Reese Witherspoon Welcomes Son Tennessee James

The actress gave birth to a son, Tennessee James Toth, on Thursday, Sept. 27, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today,” the rep says. “Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled.”

The baby is Witherspoon’s first child with her husband, whom she married in March 2011. She is already mom to Ava, 13, and Deacon, 8½, from her prior marriage.

In March, a source told PEOPLE that the actress, 36, was eager to have another child. “Right after the wedding, Reese expressed a desire to have a baby with Jim,” said the source. “Reese has been very open with her kids about her plans to expand the family.”

Witherspoon, who initially kept her pregnancy under wraps, subsequently showed off her baby bump all around the world over the spring and summer — from appearances at the Cannes Film Festival to lunches and errands at home in Los Angeles. “Frankly, I’m feeling very round,” she told reporters in June.

I got to try a glade expressions kit from BzzAgent and enjoyed it. The fragrance mist kit came with a scent of fuji apple and cardamom spice. You just squeeze the bottle, a scent fills the room and the room smells good for a while.

The oil diffuser kit is great as well. I choose the scents pineapple and mangosteen and you just leave it in a room and the oil will go into the air of the room for 30 days so my bedroom will be smelling great for a month.

Thanks to BzzAgent for this nice opportunity.

Amanda Bynes Dropped By Agent, Publicist and Lawyer

Troubled former child star Amanda Bynes is on her own.

TMZ reports that the 26-year-old actress -- recently involved in a string of automobile-related trouble -- has been dropped by her agent, publicist and lawyer all within the last few weeks.

According to the site, Bynes employed the trio's services for years, but became "extremely difficult" in the last 12 months, and has been unresponsive when her representatives have tried to contact her. A source tells TMZ that Bynes isn't worried about her team cutting all ties, however, given that she intends to transition from acting to a career in fashion.

Bynes will likely be in court Friday after a judge urged her to appear in person for a hearing about her pending DUI case. (She is on trial after allegedly running into a police car while driving under the influence on April 6; she has also been charged with two hit-and-runs for accidents that occurred on April 10 and August 4.)

The California DMV revoked Bynes' license and her vehicle has been impounded.
"Why did I get put in jail and a Nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?" Lindsay Lohan angrily tweeted Sunday as Bynes' legal woes continued to mount.

Throughout the summer, Bynes has maintained her innocence, even taking to Twitter to petition none other than President Barack Obama for assistance in clearing her name. "Hey Barack Obama . . . I don't drink," Bynes tweeted in June. "Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."


Fergie: I'm Not Pregnant, Just Heavier

Fergie's got an announcement to make, but it's probably not the one fans have been expecting.

The musician, 37, visited the Rachael Ray Show September 20, where she talked candidly about the pressure to have a child with her husband of three years, actor Josh Duhamel, 39.

"[People ask if I'm pregnant] every time I fluctuate a few pounds. Like right now, I'm a couple pounds up," the Black Eyed Peas singer said. "Sometimes I go a couple pounds down and I wear the clothes that are more fitted, but people kind of look at me because they're expecting [that] it's that time. We do hope for children and that will be coming up, but it's not yet."

For now, the singer is happy to spend quality time with her hubby, who recently wrapped production on the movie Safe Haven with Julianne Hough, 24. "I love [wearing] sweats," Fergie said of their low-key lifestyle. "I steal Josh's T-shirts. It's fun! They're baggy and he likes it."

One thing Fergie doesn't like, however, is when Duhamel watches her get ready before leaving the house. "I hate when he comes in in the middle of me getting ready. It just ruins the whole thing," the California native laughed. "I'm always like, 'Get out!' You want to come out and present."

Review of the book The Trouble with Cowboys by Denise Hunter

I first off want to thank booksneeze for giving me a chance to read this book, I was excited to read this book from the moment it came out.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a romance book about a girl who was dating this one guy and thought he was the one but realized in the end she was in love with somebody else. And in this book this one girl Annie was also trying to keep her, her sister and her sister's son safe and happy and help keep the family together. I managed to read this book in 3 days because I got so into it and I wanted to keep on reading. I would definately reccomend this book to anyone, including my friends.

I liked the characters and the background of cowboys and horses. I lately enjoy reading outdoor magazines about deer, elk,etc and horses. I just like reading and learning about new things because thats how you grow as a person and should be open to almost anything.

I also wanted to add that for a christian book I really have no complaints, nothing offended me or anything.A

Lindsay Lohan Arrested in NYC: New Detail‏

Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested in the wee hours Wednesday morning for leaving the scene of an accident. Lilo is accused of clipping a pedestrian in New York, but claims she had no idea she had hit someone.

