Hillary Clinton may be eyeing a run for president, but she's about to take on another exciting role: grandmother, People reports.

Chelsea Clinton, 34, is pregnant, she announced Thursday while speaking at an event for the Clinton Foundation's No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, which seeks to empower women globally.

"Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year," she said. "I certainly feel all the better whether it's a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in world filled with so many strong female leaders."

The daughter of Hillary and President Bill Clinton, Chelsea married Marc Mezvinsky in 2010.

Attilio "Buck" Favorini, the founding chair of the Department of Theatre Arts at the University of Pittsburgh, will be inducted into the College of Fellows of the American Theatre this weekend at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The award "honors distinguished achievers ... of recognized national stature in professional and educational theater." This year's other honorees are Frank Galiano, Alan MacVey, Kathryn D. Robinson, Robert Schenkkan, Thomas C. Schumacher, Roberta Uno and Jim Volz.

Twitter feud alert!

Seth Rogen had something not so nice to say to Nancy Grace Thursday after she went on an anti-marijuana Twitter rant.

Grace took to the social media site to share her thoughts about a recent Colorado shooting, writing, "Cops say daddy eats marijuana & goes crazy. He shoots his wife in the head while she pleads with 9-1-1 for help! #PotToBlame?"

"If pot makes you mellow and laid back, why does this guy allegedly turn berserk and gun down his wife? #PotToBlame?" the 54-year-old HLN host continued.

She added, "How many people must die before this stops?! #PotToBlame?"

That's when Rogen, an outspoken marijuana advocate, fired off. "@NancyGraceHLN you are a [expletive] dumbass," the "Pineapple Express" star tweeted.

And believe it or not, Grace responded! "@Sethrogen hi seth! thx for watching!" she posted on her Twitter.

Less than a month after "Scandal's" Columbus Short was arrested for getting into a bar fight, the actor is now in more legal hot water.

On Tuesday, his wife, Tuere Tanee Short, not only filed for divorce from the actor, 31, but was also granted a temporary restraining order, according to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Tuere alleges that her future ex was drunk and threatened to kill her and himself last week, according to the restraining order request. She also seeks full legal and physical custody of their daughter Ayala, 2.

A rep for Short has not responded to requests for comment.

A hearing is set for May 6.

Miley Cyrus is postponing more concerts as she remains in a hospital for a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics, The Associated Press reports.

A representative says the singer won't perform in Nashville, Tenn., on Friday and Louisville, Ky., on Saturday. Those concerts will be rescheduled.

Cyrus suffered from a sinus infection last week during her "Bangerz" tour. Her rep says she had "an extreme allergic reaction" to the antibiotic cephalexin.

This week, Cyrus also canceled concerts in St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo. She postponed a show in Charlotte, N.C., last week because of the flu.

The 21-year-old "Wrecking Ball" singer's next scheduled tour date is Monday in Philadelphia.

Previously unreleased recordings of country music legend Hank Williams performing songs on a 1950 radio show will be released next month for download and on vinyl, according to the Associated Press.

"The Garden Spot Programs, 1950" features 24 songs and jingles from a taped show that aired on early country radio stations, sponsored by a Texas plant nursery. Most of the tapes were lost, but one station, KSIB-AM in Creston, Iowa, saved its copies.

The recordings were transferred, restored and mastered for release May 20 by Omnivore Records.

The singer's daughter, Jett Williams, said in a written statement that no one knew these recordings existed.

Williams' biographer, Colin Escott, wrote the liner notes for the album and said the recordings were used to augment live acts on local radio stations.
