Expectant parents KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST have bought a new crib...but not for their baby. They plunked down $11 million together for a new home in Bel Air.

They're planning an Italian-style villa with a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pool and, yes, a nursery. While all that's being done, the couple is baby-mooning in Paris. When they get back, they may hit the recording studio as Kanye supposedly wants Kim to record a track during her pregnancy so they can play it when the kid gets older.

Perhaps the most exciting moment in the BCS Championship game was the shot of Miss Alabama Katherine Webb rooting on her boyfriend, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. ESPN had to apologize after Brent Musburger said, "You quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women. What a beautiful woman. Wow!" While Katherine says she was flattered, she may not feel the same towards the Arizona Cardinals' Darnell Dockett. He sent Katherine a tweet during the game inviting her to a strip joint.
