This week starts with a shout-out to Giuliana and hubby Bill Rancic! Their baby shower is on June 17, at which time they will announce the sex of their baby. You may recall that they have a surrogate carrying their baby. After all Giuliana has been through, we couldn't be happier for them!
Proud new mama Jessica Simpson has shown off her new little girl, Maxwell Drew to People Magazine. Truthfully, to me, she looks like, well, a baby and a big one at that. Cute and all, but one $800,000 per picture cute? Most of us happily show off our new bundles for free! Then again, it's not nearly as much as Jessica will be making from the four million dollar Weight Watchers deal she has confirmed.
Jessica will be the new celebrity face of Weight Watchers as she tweeted Wednesday, "So excited to be part of the Weight Watchers family!" At that price, I'd be excited to be part of just about any family!
In "Kardashian" news, I have diligently kept up with them for you. Their show this season is fascinating! Bruce Jenner threw a spider at spider-phobic Kim, who got him back at him by -- spoiler alert -- setting him up to think her Ferrari had been stolen on his watch. My family plays that game all the time, only we do it with our Bentleys.
Speaking of Bentleys, the two younger K girls, are now being pimped out by mom and are miraculously qualified to be Seventeen Magazine scouts or consultants or some such thing. So, as one of them is driving a Bentley to their first gig, the other needs Kim's help to not be shy when approaching strangers about modeling opportunities. Oh, Kim wore a bunch of wigs to change things up this episode. I told you this stuff was just riveting!
On Sister Wives, wife number three, Christine, admitted to wife number four, Robyn, that she was jealous of her and felt badly about that.
Robyn replied, "I don't know what I'm supposed to do with that."
One suggestion is stop acting like you don't get it. But I digress. Christine takes herself to task for her jealousy yet I don't know about you, dear readers but if your husband took off with his fourth wife on a honeymoon while you were left nursing your 6-month-old and passel of other kids, I'd be a tad unhappy. You?
In "wow, that's incredible" news, Natalie Portman was seen at a playground with her baby boy. She was helping him down the slide. He enjoyed it. That's it. Look, if People found it interesting enough to note, then we do, too.
For anyone whose children's favorite program is driving them nuts, it could be worse. Much worse. It is well known that various prisons including Guantanamo Bay uses loud music to keep prisoners on edge. Heck, you attack a country, we'll force you to listen to Britney Spears for 12 hours.
But now, according to a recent documentary, "Songs of War," prisoners are being forced to listen to the Sesame Street theme song for hours on end. So we were right -- listening to kids shows all day can be crazy-making.
I must confess I did not watch The Bachelorette this week. Okay, I tried to watch it but it made my brain hurt. I will try again and give you what will most likely be a very interesting and juicy update next week. Until then, have a glamorous week!
