HOWIE MANDEL is coming back to do another season of "America's Got Talent".  He joins HOWARD STERN, who previously said he'd be back.It's still unclear who will replace SHARON OSBOURNE, who ISN'T coming back.  There's talk out there that it could be ROSIE O'DONNELL or CARMEN ELECTRA . . . but those are just rumors at this point. Howie joked, "I heard Carmen Electra was . . . I don't know if she was doing the show, I heard she might have been doing SIMON [COWELL]."

Alec Baldwin, 54, and his wife Hilaria are expecting their first child together, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. “We’re so thrilled and we can’t wait to meet our baby,” the couple tell PEOPLE exclusively. Hilaria, who is due this summer, announced the news on Extra, where she serves as a Special Correspondent for the show. Baldwin, already dad to daughter Ireland, 17, from his previous marriage to Kim Basinger, and Hilaria, a yoga instructor, tied the knot in June after a three month engagement. “He’s just really happy,” a source told PEOPLE after the couple announced their wedding plans. “They light up the room whenever they are together.”Baldwin, who recently picked up a SAG Award for Best Actor in a TV Series for 30 Rock, is in good company: his former costar Tracy Morgan announced he is also expecting a baby.

The Duchess of Cambridge was vacationing with husband Prince William and her family on the private island of Mustique last week when the long-lens shots were taken. "We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas," a spokesman for the couple at St. James's Palace tells PEOPLE. "This is a clear breach of the couple's right to privacy."The photos – Kate and William walking arm-in-arm on the beach in their swimwear as well as the bikini-clad duchess frolicking in the surf – are published in Chi magazine this week as well as expected in a U.S. tabloid. Six months ago, Chi printed photos of Kate sunbathing topless in France while the couple were on their tour of South East Asia. French magazine Closer also ran those images.
