Shanna Moakler, Travis Barker‘s ex wife, was approached by TMZ in a parking garage where the topic turned to breast feeding. How did that happen? Because a TMZ camera guy followed her around telling her he had something from “insafacts” for her. He took out his phone and said, “This is a doozy!” and read her a piece of trivia from his phone. The “fact” was something about how children who are breastfed grow up to be thinner adults than those who were not.
Okay TMZ, what the hell. That is the lamest thing I have ever heard. You follow D-list celebs around so you can read them interesting facts from your phone and ask them what they think?? I mean, I get it, there’s nothing Ms. Moakler has going on and I’m guessing she called you to be there, but still. So she responded (and not in a haughty way),
I’ve never heard that…I didn’t breastfeed. I’m selfish.
She then gave a little laugh and the camera guy pressed, “Super selfish. You weren’t lactating?” Oh God, what? Dude. Stop. Just let her answer your stupid question. So she goes on and completes her thought with,
I just look at my breasts as like, sexual…I think it’s incestual and gross. I don’t like it. But I totally support it and think its awesome!
As she leaves the TMZ guy shouts, “HAVE YOU EVER TASTED YOUR OWN BREAST MILK?”
Thanks, TMZ! You guys really know how to give us what we want from celebs.
Shanna Moakler is funny. This weekend her arch nemesis, anti-gay marriage advocate and former Miss USA contestant, Carrie Prejean got married. Not wanting to stiff Carrie on her big day, Shanna ordered her a Waterford Crystal picture frame that she’d registered for… and put one of her “No on H8″ campaign photos in it. I can only imagine Carrie’s face when she opened the expensive but totally backhanded gift from her frenemy.
I think this is kind of the perfect prank. Plenty mean, but at the end of the day, both Carrie and Shanna know that photo won’t last more than a second in that expensive frame. It’s certainly a step up from pushing people down flights of stairs.
Just what Hollywood needs, another overpriced, C-list laden, paparazzi covered bar!
The opening night of new club Voyeur went down on Thursday and tons of celebs came out (read: got free bottle service) to be there for all the madness. Samantha Ronson, Gerard Butler, Shane West and Shanna Moakler were snapped headed in and out of the club by the paparazzi, who must have been taking a break from standing in front of Teddy’s or Guys and Dolls or wherever the hell the kids are going these days. Bardot. Is that one of them? H-Wood? Is that still open? Hyde? Les Deux? Opera? Anyone wanna play a game of LA-club based Scategories?
Instead of telling you, since it’s late here and I’ve already written a full ten pieces, I’m going to let the pictures tell the story …
Needless to say, Travis Barker is way more focused on publicly insulting a woman he once loved enough to create humans with, and so not focused on what is best for his children. What would be best is shutting the fuck up and calling his lawyer if he thinks his kids are in danger. Because saying “My babies mom is a pile of shit” has nothing to do with the threat of child molestation. It’s just an insult for the sake of insult.
Ugh, I guess I did have something to say about it after all. And for the record, I will definitely still be following this short-sighted twit. Oh, and he JUST deleted the “pile of shit” tweet. Success!
His Direct Message to Me
His Direct Message to Me
I wanted to share Travis Barker’s latest Tweet with you. Sadly, it’s proof that not even a near-death experience can provide illumination for everyone. You know, maybe Shanna Moakler — that’s who he’s referring to — is a pile of shit. I don’t know — I don’t know her. It doesn’t even matter. She’s the mother of his children and putting these thoughts in print does no service to their children.
Sometimes a fuckwit is just always going to be a fuckwit. Not even a narrow escape from death was enough to give Travis Barker perspective.
I guess these two are officially toast now, but between this incident and Shanna having enough balls to publicly blast Katie Holmes’ dancing skills, I’m going Team Shanna all the way!
Just yesterday Shanna Moakler smiled and shook hands with Miss California Carrie Prejean at a press conference in which Donald Trump announced that Prejean would retain her crown. Maybe she was just being a professional but it would have been much more exciting if she had stormed out. Or started attacking Donald Trump’s Oompa Loompa skin with a loofah. Decorum sucks.
Anyway, Moakler’s affection toward Prejean, like every boob that comes out of California, was a fake display.
However, in a move that restores my faith, today Moakler resigned from her director post for the Miss California USA pageant. The statement released reads as follows:
Since the press conference yesterday, I had a chance to think about what has taken place, and I feel that at this time it is in my best interest to resign from the Miss California USA organization.
I cannot with a clear conscious move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth. I want to be a role model for young women with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams.
I give her credit for standing up for what she believes in. With this brave move she also has secured the everlasting love of the gays. She’s the new Liza. Or Cher. Or Beet.
FINALLY Shanna Moakler is doing something I can get behind. The former Miss USA — who’s currently the executive director of the Miss California USA pageant — teamed up with Miss USA 2006 first runner-up Tamiko Nash and last year’s titleholder Raquel Beezley did a photo shoot last night for Adam Bouska and NOH8, a photo campaign to support efforts to overturn Proposition 8.
“We never expected to have so many beauty queens participate. The whole campaign, obviously, is not a direct message to Miss California, but now she happened to have put herself in the line of fire,” Bouska says. “If Carrie is going to go out there with her message, then we have to go out there and make sure the voices of these girls are heard. And that they are what Miss USA should stand for, too.”
For those of you who were wondering, the California Supreme Court will rule on the challenge to Prop 8 no later than June 3. You can click here to register to be notified as soon as they have a decision. Stay tuned!
