Brooke Burke, the host of CBS' Rock Star: Supernova, had a baby boy on Wednesday, according to People. The child is the second for Burke and fiancé David Charvet, who previously starred on Baywatch, and the first son for Burke. In addition to the new baby, the pair has a 1-year-old daughter, Rain, together, and Burke has two other children with ex-husband Garth Fisher.Burke and Charvet announced their engagement and their little rock star on the way in August. In the spirit of her pregnancy, Burke recently launched a website with products for other expecting moms, called Baboosh Baby, which hawks "tauts," belly wraps that she says help get ladies' bellies back into shape once they've given birth. Even hetero expecting dads might like the site: Burke models all the tauts herself. Anna DimondRelated: It's a Rock Star: Superbaby!
Question: My wife and I are both fans of Bon Jovi and the Bee Gees, so we were really disappointed by the lousy versions of the songs that the band played for the contestants on American Idol. Is there any way they could hire a decent house band? Have there been any complaints from the contestants about how bad the band is? Week in and week out, we constantly complain.

But really, how can you resist rejoicing when smug, painfully overexposed reality junkies Rob and Amber are shown the door, coming in last on the mat behind (get this) even the hapless Charla and Mirna, who had the bulls-eye on them throughout Sundays episode of The Amazing Race: All-Stars. (If theyre not ousted next week, it will be another minor miracle.)For those who study things like how reality-show episodes are put together, one might have predicted Rombers downfall this week, given their interview moment early on when Rob fake-protested that he wasnt arrogant or cocky, then noted, Im not even close to my prime. Well, certainly not when it comes to spelling, he isnt.Rob and Amber are unquestionably reality all-stars. I keep expecting one or the other to appear on CBS Rock Star this s...