Officers told TMZ that Lindsay was parking her Porsche Cayenne and driving at a very low speed near the Dream Hotel downtown when she allegedly struck a man in his 30s.
The “Liz & Dick” star parked and entered the hotel just after midnight and when she emerged around 2:30 AM police arrested her.

The 26-year-old was booked at the station and released without having to pay bail. The victim was taken to the hospital, but reportedly had no visible injuries.

The incident could cause major trouble for the star, who is on probation. Friends of Lindsay’s told TMZ that she didn’t realize she had hit someone and feels she may be the victim of a setup. Surveillance video of the accident shows Lindsay drive past the man very slowly, but it is unclear whether she clipped him. Afterward, he sprinted after the actress, but didn't approach her as she entered the hotel.

Meanwhile, she reportedly looked unaware of the run-in as she got out of her car and headed into the hotel.

The tapes also show Lilo left the location a few minutes later, but then returned a short while after that.

Early reports claimed that a passenger in Lohan’s car got out to inspect the damages, but sources told TMZ that it simply isn’t true.

Lindsay, whose driving habits have been compared with Amanda Bynes' in recent weeks, slammed law enforcement on Monday for going easy on Amanda. She wrote, "Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far? +"

After the accident, reports claimed the former child star was headed to rehab, but a source close to Lindsay said it was "untrue."

As Lohan's latest legal woes play out in NYC, Lifetime is shifting the spotlight to the actress' latest TV movie, "Liz & Dick.

Heidi and Spencer Pratt: We Faked Our Huge Fights on The Hills

Now that MTV's cameras are no longer following their every move, Spencer and Heidi Pratt admit to Us Weekly that much of their onscreen drama on The Hills -- the feuds, the fights, the villainy -- wasn't real.

"I was hell-bent on being the bad-guy character on the show," Spencer, 29, tells Us. "I got caught up in it."

His wife of three years Heidi, 26, confirms the proceedings were less than genuine. "Spencer and I never fight like that. Never," says Heidi, who recently "changed my last name to Pratt, so that's the biggest thing in my life."

Spencer is currently focused on getting his University of Southern California political science degree, not to mention making do with less money.

"I'm turning down paid appearances. We don't have celebrity-sized money anymore, but we're fine," he tells Us. "I'm happy to be around normal people these days!"

Review of the book The Southern Foodie by Chris Chamberlain

This book is a cookbook that looks into Southern resturants and what they cook. The author gives a background on the resturant and the history of the resturants and then gives us a receipe of their famous dish so we can make it at home.

The first recipe I thought I would enjoy is a simple pot roast dish. its from a restaurant called cotton row.  The second recipe I liked was cornbread. It came from a resturant called Irondale cafe. This resutrant was made famous by the movie fried green tomatoes by Fannie Flagg that was made in 1992 by the same name. Everyday they make 77 plus pounds of tomatoes and go through the fryer everyday.

The next two recipes that sounded great were chocolate pound cake by a restaurant called Lulu's at homepart and it sounds great because I used to celebrate holidays like thanksgiving and my aunts used to make this dish and I always loved it.  The second one is called bubble bread, I haven't heard of this before it sounds yummy. Its like a giant cinnamon roll I guess because its made with dinner rolls, cinnamon, vanilla pudding mix, butter and brown sugar. All that sounds good to me and its made by a restaurant called the waysider.

The final restaurant that sounded good to me was in South Carolina and they make something called brocolli cornbread at a restaurant called Virginia's on Kings.

This not really a christian book like I have reviewed in the past but it was fun to review and keep and I am giving it to my mom for her enjoyement as well.

Alicia Etheredge-Brown, wife of Bobby Brown, was rushed to the hospital after suffering a seizure on Saturday, reportedly caused by diabetes.

According to a People source, the incident was caused by the disease that Alicia - who is also Bobby's manager - was diagnosed with in 2009.

Alicia was diagnosed with diabetes during her pregnancy with the couple's child, Cassius, who is now 3 years old.

As previously reported on, Alicia had a seizure in the couple's hotel room in Kissimmee, Fla., while the singer was performing a soundcheck ahead of the New Edition show scheduled to take place at the Gaylord Palms Resort on Saturday evening.

Bobby confirmed the report via Twitter, writing, "The report that my wife was rushed to the hospital is true. She is recovering and is in good spirits and doing well.

"Please keep my family in your prayers," he added.

Bobby and Alicia married in June, after Bobby proposed during a New Edition concert in Jacksonville, Fla., in 2010.
