Oops, She Screwed Up Again


Exclusively from Star Magazine:

On April 7, when Britney Spears and Kevin Federline realized that their baby, Sean Preston, had been sleeping more than usual, panic bells went off. Just six days earlier, the 7-month-old had taken a major fall from his high chair, a tumble that had his parents worried that he might have been critically injured.

They had every right to fret. After rushing Sean to a nearby hospital, they discovered he had a minor skull fracture (sometimes called a "scalp fracture" in babies), and a blood clot. And the doctors weren't the only ones to take notice! The next day, the Department of Children and Family Services began looking into the incident.

The Spears-Federline clan escaped disaster, but not their obligation to explain themselves to the authorities. On April 8, L.A. sheriff's deputies arrived at Britney's Malibu home to investigate a child-abuse claim against Britney and Kevin in relation to the head injury. Such an investigation isn't unusual. According to California law, whenever a baby is brought into the hospital with a serious injury, the Department of Children and Family Services is alerted.


Jesus. Can I just say that although I'm not a parent, I know better than this moron? Let me rant for a minute. You can yell at me if you want. I like reading comments. I'm a part-time nanny for four young children, and today one of them fell and cut her forehead. It was a little cut, and I put Neosporin on it with a band-aid and held ice on it for ten minutes, then gave her Children's Advil. OK, so maybe I'm a little overprotective, but GEEZE! To let your kid fall from a high chair, first of all, is so irresponsible. They have straps that are SUPPOSED TO BE USED. Anyone who doesn't strap their child in and either push them to the table or snap in the plastic tray that is on some chairs right away so they have something in front of them to block them from falling in addition to the straps is negligent. Sean Preston is an INFANT. Either Britney dropped him or she left him in the chair unsupervised. Either way, bad parenting. And to not notice anything strange for SIX DAYS?!!?? My God. I really hope this kid survives to see his first birthday.

D12 Rapper Shot and Killed


Rap artist Proof (real name Deshaun Holton) of popular recording group D12 was shot and killed at the CCC bar on Eight Mile Road in Detroit early yesterday morning. The group D12 is most well known for their hit "Purple Pills" as well as for often recording with fellow Detroit native Eminem. In fact, Proof was the best man at his January re-marriage to estranged wife Kim. Eight Mile Road was the inspiration for the title of Em's biographical movie, "8 Mile," and Proof has come up from the bottom with him, which makes this news all the more tragic. The bar in which the incident occured is the red building in the picture behind the man leaving the stuffed animal.

Oh, No


Mariah Carey warned the general public yesterday that she is probably going to star in a Broadway musical that she is also going to help create. She told MTV: "I don't want to mention anything definitive until things are signed, but there's a very big company that just signed on to develop the project with me," That's not the worst of it. As someone who has seen "Glitter", I will say that this quote from Mariah is especially disturbing: "It's probably going to be a movie first. I don't want to say a television movie, because it's not like a cheesy network movie, but then it's going to be made for the Broadway production." Uh, in addition to new songs, the musical is also going to include, according to Carey, songs from her 1994 Christmas album.

OK, so it's not going to be cheesy at all, then. Right. I can't wait to see the costumes.

Pooh Gets His Due



Winnie the Pooh got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the El Capitan Theater yesterday. I dig his sexy pose.

I Don't Usually Promote Stuff, But...

There's a new television show on VH1 called Celebrity Eye Candy that's basically a TV version of any celebrity gossip blog you'd read on the internet. I caught an episode last night and was pretty impressed. They have Celebrity Candids of the week - ones I haven't seen anywhere else - and a bunch of snarky semi-celebrities making snarky comments about the celeb gossip of the week. It's different from Best Week Ever because it doesn't cover any of that boring actual news stuff. It's on Fridays at 11:30 EDT but they play it all the time during the week...check out the website here.

Just to prove that I don't get paid by VH1 or anything, So NoTORIous sucks.

It's a Boy for Gwyn and Chris!

Gwyneth Paltrow gave birth to her second child with husband Chris Martin (of British rock group Coldplay) during the weekend in New York City. Contrary to rumors, she did not name him Mortimer, choosing the name Moses instead after a song Martin wrote for her that appeared on Coldplay's "Live 2003" album. Her publicist has not released any more details about the new addition to the family yet. Actress Blythe Danner, Paltrow's mother, commented during her daughter's pregnancy, "We love unusual names in the family."

That's for sure. Moses Martin. I can't decide if that's better or worse than Morty Martin. What do you think?

Teri Hatcher is a Diva


The Internet Movie Database reports:

Teri Hatcher is expected to become the highest-paid television actress After demanding a cut from numerous lucrative products linked to hit show Desperate Housewives. Hatcher's earnings are set to rocket to at least $6 million after she won a deal to promote the spin-offs, including a computer game and an online fashion store. A source tells British newspaper The Mail on Sunday, "She has been saying that, unlike the stars of Friends, who ended up making a million an episode, she is not getting enough money. "(Series producer) Disney is desperate to keep her happy so has come up with a deal that gives her a cut of profits from the video game, board game and a planned online clothing store. "There are also plans for a cookbook, music DVD and a fragrance. This is going to be a huge, lucrative franchise and Teri has made sure she's getting a cut of every deal. "She will earn at least $6 million from spin-offs alone this year.

