Ciara Pregnant! and more in This Week's Entertainment

Kerry Washington baby bump

This week proved to be a week full of baby bump surprises! Kerry Washington finally confirmed to the world that she was pregnant at the 2014 Golden Globes and she looked amazing. She flaunted her bump in a white Balenciaga gown and posed for photos clutching her bundle of joy. Although she was nominated, but didn’t snag the Best Actress in a TV Series Drama award, the mom-to-be had plenty to gush about.

In other surprising pregnancy news, Ciara has officially confirmed her pregnancy on "The View!" "In a Nutshell" readers may recall several articles within the past couple of months, in which I’ve strongly believed that CiCi was covering up her "Love on Top." Whether it was her baggy clothes, a fuller face or that beautiful glow that expecting mothers are blessed with, I’d been expecting this announcement for months. Ciara appeared on "The View" on Tuesday morning and when Barbara Walters asked if she had anything to say about the rumors of her being pregnant, CiCi pulled her over coat back and exposed a very round belly. She told the hosts, "I’m so excited. Last year was, like, the best year of my life. Being able to get a fresh start with a new label... and of course the engagement." Congratulations to Ciara and fianceé Future!

Shakira and Rihanna have collaborated on an upbeat pop track called "Can’t Remember to Forget You." Photos of the Rihanna laid across Shakira’s lap circulated around the net a few days ago and now we know why. Both ladies brought their unique and exotic flare to the song and I simply cannot wait to see the visual. RiRi is currently in Brazil to do a big photoshoot with Shakira.

I must say that I loved Gabourey Sidibe before, but after her response to those who criticized her look at the Golden Globes, I love her even more. The "American Horror Story: Coven" actress and Golden Globe nominee donned a custom champagne Michael Costello dress and Twitter users bashed her for hours on end over her choice of wardrobe. There were shots taken at her weight and health, but Ms. Gabby decided to play it cool in the SHADE by tweeting an epic response. She tweeted: "To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK" You had better read Ms. Gabby!

kanye punches teen  

It’s been a while since we had a crazy Kanye West story. This could be due to the fact that he swore that his last rant, weeks ago would be the rant to end all rants. However, Mr. West made no promises about keeping his hands to himself. Reports allege that Kanye has assaulted someone else. He allegedly punched an 18-year-old guy for calling his fianceé Kim a "n*gger lover" in a chiropractor’s waiting room in Beverly HIlls. Apparently, Kanye was not there at the time that the exchange between the teen and Kim occurred, but he showed up afterwards and Kim caught him up to speed. So here’s the skinny: Kanye and Kim were in Beverly Hills and were swarmed by the paparazzi. The teen came to Kim’s rescue and held the door open for her so that she could get into the medical building. The teen then said "F**k these fa**ot a** n*ggers" (referring to the paparazzi). Kim then told him that it wasn’t cool to use that word and the teen allegedly screamed at her: "F**k you b*tch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n*gger lover, stupid slut." Kim then waited for Kanye to walk into the office and that is when Kanye punched the guy. Kim was heard screaming "We have it all on tape." The fight was broken up, but the teen would still like to press charges. My piece of advice is this: refer to yourself with the respect that you’d like others to show (i.e. Kanye’s "N*ggas in Paris" song). I’m not saying that the teen’s behavior was appropriate or okay, but this verbal turned physical situation could have easily been avoided.
