What Do Pop Tarts, Fried Chicken and Red Hots Have In Common?

Katie Holmes Vanessa Lachey Rebecca Romijn Hilary Duff Jessica Alba Jessica Simpson Tori Spelling

Pickles and ice cream may be the typical pregnancy cravings, but Hollywood’s finest are proof positive that the strange urges don’t stop there.

For Katie Holmes, cupcakes were the one snack that remained on her mind throughout her pregnancy with daughter Suri Cruise, now six. And she wasn’t particular about where she satisfied her sweet tooth: the former Dawson’s Creek star is known to be a patron at Sprinkles, Georgetown Cupcakes and Magnolia Bakery.

It looks like her love for baked goods was passed on to her offspring: Suri’s favorite indulgence is — you guessed it — cupcakes. They both love them so much, in fact, that the two were spotted decorating their own cakes for Holmes’ 34th birthday at Sugar and Plumm in NYC.

Jessica Simpson, meanwhile, had a hankering for Pop Tarts during her pregnancy with daughter Maxwell. She tweeted, “I had a buttered Pop Tart this morning, I’m giving in to my cravings.”

Another starlet who had a serious sweet tooth during her pregnancy was Hilary Duff. She craved all sorts of candies, but Red Hots held a special place in her heart while baby Luca was on board.

They certainly aren’t the only celebs had unusual pregnancy cravings. Which starlet hankered for fried chicken, and who only wanted ham-and-cheese sandwiches? Click through the gallery above to find out!

Babies Before Marriage: The New Norm in Hollywood (PHOTOS)

First comes baby, then comes marriage? That’s certainly the case for many of today’s hottest Hollywood couples.

Indeed, everyone from Jessica Simpson to Kourtney and Kim Kardashian are putting family first, opting to have a kid or two before deciding when to actually walk down the aisle, if ever.

Of course, the concept of having babies before marriage isn’t entirely foreign. Just look at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who over the years have given birth to and adopted enough kids to fill Noah’s Arc — and they still haven’t set an official date (that we know of).

Still, the trend has certainly grown into something relatively common and substantial — enough to suggest that certain social norms and traditions may ultimately be a thing of the past.

Who else is putting family first, and marriage second?

Click through the gallery, above, to see a list of celebrities who just gave birth — or are about to pop — without putting a ring on it first.

White House Bans Paparazzi Images of Sasha and Malia Obama on Hawaiian Beach (EXCLUSIVE)

A paparazzo who took photographs of the daughters of President Barack Obama walking along a Hawaiian beach last week made a big mistake — at least, in the eyes of the Oval Office.

Because as soon as the images of Sasha and Malia were sent out to news outlets around the world, the photographer received an official letter from the White House telling him to immediately stop their release, Celebuzz has exclusively learned.

Ironically, the man was waiting for pregnant Hollywood star Jessica Simpson to leave her Kailua Beach retreat in Honolulu County when the Presidential sisters, vacationing with their famous parents in an adjacent property since Dec. 21, came walking-by.

“After he took the photographs, agents from the United States Secret Service came over and asked him for identification,” according to a source who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Celebuzz has chosen not to name the photographer.

“They were nice enough to him and didn’t seize his camera equipment.

“But when he sent the photographs out via the agency’s wire, he received a letter, on a White House letterhead, requesting that the images not be released.”

The letter was from the White House Press Office, the source added.

“It stated that Sasha and Malia’s privacy should be maintained as they were on a private holiday,” the insider told Celebuzz.

“The letter said that other media had been respecting these requirements.”

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are known to be very protective of Malia, 14 and Sasha, 11, previously demanding that the media respect their privacy unless they are attending a public or pre-arranged event.

The Obamas returned to Washington on Sunday after their annual end-of-year visit to the President’s native state.

The family was staying at a 7000 sq ft rental home in the upscale Kailua area that boasts five bedrooms, a media room and a secluded lagoon style pool with tropical waterfalls and a spa.

The President — who spent eight years at Punahou School in Hawaii before he graduated — has his vacation disrupted just after Christmas when he was forced to return to the capital to help broker a solution on the fiscal cliff crisis.

He returned to Hawaii less than an hour after Congress and the White House resolved the fiscal cliff, at the eleventh hour.

Obama boarded Air Force One on Jan. 1 to return to his planned holiday vacation and later reunited with his wife and daughters, who have been vacationing there since just before Christmas.

The president began his family holiday — his first extended personal time outside of Washington since the presidential campaign.

