TomKat’s divorce has my gossip juices following again. I’ve got stars in my eyes. I’m thinking about doing some regular Hollywood blog posts at housegoeshome. All the juicy bits, without having to wade around in the murk. What do you reckon? Workshop it with me. I can’t decide whether to just have the occasional spray, like I did with TomKat, or whether to do daily round ups of the good stuff. Or something in-between. A daily round-up would go something like this (starting with Katie, naturally):
Katie Holmes must have some serious spin doctors on her payroll – she keeps playing her cards so right. Her latest move? Taking Suri to a pet shop then refusing to buy her a puppy, no matter how much she begs. Suri has a sobbing fit and is dragged from the shop. Clever Katie is demonstrating to all the paparazzi photographers surrounding the shop that she’s a disciplinarian, unlike Tom, who used to let Suri get away with blue murder.
In the pap shots, Katie is wearing a red-striped dress from YONKS ago. Very unlike her to recycle. I’m guessing it’s all part of her catching cabs, doing her own shopping (Suri even has her own little reusable tote, which says “Suri’s shopping bag” cute!), acting like she’s a normal person jag. Which she is so not. Normal people aren’t surrounded by bodyguards and paparazzi photographers. But points to her for trying.
And I like to think she’s doing her best to give Suri a normal childhood. The little girl even does chores and makes her own bed. Which is more than my spoilt Sprogs can be bothered doing, they’re too busy lazing around watching The Clone Wars.
Demi Moore tried her best to give her daughters a relatively normal childhood too, hidden away in Idaho. But their relationship has disintegrated since Demi went to rehab. RadarOnline.com reckons Demi Moore’s daughters are considering getting a restraining order against their mother to stop her from trying to contact them. “Demi has been calling them incessantly and emailing them, leaving them tearful messages and begging them to call her and the girls are sick of it,” the source said. “It is a really drastic measure and not something they are considering lightly but they just feel like they want some peace and quiet.”
There’s no peace and quiet when you’re the daughters of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher is your stepdad. Get used to it. I know Demi’s messed up, but when your mum’s in a bad place, is cutting her out of your life the right approach? If something – heaven forbid – should happen to Demi, the guilt they’ll feel will be huge. Going on what the punters had to say about Scout getting arrested for drinking beer, the world will never let them forget their actions either.
Meanwhile, Ashton Kutcher has been throwing water at paparazzi photographers at a Kenny Chesney concert in California. He was wearing a plaid button-down shirt and cowboy hat at the time, so maybe he was trying to hide the evidence of his style crime.
Uma Thurman had a baby girl on Sunday. “Mom and baby are doing well,” her rep told People magazine. She’s 42. I feel tired just thinking about it. Fortunately she’ll be able to afford lots of help because she’s a Hollywood star and the daddy is financier Arpad Busson. Uma already has two kids, Maya, 14, and Levon, 10, to her ex-husband Ethan Hawke. Arpad has two kids to Elle Macpherson, Flynn, 14, and Cy, 9.
The gossip columnists have been cheerily referring to Arpad as Uma’s on/off boyfriend. So they’re obviously expecting the love affair to last. But Elle managed to cling on to the confirmed commitment-phobe for nine years, maybe Uma will too.
Meanwhile, a lovely commenter called Dawn on the People website said: “Meal ticket for an ageing actress! Why not call the kid what it really is.”
You know, Dawn, I’m not thinking money is a problem for that pair.
I’m horrified to hear that members of the Westboro Baptist Church want to picket actor Sage Stallone’s funeral.
Poor Sage was a hermit, apparently, and was dead for at least three days before he was finally found, according to TMZ. Sylvester is apparently grief-stricken.
Margie Phelps, daughter of Westboro leader Fred Phelps, tweeted to her 5,600 followers: “Thrice-married rebel taught his son to mock God. #picketfuneral” and ”Adulterous dad brought wrath of God on son. #BloodOnDadsHands #picketfuneral #woe,” Phelps tweeted, adding, “Tell @TheSlyStallone to mourn for his sins, not pimp out son’s dead body to more proud sin!”
Now I’m all for freedom of speech, no matter how repugnant, but I just can’t seem anything Christian about picketing a funeral. Is that really what God wants? I was brought up Baptist and it’s not something I remember from scripture lessons or sermons.
I’m rolling my eyes at the reports Miley Cyrus wants to get up the duff. Like I’ve suggested previously, slow down girl. “Miley and Liam really want to have a baby quickly,” a source close to the Cyrus family told Us Weekly. Apparently the couple are motivated by the fact that Liam’s older brother, Chris Hemsworth, recently became a new dad. Well there’s a great reason to become a teen mum …
OK, that’s it for now. What do you reckon? Any potential? Kinda needs celeb pics … hmmmm …
