Blake Lively gave birth and we’re only just finding out about it

blake lively ryan reynolds

Goop Jr., otherwise known as Blake Lively, only announced that she was pregnant with her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds back in October. For this reason, it probably comes as a slight shock that she’s already given birth – in fact, she did so just before the New Year, and we’re only just finding out about it.

It was Page Six that got the “exclusive” details, which just amounted to the fact that Blake gave birth at home in Bedford, NY and that the baby was a bit early, but everyone is healthy and just fine. We don’t know if it’s a boy or girl, what the child’s name is or anything else. I mean, we don’t particularly care, but we wouldn’t know even if we wanted to.

In all seriousness, congrats to them and glad everything’s okay.

Tara Reid posts naked selfie because… who knows why?

tara reid

I guess you can’t ride the wave (so to speak) of Sharknado – and your spinoff perfume inspired by the movie – forever, right? I mean, the need for renewed attention has to be the reason Tara Reid decided to post a naked selfie on Instagram this weekend.

The above photo was posted later, and was captioned, quite aptly, with, “I’m a mermaid.” That you are, Tara.

The whole naked thing is under the cut for those of you who might be at work or just want to save your eyes.

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt got divorced – get over it, already!

jennifer aniston brad pitt

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were the world’s hottest couple during the late ’90s/early ’00s. Literally, we thought it could get no hotter (until, of course, he hooked up with Angelina Jolie). The whole situation was messed up – Brad very likely cheated on Jen with Angelina while filming a movie with her, though their relationship was already on the rocks. Jen was seen as the angel in this situation while Angelina was a homewrecking whore, yada yada. It’s all in the distant past now and everyone has moved on, of course, but some people feel like Jen must still be harboring some serious pain about the whole thing. WRONG!

Here’s how she explained it in an interview with Lee Cowan for CBS Sunday News:

“The fact that it still follows you around — I mean, I’m divorced. It’s gotta be painful. I mean, I don’t like it when people bring it up. But people still do, right?”

“I don’t find it painful, though,” Aniston said. “I think it’s a narrative that follows you because it’s an interesting headline. It’s more of a media-driven topic.”

“You’ve moved on, clearly.”

“Well, everybody has!” she laughed.

“You guys still talk? You friends?”

“We’ve exchanged good wishes and all that sort of stuff to each other, but not a constant thing. I mean, do you talk to your ex-wife?”

“No. … When I have do, I do.”

“There ya’ go!”

She’s currently engaged to actor Justin Theroux — happy and blissful, she says, despite the spotlight.

“But can you and Justin turn off all that noise and static?” Cowan asked.

“Oh, we do. We absolutely do. We know what our truth is. And that’s all just static.”

I truly do feel bad for Jennifer Aniston. I don’t think another actress has EVER been plagued by the amount of bullshit questioning she has ever since being with Brad. What happened to your marriage? Are you upset? Do you hate Angelina? Will you get married again? When will you have babies? Do you not want babies because you care about your career more? What about the babies?! And when are you getting married?! Like, I would seriously punch someone.

I’ve always found Jennifer Aniston really enjoyable and still do – especially since I’ve been rewatching Friends lately and she’s just so damn charming.

Here’s the full video of her interview, if you’re interested:

Hayden Panettiere is enjoying motherhood

hayden panettiere

Hayden Panettiere gave birth to her first child last month, and as she herself admitted, her body will never be the same after having an 8 pound, 2 foot long monster rip its way through her nether regions. She’s really enjoying being a mom, though, and has shared a new picture of her happy family on Instagram over the holidays.

Damn, that baby looks long as hell. Also, it still has the generic baby face and hasn’t come into its own yet, which always cracks me up. I love that babies look like little old people.

Anyhoo, not much to report here, just celebrities raising their kids. THEY’RE JUST LIKE US!

Sarah Palin responds to PETA: ‘At least Trig didn’t eat the dog’

sarah palin dog

Oh, Sarah Palin. So dumb, yet so argumentative. After receiving loads of heat for posting photos of her 6-year-old son Trig standing on the family dog and using it as a step stool, she decided to fire back at the critics – PETA in particular – to say that everyone needs to cool their jets about this. I mean, after all, at least Trig didn’t eat the dog!

Here’s her letter (yes, this is serious):

Dear PETA,

Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog.

Hey, by the way, remember your “Woman of the Year”, Ellen DeGeneres? Did you get all wee-wee’d up when she posted this sweet picture? http://conservatives4palin.com/…/peta-woman-year-posts-phot… Hypocritical, much?

Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?

Aren’t you the double-standard radicals always opposing Alaska’s Iditarod – the Last Great Race honoring dogs who are born to run in wide open spaces, while some of your pets “thrive” in a concrete jungle where they’re allowed outdoors to breathe and pee maybe once a day? (http://iditarod.com/ http://www.irondog.org/)

Aren’t you the same herd that opposes our commercial fishing jobs, claiming I encourage slaying and consuming wild, organic healthy protein sources called “fish”? (I do.)

