Coco Scene! Heath Ledger... Controversy..

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

HEATH LEDGER's publicist has spoken out against rumours of the late actor's alleged drug use - branding the claims "heinous lies".
Mara Buxbaum, who worked for the star before his sudden death, insists the Brokeback Mountain actor was never addicted to hard drugs and is outraged at the media speculation surrounding the 28-year-old's tragic passing.
Video footage of Ledger partying with two strangers at a Hollywood drugs party was aired in the U.S. on Wednesday (30Jan08) - and although the scenes don't show the late star indulging in any illegal activities, the TV shows involved have decided against broadcasting any more of the tape out of respect for Ledger's family.
Several U.S. websites have also reported claims that Ledger's fiancee, Michelle Williams, ended their relationship over an alleged drug habit.
But Buxbaum is keen to stress the rumours are not true.
Buxbaum tells New York Daily News, "(The story is) fabricated... just one lie among many. The speculation is heinous." Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment on 22 January (08).
An autopsy failed to reveal how he died, although police believe his death could be drug-related as five different bottles of prescription drugs were found around his apartment.

Okay... enough is enough... where was the paparazzi when the poor guy was alive? If drug addiction was an issue then putting it out in the open might have helped not only save his life but also, his relationship with his fiancee, Michelle Williams. But... it has yet to be determined what stopped his heart...All we know is that these things being said about Poor Heath is what his daughter will grow up learning ... that is just wrong.

We don't want to know anymore and will not contribute further to the assisination of his character. We do not debate what he did or did not do in his lifetime...but Poor Heath is gone.. dear Michelle and Matilda will have to deal with what remains. A little dignity pleez!

We will forever recall Heath as the hot, hot, hot guy who serenaded Julia Stiles from the bleachers... in Ten Things I Hate About You... how we envied "Kat"! We still use one of his expressions from the movie..
Patrick (Heath)"Ah... Bianca. No offense or anything, I mean, I know everyone digs you're sister. But, um... She’s without."

Well in this case... the Media and dirt diggers are sooo "

Actress DENISE RICHARDS has topped a list of the worst bond girls.
Richards, who played Dr. Christmas Jones opposite Pierce Brosnan's 007 in The World Is Not Enough, beat out competition from A View To A Kill's Tanya Roberts and Moonraker's Corinne Clery to claim Entertainment Weekly's unflattering number one spot.
Meanwhile, Ursula Andress was named the U.S. publication's favourite Bond girl, followed by Goldfinger's Honor Blackman and On Her Majesty's Secret Service's Diana Rigg.

Oprah is finally going to come to an end.... eventually...why not Marie? Who could dislike Marie? That's like having it out for puppy dogs..You go girl! Make the most of your comeback moment!

Coco Scene! SAG Awards... red carpet critique!

Okay winners and losers at SAG... the first red carpet for fashion in ages... go here to see who won the actual awards... what we are going chat about is the fun rumors.. fashion... and oh faux pas!!

Baby.. baby... BABY??? hmmm..pregnancy rumors swirl... Angelina drinks water for the night.. Maybe she is the designated driver??? Looking at the dress... she is either expecting or just challenging us to give in to the rumors.


OH- NO. Sandra Oh. Hideous.
Sandra Oh
In the past, dear Sandra has always been a fashion diva... clearly mirrors were not present while she was dressing ... or perhaps she partakes of the same drug regimen that Britney has never admitted to... so sad.

Top reasons why we love red carpet glamour.

Coco Scene! Heath Ledger...dead at 28... from natural causes???

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

From TMZ:
It sounds strange, but sources intimately connected with the Heath Ledger investigation tell TMZ it's possible the actor died of natural causes.

The reason they think that -- it's now appearing that the level of toxicity (from medication) in Ledger's system was low enough that it may not have caused his death. These sources say Heath's heart stopped. It could have been a heart attack but it's not certain, at least not yet. Although it's bizarre that a 28-year-old could die of natural causes, it happens.

We've also learned authorities do not believe the housekeeper heard Ledger snoring when she walked in his bedroom at around 1:00 PM. Sources tell us, a fireman observed rigor mortis in Ledger's jaw shortly after arriving on scene at around 3:30 PM. Sources say they now believe Ledger was dead for around three hours prior to their arrival, so they don't believe the housekeeper could have heard snoring.

