JESSICA SIMPSON'S OOPS BABY IS GOING TO BE A BOY!: JESSICA SIMPSON was doing the talk show rounds yesterday, and made two revelations. The first, on the Ellen Degeneres Show, was that her second pregnancy was an accident.


"Apparently protection was just thrown out the window!" she told America's favorite talk show host. She added that she and fiancé Eric Johnston are "happy" but they "were definitely extremely shocked" to find she was pregnant just seven months after the birth of their first.

Rumor has it, Jess is expecting a boy and she sort of confirmed it on the show. Ellen held up two different onesies as a gift for Maxwell; one said “I ‘heart’ my baby sister” and another said “I ‘heart’ my baby brother.” “You can’t have both,” Ellen told Jess. “You can only have one.” Ellen eventually let her out of the decision, but gave Jess the “brother” one saying, “that’s my guess okay.” Jess then took the onesie and said, “Maybe I’ll take this one…you never know.”

Later that day, Jessica was a guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and it was at that appearance that she accidentally revealed it is going to be a boy. She said, quote, "It's a totally different pregnancy. I just feel awful, I've been vomiting . . . the crazy thing is I never knew a wiener could make me nauseous." At that point, she realized she goofed, and added, quote, "I can't believe I just did that, that was not planned."

TAYLOR SWIFT CONFESSES FEAR OF BEING INTOLERABLE: The TAYLOR SWIFT pity party shows no sign of slowing down. Swift, who graces the cover of the April issue of InStyle UK, confesses to worrying about ending up “alone.”

"I don’t wanna end up being awful and intolerable,” she says (too late). “Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine...the typical Hollywood sad cliché of the poor lonely starlet with no one because she put up all these walls and didn’t trust anyone. That’s my fear.”

TIM MCGRAW HAS BEEN HIDING 'SECRET SON' FROM AN INSANELY JEALOUS FAITH HILL: According to "The National Enquirer", TIM MCGRAW has a "secret son", 23-year-old Tyler Zarbo. But it's not as salacious as it sounds. See, he's not Tim's biological child. He's the son of Tim's former fiancée, Kristine Donahue. Tim left Kristine for Faith back in the mid '90s.

The "secret" part is that Tim has been supporting Tyler on the down low all these years -- keeping that fact from everyone, including his wife FAITH HILL. The "Enquirer" says he's never told Faith because she's  insanely jealous. "Every time Tim glances at another woman, Faith jumps all over him," says the tabloid's source. "She's never forgotten that Tim broke up with another woman to be with her, and she's worried that he could do it...to her."

As soon as this story got out, Tim's people issued a statement that did not deny Tim's relationship with Tyler, choosing instead to harrumph the parts that show Faith in bad light. Quote, "The 'National Enquirer' story is full of inaccuracies and misrepresentations about Tim and Faith. We aren't going to comment on false statements that appear to have been sensationalized for the purpose of selling tabloid magazines."

LOHAN LUNACY - LINDSAY STICKING WITH INCOMPETENT LAWYER: LINDSAY LOHAN doesn't care what the judge thinks, sources tell TMZ she's sticking with her New York lawyer. Judge James Dabney famously told Mark Heller he was incompetent to practice in California last week and said that if Lindsay wants to keep him, she’ll have to come to court for a hearing to specifically say she’s waiving her right to a competent attorney. Her lying-to-the-cops trial is due to begin March 18th.

Think she looks good? Did you ever find her hot? Discuss.

But Miley went on Twitter yesterday to shoot the rumor down. "I didn't call off my wedding," she wrote, adding, "I am so sick of La. And sick of the lies that come with it." She Tweeted again within a few hours to declare that she was no longer going to use social media to discuss "anything but my music from now on."

Hours after the Tweet was posted, though, Miley was photographed out and about without the huge engagement rock Liam gave her.  Did things change? Is Miley trying to tell us something? Don't look at me, I don't know, silly. The questions were rhetorical. (PHOTO) (PHOTO)
