One of the most popular gossip blogs for the pre-teen set, oceanUP brings you all the latest news on Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, and other stars from hit shows on Disney, Nickelodeon and elsewhere.

Another happy WordPress-to-Drupal migration, Celebrity Baby Scoop is (you guessed it) the place to go for up-to-the-minute information on celebrity babies, and celebrities who have them. The site features a growing community of self-styled User Groups, a custom AJAX-driven Slideshow demonstrating the power of jQuery, and an expectancy calendar indicating all the upcoming due-dates of the stars.
