Happy family alert:
The BrAngelina twins out in public in Italy


Publications: OK!, Weekly Life & Style
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

While this picture is old, you can tell because Brad has no beard, two different tabloids have stories that focus on the twins Knox and Vivienne, both of whom were sighted on the family's recent trip to Italy.

Love Bird Alert™:
Brad and Angie back in love

Publication: Star magazine
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

The tabloids couldn't stay away from Brad and Angie for long, and there were several stories this week that went along with pictures of the entire Pitt-Jolie clan being seen in Italy. This evening's installment are the happy stories, with one less flattering tale told tomorrow morning.

Love Bird Alert™:
Kourtney and Scott tell their side

Publication: Us Weekly
Date: 8 March 2010

Kourtney and Scott talked to Us Weekly to tell their side of the story, which means they want you to forget about all the other stuff you've read and the several incidents of douchebaggery that Scott committed on camera on their reality TV show. This is true love, and as we know, the course of true love never did run smooth.

On the rocks alert:
Kourtney and Scott are faking it

Publication: In Touch
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend Scott Disick are denying the rumors about their imminent break-up, but In Touch wants us to know that they are lying and faking it.

The more you read the tabloids, the more you get used to completely contradictory stories being reported simultaneously.

Leaving the Love Boat™:
Jenny Sanford granted a divorce from Gov. Mark Sanford

Publication: McClatchy Newspaper (The State, South Carolina)
Date: 26 Feb. 2010

As should come as a surprise to no one, Jenny Sanford has been granted a divorce on the grounds that her husband was unfaithful.

You know, her husband the governor who couldn't stop FREAKING BLABBING ABOUT THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE IN ARGENTINA!

The National Enquirer is being talked up for a Pulitzer for the work done exposing John Edwards' sordid life, but all ten of the tabs were completely shut out of this ridiculous example of true love spoiled by two inconvenient prior commitments.

Because of the adultery, the divorce won't be final for about two weeks, but it's just a formality.

Love Bird Alert™:
Nicole Richie's Big Day

Publication: Weekly Life & Style
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

Now that she's announced her upcoming wedding on TV, Nicole Richie is talking to at least one tabloid, Weekly Life & Style, and they put the story on the front page.

Wishing the happy couple all the best.

Enboobening Alert™:
Kendra gets work done after giving birth

Publication: In Touch
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

Two weeks ago, Kendra Wilkinson Baskett was on the cover of OK! in a bikini showing off her post baby body. Last week, it was rumored she was pregnant yet again in OK! and Weekly Life & Style. This week, In Touch tells us that Hugh Hefner's former gal pal has had a boob job after giving birth for the first time this past December.

Personal aside to Kendra, should she wander by. I can understand that you look upon your lovely lady humps as a remarkably successful investment portfolio, but just in case you slept through biology class, honey, here's a little tip. The primary function of them is to feed babies. You know, like that little stranger who showed up at your place just before Christmas?

Just sayin'.

Love Bird Alert™:
Evan Lysachek and Nastia Liukin


Publication: Weekly Life & Style
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

I expect your first two questions are:
1) Who are these people?
2) What's up with that dress?

She's Nastia Liukin, 21, Russian born gymnast who competes for the good old U.S. of A., winning the all-around Olympic gold medal in 2008. He is Evan Lysachek, 24, born and raised in the Land of Lincoln, and he just won the gold medal in figure skating at the 2010 Olympics. Yes, a heterosexual male American figure skating champion. It makes you want to buy a copy of the Sun and check out their list of signs for The End Times, doesn't it?

As for the dress, your guess is as good as mine.

Demon Drugs Alert™:
Tiger is an addict

Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

So The Flagship wants us to know that the whole "sex rehab" is just a front for "regular rehab" and Tiger Woods, America's most hated athlete who never actually killed anybody, is a hophead as well as a coozehound.

More Tiger unpleasantness later this week.

Mending fences alert:
Angelina Jolie and creepy dad Jon Voight


Publications: Star, Us Weekly
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

The whole Jolie-Pitt brood was in Italy this week, and two different publications say Angelina Jolie was seen with her father, creepy arch-conservative Jon Voight. The two have been estranged, but they appear to have mended fences. I think this may have to do with Angelina trying to become a secular saint.

