• Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez welcomed a baby boy over the weekend and last night, the child’s name leaked. According to E! Online, his name is Maceo Robert Martinez. “They chose it because it means gift from God,” said a source. “Olivier wanted to give a nod to his Spanish Roots. They picked the name a while ago, they love it.” This is Berry’s second child and Martinez’s first. [E! Online]
• Queen Latifah’s talk show is off to a pretty good start. Although the show debuted in mid-September, the ratings numbers have just been released. On average 1.8 million viewers have been tuning in daily to the show. Yes, the numbers are solid, but they aren’t quite as high as her competitors, The Steve Harvey Show and Katie. There’s even rumors that the show will return next year. [LA Times]

• Rapper Kanye West is being ordered to stay 10 yards away from the photographer he allegedly attacked at Los Angeles International Airport months ago.
