Jessica Simpson has supposedly already picked out a name for her baby on the way.

Ace.

No, I couldn't make that up if I tried.

A source told Us Weekly the "Fashion Star" mentor is eagerly sharing the name she picked out for her second baby with fiance Eric Johnson.

"(She's) told people she's going to name the baby Ace!" the source told Us Weekly.

That's right ... Ace. As in "Frehley." As in "Ventura."

Ace.

Simpson, 32, has 10-month-old daughter, Maxwell Drew. Last year, Simpson revealed that Maxwell's name came about as a tribute to her family and that of her fiance, a former player with the San Francisco 49ers. Maxwell is Johnson's middle name as well as his grandmother's surname, and Drew is Simpson's mother Tina's maiden name.

And this name is, what, a tribute to the couple's shared love of "KISS Alive II?"

Simpson and Johnson first confirmed their second pregnancy via Twitter on Christmas day.

DRAKE MAY BE CAUSING TROUBLE AGAIN: Drake may be getting between Rihanna and Chris Brown.

"Chris and Rihanna had a big bust-up at the Grammys over Drake. She was messaging him and Chris saw and it didn't go down well," a source told British publication The Sun. "Since that night they have barely spoken and have been doing their own things."

According to the Huffington Post, that may explain why Rihanna and Brown went to the same club one night last week but didn't sit together or acknowledge each other.

Last summer, Drake and Brown had an exchange at a New York City club over Rihanna. The rumor was that Brown sent Drake a champagne bottle, only to have it sent back with a note from Drake saying he hooked up with Rihanna. Drake was also rumored to have hooked up with Brown's ex, Karrueche Tran.

C'mon, fellas. There are plenty of self-absorbed, attention-seeking diva fish in the sea.

According to the Sun, Drake is back in the picture for Rihanna, which is why she and Brown are no longer together.

BRITISH MEN DON'T FIND KRISTEN STEWART ATTRACTIVE: Kristen Stewart was voted the "least sexy" actress in Hollywood in a poll conducted by U.K. gadget website, MenKind.co.uk.

According to the Press Association, the 22-year-old Stewart was ranked less attractive than Sarah Jessica Parker, Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton and Tilda Swinton, among others.

Whoa.

"Our Oscars poll has been a fascinating insight into the minds of British men - it's shown that sexiness is far more than appearance," a spokesperson for the company said in a statement, via the Press Association. "They were turned off by volatile and moody actresses as well as ice queens. And they don't want to see unhealthily skinny starlets on the big screen."

British men have good taste. Except for maybe Robert Pattinson.

The "Twilight" star has done better in the United States, where she was voted No. 13 on FHM's "100 Sexiest Women" list in 2011 and No. 7 on AskMen.com's Top 99 Women of 2013.

Stewart has addressed her looks before. "I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph," the she told Vanity Fair, in the magazine's July issue. "I get some serious (expletive) about it. I'm not embarrassed about it. I'm proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, What an actress! What a faker! That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like (expletive) in half my photos, and I don't give a (expletive)."

Obviously not, or you wouldn't not be talking about it so much.

LED ZEPPELIN MAY REUNITE AFTER ALL: Robert Plant has hinted that he may be open to a Led Zeppelin reunion after all, according to Rolling Stone.

In an interview with Australia's version of 60 Minutes, the singer denied he's the reason for the band not following up on it's successful one-off show in 2007 in London.

"(Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones) are Capricorns. They don't say a word. They're quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me," said Plant. "I'm not the bad guy. You need to see the Capricorns — I've got nothing to do in 2014."

So, he's calling them goats?

Plant, Page and Jones reunited to play London's O2 Arena on December 10, 2007, with Jason Bonham drumming in place of his late father, John. Page and Jones said afterwards they were willing to tour, but Plant seemed disinterested, as well as tied up with other projects.

Page and Jones considered finding a replacement before abandoning their plans, said Rolling Stone. Their 2007 show was released as "Celebration Day" last year. In November, Page told the magazine Plant "was busy." The band also entered talks for a streaming music deal last month.
