34The Newest Spears Spawn Born this Morning

The entire Spears clan was gathered in a hospital room in Mississippi this morning, where Jamie-Lynn Spears delivered a baby girl via C-section at 8:30 am.

The delivery appeared to go smoothly, and JLS is resting in a recovery room now.

Congratulations, Jamie-Lynn and Casey!

29Robert Downey Jr.: Off the Wagon?

The Crazy Days and Nights blog has an interesting (and obvious) blind item today:

To me, this one was a little heartbreaking to hear. This once troubled actor who has peaked and valleyed between A and C list his entire career depending on his drug use was thought to be clean and enjoying some big success once again. However, it is just that success that may have caused his most recent slip. Oh, he slipped alright. Twice is what I hear. Separate nights. The question is going to be whether it was truly just a slip or if this is going to be another long, twisted spiral downward.

Commenters the world around seem to agree that this is none other than Robert Downey, Jr.

Oh, Robert! Say it ain’t so!

28Perhaps Perez Hilton Should Go to Business School

Perez launched a new service on Wednesday: Gossip on the Go, where you can pay $5/month to use your cell phone minutes to hear Perez call and tell you about news that he’s going to report on his blog like 20 minutes later.

There are a few kinks in this business plan, and even the loyal readers of his site managed to figure them out.

Namely: no one’s going to pay shit for something they can get for free.

On the other hand, it probably costs him very little to do, so if anyone’s stupid enough to sign up, it’s all profit. But I think the (predictable!) backlash he’s getting from it cancels out any pecuniary gain. After his Hot Topic fiasco, he should have waited a little while before launching another dubious business enterprise.

14The Gays: They’re Just Like Us!

They get divorced!

Comedian Matt Lucas and his husband — the couple were married in Britain a year and a half ago — have announced that they’re now divorcing, making this the first gay celebrity divorce in the history of gossip!


We don’t get many firsts around here these days.

Also, this gives me hope that I could one day be reporting on the Lindsay Lohan/Samantha Ronson divorce. Oh please please please let it happen!

So what’s on it?

Premium, prohibitively priced, Japanese-style Wagyu, flame-grilled, garnished with Italian truffles, Spanish cured ham, aged balsamic vinegar, Champagne onions and popped onto a saffron- and truffle-dusted bun.

Oh, Burger King, I understand if you can’t give me your special credit card, but at least donate one of these to meeee!
