How much you want to bet that Nimoy's first thought at seeing Obama flash the Vulcan V was "Oh, you've got to be f-ing kidding me..."

It's nice to know there's at least one kind of wreck that can put the brakes on Bret Michaels, because so far, I haven't seen otherwise.

I'm shocked...SHOCKED that they cut Kim K. from that show. She's all T&A, and isn't that what ballroom is all about?

Oh, and thanks for running the pic of my darling Diane.

Sharon Stone - what is wrong with you? You adopted a CHILD, not a DOLL.

From the article:

"The judge said Bronstein [the father] had a more "simple and common sense approach" to Roan's problem: he made sure he "wore socks with his shoes and used foot deodorant" to avoid "any invasive procedure on this young child."

Sharon sounds insane - and unfit. She went to botox before...socks!

I'm sorry...Sharon Stone wanted to botox her 8-year-old's feet because of foot odor? That's just nutty. Poor kid. Note to Sharon: 8-year-old boys are stanky. Let him be.

That Sharon Stone story sounds amplified for shock value. For all we know, Botox could make medical sense. Whatever.

No more shrimps for you, Russell. Back away from the barbie stat.

"Kim Kardashian" and "Stars" in the same sentence? Nope, still not feeling it.

I have this vision of Jenny saying, "HEY, that's MY rubella shot" and Amanda responding, "Puh-leeze, grrl, you think rubella is an Italian dance. Give me back that hypodermic, you Playboy has-been!"

Oprah's mom countersuing. Un-be-liev-a-ble. Just ask your daughter for the change in her couch.

Nicole Ritchie is old enough to drive? I mean, sure she's had a baby, but still.

The Sharon Stone thing is a classic example of a little info going a long way. She is seriously wackadoodle.

I have a friend's personal story about her that shows just what a [explative for not nice person] she is.

Friend's uncle was a well liked chef in NYC, his wake was hosted by Marriott and at the Marquis downtown, friend was at the front desk asking for direction to the room where the wake was being held. SS walks up and interrupts their conversation with a question.

The lovely person behind the desk says very politely 'I will be with you just as soon as I finish with Mr. X'. To which Mz. Stone replies 'don't you know who I am, and walks off in a huff to find management'.

LTL: Get over you, Marsha Clark! Yeah, a judge did say it, but I thought it might've been part of a larger list stated more for the record and less to make a point about Sharon's craziness.

Of course, upon actually reading that story (I usually hate giving US Magazine web traffic), the judge saying, "Unfortunately, the problem caused by [Stone's] overreactions is painfully real for this child" proves you are correct.

When I read parts of the Sharon Stone article to Mr. Parker, he suggested that Stone could solve the stinky-feet problem by just taking Roan to the zoo so a Komodo dragon could bite off the kid's feet. (Clearly snarkiness is a learned trait in the Parker family.)

The judge says "it's unclear how Stone has 'limited her career to make herself available for Roan.'" Maybe Stone should have run for Vice President instead.

Truly celebrities do not live in the same world as us. When faced with stinky feet of our children, we make them take a bath and use Dr. Scholls. When celebs' kids' feet stink, they don't bother with nanny bathing them, they go right for the cosmetic surgery. It is the cure for all ills. Perhaps that is how Jenny McCarthy cured her child's autism.

Oprah's mom countersues store for $156K bill. From the article: "Court papers say [Oprah's mother] resolved a 2002 case with the company over a $175,000 bill. The resolution prohibited Valentina [the store] from extending further credit to her."

There are two sides to some stories, in this case the apparently irresponsible extension of credit, which is hardly unique to this one store in recent years, of course. If Oprah were to pay her mother's bill (which she could effortlessly afford), wouldn't people start snarking on Lady O for being an enabler?

So, I thought the botox thing was pretty nutty. I did a quick google search and turns out it's a real treatment for really, really sweaty feet. IT treats the sweaty, not the smelly, although the smelly may be caused by the sweaty...anyhoo, it's still nuts to jump straight to botox. I agree with Amelia that maybe trying socks and foot powder would be a better start.

I love, love, love Rosie Perez! I also refuse to ride the subway - ew, ew, ick! I do wonder why Rosie would need to ride the subway, doesn't she have a driver? And, I just simply refuse to believe that she is a "woman of a certain age."

