Does Ash Know Something Pete Doesn't?

Pete Wentz may be blasting those rumors that Ashlee Simpson is pregnant as a "witch hunt," but he's the one who's looking more and more like a bitch – especially since everybody else seems to think Ash actually is pregs.

Even though she was conspicuously mum with her mom when TMZ caught up with her, a source "close to the family" tells People that Ash is pregnant – and she'll be getting married in May. Who's got shotgun?! As is her habit, Ashlee awkwardly danced around the bun-in-oven question with MTV yesterday, saying, "Some things you want to keep personal."

BeJay's Pie Guy Just Tryin' to Make Dough

The pizza man who had to make room for Jay-Z and Beyonce at his Brooklyn joint –- pissing off a food blogger in the process -- tells TMZ that he was just caught between a Roc-a-fella and a hard place.

Lucali owner Mark Iacono tells us that, in the midst of pie-making, he didn't realize that a table of three ladies had made an extra order –- and he didn't mean to rush them out the door, even offering to pay for their next dinner there.

What's more, he didn't vacate the table next to his station for J and B to keep them close – he does that whenever a celeb comes in to keep them away from prying eyes.

Hoff Puts the Ass in Assistant

David Hasselhoff is back on the market now, and he's pulling out all the stops to get the Hoff off.

Gatecrasher says the David used his assistant to try to pick up a chick after a taping of "America's Got Talent," giving the target an autographed photo –- that just happened to have the assistant's phone number, the name of the hotel where Hoff was staying, and an invitation to get in touch.

Didn't work – the woman was giggling about it at a bar afterwards, and not in a good way.
