Bring Us the Babies of Jennifer LopezSo is anyone else wondering where the eff Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s babies are? “Page Six” told us yesterday that she had checked into Long Island’s North Shore University Hospital, a story that was picked up by media outlets worldwide. We were expecting today would be filled with rapturous BABY JOY! But it’s been at least 39 hours since she supposedly checked into the hospital, and no gossip magazine shepherds have announced the arrival of the Lo-Anthony twins. Is this the longest labor ever? God, that must suck. We called North Shore University Hospital to see what the holdup was. “Jennifer Lopez?” said the woman who answered the phone. “She’s not here. Definitely not.” Oh. Well. This we were not expecting. Did “Page Six” lie to us? Did the woman from the hospital? She didn’t sound like she was lying. Is it possible she didn’t know J.Lo was there? How do you hide a seven-ton pop star? All we can tell you is that J.Lo either snuck away to Namibia or she is not actually in labor yet. Lopez’s rep, Leslie Sloane Zelnick, did not respond to an e-mail asking if J.Lo’s cervix was indeed dilated and, if so, by how many centimeters. We can’t imagine why.

‘Gossip Girl’ Star Says He Wants to Punch Zac Efron!
At the Gossip Girl premiere party last night, things were running late. The bash started at 7, but by 9:30, cast member Blake Lively was still a no-show. Über-publicist Leslie Sloane-Zelnick loitered behind the red carpet, waiting. “I’m with Blake,” she told a reporter. Of course the biggest star in the show would work with Zelnick, who reps Jennifer Lopez and Anne Hathaway, and helped Britney and Lindsay back in their glory days. “Hey, all these kids are stars!” Zelnick insisted, but that’s not what it looked like. The rest of the show’s cast lingered upstairs at Tenjune, waiting until Lively turned up at 9:45 to enter the hellishly crowded party. The youngest talent, 17-year-old Connor Paolo (OMG! he played a young Colin Farrell in Alexander!) and 14-year-old Taylor Momsen (OMG! she played Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas!!) dawdled in a corner doing what else – gossiping. “The reporters asked me what ‘gossip’ is, and if I could tell them a rumor about someone one set,” said Momsen. “What did they ask you?” “They asked me if I had a crush on anyone in Hollywood, who would it be?” said Paolo. “They asked me for gossip, too. I said I wanted to punch Zac Efron in the face.” Wait, what? “Don’t you think everyone wants to see him get punched?” he asked. Wow, if possible, we love this show even more.
