And The Celebrity Connection Has Been Found

January 10, 2011 / Posted by:

Because the media has to find a celebrity connection with every single real news story that happens in the U.S., Mary Hart’s interns topped searching Ancestry.com to see if she is indeed the secret love child of Rosie the Robot and a Howdy Doody wax figure (SPOILER ALERT: she is), and instead focused their energy on trying to pull a famous name out of the Tucson shooting. They have succeeded, because Entertainment Tonight brings us the highly important news that Gwyneth Paltrow is related to congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Fishsticks’ late father was the first cousin of Gabrielle Gifford’s father, thus making them second cousins. ET asked Fishsticks to comment on the tragedy and she did:

“Although I have never had the pleasure of meeting congresswoman Giffords, my thoughts and prayers are with her and her family as well as the other victims of this horrible act of senseless violence.”

UsWeekly says that Sophia Bush, that girl from Zero Stump Molehill, also Tweeted that she’s the second cousin of the young girl who was killed in the shooting.

Aaaaand now you know.

Our commenting rules are pretty simple: If you make any overly offensive comment (racist, bigoted, etc..) or go way off topic when not in an Open Post, your comments will be deleted and you will be banned. If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, flag it for the mods and they'll be forever grateful and give you their first born (although, you probably don't want that).
