I awoke this morning to see that my hits as a result of Charlotte Church searches have gone through the roof, which means I sat on this information for too long.
A week or so ago, my source gave me what appears to be an ultrasound that confirms the news that Charlotte Church is pregnant, and suggests that the father may not be who she is now claiming that it is.
This is a really great behind-the-scenes story by Howie involving a contestant's Faith, which of course culminated in Penn railing about his particular brand of militant Atheism. I think Howie countered Penn rather well, coming out on top.
EDIT: Spelled Howie's last name correctly this time and added a little bit more of a description.
EDIT again: fixed typo. Posting first thing in the morning is a bad idea, apparently.
The following is a public service announcement for other Olympics-challenged individuals such as myself.
Apparently there are now two famous people with the name Sasha Cohen, one spelled with a C, one without.
This is Olympic figure skater Sasha Cohen. You may have heard something about her falling on the ice during competition or somesuch. Now if you were me and you heard that, it would have confused the heck out of you, because:
this is Sascha (Baron) Cohen. He is not only not a figure skater, but probably wouldn't pass the mandatory drug testing required to be one. Chances are pretty good that he is tight with those Jamaican bobsledders though and really, he wouldn't have any more room 'round his neck for any additional gold medallions anyway. Check it! Jah.
However, according to my anonymous source, the official story is omitting several details. First off, there's the quickly mentioned fact that Bryan Adams wasn't even in London at the time. Then there's the laughably specific information as to what they were having for breakfast; the only time someone gives that much information is when they're lying. You don't say "I cooked breakfast, you know, with eggs and everything... and bacon, and, um toast" unless you don't want people to know what you really had for breakfast.
So why be quick to point out that the only concievable male to be in the house isn't there, and lie about what you had for breakfast? Simple: there was a famous male in the house, and he has very specific tastes when it comes to women and breakfast foods.
Here's a photo sent to me by an anonymous source, taken in a park near Bryan Adam's home on the evening before Lindsay's emergency hospital vist.
Do you still believe the story that Linday's mom has been feeding the media? I sure don't. Do you think maybe Charlotte Church is jealous of all the attention Wilford is lavishing on Lindsay, and it is she who sent me the photo? I think it is most definitely a possibility.
So did something happen to Charlotte Church in the last few days or something? Both friday and today I've gotten almost double the traffic I normally get, with the extra 50% going almost entirely to my various pages about Charlotte Church's antics with Wilford Brimley, coming from various incarnations of Google. The UK seems to be the primary origin of most of this traffic, but a fair bit has been coming from inside the US as well. Any ideas?
Because I am a big fan of movies (just not actually going to go see them) I read lots of movie news. Today there was one notable item that really caught my eye, possibly because it involved genitalia.
It seems that model/actor Brandon Routh, who will be next seen as Clark Kent in the upcoming Superman Returns, has a really large penis. It also seems that this large member, when combined with skin-tight lycra, is creating a bulge that Warner Bros. wants removed.
Rumor has it they're going to use the same digital editing techniques used earlier this year to reduce the size of Lindsay Lohan's spectacular rack to make The Man of Steel's Kryptonian crotch less bulgerific. Now I realize the pantsal region is one casually described as 'where the sun doesn't shine', but surely Earth's yellow sun1 penetrates into his pants at least a little, thus making that area super strong as well?
The thing I really don't get is, the demographic for this film is predominantly homosexual males2 (with the odd sprinkling of women who like to look at well-built guys in tights.) What on earth would be the gain of making the film less appealing to both of these demographics?
1: if you are not familiar with Superman's second (and current) origin story, he comes from a solar system with a red sun. When exposed to our completely different yellow sun, he gains amazing powers such as super strength, super speed, flight, heat vision, cold breath, some sort of strange energy weapon taking the form of the S on his chest that he can throw at bad guys3, or whatever else they feel like making him do on any given day.
2: this film was greenlit largely based on the popularity of the WB's popular show Smallville, which is arguably the gayest show on television. What? You don't believe me? I'll give you a quick plot summary in the unlikely event that you don't watch this show (and seriously, you must be watching it, because it is still on the air.)
Clark is a teenager like any other teenager growing up on a farm in Kansas save for one tiny little difference. See, Clark has a secret that prevents him from being himself in front of his peers, from maintaining relationships with the girls that love him, and from admitting he is the way that he is.
What is stopping him from fessing up? The fear of being outcast and ostracised for his what makes him different, fear of being called a freak and ultimately, fear of being feared by people that used to respect him.
Clark has serious troubles with the ladies. No matter how great the woman, every girl he has gotten involved with has ended up giving up on him because when it comes down to it, he just isn't capable of feeling the same way about them as they do about him, and he's not sure why. He can't open up to them about the fear he has tearing him apart inside or the emotions that drive him.
Then there's the hunky billionaire, Lex Luthor. Lex is an older, richer and incredibly fashionable man who happens to be built like a Calvin Klein underwear model. Lex is never, ever seen not wearing purple and has very expensive taste in clothing, cars and art. He harbors a dislike of women and has been known to physically abuse them, due in part to his father's blaming him for his mother's death when he was but a boy. His father never showed him any affection as a boy, thus leaving a gaping hole in his heart that can only be filled by the approval of a man.
Lex also has a wholly unhealthy fixation on Clark, bordering on obsession.
Lex's affection for Clark causes him to constantly lavish him with gifts. Any time Clark is in any trouble, Lex is there to give him some money to help solve his problems, pay for some medical bills, or simply let him come stay in his mansion whenever he needs some time away from his overcontrolling parents.
Clark is somewhat confused about Lex and the uncontrollable pull Lex's affections have on him. Time and time again, Lex betrays Clark's trust, but at the end of the day Clark is always willing to try to change Lex into the man he wishes, hell, knows he could be. Clark's parents on the otherhand don't like Lex, being generally distrustful of his status flaunting nature. This eats Clark up inside, making him wish they could just see the man he sees when he looks into those wonderful hazel eyes, not knowing (as we do) that soon they will become bitter rivals, clamboring for the affections of the entire nation.
See what I mean?
3: Seriously Warner Bros., what the fuck is up with that chest logo weapon? Brett Ratner, is that your fault? I'll bet you're going to blame it on Christopher Reeve now that he's dead, but I would appreciate it if you'd fess up. Thanks.
If you follow the news at all, chaces are that you've heard some of the allegations that Young DeBarge has been making regarding Janet Jackson's secret child -- the one that she's been hiding since her brief marriage to him in 1984. All the allegations have been denied and attributed to DeBarge trying to build up publicity surrounding the release of his new album, but my sources have just uncovered this rare photograph depicting Janet with her mysterious baby.
It seems as if Charlotte Church and Wilford Brimley brought along a guest on their recent trip to an unnamed beach. Based on photographic evidence, that guest appears to be Natalie Portman. This photograph, which was taken with the disposable camera Wilford Brimley brought along to document his adventures with Charlotte and Natalie, was given to me by a source that wishes to be unnamed. "Anonymity is the right thing to do," was my sources only reply to my request for permission to name him.
It is unknown whether Natalie was introduced to Wilford by Charlotte, or to Charlotte by Wilford, but one thing is certain: the trio were nearly inseparable throughout the course of the long weekend. Much time was spent in the cabin the three shared, while Cabana boys reported demands for pot after pot of boiling water to be brought to them. The only clue as to the use of the boiling water is perhaps the box of "hot grits" (manufactured by the company Wilford gained most of his public notoriety being the spokesman for) being held by Charlotte as Wilford snapped this photo.
