Bethenny Frankel’s not having a great run. Not only was the 43-year-old’s talk show canceled, but her almost two-month romance is on the rocks. In Touch reports that her overbearing personality is pushing away her new boyfriend, Michael “Mac” Cerussi, 34. “Bethenny has been telling people that Mac’s the one, and it’s freaking him out. She’s coming on way too strong,” a friend of the financier tells In Touch.

Oh, daddy

Any minute now, Simon Cowell could be a new dad. The 54-year-old X Factor mentor’s girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, was in labor, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. An insider tells Us that Cowell pulled out of filming Britain's Got Talent in the U.K. on Friday, and boarded a private jet heading to New York for the arrival. Just don’t expect him to change the nappies.

In related news, Susan Sarandon is gearing up for her latest role: grandmother. Daughter Eva Amurri Martino is pregnant; the father is Eva’s retired soccer-playing hubby Kyle Martino, confirms People.

Bad press

Drake is apologizing for tweeting that he was “disgusted” with Rolling Stone for replacing him on the cover with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. The 27-year-old wrote on his blog: “I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone,” and called Hoffman “legendary.” He titled the post “Tough Day At The Office.”

Smart thinking

Leonardo DiCaprio has always had an indie spirit. The Wolf of Wall Street star revealed to Variety that when he was 18, he turned down a role in Disney’s witch comedy Hocus Pocus and “more money than I ever dreamed of” for 1993’s What’s Eating Gilbert Grape in which he played Johnny Depp’s mentally challenged brother.
