It'll be another girl for Erika Christensen! The Parenthood alum accidentally slipped that she's expecting a second daughter while attending the Vanity Fair and Max Mara Celebrate Alexandra Shipp, '2018 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future' Award Recipient event on Tuesday, June 12. Christensen, 35, gushed that her daughter Shane, 2, is excited to meet "her" in a few months. "Hopefully, the little one will learn a lot from her sister," the actress told Us Weekly at the event. "My mom got her a t-shirt that says big sister. So she seems to grasp that there's a baby in here, and she's going to be a big sister. And she's given the belly some kisses and stuff." Christensen announced last month that she and her husband, Cole Maness, are gearing up for baby No. 2. "He's very excited. He's extremely in love with our girl," she said. "He's very excited to kind of see what the family expansion means for us." (The couple tied the knot in 2015.) The Clover star admits she was "very nauseous" in her first trimester, but she doesn't find it more difficult than her first pregnancy. "I feel like the body was equalizing all the hormones and everything, and I'm kind of over that hump and into just more of like, I'm a person with a belly now," she added to Us. "I also haven't challenged myself particularly. Last time, I did a lot of big adventurous hikes and things, and I think I ought to get back into that. I think I was a little fitter the last time." As for recent cravings she's been having? Salty goods like olives and cheese! (US Weekly)

Heading south! Jax Taylor confirmed that he and Brittany Cartwright will tie the knot in her home state. "I can tell you this, the wedding will be in Kentucky!!!" the bartender bad boy, 38, revealed when replying to a fan via Twitter on Monday, June 11. "That's all I know so far." Taylor, who proposed to Cartwright, 29, on Thursday, June 7, previously teased the possibility of a Kentucky ceremony during an interview with Us Weekly. "I want to have it in Kentucky. That's not a surprise," Taylor told Us at the 3rd Annual World Dog Day on May 19. Added the SUR-ver: "Kentucky. 100 percent." The pair, who document their relationship highs and lows on Vanderpump Rules, revealed their engagement on Friday, June 8, with matching Instagram posts showcasing Cartwright's new diamond sparkler. "She said yes!!! ... I am marrying the woman of my dreams and I could not be happier!!" Taylor gushed. Cartwright captioned her photo, "I am so happy, so in love, and so beyond excited for this next chapter of our lives!" Despite their happy news, Taylor made headlines in December 2017 during season 6 of their Bravo show for cheating on Cartwright with coworker Faith Stowers. The two briefly split before reconciling. Taylor couldn't help but rave about the brunette beauty while speaking exclusively to Us last December, hinting that an engagement would be coming soon. "Seeing how she is with people, seeing how she is with me, I don't really want to be with anybody else, and I don't want her to be with anybody else," he gushed. "And so, I don't want to lose her. So if marriage is what we need to do, then that's what we're going to do." (US Weekly)

No need for the reminder. Pete Davidson has covered up a forearm tattoo of former on-again, off-again girlfriend Cazzie David amid news of his engagement to Ariana Grande. The 24-year-old Saturday Night Live star has replaced the permanent pic of David's face -- which was inked on his right arm -- with a larger version of a design that looks close to one the sports on his left side. Davidson is no stranger to showing his affection by adding ink to his already tattoo-covered body. Following news of his relationship to Grande, 24, the SNL comedian was quick to be inspired for his next piece of body art. Earlier this month, Davidson paid a visit to The Black Lantern where artist London Reese tattooed two small designs on him that were inspired by his newly minted fiancee -- a black bunny ears mask, which mirrors the singer's Dangerous Woman album artwork, and her initials on his thumb. Reese shared a picture of his work on June 2, with the caption: "We had a good night." The whirlwind romance between Grande and Davidson goes beyond just a tattoo. Just weeks after Us Weekly broke the news that the pop star and comedian were dating, multiple sources exclusively confirmed to Us that the two were engaged. "They are a perfect fit. They are not rushing to get married," one insider told Us on Monday, June 10. "Their friends are really excited and supportive." Another source added that the lovebirds "were telling people that they're engaged" at Robert Pattinson's birthday party in L.A. on June 9. "They are both constantly making each other laugh," the first insider noted. "Their moms have met. They've been very public with their relationship on social media, and they are very in love." (US Weekly)

