KIM’S HAVING HARD PREGNANCY
Kim Kardashian is not having an easy pregnancy. During the Kardashian family sit-down with Ryan Seacrest Sunday, Kim revealed that she’s been having a tough time carrying Kanye West’s baby. “I was waiting for this amazing experience where I could just do whatever I want, eat whatever I want, feel great, and it just hasn’t been that way,” she said. “I haven’t had morning sickness, so I’ve heard that I’m really lucky, and I feel lucky [but] it’s just really painful everywhere.” Kim says she’s constantly crying, but insists, “It’s not even an emotional [thing]–it’s like a pain, physically.” Added sister Khloe, “Her back hurts, her breasts hurt, her stomach hurts, her feet hurt, her head hurts, her eyes hurt, her nails hurt.”
Reese Witherspoon apologized Sunday for her actions in Atlanta over the weekend that ended with her arrest for disorderly conduct. Reese was taken in after she mouthed off to a police officer while her husband Jim Toth was being arrested for DUI. "Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say, I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said," said Reese in a statement. "It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I'm very sorry for my behavior." Meanwhile, Reese won't be talking about the arrest on TV anytime soon. She was supposed to appear on several talk shows to promote her new movie Mud, but has now cancelled all interviews, including tonight's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and a planned stop at Good Morning America.
STILLER SAYS EBERT APOLOGIZED FOR ZOOLANDER REVIEW
Ben Stiller revealed over the weekend that the late movie critic Roger Ebert once apologized to him for his scathing review of Stiller’s comedy Zoolander. In a review published September 28, 2001, Ebert wrote, "There have been articles lately asking why the United States is so hated in some parts of the world. As this week's Exhibit A from Hollywood, I offer Zoolander, a comedy about a plot to assassinate the prime minister of Malaysia because of his opposition to child labor. You might want to read that sentence twice." At the Tribeca Film Festival Sunday, Stiller said he felt the review was “harsh,” and apparently Ebert eventually felt that way as well. “To his credit, I ran into him like five or six years later backstage at The Tonight Show, and he said, 'Hey, I just want to apologize to you. I wrote that about Zoolander, and I [now] think it's really funny. Everything was a little crazy [back then]. It was Sept. 11 and I went overboard.' I said, 'Thanks for telling me backstage at The Tonight Show.'"

TARA REID THROWS FIT
American Pie star Tara Reid apparently thinks she’s way more famous than she really is. According to the New York Post, she threw a fit at the L.A. store All Saints over the weekend when an employee refused to give her a discount. “She was screaming,” said a source. “She had to be escorted out by security. She seemed drunk.” Witnesses say Tara insisted she should get a discount because she’s famous. But a rep for Tara claims she usually gets a discount at All Saints in the UK and in Paris. “She’s a walking billboard for them,” said the rep. “She gets photographed . . . so they give her huge hookups. We told them we get a discount, and they said they’d email the press team.” Tara was reportedly trying on clothes when the sales rep told her she had been denied, and then simply asked them to check again.
