It only took him five months, but British actor Jude Law has
finally laid eyes on his newest bundle of joy – daughter Sophia, the result of a
week-long fling with New York cocktail waitress Samantha Burke. Jude, along with his lawyers, hopped on
a plane last weekend and made the trip to Miami, Florida, to meet his baby girl.
Jude talked shop with celebrity lawyer Maurice Kutner for
six hours before the meeting, and it’s been said that he and Samantha were able to come to an
agreement about raising Sophia before all was said and done.
Sounds less like a first-time father moment and more like a business
meeting, if you ask me.
Since his now-infamous sex scandal exploded on the scene
late last year, Tiger Woods has done his best to keep out of the public eye. The
fallen golf great finally broke his silence last week, when he stood before a group of
friends, colleagues and close associates to apologize, once again, for his transgressions.
During his apology he asked the media to back off of his family,
specifically his wife and two young children. "My behavior doesn't make it
right for the media to follow my two-and-a-half year-old-daughter to school and
report the school's location," his statement read. "They staked out
my wife and they pursued my mom. Whatever my wrongdoings, for the sake of my
family... please leave my wife and kids alone.”
I freely admit it: I am one of those people who usually feels a teeny bit smug - I told you so! - when news of failing celebrity marriages hits the gossip wires. I mean, how many successful marriages are there in Hollywood, anyway? And aren't they all having affairs? Cue wagging finger.
So you would think that I'd be all schadenfreudey about the news - and you know that it's probably true - that Brad and Angelina are splitting up, but I'm not. They have all those kids. They're a family. Families breaking up sucks.
John Edwards has finally admitted what everybody already knew: that he really is the father of Rielle Hunter's baby, Frances Quinn. Which is great and all, but really, it would be better if he'd man up and admit that denying his baby in the first place was really kind of vile.
Wow, I'm all about judgment this week at The Bad Moms Club. First it was Crafts! With Placenta!Now it's Tom Cruise! Indulgence to the Extreme! I know I shouldn't judge, I don't want to judge, but OMFG, I can't help but judge.
I know that the BMC credo is resist judging all ye who enter here, but as I think I've amply demonstrated, I tend to not resist it so much when faced with evil and/or stupidity. Richard Heene, I think, embodies both.
So. Let's talk about the golf-club wielding elephant in the corner.
Whenever I go to get my gossip fix, all I see is Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods, Tiiiiiiiigerrrrrrr Wooooods. Can I just say that I'm kind of shocked at the whole thing? Regardless of how much of the gossip is true (less than 50% is my guess), it's still amazing that so much is being said about - what? - a golfer.
Seriously. Before last week, the guy was about exciting as the wood paneling in my parent's rec room.