Pete Davidson donned Ariana Grande's signature bunny mask during an 'SNL' sketch in late 2017 ... perhaps letting the world in on the secret he was already feeling the singer, even though he was in a different relationship at the time. Pete rocked a suit and Ariana's mask for a masquerade ball sketch that aired in November. At the time, Pete was a year-and-a-half into his relationship with Larry David's daughter, Cazzie. He confirmed their split last month -- shortly after Ariana and Mac went public with their breakup -- and, in the short period of time since then, Ariana and Pete announced they were dating and got engaged. It's still unclear when exactly Pete and Ariana started dating, but one thing's for sure ... they haven't been shy about flaunting their love since then ... and he wasn't shy with his dough when he popped the question. As we first reported, PD dropped nearly $100k for Ariana's custom engagement ring. (TMZ)

Bode Miller Thanks Fans for Their Support Following 19-Month-Old Daughter's Drowning. Bode Miller is trying to find the good in a tragic situation. On Tuesday morning, the Olympic skier took to Instagram and expressed his gratitude for all the supportive messages his family has received in the wake of their 19-month-old daughter's death. "Thank you for all the love and support and to our midwives @lindseymeehleis and @courtneykellis for helping us find the support our family needs during this impossible time," he shared on social media. "Links in bio." Followers are directed to a GoFundMe page titled Miller Family Support. The post, organized by a family friend, is asking for donations that will "help take the burden off of the mountainous medical bills that will soon pile in and the memorial service costs." As of Tuesday afternoon, more than $8,500 had been raised. A Meal Train for the family has also been set up. Earlier this week, Bode and his wife Morgan Miller confirmed the news that their daughter had passed away over the weekend. "We are beyond devastated. Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday," the couple wrote on social media. "Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this. Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten. Our little girl loved life and lived it to its fullest everyday. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time." Orange County Fire Authority would later confirm to E! News that the child passed away after a tragic drowning accident in a Coto de Caza, Calif., pool. "This is extremely tragic for everybody -- for the family, for the neighbors and the community, as well as the first responders including sheriff's deputies and fire paramedics," Captain Steve Concialdi shared with E! News. "These calls are one of the worst calls that firefighter paramedics respond to....This is a public safety message. Children are so quickly drawn to water. They think it's playtime and they don't see the danger. These types of calls happen so quickly." The Orange County Sheriff's Department said the case is being investigated as a tragic accident with no evidence of criminal wrong doing or negligence. As the family continues to grieve, athletes, celebrities and strangers are expressing their support on social media. In fact, Olympic stars including Shawn Johnson, Mikaela Shiffrin, Lindsey Vonn and Ted Ligety have all voiced their condolences to the family. (Eonline)

Bode Miller's wife pulled their young daughter from pool. Bode Miller's wife was inside their neighbors' home talking to people when she suddenly realized their young daughter wasn't with her -- and rushed outside, spotted the child in the pool and pulled her out, a fire official said Tuesday. "They were at a neighbor's house, talking to the neighbors inside, and somehow the little girl made her way to the backyard pool," Orange County Fire Authority Captain Steve Concialdi told People magazine. It wasn't immediately clear whether Miller was there at the time. The little girl, 19-month-old Emeline Miller, "was only missing for just a short amount of time, and Mom turned and was looking for her and didn't see her right next to her," the official said, referring to Miller's wife, Morgan Beck. "Mom went straight to the backyard to where the pool was. The child was in the pool. The mom pulled out the little girl, and they started CPR immediately," he said. The tot later died at the hospital. (PageSix)

