Yeah, Papa Joe, both of your girls have already had their public embarrassment in spades, so give it a rest, eh?

To quote the great band Styx, Never Say Never!

Joe Simpson: This from a man who check out his daughter's butt when she is walking.

Joe Simpson's comments were uncalled for. He would never "let" what happened to Britney happen to his daughters? There's only so much control a parent has over their adult children. In addition, no parent has control over the diseases of alcoholism, addiction or post-partum depression.

I think it's unfortunate that Mr. Simpson has decided to make judgements about a sad situation. At this time, Britney needs the support and love of her family. She is clearly ill. Money and fame do not buy happiness nor do they prevent a person from suffering from mental illness. Her peers, the media and the rest of us should leave her alone and let her get well. I, for one, wish her the best.

Wonderful article about Liz Hurley's wedding. After detailing all the over-the-top celebrations (wouldn't mind being invited, tho'), we hear from the bridal shop manager, "She is the oldest bride we have ever seen."

Papa Joe will do anything to gain attention for himself or to pimp out his daughters -- who seem like decent girls, but I'm not sure that they really live up to the reputation of the snow white daughters of a Baptist minister that Papa would like to sell to the public. It's ironic that he feels the need to judge Britney's parents, when it seems that anyone who actually knows who Papa Joe is thinks that his interest in his daughters (particularly Jessica) is creepy and inappropriate. Talk about someone whose parenting skills are questionable!

Is there an inverse correlation between lavishness of the wedding ceremony(ies) and the length of the marriage? Pamela Anderson & Kid Rock and their multiple ceremonies followed by a quick end to the marriage comes to mind.

If so, Elizabeth Hurley's marriage outta be interesting.

I'm interested in seeing Maggie in the next Batman.

Congrats to Salma.

I had a funny thought about Tom Brady being a baby daddy for two women at the same time but it's gone now. Somebody's been laying seed in the off season. If the story is true of course.

Advice to Tom Brady: Use a f***ing condom for crying out loud?

BTW, congratulations to Selma.

Joe Simpson has no room to talk about any body's parenting skills after his gushing about his daughter's double Ds. What a tool.

Hmmmm, Eddie Van Halen and Britney both in rehab. Who knows, maybe at the same facility? Anyone thinking what I'm thinking....? (Hey, he's already worked with Jacko!)

ps I'm kidding

Looks like Eddie Van Halen has lived hard life.

Eddie Van Halen and his date were sitting near me at a basketball game last year at the Staples Center, and Stick, you are correct -- that man has lived very hard. He looked pretty rough.

Tom Brady, zip it up or wear a condom for crying out loud. Has safe sex gone out of style for celebrities???

Maggie Gyllenhaal rocks. I wonder, will Stepford Katie stopped being offered roles once people realize you buy Katie, you get Control Freak Tom on set for free?

Celebrity Media Sources Go 'Green' in March 2007 for ICEAlity Issues, Not Saint Patrick's Day.
The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) was founded in 1987 bt American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca as a force for socially responsible activity whose mission is 'ICEAlity', that is to "Assist in understanding of the relationship between Humans and their Environment through the Arts for a sustainable Culture of Peace".
