Sick of Jon and Kate

Okay, so, I have written about Jon and Kate Gosselin in the past and here I go again, right? But wait, this is a different type of post. This is an "I'm sick of them" post. When are we going to start talking about something else in the media or maybe about real celebrities?

Jon and Kate say that they don't do it for the publicity but Kate goes on Larry King Live and on the cover of People, while Jon schmoozes with the paparazzi and talks to them about his life and relationships, or whatever he calls them.

I just wish they would really take their kids into account like they keep saying they do. This is a terrible time for them and they shouldn't be going on television interviews or talking to the paparazzi. I'm so sick of both of them and their immaturity.

It's so frustrating. Any thoughts from you all?

Not a Very Interesting Week

So it doesn't seem like too many interesting things have been going on in the celebrity world this week: Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush were spotted together at a steakhouse in New Orleans, although her reps wouldn't comment on why they were together; it was officially stated that Michale Jackson will be buried on August 29, his 50th birthday; a pregnant Kourtney Kardashian wishes her dad was alive to see his first grandchild; a nude video of Eric Dane is being "investigated" by police; and Renée Zellweger went bonkers on The Jay Leno Show and beat up a piñata.

That's pretty much the bulk of it. I wish I had a long juicy story for you guys, but this is it for now. I'm sure though, that our celebrities won't let us down and will provide more drama for us to discuss next week. Have a nice weekend everyone!

New Baby Coming Soon for Celine and René Angélil

Yes, that's right. Celine and her hubbie, 67 year-old René Angélil, just found out on Monday that they are expecting their second child.

Celine had previously emphasized her desire to have more children many times over, but a hectic Las Vegas schedule made it nearly impossible, until now. She herself comes from a family of 14 children! No that's not a typo, 14, as in ten plus four.

The couple had assistance from a team of fertility doctors who made it possible for them to conceive again.

Their first child, also conceived with some help from the same feritility doctor, Dr. Zev Rosenwaks, is René Charles, born in January of 2001.

The singer, 41, decided to stop touring in March to concentrate on becoming a mother again. Now the birth of their second child could force a postponement of her return to Las Vegas in the fall of 2010.

Congrats to Celine. Not sure if I could ever be with a 67 year old guy, but more power to ya if you're happy.

Lasting Celebrity Couples, Day 5 of 5

The final lasting celebrity couple for this week is...Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne.

Here is one of the couples that you just either completely love or completely hate. There usually is no in between.

The facts though, cannot be argued. They have made their marriage work since 1982. Much longer than any of the other couples showcased this week.

A little history...
Sharon and Ozzy met when she was 17 and he was 21 in 1979. Her father, Don Arden, managed the band Black Sabbath, in which Ozzy was the front man. However, Ozzy was soon fired from the band and replaced by another lead singer.

Sharon, who was ruthless and hardworking, became his manager and they started dating shortly after. Her tough management style paved the way for a successful solo career for Ozzy.

On July 4, 1982, they were married on a beach in Hawaii.

The couple has three children, Aimee, born in 1983, Kelly, born in 1984, and Jack, born in 1985.

We all got to see a glimpse into the lives of this bizarre yet caring family on the MTv reality show, "The Osbournes," in which the entire family participated except for the oldest daughter, Aimee. The show premiered in March of 2002 as an instant success. Its final expisode aired on March of 2005.

Through all of the yelling and name-calling on the show, a love and support of one another was always present. Sharon and Ozzy really do love each other. If you never got to see the show, you might be thinking that I'm crazy. I'd suggest you watch an episode or two. I think you might be pleasantly surprised at how much this family actually cares about one another.

A loving quote from Ozzy about his wife who battled colon caner: "She's not allowed to die before me. I couldn't live without her."

Kim Kardashian to Be an Aunt!

It has been confirmed that Kourtney Kardashian (30), Kim's older sister, is having a baby due in December.

As of right now, the father has not been confirmed, but reports are circulating that it is Scott Disick, Kourtney's on again off again boyfriend.

The two previously split in January but have been spotted together lately. They even made a trip to the Hamptons together in July.

Reports on indicate that Kris (Kourtney's mother) is very excited.

No word on how this is going to affect the new show "Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami," a spin-off of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," which is to premiere this coming Sunday on E!.

Lasting Celebrity Couples, Day 4 of 5

Our 4th couple is…Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

Rita and Tom met in 1980 on the set of “Bossom Buddies,” where Tom had a starring role and Rita had a guest role. Although the attraction was there, they didn’t begin a relationship until they reunited for the movie “Volunteers,” in 1985.

Tom, who was unhappily married with two children at the time, claimed that they were falling in love on the set of the movie.

In 1987 Tom divorced his wife and married Rita in 1988 at her church and even converted from Catholicism to Rita’s religion, Eastern Orthodox Christianity, to do so.

The couple has two children together, Chester Marlon, born in 1990, and Truman Theodore born in 1995.

So, what has kept them going strong for over 20 years?

Rita: “We always make each other laugh, have honest communication, and I never take him for granted.”

Tom: “My secret to a happy marriage is just being married to the right woman. I got lucky with the wonderful Rita Wilson. I’m the luckiest man alive.”

Awww, Tom, you are so sweet!

Lasting Celebrity Couples, Day 3 of 5

Today’s couple is Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Even those who detest country music can appreciate this loving couple.