Both Star and Us Weekly have pictures, but Us claims to having an exclusive interview. This picture is from 2001. She looks about the same, he looks a lot creepier now.


Canonization alert:
Jacko, Di and Elvis to become saints


Publication: Weekly World News (via the Sun)
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

If we are to believe the Weekly World News, (and what person of faith doesn't?) the Church (denomination unspecified on the cover) will soon make saints of Michael Jackson, Princess Diana Spencer and Elvis Presley.

With all due respect to my pal Padre Mickey, the line-up of saints as it currently stands is boring and the Church will wither unless it adds some zazz.

I mean seriously, Cyril and Methodius? St. Scholastica? A feast day for the Martyrs of Japan?

These people were never even on TV. They were so broke ass, I bet none of them even owned a TV! How can you expect a modern audience to get behind stuff like this?

God bless St. Jacko, St. Di and St. Elvis, and bless us all in their holy names and holy blood.

And most especially, God bless the Weekly World News. As soon as the editors realize that no one wants to hear any more about the World's Fattest Cat, they will go back to being the absolute best of The Only Ten Magazines That Matter.

On the rocks alert:
Michelle Obama insanely jealous of Oprah

Publication: Globe
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

So far this year, the Globe has gone after the Obamas about once a month. If you think about it, roughly half the electorate didn't vote for Obama (47% to be more accurate), and only 130 million people bothered to vote, which leaves 170 million either too young or too bored to cast a ballot. So there's your market for people who want to read trash about the Prez and the First Lady.

Haters gonna hate.

Michelle is insanely jealous of Oprah. "She's not your wife, I am!" she allegedly screamed at Barack.

Seriously, are we supposed to think Michelle isn't clued in to the fact that Oprah's life is a BIG GAY LIE?

Skeeter Davis Alert™:
Add these dates to your apocalypse calendar

Publication: Sun
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

For three weeks running, the Sun lets us in on the end of the world, and just in time because the first sign is like five weeks away.

3 April 2010: The first of twelve startling omens!
7 June 2010: NASA radio telescope gets a stern warning from God!
11 September 2010: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are seen in Rome!

All I can say is... looks like a good time to make a major purchase on the installment plan.

Love Bird Alert™:
Barbara Walters moves in with her boyfriend


Publication: National Examiner
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

More data supporting the idea that the Examiner is the tabloid for very old people. They want you to know that the brazen hussy Barbara Walters is moving in with her boyfriend.

Personally, I think Ms. Walters is just striking a blow for the sanctity of marriage. Since we know that marriage is for procreation and not recreation and Old Babs is now 80, letting her get married is effectively as bad as letting gay people marry, and we know that just isn't done, right?

Good on ya, Babs, you slutty old geezer!

Man Slut Alert™:
Matthew Fox cheating with tattooed stripper

Publications: National Enquirer, In Touch
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

This story is perfect for lead-off this week, as it will be on the top of the blog until this afternoon's update.

First we have Matthew Fox as the target. This is the last season of Lost, and who knows what the rest of career will look like? Maybe he'll get lucky like John Corbett from Northern Exposure and get plenty more work. Maybe it will be a Milk Carton for him, like WKRP in Cincinnati was for Gary Sandy.

So the Flagship puts him on the front cover. He's cheating on his wife with a stripper. That's a story we've heard many times before, right?

He's cheating on his wife with a TATTOOED stripper.

This little detail makes the story many times better. As a mathematician, I would estimate that tattooed strippers are approximately a jillion times more interesting than non-tattooed strippers.

Stay classy, National Enquirer!

And a late update. In Touch has the same story and their source is... the aforementioned tattooed stripper.

It just gets better and better, doesn't it?

And the camera noses in to the tears on her face:
Is fame hurting Susan Boyle?

Publication: People
Date: 8 Mar. 2010

Is there anything worse than the tabloids? Well, there's Fox News Channel.

On Fox, instead of stating something controversial, they will put it in the form of a question.

"Is Obama a socialist?"