Authorities are also annoyed at news reports that there may have been a sinister plot to remove illegal drugs from Ledger's apartment before cops and firemen arrived. There are reports out there that the masseuse called Mary-Kate Olsen and a plot was hatched to have her bodyguard remove certain drugs. Authorities tell us that's impossible, because the cops were there the entire time the bodyguard was present and there would have been no opportunity to carry out such a plan. They say it's a made up story.

As we first reported, the masseuse contacted the bodyguard because she knew he was a licensed EMT.

We had heard that Heath may have been suffering from pneumonia... we wonder if that may have had anything to do with heart failure?

We would love it there were a juicy scandal or conspiracy... but we have a feeling that.. NO.. it wasn't AIDs... an overdose... suicide... or a plot of assassination by an outside source...just a tragic ... sad death...

Poor Heath... poor Matilda...

Coco Scene! Brad Picks Katrina Orphan For Next Brangelina Adoption

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT are reportedly planning to adopt a child orphaned by Hurricane Katrina.
The pair, who already have three adopted tots, have been working tirelessly to rehouse people affected by the storm that hit the U.S gulf coast in 2005. And Pitt has dedicated time and money to the Make it Right organisation, which is rebuilding a destroyed section of New Orleans.
American magazine Star claims the couple has fallen in love with a girl whose parents were killed in the Katrina devastation, and they want to add her to their expanding family.
The couple already has three adopted children, Maddox, six, Pax, four and Zahara, three, and a natural baby, Shiloh, 19 months.
A source tells the tabloid, "Brad met a little girl and fell completely in love. He and Angie had already decide that their next child would be a daughter. They were originally going to adopt a girl from Africa, but now Brad is sure this child is the one."

Well, at least this time Poor Brad gets to play a part in the next acquisition...

Coco Scene! Moment of Truth Reality Game Show

Yes.. we have to admit.. we watched. It was like looking in shock at a car wreck and thanking God that it was not you!

First, constantents allow themselves to be put on a lie detector machine. They are then asked countless personal questions. The contestant does not know the outcome of the polygraph test. 21 of the questions are chosen for the game. You answer in front of love ones on the stage with you, as well as the studio audience and cameras. If you answer incorrectly... you are gone. There are several levels to reach a total of $500,000.

Never.. would put ourselves in jepoardy like that but...
It is on our list of guilty pleasures.


Coco Scene! And the Oscar goes to who??!!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

In a Coco Mommy's World movie nights are fun and easy dates with your spouse or family outing events...we go to see movies that are entertaining, amusing, ... and can take your mind off of the stress at hand.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The actors, producers, directors..etc.. that make up the Academy, decide upon an annual list of the best and brightest in movies.... whether or not they are in touch with the normal society around them is often questionable...clearly, the populace of 2008 Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences is not even on the same planet as the rest of us.

For the exception of the movie Juno - which has rallied due to the Golden Globe attention... was there a single movie on their best picture list that someone other than a film critic... and those who think they should be a film critic... actually saw? (for a list of this year nominees go here: oscars )

Was it so long ago that movies like Lord of the Rings, Rocky, Shakespeare in Love, even The Godfather were looked favorably upon by the Academy, movie goers, as well as box office receipts? People actually saw movies before they were nominated and could watch the awards rooting for their favorites!

Sometimes... we just get the feeling that Hollywood is paternalistic to anyone outside of the movie biz.. after all, they know what is best for us... "us".. the people that actually buy their own designer clothes and handbags... and generally look at pregnancy before marriage as a bad thing.

We know, we know... we have the People's Choice Awards... but let us just say... other than the very missed red carpet fashion critiques... maybe the revised or cancelled Oscar ceremony due to the mafia-sque writer's strike would not be a bad thing...

Our prediction is that if The Oscars make it to production ... the Academy ... as well as ABC will need to hope and pray that American Idol, or CSI anything isn't on an opposing channel. Or the ratings of the 80th Academy Awards will be as minuscule as the audience that have seen any of the movies being recognized.

Rant over.

Heath Ledger - Now we know more...

