'Octomom' to Dish Parenting Advice

Paul Warner/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Remember "Octomom," the woman who gave birth to octuplets in January of 2009 and is mother to six other children? She's about to start making cash by giving parenting advice, reports TMZ.

Nadya Suleman has agreed to start her own Internet show on Ustream via an apparent six-figure deal with a production company.

The show, set to debut later this month, will see Suleman streaming live advice every Sunday on topics such as diet, nutrition and shopping on a budget.

Jessica Simpson Confirms She’s Pregnant

Alo Ceballos/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Jessica Simpson waited until Halloween to confirm the obvious: she's pregnant.

On Monday afternoon, she wrote in a tweet, "!!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!!" It was accompanied by a link to a picture of herself dressed as a mummy for Halloween and holding her baby bump, along with the message, "It's true -- I'm going to be a mummy!"

Her rep later confirmed to ABC News, “Yes, she’s going to be a mom.”

The pregnancy rumors surrounding Simpson, 31, began to swirl in late September, and they only intensified after she was photographed about a week ago at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport with a baby bump.

This will be her first child with her fiancé, former football player Eric Johnson.

Celebrities Embracing Concept of House Wives

Eugene Gologursky/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Before hospitals became part of the basic standard of care, women gave birth at home. Now, it seems that home birthing is back.

Hollywood moms are increasingly opting to have their babies at home rather than in the hospital. Jennifer Connelly, Gisele Bundchen, Alanis Morissette and Alyson Hannigan are all new moms who are part of this growing trend.

So is actress and former talk show host, Ricki Lake. She told ABC's Good Morning America about her reasons for choosing home birth.

"With TMZ and paparazzi, it was nice not to leave and not have cars chasing you and trying to get the picture of your baby," she said.

In fact, Lake has become the face of Hollywood home birth. In her documentary, The Business of Being Born, she showcased the water birth of her second son, Owen.

"Your own space is so sacred. Something about being home and not having to pick up and leave and to not be in a place where people are sick and there's germs and everything is so sterile and cold and impersonal. Just having freedom," Lake said.

For her soon-to-be-released follow-up film, Lake interviewed singer/songwriter Pink, and supermodels Cindy Crawford and Gisele Bundchen.
