Kim Kardashian’s maternity style attacked


True to the rocker that she is, Fergie has rejected stores like Pea in the Pod thus far.

“I haven’t gone to maternity wear yet,” the singer confided to Life & Style. “I’m just banding my jeans with the tailor.”

Leather leggings also do the trick as well as “flowy, looser tops” and capes.

Perhaps fellow mommy to be Kim Kardashian could take a few style pointers. The reality star has been pilloried of late for stepping out in form- fitting clothes that do not suit her growing frame. One thing the two celebs do agree upon: toning down the high heels.

By the looks of it, Kim’s weight gain isn’t all fetus related.

Kardashian just posted a picture of a famed In N Out burger as well as fries dripping in cheese. Though some tabloids report the five foot two E! princess is at 200 pounds, she says she’s clocking in at 140. (The general rule is 100 pounds per five feet, and five pounds every inch for a nonpregnant, healthy woman.)

According to informational website babycenter.com, the typical pregnant woman should gain between 25 and 35 pounds, gaining one to five pounds in the first trimester and about one pound per week until birth.

Time will tell —Kim is due in July — if she will have to go Jessica Simpson’s Weight Watchers route.

Behind bars

Gucci Mane has been denied bond on charges stemming from a fan’s accusation that the rapper hit him in the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub.

A fan says the actor/rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, hit him in the club’s V.I.P. area earlier this month while he tried to take a picture with him. The fan, James Lettley, says he needed 10 stitches.

Davis was in custody on a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon.

The rapper’s attorney, Drew Findling, tells WSB-TV Davis’ criminal history made it difficult for a judge to set bond. Fulton County jail records show Davis has been arrested 10 times since 2005.

Candid interview

The eldest daughter of former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards says it was difficult to watch the experience her parents went through after he revealed that he’d had an affair. Cate Edwards spoke in an interview scheduled to be aired on NBC’s Today show Friday morning and on Rock Center with Brian Williams that evening. The 31-year-old said her father told her of the affair and that she was devastated.

The ‘X’ Files

You can’t keep Demi Lovato down. The 20-year-old Heart Attack singer will return for The X Factor’s third season, FOX announced.

Too bad ex XF judge Britney Spears couldn’t make it stick. Not that we are worried about her. Brit has found herself a new man —David Lucado. Splash news reports the Virginia native (who has a steady job at a law firm ) had to sign a confidentiality agreement before they started going out.
