Agree with Goddess. If the ex wife and kids get the shaft after what he's put them through, this double sucks for them.

Yeah, his PR person needs to talk to his agent, because that perk definitely backfired. Makes me not so impressed with Apple, either. But Apple has done a fair job of undermining its iconoclastic image for a while now. Too bad they don't put a value on goodwill. Oh wait, they do.

I don't mean to call anyone a liar, but...I'm having a really hard time buying that this is the body of someone who gave birth (after gaining 30 lbs) two months prior. Even assuming she lost 4 lbs a week, where did all the skin go? And where did her abs come from? Don't your abs kind of get played out when they're stretched over a beach ball? I ask because I really don't know. I know a mom-of-three who has a tummy like that, but it's been a year since the last one and she gained no more than 7 lbs for any of them. (When I told her I was pg she assured me "it's a myth that you have to gain more than ten pounds!" - at which point, I was 12 weeks and had already gained 14. Wah.)

I feel like we'd get along also. But I faded after the second season of Tori & Dean and stopped watching. All the drama was so manufactured. I liked the show when I could identify - when it seemed like they were struggling and (relatively) normal people - like when they were looking for houses and had a toddler and actually had a budget and stressed out over a genuinely stressful transaction. The show seemed like what my life might be like if I lived in L.A. and were wealthy. But then a newer, bigger house magically appeared overnight, and Dean was handed acting gigs by what I assumed were sister stations, eh, their life stopped being real(ish) and I stopped caring.

LOL, Jennifer. Also, I'm assuming she had to take the chaps/waist-cape off to go through the metal detector.

Bleah. I don't understand troll dolls. But then, I always thought Cabbage Patch kids were ugly as sin.

I enjoyed the occasional McDonald's when I was a kid. I played in the playground, I even had McDonald's bedsheets. But I don't think I ever *requested* we go there for a meal. Restaurant choice was simply never child-directed in my family. We never got the Happy Meal anyway because of the extra expense (and I didn't like fries or soda). Where were the lawsuits when people were buying Happy Meals just to get the Beanie Babies and then *throwing away the food*? That whole scene made me sick. Because of my happy memories, I would probably take my kid to a McDonald's in a pinch, especially now that I hear they're sourcing meat from New Zealand. Less Mad Cow and e Coli! If it's domestic meat, though, we'll still stay away because I am paranoid and feel bad about most American cows.

Awesome headline. Me, I've always thought I would really like her - until the husband stealing thing. Since then I've been at war with myself. You know, just in case she calls to have lunch.

OT: One needs a flesh-toned brassiere or camisole under that top.

When I was young, a scoop at Baskin Robbins cost about a dollar. This being so, I measured the price of EVERYTHING in scoops of ice cream. I don't think my brain could have handled the concept of unlimited ice cream for life, because what else is money FOR? You could barter for anything with ice cream. These people are rich TIMES INFINITY!

We saw that last night, too, and I had to rewind the commercial just to make sure my husband heard it right.

Also class of '91, although I was in Tokyo. Competitive flower acquisition was the name of the game. People would walk around with these insane armsful of literally dozens of bouquets, leaving sad trails of squashed petals in their wake. A friend recently reminded me that our little group had pledged to give one another other as many red roses as we got A's, because we were enormous dorks. And then at graduation rehearsal I dropped a big stack of chairs on my toe, the nail turned black, I had to have it drained and I hobbled through graduation with one white heel (my first pumps!) and one flip-flop and a huge, bandaged toe. Weak.

SuzyQ! You are right! It IS a bifurcating garter belt! Except that I think that wasn't obvious to the airbrusher, either, because the shading doesn't totally make sense unless that thing is really cutting into her butt.

Oh, I'm glad for VioletMonkey's comment. For her to be a homewrecker would have been the height of irony.

Yes, her left cheek is bizarre in that last one. I got a haircut kind of like that earlier this year. It was really cute the first day, and then my forehead broke out and my bangs constantly get in my eyes so I'm wearing bobby pins all the time. Don't do it.

Oh, boo, there's a Threadless t-shirt I've been wanting. Sorry, Threadless, I guess my closet is full enough. This - all of it - is grosser than gross.

*sigh* Is this really how a bankrupt state should be spending its nonexistent resources? There's got to be a more efficient way of dealing with this stuff. (Or maybe this back and forth is still cheaper than prison.)

I took a pretty black stone from a Hawaiian beach once - which you are NOT supposed to do, because it upsets Pele - because I thought it would be a perfect addition to my new Hot Stone Massage Kit. So when we got back I offered my husband a hot stone massage, heated up the stones in my crock pot as the internet told me to do - and gently placed the stones on my husband's back, whereupon he yelped "DAMN that's hot!!" and ran away, never to request a massage again. True story. Don't mess with Pele, people.

I had to google Silly Bandz as well. Eh, they're not so different from the rubber bracelets of my youth, and not much more expensive, adjusted for inflation. I'll give em a pass. From the commentary I was expecting them to be something more extreme, like slap bracelets with extra barbed wire.

Maybe it's a baby bump!!!! No? Are we not doing that any more? I think 5'8" is tall. I read somewhere that average height for U.S. females is like 5'4".

I haven't been keeping up. I don't know what idiotic things he said! I never thought he was a tool, just lame. His wife looks nothing like Stands With A Fist, which bursts that bubble for me, anyway.

My first reaction was, "She's that old?" And then I remembered that I turn 37 in two months.

:( also. I'm surprised she was only 76 because it meant she was really young when she moved into the GG retirement community. I thought she was meant to be grandmotherly, but she was just a little older than my parents.

Eh, I get the annoyance, but as a first time pregnant person I look at EVERYBODY now to see whether they might be PG. (And now that I'm looking for them, pregnant people are everywhere.) So I was actually excited to see Gwen's apparent Sea Bands-as-fashion-accessories. Because celebrities! They're just like us! And I was hoping that Kate Hudson hadn't succumbed to boob job pressure.
