Oh my god, what have they been doing to "Blanket", Michael Jackson's kid. Is this the one who was dangled over the balcony?
I didn't think the "Circus-Circus" was a kid place, but I only know it from reading "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". Maybe it's changed since then.
I don't think I'd let my son have a play date with these folks.

I though Knoxville dumped his wife a while ago.

Well, I guess he sorta did, now they're just making it official.

I don't think that picture lists the right kid. Blanket seems to have grown up soap opera style because that little boy looks older than blanket should be. Or is it just me?

So the train wreck and the parasite are doing the custody thing on a month by month basis? Interesting.

I have a strong feeling that Whitney wants a quick divorce from Bobby so she can make an honest man of Ray J. However, Bobby won't be that easy to shake of.

Seriously, is anyone surprised at the charges going against Bam's uncle. Seriously.

Nice of People to exclude Sara Gilbert's role in The Class! She's great as Richie's wife!

I missed the chat (so sorry, I was so excited for it), and I can't get the link to work to read what I missed out on. Liz, is it just me or is there something wrong with the link?

I see that like Aunt Ada Doom, Tara Conner saw something nasty in the woodshed.

Why are MJ's kids white? I know most people may not remember this but MJ is actually black, not bi-racial, but full-on black with dark skin, wide african nose and full lips and those kids do not look bi-racial in the least.

And before someone calls me racist, this is coming from a black person who remembers when he was a black kid with a 10 foot afro.

DYM: My thoughts exactly! I remember Michael when he was a nice looking young man. It's too bad that, for whatever reason, he has distorted and wrecked his natural being. I find it very hard to believe that these kids are his biological kids.

Is it just me, or is "Jacko" the worst showbiz nickname EVER?

Posted by: Margo | February 2, 2007 11:05 AM | Report abuse

what is it about hollywood that drives folks to such desperation. divorce, drugs, alcohol, child abuse. is anyone trying to fix that place up. sure, they make, by faaaaaaar (remember Bollywood), the best movies on the planet but at what cost. why doesn't someone help these guys. we all like some of them and would like to see them live normal healthy lives but maybe it is something in the water.

Wait a tick. Is Michael still claiming that he fathered those kids? I'm of the school of thought that he adopted them. I miss that afro and the original Michael.

Posted by: petal | February 2, 2007 11:43 AM | Report abuse

Two of them he supposedly "fathered" with Debbie Rowe, the third one, who knows. Which brings me to another outrage, black children in this country are the least likely to be adopted, people would rather spend 10s of thousands of dollars to adopt from China or Russia before they would adopt a black child, so I am highly offended that he (a former black man) would not adopt within his own race.

No, it came out in the custody thing and in the child molestation trial, Jacko is NOT the biological father of the 2 older children. No one knows who is. So, that is why they look so light skinned. Michael hated his dark skin and was not going to have children with the same color skin. Michael Jackson is an idiot.

Blanket's hair reminds me of those cheapie Halloween wigs.

Posted by: Emmie | February 2, 2007 12:57 PM | Report abuse

I think Blanket's biological dad is Marilyn Manson.
Maybe some one made an oops at the sperm bank.

cnn ripped diane keaton's new movie today. an even worse review than the one you listed. delicious.

Oh, Diane Keaton, what happened to you? I love her in "Reds" and hate what she has become: a pawn in the Hollywood romantic comedy machine.
Liz, have you ever seen the movie "The Good Mother"? It is quite good, really. At least a meaty role.
But she does need to break out of her hair/wardrobe rut in her movies at least. And get some of the scraps off of Helen Mirren's table!

Posted by: Barb | February 2, 2007 5:28 PM | Report abuse

Wait -- so Jacko just straight up bought those 2 older kids? Isn't that illegal? Oh, so since he "married" the mother, then paid her off, er, divorced her and got sole custody...
Nobody even tried to stop it. My skin is crawling, what those poor kids must be going through.
I think Blanket is wearing one of those Halloween hats with the hair attached.

Leave Michael Jackson alone! What he does with his body and children (whether natural or bought) is his business, so buzz off (you PERFECT people)!! Michael has been humiliated enough in the this country.