Jenny M - I wish you and your autistic child the very best, but deciding between the slim chance that my little guy might get autism from a vaccination, or the pretty good chance that he might get mumps, measles or ruebella without the vaccination seems like a no brainer to me...we'll get the shots and then have some ice cream!

Starlets walking the red carpet at awards shows have been getting botox in their pits to prevent embarrassing underarm sweat, so it's not surprising that Stone thought of it for her son's sweaty feet, although it should only be a last desperate measure, not the first course of action.

Posted by: to sunnydaze | October 1, 2008 11:38 AM | Report abuse

ok folks, this is my escape from real work but I will give this one free consultation.
Perhaps before we villify SS for seeking Botox treatments for her son we should no all the facts. Yes it is a legit treatment for a condition called hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). A physician would not even consider this treatment esp for a child unless all conservative treatments have been tried and the condition was serious enough to warrant the treatment. He probably suffers from horrible rashes and sores and infections. I do not have access to this patient's protected healthcare information to tell you but the doctor's priority is to "First do no harm". No mother,no matter if she is a real bee'ach or what, will put their child through painful foot injections just for stinky feet. Totally blown out of proportion. I heard this on the radio last night and this made me mad. Thanks for letting me vent. Now onto snarking.

why does Jenny McCarthy continue to uphold her completely wrong opinion? Numerous studies funded by groups on both sides have said there is NO link btwn vaccines and autism.

Sunnydaze, you are right on about immunizations. There are well documented, large scale studies that have shown no correlation of autism with immunizations. People assume that it is the cause because autism generally is diagnosed between 15 mo and 3 yrs of age and guess which shot kids get at 15mo? The MMR. This has been happening even before widespread use of the MMR but we didn't know what autism was then. Those kids were labeled mentally retarded. Get your kids immunized folks. Ok, I will step off my pulpit.

I thought all use of botulism/Botox was essentially off-label and unapproved by the FDA, but I could be wrong. It does seem that there are a myriad of potenial uses for it, tho--from controlling sweating to preventing migraines.

So, after we all spritz ourselves with his cologne, we can give ourselves Frito breath. I'm somewhat ashamed to admit I bought a bag today.

Ok for all who are adament that vaccinations don't cause autism, I'd say to apply the same skepticism to your certainty that you apply to the oppositions certainty that it does.

I am most certainly no doc. but there were plenty of studies out there about the safety of HGH treatments and thalidomyde back in the day... Also I refuse to believe that the CDC doesn't have an agenda (they are some how magically different than any other entity on this planet?)

A great example is the steadfast refusal of the CDC to condem the use of Larium for Malaria treatment despite ample evidence that it causes possible accute psychosis in approximately 10% of users.

I don't gots no babies yet, but from what I have researched some moderates suggest that you simply do the vaccinations one at a time rather than 17 bazillion things in one go, which seems both logical and effective as a possible solution.

A personal friend saw an immediate and drastic decline in her childs established verbal and motor skills within 1 week of a course of vaccinations. I don't know about you but that's enough to make me at least want to look at all sides of the argument and possibly do a couple of extra trips to the doc.

I'd also say that neither of the two who started this debate (Peet and McCarthy) could be called dumb on this one, there are plenty of well educated people on opposite ends of this arguement.

Now I'd call it dumb to get all nasty about someone else in who's shoes you haven't walked (aka Ms. Amanda ragging on Jenny M).

OK really stopping now, back to SS and her sweaty feet. If I were her kid I'd ask to get vaccinated stat!

A shared timeframe does not mean cause and effect. Trust people who genuinely, genuinely understand and apply science. People who really, truly want to protect children.
The primary objection to vaccinations lately has been a preservative called thimerosal which contains a trace amount of mercury. Except, it hasn't been in use in ages. Also, many parents with kids diagnosed with autism around the same time as being vaccinated have blamed the autism on thimerosal, only to learn that the batch of vaccine used on their kids did not contain thimerosal.
I'm oversimplifying a lot. And I appreciate that you don't wanna drag this discussion out, LTL, but as the mom of 2 healthy, bright vaccinated kids, I want to encourage you to research this more if you choose to have children. I love Celebritologizing ever so much. And I know this is out of place.
The person I know at the CDC is bright, fun and very, very dedicated. Lots of doctors who go into government research are. It doesn't pay like private practice. It's something a person does for love. Of course, nothing is certain, but I'm reasonably sure that what we're seeing here is a change in the way and the when of diagnosing autism overlapping with a stepped-up program of vaccination.

