1. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend announce pregnancy.

Instagram’s favorite power couple, Grammy Award-winning musician John Legend and model Chrissy Teigen, took to the platform yesterday to announce that they’re expecting their first child. Teigen has been open about difficulties the couple faced trying to get pregnant and said, “It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family.” Teigen also said she “looks forward to all the belly touching.”

2. Playboy to stop publishing nudes.

“I buy it for the articles,” is sure to ring a little truer following Playboy magazine’s announcement that they will no longer publish nude photos of women starting March 2016. The magazine’s redesign is in response to its circulation dropping from 5.4 million 40 years ago to 800,000. Playboy will still feature “PG-13” images of women, but will focus more on investigative journalism and interviews.

3. Leonardo DiCaprio to produce possible Volkswagen scandal movie.

The emissions from the Volkswagen scandal haven’t even cleared the air, but actor Leonardo DiCaprio is looking to the future. DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way has acquired the rights to a book proposal by New York Times journalist Jack Ewing about the corporation’s scandal and a possible movie. DiCaprio, a known environmentalist, would serve as producer.

4. Conan O’Brien to film show in Armenia.

Conan O’Brien is going to Armenia — and it has nothing to do with the Kardashians. O’Brien will be the first American to do a talk show in the country when he films his TBS late-night “Conan” there, later this month. He’ll be accompanied by his longtime assistant Sona Movsesian, who is of Armenian descent. “I think it’s every boss’ responsibility to take their assistant back to their ancestral land,” O’Brien said. The episode will air on Nov. 10.

5. La Barbecue to start dinner service Thursday.

Only two more days of La Barbecue-less dinners. The trailer outside of bar Stay Gold will start serving dinner for the first time this Thursday at 6 p.m. Although all of your favorite flavors are guaranteed, expect regular menu changeups. The first will include pork buns and buffalo quail.
