  3. Holly Madison is Expecting First Child!

    The former Holly’s World and The Girls Next Door star is leaving the reality TV world and Vegas lifestyle behind, as her dreams of becoming a mother have finally come true.

    Holly Madison, 32, is expexting her first child in March with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella.

    “Holly and I are so excited to announce that we are going to be parents,” Rotella tells People. “We’re in love and counting down the days until we meet our beautiful baby. I can hardly believe how lucky I am.”

    Holly says she’s been lucky, too, adding that it’s been an easy pregnancy so far.

    “I’ve been lucky! No morning sickness, but I do get a little nauseous,” Holly added. “It happens before my show, so I keep ginger ale backstage.”

    Earlier this summer, Madison declined her contract renewal with the Las Vegas burlesque revue Peepshow, telling People that she was hoping to get pregnant soon. “I’ve wanted kids and that’s something I’m definitely doing as soon as possible,” she revealed. “Definitely being with the right guy has a lot to do with it. My relationship is awesome. I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my personal life.”

  4. Kennedy And Sexton Join DBSA Honorary Advisory Board

    Close to the beginning of 2012, the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) announced the members of its new honorary advisory board, a panel of well-known names who’ve dealt with depression, bipolar disorder, or some other type of mental health issue in their lives.

    At the time, members included Patty Duke, Marya Hornbacher, Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD, Andrew Solomon, Greg Montgomery, and Jessie Close.

    Now, the DBSA has announced two new members!

    First up is Linda Gray Sexton, who has authored several books (including memoirs, non-fiction, and fiction) and is the daughter of late Pulitzer-Prize winning poet, Anne Sexton. Linda has battled depression, bipolar disorder and suicidal thoughts.

    Next is Congressman Patrick Kennedy, the author and lead sponsor of the Mental Health Parity & Addiction Equity Act of 2008 and, of course, a member of America’s own royal family, the Kennedys. Most recently Kennedy co-founded One Mind for Research, a national coalition seeking new treatments and cures for neurologic and psychiatric diseases of the brain.

    Congratulations to both worthy members!

  6. Rihanna And Oprah Talk Fame, Family, And Chris Brown

    Got OWN?

    The Oprah Winfrey Network, that is.

    If so, you might want to tune in to tonight’s episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” for an intimate interview with Rihanna, during which the pop sensation talks about her music career, the price of fame, her family life, and of course, the devastating night in 2009 when her life with former boyfriend Chris Brown changed forever.

    I lost my best friend. Like, everything I knew switched, switched in a night, and I couldn’t control that. So, I had to deal with that, and that’s not, that’s not easy for me to understand or interpret, and it’s not easy to interpret on camera…not with the world watching.

    We’ve speculated a lot about the Chrianna saga for years – everything from restraining orders and reconciliations to revenge and responsibility.

    What has developed since her candid interview with Diane Sawyer three years ago?

    The episode airs tonight, August 19, 2012 at 9 p.m. EST. To find your local OWN channel, visit Oprah.com.

  9. Todd Larsen, Former Dow Jones President, Expected to Join Time Inc. to Lead News, Sports

    Todd Larsen, the former president of Dow Jones, will reportedly join Time Inc. to head its news and sports brands.

    Larsen, who served as the publisher of the Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch, AllThingsD and other Dow Jones properties from January 2010 to June 2012, will fill the vacancy at the magazine company, AdAge reported Friday.

    He fills a position left open since February, 2011, when former news group chief Jack Griffin was ousted. Mark Ford currently heads the sports group and will now report to Larsen.

    He left the News Corp.-owned company after nearly 13 years when Rupert Murdoch hired Lex Fenwick to fill the CEO slot left open when Les Hinton resigned amid the phone-hacking scandal at some of the media giant’s British tabloids.

    Three Time spokespeople did not respond to calls from TheWrap for comment.

    Larsen will likely oversee the news and sports groups of Time, which publishes its namesake magazine Time, People, Fortune, Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly, Essence and InStyle. The two groups became separate operations in December 2010, a decision made by Griffin.

    Now, Time must find a publisher.

    Time CEO Laura Lang has been searching for a new publisher for the magazine group since the former publisher Kim Kelleher left in July to head the blog network Say Media.
