Is Gabrielle Union pregnant?

Bad timing?

Here we go...And the bump watch is on! Just because Dwyane Wade’s omnipresent fiancee Gabrielle Union showed up in a tight black dress on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday with the teeniest bit of tummy bulge, Internet tongues began to wag that the 41-year-old once-divorced TV star was preggers. Not that procreating is out of the question for the couple, but we have to wonder how Wade will have time to concentrate on his basketball with all these babies running around. Though part of D (Gabby’s pet name) may be hoping for a girl with three boys under his, um, belt. OK, we get it. He’s sexy and apparently irrestistible, Union explains in February’s issue of Glamour.

"I am almost a little Chester the Molester-y. I think he's so delicious. Watching him get out of the shower never gets old. Never. It's not like he ever wonders what I'm thinking, but usually he's thinking, ‘She needs a cold shower!’”

Scandal re-emerges

Many Larry King fans may not know that the veteran CNN host has a record. Oh it was a long time ago, but still, it’s there and isn’t going away. Especially now with the (most likely) upcoming book Junkman Genius (Bloodhound Press), about Wall Street big Louis E. Wolfson, who died in Bal Harbour in 2007 was and not part of the influential local Wolfson family.

Co-written by the infamous financier’s daughter Marcia Drake, it dredges up old dirt, according to Page Six. A refresher: In 1971, King was arrested in Miami on charges of grand larceny. Then a local radio host, the so-called bag man allegedly pocketed $5,000 from Wolfson’s $25,000 payment destined for New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, who was investigating the JFK assassination, in order to buy influence. Wolfson had apparently given King, aka “the bag man,” the stash. King eventually got off because the statute of limitations ran out.

The scandal derailed the suspender-loving former Miami Herald columnist for a few years, but as we all know, everything eventually worked out.

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.

    Bachelorette Andi Dorfman: I was attracted to Josh Murray from the beginning

    Bachelorette (no more) Andi Dorfman stopped by Good Morning America on Tuesday to show off her ABC swag (aka engagement ring) from former pro baseball player Josh Murray. The 27-year-old lawyer and her 29-year-old grinning fiance held hands and looked pretty happy. “I definitely knew there was that chemistry and attraction with him,” Dorfman said of their first meeting. “I'm definitely an overthinker, though, so it took me till the very end.” Plus she had to break up with 24 guys first. No wedding date has been set yet; the couple need to do more publicity first.
