Breaking Celebrity News.

Jessica Simpson’s lost a few, Taylor Swift strikes again and the stars come out for Hurricane Sandy and Halloween in this week’s Celebrity Gossip.

Jessica Simpson goes from expectant mummy to hot lass!
Despite her parents’ impending divorce and the rumors surrounding her father’s sexual orientation, Jessica Simpson managed to pull off a happy Halloween with fiancé Eric Johnson and their baby daughter Maxwell dressed as a rooster. The singer/fashion designer and Weight Watchers spokesperson Jessica Simpson tweeted this sexy shot as one half of a Highland couple, complete with thigh-high boots and a leather corset that showed off her trim waistline, and ample cleavage. Simpson has reportedly lost 60 of the 70 pounds she gained during her pregnancy since giving birth in May.

Khloe Kardashian’s X-Factor exposure.
Khloe Kardashian’s live debut as co-presenter of the reality singing competition, the “X-Factor” with Mario Lopez (“B&B’s” ex-Dr. Ramirez) created quite a stir when camera close-ups of the reality star revealed her nipple standing at attention. While the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star looked lovely in a polished black pencil skirt that was cinched at the waist, it was her sheer, long-sleeved blouse with sequin-detailing and plunging neckline that clearly exposed what appeared to be a bra-less, pastie-less, totally unaware Khloe. Husband and NBA star Lamar Odom missed the ‘show’ as he was playing with his team, the Los Angeles Clippers who kicked off the basketball season against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Smack ’em Hackman.
Academy Award-winner Gene Hackman came to the defense of his wife Betsy Arakawa when a homeless man reportedly approached them and insulted her with the ‘C’ word. The couple was just leaving a Santa Fe, New Mexico restaurant when the man allegedly threatened the actor and his wife, forcing Hackman to retaliate by slapping him across the face. No charges were filed after the police later ruled that Hackman acted in self-defence.

Kelsey Grammer’s Playboy Nursery?
Eager to get into the spirit of the Halloween season, actor Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte Walsh toted their three-month old baby girl to a Halloween party dressed as a vampire and a witch – hardly outrageous. However, if the party is at the Playboy Mansion and your wife is seen posing in a blond wig without her witch hat and looking suspiciously like your ex-wife Camille, then the situation can quickly turn scandalous. According to TMZ, baby Faith was reportedly spotted swaddled up and fast asleep in her car seat, positioned next to an unidentified woman, while Grammer and Walsh were enjoying the party. In an apparent statement, Grammer defended their decision, saying that without a babysitter, Faith needed to be near her breastfeeding mother hence the reason she was at the mansion.

Lohan underestimates Sandy’s power.
After her flippant tweet earlier this week about the evacuation warnings surrounding Hurricane Sandy, Lindsay Lohan is probably eating her words. The actress’s mom Dina joined panicked neighbors whose view of the destruction in their Long Island community once the tropical storm had passed, revealed sailboats swept onto lawns and sitting alongside parked cars. Lohan also reported to TMZ that an uprooted tree had fallen, damaging the roof before coming to rest on the family pool. And as if that weren’t enough, two of the Lohan siblings were stranded in New York due to bridge and tunnel closures.

Actor George Wendt hospitalized.
The actor best known for his role as Norm Peterson on the comedy sitcom “Cheers,” has been hospitalized. Wendt was set to play Oscar Madison in the Chicago stage production of “The Odd Couple” next week, but had to drop out due to serious chest pains. Wendt is 64 years old.
