Miley Cyrus has a new "guy pal" as they say.
Justin Gaston, a 20 year old underwear model and singer and Cyrus, age 15, star of Hannah Montana apparently met while Gaston was a contestant on dad Billy Ray Cyrus' Nashville Star program.
Here the two are seen going to church together in Nashville recently. Interesting "sunday go to meeting wardrobe"...
Gaston says the two are "friends"..

Seen here with a Vulcan inspired doo, it sure looks like it.

I have to admit, I am a complete addict of certain shows that do not have the passionate components of "most watched" dramedies on TV. I blame my loyalty to Masterpiece (Classic)Theater and Mystery! on my college seriousness... but who wants to discuss the bittersweetness of Cranford?!
We will dive into the blissfully non reality of fab TV...
Dancing with the Stars:
I didn't ... unlike the rest of America... really care for this season of Dancing with the Stars...the cast to me was a bit lackluster... Priscilla Presley was down right scary to look at .. bless her heart... but
Love Kristi Yamaguchi... she looks better after having 2 kids than she did when she was skating... you cannot help but respect that.
Yes, David C is more talented. Yes, David C has more charisma... especially now that he has dropped a little weight and gotten rid of the comb over look. However...
David C. made some awful song choices! I kept hoping he might try Nickelback (I Wanna Be a Rock Star) but it could have easily been unavailable to him... who knows..
Still - his performance was less than stellar.
David A - did really well with what he has got. Although... he should have reprised Angels at the piano. I think it may have been his best performance overall... when he really connected.
The bottom line is that David A had his game on.
We'll see who wins... what do I know?! I still think Michael Johns is better than both Davids.
Then there is....Grey's Anatomy.. of course!
Derek had sex with Rose... who seems very nice for a definite transitional person.. McDreamy recounts the incident to McSteamy and confides... "I thought about Meredith the whole time".. does that mean we forgive him? At least when Meredith went off the Vet (Chris O'Donnell), Derek was still married and trying to make it work?
Where is the adorable Vet now? Meredith needs a suitor to remind him that it doesn't go both ways..
another note... the whole Isiah Washington thing is "so whatever"... on Grey's they used the fired actor's picture and character's story line ... Dr. Burke found fame and fortune in leaving the hospital... blah..blah..blah.. Now, Washington is filing a grievance... blah blah blah... Shonda came up the character and story lines and it is just petty of him to have a fit...if he had just watched his words... we would have all been better off... now the whole F-bomb has caused 2 seperate unnecessary story lines about homosexuality in Grey's (the dying soldier and Dr. Hahn).
The kiss would have been a bigger deal if it would have involved characters we really care about..
Alex is crazy to take on crazy... no surprise... he likes the whole rescue thing if you remember the issues with Izzie.
Just waiting for Der and Mer reunion...

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Jessica Alba, who is pregnant with her first child, married long time boyfriend Cash Warren on Monday, her publicist said.
Alba, 27, best-known for her roles in the TV drama "Dark Angel" and the movie "Fantastic Four," announced she was engaged last year. The baby is expected in the early summer of 2008.
Alba's publicist Brad Cafarelli gave no further details of the marriage on Tuesday.
Alba met Warren on the set of "Fantastic Four" in 2004 where he was a director's assistant. Warren has since moved into producing.
No illegitimate child, eh?
I suppose if you are going to be on Sesame Street and pregnant... marriage would be a good thing???

Confirmation came later from the starlet..

See you Syesha.. good luck and good night. Good show girl!
This was probably the worst moment of the Idol's Top 3 show:
Okay - let's just say it ... David Archuleta... what in the world were you thinking?!
David Cook did not fare too much better... some of the surprising comments that Simon made!... left me questioning what the usual tyrannical darling had been taking... clearly Simon was having a Prozac evening.
I never thought I would say this... but... contrary to Randy, Paula, and Simon said... I felt...Syesha was the best of the three... Stunned to say this.. mediocre Syesha stole the show?! Loved her hair by the way... too fab...
Paula especially was wrong in her thoughts... she is assuming that Syesha wants to be another contemporary Rhianna... I think she is selling herself more as New York... theater... Broadway.. If she gets another shot... she should try Brand New Heavies' Stay This Way.. She would get the "wow" she needs.
The consensus seems to be that Syesha leaves tonight.. but, with the lack luster performances of the Top 3... we could easily see a Michael Johns' moment...
I still think one of the Davids will be the winner... without stage daddy... Archuleta fumbled... Cook still having issues with song choice...
Things that make you go hmmm...

