THIS MAMA AIN’T NO HOLLERBACK GIRL

While on tour in December, Gwen Stefani announced to her Fort Lauderdale audience that she and her husband-rock band Bush’s lead singer, Gavin Rossdale-are expecting a child. She announced this while singing the song “Crash,” asking that the audience “sing loud enough so that the baby could hear it.” Rossdale already has a 16-year-old child with fashion designer Pearl Lowe. However this baby, due in June, will be his and Gwen Stefani’s first child together.

DOES MY SODA TURN YOU ON?

Very soon, a new cherry-flavored soda called Turn On will be available in stores nationwide. Although it’s banned in France and Denmark, makers say it is not only safe to drink but also works as an aphrodisiac. One tester claimed that the $3.50 drink made his “senses more turned on” and he “could feel more on (his) skin.” The only warning label this drink carries is that “this beverage will arouse you.” However, doctors have warned that children, pregnant women, diabetics and people with high blood pressure should avoid the drink.

NOT SO INNOCENT ANYMORE

Jodie Sweetin, the 24-year-old actress who is mostly known for her portrayal of the young and innocent Stephanie Tanner on Full House, has recently come out about her methamphetamine addiction, which began two years ago when she was bored and unemployed. Not even her police-officer husband knew of her debilitating addiction until former cast members and friends John Stamos, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Bob Saget staged an intervention that persuaded Sweetin to check herself into the Promises rehab center. After six weeks of intense treatment, she was released and has been clean and sober since March.
