Madonna's divorce settlement: Does Ritchie want it all - lock, stock and two smoking barrels?


Guy Ritchie doesn't understand Kabbalah. And yet, he could understand Brad Pitt's character in "Snatch."


Dorkus, I fully expected to see your name in those Halle Berry revelations. My condolences, man.


Princes William and Harry motorbike across South Africa. The Lovely Mrs. byoolin says only Canadians say "motorbike," Liz Kelly.


Here's hoping Mr. Blackwell gets buried in a really ugly suit.


How we know she's adopting: Katherine Heigl has already announced she will not accept any Parent Of The Year Awards.

I'm on Team Guy, but I do think that he bears some responsbility in participating in this adoption of a child who still has a living parent and who Guy never really seemed to want.

Guy HAD to know that Madonna was just trying to fill some selfish need - or, hopping on the celebrity-adopts-child-from-poor-country-bandwagon.

The article:

"David's father told The Sun newspaper in London that his natural son shouldn't be in the middle of a messy divorce now that Madonna and Guy Ritchie have announced their plans to part ways.

"This woman, Madonna, told me herself that David was beautiful and made her happy and she promised to take good care of him," Banda said.

So now, instead of no mother, the child will have no father. No father b/c Guy didn't want him and he's cut off from his natural father by geography, etc.

So, Madonna wants to have a "natural" child with A-Fraud? Is she not aware that she's 50?

She could possibly have *biological* children with him, if she froze her eggs some years back & got a techonolgical assist, but 50-year-old women do not have natural children.

What's with this new crop of SNL actors who can't tear their gaze away from the tele-prompter. This guy only looked at Mark at the end, after most of his dialog was done. It just seems so unprofessional to have the cast staring off at stage left or right while the one talented person in the sketch is actually looking AT the person he's talking to. Oh, I miss the good old days...

Did David Duchovny's relationship with tennis coach end marriage?... That and his relationship with the neighbor,his baby sitter,his stylist, his groupie, his dental technician and the bag girl at the local Safeway.

Poor little David. What are the chances of his life being normal? I agree with his biological Dad. Perhaps he would be better off in Africa. Its true that money can't buy happiness.

My kids are adopted -- are they my "birth" children? No. However, they are most certainly "real," "natural," and "mine." No one will convince me otherwise -- they are neither synthetic nor unnatural.

(Well, at least that gives me a few ideas for my new WaPo handle. Hmm.)

I get td's point (I'm a birthmom myself, & consider my daughter to be my *biological* child, & her actual parents to be her *natural* parents), but I really don't think that's what Madonna was saying. YMMV.

Even..., the biggest culprits Saturday night were Adam Sandburg and Alec Baldwin. Alec never looked at Palin once. And perhaps they should have placed the teleprompter behind Mr. Walberg instead of Mr. Sandburg.

Or Lorne shouldn't be such a cheapskate and buy a second prompter.

I've a feeling that they really didn't believe Sarah would show up and (a) had Walberg there as a back-up and (b) threw the whole thing together at the last minute when both Palin and Walberg were there.

Michael Palin walks out in full, Sarah Palin drag, challenges Tina by saying that she simply lacks the experience as a comedian to do this parody. He takes over the press conference.

Sarah Palin walks out and challenges Michael Palin by saying that she has enough foreign policy experience to know that he's British and, therefore, unqualified to parody an American candidate for VP. She takes over and delivers the opening tag line.

Except it appeared that Elian's dad was okay w/him being in Florida as long as he was with his mom. When his mom died, I think he thought it made sense for the boy to be back home with him On the other hand, David's dad didn't appear to have an issue with his son being in an orphanage when his mother died until Madonna came to adopt him. He (David's biological dad) has been in the peripheal spotlight ever since then. I bet everything that little David would still be in that orphanage had Madonna not adopted him.

Stephen Baldwin Challenges Obama To A Boxing Match

Actor Stephen Baldwin has found inspiration in Lindsay Lohan's father Michael - challenging U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama to a fighting match in the boxing ring.

Baldwin reportedly sat ringside in support of Lohan during a recent training session in preparation for his charity face-off with a computer company millionaire in an upcoming slug-match next month.

An outspoken supporter of opposing candidate John McCain, the actor has vowed to leave the U.S. if Democrat Obama is elected into office in November. And he's taking his cue from Lohan in yet another rant against the Illinois senator.

Baldwin tells the New York Daily News: "I'd like to knock some good sense into Barack. I wouldn't hurt him. But if he wins the election, he'll hurt me. He's a cultural terrorist."

