The Daily Shuffle: Jason Bateman's Wife Pregnant with Second Daughter

  • This seems to be quite the busy year for Jason Bateman. Not only has he played the leading man in several box office hits (Horrible Bosses and The Change-Up to name a few), but now he's about to get an adorable addition to his family. The actor's rep confirms that Jason's wife, Amanda Anka, is pregnant with their second child. Surprisingly, the happy couple weren't the ones to announce the exciting news. Amanda's father, Paul Anka, let the cat out of the bag announcing "I'm going to be a grandfather again. It's another baby girl." It seems to be a week of talkative grandfathers dishing on all the baby details. The couple has been married for 10 years now and are already parents to 4-year-old daughter Francesa Nora. Congrats!

  • Speaking of being together for 10 years, that's how long Sara Gilbert and Allison Adler have been together -- until now. The couple announced yesterday that they have ended their relationship and will share custody of their two children, son Levi, 6, and daughter Sawyer, 4. While many of you probably remember Gilbert as the hilariously sarcastic daughter of Dan and Roseanne Conner on the television show Roseanne, Sara has also developed a name for herself as one of the co-hosts of the daytime show, The Talk. No reason was given as to why the long-time pair decided to part ways, but Gilbert's rep stated that the split was "completely amicable."

  • On a happier and even more interesting note, Forbes released its list of the Most Powerful Women yesterday and named Lady Gaga to be more powerful than Oprah Winfrey. And here I didn't think anyone was more powerful than Ms. O. But sure enough, the financial magazine placed Gaga at No. 11, which is apparently the highest ranking achieved by an entertainer. Meanwhile, Oprah (aka former Queen of the World) was ranked at No. 14. So even though she's the world's only female black billionaire and launched a successful television show while making more than three times as much as Gaga, ($290 million), she pales in comparison to the pop diva in one very important area: Twitter. Her 6.6 million followers doesn't hold a candle to Gaga's 12 million and counting. Oh, the power of social media.
