No, this post isn't about Obama. Some quickies:
• Consider the source but this is creepy:
HAVING a baby without nasty stretch marks is all the rage among rich socialites. Last week, Alex Kuczynski, 40, announced she and her billionaire hubby, Charles Stevenson, were giving birth using her egg, his sperm and another woman's uterus. Now comes word that social swan/Vogue editrix Lauren Davis , 31, wants to rent a womb as well. Davis, who just married Colombian billion-heir Andres Santo Domingo, told friends she's looking for a "gestational carrier." That takes care of those pesky stretch marks, morning sickness and labor pains!
Doesn't that bring to mind Margaret Atwood's novel The Handmaid's Tale?
• Comedian Kathy Griffin says she's been banned from The View because of remarks she made about Barbara Walters. But her observations are usually right on target, including this recent quote:
"MY favorite targets are celebrities without a sense of humor who think everything they say is interesting, those who lose complete per spective, and by that I mean Oprah."
• Maybe she was joking but Paula Abdul [said]: "THERE'S a Starbucks in my OB-GYN's office. You can get a latte and a Pap smear at the same time."
• Re Britney: The allegations related to the restraining order that's supposed to keep Britney's "manager" Sam Lutfi away from her are a little kooky. But they're consistent with what his previous victims say he did to them. You can read the details here.
• From actress Julianne Moore:
"I still battle with my deeply boring diet of, essentially, yogurt and breakfast cereal and granola bars. I hate dieting. I hate having to do it to be the 'right' size. I’m hungry all the time ... I think I’m a slender person, but the industry apparently doesn’t ... All actresses are hungry all the time, I think."
Perez says, "Maybe that's why so many of them are so crazy!"
• Hypocrisy at it's best: According to his ex-wife guy who's running for committeeman in Chicago on a family values ticket is a deadbeat dad. He owes $82,000 in back child support for the last 14 years.
• Voters in Wisconsin were disappointed when they lined up to vote on Super Tuesday. Their primary isn't until Feb. 19th. At least they're better off than the people who tried to vote in Florida on Tuesday - their primary was last week.
• And finally, the BBC issued an apology after the hosts of a gardening program talked about a species of rhododendron also known as "the black man's willy." One of the horticulturalists said:
"I've never seen one in my life. They don't really like the cold, as you can imagine. They shrivel up and look very unhappy."
There's a good picture at the link.
Turn ons: Kathy Griffin
