  • Kate Middleton Makes First Post-Baby Appearance: How Does She Look?

    Haley Velasco at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    The Duchess of Cambridge is back and ready for action!

    Kate Middleton looked fresh and fit as she accompanied her husband, Prince William, to her first event five weeks after giving birth to baby George. The couple attended the Ring O'Fire Ultra Marathon in Anglesey, Wales, to kick off the annual 135-mile coastal race, which takes place over three days.

    The Duchess of Cambridge's appearance was very spur of the moment, as the new mom was not originally scheduled to make any public appearances until the Tusk Conservation Awards on September 12.

    Still, Middleton looked stunningly cool and casual … and not at all mom-ish! She rocked some totally chic, snug black skinny jeans by Paige Denim, a polka-dot top from Zara, and an olive green Ralph Lauren blazer while mingling with the crowd at the event. She finished the look with LK Bennett wedges and relaxed waves in her hair.

    So where was Prince George while mom and dad went on this outing?

  • Lamar Odom Caps Epically Bad Week With DUI Bust

    Haley Velasco at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    This week isn't getting any better for Lamar Odom.

    Amidst swirling divorce allegations and drug addiction rumors, the veteran NBA player was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs, "omg! Insider" confirms.

    The arrest took place in the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 a.m. when Odom's white Mercedes SUV was spotted on the 101 Freeway "driving in a serpentine manner, weaving all over the place in and out of lanes going 50 miles an hour in a 65 mile zone," the California Highway Patrol described.

    According to the CHP, Odom "showed objective signs of driving under the influence and was unable to perform the field sobriety tests the officers asked for." Additionally, the athlete declined taking any chemical tests.

    The 33-year-old b-baller was taken to a nearby Los Angeles police station where he was booked without incident on a misdemeanor charge and assigned a $15,000 bail. He was released from the Van Nuys jail just a few hours later.

    A rep for Kardashian declined to comment on this incident.

  • Cue the Coos and Meet the New First Pup!

    Haley Velasco at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    The Obamas have added a new member to the first family … and no, it's not a baby. They got a new puppy!

    The family welcomed Sunny, a female Portuguese Water Dog, to the clan on Monday.

    Sunny, who was born in Michigan in 2012, will be the little sister to Bo, the Portuguese Water Dog the Obamas first brought home to the White House in April 2009, when they received him as a gift from Senator Ted Kennedy.

    "Sunny is the perfect little sister for Bo —­ full of energy and very affectionate — and the first family picked her name because it fit her cheerful personality," explained a statement from the White House. "We suspect Sunny will follow in Bo's footsteps and keep the president company in the Oval Office, go for walks with the first family after their 6:30 family dinner, and even jump up on the first lady's lap from time to time!"

    In honor of Sunny joining the family, the Obamas are making a donation to the Washington Humane Society.

    Enjoy the Dog Days of Summer.

  • Katherine Jackson Takes the Stand in Michael Jackson Trial

    Haley Velasco at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    In the ongoing lawsuit surrounding Michael Jackson's death, it was finally time for the prosecution to take the stand on Friday.

    Katherine Jackson, the 83-year-old matriarch of the Jackson brood, stepped forward to testify against the promoters of Michael Jackson's "This Is It" 50-concert tour, for her suit against AEG Live LLC claiming they were negligent in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, a choice that led to her son's death.

    "I want to know what happened to my son," she told jurors. "I leave the spotlight for my children. A lot of the things that have been said [here] are not the truth ... [It's hard] to listen to how sick my son was and nobody was trying to help him."

    Jackson died in his sleep, after Dr. Murray enabled him to take a deadly dose of the anesthetic Propofol on June 25, 2009. Murray is currently serving four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter.

    The King of Pop's mother claims she expressed her concerns about Michael's ability to perform 50 shows in such tight sequence as had been originally planned. "He couldn't do every other night like AEG wanted him to do at first," she said.

  • Diaper Duty Gets, Well, Dirty With Nick Lachey

    Haley Velasco at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    Nick Lachey is not afraid to get down and dirty when it comes to his son.

    The 98 Degrees frontman got his first taste of fatherhood on September 12, 2012, when he and his wife, Vanessa Minnillo, welcomed Camden John. Lachey, 39, already feels confident about certain aspects of his new role.

    "I change a wicked diaper," he tells omg! at the launch of the #PretzelLoveSongs campaign promoting the new Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger at Wendy's. "I have never been afraid with a diaper change."

    But that wasn't always the case. The current host of NBC's "The Winner Is" laughed as he recalled a tough time at the beginning.

    "There was one early, early, early [diaper] change when he was doing it both ways and stuff was flying. We were trying to hold it all together," he said. " I think every parent has that story – until you learn what to anticipate and how to anticipate it, you are going to get caught occasionally."

    Lachey promised his diaper-changing skills have gotten much better these days, but it takes two to tango. Ever the sweetheart, Nick didn't shy away from giving his Vanessa a nod of approval for her skills with the Pampers.