Aren’t you the same anti-beef screamers blogging hate from your comfy leather office chairs, wrapped in your fashionable leather belts above your kickin’ new leather pumps you bought because your celebrity idols (who sport fur and crocodile purses) grinned in a tabloid wearing the exact same Louboutins exiting sleek cowhide covered limo seats on their way to some liberal fundraiser shindig at some sushi bar that features poor dead smelly roe (that I used to strip from our Bristol Bay-caught fish, and in a Dillingham cannery I packed those castoff fish eggs for you while laughing with co-workers about the suckers paying absurdly high prices to party with the throw away parts of our wild seafood)? I believe you call those discarded funky eggs “caviar”.

Yeah, you’re real credible on this, PETA. A shame, because I’ll bet we agree on what I hope is the true meaning of your mission – respecting God’s creation and critters.

Our pets, including Trig’s best buddy Jill Hadassah, are loved, spoiled and cared for more than some people care for their fellow man whose politics may not mesh with nonsensical liberally failed ways or don’t fit your flighty standards.

Jill is a precious part of our world. So is Trig.

- Sarah Palin

LOL, wait a minute – when did Obama say he ate and/or enjoyed “dead dog meat”? I’m seriously laughing at that. Also, what grown ass woman says “all wee-wee’d up” in a serious way (or at all)? And how is it possible that one person can be so very misguided in every sense of the word? PETA sucks hard – nearly as hard as Sarah Palin, so we’re on the same page there – but if you’re going to come for them, at least know what the hell you’re talking about.

1. That is not Ellen’s child, and Ellen DeGeneres did not personally share that photograph. It was posted on her social media probably by some intern who runs it – though some have said it is her goddaughter. Not sure if that’s true.  Sarah Palin posted a photo that SHE took of HER child. Not really comparable.

2. PETA offices have leather chairs and they idolize leather and fur wearing celebrities? Uh, I thought they actually went for them/threw paint at them/etc? So…

3. Sarah Palin hunts FROM HELICOPTERS for sport. Not to eat, not to help cull overbred populations or anything of the sort. For fun. From a helicopter.

4. Why is the dog’s middle name Hadassah?

Kid Rock has deep thoughts on guns, abortion, “rap rock” and more

kid rock

It’s been nearly four years since this site has reported on Kid Rock, and for good reason – he’s a fucking idiot. What he’s been doing since our last story is anyone’s guess – probably terrorizing “real America” in myriad ways, no doubt. For some reason, The Guardian thought it’d be a great idea to let him terrorize us even more by letting him write his own column about… nothing and everything. Here are some highlights in which Kid talks about being a redneck, his right to call shit “gay” when he wants, and more:

I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.

I’m not just wealthy, I’m loaded. I can say that because I’m not embarrassed – I’ve made a fuck-ton of money, but I’ve never made a dishonest dollar. I try to do right by the people around me.

I’m 43 and about to become a grandfather, but it keeps my redneck street cred up. I could be a great-great-great-grandfather by the time I’m 80. I am excited, but also nervous for my son. He was dropped on my doorstep at six months when I had no money and was trying to be a rock star. I didn’t have a clue.

My success with women picked up around the 14 millionth record I sold. I know what it was about – I don’t exactly look like Brad Pitt. I learned to be careful. I didn’t want 10 kids around. But there have been a lot of women. I could have set a better example for my son. When he was a teenager I’d bring home girls that he had more in common with than I did.

I don’t smoke much weed, it makes me dumb. But they should legalise and tax everything: pot, cocaine, heroin. Has it not been proven that people will always find a way to get what they want?

I’m always buying more guns. I have everything from a Civil War cannon to an MP5 machine gun and old police guns. If someone invades your house, yeah, you can shoot them. I don’t think crazy people should have guns.

Rap-rock was what people wanted at the time, and they still love those songs at shows. But it turned into a lot of bullshit and it turned out to be pretty gay… If someone says you can’t say “gay” like that you tell them to go fuck themselves. You’re not going to get anything politically correct out of me.

I just… I’m sort of dumbfounded, but not really – I mean, it is Kid Rock we’re talking about here, not the next Nobel Prize winner. His views on things are so… simplistic, so ignorant. Like, I get that he’s a redneck and he’s very proud of keeping that culture alive, but… wow.

Also, how on God’s green earth is Kid Rock so loaded? I mean, maybe in his heyday, sure, but NOW? Seriously?

Kristen Stewart has a special message for you

kristen stewart alicia

If there’s one thing Kristen Stewart wants you to do when you see her at the airport, it’s to get the fuck out of her face. That’s exactly what she told a slew of photographers, one of whom wanted her to autograph a picture of herself with ex-bf Robert Pattinson from Twilight. Yikes. It didn’t go down too well, as you can imagine:

Also, news alert: everyone and their brother has been reporting that Alicia is possibly KStew’s girlfriend, but apparently it’s her cousin?? I’m not sure where this came from and whether it’s true, but colour me disappointed. I’m still holding out for the girlfriend, though!

Bottom line, don’t mess with KStew.