TMZ has learned David Archuleta's dad, Jeff, has been officially banned from "American Idol."
Here's how it went down. "Idol" sources tell TMZ Jeff has been a complete pain in the ass, interfering with the entire production. He has badgered producers, the band, vocal coaches and even other contestants. The final straw came this week, when Jeff wanted to change the lyrics to David's first song, "Stand By Me." Jeff insisted on adding a verse from Sean Kingston's hit, "Beautiful Girls." Producers sent him an e-mail telling him the lyrics could not be changed. They were beyond pissed when David sang the song with Kingston's lyrics during the live show.
We're told by changing the lyrics, it created problems with the song's publisher and cost "A.I." a lot of money.
Jeff was ordered to sit with "A.I." lawyers on Wednesday, who told him he was "banned from being in the rooms where David was learning or rehearsing his songs." It's "Idol's" position, since David is 17, he does not need a guardian -- just a teacher. Jeff will be allowed to sit in the audience during the live show but he's 86'd from anything backstage.
Source say the other contestants were fed up with Jeff and didn't want him near them. Now they have their wish.
Our only question is ... without Daddy how will David Archuleta win Idol??? This looks like a check in David Cooks column!

Mariah ... now we know why she set her mind to loose all that weight!
She had to get into her wedding dress! Mariah and Nick Cannon wed in the Bahamas.
Britney goes home to Kentwood, LA to celebrate her pregnant underage sister, Jamie Lynn Spears baby shower...
what a joyous occasion...
Now, we have the Tom Cruise on Oprah show... celebrating 25 years..
Okay.. has anyone noticed that he isn't a star material anymore?? Whatever poor Tom had with all his wierdness..scientology... "Cruise Control" of Katie ...etc..
He seems to have lost his star power..that certain something that can carry film..the last time I saw it was Jerry Maguire..
I am not saying he isn't a nice guy but... he just isn't someone I would lust after.
Now Patrick Dempsey on the other hand... has that it quality. He just needs the right vehicle ... Made of Honor was not it.. he was awesome... but the story was worthy of his... hmmm..how should we put it???..magnetism?
Now I have always loved Robert Downey Jr. - even his off the wall roles ...like "Ian" in Wierd Science. But with all of his issues... talent without discipline = disaster...Downey did fumble .. alot. We are glad to see him back with Gwyneth in Iron Man! We will cross our fingers for Robert this time around!
Now, this is a really awesome, fun movie!

This is not good but we already know that talent is not the requirement for American Idol.. after all... Syesha is still there.
It will be one of the two Davids... the taste of America's audience is ... hmmm... how shall I put it... on the level of a G.E.D. from High School... clearly... Syesha is after all still there... Michael Johns, Jason Castro... are not.
So a David "Osmond" or a David "Pearl Jam"... hmmm.
Syesha is the least talented but because of her "crying moment"... she will be the most likely not kicked off... which means Jason Castro... "the guy most likely to pick the wrong song but has incredible talent" will likely go home...
Who was the winner of the evening? David Archuleta...
David Cook.. for good or bad... had the performances most likely to forget of the evening...
Looks like David Archuleta is going to win it... but who knows.. it is like the Democratic Nomination... everyone has an opinion but no one has the definitive prediction.
Friday, May 2, 2008
Yes, I watched Grey's Anatomy...What has Kate Walsh done with her hair?! Fire that stylist - that must be same one that chose this hideous red carpet hairstyle... Kate, darling, go back to the red, silky hair.. the dark, goth layers do NOT work.
The whole Dr. Hahn homosexuality is soo whatever... there must be someone for poor "straight" Dr. Torres... pleez
On a happier note... so many movies we are looking forward to this month:
First there is Made of Honor:
Plan to enjoy Patrick Dempsey without Shonda Rhimes writing him!
Sex and the City!!! May 30th:
We will be shocked if Carrie and Big actually marry... not just plan the wedding ...but make a real commitment! My guess is the only happily ever after will go to Charlotte...
Indiana Jones.. Kingdom of the Crystal Skull! May 22nd:
Thank Gawd it is Friday! Hand me my Grey Goose Salty Dog ...