"Is global warming a hoax?"

"Should we kill all liberals and sell their organs for transplants?"

Not saying yes or no, just putting the question out there. But notice how often these questions are put in the form where the answer they want you to believe is "yes".

So People, the Gold Standard, the kindest of the supermarket rags, is asking us to consider that Susan Boyle might not be up to being famous.

Could anyone with a lick of sense see this coming?

Not saying it myself, just putting the question out there.

Love Bird Alert™:
What Robert is hiding from Kristen


Publication: OK!
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Here's our first tabloid headline about the stars of Twilight for 2010. Robert is hiding something from Kristen.

Ooooh, I'm so excited! What could it be? If this picture is any indication, he may be ready to tell her that he's finally learned how to tie his shoelaces ALL BY HIMSELF!

The increased esteem she will feel for him will quickly translate to hot monkey sex.

Good on ya, Rob!

On the rocks alert:
Paula Deen's bitter divorce shocker!


Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

It's Wednesday afternoon, so it's time for the last stories from this week's tabloid headlines before tomorrow's new trash. The Flagship wants us to know that celebrity chef is going through a divorce and her husband cheated on her.

We may not have wanted to know, but there you go. Now we know.

UPDATE: No divorce. The story was that early in her new marriage, she and the tugboat captain's daughter didn't get along and the daughter wanted her dad to dump Paula, but all that's been settled now.

So many people were coming to this website to find out about this, I thought I'd give a little more detail by looking at the Enquirer online.

Ugly duckling alert:
Demi Moore had no fashion sense as a kid


Publication: Weekly Life & Style
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

The tabloid week winds down and this Wednesday has some cold leftovers. Weekly Life & Style asks us to guess what star took this unflattering picture when she was a kid.

You don't have to guess. It's Demi Moore. Glad to be of service.

Setting the record straight:
The Alec Baldwin hospitalization

Publication: People
Date: 1 March 2010

People talks to the people involved and gets to the bottom of the Alec Baldwin hospitalization story first reported two weeks ago yesterday.

Not Long 4 This World Alert:
Bill Clinton needs a heart transplant

Publication: Globe
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

The Globe, that completely reliable source that reported the Bushes and the Obamas are both close to divorce, tells us Bill Clinton is close to death. The stents he had inserted are not enough and he needs a heart transplant.

This is also the tabloid that told us this week Portia De Rossi has a deadly disease, but didn't think we'd know her name, so instead called her "Ellen's wife".



Angelina Jolie In Haiti


Publication: People
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

I don't know exactly how the tabloids work, but this story looks like a quid pro quo. BrAngelina went to People to start their offensive against the other magazines, dispelling the rumors of a break-up and granting access, something they rarely do. This story about Angelina in Haiti looks like the magazine returning the favor and reporting on something positive Angelina wanted to get publicity for.

By the way, the picture is from 2006, when the couple visited Haiti with Wyclef Jean, seen here at the right. You can tell because Brad has no scraggly beard.

Love Bird Alert™?
Brad gets Jen an "intimate gift" for her birthday

Publication: Weekly Life & Style
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

It's Tuesday morning, nearly the end of the tabloid week, and here are two names that haven't shown up in the headlines yet: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. There are only two stories concerning them in the tabs this week. If there was a question whether their lawsuit against the British tabs would have a chilling effect on the American rags, the early indicators point to yes.

This story is the closest thing to a "trouble in Paradise" tale for BrAngelina this week. Brad allegedly got Jennifer Aniston an "intimate gift" for her 41st birthday. You know, "intimate" as in "I hope you enjoy this intimate gift and I also hope we both will enjoy the hot monkey sex you must now offer me in exchange."

They Fought The Law Alert™:
Kids of celebrities are no damn good!


Publication: National Examiner
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

The Examiner wants you to know that celebrities make bad parents. Among the celebrities mentioned are Michael Douglas from Wall Street, Priscilla Presley of Naked Gun fame, Moonlighting star Cybill Shepard and star of Lethal Weapon Mel Gibson. I bring up these works from the late 1980s because that's the last time you could actually call all these people "celebrities".

