Megan Fox and husband Brian Austin Green are already having another baby! Because limiting their pretty gene pool to one child would just be unfair.  "I can confirm Megan is expecting her second child with her husband Brian," Fox's publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnick told Page Six and People . "They are both very happy. " Fox, 27, and Green, 40, who married in 2010, welcomed their first child , a boy named Noah Shannon just last September but it looks like the stork will be a frequent visitor of the Green-Fox home.

Any evaluation of Fred Claire's tenure [March 21] should include this: Claire has presided over the Dodgers during their longest drought without a National League pennant since the 1930s. He has made extremely bad trades and personnel moves (dealing '96 World Series MVP John Wetteland, '90 AL Cy Young winner Bob Welch, Pedro Martinez, Juan Guzman, Eric Young and Henry Rodriguez) and compensated for these poor moves by signing free agents and filling gaps through late-season trades that never seem to pan out (Darryl Strawberry, Mike Blowers, Chad Curtis, Dave Clark, etc.)

In "Wedding Band," which premieres Saturday on TBS, Brian Austin Green, who was on "Beverly Hills 90210" for a decade, plays Tommy, the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of an aging quartet available for weddings and bar mitzvahs in the rocktropolis of Seattle. (Local references in the script include Kurt and Courtney for the masses, the Tractor Tavern for the cognoscenti.) Spun a certain way, the premise might have produced a kind of younger musical companion to sister network TNT's late "Men of a Certain Age. " But this is not that.

The Dodgers could have added Bobby Abreu and Adam Dunn to the 2009 roster for $15 million with the potential to produce 60 homers and 200 RBIs and had $10 million left to spend on pitching. Instead, they're trying to sign Manny Ramirez for $25 million, who has the potential for 35 homers and 120 RBIs, and leaving the team with no extra cash to fill pitching holes on the roster. The economics of baseball just don't add up. Brian Greene Monrovia :: I am amused by the Dodgers' response to the possibility of lowering ticket prices for spring training games (currently $18-$100)

Laura Becher, graduate student: "The Men and the Girls" by Joanna Trollope (Avon). "Trollope's sumptuous detail--from the sights and sounds of a townmarket to the glint of sunlight off the heroine's red curls--envelops the reader from the start. Her books never fail to grant me a brush with a world beyond the bustle of my own life." **** Leslie Bartlett, actress: "Wake Up, I'm Fat!" by Camryn Manheim (Broadway Books).

So the Dodgers are going to fill the gap at shortstop by trading for the Expos' Mark Grudzielanek? A quick check of the stats reveals that over the past two seasons this player has made more errors than he has letters in his surname--59 to be exact. I hope the front office does some more homework before stepping off this cliff. BRIAN GREENE Los Angeles The rumor is, the Angels are offering Jim Edmonds for a starting pitcher. OK, maybe, but every time I hear something like that, I break out in a cold sweat.

BRIAN GREENE Monrovia Why all the mean-spirited nastiness directed at Sasha Cohen? Bill Plaschke's column was the worst. To suggest that she didn't deserve a medal is really hitting below the belt.

Brian Austin Green pokes at a bowl of chicken and rice soup at the 101 Coffee Shop in Hollywood. The 39-year-old actor has a cold that he doesn't want to pass on to his 6-week-old baby son, Noah.

Noah is his son with wife Megan Fox, but Green also has a 9-year-old son with former girlfriend Vanessa Marcil. These days Green, who admits that he was quite the party guy in the past, says his priorities are to take it easy and to care for his family.

Science, which is confusing to many people — some to the point that they regard it as a form of superstition — has always needed its champions, its spokespersons, its interpreters, big brains who also function efficiently as celebrities and have a knack for taking impossible-sounding theories and making them sound, at least for the moment they're speaking, comprehensible. Here comes Brian Greene, again. (He is TV's favorite theoretical physicist.) Like Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking before him, Greene — whose "The Fabric of the Cosmos" begins a four-week run Wednesday in the framework of the PBS series "Nova" — is both mediagenic and a working scientist.

The roster of young celebrities allegedly victimized by the so-called bling ring expanded Wednesday as Los Angeles police detectives said the group targeted Brian Austin Green, Ashley Tisdale and Megan Fox as part of a string of at least 10 burglaries in the Hollywood Hills. So far, at least eight celebrities -- including Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson and Orlando Bloom -- have allegedly had property stolen by the gang that police said was made up primarily of teenage girls, most of whom attended the same continuation school in Agoura Hills.

Stephen Hawking admits his international mega-hit "A Brief History of Time" was a bit of a slog. Translated into 40 languages since its debut in 1988 and selling more than 10 million copies worldwide, the tome is probably the most unread book of all time. Hands up all those who got past Chapter 2. Be honest now. Notwithstanding the legendary arcana of book No. 1, Hawking's second effort at "popular" science writing, "The Universe in a Nutshell," is currently climbing best-seller lists.

A few years ago, Brian Greene, a mathematician and physicist at Columbia University, wrote a witty, deep, yet wholly accessible book on the remote subject of string theory, which deservedly became a bestseller and made Greene the closest thing to a rock star in his field. He was even the host of a TV show based on the book, "The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory."
