December 9th, 2012 7:07pm EST
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.
Jessica Alba Pregnant With Third Child: "Just a little over a year after giving birth to her second baby, Haven Garner, the glowing actress is confiding to friends that she's expecting ANOTHER bundle of joy," claims the National Enquirer. "She knows she’ll have her hands full chasing after three kids while balancing her acting career and running a new company, but she just can’t wait to be a mom again."
Verdict: False. Sorry, but there is no third child just yet. An insider told Gossip Cop, "She isn’t pregnant."
Weight Watchers Furious Over Jessica Simpson's Pregnancy: "They're furious with Jessica. She was already on thin ice with them since she didn't lose enough [weight] for the first ad, when they had to shoot her from the waist up," claims Us Weekly. "There’s a chance they won’t pay her the whole $4 million."
Verdict: False. Weight Watchers released a statement on the matter: "What Us Weekly is reporting about our relationship with Jessica is untrue. There have been no changes to our contract with Jessica and we have a great relationship with her.
"We're thrilled with the ads we shot with her in November and we can’t wait to launch our winter campaign later this month, which will include Jessica."
Jack White Blasts Lady Gaga: Did Jack White start the first celebrity feud of 2013 with his comments about Lady Gaga?
Verdict: True. Jack White had some harsh words for Lady Gaga's music in the January issue of Esquire. "I don't think she lives it because it's all artifice. It's all image with no meaning behind it. You can't sink your teeth into it. It's a sound bite."
"It’s very of this age, because that’s what people want. The goal of modern celebrity is to make yourself into the lowest common denominator."
White has since clarified his comments online: "I never said anything about her music, or questioned the authenticity of her songs in any way. I was in a conversation about the drawbacks of image for the sake of image, and that it is popular nowadays to not question an image in front of you"
Kim Kardashian Kept Away From Rose Parade: Is Glendale keeping Kim Kardashian away from his city's float for the Rose Parade due to her sex tape?
Verdict: Probably False. According to RumorFix, there was some backlash when Kim was mentioned as a possible celebrity representative for Glendale. However, it appears there was no invitation extended to Kardashian - and she might have been too busy to be in the parade, anyway: She's hosting a New Year's party in Las Vegas, and the parade starts at 8 am the next morning.
