Back in town: Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his wife, Anne Sinclair, who returned to their Georgetown home over the weekend, the New York Post reports. The couple left New York City on Friday — just days after a judge dismissed sexual assault charges against the former IMF head — trailed by a swarm of paparazzi. Apparently they’re not sticking around too long. According to his lawyer, he’s just hoping to put a few things in order before putting the property up for rent. Strauss-Kahn also scheduled a farewell visit to the IMF on Monday, reports the Associated Press.

Expecting: BeyoncéKnowles, who ended a summer’s worth of is she?/isn’t she? by whipping out her baby-bump during the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. “I want you to stand up on your feet. I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me,” she shouted while rubbing her stomach, making sure that the audience got the hint. The R&B singer’s rep later confirmed the pregnancy to People. First child for Beyoncé, 29, and her husband, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, 41.

Born: A daughter to “American Idol” alum Jason Castro, 24 (the softhearted dreadlock guy took fourth place during Season 7) and his wife, Mandy Mayhall, on Saturday, People reports. First child for the couple, who married in January. They’re calling her Madeline Emilia Castro.

In other news: Rough weekend for “Lost” actor Matthew Fox, who was detained by police in Cleveland on Saturday after allegedly assaulting the female driver of a private bus, ABC News reports. The actor, 45, attempted to board the vehicle uninvited and was denied entry by the driver, Heather Bormann, 29. According to a police report, Fox then “punched her in the chest and stomach area.” The bus driver got a lick in, too, smacking the actor in the mouth, cutting his lip. Fox was not arrested and was later released from police custody.

Quoted: “Somewhere under this water is a KISS pinball machine & 2 gargoyles from the Dynasty tour. If you see them floating past your house, they’re mine. Or at least they were :(.”

— Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach, lamenting the loss of his New Jersey home to hurricane Irene via Facebook on Sunday. The singer posted a few snapshots of his waterlogged and now uninhabitable house, which was knocked off its foundation when a nearby reservoir overflowed. The casualties:a library’s worth of hair metal memorabilia. Spared: his ex-wife and two children.