Okay... this has been the year of tween Idol break down... I am starting to think that a course on decision making needs to be added to every school curriculum! Or perhaps Disney needs to create a parenting course required for stage Moms and Dads?
First, we have the Naughty Vanessa Hudgens who made us ask, "What did teens do before there were cameras on cell phones?"
Then we have the Poster Child for Teen Pregnancy, Jamie Lynn Spears...expecting a girl, we hear... lovely.. continuing the heritage of Spears' girls.
This week it is Miley Cyrus who is at the head of the class... While doing a cover shoot with Annie Lebowitz for Vanity Fair... Miley was allowed to make a bad decision about appropriateness of a particular set of photo shots...Daddy and baby sister had left the set for another appointment and Miley, aka Hannah Montana, was left with her Grandmother and a teacher.
First, I say, "Fire the teacher." Clearly she has not successfully done her job.
As for the rest... shame on Vanity Fair and Annie Lebowitz... put a 15 year old girl in a compromising situation?! No - she is not old enough to have made a better decision... on her own.
I am sure Playboy and Hustler have positions available for people with your "special" talents, Annie. By the way, the topless picture of Miley was down right Ugly... people pay you for that Gothic-from the 80's horror film shots?! Yuck!
Miley should have known better -at 15 years old - what 15 year old does... no matter how famous?
Daddy and Mommy need to be there no matter how legitimate the situation may be. This is not a good omen of what will happen in 3 years when Miley is 18 years old and expected to make all of her own choices... as well as take the consequences.
Disney needs to take note... Nick as well... even if the studios are supporting train wreck tween stars... eventually... Parents will not trust the studios for decent, wholesome entertainment and make other choices for their children. Rein those star parents in and make them do their job!
On a better note, Britney will be back on TV reprising her role on How I met Your Mother... and not making headlines with her decision making skills... thank goodness for Daddy. Maybe she can actually make it back to reality... time will tell.

I could not wait to watch last night's Grey's... Disappointed... didn't like Derek... McSteamy was pretty funny. But the most annoying thing I think was Meredith... did you see how horrible her skin looked? It was completely distracting!!!
Get thee to an esthetologist!!! Get a facial... They do have them in L.A. I've heard...
Although.. Rose's hair thing was rather noticeable.. I hear that Rogaine can do wonders for female baldness fortunately! Bless her rebound girl heart...

Well they must not be paying her by the word: Miley Cyrus just inked a deal to write her *choke, gag* memoirs – for what's being called a "seven-figure" deal.
15-year-old Miley will recount the portion of her life for which she has been a sentient human being for the Disney Book Group. MC says she hopes to "motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together." Yawn, but if those saucy snaps are any indication, Volume Two should be a hell of a lot hotter.
Miley made $18.5 million last year.
Unfortunately...my daughter will want to read this from cover to cover... worse... I know she and her friends will clammer to go to any book signing within a hundred miles of us...
Miley is adorable .... and Thank Gawd she is no Britney or Lilo...
Hmmm... insight on life from a 15 year old?.. charming...

Looking forward to hot.. hot.. Star Dad.. Patrick Dempsey.. aka, McDreamy... Joining us again on Thursday!!! At last! But... we are looking even more foward to Made of Honor (out May 2nd!).. Over an hour of Patrick Dempsey ...
Did you hear about what he did during the writers' strike?
from USA today
During his writers'-strike-induced hiatus from Grey's Anatomy, which returns with new episodes Thursday (ABC, 9 p.m. ET/PT), Patrick Dempsey whisked wife Jill away for a romantic Italian getaway. No kids. No cameras. And no reporters.
The couple, married since 1999, took in a fashion show in Milan; then, in Lake Como, they were among many marveling at the waterfront estate of that city's most famous resident: George Clooney.
He is so dreamy - even unscripted...
On another note... yes ... rumor has it that Angie (baby and all) and Brad are planning a small intimate wedding this summer (Junish - we hear). The ceremony is supposedly non religious... and her father, Jon Voight (who Angie ex-communicated when he implicated that his daughter might be a little nuts..) is said to be walking her down the aisle... we will see... whatever the case... the couple is soo absolutely Louis Viutton Luggage in a third world country... pretentious playing Peace Corps..
Okay, Okay...American Idol does Andrew Lloyd Webber...
No I did not watch it in real time...after what they did to Michael Johns??? No way can deal with Seacrest and the sad choices that America makes... looked it over this morning on YouTube..
An evening of bad song choices... and surprises... this should have been "Theme Park Singer", David Archuleta's night... but it was absolutely Syesha's. Here is how it should have gone...
David Archuleta should have sung "That's all I Ask of You" or "Music of The Night" instead his performance was forgettable.
David Cook should have done Jesus Christ Superstar... whereas Carly should have done "Don't Cry for Me Argentina"...Jason Castro...should have been the one to do an accoustic guitar version of "Think of Me".
And Brooke...Why?! Why! Why didn't you do the song "I Don't Know How to Love Him"?!!! It would have been absolutely perfect for you???
It makes no sense to me... but then neither did casting Michael Johns away...
The night went as it did..Syesha won this round.. no question. I have always thought that Syesha was a bit of the New York school of Fame - ish.. so Broadway should work for her. The loser... David Archuleta.. he should have solidified his lead... at this point ... I think it is anybody's game.

