Secret Couple Amanda Seyfried and Josh Hartnett Totally Pulled One Over on Us

Did your ears just perk up? Did your spine feel a slight tingle? Don't worry, it's not the dangerous solar storms that are racing toward Earth; it's because a new Cute Couple Alert has just been issued. Amanda Seyfried is dating Josh Hartnett, and it turns out they've been secretly together since January. How have they managed to keep this good news from our prying eyes for so long?

Well, says one of their friends, "Josh likes to keep things low-key, so they've just been hanging out." They were set up by a friend (presumably not the one who is now dishing to Us), and things have progressed from there. I guess it's actually easy to keep a relationship on the DL when you don't put on fancy clothes and go out to the best restaurants in town every night. Well played, you two love birds. [Us]

Jessica Simpson has been pregnant for what feels like eternity, yet we are just now finding out about the moment she actually learned she was knocked up, lo those many, many months ago. She told Elle that it began when she was hit by an "overwhelming guilt" about drinking: "We were going to [go] all-day drinking... Ride our bikes, hang out. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?" She took a home pregnancy test, and voila! So much for the all-day drinking. I'm sure it all be worth it when she finally sees her little girl's face sometime in the middle of 2013. [People]

Not surprisingly, Paula Deen's lawyers are saying the claims that have been made against her and her brother, Bubba Hiers, by Lisa Jackson, who used to manage their restaurant, are false. Jackson claims she was sexually harassed and that the work environment was hostile, but Deen's lawyers say, "She has made baseless, inflammatory allegations, threatening to go to the press and ruin Paula Deen's reputation and the reputation of her businesses unless we paid her a large sum of money. We refused to bow to that kind of pressure and refused to pay money to address false claims." Hmm. Looks like we'll have to wait for this to play out in court. [Yahoo!]

Yesterday we were met with the scary news that Dan Stevens, aka Matthew Crawley, is not yet on the hook for season four of Downton Abbey. While the prospect of losing him there is upsetting, at least we can comfort ourselves with the knowledge that we'll have another period piece to watch him in soon. He's been busily filming a movie called Summer in February, while also working on season three of Downton. The movie is set in Edwardian England, and he plays one piece in a love triangle. Sounds very promising, indeed. [Yahoo!]

Now that we know Snooki is officially pregnant, reactions from her Jersey Shore pals are starting to roll in. DJ Pauly D, for one, is pumped: "I'm real excited. You want to know why? I love babies! I love everything about them, when they're not yours. So I'll take care of it, spoil it and then when it's crying, give it back to Snooki." Wow, I hadn't thought about it until now. It's going to be wild enough to have Snooki as a mother, but it's going to be even crazier for that baby to have the whole cast of Jersey Shore as aunts and uncles. [MTV]