They first met when Faith became the opening act for Tim on the Spontaneous Combustion Tour back in 1996. Shortly after, Tim proposed right before a performance. Faith didn’t even have time to respond. She wrote her answer on a mirror for Tim to see afterwards.

The wedding took place on October 6, 1996 in Rayville, Louisiana, soon after the tour was over. It was a simple, but elegant, ceremony and took place at Tim’s aunt’s house. Faith wore a designer dress in her barefeet.
So what keeps this spark that they have going, you ask? Their secret is a simple rule: they will not spend more than 3 days apart. A rule that demonstrates how committed they are to their family and to eachother. They have been on 3 tours together. They plan their tours around their children’s school schedules and bring their kids on tour with them. I guess the family that tours together, stays together.

Tim and Faith have 3 children, Gracie, born in May of 1997, Maggie, born in August of 1998, and Audrey, born in December of 2001.

Lasting Celebrity Couples, Day 2 of 5

Today’s couple is…Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. They are a true Hollywood power couple. They have both played roles in many successful films, way too many to list, and have also had success with singing, producing, and directing.

The couple first met in 1995 when Jada auditioned for a role in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” in which Will played the lead role and where he first captured our hearts with his acting. He played a rebellious but good-hearted teenager living with his rich aunt and uncle, three cousins, and a butler, who he nick-named, “G.” Unfortunately, Jada did not get the part because she was, “too short.”

Will proposed to Jada in November of 1997, and on December 31st of that same year, they were married in Baltimore at the Cloisters Mansion.

The couple have two children together, Jaden Christopher Syre Smith, born July 8, 1998, and Willow Camille Reign Smith, born October 31, 2000. Jaden Smith played alongside his father in “The Pursuit of Happiness.”

Will also has Trey Smith, born in 1992, from Will’s previous marriage to Sheree Zampino.
Fun facts: Will turned down a scholarship to M.I.T. to pursue his dreams of acting and rapping, and Jada was Miss Maryland 1988. Cool huh?

Lasting Celebrity Couples, Day 1 of 5

So, we always here about celebrity couples breaking up, going through bitter divorces, custody battles, so on and so forth; but nobody ever talks about those celebrity couples who have lasted. It’s time for us to be a little more positive and start looking at the bright side of things.

Contrary to popular belief, celebrity couples can make it work. They just need some extra determination and lots of love. I am a firm believer that love will conquer all, it just needs to be strong enough to.

Each day this week, I will list, in order from most recent to longest marriage, a celebrity couple that has been together through thick and thin, for at least 5 years.

Today’s couple is Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze, Jr. Married since 2002, this couple made us all simultaneously say, “Awww, they’re so cute,” everytime we saw them together.

The couple first met in 1997, and after 5 years of dating, tied the knot in September of 2002, in a beautiful ceremony in Mexico. It was a 4-day affair with 60 of their closest friends and family.

If rain on your wedding day is good luck, these two are for sure going to have a lifetime of happiness. They got married through Hurrican Hernan and then suffered through a 4.6 earthquake that took place the next day. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Now, the couple is expecting their first child in the fall. Doesn’t Sarah Michelle make a cute pregnant woman? I wonder if she’s been called “Prego” yet?

Thanks to The Tooth Fairy for the idea for this article.

Writer/Director John Hughes Dies at 59

It is with extreme sadness that I write this news. John Hughes, the writer/director for many 80s films, such as Pretty In Pink, 16 Candles, and The Breakfast Club has passed away at age 59 unexpectedly. He was taking a walk while visiting his family in Manhattan when he died.

Hughes also wrote the movie Home Alone.

I am very sad that the world has lost this extreme talent. I am an extreme fan of 16 Candles and even have it on DVD.

The Breakfast Club is a movie that I have on my DVR. I just can't get enough of these movies.

His movies are the movies that I watch when I'm home sick in bed. They are amazing. If you have not seen them, please rent them ASAP. You will not be disappointed.

Paula Will Not Return to Idol

American Idol's Season 9 will be back on the air in January of 2010 minus one judge. Paula has decided that she will not return to American Idol for its 9th season because she was not offered a "fair" deal.

The conflict began when Ryan Seacrest signed a $45 million, 3-year deal, making him the highest paid reality tv host ever.

The three other judges, Simon, Randy, and Kara, all received deals that they were happy with.

However, Paula could not be pleased.

Abdul, who felt she was worth $20 million, was only offerred about half of that. And so, we have a new season of American Idol with the original 3-judge platform.

I did think that American Idol would eventually return to 3 judges, but I, just like most other people, thought Kara would be the one to go.

It really makes you wonder if this was a plan to get Paula out and already have a good replacement set up. Having Kara come in as a judge at a time when controversy and negative press with Paula was at a high, producers were able to get the audience used to Kara, and have her train (for lack of a better word) for an entire season. Thereby alleviating any stress that would accompany replacing Paula this season.

Shemar Moore Hit By a Car

Shemar Moore of "Criminal Minds" was taken to a hospital on Saturday after being hit by a car while riding his bicycle in Los Angeles.

Currently, he is at his home nursing his broken leg and resting after his brief hospital stay.

The actor, who is 39 and gorgeous (as if you hadn't already noticed), is "doing okay," according to his reps.