Granted, Mel Gibson is just as famous now as he was back then, but young people might not be aware that he used to be an actor and not just a mouthy anti-Semitic drunk who calls cops "Sugar Tits".

So much information gets lost along the way, even with the Internets to help.

Damn You Fat Repeat™:
Kevin Smith on the Southwest flight


Publication: People
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

This is a repeat of a story taken from People online last week which made the cover of the magazine this week.

Demon Drugs Alert™:
Kristin Cavallari in rehab?

Publication: Us Weekly
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Kristin Cavallari, like Heidi Montag, is one of those folks who first came to the public's attention on some MTV show about beautiful young people. Instead of going nuts with plastic surgery like Heidi, Us Weekly insinuates that Ms. Cavallari may be going nuts with controlled substances instead. Note the question mark at the end of the title.

Is there California drug rehab in Ms. Cavallari's future?

Stay classy, Us Weekly!



Demon Rum Alert™:
Mariah Carey in rehab?


Publication: Star
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

This Monday morning, the theme here at It's News 2 Them™ is cute girls in rehab. The Star says pop star Mariah Carey is headed there.

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Love Bird Alert™:
Kourtney and Scott still together


Publication: People (online)
Date: 20 Feb. 2010

While the earlier reports have the advantage of being what all her fans seem to want, this report from People has the advantage of actually getting a quote from Kourtney Kardashian herself. She says everything's fine and she and Scott are very happy raising the baby.

Kinda makes your head hurt a little bit, doesn't it?

On the rocks alert:
Kourtney is a single mom

Publication: Star
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

According to Star, Kourtney and baby daddy Scott are through. He's out the door and she's getting on with her life somehow, raising her baby with only her loving family and large fortune to lean on.

On the rocks alert:
Kourtney's scummy boyfriend

Publication: In Touch
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Yet another report that Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy Scott Disick is a scumbag. I don't watch their reality TV show, partly because I don't have cable right now and partly because I don't watch reality TV in any case, but blog buddy Karen Zipdrive who does watch says that the premise "Scott Disick is a scumbag" is as self-evident as "water is wet" or "a ton of bricks is heavy".

Captain Phil Harris didn't have to die.

Publication: Globe
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

The Globe wants us to know that Captain Phil Harris, star of the reality show The Deadliest Catch, didn't have to die. He died from complications after a massive stroke last month. He was 53.

Compare this to the tragedy of Vanna White, who tragically just turned 53 and was photographed wearing very little make-up.

One of these stories is tragic. I'll let you decide which one.

Time travel non-paradox:
Vanna White is getting older

Publication: National Examiner
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

In a week when Roger Ebert allowed people to see what he looks like without a jaw, the National Examiner wants us to think that a picture of Vanna White wearing little to no make-up is a tragedy.

For the record, Ms. White turned 53 on Thursday, and anyone her age who looks that good without make-up is WAY ahead of the game.

We are all getting older. What a tragedy.

Bun In The Oven Alert™:
Kendra Wilkinson


Publications: OK!, Weekly Life & Style
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Last week, Kendra Wilkinson (a.k.a. Mrs. Hank Baskett) was on the cover of a magazine bragging about how quickly she got her figure back. Now, two different tabloids say she is bragging about how quickly she has gotten pregnant again. Her first child is barely two months old.

I'm reporting on a lot of stuff from the tabloids, but at least this story is within the original scope of the blog, in that it is confirmable or falsifiable. My mission is to keep track of this stuff.

On the rocks alert:
Elin tells Tiger he's "pathetic"

Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

The Flagship published this report before Tiger gave his "I've been a bad, bad Buddhist" statement on Friday, and they have a source that says Elin called her estranged husband "pathetic".

Looking up the precise definition, "pathetic" should mean inciting pity or a mix of scorn and pity. I'm seeing very little pity for Tiger so far.

Hairdresser Alert™:
Jim Bakker accused by male employee


Publication: National Examiner
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

As I wrote over on Lotsa 'Splainin' 2 Do, the Examiner is partying this week like it's 1989. Everybody on the cover was famous 20+ years ago, and most of them much more famous then than now. The exception would be Mel Gibson, but back then Mel was more famous as the first Sexiest Man Alive on a People magazine cover, not as the anti-Semitic drunk who called a female cop "Sugar Tits".

