Busy Philipps Still Has No Logical Explanation For Naming Her Daughter 'Cricket'
Huffington Post - about 3 years
When Busy Philipps named her second daughter "Cricket" in July, everyone was really confused. "What is going on, Busy?" the world cried out in unison. "Why would you name your child after a small, chirping bug and/or bat-and-ball game popularized in Britain?!" Amid the insanity and chaos, Philipps has emerged with an explanation of sorts. Philipps and husband Marc Silverstein received a call from the hospital saying they needed to "come back and name [their] baby," so Silverstein suggested "Cricket" and said that “everyone likes Cricket, Cricket is just the greatest, happiest kid on the block ... she’s hot in college." Back in August, Philipps said that her husband was also rambling about Cricket being a camp counselor: "He just loved that name. He's like, 'Cricket is the coolest girl in school. She's like the camp counselor that you have a crush on.'" No report as to whether six-month-old Cricket has decided to go to college or become a camp counselor.

Whatever Happened To Kerr Smith?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Dawson's Creek" introduced some major stars into the world back in the late '90s, including Katie Holmes, James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson and Busy Philipps. But whatever happened to Jack McPhee?! Kerr Smith portrayed one of the first gay characters on primetime TV, starring as Jen Lindley's best friend on the hit teen drama. With his dark hair and light blue eyes, Smith captivated the "Dawson's Creek" audience and made McPhee one of the most beloved characters of all time. But seriously, where is he NOW? After "Dawson's Creek" ended in 2003, Smith, now 41, appeared in a few TV movies and series, including "Charmed," "Justice" and "CSI: NY." Most recently, he starred in the CW's "Life Unexpected," but the show was canceled after two seasons in 2011. Currently, Smith is set to appear in some smaller budget films. This is precisely why we need a "Dawson's Creek" reunion ... so we can see Kerr Smith on the small, or big, screen again. Here's what he loo ...

She Knows Her Kids' Names Are Weird
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Busy Philipps knows she's given her daughters some strange names: Birdie and Cricket. At the Comedy Central roast of "Freaks and Geeks" co-star James Franco, the actress opened up to E! about the reasoning behind naming her second daughter Cricket. "She didn't have a name for a week," she said. "We were sort of panicking. We had these other, more normal names picked out and none of them suited her." Philipps said "Cricket" was the idea of her husband, screenwriter Marc Silverstein. "He just loved that name. He's like, 'Cricket is the coolest girl in school. She's like the camp counselor that you have a crush on.' I think he secretly had a crush on a girl named Cricket when he was in high school." Philipps gave birth to Cricket in July and just after her name was announced, she acknowledged on Twitter that it might have been a bizarre choice. It's weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be therapy for LOTS of reasons, ...

Ali Larter Bares Midriff on Health Cover, Says It Took Five Months to Lose the Baby Weight
US Magazine - over 3 years
Ali Larter lost her 45 pregnancy pounds the old-fashioned way: by watching what she ate, committing to a consistent exercise routine, and allowing herself time to lose the weight. The cover girl for the September issue of Health tells the magazine she's not one of those stars for whom losing the baby weight was quick and easy. PHOTOS: Jaw-dropping post-baby bods "A lot of women say that they breast-feed and the pounds come right off,'' the actress told the mag. "But for me and [actresses like] Busy [Philipps], who enjoy our cake, it's not going to come off in two months." In fact, it took more than twice that long for Larter, 37, who gave birth in 2010 to Theodore (her 2-year-old son with actor husband Hayes MacArthur). "I gained 45 pounds. Mine came off at about five months, after working out a lot and doing a food delivery service," the actress revealed. PHOTOS: Celebs' pregnant bikini bodies!
