    • One-time Dick Cheney spokeswoman Juleanna Glover is expecting a child with boyfriend Christopher Reiter, a longtime GOP lobbyist who now owns the Washington, D.C. furniture boutique Muleh.

    • Morgan Spurlock made his name with anti-fast food documentary Supersize Me, so he can't possibly be surprised that McDonald's turned down his request to help sponsor his latest project, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, which is entirely funded by product placement. But the big arches wasn't the only outfit that turned Spurlock down. He was refused by most fast food outlets he approached for the movie, including Weinerschnitzel. [Reliable Source]
    • Controversial documentary The Kennedys, which the History Channel dropped under pressure from the Kennedys themselves, is going to be released on iPad when it airs on ReelzChannel on April 3. [Daily Intel]