Joy Behar Hospitalized After She Stabbed Herself with a Knife. Joy Behar was hospitalized over the weekend after she stabbed her hand with a knife. Following her absence on The View Monday, the 75-year-old host returned to the talk show on Tuesday, when she explained how she suffered the injury. "Saturday night, on my way to the event at the retreat, I stabbed myself in the hand with a knife," Behar said. "I was trying to desperately eat something, so I was trying to open up an avocado and I stuck the knife into the pit to get it out ... and I stabbed myself," she shared. Behar admitted that she had "never had pain quite so intense, it was awful." "Apparently, there is a syndrome called Avocado Hand. It's real. And the doctor said, 'Oh, we get this all the time,'" she explained. "So anytime you're holding the item and you try to cut it, you can get this. So what happened was I guess there must have been infection, they put me in the hospital overnight." During her hospitalization, Behar said that she was on an "antibiotic drip" every six hours and is now "better." "I said, 'Doctor, I need this finger.' Because you can lose it by the way," said Behar. Though Behar was gifted a protective glove and an avocado slicer, she has another idea about how to help prevent future injuries. "I was thinking instead of this, I'm going to leave the dicing to Rachael Ray and I'm only going to buy ready-made guacamole," she quipped. With the sudden explosion of avocado toasts, unique guacamoles and the endless ways to incorporate more of the green stuff into your meals, Simon Eccles, the secretary of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, told the U.K.'s The Times in 2017 that he sees about four patients a week with an injury related to cutting an avocado. He's seen so many people who have had an avocado experience gone wrong that he is suggesting a warning label come on the fruit: "Perhaps we could have a cartoon picture of an avocado with a knife, and a big red cross going through it?" The phenomenon had been dubbed "avocado hand" by several U.K. doctors and according to an orthopedic surgeon at NYU Langone's Hand Center, this is a seasonal injury with waves of people coming in around Cinco de Mayo each year, when guacamole is extra popular. Although kitchen-related injuries are not tracked by ingredient, the injuries from avocados range from a simple slash to losing full function in the hand. The View airs weekdays (11 a.m. ET) on ABC.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Reach New Custody Agreement for Summer. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reached a new custody agreement for their six kids, just in time for the summer. According to court documents obtained by E! News Tuesday, a judge in Jolie and Pitt's divorce case has determined that "not having a relationship with their father is harmful" to their children, adding that it is "critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother." Jolie and Pitt are parents to 16-year-old Maddox, 14-year-old Pax, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. It's been almost two years since Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple first started a romance in 2004 and secretly tied the knot 10 years later in 2014 at Chteau Miraval in France. The documents outline the summer arrangement for the Jolie-Pitt children, not including Maddox who is 16 and is being allowed to decide how much time he wants to spend with each of his parents. Pitt will have custody of the kids from June 8 until June 17 for four hours per day while he's in London, where Jolie has a rental home. From June 27 to July 1, Pitt will get custody for 10 hours per day. There are also dates scheduled for Pitt to have custody later on in July. Jolie and Pitt both recently started production on their latest films. Elle Fanning posted a photo with co-star Jolie on the London set of Maleficent 2 in late May. Meanwhile, Pitt was photographed in Los Angeles last week at the table read for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. A source is also giving E! News some insight into the former couple's custody agreement. "They worked out an agreement that was mutually acceptable. Angelina wanted the kids in Europe for the summer and Brad would not do that because he is filming in Los Angeles," the insider tells us, adding that Brad "felt like he actually had a say and that the court was seeing his side of things." "The kids will be traveling back and forth in order to spend time with both parents. He has only wanted what's best for the kids and would never interfere in making that happen," the source continues. "He is not working every day but he worked out a schedule for the kids that works with his filming schedule. Brad's very into the project and excited about working with Tarantino. He's in a good place and looking healthy and happy. He's fully immersed in that project at the moment and very focused on it." As for how Pitt feels about the summer schedule for his kids, the insider tells us he's "thrilled." "He is thrilled that the summer schedule for the kids is figured out and that he will be seeing them regularly. He feels this is a huge victory," the source shares. "It's a big step and he hopes to continue getting back on track with each of the kids." The insider adds, "Brad is very happy that the court understands what's been going on. All he wanted was to parents his kids." (Eonline)

