The irrationality of the “pro-choice” folks always amuses me - especially vapid celebrities like Pamela Anderson. To them, since they can’t “see” unborn babies, the babies are only “fetuses.” They lack the ability to visualize the living, formed baby just a few inches beneath the surface.
Thanks for Darleen for this cartoon that perfectly depicts what an idiot Pamela Anderson is.
Christina Applegate has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Just this past month, my family went through a frightening time as my daughter had biopsies and other tests which finally ruled out breast cancer. We were lucky. However, from that experience, I understand a little about what Christina Applegate and her family are going through, and my heart goes out to them.
“The cancer is not life threatening. She is following the recommended treatment of her doctors and will have a full recovery.”
The 36-year-old is best known for her role as Kelly Bundy in the long-running US sitcom Married with Children.
Shayne Lamas and Matt Grant’s engagement ended in record time, but Shayne has no problem with keeping the ring.
Shayne Lamas and Matt Grant
No one expected the relationship to last. She was an obvious attention-seeker who wanted to win the Bachelor’s heart in order to further her career. It worked. No one had heard of her before the show. Now she’s in all the tabloids.
In an interview, Shayne Lamas announced that she “Has prepared a permanent home for the 2.85 carat Tacori platinum-and-diamond eternity ring.”
I have it and I am going to keep it forever for the rest of my life,” Lamas told PEOPLE. It’s safe and clean and in a gladd box like a glass slipper.”
Lamas says that Grant is fine with the arrangement and even wants to come over to her place to see the ring. Even though Shayne Lamas insists that she was never unfaithful, there are photos circulating of her with at least one other man while she was still engaged to Grant.
It appears to me that Lamas is relishing all the attention she has received from the show, the engagement, and now the breakup. I wonder what she will do next to feed her need for the spotlight.
The rumor is that Katherine Heigl’s character, Izzy Stevens, will be killed off of “Grey’s Anatomy.” See photos and video here.
The rumor started when Heigl declined an award nomination because she felt that her character ws given a lousy storyline. I agree. Her storyline this past year had her giving CPR to a deer that had been hit by a vehicle. Then they have her as the beautiful doctor chasing after such a wimpy and insipid character as T.R. Knight’s George O’Malley.
I have to admit I’m not a Katherine Heigl Fan. Really good actors make you believe their characters. You don’t see the actor in a show because you’re seeing the character instead. By that measure, there are three actors in “Grey’s Anatomy” that just don’t make it - Katherine Heigl, T.R. Knight and Kate Walsh. They are obviously acting on the show - and not doing a very good job of it.
The promos for her movie, “Knocked UP,” looked interesting, and so once it was out on DVD, I started watching it. After making myself keep watching it for 20 minutes, I finally gave up. She is simply not believable as an actress. In the movie she was Katherine Heigl acting like a woman who got pregnant after a one night stand. She simply wasn’t the character.
So will Katherine Heigl leave the show? I don’t care. Her departure sure couldn’t hurt the show, and if they got a really good actor with a good storyline to replace her, then that could only improve the show.
Kirk Cameron is in the news again as his book, Still Growing, gains in popularity. See photos and a video of Kirk on “The View” here.
Kirk Cameron - Then
Kirk Cameron - Now
Kirk Cameron explains that he undertook “Still Growing” because,with all the 80’s nostalgia, it was a good time to tell his story. The book chronicles his journey from “Growing Pains” to his current work as a strong Christian.
Controversy isn’t something he avoided either. There are “Growing Pains” fan who believe that his refusal to cooperate with the producers’ wishes to make Mike Seaver’s (of the “Growing Pains” sitcom) life more exciting by having some sexual adventures and other “edgier” struggles, led to the downfall of the show. Cameron, who was a Christian the last few seasons of the show, took a stand against storylines that conflicted with his beliefs. While he recognizes that he was “overly fervent” then, he doesn’t believe that he was misguided.
And, of course, if he had not wanted to do the scenes because of conflict with any religion other than Christianity, he would likely have been lauded for being so principled.
According to an unnamed “famous screenwriter” he quotes in the book, he “sure picked the one unacceptable religion” for an actor.