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The results of poor Heath's autopsy, as of now, has been found inconclusive. The Medical Examiner's Office has said it will be another 10 days before all the tests.. etc are in...

It was a "Marilyn Monroe" death. He was found in the nude with pills at his bedside. There is talk that he was suffering from pneumonia... stress.. and it likely that if indeed there was an overdose... it was accidental.

We had heard that this incredibly hot, hot actor died from someone who knew him.... from Brooklyn days when he and his partner Michelle Williams were still engaged to be married.... and both raising their now 2 yr old daughter...Matilda Rose... together.
It just goes to show how very fragile life is ... and the stuff legend is made of...

He was 28.

It is tragic... sad...

Britney... Lindsay... beware...


Brangelina plans to Adopt again...

From Digitalspy:

Angelina Jolie's brother has confirmed that the actress is to adopt another African girl with partner Brad Pitt.

The couple plan to tour orphanages in March in search of a sister to bond with Ethiopian daughter Zahara.

James Haven is quoted in the Daily Mirror as saying: "They are creating one big family and will keep adopting as long as they are able to.

"Angie and Brad talk about how much they have been taught by their kids. In many respects Angie saved Zahara's life and there are so many more children whose lives she could save and she talks about that constantly."

I believe the position of God has been taken Angie... and no... there were no nannies and daycare in that job description.

But how can we be so brutal... about a girl using her fame for good??? Pleez... and remember with your last acquisition... dear Angie.. you promised to stay home with the precious boy for a year?

Maybe you meant that Darling..pathetic..Brad would stay home with him???

Cocoscene! Breaking! Heath Ledger Dead!

Australian actor, hunk and hottie was reportedly found dead in his New York City apartment just moments ago. See links here, here and here, but expect them to be slow.

10 Things I Hate About You, A Knight's Tale.. so many films

He was a great actor, a father and a decent person.

This is simply tragic and incredibly sad. I am at a loss for words.

Coco Scene! Byte of Gossip

Some snipits of coffee conversation for the coco mommy...

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

We are hearing two different stories about the split between Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds..

Rumor #1 says....
The split occurred because Edmonds (formerly married to another R&B singer, Babyface) would not sign a prenup and the relationship ended.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Considering how very cool Ms. Edmonds was during her first divorce... by all accounts, fair to Babyface and devoted to their sons from the marriage...this doesn't seem believeable to us as reason for the break up.

Rumor #2 says...

from canada's Gazette: Here's the deal on Eddie Murphy's quick split from Tracey Edmonds, two weeks after they exchanged vows in Bora Bora on New Year's Day: In Touch Weekly mag says he got mad because Tracey wouldn't take his name.

She was born Tracey McQuarn but has used Edmonds since her first marriage, to R&B singer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. Those two have two sons who use "Edmonds," so Tracey wants to keep that name, too.

She and Murphy were going to have a new ceremony stateside, the Bora Bora one being of dubious legality, but when this issue arose, the whole relationship exploded.

Okay, we know Eddie Murphy... we know Eddie Murphy's ego... rumor #2 makes sense.


Let's talk Cruise Control..

Yes, with that haircut Katie looks as if she is in the neighborhood of 40... but, we concede, she does look like a very good looking 40 year old. Her body is awesome. Her face is gorgeous and her style choices... though a bit too mature for her age... are lovely. Sans the haircut (because who wants to look like 40? Unless of course you are 60!) the darling girl has a style worth emulating ("copying" for those scholastically challenged..).

Darling Kate's comeback movie choice thus far has proven to be flawed. Mad Money??? Distinctively mediocre. With her new look she should consider a Jane Austen flick.

Now for the good stuff... Tom... Scientology... Nicole... image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Morton (from his new unauthorized Tom Cruise bio book) writes: "Those who saw the family close up concluded that Tom was much more comfortable and enthusiastic as a parent. The actor was in constant - and controlling - touch with the youngsters and their nannies no matter how busy he was."

The author also alleges that Nicole would go for days without calling her children when she was away filming on location.

He says: “[It] could be days before she would phone to see how Isabella and Connor were coping.”

In November last, Nicole told U.K.'s GMTV: “My kids don't call me mommy, they don't even call me mom. They call me Nicole, which I hate and tell them off for it."

