And baby makes ... four? Well, not just yet. But Kristin Cavallari says she and her new hubby, Bears QB Jay Cutler, may not be far off. "We are both ready for baby No. 2," she told E! News. "I don't have any announcement today, that's for sure, but we're gettin' there. " (Does Jay know about this?) To give Chicago's No. 1 hottest football/beach-themed reality show couple more time to talk about giving 10-month-old Camden a brother or sister, we decided to plot the next few decades of their lives.

The juiciest celebrity gossip machine of 2014 just keeps getting juicier. Following the release Monday of security camera footage that allegedly shows Solange Knowles attacking brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator, Jay and wife Beyonce appeared courtside at a Brooklyn Nets game. The New York Daily News is reporting that Solange blew up after Jay decided to ditch Beyonce to attend Rihanna's Met Ball after-party. Yeah, we'd be pissed too. Since all parties are keeping their lips tightly zipped, we can only speculate about what went down here.

**1/2 (out of four) "Trishna" opens as if it could be an Indian cousin of "The Hangover," as Jay (Riz Ahmed of "Four Lions") and his fellow vacationing dudes either lounge and laugh freely or lay around nursing the night before. Few of the women in this somber story possess the same unencumbered control over their lives. So when Trishna (Freida Pinto of "Slumdog Millionaire") and her father are injured when he falls asleep at the wheel, she would be foolish not to take Jay up on his offer to give her a job at his father's hotel.

Sure, floor tickets to see Mr. Carter and Mr. West at the United Center might be a staggering $250, but that's the price if you're looking to get a taste of the rap mogul lifestyle. After all, many of the goods mentioned on "Watch the Throne" have a pretty exorbitant price tag. Check it. Lyric: "What's that jacket, Margiela?" Song: "N****s in Paris" If you want to look the part while you're rapping along with Kanye, it'll $2,090 to pick up a nice leather bomber jacket from the Belgian designer.

Ever since Kristin Cavallari told eonline.com that Jay Cutler proposed to the reality TV star via text message and later mailed her the engagement ring, we've been dying to know what those texts said. Somehow (OK, we're making it up) RedEye managed to get ahold of them. In honor of Valentine's Day, here's the greatest love story never told. Jay: sup baby. Whatcha doing? Kristin: OMG I'm at the airport headed back to Cali. U? Jay: Oh, just practicing, trying to turn Devin Hester into a real receiver.

Jay-Z has been on top for so long that sometimes it's hard to remember where he began. The rapper, who grew up in New York's Marcy projects, started from the bottom and now he's chilling with the President. Some people say the Jigga Man has lost touch - it can be hard to see the people when your throne (with Kanye as sidekick) is so tall - but he certainly has built himself up to an impressive degree. Upon the release of his 12th studio album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” we decided to rank his assets of influence.

Jay Cutler spoke about a wide range of topics Wednesday, but what did his words really mean? Let's translate them. ABOUT REHAB, JAY SAID … "It could be I'm done for the season. I just have to be smart about it and realize that there is a long-term picture here. " WHAT IT MEANS "Yeah, I'm totally done. Toast. Stick a fork in me. Even if we make it to the Super Bowl, I'm Audi 5000. "   ABOUT HIS RETURN, JAY SAID ... "I don't want to put a real number on it because I just don't...

Broken Lizard co-founder Jay Chandrasekhar admits that when writing jokes, it's much easier to get raunchy than to avoid the dirt. "We try mightily to come up with bits that are clean, because it's the only way you can get on Kimmel or Letterman," he said by phone. "You can't get on with most of the bits that we write. [But] it's a struggle to come up with clean stuff. " We caught up with Chandrasekhar, a Chicago-area native who shot to fame with Broken Lizard in such cult classic movies as "Super Troopers," "Beerfest" and most recently, "The Babymakers," who returns to Chicago on a five-city stand-up...

When the Bears take the field Sunday against St. Louis, Josh McCown will be the starting quarterback for the third time in four games. The Bears are 2-0 in his starts this year and likely would have defeated Detroit on Nov. 10 had McCown played instead of a still-injured Jay Cutler. But before McCown's success leads to the inevitable clamoring from Bears fans and pundits suggesting that McCown retain the starting job ahead of a healthy Cutler, let's remind ourselves that we have a habit of overreacting to backups' success.

The Carters are coming! The Carters are coming! For weeks rumors have circulated that married icons Beyonce and Jay-Z would headline a tour this summer, and the rumors have now been confirmed: You can see the mega-stars Thursday, July 24 at Soldier Field as part of the “On the Run” tour. The title is a play on the 2013 Jay-Z track “Part II: On the Run” that featured - wait for it - Beyonce. A promotional item for the tour features a photo of the couple in ski masks. Good thing there's no mistaking Mrs. Carter's eyes.

During Jay Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" tour, he's been lending valuable stage time to a random concert-goer to spit his or her stuff for the audience. Thursday night at the United Center, the rapper in question was 19-year-old Monique "Mobo" Burrell of Kankakee. Her charismatic freestyle was captured and passed around social media -- watch the video, here -- garnering largely positive response and getting the attention of the Jiggaman himself. RedEye tracked her down, and the story of how she got that moment to shine will amaze you. ...

As if Jay Z could get any cooler in the eyes of his fans. During his Greensboro, N.C. concert on Sunday, the rapper invited 12-year-old Justin onto the stage to rap one his songs. (Read more of the behind-the-scenes story on TMZ.com ) But Jay Z is no fool. He knows some of his lyrics can be controversial. So he stopped Justin from rapping the part of the song that references "drug dealing," and instead had him jump to the next part of the song. Watch for yourself to see how Justin performed under...

Jay Cutler's career with the Bears has been full of twists and turns. Unfortunately, most of those involve body parts. The "signature" moment of Cutler's Bears career was shivering on the sidelines during the NFC championship game, leading everyone to question his toughness and leadership (you know you did). Which makes Sunday a strange reversal in potentially one of Cutler's last Bears games when fans wanted him out of the game earlier. Since the NFC title game, Cutler has gone out of his way to prove his toughness.

Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari's very long engagement (including the breakup, then re-engagement) looks like it will have its happily-ever-after soon.

In the same interview, the former reality star said the second time the Bears quarterback "proposed," he sent her the ring in the mail.

Jay Cutler is going to have the best year of his NFL career in 2013. Whether you love the Bears quarterback or love to hate him, Jay does not care. (DOOOOOOOOESN'T CAAAAAAAARE.) But what's happened around Cutler is what's important in forecasting his near future. 1. The Trestman factor When Marc Trestman arrives at a new team, offensive numbers surge. He became the Oakland Raiders' offensive coordinator in 2002 - and 37-year-old Rich Gannon threw for 4,689 yards. When he took over the CFL's Montreal Alouettes in 2008, they scored 610 points in 18 games.

For Kim Fukawa and Jay Burckhardt, an accidental pairing led to a joint career in fight design. "We were both teaching assistants for the same class [at Columbia College]," said Fukawa. "We had a lot of free time in the combat office afterwards" - yes, there is actually such a thing, Fukawa admitted with a laugh - "and when we were bored, started messing around with choreography, just seeing what we could do. We got along really well, our fighting styles meshed very well and we choreographed very quickly together.
