    Baby showers are one of those things that you either love like rainbows and fluffy kittens or hate with an intensity that cannot be measured. Regardless of how you feel about them, you've probably been invited to at least one, and you also probably had a few minutes of brain meltdown as you pondered the gift you should bring. Unless it's a gag gift party or you just really want to piss off the new mom, there are a few things that you should never gift at a baby shower. Things like these:

    If you're planning on hosting a baby shower, there is one adorable showstopper of a dish you have to make. No, it's not a freaky baby cake. It's a baby shower fruit salad: A feast of fruit inside a watermelon carved to look like a bassinet, with an orange or grapefruit rind made to look like the baby's face. You can see in the photo here it's an adorably funny idea. And like any fruit salad, you can definitely put your own spin on it. Here are the basics on how to make a baby shower fruit basket.

    I was visiting a friend this past weekend and we got to talking about baby advice. As you might guess, with four kids, I often get asked what tips I'd give to new moms.

    Over the years, I've come up with some pretty great answers, but the advice my friend gave at a recent baby shower topped any of mine. In fact, it's so awesome, I'll be doling it out whenever I can (with credit to her, of course).

    Did you hear about this baby shower note that's gone viral? Apparently an expecting mom sent her friend a rude but rhyming note after she failed to show up for her shower, or even send a gift. You have to hear it to believe it -- and maybe then you still won't believe it, because it's so outrageously impertinent it has to be a hoax, right? Or ... maybe it's the real deal.

    At any rate, Bridezillas aren't the only ones to turn a party into a nightmare. Introducing the Baby Showerzilla -- the woman who terrorizes her baby shower guests with her outrageous demands and behavior. Here's some of the worst real-life examples women have ever seen.

    Teen Mom's Jenelle Evans tends to be one tough cookie who doesn't even have TIME for anti-fan lash-outs on Twitter and Facebook. That's what makes her latest move even more shocking. After getting upset over haters sharing her baby registry info on Twitter, she faced a huge wave of criticism over what she and baby daddy Nathan Griffith had asked for from Babies R Us for their upcoming showers.

    Then, in the wake of all the mud-slinging, Jenelle actually ended up deleting her registry altogether!

    The MTV star posted several fed-up tweets about the fiasco yesterday ...

    I know she's a reality TV star and all, which kind of sets her up for people being all up in her biz -- but would you believe somebody went and posted baby registry info in Jenelle Evans' name to Twitter? Yes, for reals.

    And from what it looks like -- the registry isn't even the real deal, being that it's in the name of Jenelle and her ex, Courtland Rogers.


    But even though it's a fake -- Jenelle certainly ain't happy about it.

    When your name is Gwen Stefani, it makes no difference if you're pregnant with your first, second, or ninth child. If you want to bask in the glow of your celebrity friends at a swanky baby shower thrown in your honor, then gosh darnit, you'll make no apologies about doing so! The No Doubt singer was treated to an elegant soiree at Hotel Bel Air this weekend to celebrate the upcoming birth of her third child, another boy. The guestlist at her baby shower sounds identical to one you'd imagine surfacing for an Academy Awards after-party: Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie, Kate Beckinsale, and Rachel Zoe were among the celebs who joined her for lunch, wine, blue-frosted donuts, and baby shower games (I'm dying to know what they gave out as prizes for winning baby Bingo). 

    But hold on a minute. Is anyone on earth -- celeb or not -- supposed to have a baby shower to celebrate baby #3? Aren't there strict unspoken rules about this?

    Well, well, well -- what will they think of next? Would you believe there is such a thing as grandma showers? Yes, as in a party for a grandmother-to-be, when either her daughter or daughter-in-law is preggo. You know, to give her tons of attention and get her all stocked up on supplies for the baby nursery that will be set up in her house when junior comes to visit.

    And that's all well and good. It really is. And if my own mother had been thrown a grandma shower? I would've been totally cool with it. I'm an only child, and I'm on the "one and done" plan as far as having kids goes -- so having my son was her one and only shot at doing the whole grandma thing. It would've been cute if her friends had wanted to celebrate that with her.

    I never thought I’d say this -- Simon Cowell is so sweet! I know, right? But it’s true. The apparently smitten dad-to-be planned and hosted a baby shower for his pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman on Sunday.

    They may be expecting a son, but the party was totally girly. Cowell organized an English themed tea party at his Beverly Hills home. The ladies set up in the back garden and noshed on mini sandwiches, cakes, and tea (wine and champagne for those who inclined to indulge).

    Having your baby shower can be a fun -- if slightly overwhelming -- experience. It's a day where the mommy-to-be feels the love of her family and friends rain down upon her. The good wishes for the future of the new little family are given by all and sundry, there are presents, and people drink sugary beverages. It's also usually your friends' chance to show you just how much good taste they've got when it comes to decorations.
