he has detractors, and for the latter category, this is probably good news:  The successful comedian tells the L.A. Times that he's unsure if he'll return to stand-up.

"I don't want to say I've retired, but this is an important time to shift my energy to something new. If I'm going to do stand-up again...I want to feel like I'm lending something to it," he says.

So in the meantime, Cook is angling for different opportunities, such as the new drama "Answers to Nothing," in which he plays an unfaithful husband in an unhappy marriage.

'X Factor' judges receive threats after Drew's dismissal?

Fans were not happy to see "X Factor" contestant Drew Ryniewicz go home last week, and they seem to be directing their ire at judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.

For example, commenter Mary wrote in on the "X Factor" recap Friday, "The judges need to be fired, e[s]pecially the girls. The whole show is a joke. Drew should have stayed. Nicole is...a fake, Paula is a ditz. I am so sick of her and will never watch this show again until she and Nicole are gone. Simon is the best entertainment ever."

It seems some are taking their dislike of the female half of "X Factor's" judges panel quite a few steps further - TMZ reports that Paula and Nicole received angry and violent threats via Twitter and Facebook, with at least one telling the two women to "go die."

At 15, Abigail Breslin is already a star in her own right, but that doesn't mean she isn't capable of a fangirl moment.

Speaking to CNN on Sunday, Breslin recalled the moment she met her celebrity crush - who also happens to be her "New Year's Eve" co-star - Zac Efron.

“I met Zac Efron yesterday, and I'm just going to say, I cried a little bit afterwards and beforehand - just a little bit," Breslin said. "It was kind of a big deal; it was kind of major."
