As Kaiser reported in April, Lourdes Leon is currently dating her schoolmate (from LaGuardia Performing Arts High School) Timothee Chalame, who also appears as the Vice President’s son on “Homeland.” She’s 16, and he’s 17, so it seems like a very appropriate relationship and not one that would automatically throw up red flags for any parent other than the obligatory, “OMG, my daughter has a boyfriend.”
Still, Lourdes doesn’t have any ordinary mother. She’s the daughter of Madonna, who is notoriously overprotective perhaps because mom knows very well what acts young people are capable ofMore >
Kaiser pointed out these photos to me of Courtney Stodden, 18, at some event, let’s see… the “Sizzling Sexy Summer Event at Shekhar Rahate Haute Couture.” This is the same very budget tacky prom dress-looking designer whose event she attended with her mom two months ago. Kaiser wrote that these photos were “amazing” and that “she looks 50 years old.” Well that makes sense, because Courtney’s husband, Doug Hutchison, is 53 years old and is said to control every aspect of her life. Neighbors of Courtney and her husband/dad claim that Doug “drinks day and night” and that he’s often heardMore >
We’ve heard rumors for some time that Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s youngest child, Willow, 12, wants out of the show business career her parents are creating for her and her brother, Jaden. Willow has laid relatively low lately while Jaden, 14, has a new blockbuster scifi movie coming out with his dad called After Earth. That movie premieres at the end of this month and Jaden is poised to become a young superstar. He has a rap career and a fashion line as well. So in comparison Willow’s pop stardom was short lived and she’s being a kid and doing her thing. But that’s ok, because herMore >
God help me, but these Benedict Cumberbatch photos are doing it for me. I’ve been slightly disappointed with his “look” for the Star Trek Into Darkness promotional tour – he’s been wearing a lot of beautifully cut black suits, and his dark Sherlock hair has been slicked back, and it’s all very… funereal and not all that hot. But these candid photos of Cumby out and about in NYC (doing a spot of shopping)? Mmm… yes! His hair isn’t so slicked back, those pants are all good, the socks are adorable and the sunglasses make him look like he stepped out of Fellini film. Oh, Cumby… why aren’tMore >
Here are some new photos of a leather-clad Viking having lunch with a “female friend” (those are Fame/Flynet’s words) in New York on Saturday. Alexander Skarsgard looks hot, right? The leather jacket seems kind of costume-y on him, but overall, he looks pretty good. I wonder who the friend is? I’m sure the Skars-loonies know. She seems like a taller, more robust version of Keira Knightley, right?
Yesterday’s Page Six had a funny little story about Alex. I guess he talked to them when he was doing the red carpet for the screening of What Maisie Knew last week, and he told Page SixMore >
For a while now, I’ve been letting the gender-guessing shenanigans for the royal baby just fall to the way-side. We’ll know what Duchess Kate and Prince William are having soon enough, and I’m actually looking forward to all of it – finding out the sex, finding out the name, finding out if Kate is actually back to living with her parents now and whether she plans to take the baby to her parents’ house for the first few months. We’ll know soon.
But! The UK tabloids are obsessed and it seems like everyone has Royal Baby Fever, so there has been endless reporting on potential baby namesMore >
Ryan Gosling just started promoting A Place Beyond the Pines, and I just wanted to discuss this HuffPo interview which I found very interesting. I go back and forth on Gosling – sometimes I find him too cute by half, and I don’t really get hot for “cute”. I get hot for dirty MEN. But Gosling is pretty, and he’s very talented (if he’s given the right material) and I can overlook the Disneyland thing sometimes. Basically, I’m giving him a break… today. Tomorrow, he might be on My List. I actually learned several pieces of new information (new for me) from this HuffPo piece. I heard theMore >
