4It’s Baby Season!

Congrats to Cate Blanchett, who gave birth to her third son with husband Andrew Upton on Sunday. Little Ignatius Martin was born in a Sydney hospital. Mother and baby are doing well.

I hope the kids get their mom’s hair, that’s for sure.

5Britney Spears and the No Good Very Bad Day

Britney Spears in Car Crash, Pictures, PHotos

Here’s Britney pouting in her car after she caused what the photo agency is calling a “three-car pileup.” This is probably a little exaggerated, as she actually just rear-ended the car in front of her in heavy traffic, and that car hit the car in front of it, and all of them were perfectly capable of driving to a nearby gas station and chatting with police. No one was injured.

Britney was out for a spin with her bodyguard, who took over the driving duties after the accident.

Here’s Ricky Schroder and his daughter leaving a pet store in Malibu after playing with the puppies.

Seriously, Ricky, I had to learn this the hard way. Don’t make your daughter go through it, too!!!!!!

Adopt from rescues and shelters, people!!!!!

Oh, and if you didn’t read the Ricky Schroder story I posted a couple weeks ago, you must.

4All Dolled Up


It’s rare that we see Rosie O’Donnell wearing makeup for an off-camera appearance, but she got herself all done up for Comedy Central’s autism fundraiser on Sunday night in NYC.

She’s still not a hottie or anything, but it’s a huge improvement.

34True Love!


Look, I know a lot of you feel that I should leave the civilians out of this blog, and normally I do, but Cynthia Nixon’s girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, is so fundamentally unattractive that I just can’t stop myself from pointing it out every time I see her. I’m sure she is a wonderful, beautiful person, but do you know what this picture reminds me of?

Remember that scene from The Wedding Singer where there’s that fat boy at the Bar Mitzvah? And no one will dance with him and he’s sad? And then Adam Sandler grabs the mic and tells hottie Drew Barrymore to pick the boy she’d most like to dance with? And they’re all begging her to pick them, but she picks the fat boy and dances with him and he’s all happy? Yeah. That’s what comes to mind here.

But in some ways I have to give Cynthia props for obviously looking beyond traditional, shallow values. This is obviously the real thing, and I guess I’m happy for them. I’m sure Christine is a really wonderful person, and I can’t really sit here and talk shit, as my insistence on finding a man who is funny, smart, interesting, caring, honest, loving and also ridiculously hot has resulted in me being single forever. I guess at some point I might have to let go of the “honest” criterion.