Meanwhile Katie revealed to Parade magazine: "[Tom’s] first two children are incredible, really smart and kind. They call me 'Mom.' So Tom understands the female bond, and he loves it."

To be called a bad mother! That is something that is completely foreign to the coco mommy...However..For some reason this is believeable to us... Nic did come across as cold and self involved although since their split, seems guenuinely changed. As for the whole Scientology mess... Tom's 9 minutes rant on YouTube... claims he is second in command...bizarreness of his current family...etc..etc.. We say... who really cares? Truly the result is only a good laugh along with an "OMG!" and the knowledge of how close the rest of us are to exceptional normalcy! We think that the bottom line is simply this... Tom's movies have not done very well in recent years... how long before he is no longer a movie star and merely a personality... a "used to be"?

From JESSICA SIMPSON wants to record a country duet with her American football star boyfriend TONY ROMO.
The Texan singer is currently recording her next LP with a country twist, and she has asked the Dallas Cowboys quarterback to join her behind the mic.
A source tells the National Enquirer, "Jessica has been schooled in publicity tricks by her manager dad, Joe, and she knows that a duet with Tony will attract major attention."

Romo isn't exactly popular amongst his own right now... and the way Dallasites view it... Jessica is a bad luck charm...try again poor darling girl.

Coco Scene! Another One Bites the Dust... Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds Split
photo from
From the BBC:
Actor Eddie Murphy says he plans to "remain friends" with film producer Tracey Edmonds, two weeks after they had a "symbolic marriage" ceremony.

Murphy, 46, and Edmonds, 40, exchanged vows on New Year's Day on a private island in the South Pacific, but the celebration was not legally binding.

But reports in the US claim the couple have since split up.

In a statement, the couple said they had decided after "much consideration" not to have a formal ceremony.

They added it was "not necessary to define our relationship further".

But statement did not clarify whether the couple were continuing with their relationship.

'Deep love'

"While the recent symbolic union in Bora Bora was representative of our deep love, friendship and respect that we have for one another on a spiritual level, we have decided to remain friends," the statement said.

Murphy and Edmonds started their romance last year as Murphy argued with Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown's baby girl over the paternity of her baby girl.

The actor later acknowledged Angel Iris Murphy Brown was his daughter after a DNA test in June confirmed he was the father.

This was no real surprise, was it??

We certainly don't blame poor Tracey... being "just friends" is probably a safer route.

Coco Scene! McConaughey to be Daddy

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

From Starpulse:

Matthew McConaughey is set to become a first-time father after announcing on his website that his Brazilian girlfriend, Camilla Alves, is three months pregnant. The hunk, who has previously dated Sandra Bullock and Penelope Cruz, has been dating the model for the past year.

In a post on his website, the proud dad-to-be writes, "My girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together... It's 3 months growin' in her womb and all looks healthy and lively so far."

Ironically, in the new issue of Playboy magazine, McConaughey talks about his parenting plans, stating, "I believe I'll have a family. I want children. The older I get, the more I look forward to being a dad, having some little McConaughey's running around."

But the happy news doesn't mean the actor will wed his pregnant girlfriend.

He says, "I believe in the institution (of marriage), but I don't feel you have to marry. A kid just needs a mom and a dad."

Hmmm...we suppose in Hollywood it is passe' to do the "first comes love, then comes marriage.. then comes a baby in the baby carriage..."

Congratulations Christina!

Coco Scene! Grey's Anatomy ...poor thing!

What we loved:

It was great to see Derek, aka McDreamy, again!

The New Age Healer was fun.

Bailey was awesome.

Love the banter with Dr. Hahn and Dr. Torres. We are beginning to like McSteamy ... as a person - he was funny.

What made us want to say, "Poor thing...":

George, poor thing, is just not such a great guy.

Lay Your Hands On Me

McDreamy, poor thing, seems to have "issues" that makes him so much less ...than. We feel sorry for Rose, his nurse "friend"... it is so hard when your love interest is more attractive than you. Not that any Coco Mommy has ever been in that position.. Poor Rose.

Lexie, poor thing, is no Meredith Grey.

Meredith needs a new love interest to remind Dr. McDreamy she isn't just anybody... poor thing.

