I’m so over this trash! Madonna bought a baby in Africa and got special treatment, because she’s rich and famous? What more to the story is there? Well, she’s going to be on Oprah today to set the story straight. She’s going to blame the media for blowing things out of proportion. Basically she’s going to say that she’s done nothing wrong and it’s all legal and she’s an angel sent from heaven to deliver beautiful unicorns to the poor children of the World. I liked her so much more on that disco cross.
From the Oprah website:
“I didn’t realize that the adoption was causing any controversy until I came back,” she says. “There were a million film crews in the airport and press camped outside my door. I don’t read newspapers or watch television, but all of my friends have let me know what everybody’s talking about and what’s going on in the news. So it didn’t really hit me until I got back to England. It’s pretty shocking.”
Madonna says that her critics don’t really understand how the Malawian adoption process works if they believe she used status to speed up the process of adopting David. “I assure you it doesn’t matter who you are or how much money you have, nothing goes fast in Africa,” Madonna says. “There are no adoption laws in Malawi. And I was warned by my social worker that because there were no known laws in Malawi, they were more or less going to have to make them up as we went along. And she did say to me, ‘Pick Ethiopia. Go to Kenya. Don’t go to Malawi because you’re just going to get a hard time.'”
“I’m financing a documentary about orphans in Malawi, so I was allowed to view footage and photographs of a lot of the children. An 8-year-old girl who is living with HIV was holding this child. I became transfixed by him. … But I didn’t yet know I was going to adopt him. I was just drawn to him.”
David had spent most of his life in an orphanage with 500 other orphans. Madonna didn’t know the state of David’s health when she was visiting Malawi and considering adopting David. She brought a pediatrician to test all of the children’s health for their overall well being, and later learned that David tested negative for tuberculosis, malaria, HIV and other common illnesses striking African orphans.
“When I met him, he was extremely ill,” Madonna says. “He had severe pneumonia, and he could hardly breathe. I was in a state of panic, because I didn’t want to leave him in the orphanage because I knew they didn’t have medication to take care of him. We got permission to take him to a clinic to have a bronchial dilator put on him. … He had pneumonia and was given an injection of antibiotics. He’s still a little bit ill, not completely free of his pneumonia, but he’s much better than he was when we found him.”
When Madonna first arrived in Malawi, she says she didn’t know anything about David’s parents. She was soon told that his mother had died of HIV and that his three siblings had also died of HIV. At the time, the Minister of Children and Mothers Welfare told Madonna that even though David’s biological father’s whereabouts were unknown, they would have to find him to give consent for the adoption.
“Here’s what I knew. David had been living in this orphanage since he was two weeks old,” Madonna says. “He had survived malaria and tuberculosis, and no one from his extended family had visited him since the time he arrived. So from my perspective, there was no one looking after David’s welfare.”
Once David’s father was located, he initially said he gave his son up for adoption always hoping that someone like Madonna would be able to give him a better life, and agreed to the adoption. Now, according to the press, David’s father is saying he did not fully understand what he was doing when he agreed to let Madonna adopt his son.
Basically, it goes on and on and you can visit the website or watch her on Oprah today to get the rest of it. That kind of shit bores me, so I won’t go into anymore details. I would be so pissed off to be in Oprah’s audience that day. I get told Madonna is going to be on and bitch is on a TV screen? Hell no!
Sharon Stone and Christian Slater showed up together to the 10th Annual Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles two nights ago. The pair worked the red carpet hand-in-hand. They also left through the back door together. This has fueled rumors that the pair are an item. Sharon, 48, and Christian, 37, are co-stars in Bobby and were there representing the film.
Sharon was wearing Christian’s tie most of the evening. It probably got around her neck when she was blowing him in the limo. I’m all for Sharon being with younger meat, but couldn’t she get hotter shit than this. Christian probably has a hairy dick and that’s just sick.
Isaiah Washington has issued an apology for his actions during an argument with his Grey’s Anatomy co-star, Patrick Dempsey. During the fight Isaiah used a homophobic slur which may have led to his other co-star, T.R. Knight, coming out of the closet.
Isaiah said, “I sincerely regret my actions and the unfortunate use of words during the recent incident on-set. Both are beneath my own personal standards. … I have nothing but respect for my coworkers … and have apologized personally to everyone involved.”
He was scheduled to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres show, but cancelled at the last minute. This isn’t the first time that Isaiah has clashed at co-stars. Over the past few days reports have surfaced that he isn’t very fun to work with.
Sources on the set claim everything is back to normal. Hey, this is ratings magic for ABC. They should re-enact the argument and air it on TV. Don’t be surprised if they do. You know when that argument broke out, the writers ran over there with tape records and shit. Better yet, the writers should make his character a fag!!!
At least he apologized, but that still doesn’t change the fact that he’s an asshole.
Everyone knows that Vincent Gallo is as greasy as they come, so it’s no surprise that he’s dating someone 29 years younger than him. Vincent, 45 is getting it on with Cory Kennedy, 16. Cory is a Los Angeles party girl that blogs about her party life. Blah, blah, blah…she’s so shiny.
Vincent told Page Six, “With the psychotic, middle-aged Madonna out there on the loose buying up all the stolen Negro babies in Africa, I felt it my social and humanitarian duty to take in any young, beautiful and sexy orphaned Jew teens running wild in Beverly Hills. Cory’s a great kid, and I’m proud to be her daddy.”
Gulp. Vincent claims he hasn’t effed her yet. I find it hard to believe. Cory is a piece of trash and so he is, so they belong together. I know people are going to say that a 16-year-old shouldn’t be at parties and shit, but I did that sort of crap when I was 16. I’m not one to talk.
She’s really too young to get some kind of dirty STD though. Oh well, you can’t win em all!
Responding to Michael J.Fox’s commercial for Missouri Senate Challenger Claire McCaskill, radio host Rush Limbaugh said, “He is moving around and shaking, and it is purely an act. If this was not an act, then I apologize”
The 30-second spot feature Michael, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, speaking for McCaskill who supports stem-cell research. He shakes throughout the spot, a condition that is associated with the disease. Michael’s spokeswhore is outraged and said, “It’s an appalling, sad statement. Anybody who understands Parkinson’s disease knows it’s because of the medicine that one experiences involuntary movements like those Fox shows in the commercial.”
I know that when I posted this clip yesterday, some readers also felt he was exaggerating his condition for the cameras. Sure, it’s possible but impossible to prove. Making those kind of assumptions or accusations also attacks Michael’s personal character. Rush has every right to say whatever he wants, but he’s also calling Michael a manipulator and a phoney.
I just want all this to end and Alex P. Keaton to wake me up with a warm cup of cocoa. Not Mallory though, because she’s a bitch.
Comment Note – The comments are wonky in IE and we’re working on them. It will be back to normal ASAP. Sorry sluts!
BWE has a clip of yesterday’s The View where Elisabeth Hasselcrack goes on and on about a Law & Order episode which featured a character named “Elisabeth Hassenbeck” that was raped and killed. She was upset by this and called the executive producer who basically hung up on her ass. Bitch says that there’s probably only one person with that name and she finds it hard to believe it was just coincidence as the producer suggested. She finds it socially irresponsible for the show and says she can never sit next to anyone associated with the show. Um…well looks like you’re going to be home a lot, because every damn working actor in NYC has been on that show. Dumb slag!