Coco Scene! American Idol vs. Britain's Got Talent ... Could Andrew Johnston out sing David Archuleta?
I have had so many emails about who this child is...
Carlisle choirboy Andrew Johnston stunned judges on the first Britain’s Got Talent audition show when he performed the classical requiem Pie Jesu.
13 year-old hoodie-wearing Andrew, who is the head chorister at Carlisle Cathedral, was visibly shaking before he opened his mouth to sing. And just as Paul Potts had done the year before, he stunned the audience and judges alike with the powerful sound that came out.
After his rendition and a standing ovation, Amanda told the nervous lad she had been “mesmerised” by his performance. Piers agreed, adding he thought Andrew had “a very good chance” of winning the contest. And a near-tearful Simon advised, “Your confidence has been undermined. But I think you are better than you think you are”. Knowing the power of the Cowell opinion, he added for extra impact, “Hear it from me, you are good.”
The judges’ comments topped off a nerve-wracking day for the shy schoolboy who has had to stand up to local bullies since he first joined the choir at the age of six. He said, “Even my mates are always telling me to leave the singing. But I live on a council estate and I want to make something out of my life.”
Speaking after his successful audition at the Manchester Apollo, mum Morag told us, “This has been an expensive day for us, travelling down to the audition, but it’s so special for him - it’s something he will never forget.”
“Now we’ll go back on the train in luxury, and we’ll get him an Indian meal. It’s all he’s been talking about”.
“He does a paper round, but to say well done I’ll buy him the computer game he’s been saving up for. And he can put the money toward buying a cage for his hamster Chubby instead.”
“I’m so proud of him today. He has a brilliant voice. But no matter what he sounds like, he’s still just a young boy at heart.”I see a movie in this story's future... don't you? But... we have to say Brilliant..wonderful..stunning...
After watching a few clips of Britain's Got Talent from last season.. I must say ... I am soo much more impressed with their winner.
And just think... American Idol only lost Kristie Lee Cook... the buzz is sooo gone.
Wednesday, April 16, 2008
But - I admit curiosity got the best of me...So, I turned to YouTube to feed my guilty pleasure.. I mean..I technically am not giving FOX additional ratings..
I loved David Cook's story. His terminally ill brother who went through so much to just see him perform.. Bless him. There is no question that he is the Idol most likely to make the money.. especially if he has a band to back him.
It is no wonder David Cook had tears in his eyes... Knowing the story ..
But - a story that got us even more... put me in tears... you have got to see:
It is so Josh Groban on Ally McBeal...

