Getty images file photoThe grudge: Jessica Simpson reportedly is still irritated that her first love

Nick, Jessica share the baby spotlight

Is Jessica Simpson jealous of Vanessa Minnillo stealing her thunder? The singer turned designer is expecting her first child with fiancé Eric Johnson — as of press time, she looked like she was about ready to pop at any moment. But according to OK! magazine, while she prepares for her own bundle of joy, she’s fuming over the fact that her ex-hubby Nick Lachey’s new bride is also pregnant.

The tabloid claims Jessica’s resentment grew after she repeatedly found herself fielding questions about Nick and Vanessa’s coincidentally timed baby news.

“Even though she’s happy with Eric, there’s a part of her that will always feel this sense of ownership over Nick because he was her first love,” an insider reportedly confided to the tabloid. “She knows it’s immature, and it’s not something she’s proud of, but it is something she’s talked about with her friends. She just can’t seem to get over the whole competitive thing with Vanessa. It irritates her that he ended up with Vanessa, of all people.”

“Of all people”? What’s that supposed to mean? Did Jessica and Vanessa have some kind of beef back in the day? And if so, was there a dance-off involved? Please tell us there was a dance-off involved!

Hollywood Hookup

New couple alert! OK, more like new hookup alert. Serial daters Cameron Diaz and Jude Law were reportedly sighted getting hot and heavy at Hollywood hot spot Chateau Marmont—and after the public PDA, they continued the party in a private room.

According to In Touch magazine, the pair were spotted making out on the patio March 9. (Presumably, this eyewitness account had to undergo a week of rigorous fact-checking before it was published.) Jude is said to have paid their $400 tab before the duo slipped away to a private bungalow.

‘Sibling’ Bling?

Bobbi Kristina Brown is indeed engaged to the guy her late mother, Whitney Houston, raised as her brother, People magazine reports. And if People says it, you know they’re not messing around!

Although Nick Gordon has refuted the rumors, his recent PDA with the 19-year-old suggests otherwise.

“Yes, they are engaged, but the family is trying to coax her away from it,” a source confirms to the tabloid of record. Whitney’s mother, Cissy Houston, is “worried” about her granddaughter, according to another source.

The source says, “Nick asked Krissi about a week ago to marry him” and that she’s wearing a ring that belonged to her mom.

The source notes that it’s unclear whether she actually accepted the proposal — but hello, if she’s rocking the ring, that makes it kind of obvious, no? Sure, maybe he didn’t buy it for her, but clearly Whitney’s jewelry must be a lot nicer than anything a 22-year-old could afford.
