Nikki's OK! Magazine Hot Stars Column
This week Nikki talks about the Rooney's baby news, Kerry's slurring phone call and how Jack is doing without Jade...
COLEEN AND WAYNE START THEIR FAMILY
Coleen and Wayne Rooney are said to be expecting their first baby, which is great news! I think they are very young to be taking on such a big responsibility, although the baby will certainly not want for anything. They are both very busy people and they'll have to put their careers on hold. I hope the new arrival won't put a strain on their relationship, as babies sometimes do.
KERRY NEEDS TO TAKE CONTROL
The video of Kerry Katona - shot for a new MTV show, Kerry Katona: what's the problem? - which shows her slurring her way through a phone interview doesn't look good. Her career is going down the pan fast, and she needs to save it. I think Mark Croft is bad news for her, but she won't take any of the advice she's being given. I think she's trying to convince herself everything is OK, when it clearly isn't.
MADONNA'S ADOPTION CAUSES CONTROVERSY
There has been a lot of criticism surrounding Madonna's attempt to adopt a Malawian girl named Chifundo 'Mercy' James. Mercy has extended family who could look after her, so I don't understand why Madonna isn't helping a child in more need. She'll have four children soon, perhaps she's trying to show Guy Ritchie that she doesn't need him. I don't see how she'll be able to look after all her kids with her busy schedule, without an army of nannies to help out.
JACK IS STRUGGLING AFTER THE LOSS OF JADE
It must be hard for Jack Tweed to deal with things after Jade Goody's death. He also faces the prospect of going back to prison so things are pretty uncertain for him right now. Jade has made memory boxes for Bobby and Freddy, and I'm glad she got the chance to do that as they will be able to remember her for years to come. It will be tough for the children, but I know their dad, Jeff Brazier, is looking after them and keeping them busy.

I'm taking my mum to hospital for an x-ray this week, so I'm really hoping she's ok. At the same time, I'm having my back checked as I fell down the stairs recently and have been in a lot of pain. The Body Gossip event I attended last week was very emotional and I struggled to read my story, as it had been written by a girl whose experience of anorexia was very similar to mine. I met Natalie Cassidy there, too, who is lovely. Last Friday I went to my friend Christian Guiltenane's birthday party in London. He's the entertainment news editor for OK!
