It looks like a $200 price tag couldn’t keep Tom Brady’s fans from gobbling up the Patriots quarterback’s cookbook. The TB12 Nutrition Manual features 89 recipes and is described on the four-time Super Bowl champion’s website as being printed on 100-pound text paper with covers made from natural wood. Brady has posted a picture from the book on his Facebook page, calling it “another step toward achieving your peak performance.”

Recipes include avocado ice cream and carrot cake. The book can be taken apart and expanded. The description on the site says anyone who buys it will receive additional pages with new or modified recipes. It’s listed as sold out, and a note says more may be available next month.

OH, BABY

Audra McDonald will soon be stepping away from her new Broadway show for the best of reasons: The six-time Tony Award-winner is pregnant at 45. McDonald announced that she will take maternity leave from Shuffle Along beginning July 24. Audra and her husband, actor Will Swenson, married in 2012; she has a daughter, and he is father to two sons from previous marriages. “Who knew that tap dancing during perimenopause could lead to pregnancy? Will and I are completely surprised — and elated — to be expecting a new addition to our family,” McDonald said.

PROBE BEGINS

British prosecutors are considering whether to pursue criminal charges against singer Cliff Richard over alleged sex abuse several decades ago. The Crown Prosecution Service said in a statement that it will “carefully consider” evidence handed over by South Yorkshire Police. The 75-year-old entertainer, who was a pop idol in the early 1960s, has denied any wrongdoing. Prosecutors say they will determine whether there is “sufficient evidence” to provide reasonable chances of conviction, and whether a prosecution is in the public interest.
