Good Read
Sir Roger Moore would not exactly say that he is looking forward to seeing Quantum of Solace, the new James Bond film. "Errrr." A long pause. "Hmmmmm." A raise of the most famous eyebrow in the world. "I'm curious to see it. I thought Daniel Craig did a very good job in the last one, having been attacked by all and sundry. Wait until the baby is born before you start criticising it, I say!" -- Daily Telegraph

"Maddie is the best baby I have ever seen," Lynne added. "She is like a little angel. She's so contented. She laughs and she coos and ahead of herself with her stages. But of course we can't tell that because then we would just glamorize it more.""


Was Lynne Spears really a teacher? Does this nitwit have a college degree?

Clay Aiken is gay??? What????

Posted by: Osteph | September 24, 2008 8:30 AM | Report abuse

Why do the stories keep saying Sharon Stone is losing "physical" custody of her son? What other custody is there? Is she - Gawd help the boy - somehow still responsible for his "emotional" or "mental" custody?


Good for Clay & LiLo.


"Fertility waters," eh? Seven pregnancies? Sounds like the production company should pony up for paternity tests all around.


Lynne Spears has her complaints, we have ours. For instance, where's what's-her-name Palin's naked pictures?


"Is TMZ past its prime?" Is the Pope Catholic? Are the Kennedys gun-shy? Is Anderson Cooper calling Clay Aiken the first chance he gets?


Of course Amy Winehouse's husband chose prison over rehab: you can't get good drugs in rehab.


There's only so much 82-year-Hef ass a girl can stand before she says, "Screw the will. I am outta here."

the other kind of custody is legal custody, wherein you have the right to be involved in choices for the child involving health, education, etc. Physical custody is who the child lives with, legal custoday is who makes choices for the child. Often a parent without physical custoday still shares legal custody with the other parent.

So - does Clay Aiken have a boyfriend? A date? Any one other than his "best friend" with whom he's having children?

When was he living a lie? When did anyone ever think he was straight? I'm confused by the coverage - it's not like LiLo, who had boyfriends in the past and now has a girlfriend. I don't get Clay's big announcement - what's new?

Did I miss something?

To OMG!: I am not a Lynne Spears fan by any means, but I think your comment was unwarranted in this specific situation. She isn ot trying to spew child psychiatry here.

No, the difference is that her mother runs on a platform of "purity and morality." While mommy and daddy were busy advancing the abstinence only/anti-choice message, Bristol was out partying like a snow machine star. In other words, while she spreading her self-rightous agenda in the WAPO interview right after Trig's birth, her daughter was spreading something else.

Note to Meg Ryan: Well, DUH!!! One of the reasons he had a kid with you without marrying was, he didn't want to be tied down.

The Pitt-Jolies remind me of royalty of old. They had to move often because they literally destroyed the area where they were living and they needed to leave for the next castly to allow time for recovery and repair.

Here's the final word:

"Lynne Spears says Jamie Lynn was crucified while Sarah Palin's family was celebrated."

We're talking mixed points of reference here. Mama Spears seems to think that it isn't fair that her family (the Beverly Spearsbillys) should be held up for criticism while Mama Palin's (Wasilla Hillbillies) isn't.

My greatest hope for LiLo is that she's able to achieve sobriety, build a first-rate acting career, find personal happiness and refrain from inane public behavior and statements (even though it would give us less to snark about).

Julie Cypher left husband Lou Diamond Phillips, who as I recall didn't take it well.

Anne Heche has claimed that as a child she was molested by her father, a Baptist minister. He later came out as gay, and died of AIDS in 1983. Anne's mom, described as a Christian psychotherapist, reportedly spoke at a cure-gayness type meeting in Anchorage, at which Sarah Palin also spoke, about how Anne was able to overcome her lesbianness (Anne has a different take on this, however). Yet ironically Mrs. Heche seems not to have dicussed how hubby went from straight to gay.

I believe that Mama Spears is all in a snit because she feels that the criticism of Jamie Lynn reflects badly on her while Bristol Stomp's pregnancy isn't reflecting poorly on Mama Palin.

The whole thing has to do with raging teenage hormones, the faact that sex feels good, bad judgement, and worse luck.

Not exactly a swimsuit, but I bought a reprint facsimile of a 1950s British hand-knitting book in which one of the unnamed models is unmistakably the young Roger Moore. Allowing for a half-century of hair- and clothing-style differences, I can vouch that Roger was as hot as any of today's young male stars.

I'm gonna have to agree with Lynne Spears on this. When Jamie Lynne's pregnancy was announced, the righteous religious right came out blaming hollywood and liberals and bad parenting. When Bristol Palin's pregnancy was announced, she was touted as courageous for making the "decision" to have her baby, even though Sarah Palin would work to make sure no other woman could have that "decision".

Not to harsh on your snark, but Kidman is invoking an ages-old pregnant lady trope: There's something in the water.
When I was pregnant with my 2nd, there were two other women at work knocked up as well. Everyone in the office made jokes about bringing their own water to work, theatrically stepping around us as we waddled around the office, that kind of thing.
She may be a krazy ex-Scientologist, but I'm pretty sure she knows she didn't get impregnated by a waterfall.

Amelia at 11:25--Brangelina can't just pick a country and stay put because they are working actors, and movies shoot on location. The article clearly states that they are renting that house for 90 days, and that three weeks from now Brad Pitt starts shooting "Inglorious Bastards" which is shooting at least partly in Germany. So they move to a house near where he is going to be shooting. Makes perfect sense to me.

I really hate to agree with Lynne Spears about anything, but Jon Stewart already made her point rather eloquently here:

According to NJ.com:

"Aiken fan sites went crazy Tuesday night, when People announced Aiken would be appearing on the cover. Many fans were supportive; some were still disbelieving ("PEOPLE MAGAZINE IS FULL OF BULL! Clay if you read this, please tell us if that's true"); but a sizable contingent either felt they couldn't support a gay idol or were dismayed because they'd been "defending" him from the gay rumors, lo, these many years."

Californian, I know we've discussed this and respectfully disagreed with each other on some of the finer points, but I thought we'd more or less agreed that the most important part of "stability" for children was the solid presence of parents more than a single geographic location. In this case, the move is because Brad is shooting in Germany shortly. Is it better that Angie and the kids stay in France and Brad flies in on weekends or that he comes home to them (and her) every night? I vote the latter.

This type of moving around has been their life all along, for all we know the kids get bored if they're in one place for too long! Unless they quit acting in movies, it's going to continue like this because they want to keep the family together, which is the most important part.

I think they're all very fortunate. But just my opinion.

Sad as I am to see the Dane Cook danecook story go away, this from Defamer:

Dog Poop Lawsuit, Settled! Yesterday, we brought you the news that comedian Dane Cook was refusing to vacate the apartment he was evicted from, claiming that if he moved out, he would lose the spiritual influence of former tenants John Belushi and Steve Martin forever. Perhaps sensing that his argument was flimsier than the plot of My Best Friend's Girl (though more original), Cook's lawyers have now appeared in court to state that Cook has abandoned his appeal. He also has agreed to pay his landlord an undisclosed amount stemming from the original argument that prompted the eviction: that Cook never picked up the his pet dog's excretions. To be fair, who would ever expect Cook to be well-practiced at shoveling sh*t? [TMZ]