Jim Bakker, the weasel who let Tammy Fae slip away, is accused of homosexual advances by an employee. But let's think about this. Would a man who is gay marry a woman who looks like a drag queen?

Okay, that may be the wrong question. Let me think about this some more and get back to you.

By the way, the picture above is from the cover of his book I Was Wrong. (I added the "and I'm gay." part.) What he was repenting is prosperity theology, the idea that God wants you to be filthy rich, also propounded by the late Reverend Ike and Benny Hinn, a current day weasel celebrity preacher going through a divorce that might help sell magazines to people alive and awake in the year of Our Lord 2010.

Fussin' and Feudin' Alert™:
Jessica Simpson sick of mouthy man slut John Mayer

Publications: OK!, Us Weekly
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Earlier this week, Both Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson were pissed off at mouthy man slut John Mayer, but today we focus on the magazines that could only get vaguely sourced quotes from Jessica.

Obviously, Ms. Simpson has missed the point that in man slut-ese, being compared to napalm and crack cocaine are compliments. Jeez, Jess, lighten up, will ya? You had to have some idea who this guy was when you had sex with him.



He Fought The Law Alert™:
Sean Penn hits yet another paparazzo


Publication: Associated Press
Date: 19 Feb. 2010

Initiating physical violence against another human being is a horrible thing. Of course, I say this with such absolute authority because I've never had to deal with the paparazzi.

Sean Penn is the latest in a series of celebrities who got fed up and took a swipe at a photographer. If convicted, he could get 18 months in jail.

He Fought The Law Alert™:
Brian Bonsall violates terms of release


Publication: Boulder Daily Camera
Date: 19 Feb. 2010

Yet another example of the tabloids publishing once a week and celebrities being stupid 24/7. Brian Bonsall, cute kid actor who played the youngest on Family Ties, was arrested in Boulder on marijuana possession, violating the terms of his release. While I don't consider marijuana possession much of a crime, his earlier arrests were for drunk driving and domestic abuse, so this is not just the case of some quiet herbalist being rousted unfairly by the man.

It's tempting to stereotype all former kid actors as criminals, but to be fair, the rest of the Keaton clan is rap sheet free.

(Indirect) Not Long 4 This World Alert: Bill Clinton


Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

The Flagship tells us that Chelsea is racing to get married because she wants her happy day to happen before her dad's funeral.

Stay classy, Enquirer! Don't let that Pulitzer nomination go to your head.



(Indirect) Not Long 4 This World Alert: Portia De Rossi


Publication: Globe
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

This week a new sub-category arrives, the Indirect Not Long 4 This World alert. The Globe tells us that Ellen DeGeneres is shattered because the woman she married is gravely ill. Besides reminding folks who are paying extremely little attention that Ellen is gay, the Globe is saying that Portia De Rossi is not well enough known to get her own headline. How "famous enough for a headline" is defined by the tabloids is anybody's guess.

In any case, the actress who was a regular on Ally McBeal, Arrested Development, Nip/Tuck and Better Off Ted is now just "Ellen DeGeneres' unnamed wife", and the tabs think her illness is very serious.

On the rocks alert:
Elin's painful choice


Publication: People
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

People has Elin Nordegren on the cover, and the headline makes it sound like she hasn't made up her mind whether or not to take Tiger Woods back. I thought it made sense to publish this before today's big public statement without a question and answer session.

There is only one other Tiger-Elin headline this week, which will be posted here on Saturday.


On the rocks alert:
Lady Gaga is a homewrecker


Publication: Star magazine
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Star magazine sees fit to tell us that Lady Gaga, the new pop princess known for her odd fashion-forward outfits, has a new boyfriend and that boyfriend has a wife and at least one kid.

Oh, shameless harlot!


Lady Gaga is sometimes compared to the young Madonna because of her constantly changing style. For me, she's more like Bubble from Absolutely Fabulous, the astoundingly stupid girl played by the brilliant Jane Horrocks. Both Bubble and Lady Gaga are like experiments in how ridiculous an outfit can be before you forget that a really cute young woman is wearing it.