Michael Johns voted off?! Well, that is it for me and this American Idol season. This early? Disappointment is an understatement.. I suppose I have better things to do with my time than watch a bunch of wannabes that are "With -out" to quote Heath Ledger...David Cook is talented but not much to look at...could teeter on the Taylor Hicks fiasco. Who cares who wins now? It now seems clear why idol winners are finding themselves dropped from record labels.
I think it is pathetic that those like Syesha and Carly are still there considering their inability to produce a memorable performance....It would be one thing if Johns were voted off when there are only the top 3 or even 5 but at this point?! It is ridiculous... the things we allow ourselves to watch when there is a writers' strike...when is Grey's Anatomy starting?!!
Oh well we all vote with viewership and I will not be contributing to the rest of their season or their "AI Gives to Bono" fund...
I have eliminated it from my DVR... done... over..now .. let me add Grey's ... and hmmm...
Coco out -
Wednesday, April 9, 2008
Yes... I watched American Idol...the word: "underwhelming".
You would think with this week's theme of "songs that inspire"- there would be equally inspiring performances.
But... for the exception of 2 performances ... the awesome performance of Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Jason Castro.
Hands down the highlight of the evening!
..The borderline "well done" Angels...by David Archuleta..
The rest were at best "okay".
Disappointing... It was an odd evening when Simon seemed kinder that usual...David Cook looked surprisingly thinner with continued improvement on his hair... but handicapped by his Michael Jackson inspired white jacket (yuck!) and a less than stellar performance... Michael Johns looked very European chic with and unavoidable hotness and unfortunately a poor song choice... as for the rest... do we really care?
In a competition where song choice is incredibly important... I thought I would suggest a Top 5 list of songs that should have been considered by the 9 wannabe an Idols...as well as who would have been wise to sing them:
1. One name: Bob Dylan Knockin on Heaven's Door, Times Are A Changing, Like a Rolling Stone- Brooke White ( a quiet version of any of these would have been cool). Want something sweet and whimsical? Lovin' You, Minnie Ripperton.. but don't try to do her high note of "ahhh".. instead do a whispered "hmmm". You want inspiration? Try this:
In 1976, Riperton revealed t0 Flip Wilson, who was guest hosting for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show, that she had undergone a mastectamy due to breast cancer. At the time of her diagnosis, Minnie found out that her cancer had already spread to the lymphatic system. Despite her grim prognosis, Minnie continued touring in 1977 and 1978, and became the national spokesperson for the American Cancer Society 1978-79 campaign.Eventually the cancer took its toll, and by June 1979, Minnie was confined to bed. She entered Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California for the last time on July 10th. On Thursday July 12, 1979, Minnie Riperton died peacefully in her husband's arms. Her family inscribed her headstone with a lyric of her most famous song, "Lovin' you is easy cause you're beautiful. from Wikipedia
I doubt there would be a dry eye in the house given the quality of Brooke's voice.
2. Wake Up Everybody - by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes - Syesha should have been all over this song! Another option for her would be anything by Corrine Bailey Rae... Like a Star would have been a stunner... a memorable performance... something she has yet to do.
3. You Only Get What You Give- by The New Radicals - David Cook could have done an amazing version of this and nailed it. You want to rock?! Van Halen, Dreams... would have rocked the house!
4. Change the World by Eric Clapton - Michael Johns all the way. This would have won it for him. Now.. the big rock song... Aerosmith was not the choice... Pride from U2 would have been IT. Start soft almost acoustic and then build to the finish.
5. Hero, Mariah Carey - Carly Smithson's name is all over this! It is a happy song that could have really showcased her voice! If she insisted on Queen - she should have sung You're My Best Friend.
Okay, I have not said anything about Kristy Lee Cook's options.. let me just add a bonus suggestion..one thought.. Barbara Mandrell once did a song called I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool.. I think Kristy could have brought down the house with that one.
My vote is still riding on Michael Johns to pull it off... but David Cook will do a Daughtry and be the most successful.

We are glad to see Daddy's influence has been such a good thing for her!
The shows we have been presented have been an example of how the public enjoys a good trainwreck... this being said .. I must admit I am as sad as the rest in my TV choices..
My Top 5 Bad TV Can't live without Shows..
5. Real Housewives of New York City (Bravo)... the only one that resembles me or any of my circle is the single one.. Bethany.. maybe the Countess too..
It is hilarious to see these women consider themselves fabulous ... wealthy yes... Fabulous??? Come live in my world and then check yourself dear!
But it is far better than the Real Housewives of Orange County...
2. The Hills (MTV)... love this show... Hate Heidi ... have no respect for Audrina... tolerate LC ... love.. adore.. Whitney..
1. American Idol (FOX)... I am way too hooked... I am thinking Michael Johns
..look at him... hard not to think him
... yes David Cook
is talented but... could he make the cover of GQ?
Dear Donna... get used to the word..dysfunctional.. this will be the kinder.. gentler word your children will use in describing their childhood with you when they are sitting on the Oprah-esque show of the era as adults suffering from the woes of the life you never prepared them for!
Don't you love television?!