Jennifer Hudson, Jessica Simpson Strut Their Stuff in New Weight Watchers Ad (VIDEO)

Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Simpson put their slim figures on full display in the latest ad campaign for Weight Watchers, released this week.

In the 30-second spot, Hudson, 31, and Simpson, 32, are seen walking down a street as they explain their constant struggles with food and dieting.

“I obsessed about my weight my whole life,” Simpson says.

“I was overweight my whole life. I figured I was just born that way,” adds Hudson. “And then, Weight Watchers.”

And then, things get a little awkward when Hudson and Simpson meet up at a corner and basically smile and stare at each other for five seconds before entering some type of restaurant or cafe.

Bizarre, yes — but at least they look awesome.

Hudson has been with Weight Watchers for over a year, and reportedly lost over 80 pounds in her quest to slim down. Simpson, meanwhile, joined the program earlier this year, but will take a break as she prepares to give birth to her second child.

“[Simpson] will not be following the program during the pregnancy while her weight and well-being are monitored by her obstetrician, as is recommended for any woman during pregnancy,” a spokesperson confirmed in late December.

Simpson confirmed her pregnancy last month on Twitter. She welcomed her first daughter, Maxwell Drew, in May.

Where Stars Are Vacationing This Holiday Season (PHOTOS)

With basically half the country covered in a foot of snow, it’s no wonder celebrities are saying goodbye to winter and hello to the beaches of Hawaii.

Mom-to-be Jessica Simpson was understandably all-smiles when she was photographed walking along the warm sands of Hawaii on Wednesday, where she is currently vacationing with fiance and baby-daddy Eric Johnson.

The photo came just one day after Simpson, 32, officially announced she is pregnant again, just seven months after giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew. Celebuzz first confirmed the happy news on Dec. 19.

Also hitting up Hawaii this holiday season: Ben Stiller, who was snapped on a paddleboard earlier this week.

Of course, this being winter, many Hollywood stars hit the slopes of Aspen, as well, to get in a little ski action before the New Year.

Among the biggest: Mariah Carey, Melanie Griffith and socialite Paris Hilton.

2012 Year in Review: Top 10 Celebrity Newsmakers (PHOTOS)

This past year you’ve been bombarded by emails, overwhelmed with Twitter posts, and called-out in Facebook comments for your stance on Miley’s new ‘do.

You just managed to finish digging through the hefty pile of holiday news alerts only to find that Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together — again.

But you love it. Because a 24/7 news cycle makes the world go ‘round. And none of it would be possible without these celebrity newsmakers.

While many stars graced our headlines this year, it took a special few to flat-out take up real estate.

Kristen Stewart, for one, caused social media networks to implode when she cheated on her oh-so-dreamy Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. She proceeded to cause an even bigger stir after reuniting with R.Patz, dressed in an I don’t give a you-know-what attitude only the biggest of newsmakers knows how to flaunt.

Then there was Kate Middleton, who caused a frenzy of royal proportions when topless photos surfaced of the future queen. Luckily for the Duchess, word of a fetal heir was enough to stifle the outrage and ignite baby fever.

And who could forget Lindsay Lohan? In one year, the troubled starlet was arrested, hit someone with her car, starred in Liz & Dick, and became indebted to the IRS.

It sounds like these guys are ready to ring in 2013.

Without further adieu, we give you the top 10 celebrity newsmakers of 2012—in no particular order.

Bumpin’ and proud!

While Jessica Simpson may have concealed her second pregnancy for a few weeks, now the singer/actress/fashionista is showing off her baby bump and proudly! In a new photo shared on Twitter, Simpson shows off her bare belly.

In this self-portrait, taken with her bedazzled cell phone while in the bathroom, Simpson is aglow and her belly is expanding quickly. She captioned the photo in a way that conveys her joy: “Bumpin’ and proud.”

She confirmed her pregnancy with a Christmas Day photo of daughter Maxwell Drew, who is almost 7 months, in her holiday outfit with the words “Big Sis.” J. Simps and fiancé Eric Johnson didn’t waste any time adding to their family.

Being pregnant agrees with Simpson, and not just because she has spent/will spend the better part of two years with a baby in her belly. She is naturally gorgeous, but this pic, with her hair falling in loose waves, has an earthy, bohemian energy to it. It’s like she can shed all the Hollywood pretense and show off what Mother Nature is doing to her figure.

PopCrushers, do you think little Maxwell Drew is going to have a little brother or sister?

What’s got Demi so elated?

The 20-year-old Unbroken artist has seemingly come into her own after succumbing to her inner demons back in 2010.