The point wasn't that they are vaccinations, the point was that they are examples where studies said something is "safe" when further research showed it was not. They are also examples of times when the CDC (often held up as 'well they say it is fine, so it must be') has an agenda that reflects in it's pronouncements of the relative safeness of something.

Snark on Sara Palin all you want, really has no bearing on me.

OL no worries, we can totally stop after this (pinky promise). I get what you are saying, I really do, and believe me when it comes time, I fully intend to educate myself thoroughly. And I do believe your friends are dedicated and smart individuals.

All I am saying is that if something as simple as breaking out the vaccinations in to multiple doses does no harm and has the potential to reduce risk, it is worth examining as a possibility.

There is so much unknown in this world, yet we find science often speaking in absolutes. It makes me skeptical.

Ok peace out...

The conspiracy theory (CDC's agenda) falls under yet another logical fallacy. If you're concerned about government pronouncements, I encourage to head to PubMed, where all the primary literature can be found. Since it pretty much all agrees that vaccines do not cause autism, either there is a world-wide scientific conspiracy or it's true.

Science can always be swayed by data. It's the True Believers whose minds cannot be changed. You need a little Skeptics Guide to the Universe in you life. There is an excellent primer on logical fallacies there.

LTL - PLEASE do research before you have children and realize that the CDC does many, many, many studies to determine the when, where and with what on the vaccines. My sister is a pediatric infectious disease doctor and my nieces have participated in the studies. Trust me, there is no kick back - the tests are continuing to make sure that the vaccines are effective, etc. It is natural to want to find a cause or place blame on why your child is not "normal" for lack of a better word, but what is amazing is that NO study can provide any link between the two. And honestly, it is extremely selfish NOT to get your child vaccinated b/c you are placing them at risk and hoping that others will get the vaccine so your child will not get some horrible disease that will KILL them. Seriously - there are now cases of mumps everywhere.

Okay, stepping off of soapbox...

Now gotta get back to work....

Botox is not approved to quell odor. It is approved for something called hyperhidrosis, which involves excessive armpit sweating, not odor. I don't even know of any clinical trials that are testing botulinum toxin type A for this matter. If anything, Ms. Stone might make her son's feet drier by injecting Botox but she certainly won't make them smell any better.

Sorry to bring this back to the mundane, but I'm back to report on the McGraw Fritos. I would like to say that I at them as a public service to my fellow Celebritologists (I did it so you didn't have to?). Actually, td got it right--I just didn't learn my lesson with the cheddar jalapeno Cheetos.

The McGraw Fritos are nasty. They have an unpleasant musty flavor that is almost overwhelmed by searing (to my sensitive taste buds) hot sauce. Luckily, they're marked "limited edition."

I really don't know why I keep falling for this. I must have been over-vaccinated.

Late to the snarkfest today. Delighted to hear that Kim K, and her oversized rear end, have departed DWTS.

The SS hotel incident reminds me of my favorite "do you know who I am?" story. We're at airport, weather messing with flights, airline personnel under siege by angry passengers and this jerk muscles his way to the front of the group and starts berating the staffer to get him on the flight. She starts out with the same kind of "I'll be with you in a moment, sir" nice brush-off to which he draws himself up with a sneering "do you know who I am?". She just stares at him for a beat. Then she picks up the intercom and announces for the entire gate area that there's a man at the desk who doesn't know who he is and if anyone knows him to please come forward. 200 people cracked up. I've been waiting to use that line ever since, so I hope Sharon Stone pops by sometime.

Betty, if I wasn't brain-damaged before the McGraw Fritos, I think I am now. They certainly gave me hot flashes from the spices. Once again, I couldn't finish the bag. (At least I knew better that to pair them with the Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper this time or I'd be calling 911.)

By Jenny M's criteria, our son has been 'cured' of autism because we got him private services when we were waiting for an evaluation. As a result, he doesn't qualify for a label, even though the evaluators readily agreed he would have a year ago.

Of course, Jenny's 'cured' son remains on a special diet with a range of therapies and home schooling with carefully chosen providers.
