The rumors linking Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are heating up again. The singer and DJ were spotted this week shopping together at a Whole Foods in Nashville. Taylor is in town getting ready for her upcoming tour. The duo have been at the center of rumors for a while now after they were spotted hanging out together at the Brit Awards and in Las Vegas earlier this year. Swift has famously dated a number of celebs but has not been linked to anyone since breaking up with One Direction’s Harry Styles in 2013.
It’s a girl for actress Molly Sims! She revealed a picture of her newborn daughter on her Instagram account yesterday. “We welcome Scarlett May Stuber into our family. Our hearts are bigger with you here.” This is the second child for Sims and her husband Scott Stuber. They are also parents to 2-year-old son Brooks.

Ben Affleck couldn’t help but drop a “Batman” reference during an appearance before Congress yesterday. Affleck was testifying before a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee about foreign aid when he paused to acknowledge Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, who has appeared in several movies in the franchise. “I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge my costar in Batman. The role is marginally smaller than mine, but I understand that you are quite good.” Affleck was testifying on behalf of his Eastern Congo Initiative which provides aid to the African nation. Ben’s appearance followed that of Microsoft founder and noted philanthropist Bill Gates, something he also mentioned. “Thanks for having me follow the greatest and most important philanthropist in the history of the world. I’m sure I’m going to come off great.”
Former child star Darius McCrary is out of jail after he was arrested in Michigan for failure to pay child support. The former “Family Matters” star was more than $5,000 behind on his payments, according to TMZ. The judge reportedly gave McCray two options; pay up or spend two weeks in jail. McCray then paid his obligations and was released after only a few hours in custody. Something tells me this wouldn’t have happened if Carl Winslow were in charge!!!
