It looks like Bobbi Kristina will get her inheritance just like her mother Whitney Houston wanted. Whitney’s mom and grandmother had contested the will and thought that Kristina would be getting big money, way too young. The case was dismissed after the parties came to an agreement. Apparently, the new deal is almost identical to the way Whitney had planned it. Bobbi Kristina will get 10% when she turns 21, around $2 million, then a little less than 20% when she turns 25, or around $4 million, and the rest, around $16 million, when she turns 30.
Katie Couric got up close and personal last night with Taylor Swift and Leann Rimes, on a special episode of “20/20″. Taylor talked about how she records ideas for new songs on the go. She goes in the corner of the room and sings into her cell phone. Most of it comes out nonsense, and she says you DON’T want to hear the recordings. But she gets enough of the idea down so that she can work it out later.
Taylor talked about where she thinks she’ll be in ten years. She wants to either have a family, or know when she’ll have one. And she doesn’t want to stick around too long in music. If people get tired of her, she’ll start writing songs for other people.
Leann Rimes talked with Katie about why she went to therapy this summer. She never got to be a kid, because she grew up as a performer.

It’s not true, obviously.
By the way, the REAL Justin Bieber showed off two new possessions on Instagram. He now has a HAMSTER named Pac and a tattoo of an OWL on his arm.
Mila Kunis is either pregnant or should’ve known better than to wear a horizontally-striped shirt after eating a big lunch. On Saturday afternoon, paparazzi took some photos of Mila and Ashton Kutcher out walking around and Mila looks like she’s got a belly. And so, of course, everyone immediately jumped on the “Could she be pregnant?” train. We’re a little more skeptical. On October 19th, Mila was photographed out wearing a shirt that showed her stomach and it looks completely flat. Would such a significant baby bump appear in just eight days? We’re going with the “she ate a big lunch and wearing horizontal stripes” theory.