Kirk explains it this way:
“I was trying to not break the level of trust we’d developed with families,” he said. . . .
“It would have been far easier to go with the flow,” he writes. “I would have made a lot more money . . . if I had played the game. It’s not easy to stand up for what you believe. I learned that from a very young age.”
And, in the end, each person’s self-respect and self-honesty is what counts.
“If you don’t have personal convictions you will be swept up by the tidal wave of culture, which doesn’t care about you in the end.”
Angelina Jolie gave birth by Cesarean section to her twins Saturday night: A girl named Vivienne Marcheline and a boy names Knox Leon. Photos and video here.
Knox Leon entered the world at 5.03 pounds, and Vivienne Marcheline weighed five pounds. They were born around 8:00 p.m. Saturday night. Brad Pitt was there for the births at the seaside Lenval hospital in Nice in southern France.
The obstetrician, Dr. Michel Sussmann said everyone is doing well.
“The mother, the babies, the father are doing marvelously well.”
He said the Cesarian was moved forward from its originally planned date “for medical reasons” so that the babies could be born “in the best conditions.” Sussman did not give details.
He said Jolie is expected to stay in the hospital for a few more days. The doctor said he believed the baby girl’s middle name was chosen in honor of Jolie’s mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand, who died in Jan. 2007 after a 7-year battle with cancer.
Nicole Kidman has said that she is enjoying married life with KEITH URBAN - because their relationship is more ‘gentle’ than her previous marriage to TOM CRUISE. See photos and video here.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
The 41-year-old actress and Keith Urban were married in 2006. She was married to Tom Cruise for ten years. She tells that her relationship with Keith Urban is very different from her relationship to Tom Cruise.
She says, “We just gently, gently sort of fell into each other. We were just two lonely people who went, ‘Ah, there you are.’”
Nicole and Keith are expecting their first child sometime this summer. The baby will be Nicole’s first biological child, although she has other children she adopted when she was married to Tom Cruise. She says that she was so overwhelmed with joy the first time she saw the baby’s image on the ultrasound machine that she started crying . She just couldn’t hold back the tears. I know how she feels.
Last night Dr. Phil McGraw and Robin attended a George Michael concern in Los Angeles, and George Michael “served up Dr. Phil a big can of whoop ass!” Photos and video here.
During the concert, George pointed out Dr. Phil and Robin sitting near the front of the arena. When they were put on the monitor, the crowd booed. Then George said that it looked like Robin was having a great time but that Dr. Phil looked bored. The elicited another round of boos. Dr. Phil and Robin reported took off soon afterwards.
George Michael gave Dr. Phil McGraw a little tough love at his concert Wednesday night at the L.A. Forum.
“I probably shouldn’t say this, but it’s very me. Dr. Phil is here, and in the sea of faces he has this miserable look - he’s been doing it for the last hour,” the British singer said from the stage at McGraw, who was in the audience. “Maybe you need to see someone about that.”
A source at the show described the jibe from Michael as “very playful.”
A friend of Paul Newman’s has confirmed that he has cancer. That makes me sad. Paul Newman has always been one of my favorite actors. “Cool Hand Luke,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” are just two of the wonderful movies that he made.
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â Paul Newman, the legendary actor and philanthropist, is battling cancer, his longtime neighbor and business partner said Wednesday. Newman, 83, has recently appeared gaunt in photos, and dropped plans to direct a play in his Connecticut hometown.
Writer A.E. Hotchner, who partnered with Newman to start Newman’s Own salad dressing company in the 1980s, said the actor told him about the disease about 18 months ago. He did not specify what kind of cancer, but said Newman is in active treatment.
“I know that it’s a form of cancer,” Hotchner told The Associated Press. “It’s a form of cancer and he’s dealing with it.”
Newman issued a statement late Tuesday that he’s “doing nicely” but didn’t specifically address questions about cancer. A call was placed to his spokesman Wednesday seeking comment.
Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward have always presented such a wonderful example of a good, solid marriage. They seem to genuinely love and respect each other, and they’ve been together forever. Good luck, Paul. You and Joanne are in my prayers.
