Despite her best efforts to make her newborn sick, Tori Spelling –- everybody now, sigh of relief –- gave birth without incident. Mazel tov!
Stella Doreen McDermott was born yesterday via C-section, and weighed six pounds, eight ounces, and no amount of listeria-laden soft-serve or hot dog could keep the baby from kicking healthily and happily. "I have my beautiful little boy and now I'll have my little girl," she told People.
Tori and hub-manservant Dean McDermott already have a one-year-old boy, Liam Aaron. Oh, and their reality show starts next week.

And the buzz is that their low-ball strategy – wherein they failed to call the alleged video victim as a witness – could backfire and send their client to the clink for a long time. Leaving her out, says one expert to the Chicago Sun-Times, might cause jurors "to speculate she had some inducement not to testify."
The prosecution returns today to hammer home their point about the mole.
Bros Get Plenty of B.J. in Brody's Show
Brody Jenner's new series is both brilliant and despicable.
The ultimate bro will be getting his own MTV strip, reports the Hollywood Reporter, in which a bunch of guys get to compete in man-sport like skydiving and dealing with the paps, and if they don't make the cut, they will have to leave the show's bachelor pad dripping wet in a swimsuit, holding their bag.
Even better, the bros will get "group date" and "alone time" with B.J.

They're not clowns per se, but the celebs on NBC's "Celebrity Circus" are definitely finding out just how silly the circus can make you look. The New York Post reports that Christopher Knight, Stacey Dash, and Janet Evans have all been nicked – and repaired – in the making of the show.