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- It's a case that shocked Houston. A mother, Andrea Yates, drowned her own five children in a bathtub. And now, Eyewitness News has learned her ex-husband has taken another important step in moving on with his life.
In June, it will be seven years since Rusty Yates lost all of his children. And now, he's starting a new family. He told Eyewitness News he has a new baby. He confirmed for us today that his new wife, Laura, recently had a baby. He wouldn't tell us much else about the child.
We don't know exactly when the baby was born or the child's gender. He does tell us mom and child are doing fine.
Rusty and Laura married in March of 2006 following his divorce from Andrea. The wedding took place just days before Andrea's second trial in the drowning death's of she and Rusty's five children.
An appeals court threw out Yates' first conviction due to false testimony from a key prosecution witness. The second trial ended in her being found not guilty by reason of insanity. She's since been sent to a state mental facility.
George Parnham represented Andrea Yates at trial. While he worries about any negative effect on her therapy, he says the news of this child's birth doesn't Seem to have affected her.
"She is at peace with the issue," said Parnham. "She only wants the best for Rusty, his wife and their new child. Andrea's position is that that life goes on."
Talk about a person who should have a license to be a father!! His current wife is old enought to know better...but that sweet baby....Poor Kid.

We have to admit we have a little thing for the Aussie Hottie - Michael Johns
Maybe it is the fact that Heath left us far too soon... and there is just something ...
familiar... that and Johns has a cool "Jim Morrison-ish " rockstar voice. But, we will see what happens...
Finally, speaking of parents, let's give it up for "Mr. You Give Dads a Bad Name" Richie Sambora. Caught drunk driving with 10-year old daughter Ava in the car. Wow, leaving Heather was a great decision. You make a swinging single dad, Rich. Love the pic by the way..

Meet Max and Emme - the adorable month-old twins of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.
Taken at the couple's Long Island mansion, the pictures offer a rare peek inside the family's ritzy lifestyle, which includes a nursery decked out in crib couture - and a chandelier.
Born Feb. 22, little Maximilian and Emme Muniz(Daddy's real last name) were showered with the best of gifts, including matching his-and-hers baby fur wraps from Dolce & Gabbana, one of Mom's favorite fashion houses.
The babes will also enjoy twin sets of toys and care from two full-time nurses and a butler. Despite the staff, mom and dad say they are doing most of the work.
"I've been very career-oriented my whole life and very focused on my own world and my own life," said Lopez, 38, "and all of a sudden, the focus just shifts."
"It's like, 'Whoosh!' I want to do everything for them," she said.
"It'll be three in the morning," Anthony, 39, said, "and we'll be like, 'Next feeding in 30 minutes! Okay, cool!'"
The couple conceived without medical help.
"It was all natural," said Lopez. "We didn't do in vitro, which I know was reported. Everybody assumed that because we had twins."
The news that they were expecting a diapered duo floored both Lopez and Anthony.
"[The doctor] said, 'Oh, my God! There's one baby, see the heart beating? And there's the other one!'" said Lopez. "Marc started crying again, and I started giggling."
"One person said, 'Everything with you is a production!'" added Anthony.
After what she said was a morning-sickness-free pregnancy and an easy C-section delivery, Lopez has a plan to lose the last of her 50 pounds of baby weight.
"I was thinking, 'What could I do this year to give me a great feeling of accomplishment?'" she said. "I want my babies to be proud of me. Maybe I'll do a triathlon."
You go, J.Lo!
For the exception of admitting to 2 nurses... a butler is completely understandable!.. a New Coco Mother is born!
As for darling Emme and Max... they will love Dragon Tales!

It's official. Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry's bundle o' joy is called Nahla Ariela Aubry, her rep has confirmed to E! News per an earlier US Weekly item.
As celebrity baby monikers go, this one doesn't rank as one of the wackiest, but what does it mean?
North Alberta Health Libraries Association is a tad esoteric. So we're guessing the Arabic Expression "drink of water" probably hits closer to the mark.
Which is going to come in handy when Vitaminwater comes calling for their next poster girl.
Considering how much she wanted this child... Dear Halle has entered into the "twilight zone" of names. No family names... no name that could be a tribute Golden Hollywood (Greer, Harlow)... but then again...We guess with "Nala" from The Lion King and "Ariel" from The Little Mermaid that is a tribute of some sort.Go Disney!
We hope dear Halle will always enjoy fame because otherwise... poor Nahla might have some issues with other children who do not understand her "uniqueness".
Tuesday, March 18, 2008
But... reality check... they are doing a movie together "Marley & Me"... this could all be a bit of PR.
It would be nice to see a normalish golden couple again. Goodness knows Brangelina could never qualify.

