The skinny on Kate

Moss says she's pregnant; Minnelli describes "horrific" robbery attempt; Britney starts fire while -- oops! -- shopping with friends!

Topics: Celebrity, Marilyn Manson, Britney Spears,

She may look like she never eats, but Kate Moss is, in fact, eating for two now.

That’s right: The stick-figure model is ripe with child.

In an interview with the London Mirror, Moss confirmed that she and her boyfriend of more than a year, magazine editor Jefferson Hack, are looking forward to becoming parents in October.

“I couldn’t be more delighted,” the superskinny supermodel told the tabloid.

Moss apparently declined to comment on rumors that she and Hack are planning to wed — or on whispers that she has significantly toned down her hard-partying lifestyle.

Anyone in the market for a maternity-underwear model?

The sanest woman in Hollywood

“I don’t think there is anything good about fame. ‘Tables in restaurants.’ People say that but, then again, why don’t you just call the day before? Or go eat somewhere else?”

Lucky Liza?

Some honeymoon.

Not only have Liza Minnelli and David Gest spent the first days of their marriage tirelessly working the interview circuit in London to maximize their wedding press bounce, they were almost robbed to boot.

Word out of Britain is that, as the couple was being driven away from one of their many TV appearances in a chauffeured car, some pesky youths reached in through a window while the car was stopped at a light and tried to grab the $15,000 diamond crucifix Minnelli was wearing.

Luckily, the couple’s driver figured out what was going on and managed to make a speedy getaway, leaving the kids empty-handed — and Minnelli a bit shaken up.

“It was incredible. It was so terrifying,” Minnelli told the London Evening Standard. “There were these three kids who just picked on us at the lights. They obviously saw what I was wearing and tried to grab it … It was really horrific, very frightening.”

Gest, however, was far less freaked by the attempted manhandling of his wife’s property. “We’re New Yorkers,” he told reporters, “so nothing scares us.”

Let’s just see how the rest of the honeymoon goes.

Found art

Burnin’ down the house

Oops! ain’t the half of it.

Is Britney Spears showing the strain of her new alleged singlehood or does she just have a few things to learn about fire?

According to Spears’ mother, Lynne, the pop princess almost burned down the New York apartment she was staying in the other day after she lit a candle in front of an air vent and then split the scene.

During Britney’s four-day stay in the Big Apple, she and her friends “shopped every day!” Britney’s mom writes on her daughter’s official Web site.

They went “out on the town a few times too,” she says, adding that “one of those nights, they all came in to a real mess! Brit had left a candle burning in front of an air vent. The wall caught on fire, and the fire department had to come to put it out.”

That’s certainly one way to meet one of New York’s Bravest … but it’s not the first time Spears has had bad luck with a flame.

“This is the second time this has happened,” writes Lynne. “Brit left a candle burning in her bathroom in our Louisiana home” and “caught her bathroom on fire.”

Well, we can only assume she had her reasons for lighting a match in there.

    On a weekend trip to buffalo from Toronto we made a pit stop at Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. I took this shot with my nexus 5 smartphone. I was randomly shooting the falls themselves from different viewpoints when I happened to get a pretty lucky and interesting shot of this lone seagull on patrol over the falls. I didn't even realize I had captured it in the shot until I went back through the photos a few days later

    Lucky timing! The oxpecker was originally sitting on hippo's head. I could see the hippo was going into a huge yawn (threat display?) and the oxpecker had to vacate it's perch. When I snapped the pic, the oxpecker appeared on the verge of being inhaled and was perfectly positioned between the massive gaping jaws of the hippo. The oxpecker also appears to be screeching in terror and back-pedaling to avoid being a snack!

    This wave is situated right near the CBD of Sydney. Some describe it as the most dangerous wave in Australia, due to it breaking on barnacle covered rocks only a few feet deep and only ten metres from the cliff face. If you fall off you could find yourself in a life and death situation. This photo was taken 300 feet directly above the wave from a helicopter, just as the surfer is pulling into the lip of the barrel.