Obama was supposed to be on SNL for the season premiere and had to cancel at the last minute

ep, I have a legitimate reason for not wanting to listen to Sarah Palin, I can't stand the sound of her voice.

I'd be happy to debate policy with her via text-message.

Isn't it The Daily Show, not SNL, that's supposedly the biggest influence on our youngest voters? Tina Fey may get in a great Palin impression for a while, but she'll get bored because there's only so much material to work with there.

I'd bet that Jon Stewart and Co. will continue to be the gold-standard for politicians who want exposure. SNL's too inconsistent overall.

(As for Obama cancelling SNL at the last minute, well if 90% of life is showing up, perhaps there's more to that story. Just sayin'.)

Queen Liz, Thank you so much for the link to Halle Berry discussing the Big O on the other Big O's show. The pix were scrumptious. Byoolin, if you have not yet perused the Halle Berry pix, I highly recommend them.
After looking at all of them, I can say without reservation that Halle the recent Mom is waaayyy hotter than the thin Halle of years past.

Ms. Snatchquatch and I missed Sarah Palin's weekend update appearance on SNL. We could not ensure Saturday's show after the horrid skit about the uber-anxious woman spoiling the engagement announcement in the Benihana. We should have reminded ourselves of our SNL rule, gained from 30 years of watching: if the first 5 minutes don't make you laugh, the rest of the show certainly will not.

from the Rose McGowan article: " McGowan has never been married before, whereas Rodriguez has already had five children together with Elizabeth; Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rogue, and Rhiannon. "

I detect Elias Howe's handiwork. Don't try to deny it!

I don't trust the Baldwin brothers to keep their word when it comes to leaving the country.

Posted by: petal, my registered name is way less cooler than this one. | October 20, 2008 2:36 PM | Report abuse

Alec apparently doesn't know the difference between effect and affect, but whatever.

I'm kind of sad about the end of the successful marriage/partnership Rodriguez and his wife had. I loved watching the extra videos on "Once Upon a Time in Mexico"--RR's ten minute cooking school to make puerco pibil; RR playing guitar and recording for the score of his film inside Troublemaker studios. He seems cool and really likeable. Course, I'm not sure about his kids' names, but whatever.

I was just looking at Rodriguez's imdb page and he apparently appeared on a VH1 show called VH1: All Access
- Awesomely Wacky Celebrity Baby Names
so he's definitely up front about it.

To be fair, Alec never said he would leave the country. Even Bill O'Reilly backed him up on that falsehood, but will anyone even notice if Stephen leaves?

Wouldn't Stephen Baldwin leaving the country help Obama?? The average IQ in the US would immediately shoot up 2 or 3 points!

It looks like start of a great educational reform. Deport all the stupid people. Liz will have fewer people to write about as most make a living in Hollywood, but it's a sound plan.

How ugly has the Madonna-Ritchie divorce gotten?

Has it gotten as ugly as some of Madonna's stage costumes?

Sasquatch, thanks for the reminder to see Hail Mary, Halle Berry!

And please extend a big shout-out to your fellow cryptids: it's the 41st anniversary of the (in)famous Patterson-Gimlin film of that PacNW Bigfoot.

I take it that Mr. Blackwell's first name was Mister, since his birth name was Richard Sylvan Selzer.

Thanks for the wishes, Byoolin. We'll try to include the the Patterson-Gimlin film as a short in this November's D.B. Cooper Film Fest, to be shown at a local cryptid cave. The snacks will be Jack Links Jerky.

Katherine Heigl doesn't want to get pregnant because that would mean that she would have to stop smoking.

Ok, so I chomped into the Duchovney story and spat out this little gem:

"But now 48-year-old Duchovny's blonde coach Edit Pakay, 28..."

Is her name really "Edit," did someone forget to buy an "h," or should we be mourning the cutbacks on copyEDITors?

MoCo, she's Hungarian, so I assume that's the correct (non-Anglicized) spelling.

Madonna and Guy both have lots of money, but neither has a Wedding Ring Coffin. We want to send a Wedding Ring Coffin to the most deserving spouse. Help us decide. Cast your vote at:

Let's help Madonna and Guy put this marriage in it's proper final resting place.

Madonna currently likes Latinos, her ex, Sean, likes Latinos too (Chavez).
Hey fans, thinking beautiful people like Latinos!

Its time to adore a Latino, just Madonna and Sean!