Paul Marciano is stepping down as executive chairman at Guess after his company forked over $500,000 to 5 people who accused him of sexual harassment. According to documents filed by Guess, Marciano resigned on Monday ... although the company will keep him on as Chief Creative Officer until January in order to make a smooth transition to a successor. He will receive his full pay until then, according to the docs. Guess says it reached settlements with Marciano's 5 accusers. During a review of the allegations, Guess claims it interviewed more than 40 people and combed through more than a million pages of documents and emails. The company's Special Committee found Marciano used "poor judgment" in the way he dealt with models and photographers. They also said he put himself in situations where it was "plausible" he'd be accused of misconduct. As we reported, Kate Upton very publicly accused Marciano of sexual misconduct during her photo shoots and business meetings. It's unclear if she is among the accusers who settled. (TMZ)

T.I. will need to dive into his own pockets to pay the unpaid wages of his restaurant employees who lost their jobs when it closed its doors. Tip just settled with 9 of 11 employees who went after him after his Scales 925 shut down in 2016. Each will get $8,333.33 in unpaid money ... totaling about $75,000. The rapper is also on the hook for another $25,000 in attorney's fees -- do the math and it's right around $100,000. As for his part -- T.I. claimed he wasn't a bad restaurant owner -- he says he put a manager in charge who siphoned money to line his own pockets. (TMZ)

John Schneider's time in jail was about as long as a 'Lord of the Rings' movie ... thanks to overcrowding -- but he's got a lot to do to avoid going back. We broke the story ... the 'Dukes of Hazzard' star was sentenced to 3 days in County lockup for failure to pay up more than $150k in back spousal support to his estranged wife. He checked in Tuesday morning and even posted a video as he drove there, encouraging fans to buy some of his gear. According to law enforcement ... he checked in at 10:29 AM, and was out at 3:46 PM. Sounds like celebrity justice, but fact is, most non-violent offenders in L.A. County jail get severely shortened sentences due to jail overcrowding. He's not in the clear yet, though. As we reported, Schneider still has to do 240 hours of community service, and complete a long list of financial obligations, or he'll get an additional 5-day sentence. Or roughly 7-8 hours ... based on Tuesday's brief stay. (TMZ)

Rose McGowan to go on trial in January on cocaine charge. Actress and activist Rose McGowan will stand trial in January on a charge of felony cocaine possession in Virginia. News outlets report McGowan's trial was set on Tuesday, a day after she was indicted. She'll be tried on Jan. 15. Charging documents say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left on a plane last year. McGowan has maintained she's innocent, suggesting in court papers that the drugs were planted at the behest of producer Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein attorney Ben Brafman called that allegation a "ludicrous claim." McGowan was among the first to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault. She and others say he's aggressively sought to discredit his accusers. Weinstein has denied all accusations. Her attorney Jose Baez said McGowan's charge is a result of "her activism as a voice for women everywhere." (PageSix)

Jamie Foxx is being accused of slapping a woman with his penis nearly 16 years ago, and although she's now gone to police ... Foxx says it's an "absurd" lie, and he's going after her, legally ... TMZ has learned. The alleged assault happened in Las Vegas back in 2002. According to law enforcement, the accuser told cops last week she and a friend were attending a party at Jamie's place when he tried to get her to perform oral sex. She claims when she refused, Jamie struck her in the face with his penis. The accuser tells us ... after the alleged assault, one of Jamie's friends told her she had to get out of the house. She claims she went to a hospital the next day when she got back home to L.A. to get treatment for a severe panic attack. Law enforcement sources tell us Vegas PD lists the case as an open investigation. However, the statute of limitations has long since run -- it's 3 years in Nevada. Jamie's attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, tells TMZ ... "Jamie emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred, and he will be filing a report with the Las Vegas Police Department against the woman for filing a false police report against him. The first time [Jamie] became aware of this woman's absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred 16 years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives [Tuesday] about this story." Hart adds, "The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday because the incident never happened." The accuser says the #MeToo movement inspired her to finally file the police report. She also claims she wanted the alleged incident recorded in case other accusers come forward. (TMZ)
