(Newser) – Beleaguered reality couple Jon and Kate Gosselin celebrated their sextuplets’ fifth birthday yesterday, their first public appearance together in 2 weeks, Us Weekly reports. Their bodyguard—Kate’s alleged lover—joined in the festivities, held a week late because Kate reportedly spent their actual birthday, on Mother's Day, at a tanning salon. Elsewhere:

  • TMZ caught LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, who vehemently denied an affair in March, together at a Staples Center bar last night.

  • Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon announced her engagement to longtime girlfriend Christine Marinoni yesterday at a rally supporting New York Gov. David Paterson’s proposed bill granting legal equality to same-sex unions, Access Hollywood reports.
  • Coming out as bisexual seems to be the new Hollywood trend. Singer Fergie jumped on the bandwagon, telling the Sun, “Put it this way, I’ve experimented definitely, but I have never had a steady girlfriend.”
  • Can’t get enough of Michelle Obama’s inspired fashion choices? Soon you can dress her—and Barack—yourself, if you buy their upcoming paper doll book, the New York Post reports.