Skeeter Davis Alert™: End Times to begin 9/11/2010

Publication: Sun
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Once again, the Sun sucks it up and puts out a headline this blog can actually use. After I chided them about being too vague and useless, they are starting to put ACTUAL DATES on their end of the world prophecies.

Mark your calendars for Sept. 11, 2010, because God's got some new tenants looking around and it's easier to close the deal on an unoccupied property.

I wonder how they picked that date? Is it really easy for rubes to remember?

This would be a good time to point out that my close personal bud Padre Mickey did a thesis on tabloid eschatology. If you are out there, Padre, how common was it for them to give an exact date?


Fussin' and Feudin' Alert™: Jess and Jen both sick of mouthy man slut John Meyer


Publications: Star, Weekly Life & Style
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

If you've read any of the interview quotes from John Mayer this week, you have to assume he was lit like a Christmas tree when he was talking, because he said about six or seven things that could easily be in the running for Douchebag Quote of the Decade. Both Star magazine and Weekly Life & Style say that his most famous former girlfriends, Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson, both want bloody revenge, probably involving some sort of automated gelding device.

Later this week, two more stories like this, but only one righteously indignant ex-girl friend.

Bun In The Oven Alert™?
Baby Boy for Oprah and Gayle

Publication: Globe
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Before starting this blog, I thought the tabloids were obsessed with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, but what I see now is that after BrAngelina and Jennifer Aniston, the next most interesting celebrity to the tabs is Oprah, though Tiger Woods and his troubles have been flavor of the month for several months now. The Globe says that Oprah is going to have a baby boy and she and gal pal Gayle King will raise him and he will be her heir.

The headline does not make it clear where this golden child will come from. While I understand that Oprah is the most wonderful thing in human history, she is 56 years old and Gayle is 55, both probably post-menopausal, which is the reason for the question mark after the Bun In The Oven Alert™.

To the tabloids, Oprah is Elizabeth I of England, the Virgin Queen. The most fascinating unanswered question is who will follow her and get her fabulous fortune when she is gone. The second most fascinating question is if her fleet will be able to defeat the Spanish Armada when war inevitably comes.

Not Long 4 This World:
Whitney Houston dying


Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

When I started this blog, the idea was to keep track of verifiable stuff, like divorces and deaths, but the tabloids are so damned entertaining, I publish most of the celebrity stuff they put on their covers. (I currently draw the line at the reality show The Bachelor. I hate that crap and those people don't count as celebrities to me.)

But to start this new week, the Flagship puts a story front and center that is in keeping with this blog's original intent. They say Whitney Houston is dying and drugs and booze are the cause.

The tabloids got a lot of credit for having a cover saying Michael Jackson had six months to live. The original point of this blog was that they say that about a lot of people, and it doesn't always come true. This week, Whitney gets added to the official 2010 list.

Love Bird Alert™:
One more baby for BrAngelina to save their marriage


Publication: Weekly Life & Style
Date: 22 Feb. 2010

The last story of the week is BrAngelina, the tabloids favorite obsession in the winter of 2010. Weekly Life & Style has switched over to the "they are still together" camp, but they put the worst possible spin on it. According to them, the couple is going to have one more baby in hopes of making it work. Whether this means Angelina is pregnant or they are back on the adoption market, the cover didn't say, and you know how I feel about reading the stories.



Sandra Bullock baby tragedy - UPDATED


Publication: Globe
Date: 22 Feb. 2010

That's all the information in the teaser on the cover, and I don't open these things up to find out more, especially the Globe. So far, the Globe and the Examiner are running neck and neck for the top spot when it comes to nasty stories.

If you are looking for information about the baby Sandra Bullock adopted, go to this post instead.



Bad Dog Alert™:
Rachel Ray has a mean pit bull


Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 22 Feb. 2010

Here are Rachel and her dog. Nice looking doggie, but apparently does not play well with others. Bit off the ear of another dog. Not the first time, either.

Not every pit bull is vicious, but the breed does not have a bad rep for nothing.
