Jessica Alba says being a mother has helped her discover her sexuality. "I was quite shy with it [my sexuality]. It wasn't something I embraced until I had my daughter. I saw how incredible and amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to create a life," she tells Allure. "There's a reason why certain areas of the body are desirable — because it all leads to reproduction. There's a science behind it all. It's not just to sell whatever you're selling on a billboard or a magazine or a movie." And! She might wear a bikini in a movie, but she won't go nude: "At least I'm still covered. I'm wearing as much as a bathing suit. It's not like I'm naked. I'm not terribly comfortable with being in a bikini, but covering up my genitals is different than not covering up my genitals, at the end of the day. I do see a difference in that, to put it really frankly." [Showbiz Spy, Scoop]

Nicki Minaj was hanging out by the pool at a hotel in Dallas when she got into an argument with "an unidentified man she was staying with." Nicki told a hotel employee to call the police, and she and the guy went up to her room, where the quarreling continued. By the time the cops arrived, the dude was gone, but he'd allegedly hit Nicki in her lower lip. According to this report, "Nicki insisted she did NOT want to press charges. Nicki also claimed she was NOT in a relationship with the alleged attacker." [TMZ]

Katie Holmes really thinks ahead. Like 20 years head. She's got outfits planned for when Suri is pregnant. "I will buy something with her in mind, thinking it's gonna look so great on her when she's 25 or whatever. I have a lot of things that I've already set aside, as well as some of my old maternity clothes so that she (can) wear them when she's having a daughter or son." [Contact Music via InStyle]

Ugh. Chris Brown's shrink has a lot of fucking work to do. Breezy went to a 24 Hour Fitness in L.A. and joined a pickup game of basketball, but "things quickly turned ugly." Brown got upset during the game and said things like "That's gay!" and "You're a faggot ass!" Trash talk may be an essential part of the game, but it's obvious this dude has serious issues. Maybe he needs a new therapist? [Radar Online]

I know you. You will not raise an eyebrow when you find out that Victoria Beckham's new baby stroller cost $900. You expect more from the lady whose nickname is Posh!

Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover of Vogue. Yes, again. Inside she talks motherhood: "We don't have any live-in help. We're pretty hands-on parents… That's something that's important to both of us, and we don't shirk it, because what's the point in having a family if you're not going to really participate in it, you know?" [People]
I quite like this ridiculous/gorge photo of SJP and Ferris. "Mommy and Daddy are going to the opera. Be good!" [Vogue]

"Put me at a table with five guys making dick jokes and I will be right there with them. I've never had an experience where it's been a bunch of dudes making dick jokes and I was like, 'Oh, there go the boys. I'm going to go get a pedicure and be back in an hour.'" — Mila Kunis, who also says having a fuck buddy never works. "It's like communism — good in theory, in execution it fails." [NYDN via GQ]