In the end... the writer's strike has gotten ridiculous. But, the writing for this season's Grey's Anatomy has been mediocre at best... maybe this break will improve the storylines, and we might actually like Dr. McDreamy again and not just how he looks.

This and That..

Just a few blurbs about this and that.... image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
( (
It is no surprise that TV today is less than tantalizing thanks to the Writers' Guild strike. We wish we could say we sympathize more with them... with all of their separate deals and the whole Jimmy Hoffa-ness of it all... and now with no Golden Globes...what will we do for red carpet fashion directives?!! Let us just say.. a free agent situation would be greatly appreciated. Even though the writers have carved an agreement with David Lettermen... we find Jay Leno to be more entertaining and deserving of our respect.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus lends her support to Writers Guild of America members as they picket Warner Bros. studios in Burbank, Calif., yesterday.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus lends her support to Writers Guild of America members as they picket Warner Bros. studios in Burbank, Calif., November. (gus ruelas/associated press)

In the end, it is simply this... there is one episode left of Grey's Anatomy.. and we have not been very impressed with this season's plot lines...perhaps a flock of new non union writers might be refreshing.

Now for the Battles of Britney... It never ceases to amaze us.. how absolutely awful Lynne Spears is as a parent. Britney's parental units were planning to assure ratings for Dr. Phil's talk show and appear on an upcoming episode to discuss their "dirty laundry". Dr. Phil even showed up at Cedars-Sinai Medical center as Britney was checking out....per her family's request. Now the Spears family is pointing fingers to everyone including Dr. Phil for the train wreck known as the PR from Britney's breakdown... too bad they can't add themselves to the equation. Britney, poor thing, seems to have been raised by dignity challenged parents.

And of course, as if on cue... Dear Britney with new man thing in tow fled to NYC to avoid an impending intervention... geez.. We now feel as if a shower is necessary to wash it all away..

Her Mommy was certainly not Coco!

On to Mr. Blackwell... Posh makes worst dressed along with Jessica Simpson and Lilo... but our Coco Mommy Reese makes best dressed...
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.(Victoria Beckham from

Speaking of Reese... she also wins the poll among popular celebrities as well as the People's Choice award for fav Female Movie Star.

Reese - Said to have had second thoughts (from RTE)

"The actress proved to be the most-liked celebrity among ten women who regularly found their way onto magazine covers and into gossip columns in 2007, according to a poll on Friday.

For its E-Score Celebrity survey, E-Poll Market Research asked more than 1,100 people ages 13 and older whom they found the most appealing, confident, glamorous, interesting and over-exposed, among other qualities." (from Yahoo!)

You go girl!!! The big question is ... are there wedding bells ringing for she and Jake Gyllenhaal?

By the way, just a note... we watched, "Cashmere Mafia"... designer clothes, girlfriends, Lucy Lui - sounded like our kind of show. Until they portrayed a Coco Mommy as well... the enemy. Let us just say... in this situation... a writer's strike is the best thing that could happen to this show. We certainly won't be watching it...

OOOh! One more note: Congrats to the newest Hottie Mommy to be Nicole Kidman! The preganacy is confirmed with a rumored arrival date sometime in July.
We do love her. We hope that she and hubbie Keith Urban have a healthy pregnancy and child!

We have to add one of the comments George Clooney made when he was asked about Nic's baby news: "At least she is older than 16."

On that note we will say: Toodles for now!

Coco Scene! Parenting at it's finest....

Jamie Lynn and Britney....what in the world were they taught at home? Now, neither one is employable. Looks as if Jamie Lynn's show on Nickelodeon "Zoey 101" has been ... hmmm how should be put it???.... permanently retired due to unforeseen circumstances or due to the anticipated arrival of the sixteen year old's love child. How... trailer park. Really...


***PS... Nickelodeon seems to be changing their tune - Now - in their moral wisdom - the program spokesman, Dan Martinsen has now told MTV, "We have not made any change to our schedule." Zoey 101's final season is to air in February.

We wonder if Jamie Lynn will be showing just in time for the show's finale??? We knew there was more than just commercials that kept us from letting our darling children watch the Nickelodeon channel...

Toodles again!