By JILL LAWLESS
LONDON (AP) — A judge has awarded Heather Mills a total of $48.6 million in the financial settlement of her divorce from former Beatle Paul McCartney.
A document released by the Family Court says the judge awarded Mills a lump sum of $33 million plus assets she currently holds worth $15.6 million. Mills says she is "very happy" with the settlement.
The court ruled that the couple's daughter should receive a «periodical payments order» of 35,000 pounds (around US$70,000 or €45,000) a year. On top of that, McCartney will pay for the child's nanny and school fees.
The settlement has been a long time coming for the couple, who separated two years ago, after four years of marriage. At the time they said the parting was «amicable» and insisted «both of us still care about each other very much.
But the split has grown fractious since McCartney filed for divorce alleging his wife's «unreasonable behavior.
Mills claimed McCartney failed to protect her and their daughter from slander, death threats and other abuse, and accused the media of persecuting her. In November, Mills said she had been «treated worse than a murderer or a pedophile,» despite years of work for land mine victims and animal welfare charities.
When a woman continually speaks of charity work ... and what they will give charity...using money from someone else's fortune as she is assured of a salaried nanny for her 1 child... well... let us just say... certain words come to mind.. gold digger..sad...
NEW YORK (AP) — Halle Berry doesn't just play a mom in movies anymore.
The 41-year-old actress had a baby girl Sunday, and "is doing great," her publicist Meredith O'Sullivan told People.com, the Web site of People magazine. It is her first child.
The father is 32-year-old model Gabriel Aubry. The two met while shooting a Versace ad in Los Angeles two years ago.
Berry told Oprah Winfrey on her show last year that playing a mother in her latest movie, "Things We Lost in the Fire," helped convince her that motherhood was for her.
"I think it validated that I was meant to be a mother because every day I dealt with the character as a mother and thinking as a mother," Berry said. "It let me know that I must be a mother."
Berry won the best-actress Oscar for 2001's "Monster's Ball." She also won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for 1999's "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge."
Berry had said she and Aubry don't plan to marry, but feel fully committed to each other.
Oh the Joys of single parenting! Still no name announced for baby Berry-Aubrey.
Congrats Halle...but commitment without the benefit of marriage ... screams even less than 50% potential success. Although we admit.. Goldie and Kurt are the exception.

Hollywood actress KIRSTEN DUNST has become the latest star to reportedly check into rehab - joining the same Utah medical facility as EVA MENDES.
According to U.S. magazine Star, the 25-year-old was admitted to Cirque Lodge after a week of wild partying at last month's (Jan08) Sundance Film Festival.
The facility is also the same centre where Lindsay Lohan spent last summer (07) for substance abuse problems.
A source tells Star, "She (Dunst) desperately needed help. She seemed to be intoxicated when she checked in because she was acting really erratic. She was extremely emotional, constantly breaking down in tears.
"She not in a good place right now, but thankfully, she's getting the help she needs." Dunst recently dismissed rumours she was on the verge of a breakdown after reports surfaced of her alleged "erratic" behaviour at Sundance, with sources claiming her "odd" antics left friends apologising to other partygoers. But representatives for the Spider-Man star denied the reports insisting, "Kirsten is fine."
That makes two this week that we have heard of....
TMZ has learned "Designing Women" star Delta Burke checked herself into a psychiatric hospital last week for depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and "hoarding."
We truly hope poor Delta comes out... well... put together again.
Now Dear Kirsten... who in Hollywood is next...
Funny thing is... sweet Kirsten checks in ... bless her heart.. and Britney, poor thing, checks out...
The following statement was released to CNN's Anderson Cooper by Jamie and Lynne Spears, Britney's parents:
"As parents of an adult child in the throws (sic) of a mental health crisis, we were extremely disappointed this morning to learn that over the recommendation of her treating psychiatrist, our daughter Britney was released from the hospital that could best care for her and keep her safe. We are deeply concerned about our daughter's safety and vulnerability and we believe her life is presently at risk. There are conservatorship orders in place created to protect our daughter that are being blatantly disregarded. We ask only that the court's orders be enforced so that a tragedy may be averted."
What a rehab, psyched out month.. and we are only half way through... maybe it has something to do with the writers strike? Is this what happens when actors do not have any writers to give them character?...hmmm...
