What a woman! Danica McKellar, who first stole our hearts as Winnie Cooper in The Wonder Years, is now inspiring us to get excited about math! Her New York Times bestselling books Math Doesn’t Suck and Kiss My Math challenges us to look at the way we socialize our young girls: “Society teaches girls that they have to choose between being smart and being attractive.” Her upcoming book, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, hits shelves next month and encourages girls aged 13-15 to excel at – and enjoy! – math.
No only is she launching a new book, she’s also delivering her first baby later this year! Danica and her husband, composer Mike Verta, are preparing to “do lots of ‘babywearing’ in wraps/slings, and of course give the baby tons of love.” The 35 year old mom-to-be opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her passion to empower young girls, her pregnancy and her hopes for a natural childbirth.
Belinda Carlisle made history as the lead singer of one of the most successful bands of the 80’s, The Go-Go’s. She followed up this success with a string of hits and an equally impressive solo career.
In her autobiography, Lips Unsealed: A Memoir Living, Carlisle opens up about the insecurities living in Hollywood brought her, and how it lead her down a dark path of alcohol, and drug abuse. In an interview with Pop Tart to discuss the book, Carlise opens up about her husband who has stood by her since 1986, Morgan Mason, and drinking everyday while pregnant with son James Duke, 18.
On others seeing her drink while pregnant: “I didn’t notice and I didn’t pay attention. I only noticed what I cared to notice. I didn’t really pay attention to what other people said.”
On her supportive husband of 24 years: “He’s a very evolved person and under all that, he always saw the person that he loved. He saw this divine person through all the crap. We also had a son together and [didn’t want to put him through divorce.]”

Good news for Tori and family: Her hubby Dean McDermott was released from hospital earlier this week. Dean was in the ICU with a punctured lung and other injuries after a serious dirt bike accident last week.

Singer Kelis has recently opened up about her repaired relationship with ex-husband, rapper Nas. Though in the past the two faced off in a battle over child and spousal support, Kelis says that it is important to her that their son sees his parents have a cordial relationship, saying,
My kid is the center of my world. I don’t leave him ever. I take him with me everywhere. I was married. It didn’t work out. The most amazing thing came out of it. I am good with that. (Knight) will never read anywhere that I said anything negative about his father. It doesn’t matter whether it’s true or not. Because at the end of the day he needs to know he did come from love.”
The two were married in 2005 and split wile Kelis was pregnant with son Knight. Nas also has a teenage daughter, Destiny, from a previous relationship.