Em's Grandma Speaks!


Eminem's grandmother, Betty Kresin, has spoken out on the subject of her grandson's ongoing split from wife Kim. She says she is happy that the couple has broken up, claiming Kim tore the family apart. She also says her only regret about the dissolution of the marriage is that the couple did not sign a prenuptiual agreement before remarrying on January 14.

Flockhart Admits Anorexia


Although her publicist denies it, The Mirror UK is saying that Calista Flockhart admitted in a recent interview that she had an eating disorder while she filmed popular FOX television show Ally McBeal. She revealed that hectic, long work schedules and the stress of being on the show made her stop eating, saying that her lowest weight was probably under 99 pounds. The Mirror quotes Flockhart as saying, "At the time of all that, I was seriously stressed. I was working 15 hour days on the set and then I was dealing with the end of the show, which was basically my life." The show ended in 2002, right around when Flockhart's weight was being most heavily scrutinized. She continues, "I started under-eating, over-exercising, pushing myself too hard and brutalizing my immune system. I guess I just didn't find time to eat...I am much more healthy these days." This comes on the heels of McBeal costar Portia DiRossi's recent confession that working on the show caused her issues with eating as well.

Oh, Please. She Was in Layer Cake and Alfie


The Internet Movie Database reports:
British actress Sienna Miller horrified Hollywood after she was photographed behaving in a "loud, childish" fashion at Vanity Fair's post-Oscar bash last month. The images, which will be published in the magazine's May issue, show Miller cavorting drunkenly with bit-part actress Tara Summers, having her foot nibbled by her pal and hitching up her dress while waving her bare legs in the air. Far from being impressed by her antics, the guests, mainly studio executives and producers, collectively cringed at Miller's embarrassing faux-pas - planting a question mark over her fledgling Hollywood career. A leading Hollywood producer tells British newspaper the Mail on Sunday, "It's one thing to be gossiped about, but it's quite another to have pictures of yourself in that kind of clinch plastered all over a magazine. Hollywood is notoriously straight-laced when it comes to the behavior of a young star. This is an industry town. Actresses who expect to be taken seriously simply don't get drunk and behave like this in public." An eyewitness branded her "loud and childish", adding, "Everyone was talking about how Sienna was totally over-the-top. These pictures have seriously damaged her reputation." However, Miller's spokeswoman denies any raucous behavior, insisting, "They have just wrapped a film together and they were just sitting next to each other at a party. Nothing more than that. "We've had no complaints."


Throwing a Cell Phone = Love Tap!


Naomi Campbell is speaking out against her recent charges of assault. She says, "You can't stop people from thinking what they want to think and there is always two sides to every story. I'm somebody who is very loyal. I will never take from anybody or want anything of anybody else's. I just want to live my life honestly and one day at a time and be honest and giving and loving to the people that are giving and loving." OK, but if someone takes something from her, like she accused her maid Ana Scolavino of doing, she turns into a violent, phone-chucking beeyotch. And, Naomi, it's "there are always two sides to every story," not "there is. Please don't hit me with your cell phone.

Tom Cruise Speaks Out on Abusive Childhood


From People Magazine:

Tom Reveals Abusive Childhood
With fiancée Katie Holmes close to giving birth, Tom Cruise has admitted his own father was no role model.

Speaking to Parade magazine, Cruise -- who has two children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman -- said of his father, Thomas Cruise Mapother III, "He was a bully and a coward -- the person where, if something goes wrong, they kick you. It was a great lesson in my life, how he'd lull you in, make you feel safe and then, bang!"

Cruise, 43, says, "For me it was like, 'There's something wrong with this guy. Don't trust him. Be careful around him.' There's that anxiety."

When Cruise was 12, his mother left his father, taking Cruise and his sister Lee Anne with her. The actor tried for a reconciliation 10 years later, when his father "was in the hospital dying of cancer, and he would only meet me on the basis that I didn't ask him anything about the past."

Cruise sums up the experience as a life lesson. "When I saw him in pain, I thought, 'What a lonely life.' He was in his late 40s. It was sad."

Crackheads are No Longer Unacceptable to Society

Calvin Klein confirmed today that Kate Moss is going to star in a new fall ad campaign for the company that will include billboards and magazines. Her new contract is reportedly worth $900,000. The ads will also feature British male model Jamie Dornan and will be shot in New York this week. Campaign Creative Director, Fabien Baron stated, "Kate and the Calvin Klein brand have a long history together and it felt natural to reunite them for this new Jeans campaign, which will inevitably reignite that spark and highlight the sexy, cool essence of both Kate and Calvin Klein."

You've got to ask yourself, though, how sexy are you, really, if Pete Doherty is your boyfriend?
