When some people let the world know they’re with child, they do it simply. A phone call to their parents, perhaps an announcement card in the mail, maybe even a simple email or Facebook message.

If you’re Carrie Underwood, that’s far too mundane.

The Queen of Country took to Twitter yesterday to announce that she and hubby Mike Fisher are expecting their first child in the spring of 2015.

And how did she do it?

By dressing up her two dogs in T-shirts that announced they were going to be a big brother and a big sister and posing with them. And they made the announcement in honor of “Labor” Day.

Get it? Because labor is the way pregnancy usually ends, while pushing the new child – in this case, sibling to a couple of canines – out into the world.

The internet was buzzing all weekend with the news that nude photos of some top-shelf lady celebs existed and had been posted on-line.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate Upton were two of the victims. According to all reports, their cell phones were hacked and the nude photos lifted from them.

Jennifer’s lawyers call it a “flagrant violation of privacy.” Kate’s lawyers concur, calling it an “outrageous violation of privacy.”

Singer Ariana Grande categorically denied that alleged nude pictures of her were authentic. Actress Victoria Justice says the same thing.

Actress Mary E. Winstead took to Twitter to respond to people who were actually looking at the pictures.
  Let’s put it this way – whoever this hacker is, he or she has made an awful lot of enemies.

Kendall Jenner is no longer using her surname. She’s going simply by Kendall.

This isn’t anything new, she says. It’s just that the media picked up on it recently, that’s all.

She’s been simply Kendall for about a year now, to make things easier for her as she embarks on a modeling and acting career.

When she was burdened by the surname, it came with the Jenner-Kardashian baggage. “People didn’t want to take a chance on me,” she told Teen Vogue, “I think because I was sort of known.”

Not so much that she was known – just that she was known to be part of the Kardashian Klan.

Of course, she’s still Instagramming like a Kardashian…

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie said they wouldn’t get married until everyone could get married. But it looks like they relaxed that standard a little bit.

It’s old news now that they got married secretly in France a week or so ago. Now the news is that many of their wedding pictures can be seen in the latest edition of People Magazine.

All of their kids participated in the wedding, according to reports. Their two oldest sons walked mom down the aisle. Two of the girls tossed flower petals. And the other two children were ring bearers. Plus, Angelina had her dress designer sew artwork by the kids into her wedding veil.

Brad, who wore a suit out of his closet – why spring for a tuxedo, right? – but ended up having to borrow a tie from his son.

The magazine hits the newsstands tomorrow. So plan to spend a little extra time in the checkout line at the market, checking out the photos.

Meanwhile, you can check out this selection from Instagram, posted the day of the wedding.

Kim Kardashian trimmed about three inches of her hair over the weekend.

Her fans are probably camped out near her mansion, hoping that the Santa Ana winds will blow a lock or two their way.

A treasured keepsake, for sure.

Someone’s going to have to explain to me why a Kardashian haircut qualifies as news.

Right after you explain to me why I’m writing this…

Okay, we can admit it. Kim Kardashian’s rear bumper is probably her best asset.

It’s certainly helped her get where she is today – rich and famous for virtually no reason whatsoever.

Many people suggest that Kim’s had work done on her derriere – implants, perhaps.

Check out this funny and dizzying butt-checking moment that US Weekly on-line captured at last week's VMAs

Singer Usher definitely looks like he’s checking for unnatural resources.

Just when you were getting used to whatever version of the iPhone you have, Apple’s getting ready to come out with the latest (and they would have you believe, greatest!) version of the iPhone on September 9.

No one knows for sure what features will wow us with this new generation, but the front-running theories include:
  • Bigger Screen – you could be talking about a screen as big as 5.1 inches, which means you won’t have to squint as much – you’ll still have to squint, just not as much.
  • Near Field Communication – basically, it could turn your cell phone into a short-range wireless communication device – which sounds like if you’re within earshot of someone, you can talk to him on your phone, but I guess it’s more than that.
  • Sapphire Glass – harder than glass – and this stuff is synthetic, so it’s not like you’ll have a precious gem in your cell phone – unless you’re a Kardashian, and they’ll try to get legit sapphire glass.
Go ahead, get in line. There probably won’t be an iPhone 7 until after Christmas.

Check out this tech report to get more info – it’s sort of like watching a weather report done by a geek about a new bit of technology. It’s a 7-minute-plus video – average turn-off time is just under 60 seconds – how long can you last?

The gasoline market doesn’t seem to be reacting to tensions in the Middle East and the Ukraine.

Instead, they’re dropping consistently – and according to GasBuddy, they’re at their lowest national average since 2010, just $3.45 a gallon for regular.

Your results may vary, of course, but generally, that part of the economy is in good shape.

Which means you won’t have to spend as much in gas to go pick up the every-more-expensive bread and milk this week.

Hey, it’s the little things…

Of course, the folks at Funny or Die have a slightly different take on the situation. Check out this KFOD exclusive report…

ABC’s Once Upon A Time takes fairy tale characters and plops them into the “real world” little town of Storybrooke, Maine.

Interesting premise, as it mixes in characters from fairy tales like Snow White and favorite stories like The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan.

This season, the characters from Disney’s Frozen are dropping in. And people are buzzing about it.

Check out the promo, and then decide if you’ll be camped out in front of your TV on September 28.

Hey, it’s Labor Day – a day to celebrate the American labor movement, dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers.

That’s Wikipedia’s take on it.

To most of us, it just means a day off from work. Or the end of summer. Or the beginning of the school year.

But most of us will have to go back to work on Tuesday, so what better way to spend part of your day off than to plot some fun pranks you can pull on your co-workers.

No one will get hurt – including you, unless of course people figure out you’re the prankster.

Enjoy this little video courtesy of the folks at BuzzFeed. And have a great day off!
